Ok, Auto Immune Disorder Suffers, Listen Up!

A fellow EBV sufferer sent an article to me that was SO eye opening. It was the most comprehensive article I had ever read about the disease, but sadly it was not written by a doctor…well, not one in the mainstream sense of the word. The author is Anthony William, a medium. Don’t lose me here! He is very educated in natural healing & once you get past the Spirit sitting on his shoulder bit, the rest is very informative. You can read his article here: The Medical Medium.

Wow, huh?! SO many diseases can be traced back to this horrible virus that most people poo~poo & just choose to believe you are lazy because you are tired & never want to do anything.

I looked up his book that this chapter was taken out of & it had a lot of 5 Star reviews so I almost got it. Then I read a review that stated the author ran a contest where if you place a positive review on Amazon, you’d receive a free gift & be entered to win a cash prize. Well, duh…who wouldn’t run on over to Amazon & leave a positive review with that carrot dangled in front of them?! Also, there were a few reviews that said Mr. William did not go into how many supplements to take & what dosage & there also wasn’t a diet or menu outlined in the book. So I went on my own research journey.

It didn’t take me long because if you’ve read any of my other posts, you’ll know I’ve been researching this for 6 years. But everything I come up with is A LOT to take. Meaning, 6-8 pills, 2-3 times a day. I am not a good pill taker so today I researched some different options from Vitacost.com. I have been a customer of Vitacost for more years than I can count. I trust them & have never had a bad experience with them or their products. Our kids haven’t been to the doctor for a sniffle or otherwise for I don’t know how long because of the supplements we give them from Vitacost. We’ve saved $1,000’s because of this awesome company!

Ok, so onto what I found. When you are an EBV sufferer, you need to clean/detox your liver. To do this, you need Probiotics & n-acetyl cysteine (glutathione). My husband & girls already use a Pro Biotic from there called Futurebiotics Longest Living Acidophilus. Now, I on the other hand have been using the Probio5 from Plexus, but that only had 2 of the recommended strains of Acidophilus recommended for a full detox & the Futurbiotics brand has all 3: Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium Longum & Rhamnosus. So I am going to go with what we’ve been using in the past, the Futurebiotics. For the n-acetyl cysteine, I found one at Vitacost with great reviews!

Next you need supplements to boost your immune system.
Vitamins C, A & E.
Selenium
Zinc
Magnesium
B Complex that has B’s: 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 12 & biotin.

THAT would be a lot of pills to take. I looked at some multivitamins both from Vitacost & from Plexus & I couldn’t find any one product that contained everything that was mentioned above.
So then I thought about a vitamin fortified protein powder. I typed that into the search engine on Vitacost & I found Green Foods True Vitality Plant Protein Shake. It has EVERY SINGLE vitamin & mineral mentioned above. Score!!

Next, you need a Co-Enzyme Q10. I found a good one on Vitacost, actually their brand. Reviews were good except there is a strong taste & smell of sulfur, but if you put it into your protein shake, it’s undetectable! SCORE again!

I have this stuff in my cart at Vitacost as we speak & will be checking out soon. Just need to check my cupboards & make sure we don’t need anything else! I always place an order & then 2 days later discover we are out of the girl’s vitamins or something! Ugh!!

I love the Plexus products & I know I was seeing & getting results, but I have such a severe case of EBV that I believe I need something stronger to attack the virus & rid it from my system! Wish me luck!!

Testimony Tuesday ~ Plexus for Weight Loss

I am thrilled with all the messages & questions I am getting about Plexus! Please keep them coming because they are helping me to learn more & more about this amazing company & their products!
One popular question I am getting is about Plexus for weight loss. And I understand, this time of year is so hard to keep your weight in check, let alone take some off! So why not get a little help? I saw Natalie’s story yesterday & just loved it! Because of Plexus she got to look her best on her wedding day. She was full of confidence & just beamed in her wedding pictures! Take a look at her story….

To say that I am pleased with my results so far with Plexus would be a vast understatement. The 1st picture was taken just two weeks before I started with Plexus. I had lost all my baby weight thanks to nursing and was actually content with my body. I’d had a baby and I thought this was as good as it would get. But I was drained and exhausted all the time. I woke up each day just to look forward to going back to bed each night. Then I was introduced to Plexus and decided to give it a try to see if it would help with energy. Well it has done that and much more! 

The 2nd picture was taken this past weekend at our wedding reception. Seeing the look on my husband’s face when he first saw me in my dress was priceless. Being able to walk down those stairs with confidence when introduced by the DJ was priceless. And it is all because I took a leap of faith on these amazing products and this awesome company. Not only have I lost the weight that I’ve been gradually putting on since high school, but I’ve got more energy, I’m sleeping better, I’m eating better because I don’t crave junk all the time, and I’ve been able to stick to an exercise routine for longer than just a few weeks.

Isn’t that amazing & inspiring! I have just started taking the Boost & Block products & will be doing my personal review of them at the end of the week. I am a big sugar junkie & it will be wonderful to be rid of those cravings! I believe I’ve already kicked the pop habit & I’ve noticed that I’m not wanting my morning cup of coffee anymore. I’d much rather have my Pink Drink! 😉 Progress!!

Seriously if you’ve been thinking about asking me about these products please just ask! I would LOVE to share information with you! I would LOVE for all of my friends and family to experience what I have so far. With me there is never any pressure. I just want everyone to feel amazing like I know they can! No need to be going through the motions of life! It’s time to start living it again!

Plexus Review, Week 2

This is how I literally feel inside! I am jumping for JOY!

