People may have chronic joint pain and inflammation, you may think about some supplements. It can help a lot. Sometime my thumb pain, or my wife ankle old injury , we will eat some after meal, pain gone in a week.
But people feel lot of bloating after that. I graduated from Tianjin Medical university in Pharmacy,we learned half west medicine, and half chinese herb medicine, I give you some idea how to choose the smooth one for your stomach.
The key is Sulfate or Hydrochioride, very simple:
Glucosamine Sulfate, Chondroitin Sulfate will be better
Glucosamine Hydrochioride, Chondroitin Hydrochlorid , are more bloating.
FYI: In TCM, Sulphur is "Fire in the Fire", is a very warm chemical in herb as well. It is like you cook something bitter vegetable(in TCM is cold) put Ginger to balance. Maybe that's the reason.

Sleep direction and your health
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, most are the energy balance and material base.
There is one of the greatest TCM doctors Simiao Sun（541-682）. Said:" for human，head toward the east in Spring and Summer, toward the west in Fall and Winter." He lives 141 years old
Because the sun will lead energy， we follow the sun. In spring and summer head east will help wake up early, do more exercise and increase metabolism, sweat and detox. Good for energy balance.
In fall and winter, people need deeper sleep to store energy and repair body. Good for body material base. Like tree grow roots in winter. Next year we will more energy
I tried different directions for many years. I feel this way is very good for me.

Summer or headaches, self-massage tricks
this is not an ad. it is unique tricks from my year's massage practice and TCM learning.
Help yourself with your hands. sometimes I talk on the phone to my friend, they help themself.
When you start A/C, in very early summer, You may easily get uncomfortable after in an A/C room. headaches, no appetite(you need a ginger slice).
it is not a natural way to use A/C, your body wants to sweat, but suddenly the cold air blow you, leave your neck muscles spasm. Heart already beating fast, for more sweat, but neck muscles squeeze, because they feel cold, don't sweat, don't want extra blood, then your brain feels confused, you get headaches, so the body wants to slow down.
1. work on the neck and scalp 10mins (pic1). it feels good.
2. pic2, 10mins front neck muscles(SCM), in the middle of the rope, should have a big knot inside. slowly and gentle work on it. it makes the spine tilt, press the nerve at the back of the neck. only gently work on one side at one time. if you feel uncomfortable touch it, don't do it.
if your back of muscle uncomfortable as well. find the knots rub your middle of the chest bone. you will burp.
3. pic3, it will be a lot of knots on gluts, for people always a headache. so use your hands or tools to work on it, until warm and smooth. The next day headaches go away and also can help them at least one or two weeks free headaches until they sitting too much have knots on gluts again.
in Tcm, acupuncture will put the needle on the feet, but it hard to find the small knots and release them by hand. too much pain :)
(not guarantee results, headache may have a lot of different cause, also like high blood pressure, or tumour, you need to see doctors)
