Compensating for my back problems sometimes other body parts are at risk for over use. I often sit a version of Indian style this is a beneficial pose in yoga not great when its repeated throughout the day or I am over stretching my ankle finding comfortable sitting potions. I am often on my feet during the day and I am sure my lower back makes everything below work overtime.
My knees- pain was mild until it wasn't I feel for everyone with bad knees and who struggles with this type of pain. Kratom has kept me functioning but when it wears off not fun.
I diagnosed myself with tendonitis of Knees(pain also in the shins and ankle) I am practicing exercise moderation - Rest. Ice. Heat. Elevation. For the most part the pain level is down. I could be suffering for up to 6 weeks am I starting week 2.

Suggestions from the crowd. I know there are supplement that help healing. I feel I am already getting enough magnesium, and MSM. I do not know would be the best to add for knee/tendon pain/healing.

been following this- draxe.com/health/bones-joints/tendonitis/

and too many to chose from this

Sending sympathy hugs. I get Youngevity supps through Paul. He might have an idea for one thing to try at first? <3

Edit: At that link they mention using "capsules" but every major brand uses enteric coating, and for good reason. Your tummy wouldn't like it if they weren't coated. ;)

Just have to watch out for taking too much, as you don't feel the full effect of daily dosing for a few days. Once a day can be plenty, or every other day/as needed, though for some uses people could be advised to take much larger doses, several times a day.

Just get it in the blister packs, and buy the cheapest name brand. Afaik they all use the same formula that was developed in Italy. Start with the lowest dosage one that's generally available. Though there might still be one around that is even half of that, but relatively few people use that low a dose.

This might be the best bang for the buck, especially as I'm seeing a coupon on its page. smile.amazon.com/SAM-200mg-Daily-Supplem...omotes/dp/B079Q65Y4C

Nan70:

I suffered severe flareups of back spasms and sciatica for 40 years. I have tried many things: Chiropractic, hydrocodone, yoga and stretches (which I still do every morning), and many systems of supplements.

I met Dr. Wallach, who created Youngevity, in Jan. 2013, and he told me what he recommended for all these bone & joint problems. He invited me to join him for breakfast after one of his lectures and imprssed me with his knowledge about physiology and his concern for suffering.

Basically, what he recommends is some form of the 90 essential nutrients as a basis of rebuilding your bones, cartilage, and tendons. Youngevity has a new formula called the "Core90", then add a big bottle of Gluco-Gel capsules (take 5 caps with each meal to rebuild cartilage, tendons, and bone matrix) and you might add a bottle of selenium. Do this for 3 months and you should feel improvements, if your digestion is letting you assimilate the nutrients.

These, together, give your body the raw materials to strengthen bone, re-surface the cartilage in the joints, the works. Taking single-ingredient items like SAM-E can't do the whole job; they merely stop or reduce the inflammtion.

You will need to get gluten out of your life because it destroys the gut's ability to absorb the nutrients, which are needed to rebuild -- not just your knees -- but all parts of your body.

It worked for me -- no more of the crippling back spasms or sciatic pain. It's about $160 a month for the supplements. I can show you ways to economize and still get the nutrients that are needed.

If you're interested, I can walk you through the steps.

Your post was a helpful reminder that I had zero complaints regarding my knees when I was taking Glocosamine Sulfate.

My last bottle was purchased at a discount from a local Vitamin supplier. I'm lucky enough to live near where (seemingly) most Vitamins are manufactured. It's funny but they're all within a mile or two of each other, right near the local airport and major roads, and two of them are right next door to each other. I don't count the third, Piping Rock, though I often shop there, as its owned by the father and son part owners of one of the major companies that's next door. Their clearance racks can send you into a frenzy, lol.

Yadda, yadda, yadda, but I just checked, and funny enough it's cheaper for me to buy Puritans Pride version from Amazon, rather than drive to Piping Rock. I think Puritans Pride has an outlet as well, and maybe one day I'll check it out, but not today. They have frequent online sales.

They're huge, and their warehouses dominate the end of the street they're on. Anyway, I just checked the prices, and the best deal I can find is Puritans Pride Glucosamine Sulfate 1000 mg Capsules, 240 Count.

