If you are one of the individuals who have spent significant time suffering with chronic deep somatic pain that is the result of injuries to ligaments, tendons, muscles, fascia, or bone, you already know how it affects you! Doctors have been, and still are, knowinglytreating connective tissue problems using a model that was scientifically outdated decades ago. Instead of dealing with the osis, they are stuck in a time warp treating itis. They typically use things like anti-inflammatory drugs, NSAIDS, and Cortico-Steroids that actually destroy collagen-based tissues! Again, tissue injury is notcaused by inflammation, it attracts it!
The next step is to get some specific nutrition into the injured area so that the tissue actually has the raw materials available to repair and regenerate injury to the elastic, collagen-based connective tissues. Standard Process makes a wonderful product called Ligaplex (LIGAPLEX I for acute, LIGAPLEX 2 150 for chronic). Whole Food Vitamin C is critical for healing any kind of connective tissue. Ligaplex has this and other vitamins / minerals / nutritional complexes in it.
Because most of these tissues that we are discussing attach or anchor to bones, a good calcium supplement is in order as well. For you ladies that are being sold Bone Density Studies in order to get you started on the so-called bone building drugs “- drugs that actually cause osteoporosis; pay attention! Most calcium supplements are crap! (can I really say that on my own website?) American women get more calcium than the women of any other country in the world “- yet we have the highest rate of osteoporosis. Do you detect a snow job taking place? Standard Process makes a product called Calcifood (wafers or powder). It is the only product like it on the planet “- a cold-processed, whole-bone, bone meal supplement. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH CALCIUM ALONE! (especially if it comes from rocks or shells)
