[QUOTE]I don't spend nearly as much time here as I did while in Oregon. I suppose it has something to do with being in the vicinity...I have come to rely on my own sources here in greater Boston than on this forum for information. I get to watch a lot more games too! I hope you've been well, it is nice to see some of the regulars holding down the fort too. Coincidentally I now work for a distributor of all natural supplements for joint health.
We never claim to be doctors but we are more open to a healthy and wholistic approach to injury diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation than "sports medicine" folks are. When I think about Josh Beckett, Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Lowell, Jed Lowrie, Tim Wakefield and other Red Sox players suffering injury I cringe.

Funny you mentioning that. A few years back, I opted to go outside conventional medicine and explored the herbal/natural field, and it literally saved my azz. Had an inflamed prostate due to an infection (not
an enlarged prostate due to age, etc.).
Anti-inflammatory meds didn't cut it. Surgery was the likely option as it adversely affected a colon disorder. I spent weeks at a local naturalistic store on their computer gathering data. Finally, one of the girls brought the product "ZYFLAMEND
" to my attention. I took it and in a few weeks was fine. It's since become the #1 selling herbal in the U.S. for healthy inflammation response.
In addition, I had my mother, who lives outside the Boston area, try a lactose intolerance enzyme. She has suffered horribly for years from this disorder.
It worked. Now she can eat dairy at will. I definitely buy into alternative approaches beyond what medical doctors advocate.
