I am a happily married, 43yo mom of 4, including twins with disabilities who is ready to change her life.

A decade ago I woke up one morning and fell to the floor unable to walk. For months, I gasped for air while my heart beat uncontrollably in my chest. I was sent from one doctor to the next. Subsequently, I was diagnosed with MVP w/moderate regurgitation, Tachycardia, Asthma, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. I quit smoking, quit caffeine and went on numerous meds, including two steroids, to halt the diseases ravaging my body. I gained 70lbs, lost mobility in my right hip and continued to grow sicker everyday. Not feeling like the meds or doctors were helping, I began educating myself on natural methods used to halt my conditions and improve my health. I fired my doctors and stopped all meds a year ago.

Now it's time for this excess weight to go!!!
