Well, a couple weeks without my Noni Juice, and I felt like I was in a permanent bad mood. Grouchy, jumpy, achy. No fun. I finally picked some more Noni Juice up last night ago and doubled my dose. I didn't really have time to think about my emotions much today because our schedule was so busy. However, the 'grouchies' are gone for the most part... and my patience is back. Patience is so important when you have kids and pets. My pain is quite lessened, too, which makes think my original suspicion was true: Noni Juice seems to help my other medications/supplements work more effectively. My body is stabilizing once again, and I'm so glad. I've been buying the inexpensive Rexall Noni Juice at WalMart, take 1 oz per day. May double it through the stress of the holidays . It's hard to describe the mood improvement; maybe equal to taking Valium? No decrease in energy at all, but the hair-trigger responses to stress really mellow out. A feeling of hope has returned. It's more than just an aleviation of pain; my thoughts processes are actually mellower -- if that makes any sense, LOL. It's worth the $10 a bottle for me .
