This health solution is for anyone suffering with osteoarthritis, degenerating discs or wishing to avoid a joint replacement or wanting to prevent joint issues.

joint replacements how to avoid them


Have you ever thought about why only one hip or one knee develops osteoarthritis and not the other?  Why did that one particular hip/knee become bone on bone?

We often accept that osteoarthritis is the cause of our pain and is the ‘reason’ why we need a hip/knee replacement, but we fail to consider why the hip/knee cartilage broke down in the first place. This is understandable, as we usually just want to move forward with a treatment plan that will eliminate the pain.

In her book, biomechanist Katy Bowman explains, “Every unique joint configuration, and the way that joint configuration is positioned relative to gravity, and every motion created, and the way that motion was initiated, creates a unique load that in turn creates a very specific pattern of strain in the body.” So, how your hip, or any joint, is positioned–aligned or askew–determines the load and strain on the joint structures that are generated with movement.

That is why we recommend that if you are feeling signs of, or have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis, the first thing that you want to do is correct your body alignment.

Although many people find success with a qualified Chiropractor, the safest and gentlest way we know to do this is with Bowen Therapy.

If you have osteoarthritis, the only way to permanently relieve the pain and prevent complete joint deterioration is

1. Make sure your body is properly aligned (we recommend Bowen Therapy).

2. Reduce the inflammation.  There are many products in our online store that we can recommend for reducing the inflammation.

MSM (and this should always be coupled with buffered vitamin C known as calcium ascorbate)




3. Rebuild the cartilage (cushion) between the joints. When the doctor says you are bone on bone, there isn’t much cartilage left, but there is some. AND, as long as there is some, then you can restore the cartilage.

Egg shell membrane (found in our Joint Pain Relief Formula)

4. Take your daily essential nutrients (Total Health Pack) so that your body has all the nutrients it requires to heal and repair.

5. Get physical activity and move your body DAILY. Joints need movement to stay healthy, retain mobility/range of motion, and receive nutrients.

The Anti-Inflammatories


MSM can be used to both reduce the inflammation and will also help repair the joint.

To know all the details about this amazing nutrient, please go here…. MSM: Is It Too Good To Be True

Depending on the severity of the inflammation, will depend on how much MSM you would need to reduce it.  Very mild inflammation may respond to 2,000 to 3,000 mg (with 1,000 mg of vitamin C as calcium ascorbate each time as C makes MSM more effective) twice a day.  If you have severe swelling, you may need as much as 3,000 to 5,000 mg every couple of hours (along with 1,000 mg of vitamin C as calcium ascorbate each time).

Using MSM will also help build collagen which is found between your vertebrae and your joints, referred to as the “cushion” is a very strong fiber. By weight, it is stronger than steel! However, it needs sulfur cross-links to each of the fibers to achieve this remarkable strength.

Many people are deficient in this sulfur.  MSM is a sulfur supplement that allows a strong repair.

When we don’t have the ability to cross-link these fibers, the body makes keratin, the same protein that makes up your hair, nails and skin. Keratin is strong, but doesn’t have the tensile strength of collagen, so the repair made by this scar-tissue is easily damaged and re-injured.

Note: Each Total Health Pack contains 1,000 mg of MSM and 1,000 mg of vitamin C.

This is the minimum amount of each for the prevention of osteoarthritis.

Serrapeptase: If you have inflammation, pain or any calcification in your joints or arteries, I HIGHLY recommend trying this product!

Serrapeptase™, is an enzyme which induces anti-inflammatory and anti-edemic (prevents swelling and fluid retention) activity in a number of tissues.

Besides reducing inflammation, one of Serrapeptase™’s most profound benefits is reduction of pain, due to its ability to block the release of pain-inducing amines from inflamed tissues.

Physicians throughout Asia and Europe have recognized the anti-inflammatory and pain-blocking benefits of this naturally occurring substance and are using it in treatment as an alternative to salicylates, ibuprofen and other NSAIDs.

It also digests non-living tissue such as blood clots, arterial plaque and calcification. It can also shrink or diminish varicose veins.

If you have any of the above challenges, this product is definitely worth a try.

Dosage: 120,000 IU 1-2 capsules two times per day on an empty stomach (morning and night is best). Take the highest dose for a minimum of 7 days or until the symptoms decrease substantially and then reduce to 1 cap two times per day (it is safe to take more ongoing if needed).

Curcumin: Antioxidant, Anti-inflammatory, Relief of Joint Pain


Curcumin Antioxidant, Anti-inflammatory, Relief of joint pain.

Like Serrapeptase, Curcumin won’t heal a deteriorating joint, but it does have anti-inflammatory properties that are proven to help reduce irritation to tissues characterized by pain, redness, swelling and heat.

