Pulmonary Fibrosis - Rheumatoid Arthritis
This is my story and I would like to condense it but there is too much to tell, so please, bear with me. I'm 65 years old and I have been ill for 35 years. I have four (4) chronic diseases: Starting with Rheumatoid Arthritis that sat upon me when I was 30.
It was misdiagnosed for more than a year, so it got a good head start. Needless to say, that I have been through the gauntlet of rheumatoid medicine, even gold shots. Nothing worked so my doctor put me on Prednisone because I had developed a rheumatoid lung disease called Pulmonary Fibrosis. The prednisone helped my lungs and my RA so he told me that I would probably be on it the rest of my life.
Along with RA, I have severe Osteoporosis. In 1977 I cracked three ribs just from coughing. In 1982 I cracked four more ribs (from coughing). In 1999 I broke my arch in my right foot from stepping on the door sill wrong.
Even though I have been on prednisone since 1976, I have managed to get myself down to 4mg. per day.I also have developed Sjogrens Syndrome (a drying out of body tissue, i.e., eyes, skin, body fluids, etc.).
Next comes Graves Disease. In 2004, I became so ill that I prayed for God to end my life. I thought about suicide daily and begged my husband to kill me because I didn't have the courage to do it myself. I guess I put him through Hell. I lost weight (157 lbs. to 85 lbs.) I was in a deep depression and my eyes were beginning to protrude. I had tremors, my feet and ankles swelled so much that I had to buy men's slippers to wear to town. My body was racked with pain.
I had also been on Methotrexate and it made my stomach hurt so much and made me so sick that I asked my doctor if I could stop taking it for a while. Which I did.Then when Graves Disease came along (I didn't know I had it – I thought I was having a flare-up of the RA.) – I couldn't stand the pain any longer so I asked my doctor to put me back on Methotrexate. He said, “No.” Instead, he sent me to a specialist. He put me on hormone therapy for my thyroid and in a few weeks I was getting better.
But with my depression and pain, I was crying at least four hours out of every day, off and on. I couldn't even take a shower without crying from pain.Now, comes the miracle of Mangosteen! Three days after I started drinking the juice; I could sleep better (I had insomnia forever) and I had more energy. After the ninth day I noticed that I didn't have as much pain. I went from taking 600 mg. of Ibuprofen every four hours to every six hours. At this point I have been drinking the juice for just short of two months and I can go twelve hours without Ibuprofen before I start getting withdrawal symptoms. (Headaches, icky feeling and lots of pain in my knees.) After all, it took 35 years for my knees to get this way.
I had to go shopping around 7 o'clock in the morning in order to get an electric cart because I couldn't walk the stores. I had asked my doctor to help me get a scooter from Medicare, but now I don't want one. Yesterday, for the first time in I don't know how long, I did my shopping on foot. I won't tell you that it didn't hurt but... I made it!
My Granddaughter has been helping me with chores and doing the cooking for the past two years. I am so excited… I can now stand long enough to prepare and cook a complete meal.
I also do not cry in the shower anymore. I sing! With thyroid therapy and Mangosteen, my weight has stabilized at 115 lbs. I feel great and my family and friends, who really know me, can see a big difference. Thank you, Dr. J. B. F and Dr. K C for prescribing what I needed to help me. I truly believe that I wouldn't be here if not for you. Thank you, Gail, my dear friend for telling me about Mangosteen. And Thank you, Jim S., for showing me how and where to purchase it. Most of all, Thank you, Lord for giving me hope again.
Back Pain - Eyesight - Thyroid - Headaches - Allergies
When I first heard about Mangosteen juice I was very skeptical that it could have health benefits in so many different areas. However, I bought a bottle and my husband and I started drinking 2 ounces a day.
My husband had the first results. First his back pain disappeared and then his eyesight improved. We had bought 2 different mattresses in six months and after taking the mangosteen juice he had no more back pain. Next, he related to me that he could see detail on things that were before only blurry from a distance. Later, mangosteen juice cleared a patch of dry skin on his face. All his previous attempts to heal this skin on his face had
failed, but mangosteen juice turned it around in about a month.
I had been having trouble trying to get my thyroid regulated and after two weeks on the mangosteen juice noticed that I felt normal again. At that point I decided to try it on my 8 year old son. He has a condition called sensory integration dysfunction and I figured it couldn't hurt! I had forgotten about his migraine headaches.
After taking the mangosteen juice, they disappeared. I only realized it was the Mangosteen juice when he came home from school one day with a headache. It was then I remembered I hadn't given it to him that morning.
The two days I went without it and I noticed my allergy symptoms reappeared. I didn't really notice they were gone before that. I think most people notice what is bothering them, not the symptoms that are gone. My older son's allergy symptoms returned as well. Mangosteen juice has made an impact in all four of our lives.
I am sure it is helping us in so many ways we don't even know! We are thrilled that we have found [mangosteen juice]!

Pain - Hip Surgery - Asthma
Mildred says, "She is neither Lazarus nor the Blind Man, but she knows how they felt when they received their miracles." Mangosteen juice has given Mildred her life back.
After hip surgery in 2003, Mildred had to take painful $400 pain shots, but now she is pain free! Her asthma symptoms are gone, she doesn't need her walker anymore and she is no longer a recluse.

Chronically swollen finger
For a few years my index finger stayed swollen and stiff. I am an avid golfer and work in International business, and use my hands in my work extensively.
I have never found anything that would help my finger until mangosteen juice.
This may sound too unbelievable, but my friend who introduced me to [mangosteen juice] gave me about 2 ounces on a Friday morning and within a few hours I could feel the difference. On Saturday I took 2 more ounces and played 18 holes of golf without pain. One week later, and as a result of drinking only 1 ounce of [mangosteen juice] daily, I am having no pain, no inflammation, and full flexibility in the joint.

I have osteoarthritis in my right knee and am limited in my ability to walk. Whenever I sit down for any length of time, I have a difficult time standing up as my knee "locks" and I have to rise slowly until it unlocks and I have to walk slowly at first. It has been like this for three years.
After one week on the mangosteen juice (5 oz. daily) I suddenly realized I was standing up and walking normally. I had taken Celebrex ever since my knee scope almost three years ago. I take it once /day, but I’m going to see how I do without it for a few days. I have also been able to discontinue my antibiotic for my skin, another plus.

Rheumatoid Arthritis and Surgery Testimonial
My husband had rotator cuff surgery on the 2nd of June. He has been taking mangosteen juice since Feb. for his rheumatoid arthritis, and after the surgery, the surgeon commented that based on the damage he found, he was amazed there was minimal inflammation, and my husband didn't have the pain that he expected. I gave my husband 6 oz. of Mangosteen juice once he was out of recovery, and once we were home, I gave him another megadose. He had his 10 day follow up last Friday, and the doctor was amazed again because the entry wounds were completely healed, and my husband's range of motion was much better than he expected. His diagnosis of physical therapy, while normally would be 3-4 months, was changed to 5 weeks!!
I am now using my husband as my own personal "poster boy" for testimonials. HA!! It's helped his rheumatoid arthritis, and now it has helped tremendously for his surgery.
