Susan’s Story: My story is two fold – my husband broke his neck C4 in 1986. Half the doctors thought he was paralyzed the others thought he was dead. He was neither because we serve an awesome God! Years later he began to have migraines which started to become debilitating. Our lives revolved around the migraines. After using traditional medicine, lots of side effects, we met a gentleman who used pharmaceutical grade supplements and had a protocol to follow using grapeseed extract, calcium, low glycemic food plan, exercise and lots of water. After four months we realized he was 99.9% migraine free! We have used this protocol for nearly 10 years now. Praise God!
I went through what is called early onset menopause. It started in my 30s and for about 4 years. It was a life changing event. I went to my OB/GYN who promptly told me that I was too young and wanted to put me on birth control pills. What? Well, I went back to school for health and wellness. At first I received my certification in Christian Life Coaching, then Holistic Health and eventually in essential oils. I used a very natural solution, and yes the road was hard sometimes, but the side effects were zero. I chose natural medicine, eliminated the dairy, gluten, soy, corn, wheat, peanuts and sugar. Easy to do and easy not to do…right! Today I have lost 27 of the 50 pounds that I have gained. This is my main focus in business, women and menopause, all things hormonal. It’s a new season and it’s a time to embrace and enjoy. There is life on the other side, I promise! [Read more...]
