Meet Cindy! She is a 51 disabled RN who will be taking E3Live + BrainON and E3 RenewMe for 30 days. Cindy wants to improve her health, mobility, cognitive abilities and fitness levels.
Here is her journal from week one:
Day 1. Hi Everyone.
I am super thrilled to be part of the E3Live 30 day challenge.
Wow is all I can say. With a knock on the door the box was left on the front porch. My precious box had arrived. It was well insulated and packed with loads of goodies. I received DVDs, a book, magnets, a shot glass, a few bottles of E3Live and Renew Me! It was like Christmas. It left me feeling teary eyed that I was picked.
Defrosting my week’s supply of E3Live was quick and painless. My first dose was a tablespoon. It left me perky, energized, feeling rather alert like I had a cup of coffee. I love starting my day off with E3Live. I am the kind of person who notices changes rapidly. If I eat something good my body reacts positively. My body enjoys the E3Live. Its a good fit. If I consume something that disagrees with my system such as MSG or other things that I am sensitive to, my body crashes big time.
My diet is vegan, mostly raw food. A typical day starts off with a quart of green juice that meets most of the RDA and is packed with protein. Lunch often is often some fruit with chopped nuts, maybe a green salad with lemon on top. Dinner is usually light. Sometimes more juice or a raw food meal, it just depends on how I feel.
Goals. While I would love to loose weight, it is so challenging. My body hangs on to it. I tend to go for walks daily as my exercise or do a workout DVD at home. My workouts are challenging for me as I have multiple sclerosis. It makes it challenging as to the duration of the workouts and intensity. I don’t let the diagnosis hold me back, instead I eat in the optimal way for my body and workout to the best of my ability.
Mostly I want to see how adding E3Live Brain on and the Renew Me will make me feel. I want to see if I feel more alive, alert, if I can do more.
Day 2. I wake up and head to the fridge wanting my dose of E3Live. Down the hatch it goes. I drink it straight as the flavor isn’t bad. It makes my brain feel alert, ready for the day. I don’t drink coffee and I try to avoid caffeine so E3 Alive Brain on is my morning pick-me-up.
Tomorrow I would like to increase the dose, adding in another tablespoon in the afternoon. I would like to see if it keeps me from hitting the afternoon slump.
Day 3. I have added in a afternoon dose of the E3 Live. My energy feels a bit steady. My mind is alert into the evening.
Day 4. I wake up feeling tired. I am not sure what is up other than maybe I am detoxing a bit. I just don’t feel 100%. It’s not bad, just a bit weaker, more fatigue, and a bit of dizziness. Hopefully it will pass soon. My body feels less stiffness. I think perhaps the Renew Me is helping to decrease the muscle spasicity or stiffness that goes along with MS. Sometimes when I stand up from sitting before the E3 challenge, my muscles would stiffen up. I would have to stand still waiting for them to loosen up before I could move. It feels like my muscles are looser. It’s easier to stand up and walk around without the pause as often. My back feels looser. It was injured a few years ago when a MD did emergency surgery on me for a different medical issue. He triggered something or injured something in my back. It’s been acting up ever since. It feels a bit looser easier to move.
Day 5. Still detoxing. Today I am treating my body with patience and compassion. It’s time to soak in the sunshine and do gentle exercise, while I wait for the detox to pass. I don’t mind the detox. It’s good knowing my body is flushing out stuff I need to get rid of. When my mother was pregnant with me I was exposed to horrible toxins. Through my life I unknowingly was exposed to chemicals. It feels like they are being released, thank goodness.
Day 6. I wake up early at dawn, early enough to watch the beautiful sunrise. My body CRAVES BrainON. When I wake up, I automatically go the the kitchen to get my fix. All is well. I feel good. The detox is releasing it’s hold on me.
Day 7. Good Morning, I feel alert again when I wake up. The detox symptoms are minimal. I am going to hold my dose at 1 T. twice a day for a bit before I increase it again. It feels good to be back to my usual and maybe a bit more. Today I started doing Project Hope workout. It’s a beginner 20 min. workout which I broke up into two segments. Yes, I know I am out of shape. I have been working out for several years, but it’s been tough to make any progress when your battling a disease that messes with your physical strength. I do the best I can. In addition to this workout I am doing exercises that my physical therapist has me doing. I am also out doing small bits of gardening off and on during the day as my body tolerates. My legs are a little bit stronger. I can bend over a bit longer pulling weeds.