Dosage: 1 capsule three times per day

Boswellia Pain Reliever and Anti-inflammatory

This Indian herb is one treatment that is particularly useful against arthritic inflammation and associated pain. With sustained use, Boswellia may help maintain steady blood flow to your joints, supporting your joint tissues’ ability to boost flexibility and strength.

Clinical trials have demonstrated that boswellic acids have anti-inflammatory action similar to that of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS). However, unlike NSAIDS, long-term use of boswellia does not appear to lead to irritation or ulceration of the stomach.

Dosage: 1 capsule three times per day

Repairing Cartilage


Repairing the Cartilage 

Hyaluronic Acid (HA): Integral component of synovial fluid and cartilage in joints, provides lubrication.

Hyaluronic acid is a key component of your cartilage, responsible for moving nutrients into your cells and moving waste out.

One of its most important biological functions is the retention of water… second only to providing nutrients and removing waste from cells that lack a direct blood supply, such as cartilage cells.

Unfortunately, the process of normal aging reduces the amount of HA synthesized by your body. Oral hyaluronic acid supplementation may effectively help most people cushion their joints after just 2 to 4 months.

Although there are many claims about HA, we know two things for sure.

  1. HA attaches to collagen and elastin to form cartilage. It keeps the cartilage that cushions joints strong and flexible, and it increases your supply of joint-lubricating synovial fluid.
  2. HA helps moisturize your skin and maintain collagen levels which equates to less wrinkles!Dosage: start with one capsule twice a day for at least 3 months, which may need to be maintained ongoing, or you may be able to cut it back to one day.  Should be taken with at least one Total Health Pack per day along with natural anti-inflammatories.

Glucosamine: Provides structure, elasticity and strength to joints, prevents cartilage loss.

In osteoarthritis, cartilage — the rubbery material that cushions joints — becomes stiff and loses its elasticity. This makes the joint prone to damage and may lead to pain, swelling, loss of movement, and further deterioration.

Since the body’s natural glucosamine is used to make and repair joint cartilage, taking glucosamine as a nutritional supplement helps repair damaged cartilage by augmenting the body’s supply of glucosamine.

Dosage: 1,000 mg twice a day in combination with at least one Total Health Pack along with one of the natural anti-inflammatories.

Joint Pain Relief:  Contains eggshell membrane to rebuild cartilage

This formula contains eggshell membrane which is the unique protective barrier between the egg white and the mineralized eggshell.

The membrane contains elastin, a protein that supports cartilage health, and collagen, a fibrous protein that supports cartilage and connective tissue strength and elasticity. It also contains transforming growth factor-b, a protein that supports tissue rejuvenation, along with other amino acids and structural components that support the stability and flexibility of your joints by providing them with the building blocks needed to build cartilage.

This formula also contains Boswellia and Curcumin, so additional natural anti-inflammatories may not be necessary.  However, for proper healing, you will still need one Total Health Pack per day.

Examples of joint repair regimes: (All these nutrients are safe to take with each other, so you can mix and match until you find a regime that works for you).

Total Health Pack, MSM, Glucosamine, Hyaluronic Acid 

“Thirty days ago, I started the Kickstart program (which included the Total Health Packs) and Joint Support Program (Serrapeptase, MSM, Calcium Ascorbate and Glucosamine, Hyaluronic Acid) suggested by Megan.

I had been on a pharmaceutical medication for over 10 years for arthritis in my neck, back and hips.

Within days of starting the program, in which I came off sugar and grains, I became pain free and was able to come off the arthritis medication.” Michelle, Oakville, Ontario


Hi Brenda “I went for my first Bowen Technique yesterday right here in White Rock I’m blown away how such little manipulations made such a difference in such a short time I feel so much better and most of my pain has gone. So between the Bowen, Serrapeptase and glucosamine, I am off those Advil now. So once again a huge Thank You!!! So happy cheers Jenny M.

Total Health Packs 

“Well I have been on the Total Health Packs for over a month and it has made such a difference. I started feeling better as soon as I started with your vitamins and got off the ibuprofen. I did not have to take Serrapeptase as my pain was handled just fine with the Total Health Pack. I’m still in the final stages of recovery and will stick to your suggestions for as long as it takes.

I finally got an X-ray done and I indeed had 3 cracked ribs.

It’s hard to listen to people poo-poo taking vitamins after having experienced firsthand how well they work. Thank you for all your help.” Tess L

Total Health Pack/MSM

“My knee is soooooo much better.  I think the combination of quitting my job, the Total Health Packs from Maximum Results and seeing a kinesiologist is really helping me. No pain pills for me.” Joan R


I have been using this for the last month – for what I think is a ganglion on the outside of my wrist.  I believe it has reduced in size by about half by taking Serrapeptase 120,000s morning and evening.” Joanne

The Miracle of Serrapeptase

Several years ago my dad was diagnosed with calcification in his shoulders. His pain steadily increased but he didn’t let me know how bad he was getting.

