About Us - Why We Sell Thunder God Vine Root Extract

They say that necessity is the mother of all invention.  I believe this to be true.

My name is Vanessa Copley, and my husband and myself run this little store, and we do it for a good reason.  I have been diagnosed with a rheumatic condition since 2005.  The pain that a rheumatic condition can bring is intense, debilitating and life-changing.  Anyone with Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, or any number of rheumatic conditions can attest to this.

2 years ago, my Rheumatologist decided that she wanted to put me on Plaquinil for my condition.  I took the medication faithfully for 6 months, experiencing no great relief in my symptoms  - but just a little - enough to give me hope.  But soon I started experiencing some very alarming side effects.  Many of them were cognitive - I went from a sharp minded business leader to someone spelling words phonetically - (for instance, I would spell "thought" "thot" or "eat" "eet").  I could not think.  I could not remember anything.  My job was suffering, my children were suffering and I was just barely able to piece together that this decline in my intellectual capability was a direct cause of the Plaquinil.

I went to my Rheumatologist.  She told me that no one else had ever had that experience n her practice, so she was sure that wasn't it.  She wanted me to keep trying.  I stopped the medication.

Soon after, I was able to spell and write again, my memory came back and my cognition repaired itself.  I'm still, to this day, slower than I used to be, and I don't think I will ever gain that back 100%.  But on my next visit to my doctor, she decided to put me on methotrexate instead.

I looked up the medication, and saw the HORRIFYING list of side effects.  Methotrexate is a chemotherapy drug.  It was the last straw for me. 

So I decided to look up natural cures. I went for quite a while with no medication, living fully in my pain, stiffness and other daily indignities of my condition.

Then my husband found Thunder God Vine Root online.  We researched it, and it sounded like just the ticket.

But dang!  I couldn't BUY it anywhere!

So, we decided to become the supplier, live the story and put our money where our mouths are.

Months later - I am feeling AWESOME.  I have more mobility, more flexibility, less pain, AND I have lost weight.  My husband is using it as well for weight loss, and its helped tremendously.
