In 2013 I had a health crisis that was traced back to the side effects of a maintenance psych med that I had been on for 30+ years. (the diagnosis was made by a specialist after a year of extensive visits with various specialists) It was a frightening experience and I made the decision to turn to an integrative Doctor that uses the Renova micronutrients in her practice to nourish the brain.
To make a story short, my doctor successfully brought my body and brain into full health and recovery. It took time. The first year was the hardest. But it was hard in a different way than medical management. I learned the blessings of a healing journey and all that it entails and learned to listen to the subtleties of "body talk". And I was astonished that my mental illness symptoms and the damage done to my body by the meds was actually healed in a short period of time. That was never expected when I was in medical management.
I've used the micronutrients faithfully everyday since Oct.2015.
In those 7 years I have taken various amounts of the micronutrient. When I was first introduced to the product, I took them in the capsule form and they were key to my initial detox protocol under Dr. supervision.
When the company introduced the sticks, I was well into maintenance and I switched to them and have really loved them.
Just last month, I was encouraged to try the lightning one capsules. It was a bit of a hard sell, because I have been really happy with the lightning sticks.
I am 3 weeks in to using the new lightning one capsules and have found a subtle difference with them. They seem to sustain my brain a bit better than the sticks. Most days I notice an energy "slump" around 3-5 and my brain gets tired as well. I have tried various things, including a power nap, to address this.
I have experimented with taking a second capsule of the lightning one at about 2pm and have found that it did keep my brain alert through the afternoon and into the evening. It did not interfere with my sleep.
That is a significant response for me and one that I will pay attention to. It is still a new product for me but I am really pleased with it and so happy that I can feel
these subtle happy shifts in my brain when I take it.
My brain really thrives with the micronutrient formula. I'm grateful that I can trust this company to continue to deliver a consistent product that just keeps getting better at bioavailability.
