Rue was recommended to me by a homeopath- I did a web search for "user reviews/testimonials...", on Rue?
(I don't 100% trust "seller's web site reviews!", on ANY product! Amazon reviews are the BEST, because they are unfiltered & include negative reviews too!)
See product description..., way below- It was GREAT for "ALL" my aches & pains...! :o)
I could find "hardly anything" on Rue? I can NOW see why! I don't feel that many people completed the cycle, because!-
LUCKILY I found 1 review on a sellers web site, where Rue disolved a hard bony deposit on a man's wrist. He stated that on the 10th day his wrist "ACHED", but he continued! On the 15th day his deposit disappeared & pain went away! HMMM...?
After using Rue I too strongly feel that it actually disolves arthritis crystals...! WOW!
Well Rue is very inexpensive, so I thought I'd give it a try curing my chronic Achilles Tendonitis, as nothing else has worked (I bought 1oz of 30c)!?
I followed directions & took 3, 3 times daily sublingually (dissolved under tongue), preceded by a large glass of water, On an empty stomach (an hour... before meals...).
I will decrease gradually over time, as needed... (I couldn't find anthing on "how long..."?)?
My experience & strong reaction (while it was repairing...)-
1. I took the last daily dose 3 hours before bedtime- I had a "hard!" time getting to sleep, and when I did sleep it was restless... & I awoke EARLY!?
On 8th day, I started taking all three doses during the day (before dinner), and the sleeping problems..., went away.
2. On the 5th day I awoke with moderate pain in "every" area where I had ANY problems...!- Tendonitis, sciatica, gout. Arthritis in my- knees, back, neck, shoulder, hands...
I took 2 ibuprofen (OTC Advil, with food & big glass of water) & and pain quickly went away.
P.S. I didn't go to day only until after the pain stopped, may be necessary?- as body repairs during sleep. If you don't have the pain... (necessary!), I'd try it before bed for several days & see? I also took a mild sleeping pill. Was it removing bad stuff from my brain too?
My eyes tired quickly at my computer (I'm a software tech, and this WAS a previous problem with me- just not so fast! (For added eye relief...- Adjust your "monitor refresh rate" setting...(XP help), to as fast as it will go!))).
If I hadn't read about that guy continuing (after his pains...), with excellent results!- I might have stopped taking it.
a. Well I continued & the pains... went completely away, in about two days.
3. This is when it gets GOOD!-
a. In about a week I noticed that arthritis in my- knees, back, neck, shoulder, hands... no longer ached! No sciatica or gout yet!?
WOW! A month later- I'm now again playing tennis again (first time in years!), hiking, bicycle riding, climbing stairs(all in moderation...)- with little or no pain!
b. I can now sit at my computer for hours, and no eye strain!
Sound too good to be true?! Well try it, & stick the course...!- You'll be HAPPY you did!
