hi welcome,
first of all amway products are not medicines . they are only food supplements.
at this age instead of going for surgery why you cant go for any alter native therapy?
since ayurveda the traditional treatment is there for osteoarthritis .
consult one educated doctor with practice,since so many quakes are there.
if not possible write to me in detail i will guide you
thanking you

Meaning of Medicine: Medicine is the science and art of healing. It encompasses a variety of health care practices evolved to maintain and restore health by the prevention and treatment of illness.
Medicine can be your home made food, active drug or a food supplement.

Nutrilite products are very good and it they can cure any problem like Allergy, Acidity , heart attack, stroke, Cancer, Diabetes, joint pain, Migraine, sinus or any kind of Infection (very common throat infection).
But you should take this product under guidance of certified Nutritionist and do some regular exercise.
There is no miracle so at the age of 72 yr it will take some time to cure the problem.

I have personal experience for this product. Go ahead but continue the prescribed allopath drug along with these products for some time and then you can slowly discontinue allopath drug.

welcome to HealthcareMagic
At 72 yrs osteoarthritis is very common for a female.So she has to take treatment reguarly and the best thing she should take is supplements of calcium and vitamins.Amway products are not medicines but they are food supplements so as a supplement you can give her cal-mag ;daily and if possible glucosamine but they are also costly especially glucosamine and it should help her.While I write this to you please do understand that these supplements are in no way replacement for the pain killers or other drugs prescribed by the treating doctor.
Take care.
