How Grace reduced her ankle pain and inflammation


Grace is a pain management doctor who went to Harvard Medical school. She has been a practicing physician for over 30 years, but she suffered her own injury which has led to persistent pain in her left ankle for over 3 years.

She sustained an ankle sprain that was not diagnosed properly by her own doctors. After the ankle sprain, she had complications with her foot and ankle that eventually led to complex ankle surgery.

After the surgery, she had to wear a boot for 3 years due to the intense pain. She stopped exercising, gained weight, and couldn’t do normal activities.

She was unable to return to her job in the operating room as a pain management doctor because she couldn't stand on her feet for more than 15 minutes.

For the past year, I've been helping Grace with an exercise program for her left ankle. Gradually, she’s been improving her strength and ankle mobility. She’s also participating in our personalized nutrition programs with our licensed sports nutritionist at our clinic in San Diego.

When we first starting working together, I suggested that she take our Turmeric extract to reduce inflammation in her ankle.

As a pain management doctor, she was skeptical because she figured an herbal supplement couldn’t be as effective as a medication like Ibuprofen or other NSAIDs.

I told her that she should do her own research and look into the benefits of turmeric extract. Studies show that 500-2000 mg of turmeric extract daily can provide benefits similar to Ibuprofen.

Months went by and she was slowly getting stronger.

Approximately 1 month ago, she came into my office saying she needed to tell me something. She sat down and told me she finally decided to try our Turmeric extract.

This is what she said:

“I don’t know what’s in that Active Atoms, but I know something changed inside my body. My ankle definitely feels better. I don’t have the same pain or stiffness.

In fact, I was able to climb up onto a chair and change 10 lightbulbs in my ceiling. Before, I didn’t have the confidence to stand up on the chair because my ankle felt weak. Now, I feel a better sense of overall mobility.”

She was so excited to tell me that her ankle was feeling better. In addition, she was also able to reach a huge milestone. She walked two miles without ankle pain!

Previously, she was able to walk only one mile. These improvements were significant achievements since she was only walking around her house when we first started working together.

Many of you may be dealing with pain that comes and goes. Maybe you cope with pain every day.

If you are taking Ibuprofen regularly, you may want to learn more about the benefits of our Turmeric extract.

Based on numerous studies, turmeric extract can help reduce pain and provide your body with powerful anti-inflammatory support.

Grace’s story is just one of many stories we hear about people taking our Turmeric. To read more powerful stories of people benefiting from our Turmeric, check out our website here.
