I was skeptical in the beginning but after 3 days my knee and hip pain was all but gone. I’ve walked with a limp for about 3 years because of osteoarthritis pain in my left hip. I no longer have a limp!
Mike Kofski, Indiana
I was very skeptical at first, but after two weeks of being on Joint Mints I was feeling so much better. Then after the 20th day, I woke up totally pain free! It was the first time in months, if not years this has ever happened. I am very excited about Joint Mints and look forward to a long relationship with this treatment!
Donna Everitt, Ohio
Joint Mints have given me hope again. Because of Joint Mints I can be the momma I want to be without the severe joint pain getting in the way all the time. Thank you Dr Roberts for giving me my life back!!!!
Julie Morgan, Massachusetts
Dear Dr. Steve;
Well. I hate to say this BUT…You were right…for the most part I am free of pain after two months on Joint Mints. My knees are doing much better and do not awaken me any more. I have a feeling of general well-being, thank you so much. I can live a better life without pain. I cannot say thank you enough.
Your painless follower, Jean Intervallo, Arkansas
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I have osteoarthritis in my foot and today (after being on the Joint Mints for a little more than one week) I felt no pain at all for the first time in years.
AGAIN, THANK YOU.
Jerry Thoreson, Washington
Took two Joint Mints a day and noticed improvement within two weeks. Would recommend Joint Mints to anyone experiencing joint problems. The Joint Mints haven’t let me down, and the ability to get off ibuprofen was a big plus for me.
When I came back from Iraq and Afghanistan I had a lot of joint and muscle pain in almost every joint. I got on Joint Mints and could see good results within about 2 weeks. I have no doubt that Joint Mints is helping my overall well being as far as joints and muscles.
Thank You, Bob Calvert, Colorado
My joint pain level in my hands, hips and knees has decreased and I can now do a lot more without pain.
Anna Trudeau, Illinois
I’m 55 now and I’ve been having back pain since I was 25. So I was a bit skeptical, but I took Joint Mints and after about a month my lower back pain went completely away. I was amazed. I would recommend Joint Mints for anyone who has back pain.
Nightly I had a very severe joint pain from osteoarthritis in my knees and ankles. It was very difficult for me to stand up and walk, I have been using different pain relievers but nothing worked until a friend gave me Joint Mints…I took 2 tablets a day morning and mid afternoon for one week the result was less pain on my legs. On my second week of continuous use of Joint Mints the excruciating pain was completely gone. I was able to sleep comfortably every night without the pain bothering me.
Simply put, I’m a believer since having tried Joint Mints. After six weeks I don’t even think anymore about how my knee will feel before doing whatever I want, from walking my dogs to spending ten hours organizing my garage. I no longer have any limitations to the amount of physical activity my knee can handle.
I’m at day 26 of using Joint Mints and can’t wait to see what another month brings! I am not all better, but I am so much better than I have been in a long time. I still have some joint pain, but it isn’t the horrid joint pain I’ve had for so many years. If I start to feel that my Joint Mints aren’t working, it’s then I realize I forgot to take it.
I can easily say that even at this short amount of time Joint Mints has been very beneficial. I have several other diagnoses besides arthritis and they kind of run into each other. like I said before, I cant wait to see how I feel in another month!!
I am 64 years old and work eight yours a day on my feet, walking on concrete. By the sixth hour of work, my knees would be really painful, and felt swollen. After about a week on Joint Mints I found that the pain was gone! I am able to work my full shift without the pain and discomfort I had dealt with for so long. I especially like the fact that I am not taking more drugs, but a simple, natural remedy.
Thank you, Joint Mints!
I have been taking Joint Mints for 2 months now. I knew it was helping, it made the bad days better and the good days a lot better. I told people it was working but wasn’t a cure all, but…..then I ran out, and that is when I learned just how much it is helping!
All of my joints, my back, ankles… well I’m having pain, that I haven’t had for 2 months! Day before yesterday was day 1 w/o. I was a little achy, but not too bad, yesterday a little worse. Today? Well just let me say, I’ve had to stop typing at least 4 times to write this because I’m so fatigued from the achiness. I just want to close with, I am anxiously waiting for my Joint Mints, and when people ask from now on, I’ll tell them it’s life altering! Thank you Dr Roberts!
I am amazed at the pain coverage of the Joint Mints Lozenge. I am no longer worried about carrying heavy items, even heavy grocery bags with their tiny handles, My fingers, for many years, have felt tight when I try to make a fist. That is also much less now, and I’m not having to change the heavier bag from one hand to the other as I walk. I no longer feel the pain of sciatica. I can bend over, stretching the muscles in the back of the legs with no pain. I can sit down on a hard seat for long periods without any pain. I’m 80 and now enjoying life again!
This is a testimonial about the Joint Mints —This stuff is AWESOME! I have been in such pain, all day everyday. I hate prescription medications as it has too many side effects and the over the counter products like Tylenol Arthritis, Aleve, Advil and other products just don’t work for me. I can’t believe this natural product works as well as it did for me. Last night was the first night I slept thru without pain. I just can’t believe it! It’s a miracle for me. I’m so happy and I can move without pain. Thank you so much — I could kiss you all!!
Dear Dr. Steve: I’ve been taking the Joint Mints everyday for the last month and the arthritis pain has decreased a lot, although it is not gone all together. My sister and I went skiing this past weekend and her arthritis is much worse than mine, I had her take the pills while we were away. Her hands and back were dramatically better when she woke up the next morning, she couldn’t believe the difference.
Dear Dr. Steve;
Because of Joint Mints:
1. I have more energy.
2. My herniated discs in my neck are pain free enough that I’m able to turn my head from side to side (what? no big deal? well, you’re wrong!)
3. My herniated lumbar discs, though still tender, allow me to walk up all 19 of these wretched steps to get into the house. I do this MANY times a day!
4. Since the onslaught of fibromyalgia and lupus, I have had the energy of a sloth. I not only have elevated energy, but I made it through my daughter’s cheerleading camp – which turned out to be 2 1/2 hours a day, 5 days a week and all day Saturdays. On top of that, I volunteered for all of the children’s age groups who participated in ‘spirit bowl! I was able to work my butt off!! AND, I suffered no ill effects from it. Since the lupus, this was a first for me.
I am weeping as I tell you this. It is just THAT important to me to be able to be a mom to my children–whom, by the way, have watched me wither away in either a bed or chair. Again, Dr. Roberts, thank you for changing my life. In so doing, you’ve changed the lives of those I love and who love me.
I’m so fortunate to have found you. Joint Mints have changed my life more than you’ll ever know. Thank you.
Since starting Joint Mints I’ve seen a major improvement in all of my joint pain symptoms my body pain and my rheumatoid arthritis – and no side effects!!!
Of course, I’ve tried many things to help my symptoms of pain, stiffness, fatigue and anxiety. None of them helped until I found Joint Mints. Joint Mints has proven to be a successful alternative to not only doctor prescribed medicines, but also to other natural treatments.
