Arthritis and Pain

Q. I am writing to you about a customer, who is the mother of a dear friend of my parents.
Laura is 85 years old, and has suffered with Osteo Arthritis in her back, and Rheumatoid Arthritis in her hands for about 50 years. Laura also has a pacemaker.

She has been taking 60 mls of Noni Juice before breakfast and before dinner (120 mls daily) for 11 weeks now. She is sleeping a little better in the early stages of sleep, however, wakes at 3 am in extreme pain, and is unable to get back to sleep. To date she has felt no relief from her pain symptoms.

She suffers with chronic pain particularly in her spine. She is bent over, and favours her right hand side. It is extremely painful for her to stand up straight, and to walk, and because of this she is quite house bound and does no exercise apart from her basic household duties. She lives alone and is a pensioner.

Laura is also taking Glucosamine, and Fish Oil. She does not like to take pain killers.

She is very positive, and is willing to persevere with the Noni juice. I would really appreciate any advice that may give her some hope for the relief of her pain in the future.

Thank you so much for your consideration in this matter.

A. Tell her to take 250 mls Noni Juice daily until the pain subsides then reduce it slowly to where the pain is managed. I hope this helps. Also lots of water (at least 2L/day if she can get it down.)
