I don’t know about you, but I just love waking up daily and feeling well-rested with energy to burn. Unfortunately for years, following an out-of-the-blue metabolic crash in my mid 30s, I ended up facing a daily battle to drum up enough energy to make it through even an average workday.
Always a ‘healthy eater’ I found that even the food I ate no longer seemed to help me get the extra surge of energy I knew I needed. Exercise felt draining instead of renewing and rewarding.
For over a decade after facing early menopause (possibly environmentally-triggered), I did all I could to feel better, including researching umpteen alternatives and wellness solutions hoping to restore or boost my good eating habits with something ‘more’. I knew something was missing. But not even a cupboard full of vitamins or health products seemed to work. Eventually, I went ‘off” metabolic syndrome ‘trigger’ foods including caffeine, dairy, wheat, soy, sugar — yet life remained an almost hopeless drudgery with few positive solutions. When a wonderful friend, Deanna Waters, helped me find what I was looking for… I was ecstatic with joy! (aren’t true friends one of life’s greatest gifts ever?)…I am forever thankful!
