Moist Heat for the Bones

The best relief I have found for aching joints and bones is moist heat.
It seeps into the muscles, right down to the bones, providing comfort and warmth to those sore joints.
And the best thing that offers this relief is a simple homemade bag that gets heated up in the microwave.
I make a bag out of fleece - any size you want.
Fill it about 3/4 of the way with white rice and completely stitch the whole thing closed to keep the rice in.
Heat it up in the microwave and you have an instant heat pack.
It will conform to any shape comfortably.
And the most amazing thing about this rice bag - no matter how many times it gets warmed up, it never looses it moistness.
I'm not sure how it does that, but it works everytime.

It's inexpensive and it works - what more can one ask for!
