    I have arthritis in my knees too and I have the opposite problem. If I walk too much they start to ache and swell up really bad. Normal everyday walking is okay, but Disney does me in every time The glucosamine did nothing for me and since it's expensive I stopped taking that too. I usually just stick to Advil and ice and hope for the best.

    What is Bromelain?

    The dr did recommend glucosamine but said it would take several months to work. Well it will be warm by then and I won't be able to tell if it was the pill or the warmth that fixed it

    I don't take the Tylenol too often. I am not supposed to take Advil due to the surgery I had. I absolutely cannot tolerate Aleve. It eats my stomach up!

    ok Sarah, what island shall we move to?

    It might be a foreclosed home. The only problem with them is that they will still be taxed at what they are worth, not what you bought it for.

    Sanford...Im sorry its 64,900...and even if there is taxes on it Ill still be alright...the house I live in I bought for $150,000 (unique fixer upper opportunity) and I am fixing it up...a house identical to mine down the street just sold for 259,500. So Im pretty sure Ive got good equity..not to mention I have a MUCH larger lot than they did.

    HERE is the house I was talking about

    I don't know how many of the claims are true but we both swear by it.


    Bromelain has powerful anti-inflammatory actions and is widely used to reduce pain, swelling and inflammation associated with arthritis, sprains, wounds and soft tissue injuries. It is thought to promote tissue repair and has been shown to help reduce the bruising and pain that can follow minor operations or injury.
    Many people consider bromelain to be a safer, natural alternative to conventional treatment for joint problems and arthritis such as NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) and COX-II inhibitors. These are aimed at decreasing pain and improving function, but have been associated with serious side-effects. Research has shown bromelain to be of benefit for reducing knee pain (1), and reducing swelling in rheumatoid arthritis (2). It has also been shown to improve pain and mobility in osteoarthritis (3).

    In addition to the strong anti-inflammatory and painkilling properties, bromelain has a useful mucus-thinning action and can help with respiratory conditions such as sinusitis, bronchitis and asthma. It also has a natural blood thinning action, which can help explain the positive reports in some trials of bromelain to decrease the symptoms of angina and thrombophlebitis.
    Bromelain is an enzyme extracted from the stem of the pineapple plant, ananas comosus . It has been used as a medicinal plant in several native cultures as a natural weapon to combat inflammation and joint problems.
