"Ouch" I've been suffering for the now second time in my life from an arthritis attack. Its in my foot. Gout? Maybe. In either case I tried many things: tart cherry pills, homeopathic remedies of great variety, enzymes. Finally the one thing that has proven effective is the yucca plan. I harvested and dried the root locally last year. I make a batch of tea each day by mixing it with other yummy tasting plants from the garden. I fill a mason jar and pop it in the fridge. A few times a day I chug a few gulps. It works!
