When you read on you will see that,  interestingly enough,  most of them have a basis in scientific facts.

Before we get there we gonna squeeze in one little section on exercise, OK?

Even though you are stiff and sore you must exercise, but always with respect for your body's limitations.

  • Walk or swim for 5 or 10 minutes every day, gradually increasing the amount of time you exercise,
  • Do stretching exercises such as yoga for movement.
  • Wear well cushioned shoes to help reduce any stress on weight-bearing joints.

Old Home Remedies for Arthritis in the fingers

Rub Castor Oil onto your arthritic joints often during the day.

  • Castor Oil has been used for centuries by physicians and apothecaries for its powerful medicinal and curative powers.

  • When applied topically it is well known to help with back pain and arthritis.

  • When castor oil is rubbed into the skin the oil is able to penetrate deeper than any other essential plant oil.

  • The main medicinal component of castor oil is Ricinoleic Acid which is analgesic, anti-inflammatory and also has antibacterial properties.

An old fashioned Embrocation for soothing aching joints as another one of our home remedies for arthritis.

Mix 2 cakes of camphor, 1 bottle of methylated spirits and a cup of Rue leaves. Allow to stand for 24 hours and then rub into painful areas 3 times a day and specially just before bedtime.

  • Camphor has both anti-inflammatory and anti-neuralgic properties.
  • Methylated spirits is a commercial grade disinfectant and it was probably only for this reason that it was added to this old home remedy for arthritis.
  • Rue has analgesic qualities.
