really loves Cactus Juice
Rheumatoid Arthritis sufferer
Bill is now pain free!
Bill’s doctors and many of his friends were so impressed in changes in Bill since he began drinking the juice — that they are now drinking the Nopal Cactus Juice and feeling better, too!
Here is Bill’s story in his own words:
From the Abyss of Pain and Desperation to the 7th Heaven of Relief
Ahhh — A Pain Free Life!
“All the things I learned after I thought I knew it all.”
How was I to know that after having suffered for years the horrible pains of rheumatoid arthritis they would be greatly relieved by a simple, very simple, fruit juice from the cactus prickly pear fruit?
So, here I am, after having spent 40 years as a designer of rockets that went to the Moon and Mars and a professor of rocket science, I learned that a simple thing with which I had grown up as a child in a farm in Southern Greece, would be the vehicle that would help me with the severe pains of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and carry me from the “abyss” of pain and desperation to the “seventh heaven” of relief to a painless life.
As a child in Greece, my favorite breakfast during the months of August and September was the prickly pear fruit of the cactus plant which grew abundantly on my parents’ farm. I had become an expert in getting them down, cleaning and peeling them without getting any of the tiny thorns or spikes on me. The usual dosage was about eight or ten each morning.
The cactus plant is a native of Mexico where the Spaniards found it and were controlling its export. In fact at some point it had become as important an export as gold. The French stole it and carried it over into Haiti and from there they took it to the Mediterranean area where it thrives to this day and where its fruit appropriately are called “French Figs” (Frankosyca).
The symptoms of what later, much later was diagnosed as RA, first appeared in the late 1980′s as I started working with the newly introduced Apple desktop computers. They manifested themselves as swelling of the fingers and wrists accompanied by very severe pain. They first diagnosed it as carpal tunnel syndrome and they put me through all kinds of special treatments, such as hot and icy baths, hot steamed towels, massages, etc. In addition, I was treated with all kinds of medications the likes of Butazolidin, Feldene, Motrin, generic ibuprofen and in heavy dosages. Yes, I did see relief and improvement, but anytime I overused my hands the swelling and the unbearable pain would invariably re-occur.
One specialist sports surgeon was always ready to operate on my wrists but I resisted because something was telling me that it was not the answer and I would not see much relief. Perhaps it was my rocket scientist’s “common sense” that was at work. I needed to be assured that indeed this was the correct diagnosis and the right thing to do and not simply an experiment with surgery. As I went through X-rays and MRIs of both hands and from the work comp doctor to my own family general practitioner to a rheumatologist who opined, that there’s no RA, to two types of specialized orthopedic surgeons and then to another rheumatologist for a second opinion who positively diagnosed it as RA who prescribed another medication, methotrexate, which is used in chemotherapy but was found to also help persons with RA. Along with this new medicine I was also put on higher dosages of anti-inflamatories Motrin and/or generic ibuprofen.
After about a year of this and without any warning I noticed the effects or internal bleeding. I was hospitalized and transfused five times and as they found a small wart-like benign tumor in my stomach which they did not remove it because it showed signs of receding. Six months later, the bleeding reoccurred and this time they removed the small tumor. Again five more transfusions and I went home feeling fine. One of the things that I noticed was that both times as I was given the new blood and was discharged all my pains had disappeared. I would then jokingly say, “they gave me the blood of an 18-year old”! In both cases, however, the pains returned with the passage of time. I was off the ibuprofen anti-inflamatories and I would depend on the use of ice packs to treat the swelling, which helped, but the pains were always there. I could not even squeeze a lemon or peel a potato without having my fingers swell and the unbearable pain return.
Then the “miracle happened”! For the first time a good friend, who had also been a former student of mine some 30 years prior, came to see me — on a day that I had severe pains! As we were reminiscing our common past we talked about our ailments he asked me and I told him what I had. Then he said “I had that too and I have been drinking a natural fruit juice and I do not have pain anymore”!
Needless to that I immediately asked for the name of the juice and where I could get it. He promised to send me some and it came a few weeks later. When I saw that it was from the Nopal cactus … I burst out laughing because of my previous experience of having the cactus prickly pear fruit for breakfast when I was a child in my parents’ farm. So, as the saying goes “what goes around comes around”, there I was so many years later back into the cactus pear usage…
I started drinking it, 3 0z twice a day, and within a week I noticed that my fingers were not as numb anymore. Within a month I noticed a significant reduction of my pains and a better overall feeling was settling in. I shared the experience with my family doctor who was impressed and asked that information be sent to her which is currently happening. As I went to my rheumatologist specialist for my regular bimonthly blood exam I did not tell her anything because I wanted to know if she would detect anything special in my blood. By then I had only been drinking the juice for a month. Two months later as the new exam came I asked her if the blood was showing anything special. She said, “well, the RA bug is still there but it seems to be asleep” to which I retorted, “oh, I gave it a sleeping pill…” and then I showed her the information. Her comment was: “You cured yourself!” I then said “as one doctor talking to another, myself in Rocket Science and you in Medicine, I believe you should make this known and available to all your RA patients…”
Now I have no pains and I treasure and rejoice every moment. Where I would periodically get some crippling pains in my hips and ankles that kept bed-ridden for two days at a time until the icing would help, now there’s no such a thing! I can squeeze lemons, peel and cut potatoes, open cans and jars with my hands and sleep through the night in any position I choose. I can also again walk at a fast rate of 120 to 125 steps per minute.
