We no longer use pain relief drugs of any kind to manage pain.
We're battling arthritis and joint discomfort successfully while building our health through Shaklee natural products. In 1991, I suffered a painful lateral neck whiplash from an auto accident. That's when I discovered I can't handle pain relief drugs, whether over the counter or prescription. Instead of relieving neck pain, they caused other problems, like extreme stomach pain, dizziness, sleeplessness and generally made my life miserable. Nine years later, I was diagnosed with neck arthritis.
To stop pain, I tried various natural pain relief treatment methods, including chiropractic, acupuncture, acupressure, magnetic therapy, aromatherapy, copper bracelets, massage therapy, a chiropractic cot, and more, with no long-term success.
My husband, Mike, has participated in athletics all of his life. He injured both knees, developed osteoarthritis in both, and underwent arthroscopic meniscus surgery on his left knee in 1999 from playing tennis. At that time, his doctor recommended knee replacement for the not-too-distant future. Even four years after the meniscus surgery, I have seen his knees so swollen he could barely get his jeans on. His knees were so stiff he had to lift his left leg into the car with his hands to get into the car to drive.
But after he started on Shaklee's newpain product in 2003, coupled with Alfalfa Complex and Omega Guard (fish oil) his relief from the pain, swelling and stiffness was so profound that he continued to play tennis up to four times a week for twelve more yearsuntil he re-injured his left menisicus in 2015. He underwent a total left knee replacement, followed by a total right knee replacement three weeks later in 2016. His surgeon said that Mike had two of the worst osteoarthritis knees he had ever replaced.
He resumed tennis in June, 2016, three to four times a week. He has continued on the three pain products, avoiding all prescription or over the counter pain drugs. He says his knees feel brand new playing tennis, with no pain or discomfort during or following all activity. He does now have severe osteoarthritis in his right shoulder, diagnosed by X-ray, but is able to function relatively pain-free.
