I am in my early 40s, living in America since last 20 years, was born in India. I have knee pain, right anckle pain, neck stiffness, week wrists, lower back pain, ... basically pain everywhere. My mom, who lives in New Delhi, India have only knee pain. I read on internet about Borax, but was hesitant of the safety of it because I didn't knew what borax is. One day, I told mom that borax might help in joint pain but I am not sure. Mom told me that borax is suhaga in Hindi. Of course, I knew suhaga. We, all North Indians I am not sure about south India, give borax suhaga to infants from birth till almost one year. Mom told me that she gave borax to all 4 of us me and my siblings. She also told me that my brother's kids age 9 and 4 also got it. This took my fear away. And I went to Walmart right away to get 20 mule team borax. Also, my mom and my brother in India, started it. It's been 4 days today. I can see a difference, but nothing remarkable. Also, since it s pretty hot this week, that could be the reason for me feeling better. So too soon for me to say if it helps with joint pain. Small doses of borax can't harm since traditionally we give it to infants. Hope this will help.

I had arthritis of my right hand knuckle joints. There was pain just from shaking hands. I had no grip strength and it hurt to squeeze anything. I mix the 1 tsp of 20 Mule Team borax to 1 quart of water. I took 5 tsp per day for 3 days. I noticed small changes at 1st, the pain was different, but by the 4th day the pain was almost gone and I could grip with strength again. It was like a miracle for me.

I started taking 2 teaspoons of the base mix (1 teaspoon of borax dissolved in 1 litre of water) per day and within hours of the first dose my muscle inflammation started to subside. I have had terrible muscle inflammation around my neck and shoulders especially for years. I no longer suffer from it. It also improved my thinking ability - no more brain fog, my ability to cope with stress and stamina have improved. I used to have a very painful bunion on my big toe and a heel spur but these have both improved and are no longer inflamed. Awesome stuff.

I've been taking borax for osteopenia and osteoarthritis for 3 months. I've also been taking advil from the doctor for pain, and supplements magnesium citrate and selenium with zinc. Also going to a Pilates class. My pain prior to taking borax was 8 out of 10 with a feeling of fused lower back and hip with groin pain and I was only able to walk 1/2 hour before groin and hip pain. After resting I managed to get home. Now after 3 months of Borax the fusion feels 100% better my hip pain has gone and I can walk again without having to return home 1/2 hour later. My hip still isn't normal but I suppose that's wear and tear. Libido has picked up and mind fogginess has gone and my memory is much improved. I'll recommend Borax to everyone with caution, research and test before taking any supplements. Nothing to be scared of, either it works for you or it doesn't.

Having developed painful joints in the fingers of my right hand after excessive use think knitting, playing ukulele, keyboarding I stopped the knitting and seriously reduced the others. Then I heard about Borax and mixed 1 teaspoon of borax in a ml 750 bottle of water did not have a 1 ltr bottle and started taking 2 teaspoons of that mixture per day. It was only 3 days later that I realised that my fingers were no longer hurting and I was able to start knitting again. I did notice though that the effect was lost when I stopped for a week so now back on. Have bought a 1 ltr bottle to do it properly.

I had read a lot about using Boron which was first discovered some 30 years ago as a remedy for arthritis by Rex Newnham a Perth microbiologist. Anyhow all my research persuaded me to try the remedy as I have suffered with knee and shoulder problems for years. Also my wife has had chronic back arthritis and more recent a shoulder pain problem. We are both in our late 60's. So several days ago we started taking daily a teaspoon of the diluted Borax solution and a teaspoon of magnesium solution and have had a vast improvement with all our ailments. So much so my wife has cancelled a doctors appointment for her previous shoulder pain. My wife has been very sceptical of my home remedies but this latest one of mine has impressed her no end.

I had a sore shoulder and knees. My knees were so bad a long drive was impossible without stopping to rest, I am late 50s. I mixed 2 teaspoons of borax with 1.5 litres of water, within three weeks my shoulder pain has nearly gone and I am exercising again. Also I completed an 830 km drive and without the usual knee pain, overall health improving and this miracle can only be described as amazing. It is amazing that borax is banned in Europe, UK etc? Maybe the great health conspiracy is alive and well.

I've been researching borax and I'm keen to use it. I've had really sore knees for years, and borax sounds really promising. I'm not worried about any dangers regarding borax itself but am concerned that the packaging of it in China may mean that it may not be hygienically treated. Can anyone offer any help in that regard?

Amazing. I'm 51 and for 25+ years, I had severe psoratic- and osteo-arthritis and various related/resulting conditions like hay fever, depression, anxiety, addiction, eczema, tinnitus ... Three and a half months ago, I started daily with 4 teaspoons of borax solution (one teaspoon of borax mixed with a liter of water) and 500 mg of magnesium (for the first ten days I took 1000 mg of magnesium). (Since I thought I also might have Pyroluria, I included zinc, B6, D3 and an Omega 6 supplement.) All my conditions are at least 90% better. The herx'ing was tiring at times, especially in the third month when it was most severe. A couple weeks ago, I reduced the borax to two teaspoons of the solution daily. Occasionally I still experience some minor healing reactions, but they are declining.
