Raven Is Laughing Again...

Updated on February 26, 2008

....Thank you Nussentials

Raven is my three year old granddaughter who was recently diagnosed with "Perthes Disease", a degenerative bone condition that attacks the hips in young children under the age of 8.

In an X-Ray, her hips looked moth eaten. She was in constant pain. SItting, walking, moving would all cause severe pain. She has to be carried to the bathroom and held upright, crying the entire time. Can you image how helpless that makes you feel?

A trip to Children Hospital in Phoenix (GREAT hospital by the way, I highly recommend it!) let us know why this beautiful and normally happy child had quit laughing. They told us why screams replaced joy. "Perthes Disease". Yuk.

Treatment options included braces to hold her legs in a single position to allow the bone to regrow correctly. Supplements to ensure the growth. Drugs for pain management until things started to improve. Their treatment plan was mapped out in months.

I became a woman on a mission.

I represent a Health and Wellness company called Nussentials that sells products for joint pain, arthritis, improving the immune function, anti-aging and more... surely something would help.

RUN! was a capsule for arthritis and joint pain, and was the product I thought most likely to help. One little problem. She is three. She doesn't take pills. But it contained glucosamine and chrondriotin, two supplements the doctor's said might help. So, I did what any desperate woman would do. I openned the capsules and sprinkled the powder on her oatmeal. She refused to eat it. I mixed with juice, she refused to drink it. I blended and made popcicles out of it, still no dice.

I was still experimenting with ways to get these vital nutrients into her little body when Nussentials came out with a new product called RESTORE!. Yippie! It's a liquid!

I started mixing one ounce of RESTORE and one ounce of MULTI into her juice each morning when I made up the 2 liter jug she would drink from for the day. Success! A quick and easy way to get her taking the supplements she needed.

And guess what?

She now races me up the stairs... and wins!

Thank you Nussentials for another success story.
