Last August, I was very excited to be the starting 197-pound wrestler for ASU. Unfortunately, my plans came to a screeching halt when I was devastatingly diagnosed with cancer during the first week of the fall semester.
Cancer, surgery and chemotherapy took me off of the wrestling mat and out of the classroom. Of course, as a 20-year-old physically-fit athlete, I was completely surprised to learn that I had cancer. I was intensely working out for hours each day and wrestling with the big boys and, the next day, I was literally being rushed into surgery to remove the cancer that was growing in my body. The unexpected surgery was bad enough, but for an athlete, the intensive regimen of chemotherapy was even worse to endure.
As an athlete engaged in the very intense and highly competitive sport of college wrestling, having a healthy body means everything. Chemotherapy is incredibly brutal and wreaks havoc on every part of the human body. The last seven months have been incredibly hard for me, as I have had to watch my physically-fit body be diminished by the effects of cancer and the chemotherapy.
I am a very determined and tenacious person and my goal is to recover my health and my athletic abilities and make it back to the competitive wrestling mat. In addition to training and working out, I knew I seriously needed a way to optimize my nutritional intake to help me both recover from the effects of cancer and chemotherapy and to build back my athletic physique. This is where the NutriBullet has really, really helped me get the most out of my food.
With the NutriBullet, I am easily able to ingest the high quantity of fruits, vegetable and nutritional boosts that I need to recover and to build back my body. I have always been a meat and potatoes kind of guy, and I have basically had an aversion to anything that looked too healthy. So, getting in enough fruits and vegetables has always been a big problem for me. But, knowing how important they are to fighting cancer and staying healthy, I knew I needed to make a change.
At first, I was really hesitant to drink a green or fruit smoothie, but after I discovered how good the NutriBullet smoothies are, how easy they are to make, and how they greatly improve my overall health and disposition, I began making the NutriBullet a part of my daily routine.
Now, after nearly a month of using the NutriBullet, I am a big, big believer in the tremendous health benefits that NutriBullet smoothies provide. I am really thankful that I found this product, and I am so grateful that I will be able to use it on a daily basis to restore my health. Without the NutriBullet, there is no way I'd be able to accomplish my goals of recovering my health and getting back on the wrestling mat. I just want you and the company to know much I really appreciate this product. I would be more than happy to share my positive experience with others that are looking to restore their health and well-being.
