Moving Past My Hip Replacement

Shared by Petra Stevenson, AIM Director in Ashton, Ontario.

Petra-Stevenson.jpgBeing a very active person, owning an organic livestock farm and teaching fitness classes twice a week, I was not sure how to live with the fact that I needed a hip replacement. How could I deal with not being able to move around much? It was a scary thought.

A few hours after surgery, I started applying topical magnesium from The AIM Companies on my operated leg on the thigh and knee and around the edges of the heavy bandage. My leg was very swollen, and I could not move it a lot.

Every few hours, I applied more of Mag-nificence even throughout the night, helping me sleep better and feel more relaxed.

I tripled my BarleyLife intake, doubled my Herbal Fiberblend mixed with Fit ‘n Fiber and took 8 FloraFood capsules separately from 6-12 PrepZymes capsules—also between meals—every day. I feel this helped to offset the side effects of the strong pain medication and antibiotics and to detox faster.

Two weeks after the operation, I met with the surgeon. He told me that I was the only patient without any bruising on the entire leg. I could also walk with only one crutch. The same week, I met with my physiotherapist, who gave me the green light to put full weight on my leg and start walking without any crutches or other aids, which was a bit unusual to be doing so soon after surgery.

My second meeting with the surgeon and physiotherapist was scheduled six weeks after the operation. I followed the suggested exercise instructions but had already started teaching my fitness classes by week five.

I also continued taking my regular AIM products: the Garden Trio for all of the nutrients and for consistent, mild detoxing, Peak Endurance to recover from my very active days, CalciAIM to support my bone health, ProPeas for plant protein and Herbal Fiberblend, FloraFood and PrepZymes for my digestive health. I also added Frame Essentials to my daily program.

Thanks to AIM and their great products, eight weeks after my hip replacement I am getting around very well.
