Relieving joint and back pain naturally
Ever thought there might be a better way to treat pain than the ever present paracetamol? Well you would be right!
A recent article in the ‘British Medical Journal’ (click here to read) looks at a large international study which reported that paracetamol mightn’t be as effective as previously thought for treating lower back pain and osteoarthritis in the knee and hip.
The study found that paracetamol is “ineffective in reducing back pain and disability, or improving quality of life in patients with lower back pain”. It also showed that it offers only a small and “not clinically important benefit” for pain reduction in hip or knee osteoarthritis. Furthermore, the research found that patients using paracetamol were “nearly four times more likely to have abnormal results on liver function tests.”
When paracetamol doesn’t work we often jump for other popular pain killers or a natural alternative. Rose-Hip Vital® is a safe, effective long term alternative for joint pain and inflammation which is not only natural and well tolerated by most people, but unlike many other natural options, it is backed by over 30 scientific studies and nine clinical trials.
We have customers who have suffered long term back or joint pain, and others whose pain and inflammation is intermittent, and all have found the best relief taking Rose-Hip Vital® daily. You can read their stories here.
One of our customers, Denise, uses Rose-Hip Vital® to ease her arthritis pain, and as a result has stopped taking her prescribed Arthritis medication and is sleeping soundly once again.
She explains, “A few weeks ago a pharmacist told me she knew of something that I would be able to take, a natural anti-inflammatory product which she had had many good reports about from her customers. This of course was Rose-Hip Vital. To my surprise after only ten days I felt sure there was some improvement. As the weeks went by I gradually dispensed with the drug doses, one by one, starting with the Oxycontrin, then the Panadol. I just couldn’t believe it and started to feel so much better in myself. I think this was also helped by the fact that the product is high in Vitamin C which has always upset my stomach when taking tablets, but not with Rose-Hip Vital. Another plus! After the suggested three weeks of ten capsules per day I now take the maintenance dose of five capsules. I feel as if I am still improving and what a difference it has made to my life. No more horrible pains in my feet, legs and back at night and therefore, much sounder sleep. I could go on and on! I think I am a much happier person and not so irritable. Today I realised that I had only taken two Osteo-Eze in 36 hours and that was after doing a fair bit of walking etc. The capsules of Rose-Hip Vital are very easy to swallow but I mustn’t forget the best thing, when I had my regular INR blood test for the first time after taking Rose-Hip Vital I wondered how it would be – perfect reading! So what else can I say? Now I want to tell some of my many friends who suffer from arthritis.”
The research undertaken on Rose-Hip Vital® indicates that GOPO® discourages large numbers of white blood cells from accumulating in the joint. This breaks the vicious cycle of joint inflammation, thereby alleviating pain.
And this is what is important. The science behind a brand. When it comes to your health and wellness it’s important to research the plethora of products on the market and understand what they are made from and how they work in order to make an informed choice for your body. More and more people are opting for natural alternatives but not all natural products have undertaken as many clinical trials which have shown to relieve inflammation, and therefore pain, in the body.
Back and joint pain can be debilitating and may result in you being unable to do what you love – or maybe even function properly in your daily life. If paracetamol is not working for you, then maybe it’s time to try our natural alternative.
Rose-Hip Vital® with GOPO® is now acknowledged as the leader in the field of natural anti-inflammatories and it is listed on the Arthritis Australia Complementary Therapies information sheet.
