Before I flew to the Philippines last year, my hubby was already suffering from inflammation and swelling in his feet, legs and back. I was staying there with my family and did not realize that his condition was getting much worse. If he had told me, I would never have left him. When I got back in the middle of May, his pain had become so intense and wide spread that he was unable to sleep or eat since most food was causing a severe reaction. He ended up in the hospital just a few days after I got back home and since then has been on heavy duty pain killers.
His doctors were unable to specifically diagnose or treat his condition properly so he was forced to do it himself. The cause of the swelling and inflammation were aggravated by things that he ate, especially foods that contained a lot of salt and particularly MSG. Most of the drugs that the doctors were giving him also aggravated his problems severely. Since then, he has been trying a lot of different natural supplements to try to reduce the inflammation and swelling but has not been able to find anything that works really well for him yet. He also tried over the counter products but they had little to no effect.
We recently came across a product called nopalea that contains rare and potent antioxidants that have been scientifically proven to help reduce inflammation. It is an anti inflammatory drink derived from the flowers of a cactus plant. It is said to taste like a fruit juice. The twelve year old company that produces it is now offering a free bottle of Nopalea to everyone who visits the site and calls their 1-800 number. You only have to pay $9.95 shipping and handling. If you are interested in giving Nopalea a try, give them a call and get your free sample on its way.
