My personal journey of battling anxiety

When I was 15 years old I was put on anxiety medication. I would feel better initially, then even worse, the doctors would have to increase or switch my medication. I kept coming off but then not long after I would have to go back on. I lived like that for 19 years. I was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and panic disorder. I suffered in silence and felt like there was no hope.


After I had my second child is when I ended up in the hospital from postpartum anxiety. I had to live with my mom for 6 weeks while my husband was working away because I had agoraphobia, it was a dark time in my life. I couldn’t sleep, I didn’t want to eat and life became scary.


Eventually I could somewhat function on antidepressants, but the side effects weren’t pleasant. I researched remedies and natural treatments and spent thousands of dollars trying to heal myself with no success.


7 years later I was in a health shop and overheard a mother asking for a product by Truehope Canada, so I noted it down in my phone and began researching it. I was blown away by all the research into this product and I couldn’t believe I had never heard of it before, especially because I was working in various health stores. The video testimonials and independent clinical studies on the effectiveness of EMPower Plus on mental health were impressive, I finally felt like there was some hope for my struggles.


I decided to contact the micronutrient support line and come off of the Effexor, then start on EMPower Plus. They set me up with a safe protocol to follow and how many I needed to increase of the EMPower, so I wouldn’t feel over medicated or have withdrawal symptoms. I took Freeminos to combat withdrawal and the finest part was that I had no withdrawal symptoms at all and especially no brain zaps which can come with a high risk antidepressant like Effexor.


I have been medication free and only using EMPower Plus, I feel amazing. I haven’t felt this clear and uplifted for years. I no longer google symptoms and believe something is wrong with me, my brain feels calm and balanced now.


I feel truly blessed in my ability to simply be.


I want to bless and spread the joy of what it has done for me with everyone I can because no one deserves to suffer. We need to be educated on nutritional deficiencies and how it affects our mental health and well-being.