Lol, Amazon isn't paying me to link to them, nor is anyone, so if buying Glucosamine sulfate by itself, this would be the price to beat.

Though I have Subscribe and Save, so I get 15% off, plus free shipping. That might negate some of its advantage to others.

Paul-You mentioned way back that your Naturopathic Physician recommend eating eggs daily. I didn't realize your doctor was Dr. Wallach.(that is awesome) But the number of eggs was something like 6. A bit overwhelmed I researched why eggs, and realized I could do at least 2 eggs daily sometimes 4. I was getting random shocks of sciatic pain multiple times a day, now almost never. Just thought I should mention. Thank you for sharing this information it made a major change for me.

I am taking two digestion management supplements from Youngevity for blood sugar support and metabolism.
I am going to look over the two products you mentioned at the web site.

Glucosamine sulfate seems to be the right supplement to add to my dietary routine. Thank you Paul and Babel!

Selenium is another one I had been considering because my thyroid levels were off at my last doctors appointment,
I am supposed to retest but I already know that I am not willing to see an endocrinologist or consider thyroid medications. I feel the test is not entirely accurate I have been using an iodine wash to clear up and improve old scarring, I know this can make the blood test off. But getting too far off subject.

I going to look over the products now and see what seems like the best way to go.


My husband is doing the bone broth thing. Have to see how that goes for him he is the guinea pig for that.

Edit- Laurie thank you for the summoning!!

The Gluco-Gel from Youngevity has both glucosamine and beef gelatine and other co-factors that help them work. The best therapy, imho, is one that not only helps lower pain, but helps our body rebuild the joint or painful degenerative disc (that is causing the sciatic pain). Our body is quite capable of repairing itself if it is given the necessary raw materials.

About the low thyroid levels, Nana70 -- try a good iodine supplement! Thyroid hormones are constructed from iodine as a key ingredient. Maybe you're not getting enough?

Good to hear the eggs are working for you, too!

hey nan,

im sorry you are having joint issue as well. with my OA I know it all too well, sucks. being on our feet all day doesn't help. im sure many of these supplements work. some better for others, depends on what our body is lacking I bet..

I can give you a little home remedies that help me. they may sound nuts ( like me! :pinch: ) but i can tell you first hand they work and require low cost and a little patience. my mom is a retired nurse and we we did not grow up privileged so low cost was key!

i mix whatever essential oil i fancy, sometimes a mix, with cayenne pepper. apply. use gloves :blink: lol. and of course it will stain so make sure i have dark PJs on. i just shower it off in the AM. if you need to take it a step further, or instead i tie a t-shirt around my knee. not too tight but snug. like you were bleeding. it may be weird at fist but i like the padded knee/ pillow feel. dont ask me why it works but it does. gives you the heat penetration you need. i try and buy good quality food grade essential oils one or 2 at a time so its not a budget pinch. but any oil works. its the cayenne thats key. water just makes it dry and rub off to a flaky spicy mess

paul, you are stronger than i! i cant give up carbs completely. bad carbs yes for a couple months sure. but all sugar and carbs.. oh boy.. way too italian for that! :lol:

Does not sound weird and I bet its better smelling than garlic. My husband will use crushed garlic and olive oil and wrap it on his wrist and boy is it stinky or it just makes you hungry.

buy good quality food grade essential oils

I have huge distrust of the oils here. My sister-in-law ships us Olive Oil from their own trees(his family were farmers and sheep herders) pressed in his town.(overseas)

Cayenne pepper. It will not sting the skin? I learned to hard way if you are chopping hot peppers to pickle and you do not wear gloves your hands will sting in pain for days. No remedies worked, not vinegar, milk,baking soda, oil....

I have to ask this -as a chef do you have the burn scars on your forearms from baking? The one you get when your arms come in contact with the boiling coils? I feel its a job requirement.

for me it is not any stronger than those pain sprays/ roll ons. with peppermint oil or anything menthol it can be a little too much. ill use frankensense, oregano or marjoram, lemon, ect. or even coconut oil.

and yes you can always tell a 'working cook' by our forearms. i call the heat love taps free tattoos! the bruises aren't any better. my primary still probably thinks im in an abusive relationship! I just bruise like a peach. light skin doesn't help lol

nite all skullcaps kickin..
