Apple cider vinegar and Arthritis
Use the apple cider vinegar and honey treatment for arthritis and also apply apple cider vinegar externally to painful joints. This entails drinking a glass of water with two teaspoons of cider vinegar and two teaspoons of honey three times a day.
Local treatment can also be given by soaking the arthritic hand, or foot in a strong, comfortably hot solution of cider vinegar for ten minutes, two or three times a day - (a quarter of a cup of cider vinegar to one and a half cups of water).
Arthritic knees can be attended to by making a poultice - soak a cloth in a mixture of cider vinegar and water, (as per above mixture) wring out and wrap it around the joint, then secure with a dry cloth to retain heat.
When the wet cloth cools, it should be wrung out in the hot solution and applied afresh. Repeat several times, twice daily.
