Please note: I am not a medical doctor, nor a scientist. The contents of this article are therefore not to be used as a cure for RSI and/or Fibromyalgia. It is a report about my personal experience with something I like to call a "wonder treatment" for terrible pain and I sincerely hope to be able to help others become pain free too.
My pains first started in July of 2005, whilst working in Housekeeping at a Holiday resort. It started as RSI (repetitive strain injury) from making beds, cleaning showers/bathrooms and dusting all day long. I informed my supervisor of this pain I was feeling and they sent me straight to the doctor. The doctor advised me there was not much he could do, and he commenced with giving me steroid injections every three months, so I could go on without too much pain. It was great being able to get the injections as I was able to keep working.
I could always feel it though when the injections were running out and I was due for another shot. At one point the pain got so bad that I had to take a week off work. I couldn't hold anything in my right hand anymore. Sleeping was a nightmare as I wasn't able to get my hand comfortable. Any kind of twisting of the hand would send sharp pains up my arm. Well... if you suffer from the same thing, you know what I mean. But you don't have to suffer. Just read on.
I continued with the steroid injections and occasional painkillers until it got unbearable. I was 2 years into the injections and at my new place of employment (still cleaning) when I had to give it all up. After heavy days of cleaning, my upper arm would swell up so much and I'd be left feeling like my arm had been severely beaten up. An inflammation had developed and the doctor suggested that with continual use of the injections, I would suffer the consequences down the track so he recommended I seek alternative work.
For most of this year I had been suffering from tendonitis. Vacuuming for only 20 minutes brought great pain to my arm and shoulders and it would last for days. It was around this time that I was introduced by my mother to a natural food supplement called Bovine Colostrum. She read about the sometimes incredible effects it has on various auto-immune disorders and pains. I took three (capsules) straight away and within 20 minutes, the pain was gone completely! (I kid you not!)
Bovine Colostrum is a product made from the first milk a cow feeds her calf. It contains an enormous dose of minerals and vitamins to kick start the calf's organs. Without receiving the colostrum, the calf would die.
Bovine Colostrum has been used by athletes to boost energy and by body builders to increase muscle mass for ages but science only recently discovered that some patented forms of Bovine Colostrum can assist with the release of adult stem cells from your bone marrow into your blood stream.
Adult stem cells are your body's repair kit. They are capable to replace damaged body tissue with healthy tissue and they can do that pretty fast too. Hence my pains disappearing fast.
I had strong shoulder pains that morning before taking the supplement and it was gone. Mum couldn't believe it and neither could I but it was true! Now I am vacuuming for long periods and doing 5-hour long cleans without a single pain in my wrist and arms. It's incredible! I am taking 2 capsules a day for maintenance and when I go out cleaning I take 3 capsules before I leave. That is enough to keep me absolutely pain free, the whole day.
The Colostrum also helped restore and rebuilt the muscle tissue of my arms, shoulders and wrists. It also cleared the inflammation, which caused these terrible pains. Who could have dreamed that something like this existed?