Here I wish to express a personal opinion, if I may, about this whole situation. As I read the literature that says how it cleanses the toxins from our cells … I theorized that the new blood that they had given me in both hospitalizations six months apart, did not have any toxins and perhaps that was the reason that caused my pains to go away immediately following the transfusions. However, with the passage of time the toxins came back and with them the pains came back as well. So, it must be true then that the betalains in cactus juice really does wash all the toxins away!
OH, WHAT A RELIEF IT IS!

Neuropathy and gout…Gone!
I am always being asked if this Juice is good for
symptoms of neuropathy, gout, back pain, arthritis…
Read Lee Simmons story and see…
“My Pain was so bad,
I was praying to God to die!”
Lee Simmons had been dealing with back pain since she was in her 30′s
and doctors diagnosed her with degenerative disc disease and arthritis.
Then in her 40s, she developed neuropathy, a medical condition
that runs in her family and causes pain and numbness in the hands and feet.
Now 64, Lee suffered from such severe pain from arthritis, back problems, gout and neuropathy
that at times she couldn’t even walk. “The older I got, the worse the pain was,” says Lee,
who is retired from a successful dental practice making dentures and partials for dentists.
For her various ailments, her doctor had prescribed up to 15 pills a day.
But the pain was still there and it was getting unbearable. Her doctor told her
the only thing left to try was OxyContin, a narcotic pain reliever.
“I knew I didn’t want to take OxyContin, but the pain was so bad
I was actually praying to God to die,” says Lee.
Early one morning around 4 a.m. when she couldn’t get to sleep because of the pain,
Lee turned on the TV. There was the infomercial for Nopal Cactus Juice.
“I had never heard of it before and I was immediately interested,” says Lee.
Despite the early hour, Lee got up and placed a phone call to order the juice.
“I thought, What can I lose - a little money or a lot of pain?”
When the juice arrived, Lee read the information packed incorrectly
and began drinking three 6-ounce glasses of juice a day,
more than the standard loading dose of 6 ounces daily.
But that proved to be a blessing, too.
“My pain was knocked out within three days,” says Lee.
“You have no idea how wonderful that was for me.
When the infomercial for the juice came on, I thought it was just a coincidence,
but now I know it was God-sent.”
After about a month of drinking the juice, Lee went for her regularly scheduled visit
to see her doctor. When he looked at the test results from her blood work he was surprised.
For the first time in years, everything was normal.
“My blood pressure, cholesterol, everything was good,” says Lee.
“My doctor said it was the best results I had ever had since I started going to see him.”
That’s when she told him she was drinking Nopal Cactus Juice and she handed him a flyer.
“It was so amazing,” says Lee. “At my last visit I had gone in crying from the pain,
begging the doctor to do something for me. This time, I said to him, “Do you want to jitterbug?”
Several months after drinking the juice, Lee continues to feel great.
She is now drinking two ounces of juice three times a day, the best level to keep her pain down.
With the exception of only minor flare-ups, it is the first time in 30 years
that she has lived her life pain-free.
Now that life is back to normal, she’s started to tackle projects around the house and in the yard.
She’s even going up and down a ladder in order to finish painting her bedroom -
a job that she had to postpone last year when the pain got overwhelming.
Lee has also started telling everyone who will listen about the Nopal Cactus Juice.
“When I first started drinking the juice and began to feel good,
my friends told me I should tell other people about it,” says Lee.
“I was hesitant at first to do that. Now I can’t shut up about it.
You could not make me stop drinking this juice. It’s been a miracle for me.
I am happy to talk with anyone who asks.”
We’re Keeping the Music
Alive and Well …
Charles and I love listening to Jeff Snyder’s music…
whether he’s playing piano or directing an entire show!
But severe pain in his shoulder nearly put an end to it all.
Click below and listen to his music and his story.
Jeff Snyder, Music and Choir Director at First Unity in St Petersburg, Fl.
was frightened that his music career was coming to an end because of
severe pain in his shoulder which was restricting his piano playing,
his conducting, his sleep and his life. The chronic pain was not reduced
with massage, chiropractic or accupuncture. The prognosis
from his health care practitioners was not encouraging.
Charles and I noticed the change in Jeff as he dealt with the pain
and invited him to follow us home after church. We served him
the cactus juice that had taken Charles pain away two years earlier.
We knew that the underlying cause of his pain had to be inflammation
and we were certain that the rare anti-inflamatory betalains in this pure sweet juice
would relieve his pain and free up his music again! We were right–it worked!
