About 5 or 6 years ago, my health started to deteriorate and it seemed like I was hitting a new low every day. My biggest issue was fatigue – regardless of how much I slept, I woke up feeling like I needed another 8 hours to function properly. Some mornings, I was so tired that I had to take a break from brushing my teeth to sit down and rest. I wanted to keep up with my children’s active lives but my body was too weak.
My symptoms were immobilizing and extreme, so much so that they disrupted my daily life. At one point, my pain was so bad that getting a hug from my kids was too taxing on my body. The only solution I could think of was to sleep through it all and forget. The last thing I wanted was to fall victim to the cycle of prescription drugs.
I was eventually diagnosed with fibromyalgia and hypothyroidism. It was around this time I started researching the Lorna brand. Today, I’m following a natural regimen of THYROsmart, ESTROsmart, IRONsmart, and MAGsmart. I feel rejuvenated and my energy has multiplied! My hormones are balanced, and I feel amazing. I can now stand in my kitchen without pain and cook healthy meals for me and my children.
What do I want people to learn from my story? That it’s never too late to be healthy, and as 47-year-old mother of two, I am a living proof.
As a 19-year-old, I’ve got a lot going on (pageants, competitive volleyball, school, YouTube, and my job as a social media influencer). Amidst it all, I forgot to pay attention to myself and what matters most – my health. Once I saw how far my mom had come on her health journey, I wanted in.
To be honest, I had no idea I was iron deficient until I got the tests done. I was oblivious to all the symptoms I was experiencing, even my obsession with eating ice – one of the telltale signs of anemia. It was on my mom’s recommendation that I started IRONsmart.
Living in southwestern Ontario, my mother and I also lacked the Vitamin D we needed to be healthy. So, we started Vitamin D droplets for bone health and IMMUNOsmart to get us through the winter months.
The both of us have always felt a connection to natural health and with Lorna we found our perfect match. Thank you to each and every member of the Lorna team – you’ve truly helped us get our lives back.
