Our son Finn is turning three on Saturday. Of course he’ll always be my baby no matter what age. Over the last couple of months he has been experiencing knee pain. Sometimes it is worse than others and he’ll actually limp from the pain. I took him up to the local children’s hospital for an x-ray and labwork earlier this week. The x-ray showed inflammation of the soft tissue around his left knee. His lab work thus far has come back normal. His pediatrician, Dr. C, feels he should be seen by rheumatology and so we have an upcoming appointment to help find out more.
So in researching ways during the interim to help with his pain and to help with the swelling of course I’m scouring the internet. So I want to find some natural healing or more homeopathic ways of helping reduce the inflammation. There’s a drink called Nopalea (No-pah lay’uh) which is made from the fruit of the Nopal cactus. I have no idea what it might taste like, but testimonials say it tastes good. Nopalea helps your body neutralize its inner toxins and reduce its inflammation. This particular fruit has antioxidants (Betalains) that have been scientifically proven to aid the body in a healthful way.
I mean until we know for sure what is making his knees hurt so badly, it couldn’t be detrimental to try this anti-inflammatory wellness drink. And maybe to make it more fun we could freeze it and then let him use the blender (with supervision of course) to make his very own wellness smoothy!
You can try Nopalea for free (only pay $9.95 for shipping) by calling 1-800-203-7063.
