I suffered from brain fog for years. It may sound like one of those weird, made-up ailments that people complain about, but it was real and life-altering for me.
Brain fog is hard to explain to people. They see you walking around and functioning pretty normally, but nothing is clear. It’s like having a head cold or being super tired just about every day. You move on with life, but you’re in a haze. I’ve had it as long as I can remember. In fact, I can’t remember when I didn’t have it.
Last year, I finally had enough of walking through my life in a fog. I went to my primary care doctor, and he ordered bloodwork to figure out what was going on. But the results showed that, other than a vitamin D deficiency, everything looked normal, and he sent me on my way. That’s when Amy told me about Glo Derma’s Wellness 360 program and the SpectraCell micronutrient testing. She explained that the testing looked for deficiencies in vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, and amino acids within our white blood cells. Then, once they identified what the body needs, the medical staff at Glo Derma would customize vitamin drips to address them. Amy explained that she takes all the data and collaborates with experts around the country and consults with the medical director to formulate a customized plan, which includes Thorne supplements, drips, and boosters to get the best possible results.
I figured I’d try it—I had nothing to lose. My testing showed I was lacking a ton of nutrients; most importantly I was lacking biotin and had very low blood sugar. With all that information, the pieces started coming together. Biotin is a B vitamin that helps your body convert food into energy, and it’s important for the health of your hair, skin, and nails. I used to have curly, thick long hair, but I had been losing hair for quite a while. I was regularly getting shaky and hungry, and the low glucose levels helped me understand what was happening to me.
Then I started the drips at Glo Derma. And, of course, the first thing I noticed is that the brain fog went away. But that wasn’t all. I had more stamina at the gym, and I could recover faster. My hair and nails started to grow strong and thick. My skin was clearer. I had more energy.
In addition to the drips, the staff at Glo Derma helped me with my diet, and now I know I have to eat about every hour and a half to keep my blood sugar in check. I order smoothies from them twice a week. And, honestly, I’ve never felt better. I get drips every two weeks, regular Mic B shots (which I’ve tried other places but without good results), and then I do the Trifecta with the glutathione push. In June, it will be a year since I started the Wellness 360 program, and I’ll have the micronutrient testing done again. And I honestly can’t wait because I know what the results will be. I’ve never felt clearer or healthier, and now I understand how much that impacts my overall happiness.
Understanding my body has been a game-changer, and giving it what it needs to perform every day brought new energy and joy to my life in every possible way.