This is how I literally feel inside! I am jumping for JOY!

Well here I am. Closing in on my 2nd full week of taking Plexus! I have good things to report & one bad. 🙂

Good thing is that my energy level has stayed stable all 12 days I’ve been taking the products. I wake up with energy & it stays the same all day long, meaning I don’t get a spike right after drinking my drink (which I try to do every morning at 9 am) & I don’t then plummet mid day. I honestly don’t know if I’ve EVER woken up WITH energy & I always used to crash between 2 & 3 pm, so this is something new & amazing to me!

 
Also, my mood has continued to be cheery & positive. I haven’t worried about a single thing for the past 2 weeks. And it’s not because I have nothing to worry about. I have 2 teen girls. I have plenty to worry about. It’s just that the ProBio 5 & Slim are working together to level out my hormones, which in turn is helping me to not make mountains out of mole hills. My family is grateful for this. I tended to be a bit dramatic before. :/

And speaking of my family. My girls are in the middle of conditioning for basketball this week. It’s grueling & they come home exhausted. I asked them if they wanted to try the Slim to help them feel better. Both girls tried it. One hated the taste & wouldn’t drink it, the other drank it after a morning conditioning practice & said she felt great the rest of her day & said she’s sure if she wouldn’t have taken it, she wouldn’t have felt as good.

And my sleep has continued to be excellent. I have woken up a few times this past week, but have been able to get right back to sleep. It didn’t take me 2-3 hours like it used to. Again…something new & amazing to me!! 🙂

Now the bad. And honestly it’s not really bad. I finally remembered to take my measurements & over the past week I have not lost anymore inches. I have lost 1 pound though! 😀 I have read that some people actually will gain a little weight when they start this program & then when their gut starts to heal…after about 3 weeks…that is when people start experiencing weight loss. And again, I didn’t start this to lose weight. My 1st priority is to heal my gut, which it is. I have ordered the Boost & the Block to see what that is like. Even though I don’t obsess over my weight, it would be nice to drop about 5-8 pounds. They kinda crept up on me since my last birthday & while it doesn’t bug me all that much, I know I’d feel better to be back at my normal weight.

So that is it for week 2! I am excited for week 3! These last 2 weeks have been so awesome, I can only imagine how great it’s going to continue to get! If you have questions or testimonies to share, I’d love for you to leave them in the comments!!

Not only is that cool that I look better in my jeans, but with that bloat gone it tells me for sure that the junk in my gut is being cleaned out & is being restored to maximum health because of the Plexus TriPlex Combo! So ya, I’m pretty much sold on the product. 🙂

Plexus Tri-Plex Combo Review

I’m on a quest yet again to get my gut healthy. Long time followers know I have EBV, Epstein Barr Virus, one of many fun autoimmune diseases. There is no cure, but you can manage it. I have been able to manage my symptoms quite well with diet over the last 6 years but the older I get, the more symptoms start to develop. The latest being joint pain. My worst symptom is this odd body rash I get. I break out in an uncontrollable itch if I am stressed, nervous, sweaty, eat too many sweets, really just about anything will bring it on.  I can fight it with antihistamines, but I am a person that likes to put as little OTC’s in my body as possible.  After some research, I know that a lot of my EBV symptoms go hand in hand with a yeast over growth, more commonly known as Candida.
During my research on how to rid my body of too much yeast, I learned that you need a combination of a few vitamins, minerals & herbs to do the job. I was taking a handful of Magnesium, Calcium, Vitamin C, B12 complex, acidophilus, olive leaf & a few other things. Because I am NOT a good pill taker, I wasn’t consistent & I gradually slacked off & then altogether quit taking all those pills.

Tri- Plex Combo

Tri- Plex Combo

I’ve never given up my research & I recently discovered Plexus. Well, not recently, but I guess I finally stopped & paid attention to what they have to offer. They are a direct sales company that sells natural supplements to help with weight loss, diabetes control, joint pain & detox. Detox is what I am interested in. I read about their Tri-Plex combo package that contains a 30 day supply of ProBio5, which is a pro-biotic that helps promote good gut bacteria, like what you get in yogurt, only more of it, Bio Cleanse which claims to oxygenate & energize your body. It contains Magnesium & Vitamin C so instead of taking 6 pills twice a day, I’m taking 2 Bio Cleanse twice a day & 1 ProBio 5 once a day. Way easier for me to handle!  The final product is a drink mix called Plexus Slim. It is mostly for weight loss from what I can tell because it’s main selling point is that it should be taken 30 minutes before a meal to help curb your appetite, but it also promotes increased energy & will help you maintain a healthy blood pressure & blood sugar levels.
Today is my 1st full day on these supplements & I haven’t noticed much from the ProBio 5 & the Bio Cleanse, but I didn’t expect to yet. The Plexus Slim has given me a nice energy boost & my mid day funk hasn’t happened & it tastes YUMMY! But it hasn’t curbed my desire for sweets. I inhaled 2 Krackle fun size bars while typing this post out. But maybe over the next few days my sugar cravings will go away. We shall wait & see.

I will post updates at least twice a week throughout the next 30 days to give anyone interested in trying these products a true, honest, real time review. I do not sell Plexus & I am not being compensated for this month long review. My hopes are that if there are others out there with similar issues to mine will find this review helpful if they are trying to decide if Plexus will work for them. It is not a cheap product & there is an auto ship, 2 things that don’t thrill me, but I’m so sick & tired of being sick & tired that I felt it was worth a try.
If you are interested in trying Plexus, I can put you in touch with a representative, or ambassador, as they call themselves. 🙂
