My name is KarlyAnn! I am one of thousands of girls who have fallen as a victim to the vaccination: Gardasil. This, as well as any other drug has adverse side effects, only with a much more devastating outcome. The symptoms are basically any neurological problems you can think of! Now, the reason for this vaccine is to help prevent Girls from getting Cervical Cancer; which, actually has several strands- and Gardasil can only prevent one of them, the one that is caused by an STD known as HPV (the Human Papiloma Virus). If I would have known this, I would have had no chance of getting cancer- I’m not sexually active! Along with many girls, my doctor strongly suggested I get it. So I did! Bad idea! I am now suffering the effects along with thousands of others in my same position. Unfortunately, some have already passed away. I wouldn’t have ever thought my sickness would have originated from a series of shots, but a friend, Tracey, saw me my flaring symptoms and talked to us about how her best friend’s niece had died from similar symptoms. She was one of the many victims who have passed away from the Gardasil vaccination.

Since I personally am not a prescription fan I also found that there are several supplements that greatly help. Grandma's Herbs has a package with 6 products that address several of the areas that problematic for those who suffer from fibromyalgia. Since it seems to be an auto-immune system disorder, it stands to reason to boost your immune system. Grandma's Herbs Immune Enhancer and Defense System help with that. Fibromyalgia also seems to effect the nerve endings, so I take Grandma's Herbs Nervine and B-AllCalm formula. A great and easy to assimilate herbal calcium has also been great in soothing, feeding and strengthening my nerves. So I use Grandma's Herbal Calcium formula, as well as Daily Greens to help with my vitamins and minerals intake. And finally to help with the pain, I take Grandma's Herbs Pain-aid. For me staying all natural has given me the control over my symptoms that I need. I have my good days and my bad days, but I am able to deal with it. I know so many people suffering, and they often ask me how I "deal with it". For me the answer is having the patience with myself and my limits, faith in my body to have the strength to heal, and the knowledge that I have some input in controlling my symptoms. Oh and I am sure my stubborn attitude also plays into this somewhere!
I hope my story and information can be a help to others. I know fibromyalgia, like many health issues, will affect different people in different ways and severity. How we deal with any health issue is such a personal choice. As for me, I am now almost 50 and I still refuse to loose control!

"I am an active person, one who regards himself as healthy, fit and in the prime of life at 40. I ride my bike,work out and I eat right, I even do a triathlon here and there. So imagine my surprise finding out, while getting a physical for my insurance, that at age 40 I had what the doctor called a "high risk cholesterol level". I was shocked and went directly for a second test because I was sure he was wrong. When I finally came to grips with the fact that I did indeed have a cholesterol issue, I decided to take better control of my diet and health.
I believe in the natural health approach, so I took to studying how to lower my cholesterol naturally. First, I cut out all meats period! For 6 weeks I ate mainly fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Through my research I found the most effective supplements to take as well. I started taking Niacin, Lecithin and Grandma's Herbs Cholesterol formula. I also continued to stay active. After 6 weeks I slowly introduced meats back into my diet, but in moderation. After 8 weeks I had my cholesterol re-checked. I was relieved to be told I had lowered my cholesterol back to a "normal level". I continue to keep a close watch on my cholesterol, as well as take the necessary supplements needed to keep it at a healthy level. I am grateful there are alternatives available to help take control of a serious issue naturally."
