Spine specialists at more than one spine institute here in Colorado and Arizona wanted to perform immediate surgery to fuse my L4-L5 herniated discs to provide pain relief for the pain I have suffered with over the last 20-years. Waking up in the morning had been a grueling event as I literally felt I was snapping in two...it seriously took me 45-60 minutes each morning before I could move comfortably. Doctors prescribed Vicodin as well as OxyContin for the pain...not wanting to get hooked on the prescription drugs, I turned to injections in the back during the period February - March 2015...this helped a little, but I was still feeling the pain as well as experiencing Sciatica conditions...trying to help myself and keep from having surgery, I started to take Aleve every night before going to bed in order to be able to move in the morning when I woke up...this helped a little (taking Aleve instead of the prescription drugs)...However, in April 2015 I had a serious health issue related to the Aleve...this nearly cost me my life. On April 14, 2015 I was on a business trip in Northern Virginia and got food poisoning at a restaurant. I spent 3 hours that night in a terrible state as you can imagine...thinking it was only food poisoning, I went to business meetings for 2 days...looking a little paler and weaker each day...by the afternoon of day 3, I knew something was seriously wrong...I checked myself into a hospital and learned that I was in critical condition (I was admitted immediately)...needing 3 units of blood over the next two days...I was bleeding internally from ulcers that I did not know I had (the ulcers were caused by the Aleve in discussion with the doctors)...after this experience, it was the last time I took any over-the-counter medication or prescription pain drugs.
Since that period, I have been on a regiment of LIMU Original along with the other LIMU products (BLU FROG/BLU FROG2, the Lean Protein Mix and an occasional BURN). Pain on the spine is reflective of inflammation. One thing LIMU addresses is inflammation. I can tell you that since I have been on a LIMU regiment, I have been able to move comfortably now and I do not wake up in the morning feeling like I am snapping in two. In addition, I have taken LIMU for my ulcers (no prescription meds) and I have no issues regarding the ulcers. The LIMU Original is packed with FUCOIDAN and other super nutrients, plus vitamins and minerals. LIMU is an essential superfood packed with 83% pure reconstituted Tongan Limu Moui. It is part of my daily regiment! To listen to my story more, dial 1-515-739-1009, enter code 703954#.
Please check out the National Institute of Health pubmed.gov website and search on the number of studies relative to FUCOIDAN and other health issues. Over 1300 studies have been identified on the effects of FUCOIDAN.
