susceptible to joint pain and inflammation. Proper nutrition and
exercise techniques can help alleviate many of the symptoms of joint
pain. The most popular and effective joint supplements typically

repair, as well as help with pain and inflammation.

chronic rheumatoid arthritis. Your lifestyle, diet, medication and
exercise all play an important role in deciding the nature of your

As we age, bodily collagen breaks down,
cartilage and bone is subject to wear and tear, cellular regeneration
is slowed down in the body, illness and disease, injury and stress all
leave their own marks on the overall health and fitness. The pain
between joints is mostly due to thinning of the cartilage, which no
longer acts as the shock absorber. Inflammation of the joints due to
increasing friction and wearing down of cartilage and bone results in
joint deformity and arthritis.
Doctors recommend Glucosamine and
Chondroitin. Collagen, Hyaluronic acid (HA), and Methylsulfonylmethane
(MSM) are some of the newer and more promising drugs being used by
people suffering from joint pain.
Joint supplements seem to reduce pain and
swelling, repair damaged tissue and also increase joint strength in
two to three months after you start taking them.

"I had extreme pain all over my body,
particularly in my shoulders and knees. My knees would become swollen
to the point where I could hardly walk. I needed help in the morning
to get dressed. I felt despaired. My regular doctor told me to just
take Motrin, drink tea, and sleep on my stomach.
I was in desperate need of help. I was tired
of getting up every morning and crying because the pain was so bad. When first coming to see Dr. Wei, it took a while to find the best
treatment for me. But during the whole time of finding out what was
best for me, Dr. Wei was encouraging, sympathetic, hopeful, and told
me that together we were not going to give up. I felt that I had met
what I call my "miracle worker".
I cannot sing enough praises about Dr. Wei. If it weren't for him, I
know I wouldn't be walking today."
