Osteo-Arthritis Rheumatoid Arthritis Spondylitis
A state registered nurse says :

"I am writing in praise of your product (the mussel extract). Nearly 2 years ago I developed rheumatoid arthritis of both wrists and spondylitis of the cervical spine.

My doctor prescribed the usual anti-inflammatory drugs but as a nurse, having seen the side effects of these drugs on patients, I was naturally reluctant to take the medication.

Leading a very busy life as a wife, mother and holding down a full time nursing job I decided to try other things. I tried homeopathy, which was expensive and not at all successful.

Then I read an article on the mussel extract. I toyed with the idea of trying it then at the company where I work as the Occupational Health Nursing Sister. I talked to a young man who was a sufferer of poly arthritis and had a hip replacement operation. He told me that he had a book on the green-lipped mussel, which he let me read.

I was impressed and decided to try a course of the capsules. This was in April. The book said that some people had to take the capsules for several months before experiencing relief. I was prepared to persevere. I was pretty desperate at the time. I was very unwell, low in health and spirit. Unable to sleep at night, loss of power in my arms, shoulders, wrists and hands. I considered I was in the prime of life (49) and had 10 years or so to go to retire from my nursing job. I found that in the mornings I could hardly lift my arms to dress and comb my hair. The pain was excruciating but I would not be beaten and continued to go to work each day.

I took the maximum dose of the mussel extract daily. Very slowly I began to notice an improvement by the summer months May/June. The heat and swelling began to ease in the wrists. Then some days the pain would return to its maximum, especially if I was overtired or had done certain household jobs but somehow I felt I could cope a little better.

By September, I knew that I was atleast getting true results. Restful nights, a feeling of well being, only an occasional mild ache in the neck, wrists, shoulders and muscles. Infact so slight to what I was having that I could almost ignore the discomfort."

This describes the emotional and relief stages that sufferers of arthritis go through.
