Barb Gough - British Columbia
Hi, my name is Barb Gough. I'm 74 years old and I have a story I want to share with you. When COVID started in 2019, we were restricted as to what we could do. So I did a lot of walking. I walked on average between 20 and 25 kilometers every week.
I was quite excited about this, the fact that I could do it and made me feel much better. I had more energy. Life was great. And then six months ago, I began having knee pains, ankle pains, pains in my wrist. I wasn't able to walk. It got to be so difficult that I wasn't even able to get out of a chair in my own home just going to the bathroom.
I had to use a cane. Every time I use a cane and a crutch, I also purchased whatever aids I could purchase, such as wristbands to help me. And I wore these pretty much all day, every day, and a knee brace for my left knee, which was very painful. So with these aids, I was able to move a lot more comfortably, but I still had a lot of pain.
We were planning a holiday this coming October. So I went out and purchased a walker. I thought, I'm going on this holiday, a very special holiday for my husband and I. It's our 50th wedding anniversary. And if I'm having difficulty walking, I want to use a walker. So four months ago, I started on AlgaeCal Triple Power Fish Oil, and after two months, I no longer used my cane, my crutch, my wrist supports, or the walker, in just two months.
I wasn't on any other medication. I wasn't on any treatment program with my doctor. This is the only products I was taking. So my daughter had told me about it. So I thought, it's worth a try. It's not medication I had to order through my doctor. It's supplements, so I'm very, very happy with what I've been taking. And I've recently started on the bone building package, so I'm taking the AlgaeCal Plus and the AlgaeCal Strontium Boost. It's supposed to help prevent further loss, deterioration of bone. And I'm just thrilled that I'm able to walk and I'm going on my holiday and I'm not taking my walker.
