So almost 3 years ago now, I woke up one morning and my joints of the spine were super flexible and popping like pop beads. It started one day in the lower spine and in a couple of days it was the entire way up through the neck.

Within a couple of weeks it then included my right shoulder and eventually my ankle and knee. It took several months, maybe even a year before I noticed it in the left shoulder.

That summer, or maybe the next, I cannot remember, but I was in my garden and stepped in a hole and popped my knee and it took a week to recover.

When I noticed it, I started looking back on my life and connecting the dots. I have had an issue with my wrist for a few years before hand. Just something not right and lots of comings and goings of a ganglion cyst. Once, in Japan, my chiropractor commented that I had a very flexible back. I responded that I was doing some exercises, but he said “its the kind you get from your mother.”

Putting two and two together, I realize that whatever it is, it’s in my family to some degree. My boys all have a lot of extra mobility from their joints (my oldest can jumprope his arms), but their dad and his dad all have flat feet and hyper-mobility of the joints. So my kids must have a double whammy.

I have been researching a lot about what I think could be wrong. Looked into oxalates a lot because I know that I do eat of high oxalate foods (spinach, almonds, beets) so at least have lessened those, and looked into EDS and joint hyper-mobility syndrome. At the end of the day, my thought process is that if it is getting worse, there is some kind of degeneration happening.

Its a catch 22 because I think weak muscles play a role, but I fear doing too much exercise as to not hurt a joint.

I pulled out the Cussak protocol for EDS and looked at other protocols and there are a lot of great supplements for strengthening and building connective tissue: Vitamin C, MSM, silica, Lions Mane, glucosamine, Vitamin K, boron, and diatomaceous earth, just to name a few.

I am also using LIfewave’s X49 with the X39 for natural stem cell production.

The bottom line is that I am not going to just lie there and let things go. If there is something I can do, I am going to try. As we age, we may be breaking down faster than we can build ourselves up, but we can at least soften the blow.
