Sicky Henry & Plexus Update
I have so much stuff to do today, and here I am sitting on my butt.
Henry wouldn’t go to sleep until after 1 in the morning last night. He’s been battling a stuffy nose, which has turned into a cough. He’s never had a cough before. It’s made him off schedule because he keeps napping during the day.
Yesterday he made me lay with him for 2 hours in bed. Every time I tried to sneak away he would say sleepily, “Me neeeed you Mommy!”
Who can resist that?? Ah!
But because of that nap he couldn’t sleep last night. Sigh.
He kept Ada up too, because he wouldn’t shush or be still. That led to the both of them sleeping until 10:15 this morning!
Henry seems to feel better today, so fingers cross he’s finally on the mend. It’s been about two weeks.
We’re having some friends over this afternoon. And tomorrow we have classes #3 and #4 for foster care licensing. I reallllly need to super clean my house before the babysitter is here all day.
Cleaning out the three guinea pig cages, litter boxes, and baby chicks takes the longest. I need to do the 90 gallon aquarium too, poor fishies.
But of course I also need to pick up a myriad of toys, do the dishes, fold laundry…
And school. I need to do school with Rosie and Ada both. Our friends are getting here about 3:20, and it’s already 11:30 because we accidentally slept so late. Shew.
Oh, real quick while I’m procrastinating cleaning: Plexus update!
I’ve been taking all three products in the triplex pack. The pink drink, the BioCleanse, and ProBio5 (probiotic).
The pink drink has definitely lessened my cravings for sugar, remarkably so. I used to wake up in the morning and immediately drink a Coke. Then have another Coke at lunch, and one or two more in the afternoon.
Now? I will open a can of Coke at lunch and then be like…blah. It tastes good, but I find I don’t really want/need to drink all of it. I just end up drinking about half. Pretty crazy.
Tyler has been taking the three products also. He swears to me that they don’t do anything. And then he is dismayed because he usually eats like 10 Oreos at once, and now after three he feels gross and his body just doesn’t want them–instead of craving more and more. Hah! It does work.
(Yes, I am a surprised as the rest of us.)
If nothing else, this has been worth it for me to break my out of control sugar addiction. I have energy. I don’t feel weak and have a dull, foggy headache all the time and crave tons of sugar to try and pick myself up. I love it!
Now for some TMI:
The BioCleanse is a supplement that contains magnesium, which helps the bowls. The ProBio5 is an amazing probiotic that breaks down the cell walls of yeast so you can get rid of it. (Yeast makes you crave sugar and carbs!)
As everyone and their mother probably knows I’ve had IBS forever, and it was due to Giardia causing leaky gut. So the IBS included constipation and diarrhea, and some kind of horrible sticky poop, tons of pain in my lower intestines, and general constant misery.
I’ve only been using the three products for about a week and a half, and just the pink drink alone for a bit longer.
So far things in the poo department are not perfect, but they are somewhat improved and I have hope they will continue to improve.
I’m still having some constipation, however I am not having any diarrhea or disturbing sticky poop!! I am indeed feeling better.
The leaky gut didn’t happen in a day, and it’s not going to heal in a day, but now I have hope that it is possible to heal things. I can feel this probiotic making a huge difference in my gut–no more pain, hardly any gas, and my favorite part? I HAVEN’T HAD ANY MISERABLE BLOATING!
I would often feel super full and disgusting for no apparent reason, and my belly would even swell up. That is gone. GONE!
I’ve had that issue for years you all.
I’m really excited to see what ProBio5 continues to do to help improve things as I heal and my good bacteria levels rise.
I’ve had a few bad days here and there this past week where I felt really awful. I think they were due to die off. I know with all the insane sugar cravings I’ve had for years that I probably had yeast overgrowth. I’m not sure how long it will take to fully rid of that, but I’m ready for it to be gone.
My brain feels clearer. I like that. I feel like I did when I was a teenager–I have energy, my body feels light instead of like it’s trapped in lead shackles. It’s goooood.
My friend’s husband also tried Plexus. He had diarrhea without ever a solid poo for two years. We had talked about it before because of my giardia struggles, and he wondered if he might have the same thing, but didn’t want to go to the doctor and do all the testing.
Well he did the triplex products for two weeks with no improvement.
Then…one day he had a completely normal, solid poop.
For the first time in two years!!
So it appears that Plexus is not a scam. You can’t improve your poop with a placebo. You just can’t. Especially when you don’t even believe it will really work.
Honestly you guys, I’m kind of at a loss for words. I feel like I’m on the edge of something great, both for myself and for others looking for help with IBS, diarrhea, sugar cravings, yeast, bloating, indigestion…
I really didn’t think it would work. I tried it because it’s non-gmo and all plant based, and because they have a sixty day money back guarantee so there was little to lose. It turns out I gained a lot, lost nothing, and now I just don’t know what to think.
The Plexus experiment shall continue on for the unforeseeable future, because now I need to know how much better I can feel.
And, just FYI the 15% off ends April 15th. I don’t have anyone on my “team” yet because I didn’t start this to sell it and form a team, but at the moment I am totally seeing the appeal of sharing this with friends who need help feeling better since it actually works. It might be fun.
If you’re thinking about joining me now is the time, before that 15% off is over! If you have any questions or want help signing up leave me a note and I’ll be glad to chat with you about it.
