Around 2.5 years ago, I began experiencing joint pain, swelling, and inflammation. Until then I had never had any medical issues and would call myself a “healthy” person. I went to several doctors and spent thousands of dollars on medical tests and doctor visits and the only thing they were able to tell me is “you probably have a virus of some sort and it will eventually get better.” My blood-work showed inflammation in my body, but everything checked out fine. My knee and lower leg became swollen to almost twice its size.
As a home daycare provider, I am constantly on my feet and moving all day long. My initial symptoms eventually subsided but I continued to have re-occurrences of swelling, pain, and inflammation in my lower extremities. Running, walking up stairs, lifting babies, and sitting cross-legged on the floor all became difficult….next to impossible. I would have stretches of time where the pain was less, but never gone.
My daughter introduced me to flourish probiotic after seeing such good results with her own family. At first I was skeptical, and wondered how this bottle of “good bugs” could make me feel better, but I was willing to try! I began taking flourish in September of 2016 and after less than a week I woke up and thought “that’s weird, my joints don’t hurt.” Each day my symptoms seemed to improve and by October I was able to RUN for the first time in 2.5 years. I am able to go up stairs and sit cross-legged on the floor without any issues. I can now perform all of my daily activities with little to no pain and the only thing I have changed is adding 2 doses of flourish to my daily routine. I am a huge believer in this product and strongly recommend it to anyone struggling with joint pain and inflammation! I have seen a world of a difference in how I feel!
