    Default Buckeyes- for arthritis

    So, OK this might be kinda crazy, but awhile back a friend handed me a buckeye and told me to carry it in my pocket for help with arthritis, (got a touch in a couple of fingers).

    Crazy as this sounds but it actually seems to work.
    Anyone heard of this?

    I think it's the case of the placebo pill. That's not a bad thing at all. If you think it works and it seems to stay with it. A buckeye is a lot like some folks. It's just a worthless nut.

    I have to agree. Around here they are called on for "good luck", and general aches and pains. I'm afraid it is a placebo effect. I was told to put one in my shoe to help my back.. by the end of the day, my foot hurt so bad I forgot all about my back!

    LOL, Seems that sometimes these can be the most intresting, and fun.
    I can recall some former teachers expressed this theory as well.

    Ycc, so it does work?

    Hunter63 I have heard that from country folks all my life, but you are the first that I have actually heard that said it works. Placebo effect or not, I would keep it with me for a while just to test it more.

    SR, I'm gonna keep carrying it so we will see.
    I didn't really notice anything much, just seemed that those couple of fingers didn't seem to come to mind, you don't think about them when they aren't hurting.

    So one day I was aware that they were kinda stiff and was painful to bend them.
    I looked for the buckeye and realized I had left it on my dresser.

    Put it back in my pocket, and they have been pretty good since.

    Fact or in my head, don't know???????????????????????

    It's kind of like the Q-Ray bracelet that I wear. I don't care if it's the bracelet or my head, but it works.

    I dont know about ohio buckeye, but over here we have california buckeye and theyre toxic to eat. the indians actually used them to stupify fish.

    We don't need Buckeyes to stupify people. A good many have a handle on that already.

    The guy I got the buckeye from also swears by "birch tea", as he got struck by lightning, twice, and lightning never strikes birch trees...so, go figure?

    I do know I don't hang out with him, if it's storming out.
