Miracle Story Update: How Sunfood President Avoided Carpal Tunnel Surgery

Sep 13th 2013

Recently, Sunfood President and Top Superfood Dude Robert DeuPree was considering surgery to stop the constant pain his Carpal Tunnel was causing him. Two weeks later, he threw his wrist brace into the garbage.

One product was all it took. Sunfood Peppermint Liniment.

Check out his original story, plus an amazing update…

“I had been suffering with a bad case of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in my right wrist for about a year. It was caused by sitting at my desk working on my computer for hours on end. I was having numbness in my fingers and pain in my wrist that shot up to my elbow. The constant pain made doing my job miserable.

One day I decided to try Old Fashioned Peppermint Liniment lotion. I was totally blown away when within just a few minutes, the pain from my Carpal Tunnel began to subside! After a week of use, there has been a tremendous change from almost unbearable to a slight irritation from time to time. I believe that Old Fashioned Peppermint Liniment lotion acted as a natural cure for my carpal tunnel. The constant pain I suffered from is gone.”
The Update: Surgery Avoided!

That was after one week of use. Now it’s been almost two months. The change has been so monumental that Robert barely needs to use his Peppermint Liniment anymore…
“I can’t believe how well this stuff works. For the first week, I used it a couple of times per day. Then I was able to cut back to once a week, then once every two weeks. As I write this,  I haven’t used any Peppermint Liniment for over two weeks. I can detect a slight irritation in my wrist—the only reason I thought of it was because I was writing this update. Just now, I put some liniment on my palm and wrist, and within a few minutes I can feel the cool soothing sensation working its way into my system. Now that slight irritation has been reduced to what feels like a slight pressure. Pretty amazing, considering the fact that a few weeks ago, I was going to schedule surgery.”


What Makes Old Fashioned Peppermint Liniment So Powerful?

The first two active ingredients are the key — both are simply sulfur compounds!

DMSO – DimethylSulfoxide, derived from plant pulp, 25% by volume
OptiMSM – MethylSulfonylMethane, organic sulfur, 12% by volume

Research has confirmed that MSM, a naturally-occurring form of dietary sulfur, has "anti-inflammatory effects.”1


A solvent that quickly penetrates the skin, DMSO is also a sulfur compound. Studies found that DMSO "decreased pain intensity" and provided subjects with "an overall sense of relief...with results approaching absence of pain."2


The Power of Sulfur

Sulfur is an essential element that is "found in the proteins of most body tissues."3 Connective tissue and cartilage contain “proteins with flexible sulfur bonds”4 in order to “maintain elasticity.”3 Both MSM and DMSO are sulfur compounds that have been used as natural remedies to address "pain and inflammation associated with arthritis."3 MSM may also be sufficient method to "improve joint flexibility, reduce stiffness and swelling, [and] reduce pain, [as well as] scar tissue."3


Want Beautiful Skin?

Not only does MSM have the potential to reduce pain and inflammation, it’s also known to contribute to radiant skin. The benefits of sulfur strike again! Use Sunfood MSM lotions on scar tissue, wrinkles, blemishes, acne, and skin irritations — or just to have youthful, glowing skin!
