Monika Haas Hi. My name is Monika, and I would like to share my testimony and my experience in taking mangosteen juice and to tell you what it has done and is continuing to do for me.

It all started while I away at school, in the fall of September, 2000. I had just come through a severe battle with asthma, and my doctor had prescribed Prednisone, a steroid drug, to help me over the attack.

It was only four days after coming off the Prednisone that the symptoms of my illness began to appear, and, to this day, I strongly believe that the Prednisone I was on, though it was for only a short time, was the reason behind the why of how I became sick and also the reason on how it all happened so quickly.

It all started with the headaches. I would get these tremendous and quite severe headaches, which I later learned were migraines, and then I began to experience neuralgia (nerve) pain throughout my whole body. The pain was so bad that I would experience these spasm-like attacks, and at times it was like having a seizure, the attacks were so strong.

I experienced pain throughout my whole body, from stabbing pains like a knife being jabbed into me, to fire burning like sensations.

The numbness was what scared me the most though because I lost so much feeling in my arms and legs that they literally felt like dead weights, and I could not even feel my legs, much less lift them, because they felt like blocks of concrete tied to my bed.

This is all happened within a very short period of time, and then I was sent home, after just a month into my first semester at school, to get to the root of the problem, but I was so weak and in so much pain by the time I left, that I had to have the assistance of a wheelchair just to get around campus.

My roommate, classmates, the students, staff, and everyone at the school were so wonderful to me, loving me through it all, and doing all that they could to help me, but it just wasn't enough, so I had to leave to seek the treatment that I was so desperately needing.

We went to the Cleveland Clinic, and it was there that I was given a thorough exam by the Chief Rheumatologist and an intern student, and, at the end of those two, very long and painful hours, I was finally given the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia (Fi bro my al' jah), which is a very painful condition that affects both the muscles and nervous system.

My case though was one of the most severe cases that doctors had ever seen and not just because of the fact that I was so young (22 years old), but because the symptoms had come on so quickly and weakened me so much, to the point that it had put me in a wheelchair.

I was in the wheelchair for two months off and on because of the pain and weakness, but I learned through physical therapy how to control and strengthen my muscles.

I was later to be diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), migraines, insomnia, restless leg syndrome (RLS), anxiety disorder, chronic pelvic pain and ovarian cysts. Among those things, I also have eczema, lactose intolerance and asthma.

To everyone's surprise though, I returned to school following Christmas break, but that summer, at the end of the school term, I was asked to not return the following term due to all the physical problems I was having.

The school I was attending was going to be undergoing some changes, and the pace would be much quicker, so they felt that with the change of pace and reduced numbers of staff members that it would be too difficult for me to keep up my studies and manage my health at the same time.

Since then, I have been on numerous meds, such as Ambien, Welbutrin, Effexor, Imitrex, Diltiazem, Relpax, Zomig, Tylenol 2-3, Darvocet, Vioxx, Celebrex, Bextra, Soma, Lidoderm Patch, and ActiQ, among others which I can't remember.

Currently I am on Trazadone, Singulair, Albuterol, Advair, Cymbalta, Lorazepam, and Vicodin, and since I've been taking the mangosteen juice (2005), I have come off a total of 4 1/2 different medications, two within the last year, and half of one in the last two months (Sep./Oct. '07), which happens to be what I take to help me sleep through the night.

As long as I continue taking the mangosteen juice, I know eventually I will soon be able to come off my sleep medicine one hundred percent, and that will be the day to shout.

Where I've been and where I am now is an absolute miracle, and I thank God because, without the mangosteen juice in my life, I would not be the person that I am today.

I strongly encourage you, those especially that have Fibromyalgia or any other type of chronic pain condition to try this juice!

I can't say that it's a cure all or that you will have the same results, as everybody responds differently, but when you compare the juice to taking medications that can have life-altering effects on your body, the mangosteen juice far outweighs the risks of a damaged liver, plus there are no side effects as it is completely natural, with no added preservatives or sugars.

