I know I’ve talked about gut health imbalances and the link to autoimmune diseases.
Believe me I’m skeptical of products that make claims that they can fix or cure my disease. I’ve researched and tried numerous products and foods with no success.
On July 4th I started taking Plexus slim after having lunch with a friend. I believe our meeting was meant to be because she did not meet me to discuss the products she distributes. Our conversation evolved and before long we were talking about my RA.
She told me about her best friend that has MS and RA and how she’s used these products and gotten off meds and is in remission.
This wasn’t a testimonial from someone who is thousands of miles away but someone who is a person that I could call if I wanted to. I was intrigued.
So I started using Plexus slim to only introduce one thing at a time in hopes of balancing my microbiome. There are numerous scientific studies about RA and gut health. A lot of RA patients have an overabundance of one particular “bad” bacteria and not enough good bacteria.
I started this before Humira could possibly work and noticed a difference within a week.
I firmly believe the product is working.
Humira takes time to work and I had only one injection before taking Slim and setting results.
My pain and inflammation is much improved.
I’ll be discussing this with my rheumatologist since she recognizes that we are seriously behind in research here in the US.
I’m still having issues with Humira and side effects. I’ll take another injection this Friday but if the side effects continue she wants to discuss another biologic.
I’ll be discussing taking a break from meds altogether and seeing if I can go into remission on my own.
I’ll be smart about it and certainly she can track my progress by blood markers.
If you’re interested in talking about the products I’m happy to have that conversation. I will be distributing them now myself. That’s how much I believe in the link to gut health and autoimmune diseases as well as other issues.