What a gift it is to be able to help someone get out of pain…
what a gift it is to help someone like Jeff
share his gift of music more fully!
Jeff’s joy is music!
On Broadway, Jeff was piano accompanist for “Dreamgirls”!
He was also Piano Conductor for many musicals including: “Cabaret”, “Chicago”, “Fantactics”, “A Little Night Music”, “How to Succeed In Business” “Jacques Brel is Alive and Well Living in Paris”, “Godspell”, “Jesus Christ Superstar”, “Company”, ” You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown”, “Candide”, and “Chorus Line”.
Jeff moved to St Petersburg to work with gifted theater students at the Asolo University in Sarasota, Fl. where he also created and directed and a Cabaret show with 4 students who performed 3 nights a week after the Opera. Presently he teaches both private and group piano and is creating amazing music and shows as Music and Choir Director at First Unity. see and hear more at www.FirstUnity.org

New Knees–No Surgery!
“For me …
it is like a new,
supple, young body
has replaced my old,
stiff one. “
I always thought that the fountain of youth was a myth…
Yet I wake up every morning now and don’t recognize this body!There is nothing familiar in the way it feels and moves. There is a new suppleness and flexibility that I don’t remember ever feeling, even as a kid.
As someone who has always been athletic, I was heartbroken when my painful knees forced me to stop running. Every year after age forty my knees got a little worse, forcing me to cut my activities back further and further. Dejected, I began mentally preparing myself for an eventual knee replacement. When I met Kare and Charles, my knees were so bad that they hurt every time I sat down.
With miracle cures abounding these days, I was more than a little skeptical when Kare suggested that I try her cactus juice. Having spent thousands of dollars on new age/alternative treatments, that turned out to be nothing more than smoke and mirrors, veritable sink holes in my wallet, I couldn’t imagine that I had found something realï¿½something that could actually rid people of inflammation, the root of a plethora of ailments.
For the first time in years — no knee pain!
Then a miracle happened. Shortly after I began drinking the juice, I sat down to read and … for the first time in years — there was no pain! Thinking it was a fluke, I sat down again, and again there was no pain!
I’m thrilled to say that I’ve been pain free for months now. Even as a kid, my body has never been this flexible and supple. I couldn’t believe it when I was able to go running after 15 years of abstinence, without any pain! I thank my friends for sharing this with me and I thank this amazing juice for giving me back my twenty-year-old knees!
The other morning, on a lark, I decided to try a few yoga postures. This was quite unusual for me because I usually avoid stretching. My body has been painfully stiff since I was a child. One pose that I particularly dislike is the plow. Even though I know that my body desperately needs it, I have a love hate relationship with it because my back and calves scream at me every time I try it. But this morning was different. Lying on my back, as I lifted my legs up, I watched in amazement as my feet glided effortlessly over my head and landed gently and gracefully on the floor. Itï¿½s true that I had been able to get my feet on the floor before, but just for an instant, and not without considerable effort and pain. But this time there was neither. My upper and lower back and my calves were completely relaxed and pain free. It was as if unbeknownst to me, a new, supple, young body had replaced my old, stiff one. I loved that my body could do things that I hadn’t been able to do, even as a child.
My author friend can type again without wrist pain!
After my knee miracle, I recommended the Juice to a friend of mine who is a prolific author. Her written voice had been silenced for months due to debilitating pain in her wrists and hands, making it impossible for her to use the mouse and keypad on her computer. She was forlorn and dejected, not knowing whether she would ever be able to go back to the work that had become her lifeï¿½s passion.
Within hours after taking the juice, her hands and wrists felt better. The very next day, with her heart in her throat she sat down in front her computer, and lo and behold, she was able to write without pain! Her hands and wrists have continued to improve and now she is busy working on her next book, all due to this miraculous juice! Kare and Charles, I can’t thank you enough for the important work that you are doing!
If you are reading these words and have an inflammation related illness or chronic pain … I encourage you to try this juice. It is truly one of the best gifts that you could ever give yourself.
Laura Katleman is the best selling author of the new book “Skinny Thinking: Five Revolutionary Steps to Permanently HEAL your Relationship with FOOD, WEIGHT and Your BODY”. I attended her workship and have read her book and I highly recommend it. With a background in Transpersonal Psychology, Laura has been lecturing and counseling people about their eating issues since 2007. Skinny thinking grew out of her desire to share the techniques that permanently healed her eatin, weight and body-image issues. Check out her website at: www.SkinnyThinking.com
IMPORTANT TO KNOW: Not everyone gets such fast results as Laura did. Her diet is vegetarian and very clean … she has eliminated all the inflammation producing foods and drinking 8-10 glasses of good water a day to flush out the toxins that the betalains are releasing. Because of the health and the wisdom of our bodies–the betalains will usually target the most inflammed tissues first. If these are inflammed internal organs like liver or heart…it may take longer before you feel the results in your inflamed extremities like knees or wrists. Eating more alkaline foods and drinking more alkaline water will certainly assist in the process of releasing toxins from your body.
Blessings for your Health