Dear Dr Roberts,
I am a 50 year old man who has recently suffered a job related accident that left me with herniated discs in c1, c2, c3, c4, c5. Unfortunately, I am not in a position to just quit work and collect disability as I still have young children. Not only would I refuse surgery, but have been told by the orthopedist that the area is just too large to attempt any repairs.
My doctor put me on 800 mg of ibuprofen, muscle relaxers and vicodin. Well, with my stomach ulcers, the ibuprofen tears me up, as does the vicodin. The muscle relaxers put me at greater risk of another injury due to drowsiness. The prescriptions didn’t address the pain, anyway. I was only going through the motions of what my doctor told me to do.
I began taking Joint Mints after the first week of the injury, which my stomach is easily tolerating. I am not drowsy, and as it seems the Joint Mints has a cumulative effect, I am still on the job and haven’t missed any work since the week after starting to use the Joint Mints three or four times a day. I actually have regained some range of neck motion that wasn’t expected by my doctor or therapist. The stabbing pain has subsided and I’m able to sleep again. In the mornings, I’m not stiff anymore, either.
I am on no prescriptions at all, now. I gladly get up in the morning, take my Joint Mints and head to work. I keep a bottle of it with me at all times. The guys at work have asked me what it is. When I tell them of the results I’ve had, they look skeptical. All I can do is laugh, because I was skeptical, too–in the beginning. Joint Mints work. vicodin did NOT.
Love the Joint Mints–excellent product!
I have been feeling so good after I started using Joint Mints that I wondered if I was completely cured from the pain of inflammation. Then I started doing push-ups. Later that day I picked up something and felt wrist pain. The pain wasn’t nearly as bad as it had been before using Joint Mints and I was easily able to wait for the evening lozenge. I slept great and woke up to no pain in the wrist.
I think Joint Mints work great. I tore a hamstring 2 weeks ago so that has slowed me up but all things considered I like the product and will recommend it to anyone with joint pain.
Since starting Joint Mints my joint and muscle pain has decreased to almost nothing and I have not felt this good in years! I am very thankful to this product. I didn’t like taking so much ibuprofen, and I have only taken that twice since starting Joint Mints. Thank you.
More important than the pain relief is the change in flexibility and ability to move normally. I can go up and down the stairs now almost like I used to – perhaps not as fast yet but I can do it normally alternating feet on each stairs. I have not been able to do that in about 5 years.
I did a number of yard and garden chores this week-end that I avoided for years due to pain – and I did them with no problem. I feel ‘capable’ today, capable of doing anything I want to do, and not holding back or being careful not to overdue it. When I can return fully to exercise like walking and running then I’ll be ‘set free to get back to me’!
I am a 55 year old male with severe arthritis in both my knees, neck and back. For the past two years, I have been taking vicodin ES, 3X daily along with a prescription muscle relaxer to manage my pain. I began taking your Joint Mints approximately three months ago. I have NOT taken vicodin since that time. I am happy that I am no longer in need of a taking a prescription narcotic drug. Thank you very much.
I have a lot of arthritis related pain (like every old nurse) and I’ve suffered from fibromyalgia for the last few years – so I just have a lot of general aches and pains. I started using Joint Mints and within a couple days I could feel it start to relieve all my pain … even noticing that I was walking faster than usual. Now I’m recommending Joint Mints to my friends.
Thank you again. I do believe you are just beginning and onto to a huge concept here. It is “all about inflammation.”
Dear Doctor Steve;
I have had osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia for 6 years. The arthritis is really bad in my knees, ankles and one hip. And since I got in a car accident 5 years ago I have had neck injuries and have not been able to turn my head ever without it causing pain. I’ve been in a lot of pain every day for all this time and have tried many pain relievers, seen doctors and chiropractors but nothing has helped much, or has only helped a little for a short time. I have been on medication for fibro and that has helped some but I still had daily aches and pains. Some from arthritis, some from my injury and some from fibro.
I started taking Joint Mints about 5 weeks ago because my friend told me about it. After a few days I could feel a real improvement and after a few weeks almost all my pain was gone, just gone! Now I can turn my head without pain. My arthritis is gone and my fibro is also gone (I am still on lyrica for that, but Joint Mints had definitely improved the results.)
I take it twice a day and it never fails me. Joint Mints gave me back control of my body. I control my movements now. The stiff, painful aches no longer dictate my every move.
This is the first Christmas that I think I’ll really enjoy in the last 6 years.
So far from my experience, I have seen a reduction in the amount of ongoing day to day pain I have in an arthritic knee, both at rest as well as while moving/working out.
I believe that the Joint Mints treatment for arthritis pain is working well. The areas I have had the most difficulty and pain from are, my wrists, thumbs, fingers, right elbow, and sciatica in the right leg. All of these have stopped aching, except for the fingers (which may have a different problem with their stiffness).
In my opinion, Joint Mints is a wonderful product.
About 6 years ago I was diagnosed with Sjogren’s and Fibromyalgia. Sjogren’s is an auto-immune syndrome that attacks the moisture-producing glands, and Fibromyalgia is widespread pain. Both can cause debilitating fatigue. Rather than bore everyone with all of my annoying symptoms, suffice it to say that both syndromes have robbed me of my sleep, my energy, my good nature, and the pain was pretty consuming, particularly the intense joint pain that started up about two years ago. Like I didn’t have enough to worry about, for the first time in my life I started gaining weight, and not just a few pounds… 30 pounds in about 2 years.
Since I’m trying to live a chemical-free life as much as possible, I felt Joint Mints was worth a try because it’s completely natural. When I started taking Joint Mints, I noticed an improvement in my energy level within the first week or two, which ultimately allowed me to move more during the day, and consequently I started losing weight.
I also noticed an overall reduction in joint pain… very subtle changes at first and then you suddenly look back after a couple weeks and realize that you don’t hurt all over anymore. As a bonus, the lemon in Joint Mints seems to help invigorate my saliva glands, which reduces my Sjogren’s symptoms.
Taking Joint Mints had positive results for me, so I would highly recommend Joint Mints to anyone else.
I am very aware of when I don’t take the lozenges as directed. This product has made a huge difference in my life and I am incredibly thankful that I have the opportunity to use it
The knee pain I had been experiencing (osteoarthritis) is nearly gone. I feel some pain when I go up stairs in the knee, but it is almost gone completely. My foot/ankle was feeling much better, but I had a shock treatment therapy at PT trying to retrain neuromuscular activity in the calf, and a consequence of that was a bad flare up in the ankle/foot. I am hoping that the use of the Joint Mints will reduce the flare up pain over the next week, just like it did the first 10 days.
For the past 21 days I have been faithful in taking Joint Mints and I have felt better. My pain level has decreased and I have a more active life.
I have pain in my right ulnar collateral ligament and my left anterior cruciate ligament (best guesses) from playing tennis. The pain has been significantly decreased by Joint Mints.
