Subject: Re: Joint Rescue
The reason we are so cynical is that we are constantly bombarded with invitations to buy product after product that is said to help or even cure arthritis. In the 35 years I have had Rheumatoid arthritis I have tried probably more than 100 different 'natural' products which have cost me a great deal of money. None of them has ever worked for me and I have to say I don't like the way many of these products use the fear we all have of chemical drugs as a real selling point (I'm not saying your product does this) to make us feel we must find a natural alternative to the prescribed drugs we have to use. This can be a very dangerous road to go down if you have a serious inflammatory illness like rheumatoid arthritis which can (unlike osteoarthritis) be fatal if not managed effectively.
The reason we have the statement at the top of the forum:
"N.B. Please remember that this is a space for people with arthritis to make contact with other people in the same situation. It is not a place to sell stuff or to promote any particular product or service"
Is because we cannot verify every product promoted on this site is not a. useless or b. harmful and also this site is not about offering free targeted advertising for people selling goods or services.
Sorry if you feel I have unfairly treated you but please understand that many people who use this forum have very serious health problems and a gel that is used to rub on a knee is not going to have much of an effect on someone who is (for instance) waiting for a joint replacement...
