  1. I think this is very useful information for people suffering from pain. I’m dealing with hip and other joint pain. Also physical therapist said he feels I have the symptoms of fibromyalgia syndrome. Would be great for more information on how to incorporate these in everyday life. Maybe some recipes and teas that can be made. Thank you.

    1. I’m sorry to hear you are suffering from pain, but I really hope that you try some of the natural painkillers that are available. Be patient though, as they are food, and it may take several days for you to really feel the effect.
