Joint pain can really be bothersome in the winter months, especially for the elderly. Experts recommend an intake of fresh vegetables and fruits such as carrots, cucumbers, and radishes; even a glass of fruit juice can be beneficial. Garlic can be helpful as well as taking ginger extract or lemon with one teaspoon of honey morning and night. Also, having a massage with lavender oil will help relieve pain in your joints.
