Theinterview this month is one of those that gets us excited. Being able to walk this path with Alicia has been a gift for us. We have explained many times that the opinion, experience and circumstances of our clients are vital for Upani, in the end it is precisely from you that we learn the most.
Thanks to testimonials like this, we managed to advise you to a better extent and that is priceless.
I hope that some of you feel identified when you read this interview and manage to help him. To us, of course, it already has.
To begin, could you tell us in a general way in what situation you were and are you?
Before starting to take Upani, I lived anchored to chronic pain due to various back interventions, which left me with serious degenerative sequelae.
One of them was also an autoimmune disease called Secondary Adrenal Insufficiency and basically it consists of my brain not sending the order to produce cortisol, which is the hormone of life, so I have to take it artificially. That synthetic hormone directly attacks the bone and literally eats it. In fact, the last back intervention was because I rejected the prosthesis because it had attacked the vertebrae a lot. All that disease process made me fall into depression, eating disorders and chronic anxiety. The latter, along with so many pains, which did not calm them at all, prevented me from living a "normal" life within my limitations.
I was constantly tired, had daily anxiety attacks, couldn't sleep or stay asleep, was irritable, had trouble concentrating, felt very weak physically and emotionally. Imagine, a walking zombie, that was me.
When I started taking it, the truth is that I didn't have everything with me, but I began to not depend on valium for anxiety and to sleep. The back pains had subsided. I had to increase the dose of CBD and found the ideal percentage for me, which was the Luna Llena percentage.
Now thanks to Luna Llena, I keep anxiety at bay, I sleep much better and rest. The fatigue and tiredness have decreased dramatically and the pain... God, it's true that they haven't completely gone but as soon as I stop taking the oil I notice them in their normal form and the difference is abysmal!
Thanks to taking it I can last the day perfectly and it is something that no medicine or anything chemical has achieved.
Since when do you know CBD oil
Maybe 7 or 8 months ago. I can't say the exact date but more or less that time.
Have you tried other brands before?
What made you choose Upani?
I was researching why because of cortisol I can't take anything and I saw that many other oils had many more ingredients besides CBD. I found Upani through Instagram, I wrote to them and from minute one I noticed how close they were. You could tell that they care about people and that we are not just customers. They explained everything to me perfectly, we exchanged several emails until I was calm and they transmitted that family trust to me. They cared about getting to know me, knowing my story and not only advising me, but also being available to me on a personal level.
How has your experience with us been?
It has been like meeting a lost family really. Your trust, your closeness, your advice, your dedication... I could put a but, because you can always put a but to something. But you are just the exception.
Have you decreased your medication?
Yes! I have definitively said goodbye to valium, which also left me feeling shattered.
For the pain I didn't take anything, because nothing had an effect on me until I got to you.
Do you see a mental health specialist?
That's how it is.I go to the psychologist once a week, soon I will start going only once every 15 days. There are many wounds that I have to close due to my health circumstances that have accompanied me all my life. And I have been lucky enough to find a good professional who understands that you have to look for the root, no matter how painful the process is.
As a result of my health I have had to live experiences that no one should live, much less a girl and I am in the process of healing all that.
Why has Upani worked better for you than other things?
It's the only thing that calms my chronic pain. In addition to anxiety, it allows me to organize my mind and have more control over my body, which in my circumstances is a wonderful gift.
What differences have you noticed?
I sleep better, keep theanxiety at bay, my mind is clearer, I have that energy again and it has helped me, although I am shy, to access my extroverted part since my mood is much better. And the back pains that radiate throughout the body have subsided! It really makes me excited to write it.
Would you recommend Upani to someone who may be in a similar situation to yours?
Undoubtedly! Both for the product and for the people behind the company that I already told you, you are family. In the end, it is true that hope is the last thing to be lost, because I had already resigned myself to living with that degree of pain, until I met Upani.
