Stephanie, bone broth is the best, but there are other remedies too. "Rosalind Wulzen, famous for her research on this anti-stiffness factor, (now called the Wulzen Factor), discovered that it protects mammals from degenerative arthritis, hardening of the arteries, cataracts, and joint and pineal gland calcification. Young calves fed pasteurized or skim milk developed joint stiffness, but Wulzen found that these symptoms are reversed by adding raw butterfat to their diets. Thus it became clear that the Wulzen Factor can be obtained only from raw butter, raw cream, and whole raw milk
, and that pasteurization destroys it. Levels found can vary dramatically from extremely high (in milk from cows that eat rapidly growing grass), to low or non-existent in cows fed hay
, grains, cottonseed, or soymeal feed." Read more at Suite101: Arthritis Pain - Feel Better With Butter: The Source of a Natural Painkiller You Can't Get Just Anywhere | Suite101.com http://suite101.com/article/arthritis-pain-feel-better-with-butter-a123301#ixzz233xmXXhF
Also, the spice turmeric is helpful for joint pain. You can find it in a capsule form or just buy the spice and using it generously on food (like veggies and eggs) or in water
as a "tea" (my favorite). Also, in the summer it is common to eat more of the nightshades: potatoes, tomatoes
, sweet and hot peppers, eggplant, tomatillos, tamarios, pepinos, pimentos, paprika, and cayenne peppers. These are known to contribute to joint problems, especially if you have existing joint problems like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or gout. "A temporary 2-3 week elimination of nightshade foods from your meal plan may be a worthwhile step to determine if these foods could be contributing to your joint problems.

I hope you find some relief!
