By my second week with the Avacen equipment I was very familiar and comfortable with it. I went from using it once a day for 30 minutes, to twice a day for 30 minutes. My first week gave me one great result: sleep. To some people that may not seem like much, but if you suffer from insomnia like I do, then you understand that it’s a big deal. So going into my second week I was very excited to see if I noticed any changes.
Week 2: It was very similar to week one, with the exception that I fell asleep a lot faster and stayed asleep. I didn’t wake up tired or drowsy but instead I felt rested. My arthritis had no changes yet, but I was still hopeful. Just like any medication you start, it takes time. You don’t always see results right away and in some cases it takes one to two months.
Week 3: By the end of the week, the inflammation I had in my left foot that I had been suffering from for several weeks was gone. My pain was minimal and I wasn’t limping anymore. My doctor had tried injecting my foot with a cortisone shot and it worked temporarily but the pain came back, I’m on prednisone but it isn’t helping my foot at all and I’ve been taking most of my medications for months so it’s safe to say that the only change is the Avacen trial.
I was sure that the first thing Avacen would fix was my hands, just because that’s what I’m putting in there every time I use it. Even though I read the information about how it works and what it does, “it incorporates heat therapy and negative pressure to increase local circulation to infuse heat into a unique vascular network, located in the palm of the hand. Raising the blood temperature at this “single point treatment” (the palm) increases blood temperature throughout the body naturally via the circulatory system. This can benefit the entire body.”
My first thought was simply that I had to be able to put whatever body part I wanted fixed inside of the equipment in order for it to work, but it truly does what the description stated. I’ve always had tingling and numbness in my fingers and toes. Since I’ve been using the Avacen treatment there are some days when I don’t feel tingling in either one. To me, that’s pretty amazing.
Going into the trial, I was a bit skeptical. Not because I didn’t think the Avacen treatment worked, but because I thought I was beyond repair. I didn’t think anything could help me, I’ve changed medications several times in the past few years and my illness has been getting worse over the years as well. However, in speaking with the CEO I felt more confident about it because he truly wanted it to work for me and he gave me so many testimonials of people who are a lot sicker than I am.
I like to live a hopeful life. So if in a matter of three weeks these small victories were made in the fight against rheumatoid arthritis, imagine what can happen in six months to a year. Remission is an attainable goal.
