    very interesting on a number of levels and may have benefits for many people. Also just need to point out that it was osteoarthritis in patients that was being looked at not rheumatoid.

    Hi I remember going to an RBF dinner years ago –the star was a young girl who recovered from JRA using minocycline —I am well aware of the potential for problems using mino on a young child –such as teeth etc –it may be worthwhile discussing it with your doctor since progress is not very good —

    best to do this fresh with a mortar and pestle (first choice) or coffee grinder, also making sure that your seeds are raw, certified organic, and vetted to have not undergone gamma irradiation…

    From my experience, black sesame seed has superior joint and anti-inflammatory properties to yellow sesame seed.
    A few times that I ate just about 1 tsp., swollen little joints (my main joint problem) would go back to normal within 20-30 minutes.

    I wonder if your little one would like a dessert of home-made halva (sesame seed + honey)?

    I had read about sesame oil rubbed into joints for pain relief. I think it takes time to see the results. I did not notice any immediate difference. But I used yellow sesame oil. People in India use primarily cold pressed black sesame seed oil, not the yellow one, for massaging into the skin and for rubbing for osteo related joint pain.

    Sesame seed in Ayurveda:

    Hi Krys–
    If your Halvah is anything like genuine New York Halvah which is still available in a few shops in lower Manhattan -it must be great —Years ago it was all over New York now just available in a few shops –I am talking real Halvah not the packaged junk –I remember it was sold from very large bricks and the customer would specify how big a chunk to cut –it was very oily which was the sesame oil –made with honey- sesame paste -sesame oil — pistachios and more —I really do miss that Halvah –the packaged type we see now -I wouldnt feed to my goldfish !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That’s a treat I remember eating as a kid and adult until a few years ago. Thank you, Richie, for bringing my attention to the changes in quality of available Halvah. I stopped buying it and stopped missing it without realizing why.

    I’ve never made Halvah myself, but it should be fairly easy. I was suggesting to Zeljana to do a homemade one (or something reminiscent of Halvah) if she means to introduce the seeds and oil (outside of using oil for massage) to her daughter because I believe the homemade one will retain valuable qualities. I have no idea what temperatures are used in ready made Halvah, but chances are they are high enough to decrease the medicinal properties of the oil and seeds.
    1 tsp now and then as a treat, maybe chilled and wrapped in a fancy wrapper, could bring the little girl joy and be good for her at the same time?

    Hi Zeljana,
    You are such a fabulous mom! You will get your daughter well!
    Abx will do their job soon. And as for additional help, it’s probably, to a large extent, a trial and error type of thing. You are doing so much already. 🙂

    I wonder if you had researched the diet, like relation between gluten and inflammation, and if you are familiar with GAPS diet?
    There may be no need to go into such lengths, but you may get some ideas how to incorporate certain good for her foods to make the meals more easy to digest and to assimilate. You said that she refuses to eat kefir. Maybe adding some kefir or a tsp/TBSP of kefir/sauerkraut juice to lukewarm soup would make it appetizing to her?

    Yellowish teeth….She is too little to want to do oil-pulling, but maybe brushing her teeth with pure coconut oil instead of/in addition to toothpaste, and then eventually trying to add a tiny amount of something else (1/2 drop of H2O2 or a very tiny amount of baking soda?) would be some help?
    I cannot find the article I saw recently with a good photo of pure coconut oil on a toothbrush. The one below’s recipe is more for grown-ups. I’m supplying the link as an idea only.

    Wishing your daughter full and speedy recovery,

    A Friend

    Yes you’re right but I would try to give this to my daughter. I belive it can not hurt. 🙂

    Hello Zeljana, Lynnie, and others of you who have added to this thread. Thanks for sharing this information. The knee arthritis mentioned in the posted topic, along with heart conditions and statin drugs mentioned in some of the associated tests discussed in the links, has important information that may be especially helpful to my own family members… especially the link information about negation of benefits of fish oil when statins are taken.

    seeds may be good for RA too:

    Not a high success rate, 30-42%, but also only administered for 1 month.


    nigella sativa is black seed which apparently is NOT related to sesame seed, but is sometimes called black sesame and a host of other names…
