Continuing the Thrive Experience

‘ello ladies and gents! So sorry I haven’t updated on my Thrive (we were provided with a 3 month supply for sharing the experience) experience in a while. Things have been hectic and honestly I fell off the routine for a while. That was not a good idea but it did give me more insight into the program. It also let me get a feel for the results. I definitely prefer a life with Thrive than without. Within a week of stopping Thrive I was aching again and feeling sluggish. I thought maybe it was withdrawal from the ingredients but I let more time go by and the symptoms did not go away.

I did some research. I Googled the heck out of other people’s experience with Thrive to see if what was going on with me was normal. Apparently I’m not the only one who stopped taking it and noticed a negative impact. A lot of people actually blame Thrive for making them feel bad. To me it’s the same way I felt before starting the program – Thrive just makes life better in my opinion.

That’s a strong statement, I know. I have never been the type of person to rely on anything to make me feel better. Heck, I will suffer in pain as long as possible before taking anything for relief. That’s just who I am, but with Thrive I feel great. Not okay, not good, but great! I  have energy, I’m not aching, I’m not constantly looking for snacks to munch on. I’m content and feel amazing. I have energy to do things like exercise and get dressed.


I’m in no way a medical doctor – my opinion is just that – an opinion. I would never suggest you take or stop taking any kind of medicine or supplement over your doctor’s recommendation. With that said, I have noticed a HUGE change in my mood when taking Thrive. I’ve talked a little about my mental health issues, namely being Bipolar. It probably isn’t the smartest decision I’ve made but I stopped my regular medication to see how Thrive worked on my moods. I’ve noticed a huge difference which is a big deal since I am a rapid cycler. Basically what that means is my moods change extremely quick. Imagine being ecstatic one minute and in tears the next. It happens to me a lot when I am off of Thrive, but when I’m on it my moods seem a lot more stable.

It could all be in my head (and technically it is) but I swear by Thrive to make me feel better. Friends have commented on my demeanor both when I’m taking Thrive like recommended and when I’m not. The decision is unanimous – they prefer me when I am taking Thrive!


I’ve shared my Thrive products with friends and I can’t wait to let them tell you what they think. Stay tuned for that post in a couple of weeks! In the meantime you can learn more about Thrive with the following links.

As with anything like this be sure to contact your doctor before starting or changing anything that could affect your health.

Beginning My THRIVE Experience

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!
