Naturally Relieving Rheumatoid Arthritis Symptoms
Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic inflammatory and autoimmune disorder that attacks the joints and other body parts. We share some of our customer stories and how their symptoms were relieved thanks to Rose-Hip Vital® with GOPO®
Your body’s immune system is meant to fight off infections to keep you healthy. In an autoimmune disease, your immune system attacks healthy tissue. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) targets the lining of the joints, causing inflammation and joint damage. The most common symptoms are joint pain, swelling, stiffness, tenderness and loss of function.
While there is no cure for RA, with early diagnosis and careful management, most people with RA are able to live full and active lives. The impact RA has on each individual varies as no two cases are exactly the same. Finding a treatment regime that works for you can be challenging, however many Australians living with RA are finding Rose-Hip Vital® with GOPO® to be significantly beneficial.
Rose-Hip Vital® with GOPO® was the subject of a significant study published in the medical journal Phytomedicine in 2010. This paper found that in a randomised controlled study, RA patients could benefit from the GOPO which is found in our product. Click here to read the paper.
Below we share two testimonials from people who have suffered from RA and have found relief with Rose-Hip Vital:
“I am 51 years old and am a nurse for Aged Care. Since 2006, I have been diagnosed with Mild Degenerative Arthritis, Polymyalgia Rheumatica and Elevated Rheumatoid Factor. I was in so much pain, it would feel like my left leg was a piece of wood when I walk. I could barely walk up and down stairs at the train station.
At night, it was a nightmare every night. My whole body was in so much pain, I could not sleep. It felt like I was going out of my skin and it is difficult to even explain the pain I had. I continued to work and did not take any sick leave.
My doctor put me on medications pain killers, Mobic and Prednisone (which made me put on weight) and the doctor also said it will take up to two years to get better. I was tired of going back to the Doctor for follow ups. My pain was not getting better, but I was getting fat.
I said to myself ‘Enough is enough’. I stopped all the medications and I heard about the Rose-Hip Vital from a Health Store. When I passed by the Health Store, I said to myself that I will try something that is natural and without side effects. I bought one bottle and I felt my pain was slowly subsiding. When I finished the bottle of Rose-Hip Vital, my pain was almost gone.
I continued taking Rose-Hip Vital. I went to my Doctor and asked for a rheumatoid factor blood test and my blood test show no Rheumatoid Factor after about 8 weeks. What a relief. All the pain was gone and I could walk like a normal person. I even lost weight and back to my 55 kilos. Since my diagnosis, I have been taking Rose-Hip Vital every morning.”
Maxine from Sandy Beach, NSW
“I have been dealing with the impact of rheumatoid arthritis for nearly a decade now, and in that time of course have tried many, many lifestyle changes, supplements and concoctions from the logical to the absurd. This was either a sign of an open mind or pure desperation, but it was all in the hope of reducing the residual inflammation and pain that was left when conventional medicine could do no more.
After so long, it becomes an accepted part of life and you work around it, and your world gets a bit smaller as a result. After about six weeks of taking Rose Hip Vital, I began noticing how much easier it was to climb stairs and how much wrinklier my knuckles were now that the inflammation was reduced. I am still admiring my new found knuckle wrinkles!
Anyway, long story short, you’ve probably heard all this before but, now, I can chop vegies and carry parcels without causing pain in my fingers and wrists, I don’t hobble around first thing in the morning because my feet hurt, I’ve been walking on the beach in the morning whereas before I could barely make it down the stairs, and I’ve even started running up the sandhill at the end of the beach….. not to mention being able to go hard at the Gym without fear of causing pain.
It’s really fantastic to start feeling strong and healthy again, as I had honestly forgotten what it is like and my life has expanded as a result. I am now looking forward to having a great year…”
