What Is Joint Pain?
Articulations are the joints that link bones to each other. Their function is to protect the bones from impacts and to offer the skeleton some mobility. As they are constantly solicited, we don’t pay much attention to them until the day the first aches begin: stiffness, difficulty getting up, bending down, or climbing the stairs… This pain is due to the body’s natural ageing. They can also be caused by a change of season, inappropriate physical efforts, repetitive motion and being overweight .Many customers have expressed the incredible results they obtained by wearing the Pure Hazelwood bracelet or necklace for their joint pain, even when they had never found relief before.

Arthritis is an inflammatory disease that affects the patient even at rest. Pain can subside with activity. On the other hand, osteoarthritis is more likely to cause pain during movement, due to a change in the cartilage. This is why we call osteoarthritis a « mechanical » disease.
Osteoarthritis mostly affects the hands and back; arthritis can affect any articulation . Nearly one out of four people suffers from joint pain.

« I will join the many testimonials, as I was also skeptical of the necklace. I have been wearing one for 6 months and I feel no more arthritic pain. It’s truly marvellous, I feel 5 years younger. Last year, I could barely walk due to the pain and today I feel no pain at all. I confirm that it works. »
