4. Inflammation. Reducing your overall inflammatory levels can have a very positive effect on arthritis. This includes avoiding egg yolks, chicken, turkey and many farm-raised fish, as these are loaded with inflammatory messengers according to David Chilton in his excellent book Inflammation Nation:. He has an entire program that has helped him in his practice with various autoimmune diseases.
5. Fish Oil. Fish oil did very well in numerous studies in the 80's with respect to inflammation and arthritis. Early studies found fish oil to be anti-inflammatory  and to reduce the amount of NSAIDs needed by patients for example.  Still other studies showed that fish oil reduced morning stiffness and other debilitating aspects of arthritis.  I would also suggest reading my link on Fish Oil and Testosterone as well.
6. Boron. Boron is a huge inflammation fighter and one small study showed that it decreased both TNF-alpha and C-Reactive Protein. It also lowered estradiol and increased testosterone. See my link on Boron and Testosterone for more information.
7. Cortisol Microdose Therapy. This novel new approach was recently covered by the Life Extension Foundation.  Of course, cortisol is an old line treatment option for certain arthritis and joint issues, but is considered too dangerous to use consistently. Cortisol microdose therapy reportedly produces remarkable results for some in spite of using minute doses of cortisol that supposedly cannot cause long term issues. I mention it simply as a strategy to research and discuss with your doctor. NOTE: It does have the reputation for being pricey but then most moderate to severe arthritis sufferers spend a lot on medications and therapies that this may potentially replace. Also, some fibromyalgia sufferers report relief. However the research does not yet show a clear benefit.
8. Bromelain. Bromelain, a component of pineapple used to tenderize meat, has for centuries been used to relieve symptoms of pain. It has multiple studies showing it's benefit in this regard. 
9. White Willow Bark. One study showed this ancient herbal remedy was quite effective on osteoarthritis. 
NEWS FLASH: Scientists have recently isolated a pain killer that is as powerful as morphine with no apparent side effects.  Severe arthritis sufferers may want to watch the development of this drug/supplement (conolidine).
