So whenever my mom does work with her hands her arthritis (I'm assuming it's arthritis) acts up and she can't even close her hand all the way. She asks me to bring her advil to "bring down the swelling" but I really hate doing this because I know it's just a temporary fix (and probably bad on her kidneys or liver). So, the question is, would PB cure the arthritis? It's very difficult for me to change my mom's eating habits, though they have improved (she still can't get rid of the raisinettes and milano cookies). Is there a specific food family I can try to eliminate without a full change to PB (nightshades, grains, etc)? Any info is much appreciated, as I hate to see her in pain.
