You might not know it if you met me now, but I suffered through 10 years of heavy-duty migraines — ones that would leave me lying on the floor in the dark, praying for the pain to subside.
One doctor after another led me first to Diamond Headache Clinic and then to Mayo Clinic for
quarterly visits (the traveling to which took me seven hours, one way).
One medication after another led to 47 medication trials. The frosting on the cake was the 25 Botox shots every quarter, and still my pain was intolerable. I had to quit my job and I rarely could enjoy social events. I prayed and prayed for the pain to go away.
It seemed like I had tried everything. I was more than ready to feel good again.
It was then that my friend Kim Hall called me to say she was starting a healthy chocolate
business with LiveSmart 360. She sent me the chocolates to try — but they sat unopened on my
countertop. You see, one thing that triggers my migraines is artificial sweeteners like aspartame,
Splenda and NutraSweet. I figured the 360 chocolates contained one of those artificial
Kim was so excited about these chocolates and the way they were improving people’s health that
I became increasingly curious. But what came over me when I decided to host a party to share
these chocolates right after I came home from Mayo Clinic last May remains a mystery to me. In
fact, two days before the party, I tried to cancel and Kim said she’d show up for a visit anyway.
So I gathered my family to listen and learn.
Kim brought her friend, Beth, who had been a migraine sufferer and no longer has problems
because of these amazing chocolates. After listening to Beth’s story and learning about the
products, I discovered that the chocolate’s sweetness was real sugar that came from a plant. One
sugar, called Stevia, is in some products, and the others contain xylitol, which promotes healthy teeth.
I figured my pain couldn’t get any worse, but I could enjoy chocolate. I tried Kim’s 360
chocolates and they tasted great! To my utter amazement, once I began eating the chocolate, I
started feeling better. My pain reduced significantly. I had to pinch myself: Was this even possible? Speaking of pinched, my husband Brad, who suffered from sciatica due to a pinched nerve, started eating the chocolates and voila! He too was feeling zero pain.
The more I learned about the 360 chocolates and the special ingredient called ZorbMax, the more
I realized that yes, it is possible to feel good eating chocolate! You see, the ZorbMax inflates
blood cells with oxygen, allowing the body to absorb three times more nutrients because the cells
start to flow freely instead of being stuck together.
For my next step, I weaned myself off of two medications on my own. Two months later, the
doctor weaned me off of the other two highly addictive meds. Wow! Now I know what it feels to
go through drug withdrawals: I had the shakes, the sweats and more. I can only imagine what
being on those medications long term would have done to my health.
Next, I said bye-bye to the Botox shots. Within six months, my life had transformed thanks to my
new chocolate regimen: eating chocolates every day, all day. The key to success was eating the
360 Camu bar three times per day, and spraying with ZorbMax three times per day for one
month, then reducing to one Camu bar and one ZorbMax spray per day continued my good
It got even better. I went from dumping the pain to dumping the plump. So, when LiveSmart
launched the chocolate Manna 360 shake and ThermoBurst chocolate, which contains the magic
Garcinia cambogia (the ingredient that Dr. Oz has been raving about), I lost 20 pounds.
I am so grateful; it’s now been a full year since I tasted the sweetness of Kim’s 360 chocolates
and now my life is full of “living the sweetness” and supporting others on their quests toward
health and success. My life has now excelled beyond being an average Jane!
