My Journey My Dandelion Miracle....

You know after everything I'd been told my body needed to take, to mask the pain to help me cope I found something that really helps me and when I say it helps me... it helps me in more ways than one.

What if you could take something that comes from your own backyard?  If you don't feel like growing it you don't have to they now supply this at your local health food store in both bulk, capsules and tea.  With this simple plant based supplement I have been able to manage my endometriosis and knee pain, lose water weight, forget about cramps, reduced my headaches,  regulate my sugars, flush my kidney and support my liver functions.

What could this miracle be?  Dandelion root!  I started taking Dandelion root sometime in April of 2010 and somewhere after a month or so I noticed my chronic knee pain was gone, then the pains I generally felt from my endometriosis were gone as well.  I have since made Dandelion root a very crucial part of my day and take a tablespoon in the am and a second one in the pm religiously.
