“After moving into an old apartment in Florida, I developed a severe skin rash which I attribute to mold in the walls. The rash was from my neck to my ankles. Itched/burned beyond belief. Went to Urgent Care and received an injection of this miracle drug which is the only thing that provided relief.I had no side effects at all. Just gratitude to be taken out of my misery if only temporarily.”

For Rheumatoid Arthritis “Having had rheumatoid arthritis with secondary sjorgrens and Raynaud’s for twenty odd years I have tried so many combinations of medication. The best result was Methotrexate but unfortunately after a bout of pneumonia this was stopped. I was at my wits end and lost interest in everything…..even the news that I was going to be a grandma! My rheumatologist, seeing my distress gave me the injection and its like a new world! I have the odd ‘ouch’ but I can now sleep, my memory is back, I can smile and mean it. Don’t know how long it will last but for me its been a bit of a lifesaver.”

For Inflammatory Conditions “My primary doc actually gave me a shot of this when I threw my back out. I never felt better. I went back to him and told him not only did it help with my back, but with may fibromyalgia! My rheumatologist had given me all sorts of pills to try and I felt like like a science experiment! I usually get it 1-2 times a year. I stretch it out until I know I can’t take it anymore and my body tells me- “help”- it has done me wonders! I can get back on my feet and be me within a day or 2 depending on how bad I am. No more docs pushing pills down my throat or telling me it’s all in my head, & I can get outta bed when the alarm goes off- not hitting snooze and for 2 hours and Practically in tears! I know my body N it works for me! Good luck!”

For Inflammatory Conditions “My hair is falling out. It’s so hard to lose weight. I feel mentally a little off like constant irritation. I also feel a little lethargic. When I first got the shots I felt jittery for days. I’m having blurry vision. “
