I was already taking alot of the products that Jean Carper talks about in her book. I had just begun taking glucosamine sulfate but I was only taking one pill. I had a problem with a tendon in my arm and had just about resolved myself to the fact that I was probably going to have to get a steroid shot. After reading her book I began taking the right dosage for glucosamine, loading up with it, and I am feeling my tendon alot less each day. This book saved me from a steroid shot that makes me ill for days. I am so thankful for that. I also began taking the ProFibe that she recommended. If it works like she says it does, and I'm sure it does, my heart will be ticking for a long time with no problems. Her book was a joy to read. It not only informed but did it in an entertaining way. I learned so much about the proper dosages to take, why I should be taking certain things and what side effects I could have. I hope she keeps writing books because I will continue to read them. I am in the process of ordering her other books because I know they will be just as informative. So thank you Jean Carper for writing about alternative medicines that we can use in our everday life. I will be looking forward to your next best seller!!!!!!
