This is my testimonial about how Shakeology helped me overcome C. diff; nasty, nasty intestinal bacteria. (You can look it up. It is super gross and nasty. I will spare you all the gory details).
Basically about 6 years ago I was infected with a bacteria and that came after I was on an antibiotic called Augmentin that broke down not only the bad bacteria from an infection I was fighting but it also breaks down the good bacteria in your digestive tract. When that happened it allowed this other nasty C. diff bacteria to overgrow and take over my entire digestive system. . It is terrible. The symptoms are very similar to the inflammatory bowel syndrome many people are familiar with. Lots of problems with digestion. I was sick for about 3-1/2 months; very, very sick actually. I started out prior to the infection at 124 pounds. I lost weight and was down to about probably 110 to 112 pounds which is extremely thin. You can see right now I weigh 130 pounds so picture me 6 pounds lighter than this and that is 124 pounds my weight at that time and take another 12 pounds off of that and you will see how crazy skinny I was. It was not a healthy skinny it was a sick your body is not absorbing any nutrients kind of skinny.
I basically was having anything I ate or drank come right out of the other end an
d to spare you some of the gory details and I was very sick and lost a lot of weight. After that even when my system did semi-recover it took me a really, really long time to get my digestive system back on track. Thankfully I found Shakeology probably about 5 to 6 months later. I became a coach with Team Beach Body and started drinking Shakeology daily in addition to the fitness program I was doing and it completely overhauled my entire digestive system. My stomach no longer is completely bloated. I no longer had problems staying regular whether that be being constipated or having diarrhea issues. It helped keep my system regular going (number two, folks) on a regular consistent daily or twice a day basis and I just felt so much better.
My body was ridding itself of toxicity but in a healthy way and it was also replacing healthy nutrients into my system that I needed. I love that Shakeology has prebiotics and probiotics in it which are very necessary in keeping a healthy digestive system. As you may or may not know, your digestive system is really the major health component in our body where our nutrients are absorbed into the rest of our
body to be used for all different kinds of purposes so when your digestive tract is off kilter your whole body is off kilter. I was extremely exhausted when I had C. diff. I was flat out basically kind of starving to death sort of. I was losing tons of weight. I was really tired. I was malnourished and then after that as I was recovering from that bacterial infection which took a really long time and some serious medications later I pretty much was eating small meals and being okay but if I ate a meal the size of let’s say a dinner meal or an average dinner-sized meal I would get extremely bloated and go from looking like I had a flat stomach to looking like I was 5-months pregnant. My husband and I would laugh about it but I was like secretly like just demolished inside because who wants to feel like that and who wants to go out to eat and be at a social event, eat something, and have a total bloated belly and just feel miserable.
Thank goodness Shakeology came into my life and help me get regular again, helped me get rid of that bloating, helped me have regular bowel movements, and helped my energy. It boosted my energy. It has done all kinds of amazing things. It he
lped me nourish my body and get back to being healthy and energetic and be myself again. So although I guess it kind of worked in reverse for me, it kind of helped me gain weight but healthy weight so I feel I’m in a really good place right now all thanks to you Shakeology. So drink up and get your daily dose of dense nutrition. If you do not currently drink Shakeology I highly encourage you to do that not just because I’m a coach but because everybody should be drinking this stuff. It has some many health benefits from again the prebiotics and probiotics to the fiber, the protein, the macronutrients, and the micronutrients. I can gladly send you some more information about it or if you have questions about what I went through with C. diff or if you are interested in getting Shakeology yourself please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.
