A remedy for arthritis pain using raw honey

Customers periodically share their favorite recipes with us, and this one really caught our attention. This woman experienced excellent results and even found out her doctor was doing the same thing for his arthritis pain! Let us know if you try it and how it works for you.

Here’s what she said...

Mix together:
1 cup of hot tea or water
2 Tablespoons raw honey
1 teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon*

Frequency:
Drink it twice a day to start - a half hour before breakfast and at night before bed. Give it a little time (a week or two?). When the pain is gone, reduce the frequency to once a day, then every other day as it seems right to you. (She now does it three times a week.)

* Our customer was very specific about using raw honey and Ceylon cinnamon in particular. The cinnamon will clump, so do your best to stir it in.

Drink up, and best wishes for good health!
