Surgery wound healing – triceps

I have been an avid athlete/ bodybuilder for 20 years. Two years ago, I tore my triceps muscle away from the bone requiring surgery.

My workouts hadn’t been the same until starting on RECOVERY®. I noticed a difference after a few weeks and now my injured arm has the same stability and strength as my other arm. Thank you RECOVERY®.

Severe arthritis

My mother’s arthritis was so severe she walked with a cane and was told by the Arthritis Society to move to a home without stairs.

She has since thrown the cane out, and on a recent trip to Rome, climbed over 200 stairs in one day! The Arthritis Society is amazed at the difference!

Hereditary arthritis

I was told that I would always suffer from arthritis. Previously it had been so bad I could not get on most shoes, let alone walk without pain.

After 6 weeks on RECOVERY®, the pain and swelling has completely disappeared.

Injury, pain, arthritis

I would not have believed it if I had not experienced it myself! Contact sports for 20 years and a car accident left me with chronic pain and arthritis.

I began taking RECOVERY® on the advice of the pharmacist. My skin looks better and there are signs of hair growth coming back. Prior to RECOVERY®, I had been hospitalized twice for nerve pain from the car accident. After three weeks on RECOVERY®, the pain was completely gone. I haven’t felt this good since I was about 14 years old!

Professional athlete with back and hand pain

Low back pain and arthritic hands for five years left me discouraged about the length of my professional career. After being diagnosed with a degenerative disk in my lower back while playing for the Montreal Canadiens and wanting to stay away from surgery, I did not think there was much hope.

My pharmacist recommended RECOVERY® and after one month, I felt a vast improvement, reduction in pain and more mobility. It has proven beneficial in cutting down recovery times from injury, training, fatigue and bumps and bruises that go along with playing professional hockey.

Surgery wound healing – knee

Shortly after my knee surgery, the swelling was extreme. I called my pharmacist and asked if there was anything I could take besides acetaminophen with codeine? They recommended RECOVERY®, stating that it was very effective and many patients had displayed very good results. I asked my doctor about RECOVERY® and he said that he had heard about it and that it would probably have benefit. I started taking a little more than the therapeutic dose.

Constant pain over 25 years

I cannot tell you enough about how good that I feel taking RECOVERY®. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I have been in pain 24/7 since about the age of 32.

I have tried many different anti-inflammatories and they do not work like RECOVERY®. I have degenerative disc disease and osteoarthritis. I am just turning 60 and I feel like a kid some days.

Surgery wound healing – Achilles

I severed my Achilles tendon playing recreational football and had surgery five days later to reconnect the tendon. Prior to the surgery I was told by the surgeon that I would lose some mobility and flexibility in the injured ankle, and that I would also lose some running speed.

When the surgery was completed I was in a cast from toe to just below my knee and I had to use crutches. The total time I was in a cast was five weeks, the last three weeks in a walking cast. I was told by the orthopedic surgeon that the rate of healing was phenomenal and that I would not require any physiotherapy. This was nice to hear after a therapist told me I would not be able to do any activity at all for three months, and would be starting my rehab at this point.

It has only been two months and I am riding my mountain bike for over hour rides, doing calf raises, and walking without any limp. I was in very good condition at the time of the accident, so the combination of good conditioning and high doses of RECOVERY® made for the quick healing process. I feel I will be running on a treadmill within two weeks, and I plan to play football in Nov/2003 in the Provincial Championships for topflight Flag Football.

Back and neck pain (chronic)

A few years ago I discovered the benefits of this remarkable product. Shortly after beginning a daily regimen of RECOVERY®, my back and neck pain disappeared.

Surgery wound healing – forearm

RECOVERY® has made a horrible fall down the stairs into an amazing success story! It helped me get the use of my arm and wrist back!

I broke both bones in my wrist 8 weeks ago and had a mini Hoffman apparatus put on (4 pins screwed into the radius bone to traction them back together, joined by a steel bar with wing nuts).sue_anne_hand

I was told I would have it on for about 8 weeks as I had displaced the radius bone 1/8 of an inch. I was also informed I would likely have arthritis, carpal tunnel etc. due to severity of break. I began taking RECOVERY®, initially in November 2001 for 2 c-section scars.

I am in my late fifties, having played a variety of sports for most of my life including rugby, football, field hockey, skiing, tennis, golf and squash.

After being a longtime back sufferer, what really started to plague my activity was deteriorating knees, you name it – I haven’t got it (cartilage, ligaments), but what I do have is probably a fairly advanced case of osteoarthritis.

About 10 years ago I had the first of five Arthroscopic surgeries on both knees. I wear knee braces for just about everything, except day to day activity.

