Hopeless. Without hope, life is like a journey through the desert. Eye feel full of sand. Itching, gritty, burning. As you walk, your mouth dries out. Mouth feels like it is full of cotton. Can’t swallow, can’t speak. As you walk, your joints hurt, skin burns you become tired. The life of Sjogren’s.
But not all those who wander are lost. There is hope! You have the power to get back in charge of your own health! Check out all the tools in your tool-belt! I always start with lifestyle tips (below) and a baseline set of labs that you can ask your doctor (complete blood panel (CBC), complete metabolic panel (CMP), thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and its antibodies (antithyroglobuin antibodies, anti-tpo antibody), thyroid panel with reverse T3, antinuclear antibodies, urine analysis, ferritin, fasting lipids, fasting insulin, HbA1c, B12, magnesium, vitamin D 25OH, hsCRP and homocysteine). Check out all these amazing tools! Start here:
The fire that rages within your gut and and the prison that Sjogren’s has kept you in, has kept you stuck—despite that, look at all you have accomplished! It takes someone very special to have done all that you have done, competing with those who are not fighting a battle within! You are a gem—I can’t say that enough.
Now imagine a life with no fire that burns within, a life full of peace, a life full of energy, a life full of unlimited possibilities—what can you accomplish, what will you do? OOO it’s already giving me goose bumps because the sky’s the limit, I can’t wait to watch you fly! With no other distractions and nothing to drag you down, anything you put your mind to could be yours.
Your condition doesn’t have to define you. You can finally take charge of your own health! You are a blessing to this world and those around you. Let’s begin that transformation, implement The Holistic Rx, and finally escape the hamster wheel for good!
The first couple weeks are going to be hard, but once you get the hang of it, as the energy and pain improve, it will not be so bad—it’s actually quite rewarding. I am here for you! We can do this together! Take it one day at a time, one meal at a time! Slowly you will transform into who you were meant to be, the real and authentic you!
Get ready to transform to a more energetic you! Transform to a pain-free you! Transform into a happier you! The ups and downs in your journey will only make you stronger!
You are so worth it, do this for yourself. Haven’t you waited long enough? I have provided you with the information you need to set yourself free—imagine the places you could go! Look out world, here you come!!! You got this—nothing can bring you down again!!!! So much hope! Good by dryness!
