►My mom is 76 and has colitis.  The blackberry cider has helped her get better, she hasn't been in the hospital in a month and has no signs or symptoms of IBS.  Thank You.  (T Swanson, Longdale OK)
 
 
►Hi Jennifer - Just to let you know, I searched all over Houston, TX - including the health food supermarkets Whole Foods and Central Market - and the traditional stores, too -  for blackberry juice. I went online and you are the only one I found with it. I was glad to see you sell through ebay because I prefer to buy online using PayPal security, so I bought 2 bottles.
 
Here is why blackberry juice is important to me:
30 years ago, when I was in college, I contracted something that made me terribly sick. When I recovered from the main illness, I was still unable to maintain intestinal control and could not go to class. I had a 2 year old and I needed to graduate that summer; but I didn't see how I could make it - because doctors gave me shots and pills and nothing worked. 
 
A woman from Sterling City, TX told me her grandfather was full-blood Indian and that their Indian remedy was blackberry juice - "not blackberries," she said, "just the juice." I was desperate and would have tried anything.  Fortunately, I was able to find a health food store back then that had canned blackberry juice - which did not taste as good as yours - but it stopped my intestinal problem when doctors were unable to.
 
Years have passed without problems; but recently, I was diagnosed with IBS - irritable bowel syndrome - which is not as bad as what I had 30 years ago - but can be a problem when it hits. I remembered the woman and tried to find the juice. Finally found you and ordered through ebay - and to my surprise, it is absolutely DELICIOUS! And it works as well today as it did then. I am so happy you sell it. I wish you could get Whole Foods to carry it just for the ease of buying it. But I am SO GLAD you sell it and please keep doing so.   Thanks to the healing properties of the blackberry juice, I did graduate that summer!
Thank you. G. Sayles

  My mother heard about the Blackberry Cider helping with Nausea, and she had just started chemotherapy for the 2nd time! She was very sick through her first rounds of chemo, so we thought it wouldn't hurt to try this.  To our surprise it helped!  She drank about a cup of Blackberry Cider a day and it really helped with the nausea!                   (S. Mashburn: Conyers, GA)
 
  I had a difficult time during my pregnancy with morning sickness.  I was starting to feel a little desperate until my husband told me about the Blackberry Nectar and Cider.  He is friends with the McMillan's and they gave him a bottle for me to try.  It really helped!  It was very reassuring to me and the baby to find something natural that helped with the nausea!  (K. Jones: Tifton, GA)
 
  We have the article written about the Blackberry Nectar and Blackberry Cider hanging in our store, and we have many repeat customers who buy the Blackberry Nectar for Nausea.  The majority of the customers (buying the Nectar) are cancer patients and we hear many heart-wrenching stories, so we are very glad that we can help them by carrying the Blackberry Nectar! (clerk at South GA Pecan: Valdosta, GA)
 
  A year ago I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma.  Jennifer sent me a bottle of Blackberry Nectar and Blackberry Cider to try out, and kept me in steady supply!  It really did make me feel better!  I think it is awesome that something so simple as blackberry juice could be so helpful when you feel so bad!  Through faith and prayer, I am now cancer free!  (K. Phelts: Atlanta, GA)
 
  I am purchasing the blackberry cider for 2 family members currently undergoing chemotherapy and it has truly made a difference.  Thank you for this product.  I tell everyone about the difference this product has made in the lives of these people.    V. Davis (Stockbridge, GA)
  I am and have been plagued with IBS since I was a child.  Most of my family has been.  I recently went to Hawaii on a family holiday and only got to go on one site seeing trip.  The rest of 9 days were spent in the hotel room and two nights in the hospital.  Nothing they gave me did any good.  I was so sick when I got home and my Granddaughter said she would nurse me.  She called her other Grandmother who told her to give me blackberries or blackberry juice.  My husband went straight to the store and bought me some blackberries.  I ate them and the diarrhea stopped immediately.  On our way back from Virginia over the 4th of July we found a road side stand with Blackberry Cider and it works just as well.  It's a miracle.  I have lived with this all my life and I don't ever want to be without some type of Blackberry, be it fruit, juice or cider.  Y. Zodun, Acworth, GA.

  As an oncology nurse, I was excited to find out about the Blackberry Nectar.  I bought some to give patients and ended up drinking some of it myself when I had a stomach virus.  Testing it on myself made me a true believer, b/c after drinking the Nectar, I was no longer suffering from the side effects of the stomach virus! (Haynes: Tifton, GA)

 
  I have been suffering from monthly migraines since my teens.  Until I found the blackberry cider, I had no relief from the nausea that comes with the severe headaches.  Most migraine medicines have to be taken before the migraines start to be effective but even if I don't catch the migraine in time, I can sip on a cup of blackberry cider anytime I need to and it eases the nausea.  Even though the pain of the migraines is still unbearable at times, it is such a relief not to have to deal with the nausea!  I order by the case and I make sure I always have blackberry cider in stock!  L. Watson Colleyville, TX
 
Hi Jennifer,
    Thanks for shipping me the Blackberry Nectar. Prior to receiving it I had already begun my first cycle of Chemotherapy and had a great deal of difficulty from side effects. My Doctor made some changes in how we were receiving the chemo and managing it afterwards. Prior to the second round I bagan a protocol of having  Blackberry Nectar cocktails each day at 10 AM and 3 PM. I continue to do so. I have 4 ounces plus 6 ounces of mix. I tried different mixes (of blackberry nectar and other drinks) and the one that I like is Watermelon Ice Gatorade. The Gatorade has a slight berry taste and it does not conflict with the Blackberry.  I am sure that the adjustments the Doctor made helped a lot but I feel the Nectar is also contributing to a better experience. No way to be sure but it makes a nice drink and provides more fluids.
Sincerely,
D. L. Johnson

When we had our store in Enigma, repeat customers came in and bought the Blackberry Nectars and Ciders by the case for Nausea.  Some still do from our website.  We are in the process of trying to have it tested now.  If you would like to send us your testimony, please email it to us at jennATsoutherngracefarmsDOTcom.   I have the website set up where you can buy by the case at a cheaper price than by the bottle, especially for those of you who are using it for medicinal purposes.  Please share your story with us, we would love to hear it!  It can be completely anonymous if you like.  Jennifer McMillan: Enigma, GA.
