Been taking some of your stuff for a couple of years now- since before the name change-and thought it was time to drop you a line.
I work in an insanely stressful environment.
I’m a psychiatric nurse in one of the busiest psychiatric emergency rooms in the nation. Every day we get in around 30-60 individuals brought in handcuffs by police who are frequently aggressive, psychotic, strung out on drugs, etc.
We have to wrestle with patients, protect them from themselves, and try to prevent them from attacking us. The luckiest among the staff make it 6 months before our first physical assault.
Nursing in most states is actually one of, if not the, most dangerous professions- worse than police or prison guards.
I have had multiple coworkers assaulted and a doctor was even killed by a patient a few years back. Short version- it’s stressful in a big way.
I also have a history of depression, anxiety issues, being a bit husky (even though I was super fit a few years back in my early twenties).
After buttloads of research and education ranging from NLP and hypnotherapy certifications, classes from an actual Tibetan llama, lots of nutritional education and regimens of essential oils and herbs, etc… I can honestly say that now, as I am turning 40 this summer, I am the healthiest and most stable physically and emotionally as I have ever been in my entire life.
Credit to you for a healthy chunk of that.
The herbs you supply have been very helpful. The pine pollen and pine pollen tincture have given me a real boost and I notice in a big way if I get in a rut and neglect to take them for a couple or three days.
While it’s great that they help guys bed the women and lose a couple of pounds or get their confidence back with some morning wood, they have helped me in very different ways from that.
They’ve helped me walk into work with a smile on my face in a job that is dangerous and stressful as hell. That means a lot for me, my coworkers, and my patients.
So yeah… thanks.
P.S. Thanks again for your assorted badassery.
