Barbara's review
"I started using aloe vera juice 2 months go, I was in terrible pain in my hands, could not open a bottle of water or anything. After using aloe vera for about 2 weeks, my pain was almost non-existence. I was diagnosed with RA and tried the meds they put me on, which absolutely did nothing to alleviate my pain. I drank 4 ounces of aloe in the am and 4 in the pm. Thank God for Aloe Vera.

Barry L. Bond's review
"It has really come on this year (2011). I used to sit with my legs under me (right on up to age 49) and I preferred to sit that way. I actually stopped that a few months ago. The last 2 to 3 months, after sitting, I would limp -- and this limp even became rather severe -- though short-lived. The first few steps when I would get up would be severe limping, but after a few steps, I was fine.

I started drinking 3 ounces of Aloe Vera a day, and in less than a week, my limping stopped and it hasn't come back!

As Sherry Brescia (Great Taste, No Pain) says, our bodies KNOW THE DIFFERENCE and REQUIRE the natural ingredients! 3 ounces of a natural ingredient a day and I never limp any more, even after sitting for hours!

Jyotsna Saihjpal's review
"My mother-n-in-law has Arthritis for very long. She could hardly climb stairs or walk a distance. Even after walking a little bit, her knees ached badly. The only option recommended by doctor was knee replacement.

As suggested by a friend, after using Forever's aloe vera suppliments for around 3-4 months, she is experiencing great benefits. She can climb stairs easily, walk with ease though not much yet comfortably to do her own work and feels like having gone 5 years back.
Thanks aloe vera.

"2 years on Tramadol for pain in knees related to spurs, bursitis, and tendinitis. Even with pain pills, still hurting/limping. One week taking Georges distilled Aloe Juice (100%, no additives) and I have now been TOTALLY off pain pills and 85% pain free. Have been drinking Georges now for two months with continued success. Very happy. Also, Georges has no bitter taste."

John's review
"Having suffered with Arthritis in my right knee for 2 years or more and gradually worsening I had tried many things but resigned myself to soon be needing sticks to help me.

I have had just one litre of Aloe Vera Juice and the change is remarkable. I can outwalk friends and on my recent holiday in Corfu I walked many miles. I can now resume my dancing which my wife and I enjoy very much and even run upstairs despite my soon reaching the age of 70 with Bronchial problems

Ruth's review
"I have suffered from the condition Ankylosing Spondylitis since 1981. This disease is a chronic inflammation of the joints - mostly in the spine. The more common symptoms are pain and reduced mobility. Over the last three years the pain has been increasing, especially at night. Turning over in bed used to wake me whenever I wanted to move - momentarily, but sufficiently to disturb my night's rest. Prescribed medication helped but did not work as effectively as previously and therefore did not overcome the pain. I enjoy a busy life but two of my favorite activities involve considerable movement of the joints. I joined a brass band last year; however, blowing my instrument causes the chest joints to move more than ordinary breathing does. This made the pain worse, especially the day after band practice! In January this year I returned to my gym after a break of eighteen months to recommence a health and fitness programme only to find that, due to pain, there were several exercises I just couldn't do anymore. There were also others that I had to avoid to prevent intense pain the following few days.

I began to drink Forever Living Product's Aloe Vera Gel on March 4th. 2007. From April 18th, now drinking Forever Freedom, I increased the amount from 60 ml to 120 ml daily. Within a few days and since then, I have been pain free during the day and, more importantly, the night as well. I am not a great musician but I can enjoy a good practice or session without any pain at all, either while playing or during the days following. The level of workout I now do at the gym I would have only dreamed of in January. I've toned, strengthened, gained stamina and I feel great. My goal for next season...... Tennis! I am so relieved to be pain free at last - because long term pain really does wear you down.

Chris Terry's review
"Only been using aloe vera for two months. Currently pain, swelling and grating has been reduced. 60-100 mg/day of gel plus glucosamine chondroitin and MSM. This allows far more activity than before. There is also no requirement to wear knee bandage any more and I have been able to stop taking diclofenac tablets.
Cream with eucalyptus oil gave pain relief within hours.
"

Chris Terry's recommendations
"You just have to try it! I overdid it the first day when the pain went and suffered the next day. Remember it is not an instant cure for arthritis, but every aspect is better now, and improving all the time."

Jane's review
"I have just turned 60 and have suffered with Arthritis for a number of years. I was unable to grasp firmly with my fingers, climb stairs, or get out of a car or stand from sitting position without severe pain. In the autumn just over two years ago, I received a number of insect bites which were literally driving me mad with itching and irritation. A friend gave me some Aloe Gelly and told me to rub it in several times a day after fully cleansing the area. This helped immensely, and after a few days the bites and scarring had dissappeared. The main event, however, had only just begun.

I noticed that the hand I used to rub in the Aloe Gelly had become less painful. For the first time in years I could make a fist, and had strength in my fingers. I spoke to my friend, who further suggested that I should drink 2 to 4 ozs of the Aloe Gel, Juice or Berry Nectar twice daily and continue to rub the Aloe Gelly into the most painful joints.

After a couple of weeks, I felt hugely improved - so much so that I thought I was imagining this dramatic improvement. I decided to cut out all my prescribed drugs, including painkillers, in order to monitor whether there was really an improvement. I was amazed to find that I had no pain and could move freely. Starting to live a normal life for the first time in years, I also experienced the wonderful sense of well being which most aloe drinkers find.

I was trained as physiologist and worked in lung physiology and cancer research. My natural sharp skepticism present from the outset was laid to rest by the pragmatic incontrovertible results. I was out of pain, off drugs and felt great.
