In 2005 – we started our journey – ” LIVING LIFE TO THE PLUS ” !
It was my wife Sherry who first started and and after 3 1/2 months – I finally got it through my thick Irish head that “HEY” something is happening!
Little things – but first where did this all take place ? Well – she said to me – there is a Health Expo at the D.C. Capital One center – and is sponsored by the network NBC for your health . Well – I was game – and into Washington D.C. we went !
Now – with over thousand of vendors – my aim was to go to the stage and concessions – eat and watch the entertainment – and meet up later. Which is exactly what I did. She in turn – found a Healthy eating booth – and bought the product – Fruits – Vegetables and berries in a capsule !
Since she hated vegetables ( since then she has developed a craving for them ) it was a easy fix for what she was not eating ! However – as I was eating my second cheeseburger ( yes – I was that bad ) she asked me if I wanted to try this out ? NOPE – I was fine – I went to have my checkup every six months – I was on MEDS and had no desire !
Long story short – I STARTED TO NOTICE LITTLE THINGS – like her hair was more shiny – her fingernails were growing faster – she was able to read at night in bed without her glasses – and she started eating vegetables ! That was something she hated !
So – I asked her – why are you doing this and what made you try it ? She replied – I needed to make a change and it was there – it clicked plus they had the RESEARCH proving what it did ! ( today there are 36 published papers) Then she said – ” YOU CAN DO THIS WITH ME – OR I WILL DO IT WITHOUT YOU – BUT I WANT YOU IN MY LIFE ” !
That was the day we both started living ” LIFE TO THE PLUS ” ! Almost 14 years now – and – because I was a terrible fast food junkie for 35 years – I paid the price – I had done the damage before I started my new eating lifestyle. In 2013 – I had the WIDOW MAKERS heart attack !
One blockage of 100 % – one at 90 % – one at 79 % and one at 60 % !
All those years – eating bad – BUT – had I not changed – I would not be here- the doctors told me just that – I was the most healthy heart attack person they had ever seen. I had FOUR BY PASSES – and within 52 hours – I was home standing in my living room being nicknamed ” THE RABBIT ” for how fast I recovered by the hospital staff !
Now one of the researches done by the University of Maryland – was on the Berries and how when combined with the fruits and vegetables – helped to keep the arteries open after a high fat meal !
I honestly believe that it was that one thing that kept me alive! I will always believe that – and that is why today we are LOVING LIFE TO THE PLUS !
JUICE PLUS was and is my savior – I believe that – it is my life and my belief. I will continue to take it – and almost 14 years later – I have my wife to thank for it . For without her telling me – ” I WANT YOU IN MY LIFE TOGETHER” and ” I WANT YOU WITH ME ” well – I am still here – this is just a part of my story of living out my dreams.
Thank you all for reading – “PAPA’S WORLD ” is alive – God Bless ! HGD
