Just what do knee pain, honey, garlic and vinegar have in common?

- A real suspense story ... about knee pain
- Why honey, garlic and vinegar could help you avoid joint pain
Knees don't just bend... they suspend as well!
Apparently an old friend of mine had been to the doctors because of knee pain and ankle pain.
"The doc seemed to think I have the same problem - the motors fine but the suspension is ruined."
That's a really interesting way to consider the role our knees and ankles take in the normal functioning of our bodies. I hadn't thought of it like that before.
We tend to think that our joints act solely to make movement possible, and forget that we subject them to all sorts of stresses and strains as we go about our daily activities. In particular the jolts that go through the body from stepping down from a bus, climbing up and down stairs and hopping over a pothole in the pavement.
Research from America has shown that a runner weighing 150 lbs would subject each knee to between 60 and 90 tonnes of force each mile that they ran.
Now I don't do so much running these days (and weighing 150 lbs is an unachievable dream!) But just by walking about I am putting several tonnes of load into each knee each day.
It's no wonder then that some of us get a little sore around the joints as we age - it is just good old wear and tear.
Why honey, garlic and vinegar could relieve your knee pain
Unfortunately we don't have grease nipples in the sides of our legs that would allow us to top up the lubricants. If we did we might avoid the rigours of daily life, and the accumulation of years of abuse
But I learnt a long time ago how a simple daily routine can help me manage those general aches and pains - it was one of the many discoveries I made when I wrote The Honey, Garlic & Vinegar Miracle
Vinegar, and especially unpasteurised Apple Cider Vinegar, contains enzymes which help stop calcium being deposited with the joints. This is one of the effects of arthritis on the body.
In addition if you sweeten the spoonful of vinegar with a little Manuka honey, you also get the benefit of the anti-inflammatory characteristics as well.
It amazes me that so many GP's (and so many sufferers!) just accept the effects of arthritis without trying to do anything about it, other than take painkillers when it gets too bad.
The skeleton is a living tissue which grows and repairs throughout our life, so why give up on it when it starts to struggle because of all the potholes we have hit? Do your own maintenance and you can to improve the workings of the body - it's no different to the reason why you check the oil in the car.

As I write Lara has gone to collect the car and will discover the cost of damaged suspension. I bet she drives home much slower than usual!
Unfortunately our knees can't just have a radical overhaul other than uncomfortable and invasive knee replacement surgery. If all it takes to prolong the day when you have to visit the mechanic is a simple capsule don't you think it's worth it?
Yours, as always
