Much To My Surprise

Hello All! I am so excited. As you may know, yesterday, Saturday, November 15, 2008, was my first day trying Isagenix. The first two days, Saturday and Sunday are pre-cleanse days. It is easy and does not taste as bad as I have read and heard! My sponsor, Ms "L" told me to mix the vanilla with the chocolate, and it tastes okay. Here is my schedule:

7:00 a.m. - IsaShake (1 scoop chocolate & 1 scoop vanilla)
One Accelerator Capsule
1 oz of Ionix Supreme (this stuff is great!)

9:00 a.m. - Snack (small organic apple or IsaSnack)
10:30 a.m. - Snack (if desired)

12:00 noon - Lunch - Sensible Meal (400-600 calories)
One Accelerator Capsule

2:00 p.m. - Snack (as above)
3:30 p.m. - Snack (as above if desired)

5:00 p.m. - IsaShake

6:00 p.m. - Snack (as above)
8:00 p.m. - Snack (as above)
Ionic Supreme before bedtime
Isa Flush

Much to my surprise, I was not hungry AND.... drum roll....... my blood glucose was below 100! That has never ever happened!!! Now, you have to understand that I am on 4 medications (out of the 42 pills/day) to control my blood gulcose including insulin! My highest glucose reading was around 450! (As you know that is near comatose levels). After being placed on Januvia, Metformin, Glyburide, and Levinir (insulin); my blood glucose levels averaged around 150 and sometimes peaked to 200+ (especially if I had orange juice). The night after my first day on Isagenix, my blood glucose was 79! This morning, Sunday, November 16, 2008, my blood glucose reading was 88! And, after my a.m. IsaShake and returning from church, around 1:13 pm, my glucose reading was 77!

In the one year I've been on the glucose medications, my readings have NEVER been under 100! I am too excited. I will call my Endocrinologist on Monday and asked if I should take the medications whenever I have a low reading. Maybe I am jumping the gun a bit, but I am a little leary of taking the medications with a reading of 77! That is getting too low. My dream is to eventually get off the glucose medications and the insulin.

The 2nd -- Much to my surprise -- is that I went to bed early. Because of my nature and the medication I usually do not sleep. Sometimes I go to bed around 4:00 a.m. or 6:00 a.m. and wake up at 8:00 a.m. There are times that I have not slept for two to three days in a row! Of course, my doctors gave me medication to help me sleep; but given the amount of medication that I take, I try to avoid the sleeping meds. (I only take them if I haven't slept for two or three days). Well........... drum roll............ I went to bed early (around 11:00 p.m.) and I actually "slept" and I slept through the night! Now, my sponsor told me that the Ionic Supreme would help me to sleep (it is an all natural product). Ms. "L" said that the Ionic Supreme balances the body and gives it what it needs! But results in one day! I'm am surprised!

Well, I must say that thus far I am happy with my results. Now, the first two days are pre-cleanse days. The next two days are "Cleanse Days," which means I will only have the Cleanse for Life Drink, water (which is always recommended on all days), Accelerator Capsule (2 times a day); and an IsaSnack (I have to check this and let you know). After the two days of Cleanse, I will be back on the IsaShakes!

I know you can tell I am so excited!

To reiterate, the stuff doesn't taste too bad (especially if you mix the vanilla with the chocolate). I will try the vanilla and chocolate separately and report back to you. I also have IsaFruit to mix with the vanilla (suppose to taste like strawberry).

I have taken "before" pictures and all measurements. I'll see if I have the nerve to post them . As of now, I have to make an appointment with a GI (Gastroenterologist) because one of the meds is causing serious bloating?

Anyway, thanks for listening. I'll report how I do on the days for "Cleanse" only.

Cheers & Be Well!


P.S. I have to say, Isagenix does not diagnose, cure, etc. any diseases. It is a healthly, natural, cleansing program -- great for your cells, body, and healthy natural weight loss.
