I’m a 57 year old male who had accepted the reality of getting older. As I had been taught my entire life, I believed the aching joints, lethargy, intestinal issues and foggy headedness were a part of the aging process. Nobody was going to convince me otherwise.
But my sister certainly tried. When I would see her a couple of times a year, she would try to convince me I could address the issues I associated with aging without resorting to harsh pharmaceuticals. To say I was skeptical would be an understatement; I wasn’t buying any of it. I mocked those practitioners of ‘alternative treatment’ methods and viewed them as “snake oil salesmen” who had bought into a false hope. I was too smart to be taken in.
A few months ago, I received a package from my sister. Inside was a Nutritional DNA test kit. Good grief!! Why wouldn’t she give it a rest? I was getting a little irritated but decided to send off the sample just to make her stop. Certainly the results would show there was absolutely nothing wrong with me that could not be attributed to the normal aging process.
Two weeks pass and I received the DNA test results and a phone call from a nutritional practitioner named Piper Gibson, obviously at the request of my sister. Ms. Gibson goes through the test results with me and explains where I have “broken” genes. I’m thinking “Ya right, I’m sure this is what they tell everybody. I bet I have perfect genes”. Ms. Gibson goes on to say that with the correct nutritional supplements she believed I could lessen or alleviate the problems I associated with aging. As if she can read my thoughts, Ms. Gibson tells me not to believe the ‘normal aging’ myth. When the call ends, I am not one inch closer to being a ‘believer’.
The next week in the mail I receive a box of vitamins and supplements. My sister is at it again! Ms. Gibson has sent me a dosage schedule and calls to explain it. I formulate my new plan. I’ll take the supplements as directed and at the end of the month, I can call my sister, honestly tell her that I have followed the prescription, thank her for the concern, and report no improvement. Then maybe she will stop!
So much for my plan. Day by day, I’m feeling better. My intestinal problems have disappeared. I’m sleeping longer and wake up alert. I have more energy throughout the day. My joints don’t ache. And best of all, I have clear and sharp thought. As much as I HATE being wrong, much less admitting it, the results are impossible to overcome.
Ms. Gibson has been there every step of the way. From dietary advise to alternatives for harsh pharmaceuticals, Piper has been a trusted and knowledgeable advisor. Through her results, she has PROVEN to me, someone who has fought hard NOT to believe, that I didn’t have to accept the “I’m just getting old” ideas of the past. It’s not often you can say that someone has made a dramatic improvement in your quality of life but Ms. Gibson has certainly done so in mine. Thank you Piper, well done!
