Joint Pain

  1. Restless Legs Syndrome. You Eat Your Way into This

    Due to its peculiar nocturnal onset, Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) is a great destroyer of sleep. Often associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome or other dysbiosis, the incidence of RLS seems on the rise. Think ‘fidget spinners’.

    Neither conventional or natural medicine have advanced any cause or cure. This, from the Mayo Clinic: “There’s no cure for Restless Legs Syndrome, a poorly understood neurologic disorder…”1. Or, Dr. Andrew Weil, MD: “There is no known cause for RLS, although some researchers believe it may involve an imbalance in brain chemicals.”2. Some medicaments, supplements or therapies give occasional or partial relief. Symptom relapse is the norm.

  2. Collagen for Joint Pain

    Collagen is a fibrous glycoprotein, the most abundant protein in the human body. It provides the form of a strong frame, the ‘glue’ that that holds us together.

Personally, I am always trying to push to my body’s limits so I know all too well the pain and inflammation my body generates. I try to lift the heaviest weights possible, have competed in bodybuilding shows and powerlifting meets and also do heavy physical labour.
    When I first tried Curcumin, sometimes in combination with boswellia, they combined to provide immediate alleviation of pain without the harmful side effects that pharmaceutical medicaments inflict.

    The Role of Electrolytes in Athletic Performance

    In athletic performance Electrolytes play a crucial role in the function of muscles and inadequate hydration. They are especially important during intense physical activity and in extreme temperatures, notably in the hot weather of the summer months. Endurance athletes have long known the crucial importance of potassium, sodium and magnesium in preventing heat stroke and severe dehydration, as well as in avoiding the muscle cramping and injury that can be caused by a lack of electrolytes. These aforementioned trace minerals allow for the proper functioning of muscles an
