I am working on a list of things that I have particularly enjoyed this year – – – some are things that I have enjoyed for several years and still “makes the cut” and some are new things from just this year. So I’m working on the list, but in the meantime, this special is happening right now and only through tomorrow, so I wanted to go ahead and post this, which is also my favoritest (no, that’s not a word, but I don’t care 😉 ).
If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you may know some of the struggles I’ve had with my health, namely my back problems/pain. Plexus makes no claims to cure or prevent any disease, but I can say that my pain has been astonishingly diminished. As a reference, when asked (on a great day) by my chiropractor what my pain level from my degenerative disc disease was, I would usually say maybe a 5-6/10, and when it would flare up super bad a 10/10. Those were the times I would go to his office sometimes 3 times per week for a week or two (that’s not cheap!), then maybe 2 times a week for another week or two, just to get me back to my baseline. I was always doing the benefit/pain cost scale in my head if someone asked me to do something, go somewhere, or anything that involved any unknowns because what if the seating wasn’t comfortable for me? What if my back got bad and I couldn’t do whatever it was? Or even what if I think I can do whatever or go wherever, but I know that then I won’t be able to go or do something else that I want to do or go the next few days? It was a constant line running through my head. So, of course, that leads to feelings of guilt for having to say no to things and feelings of sadness. The worst was when I would have a month or two or even three of being at my baseline (which I had grown to consider “normal”), and then overdo it and be in excruciating pain again – that despair – I know if you suffer from acute and chronic pain you understand. You just want to cry, and often do, and you want to scream “No! This isn’t fair! I’ve had enough of this already!” You probably also try not to gush all these things to others, because you don’t want to be a complainer because nobody likes constantly being around someone who is down, and you don’t want to be down, so you try to smile.
When I found Plexus, I was so down and so hopeless, but I did still have just a slight glimmer of hope, though I highly doubted it would help me, as I had tried SO many things (many of which are great and did help to an extent, but never helped enough). I was really doing it more for the weight loss part of it. Well, I went to the chiropractor due to the pain (another flare up episode) a few weeks after I started the products (I take the TriPlex and Ease caps). That was on April 10th, 2015. Since that time, I have only gone back to him twice… just twice!! (And one of those times was just because I thought I should, not because of pain). Now, if my back does bother me (it occasionally does), it might be a 6/10 on those rare occasions and I just up the products a tad and usually within a day or two, I am back to baseline, which now is probably a 1-2/10 (almost nonexistent!). I really could not be more thrilled, and I thank God for Plexus all the time! It has also helped with a few other health issues I’ve had (allergies gone! headaches gone! skin condition getting better!), and I’m still hopeful and confident it will continue to work and allow my body to heal from a few more things.
Some people wonder how the products seem to work for so many different people with such a variety of problems. I feel, as a society, we are so used to treating symptoms – we take a medication for this condition, and for that condition, and then we take another for the condition brought on by taking the medication for that condition, and we are not looking at the body as a whole – as connected. If you are curious, just Google whatever issue you are having with the words gut health (so ____ (your issue) and gut health), or try it with your issue and inflammation, or (your issue and blood sugar). It is amazing how many things come back to the root issue of gut health, inflammation, and blood sugar balance! These are the 3 things that Plexus products address, so to me it’s no wonder they are helping so many people. It gives me the greatest joy to hear from people who have been helped!
Some people will hear about Plexus and think it’s dumb or that it’s somehow not needed or maybe that they’re taking 124,847 supplements that are higher quality (they think), or the opposite think they get everything they need from eating clean (and there is nothing wrong with that thinking – I was sooo there before, and still advocate eating clean and green; but Plexus is GMO-free, plant-based, and it’s not synthetic, and, as we all know, you can’t eat perfectly every single meal of every single day, and even if you can, sometimes you need extra help). But I think of it as if your neighbor’s house is on fire – you, being a friendly neighbor and having put out your own fire earlier, run up to the house and tell them it’s on fire. They might not believe you or maybe they think, “Oh, brother”. If you can’t convince them, then you don’t just go on home – you go to the neighbor beside them and warn them their house may be on fire soon. There are so many people that need the help that Plexus gives, and the right ones will listen!
I could talk for a long time, but this post is already getting a bit lengthy, but one of the other great things I love about Plexus is their 60-day money-back guarantee. That was a real biggie for me when I first ordered – I was kind of actually expecting to have to use it (though hoping not to).
So on this #GivingTuesday, Plexus is giving us a coupon code for 10% off ANY order of ANY size – can be as a customer (Retail/Preferred) or as an Ambassador – even on the Welcome Packs, which are already below wholesale cost.
This deal ends Wednesday at 3 p.m. EST!
Here is a “Cliff Notes” version/description of Plexus products:
SLIM –“The Pink Drink” is a little powder packet that you mix into one bottle of water once per day. It contains a unique blend of plant based ingredients that help maintain healthy blood sugar, cholesterol and lipid levels, reduce cravings and I’ve noticed it increases my energy without stimulants. Slim also burns fat, not muscle!
PROBIO5- this is our probiotic with 5 varied strands of good bacteria. It helps restore proper intestinal balance and helps level out the yeast/bacteria balance in your system. ProBio5 also has THREE added digestive enzymes and a fungal killer specifically targeted to help your body break down food and fight the bad yeast and fungal overgrowth.
BIOCLEANSE- our magnesium based gentle daily colon and GI cleanser; oxygenates and energizes your body while detoxifying and cleansing wastes, pathogens and plaque in the body. It is very gentle and helps keep your body rid of toxins on a daily basis.
X-FACTOR- This is our daily multi-vitamin. It is unique in that it contains a patented aloe blend that helps increase absorption of nutrients by up to 400%. It also contains Methylfolate so those with the MTHFR gene mutation can take it.
EDGE- provides a clean, natural extra boost of energy without all the harsh side-effects of typical energy drinks/patches/shots etc. Most energy drinks contain synthetic caffeine that causes quick spikes, followed by sudden crashes and can also cause jitters, nausea, anxiousness and more. Edge contains natural caffeine from Green Coffee Beans along with L-Theanine & Theacrine that block the negative effects of caffeine so you can feel alert, focused & energized, yet you remain calm and happy all day!
ACCELERATOR+ or BOOST- when used with Slim, speeds up fat loss, boosts metabolism, helps control appetite and increases energy. Accelerator is the milder version of the two. Boost is stronger and is a thermogenic. Skip if you have BP issues.
BLOCK-fast acting formula that also helps boost appetite control, helps control glucose levels & increases fat loss by absorbing up to 48% of the excess carbs and sugars we intake on a daily basis.
MEGAX- is the ONLY completely plant-based total omega product on the market. Containing Omega 3,6,9 + 5&7, this product is incredible for brain health, heart health, skin related issues and so much more.
We also have amazing GRASS-FED WHEY PROTEIN shakes, EASE pain relief cream and capsules, a NERVE pain relief product, a BREAST EXAMINATION KIT, an amazing BODY CREAM and children’s CHEWABLE MULTI!
If you have any questions, I would love to offer my help. Helping others brings me joy, and I am so thankful for how my health has improved, and if even one of you is helped as well, that will just make my day! 🙂
Have a great day!
