Good morning everyone...
My right knee has been hurting me SOOO bad due to arthritis in knee and now clicking sort of like my brothers arthritis clicking - docs gave him meds for it, go figure, but he doesnt want to take it...now my knee is throbbing and hard to step on when I get up in the morning until I walk on it for sometime - then it starts to feel better...does anyone know of anything I can take to help this..something natural?
I was hit my a drunk driver many years ago and they did x rays on my knees due to pain and said arthritis in both and one they thought I had torn cartlidge but I wouldnt let them do the MRI to see if I did cause I said I wouldnt let them cut me up to do that so just deal with it...
I am not 100% raw but striving to be and will be today - sometimes eat one healthy cooked meal but want to eliminate that and be 100% raw...I have the Good4U dehydrator that I bought from Alissa's site and just got my food processor in mail and need to take it out of the box....
Thanks everyone for your continued help - I couldnt be walking this journey without all your help :)

I have orteoarthritus in my hands and feet and find that wheatgrass is working wonders for me.
The lady that sells me the wheatgrass has told me that as a result of her chats with me she has started to take it herself and has gone off her arthritis meds completely (I was not gone on any) and she was on serious meds.
Half a tray 3 times a week will do it but go for more if you can.

Hey Sandy. I understand. An arthritic knee can be frustrating and painful. I broke my right knee 3 years ago and had numerous operations on it, including permanent screws in it and plates extending to my femur. My acupunturist told me to think of them as earrings. ha. And honestly this helped me. Anyway, I was told that I would have arthritis for the rest of my life. I didn't believe it and didn't bring it into my consciousness. Sure my knee was stiff and I couldn't bend it, but I kept seeing myself healed. I truly believe this is the key and where you have to start. Don't get programmed by what an orthopedic surgeon tells you. The knees are a tricky thing and they support our entire body weight which I know you know. They are hinges really. I just started seeing my knee moving freely - well oiled etc. :)
I simply refused to see myself with an arthirtic knee. I worked with Louise Hay's affirmations, had acupunture treatments, ate 100% raw foods, drank wheatgrass shots daily and added gingeroot to my daily smoothies. Ginger root reduces inflammation. I also researched what would break up scar tissue in the knee which was also impacting me.
I no longer have arthritis in my knee although I still cannot bend it completely due to the metal parts. It's a daily visualization routine I practice. Just staying positive and eating well...juicing and fasting.
I'm very biased about taking drugs and I honestly think this makes it worse. But trust your own information. Just wanted to share what worked for me and that everything is possible. Our bodies have an amazing capacity to heal. But it starts with us working in partnership with it - with our thoughts and internal belief system.
I ditto the wheatgrass juice recommendation. It's a miracle food and cell regenerator. :D

I wanted to add water fasting definately helped me move energy out of my knee. If you can, please research water and juice fasting which really helps heal arthritis. Raw foods do the same as well, but water fasting is very powerful when you're healing something like arthritis. Just my opinion and based on my personal experience.
My warmest wishes for your complete recovery.

I haven't had terriblebly arthritic knees, but I do alot of biking and sometimes my 67 y.o. knees would rrlaly bother me after a long, hilly ride. I took glucasomine for a few years and that helped. Then I ran out of it this summer--just forgot about replacing it and then was acing a very long, hilly 150 mile bike ride. When I finished that ride, which involved alot of "gruelling", i noticed that while I was very tired, nothing really hurt--not my knees, nor my low back, both sensitive areas in that situation. By golly, it was the raw food diet that healed me! So get that equipment going, and stick with it. It is very true that the body will heal if you treat it right! Good luck on your path to better health!
