Knee pain is a common issue which many people are suffering from. Here we explain different types of knee pains and their cures.
This issue can happen due to 4 reasons:

A cup of fresh milk+ 2 table spoon of Senjed (Farsi name) + 2 table spoon of honey.
? Excess Balqam:
This type is very common among the women and those who have excess balqam.