Chronic back pain

I have been taking RECOVERY® for just over two years, one teaspoon morning and night; it has changed my life so much. I have not had to have cortisone shots or use NSAIDs in two years. Prior to taking RECOVERY®, I was taking cortisone shots every two to three months in the tailbone, hips and sacroiliac region. Thank you so much Purica. I recommend RECOVERY® to everyone I meet who complains of joint pain, asthma, fatigue, bursitis, soreness, etc.

Arthritis and fibromyalgia

It appears that I am following my mother’s and grandmother’s footsteps in arthritic joints, particularly the finger joints. Over the last two or three years several joints on my left hand have become ever increasingly disfigured and painful (my mother has had to resort to surgery to restore some movement in her hands). I have been trying everything to prevent the same thing from happening to me. I have tried virtually everything, including ASA, acetaminophen, ibuprofen, Celebrex, Vioxx, herbal remedies, vitamins, etc.; nothing has worked well. The cox-2 inhibitors had somewhat worked for the joint pain and the fibromyalgia pain.

Tendinitis and arthritis

Being a hair stylist, I am constantly straining my hands, wrists and shoulders because of the repetitive nature of my work. A recent severe bout of tendinitis led me to try RECOVERY®; this is an unbelievable product!

Gout, restless leg syndrome and years of pain

I have suffered with restless leg syndrome, heel spurs and gout for a few years. RECOVERY® has made the pain a distant memory.

The only side effect I have noticed is that my grey hair is going back to its original color.

I can crouch now with no problem. I started taking it in September/02 and it worked in about a week. Thanks for a great product.

Pro athlete – severe knee pain

My name is Keith Gracey,  I have a history as pro athlete.

When I was sixteen years of age I was diagnosed by a knee surgeon that I wouldn’t be able to walk let alone have a quality of life without severed pain due to what is known as osteochondritis dissecans in my right knee. I had this knee operated on several times in the last ten years to remove and maintain this condition.

I am now approaching my 43rd birthday. The pain and condition started to get so bad that I was unable to walk, and the pain was so bad I had to take an anti inflammatory and ice the knee down on a nightly basis, not to mention I couldn’t walk more than five minutes without it acting up. At this point I was introduced to RECOVERY®, that was two years ago.

I have never looked back. Within days, I was fully recovered and back exercising like there was never anything wrong at all. I am back playing competitive handball on an international basis. This year I am the number one ranked master’s handball player in Canada. Not to mention the most important thing, being able to walk and play with my two children when ever and where ever pain free.

Psoriasis and muscle pain

In October, 2001, a friend of mine from the Canada Senior Pro Rodeo told me I needed to buy some RECOVERY®.

I had very bad muscle inflammation for 4 ½ years, and my husband had psoriasis ever since we have been married, 35 years. I took RECOVERY® for one month and told my husband, it is not doing me any good so you just take the rest of it.

In February, 2002, my husband, Bob said to me, I think my psoriasis is gone; I have hair growing on my leg. He had been scratching and bleeding on his legs and sheets for 35 years, and now it is cleared up. It is now December, 2003 and he is still healed.

As soon as he told me in February, that he was healed, I ordered 6 more bottles and began taking it in March, 2002.

Severe knee pain and arthritis

In my early years, I played a number of sports at the semi-pro/professional levels and incurred many sprains and associated damage to my joints that healed and permitted me to enjoy a 30-year career as a military pilot. However, as I reached my mid-forties, my knees developed arthritis with severe associated pain. After a major operation on my left knee, I was told that I would probably need an artificial knee in about 10 years in my left knee and my right knee would need attention also.

I retired at 50 years of age and thought that I would be fairly restricted in my chosen second career as a retail owner while helping my wife enjoy her chosen lifestyle breeding and raising Quarter horses. After 5 years of enduring the pain in my knees, I tried your RECOVERY®, as we were giving the equine RECOVERY-EQ® to our horse that had a rear joint problem. With pleasant surprise, I found that the pain in my knees was much less and I was able to move about better. I began using it on a regular basis with fantastic results.

Arthritis and constant knee pain

Medical Diagnosis: Degenerative arthritis in the knees.

I have been a user of RECOVERY® for a long time. I have arthritis in my knees. I had orthoscopic surgery, then my knees got so bad the doctor said I needed a knee replacement.

I took RECOVERY® while away one winter, and was to have surgery in the spring. Come July, I hadn’t heard from them yet so I phoned and cancelled my surgery because my knees were so good. “NO PAIN”.

Arthritis – back, hands, wrists, ankles and knees

Medical Diagnosis confirmed by bone scan: Degenerative arthritis in the mid and lower dorsal spine, in the hands and wrists, knees and ankles.

I have taken RECOVERY® for nearly a year and have experienced no adverse effects. On the contrary, since taking RECOVERY® I am no longer aware of my arthritis – no pain, no stiffness – I feel sound in body again and feel freer mentally because I no longer worry about losing mobility as I age.
