Sesame Seeds

My grandma was diagnosed a couple of years ago with knee arthritis which caused a lot of pain to her. Painkillers helped her to stretch her legs but when she wanted to walk with the help of crutches the pain was more intense.When we went back to the clinic, the doctor said the X-ray showed arthritis of the knee and gave Tylenol and Glucosamine medications. He said that the last option apart from painkillers would be a knee replacement surgery.

After taking the medications for a couple of months, my grandma felt a little better but the results were very slow. I wanted to help her out and I went online on several discussion forums to know if people suffering from knee arthritis found any help other than medications. I found out that at least 4 tablespoons of raw, organic sesame seeds every day worked better than the drugs that they were administered to.

All these compounds boost bone health. They create new bone matter, strengthen and repair injured and weakened bones due to several conditions like knee arthritis.

I asked my grandma to have 4 tablespoons of sesame seeds every day morning before breakfast. I reserved the remaining to be added to her salads and afternoon tea time snacks. I garnished her cookies with organic sesame seeds. In the next six months, she felt better. The intensity of her knee pain was reduced and these sesame seeds worked alongside the prescribed medications and fastened the recovery process.
