I became very ill with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia in 2004. I could not open or close my hands because of pain. My knees and feet had so much pain that I could hardly walk. I had to retire from my career after 28 years and was virtually bedridden. I spent the next four years using drugs, diets, and any remedy I could find with no result. I used an IV treatment of Remicade, a drug to negate the inflammation for 2 1/2 years. I could move a little better, but never got rid of my pain. My immune system was noticeably weakening, because I would get sick very easily.
On December 1st of 2008, a friend gave me three weeks worth of healthy chocolate. I could feel that my pain was lessening and began to wean off the drugs and the IV treatment with approval from my doctor’s nurse. I continued to eat three servings of healthy chocolate every day. By the third month, I had lost 15 pounds and was feeling good.
On April 1st of 2009, I saw my Rheumatologist and he released me to try healthy chocolate instead of the drugs and IV treatment. I have been drug free since that day to now. I am able to move, cook, walk, write, play on the floor with my grandson, and so many things I thought I would never be able to do again.
I thank God for this pure, delicious way to get high doses of antioxidants into my body. No other avenue worked for me. Healthy chocolate is my gift of a healthy lifestyle. I am so grateful for the turn around in my life and my family.
Yay healthy chocolate!!!!
