“I got off 15 Rx med­i­ca­tions!”

First For Women - - Nutrition -

Ly­ing in bed, too drained to get up, Shan­non re­counted all the ways her weak­en­ing health had robbed her of in­de­pen­dence. She could no longer hold a job, take care of her house or so­cial­ize with friends. I just want to get bet­ter, she thought. I just want the pain to go away.

For years, Shan­non strug­gled with mys­te­ri­ous fa­tigue and health is­sues, in­clud­ing chronic strep, slow thy­roid and stom­ach pains. Doc­tors didn’t know what was wrong but kept pre­scrib­ing med­i­ca­tions—15 in all. “Be­ing sick is a long, lonely jour­ney,” she says. “I can re­call plenty of times when I lost hope.”

Med­i­cal Medium books was a turn­ing point. Shan­non dis­cov­ered she had hid­den Ep­stein-Barr virus that was con­tribut­ing to her health is­sues. She be­gan eat­ing healing fruit and veg­gies and drink­ing cel­ery juice and a detox smoothie ev­ery day.

Within the first week, Shan­non’s fa­tigue be­gan to lift. Soon she shed 80 pounds, and for the first time in a decade, felt her strength build as her thy­roid symp­toms van­ished.

Her doc­tor was amazed. “She told me how im­pressed she was that I’d got­ten bet­ter so quickly,” says

Shan­non, who is now off all her med­i­ca­tions.

“Hon­estly, I never thought

I’d get well.

Now I’m liv­ing my best life!”