With Joint Mints the swelling in my right hand is down considerably. I am moving around more quickly, now. If I sleep in the same position for too long, my no longer hurt so bad they wake me up. If I get a good night’s sleep, there are fewer problems during the day. I am able to sit longer and have less pain when I get up. Hand exercises are easier to do now and that makes working with them much easier, too.
Joint Mints is the most effective treatment for joint pain I have ever tried.
Even though I am aware of the pain in my hip always, now it is not stopping me from doing my regular chores. I get tired easily and when the pain gets worse, I just sit for a little while and get up and go again. I know there has been a difference and I am pleased. I will continue using Joint Mints and would love to have the pain go away all the time. Thanks!
Joint Mints has been a life changing experience for me.
I do not have any more pain . I can press hard on my thumb, and on my wrists. My right wrist was so bad, before starting to take Joint Mints, that even touching the hairs on my wrist caused pain. I have a feeling of more energy, even though I’m not getting enough sleeping time with so much going on right now. I definitely feel that Joint Mints is an excellent treatment.
My knee is almost 100% better. I had been diagnosed with patella-femoral dysfunction in the knee. I still have some tendon pain in my feet, but I also have increased the distance I walk on it and stand on it substantially. So I have changed my lifestyle dramatically as a result of Joint Mints.
I was taking pain killers daily. Now I am only using prescription pain killers a couple of times a week.
I have been very pleased with the gradual lessening of pain in my left knee since I started taking Joint Mints. I really didn’t expect significant results. After two surgical procedures I’ve lived with constant pain for years. I had become accustomed to taking 800 milligrams of ibuprofen at least once a day, even when I hadn’t been active or done anything to aggravate my knee. Now the pain is gone! I’m able to take my dogs for long walks. I can sit through a movie without needing to extend my leg and massage my knee. And best of all, I can fall asleep without knee pain keeping me awake and I actually sleep through the night.
I’ve had rheumatoid arthritis with severe pain in many joints for the past six years. I feel much better since I started using Joint Mints. My pain is now mild at most times and before it was always severe. I have noticed the biggest change in the mornings because its much easier for me to get up and get going. Thank you.
Every time I wake up in the morning I have this pain on my left foot. They said it is Achilles arthritis. And then, one of my relatives told me to use “Joint Mints.” After taking Joint Mints for two days the pain was lessened and I can stand and walk as if nothing happened. Joint Mints really work.
I have been taking Joint Mints for my chronic back pain for two months and have noticed a considerable reduction in pain. I find that one Joint Mints tablet daily combined with my physical therapy, which includes light stretching exercises, is really effective.
I’ve had arthritic joints since my early 20′s because of a chronic condition. I’ve dealt with the pain & discomfort trying every over the counter anti-inflammatory. I hate medication. I tried Joint Mints because I figured it couldn’t hurt and I’m always open to a natural remedy. I’ve used them as needed and I was so impressed with the results, I asked my mother if she’d like to try it. Within just 2 days of her using them, taking just 3 of the tasty lozenges, the swelling has reduced so much that her wedding ring fits past the 2nd knuckle and she hadn’t worn her band in more than a year!
I’m glad I found Joint Mints, I’ve seen a major improvement in my joints and I’m not worried about the side effects of ibuprofen on my vocal chords or acetaminophen damaging my liver. Thanks so much Doctor Steve.
Hi Dr Steve,
This is my testimony. I have arthritis in my hip and pain in my neck. I have had the pain in my neck for 3 years starting after an operation on my shoulder. The arthritis in my hip was getting worse for years and was getting really bad.
I have taken Joint Mints as directed 2 a day for one week. After one week pain was minimized. Now for me one a day is sufficient. I am really grateful because I have tried other medications and nothing has helped. Thank you Dr Roberts for your expertise in this great medication. To any one out there who has pain all I can say is give Joint Mints a try you can’t go wrong. Thanks.
With using Joint Mints I went from chronic pain in a lot of places to only 2 types of pain: heel pain first thing in the morning or after sitting a while – and the degree of that pain when it does happen is much improved. What normally would have taken 6 weeks to get rid of took about 3 days. The heel pain in the morning is still present, but every so slight for a few steps and then it is gone. The leg pain yesterday was in the lower leg after much walking and activity all day long. It was gone when I woke up today. (I’m not so sure its not muscles that are out of shape being used again.)
I have arthritis in just one knee, and generally it only flares up about once every third day of so. The problem is, my wife and I really enjoy ballroom dancing, but for the past several years every time we go dancing I have to sit down after only a short while – the knee pain flares up. That puts a damper on things, so we had all but stopped our dancing.
Six weeks ago I tried your “Joint Mints”. The next time my knee pain flared I took one and within a few minutes the pain was gone. That was great of course, but what really surprised me was that the pain didn’t come back for almost two weeks! Since then, whenever the pain comes back, I just take one Joint Mint and it’s gone again for at least a week. The best part is, we’re dancing again!
So far, Joint Mints seems to be doing a wonderful job! I am a hydrocephalus survivor (born April 1963, hydrocephalus did not make itself known until 3 months later.) I get headaches that are sometimes incredibly severe. I also have tendonitis and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Using just one Joint Mint a day, I noticed significant improvement in my tendonitis after just three days, with rapid improvement in other inflammation-based problems as well. Very good indeed.
I’ve now been on Joint Mints for a couple weeks and I’m seeing continued improvement in my tendonitis and with other problems. Even my Carpal Tunnel Syndrome hasn’t flared recently, despite a great deal of typing. (For which I thank you, and give God the glory for you having discovered this medication!)
I am quite satisfied with Joint Mints. I know that I have reduced taking OTC pain relief by at least 90%. I am sure the Joint Mints are responsible for increased flexibility and less pain.
Yes, Yes, Thank you so much! I had immediate improvement and within 2 days back to being able to do what I did while on Joint Mints before and no more naps!!!!!! God bless you for this product! YOU HAVE REALLY STUMBLED ON TO SOMETHING THAT ALTHOUGH THE PAIN ISN’T GONE COMPLETELY IT IS MOSTLY BACKGROUND AND TOLERABLE instead of at the forefront of your life and the fatigue has improved beyond belief. I sleep better and don’t fall asleep in the middle of the day. Please use this as a testimonial of the great product you have created. I also referred it to my cousin who also suffers with Fibro but haven’t heard if she has tried it yet. I hope she does asap so she can see how much better her life can be!!!!
SINCERELY, AND WITH DEEP APPRECIATION
Two months have passed since Joint Mints came into my life. The first 6 weeks I was only taking two a day and responses were fairly good. Then I had one of the worst fibro flares I’ve ever experienced. I finally wrote Dr. Roberts an email out of desperation. The advice was to move to 3 a day. On the 3 a day even the pain in my foot from an irreversible auto injury is minimal. That is something I’ve been told I would never experience.
