Donna's Story

Donna H. recently got in touch with us to let us how much our Send It! Salve 200 has helped her with chronic pain, and so we reached out to her to get a few more details.


Hypatia: Sounds like you’ve been dealing with chronic pain for most of your life. Can you tell us the story?

Donna: Well, I grew up in the country. Riding horses… four wheeling… a total tomboy. By my 20s I had chronic back pain. As I got older, it got worse. In my early 30s, I was diagnosed with spinal stenosis. They sent me to specialists… who sent me to pain management... they couldn’t help me. Around this time I was also diagnosed with fibromyalgia. None of the prescription meds I was on were helping. The dosage was enough to sedate a damned horse. It was muscle relaxers, narcotic pain pills... I felt horrible. There were days I couldn't even walk to the bathroom. The pain was so bad I was being snapped out of sleep if I moved at all. I would have to crawl on the floor crying to get there.

Hypatia: That sounds terrible. What’s your situation like now?

Donna: Currently my worst pain has been in my knees. Walking has been like being stabbed repeatedly in the kneecap—kinda hard to do your job if you can’t stand. I work in customer service, so I’m on my feet at least 10 hours a day. I have tried all the over the counter creams, roll-ons, lotions, Tiger Balm, Icy Hot, Bengay, all of those kinds of things.  

Hypatia: And none of those seemed to work for you, so you ordered our Salve?

Donna: I was on Facebook and saw Jarrod’s post about Hypatia Extracts and thought: I'm at the end of my rope. I am willing to try almost anything to feel better. So, I ordered the Send it! Salve. It got here quickly. The website was easy to use. The people are great.

Hypatia: How did it go once you got the Salve?

Donna: I admit i was a bit nervous to try it, but i rubbed a small amount on one knee and waited. Within about 5 minutes, all the sharp horrible pain in that knee was gone. I was walking normally on that knee.  It was amazing. I have used it for my back pain, my knees and my pounding feet and it has worked beautifully. 

Hypatia: That’s wonderful to hear! We’re so glad that it’s helped you so much!

Donna: It has! The product is amazing. I have shared with friends and recommended you to family. Thank you so much. It’s so nice to be pain free.
