I smell like lavender and peppermint essential oils right now, sort of like a candy cane during the holidays but in reality it is a mix of essential oils rubbed into tired arthritic body parts, mostly my back and hip and they help with some relief. Not much, but enough that I don’t feel completely insane.
I had a rough month, my pain almost always at a 10 and a lot of nausea and headaches and flu like symptoms. Seems like I quite possibly have caught a flu bug but I am not overly concerned. Normally I get Pneumonia every year and am on several rounds of antibiotics, so this year having nothing more than what *might* be a flu is a beautiful thing.
I know that I am only feeling as healthy as I have been because of Plexus products. My weight loss and inches loss have been slow but consistent. My IBS symptoms 99% gone and nearly all my other health woes have also been fixed by the healing in my gut. Sometimes, I still fear drinking a glass of milk and then remember that I can and I won’t get sick. I love that feeling, the feeling of not being afraid of consuming something.
You see, my stomach issues had become so bad that even water would often set me off. I was quite literally at my wits end, not able to consume anything and not be sick. Coffee, tea, milk, water, never mind actual food – all made me good and sick.
Now? I can and do eat fruit and berries and can drink juice and milk and LOTS of water and coffee and whatever else I want, though my appetite is curbed away from sweets for the most part it is nice to know that I don’t have to AVOID eating them, I CAN eat, I just don’t HAVE to snack/eat the sugars I was.
A year ago I never would have thought that I would have energy.
I never thought I would be cooking or cleaning.
I never thought that I would be alert enough to memorize scripture and take time to REALLY pray.
A year ago I doubted I would be alive by the time I hit my 30th birthday and now that I am 30 I feel great.
I have lost over 20lbs, that’s 20 lbs of butter and I have lost just as many inches off my waist, hips and thighs. I have a long way to go but at least I know I am on the path to being healthy. Which is a far cry from wondering if I would even be alive today.
God is good.
