No More Bronchitis, Flaky Skin or Tiredness: How ‘Being Savvy’ Changed My Life!

Saturday Success Story: Alice shares the impact that ‘Being Savvy’ made for her and her personal wellbeing!

For Alice, it always started the same way . . .

That scratchy SORE throat!
But for Alice, catching a cold or getting the flu also led to weeks and weeks of bronchial problems and mucous congestion.

It seemed to happen EVERY Winter!

In fact, sometimes it was so bad that they became really nasty at work – and would call her the ‘mucous-making-machine’!

That’s just mean!

Alice would ‘soldier on’ – thinking it was just something she had to deal with every Winter.

My Story: Overcoming Infertility, Chronic Fatigue, & Depression.

My Story: Overcoming Infertility, Chronic Fatigue, Depression. How the Savvy Team Helped Me Transform My Health!

One of the best things we discovered about the Savvy Team, was the extensive support received. I particularly loved the information I got as a result of the ongoing support, constant connection and feedback, I was able to adjust our program and actually take responsibility for my families health and wellbeing.

After enduring a range of hormonal imbalances as a teenager, and then being put on the Contraceptive Pill to supposedly ‘fix’ these, as the years went by my health deteriorated. I suffered from mild depression and finally debilitating chronic fatigue after a bout of glandular fever. Eventually, I discovered I was infertile and underwent three years of IVF with severe side-effects.

I don’t want to dwell on past history and old problems, but I guess the point to make from this – I THOUGHT I WAS NORMAL and so did the doctors I saw throughout my life to the age of 30.

I thought all of these problems were a normal part of being a woman and because I got no relief from talking to GPs about any of these issues (in fact, it took seeing a range of GPs and 3 months before the Glandular Fever was even diagnosed) I thought the only problem I had was in my head – and from various Doctor’s comments I think many of them thought so too.

I thought that all my sicknesses were ‘normal’ . . .

Thyroid Issues, HRT, Obesity, Depression all GONE: How ‘Being Savvy’ Changed My Life!

I was very thin as young girl, till I got married and went on the first contraceptive pill just 1 month before (at 19 ½ years). After 3 weeks honeymoon, I came back 1 stone (6 ½ kilos) heavier than I had ever been, and my body is only just beginning to recover, almost forty years later.

The Pill really mucked-up my system for rest of my life. Before then I had been on no medication whatsoever, and only ever had 1 illness in my whole life to that point. I kept putting on weight – and every child-birth added extra weight that I couldn’t budge.

I went on numerous diets and spent $10,000s on weight-loss programs – Jenny, Craig, Gloria Marshall, gyms, medically-prescribed diet pills, weight-loss groups, etc, over 30-40 years. You name it and I’ve probably done it. But I just kept putting on weight. When doing those programs and diets I could never lose more than 10k, and I always put it back on double, when I went off any diet. I’d like to share what happened when I came across the Savvy Team and their wellness programs. Read More
