Before founding CN, my health was a train wreck.
At 210 pounds, I had very low energy, frequent depression, and trouble motivating myself to get daily exercise.
On top of all this, I had not been to the doctor in over 15 years and just accepted where I was.
When I turned 40, I was in need of a full nutritional ‘tune-up’. Longevity now became a goal of mine. I had not ever given serious thought to longevity before 40, and now with longevity and abundant energy as a goal, I discovered I had many health upgrades my body needed in order to find my optimum.
I call CompleteNutra a Mom-inspired company for a couple reasons. First, my mom always told me to take my vitamins because she knew something I didn’t yet. She knew they were building blocks to keep my body strong. And Second, because she always told me I could do anything and that I would make a big difference in the world… and I believed her… I also realized that being a mom is a thankless job for so many years until we all realize that we should be thanking our moms for all the unacknowledged sacrifices they continually give to keep us healthy safe and strong.
So I decided to begin thanking my mom instead of groaning every time she wanted me to take my vitamins… Thanks Mom, I love you!
As a single guy with life to live and a positive impact still meant to make on the world, I finally said “enough is enough!” and began my journey to heal myself because this is the only body I get! And it wants to heaI if I can learn to give it the proper nutrition to do so.
After extensive research and partnering with Dr. Jessie Keener, a Naturopath Physician, mom and nutrition expert, I discovered a few of the REAL reasons for my health issues:
- I had Leaky Gut and needed to heal my gut
- I had a fatty liver with a viral load and needed to heal my liver
- I constantly craved processed foods and sugar
- My brain felt like I was “in a fog” and low energy was the norm
- I had become insulin resistant and needed to increase my insulin sensitivity again
- I gained too much weight and was habitually eating poorly
- I could not lose weight, no matter what diet program I tried
- I was not exercising enough to cleanse my lymph and detoxify myself
It turns out that years of eating the Standard American diet (SAD), and taking over-the-counter pain medications, eating too much processed sugar and grains, and being unaware of how much antibiotics I was consuming on a daily basis because of all the conventionally farmed and processed meat I was eating.
