I read this article about lemons effect on arthritis. I will share it with you.
Lemon and the Uric Acid Connection
"Lemon has many useful effects on the body but I am mostly interested in its action against arthritis. Lemon is highly effective against uric acid which is constantly produced by the body; notice how uric acid reminds you of urine. Correct. It is passed out in the urine. When uric acid is not removed by the body as quickly as it should then the excess is deposited in the joints causing arthritis and rheumatic pain, and can produce inflammation of the kidneys as well.
I have used lemon juice to treat arthritis with the formula being half of a lemon squeezed into a glass of water just before breakfast. Within a few days I was pain free. I mean pain free. The cinnamon and honey cure does not come close. A glass of water with lemon juice has produced for me the most rapid improvement I have experienced without the use of anti-inflammatory."
I don't know if what he's saying is true but i 'm trying this out for my mom.
