    Dear Editor,

    I ran across your site concerning glucomine and sulphate knee cream. I took a cruise to Mexico and bought some cream there with glucomine and sulphate for 6.00. I am 65 and I have rheumatoid-osteoarthritis and am in pain

    That cream worked for me but I cant find it anywhere here. Can you help me find it please?

    Thank you,

    Dear Editor

    Shouldn't the RCT be done in such a way that the placebo also has Camphor and peppermint oil in identical concentration to the actual cream?[1] It is already known that the latter two can have a good effect on osteoarthritis, especially in the elderly.
