Here’s a hint on how my last week went: Bleccccchhhhh! I felt pretty gross in my second week of taking MaxGXL®. Apparently, this isn’t uncommon.
Detox or flu?
As I mentioned in my last update, I was struggling with some of the flu-like detox symptoms after starting MaxGXL®. Sore throat, stiff muscles, foggy brain, whatnot. So I backed off the product a bit, reduced my dosage by half, then completely stopped. That seemed to work until I suddenly got nailed by a sore throat, drippy nose and repeated sneeze attacks. My colleagues said I caught the bug that’s been invading Calgary, but I told them I was just de-toxing. They all respectfully agreed but now that I look back, I think they knew they were right.

Sona: My dad, Anil Khosla, is a very smart man. On weekend mornings, we catch up over the phone. I tell him about my job, my dog and my husband and he gives me the latest international news and insight on how this will affect the global economy, the job market and mortgage rates. And, whether I like it or not, he also gives me a little personal financial advice.

So, here’s something a little different than what you’re used to. Feel free to comment and ask Anil for his financial views. Trust me, he will not hesitate to give you his very informed opinion!
Back in March, I published 2 articles about the raw dog food company, Pets Go Raw. On March 20th, I complained about their new sausage-style packaging. Then, on March 25th, I followed up by sharing the very professional reply from Pets Go Raw which shared some suggestions on how to manage the new packaging and a respectful request to give them “a second chance.”
Anyone who knows me knows that health is not my top priority. Anyone who knows me also knows that my closest friends are health nuts or health practitioners. And those who have known me for more than 5 years know that I once managed the well-known integrative medical clinic in Calgary, The Hoffman Centre for Integrative Medicine run by Dr. Bruce Hoffman himself.
One of the most fundamental things I gleaned from my learned health friends was that optimizing your health is different from managing pain or symptoms. Most of the world is just looking for ways to fix their ailments and manage their pain so they can get on with life. There’s a small portion of people who are trying to nurture a healthier internal environment so that they can prevent the onset of future ailments and disease. Here’s the difference:
