Testimony Tuesday

Ashley's Plexus Testimonial

"This is a pic of me in the ER during one of the many panic attacks I used to suffer from and I was convinced I was going to die. If you’ve ever experienced this, then you know it’s by far one of the most horrifying things—ever! To lighten the mood, Baron said, “You look so pretty in that hospital gown, I’m going to take your picture.” I have such a great husband, amazing son, and I live a happy life. So why in the heck did the ER doctor tell me, “There’s nothing wrong with you. Your stats are normal. Here’s some Xanax. Go on home now….” **insert huge question mark here**

Ugh…more Xanax…to add to the growing pile of pills, antidepressants, and sleeping pills.
This leads me to my one-year update on my health journey with Plexus. Since I began taking the products late Oct 2013, I have not had one single anxiety or panic attack and I'm off all of my antidepressants. I no longer suffer from insomnia, nor do I need any of those awful sleeping pills that would have me feeling sluggish and lethargic the next day. I’m no longer a doctor’s problem patient and I don’t need to be a guinea pig for the various medications that should have “fixed me” but instead only caused more problems and side effects that would lead to me needing yet another medication.

I also haven’t had any bladder or yeast infections, which I’d get on almost a monthly basis, thus getting another Cipro prescription. And instead of getting sick almost every single month, I now maybe get sick with a cold two or three times a year! My eczema and acne breakouts are cleared up—my back, arms, chest, and legs used to be riddled with it. My stomach doesn’t hurt as often as it used to…at one point doctors thought I “might” have an ulcer, but they never could figure out exactly why my tummy would hurt almost every time I ate. And for those who are wondering about my weight (which does fluctuate…hello, that happens to ALL of us even on the very best supplements out there!) I’m still maintaining the lowest body fat I’ve ever had—recently just dropping 3 pounds by adding our new product Block to my regimen.

I strongly believe SO many issues are rooted in an unhealthy gut (gastrointestinal issues, leaky gut, candida overgrowth) and by tuning up our insides and getting our bodies working the way God intended is vital to our overall health. We can't control some of the foods we eat. If you don't eat organic, wild, grassfed—then the meats are loaded with antibiotics that were given to the animal to keep it alive and steroids to make it grow bigger and faster. And guess what? Every time you eat at a restaurant, you’re eating those exact meats! Even “Prime” meat is NOT necessarily natural or grass fed. I encourage you to Google it and see for yourself. If you consume a diet high in simple carbs and starches, artificial sweeteners like aspartame and products that say “diet” or “fat free,” if you live in an environment where invisible toxins most likely lurk in the air we breathe (mold, pollution, etc.), if you drink tap water that could have contaminants in it, and if you take certain medications like antibiotics and birth control…Then did you know that ALL of those factors KILL the much needed healthy bacteria in your GI tract, throwing your intestinal “eco system” into a smorgasbord for the bad yeast and fungus to thrive…leading your body to experience a whole slew of side effects and a lot of them now scientifically proven to be directly linked to autoimmune disorders?

Trying to eat healthy is important, but as I said above even some of those “healthy” choices you make might not be as healthy as you think. Did you know that 80% of our immune system is in your intestinal tract?? Which is why I strongly believe that nothing is more important than supplementing high quality probioticsvitamins, and natural supplements to help combat our bodies against these toxins and impurities…and keep our immune system functioning the way God intended in the first place."
