I often get asked how I got into the nutritional supplement business. So I thought I would share my story in hopes that it might help someone else in their health journey.
As a kid my childhood was plagued with health problems such as allergies, asthma, scoliosis and bouts of depression. I was a high school and college athlete and these health issues made training and competing in golf, swimming and boxing much more challenging for me than most of my teammates. As a young adult after college I failed to focus on my physical or mental health and they slowly declined in my 20's and 30's. I gained weight, my depression and anxiety got worse, my scoliosis turned into spinal stenosis and herniated discs requiring surgery, chronic allergies were miserable, I developed high cholesterol, triglycerides and blood pressure, and in my 30's I was diagnosed with Low T and chronic fatigue. At one point I was taking prescriptions for my prescriptions, to a total of 10 per day, and I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I knew there had to be a better way.
I have an advanced education in research, so I decided to start doing my own research on how to heal myself holistically with nutrition and exercise. I learned what ingredients helped with which ailments and how my physical condition was directly tied to my mental condition, as well as my various medical problems. I started exercising, eating right and taking nutritional supplements that are clinically proven to help. A few years ago, after just 3 months of living this new healthy lifestyle, I had lost 20 pounds and more importantly, 10 prescriptions. My doctor gave me my first ever clean bill of health. I was ecstatic to be living healthy and healing my body with nutrition. So I decided to leave my corporate career and side gig as a college professor and start my own health and wellness company. I used the knowledge I had gained to develop products that not only helped myself, but could also help others with similar health issues as myself.
That's how Promethean Wellness was born. We help people with their overall health, as well as with many of the issues I listed above, including regulating blood sugar, pressure and lipid levels. Shedding pounds and building muscle is an added bonus! I hope this story resonates with you and encourages you to do your own research in nutritional healing.
To our health,
