Arborvitae Health and Wellbeing Supplement

I’m introducing you to a new health supplement today. All about Arborvitae, and how it has helped improve my health.

Firstly, let me give you a little glimpse into me, and why I was so excited about the opportunity to try Arborvitae.

Frocktober-Day-21

I’ve had a fairly chequered health history – let’s just say that if I was a horse, I’d be a glue stick by now!  I have an autoimmune disease which gives me rheumatoid arthritis-like symptoms.  I have PMDD – PMS on crack.  I have chronic oedema – water retention from hell.  I have food allergies and sensitivities, as well as drug allergies.  I have PCOS and needed IVF to conceive my gorgeous Boyo.

Every winter, my life is ruled by sinusitis.  Year round, I try to avoid inflammatory foods as much as possible.  That means I eat gluten free, don’t drink very much alcohol and avoid caffeine, in an effort to reduce my body’s inflammation levels.  Yeah, you are all so jealous right now, huh?

One of the side effects of PCOS is a predisposition for diabetes – plus I have family history of the condition.  I am currently pre-diabetic, which means I have to be super careful about what and how I eat.

Whilst I’m not averse to taking medication, I’m also a strong believer in backing it up with health and nutrition.  I am a sceptic when it comes to woo woo things like homeopathy, but I’m totally down with vitamin and plant supplements.  Why? Because it’s worked for me in the past.

When I was first diagnosed with my autoimmune disease, I asked my rheumatologist what foodstuffs he suggested avoiding or consuming to help with my condition.  He was politely sceptical and told me there was no evidence, but that if it made me feel better, then go right ahead.

After six months of seeing a naturopathic dietician, as well as taking the medicine he prescribed, he was blown away by the improvement in my condition. So much so that he, the original sceptic, started suggesting that his patients talk to a good naturopathic dietician.

Although my autoimmune disease is officially in remission, I still suffer from the side effects.  Eight years of chronic illness, where my exercise ability was severely limited, have also claimed a toll on my strength and stamina.

When I was offered the opportunity to review a new health natural plant extract supplement, I leapt at the opportunity.  Hello Arborvitae!  Arborvitae contains natural plant extracts that assist with inflammation, support the immune system, are a potent anti-oxidant and can normalise blood glucose levels in healthy individuals.

My experience with Arborvitae

As I have inflammation in my body already, I am taking Arborvitae twice a day.  One of the things I really don’t like about taking health supplements is swallowing loads of pills.  They’re often enormous, and frequently have an unpleasant taste.  Pleased to report that Arborvitae has a pleasantly fruity taste with a herbal undertone.  I take mine like a badass – in a shot glass!

My inflammation levels are also driven by my cycle, so I was particularly interested to see if Arborvitae made a difference.  On a sample size of one, being me, I compared my last two cycles.  Without getting into TMI territory, the inflammation that usually arrives and gives me very swollen joints was significantly reduced.  Let’s put it this way – I didn’t have to walk like a robotic cowboy. I’m calling that a win!

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to notice a huge difference in my energy levels, as around the time I started taking Arborvitae, I came down with a hideous case of sinusitis.  It’s taken me a few weeks to recover.  I hasten to add that this is directly attributable to me going on holiday to Far North Queensland.  Nothing to do with the product at all.

Sadly, the combination of air conditioned accommodation and high humidity conditions outside are the perfect cocktail for a sinus infection. I get sick every time I go on holiday because of this!  Mind you, if you have to be sick, a poolside sunlounger isn’t a bad place to recover, don’t you think?

To sum it up, I’m really pleased I got the opportunity to discover Arborvitae, and I’m thrilled to get to introduce it to you. It is a great way to increase my general wellbeing, reduce my inflammation and feel like a badass twice a day with my shot of Arborvitae!

    As someone who is currently undergoing a series of tests to figure out just what exactly is “wrong” with me, I’m embracing both natural and conventional medicine to help me find answers. Having said that, I’m far more open to natural remedies to give my body the helping hand it needs in a gentle way.ReplyCancel

    Living with chronic fatigue syndrome for more than two decades, I’m always keen to try something natural that might help my energy and immune system. I really struggle with winter viruses, as my immune system doesn’t respond like other people and I end up having a lot of time off work, which just adds to the stress of living with a chronic condition!ReplyCancel
