A Little of My Story

I have dealt with depression since I was a teenager due to childhood trauma and having a hormonal iud exasperated the depression and caused anxiety. I tried prescribed medications and all that did was cause me to have horrible side effects, increased anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts which I didn't have prior to medication, severe weight gain just to name a few. I went from taking 1 medication to 5 and 16 additional supplements to combat side effects which continued to get worse the longer I took the medication. I safely weaned off my meds. A lot of the side effects subsided including losing the 60 lbs I had gained. I left my abusive husband and worked on myself. I still had unresolved trauma from the marriage and my childhood but being away from the continuous abusive environment helped. The anxiety and depression lessened and lessened as I healed but still it lingered.

In January 2020 I started having panic attacks and severe anxiety to the point I wasn't able to drive or work. I went to the doctor and all he offered to me was medication. I had been down that road before. I didn't want to lose anymore of my life to side effects. My new husband started researching how to reduce anxiety. Upping my vit D with k, potassium and removing inflammatory ingredients from our diet and exercise were the findings. Within 6 weeks of changing how what I ate and drank my anxiety became controllable.

BUT I was still having anxiety and depression. One day I was talking to my friend about my anxiety and depression and how it comes and goes in waves but even in those low waves it never fully goes away. She sent me links to what she takes to help combat her anxiety and depression. She also gives it to her eldest teenage daughter and it has drastically helped her function in her day-to-day life.

NutriFlair Mushroom Supplement

So I ordered this Mushroom Complex from the US - I could have ordered a comparable one from Amazon.ca but I knew this one worked.

I started with one capsule per day. In two weeks the anxiety, depression and crying reduced. I read the bottle and it states the serving size is three capsules per day. I tried that for two weeks. Within three days my anxiety, depression and crying had lessened. Within seven days the crying stopped and within two weeks the anxiety and depression went away. I'm not saying this is a miracle cure but I go days now without remembering I get anxiety and depression. Forgetting that I suffered from anxiety and depression to the point I couldn't work and it was unsafe to drive.

I have also noticed that my focus is better and my stress level is reduced. I can function like a normal person.

If you suffer from anxiety and/or depression I highly suggest you give NutriFlair Mushroom Complex a try for one month (one bottle).

It is my go to suggestion when someone says they are having anxiety and/or depression. Those that try it tell me that it has helped them as well.

This mushroom complex is natural and I have not noticed any side effects since I started taking it February 1, 2022. I take three (3) capsules each morning after breakfast.
