I forgot to add-- you don't drink the raspberry vinegar straight; it's diluted with water or sparkling water when you are ready to drink it. I'm not a fan of vinegar except for vinaigrette salad dressing, but I found this very tasty. I made some that was a combination of raspberry and blackberry that was really nice!

I'm surprised joint hypermobility didnt come up in this conversation (yet). About 10% of the population has benign or non-generalized joint hypermobility. Lax ligaments allow more motion in the joint which permits excess popping and clicking.

In females, ligament laxity is more pronounced in the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle. (And during pregnancy, and thereafter a second pregnancy).

Vitamin C may help over long term. Glucosamine sulfate may help in those who also have allergic symptoms. Glucosamine sulfate inhibits mast cells in connective tissue. Theres a hypothesis (research pending) that mast cell activity causes the degradation of collagen in hypermobility disorders.

Prolotherapy and physical therapies are the best current treatments for hypermobility. A physical therapist can teach you how to move without stretching the joint capsule.

Clicks can be tendon snaps. If so, a physical therapist can help you with that too.

Massage therapy is not recommended in general for hypermobility, except if needed to correct a subluxation or relieve pressure on nerves.

Sorry to write a book! I hope it helps the next person who searches fir or stumbles upon this thread!


This is great info!

I was told excessive pain ( from clicking bits) was all in my head - a diagnosis of PMDD (luteal phase distress) and drugged. Hypermobility makes much more sense. My body overall is weaker without horses in my life, but the withdrawal from benzos (for the PMDD) would have contributed too, now knowing about mast cell activity.

I am really, really flexible. The splitz are flashy, but flexibility without the strength is not so great. I really need to get my strength back!

Im already on to the vit C, thanks :)

Smart choice! 😍 I cant stomach it, but there's evidence to support this remedy for reducing blood glucose! Here's one link, there are more pieces of published research to support ACV for blood glucose reduction after eating. Scholar.google.com can help you find more if you are curious.

Thank you! This is good of you. I'm always curious when it comes to health of animal's as well as humans.

It was really good to find you here, I genuinely mean this. :)
