I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease three years ago. Prior to that the only health problem that I had was migraine headaches. In the fall of 2001, my condition became much worse. I was unable to sleep more than an hour at a time and was up and down all night. I awoke each morning extremely stiff throughout my complete body. I would run hot water over my hands until I was able to actually turn the shower on to take a hot shower massage or take a hot bath. I tried everything that I could think of and anything that anyone suggested.
Finally in Oct, my doctors put me on disability from work because I could not stand up straight or walk without holding onto a wall or rail. Additional medicines were added. I was now taking 13 medicines and not getting very much relief. I was taking anti-inflammatories, 2 different anti-depressants, medicine for Irritable Bowel Syndrome, muscle relaxants, 3 different pain medications, medicine to put and keep me asleep at night and 2 different inhalers for the COPD plus migraine medicines and finally medicine to overcome the stomach problems all the other medications had caused.
I thought my life, as I had always known it was over. I decided that I had to find a way to "become" myself again. Then afriend of mine sent me a bottle of mangosteen juice. After 1 month on mangosteen juice, I'm no longer taking any prescribed medication. I am pain free, my depression is gone. I sleep all night every night instead of fighting to fall asleep and waking constantly all night and I have so much energy!
