Hi,
I am 51 years old and have Osteoarthritis in pretty much every joint of my body except my hands.
The trouble is....I cannot afford to pay for all these medications/supplements that I have been told that I need to take to relieve pain.
The only thing I can pretty much afford is Ginger.
I was told that I need therapy at least 3x a week and at 70 bucks a shot that is impossible. I can't even afford 1x a week. I am now unemployed. I can't even find a job that I don't have to stand for long periods of time so I am at a loss how to help myself.
Any suggestions?

Hi, I have severe osteoarthritis in my ankle (due to a break in the joint some years ago)and because my body does not tolerate prescription medications I had to look for supplements and I found that Tumeric & Ginger Tablets are a life saver for me. They help settle the inflamation for me. I hope this helps you as well. Esther

Thanks so much Esther. I will try that. I do drink Ginger tea so I'm sure the taking the tablets too will help more.
Thank you for your reply!

Have a great day!
