Like me, there are a huge number of people living with underlying health conditions. Many of them are suffering in silence, diagnosed or not, and most are taking meds to alleviate the symptoms.
The shots can help a lot of these people. They certainly help me!
Our recent survey showed that 1 in 3 of our shotsters have an underlying health condition, and two-thirds of them felt the shots helped to manage their condition. People bouncing back from cancer treatment, like Samsara, or being pain-free from arthritis, like Rose. Or like me, getting a brain boost to help with Parkinson's Disease.
Don’t get me wrong. I am not suggesting we have a cure for anything. I'm under no illusion that the shots can cure the illness, but good nutrition can make a difference in how you feel.
When I was diagnosed 10 years ago, I was referred to a specialist in Oregon - Dr John Nutt, a Professor Emeritus of Neurology specialising in Parkinson's and Movement Disorders. He was recommended to me as one of the top practitioners in North America. I remember his advice vividly. There are no magic cures on the horizon. He asked whether I was aware that "the drugs haven’t changed significantly since the 70's". That really burst my bubble. 😔
However, he went on to say...
"In his experience, the people who lived best with the condition were those who:
challenged themselves physically and mentally,
kept up the social contact,
and slept well."
Sounds like a recipe for a healthy life which everyone could benefit from. It reminds me of the Blue Zones stories - the people who live long, happy lives, with extraordinarily good health. The common traits they displayed matched the 'prescription’ I received from Dr. Nutt. I thought, "I can do this" and it sounded way better than waiting round for a miracle cure.
I was introduced to the shots in 2017. I became a regular customer, and shortly after became a major shareholder and director. It became incredibly apparent that the shots worked for me, and that I was not the only person who would benefit from taking them.
Even if you don’t have an underlying health condition, it’s highly likely that taking the nutrient-rich shots every day will give you more energy and make you feel better. Our customer surveys consistently tell us that over 80% of our daily Double Shot shotsters, notice a marked improvement. For those with underlying health conditions, the impact is usually more dramatic.
Why do the shots work?
The best way I’ve found to describe it is:
"If you let the tide go out on your nutrition you expose the rocks, or your frailties, and when you give your nutrition a boost it brings the tide back in."
Alarmingly 96% of all men in New Zealand don't eat the recommended daily servings of fruit and vegetables. The stats for women aren’t much better. In my book, they're letting the tide go out, which means they probably aren’t feeling great. They're exposing themselves to a higher risk of chronic illness.
Taking a Double Shot each day is an easy way to give yourself a boost. It helps you get your daily dose of micronutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and more.
My specialist in Christchurch told me at my last checkup that he couldn't believe how well I was doing. He said that we would never have talked about things like nutrition making an impact 10 years ago, but he is now. I'm still on medications and I would never propose that nutrition is a substitute, but there is clearly a role for good nutrients, alongside your medical treatment to make you feel great, and ready to take on the world each day.
