In this post, I would like to tell you how I’ve developed and started treating a very painful condition which I call a painful knee for simplicity. I believe I have tendonitis and probably a joint misalignment as a result.
In March this year, I caught the dreaded virus. It took me over 2 months to recover, at least to a point when I started thinking that I wasn’t as fit as I was before I got ill. So I decided to get back into cycling.
I was missing my bicycle and really enjoyed my first trip. I felt a bit of a strain on my knees but I decided to start regardless.
The second trip in the same week also felt strenuous on the knees. I thought that the more I practised the easier it would get and my knee joints would strengthen.
So yesterday I took my third trip in just one week. I dismounted the bike every time it got too steep to go uphill.
However, my joints were becoming quite painful at this point. I should have listened to my body and not taken that third journey in a week. I didn’t, and am now paying for it.
Last night my knees became so strained that they started creaking. I found it difficult to go up and down the stairs without feeling the pain. Getting up and sitting down also became quite hard. So last night before going to bed I applied magnesium oil on my knees and legs. I covered my whole leg for a stronger effect. It helped me sleep better too.
Today, I decided to do some research into natural remedies to help me with my knees. It’s not the first time I am having knee problems, so I really want to do more than just wait for the pain to go.
I have decided to take the following steps to treat my painful knee:
- Start walking short distances twice a day after my knee pain subsided.
- Resume the yoga routine – 15 minutes every day to start with.
- Apply magnesium oil on my knees twice a day.
- Research natural ways to help restore my knee joints (I have problems with the left knee as well).
I have started looking into various natural supplements by reading research articles and blog posts on natural health websites. These are the remedies I’ve decided to try:
- MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) – a sulphur-containing supplement found in plants. It is used for many issues but in my case, I intend to use it to reduce pain and inflammation in my knees. I am also hoping to start regenerating my damaged joints.
- Glucosamine sulphate – a chemical naturally occurring in the human body used to produce a variety of other chemicals involved in building cartilage, tendons and ligaments, as well as the synovial fluid around the joints.
- Niacinamide – I’ve just read some very interesting information about this supplement. It’s a precursor to niacin (vitamin B3) which has shown excellent results in treating knee pain. “In 1949, William Kaufman M.D. Ph.D. wrote a small book on his findings of using niacinamide as a solution to knee issues…Kaufman gave different dosages based on levels of pain. Since Kaufman’s work, Abram Hoffer established that 3 grams a day is fine for most anybody, so if one wants to try niacinamide, Hoffer would likely suggest a gram at every meal for 3 grams a day. ” Unlike niacin, niacinamide doesn’t cause flushes.
- Calcium, magnesium + Vitamin D3 – all of these nutrients are crucial in maintaining joint and bone health.
- Cod liver oil – a well-known and popular supplement used to maintain healthy joints.
- Hydrolysed collagen – “A few studies have… shown that collagen supplements help with arthritis pain and sports-related joint pain.” Source
- Turmeric – it has long been used in Asia not only to cook curries but also to treat painful joints. Turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and can be used both internally – in food and teas – and externally.
- Magnesium oil – magnesium chloride solution which can be applied on a painful knee to soothe pain and reduce inflammation. This is very powerful and safe to use by most people.
I recommend getting these supplements from Amazon for a number of reasons. I use Amazon because it offers next-day delivery and is quite strict about what can and cannot be sold on its platform, so you are much less likely to get poor quality products.
As far as my treatment goes, I’ll to start taking MSM, collagen and Glucosamine Sulphate. I will also keep applying magnesium oil on the skin daily. I’ll see what else to add to my daily cocktail. Check back in a month or so for an update on how it goes and whether my chosen remedies make a difference. 🙂
P.S. You may want to check out this bioenergetic imprinting treatment for knee and joint pain. It is based on NASA light technology and claims to have scientific research behind it, with very interesting results.

Take a look at my books where I describe how minerals – salts, muds and clays – help us heal. They are some of the best remedies for our joints. The resorts where people go to get help with arthritis are the most solid proof that they work.
