My Healthy Gut

I am not a scientist. But I do love to find answers and fix problems. I guess I am like many Moms.

You see, I lived with chronic lower back pain for 11 years. My doctor told me that I was just getting older and that I should deal with it. I was 30 years old. I wasn’t OK with that “diagnosis” but I didn’t know any better and I trusted my doctor. But after years, I needed to take the research into my own hands.

My pain started right after giving birth to my first child who weighed 9 lbs and this is why she said it was aggravated. So, I just went along with my life, living with back pain and resolved to the fact that I would have it for the rest of my life.

  • Baby #2 came – 8 lbs 10 oz
  • More back pain…
  • Baby #3 came – 10lbs 4 oz!!!!!
  • More back pain, for sure.

I went to physical therapy, I knew all the yoga poses, I have read countless books, had many x-rays and we even bought a fancy and expensive Tempurpedic bed. But, in the morning I would still wake up and not be able to even tie my shoes because I couldn’t bend over at the waist. I also couldn’t stand up straight.

Sigh.

In walks Plexus. I’ll try anything. I originally started taking Plexus Gut Health Supplements because I was a tired overwhelmed mama of 3 and my sister in law said she was feeling more energy with them. That was my main focus and I never thought it would work (true skeptic!). But, since then I have learned and gained so much more in my life that it makes me a little teary eyed to actually write it down…

  • I have never slept like I do now.
  • I have never had the energy that I do now.
  • I have lost weight even though that is not my focus.
  • I am so much happier.

  • I am more fun now, just ask my kids.
  • I am more present with my family.
  • I am more organized.
  • I have way more confidence.
  • I have so many supportive friends.
  • I have found a new calling in researching and sharing clean ingredient, homemade products through my blog at www.heathersreallife.com
  • I also have NO MORE BACK PAIN.

INFLAMMATION? Buh-Bye! I no longer have back pain because my inflammation is GONE. I haven’t taken ONE ibuprofen, acetaminophen or naproxen since starting on Plexus products (almost 4 years!!!). I was a walking example of an unbalanced body.  I was unhappy, tired, moody, couldn’t lose weight, overindulged, had little self control and was in pain so I couldn’t do the things I knew I needed to do to help me feel better overall. My gut health was extremely poor from years of antibiotics from common infections (I didn’t even know what gut health was) and my poor body was physically fighting itself.  There was a war waging in my body and I felt the pain from it.

What I would’ve given to have known about inflammation when my babies were still babies.  My life would have been so different right now.  That is why I am a Plexus Lifer and a Plexus Sharer because it has changed my life and my future in ways I NEVER THOUGHT I NEEDED and I hope that I can help change someone else’s life and maybe stop them from suffering for no reason.

I never thought I would have this second chance…..pay it forward.

Today, I am living a cleaner life because of Plexus. This blog is a direct response to what I have learned about clean ingredients and the importance of gut health. I eat well and supplement with natural supplements from Plexus.

I am not here to only sell you a product – I am here to share my experience in the hopes that it will help someone else that may be suffering for years in silence like I did. If you ever want to chat about Plexus, please contact me – I am happy to answer any questions you might have.
