Our health is really the forefront of our lives. When we maintain good health, we can often feel unstoppable. But most of us have experienced the effects of having to struggle with our health and when that happens, it can affect how we live our everyday lives. This is my story.
My name is Leyda Cruz, I live in the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. A place where one often spends a lot of time at the beach, being active and care-free. But for a long time, I was not able to enjoy this tropical paradise. You see, I struggled with bacteria in my gut called Candida Albicans. This nasty little bug can be difficult to get rid of. Because of this, my thyroid levels, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels were out of control; making it hard to for me to lose weight. This also led to severe cell poisoning and inflammation in my body. I got to the point where I couldn’t live a normal life – my typical run to the grocery store became a chore and some days it was too hard for me to leave the house. I knew there was something that could be done and wasn’t ready to give up just yet.
I wanted a change in my health and I knew that I needed something to change in order to live and enjoy my children. I struggled every morning against everything that was happening to me, I even went to the gym, trying to do my part to lose weight.
Little did I know, I would meet someone in my step class that would help contribute to a major change in my life. Vasty Rivera, who is now a great friend of mine, approached me after a workout one morning at the gym. She poured her a sample of Balance Cholesterol and shared the many benefits that this little supplement holds. I was then invited to a presentation where I learned in depth, all about Unicity’s products. I started using Unicity Cleanse and started seeing a change in my health. This encouraged me to link up with a health and fitness coach, Jones Paradizo, who helped in developing a personalized nutrition plan, finding supplements that worked best for me and tracking my fitness progression. In just a short year, I have lost over 120 pounds! I’ve gone from a size 18 to a size 5.
My life has changed completely. My health has made a 180 degree turn around. I was almost bedridden, had multiple health problems and felt like my life did not belong to me. Today I am active, feel amazing, and have just finished a 5K for the first time. If you get anything from my story it’s this: your first step is deciding that your health is a priority, this will make you feel empowered. Today I am another woman. I am happy, full of energy, and doing things that I never imagined I could do. Thanks to Unicity.
