Imagine waking up every morning and feeling like you hadn’t slept in week after sleeping 10 hours every day. That was me for almost 10 years. I had major brain fog & some days I could barely make it up a flight of stairs. I was constantly sick with the flu, cold or symptoms of such every 2 to 3 weeks. I had chronic thrush accompanied with fever, extreme fatigue along with what I later discovered was degenerative disks in my spine resulting in frequent bouts of sciatica. I also had hypothyroidism, was pre-diabetic and had major digestive problems along with a host of others health issues.
Initially my MD prescribed an array of prescriptions which only made me worse & after seeing an endless list of so called specialists, I hit a wall. I finally gave up on seeing any MD’s as they seemed to give up on me. They’d say things like, “perhaps you’re depressed” or “it’s your genetics” and “you’ll need to stay on these drugs for the rest of your life”. Being an accountable and driven individual, I felt that these comments were all excuses & didn’t resonate with me as the truth. I didn’t buy it.
That’s when I started to visit a local ND. I changed my diet & started on a lengthy supplement regimen thinking “this was it”. It wasn’t. It helped but after several years and thousands invested, I started to lose hope. This emotional rollercoaster of visiting all kinds of wholistic Dr’s and specialists claiming to have my answer were starting to wear me thin. The most frustrating part was that I looked fine. I had to pretend I was well as everyone around me felt that surely my condition was all I my head if the MD’s couldn’t help. One can only imagine my emotional state towards the end but I somehow kept on fighting if only for my young daughter.
I can say with conviction that I spent well over $200,000 on treatments & supplements during this time of sheer frustration. Feeling like I was an experiment and incredibly frustrated, I can’t stress how utterly disheartening it was to spend this kind of money with no recognition, compassion or understanding from my home land of Canada offering free healthcare. Free it was but not what I’d call healthcare by my physical & emotional state. This “care” was limited to drugs, emotionally belittling advice & myopic in perspective which left me nearly broke & sick.
Fast forward a few years & by this time, I had modestly improved but still had to spend hours each day napping & taking a massive round of expensive supplements just to get by. In the summer of 2015 a good friend encouraged me to give Dr. Wallach’s program a try. I brushed her off as by that point I thought I had heard it all. She periodically mentioned him & eventually while walking into a local health store, I saw a poster promoting Dr. Wallach & that he’d be coming to Toronto to give a lecture. I thought, maybe I should at least go and listen to him as I had nothing to lose. I went. Sitting in the front row, I intently focused on his every word hoping this man could help me. That night I went home with knowledge I had not heard from anyone. I knew I had to give it a try. That was November 2015.
Fast forward to April 2017 and I’m still on his regimen. Needless to say, my health has improved by leaps and bounds & I can’t even begin to tell you the difference it has made in my life. I’ll tell you it wasn’t a quick fix & in my case it took almost a year but what kept me going was the continual positive changes that kept occurring. Things like my sleep, appearance of my skin & hair started to improve along with mental clarity I had never experienced before. I’m still seeing improvements after all this time & I’m told that I should continue to see more for as long as I’m consuming all 90 essential nutrients. That’s the platform that Dr. Wallach stands on. His premise is that your body has the ability to heal by itself. If we stop & think for a moment that we all grew from a single cell to whom we are, how did that happen? Why then did we get sick? Could it all be caused by genetics? I beg to differ.
By consuming all 90 nutrients which are deemed essential in one’s diet, the body’s able to function at its peak. Interestingly, my diet consisted of mainly organic whole foods. I thought I was getting all the nutrition I needed but it wasn’t until I started on Youngevity that the tides changed. Not only did Dr. Wallach’s philosophy resonate with me but it was true. If you Google “soil mineral depletion”, you can see so for yourself. The facts are readily available.
As you can see, my story is not straightforward & wanted to convey it through my eyes in hopes you won’t have to experience the same hardship as myself. From the tips of my toes to the crown of my head, I now know with certainty that every single person needs to take the 90 nutrients. Healing is not complicated as I was led to believe. Just like getting an education, one of the most profound things I learned along the way is that health is a journey and not a destination.
If you need a little more reassurance about the efficacy of Youngevity and Dr. Wallach’s philosophy, I would be more than happy to talk to you.
Sincerely, Christine Crockett
Hey Doc, spending time with you is never wasted. Came across Dr. Glidden 12 Bad Foods on U Tube about a year ago, gr8 stuff, stopped eating these. Started on Youngevity at that time, since then. brain fog, no more, had seizures a few years back, have weaned down to 1 pill per day will be off them in a few more weeks, headaches gone, better balance at all times, more energy. Am a 70-year-old male still work most every day, am an avid gardener, cycle a couple of time a week weather permitting. Take care have a gr8 day, Martin.
