: The report I got was that it is good stuff but "iffie" for arthritis pain. It is not an anti inflamatory, which Vioxx is, but has a lot of value to it. Here is the report on it from another forum.
: Here's what I can tell you. Green Barley has some
: remarkable properties in it, and is actually quite
: a substance. I have a belief it is worth using if
: one desires, but, I'm not sure about making claims
: about it curing or helping anything to a great extent. I'm not suggesting it won't, because it
: has the potential to, but I don't think anyone can
: say that with any good science to back it up yet.
: It is something that with continual use, can help
: your overall health and has a unique antioxidant
: in it, so I like it myself.
: P.S. I sleep the best after hitting the snooze button, but can't sleep longer than 2 hours at the longest...Good luck,,, Gramps
: : : : I saw your post was at 2:06 am.
: : : I have had a terrible time trying to sleep, since taking all the stuff for arthritis. I read on another post that 74% of arthritis people suffer from insomnia frequently. I received a lot of suggestions and am in the middle of all of them now with some results. [not great but better]
: : : Hang in there, we have to beat it....Gramps
: : :
: : : : : :I haven't heard of it or if I did, I forgot already. Let me check with a guy on another forum who I have a lot of faith in, and When he responds, I'll let you know his thoughts.
: : : : : The little I know is that Vioxx takes the swelling down but is not a pain reliever, although in my case, much of the pain left with the swelling. I had your flu like symptems when I forgot to take the Vioxx. Are you taking the 12 1/2 or 25 mg dose?
: : : : : I take 1500 to 3000 mg of glucosamine sulfate/chondroiten daily [depending on my memory], 2 flaxseed tablets, fish oil tablets, vitamins C,D,and E, and Tylenol, eat cold water fish, mostly salmon, and am trying [but cheating] to stay off dairy products, nightshade veggies, [need a substitute for tomatoes] alcohol, slipped up at lunch yesterday and caffine.
: : : : : I excercise daily and am trying to make stretching and water excercising a bigger part of my regimen.
: : : : : Needless to say, I have no life right now except work and fighting this damn arthritis.
: : : : : I'm going right to the other forum and ask about Green Barley juice. Maybe I'll try it too....Gramps
: : : : : Do you know if GREEN BARLEY JUICE helps with the pain of arthritis? I have read many glowing testamonials about the benefits of it, but don't want to waste MORE money on a "quack" remedy.
: : : : : : I am currently taking VIOXX and want to stop because of all the side effects...elevated blood pressure, flu-like symptoms, swelling, etc.
: : : : : : Any thoughts on this?
: : : : Gramps, thank you for your kind post. I will be looking forward to what you find out.
: : Yes, I do suffer from insomnia. I sleep okay in the late mornings but the nights are a different story. Today, I didn't take my Vioxx (25mg.) and I hurt so bad I can hardly get around. I don't know which is worse... the arthritis or the so-called pain relief. Did you ever find out about the Green Barley Juice?
I do appreciate you checking on this for me. Although it doesn't look like the "miracle" we all are looking for, I will probably give it a try. I don't remember if I asked you or not, but is it better to take Vioxx in the am or pm?
