Also realize until something is considered a standard of practice in medicine many health care providers will officially shun this information. Why is that? Unfortunately if you are not doing what 90% of the rest health providers are doing you can be considered for malpractice. A health provider can lose their license and some have for doing innovative medicine. This discourages innovation, imho.
There are two reasons why I do not worry about that. One is that I am a RN and our license states our mission is to maintain homeo stasis. Another way of saying health, so I see myself as living up to that standard. That differs from a Doctors license which says their mission is to treat disease. The other reason is I am retired and do not intend to ever re enter the work force.
I have always found interesting the maintenance of health for a very important reason. I want to have a pain free mobile old age and if I live longer in this process, that is a bonus. I enjoy this kind of reporting as I see the benefits in those who follow these studies. I also have the time to search for new things to report on. Something many health providers do not have the time to do.
Recently I have received a report that products for arthitis over the counter that contain Boswellia Serrata are very effective in reducing joint pain. I told a few people about it and the reports are all good. Apparently it is a very old supplement that has BIG anti inflammatory effects and no significant side effects. That is right down my alley.
So what the hell is Boswellia Serrata. Never heard of that stuff and it doesn’t really roll off the tongue as something you want to try! It is included in one of the products that also contains glucosamine. I do not endorse products or even want to be suspected of endorsing a product, if I can. If you look at the various products you will find it easily on the same shelf as other proprietor products for joint pain. Perhaps you have heard of the more popular name for Boswellia Serrata. Frankensense!
