Why Dr. Sheryl Recommends This Supplement for Pain & Inflammation
Chronic pain not only destroys the quality of life but suffering from prolonged pain and inflammation can be one the biggest contributor to destroying our overall health and shortening our life span. As a naturopath I always teach my patients that there are 2 key factors to staying healthy one is eliminating chronic pain and the other is to keep your pH in a balanced state. If you are suffering from constant pain the pH of the body will be effected causing the tissues to become too acidic, which can cause serious disease even cancer. It is critical to your overall health to eliminate chronic pain and inflammation.
What most people choose to use for pain is Non-Steroidal Drugs (Advil, Aleve, and Motrin)
According to the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA), each year the side effects of Non Steroidal Drugs or NSAIDs hospitalize over 100,000 people and kill 16,500 in the U.S., mostly due to bleeding stomach ulcers. NSAIDs can also cause damage to both kidneys and liver. I like to encourage my patients to use a more natural approach to inflammation and pain.
Unlike the over the counter solutions OPC-3 is such a powerful anti-inflammatory giving relief to pain without the negative side effects. In fact OPC’s have multiple health benefits.
I have witnessed the effects of OPC-3 over the years with patients who have suffered from different forms of pain stemming from all sorts of conditions like arthritis, Lupus, migraine headaches and back pain. Having a natural alternative for pain and inflammation that has been clinically proven to reduce pain systemically without the negative side effects is a true find.

“I have had migraines since I was about ten. They are so bad sometime that my husband and family have taken me to the hospital. I have cried many of time wishing the pain would go away. I believe it is one of the worse pains I have ever had in my life. If you had one yourself you know what I am talking about. I have seen many doctors and tried all of kinds of medicines most of which made me tired or dizzy. I also had about two to three headaches a week in which I would take 4 Advil at time, a couple of times a day. Did you know if you take to many Advil that it could hurt your liver? My husband heard from some the guys at work about this OPC 3 product, but he was skeptical about it. But he finally decided that it could not hurt or be any worse than what I go through with the headaches. He got a bottle from his co-worker at work, we decided after three months if it did not work we wouldn’t buy anymore. Well it has now been 1 year and I have not had a migraine, and believe or not, I have not had to take any Advil for anything. When everyone had allergies and sinus infections this year I did not. I not saying it is a cure it just helps.”

Recommended Complementary Products for Pain & Inflammation
nutraMetrix® Curcumin Extreme™
Curcumin has proven even better for relieving arthritis pains and stiffness than expensive pharmaceuticals, without side effects. It has also been proven to protect the liver and gallbladder. Curcumin is both an anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant. Epidemiological studies of people who have a high dietary intake of turmeric show a lower incidence of cancer. Curcumin also helps create the master anti-oxidant glutathione.
Many other tests with curcumin extracts have been documented with in vitro (petri dish/test tube) and in vivo (living organisms) trials that show how amyloid plaque, considered a cause of Alzheimer’s, is suppressed by curcumin.
Curcumin is employed mostly as an antioxidant; though it was traditionally used to promote stomach and joint comfort. The immune-balancing activity of curcumin has been demonstrated through multiple mechanisms to support normal COX-2 and NF-KappaB levels in the body. This is where curcumin demonstrates its ability to reduce inflammation much like the NSAIDs but without the negative side effects.
Until now, curcumin has been known to have poor bioavailability, requiring high doses to promote health. BCM-95® delivers significantly more pharmacologically bioactive curcumin into the blood than other curcumin sources. This new delivery system allows for a variety of health benefits.
“I am twenty-six years old and I have been diagnosed with combined conditions of chronic tendonitis, arthritis, and fibromyalgia, a non-degenerative muscle disease.
Modern medicine failed me. I was unable to treat any of the conditions in a conventional manner because of the adverse reaction it would have on one of the other conditions. It was recommended that I give up working and accept a life of constant pain.
I am a production worker and due to that type of work, I have
developed carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive motion injuries. My hands deteriorated to the point of being unable to hold a coffee cup by the handle. My writing had become illegible and I had to start printing again. I was unable to pick up change from a flat surface. This is just a small list of the changes, which affected the quality of my life. I remember at one point when my husband shut the bedroom door before leaving for work and it took me a half hour to get it open.
After using OPC-3 and the antioxidants formula for a week, I can do all the things I have mentioned and then some. These products have given me the most relief I have experienced to date. I stopped taking all of the prescription medication two months ago due to constant nausea that was a side effect of the drugs, so I am positive the results I am experiencing are solely from the Isotonix products. I have an increase in flexibility, mobility, a decrease in swelling, and best of all, a drastic reduction in pain, which has remained at a tolerable level without any medication. Please try it!! I have so much hope for the future. I feel great. It is incredible.”
