No, I haven’t been looking into facelifts or a new Fountain of Youth. I’ve been researching my health issues for about a decade now, and I’ve found a new path in the journey that, I have faith, will not be another merry-go-round, but rather an escalator! This new direction is Creator-based, using nutrients He made to heal the body He made!
Up until now, for the joint pain and inflammation (which tested negative for arthritis, Lupus, and RA…but positive for fibromyalgia), the fatigue (which tested positive…again…for Epstein Barr virus) and migraines (for which I’ve been treated by a few chiropractors as well as having a CAT scan and going to physical rehab for the structural instability in my neck), I feel like my health has been on a dimmer switch, gradually brightening.
The MD’s concluded:
- Don’t treat until things get worse, so it won’t be considered a “pre-existing condition”. Oy.
- Try antidepressants, heart meds (sort of on a whim…”practicing medicine”), and blood pressure meds.
- Try Celebrex (after reading the fine print, I decided that was not going to happen).
See, MD’s can help manage symptoms, but for chronic pain and illness, that is really all they have to offer. I wanted something more. I asked the last doctor candidly, “If I take all these pain meds, is it possible I could do further damage to myself…and just not feel it?” There was no good answer to that question. I was not satisfied to not feel the pain, and play the waiting game until things got so bad I found myself in the hospital. MD’s and EMT’s play an important part in acute/emergency situations, or ones legitimately requiring surgery. I wanted to heal.
I’ve been to numerous naturopaths and chiropractors who helped to point me in a nutritional direction. I highly recommend Preventive Health Resources and Hager Chiropractic, (click that link for TONS of videos on medical nutrition on everything from weight loss to arthritis, to thyroid problems, acid reflux, allergies, Lyme disease and more). It was through Dr. Hager that I learned more about Youngevity.
I’d been researching Youngevity for several months (I actually heard Dr. Wallach’s recording “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie” for the first time years ago). I had listened to a number of webinars, read the websites, watched several videos on youtube (information is power to me…I believe in research). Then I noticed that Dr. Hager had begun carrying some Healthy Start Paks in his office. He recommended the Youngevity Ultimate Selenium to me (which has caused me to regain a great deal of energy and has also shown itself effective in a couple other areas). He shared his story with me just last week. He was diagnosed with a herniated disc some time ago, and after numerous treatments to no avail, he was told he had no other alternative but a $36,000 surgery with lots of rehab time. He called Dr. Wallach directly (!), got some nutritional advice, followed it for the next few months…and now he is pain and symptom free. That is persuasive!
According to testimonials, Youngevity can erase fibromyalgia within 3 months. Gone. Why? Because it is using this premise, which I believe sets it apart from everything else: These formulations assume that your body is created intelligently, and with an intellect and ability of its own to heal itself if it is given the proper tools. The problem is, we can’t depend on food to do this. The American diet is deplorable, and our soils are dead. Even if we eat an entirely organic diet. The 90 essential vitamins and minerals are simply not available in the diet without making up our minds that we are going to find a way to get them into our bodies. These products are top of the line. They are completely bio-available, which means your body recognizes them as usable, as compared with synthetically-created supplements, which cause your body to say, “What in the world is THAT?”
In addition to these supplements, I will be following the admonition to steer clear of the “Ten Bad Foods” (click the words to go to a resource which explains what they are, and why they are bad–this is done by Dr. Peter Glidden, who is my upline guy, and one of the best NDs in the country). Lots of water. Coffee is allowed! And chocolate is my friend! ;) Click here to watch “Against the Grain” which explains the importance of going gluten free.
This is the direction we will be taking. I’m such a believer, due to my research, that I am now an Independent Marketing Director. If you would like to follow my healing journey, I plan to send out periodic updates once I am in the swing of the new routine.

ps I’ve been a part of a few MLM’s before. I was skeptical about getting in on another one; but this is a mission. The sign-on is doable for the average gal…ten bucks, not $100 or more. They made it that easy so we can spread the word. Youngevity is the hope on the horizon of health care.
