Cinnamon and Honey:
Honey is the only food on the planet that will not spoil or rot. It will do what some call turning to sugar. In reality honey is always honey.. However, when left in a cool dark place for a long time it will do what I rather call “crystallizing” . When this happens I loosen the lid, boil some water, and sit the honey container in the hot water,turn off the heat and let it liquefy. It is then as good as it ever was. Never boil honey or put it in a microwave. To do so will kill the enzymes in the honey.
Cinnamon and Honey
Bet the drug companies won’t like this one getting around. Facts on Honey and Cinnamon: It is found that a mixture of honey and Cinnamon cures most diseases.. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also accept honey as a ‘Ram Ban’ (very effective) medicine for all kinds of diseases. Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases.
Today’s science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients.

Osteoarthritis can be a very painful condition, so pain relief is usually an important component of treatment. Typically, anti-inflammatory drugs like non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) and analgesics, like Tylenol, are used for this purpose.
However, while these can be effective pain relievers, it’s very important to understand that regular, chronic use of these types of medications is associated with significant, and very serious, side effects such as kidney and/or liver damage.
NSAIDs also kill some 30,000 people every year due to bleeding ulcers, and the oral drugs have been linked to a host of problems including heart failure — Vioxx and Celebrex are prime examples of these very real dangers. So I recommend that you try out some safer, natural anti-inflammatory alternatives instead, including:
Boswellia serrata is similar to frankincense, one of the gifts brought by the Wise Men to celebrate the birth of Jesus. The frankincense used in the West is usually Boswellia carteri, an herb whose properties have not been studied nearly as much as one might think given the Biblical references. At the university hospitals of Bochum and Giessen, patients with gliome tumors were administered 3600 mg. per day of Boswellia serrata. Within only a few days, many symptoms associated with brain tumors, such as headaches and lameness, were greatly lessened. While much of this effect might be more related to the reduction in edema than to the regression of the tumor, swelling and the resultant pressures are serious side effects of malignancy that impact the quality of life. The reports of these trials are preliminary and researchers are unwilling to speculate as to the long-term results and whether or not tumor growth is arrested. Studies have shown that boswellic acids have an anti-inflammatory action, much like the conventional nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) used for inflammatory conditions. Boswellia inhibits pro-inflammatory mediators in the body, such as leukotrienes. As opposed to NSAIDs, long-term use of boswellia does not appear to cause irritation or ulceration of the stomach. One small, controlled, double-blind trial has shown that boswellia extract may be helpful for ulcerative colitis. Treatment with boswellia could be 5 to 10 capsules per day and generally last eight to twelve weeks. Boswellia is generally safe when used as directed. Boswellia – An Ayurvedic herb which supports consistent blood flow to your joints, boosting flexibility and strength. Particularly useful against arthritic inflammation and associated pain.
HYALURONIC ACID (HA):
Hyaluronic acid is a key component of your cartilage, responsible for moving nutrients into your cells and moving waste out.
Astaxanthin is one of the most powerful lipophilic antioxidants yet discovered and is the most abundant carotenoid pigment found in crabs, salmon, trout, shrimp, and krill. Studies have found that it can help support joint health and mobility.
Elastin, collagen and glycosaminoglycans are three nutrients found in eggshell membranes, which can help support the stability and flexibility of your joints by providing your joints with the building blocks needed to build cartilage.
This herb is anti-inflammatory and offers pain relief and stomach-settling properties. Fresh ginger works well steeped in boiling water as a tea or grated into vegetable juice.
This enzyme, found in pineapples, is a natural anti-inflammatory. It can be taken in supplement form, but eating fresh pineapple may also be helpful.
Cetyl myristoleate (CMO):
This oil, found in fish and dairy butter, acts as a “joint lubricant” and an anti-inflammatory.
EVENING PRIMROSE, BLACK CURRANT AND BORAGE OILS:
These contain the essential fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA), which is useful for treating arthritic pain. It is reasonable for many to take these as a supplement, particularly if you struggle with dry skin in the winter, as this is a strong indicator that you are deficient in these fats. I prefer the use of GLA supplements from evening primrose oil but borage oil contains a higher concentration of GLA, which means you need fewer capsules, and it tends to be less expensive.
Also called capsaicin cream, this spice comes from dried hot peppers. It alleviates pain by depleting the body’s supply of substance P, a chemical component of nerve cells that transmits pain signals to your brain.
Some of the medicinal properties for which turmeric has been studied include balancing blood sugar, supporting and detoxifying the liver, reducing inflammation, relieving allergies, and cancer.<P>Dr. Bharat Aggarwal, head of a 12-member team of researchers at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, was quoted as saying that his clinical research has found not only the “The master switch to turn off cancer, but also a cure for it. Turmeric contains two to five percent of curcumin. It was already known that curcumin can prevent cancer, we are providing evidence that curcumin can work on at least one dozen cancers.” “In fact”, he added, “we have not found a single cancer on which curcumin doesn’t work.”
Turmeric has long been used as a food preservative, a coloring agent, a spice to flavor food. Turmeric has been used extensively in foods in India and Pakistan where the incidence of cancer, especially breast, colon prostate and lung cancer is a lot less. Turmeric has been shown to relieve arthritis as well, he added. The UT team’s research focused on how Turmeric stops laboratory strains of melanoma from proliferating, and pushes the cancer cells to commit suicide.
A UCLA study shown that Turmeric inhibits the accumulation of destructive beta amyloids in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients. Turmeric is more effective in inhibiting formation of the protein fragments than many other drugs being tested to treat Alzheimer’s. We have known all along about the anti-inflammatory benefits of turmeric and now there is documented proof of Turmeric’s other benefits. The dose is between 1.5 gm and 3 gm per day.
