Olive Oil for Joint Pain

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.

If you are already taking medication please consult with your doctor.
