This first USANA Health Sciences product review required me to step back and really evaluate how I’ve been feeling lately. I got a great bird’s eye view and what a surprise!
I’ve been rocking my world over the past 6 weeks and to give credit where credit is due, I’m convinced USANA has been a major contribution to this enhanced, effective state. This post will explain what lead me to try USANA and the positive results showing up in my life.
We’ve been questioning the quality of our current food supply and wondering just how damaging our hectic lifestyles are in these Live Lighter posts:
- Are Nutritional Supplements Necessary?
- Processed O.J. v.s. Fresh-Squeezed
- I Vote For Nutritious Food!
Although I lead a healthy lifestyle (as much as I can at any given time) and am generally very healthy, since September of last year, life’s been harder than it was when I started Live Lighter. I’m imbalanced again. *sigh*
If you’ve been following Live Lighter, you’ll know that my imbalance has been showing up as health issues, including digestive trouble and addiction. Both of which negatively affect nutrition (further complicating the imbalance) and therefore hormones and mood.
A general list of health complaints
Although I still enjoyed good days, by the time June rolled around the not-so-good days were becoming more frequent. To give you an idea of how I was feeling at the time, here is a general list of my symptoms varying in severity and time:
Lack of energy, motivation and enthusiasm; loss of optimism (negative thoughts reigned); cravings for sweets, carbs and junk food; increased appetite and addictive eating; mild anxiety and depression; difficulty waking in the morning; mild congestion; weight gain (10 lbs since February); moodiness; PMS; acne; digestive issues (including constipation); joint stiffness/soreness; water retention in hands, face & feet; cold hands & feet; poor memory and concentration; low self-esteem and difficulty making decisions; and irregular menses.
USANA: a gift from an angel
A friend of mine, Tiffany Strobel, called to see how I was doing in early June – it was one of those days. She said she’s been trying some health products that I might be interested in investigating.
She invited me to a Healthy For Life seminar where I learned about USANA’s basic 3-prong approach to health:
Eureka! The only missing piece in my healthy living pursuits so far has been supplementation! Considering what I had just learned about the quality of our food supply and my health issues that actually suck the nutrients from my body, I decided to give it a try.
Within 2 weeks I could feel a noticeable difference in my mood. My optimism and motivation returned on a more frequent basis and it was easier to get up in the morning. It’s been 6 weeks since I started using USANA products and all my symptoms have reduced in severity and length.
I feel so much lighter! I’ve lost 5 pounds, have twice the energy, my mood has stabilized, food addictions have been severed, my face has cleared up, and the best part of it all, no more PMS!
But how did I do it?
That’s for tomorrow’s post where I reveal what USANA products and advice I’ve been taking, what I like and dislike about the products, how I reacted on them and who may benefit the most from USANA.
