In ’84 I had a cold in January. In February I went to my doctor’s because I still had the cold. However, she was booked up and was unable to see me. I was scheduled for April. So I went back home and I could not breathe or lay down to sleep. I had to sit up in bed with a pillow just laboring trying to breath. So it got to April, and in April I passed out at the dinner table, and I was rushed to the hospital where I was admitted. I stayed there for a period of five weeks while the specialists were running all sorts of tests. And after five weeks they diagnosed with systemic lupus. Well at that point they put me on high dosages of Prednisone, which I stayed on for a period of 12 years.
In 1996 my husband read information regarding this company and we started using the products. And within 2 months after using the products my rheumatologist said, “Mrs. Rollins,” you know after running certain tests, he said, “Mrs. Rollins, it may be possible for you to get off the Prednisone.” Well, for 11 ½ years I had not heard that from any rheumatologist or I never thought I’d be able to get off the Prednisone.
Well true to his word, one year later after using the products I was able to get off the Prednisone. While I was on Prednisone, the – Prednisone worked on the symptoms for the Lupus. Meanwhile it was breaking down everything else in my system. I developed arthritis, diabetes, osteoporosis, Cushing’s syndrome, high hypertension, fatty deposits on my back, high cholesterol – over 200 and a lot of weight because the Prednisone makes you eat a lot.
Well, I got the supplement – praise God for these products – and I lost 50 pounds, my blood pressure in 130/70, my blood sugar is around the 109 range. I can see better. I have a life again, because I was struggling before just to breathe and to have the family take me around from place to place. Well now, I’m working. I have many duties at church which I perform. I’m doing my business and sharing it with everybody, and I’m attending college part time. I’m still trying to keep up with my husband, and one day I’ll get there.
