Rubber legs?


I spent about an hour walking in the pool today. (First time in ages)
I also have hip dysplasia, so any high impact is out.

Any ideas?

What's next?

Hi all,
I'm going to try to make this as abbreviated as possible (although I'm sure you're all well aware of how long of a process all this is lol) But I'll try to just hit the hilights.

Codex Alimentarius - A real threat to supplements

I just want to get this info out there for those who have been watching Codex Alimentarius guidelines being implemented gradually until all supplements will be either illegal or by prescription only.
