I signed up the end of November 2005 to be a Distributor and started on the juice around the 1st of December. I was very anxious to see if this product would help me. I am on full social security disability at age 52. I have Osteo Arthritis of the knees and hips and Fibromyalgia. I took extra strength Tylenol every day and first started out on Ultracet prescription pain pills until they did nothing for me anymore. We then went to 10 weeks of Hyalgen injections in both knees with no success and then Arthroscopy surgery on one knee. They don’t want to replace knees when you’re under 60 no matter how much pain you’re in. Winter time is worse with the cold weather and I’ve had to use a cane to help me around when I’m so stiff I can hardly get around. I then went through another round of knee injections last summer right before we went on vacation and this time they helped but the pain never went away, it just made it easier because I wasn’t so stiff… I was on Celebrex 200mg twice a day, Vicodin as needed which was pretty often and Zanaflex which is a muscle relaxer. I also have other health issues. I have Barrettes Esophagus which can become cancerous and I take Prevacid for that. I have Cervical Dystonia in my neck caused by twenty years of neck movement caused by Tourettes… I go to KU every three months and have Botox injections into my neck muscles. (Anywhere from 6-15 at a time)
Well, here is the good news. I was a little skeptical, but after about 60 days of taking 6oz of juice a day (broken up 3 oz at a time) I am off my Celebrex completely and haven’t taken any prescription pain pills since Christmas and very few Tylenol. I forgot to mention I have suffered from Migraines for 15 years and haven’t had a bad headache since I’ve been on the juice. I also take Lipitor for High Cholesterol.
My goal is to be off my Prevacid and Lipitor within the next several months. I now take 2oz every morning and 2oz mid afternoon. My husband is taking it for his back pain and my daughter who is 14 years old and a cheerleader is taking it and it is helping her with her aches and pains of cheering and tumbling. Our family is committed to mangosteen juice and I don’t think I will ever be without it. I have truly been blessed by mangosteen juice.
