Pollyanna, how long did that take and at what doses? Where did you hear about it? Did you read something or did someone just tell you to do it? Was it just your fingers or more places? How long had you had it? did you do JUDDD or otherwise change/restrict your diet? *interested*

Gosh, I am not arthritic, but I have a family member who is and desperately wish I could help him. I recently heard on the news that folks who suffer should not eat nightshades? Not sure if this is something that may help or not.


Potatoes, tomatoes, sweet and hot peppers, eggplant, tomatillos, tamarios, pepinos, pimentos, paprika, and cayenne peppers are classified as nightshade foods.

The comments below this article seem to point to a connection...

I've been hearing about this for at least 20 years;
it is very effective for some people, but a tough way to live!!!

I agree, because I love tomatoes. I guess I don't get why they are considered poison for some folks? You know, I remember seeing a naturopath a long time ago for health issues and one of the first questions they asked me was if I ate many tomatoes or potatoes?

I don't eat tomatoes or eggplant. Once in awhile have a few salt and vinegar potato chips or a super crunchy french fry off hubby's plate as I hate soggy fries and never order them. Once in a while I have clam chowder, maybe twice a year. Otherwise I stay away from potatoes too. Once in awhile will have tomatoes with salsa but I tend to go to the mango salsa anyway which has few tomatoes. Once in a great while will have spaghetti but otherwise, I stay away from nightshades. I guess if I totaled that all up would be once a month? or so?

I just got my rhumatol and took my first dose. I will certainly let you know how it does - google it if you're interested. From a company called hello life.

The Rhumatol I take is liquid, there was another one with the same name from a different company that was a capsule but it got discontinued. Just in case anyone is looking for it.

I have taken it for two days and so far I "think" it helps with pain for me. That deep deep ache in my hip seems less fairly quickly after dosing and lasts a few hours. It says twice a day, but can take 3 times, so I'm going to do 3 x for this first week, as the testimonials seem to indicate it can be accumulative.

Just stumbled across a couple things yesterday, want to give a quick mention before I go to bed:

Gelatin: unflavored, approx 1tbsp in the am & another in the pm
(Dana Carpender has some blog entries on it, and some people commented that they tried it & helped their arthritis. Also, plantar fasciitis!

Boron/borax: 1/8tsp in a liter of water, once a day, 3-4 days per week.

(Yes, some people actually use the 20 Mule Team stuff. Although it's used for cleaning & laundry, it's not a detergent in & of itself; it's a mineral. "Pharmaceutical grade" is available as well, if anyone's nervous about ingesting something from the laundry aisle. mountainroseherbs sells a "cosmetic grade" borax.)

Although I do not have arthritis myself, I am sharing these because I read several testimonials that people experienced some degree of relief within 24 hours, and a great deal of improvement within 2 weeks-2 months.

I had tried gluten-free with no change in my hip pain, then dairy-free with no change. It was only when I took out all grains, dairy and sugar that I became completely pain-free. ("If you are sitting on two tacks, removal of one tack does not provide 50% pain relief"--Dr. Sidney M. Baker. Meaning you must remove all the "tacks".)

Grains (not just wheat or gluten in my case), dairy and sugar were all inflammatory for me.

In addition, I mostly avoid the nightshade vegetables: tomato, potato, eggplant, pepper. (these did not cause hip pain, but too much causes arthritis in my index finger).

The Paleo diet--meats, vegetables and fruit (just a small amount of berries with breakfast), completely resolved my hip arthritis.

I hope this is helpful to someone else still suffering.

After many years NOT taking glucosomine I started taking 1,500 twice daily after reading this.

That was less than a week ago and I am really noticing that I a have hardly any pain.

I am also taking DE, 1T each night and 250 Magnesium, DE for about 4 weeks, Magnesium for about 5 months, I have been taking vitamin D3 drops for about 6 months too.

Otherwise no changes except for not bouncing around at my Zumba for 2 months.

This is very impressive, how long before you saw the improvement?

I would love to report that the Rhumatol is helping. But I can't, because I fell 10 days ago and injured both hips, both knees, right arm, shoulder, neck, elbows, wrists of both hands, and twisted as I went down through the ribcage both front and back. I had been taking it for a few days and I really did feel better, but of course, now am inflamed again. The fall set off inflammation in my entire body, it really shook me up, and even in the hand that was fine now hurts from hitting the concrete. I have continued to take it, and I *think* it helps. Again, it appears to be accumulative so I keep taking it.

I am also using a little machine from Sound Vitality called an Infratonic 9. It is kinda like an ultrasound machine, but no goop and you can use it all day right through your clothes. I think it has helped with the healing from the fall. You plug it in and charge it and the charge lasts like 50 hours. I sleep with it, too, right on the hip or wherever I decide to put it for the night (I'm not a thrasher LOL). It modulates a non-repeating pattern so that your body doesn't get "used" to it and ignore it that way.

About nightshade plants, I only react with joint pain to potaotes and hot peppers although I haven't eaten eggplant in 40 years so don't know about it. I still eat tomatoes moderately BUT if I eat jalapeno peppers on anything, I will be in severe pain the next day. Same with white potatoes. Try eliminating them all and then adding one back in at a time and it will be obvious which ones if any cause pain.

Ow, C'Marie, that sounds pretty horrific. You poor thing. Sending you lots of healing.

Adi, I have never thought about the nightshades before reading this thread. I don't think I can live without chillies.

Within a few weeks--it was pretty surprising. I may try to add back heavy cream to my coffee. It's the main thing I really miss.
