After taking ibuprofen & naprosyn for back pain, knee pain, tendinitis, I developed severe stomach pains that would jolt me awake from a sound sleep. My then-doctor recommended Mylanta or keeping food on my nightstand. One day I finally realized the meds were causing stomach pain far worse (and probably dangerous) than my back or knee pain, so I stopped taking these OTC anti-inflammatories and instead went the "natural route" through physical therapy, chiropractor, acupuncture over the past decade, all with good success.After a severe case of Lateral Epicondylitis that was difficult to treat, I found a doctor who specialized in pain management & recommended Zyflamend (I was told it would take 3-4 weeks to notice results). I'd seen it at health food & natural foods grocery chains. I was worried about the price at first but am pleased and happy with the results - no stomach pain or side effects at all! Because ibuprofen can cause liver or kidney problems and naprosyn has been linked to heart problems, I prefer the safe, gentle and very high quality supplement Zyflamend instead. I have switched to other New Chapter products; Vitamin Shoppe offers the best prices I've found.
Some people may not need the PM version though..
I had this recommended to me during knee surgery recovery as an alternative to taking OTC or Meds.It works - I take 3 a day, some take more, up to 6.Special benefit is when I started taking last December my Raynaud's issues were minimized over a few weeks of usage. I did email New Chapter, but no word back. It just works..
It's the only thing that stops the throbbing pain of arthritis in my hands. The pain was enough to keep me awake at night but with Zyflamend I can sleep right through..
I have inflammation in my shoulders very badly which pinches nerves and causes a lot of pain. After talking to a New Chapter rep, I decided to try the zyflammend. It works great and fast for my joint pain. Then I did some more research on the ingredients and how inflammation affects the body. This products is also amazing for heart/cariovascular health, liver health, and skin health. Afterall, acne is an inflammatory response, so I have upped my dosage to four per day and it really helps my skin get over break-outs much faster.
Once you try it, the price won't scare you away! It works!.
It is expensive but has worked wonders for my knee painand a better choice than NSAIDS..
I had a burning sensation all over my upper body for weeks. I tried all the alkaline foods and herbs, but this stuff worked right away..
I have inherited arthritis in most joints. At 68 I wanted more than glucosamine, chondroitin, and MSM could provide. NSAIDS caused bleeding, sinus problems, and failed to really fill the need for pain relief without major side-effects. The only problem I have had is taking the stuff on an empty stomach- the reflux is pretty gross, but not fatal. I stopped taking Zyflamend for a week during a business trip and the stiffness and pain returned with a vengence. It works for me. It is expensive, but worth the price..
