My son Warren has arthritis and has been on medication for it for about four years.
This kind of arthritis is called Anklosing Spondilitis and usually starts in young people like 25-40 years. Warren has had it for about 10 years. If he doesn't take the medication he gets so sore he can't even do everyday things. (can't even cut his own meat)
Long story short, he started on the flaxseed oil [and cottage cheese] everyday, to see if it would help his arthritis. That was about six or so months ago. After being on the oil for about two weeks he started to have less pain and as the time went on he just got better, and better. Although he still had to take his medication. He just told me today that he stopped taking his medication over a month ago, and is feeling just fine. Looks great, and has lots of energy, and is now able to keep a full time job, which he could never do before, due to the pain. Even Warren's doctor is amazed and is now interested in the flaxseed oil.
