Four and a 1/2 years ago I was looking for a way to add more nutrition into my family’s diet. I thought about juicing but it was an involved process and expensive. I tried other green juice powders that dissolved conveniently in water, but tasted like grass! I’ve always been health conscious; my husband and I enjoy cooking clean recipes from scratch, we minimize eating processed foods and avoid traditional fast food. I nursed both my babies a total of 16 months to give them a good foundation, so we we’re healthy enough….so I thought.
My son began to get chronic monthly ear infections when he started school at 18 months old. This continued for 6 months, requiring antibiotics to kill the infection, which also killed healthy gut bacteria weakening his immune support. It was a vicious cycle and I had enough. I didn’t want him going thru that anymore so we looked into options and reluctantly decided to get him ear tubes to help prevent fluid backing up in his ears when he got sick. Those did help to prevent a cold turning into an ear infection, but I wanted to also focus on strengthening his immune system to prevent the cold in the first place. That was around the time Juice Plus came into our lives, and without expectations we started taking it daily. I figured it’s whole foods and good for us anyway, so it couldn't hurt to try.
Over 4 years later, he has not had a single ear infection since (only needed antibiotics once when he caught strep) his ear tubes fell out after a year, and never needed additional surgery (whereas some kids need them reinserted and still get infections with tubes). All of us RARELY catch colds and when we do, we fight them in days instead of weeks. No prescriptions needed, just some TLC and faithful home remedies to let our immune system do it’s job to fight it.
Since flooding our body with all these fruits and veggies, my husband and I have consistent energy and clearer minds to keep up with our busy lives. I haven’t loss my voice in years, when previously in my 20s and early 30s, I would get laryngitis annually My hair grows above average, my vision has improved year over year (I no longer wear contacts daily!) My son is so regular now, where in the past foods such as dairy or chocolate constipated him (TMI?) Since eating his Juice Plus gummies, he goes at least once daily….multiple times on weekends! We are so grateful and will eat Juice Plus for the rest of our lives because we know it’s doing amazing things in our body. One simple change...leads to many.
