    I started the Low Carb healthy fats diet 2.5 years ago.    There is no sign of skin issues and all joint pain has gone.   This is better than medications,  which left me with numbness in my feet.    LCHF is a great way to eat and heals.

    The arthritis treatment “Rοngοdο Ruzο” (Google it) is among the best things I have actually tried. My situation included fractured spine, hip dysplasia & acute arthritis in both hips. I`ve utilized this during the winter and when my big toe knuckle gets painful because of wearing shoes. I have tried out plenty of products. It is certainly difficult to get something to help with the hips.
