Most of you know that Hubby broke his neck while mountain biking. He had surgery and will be fine.
You can read my blog about it here.

HE’LL BE FINE BUT…
Many of you have asked how Hubby is doing. Thank you.
Hubby is doing fine – and he will recover – but he is very stiff and sore. I mean, when your body is flying at 30mph and a mountain stops you – it is gonna leave a mark, so to speak…
Yup. He will be fine but with surgery, broken ribs, stretched ligaments and tendons, and the overall pain of body slamming – Hubby is very, very sore and stiff.
I mean, he was very sore and stiff.
Let me tell you about what just happened…
A LITTLE BACKGROUND TO THE STORY
Many of you have heard me wax lyrically about Omega Alpha equine products. I am totally sold, they work so incredibly well.
My favorites so far are Anti-Flam which saved Norma during her very long bout of laminitis, SinewX which has made my 22 year old ex-show horse dance like a ballerina again, Biotic-8 which soothed Remi’s ulcers and also helped Wrigley gain weight, and Respi-Free which helped Slick breathe again!

A NICE GESTURE
OK, so back to Hubby.
Somehow the people at Omega Alpha heard about Hubby’s broken neck.
Immediately, without anyone asking, they sent to him 3 of their human products.
Well, I thought that was very, very nice of them. Hubby thought it was nice of them, too.
But, Hubby was very skeptical.
He liked his pain meds that weren’t really working. After all, they were prescribed by his doctors…
I begged Hubby to try the Omega Alpha ‘gifts’ since nothing else was working for his stiffness and joint pain.
OK. He would do it.
I think Hubby was just desperate enough to try something ‘silly’ like girly herbal stuff. I mean, you should have heard him complain…
Hubby: I’m so stiff! I hate this. How long has it been already? I hate this!
Me: Honey, you hit a rock going 30mph. You are lucky to be with us right now.
Hubby: I’m soooooo stiff. I’m soooooo sore. Make it stop. Make it stop. I feel old. I feel old.
Me: I hear you. But, these things take time. You broke your neck, for cryingoutloud! You had surgery less than a month ago.
Hubby: I feel old. I feel old. Make it stop. Make it stop. I’m sooooooo sore. I’m sooooooo sore. This isn’t normal. I’ve turned into an old man. I’ve turned into my father. I’ll never be normal again. I may as well give up now. (snorkle sniff cackle gripe)
Me: Do you want some cheese with that whine or should I break your neck again?… Why don’t you try these lovely items that Omega Alpha sent to you special…
Hubby (feebly lifting his arms to me): Gimme those herbally girly vitamins.
AND SO HE TRIES THEM…
And so he tried them. He promised that he would take them, as directed, for a week.
I swear to the gods of Hubbyrelief, he is feeling much much better – like a new man! In fact, we forgot to bring his ‘juices’ on our trip this weekend and Hubby was very upset. He started to feel sore again as we were driving home. Immediately upon our arrival, he raced into the kitchen to whip up his drinks.
OMG. He is BOUNDING around. He even flew down the steps and swung around the bannister like a 10th grader.
IT WORKS. Those girly hebally things WORKED!
WHAT PRODUCTS WERE THEY? (no affiliation)
OK, here goes… These are the Human products that are very similar to the Equine products. Almost the same names. These are exactly what was sent to us.
1) OMEGA ALPHA ANTIFLAMX: This is an anti-inflammatory just like the Equine Anti-Flam. Hubby says it tastes bad but I think it tastes fine. In fact, I put it in my morning shake and didn’t even taste it. Here is the link to buy it.
2) GLUCOSAJOINT: I have ordered this before from Omega Alpha and I KNOW it works because I put it in my daily coffee and have totally noticed less joint pain and stiffness. Here is the link to buy it.
3) SINEWPLEX: This is like the Sinew-X that I gave my mare who is acting like she’s 22 going on 6! I stole a scoop of this from Hubby and put it in my morning shake. I couldn’t taste much. It was kind of fruity. I wish I had my own tub of this because I want to try it for a week, too! Here is the link to buy it.
SHIPPING FROM CANADA
The website says that shipping is free if you order more than $100 Canadian. And, if you don’t order over $100, shipping is only $20 Canadian (which is $19.66 US dollars).
Anyway, I am SOLD once again on Omega Alpha products. Hubby is, too!
LET ME KNOW (I have no affiliation – although I wish I did!)
Please let me know if you purchase these items and use them. I would love to hear your great stories, too!
