I received Thrive products in exchange for my honest opinion.

2 herniated discs.
Spinal Stenosis.
Dozens of spinal tumors.
Dysthymia (Chronic Depression)…

These are the majority of the issues I live with on a daily basis. Chronic pain and a general lack of drive are 2 of the primary symptoms that come from these conditions for me. Being constantly tired, no desire to dress or leave the house. Having trouble finding anything to smile about. I wouldn’t wish living like that on my worst enemy. I also hate the amount of drugs the doctors prescribe just to get me through the day. I don’t know what’s in them, they make me sick and they do nothing for my energy levels.

I was beginning to think I was fighting a losing battle.

There comes a point when you’re suffering that you don’t want to fight anymore. You become weak-willed and giving up seems like the most logical option. It’s at that point where the Fight or Flight Response kicks in. I’m so happy that my fight response overpowers that flight instinct.

Even in our weakest moments, we’re stronger than we think.

When I was first introduced to the THRIVE Experience from Le-Vel I didn’t have much else to lose. My house was a total wreck, much like my life. I had no drive to do anything, let alone work. Bills were coming in but the money wasn’t. That just added to the depression. It was all just piling up and piling up. I was drowning and there was no lifeguard in sight. 

The first day of my THRIVE Experience I woke up, grabbed the packet of capsules that I sat beside my bed and took one with a bottle of water. Before I ever put my feet on the floor (as per the instructions.) Then I put on the DFT patch; only half because that’s what I was instructed to do. 20 minutes later I downed the THRIVE shake mix and waited. 

At this point, I wasn’t too sure what was going on. I knew I felt different, but I wasn’t sure if it was my overwhelming hope that I would actually notice a difference or if this stuff was actually working. I mean, I wasn’t completely sold on the product, especially after doing research. Nearly everything I read was just someone trying to sell THRIVE for Le-Vel. Not exactly convincing.

So I went into my THRIVE Experience as a skeptic. 

I made it through the first day feeling great; I just wasn’t sure if it was a mood swing or the product. So I continued. I did the same routine the next day, only, this time, I used a whole patch. What happened?


I got my house cleaned. I got my work caught up. I went for a walk. I cooked a real meal. The only time I actually sat down on day 2 of my THRIVE Experience was to work. I felt unstoppable. There was an initial case of the jitters. You know, like when you’ve had too much espresso. That feeling went away after about 30 minutes. It wasn’t overwhelming, just slightly noticeable. 

Day 3, Day 4 and Day 5 all went by with the same results. I was feeling great! 2 weeks have gone by so far and I’m still feeling amazing. That’s not me trying to sell you something, that’s me telling you the God’s honest truth. I feel like I did in my late teens/early 20’s. I have energy, I want to do stuff. I want to leave the house and spend time with friends and work. I want to live!!!

I’m finding myself where I’ve wanted to be for so long. With hopes and dreams and aspirations. I’m finally starting to see a future without my life being blurred by a fog of depression and pain.

My pain levels are way lower than they’ve been in a long time. I’m not fighting urges to scarf down bowls of ice cream and bags of chips. Water has become my go to drink and I don’t miss soda at all. I’m, are  you ready for this, HAPPY. I’m truly happy for the first time in years. There is nothing bringing me down. I feel unstoppable. I’m really hoping I keep seeing these results and you can bet I’m going to keep you updated!
