Emphysema

Jim Eisnnicher

I have what the doctor calls the beginning stages of emphysema. Wow, if this is just the start I sure don't want to see the real thing. Having smoked for about 35 years my problem was not being able to climb stairs without having to stop and rest at each landing. Not being able to walk any distance without becoming winded. Not being able to go outside when its 85 or above to play with the grandchildren. These were things never thought of as I was destroying myself when I was younger.

I thought giving up smoking 5 years ago was a step in the right direction but the damage had been done and I just assumed that I was to live that way the rest of my life, short winded and feeling like I was going to pass out any time I over worked myself.

Moving ahead to February 2, 2004 I started drinking the mangosteen juice. Almost immediately I started to feel like I could breath again. I could climb stairs, work outside,and most important play with the grandkids. I'm not going to run any marathons just yet, but I am going to enjoy life doing the things I want to do.

Does the Mangosteen Juice work? I take 1oz, 3 times a day and if I miss taking it, my breathing becomes very rough.Yes, it works for me, but I can't say it will work for anyone else. But I would sure give it a try.
