My husband and I started Aim for Health in April, 1997 not long after I had a right frontal craniotomy. The doctors discovered, what they thought was a large macroadenoma on my pituitary gland. I was sent to see a Neurosurgeon at Loma Linda Medical Center in Loma Linda, CA. It was found I had a serious sinus infection so before they could do the surgery for removal of the macroadenoma I had to have sinus surgery. This would be my 5th one and still I was getting these sinus infections.
The day came for the craniotomy. They had to remove part of the bone on my skull to get to my pituitary gland. Once after surgery I found out it was not a macroadenoma at all.. They were granulomas. I was diagnosed with an almost rare auto-immune disease called NeuroSarcoidosis. I was prescribed with 65 mgs. of Prednisone a day.
In 6 months my hair started to grow out again. However, I gained so much weight from the Prednisone without changing my diet. I went up to 297 lbs. I was shocked. I had no energy. It took every effort for me to get out of bed to go to the bathroom just a few feet away. I prayed and asked God for help. This was not me!
One day while watching the 700 Club I saw a guest by the name of George Malkmus. He was talking about a green powder drink and how wonderful it was. Right away I went on the internet, found it and ordered. It was the best decision I had made in a long time. Within 2 months I was out of bed and cleaning my house! I couldn’t believe it…. I was cleaning my house. I had so much energy and was feeling great. Slowly, I reduced my dosage of the Prednisone then opted for Hydrocortisone instead at a really low dose until I eliminated it completely. I lost all of the weight I had gained and no more sinus infections or surgeries! I decided to distribute the green drink powder and that’s how it all started.
