Q. My friend has been trying glucosamine with chondroitin for aches in joints, she has found it has not helped with pain in the hand/thumb joints but it has helped with her ankle, what do you think what could she try?
A. In a naturopathic consultation I can outline a diet to optimise mineral health and reduce inflammation. I would also recommend a specialised formula available as practitioner range which is designed to improve joint/cartilage function and reduce further degeneration of the joint capsule.
There are also some excellent herbal formulations which help with the discomfort of joint pain. Naturopathic Clinical Medicine can offer options can be discussed in your appointment.
Consultations available online and in person with Natural Ange
