Cinnamon and Arthritis
Cinnamon Arthritis - the Arthritis pain is nothing to joke about. It makes for miserable lives. Cinnamon could be used in two ways..
- Consume Cinnamon and Honey
- Apply as a tincture to put on painful and swollen joints
Cinnamon and Honey
The best quality organic honey would be preferable as well as Ceylon Cinnamon. One cup of hot water with two spoons of honey in it and one small teaspoon of Cinnamon. This can be taken once or twice during the day (i.e. in the morning and before bed). If this is too sweet, then reduce the honey to one teaspoon. Similarly if the Cinnamon taste is too hard to take, then reduce it to half a teaspoon. It seems only important that honey and cinnamon are present in the mix. It really depends on what works for you.
Cinnamon as a TincturePlease click the link “What is real Cinnamon” to identify real Cinnamon from Cassia
Mix one part honey to two parts of lukewarm water and add a small teaspoon of Cinnamon powder until it forms a paste. Massage this paste onto the itching / painful part of your body in a slow circular motion. Many people have found that their pain gets noticeably less within a matter of minutes.
Considering that there are a large number of people being helped every day by taking this concoction of honey and cinnamon to relieve their arthritis pain, I would imagine it's definitely worth a try. If it doesn't work right away (although many people do report an immediate effect), please try it out for a minimum of four weeks.
There really is nothing to loose and everything to gain!
Cinnamon is definitely something to include in your family's medicine cabinet - even though honey and cinnamon reside in the kitchen!
Make sure that the Cinnamon you take is real Cinnamon and not Cassia a substitute for Cinnamon.
