It’s so easy for a mom to get caught up in her crazy schedule and not take care of herself because she’s taking care of everyone else. She might drag herself out of bed only with the motivation of that necessary Starbucks coffee after school drop off, rush past breakfast to the commitments of the day, and pick up an energy drink and candy bar to try and help with the nagging fatigue and hunger pangs when running afternoon errands before heading to carpool. On the way to evening practices, she orders the extra large soda, burger, and fries in the drive thru for everyone in the van, later collapses on the couch after helping with homework and getting kids to bed, finishing off that third of a pack of Oreos because she’s worked so hard and “deserves it”, then taking her ibuprofens and antidepressants before bed and her Ambien for the insomnia she suffers from in spite of her sleep deprivation.
This woman is actually the norm of our day. She is running through life at a frantic pace with no fuel. She is suffering from blood sugar instability, sugar cravings, inflammation, brain fog, depression, dehydration, sleep deprivation, a sedentary lifestyle leading to chronic fatigue, and poor gut health.
Unfortunately, American companies have been looking out more for themselves than for the well-being of consumers. We have been fed not only a lot of processed foods, but also a lot of lies. (A well-balanced meal does not equal a burger, fries, soda and a shake, in spite of what we’ve been led to believe.) Those habits, along with the prevalent use of prescription drugs and antibiotics have begun to catch up with us with numerous health issues on a dramatic rise:
- 8 out of 10 Americans are overweight.
- Obesity is associated with dramatic increases in diabetes, heart disease, cancer, stroke, arthritis, and depression.
- The prevalence of Type 2 diabetes has tripled since the 1980’s.
- The number of diabetics is projected to go from 1 in 10 Americans today to 1 in 3 Americans by mid-century.
This has led me to a health and wellness focus. I’m thankful to be able to share with others natural products that solve a myriad of health problems by addressing the root causes of poor gut health, inflammation, and blood sugar instability. I believe these products are an integral part of a comprehensive wellness program that includes clean eating, water drinking, regular exercise, and proper sleep. And if you are looking to get the products and also earn an extra $200-$300 a month, there is a opportunity for that, too.
