Getting healthy and healing is awesome especially after you’ve had health issues for so long, but it’s not always smooth sailing. The pain medication I had to take for so long after several dental procedures seemed to cause a chain reaction of health events and I’m wondering when it will all end. I’m tired. Part of me is feeling awesome and doing well, but the bumps in the road has me weary and frustrated. I already knew that my road to recovery was going to be long but I didn’t know it was going to be so hard. It probably wouldn’t have been so challenging had I not had so many pain medications that messed me up ~ but here I am.
In a lot of ways, I have continued to heal and feel better and better so there is good news in all of this. But the last couple of weeks have been challenging with my husband working 70+ hours a week and me super sick with a upper respiratory virus that just “needs to run its course.” The cough is making my bladder and kidney cranky after my recent kidney surgery, and causing other symptoms as well. At my check-up this week, my doctor found lumps and sent me for mammograms, ultra sounds and a biopsy. But my cough was so terrible, I was worried about staying still through the procedure. (Everything looks fine, the biopsy is just routine because I’m over 40. I get the final results next week!)
Good news! Not only am I continuing to feel better even with the bumps in the road I had to endure but it’s easier to manage our son’s blood sugar since he started taking the new products I recently discovered called Plexus. And his severe behavior problems that have been demanding our attention for 6 years has gone away. This is a HUGE DEAL!!! You know how a child behaves when they’re tired because they didn’t get enough sleep the night before? Multiply that by 100 and 24/7/365 and that’s what we were up against. The older he got, the worse he became. Criticism and advice from others, treatments from the doctors, diet and exercise, supplements, he WAS allergic to all multiple vitamins so that didn’t help, reading for help online didn’t help ~ NOTHING HELPED!!! Watching what he ate, getting plenty of rest, discipline and accountability, loving patience, and calming supplements only brought his symptoms from a 10 and above down to an 8 and only temporarily (assuming that a 1 is no symptoms.) Giving him Plexus products has completely eliminated those symptoms. So we’re all very relieved to say the least. It wasn’t quick or easy to get to this point, but what helped was consistency, faithfulness and prayer. I figured out what worked and how to give him the products and remained diligent and faithful.
This particular blog is from my heart ~ just me ~ sharing it like it is. Nothing fancy or clever, just sharing about my struggles. My persistent cough has rattled me to the core, the whole biopsy thing shook me, and my husband working endless hours has beaten me down. But God is working and pouring His blessings on our family. I thought I’d share with you so that you can be encouraged.
No matter what you’re going through ~ no matter what your trouble…
You are never alone!
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
No matter what life throws at you ~ you are never alone! God will walk with you and strengthen you. Sometimes we can’t see God working until after the storm, but keep going by faith. He’s got you!
Health and Wellness Tip
Because I mentioned that my son’s blood sugar (T1D) and behavior issues have gotten a lot better since we started Plexus, I’m going to share a little more details as to what we are doing and why it is working. This is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent disease. This is for educational purposes only, based on my experience and personal research.
We all know that gut health is important for digestive and stomach problems. But not everyone knows that it affects blood sugar, behavior and more! There are many physical and mental conditions that have been linked to imbalances in the gut. 90% of Serotonin in the brain is created in the gut. Stress and anxiety can be reduced by balancing the flora in the gut and changes in the gut microbe will alter behavior.
So now we know that a healthy and balanced gut will help improve digestion, immune system function, absorption of nutrients, moods, stress and anxiety ~ but now you also know another thing that depends on a healthy gut ~ blood sugar!
Plexus products work specifically to balance the gut and the blood sugar. It has worked wonders and has been a huge blessing!
TriPlex: My son takes the TriPlex which is Plexus Slim, BioCleanse and ProBio5. Together they work to balance the blood sugar, heal the gut and get rid of toxins. These plant-based products have helped to heal and balance our son’s blood sugar and gut imbalance which helped with a lot of symptoms related to the imbalance.
Plexus Block is another product that helps with his blood sugar. With brown seaweed and white kidney bean extract to block up to 48% of carbs and sugar without blocking any nutrients. I was kind of skeptical of this since you take so little but to my surprise ~ IT WORKS!
VitalBiome: He also takes VitalBiome which is a probiotic directly focused on balancing the part of the gut that produces relaxation in the brain. It helps to reduce stress and anxiety that comes from a gut imbalance.
XFactor Plus is the only vitamin on the planet that my son isn’t allergic to. It has aloe vera which helps with absorption, prevents stomach upset and reactions. It also have grape seed extract, black currant which is naturally high in iron and antioxidants. This taken together with the VitalBiome is what made is symptoms go from being cut in half to being eliminated altogether. We didn’t introduce these to him until after he was on the TriPlex for 3-4 months.
We started him slowly on the TriPlex first.
~1/3 of it for a month
~ Then 1/2
~ Then 1/2 of the Plexus Slim while giving him the full amount of the BioCleanse and ProBio5
~ Then we started him up to the full TriPlex
~ That was when we introduced him to XFactor and VitalBiome
He’s been doing fantastic and we are thrilled. Gut health played a major role in our son’s health even though he had been taking probiotics and digestive enzymes his whole life.
PS~ As I’m sitting here with my son, both of us doing amazingly better ~ But I’m sick as can be and coughing my head off and he is having a fussy moment because I’m distracted. Life isn’t perfect. Healing isn’t fast. It takes patience, faithfulness, and consistently doing the right thing even when it’s hard. But be encouraged my friend! You got this!
