I was diagnosed with Shingles in November 1996. They were centered on the left side of my head, forehead, and eye area. I was given an anti-viral to take care of the lesions, but was told by my doctor that I would have the shooting needle like pain for a year at least, and maybe for the rest of my life. I also was numb on the left side of my forehead, and was told that was due to destroyed nerve endings, and it would always be numb. The pain I felt on the left side of my head was like a cross between an ache and a burn. The doctor said that would come and go, and I would probably feel it more during times of stress. (Oh, oh -- stress was my middle name!) In January 1997, I was introduced to noni. I thought it sounded like a good product, and I placed by first order, not even thinking about my Shingles affliction. With my very first ounce, the shooting needle like pains disappeared. (They had been happening every 10 minutes, or so, since they had started nearly 3 months prior to starting on noni). I was impressed. Having only one bottle of noni, I ran out early in February. The aching, burning pain on the left side of my head began. I quickly reordered, and found that as long as I take noni, I don't feel that pain. Oh my, what would my life be like without it??? The most surprising thing happened after I had been taking noni regularly for about 2 years. I started having tingling sensations in the numb area of my forehead. To my amazement, the numbness has all disappeared, and the feeling has returned. Would you say something has repaired my nerve endings? I would, and I would say that something was noni. I would never quit using noni. What a wonderful gift God sent to me, right when I needed it most. I never had to suffer the excruciating pain so many people have told me they suffered with Shingles."
