Having problems with aching joints – particularly hips and knees?
Unless you’re very lucky or not carrying any excess weight, all of us experience this discomfort at some stage in our lives – particularly as we get older.
We always refer to it as Arthritis and it can eventually cost us a visit to an orthopedic surgeon for – at the least – arthroscopic surgery or a knee or hip replacement.
In Chinese Traditional Medicine this condition is often referred to as Bi Syndrome and it could be combined with Kidney Yang Deficiency. Having said this I would recommend that you consult a qualified Chinese Herbal Medicine practitioner for an accurate opinion.
Apart from anything else, all this is expensive, but the pain and discomfort leading up to this is no joke. At some stage you will probably be given anti-inflammatory drugs to ease the pain but if you don’t do anything about it you will eventually end up “under the knife”
I personally am terrified of anesthetics and its not a thing I would look forward to!
Although the anti-inflammatories are getting safer they still present a threat to the mucous membranes of your stomach in particular.
Why not give a Nature’s Bounty Flex-A-Min Triple Strength for arthritis a try? The link above is to a product I fully endorse – and its a dosage of only two a day! Its a long term program but if you stick to it you might just be pleasantly surprised!
If you have serious joint pain already it might help with pain relief as it contains MSM – a natural pain reliever.
That doesn’t mean that you should ignore your diet and not watch your weight, because it’s those very joints which have to carry us!
If you do decide to try Glucosamine please make sure it is the Sulphate form, and that it is formulated in an easily absorbable formulation. Of course it goes without saying that you should make sure that it is manufactured by a respected manufacturer – with a pedigree.
If you buy the cheapest you get what you pay for. It is not a good idea if you are allergic to shellfish as the product does contain traces of shellfish.
I cannot stress enough how important it is to take this supplement long term! Were talking months and years here!
There are a few manufacturers who produce premium Glucosamine supplements – the best being a combination of Glucosamine and Chondroitin.
