Ligaments, Tendons, Solomon Seal

Your advice is much appreciated. I am now interested in taking some SSR (solomon seal root). You said you have personally seen it used successfully--do you have any examples regarding the knee or shoulder? I would be really interested in hearing any cases you have come across. I understand if you’re bound by confidentiality.

Regarding the shoulder, one individual had a car accident, strained his right shoulder "reaching for something to grab onto" and was not able to raise his arm above his shoulder for several weeks. Physiotherapy was unsuccessful at increasing his range of motion without pain. With solomon seal root, 3 mls t.i.d. and essential fatty acids he noticed improvement in a few weeks and complete recovery after 2 1/2 months.

I have no personal experiences in my clinic with its use for knee injuries but have seen it repair IT band injuries in the same way as the case above. If such a case comes into my clinic, I will be certain to consider solomon seal root.
