A book of remedies would suggest this remedy for arthritis: Get some poke root and chop it into 1 inch pieces or so. Enough to half fill a quart jar. Then completely fill the quart jar with some good quality whiskey. Take 1 tablespoon of the liquid before each meal (three times a day) until all the liquid is gone.
Stay tuned for more.