Overall my experience with Joint Mints has been very good. I feel like I have my life back. Also, I have found that most of the time I only need to use one Joint Mint each day, using more when I have a flare, very infrequent now.
It will be interesting to see the improvements after 6 months of use. Thanks again Dr Roberts for giving me my life back. Before you introduced me to Joint Mints, life was full of pain and hopeless. Now I’m even considering having one more child (My fiancée’s first) thanks to the fact that I’m feeling so much better. However we are working right now to improve my overall health first.
When I first heard of Joint Mints about 6 or 8 weeks ago I was skeptical. I’ve tried many things for my fibro and everything failed. I had fibro so bad that I hurt all the time, my mobility was extremely limited, I had constant nerve pain, and I had no energy at all. I wasn’t sleeping well and I wasn’t able to play with my daughter very often. My quality of life sucked. I felt like I was dying from the inside out. I felt helpless.
I got my first shipment of Joint Mints and started it right off. At first I noticed no improvements. By the end of the second week, I noticed I had cut way down on all pain killers. I have more energy, fewer headaches, and I’m in a better mood. I’m able to go out walking more and play with my daughter more.
My mobility is and always will be an issue due to injuries from a car accident. However, I have less nerve pain and I am walking with less pain. I’ve not used a cane in almost 3 weeks. By the end of the third week I’ve noticed I’m able to sleep without taking anything for the first time in my life! I’m waking up a little easier as well. Lol, you still don’t want to know me before I’ve had a cup of coffee though! I laugh more and smile more, as I’m hurting less and less. Now I’m starting to work on rebuilding my strength.
Thank you for giving me my life back, Dr Roberts! This stuff WORKS!
I began using Joint Mints about 6 months ago when I saw a post about it on an EDS board [Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.] Being in chronic pain for five years due to the severe joint pain of EDS, I have tried everything that has hit the market (Western and Eastern Medicines). So, trying Joint Mints was a no brainer!!
It has been easy to use, even though my stomach is very sensitive. Joint Mints have given my Immune system support with all the antioxidant and anti inflammatory protection. I have had excellent pain relief and energy boosting results after trying Joint Mints for about two weeks.
It has been years since I could exercise and still have the energy to finish the day out with out lying in bed. I used to have to plan my day around the house, because I never knew when my energy would be gone. Now, I am able to spend all day with my children and still have enough energy to spend the evenings with my husband. Disneyland, my favorite place to go, I had to rent a wheelchair to get around. Now, I can spend four hours there on my feet. Each day, I am getting stronger and stronger from Joint Mints! We all know that movement is life and EDSer have to make the muscles strong! I am so blessed that I have had the chance to take Joint Mints. I will never go without it!
Joint pain frequency and severity are both very much less since starting Joint Mints, as well as shoulder/neck pain (I am very happy about this)!!! Overall, considering I have fibro AND MS, I am pleased with the results.
I’ve had fibromyalgia for the past three years. During that time I’ve tried damn near every drug on the U.S. market with no success. None of them even touched the pain, the horrible sleep, the fatigue, the splitting headaches, the brain fog, or the weakness in the mornings. Well, except Cymbalta, but the horrible reaction it had with my Manic Depressive brain kind of outweighed the little good it did.
I was quite skeptical on whether or not this, Joint Mints, would work, but what did I have to lose, really? I started taking Joint Mints twice a day about seven weeks ago, and I’ve tried keeping a diary to note changes. I was in the middle of a bad back flare when I started taking Joint Mints, but almost right away within the first few days felt my pain lessen to where it wasn’t much. During the first week I didn’t notice any change in my sleep, fatigue and concentration, but not being in anywhere near as much joint pain was enough for me.
By about the third week I would say I started noticing a big improvement in my fatigue and concentration. The pain relief was rather dramatic, but these other symptoms went away gradually so it’s hard to connect them with a certain date. I was still having trouble with my sleep, but I was doing really, really well by the third week. I moved into a new apartment which involved a lot of heavy work. That was like a test for me and I was really surprised to find just how well Joint Mints can work during the move: I was hardly in any pain at the end of the day! And then by about at week five I started noticing a change in my sleeping, finally! Getting good sleep is AWESOME!!
I’ve been taking Joint Mints for nearly two full months now, and I have to say, I’m stunned that it’s still working. My metabolism for medication, homeopathic or chemical, is insane. Something works for a few weeks, then never works again, and it’s not because I abuse whatever I’ve been taking. But, Joint Mints still works for me, and I couldn’t be more satisfied with the result. Thank you, kiitos, grazie, arigato, tack, marci!
I have been diagnosed with Mastocytosis and Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS), a rare inheritable connective tissue disorder. I have both classical and hypermobile types of EDS. I was first diagnosed with fibromyalgia in my 20s, but that was before they knew it was EDS. A lot of us with EDS have multiple diagnoses, and we often have a lot of pain and a lot of fatigue. I also have frequent headaches, and I have a lot of neck and back pain. I have also been diagnosed with degenerative disc disease of the spine.
After about four days using Joint Mints I felt a big change in the amount of energy I had. I also began to notice some reduction in pain. I had less pain in my small joints to start with. The pain in my large joints continued for some time. After about a month of taking Joint Mints the pain in my small joints was much, much better and I had less pain in the larger joints, but those continued to give me a bit of trouble.
I have now been taking Joint Mints for about two months and I have noticed a marked difference in the joint pain, back pain and neck pain. I take one to two tablets of Joint Mints daily. After taking Joint Mints I notice a significant increase in my energy level.
I kinda lost hope with Dr’s always wanting to shove synthetic drugs at people to take instead of taking something natural for the body. As it states in our Good “Truth” book, there is nothing ever lost, but one can gain the natural effects and reap the benefits.
Dr.’s say do not take anything Natural with the Mastocytosis, well I can tell you that is just untrue for some people… Some nutrients that “God” put on this earth our body needs. And we need to see that our body is given these nutrients because if not bodies will start to fail us ..
Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground everything that has the breath of life in it I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.
Thank You Dr. Roberts for caring enough about people. I appreciate it….
I am now 55 years old and was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia when I was 50. I have had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome since I was 45 and for the last three years have dealt with osteoarthritis and constant joint pain and back pain.
I have always been a very active person who exercised regularly and loved activities such as gardening, biking, walking and working on home improvement projects. Since experiencing menopause in my late 40′s, I have felt a gradual decline in my ability to do the physical things that I love. For awhile, I thought it was hormonal and that this is what happens when you go through menopause along with the insomnia, hot flashes, fatigue, brain fog, depression and body aches.
I have been to numerous doctors (neurologist, rheumatologist, OB/GYN, and internists) trying to deal with each of these issues separately. I have taken massive doses of ibuprofen for pain relief as well as Ambien to be able to sleep at night. The last two years have been particularly difficult as the pain from fibromyalgia has been so chronic, there are days when I cannot move without wincing from pain. I work full-time in an office and sitting for eight hours a day with pain so bad in my torso it feels like I have been in a car accident, it is all I can do to get through the day. If I do ANYTHING physical like lifting or cleaning my house, I experience unbelievable pain for the next 2-3 days.
