arthritis in hands

Old age brings all kinds of challenges. One of those is arthritis. This is a disease attacking bone joints in our body.

“Arthritis” literally means joint inflammation. Although joint inflammation is a symptom or sign rather than a specific diagnosis, the term arthritis is often used to refer to any disorder that affects the joints. Joints are places where two bones meet, such as your elbow or knee.

There are different types of arthritis. In some diseases in which arthritis occurs, other organs, such as your eyes, heart, or skin, can also be affected.

Fortunately, current treatments allow most people with arthritis to lead active and productive lives.

I have included this definition from the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, because it is brief and complete.

I am not a doctor nor have I had medical training, so this article will only deal from an experiential position.


I, personally have experienced, on two occasions, rheumatoid arthritis in my shoulders and arms. On both of these, I found it to go away after intercessory prayer. I guess my faith is not as strong in this time of life as earlier. I now needed to find some help from the medical field.

After asking my VA doctor how I could stop the pain and restricted use of my shoulders and arms.


Mankind has been gifted with necessary abilities to help fellow men, women and children. These gifts came from our Creator. I am so glad this is so. Why? Not all men have faith (scriptural truth). We often need help now, in this life, in ways that don’t require miraculous action, although the results may seem to be that way.

One of those actions happened to me in the last 2 years. I had a handyman business which often required getting into tight and physically challenging places, such as changing faucets on a bathroom vanity. Unless you have done this, you have no idea how this strains the body.

When arthritis returned, I found simple tasks like loosening the nuts holding the faucet on the vanity, which, by the way, are located behind the sink bowl and almost out of reach; certainly out of sight, unless you crawl inside the vanity on your back, shining a light upward to be able to see. This while laying on the door frame edge ( cutting into your back), and reaching into the 4-5 inch space between the sink base and the back of the vanity, to muscle the nuts loose to remove so the threaded shafts protruding from the faucet can be removed. Then, of course, the process is reversed to install the new faucet.

Pain and strain through the WHOLE process because of joints in shoulders, arms and fingers are restricted due to arthritis in ALL those bone connections.

I needed something miraculous to enable me to continue doing my job. My do0ctor suggested a topical gel called Diclofonate Sodium gel. I began treatment 4 times a day, rubbing this colorless, grease less, and odorless substance on shoulders (especially) and elbows, with bare hands so my hands got the treatment also. Within 6 months, I only needed 2 applications per day, morning and night. Now, after 2 years of treatment I have full use of these limbs without pain!

I have recommended this treatment to some of my closest friend, because it works! You might talk to your doctor or pharmacist about it. It is available over the counter here in Iowa. If it helps you as it is helping me, I am glad I shared this with you.

Though this is not a religious miracle, I give thanks to God for the people working in tandem to create this wonderful gel.


I don’t make anything from any company or medical facility for this review. I only hope to help other suffering people to live a more pain-free life.

May you be blessed as I am with this simple, non-invasive method of getting relief from Arth Ritis and His Ilk.
