I grew up on wonder bread, margarine, jelly, and sugary boxed cereals with pasteurized milk. It is probably a minor miracle that my health was not a complete train wreck from the beginning. Through my 20’s the sugary boxed cereals continued and there was more pasteurized milk enhanced with Nestle’s Quick. Healthy eating was for suc***s. Until age 30, give or take, I had no significant health problems.
Starting in my early thirties I was still in fairly good shape but started to notice minor hip pain. When it continued to nag I realized it was not sore muscles but the joints themselves. Not wanting to be an arthritic old man before the age of 35, I began to look for answers. I didn’t like the plan of doing drugs till I die so I looked elsewhere.
I stumbled across some information that said osteoarthritis is basically caused by a nutritional deficiency. Being a bit older and wiser, I thought that option was now worth pursuing and I did. Over several years I worked on cleaning up my diet and found that a supplement called glucosamine sulfate helped noticeably. I am now in my 50’s and have been eating food almost exclusively from local farms. I take my cod liver oil and X-factor butter oil every day. I get a lot of raw milk and other raw dairy. I stopped taking glucosamine sulfate many years ago and hip joints have not bothered me for many years. I have also stayed active and not turned into a couch potato. In my case, I made effective lifestyle corrections when the symptoms were in the early stages and so far have lived happily ever after.
