I could talk about the obvious physical differences in the two pics—the puffiness vs lack thereof, the breakouts vs clear skin, the caked on greasy makeup vs no makeup at all.... But you can see those differences for yourself.
What you can’t see are the differences on the inside—the improved IBS, the calmed anxiety, the energy, the peace within, the improved confidence and increased courage...
Before Plexus, ‘normal’ meant either running to the bathroom multiple times a day, praying I’d make it in time, or the total opposite: not being able to go for days on end. The times of running, of course worked me into an anxious mess, since I never knew exactly when an attack might hit. The days of not going though meant a painful, distended belly, waistbands that wouldn’t fit, terrible gas, and awful pain when I finally did go. My ‘normal’ meant carrying a change of clothes, wipes, plastic bags, and toilet paper in the car, just in case. The IBS and the constant anxiety over it affected my marriage as well, because I never wanted to go on dates or trips with my husband due to the fear that my body would turn on me.
Day two of PB5, I pooped for the first time in almost a week! From there on out it was different—not always perfect, but much different! The process was gradual but I could tell I was still healing in so many ways. I added in the XFactor vitamin and it helped soothe my gut so much. Week one, digestion was better. Month one, my skin was showing improvement. Month two, my period came normally, and then like clockwork after that. Somewhere in those first two months, anxiety lessened too. As my hormones leveled out more and more, I saw moods stabilize, UTIs lessen, allergies improve, sleep improve, energy increase.
The girl on the left always hoped for a change, always wanted to feel better and BE better, but wasn’t really sure it was possible, and was paralyzed by fear. The girl on the right is living proof that change is possible and that doing scary things is so worth it.
