Customer Story — Gene Stout: “A Tiny Bit is All it Takes”

Gene Stout of Rockwood,Tennessee, is looking forward to a pain-free retirement in the near future thanks to Milkweed Balm. He discovered Milkweed Balm when a friend recommended it for his intense shoulder pain. A skeptic, Stout wasn't quite sure it would work but decided to give it a try after having several reactions to pain medications. 

Desperate to sleep on his left side, one night Stout opened up the Milkweed Balm and rubbed it on his shoulder. "I put the cap back on and by the time I walked to the bathroom, I had no pain in my shoulder. I couldn't believe it," said Stout. He's been so impressed by Milkweed Balm that he has ordered several jars to share with friends. 

Prior to learning about Milkweed Balm, Stout had been going to the doctor to get shots in his shoulders. "My shoulders didn't develop in the womb. I have a hole in each shoulder blade, and they are very thin, so they don't give me the support I need to do the work that I do," Stout explained. Stout has worked in maintenance the last 20 years. He puts a lot of stress on his shoulders, which results in a lot of pain.

Stout is currently home recovering from rotator cuff surgery but plans to get back to work as soon as he heals until he's ready to retire. He rubs Milkweed Balm where the stitches are to ease the pain. He has found that he can wait longer in between applications since he started using it almost 2 years ago.

"I started using it twice a day, and now I only use it as needed," he said. "A tiny bit is all it takes. I ordered the 4 oz. container, and my wife and I have shared the first jar for over a year and a half. It's wonderful. You'll never know what it is like to live without pain until you try Milkweed Balm."
