I do NOT wish for the FDA to accuse me of proclaiming miracle cures, but as for me personally? I do call myself cured. This is MY story. It’s MY experience. Shakeology did, in fact, take away every seasonal allergy symptom I’ve suffered through like clockwork since the late 1990’s.
I’m gonna tell you how it happened. But first, let me start from the beginning.
I was getting sick all of the time. It especially hit me hard through winter and early spring. And after many doses of unsuccessful antibiotic treatments, I still couldn’t get well. I was on antibiotics about every 12 weeks. Not good. Then came two hernia surgeries due to severe coughing fits.
I was a sickly, hot mess.
Finally, an Ear Nose & Throat specialist gave me a different diagnoses. Those weren’t persistent colds I was experiencing. I was suffering from allergies! And according to the doc, all those years of untreated allergies caused me to have “one of the worse cases of sinus disease” he’d ever seen. Yup. That’s what he told me. I have the CAT scans to prove it.
Tests revealed that I’m allergic to felines and certain environmental factors, like ragweed ‘n such. So I got rid of the the cat (Smokey is an outside critter now) and went through a grueling sinus surgery (terrible, terrible surgery & recovery, but highly recommended if your doc says you need it). Those two solutions worked pretty good, but I still suffered-miserable from the environmentally triggered allergies that continued to cause sinus infections – I’m talking the kind with green, infection chunks of boogers, a mucous lined throat, fever, etc… (sorry to be graphic, but it’s true).
I declined allergy shots, swore off antibiotics, said no to anti-inflammatory steroids to treat my allergies, and looked to the homeopathic solution instead: nasal rinses. And those rinses are a fabulous treatment (I’ll share more on that later)! But the fact remained – my allergies were still not gone. I had to stay on top of my treatments to live normally. And I prayed that I didn’t get another hernia from allergic coughing fits.
Then, in winter 2010, I started using Shakeology to help me with my fitness goals.
I’m gonna lie. Initially, I had sticker shock when I saw the price. One of my eyeballs actually popped out and rolled down the hallway (I used 5-second rule to pop it back in). I was NOT happy about the price at all. But after doing a bit of budgeting-math, I decided to make it part of my food budget. The video right here is what sealed the Shakeology deal for me.
So anyway, I’ve been using Shakeology for close to a year now, but it wasn’t until the other day that I realized something pretty significant: I have NOT had a seasonal allergy symptom or even required homeopathic treatment for my allergies since last year! This is the first time year in over 10 years (since I first began have allergy symptoms) that I am allergy-free!
There are a ton of testimonials about people who not only lost weight with Shakeology, but also lowered their cholesterol, and got off Diabetes and thyroid medications as well. Now I have a testimonial too: my allergies are gone.
- Will I still sneeze if someone throws a half-pound of environmental dust into my face? Yesss (and so would you)
- Do outdoor pollens and other common seasonal allergens affect me anymore? Noooo. No even close.
This is my story. That’s how my allergies got bitch-slapped.
