What a difference real nutrition can make in someone’s life. Read this incredible testimony and how the powerful nutrients in Zija helped to change Mesti’s life. Give the body what it needs and it is amazing to see how it can respond and self correct in many areas. Got Zija?
My name is Mesti Richards I am 36 years old, I am a Registered Nurse. In June 2010 I began to have severe issues with my stomach, I had been having problems for years prior but this became severe. I had such severe pain on eating that I just couldn’t really eat. I lost a tremendous amount of weight and I was fatigued all the time just didn’t know why. I had been through every test imaginable, I had an EGD which had shown erosion in my esophagus, a swollen, inflamed stomach and all three segments of my duodenum was swollen, inflamed. However wasn’t sure why this looked the way it did, thankfully there were no cancer and no h. pylori present. Sept. 23, 2010 I was hospitalized with a bowel blockage which was thankfully resolved without surgery; how-ever I was diagnosed during that hospital stay with Gastroparesis, which is stomach paralysis. This means my stomach doesn’t break down food, what goes into my stomach just sits there. The pancreas and liver know the food is there and builds up enzymes to digest the food, but since the food does-n’t leave the stomach in a normal fashion the enzymes release anyway with nothing there to digest but the intestine. However the food goes into my stom-ach is how it tries to go through the intestine when it does gradually seep out of the stomach into the intestine. Now I have a malabsorption problem, with Gas-troparesis my body doesn’t absorb nutrients like a normal body does which leads to malnutrition. I have been told that my good days will be bad and my bad days will be really bad. Many people with this disease end up on perma-nent physical disability. After all that my eyesight had been coming and going for months also until first of October it went all together, I found out my cor-neas were damaged in both eyes and what I could see it looked like I was look-ing through a dense fog all the time, went to a Corneal Specialist, he sent me to a Neuro Ophthalmologist which gave me a diagnosis of Optic Neuropathy (stroke in both optic nerves). Around the first part of December I was so weak, felt so bad, and hurt so bad that I was miserable, I was able to get from my bed to the couch, beg my kids to get ready for school and the go back to bed again. I was only able to do what was necessary. I would go to church on Sunday be-cause I am the Worship leader and church and my relationship with God is the most important thing in my life, but I would make it to church come home and either go to bed or lay on the couch. I was miserable and my kids were miserable and I had to do something to get better. I’ve not been a true believer in the all natural, I’m a nurse and I believe in medications, so I was skeptical at first but I was at the point I was willing to try anything!!! Long story short, by the fourth day I knew I didn’t want to wake up without it the next day, so I called my sponsor Kelly & Brandon Cooper and they came to sign me up, my Dad saw such a difference in just four days that he helped me get it until I get well enough to get back to work!!! I have been on Zija just over 3 weeks and every day I get up I am amazed at how much better I feel than the day before!!! My eyes are healing and my vision is gradually getting better, which is major because they were talk-ing about possible corneal transplants, I just can’t describe in words how I feel, the people who knew me and saw me before Zija and when they see me now they are truly amazed and find themselves wanting to try it just after visibly seeing what it has done for me in just a very short period of time!!! I’m so excited about this product and I want to share this with everyone I can!!! Since I am continually getting better, this testimony will be ongoing because I was also diagnosed with Hypothyroidism at the age of 22 which led to Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis (autoimmune thyroid disease which is worse they just hypothyroid because it can cause other problems) Fibromyalgia and IBS. The pain I was experiencing from Fibromyalgia is pretty much nonexistent and if it was there I don’t know it anymore. YAY!!! That is significant because I can’t remember a time since I was 17 years old that I didn’t feel pain on a daily basis. I was also not sleeping which I am sure was related to the pain and was taking prescription sleeping pills, now I sleep like a baby and when I wake up I feel great and refreshed! I take no sleeping pills now because I don’t need them and I don’t have that drug down feeling when I wake up that I was feeling with the sleeping pills. Like I said earlier I will keep this testimony ongoing since I’m getting better on a daily basis!
