This is a myth. It does not help at all.
The only substances that help with this are medications prescribed by a rheumatologist.This is a serious disease and can easily cause permanent deformity and disability so it should be managed by a board certified rheumatologist who can prescribe medications that can give you the best chance of putting the disease into remission and avoiding pain/disability.
