This popular arthritis treatment is a BUST
What’s the most important part of your body?
My answer will probably surprise you… because I wouldn’t pick my brain, heart or any of the vital organs.
It’s my KNEES!
Sure, if my heart stopped I’d by dead like anyone else.
But if I couldn’t get up, head out and go for a walk? Well, that would be a kind of death for me too – so believe me when I tell you that I’d do just about ANYTHING to protect my knees from arthritis.
I don’t worry about it too much, despite being right around the age where wear-and-tear arthritis usually takes its toll…
Because I’ve got an Old World secret for knee protection. It’s backed by modern science – and I’ll spill the beans on it in a moment.
First, let me tell you about something I’d NEVER do… no matter how much pain I’m in… and no matter how DESPERATE I might be.
It’s a quick and common treatment that’s been given to millions of older Americans.
But new research exposes the ugly truth about corticosteroid shots.
They not only WON’T help…
They could actually make your knees even worse!
Beat knee pain (no shots or drugs required)
Whether it’s an evening stroll through the gorgeous foothills of western Massachusetts, or a long ramble through the stunning Scottish countryside, my legs get plenty of work on both sides of the Atlantic.
Walking might be the slowest form of transportation.
But it’s the best way to get around, SEE the world (or at least your neighborhood), and keep fit and healthy all at once.
When your knees start to go, you start to slow. It becomes difficult and maybe even impossible to get around – and in what can’t be a coincidence, those arthritis-induced mobility problems often lead to a rapid decline in overall health.
Save your knees, and you can stop that decline.
Just don’t count on corticosteroid shots to get the job done…
A new study shows that they likely WON’T help with pain – and even when they do, the relief levels will be pretty small.
But a stunningly high percentage of patients who get these shots suffer horrifying complications.
The new study finds 8 percent – nearly 1 in 10! – suffer from conditions such as:
- Sudden, rapid acceleration of arthritis
- Rapid destruction of the joint
- Bone loss
- Stress fractures
- Osteonecrosis, aka “bone death.”
Here’s the absolutely frustrating part of this: Docs still offer the shots, despite constant proof it doesn’t work. Meanwhile, a natural blend of enzymes from Germany that IS proven to work gets ignored.
In fact, I’ll bet you’ve never heard of it.
It’s called Wobenzym, and in a 2015 study it went head-to-head against both an NSAID painkiller and a placebo.
It won by EVERY measure.
In fact, it delivered just as much pain relief as the drug in patients with moderate to severe arthritis, AND helped to restore mobility and function… but without the risks that come from NSAIDs.
A number of companies make it. One well-studied blend comes from a German company called Mucos, which is readily available here in the United States under its own name as well as in similar blends distributed by Garden of Life and Douglas Labs.
