How did you come to be so passionate about health and wellness?
I am passionate about the effects of nutritional supplements and CBD because of the way they changed my own life. They took me from the bottom to the top.
I used to do wrestling and martial arts since I was a young boy. My whole family was very athletic, so I was always pushing myself further. At the time, I was young, and I didn’t think about the consequences of pushing too hard or the importance of resting the body and maintaining good nutrition.
Much later, as I grew into my 50’s, I started developing pain all over, but primarily in my back. It reached a point where I had seven disks in my back that required surgery, in addition to issues in my neck, knees, elbows, and feet. In 2012, I was legally disabled. I couldn’t stay standing for more than ten minutes at a time. My doctor was surprised I could even walk. For someone so athletic who was always a “tough guy”, it was very difficult to not even be able to take care of my basic needs.
My wife, who is less than half my weight, had to physically support me whenever we went out. People were always staring, wondering why I was leaning on this woman less than half my size. Although difficult, I was ready to accept that I needed a wheelchair. After all, there is no shame in aging. However, there was a better way to do it.
Not being able to go out as much, I started reading much more and discussing wellness with nutritionists, dietitians, and other health experts. I followed research and started studying obsessively, slowly implementing daily changes that saved my life. Nutritional and CBD supplements turned my condition around.
Prior, I was taking several medications simultaneously and was in desperate need of surgery. Today, I don’t take or require any medication on a regular basis and I never went through with any surgery, and my health is in good standing with my doctor. I was then able to witness how these daily changes helped my friends and family with so many of their health issues.
The greatest joy is not even my maintaining my own health, but helping others achieve better health. I’m 67 years old today, but I feel as good as I did when I was 40. If you don’t believe me, stop by the shop and see!
And above all, it’s not even complicated. Maintaining good health can be simple with the addition of nutritional and CBD supplements. Life is precious. The body and mind are dependent on each other and we need to take good care of them.
