After chemo for breast cancer weakened her immune system, 58-year-old Rebecca Dickinson of Arkansas got a very painful case of chronic recurring shingles. But her lesions are gone now, thanks to Kare’s Micronized Purple Rice (MPR) powder!

“The pain was excruciating,” Rebecca says. “I had shingles lesions on my head — draining sores, oozing and crusting over. It hurt so bad I could hardly wash my hair. I’d been going to the doctor for months, trying to clear it up. They’d give me medicine, and it would help a little, but then the lesions would return.”

“I’d never had shingles before starting chemotherapy,” she says, “although I did have chickenpox as a child. I’d even had the shingles vaccine! But I got shingles anyway. The blisters kept getting worse, and the pain was just unbearable.” 

“Well, once I started on MPR, most of my shingles lesions cleared up in about two weeks,” she says. “After three weeks, they were completely gone. Once in a while, when I’m under stress, I feel a tingle, like it’s starting to come back. When that happens, I just have an extra teaspoon or so of MPR, and it goes away.”

“To me, that alone makes MPR worth the money,” she says. “To have those awful sores gone for good — what a blessing!”


“Seven years ago,” Rebecca says, “I was diagnosed with breast cancer — invasive ductal carcinoma. It was a fairly large tumor. They did a biopsy a few days later, and then brought me in for a lumpectomy that following Monday. It all happened so fast!”

“After my lumpectomy, I had chemotherapy and radiation for about a year,” she relates. “I’m not sure I’d do it again, though. It’s hell on earth. The chemo left me with some bad side effects. But I’m alive, so I really shouldn’t complain.”

“After my tumor was removed,” she says, “calcifications appeared in my breast. I even had to have another needle biopsy, on the calcifications. The doctors were watching them pretty closely. They were afraid it could mean the cancer had returned.”

“Ever since I got breast cancer,” Rebecca says, “I’ve had to go in for diagnostic mammograms. The doctor is there on site when they do it, so it’s different from a screening mammogram.”

“Well, just recently it was time for me to get one again, and I was shocked, because this time there were no calcifications — they were all gone! I think it had to be from the MPR, because I haven’t done anything else differently.”

“MPR was an answered prayer for me,” Rebecca says. “I feel my body really needed it. As the old saying goes, let food be thy medicine. I love eating from God’s pharmacy! I’m so thankful I found Kare’s Micronized Purple Rice powder. God answers prayers.”

“When my doctor first told me about my diagnosis,” she adds, “he told me, ‘Positive people tend to be the ones who make it.’ So I try to always stay positive and optimistic. My faith helps a lot with that.”


“I got started on MPR back in January,” Rebecca says, “after learning about it on Facebook. I was really skeptical at first — it seemed too good to be true. I wondered if all these people were getting paid to do their testimonials. But after I got started, I learned that people are telling the truth.”

Rebecca 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.


“In November of last year I had cataract surgery,” Rebecca says, “and my healing progress was slow. Then, after starting on MPR, my eyes healed up, and I got my vision checked again. Now I have 20/15 vision in my right eye, which is better than before I developed cataracts. Now I don’t have to wear glasses!”

“I went to my eye doctor,” she adds, “and he was just stunned. He said he’d never seen that before, where someone’s vision gets better like that. I told him about MPR, of course!”

“I’ve also experienced improvements with dry eyes and night vision,” Rebecca adds.

“Before starting on MPR, I also had pretty bad brain fog and memory problems,” Rebecca says, “and it seemed to be getting worse. I think it was an after effect from the chemo. But after a few weeks on MPR, I was able to think much more clearly. It got the cobwebs out of my head, so that was a huge relief.”

“My hair’s gotten a bit thicker, too,” she adds. “Not a lot, but it’s noticeable.”

“I also had osteoarthritis in my foot,” she says, “and I would hop around school with tears in my eyes. (Rebecca has been an elementary special ed teacher for 34 years.) But since being on MPR, the arthritis has cleared up. I was on arthritis medicine and pain pills, and now I’m off of both.”

“My cholesterol went down to normal after the third or fourth month, too,” Rebecca says, “so now I don’t need cholesterol meds anymore. In fact, I’m not on any meds at all now! I’m not even on the shingles medicine. I don’t need it. And let me tell you, I’m saving a lot of money by not having to pay all those copays anymore.”


“I’ve even got my dog Woofie on MPR!” Rebecca says. “We call him Woofie because when he was little he couldn’t bark. He’d just make a little ‘woof’ sound, so my daughter named him Woofie. He’s half Spitz, half terrier.”

“At 14 years old, Woofie couldn’t jump up onto the bed, which was so sad! His hair was coming out, too — it was almost all gone. The vet gave us medicine for him, but it wasn’t helping.”

“Now, after I’ve been giving him MPR for a few months,” Rebecca says, “he can jump up on the bed again, his hair is growing back in, and he can even chase squirrels again. He wakes me up every morning with his eyes all bright and shiny, just waiting for his purple rice!”
