Jul 21, 2016 · Any women members here that have PTSD, and Acute Clinical Depression? in Mental Health

Praise God! I find that it is good to keep a journal to document your feelings as well as God’s promises. Find a quiet place and spend time with God daily reading his Word and talking to him. He will comfort you. When you feel the depression overcoming you the Bible says to resist the devil and he will flee. God bless you Liz!

Hi Pablo : I take supple which contains Glucosamine and Chondroitin. The drink comes from a MD who had really bad arthritis. It is ordered online and I have been on the automatic shipment for 3 years . I have not tried stopping it . I did try over the counter Glucosamine and Chondroitin before the supple but it did not have the same effect .

Jul 15, 2016 · Osteoarthritis - what helps? in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Hi: I was DX with osteoarthritis of the Rt hip in 2011. I had 2 steroid shots the first year and then I asked for PT. Spent a year doing the PT exercises at home and for the past 2 years I have been going to the gym . I do not have pain so do not take pain pills. I am very active ; climbed to the top of red rock canyon in Las Vegas last week. My concern is when do I need to take action about the lack of cartilage? I see my MD about once a year and he looks at the xray and says ” that does not look so good”. In 2011 I limped, I could not lift my leg to put on pants or get into my SUV. I took the maximum of motrin. What I think has helped me was the regular exercise following the guidelines of my PT instructions. I have been taking Supple drink for 3 years as well. I do not limp, have almost full range of motion in exercises. I do 30 minutes on the treadmill, 15 minutes on the elliptical and 20-30 minutes of weight training ( special attention to strengthening the hip muscles ) I hope that this helps.

I took Evista for a few years for bone density . I had no problems . It was expensive so I stopped taking it . My bone density took a hit but I am still borderline so am not taking medication . Exercise and weight training keeps it a bay so far.

I do not want surgery and was interested in stem cell therapy instead of hip replacement. Does anyone have experience in this?
