It’s been just over a year since I started taking Plexus products. A friend who I knew a decade ago and was living at home with her family started talking about these awesome products and how they were helping her through her “worst pregnancy ever” and how it became her “best pregnancy” once she started drinking a “pink drink” each day. While I was excited for her and the results she was seeing, a better pregnancy, improved IBS, no more pain, better sleep, more energy during the day, less naps, and so much more, I simply thought that it wouldn’t work for me, because nothing before had.
After her pregnancy, which was her 4th baby she was excited to share that she was able to continue to nurse her baby without having to supplement unlike all of her previous pregnancies and she was only ten pounds from her pre-pregnancy weight.
Then, I saw that her sister who is a Midwife, and who assisted in delivering my son, was using these products too, and then her mom and even her children! My interest was more than peaked. I was at a point where I literally felt like I wouldn’t live to see the new year and I was only 29 years old. So when I saw that this Mennonite family was spending the money on these products, sharing such intimate results with others and getting help with problems I had I figured I had nothing to lose by trying them.
So nearing the end of September of 2014 I placed my first Plexus order. My friend said if I ordered the pink drink AKA the Plexus Slim and the BioCleanse for gut health she would send me a free bottle of Probio5 from her own stash.
I received the products ordered from Plexus first and began taking them and called myself the “Plexus skeptic”. After all, year and YEARS of testing, medications, therapy, exercise… and the list goes on, with nothing helping me I really didn’t expect a plant based product line to do me any good. I felt beyond repair.
On September 26th I started taking the products. Here is what I said
Day 1 – The Plexus Skeptic
I placed my order earlier this month from Shelly’s plexus page and even with seeing all the results and testimonials I have my doubts that this will help me. However, I thought I should keep a little diary just in case it works.
I started the Slim and the BioCleanse today and was expecting my body to go full on angry with IBS symptoms and heart burn or some nasty taste in my mouth. It’s been several hours since I took it and I have had no tummy issues whatsoever which really shocked me because my system seems to hate everything these days.
The “pink drink” tastes like cherry coolaid and maybe a bit of fruit punch. It was much tastier than I had expected because Plexus doesn’t have a flavor written on this product. I definitely can see myself drinking this every day!
The Bio Cleanse also surprised me. While I have only had one dose I can’t advocate for any of these products working or not but again this hasn’t upset my stomach either. Normally with any type of capsule the plastic/chemical smell makes me nauseous when I open the bottle. I was expecting there to be that strong odor and I stuck my nose right in the bottle and it smelled like AIR. I even had my mom smell it to be sure I didn’t have a broken nose or something. So I was able to take them without gagging from smell or taste.
So far so good.
The next day I wrote
Day 2 – The Plexus Skeptic
Yesterday I drank all the water recommended. Considering I am not a water drinker that alone is a huge change. Drank the Slim again this morning when I woke up and took the BioCleanse.
Was fully expecting to be sick because I once again have a migraine but I can happily say that I have not had any tummy troubles like I do to pretty much everything else. Weighed myself yesterday and then today (I weigh myself every day, its torture) and I was surprised to see that I was down 1.6 lbs. Not sure if that is Plexus or normal fluctuation. We will see.
So far I am happy!
Oh, and not sure if this was a Plexus thing or just a weird day but last night when I normally snack I didn’t crave anything salty and I went for the chocolate covered almonds, which I only had 3 of and my night craving was gone.
After that I was no longer a skeptic. In the first week I lost weight and inches, my IBS was GONE, I could eat and drink dairy, I was sleeping, my cravings were gone, my snacking was gone, I was awake and I had energy during the day. I felt good for the first time in years.
By Christmas of 2014 I was done with 6 valium a day and off of one anti-depressant, for the first time since 2007. Since then I have lost over 30lbs and kept it off, I have earned money on products I ordered, my mom has been taking the products because she was amazed by the difference in ME, my pain levels are much more easily controlled even with an RA and Degenerative Disc disease diagnosis, I haven’t had a single flu or infection and sooo much more!
The best part though? I feel alive again. I went years feeling like I was merely co-existing in a world in which I didn’t belong. There were MANY times I begged God to take me home, I cried out to Him asking why I was still here. I don’t feel like that anymore. Every day is a new challenge and a new adventure.
I am excited to see how Plexus continues to work in me over the next year and I would love to talk to you more about it! Women who have had infertility from PCOS and other issues have become pregnant with Plexus and carried healthy full term babies, men have got on board and us Plexus people have a slogan saying “Real men don’t wear pink, they DRINK it”.
So many people are free of heart meds, cholesterol meds, thyroid meds, no longer suffering from lyme disease and its symptoms, having less flare ups in autoimmune diseases or complete remission.
It truly is AMAZING how something natural and plant based can heal us from the inside in such profound ways! Want to do your own research for your own symptoms? Google your issue + leaky gut and be amazed by how even mental illness is being affected by poor gut health!
