My own health continues to be such a blessing. I’m amazed again at how good I feel! I dealt with CANCER, adrenal fatigue, low blood sugar, brain fog, and being overweight, breathing issues due to chemo, anxiety, recurring irritability, and desperately needed something that would work from the inside out, not just mask symptoms.
There are some people who wonder what all the excitement is about, and if you have never experienced health challenges or felt desperate for answers to what is happening in your body, then thank Jesus!! Not everyone is in need of these products and there are those who enjoy great health – and that is wonderful! But there are many who are looking for something to help frustrating and crippling health concerns, and it’s for those people that I am excited to share!
I am not a doctor or nurse, but in my own journey of health I have been learning so many things about how the body works, and it is so fascinating and exciting! These products are not a magic cure for anything, and they will not turn your twinkies into protein, unfortunately! But they do work to bring health to core and essential levels of the body. So I want to tell you about four of my favorite products, and why they work as they do.
Have you ever wondered why Plexus products may help so many different health concerns? I know I did!
Eva Schmidt gives a great explanation:
It’s because inflammation, blood sugar instability and gut health are the ROOT cause of so many health issues. Instead of addressing the root problem, most of the time we end up treating symptoms with prescriptions, which have their OWN side effects, thus creating MORE issues to deal with.
Here’s a better explanation from Jennifer George Pickett, a Dietitian who believes in Plexus. She has a Master’s degree and almost 17 years of health care experience and below she shares her opinion on what makes Plexus different… I wholeheartedly agree!
She writes… “In my opinion, what makes Plexus different is that these products address the root of the problem. After working with many clients and team members, I have seen the most common root problems are blood sugar instability, poor gut health and inflammation. Until root problems are addressed, it is hard to see health results.
* Plexus Slim addresses blood sugar instability and inflammation
* Fast Relief also addresses inflammation
* ProBio5 and BioCleanse addresses poor gut health
”Plexus Slim is a yummy little pink drink that you take first thing in the morning 30 minutes before you eat.
It helps stabilize your blood sugars throughout the day which in turn helps you have more energy, Stable blood sugars also mean LESS STRESS on the body!! Less stress means less inflammation, less raised cortisol or adrenal fatigue. Less stress means healthier blood pressure, cholesterol, and lipids. People report having great energy, sleeping better, less cravings for sugar/snacks, and weight loss.
Plexus Slim also helps insulin to function better. Insulin is the master hormone
in your body, which means it has a very important job! Insulin tells all the other hormones what to do! Hormones tell your body whether to burn fat and lose weight or to store fat and gain weight or to find balance and weight maintenance in between. When it comes to your body “deciding” what state to be in, there are two key hormones that regulate food intake and energy balance.Did you know if your blood sugar is off-balance it can affect your mood and hormones?So why is a healthy blood sugar level important, and what can it do?
Here are just a few benefits of just a balance blood sugar level alone:
-helps diabetics with healthier blood sugar balance
-helps to prevent light-headedness, shakiness that is a result of low blood sugar
-helps to balance hormones
-blood sugar balance reduces inflammation
Interesting fact: Did you know that the only common denominator in people who live to be over a 100 years old that scientist can find is how sensitive they are to insulin?! So if we can keep our blood sugars stable, not swinging up and down, our bodies can release less insulin and become more sensitive to insulin.The body naturally stores fat. The most common areas are the stomach, thighs and buttocks. These excess fat stores contain toxins that can cause havoc with our immune system. Plexus Slim and other products work to reduce fat, thereby gaining better health. This picture shows the difference between dieting and cleansing, and why cleansing makes all the difference
