Keeping my joints healthy
4:14 pm edt
Greetings, and it's been a while since my past posting, but I wanted to share a combination of natural supplements I have
been using for almost 2 years now that is working wonders in keeping my joints supple so I don't feel like a squeaky door.
If this is your first visit, at the bottom and reading up, you'll learn about my C5-6 herniated disc and the surgery
I had. My joints are the weak spot in my overall health. Not sitting at a computer all day I believe has helped
immensely. In my business designing jewelry I make sure I am moving around and not stagnating in ine position all day. (Visit
About 2 years ago I started taking Zyflamend, a natural supplement of which the biggest
ingredient is ginger. This helped to bring down the stiffness caused by inflammation in my joints. However, it
wasn't quite enough. In a discussion with our local whole foods store, I decided to try cod liver oil as I was told
that this will lubricate the joints, so to speak, and with the Zyflamend will be the best combination. About 30 days
later I noticed significant decrease in the remaining stiffness, to the point that it was almost like I was completely back
has the best prices I have found, especially when you sign-up for the regular shipment. The cod liver oil I get
from our local grocery store. It has a lemony flavor which I don't like so I suck a chocolate chip and that makes the
experience more palatable.
I would rather take a different product than cod liver oil since we are fast running
out of fish, but I believe this brand is a combination of different fish. The important thing is to take a quality brand
that is not tainted with pollutants in the water.
I have also gone on a diet recently. The
weight was slowly increasing and I have a very small bone structure. Those extra 20 lbs were well distributed, but I
was starting to feel it. With the loss of weight I feel much better, lighter and I can tell my joints really appreciate
Good luck. And let me know what you take. All the best, Fiona
