Home Remedy #2: Cherries

Cherries are stone fruits that come from the plants of the genus Prunus. As a home remedy for arthritis, the patient can eat between 6 to 8 cherries a day. They can be fresh, frozen, or tinned. This is an old Japanese remedy for arthritis. The cherries can also be boiled down into a syrup to make a sweet drink.

Cherries are a good source of potassium and magnesium. Magnesium is a natural painkiller while potassium has diuretic properties. The combination of both magnesium and potassium helps reduce inflammation by ridding the tissue of fluid. In a study conducted by Boston University Medical Center in 2012, the consumption of at least 10 cherries a day helps protect against recurrent attacks of existing gout.
