June 18, 2017, a point in my life where denial was no longer an option. Seven months prior, I was captivated by a Facebook article featuring a well known Doctor personality introducing a revolutionary and scientifically crafted supplement blended in a clinical mix to regulate the blood sugar levels, support cardiac health, make the insulin sensitivity better, lower the blood sugar level, is an all-natural antimicrobial, lowers the blood pressure, while making your health and body, sound.
Surely, I could benefit from such an amazing product. For years, being in denial with diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol, at the same time struggling to take my prescribed medications on a regular basis – 10 pills a day. Here was my ticket (excuse) to get off my medications and start using a dietary supplement that offered a complete health care solution that I had been looking for, without the fear of any side effects. I immediately ordered the product and began taking the recommended dosage for 6-months beginning in January, 2017. All the while ignoring my symptoms of high-blood pressure and elevated blood sugar (dizzy spells and extreme thirst). I was determined to stay off my meds and manage my ailments naturally, my way.
June 18, 2017, my annual physical, a day of reckoning. The anticipation of good news from my doctor was quickly swept away when she told me my A1c level was 12.8 and my blood sugar was 318. I was to begin insulin treatments immediately to regulate and control my blood sugar levels. My blood pressure was 158/109, the highest I can remember it being recorded – I was devastated and quickly began to confess my sins to my doctor. My hopes and dreams of ridding myself from all of my medications backfired.
Now convinced ‘my way’ was not the right way. Both, my wife and I decided the ONLY way to change our lifestyles was to change our bad habits and start making healthy choices in our lives. We already new a little about the ‘Habits of Health’ through our friends we new from church and seeing their amazing triumphs on Facebook. We contacted them immediately and the rest is history.
I am sharing with you my before and after blood work results from June 2017 to September 2017, and the incredible changes that occurred in this very short time using the Healthy Habits for Life 5 in 1 plan. Now, a year later I continue to stay on the plan sustaining my new lifestyle making healthy choices, now paying it forward to family and friends coaching and supporting them along their Healthy Habits Journey.