Also, when you think of the cost, you really can't compare it to the price of living a life of health. In my eyes, I really cannot afford to even consider not taking in the benefits of the mangosteen juice. Mangosteen juice gave me my life back, and God is using this, I believe, to give me the gift of healing.

I have tried various vitamins, supplements, minerals, and almost every kind of natural tonic there is out there, but nothing compared to the mangosteen juice, and nothing could even begin to compare to what I have experienced first hand with the mangosteen.

I started out slow, but increased it over time, and the more I took, the more results I saw, so by the time I reached two months in taking the juice, I was taking 4 ounces three times a day, which was a total of 12 ounces daily, and I noticed that the headaches were slowly disappearing, and soon they were no more, and I realized for the first time in 5 years that I was headache free, and not only was I headache free, but I was also sleeping better, my quality of sleep had improved, and I was able to decrease my meds.

My restless leg syndrome (RLS) was gone, along with the Costochondritis, otherwise known as Tietze's syndrome. All of that is now gone! Also, the panic attacks, which were quite severe at times, are now quite rare.

In the last two years, I have come off a total of 4 1/2 different medications, and I say 4 1/2 because I have been able to cut the last of my sleeping pills in half and still sleep through the night! I still have pain. I still have my days, but God is healing me, and I believe one day that I'm going to be able to tell you the pain and the meds are no longer a part of me.

I hope my testimony has touched you in some way, and if you are someone that struggles with this crippling condition, I pray that you will open yourself to trying this amazing product. If you know anyone that could benefit from this powerful xanthone beverage, please share this information with them and help them change their life and the lives of others.

Update: Currently I am still taking the prescribed medications for the asthma, and a couple other things, but since taking the Mangosteen juice (2005), I have come off a total of 6 -7 different medications, which includes all pain and sleep prescribed medication.

Where I've been and where I am now is an absolute miracle, and I thank God because, without the mangosteen juice in my life, I would not be the person that I am today. I strongly encourage you, those especially that have Fibromyalgia or any other type of chronic pain condition to try this juice! I can't say that it's a cure all or that you will have the same results, as everybody responds differently, but when you compare the juice to taking medications that can have life-altering effects on your body, the mangosteen juice far outweighs the risks of a damaged liver, plus there are no side effects as it is completely natural, with no added preservatives or sugars.

In my eyes, I really cannot afford to even consider not taking in the benefits of the mangosteen juice because it is what gave me my life back, and it was a gift God used I believe to give me the gift of healing.

I have tried various vitamins, supplements, minerals, and almost every kind of natural tonic there was out there, but nothing compared to the mangosteen juice, and nothing could even begin to compare to what I have experienced first hand from this fruit, because there was nothing I ever tried that even gave me the slightest bit of hope till I discovered (through my dad) the benefits of this God-given fruit.

I did start out slow dosage wise, but increased it over time, and the more I took, the more results I saw, so by the time I reached two months in taking the juice, I was taking 4 ounces three times a day, with a gallon of distilled water, and I noticed that the headaches were slowly disappearing, and soon they were no more, and I realized for the first time in 5 years that I was headache free, and not only was I free from the headaches, but I was also sleeping better, my quality of sleep had improved, and I was able to decrease my meds. for the first time since my diagnosis. Along with sleeping better, my restless leg syndrome (RLS) was gone, along with the Costochondritis, otherwise known as Tietze's syndrome. All of that, including the panic attacks, are now gone. Completely.

I would like to add that not everybody has to drink the amount that I did in order to see results. My case was one of the more severe cases, and the typical person only takes 1-2 oz. at a time. Also, If you are in any way hesitant because you've become discouraged with trying other things and have seen no results, remember there is always HOPE. I thought I had no hope, but I discovered God had something out there for me, and I'm so glad my dad didn't give up in getting me to try his crazy juice. I hope my testimony has touched you in some way, and if you are someone that struggles with this crippling condition, I pray that you will open yourself to trying this amazing product. If you know anyone that could benefit from this powerful xanthone beverage, please share this information with them and help them change their life and the lives of others.

Here to offer you HOPE & HEALING for the future,
