Lisa Clark Use To Suffer From Fibromyalgia Pain

In Lisas words..

In 1992 I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia as I started having pains all over my body. Achy, and tired all the time. As the years went on with my new diagnosis the pains got worse and the fatigue got bad.

My Dr tried many medications and new medications came out and clinical trials to try and get my pain under control, yet nothing worked, and I hated feeling “drugged” all the time. I even… tried acupuncture, and massage therapy was excruciatingly painful. And well hypnosis didn’t work either.

In 2004 I started using a forearm crutch to assist me in walking. This was devastating because I used to be a competitive long distance swimmer and was so active all the time. And now I couldn’t even play with my kids.

There are some that say that surgery exacerbates fibromyalgia and I have had seven since 1999- 2009, and in 2007 I humbled myself and sat myself in a wheelchair for the days that the forearm crutch couldn’t help me because I couldn’t even stand up or sit down or have the strength to grasp the crutch. I used to crawl up and down the stairs.

In 2009 I convinced myself there had to be something out there that could help and all the research said was exercise.. and I thought how can I when I can barely walk on most days.

In February of 2010 I started a workout program and my coach suggested that I start drinking a shake called Shakeology. It would give me energy and help me loose weight and it had all this good nutrition. I said ok.. can’t hurt right?

Never did I ever imagine that my energy did come back! I was able to do more and longer workouts and didn’t have to rest 2-4 days in agony from working out.

But my number one dream and prayer had happened.. one day and I can’t remember when it happened… I woke up without a single ounce of pain! This was one of the single most happiest moments of my life! And since I started drinking Shakeology I have stopped taking all medication. No more pain medications, my mood was better, my energy was incredible. And NO FLAIR UPS!

In the fall of 2010 my boys who were entering 9th grade, and were on the cross country team in school… and I.. yes I was the assistant coach of Boys Cross Country!!. It wasn’t that long ago that I was in a wheelchair and I was outside everyday in all of the nasty fall weather of Central New York running!

Today I can play with my kids and I am an any day soon to be grandma.. I can run in the fields, and on the roads of the countryside, and today I workout with high impact cardio workouts and muscle building.. and do 5 sets of 10 pullups.

The nutrition and the quality of the shakes is undeniable and unsurpassed. And everyday I am blessed for the quality of life I have now… and its all because I drink Shakeology .. it literally has been life changing. And to think where I would be if I never tried it…. still in pain 🙁
