      Yes that is correct, my sister with fibromyalgia noticed aid form tinctures when she visited. But most of all she got betterform changing to a plant based diet, which I am very happy for, since she lives in a place where it’s very hard to get more tinctures. It’s a shitty illness to struggle with, many don’t get taken seriously at all unfortunately.
