Tess's Constant Health Story

I often ask Tess to read my blog entries. She promptly caught a typo in my last one, which I fixed. The funny thing was her response, that went along the lines of:

"I like this one, a lot. But don't you think I was the first one to mention a major benefit from taking Constant Health?"

Tess is 24, almost 25 (her birthday is December 6th). She has this remarkable, flawless complexion that even her peers admire. But I tend to forget that she did formerly have problems with her immune system.

You see, Tess still has her tonsils and she used to blame her annual downtime on her tonsils, ending up on antibiotics more than once when bad colds became practically life-threatening. Tess's health has gotten better since she came back to work for me, and I like to joke that I didn't give her enough stress to make her immune system collapse on a regular basis.

Maybe that's part of it. However, even though Tess works for a supplement company, she was not always good about taking her supplements (she's a kid, they think they will live forever, right?).

When the early shipment of Constant Health came in, Tess started drinking a morning "shake" (she loves the new shaker bottle with the little metal wire wisk ball). Tess said she felt more energy and looked forward to her shakes, but didn't think much more about it until she noticed that her knees didn't hurt going down stairs anymore.

Anti-inflammatories such as turmeric or curcumin and boswellia, in particular, in Constant Health are a few of the likely suspects in Tess's new ease going down stairs (Tess injured her knees playing basketball in school).

But here's "the rest of the story." Tess caught a cold that was going around and she spent only one day being a bit tired and resting, and the next day she was on the mend. No tonsils getting inflamed. No spiking fever. No rushing to the doctor for antibiotics.

It's not scientific fact, but Tess has been bragging about her new-found immune system strength. And, the correlation is definitely there. Tess has been religiously taking her Constant Health (well, "taking" is really not so apt, as Tess doesn't "take" her vitamins -- she does like to "drink" them though).

Maybe seniors and twenty-somethings have more in common than you'd believe otherwise. Both groups complain about "taking" pills!
