A very simple and fast way to get rid of the arthritis or rheumatoid pain is by drinking one glass of water with the juice from ½ lemon every morning before breakfast. In just a few days, the pain will disappear. Lemon juice is extremely efficient in eliminating the uric acid that usually stores in the joints producing rheumatoid and arthritic pain or even kidney inflammations.
Lemon Peel Tincture – Recipe
Most of us don’t know that the lemon peel contains 5 – 10 times more vitamins and minerals than the lemon juice. At the same time, it is an important source of fiber, potassium, magnesium, folic acid, calcium, beta-carotene and citrus bioflavonoids that are helpful in reducing the oxidative stress.
– 3 lemons
– 200 ml vodka
Wash the lemons with apple cider vinegar, then grate them or remove the peel and cut it in small pieces. Put the peel in a glass jar, pour the vodka and close tightly. Let it soak for about 5 days. Once this interval has passed, you can use the tincture for rubbing the painful joints. You will immediately notice the calming effects.
You can also add grapefruit and orange peels to this tincture , as they have similar effects. To make the tincture more efficient, you must add a few drops of arnica oil, tea tree essential oil or camphor oil.
The scented oils in the lemon peel will relax the blood vessels and will produce an anti-inflammatory effect that will offer relief for local pain.
Another old remedy is to simply rub the painful areas of your body with a lemon peel. After that, bandage them and leave them on for 1 – 2 hours. This treatment is extremely efficient for joint pain.