Being a self-advocate for finding some answers to this debilitating disease, I received from a relative an email with a link to Joint Mints.
It took about a week of figuring out how much I needed to take in the beginning, but much to my amazement, Joint Mints actually worked to relieve a lot of the severe joint pain and body aches! I now take one Joint Mints tablet a day and have much less pain due to fibromyalgia. I now have only mild joint pain, whereas I used to have daily severe pain. I also have a lot more energy and a lot less fatigue. Finally, I’ve noticed a big improvement in my sleep since starting Joint Mints.
The best part is that Joint Mints comes from natural ingredients and I don’t feel like I putting foreign substances and/or narcotics into my body. Joint Mints is the best remedy I have found yet for my pain and has given me a much more normal life I have not felt for years.
Thank you, Dr. Steve!
As a long time sufferer of Fibromyalgia Joint Mints has dramatically changed my life. After about 3 weeks of taking 2 per day I have decreased the amt pain medication that I was taking dramatically. Since Joint Mints is all natural its a much better alternative that all the meds that I was on. My fog has improved which in turn has made my work as a book keeper a much easier task to do. I’m sleeping for 8 hours straight now, which is something I haven’t been able to do for years. I have also been able to begin exercising again which in turn has allowed me to lose 8 lbs. I highly recommend Joint Mints and will continue to take it myself hoping that someday it will be the only thing I will have to take everyday.
After using Joint Mints for 2 months my joint pain is very much improved. It has not only helped with my joint pain but my sleeping problems that I had in the past are gone. I no longer have to take any type of sleep medication as I did in the past. I’ve also found that my fatigue is much improved.
I am very happy with the results so far with Joint Mints. At first, I worried that I might be experiencing a placebo effect. I really didn’t want to talk with anyone about how Joint Mints was working; it was such a dramatic improvement and I didn’t want to “jinx” it in any way! But at this point I am confident and feel that I can rely on Joint Mints ongoing effects. Joint Mints has helped with both my all over joint pain and the pain I have specific to my neck/jaw and arm, which is due to spinal problems. My sleep has improved as well; the quality of rest is better and I wake with more energy than I used to.
Due to many food allergy and stomach issues, I am unable to take many suggested supplements, but Joint Mints has always been well tolerated by me. In fact, I think it helps to settle my stomach overall; an added bonus. The best thing about Joint Mints is the improvement in overall widespread pain; improvement there seems to have had a domino effect so that things like my energy level, anxiety, depression and sleep quality have improved.
In addition to Fibro, I have ME/CFS, and prior to Joint Mints spent many days a week either in bed or on the couch. Even the smallest activity was exhausting.
I used to train dogs, and since taking Joint Mints I have taken on a new client, a rambunctious 9 month old, 80 pound lab puppy. This is in addition to training my own service dog towards the goal of certification. Prior to Joint Mints, I would NEVER have attempted this. Since taking Joint Mints, I have been able to get my own dog certified as a therapy dog, which required attending classes, additional training time, and prepping for the test. Without Joint Mints I know this never would have come to pass. I would not have had the energy, or been able to focus clearly enough to accomplish the class, training and testing. Prior to taking Joint Mints, I would have to shower, then sit down and rest, then continue getting ready, putting on my makeup, etc. Now I can shower, put my makeup on, dry my hair and get dressed, no problem! I still have times when I need to rest; especially if I have attempted to do too much in one day. But on the whole, my activity level has dramatically increased because I don’t hurt as much, and I’m not as exhausted over every little thing.
Joint Mints has provided me with relief that other drugs cannot. It is a natural way to help control the everyday symptoms of fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis. Because I am sensitive to so many medications, it is nice to find help in the form of something natural. Now I can sleep through the night, which is something I hadn’t done in about 20 years. I don’t have the widespread joint pain and muscle pain that plagued me for years.
Because of Joint Mints my husband was able to hug me tight for the first time ever!
At first I was skeptical, but now I am a believer! I will recommend Joint Mints to everyone.
I think Joint Mints is a unique and well made product. The fact that an M.D. would have enough concern about people with joint pain to tailor a product for their treatment is an amazing thing. I love that Joint Mints is all natural. Personally, I find that Joint Mints is much better than any prescription drug. Thank you, Dr. Roberts!
After a week in on Joint Mints, I started to feel relief from my constant pain. I was actually able to walk the dog a short distance. Something that I have not been able to do for a long time due to severe joint pain in my knees and hips. While I have not been able to walk a long way, it is nice to now be able to walk my dog again (something my dog is grateful for as well)! I want to thank Dr Roberts and Joint Mints for giving me a little more of my life back.
Fibromyalgia has not been a debilitating part of my life for nearly as long as some of my fellow warriors. I can only imagine their frustration and suffering as I struggle to deal with my own. When after “only” my second Rheumatologist told me that there was nothing more she could do for me since Cymbalta created life-threatening side effects in my body, I felt totally abandoned by the conventional medical community.
After a two to three year gradual build of symptoms that seemed unrelated, Fibromyalgia decided it was time to take me to my knees, and I have been struggling for answers and survival for the past six months. I cannot fathom the struggles those have endured for much longer than I.
So it was suggested that I take a more natural route, and look at Joint Mints. Here I am nearly 30 days later, and there have been improvements. Some more significant than others. The fatigue has lifted. I still tire easily, and must pace myself. But I do not feel debilitated by it. The brain fog which depressed me the most has also lifted with only a few misty moments here and there. The pain flares are there, but fewer and further between. The severity of joint pain has greatly lessened. I have felt so much better that I have to remind myself that even with feeling almost “normal” to a degree, I still have to pace myself, and manage my stress levels.
My nephew, who lives with me, recently looked at me and said, “It’s good to have you back!” That meant the world to me.
I feel more energized, I am able to get out more often ( which also helps with my Depression.) I have much less joint pain than before (so now I can spend more time with my 4 boys.) I am able to keep my house clean most of the time since I have more good days than bad. This dose not seem to take it all away but definitely makes everything much easier to deal with. I no longer sit and cry in pain or about how I can’t do anything (cause I usually can.)
Joint Mints has helped me with my stiffness and the joint pain from my Fibromyalgia. I have been waking up a lot less stiff since using it. Joint Mints has also helped me sleep better. There are more day’s that I have been getting a solid sleep. I will continue taking Joint Mints as long as I continue to get any type of relief. Less stiffness, pain and more sleep is a big help to anyone suffering with Fibromyalgia. Thank You
I feel Joint Mints has helped me with my symptom’s of Fibromyalgia. My sleep has improved a great deal. I have not felt as fatigued as I did before using Joint Mints. Joint Mints has helped with the daily Fibromyalgia all-over pain and joint pain. I personally suffer from daily chronic back pain and the Joint Mints has helped me with that pain too.
