I have been taking 4 ounces of black cherry juice every day for three months and have stopped all prescription drugs and even my old mainstay, Alleve. It is wonderful.
During the summer months I ate black cherries liberally and dried some for the winter. Only time will tell how long it will help.
I wish there would be a research project on this cherry juice/arthritis issue because it would be a great alternative to drugs for the painful symptoms that many experience. I read that they knew some of black cherry juice possibilities in the 50s.
I have been trying to find out more info about the dose.
I have osteo from several malformed vertebrates from birth. I was in a car accident and the condition accelerated. I was in so much pain and taking all kinds of medicine. Finally, I saw a person talking about black cherry juice on the Today Show and I tried it.
I do not think this treatment is just psychological. I did not take the juice while on vacation and did not take it for several weeks, the pain returned. After a few days on Alleve I got back home to the cherry juice and got immediate relief within a few days.
I found a bottle of concentrate at the pharmacy and will take it with me in case I cannot find pure black cherry juice when I travel.
