Testimonials Part 2

ASTHMA

About 8 or 9 years ago I contracted environmental/chemical asthma (sick building syndrome does exist and it's cheaper for corporations to pay off victims than to fix the problem). I was diagnosed with a 45% permanent disability in each lung.

Until this happened I was pretty healthy. I sang for almost 20 years with a well-respected choral group and was a volunteer cuddler in the neonatal intensive care unit at the University of Connecticut Health Center. I only bring these up because I had to give them both up. In both cases, the air quality in the buildings was poorer than my lungs could handle. Yes, my lungs were in worse shape than preemies on oxygen. I took theodur twice a day - a lovely drug. My blood levels had to be tested fairly regularly because there's such a thin line between toxic and therapeutic dosages.

I owned four different inhalers. One went everywhere with me, because breathing isn't Optional. One was to be used regularly as a preventative and the other two were pretty much for recovery when (not if) I had an attack. One of these lovely inhalers worked beautifully (usually), but gave me thrush in my throat. Horses and AIDS patients also get thrush. When all else failed, I had to take a 10 day course of prednisone, an oral cortisone.

When I knew I would be taking the prednisone, I would offer a blanket apology in advance to anyone within firing range. That was just for the emotional effects, you don't want to know about the physical ones. My attacks could and were set off by: paint, perfume, smoke, scented candles and incense, cleaning products, excessive garlic and any other strong, or sometimes faint, odor. The easy ones lasted about a day or two, the bad ones took weeks, four inhalers and the prednisone. If I walked into a room that had been painted within the past month, I had to leave in less than 15 minutes or suffer a "bad" attack. My attacks are characterized by a deep, barking cough - mating season at Seaworld.

On the up side, all the coughing caused nodules on my vocal chords and now I sound like Brenda Vaccaro, Lauren Bacall or Wallace Beery, depending on the day. I couldn't go back to singing now, no matter what.

Bottom line - I started taking the OPC-3 a year ago. I've thrown out the inhalers, haven't taken any theodur for 11 months and 6 months ago spent 5 hours watching television in a room that was between coats in the process of being painted, with just the teensiest tightness in my chest that was gone by morning.

Take away my OPC-3 and your death will be soon, slow and painful.

I have been taking OPC-3 for several months and found my overall health improving greatly! However, in July, my asthma seemed to find a life of its own (I am surrounded by farmland, where crop dusting, burning, pesticide and herbicide use are commonplace). I was on Proventil, Intal and Azmacort inhalers, a dose of Singulair at night, and used both Vancenase and Nasalcrom. I still suffered with poor breathing capability, chest tightness (sometimes I would even say chest PAIN). Within 18 hours of drinking Ultimate Aloe (about 4 ounces spread throughout the day), I have been able to give up all six of these medications. Even though I, too, would kill if someone took my OPC-3 away, I would now also do the same for my Ultimate Aloe! Those of you with allergies should try it if you aren't using it regularly now. I hope this helps another as it has me!

OPC-3 and my fourteen year old daughter who had asthma and severe allergies since the age of 3 are the reasons I became a Market America distributor!!!!!

My mom in Conn. sent this strange bottle of "stuff" to her granddaughter living in MD., because she had heard many testimonies about positive results concerning asthma and OPC-3. The bottle sat on our counter for about 2 weeks, and my daughter didn't seem the least bit interested in drinking this thing that grandma sent.

I felt a little guilty that my mom had paid for this so I started to take the OPC-3.After one week the migraines that I suffered from since the age of sixteen were gone (I WASN'T READY TO ADMIT, IT WAS THE OPC) After two weeks and no migraines, I was ready to find out what was going on here. After three weeks I wanted to know about Market America........Now after I had attended meetings, and heard powerful testimonies myself regarding asthma and OPC,I made my daughter take this

This little girl had missed twenty-seven days of school last year, she always ended up with serious sinus infections (every year,) and has been rushed to the hospital by the school nurse in the past. She is a competitive gymnast, and this year during her state competition she was able to compete to her full potential, because she wasn't suffering from symptoms from allergies and wasn't having asthma attacks...

She won the Maryland state vault title in her age group as a level eight gymnast and placed third all around! She is doing great, even during one of the worst pollen seasons on record, she doesn't even have red itchy eyes and NO asthma attacks.

Does our family believe in OPC.................without hesitation YES!!!!!!!!!

QUESTION

John Farley [Market America "Unfranchise" Owner] Wrote:

I have a customer with a son that has ADD and wants to take OPC-3. I need to know if anyone has any customers like this or advise OPC ... He is 13 years old weighs 75 pounds and is currently on Ridilan and has side effects like can't sleep, won't eat. ...

ANSWER

John, this is my exact scenario that made me a MA distributor. My son was diagnosed with ADD in 6th grade. He was put on ritalin and had been on for almost a year. He too, started having the ritalin side effects after about 8 mos on medications, including mood swings when the medications wore off. A friend told me about OPC-3. I started him on them but didn't notice a difference until about 2 1/2 to 3 months in. then I dropped his morning dose of ritalin no one at school noticed a difference without his medications. We noticed a difference in mood. when school ended last year, I stopped all medications, & replaced them with: 2 caps of OPC-3 & 1 cap B-12

After a recent seminar by a Dr., I've added 1 cap of Calcium daily (mainly for the magnesium) and Vitamin C too. He is now 13 and is completely off Ritalin. He still complains about drinking his Isotonix, but he does it out of force of habit. I make sure of it! Kids will fight anything new. Don't let you customer give up because her son doesn't like the taste. I did start out mixing his Isotonix with 1/2 water & 1/2 apple juice.

Some concerns to share with your customer: Schools almost make it fun to be on medications at schools- my son got to leave class early to go to the office to get his ritalin before lunch. Some kids, including my son, thought that was "cool". I did not want my son entering high school on any medication. It just opens the door to the ease of taking other "drugs"- I know that sounds a bit crazy, but ADD & ADHD kids are much more impulsive/compulsive and therefore more susceptible to addictions (a documented fact). There are still concerns about long term effects of ritalin type drugs. I saw side effects within 6-8 months.

Good Luck –Ginnie Esary, Corvallis, OR
