expensive yes, but this is how it has worked for me...
on June 19, 2013
I am only giving this 4 stars because you can't just buy it without going through a seller, and its kinda spendy. And just know that I am now switching to the capsules of 'fucoidan', because the reviews are all very positive, and its much much cheaper.... but here is my review of this particular product:
My boyfriend got a few bottles of Limu for me through a friend who has seen great results from it (chronic pain after back surgery a few years ago, pain pills daily... and Limu has allowed him to stop taking the pain meds) so I tried it. I was injured from head to toe in the army back in the 90s, and due to the nature of those injuries, I just figured the pain would just remain. Its gotten better over the years, but not disappeared completely - I wasn't sure if I had healed finally or if my brain was just keeping the pain in check.
After a few weeks I noticed that the parts of my back that were just staying stiff all the time were starting to pop and relax, and the relief from that alone was wonderful. I had given up on chiropractors, since something was keeping my muscles in certain places very tight, adjustments were a waste of money. This is a bit personal, but pain during sex was gone, as well - cervix was always bumped and irritated. Aching in my once fractured feet was fading away, as well, along with knee pain and hip pain.
As a chemist, I like experimenting with things and I decided to try something with the Limu... I stopped drinking it for a few days, just to see if the intiinflammatory properties allowed old injuries to finally heal. Since its so spendy, that would have been nice not to have to pay $120 a month through a supplier, its kind of a pyrimid scheme. Nope. The pain came back a bit worse, most likely because my brain was no longer used to blocking the nerves with the chronic irritation. My back was stiff, feet hurt, knees hurt, sex became painful again. So now a few days back on it (a few sips in the morning, and a few in the evening, that's all) and the pain is quickly fading away. Faster than when I initially started drinking it, that took about 3 weeks.
So yes, it works... and if someone takes it who has had pain for a long time, you might not notice how its helping if your brain was blocking any of your pain, but you will most likely notice if you take it for a while and then stop. Not to say you have to stay on it, your brain would again block the pain, but it might take a while. I'll be getting a subscription of this stuff soon, and I'll have extra bottles that I'll sell on here, but I will not be ripping anyone off like the sellers here that I'm seeing. It not $45 a bottle, wow. Greed, greed greed.
