Fibromyalgia is called an autoimmune disease closely related to
rheumatoid arthritis. It is an inflammation of the muscles and
connective tissue. It is extreme fatigue, difficulty sleeping, and
intense pain. The pain went deep all the way to the bones. If anyone
would shake my hand or hug me or even bump into me I would cry.
I spent most of two years curled up on the couch with ice bags because ice helped numb the
pain. I homeschooled my two children for twelve years - many times right from the couch.
Pain woke me up at night. I couldn''t roll over by myself. It hurt to ride in a car. Often my
legs were without feeling and my feet pulled under. The pulling went all the way up my back
and I had severe headaches that seldom let up. I went through the polio clinic in Houston,
TX to try to find out why I had so much trouble walking; My hands pulled up too so that I
could barely use them.
After ten years, seventeen doctors, every test they could think of and thousands of
dollars later, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in May 1994. There is no cure - only drugs
to control the symptoms.
I asked God what was going on here and what to do. Since His WORD is
medicine, and it is health and healing and LIFE, I took His WORD like one would take a
prescription from the doctor. I looked up healing scriptures and spent hours every day - and
still do - taking them morning, noon, and night like medicine. I read them out loud, listened
to and meditated the WORD, putting it in my eyes, my ears, my mouth and my heart. When
I heard about Barleygreen in 1996,1 believed that was an answer from God to heal me
through good nutrition. I took Barleygreen from Aim faithfully. I also took Just Carrots and
Redibeets and later added Herbal Fiberblend for cleansing - all from AIM. As I kept
increasing the amounts I got better. Finally, I doubled up on Barleygreen to 6-8 TBSP a day
and then within a few days all my symptoms were gone. I am still well now 2 years
and 6 months later.
I read about Barleygreen and found out it is rich in the nutrients and enzymes my
body needs. It is particularly high in magnesium, which my muscles needed. Its chlorophyll
makes it anti-inflammatory, which is why it helped with the pain and inflammation. I once
ran out of Barleygreen and used other green formulas - many symptoms started returning.
I do well today on 3-4 TBSP Barleygreen daily as maintenance.
A side benefit -1 have had chronic asthma (not related to allergies) all my life
since a little girl. I took a lot of medicine but now I am down to almost none. My goal is to
be off all my asthma medicine. Also, my eyesight improved. A year ago I could not thread a
needle but now I see perfectly. I do not wear glasses.
We all pay for our health one way or another. We can pay to eat healthy now, or
we may pay the doctor or hospital later. Life is short. Life is precious. I thank God for giving
me my health back.
