I have struggled with a weak ankle since my school days. I sustained an injury playing tennis. Walking for long distances and standing for too long left me with a swollen ankle. I could walk, as long as my ankle was in motion, but sitting down and giving my ankle time to cool off, left me with a lot of pain. Sometimes the pain would subside after 24 hours, or sometimes only after 2-3 days. As I was getting older it became worse, until I went to see a specialist. After cortisone injection, straight into the affected area, actually exacerbated the pain. This was the turning point for me and I decided to do some research on my own. I had visions of ending in a wheelchair even before my retirement.

This was when I was introduced to the Your Life Health Products, plus minus 24 years ago. I started using Glucosamine, to which later on Chondroitin was added. After 2 weeks I felt so much better and later, after the Chondroitin was added, I could even forget that I had lived with a lot of pain for so many years. The stiffness has not totally left, but I can move my ankle after a warm up and I am without pain.

Then over one Christmas period I had put in my order too late, only to hear that you had also run out of stock. After being without your product for a month, the pain was back with a vengeance. That is when I realized how much this product helped me to live a normal life.

I cannot just use any Osteoarthritis products on the market, since most of them warn against the use of shellfish. I am highly allergic to shellfish. Now my husband also uses Glucosamine with Chondroitin, with good results, for his knee, an old rugby injury.
