"Natural" remedies......?

BRENDA - December 24

Since we're on the topic of "OLD TIME" remedies,...I've got one!! It's (purple) grape juice & fruit pectin, like what you would use for making jellies & jams. You need to mix 1oz with 8oz of grape juice. It has been said to help with arthritic-type pain. The old folks swear by it! I have not tried it on a regular basis yet, but it can't hurt you! For those of us trying to lose some weight, it will fill you up, so you can use it to replace a meal! It has to be used daily, for several weeks before you see an improvement! Has anyone else tried this or heard of this?

Makes sense. Both fruit pecin and grape juice are sources of antioxidants. Probably a bit more cost effective source than an $18 bottle of mangosteen juice.....

No. I haven't, but I just ordered supplements, and there was one with pectin in it under the fibro category so I ordered it.

The best natural remedy for fibromyalgia for me has been a vegetarian diet (lacto-ovo) and water therapy. I find much relief in water whether it's a bath, a hot tub or a pool; it takes all the pressure off the tender points and allows you to move with relatively little pain. This is how I began my exercise program. I had to start very slowly but now I exercise in a simple backyard pool. I use a float so my legs are suspended and can move freely and I am now up to an hour each day.
Now, I am strong enough to use a Nordic track bike and exercise on that for another hour a day.
The exercise really helps the pain. I am 61 years old and never exercised regularly before so believe me this really helps. Hope this helps some of you.

This sounds interesting. I was just wondering if you have to worry about the sugar content aggravating everything. Just wondering since I hear no fruit juices and less sugar with fibro. But I will try anything to make this better!

I was a vegetarian for 3 or so years, and did horribly. My dr ordered me to EAT SOME MEAT ! LOL. I did gradually feel better as I slowly introduced meat back into my diet, but it was really gross after being off of it for so long.

after doing much research, i decided to self-heal myself with herbs and a vegetarian diet. i can't say it helps, but it couldn't hurt. I strictly eat fruits and veggies, no lactose or sugar, no soda, juices. For my herbs, i take B12, calcium , magnesium, zinc, anad a cranberry supplement. I am going to include the malic acid but you can get this thru apples.
