Elaine Douty, 51, of Arizona has gone from being terrified of ending up bedridden from MS to leading a full life — with reduced pain, improved mobility, and energy to spare!
“For years people didn’t understand the pain MS patients endure,” Elaine says. “My mother had MS, and so did my dad’s brother, but we were told it was not hereditary.”
“I was terrified of ending up like my mom, who was bedridden for years before she passed away in a very debilitated state,” Elaine adds. “Since I’ve been using MPR, though, I feel so much hope. Based on the changes I’ve seen in just three months, I don’t think that’s going to be my fate.”
DIAGNOSED WITH FIBROMYALGIA, THEN M.S.
“Nine or ten years ago I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis,” Elaine says. “I started falling and was losing my balance for no reason.”
“Five years before that I’d developed fibromyalgia, which made me extremely fatigued,” she relates. “I was raising three kids as a single parent at the time, so that was very difficult. The fatigue became overpowering, more than I could resolve with extra sleep.”
As an office manager for a construction company, Elaine says, “part of my job involves going out in the field and dealing with customers in their homes. Not being able to walk effectively made that difficult, and the fatigue didn’t help. Then I began to have trouble with the motor skills in my hands, too — typing and such. I still have some problems with that, but they’ve gotten better.”
DEVELOPS DEGENERATIVE DISK DISEASE
“I had a bad fall about two years ago,” Elaine says, “and it led to degenerative disk disease. Within about a month, I began to have pain in my lower back. I also started to have sciatica pain, and X-rays showed a bit of arthritis in both hips.”
“Then about eight months ago I had an MRI on my lower spine and hip,” she says. “It showed two degenerated disks as well as bone spurs, which irritated the nerves, causing sciatica pain on the left side.”
“I still have days with severe pain in my lower back,” she relates, “and when the sciatica is acting up it will actually cause my legs to collapse under me, in addition to the excruciating pain.”
STARTS ON MPR IN MID-MARCH
“I learned about Micronized Purple Rice on Facebook about three months ago,” Elaine says, “in mid-March. I read lots of testimonials, and saw that it was helping people with many different conditions. It intrigued me, but I was hesitant to try it because I’d tried so many other things that didn’t work.”
“I’d tried to get healthier with diet, supplements, and a whole slew of medicines,” she relates. “I had at least 12 prescriptions, including ones that are supposed to help with pain, spasticity, and all the other MS problems. But none of this stuff had really done any good for me.”
“I looked into MPR and figured I had nothing to lose,” Elaine says. “I decided to do the powder three times a day, follow the recommended way to use it, and give it some time, knowing it wasn’t going to be an instant fix.”
Elaine learned how this powerful food can fuel the body, giving it more energy to repair and regenerate, and that it takes 60 pounds of rare, heirloom purple rice from Thailand to make just one pound of powerful MPR powder.
The most nutritious part of the purple rice grains is extracted and milled so fine that its concentrated nutrients can be absorbed through the cell membrane, where they can fuel our mitochondria (cellular batteries), which then produce ATP, or pure light energy.
“One of the things that appealed to me the most about MPR,” Elaine says, “was that it comes from a clean area of the world with no GMOs or pesticides. I believe these environmental toxins are responsible for a lot of people’s medical troubles.”
PAIN REDUCED BY 50% — MORE ENERGY, TOO!
“My pain has been reduced by at least 50 percent,” Elaine says, “which is a huge improvement. I still have days when it bothers me, but now my pain level is often about a 2 instead of an 8 or 9.”
“I’m sleeping better,” she adds, “but I still wake up from leg cramps, although they’re not as frequent or severe. And I’m not waking up as often.”
“I haven’t done anything different,” she says, “so it has to be the purple rice. That 50% pain reduction might not seem like a lot to some people, but to me it’s huge.”
“My energy level is so much better, too,” Elaine says. “I’m used to being tired all the time — before MPR I hadn’t had a day in 10 years when I wasn’t tired. But recently I woke up at 5:30 in the morning and couldn’t go back to sleep, so I got up and had my MPR then cleaned the kitchen. After I’d been up for about an hour, I realized it was barely 6:30, and everything was clean!”
“I have three granddaughters, ages 6, 4, and 6 months, and they’re all very active,” she says. “For a long time I didn’t have energy to do things with them, but now with MPR I do. My energy level is up, and my mobility is a little better. I’m still having issues there, but it’s improving — these things take time. But just having energy is a godsend.”
“I no longer have to tell my grandkids sorry, I can’t do things with you because I’m too tired,” she says. “It’s really made a marked improvement in my energy level.”
“Obviously I still have these medical conditions,” she says, “but in three months I’ve been very impressed with the improvements I’ve seen.”
BOYFRIEND AND DOG ON MPR, TOO!
“My boyfriend has been taking MPR as well,” Elaine says. “It’s helping with his energy levels, and both he and I are noticing a difference in our appearance as well. He’s 58 and works outdoors in construction but has never worn sunscreen until the last few years. Thanks to MPR, though, his skin is much better now. I didn’t buy it for the anti-aging, but that’s been a wonderful added benefit. I’ve noticed that my skin is softer and my wrinkles have started to smooth out.”
“After suffering from irritable bowel syndrome for many years,” Elaine says, “my boyfriend has seen a big change — his digestion has gotten much better since being on MPR.”
“I also recently started giving MPR to my German shepherd mix, Maya, who is 11,” Elaine says. “She was showing signs of aging — stiffness and lethargy — but now she’s perked up and is happier, more affectionate, and wants to run around more.”
STARTS DOING MPR AS A BUSINESS
“I belong to an MS support group here in Tucson,” Elaine says, “and I’ve started telling people about MPR and the great results I’ve had. Many seem skeptical, like I was in the beginning, but I’ve been giving them Kare’s book so they can start doing their research.”
Elaine shares an anecdote about an event that made her want to share MPR as a business:
“We went to a big soccer tournament that was being held here, in 117-degree heat!” she says.
“We were told they’d have shuttles for people with disabilities, but there weren’t any. It was a nightmare. Well, we got into the stadium and had to walk all the way around it. We had excellent seats, in the second row, but that meant we had to go down 42 steps to get to our seats. I don’t think I would’ve been able to do that without MPR. I’m stronger because of it, and I was able to endure something that I would not under any circumstances have been able to handle before.”
