I chose to join the AstonRX program to lose weight and particularly reduce body fat. I exceeded my expectations with both but it’s another benefit that I was most excited about. I am susceptible to a hereditary condition called Dupuytren's contracture which according to Wikipedia is ‘is a condition in which one or more fingers become permanently bent in a flexed position. It usually begins as small hard nodules just under the skin of the palm. ... Prior to the program I had the nodules and they could be quite stiff and painful. I also had other sore and stiff joints from old sporting injuries. By the end of week 2 of the program I found that there was no pain or stiffness in my hand and I noticed that a lot of the other sore spots I had put up with forever felt a lot better. I have now just completed the 28 days, I still have the nodules on my hand, which are only noticeable by me, but they are reduced and not painful and the pain in my other sore spots continue to be better than they have for many years. The program has worked well for me. I found the first week very hard as my body became used to the program, but it was well worth sticking with it as I felt and continue to feel better than I did prior to the program once I got through it.
