One of the more intense and not so pretty fact is that more women suffer arthritis than men. This subject is close to my heart even as I got my first bout of arthritis when I was nineteen years old. Yes, it runs in the family. One of my aunts first had hers even at a younger age.
One natural remedy that has made the arthritis at bay all these years is lemongrass tea that I make myself. I just take a sheaf cut it one inch long, boil it. Cool. Then flavor it with honey and lemon. Fifteen years of arthritis and I have not taken any arthritis medication or msm cream yet. Lemongrass is also said to be good for the skin too. 😀
