I hought I would add my two cents worth to the excellent information you have already gotten. Carrot juice is a powerful anti-infammatory juice. Some people have even reported improvement in auto-immune disorders when drinking carrot juice. Almost any bright colored fruit, veggie or juice is full of antioxidants that will help control inflammation. Since your mother is also dealing with broken bones, I would suggest she also try a good greendrink that is full of B vitamins and calcium that is readily absorbed by the body. I like Green Max from http://www.swansonvitamins.com
, but there are many different brands, blends and price ranges. A good green drink can be a powerful aide in healing the body. Please keep us posted on her progress.
