Hello Discovery Digest Subscribers!!!

How come when we're injured, most of us completely forget what it feels like to be well; and when we're well, most of us are not concerned with being "preventative" to avoid getting injured again? What we've noticed over the last couple of years is that most people feel invincible until they observe their parents or loved ones experience injuries or physical setbacks. ActiveForever has been life-changing for all of us; our invincible ActiveForever team. As you know, we all try, and live by our own products. We have had such a fabulous time taking care of our health and learning new things that we do hope that our persistence with you can create the same effect! We'd like to encourage you to do something good for your health, break the routine and try something new every month. Your opinions do have a positive effect our coming achievements! Thank you so much for your continued support!

Erika L. Feinberg, Chairman
ActiveForever

Common Treatment for Sports Injuries (RICE) For a sports injury, or just an overtaxed hip that is causing discomfort, the best and fastest relief can be obtained using the a simple and easy to remember practice called the RICE regimen.
