A very personal story, bravely shared. Thank you for giving permission.
“I really believe that physical health can be fixed so much easier then mental health so the more we discuss it the more we can help!
“when I was 14 I was diagnosed with an eating disorder, bulimia with an anorexic mentality. So I would not eat anything at all for as long as I could and when it got to the point that I had to eat as my blood sugar was so low and I was craving so bad, I would eat everything I could possibly fit in my stomach. Then the guilt would set in and it wouldn’t stay in my stomach, hence the bulimia aspect. I am now 25 so it’s been 11 years of starving, binging, weight fluctuation and guilt!
“It got to the point that my periods stopped, I was cold all the time and couldn’t concentrate at all. Due to the illness lowering confidence and causing depression it really impacted on my wider life and I have found it hard to socialise, manage emotions and even leave the house. I also had discussions with the mental health team about care in the community versus in hospital care aka sectioning, so my life needed a big change if I was to be the person I wanted and live the life I wanted!
“The only time I have eaten ‘normally’ and been happy about it has been since I started juice plus. Juice plus is amazing because unlike the other crash diets, juice plus can be taken forever! On a bad day, 2 plain shakes and a small evening meal isn’t good for your body, it’s amazing for your body! So the smallest addition to a diet can work amazing wonders on your physical health. This small change to my diet increased my energy, reshaped my body to an image I was comfortable with and gave me confidence I had never experienced before! The benefits I have experienced are amazing and I would more then recommend the product to anyone and everyone!
“There’s more! The social nature to the business also does wonders for me. I find it hard to socialise, but the team are so supportive and friendly… We all love being healthy and are passionate about supporting others, hence we support each other! I can sit and drink coffee and socialise and feel comfortable and confident in the atmosphere which I would never have imagined, I feel part of the team, welcomed, respected and supported as we all are!
“I would like to thank juice plus for literally saving my life and supporting me to appreciate myself and my family and thank the team for all their support!
“Juice plus, don’t knock it until you have tried it! It’s amazing how such a small change can affect so many areas of your life! Thanks”
