 Natural Supplements for Joint Pain

Curcumazyme: This extremely powerful formula combines 1000mg of highly absorbable Curcumin Phytosome Extract (Meriva™) per serving with therapeutic levels of the enzyme Serratiopeptidase. The combination of these two ingredients work synergistically to safely and effectively reduce pain and inflammation anywhere in the body, especially the joints. Most patients equate the relief they obtain from this product to that of strong and potentially harmful prescription anti-inflammatory drugs. The typical dosage used by patients is 2 capsule 2-3 times a day as needed for pain and inflammation.
Joint Repair ComplexThis product provides the perfect combination of joint supportive nutrients for the proper repair and regeneration of cartilage and connective tissue. This product works extremely well in conjunction with the Curcumazyme for more moderate to severe osteoarthritis symptoms. The typical dosage used successfully by patients is 1-2 capsule 2 times a day.
Triple Strength Fish Oil: Fish Oil provides the body with an excellent, highly usable form of omega 3’s (EPA and DHA). Because this product is 3 times the potency of other fish oil products, fewer pills are needed to see clinical results such as maintaining a normal inflammatory response. If there is an imbalance between omega 6’s and 3’s in the body then increased inflammation becomes more prevalent. Most patients, even if they are consuming fish and other omega 3 containing foods on a regular basis will often time show up low through blood testing. Patients can achieve optimal levels by taking only 2-3 capsules a day resulting in a significant reduction in overall pain and inflammation.
Pure Primal Collagen Powder: Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It’s found in your muscles, skin, bones, cartilage, ligaments and blood. As we age our cartilage weakens and can break down leading to stiff, achy joints. Research studies have shown that joint pain severity can be reduced by over 33% in patients with osteoarthritis when they took a collagen powder supplement daily. This tasteless powder can be easily mixed into your favorite beverage. The typical dosage used by patients is 2 rounded tablespoons 1-2 times per day.

Patient Testimonial

Here is a testimonial from a long time patient who was suffering from severe osteoarthritis of the knees who had excellent results from my multi-step approach, which included all of this month’s highlighted products.
Dear Dr. Aieta,
You have made my arthritic, “ready for knee replacement left knee” so much better that the surgeon who took the x-rays 3 years ago told me the only thing to rectify my situation was a knee replacement, was more than a little surprised that there is so little arthritis in the left knee, that the right knee now has more arthritis.
After two years of waking and walking with extreme pain and taking over the counter anti-inflammatory meds and prescription drugs, as a last resort I turned to you for help before submitting to the knee replacement. You started me on a treatment plan that consisted of physical medicine, acupuncture, dietary changes and your amazing custom joint supplements. I religiously followed all your advice taking all the supplements and following your diet to a tee and after only 3 months on your regimen I am completely pain free! I am off all anti-inflammatory and pain meds and now come every 3 weeks for an “acupuncture tune-up.”
I want to thank you for what you have done for me in the past and what I know you will be doing for me in the future.
With sincere gratitude,
