Lacie Love Hester

Hello everyone!  For those of you that don’t know me, I am Lacie Love Hester.  I have Lupus.  Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that causes me to have severe pain due to inflammation.  It also makes me feel totally exhausted and makes all my joints swell.  I also am super sensitive to sunlight, my hair easily falls out and I get blood clots very easily.  I hate having a Lupus flare up.  (A flare up can be caused by infection, stress, and etc)

illustration_urtica_dioica0Most doctors manage Lupus flare ups by giving a patient steroids, pain medication, antibiotics (if there is an infection), and an anti malaria drug that helps with the Lupus. High doses of steroids are used to help reduce the inflammation. Steroids make me constantly hungry and very emotional.  Not to mention, it also makes me feel even more tired.  So, one day my wife, Abigail Hester, made me a Nettle Infusion. She said that it would help me feel better.

Abigail got her quart size jar and put the nettle and boiling water in it, until it was full.  Four hours later, she drained the nettle infusion and put the liquid in a cup for me.  I was quite skeptical that this spinach green water was going to taste good much less help, but I took a sip anyways.  I ended up drinking the whole cup of it.  It wasn’t that bad tasting and I am a pretty picky eater.  (if it isn’t junk food or sweet, I generally don’t like it)

The next day, I actually felt a little less achy.  I even had a little more energy than I did the day before.  So, I got Abigail to make me another Nettle Infusion.  I drank it and the next day, was the same way, a little more energy and a less swelling.  So, it got to the point where I was drinking these infusions every day for a week.

nettleAt the end of that week, I actually felt better all over.  I felt like I had some of the energy that I so missed. I was able to get actually get some relief from all the pain I had been in as well.  I began to actually consider my daily Nettle Infusions as a part of my Lupus regime. Because of the Nettle, I don’t have to take a large dose of steroids for all the inflammation. I actually take half the dosage amount of steroids that I used to take every day for inflammation. When I skip a day drinking my Nettle infusion, I can tell a huge difference.

So,if you have any inflammatory disease, you might want to try doing Nettle Infusions. What do you have to lose?  You might be surprised how a large cup of a Nettle Infusion helps you feel a little more energetic and less achy.  It works for me.

In closing this article, I want to say that I am looking forward to sharing and talking to everyone about Abigail and my weight loss course.  I am currently 5’8” tall and 243 lbs.  I had made up my mind to eat healthier for a healthier me.  I am going to lose weight and share the tips that I find along the way with everyone.  So come join us as we begin our 12 Week Weight Loss Course.

waterstix

WaterStix

WaterStix is natural spring water in four ounce containers that fit in a pocket or purse. Although Waterstix was developed for skiers and snowboarders, it soon became apparent there were other great uses:

• Women love the fact they fit in a small purse.
• Men fit them comfortably in pant, suit coat and sport coat pockets.
• Waterstix fits in a briefcase crowded with papers, files, cell phones and blackberries.
• Waterstix goes in your sweat pants pocket to the gym or out for a jog.
• They go in a crowded car console leaving room for another beverage in the cup holder.
• Carry them with you to swallow pills or supplements when the time is right.
• You can take Waterstix whenever you are away from your car – the kid’s soccer games, walking through the mall or the park, or waiting in line at the grocery store, the post office or the bank.

And with Waterstix there is no waste – you finish the whole bottle every time.


Exercise – ­ Exercise helps to control your appetite while burning calories and building muscle.

sleepfix

SleepFix

As an adult, how often do you experience that kind of innocent sleep you knew as a child? Good sleep imparts a refreshing and stimulating attitude that physiologically and psychologically touches the core of youthfulness.
When we were young, our mothers’ “incantations” worked because we were biochemically young, producing hormones and neurotransmitters abundantly and releasing the right amounts in the right proportions at the right times.
Well, you can, in a sense, be more youthful again, by helping your body bolster its supplies of those same hormones and neurotransmitters … by supplementing with SleepFix™, a rationally determined formulation that contains the right ingredients in the right amounts … that’s how.*
The ingredients in SleepFix have been scientifically shown to naturally help support:
  • Falling asleep faster*
  • A good night’s sleep*
  • The refreshment of sleep*
With SleepFix, you may recapture what it was like to sleep like a baby, so try it and see if you don’t SleepFix tonight.*

Support system is critical – Be sure to participate in the conversations happening in our course

I hope the above weight loss tips will offer some help to you as they do for me.
