A few years ago I was living the normal life of a young man – eating anything, partying, working hard and burning the candle at both ends. All was well until 2014. Years of nutritional neglect put me in a position where I had to make serious lifestyle changes, or never be myself again.
I had developed a severe digestive condition. My intestinal tract had become so unbalanced and inflamed it started to allow undigested food into my bloodstream. This is bad. The real problem was that many foods resemble body tissue on a molecular level. So, not only did my immune system react to food, it began attacking my own body.
It’s very difficult to describe how this made me feel. Symptoms changed constantly and each day was a struggle. Sometimes I would feel physical pain, other times I would have no energy, and perhaps the scariest, were days when I could not think or remember basic things. The only thing that remained consistent was fatigue and my loss of zest.
Visits to five different doctors left me with no answers. I was getting desperate. Perhaps the hardest part was the feeling of isolation. I could no longer socialise, play sports, or hold in-depth conversations. It’s a lonely place; especially when those closest to you don’t understand how you feel. I was a prisoner in my own body.
Although dampened, my flame was not out. I really believed that there was a fix. I spent every spare moment researching nutrition and its effect on the human body. Over the course of 8 months, I experimented with the foods I ate and listened to my body. I consulted with a naturopath for guidance. Together, we designed a protocol based on clean foods and Chinese herbal medicine. We began rebuilding my body from the bottom up.
After 12 dark months, I started my healing protocol and saw progression with each passing week. Symptoms dropped off one by one and I slowly became “me”, again. As I sit here writing this, I am 8 months in and have not felt better.
If there’s one thing I learned, it was the importance of nutrition and lifestyle for health and well-being. While my case may be extreme, I want to serve as the “canary in the coalmine” for others. Health is a fine line that can easily be crossed.
That’s why I founded Purgo Tea. To provide a way for people to safely reset their body without going to extremes like fasting or using strong laxatives. It's important cleanse your body using safe, natural ingredients and reap the rewards of a healthy lifestyle. This is not a quick fix. It's a promise to yourself to eat right, be active, and sip on nature's most powerful detoxifying herbs.
I know that Purgo Tea works because the program is based on the healing protocol that helped me. It has also helped many of our drinkers to achieve their health goals. It was designed to work well for everyone - even for those with sensitive stomachs.
