Agnes 91, swears by VIGO JOINT Gel for her painful arthritic hands
“If this soothing joint gel works for me, it will work for anyone !”
AGNES is truly an amazing woman, full of life and energy. You can only hope to be as fit and well as she is when you reach 71, never mind 91! Sitting with Agnes in her living room in Colchester, I asked her what was her secret for staying young. She told me, “Keeping busy and having an active life is very important. But I’ve not always been able to do that. If you’d seen me a year ago, things were very different”.
“Up until I was 86 I felt fit as a fiddle but then it seemed I had one problem after another”. I asked her what happened.
“My body started deteriorating, I think it all started after a fall I had on the high street, I don’t know how it happened but I tripped and next thing I knew I was flat on my face. Lots of people came over to help me but I was mortified. My left knee was in agony and my ankle was painful too – my hands and wrists were really sore. Thankfully someone drove me home.
“I thought I’d be fine the next day but I was still in agony so I went to see my GP. He said that I’d twisted my ankle and badly bruised my knee, hands and wrists, but it should heal in a few weeks if I rested.
I started getting pains inmy hands, like a throbbing pain
The next few weeks I was climbing the walls having to stay indoors, and my son John kept telling me off for not resting enough. Anyway my ankle healed but my knee always gave me problems after that.
Oh well I thought, a dodgy knee isn’t the end of the world, worse things can happen. Then one day I started getting pains in my hands, like a throbbing pain, but as the weeks went by it got worse – some days the pain was excruciating.
My GP had confirmed that I had arthritis in my hands, and that the only thing I could do to ease the pain was to take painkillers and anti-inflammatories. The last thing I wanted to do was rely on painkillers for the rest of my life, but some days I had to, I could hardly button up my blouse or open a jar of coffee, never mind do any gardening. I felt totally useless and realised I was going to lose my independence.
I’d tried to hide the pain from John, I didn’t want him to worry, but one day he turned up unexpectedly and found me sobbing in the kitchen.”
Hard to believe when Agnes looks so spritely now. So what happened to turn her health around? Agnes said:
“That day John held me in his arms and cried with me. It was heart breaking; I never wanted to be a burden to him. He said I could move in with him but I wouldn’t have it. John knows how stubborn and independent I am, so he said he was going to get the best help he could find, so that I could manage at home.
Twoweeks after our melt downjohn handedme a tube of gel.
“To be honest, I thought he was going to get ‘meals on wheels’ or something like that. Two weeks after our melt- down he came to see me and handed me a tube of gel. I could have laughed – what was he thinking? Unknown to him I’d tried every cream, potion, pills and gel under the sun. I had spent a fortune, but none of them gave me much relief. To make him happy I said I’d give it a go. He could see I was not convinced.
“He told me that he’d researched the best products for arthritis, and he came across VIGO Joint Gel. I’d never heard of it. He told me it contained proven ingredients that were antiinflammatory and reduced pain and could even help repair damaged joints. I’d already heard of the benefits of Glucosamine, Menthol and Zinc, but there were other ingredients I’d never heard of. He said the results and reviews were incredible and he insisited that I had to use it twice a day.” “Did you use it?” I asked. “I did, he’d gone to all the trouble to find it so I had to give it a go. I put it on my knee and hands that evening before going to bed. The next morning I didn’t wake up until 9.00 – I had slept right through. I couldn’t believe it; normally the pain in my hands keeps me awake. It didn’t really dawn on me that it was because of the gel, I thought it was because I’d felt so drained lately.
It hadmadethe pain inmy knee and hands completely disappear.
“I put the Joint Gel on that morning, I didn’t want John telling me off! In the afternoon I’d run out of milk so I went to the shops for a few things. I fully expected the normal painful walk and having to struggle to carry the shopping bag home, but I was fine, no painful joints. Maybe this was working I thought, I hoped.
I carried on using the VIGO Joint Gel twice a day. By Sunday I felt marvellous, in fact so good that I thought I’d tackle the weeding in the garden, as it had got into a right mess. In the afternoon John came over, he was not happy, ‘ mum, what are doing, you shouldn’t be doing that’. Well I sprang up and gave him a big hug and thanked him. What for? He asked. I told him that the gel he bought had worked wonders, that it had made the pain in my knee and hands completely disappear.
“I’ve been using it ever since, I wouldn’t be without it. There is the odd day when I still get a niggle or two, but nothing in comparison to what I went through before. I’m so grateful to John for finding this incredible gel and to the company who developed it, it truly is life changing.”
Before I left she told me, “If it works for me at 91, I’m sure it would work wonders for anyone else.”
