A supplement that works for me

Before I start this blog, I would just like to point out I am in no way affiliated with this company or product, in other words, I am not trying to sell this product. But as this is a true story that happened to me personally, I thought it would make for an interesting read. I give you… A supplement that works for me.

A great workout to start the day

Thursday. A few years ago, I was feeling fine and had my usual early morning workout which at the time was my best of the year! I left the gym feeling on top of the world. Little did I know what was to come later the next few days though.

Friday. As the day went on, I started feeling not too well, at first, I thought it was flu with hot and sweaty symptoms. I left work early and went to bed only to awake pouring with sweat! And I mean pouring, the bed sheets were drenched!

My wife’s birthday weekend

After this marathon sweating session, I actually felt somewhat better. It was my wife`s birthday weekend and we had a special weekend planned out of town, after convincing her I was ok to go, we set off and I felt reasonably ok.

Saturday and Sunday. Each day got progressively worse, and I knew something was seriously wrong.

Monday. Straight to my doctor, after running the usual tests at the doctor`s they confirmed it wasn’t flu, actually, they could only tell me what it wasn’t, but couldn’t tell me what it was. She looked horrified and sent me to the emergency room at the local hospital.

As I said at first, I thought it was the flu, but after a few tests at the doctor`s they confirmed it wasn’t, actually, they could only tell me what it wasn’t, but couldn’t tell me what it was. After a few days it got so bad I had to go to the emergency room at the local hospital.

A mysterious virus

To cut a long story short I almost died from this! After a few weeks I recovered slowly, but it left me feeling weak, tired and quite often my blood sugar would suddenly drop without warning. Anyone who has experienced this will I’m sure agree it is a very scary feeling indeed.

A few months after this we went to a fitness convention in our hometown of Austin Texas, after around an hour again I felt this feeling suddenly coming on, it was a very interesting convention but the feeling was so bad I couldn’t enjoy any of it and was ready to call it a day and go home.

My lucky day

But this was to be my lucky day for sure, on the way out of the convention we happened to stop at the last vendor who was selling some kind of supplement, they offered a free drink so I tried one and after a few minutes I felt like my old self again! My first thought was that my mind had convinced me this had worked, after all, the mind is a very strong thing and I had heard of this happening to many people before so didn’t think too much more about it. It actually tasted great, so we bought a canister of this product, a supplement that works for me.

Now, let me tell you that was a life changing moment for me as I have never looked back since! It has totally given me back my life, there’s been no more episodes of feeling weak and tired, and my blood sugar has never dropped since.

I lost 20lb in two months and dropped 2 pant sizes and feel better than ever before. I am in my mid-fifties and I can honestly say I feel better now than when I was in my mid-twenties! Still to this day I take this supplement. A supplement that works for me.

To this day I have no idea what kind of virus I caught, and neither do the doctors, all I know is I never want it ever again! It could have been a virus I picked up at the gym I was using or the place I was working at as they had many foreign visitors around that time. I honestly don’t know, I’m just very relieved to have survived this incident ad live to tell the story.

I`ll end this blog as I started it, I am in no way affiliated with this company or product and not trying to sell this product. But this for me was a supplement that works for me.
