My name is Heidi Catlett and I am writing this story to discuss my experience with Mangosteen Juice. This story is not fiction and I am telling it with 100% conviction. This is for the good of every other person that is suffering, as I was just 3 months ago. I will start with a little background and medical history, and I hope you will find this story inspirational and take the steps needed to find a better and healthier life. My life is now richer then ever, because I did.
I was diagnosed 8 years ago with fibromyalgia, and at this time the disease was not well known and many medical doctors did not even believe that it existed. Because of this, I convinced myself there was no way I could possibly have this disease. I was only 22. There must have been a mistake. I continued to see doctor after doctor, searching for a reason for my constant pain and fatigue. I was tested for multiple different problems including arthritis, MS, a few different bone disorders and a few others that I can't recall. I have been hospitalized over 25 times for different problems. I received CAT scans, MRI's, Spinal Taps, and what felt like gallons of blood work. I seen over 50 different doctors and specialists over the next 5 years, and every test and every doctor came back with the same result, negative.
During those 5 years I was unable to do many of the things that a person in her early 20's should be able to do. Including play sports, visit socially with friends, or even hold a job. Every single aspect of life required extreme effort and acceptance of pain. I was always tired and always sick.
Summer of 2002
In 2002 I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia again. I was 27 years old and there was far more research on this disease available, so I began to research methods to help relieve my suffering. I began taking pain medicines for the pain, prescription anti depressants for sleep, and multi vitamins for the fatigue. I went to gyms and tried to build muscles in the areas that hurt, but I could not keep on a regular routine due to the pain and fatigue. I eventually quit going to the gym and left the disease in the hands of the medications and my doctor. Over the next 4 years I started to feel very dependant on my medications. At one point I was on 8 different prescription medications and 3 over the counter drugs for pain and sleep. Even with these medications, I could not sleep at night. I would wake up 2 to 4 times a night and lay and stare at the ceiling. On the occasion when I would get a full night sleep I needed help getting out of bed in morning, because of the amount of pain and stiffness in my back. There were some days that I would wake up and could not move at all. I would lie in bed screaming in pain. Some days the pain would subside to a point I could get a few things done and other days I would be in bed all day fighting the pain.Everyday I got worse and worse, I began to worry that I would be in a wheelchair by age 30. The toll of my disease began to wear on my emotions and those around me that I loved.
I am now 29 years old and have 2 children, Dylan 7 and Sadie 12. My two children were so used to me being sick everyday or not being able to walk, that they would come into my room and ask if they could get me anything. I began to have mood swings and would easily lose my patience with my kids and my husband. I was worried that I would push my family away, so one day I sat my family down and explained to them that I was sick and when I yelled or lost my temper it was not their fault and that I still loved them. The pain I saw in there eyes and their caring love nearly broke my heart. I felt so horrible that my kids had to take care of me at such a young age, I couldn't even take them for a walk or to the park, because I was either too tired or in too much pain.
I became so depressed because of the life I was missing and would never get back. Most days I would lie in bed and cry. I started slowly getting worse everyday. I had more pains and more fatigue until I was hospitalized again. At the start of 2006 I was taking 2000 mg of viccodin, 2400 mg of ibuprofen and sleeping meds every single day! I was getting worried that I was going to get hooked on the meds and did not want to become addicted on top of everything else. So I would attempt getting through the day without pain killers, but I couldn't do it.
March 2006 - Mangosteen Juice
In November of 2005 we received a call from my brother-in-law in Nebraska and he was talking about a new product on the market that was doing wonders for people with all sorts of aliments and problems. I thought he was crazy. How could a fruit juice help? I was talking medical prescriptions meant to cure diseases and seeing doctors with years of schooling and experience. There was no way that a simple fruit juice could do anything at all. After three weeks of calls and research I decided to try the Mangosteen Juice.
One week later I received two bottle of Mangosteen Juice to drink and sample. During these two weeks I noticed a slight increase in energy, but nothing that made me say "WOW, This is the answer!"
During the next few weeks my husband convinced me to give Mangosteen Juice a longer trial, so we signed up for a monthly auto ship of 1 case. On Feb 18th, 2006 we received our first case of Mangosteen Juice and I began to drink 3 OZ in the morning and 3 OZ in the evening every day. Within a week I had more energy, within a month 1 was able to get out of bed everyday (WITHOUT HELP!), and started to live my life again. Within 2 months I was off ALL of my medicine! I was in disbelief. I could not believe that this great tasting juice was working. I was amazed, I didn't have back pain, or leg pain, and I was going for walks. I have been able to take my kids to the park. I have started working out and losing the weight that I gained while on all the meds. Now, when my friends and family see me now they are in disbelief at how great I look and how much energy that I have. I will be 30 next month and feel better than I have in 10 years.
I can't even express how I feel about the Mangosteen Juice and the positive changes it has had on my life. I wake up everyday with renewed hope that I will live a full and happy life. Mangosteen Juice has changed my life and the life of my family. I would encourage anyone that has doubts about this amazing drink to try it. Give it a fair shot and maybe it will change your life too.
