It’s time for an update from Suzanne, a dear friend, colleague and client who notices significant improvements in the way her body feels, especially in her hands, when she’s taking her high quality, pharmaceutical-grade, and science-backed nutritionals.
Of course it’s not possible to make claims about how anything, including nutritionals will affect anyone, although it’s extraordinary what’s possible with our health when we give our cells what they need to do the job. And in fact you are the expert of your own body and know its experience.
Here’s Suzanne’s experience in her own words –
“When I first started taking this specific nutritional, back in 2010, I used to have winter eczema where I got splits in my fingertips that would not heal, would bleed and were very painful. With appropriate guidance, I gradually increased my daily nutritional dose, and when I was taking three times my regular dose I noticed that my fingertips healed within 3 days. In 2019, I was looking at the budget and decided I didn’t need that big dose and cut back to a third of what I had been taking.”
That’s when she said that even though nothing else had changed, her body started acting like a creaking wheel. So when she practiced her Tai Chi, every joint would be creaking and clicking. Her knee joints ached; her hands were painful, stiff, and even slightly swollen, and she noticed knobby knuckles.
She double checked with a practitioner she’d seen for a different reason, who agreed with what I’d recommended and said a higher dose was most likely helping.
So, in Jan 2020, Suzanne resumed her previous higher dose and “within a month, my hands weren’t stiff and painful, and by 6 weeks, the clicking all over had disappeared. My hands don’t look swollen at all now, and they look and feel completely normal again.”
Thank you so much for sharing your experience Suzanne, as it can be helpful to hear of options that may help us and those people we care about. In fact, if you know anyone who might be experiencing challenges with arthritis and painful joints, please do share Suzanne’s story, as it may inspire them to seek out a solution. 1

1 It’s refreshing to see the increase in positive results from research being done. For example “There is evidence that certain foods and nutrients can improve the symptoms of osteoarthritis. They do this by fighting inflammation, providing nutrition, and boosting bone, muscle, and immune system function.” And, as Suzanne shared, we often have a sense about what makes us feel better.
