Hi guys,

Not sure this is the right section to post my feedback, please feel free to move me to the right section if I made a mistake.

This is not a new treatment but I wanted to share a very interesting feedback.
Needless to say that I've tried a lot of medicines.

As a quick reminder, I've been suffering for pain for almost 20 years. A surgeon did arthroscopy on my hip to clean the joints and to remove the bump on the hip which I may have done will I was 14 years old while doing martial arts (too much flexible :-) ).

So I had a stem cells treatment on June 2017.
This has slightly improved my life but not amazingly.
On a scale from 1 to 10 , my pain was usually around 4-6 .

After reading a book (Tools of Titans from Tim Ferris, which I recommend you !) , I've seen an interesting suggestion to take "hydrolyzed gelatin" . Processed gelatin is Collagen.
Luckily I could find easily pills of Collagen.
I've tried taking Collagen (and also Magnesium to be completely transparent) for 3 weeks and the results are just amazing.

I've gained back flexibility. I've been able to run 2 times with not too much pain (this was the first time I could run after the last 4 years ...).
The pain is now around 1-3 / 10 !

I don't have a brand new hip but the change is very appreciated.
I was really considering not to do the surgery anymore !

But in fact, I'd like to be able to go back to Martial Arts , so I will still do it.

Hope this is an interesting feedback.

Hi Surratt,

In fact, I've realized that the main improvements come from the Magnesium , not really from the Collagen.

The mix of Collagen + Magnesium might be very good, but the best improvement effects were because of the Magnesium.
