Laura is a friend of mine who I met through my fiction writing. She’s a big fan and we’ve become forever friends. A few things Laura doesn’t mention in her post is her incredible strength and the love she holds in her heart is more than ten people combined. I’ll let Laura tell her story now 🙂
My journey and story with green juice and smoothies started around October of last year and has completely changed my life in SO many ways. I am SO proud and happy to say that as of July 8, 2018 I have lost a total of 105 pounds and I owe it ALL to Healthy Grandma for introducing me to her green juice and smoothies that got me started on my amazing journey and a new and healthy way of living. Not only was I extremely overweight, unhealthy and depressed because I allowed myself to become so overweight but I’ve also been living with Multiple Sclerosis for almost 19 years now. I desperately needed to change my eating habits. Not only for myself, my health, a better self-esteem but more than anything, I needed to do something to help with my MS. Multiple Sclerosis causes many different problems and health issues for people. A lot of people think that it’s strictly a disease that could sadly leave you unable to walk and end up in a wheelchair and there’s so much more to this horrible disease.
For myself and many others that live with MS, you can have a iron deficiency, extreme fatigue, as well as a possible low blood count. My iron and blood levels were extremely low and so bad that I had to get a blood transfusion and then see a hematologist to get iron infusions every three to four months. Since I started drinking the green juice and smoothies my iron level is at the highest level it’s ever been, which in itself is a TRUE blessing! Drinking the kale, spinach and blueberries especially because of the high content of iron, I no longer have to get iron infusions and that’s one less doctor I have to see AND pay the ridiculous amount of money for what these insurance companies don’t cover, as well as the copays and deductibles. I also have more energy than I ever did before and that allows me to do things that I never could because I was just too tired.
I honestly can’t say enough about how much green juice and the smoothies have changed my life for the better!! I’m a brand new and healthier person that for the first time in my life, I actually enjoyed buying new and much smaller clothes. =) I would, I have and will continue to tell everyone I know the amazing, healthy and wonderful benefits you will get from drinking green juice and smoothies. Please give it a try and I promise you that you will not be disappointed! My wonderful friend said it best, “Green juice does a body good” and I couldn’t possibly agree with her more!!
