Living Out of Pain

Republish of June 28, 2012

I am writing this very personal story in hopes that I can help someone to get out of pain. For years I prayed and searched for an answer..and finally found it after much suffering. This is my story.

When I was in my late 20’s and early 30’s I was a health disaster. I had high cholesterol, was 50 pounds overweight, and suffered from chronic fatigue/fibromyalgia and unusually frequent migraine headaches. The fibromyalgia and migraines started back in 1988, coupled with strange symptoms of chronic leg pain, weakness, buzzing, tingling & numbness in my limbs. After visiting many neurologists, specialists of all kinds and even being hospitalized for a week for I.V. steroids,  3 MRI’s and numerous tests, everything from lupus to lime disease was ruled out and I was diagnosed with MS in 1992. I was walking with a cane because of the pain weakness in my legs, and was “prepared” by the medical community to someday look forward to being in a wheelchair.

I used natural remedies, homeopathic, chiropractic, nutritionals as well as numerous prescriptions. I learned through this process how to manage my pain, but never found anything that worked completely. People would bring me juices, and formulas and say “you have to try this I just know it will stop your pain and headaches”. Then……no results, or at least very little.

I have learned to manage pain and live with migraines all these years, and gotten much better through sheer determination. Living with serious migraines and chronic pain takes over your life. I would wake up with headaches, sometimes every day. It got so bad that I was afraid to go to bed at night. I felt like I was being poisoned in some way (a clue that always stayed in the back of my mind), and no doctor was willing to listen to that theory! I felt toxic! I was chronically constipated all these years, sometimes only eliminating twice a week. When I cleansed my body my symptoms somewhat subsided temporarily. Were the contents of my intestines poisoning me?

In late January 2007 the precious gift of a Very Special Water from Japan came into my life, and at first I had to temper my expectations because so many things had let me down in the past. My husband was excited for me to try it, because he is a back pain sufferer, having had 2 back surgeries and 3 knees surgeries. He was ecstatic to have pain relief in only 3 days, so I was willing to give it a fair try. Initially I must be honest, after drinking several gallons for a couple days, I felt like I had the flu. I was experiencing the best  (or worst) cleanse I had ever had, and was prepared to weather it. Although I felt like crap on the bottom of your shoe, I knew something was happening in my body!!  It was not so bad anyway, because I began to sleep better shortly after that, another benefit, and sleep for chronic pain patients is a top priority. Then I began to feel better and better, little by little. Soon I was sleeping  A LOT better, like 8 full hours with no waking, which was unheard of for me. Normally migraines would wake me at 4am. I was sleeping all the way until 8am from the night before! After about 2 months drinking the water, I noticed having tons more energy, and wanting to exercise. Me exercise? My body has always hurt so much that you could not even touch me in places or I would jump from the pain, never mind exercise! If you have fibromyalgia you know what I’m talking about.

I no longer wanted sugar or fast food, and started to crave eating healthier. The healthier I ate, the more I craved vegetables, fruit, grains etc… Same with this special water, I was (and am) craving it, and soaking it up like being in the desert for forty years!!  This water tastes like the best drink you’ll ever have….and I used to love soda, coffee, iced tea, juice drinks etc. Now all I want is ice cold 9.0! I drink 2 gallons every day. I know that sounds like a lot of water to some of you. Don’t worry about that right now.

After 5 months, I had lost 25 pounds, my cholesterol was down from 220 to 163, and my blood pressure was down from 140 / 90 to 120/68. I had not had a migraine in ….I can’t remember how long!! For me that’s a TRUE MIRACLE. I have very little pain, and feel fabulous! My husband and I being from marketing backgrounds, decided to get very serious about sharing the water with as many people as would listen. We knew we had our hands on something truly miraculous that could change the world! In addition to drinking it, we decided to make the 5 waters that our machine makes, “a way of life”. We cooked with it, cleaned our vegetables and kept them fresher for much longer with 11.5 , disinfected our countertops, cutting boards and refrigerator with 2.5 , watered our plants and softened our skin with the 5.5,  used 2.5 for sore throats, cuts and after brushing teeth, and 11.5 for reducing inflammation, cutting grease and removing stains. We found many more uses as time went on.

A quick illustration is a trip I took to California to visit my daughter and my little grandson Hunter who was only 2 at the time. I live in Utah and previous visits took place here, as I was not well enough to travel, mainly because I did not have the strength to walk through the airport without a lot of pain. I had been on a Very Special Water  from Japan about 4 months, and went to California, where she and I took a day trip shopping in a mall. Previously I could only walk for about 10 minutes and that was it for the day, maybe two 10 minute walks with a rest but that was really pushing it!

We went to the mall and walked and walked for about 3 hours without stopping. I was surprised at myself, but did not say anything. I just kept going because I felt like a NORMAL PERSON for the first time in 20 years. My daughter stopped me finally and said “Mom!! What’s with you? Who are you?! Is this even the same mom I know? You could NEVER walk around the mall like this!! Don’t you have to sit down? What’s up? What in the WORLD is different with you? What have you been doing?!!!!”

Of course I was very excited because this was the first confirmation to me that I was truly getting better! If I could feel it that was one thing, but if someone close to me could see it, that’s something entirely different. Needless to say she wanted to know all about the water, and bought a machine to put in her home. She began telling the world.

I will always be eternally grateful to my friends for sharing this amazing water with me, not only for this miracle in my health, but for the dramatic financial miracle it has given our family. We shared it with our closest friends who had arthritis, diabetes and just wanted to be healthier. The stories that started coming back caused our kitchen to fill up with people filling their bottles with free water. It was NUTS!!

It’s been 5 and a half years now since this precious gitft came into our lives. After sharing the machine with only about 25 people in the beginning, the message had spread to a global network of close to 10,000 healthy water drinkers. I’ve always wanted to do something that truly made a dramatic difference in people’s lives, and every single person who has become a healthy water drinker has later come back and said “thank you, this water has changed my life.” I love that! Many have dramatic stories that impact their lives and their family’s lives and you can’t ask for a more rewarding livelihood than than that.
