A person has no cartilage left in their knee and it hurts. The doctor says you need $400 injections of Synvisc it’s magic.
You may ask “hey Doc any other more natural approaches?”
Well there is the combs of roosters. You say “WHAT!!!”
Yeah you know the red funny looking thing on the top of a rooster. Lets grind that up and you take some. Would you?
Well that of course is what Synvisc is made of.(1) You likely thought is was some high tech drug. There are several high tech drug injections, but if you ask around you will find out stuff made from chicken combs works the best, but why does it cost $400 a shot? (that’s another story)
Being in “natural” therapies I mostly hear from Doctors that foods, herbs, supplements are a waste of time and seldom work. Then they inject a crazy expensive form of hyaluronic acid from the combs of chicken.
