About Me

Are you into wellness? Fitness? Living a more natural lifestyle? Then this site is for YOU!

Hello and welcome! My name is Andrea and I’m a wife, a momma of two and a woman on a journey to better my health, my fitness and the life of my family.

My wellness journey has really been aimed at feeling as good as I felt before I had kids. That was 2012. And it’s been a long road. Being what I call “forever pregnant and nursing” with 2 kids who are 20 months apart plus 9 months of pregnancy x2. As resilient as I thought my body might be at only 30, I knew that by being back at my pre pregnancy weight, getting more than decent sleep, having a very active lifestyle, eating mostly healthy (come on who doesn’t go back for seconds sometimes?!) and exercising regularly… I should not feel this bad!

After a horrendous year and a half dealing with Mirena and the insane aftermath that some may known as the “Mirena Crash” (no one ever tells you about it, it’s real, and you can read about here) As well as a few courses of antibiotics (Flagyl and Diflucan) that utterly destroyed me (because of Mirena). I’d finally hit rock bottom and was at the point of seeking MORE medical help because I didn’t know if I could really cope anymore.  I had anxiety, dizziness, massive brain fog, PMDD symptoms and extreme fatigue — all caused by out of wack hormones, thanks Mirena. But being strong willed and more holistically leaning for my personal health, I wanted to handle it MY WAY first if I could.

I’d seen a customer of mine posting daily about how Plexus had helped her gut health which in turn helped so many other areas of her life and I just had a hunch. A voice inside of me had been telling me for weeks, “Maybe you need to try this” …

So I jumped in. Within the first full week I noticed a remarkable difference in my overall emotional balance. I was no longer swingy and all over the place. Then a week after adding the ProBio5 probiotic and BioCleanse I could actually say I felt almost completely back to my old self and almost back to my 2012 pre-baby self!! Every day I still can’t believe it was that easy for me, and every day I continue to work towards my health goals now that I feel back on track.

Since being on Plexus I haven’t had any of my Mirena Crash symptoms. I never took my gut health into account when trying to find ways to improve my health and diminish my Mirena Crash symptoms because it simply never occurred to me. After researching the positive effects of magnesium on mental health as well as the gut-brain connection I was surprised, and then not surprised at all that Plexus has helped so much and that it was really as simple for me as gut health.

So here I am on this journey and I’m so excited to share it with you! I hope that this site and my story can help shed some light on what poor gut health can be doing to your body and that there is a away to get it back on track and make you feel awesome!
