Tips on celery seeds
I have osteoarthritis and have found that a 'brew' of celery seeds to be very beneficial for the pain.
Put a couple of dessert spoons in about a pint of water, simmer for a while and strain off into a (heated) jar. Cool, and then keep in the fridge in a screw top jar. This will set slightly, then once or twice a day put a dessert spoon of this into a glass of water and drink.
It tastes rather foul (and it stinks the house out while boiling the seeds) but after a few days the difference to joint pain is amazing.
