Exercise certainly helps, but it is hard to do when in a lot of pain and muscle stiffness. I accidently found that taking an L-lysine capsule after eating several handfuls of dry roasted peanuts greatly reduces muscle stiffness and stops the pain. I had taken the L-lysine because I thought some light headedness I was experiencing might be due to an inner ear problem caused by herpes virus. And I had stopped eating sugary foods and was snacking on peanuts. After several days I was amazed to discover my arthritic pain had stopped and I had become so flexible I could put on my socks without any problem. A net search revealed that you should not eat peanuts when taking L-lysine for herpes because there is an enzyme in peanuts that combines with the L-lysine enzyme to make the lubricant for your joints! That was years ago, and it still works for me today. It doesn't take much either, as I only use up one bottle of 40 capsules of L-lysine in an average year.

@Jim, peanuts contain a lot of arginine which I understand is necessary for the herpes virus to thrive, that is why I understand you should avoid peanuts or other arginine-rich foods in case you have risk of herpes outbreak.

I have also heard apple cider vinegar and honey may be home remedies for arthritis inflammation.
