So I'm up right now unable to sleep because I'm in intense pain and this infomercial comes on. Usually I shut these things off, and tune out (quite literally). But they started talking about inflammation, and a cure for it! The cure is Nopalea, a juice drink that comes from the Nopal Cactus. There are numerous studies that show that the Nopal Cactus has healing qualities. Also the company which produces this Nopalea is called Trivita which has somewhat of a proven track record.

Now I know the golden rule; if its too good to be true it probably is. I'm very skeptical of these "cure all" magic potions. But the bottle is free, and I have to say the interviews on the commercial with users of this product were quite convincing. I just ordered my bottle and I will let everyone know how it goes. But has anyone else heard about this before? Anyone have any experience using this?

I've seen the infomercial but I always figure if its on an infomercial its probably garbage, yet I was still inclined to try it.... Not enough so to order it though. Let us know what you think of it.

Did you try it? Did it help your Crohn's?

Hi, everyone. Since no one replied, I decided to try it myself and see what happens. I did call the customer service of Nopalea and the person I spoke with was very helpful and stayed after work another 30 min. just to talk to me on the phone and he was head of a department. I think that speaks well of the co. and their policy towards helping customers and customer care. He uses Nopalea for a blown knee and he says it works for him. He said it's not 100% better, but 90% better than it was...and that honesty also tells me a I have hi hopes. We'll see. I'll report back on how it works for me, but it may be a min. of a month or 2. It's natural and natural things do take longer to work, so 2 months would not be all that unusual in my estimation, but I'm still reading on other anti - inflammatory treatments for autoimmune disorders and Crohn's, Celiac, Gastritis, Pancteatitis, Arthritis and 100's others that also fall under the category of inflammatory autoimmune disorders. So if anyone has tried anything else, please post it here and share what you took, how much you took, for how long, what happened(what effects, physical and mental) and what you think of what ever you tried.
