I successfully used water, honey and vinegar to cure extreme joint pain from arthritis (psuedo gout), and extreme muscle pain from rheumatism (a/k/a fibromyalgia). On a scale of 1 to 10, I define "extreme" pain a 10. Any more pain would require passing out.
This cure occurred within 12 hours of my first dose of vinegar.
Recipe is 2 teaspoons of vinegar with 2 teaspoons of honey, in a warm cup of distilled water. Organic apple cider vinegar is best, like Bragg's, which costs $15 per gallon. Cheap apple cider vinegar from Walmart costs $2.50/gallon.
The vinegar apparently does most of the work, with honey sweetening the taste to apple juice. Cinnamon can be added, either powder or tree bark.
The biggest expense is honey -- best to buy local organic, not poisoned by GMO fructose (mercury) from Communist China. But true organic honey may be impossible to find due to Monsanto's Roundup GMO sabotage of the entire food chain.
White vinegar is supposedly not 100% safe to drink, but can be used in an emergency, which is what I used to successfully eliminate knee pain and neck pain the first day.
I've been 99% pain-free for 9 months, so long as I keep taking it three times every day. If I cut back to one per day, or don't take a dose before walking, then the pain comes back immediately.
Both apple cider vinegar and honey have potassium, not sodium, which reduces blood pressure and eliminates toxins.
The acidity of apple cider vinegar is a descaler that dissolves excess calcium phosphate crystals that cause gout, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and hardening of the arteries. Vinegar is an excellent descaler for distillers, teapots, sinks, bathtubs and toilets.
If urination becomes a problem due to excess calcium phosphate crystals causing urinary tract inflammation, I drink a warm cup of distilled water with a half teaspoon of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate). This is prescribed by my GP doctor, per the recomendation of Dr Paul St Armand, author of What Your Doctor Won't Tell You About Fibromyalgia and guaifenesin.
Sodium bicarbonate is also an EXTREMELY cheap cure for cancer, and is normally produced by the pancreas to neutralize stomach acid and raise pH in the small intestine.
Apple cider vinegar with honey appears to accomplish the same result of descaling the kidneys that guaifenesin does, without the side effects of extreme pain and depletion of bank account.
I have many books on natural cures, but none mentioned vinegar and honey as a cure for arthritis, rhematism or FMS. Certainly none of my doctors and specialists prosecribed it for what they diagnosed as my "incurable" disease, and subsequent disability due to lack of cure. I did not have this book:
Apple Cider Vinegar Miracle Health System
This Apple Cider Cure for arthritis was first told to me by a widow of a Hells Angel US military soldier, who herself used some natural cures to beat "terminal" Stage 4 lung cancer for over 5 years. (30 days of internal Hoxey Treatment was 'too extreme' she said, but may have saved her life during chemo.)
Adding a little apple cider vinegar to water bowls of pets eliminated inflammation, hair loss and extreme scratching on our labrador retreiver. Our cats also like it, and maybe it will help reduce their problem with tooth loss, perhaps due to unfiltered well water that's high in calcium-phosphate limestone (we've now switched to distilled).
"The most stunning statistic, however, is that the total number of deaths caused by conventional medicine is an astounding 783,936 per year. It is now evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the US. Using Leape's 1997 medical and drug error rate would add another 216,000 deaths, for a total of 999,936 deaths annually. Our estimated 10-year total of 7.8 million iatrogenic* deaths is more than all the casualties from all the wars fought by the US throughout its entire history. Our considerably higher figure is equivalent to six jumbo jets are falling out of the sky each day."
