My Plexus Story

Posting a little update here –

I do still love Plexus products! Here’s a quick update as to which products I currently use and why. I do not drink the Slim pink drink or Lean shakes now because I’ve been strict keto since July 2018 and I have the energy I need from this way of eating (WOE).

I do continue to promote all Plexus products ( website ) and I continue to take the following daily:

Probio 5 – gut-health (2 at bedtime daily)

BioCleanse – magnesium/calcium – helps my legs not be restless at night (2 at breakfast)

Joyōme – day/night microbiome activating lotion for my face – SO good! – “two-step system that reverses the visible signs of aging”.

I didn’t want to replace the following post (published in 2016) – it’s how I began with Plexus (almost 4 years ago!), the changes I saw and the products I used. Feel free to message me if you’d like more information. I hope my journey inspires you to take control of your health and take steps to be a happier, healthier YOU!

I wanted to share a little bit about myself, some health issues I’ve dealt with, and how some great supplements have helped me to achieve better health since Sept 2015. I’ll also talk about the products I would recommend to friends/family and anyone who is need of better mental and physical health! If any of my story hits home with you, please continue reading…and contact me if you’d like to chat, need some encouragement, a friend or just a listening ear 🙂

Since graduating high school and getting married (1994), I have dealt with migraines, a blood disorder, an autoimmune disorder, depression, anxiety…just to name a few! After I had a miscarriage early on in our marriage, I became very depressed, but tried to hide the sadness and depression from everyone. We became pregnant again in early 2000 and I was fortunate to find a caring Dr who took the time to listen to me, look at my medical history and order the right tests…I was diagnosed with AntiPhospholipid Syndrome (APS) and also a genetic mutation MTHFR c677t. There wasn’t much information on the genetic mutation at the time, but with many many prayers and the help of a high risk OB, (and heparin shots 2x’s a day), we had a beautiful baby girl in Jan 2001. I still had trouble with depression and anxiety but didn’t talk to anyone about it. This went on for many years, about 12 to be exact! I hid my problems and put on a fake smile for my friends and family, but I was a mental/emotional mess inside! I finally hit rock bottom about 3 years ago, and began antidepressants. Ugh! They are horrible (at least for me personally)…I just wanted to sleep all day, I felt life was slipping away, days and then weeks were just a blur and slipping by so quickly. I let that continue for awhile and then I found Plexus…ok, actually I had been following a blog and watching my now friend and mentor, as she blogged about how Plexus was changing her life for the better. This past year I’ve learned so much about the genetic mutation I have, and how some supplements and even enriched foods can be harmful to my body. That’s another long story…It’s a learning process but I’m thankful that I’ve found the right supplements that have now worked for me for over a year!!

…I do need to add this statement before I continue my story, because although these products have helped me and my personal health issues…Disclaimer: These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. 

So here’s my Plexus story which began Sept 2015… I began taking Plexus TriPlex. In hindsight, I wish I’d started the TriPlex sooner! Honestly I was skeptical, but Plexus has a 60 day money back guarantee, so I finally ordered it.

So what is Plexus?? The TriPlex consists of Slim, BioCleanse and ProBio5.