After a short time taking Joint Mints, I noticed my knee pain was much less and I was sleeping better. I had also regained some stamina.
Last week was 4th of July. I did more than I normally do. I was able to volunteer 2 hours at a non profit tent then go to a 4th cookout that lasted till 9PM. I was active for 12 hours on the 4th. My normal routine I am only up for a couple of hours before I have to lay back down. I give Joint Mints the credit for my being able to do what I did, although I did pay for overdoing it the rest of the week. I was able to actually contribute at least a little again. This week I have stayed up all day for 2 days. I feel the exhaustion coming on, but it gives me hope that there is a treatment that will get me back to the work force someday.
I’ve noticed the Trigeminal Neuralgia pain is not as bad. I’m still having pain but it is not as severe and very bearable. There are fewer instances of shocking pain and less of the all over constant pain. Joint pain is also doing better.
My osteoarthritis had significantly altered my ability to participate in strength training activities the last three years. I had reduced the types of exercises and the intensity of my workouts due to the increased and lasting effects cause my heavy lifting. Since I started taking Joint Mints, I have returned to my old routine without suffering any long-term pain. I may have some moderate pain within the first 4-6 hrs but it has not hampered my sleeping or increased the following day. I always tried to keep my activity level fairly high and did not allow my condition to effect what I did but now I can say I am as active as I want to be without any additional pain or discomfort. At age 50, I have returned to heavy days (over 300 on the flat bench and 275 on pull downs) without difficulty. I am satisfied with the product and have started to recommend it to my friends. I am a believer. Thanks Dr. Roberts!
Joint Mints is much much better than anything else I’ve tried!
I believe Joint Mints did everything they said it would do and then some! In my personal experience this homeopathic remedy is a natural solution to enable the body to do what it was designed to do – heal itself. I feel great! Dr. Roberts delivers a blessing to the world with Joint Mints! Thank you!”
I have been using Joint Mints daily and am happy to report that I no longer have any joint pain. I started out very cynical and I have had pain in my hip forever but I am thrilled at no more pain since using your lozenges.
Hello Doctor Steve:
I suffered with fibromyalgia for the past more than eight years; my doctor prescribed various medications which helped only minimally. Immediately after beginning to take Joint Mints (within 1-2 days) I noticed I no longer had the over-all pain, joint pain and the burning and painful skin I had been experiencing. Within a few days I realized the IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) was almost entirely gone. Also, I no longer had a constant feeling of fatigue, and, miracle of miracles, I was able to go to sleep at night without taking any kind of a sleep-aid!
After having taken Joint Mints for about three months, I went off of it for 2-3 days as an experiment. I could tell a (painful) difference the first day; the symptoms all returned: IBS, over-all pain, joint pain, burning and prickly skin sensations, and fatigue. When I resumed taking Joint Mints, the symptoms disappeared. All this, and no side effects! Well, there is one ‘side effect’ – I’ve lost 10 pounds since starting Joint Mints!
I am no longer taking any prescription medication for fibromyalgia, which was costly, did little to diminish the symptoms, and resulted in unpleasant side effects. Joint Mints has wonderfully improved my health and my life! Thank You!
All in all I feel that Joint Mints has been very effective on my symptoms of fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. Within 10 days of starting Joint Mints I could feel more energy, the joint pain was significantly less and the overall pain was not as widespread. However, I continued to have sleep issues for the entire first month.
During the second month my pain and fatigue were much further reduced. Even my sleep improved quite a bit.
Thank you so much Dr. Steve!
Thanks to Joint Mints I will be starting school in two days. I am now a member of a gym (and I’ve lost 6 pounds!!) both things I thought that would never happen, Thank you Joint Mints!
Dear Dr. Steve;
Here is my testimonial. When I first wrote to you I felt like a fish swimming in a fishbowl, all alone with my EDS [Ehlers Danlos Syndrome] pain and chronic illness. I was ready to try anything and at the point of giving up.
When I first wrote to you the worst pain was in my lower back and my left knee and horrible pain in my neck. I could not stand up straight or move without pain radiating down my left leg and spasms in my back. I had been to PT for the last year with little help as my joints are lax and I can not do many of the exercises without popping.
Despite all the meds and every therapy I remained in extreme pain. I was so tired of the extreme pain that I keep myself isolated at home much of the time. I have a reacher, a walker, and a wheelchair but refuse to get in the chair as I don’t want to lose my mobility.
I have had every kind of “-ologist” there is. I was tired of doctors and felt hopeless. Most of my doctors don’t know much about EDS and can only treat my symptoms, as surgery is not an option for me.
When I saw your site and read the testimonials I wrote you on facebook and you sent me Joint Mints. After using Joint Mints for 4 days the neck pain was GONE! I definitely had more energy. My back pain was better but not gone and my left knee with the torn meniscus would still hurt, but only if I moved it in a certain way.
I felt much better overall and the best part was that my neck felt normal for the first time in 5 years! I had been using narcotics with no relief for almost five years and after just two days of Joint Mints I quit the narcotics. That is the greatest relief as I was so tired of feeling drugged.
Thanks a million! I am loving the pain free neck and am able to bend knee easier. And thank you for your dedication to pain relief with a non-addictive medication. I am very grateful to have an alternative to narcotics which I hated because of the side-effects. I believe that God sent you to me through FB.
I have to say I was skeptical at the start of taking Joint Mints and was proved wrong. It does work and I think had I been taking them for more than two months I would now have even more improvement to report. There isn’t anything in them out of the ordinary. Maybe it’s the combination of ingredients all together that makes them work but whatever the reason I felt better and slept better without fail and for that reason alone I was thankful for them. All symptoms improved, some more than others but I think with more time they will improve too.
I was skeptical at first when I was told about Joint Mints and its potential. Having fibromyalgia, arthritis, fatigue and other problems for almost a decade made me very wary about ANY product that claimed to help with my pain and fatigue. Initially I thought Joint Mints would do nothing for my symptoms like almost everything else. Was I wrong!
By the time I finished the first month, I realized how much I had improved. My joint pain had lessened, the fatigue wasn’t as bad, and I was able to leave the house! I did so much I couldn’t believe it! I actually improved so much that even others noticed. This is a great product that I will recommend to everyone I know. If you’re going to try anything, try Joint Mints first! You will feel the difference!
I had very bad joint pain and because of that my doctor ran a Lupus test and it came back with a reading of 1/670 so I might have Lupus but I think I also have rheumatoid arthritis since I think my symptoms point more towards that.
I didn’t want to do any of the conventional therapy and wanted to try to take care of it with natural products so decided to try Joint Mints.
After two weeks I still have significant pain in my right shoulder and left thumb (which are my worst areas), but the pain in my hips and my knees and my left shoulder are easing up nicely. I can stand up much easier than when I first started with the Joint Mints. I am sleeping better because the pain when I move at night is much less so it doesn’t wake me up like it used to. I am very pleased with the results and excited about what the future looks like with this product.
