I used a 1/4 teaspoon of Borax in 2 litres of distilled water per day. Distilled water removes the buildup of calcification in the joints and cleans out the toxins. Easy to drink because it tastes good. I am a lot more flexible with no pain.

I'm 53, I have had dicky knees for 15 years or so, they were helped very much to be not so dicky with acupuncture, (brilliant things those little needles) !! Lately, the last 6-12ish months or so, my ankles & feet have also started to get a bit creaky & painful .... i.e. it takes me 20 paces or so to move properly ... once I get going, I am good as gold. My knees .... thanks to the acupuncture, I could sorta move into & out of a crouch, squat position, prior to the acupuncture ... I could NOT do this at all. After acupuncture, different story, up & down on my knees with minimal help from solid objects or people ... VERY HAPPY with the magic needles. HOWEVER ... since the acupuncture, I have reinjured my knees, & have not had the time or $$$ to do acupucture. I am a veterinary nurse. A friend, a former vet nurse at my place of work, told me that she had given borax to her very ancient dog suffering with arthritis ... BUT on vet drugs ... she said that with 3-4 days she had a different dog. I had no reason not to believe her ... I have known her for almost 30 years. She's now a human nurse, & has been for a long time. I have done the Krill Oil, Fish Oil, Glucosamine, etc. They do work, but slowly. Also they cost money. This is my 4th day on borax with added Magnesium. YAY YAY YAY !! I did some research ... yeah ... the magnesium & borax work together with your muscles & bones ... go look it up for yourself people. I have done what this, & other sites recommend. 1 (ONE) teaspoon of borax in a litre of water. This is your "concentrate". Twice a day, take a teaspoon from the concentrate & put it in a cup of water ... DRINK ... it's not awful, I cannot taste it at all, but stick a bit of flavouring in if it bothers you. I have a lime tree in the yard, I use that, just cause I don't like seeing fruit go to waste. My knees are like WOW !!! No pain going into a crouch. There is a little pain on the way up, but it's minimal ... my ankles are almost pain free, my feet are still sore, but getting better rapidly. If I had to give my pain an overall score out of 10 prior to taking the borax & magnesium ... with 10 being bad ... I would give myself 2 scores ... 7.5 if I had been still ... i.e. caught up in gardening / computer / tv & not changing position for a few minutes. If I had been moving .. i.e. sweeping or mowing etc, the pain score would have 2-10. I've been at the p.c. for 2 ish hours ... I had to have a loo break. My pain level was almost zero when I got up. The worst injured of my knees was pain level .5 -1. My ankles... no pain at all. There is still a little pain in my feet, I'd give that a pain rating of 2-10. I am at the end of 4 days of Borax ++++ magnesium, I have learnt a lot thanks to my friend

Was using turmeric, GF diet, magnesium, and finally had to start Lyrica, then add occasional tramadol for fibromyalgia, and recent high-burn psoriatic arthritis. I was never not in pain, had reduced my work to part-time, and was fast becoming immobile. Everything helped some but then it would keep getting worse. I added boron and my pain was 80% gone in 48 hours. Skin 50% clear in 5 days. My joints feel good and the bizarre, maddening pain and frightening weakness of fibromyalgia is 90% gone after a week. I am taking the higher dose used to remove fluoride - I had huge childhood over-exposure. This is 3 years with no pain free days prior to a week ago! It is worth a try!

Have been having a 3mg pill 3 times a day with meals and find my Osteo-arthritis is kept in check. I have no need to take any pain "relievers" which is great. Have not noticed any side effects.

Reply to Diannelk5:
I presume you are asking if you can take apple cider vinegar at the same time as borax? Well the answer is yes. Unlike pharmaceutical drugs, naturally-occurring foods and remedies do not have nasty side-effects and do not normally react with each other.
PS I would not actually mix them together, as ACV is quite strong. But taking both of them every day is fine.

Can I use the apple cider vinegar as well?

I am taking 3mg boron supplement 2x day and it started improving the pain and stiffness that I felt almost immediately after the first day. I had been taking other various supplements like turmeric, gluc/chrond/msm, yucca, fish oil, vitamin c, calcium, magnesium, white willow bark, etc. These helped some, but it wasn't until I added the boron that the pain and stiffness decreased significantly.

For several years I had a kind of numbness above my knee. Over time it extended further down in the rest of my leg, eventually the whole leg from my waist down to my foot. It became painful to use, even walking. My MRI's show pinched nerves in my back and some torn tissue in my knee. My doctor prescribed a cortisone injection to alleviate the pain in my knee, and anti-inflammatory meds. I really didn't want to go this way, especially having read how ineffective cortisone can be, making things worse in the long term. After reading about boron here, I decided to give it a go. There's no way it would be harmful like the prescriptions my doctor gave me. After starting to use borax a month ago, the pain is hardly there at all. I'm also getting physio for my back, and eating cartilage and bone stock. There is now more feeling, control, and a range of smoothness in my leg. I feel confident that in a couple more months it will be right back to normal.

3mg of boron a day have totally taken away the pain I used to have in my hands!

For years I'd been suffering from painful bones in my feet and arthritis starting in my fingers. It was hard to walk without limping. A month ago I started taking Borax, and the result has been nothing short of miraculous. The pain has almost completely gone, and all my joints are so much more flexible.
