My philosophy on ageing
I have never really understood the labels “anti-age” or “pro-age”. Our western societies take on age seems to be obsessed with numbers. Yes, the years go by and that is inevitable. It is something that I accept. I am older now than I was ten years ago. Our bodies change, acceptance is the best course of action in my book.
Taking care of ourselves
Now that does not mean that we should become complacent. In fact quite the reverse. We almost certainly need to invest more time and effort in taking care of ourselves, both mentally and physically. One of the areas that can begin to cause problems as we get older is our joints; especially if we have had any kind of injury. I had a very bad ski accident in my early 40s and ever since then my right hip and knee have been slightly weaker than my left.
A few years ago I began to experience pain and stiffness in both knees and went through the usual investigations of MRI scans etc. This revealed that I had osteoarthritis in both knees. I was offered cortisone injections, which I declined. A course of physiotherapy helped a little. Exercises in my pilates class make sure that my posture is as good as it can be so as not to put extra pressure on my joints.
A strict alkaline diet and sticking to an exercise regime has helped. Despite this, I was still experiencing the occasional pain and stiffness in my knees.
As my regular readers will be aware I very rarely accept product reviews; but when AlchemLifeuk™ contacted me and asked if I would like to test their new herbal food supplement FlexiQule™. I was definitely willing to give it a go. This has turned out to be a wise decision. I have been taking the supplements for the past two weeks and have definitely noticed an improvement in the suppleness of my joints.
The steps outside our apartment in France, that lead to the village of Grimaud, are very steep and narrow. I can now navigate these steps with relative ease and no longer need to resort to taking the lift, which is often referred to affectionately as “the old people’s lift”.
Leading an active and healthy life
We all want to live an active and healthy life as we get older. Joint pain and stiffness can be a barrier to this. AlchemLife™ has developed FlexiQule™ Herbal Supplements, which contain 100% natural botanic active ingredients with a unique combination of Boswellia and ginger extracts. Both of these extracts have been used for over a thousand years in herbal medicine. I know that ginger is excellent in reducing inflammation as it was prescribed as part of my Gastritis diet.
I like to do as much research as possible before I write about a product so was interested to read that this is no “Johnny-come-lately” company but has a long history of researching and offering natural medicine and food supplements.