Dear Doctor Steve;
I have now been taking Joint Mints for about five weeks. As for what Joint Mints has done for me – I have been thinking about this and without making myself sound like a medical wreck, I will have to list what I believe it has done for me to this point.
First, the pain in my knees is almost entirely gone. My knees have bothered me for years and were getting quite painful, that’s osteoarthritis.
Another thing, my right foot has been killing me for years and the pain on that has even eased up a little bit, especially the large cyst on it that is very painful.
I also have a muscle in my neck that has been very painful for months now and when I take the Joint Mints that pain also disappears.
I noticed a few days into this my gum area that was always sensitive was no longer painful. (I had a root canal a few years back and that area has been very sensitive ever since). It was to the point where just putting a small amount of pressure on the gum was very painful and now I have no pain. That’s very nice. So because of Joint Mints I can now chew normally again.
I guess in a nutshell, Joint Mints has allowed me to feel normal again. It is so nice to wake up and not feel physically challenged. The energy is incredible. It is amazing how pain can really drain the energy levels.
I guess bottom line is, I was so very sick and tired of being sick and tired, and all the pain. Joint Mints has really helped me to feel normal again. I can’t bear to think of living without it.
Dear Dr. Steve;
This is my update on my experience with Joint Mints.
I started using Joint Mints because I have bad fibromyalgia and have had constant pain for over 15 years, starting in 1993. For the first 3 years I was home bound, and my life since that time has been constantly limited by chronic, daily pain. It’s been a long time of suffering. Before starting Joint Mints I was also getting 2-4 migraines per month and had sciatica. The sciatica is better but I still need a forearm crutch for balance.
I’ve been using Joint Mints for about 7 weeks. The biggest change is that my fibromyalgia pain is almost gone. That’s how Joint Mints has really changed my life.
Normal aches & pains were also being diminished by that time. After 2 weeks the effect was not super dramatic on my fibromyalgia but I was able to make a trip to New Orleans for a few weeks and I didn’t need a week to recover from driving. Now, after 7 weeks on Joint Mints I’ve recently made a couple 8 hour drives. I just couldn’t have done this without Joint Mints, because of the pain and the extra pain it would cause. Now I’ve been living out of a suitcase for the past few weeks and planning more travel for the new year. Wouldn’t have considered this much travel 3 months ago. The pain from the trip would have me bedridden for a week (at least) now I take a day to recover & I’m up & going again.
I still have some aches and pains but my life is much more normal than before. I have a lot of my freedom back and I feel I just keep getting better. I have recommended Joint Mints to friends and relatives who suffer with pain, especially with fibromyalgia and arthritis. Joint Mints work. THANK YOU SO MUCH.
Dear Dr. Steve,
I just wanted to say that after trying Joint Mints for the last month I have had an increase in stamina and energy that seemed impossible for the last 15 years when I was diagnosed with what the Rheumatologist called “old fashioned” Rheumatism. Which he explained was also called myositis, now most often called Fibromyalgia. Also my osteoarthritis of my left knee and hips is greatly improved and my diabetic neuropathy pain is slowly getting better. The neuropathic pain is now the most bothersome, but I have not had the stabbing pain that I would frequently get with the neuropathy that actually prevented me from sleeping since I started Joint Mints. So, that is an improvement. I still have a good bit of pins and needles type neuropathy pain.
Being a nurse who mostly worked steady night shift, I blamed my aches and pains on a lack of proper sleep and Juvenile Diabetes. I could not sleep more than 2 hours in a row without getting up and walking the floor from leg, foot pain, and all over tenderness, stiffness, and soreness. I continued to work and raise two small kids like this.
It’s great to finally be able to get though the day without me having to lay down and nap on the couch at least 2-3 times in a day. I’ve been able to do more house work than I usually was able to before hand and noticed a clearer more alert and energized feeling than I’ve had since before I developed the fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis.
I will continue to use Joint Mints as long as possible because it’s made me more productive and decreased my pain to the point that I’m able to once again have a feeling of relief. I want to get out of bed in the morning instead of being afraid to wake up to another day of fatigue, pain and stiffness and what I used to call a “lack of life” because I just wasn’t my usual cheery and optimistic self.
I still have an occasional off day but the overall improvements that I’ve noted are something that I want to keep. THANK YOU for your hard work and dedication to helping people like me.
After 24 days on Joint Mints, I have noticed a big improvement in the large joints. I have had an improvement in my hands and feet but am hoping they will improve more with time. I was waking up at night with my joints hurting and needing to move but am now sleeping through the night.
I would recommend anyone with rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, or any connective tissue disease. After using Joint Mints for 2 months my pain and other symptoms are very much improved. It has not only helped with my joint pain but also my sleeping problems that I had in the past are gone. I no longer have to take any type of sleep medication as I did in the past. I’ve also found that my fatigue and fog is much improved. I able to think more clearly and able to do things without a list as I had to in the past. My anxiety has also improved even though I’ve had several very stressful events that have took place in the last two months. All in all, Joint Mints has helped me in more ways than I can list here and I highly recommend it as a helpful treatment.
I’m 63 years old and have had hip and knee pain associated with osteoarthritis for at least 6 years. Joint Mints came to my attention because my wife, who has fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, tried it and it helped her a lot.
I’ve always doubted the usefulness of vitamins, supplements, etc. and expressed my doubts to Dr. Roberts. Well, after just 10 days on Joint Mints (2 per day) my pain when walking and sitting was all but gone! This is the first time in years that I’ve been pain free… If I felt any better I’d start running again! I really can’t say enough positive things a bout Joint Mints. I’m glad I gave it a try.
I have a fragmented disc at l4-l5 that causes nerve pain down my right leg and numbness down my left leg. I also have arthritis pain in my hip and left knee. I work retail and am on my feet on cement floors, so I deal with this foot and leg pain every day. Since starting Joint Mints I am able to get through the day without all this pain. I feel better than I have in 5 yrs.
It took only 4 or 5 days and I noticed a difference in how I felt at the end of my work day. I usually hurt too bad to do anything but sit after work, but after starting Joint Mints I was able to come home and cook dinner, do dishes, ect. You know how tiring being in pain is. Well Joint Mints made such a difference I don’t even need those power naps. Now I am able to spend quality time with my Grandson that I raise.
I have been able to have such a better life with your product. You see I take Norco (loratab) 10 mg 3 x’s a day have for 5 yrs. Now some days I only take 1/2 a tablet! The doctor explained that that is my body’s addiction to the narcotic. I hate that thought and have great hope that I will soon have days that I don’t have to take any.
I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for my life. Thank you for the work you are doing that is helping so many people. May God Bless you and yours.
