Just after Christmas 2015 my GP diagnosed Trochanteric bursitis. I had major problems walking as it was extremely painful. Throughout 2016 the pain spread from the hip down the outside of my right thigh, under my knee cap and down my shin. I had no power in my right leg making it impossible to walk upstairs without walking like a toddler and pulling myself up via the banisters. I could not walk far. My GP injected the hip. This helped for a short while. I tried physio unsuccessfully so then paid to see a chiropractor. In March 2017 after 4 treatments I decided to ask for an MRI scan as the pain was seriously affecting my life & I needed to know what was causing it. The MRI scan showed I had an inflamed disc which was leaning on a nerve. The consultant prescribed a spinal injection which my GP said was only likely to help in the short term. Even though I hate taking pain killers I decided that I would take them as opposed to having a spinal injection. I took the pain killers once a day and only when I knew I was going to be out and about. I also started taking the VITALITY turmeric capsules (2 a day - one morning and one evening).
3 or 4 weeks later I realised I was totally OUT OF PAIN!! I no longer need any pain killers and am gradually building up my strength in my legs by walking. It is a slow process but it has to be remembered that I had largely been out of action for around 18 months! Obviously I would recommend these capsules highly!!!
I normally don't write any reviews, but I am so grateful to this product. Thanks to this, my 7-year old son does not need an operation. True story. My ENT consultant friends say I need to write a case study! He had sleep apnea (when they stop breathing nighttime) for 15-20 seconds at the time due to enlarged tonsils. No problems with tonsillitis. He had always snored but the apnea had been going on for more than a year and getting worse. I would adjust his neck to be hyperextended and open his airway nighttime so he could breath. He needed an adenotonsillectomy, but I just didn’t fancy him having an operation if I could avoid it. So I started researching. And found out that high dose Turmeric (Curcumin) with black pepper is highly anti-inflammatory. There’s plenty of medical studies on high dose turmeric and arthritis, Ulcerative Colitis and even Cancer treatment/prevention. And it has proven to be both safe and effective (Cancer studies still ongoing). So I thought if those highly inflammatory diseases respond so well, my son’s hypertrophic (enlarged) tonsils might too.
I was very surprised but it did help! 10 days after starting the Turmeric, he wasn’t having apneas. Not only that, he doesn’t even snore anymore! Amazing. I’m still over the moon.
Now my whole family is taking this supplement. I have been recommending this to all my patients, family and friends for all kinds of inflammatory conditions.
I started giving my son half dose (up to 3/4) twice a day. We now give him 1 spoonful a day and he is still free of apneas or snoring. Lovely taste too.
I highly recommend this product!
I have heamochromatosis which caused me a great deal of discomfort with joint pain. This product has been a game changer, pain free, feeling much healthier and great liver results. My nurse asked if i was on asprin ??? As my blood flow was so good. It detoxes your whole body including your blood. And its natural !!!! wonderful creation :-)
Can you please tell me why it must be taken before food?
Really pleased with the difference in all my joints ì have a lot less pain and have a new lease of life Thank you
