I mean for fuck sake.

Are they making this up? I know JP etc is old news and we all know it's bollocks but this claim? Are they serious?! Three months and it's totally gone.

Can anyone beat this for a JP et al claim?

Ugh ffs. JP annoys me enough as it is but this is ridiculous.

I was told it could cure my sons asthma.

I know someone who claims it cured her sons excema - yet he still has terrible excema.

Dammit, if only I had sen this before having a total hysterectomy sadhmm

My annoying FB JP person had it as a cure for fibromyalgia and CF yesterday.

In answer to your question I got told that juice plus would -
Get rid of my forehead lines (I hadn't actually asked about it so thanks for that friend)
Cure Crohn's disease
Help me lose two stone in a month and get rid of cellulite

Is there anything JP can't do?!

Someone selling that Aloe stuff once told me it would cure my spina bifida.

MouthyMoo Sun 03-Apr-16 16:01:01

shock. Cure spina bifida? That's just fucking insulting!

How did you react?

EveryoneElsie Sun 03-Apr-16 16:09:03

Just start reporting them to Trading Standards. angry

Juice Plus can cure my rheumatoid arthritis! Huzzah!

I pretty much just inject myself with toxic medicines for shits and giggles. hmm

70isaLimitNotaTarget Sun 03-Apr-16 16:17:09

Still not believing it until I see the head man

Hopefully Head Man = Psychiatrist nor Person in Charge hmm

OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! (Nope, He won't help either, love)

Oh yes. JP/forever/giving up gluten will cure my low white cell count and stop me producing anti white cell antibodies
I'm sure my consultant would tell me to give up gluten rather than giving me £1500 worth of injections a month hmm

And nothing to do with the meds she can now stop taking obviously.

Bloody pyramid schemes. You may find the thread in Money Matters interesting, they are fighting the good fight: www.mumsnet.com/Talk/legal_money_matters/2602220-MLM-Bot-Watch-17-chat-about-Utah-based-tragicomic-cultastic-racketeering-scamalangadingdongs-like-Forever-Living-Ariix-Herbalife-Younique-Juiceplus-etc-etc-etc

Snake oil.

We have a very determined juice plus neighbour.

It can cure my dds adhd, she has statements from people to that effect apparently, and there was a conversation where she queried what my children died from (dd told her that she had a brother and sister in heaven) 'just in case' there was something she could help with if I get pregnant again.

I now spend most of my time avoiding her.

JessTitchener Sun 03-Apr-16 16:51:04

I know a JP bot who claims it has 'cured' his daughter's complex SEN.
Of course it has.

Mumberjack Sun 03-Apr-16 16:56:11

Elsa I would have slapped her for those horrendously crass comments flowers

ShutUpSirius Sun 03-Apr-16 16:56:22

I was told FL was a cure for my discoid excema. When I asked for documentation and studies I was told she would get them.

TaliZorahVasNormandy Sun 03-Apr-16 17:13:47

It should be made legal to punch these people. If this shit worked, most doctors would be out of a job.

TiredButFineODFOJ Sun 03-Apr-16 17:29:32

Oil pulling cures HIV and cancer according to the lady in my gym...

Mooey89 Sun 03-Apr-16 17:32:33

Mine keeps telling me about the capsules for children. For the love of God. You don't even know what's in it!

PerspicaciaTick Sun 03-Apr-16 17:41:11

Do you think the sellers come out with this crap because
a) they genuinely believe it and are too thick to understand what they are talking about.
b) they know they are spouting lies, but don't care because they will do whatever it takes to earn money.
c) they are being coerced in some way which means they have choice but to post what they are told.

OddBoots Sun 03-Apr-16 17:50:51

MouthyMoo I didn't say anything but I gave her a look that made my feelings very clear - I had to deal with her in another professional context on an ongoing basis so I didn't want to cause a fuss.
