Being pregnant at ages 38 and 42, I don’ think that I did my body many favours dishing out calcium to grow the skeletal structures of 2 small humans. For a total of 3 years the mineral generosity was perpetuated through breastfeeding. I don’t know if there’s a connection but I have early osteoporosis and had 3 separate joint issues.
For a few years I had temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome, which in layman’s terms is a very sore, frozen, clicky jaw. I could not open my mouth more than about 3cm. Cliff lamented that … actually I won’t go there. A maxillio facial specialist had a bite plate made for me as I clenched my teeth in my sleep. (At that point in my life, I think I can lay that one squarely on my MIL not the little humans). The bite plate helped considerably but I ground it to pieces in under a year.
My right hip hurt constantly since my pregnancy with Acacia. I did nothing to treat that and lived with the pain.
I suddenly had terrible pain in my index finger. I could not bend it and it hurt like hell. Doctors are my last resort but I went to one because I thought that an insect was stuck in my ear (another story). While at the doc, I asked about my finger and was told that I had (have?) osteoarthritis. He recommended OsteoEze Gold which a friend had previously recommended for my other aches.
The time had come to fork out the money (it’s not cheap) and try OsteoEze Gold. For the first 2 weeks I took 3 tabs a day, thereafter I cut down to 1 a day. I was gobsmacked. Within 2 weeks the finger and hip pain were gone. Within a month my jaw was dramatically better. The results were extreme. After a few months, I slacked off a bit, when I left it too long the pain began to return. I need to be good and keep at it. It may be expensive but it is so worth taking.
Cliff also experienced great results. He will soon write a post for me about his horrible struggle with numb fingers from a bulging disc in his neck. Instead of surgery he took a 4 pronged approach. 1) Chiropractor 2) exercises 3) OsteoEze 4) hot and cold packs. His recovery has been amazing.
