My name is Glenna Wood. I am a 48 year old housewife and mother. In 1995 I started losing my health. I became very fatigued and started experiencing chronic pain in my joints. After seeing many doctors I was diagnosed with hepatitis C. I had a liver biopsy and was told at that time that I had liver disease and a high viral level. Interferon treatment was recommended and I started treatment right away. I responded to the interferon, but it caused a lot of negative side effects. Laying on the couch or the bed became the difference between my days and nights while on treatment. This flu like condition lasted through the whole year of treatment and along with foot and elbow surgery; the quality of my life was poor.
When I finished the treatment it was only 3 months till I had back surgery because of chronic back pain. I was just home from my surgery and the call came from my hematologist with the results of my blood test for the hepatitis C. I was told that the virus was replicating again and that I would need to go on treatment again. This time there was a study going on with interferon and ribavirin combined. I waited 2 months to recover a little more from the back surgery and then started the study. It was so hard to stay on this treatment for another year and this time it was worse. The anemia was too much to deal with and the bed ridden state was too familiar. The pain that I experienced was tormenting and the fever and flu like symptoms just continued on again for that next year.
After the second year’s treatment was over I was in remission of the hepatitis C and have continued in remission, thank God, for 5 years now. However my energy level and quality of life never came back. I battled pain and fatigue continually and felt like optimal health was something that was just out of my reach. Now I was dealing with aging and that brought on a new problem. My estrogen level started decreasing causing me to develop frequent urinary tract infections so my health was not getting any better even though I seemed to have gotten the hepatitis under control.
My daughter had many serious health issues too and she was the first to hear about the mangosteen juice. She started on the juice with amazing results and I was very happy for her and was encouraged that it might be able to help me too.
I started on the juice and soon noticed an increase in my energy. My mind has always been very active and wanting to accomplish things, but after the illness, my body would always argue and win and I’d do very little. All of a sudden I found myself doing just about anything that I wanted to do. I had a great sense of well being and I had forgotten what that felt like for so long. I would have been overjoyed to have just that one improvement in my health but soon I found myself being able to breathe again without taking massive doses of allergy medicine which I had taken since my early thirties. It wasn’t long until I noticed the arthritis pain was gone in my hands and I wasn’t having any urinary infections anymore. I can hardly comprehend how drastically my life has improved just by consuming this mangosteen juice for the last 5 months.
One very unexpected result that I just realized last week is that there is new hair growing where I have always had a receding hairline. I couldn’t believe it. There was half inch hair growing where there had been no hair. What a bonus after all the health improvements that I have experienced to get new hair growth too. Thanks so much for being introduced to this amazing product that has changed my life and given me so much hope for the future.
