Both my mother and my grandmother dealt with arthritis pain. When I was a little girl, my grandmother Catherine held up her gnarled hand with crooked fingers and told me, “This is what happens when you crack your knuckles. Never crack your knuckles.” While most studies seem to have found no correlation between knuckle cracking and arthritis, the image of grandma’s hand has stuck with me, and I know arthritis caused her pain. Mom never said much about it, but I’d see her rubbing her joints, and she always wore copper bracelets for the last several decades of her life. Just recently, I was talking to my neighbor, Betty. She told me that a friend of hers was on arthritis medication that knocked out her immune system so badly that she couldn’t kick a simple cold. Her story inspired me to write this post and assemble a list of home remedies for arthritis to provide her with some natural treatment alternatives.
