My name is Lena and I have been a Lupus patient since 2008. Ever since I was diagnosed with Lupus, I gained more than 20kg due to the effects of my medication consumption as well as sporadic pangs of pain during the night.
In December 2010, prior to starting MB, I consumed 20mg of steroids daily. As a result, I experienced some side effects such as an increase in appetite, moon face, intense sweating, hyper-activeness, and insomnia.
On that very same month, I fell ill and had to be hospitalized. My dosage of pain killers was increased from 10mg to 20mg. I feared that an intensified dosage would result in a built-up tolerance of the pain killers, thus, bumping up the chance of medication addiction.
After undergoing 16 days of MB, my Lupus condition stabilized and I no longer suffered extreme pain in the middle of the night. I was finally able to sleep healthily and naturally without the inducement of sleeping pills. After 6 months of MB, my current consumption of steroids decreased to 5 mg per day.
On my most recent check-up with my physician last April (2011), he expects me to able to function daily without steroids from this coming August onwards.
That came as great news to me as my fears of pain suffering and drug addiction disappeared.
I am well aware that MB is not the complete cure for my disease. But it is helping me get on the track for an active, healthy lifestyle.
My metabolism is well balanced and my immune system is ever stronger to deal with whatever new afflictions may come.
As a bonus, I am slimmer, looking fresher than I have ever been, and very active in my life.
Thank you so much, MB and Coach Yulie, now my life is more bright than yesterday...
