Ok, ok…I know it’s a play on words.
But my darn knee does need a little help!
So off to one of my local health food stores I go again.
I had been doing some research on the net for a product that would help my knee and my body clear scar tissue. The first product I tried, Flex Protect from the Rice Patty collection, actually made the problem worse! I can only surmise that it was because of the Cox2 inhibiting properties of this natural combination – and somehow that cross reacts with the NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) like naprosyn and ibuprofen (both of which I had reactions to)
I was looking to try a new product called FYI Restore by Garden of Life. I wanted to use it in combination with the regular FYI but wanted to be sure I would know which one I was reacting to IF I had a reacton.
I did find FYI Restore helpful and it seemed to be helping my body break up some of the scar tissue, which helped to decrease swelling. After 10 days, I added the regular FYI which helped to decrease the tightness I felt in the joint and seems to be helping with mobility.
To this regimen I added 5000mg of Carlson’s Norwegian Cod Liver Oil to help with inflammation and get my Omega 3’s. This seems to augment the effects of the FYI product, especially if taken before bedtime.
I recently learned of a more potent Omega 3 product called NutraMarine DNA and will order some shortly for a trial.
So, if you’re looking for joint food, consider FYI by Garden of Life.
