New Ways to Stop Joint Pain by Kay Wilson

Joint pain comes to most people.  Over 20 million suffer with osteoarthritis & 10 million have osteoporosis with approximately 34 million have osteopenia, low bone density, but not severe enough to be classified as osteoporosis.  Progression will lead to osteoporosis that presents symptoms of chronic lower back pain, height loss and even physical deformity.


Osteoporosis
, a long term loss of bone tissue that causes thinning brittle bones that become more susceptible to broken legs and hip fractures. Some common prescription drugs can worsen or even cause osteoporosis in otherwise healthy people.  Prednisone is often used for asthma and immune problems and used long term can cause or affect osteoporosis. Prevacid and Nexium that is advertised daily on commercials can contribute to hip fracture. Normal bones shed and replace to keep strength & fracture resistance but is silent until a fracture occurs.  Over half a million people are hospitalized and  180,000 a year are placed in nursing homes. 

Osteoarthritis, one of more than 150 types of arthritis is associated with aging and joint pain. Public opinion was that exercise, running, playing sports or construction work caused osteoarthritis but research has shown that exercise is not the “bad guy” and your body will benefit by activity.  Osteoarthritis causes bones to grate, joints to swell and forms bone spurs and any movement can be extremely painful.  When we have pain , we move less, become more sedentary and open our body’s defenses to weight gain & depression.  over 70% of people over 70 show some level of arthritis. 

My personal testimonial with arthritis, began with lower chronic back pain worsening to stiff joints and so bad that it would take 10 minutes to get out of bed in the morning & to the bathroom.  After several years of  consulting chiropractors, medical doctors and osteopaths, Dr. Michael Bischoff recommended I try over the counter vitamins.  I tried Centrum but felt no difference.  An Herbalife Distributor recommended Cellular Nutrition and I became a wholesale customer, discovered in a training 3 products existed that could help my arthritis.  I started a daily regimen of Herbalifeline, Aloe Vera Drink and Joint Support.  It took about 8 weeks to alleviate the pain in my back and joints, not a cure but I have been in total remission and pain free for over 18 years.  By the way, I am 74 years old, enjoy a very active, fun-filled life without prescription meds.

Herbalife products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. However, when the body is getting complete nutrition at the cellular level amazing results can occur!
