I started this journey a few years ago when I realised that I wanted to change my life and my eating habits in the hope to lose weight and feel better about myself. The initial push for me was when I was first diagnosed with adult asthma at the age of 27, by my GP who put me on a course of medication that never cured or even helped with my intense coughing that I suffered from. As a child I never had asthma, but since it was something that a few of my relatives suffered from I assumed that my GP was correct, yet I still could not get rid of the horrible coughing that would occur and cause me to have little to no sleep every night.
After talking to a few people I thought that maybe my problem was not asthma related, maybe I was allergic to certain foods, as my now husband then boyfriend suggested that I coughed the most after I ate dairy, so maybe I should check if I was allergic to it. So began the search for the best specialist in Cape Town who would tell me what was wrong with me! All excited to find out what food allergies I assumed I must have, I set out for my appointment. After a few tests, the specialist told me that I had a slight allergy to dust and grass but no food allergies to speak off. He then proceeded to tell me that I must have a loose valve in my throat that causes stomach acid to come up my throat and cause me to cough continuously. He prescribed me with a very strong steroid which was meant to make my valve stronger but suggested that I continue to take the medication for my asthma just to be on the safe side. I left the Specialist feeling more confused but hopeful that his diagnose was correct and I could finally be rid of my awful cough, which in some cases caused me to throw up after dinner and ruin my sleep.
Months later with a whole bunch of prescriptions to various toxic pharmaceuticals I realised that none of it was helpful, I felt more uncomfortable with my digestion than ever before and my coughing had gotten worse, causing me to throw up randomly, I also had picked up a substantial amount of weight and I was at the heaviest at this period of my life. I knew something was wrong with me, but no doctor could help me, I researched herbal weight loss products before and was not satisfied with what was on the market, nothing explained how and what the product contained to help counter weight gain or help with weight loss. My body was so messed up from all the meds that no matter how much vitamins and herbal products I took the effect was minimal as my digestive system was so out of sink and not working that nothing I did help me. No diets, counting calories, watching what I ate even stopping alcohol was not doing much for me. I needed a detox, a serious one, something that was going to help me clean out my system and kick start my metabolism.
When I first heard about this amazing seed, that helped people lose large amounts of weight without having to diet or exercise, I was of course skeptical. Please, I thought, sure sure, why have I not heard of this before if it is such a miracle worker? I did some research and read up on the properties of Nuez de la India, people in South America had been using this for centuries, and it was all natural with a promise to detox and cleanse my body of all the awful toxin that I willing had put into my body, my interest was peaked. So began my journey to weight loss, I was never considered a small person, all my life I was always told I was fat, so my expectation was to hopefully lose 10kgs that would make me feel so much better about myself! It was also around this time that I was newly engaged and had a wedding to plan and a dress to fit into, so I had a lot of work to do and my no sugar, no carb and no alcohol approach had only helped me lose 2kgs in about 4 months. I was desperate and starting to feel helpless with dieting and working out.
Fast forward to present day, since I started my weight loss journey with Nuez de la India I have lost 30kgs and many centimetres, I no longer need or use any of the medication I was once on and only suffer from coughing when I have a cold. I realised modern life is difficult enough that we all need a little help when it comes to losing a few kilograms or centimetres.
