MANILA, Philippines – Pain is the Latin word for penance or punishment and because of man’s desire to live pain-free, the use of synthetic painkiller drugs has become very popular. Driven by her ardent desire to find a pain reliever without its usual side effects for her mother who was suffering from the excruciating pains of swollen knee joints due to rheumatoid arthritis,Dr. Myrna Cuerdo embarked on a journey to find an alternative cure.

In an interview, Cuerdo said it was ”Divine” intervention that caused her as a doctor of psychiatry to totally change her outlook in life and her patients’ lives as well when she found out about Oleia two months ago.

Cuerdo started her medical practice in 1988, specializing in integrative medicine and naturopathy and is currently holding her clinic at the St. Martin’s Outreach Center in Quezon City. She was amazed to learn that it was possible for a drug-free product like Oleia to instantly relieve pains. Convinced of its curative effect,Cuerdo now prescribe it to her patients over the synthetic NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) like paracetamol and ibuprofen.

She was introduced to Oleia in an event led by the Philippine Convention on Alternative Medicine where she bought the 650mg Oleia softgel capsules for her mother, who was then bedridden. The result was amazing, according to Cuerdo, when she saw her mother walking even faster than her usual gait.

Cuerdo has also proven Oleia to be effective with a number of testimonials from her patients who were afflicted with chronic depression, schizophrenia, and other mental-psychological disorders.

Oleia has been evidently effective to people suffering from muscle pains, lower back pains, frozen shoulders, toothache, stomachache, headache, insect bites, hypertension, goiter, psoriasis, arthritis, prostate and pancreatic cancers. It can likewise help inflammatory conditions like osteoarthritis, multiple sclerosis, rheumatism, gouty arthritis, tendonitis, sinusitis, tennis-golfer’s elbow, fibromyalgia, wrist pain, asthma, gastritis, emphysema, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Alzheimer’s and Parkinsons Disease, migraine, and stroke paralysis.

People in high-impact sports like badminton, tennis and basketball, which are strongly associated with injury, will also highly benefit from this product. Oleia is also in oil form, which has been referred to as “joint lubricant”.
