Let me begin by saying I am in no way a salesman (or woman). I am a full-fledged introvert for whom small talk is akin to root canal in anxiety production. The story I am going to tell is true. No names have been changed since no one needs protecting.
In 2012 I was in the best shape of my life. I spent almost two hours a day working out—running, lifting weights, doing Pilates and Pitaiyo. I ran two 5Ks, a 10K, and a half marathon all within eight months of turning 50.
Then I got a job.
You know what happens when you get a job? You have no time for anything else. No gym, no running, no Pilates. And you know what happens when you are rock-hard, 20% body-fat, and can run 13.1 miles and then you suddenly stop? You get fat. And flabby. And tired.
That was my condition in 2013. When my son got married in October of that year, I weighed more than I ever had without being pregnant. And I felt tired all the time. Sluggish, didn't sleep well, brain fog, chronic tendinitis in my elbows, hot flashes worse than I thought were possible . . . I hate the pictures of me at that wedding.
My daughter Deb was talking about this stuff called Plexus Slim and posting on Facebook about how it was helping people get healthy and get off their insulin meds and lose weight. So in early December I secretly bought a 1-month supply.
Plexus Slim is a little packet of powder that you mix in a tall glass of water and drink once a day. It tastes like watermelon-raspberry-lemon Kool-Aid. All the ingredients are natural and it is vegan and gluten-free and non-GMO.
Deb told me to take a picture of myself before I started and to take some basic measurements, which I did.
On day ONE, I had more energy, less appetite, didn't want to fall asleep at my desk in the afternoon, and had no sugar cravings—a big deal for me.
By the end of the first week I noticed that my hot flashes were not as intense as they had been and I thought I was sleeping a little better. Definitely had more energy, less appetite, and no cravings for sweets.
By the end of the second week my clothes were fitting differently. I had not lost more than two pounds according to the scale, but everything was loose and I was just more comfortable in my skin.
At the end of my one-month trial, I took another picture. I had lost five pounds without exercise or dieting, but the change in my appearance was surprising. Where I'd had a belly, it was gone. Where my face had looked puffy, it was no longer. My rings were looser, and so were my shoes. Not a lot, but enough that I noticed it. And I just felt so much better!
I decided to keep taking Slim and also started Ben on it in January.
Sometime during that spring my daughter Leah (a violinist) mentioned that the tendinitis in her hands and wrists was gone (she had suffered for years with this and was completely unable to play at all because of the pain; she had not played her violin in two years). She attributed her healing to taking the Slim (pink drink) and ProBio5, the probiotic. She had done a lot of research, and found that one of the symptoms of a yeast (Candida) overgrowth in the gut is tendinitis.
So I started taking ProBio5 in June of 2014 along with BioCleanse to help my body get rid of the toxins produced by Candida die-off (Google "Herxheimer reaction"). By mid-October, I realized one day that my elbows did not hurt, and I couldn't remember when it had stopped. Bye-bye yeast overgrowth!
Since I began healing my gut, I have not been sick one time. No colds, no flu, no stomach bug that went rampant through the church last winter. Nothing. I've never been healthier, and I know it's because I've gotten my body and my gut in balance. (*updated 1/17/2018: I've been sick once in four years with a cold.)
Plexus Slim balances your blood sugar levels, which allows your entire body to work the way it's supposed to work. Insulin is the mother of all hormones, so if you constantly get bombarded with jolts of insulin because your blood sugar is up and down, it's like your body is on a roller coaster: every system has to work harder and none of them can keep up. It's a cascade of events. The imbalance causes inflammation, which your body responds to by producing more cholesterol, like a salve. Blood sugar imbalance also leads to metabolic syndrome, which leads to diabetes, weight gain, high blood pressure, heart diesease . . . Go ahead and Google these things!
ProBio5 is a probiotic that contains 5 strains of beneficial bacteria, plus enzymes and an antifungal to help break down and kill the Candida overgrowth in your gut, where 70% of your immune system is. Get your gut in balance, and you'll be a much healthier, happier you. Do a Google search for Candida overgrowth symptoms and you'll be amazed at what you read—everything from rashes to depression to tendinitis to autoimmune diseases and digestive issues. Most people have too much Candida and don't know it.
BioCleanse is a magnesium supplement that keeps you "regular" and helps your body flush the toxins produced by Candida die-off.
Four years after I started, I'm still taking this stuff because I love the way I feel and how healthy I am. I became an ambassador to get the wholesale prices, and now people ask me about this stuff all the time. I definitely didn't set out to have a business, but it's grown because the products work!

Buy as a retail or preferred customer or join for $34.95 and get wholesale prices for a year with no requirements to sell and no minimums to buy. It's easy and straightforward. No small print. I promote Plexus products because I love them and I think you will too.
