Last October I attended the ACAM medical/health conference in Las Vegas. In the exhibit hall, I stopped at a booth that was promoting a natural anti-inflammatory, pain relieving product called SOUL. They gave me a sample and told me about the product's benefits. I told them I am a "science-based guy" and that I wanted to see scientific studies that would document the product's claimed benefits. Well, it turns out there are a large number of scientific studies that have been published which document and explain the benefits of SOUL. After reading and evaluating over 80 studies on SOUL and its ingredients, I'm convinced that it is a very effective natural product for the relief of pain and inflammation. In this post, I want to explain why the traditional anti-inflammatory and pain medications are so terribly harmful and then review SOUL's benefits and explain how and why it works.
THE SIDE EFFECTS OF NSAIDs: NSAID anti-inflammatory drugs are very harmful. According to an article in the Journal of Medicine, approximately 107,000 patients are hospitalized annually due to NSAID complications and an estimated 16,500 deaths occur in the U.S. every year just among arthritis patients. NSAIDS damage the sensitive cells in the lining of your GI tract, which actually causes inflammation and leaky gut syndrome. This inhibits your ability to properly digest food and absorb nutrients. Because NSAIDS are very effective pain relievers, many people are not aware of the damage that is being caused in their GI tract when they take NSAIDS.
THE SIDE EFFECTS OF PAIN MEDS: I am most concerned about pain medications that contain acetaminophen (brand name Tylenol). Many prescription pain medications contain acetaminophen and it is available alone or in combination in many of the OTC pain medications. Acetaminophen is extremely toxic to the liver. In fact, acetaminophen-containing products are the #1 cause of liver failure in the U.S. and the most drug overdoses and deaths in the U.S., U.K., Australia and New Zealand are due to acetaminophen. Currently, there are over 600 acetaminophen-containing medications available in the U.S. and Americans consume over 30 billion doses of these medications every year.
ABOUT SOUL: I am VERY excited to have a safe, effective natural product to recommend as an anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving therapy. SOUL is made from the seeds; black cumin, black raspberry, and chardonnay grape seeds. Seeds are super dense sources of plant nutrition. SOUL is a liquid that comes in little foil packets. Just tear off the end tab on the foil packet and squeeze the contents into your mouth. Each packet is a concentrated source of nutrients, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory compounds.
Scientific studies report that the ingredients in SOUL lower all of the major inflammatory markers. In general, inflammation causes pain because the swelling in affected tissues puts pressure on nerves. SOUL quickly reduces inflammation which relieves pain. The ingredients in SOUL have also been shown to be effective against numerous types of cancer. A box of SOUL contains 30 packets and the recommended dose is to consume one packet twice daily. Large individuals and/or obese people should take two packets twice daily.
If you have pain, I suggest you give SOUL a try. Because it reduces inflammation and is rich in antioxidants, SOUL promotes overall health and slow down your aging process. For people who can afford to spend a few extra dollars a day on their health, I think SOUL provides a tremendous value for you health dollar investment.
In closing, I want to acknowledge that SOUL is marketed by Rain International which is a multi-level marketing (MLM) company. I am generally not a fan of MLM products, but I am a great fan of good science. A substantial body of published studies document and explain how and why SOUL works. Hence, I have decided to promote SOUL because it is a natural anti-inflammatory pain relieving product, which provides an effective alternative to the usual anti-inflammatory and pain medications that most people take.
If you sign up for an automatic monthly shipment program (which can be canceled at any time) a box of SOUL costs $65. Taking one packet twice daily would cost $130/month. If you would like to try SOUL, please give me a call at (541) 552-9499 so that I can help place your initial order. SOUL has a very pleasant slightly sweet taste. If you would like to try a sample, please send me a note with your name, address and $3 (which will cover the cost of one sample packet plus mailing) to: Ross Pelton, 994 Morton Street, Ashland, OR 97520.
