The turning point came as I lay in the hospital. I could see the tears in my eldest daughter’s eyes, and hear the fear in her voice as she said, “Mom, I’m scared you’re going to die.”
Those words hit me hard. I told her not only was I not going to die, but I was going to get better. And I meant it. I was going to do everything possible to find my way back to health.
I firmly believe I could not have restored my health without the natural detox and plant-sourced nutrition of Touchstone Essentials; and that it is the meaningful answer so many others are looking for.
It all started back in April 2006 when I fell and broke my back. The emergency room physicians misdiagnosed my case, and simply sent me home with strong pain meds and a prescription to get back to normal.
Hard as I tried, getting back to normal was awful. I was in so much pain.
After going back and demanding a referral from my doctor, I was finally seen by specialists who saw the break. They believed it could be repaired by a fairly non-invasive procedure. What we didn’t know at the time was that I had advanced osteoporosis, and moving the bone only made it worse.
I was sent home and told that pain management was now my only option. From that point on, my health deteriorated. I experienced a lack of feeling in both legs, my blood work was bad, my thyroid was out of whack, and I struggled to get any sleep.
Exhausted and in pain, I spent about 80% of my time in bed. My husband, Warren, had to take a leave of absence to care for me, and friends and family did all they could to help. While well-intentioned, my doctors simply treated symptoms, and didn’t have solutions.
In 2012, I reached that point in the hospital where I had had enough of living this way. I didn’t yet know what I was going to do, but I knew I had to do something.
Looking back now, I believe it is nothing short of a miracle that my health was restored. My journey took many twists and turns, until I finally found what worked for me.
I knew my body was full of toxins, and that I was deficient in nutrition, so I started there. I ditched my meds, and turned to every detox protocol and supplement I could find. I bought countless programs, but only saw small improvements.
Then late in 2013, I heard about a new approach to supplements, one founded on nourishing whole foods. I went to a local event to learn more. That was the day I discovered Touchstone Essentials. It was the day my path to healing and health truly began.
Upon learning the other supplements I had been taking (without much success) were actually full of synthetics and chemicals, I threw them out. Something that should have been healthy was anything but. I felt I had been sold a lie.
I started a whole body detox with Touchstone Essentials, taking both Pure Body and Pure Body Extra Strength along with the whole food nutrition. My body was so toxic I experienced a rare phenomenon called a Herxheimer’s reaction, where my systems were overwhelmed by the release of all the toxins. At first, I felt worse—tired and achy.
Once my initial detox reaction passed, it was amazing.
Suddenly, I felt better than I had in over 7 years. I could now sleep at night! My energy levels were restored. I could now walk around without discomfort. I could get out of the house. Go shopping if I wanted. One step forward in healing led to another. I have lost weight, my skin glows and I look younger from the inside out.
My doctor was blown away by my results and reviewed the information I gave him about zeolites and whole food supplements. He then called me to say, “Whatever you do, don’t stop taking this.”
I know my story is unusual, and that most people don’t have such severe challenges. Yet I believe if someone as sick as I was can benefit so much, then everyone can benefit!
When you find something that is vastly superior to everything else that’s available, something that makes a real difference in people’s lives, it’s no longer a question of if you want to share it. You HAVE to share it. It matters too much.
Today, the most rewarding part for me is hearing the stories of those we’ve shared Touchstone Essentials with. Getting a call or a text message of thanks, from someone who says, “I feel like a new person” is just the best feeling in the world.
With Touchstone Essentials I am on a mission to make hundreds and thousands of lives better. Not only is it my life’s purpose, it is also a worthy profession. Best of all, every dollar I earn means someone is getting better.
I invite everyone to join this mission to help thousands more live a meaningful life of health and happiness. When you do, you’ll earn amazing rewards and make a big difference!
