In January 2013, I was diagnosed with remitting-recurring multiple sclerosis, a chronic, typically progressive disease that damages nerve-cell sheaths in the brain and spinal cord. My symptoms included vision impairment, balance issues and numbness in my legs and hands.
I have always lived a healthy lifestyle and am an aerial silk acrobat, which demands peak athletic ability and stamina. My diet has been mostly vegetarian. This lifelong commitment to health made my diagnosis so hard to understand.
During the five years I was on MS medication, I battled bronchitis at least four times a year and lost my voice, which impacted my ability as a full-time, Christian radio DJ.
I also developed basal cell carcinoma near my eye. My doctor speculated it could be a result of a suppressed immune system brought on by the MS therapies. So, I was concerned not only about this terrible disease but also side effects of the medications.
My mom and I had been praying for guidance. Around that time, an odd thing happened. My medication delivery was delayed, so I had to do without it. Then I happened to see Chairman’s Club Director Michelle Long in Walmart one day. I had known her mom, Janet Pauly, and how BarleyLife had helped her. Michelle and I talked about BarleyLife, and I decided to try it to support my immune system. My medications had yet to arrive.
Fast forward seven months when I had a routine MRI in July 2018. I was really nervous about the follow-up appointment with my neurologist primarily because I never went back on my meds. Some doctors won’t see patients who don’t take the prescription medications. To be clear, I am certainly not advocating that people should go off prescription medications without checking with their health care professional.
My neurologist did NOT drop me as a patient. In fact, he said I had above average brain tissue with no new brain lesions and asked me what I had been doing. I mentioned taking concentrated nutrition from a whole-food juice powder as well as eating mostly vegan, avoiding sugar and enriched-bleached flour, drinking lots of water and getting plenty of sleep. I also described my acrobatic routines and many other cardio activities.
Being so impressed, my doctor told me to continue this lifestyle and asked permission to share my story as an alternative to conventional MS therapies/medications. I was thrilled, relieved and so thankful to the Lord for answered prayers.
I give all the credit and glory to God when I say that I have not had another MS episode since 2012. I believe that BarleyLife along with a healthy lifestyle is critical and that exercise is as important as nutrition. I cannot say definitively that BarleyLife is helping to manage my MS symptoms, especially since I was symptom-free for five years before taking it.
Since starting BarleyLife, however, my overall health has improved. I sleep better, have more energy and no longer have menstrual cramps. I love my BarleyLife and crave it all day!
My journey with AIM is just beginning. I continue to enjoy sharing BarleyLife and other AIM products with others and seeing the positive health benefits that result.
