    I saw my dr. today about my arms and legs aching and he said he thinks it's definently from dealing with health problems (ic--which isn't bad right now, Barrett's Esophagus, Arthritis and constant yeast) pain and depression and possibly dealing with Fibromyalgia. So he's trying me on Cymbalta for a month to see if that helps. Has anyone been on Cymbalta? had any bad side effects from it?? I have my fingers crossed that this stuff helps....or at least takes the edge off things. Roxie

        Hello Roxie. What is freeze dried Aloe Vera? I buy Aloe Vera caplets at the health counter in the durg store but there is no mention of freeze dried on the bottle. I hope I am not using the wrong thing. Ziggy

          HI Zygala87,
          As I understand it, the only way to 'keep' and protect the long poly-monecular chains that mimic the same long poly-monecular chains of the mucus lining in the bladder is to flash freeze dry the Aloe Vera...or you can drink the organic AloeVera gel from a good health food store but it will usually has a tiny amount of citric acid to preserve it. We buy my Freeze dried Aloe Vera online and we have gotten it at the local Whole Foods store. Roxie