Here’s how I started…and this is what worked for me. I saw and felt results (mental fog was gone, no feelings of anxiety or depression) in 3 days and have continued to get healthy by being consistent with the supplements.
(Day 1) 2 ProBio5 at bedtime
(Day 2) 1 Slim packet mixed with 12 oz water, 20 minutes before eating a protein rich breakfast, 2 ProBio5 at bedtime
(Day 3) 1 Slim packet mixed with 12 oz water, 20 minutes before eating a protein rich breakfast, 2 BioCleanse with breakfast, 2 ProBio5 at bedtime
(Day 4-7) 1 Slim packet, 2 BioCleanse with breakfast, 2 ProBio5 at bedtime
The only other changes I made to the above schedule was that during week 2, I took 3 ProBio5 at bedtime…week 3 I took 4 Probio5 at bedtime…week 4 I took 3 ProBio5 at bedtime and from then on I have maintained my 2 ProBio5 at bedtime.  I took the ProBio5 in this regimen as to not have detox side effects. I didn’t want to shock my body, I wanted to detox (get rid of the Candida, and heal the gut) as naturally as possible.
So what exactly do these products do?
ProBio5 is AMAZING. Not only is it such a great Probiotic, it also contains an anti-fungal. This helps to kill candida overgrowth!
The Biocleanse is an oxygenator, absorber, eliminator. It helps break up toxins and then helps your body eliminate the toxins instead of your body storing them in fat. Your body knows to pull the toxins away from vital organs which is why they are stored in fat. The Biocleanse helps eliminate them! This is KEY to weightloss for those who are interested in losing weight. WEIGHT is not the problem, WASTE is the problem!!
Plexus Slim is the BEST tool to help curb sugar cravings. I struggled with sugar cravings and snacking. Plexus Slim is a WONDERFUL tool to help you have the willpower to make some serious nutritional changes. Slim can also help maintain blood sugar so you aren’t spiking and crashing. Like I said above, I had the 2pm crash everyday. By helping you slowly, gently wean off of sugar, it is also helping you combat candida. I now make healthier food/drink choices. Where I craved breads, soda’s, candy bars, chocolate, etc. before, I now rarely have a craving for those things and instead I really love to eat vegetables, fruits and healthier options. I don’t feel deprived. I’m not on a diet.
This is NOT a quick fix but oh my goodness have I seen results from it! After about 4 weeks of being consistent with Plexus, I realized I hadn’t had a migraine in a couple of weeks!, I was less stressed, less cravings, no more 2pm crash…and I was a happier person.That in itself was a HUGE blessing! And I’m continuing to see results, and not only in my physical and mental health, but because I’m healthier, my relationship with my family has greatly improved!! I can also say, since implementing all three Plexus products, my energy level has definitely increased!
I signed up to be a Plexus Ambassador in October 2015 because I already saw the difference it made in my health and I wanted to get the products at wholesale instead of retail prices. I paid $34.95/year to get my products at wholesale…I make commission off the products I purchase, and products I sell as well. 
Now I want to talk about why Plexus works so well. Do you know the common denominator for a lot of the symptoms that are plaguing many of you and those around you? …
Bloating, Mood Swings, Chronic fatigue, Strong sugar cravings, Migraines, Food sensitivities, IBS, Constipation, Yeast Infections, Depression, Anxiety, Joint Pain, Sinusitis, Seasonal Allergies, Food Sensitivities, Skin Rash, Insomnia, Bladder/kidney infections, Inability to concentrate, Blood Sugar Imbalance….
CANDIDA Overgrowth is the Common Denominator for the symptoms above! Candida is not the enemy. God put it in us for a purpose, but eating processed foods, the everyday toxins in our environment, stress and other factors create Candida OVERGROWTH. That is the enemy. There are also several other factors which lead to overgrowth. Here are just a few.. antibiotics (which kill the good and bad bacteria), oral birth control, weakened immune system, a high sugar diet, etc. Candida Overgrowth DEMANDS sugar!! (hence the sugary cravings) It is so very hard on your body when you try to eliminate sugar from your diet all together. Look at Plexus Triplex as a team (Slim, Probio5, Biocleanse), an amazing tool to eliminate Candida overgrowth. The slim enables you to make good food choices and helps you cut out sugar while maintaining a healthy blood sugar level. The Probio5, with anti fungal, helps kill the candida and the biocleanse helps you eliminate the toxins. Again, this is NOT a quick fix but you will slowly see inches, pounds and symptoms drop off.
So how much does it cost? All in all my Plexus products average around $100/month BUT since I am an Ambassador I am able to share my website and have people purchase from ME. This has enabled me to get my product free with a little extra cash left over. I am NOT a salesman. It’s not hard for me to share my experience with Plexus because it’s been such a life-changer for me personally, but I do sometimes hesitate for fear someone would feel pressured to make a purchase and that’s NOT what I want. It’s taken me a year to just sit down and write out MY story! I truly feel so great and my life has been so drastically changed for the better that I just want others to get healthy and feel this way too! I know how it feels to be so down that I didn’t want to live and I just couldn’t see a way out of the despair and anxiousness.
I feel I’ve been given a new lease on life and with that, I feel a responsibility to at least share my story with you. I would truly love to talk to you if you have questions or just need a friend to listen. I would love to share some other practical tips for you to help you achieve your health goals. I PROMISE not to pester or pressure you.
I would ask, that you pray, and then do as you are led.
SO… if you are interested in hearing more, in coming to an info meeting, or have any questions, I would LOVE to help and be of assistance!!
Here is my website for those who would like to browse the products.
I would also HIGHLY recommend XFactor vitamins, which are methylated (a huge help for me and for anyone with the MTHFR genetic mutation) …I take 2 with breakfast, and then MegaX  (plant based Omega vitamins), I take 1-2 at night and sleep soundly, waking up refreshed every morning.
Please contact me if I can be of help, lend an ear or hopefully be an encouragement to you in some way. 
Thank you for listening!

    Hi I found out just a few months ago that I have a double dose of the mthfr. I have a question if you could help me get on the right trac of living with this and understanding what’s best for me. I am learning about these vitamins and they sound like what I need. With the mega x should I take those instead or krill oil? If so why?


    • Life with Stef says:

      Im sorry for your diagnosis. I feel like there’s more and more information becoming available about MTHFR. I’ll help as much as I’m able! I’m not a professional or physician… but I personally like the MegaX because
      1) it’s Plant based, so no fishy taste.
      2) it’s all the omega vitamins in one pill
      3) I sleep soundly at night and there are other benefits that I feel come from these vitamins as well.
      I don’t know much about krill oil. I’ll need to research that. I’ll see what I can find out and get back to you. If you have any questions about recipes, certain ingredients and/or anything else that I can try to answer, please feel free to message me!