Things escalated until his pain was severe and steady. He couldn’t sleep, he couldn’t sit, and nothing was helping. He couldn’t even get any relief from pain killers.

When he finally told me, I put him on about 360,000 IU of Serrapeptase every four hours. Before the product his pain rated 11 out of 10 (unbearable) and within 24 hours he rerated himself at 1 out of 10. Very impressive indeed! The Serrapeptase not only ate up the calcification in his shoulder, it worked as a pain reliever until the shoulder was completely healed.


I am currently taking extra MSM and Glucosamine and my knee is actually quite good – when I went to the Dr. I was having real problems but by the time I got my specialist appt the supplements and ice had started to work. I am doing Boot Camp with my daughter and was quite concerned that I wouldn’t be able to last but I am really pleased with the way it is going.” Linda, Victoria

My husband had excruciating pain in his hands. He has been living on pain killers. By going on MSM and glucosamine some of the pain subsided, but when he added the Serrapeptase his pain went away completely. He hasn’t taken pain medication since.” Joan H, Victoria

I wanted to send you a quick update on my hip, and let you know that all is well.  The mild arthritis in my hip is 100% better!

I can walk again, and my hip no longer aches!  I only added 1,000 mg of MSM and 1,000 mg of glucosamine to my AM Total Health Pack and then took another 2,000 mg of MSM and 1,000 mg of glucosamine and one calcium ascorbate after dinner.” Joan W, Victoria

Hyaluronic Acid/Serrapeptase

I had been living with chronic pain. I couldn’t lift my saddle onto my horse, in fact, I could hardly lift anything at all and I was waking up in the night from the pain.

I kept my wrists wrapped up in tensor bandages. I had tried braces, Tylenol, essential oils, massage, copper bracelets, magnetic bracelets, copper and magnetic bracelets together; nothing was working and I was really starting to get concerned.

Brenda said I needed Hyaluronic acid and Serrapeptase (I was already on the Total Health Packs and extra MSM). I started them right away. After the second day my wrists were not sore. I was surprised and pleased to say the least. After a week I trusted enough and went a day without the braces. I am so incredibly happy about this. I am lifting my saddle on my horses without any trouble at all. Holding the reins with no pain just seems so unreal. I still go to grab things and revert to a protective approach waiting for the pain that doesn’t come. WOW. Thanks Brenda so much. You have given me so much you cannot even believe how debilitated I was feeling. Thank you Thank you!” J.P. Red Deer


“I am always experimenting on my dear mother! She has had an arthritic knee for over a year, and I have tried many supplements on her for this annoying malady. Small improvements came with MSM, Calcium Ascorbate and Glucosamine, and the doctor wanted to give her a cortisone shot which she refused. Over the counter anti inflammatory creams did nothing. When I saw Boswellia listed as a new product in Brenda’s store, I thought, “Well let’s give this a try.” Well, oh my goodness, this WAS the answer for her knee! Overnight there was a 90% pain reduction and she could move it back and forth; prior it was frozen. I took her for groceries and before I had to lift her whole leg into the car; she put it in by herself after only taking two Boswellia! Overall, all her joints feel better she said. I am so impressed that I have ordered more.” Kathy Law, Alberta, Bowen Therapist and Yoga Instructor

MSM/Glucosamine/Total Health Pack/Serrapeptase

 “I ordered the MSM and the Glucosamine Sulfate from you and my husband is taking two of each both morning and night along with the Total Health Pack.

Prior to taking these, he would need to stand for several seconds and hang onto something before being able to walk. We went out for dinner on New Year’s Eve and when we were done (about two hours) he had to stand and hold onto the table for about 20 – 30 seconds before being able to walk. 

For many years he has been unable to lift his arms above his shoulders without significant pain. He always described “crunching” and aching in his shoulder joints.

After about two weeks on your supplements, we had gone to a movie (sitting for 2 + hours); he stood and walked down the stairs without the need to pause and hang on to the back of the seats or hand rail. 

He now can freely raise both arms above his head and behind his neck for a shoulder stretch – this is pain free movement. It has been years since he has been able to do this. He says he can still feel/hear the crunching in his shoulders, but it is no longer impeding his motion or causing significant pain. The crunching is also significantly less than what he had previously.

He is still on his first bottles of the MSM and Glucosamine Sulphate and he is taking the Serrapeptase (just started this one). The Serrapeptase has significantly cut down on the amount of other pain reliever he had been taking particularly since he has had the improvements in the functioning of his knee and shoulder joints. 

My brother (this week) just had shoulder surgery and I’ve ordered him these products as they have worked so well for my husband. We are so excited about the results we have seen, we tell everyone about how well your products have worked!

Thank you – your recommendations have made a significant difference in his quality of life!”
