I read years ago that virgin olive oil helps with joint pain. I even told other people to use it but I have never done it . Many people who have been through Chic V /Chikungunya complain of arthritic pain months even years later. I suggested and used turmeric myself , but I just started using Virgin Olive Oil to treat my joint pain . I started with two teaspoons in the morning and I am pleased . After my bout with Chic V I suffered through flares of joint pain in my fingers , knees and my ankles. especially in the mornings. Now after 8 days ,barely a twinge, after day one I felt improvements. I am too young for arthritis and inflammation in the body is problematic in the long run.
