    Though I'm a vegan, I have developed some arthritis in recent years, partly due to some injuries many years ago.

    Tai Chai can be very helpful, and I also use homeopathic ointments like Triflora and Arniflora that often work well for joint pain. Even Aloe gel is helpful (as it is for almost any complaint!)

    A search for "natural pain relief" will bring up many herbal remedies that are ingested as well.

    Arthritis/joint pain is usually a problem connected with opportunistic microorganisms in your body, or shortage of minerals.
    When I experience some pain, it's a sign to me that I shall go to a very hot steam-room more frequently and/or increase the amount of whole grains that I eat.
    If you don't have an excess to a steam-room somewhere around, you can change it for hot (up to 106F) water or mineralized water bath. It's impossible to take a very hot bath unless you warm water up gradually from your body temperature. The good sign that it's enough and you did it right is an intensive sweet on your forehead. Take it every day before going to bed for e week. Epson salt is a good mineral addition to the bath.
    Whole grains may be taken both sprouted (preferable), or boiled on a slow fire, or steamed. Red rice is a good supply of minerals. Other grains are also nice. I love them.

    I would like to say that as you are maintaining the diet, its good. But along with it, so regular exercise. If it is paining and not possible do it slowly. Because Body movement is very important. Get more information from
