For most of my life I have suffered from anxiety and depression. I am in long-term recovery and have been sober for over 28 years. I cycled through many other addictions… shopping, relationships, and finally food – which caused me to become a diabetic 15 years ago. The day I began the amino therapy (Polygen®) I noticed that I felt a little different. As the days passed, the first thing that I noticed was that I no longer was clenching my jaw. My face was relaxed for the first time in as long as I can remember. The second thing I noticed was that I no longer ran for the sweets and was no longer craving things that I previously could not say no to. The next thing to improve was my ability to focus. At first, I felt like I had tunnel vision, whereas previously I always felt scattered. My entire life I had racing thoughts, my mind would jump from one thing to another. I had difficulty staying on one task at a time. The last thing was that I had always had negative thoughts, a lot of negative self-talk and negative self-image. I had thought I was lazy because I had no real desire to take care of myself. I would think, “I just don’t care.” Well, not anymore! I truly do care about myself now and for the first time I can truly feel joy and be comfortable in my own skin. Thank you Dr. Blum for changing my life!
