OUR PERSONAL ISAGENIX STORY
It's interesting how life will show you the solutions you are yearning for when you're ready for them. It actually took us over two years to even give Isagenix a try after first learning about it. In hindsight, we wish we hadn't waited so long... however, we both believe that Isagenix came to us at the perfect, right time. Here's our own personal story.
"It was like someone turned the lights back on for me!"
Before Isagenix, I was feeling pretty low in most areas of my life. I was tired and my body hurt all the time plus, I knew intuitively on some level that my body was full of toxins. I always felt bloated and even though I ate and slept well - something wasn't quite right. My doctor couldn't find anything wrong either.
So, I was on a hunt to find some kind of whole-body cleanse that my sensitive body could actually do - to hopefully find some relief and feel better.
In the past I had attempted many types of cleanses with no success. I tried the classic lemon juice/maple syrup/cayenne cleanse many times - only to feel really sick within the first or second day with a wretched headache and pain. I also tried the health-food store types of cleanses - only to find myself constantly on the toilet purging in unpleasant ways.
In the mid 80s for eight years, I owned and operated my own business in North Vancouver where I worked as screen-printer working around toxic plastisol inks, fumes and cleaning agents. At one point I discovered that one green coloured ink we were using was full of the heavy-metal, lead!!
I knew I needed to find something to help me clear my body of all the accumulated impurities and toxins from this past work including from our environments. I so much wanted to feel better.
I found out about Isagenix from our local yoga teacher here in Burnaby. Every six months or so, she'd deliver her yoga schedule/flyer through our door and always offered 'cellular cleansing' with Isagenix as part of her programs.
So, I called Sheri up to find out more. When I first had a look at Isagenix, I have to admit I felt overwhelmed and didn't try it right away. I didn't understand how it worked as a system. I just didn't know back then how simple Isagenix really was. I didn't educate myself.
However, around the same time, a good friend recommended another type of cleanse that seemed a lot simpler and easy and so, gave that a try instead.
Again, this cleanse didn't work - again, it seemed way too harsh for my body and frustrated, I quit and just about gave up.
Two years or so later, Joan was looking to join another weight loss program. She had shared with me that she had pretty much done every weight loss program out there. I was impressed to how diligent she was to follow a program to a tee. Sure she'd lose the weight - though, only to gain it back again.
When she was thinking to join Weight Watchers again, I shared with her about Isagenix. Over that last two years, I had stayed on Sheri's mailing list and, I don't know why, I just did. I had been impressed by some of the stories they were sharing about how people were feeling so good, losing weight and keeping it off - Isagenix was changing people's lives.
I suggested that Joan have a look at Isagenix and give Sheri a call and check it out further. Joan was also thinking of taking one of Sheri's Pilates classes and thought adding one of the Isagenix starter programs Sheri was offering might be a way to give Isagenix a try.
So, that's what Joan did. On the evening of her first Pilates class she came home with an Isagenix Shake + Cleanse Pak.
I have to admit, I felt a little jealous that she was trying it because I was so intrigued by their cleanse for Life component. Joan suggested that we both give it a try together so we could support each other.
Wow - I'm so thankful that we finally gave Isagenix a try!
Within that first week, it was like someone 'turned the lights back on' for me - seriously. I was feeling a whole new sense of renewed energy. My body was feeling alive again and my mood was more up. I didn't feel so low.
I really like the simplicity of the system. We both dived right into the program exactly as they suggested. We both felt so ready to do this. Joan was feeling really good too.
After about 10 days, I was noticing that my jeans weren't as tight - I wasn't feeling so bloated like I had been. I also felt like my body was feeling 'fed' nutritionally where I wasn't craving the usual 'filler foods' I was always grabbing for - like toast and other empty snack foods.
When we completed that first starter pak, we ordered a '30-day Cleansing + Fat Burning System' and we continued to feel even better and better. One exciting benefit for me was I was dropping more weight - which I didn't expect. When I would measure myself, I had have to do it about 3 times or more because I couldn't believe I was reading the tape measure right. Isagenix nutrition has helped me to release 25+ pounds and numerous inches in addition to helping me feel really good.
I wish I had taken before+after photos to show you... though I do have this one of my face (see below)... where you can see the difference of how bloated I was.
I am so grateful that I finally found a nutritional system of dense micro-nutrient super foods that help me feel better and frankly, I will never go without it. Isagenix also helped me to clear my body of the toxins and impurities my body was hanging on to = yeah! The 'Cleanse for Life' is a very gentle cleanse on my body - I was thrilled I could actually do it. I don't feel any unpleasant side-effects like the other cleanses I had tried so many times.
So, that's my story on how I found out about Isagenix - please feel free to contact us if you have any questions at all. I welcome you to give Isagenix a try - don't wait like I did.
Thanks for having a read...
Wishing you the best in your health...
"I'm now down six dress sizes!"
Before Isagenix, I was feeling exhausted, disgruntled and unhappy with my weight and lack of energy.
But most of all, what really plagued me was mind fog. I was not able to remember peoples' names, was at a loss for finding the right words, and feeling a loss of confidence in my ability to do the work I loved and derived great joy in doing.
I was introduced to Isagenix when a flyer came through our door announcing an introductory Pilates class and weight loss program.
I immediately spoke to my partner and said that I was interested in joining the class and as it was happening down the street from us, it was like an answer to a prayer.
I immediately called and was met with a warm and welcoming voice. I was given the information on the class and on the Shake + Cleanse Pak and from that time forward, I have not looked back.
That first gift of a Shake and Cleanse Pak and Ionix Supreme on January 21, 2010 convinced me that this was what I was looking for. For years, I had joined every weight loss program and lost and gained all the pounds back and more. I was having success and I was feeling great.
As a result, I am now feeling clear and healthy and fit. I am down six dress sizes. I belong to a gym and participate in classes that I never thought I would be doing at the age of sixty-nine.... BodyCombat, BodyPump, Spinning classes, CRX, Tai Chi and Yoga.
I am now having my children and friends say how impressed they are that I have lost so much weight and am keeping it off. I am passionate about sharing my success with others who may be looking for something to help them.
It's been a pleasure to share my story with you. If you'd like to know more about my story with Isagenix, please contact us anytime.
