I finally purchased the NutriBullet after watching the infomercial for almost six months, and it has been the best investment I've ever made. I'm 44 years old, and ever since I started my cycle at the ripe old age of 13, I have always had extremely painful periods with heavy bleeding. Over the past few years, my period has been so unbearable that I was considering having surgery because I thought that I had fibroids. My symptoms consisted of not only the heavy bleeding, but terrible cramping, nausea, headaches, lower back pain and horrible mood swings. I felt like the girl from The Exorcist the five days I was on my period, and if I drank anything cold, the pain would be excruciating. Going out was not an option and my life during these five days were put on hold because I didn’t know if I would have an “accident” or just not feel well.
All of that changed when I got my NutriBullet. I received my Nutribullet in October 2012, about three weeks before my cycle started. However, I didn’t purchase the NutriBullet for that purpose. I wanted to have better health and find a way to drink my nutrients instead of taking a pill for my type 2 diabetes. The side effect was how great I felt on my period!
The first day of my cycle was normal with the usual pains and discomfort. But on my third day, I realized that my cycle was not very heavy at all. The real kicker was waking up at my usual 3:00 am ready to take a pain reliever and feeling no cramping, pain, nothing! The last two days of my period was as if I didn’t have it, and I actually forgot that I was still on because my mood was great - no headaches, back pain, or staying in the house. I felt great!
The next month, I didn’t even know it was here because I had no cramping, back pain, or any of the normal painful symptoms I have had over the past 30 years! I was able to go out and enjoy myself and not feel the normal pains of having my cycle affect my entire life.
This month, I noticed that I was in so much pain the day my cycle was to start because my lower back was killing me like I never felt before. The difference this month? I went an entire week without one of my NutriBullet drinks and felt the effects immediately. The good thing about the NutriBullet program? Once, I felt that pain, I dragged myself to the store for my ingredients and made up a batch to drink that morning and throughout the day. Within one day, I had no more cramps and back pain, and I was able to function as I had the previous months when I was drinking my NutriBullet green drinks religiously.
I was so excited about my results from my monthly cycle each month that I forgot to tell you that some of the other results I've been having. They are as follows:
- Lost 10 lbs without exercise
- Lost five inches around my stomach
- No joint pain! For those of you who have old injuries like me and you have pain in the area from time to time, all of that is gone!
I love my NutriBullet and I have not stopped eating my favorites, but I just use the 80/20 rule, in which I make sure that I eat right 80 percent of the time. I get to enjoy my sweets and good food, but I just don’t make it my main staple food.
I hope this helps you as it continues to help me!
