What If You Could Say Goodbye to Period Pain Forever?

 

 

When my BFF had her first pain-free period, I wished I could ask this question of every woman I knew: what if you could say goodbye to period pain forever?

All she did was make a single lifestyle change — she chose a dietary supplement I had just started promoting. It doesn’t cure anything. It elevates your body to peak state of health, and then your body does what it was designed to do: cleanse, heal, and rebalance itself.

She was simply supporting my new side hustle, but after 20 years of excruciating period pain (we’ve been friends since we were 12 years old) she had her first pain-free period ever.

You see, I was excited to start my new hustle. You would be too if you met the people I met and heard their stories.

Like the story of Monica’s son who had to be hospitalized every month, sometimes twice a month, because of his sickle cell crises. His genotype is still the same but with this supplement, he hasn’t had a single crisis in over two years.

Like the story of Chris whose blood sugar was so high that ants were gathering around his urine in the toilet bowl. Two weeks after cutting down on carbs and taking this supplement daily, his blood sugar was down to normal and has stayed within healthy limits.

Like the story of Funmi who used to have only 2 periods in a year because of PCOS, and had been trying unsuccessfully for years to have a 2nd child after her daughter. Not only did her periods become regular with continued use of this supplement, she conceived and now has a baby boy!

Yes, I was excited about my new mission. If you know me you know I love this kind of thing, making a difference in people’s lives.

So I made a decision to offer this supplement to everyone who was open to trying it. And after just few weeks on it, my BFF’s period came with zero cramps! Whoa!

What I love the most about this particular brand is that you don’t have to take the supplement in capsule form if you don’t want to.

What my BFF got (and what has now become my Number 1 choice) is the supplement already infused into that antioxidant-rich beverage that’s even healthier than water; green tea.

Wait, green tea is healthier than water? That doesn’t make sense! There’s nothing better than water!

Actually, there is: you get all the benefits of water AND all the benefits of the antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that exist in green tea!

Now imagine drinking this every day, PLUS the transformational benefits of this amazing supplement — the closest thing to nutritional perfection you can put in your mouth — infused into it. You can’t taste it, you can’t smell it, but it’s there and it’s working. Pure gold.

How Do You Ask a New Friend Out?

A few days ago, I was in a supermarket shopping when I saw a young lady walk in. I liked her immediately.

There was something about the way she carried herself that was at once elegant and girl-next-door, and when she looked my way I saw the spark of intelligence in her eyes.

I wanted to be friends. Not just for those reasons but for the inexplicable reason that people just speak to something inside us. I used to wonder how, as toddlers in kindergarten and children in primary school, we gravitated towards some kids and not others. We couldn’t explain it then, and we can’t even now. We just like certain people.

I walked up to this lady and said hello.

What Life Has Taught Me About Friendship

When you consider that you can survive for a while without a lover or spouse, but it’s practically impossible to survive without a friend, it becomes easier to see how friendship is a bigger deal than romance. It’s not pleasant to be without romantic love in your life, but how much worse is it to be without a friend in the world?

I agree with CS Lewis: “After all—though our novels now ignore it—friendship is the greatest of worldly goods. Certainly to me it is the chief happiness of life. If I had to give a piece of advice to a young man about a place to live, I think I should say, ‘sacrifice almost everything to live where you can be near your friends.’” Read more…

10 Money Lessons for Friends and Lovers

“Money separates friends” is a phrase I heard quite often growing up, and along with the quote, “Neither a borrower nor a lender be” it formed my money philosophy as a teen. I witnessed enough “friendships” go sour because someone borrowed and didn’t pay back, to know that there was truth to the saying. So unless I was gifting cash, I avoided the topic as much as possible when it came to friends and lovers.

As I grew older however, it became more and more difficult to keep the subject of money out of relationships. Read more…

Are You Your Child’s Best Friend?

We want our children to not just love us but like us too, and we want them to be able to confide in us, telling us any and everything. There’s nothing wrong with any of this, of course, but the hidden trap is that many parents in seeking this attempt to be their child’s best friend.
