Hi! My name is Melody.
I suffer from fibromyalgia/ arthritis. I have learned that eating well, and exercising is the best way to prevent symptoms from this disease.
Then, I developed a host of new symptoms. I had horrible sensitivity to cold, depression, dry itchy skin, my hair started falling out, and I wanted to sleep all day. I had no energy. I barely could make it through the day. I was put on anti-depressants. I went back and forth to the doctor believing the entire time my fibro had worsened.
This went on for the last 3 years.
Then back this past Spring I was in chiropractors office and was reading an article about Hypothyroidism. My niece had recently been diagnosed and was interested to know more. When I got to the list of symptoms it was like the Heavens opened and the angels sang. I had 14 of the 16 symptoms! I went to the doctor and was officially diagnosed. With the help of my thyroid medication I began to feel a little bit better.
Then I stumbled upon Plexus. Plexus is an all natural line of supplements created to make you feel better. It''s not a diet but a system to make y you healthier. I started on something called the triplex combo. It''s the Slim drink, the biocleanse, and the Probio5 (a probiotic). This product changed my life. I have energy, I sleep better, and I feel amazing! Now I am going to start working out again, and get back to being me!
I am a mother to four great kids. The wife to my soulmate. I have a lot of weight to lose and I am determined to get healthy and back into shape!
