Before I began Maximized Livings 5 essentials, my blood sugar levels were a constant concern as a Type 2 diabetic. Even though I was taking my prescribed medications daily, monitoring my diet, and regularly testing my blood sugar levels, my blood sugar was never consistent. My levels actually soared no matter how much medication I took or how little food I ate.
I finally began to find real answers for my health at Trinity Chiropractic, a Maximized Living Health Center. I was invited to follow the 5 essentials that include: mentally controlling my attitude, receiving consistent chiropractic adjustments, dedication to an elite nutritional plan, regular exercise, and attention to decreasing the toxins in my environment. While this seemed like quite a challenge, being healed from Diabetes and living a high quality of life was worth some sacrifice and hard work!
After 3 months, I have lost a total of 30 pounds. My blood sugar levels have stabilized and I am taking much less medication than before! I look forward to exercise. I have more energy than I have had in months! Instead of growing older, I am holding my own and feeling younger, more positive and full of well-being.
