Amazing Sombra Goop Saves Yet Another Set of Achey Joints!

08 Feb

We got a big kick out of this posting, which, as luck would have it, is from the one and only M.A. Bjarkman, one of the founding goddesses and leading lights of The ConferenceWorks!, the generous hosts of so many of my weekend trainings.  (They’re currently featuring the awesome likes of Greg Braden, Donna Eden and David Feinstein, Joseph Chilton Pearce and Geneen Roth.) 

But I digress.  The point is, M.A. wrote us glowingly and gratefully about how we did her a true solid by telling her about that fabulous, magical, pain-relieving glop:  SOMBRA. Check it out - truly, this is the ultimate testimonial for a terrific product.  She writes:   

I am stunned! After several years of nagging and at times extreme pain, and now preparing to go into surgery for both knees -- and still desperate about extreme arthritis pain in both hands I feel as if I have experienced a miracle!

I have used the gel on hands and knees for over a week, but after just a couple of days I had almost complete relief from pain!!!

For two years I have not been able to go up or down steps; my knees were too painful and I feared they would collapse on me.

This weekend I went to a museum and walked all around for hours and UP and DOWN steps in several places.

I can think of nothing I have done differently other than use the Gel!  I read the ingredients and wonder where the magic is. I suppose I don't need to know as long as the magic works!

I am most grateful!
