With regard to the inflammation your body is experiencing... I was recently turned on to a product called ViaViente (check it out at www.viaviente.com) that has been acclaimed to do wonders for decreasing inflammation.
I have had amazing results with the use of this product. I noticed changes in my body as early as 4 days after using it. Besides being a massage therapist, I also do data entry and have for years. The joints in my fingers have been incredibly sore for as long as I can remember and I had lost the ability to make a hard fist without pain. After drinking the Via for 4 days I suddenly became aware that my hands were not aching and that I could make a fist with no problem at all!
Of course there are so many more benefits than that. But after reading about your experience with inflammation I HAD to at least give you the information so you could check it out if you wanted to.
