I think that I am upfront with everyone. I mean, after all, I shared my delivery story with my friends and readers. One that I poured my heart and soul into. One of the hardest things I have ever written. Something I haven't told you about is what my life was like the months following my delivery. Not the months of raising a baby. The months where I struggled to get out of bed, the months I struggled being me.
When Jayce was 3 months old, I went to my doctor and said, " I am tired all of the time." And I was. Around 1pm or so every afternoon, I would get so tired that I couldn't function. I would turn pale and irritable. Just exhausted.
My doctor told me that it was completely normal to feel that tired, I had a newborn after all. Jayce was my first baby and we were exclusively nursing, so her reasoning seemed logical to me.
When Jayce, was 9 months old, I went back to the doctor, and I said, "I'm tired all of the time. I don't feel like myself." And she told me I was depressed, and prescribed me an anti-depressant. I took it for a week. But deep down I knew that I wasn't depressed. What I was feeling was exhaustion, like I couldn't function. I was not depressed. So, I went on feeling "out of it."
Then Jayce turned 13 months and I went back to the doctor, and I told her that I was still tired. She told me that I had just quit nursing and that it would take time for my hormones to adjust. If you have ever nursed, you know this to be true. So, yes I accepted the answer.
Finally, when Jayce was 15 months old, I went back to the doctor. This time I was in tears as I said, "I am just so tired all of the time. I can't function. Something is wrong with me."
I should also mention that at this point I was also suffering from 2 ocular migraines a week. I would go blind in one eye twice a week.
At this point, my doctor decided to do some bloodwork. The results came in, and they were normal. Anyone who has had bloodwork knows that the range of "normal" is so broad that what could be normal for you one person, may be severely deficient for another. My doctor told me, "Everything is normal, but I can prescribe you something."
This is why I tell my friends and clients to take control of your healthcare. Be your own advocate. Our formulating doctor says, "Doctors are in charge of your disease for a short time, you are in charge of your health for LIFE"
Anyway, I declined my doctors offer for medications. A few months later, I was introduced to It Works! I started on the multivitamin, It's Vital and the superfood supplement the Greens. The combination of these two products make them the foundation of health. They pack a heavy punch of every nutrient your body could potentially need. I have never been much of a vitamin person, or even an all natural person. But when I heard about the energy and detox aspect of the Greens, I was sold.
I noticed the boost in energy immediately. I could function again. Within weeks, my migraines started subsiding. Within a few month, my once super painful periods caused by years of damage from endometriosis, became bearable. I have been on the Greens and It's Vital for 8 month, and in that time, my energy is on point, my periods come and go without ANY pain, and most importantly, I have had 4 migraines since May.
As it turns out, the most important nutrient your body needs is the one you are missing. To pinpoint an exact nutrient would require a lot of expensive testing, something as simple as good supplementation could quite LITERALLY change your life.