I have Sjogren’s, Lupus, Fibromyalgia & Reynaud’s. When I first contacted you I was desperate for relief. My pains were almost completely gone after one month of using Joint Mints, and only came back (rather quickly) in a very “muted” state after I stopped using it. Meaning to say, that I know they are there but it doesn’t dominate my life anymore. I think by using a complete month two and maybe a month three, it would do the trick. Then only need to use when in a severe flare up. Or as needed. On estimation of my percentage of pain, from beginning to now – less than 10%. I am VERY happy right now, with my lack of joint pain.
Please, please, please do not give up on your product. You have a winner and there are so many of us out here that need you and your product. We absolutely think you have something great for us (people with chronic pain) and are excited for you with the product.
Since starting Joint Mints my overall body pain and fatigue are much better. I don’t have as much rib pain or knee pain. I do also have Peripheral Neuropathy in my feet and have been having quite a bit of pain from that. I am seeing an improvement with Joint Mints and definitely want to keep taking it to see if it helps even more. Just having relief from the rib pain is worth taking Joint Mints. That pain would hit almost every day and made it very difficult to breathe and do anything. I am a bit more active than before and am able to drop off to sleep easier.
I do think that Joint Mints has helped me. I had a knee injury on May 18th that I think has not allowed me to give a true report on how Joint Mints has helped. I also had an appointment with a rheumatologist on June 15th. I am now waiting for the results of blood work and x-rays to determine what type of arthritis I have. The Dr. was very concerned about the condition of my feet, ankles, and hands. I showed her my Joint Mints and she said that she saw no reason for me not to continue using it if I thought that it helped. I am sorry that my injury and my finally seeing a rheumatologist has interfered with my ability to give a better report but I want to say that I am thankful for your help.
I have an 18 year old daughter and for the last 3 years have been taking her back and forth to the doctor’s for random, severe pain in her knees, shoulders, hips, back, and neck. We have done all kinds of tests, tried all kinds of drugs from Lyrica to Tylenol with Codeine. The doctor will not refer us to a specialist so on my own we have been searching the internet and getting all kinds of information.
She came across Joint Mints and within a few days noticed a big difference in the frequency and severity of the pain that she has suffered with until now. She has also had to cut out a lot of things from her diet and started walking 4 miles at least 5 days a week. This combination of the Joint Mints, diet and exercise gives her the most relief from pain that she has had in a long time.
She really hates taking prescription drugs because of all the horrible side effects, so we had been searching for a more natural approach that truly works. She really didn’t believe that sucking on 2 lozenges a day would work or be worth it, but has noticed such a major improvement that I don’t even have to ask or remind her to take it, which was a huge problem with all the other drugs we tried.
As a mother it has been truly frustrating and agonizing to see my daughter at such a young age deal with being in pain, not able to get good sleep, depression, ect. So Joint Mints has been a tremendous help.
I was called an “anomalous anomaly” by Mayo Clinic doctors in 1998. Since then, pain has been a constant part of my life – especially over the last seven years. I’ve been to many doctors: a vascular surgeon who was certain I had a congenital defeat affecting my blood flow, a neurologist who was certain I had juvenile degenerative disc disease, a rheumatologist who said I had an unusual form of fibromyalgia, another neurologist who said I had carpel tunnel syndrome, and finally, another rheumatologist who has diagnosed me with some kind of autoimmune and inflammation disease – but who says my testing history since 2003 is inconclusive. He told me I tested positive for Sjogren’s disease, but that “it doesn’t necessarily mean that what’s going on is caused by Sjogren’s”.
Over the course of the past five years, the pain I experienced actually brought me to the point where I didn’t really want to live – Why? The pain just sucked everything out from under me. It was completely unpredictable. Some days I would feel sort of normal, only to wake up the next day – exhausted – after a full night of sleep. The doctors ordered a sleep study, but they didn’t find anything like sleep apnea that could explain my lack of rest during sleep.
I started to believe that I deserved being sick – that I had to just tolerate living – and it started becoming “normal” to watch everything being taken away from me; my health, my hope, my dreams, my vitality, my energy, my worth, my relationships, my future…
Reading my own words, I can see how difficult it would be for someone who isn’t experiencing constant diffused pain to understand how hard it is and how exhausting fighting it can be. I’ve delivered four babies, all without drugs, and I can tell you without doubt, that daily, diffuse pain is much worse. It’s like a kind of torture that just wears down your mind and resiliency.
Then, about a month ago I reconnected with Dr. Roberts through Facebook. After looking at his site and reading some of the testimonials there I reached out to him because I know Dr. Roberts from high school and we had many of the same friends over 30 years now – so I had the advantage of knowing he wasn’t some kind of quack. Also, I grew up in a family that was well ahead of its time in regard to understanding the benefits of vitamins, good food, and health- both physically and mentally. So, I already knew something about the ingredients in Joint Mints, their safety, and the fact that taking the lozenge was really no different than drinking a cup of herbal tea.
After disclosing a little about my condition, I was surprised when he suggested I should give Joint Mints a try – that he was confident it could really help me. While I was hopeful – I didn’t really expect Joint Mints to completely WORK and to make such a huge difference in my life.
Within about 3 days I could feel the difference Joint Mints was making – It was hard for me to believe, but I could not deny the following:
1) I used to need a friend to work on pressure points before I’d be able to walk in the morning – now I don’t.
2) I didn’t have to “carefully” stand up after sitting, wait before taking a step, and then hold my back because it hurt – because it doesn’t hurt.
3) When I slept, I woke up feeling rested. In fact, I am sleeping the same number of hours that satisfied me 20 years ago.
4) I feel 20 years younger!
5) I felt “normal” – not drugged. I felt like myself again. I had energy. I could think and focus.
I am happy. Life is so much easier.
I’ve now been taking Joint Mints for about 3 weeks and I know it’s true that I’m feeling better and will keep feeling better. I am able to do things I wasn’t able to do before – and I thought I’d never be able to do again. It’s like the problems were just “lifted” away or removed. For example, I was driving my car and looked over my shoulder to merge left. When I returned to looking forward, I had a glimmer of a memory – which I almost didn’t even notice – I “remembered” that looking over my shoulder always used to hurt and I’d have to brace myself while doing it. I didn’t have to brace myself anymore.
Another time, I was talking with a friend about a very negative emotional situation and I noticed that my shoulders were aching. As I walked into another room, I was holding my back so I could walk straight because my back started aching. It took a few minutes before I realized I had forgotten to take Joint Mints that day. As soon as I took two tablets, the symptoms “lifted” away.
Two weeks later, I forgot again. ( I’ve heard it’s easy for people to forget to take medicine if they start feeling better ) That night, I noticed my left ankle and leg was very swollen. Both ankles and feet were feeling stiff and hot and achy (like my whole body used to feel). (The swelling on my left side – and the strange effects it would have on my vascular system, were another one of the anomalies the doctors never could explain)
In any event, their lack of a diagnosis doesn’t matter because as soon as I remembered to take Joint Mints, the swelling reduced and my ankles and feet don’t ache anymore.
I’m beginning to feel like me again. I’d almost forgotten what it was like to live without pain!
I thank God for this lozenge!