ProBio5 What IS a probiotic, and why is it important?A probiotic is an organism which contributes to the health and balance of the intestinal tract.A probiotic is also referred to as the “friendly”, “beneficial”, or “good” bacteria which when ingested acts to maintain a healthy intestinal tract and help fight illness and disease. The Plexus Probio5 is the only probiotic on the market that also contains an antifungal ingredient, which is so essential in the treating of yeast overgrowth in the body!ProBio5 features five probiotics, added enzymes, Vitamin B6, Grape Seed extract and Vitamin C—all in one effective delivery system.Features & Benefits⦁ Yeast organism and fungal cleanse⦁ Proper probiotic balance in the intestinal tract⦁ Proper intestinal balance which increases nutrient absorption⦁ Relief from typical yeast symptoms (anxiety, recurring irritability, lethargy, allergies, acne, dry/flaky skin, migraines, and so forth)Doctors say that 80% of our health lies in our gastrointestinal tract, which is our gut/colon/digestive tract. It is a huge area of our body, and studies show that even things like depression, autoimmune diseases, skin issues, and a myriad of other health issues have their root in an unhealthy gut.Poor eating habits, chlorinated drinking water, stress and disease and the use of antibiotics in food production as well as in medical treatments can wreak havoc in the gastrointestinal tract by destroying good bacteria and allowing undesirable bacteria to multiply.When the ratio of good bacteria to bad is lowered, problems begin to arise such as excessive gas, bloating, constipation, intestinal toxicity and poor absorption of nutrients.So…..have you ever considered that your gut is sick?And that your gut being sick is making YOU sick? Making your joints hurt? Having headaches? Being grumpy, to lacking concentration? Causing bad allergies, and being tired all the time? I don’t know a lot about lots of things. BUT, I do know how to help you gut! And your gut is the hub—the grand central station–of how you feel every day!Leaky Gut Syndrome (LGS) is a major cause of disease and dysfunction in modern society, accounts for at least 50% of chronic complaints, as confirmed by laboratory tests. It is often the primary cause of the following common (auto-immune) conditions :
and inflammatory joint disorders including rheumatoid arthritis are just a few of the diseases that can originate with leaky gut. It can contribute to PMS, uterine fibroid, breast fibroid.In Leaky Gut Syndrome, the small intestine becomes inflamed and irritated, which allows metabolic and microbial toxins of the small intestines to flood into the blood stream. This event compromises the liver, the lymphatic system, and the immune response including the endocrine system.Some of the most incurable diseases are caused by this exact mechanism, where the body attacks its own tissues.This is commonly called auto-immune disease.So how do you get a HEALTHY gut?By providing it with healthy bacteria that nourishes, with enzymes, with life-giving nutrients that not only feed the healthy bacteria but kill the unhealthy bacteria, which is the yeast or candida overgrowth that is the “mystery illness” of America. Literally, hundreds of surface issues spring from this one iceburg issue
BioCleanse: As a result of the modern lifestyle, most of our bodies are burdened with toxic waste and sluggish metabolisms. Having an excess of toxic waste can leave the body tired, achy, and bloated, with a low energy level and weakened immune system. Detoxification is a process that expels excess waste and accumulated toxins from our body. Fortunately, Plexus has developed products to help the body detoxify and cleanse the gastro-intestinal tract and arteries.Many people are in a low oxygen/toxic state. This is caused by poor diet, stress, low activity levels, polluted air and shallow breathing. The body cannot keep up its metabolism in this state, and begins to gather waste products more rapidly than it can eliminate them. Viruses, bacteria, fungi and other things thrive in this condition, and can lead to diseases such as flu, yeast overgrowth, chronic fatigue, etc. Plexus Bio-Cleanse oxygenates and energizes your body while detoxifying and cleansing wastes, pathogens and plaque in the gastrointestinal tract, colon, arteries, blood, etc.So while cleansing the body of waste is very important and what most people think of with a cleanse, there are so many MORE health benefits than that alone.Interesting fact:“In 1931 Dr. Warlburg won his first Nobel Prize for proving that cancer is caused by a lack of oxygen respiration in cells. He stated in an article entitled “The Cause and Prevention of Cancer” that ‘the cause of cancer is no longer a mystery, we know it is caused when any cell is denied 60% of its oxygen requirements.’This is what Plexus says about the BioCleanse: BioCleanse oxygenates and energizes the body while helping cleanse wastes, pathogens and plaque in the gastrointestinal tract, colon, arteries, blood, etc. Call me if you have any questions.
