Hi,
I have been massaging my knee (arthritis and torn meniscus) with peanut oil.
(recommended by healer and prophet Edgar Cayce).
Seems to help with the pain.

Also have seen cabbage leaves recommended for arthritis pain.
I've only tried it a couple of times and haven't noticed any benefit, but it may be I haven't done it often enough or long enough.

It's a "folk remedy". There is a university in Germany which is doing a study of cabbage leaves for relief of pain of osteoarthritis.

Ellen - I know whenever I visit my rheumatologist that he has a video explaining the health benefits of RAW onions for arthritis pain. Apparently about 1/4 cup a day is beneficial.
