My Fans Are the Best!
For those of you who don't follow me on Twitter, you might have missed me recently turning to my fans and sharing some issues I’ve been having with my stomach lately. With all of the travelling that Slade and I are doing for work, and with the constant filming and running of our businesses, I think the stress has been catching up with me and is affecting my stomach. Specifically I've been feeling run down, my stomach is constantly upset, and even though I've been tired, I haven't been sleeping all that well. No one likes feeling crummy, especially me because I am always on the go and have to be at my best while taking business meetings, hosting events, and doing appearances while meeting the fans.
When I reached out to you guys on twitter your feedback was unbelievable, so thank you so much!
The idea of taking probiotics and enzymes came up a number of times. Even going through a full-cleanse (if I do this Slade is going to be doing it right alongside me J) was recommended by a handful of you. One supplement company kept getting recommended - ReNew Life. I asked you all if you had tried it before and I got a positive response. Because I was talking about it on Twitter their President & Founder Brenda Watson, who happens to be a fan of the show as well, reached out to me and offered to help me. It wasn’t long before our Direct Messages turned into an email and then a phone call to really talk through my symptoms. I mean this is the exact reason I love Twitter! Over the past week we've talked twice and she recommended a special program for me to try out. She also encouraged me to take a test to see if I'm gluten-intolerant - which many of you recommended as well. But first things first. Giving up bread and pasta is scary considering how much I love it!
With the encouragement of my fans and now Brenda Watson (ironically I found out that she’s regarded as the top "gut health" expert in the world), I'm officially on ReNew's H.O.P.E Formula. I've made a commitment to try H.O.P.E. for a couple of months. I'm excited about feeling better and I'm hopeful this helps.
Here are the products that make up the H.O.P.E. formula. Thanks to Brenda, I now have the understanding why this is a good regimen for me and what each of the products do. However their website explains it as well.
- Organic Triple Fiber - helps with digestion and detoxification
- Norwegian Gold Super Critical Omega - fish oil supplements
-Ultimate Flora Critical Care 50 Billion Probiotic - #1 probiotic great for digestion and bowel function
-DigestMORE Ultra - an enzyme that relieves bloating and overall stomach discomfort among other things
If any of you are having similar issues as me, I encourage you to try the program with me and let’s talk on social media and see what we think. I promise to keep you guys abreast with how I'm feeling while on H.O.P.E. and also share my thoughts on ReNew. I'm really thankful to Brenda and her team for reaching out to me and taking the time to care about my health enough to get me on a special program.
Now listen - I know this doesn’t replace what a doctor can recommend. However, before I go spend all this money on doctor’s appointments and blood tests etc. I thought I would try the more natural way with supplements; and if that makes me feel better I can avoid all the hassle of doctors and appointments etc., which I love!
Wish me luck! And thanks again to all my amazing fans for helping me with my journey.
