Ancient discovery holds key to joint tissue regeneration

November 19, 2015

Pat Jones, 68, a former Olympic hurdler and now a dog agility trainer from Woking, Surrey, said: "When I was in my teens I was very sporty and realised my sporting dreams by being chosen to represent Great Britain in the hurdles at the 1968 Mexico Summer Olympic Games. 

"I've always valued being healthy and active and my work as a trainer of agility dogs keeps me on the go all the time. 

"Unfortunately my hip and knee joints are now paying the price and I have been diagnosed with arthritis.

"I have been able to manage my condition through diet, exercise and a carefully controlled mixture of painkillers, anti-inflammatory drugs and injections. 

"Despite this, I regularly suffered from bad flare ups, which would leave me in great pain and aching joints which severely limits my movement. 

"If I walked for 20 minutes, I was in dreadful pain for several hours afterwards. 

"I didn't want to undergo knee surgery, because it is a major operation, but for the first time I was beginning to think about it. 

"Within a week of starting the Flexeze, I thought I was simply having a good run because my recovery rate after going for a walk was shorter than it had been. 

"But the improvement carried on, and suddenly I was able to walk the dogs for two hours a day. 

"At Christmas, I stopped taking painkillers for the first time in ten years. 

"I still have the odd bad day, but they are few and far between. I have also noticed that my knee is much less swollen than it had been before."

Scientific studies appear to back Flexeze's claims that it is ideal for people who suffer from constant or intermittent joint pain and related conditions such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, as well as those who wish to take action to address the deterioration of cartilage in their joints either through age or exercise.
