It’s Friday, everyone! And that means another Primal Blueprint Real Life Story from a Mark’s Daily Apple reader. If you have your own success story and would like to share it with me and the Mark’s Daily Apple community please contact me here. I’ll continue to publish these each Friday as long as they keep coming in. Thank you for reading!
My physical health has been pretty good most of my life—I had surgery to attempt to correct strabismus (my eye muscles don’t work well together) twice when I was an infant. I’ve had very few injuries and illnesses, thankfully. My MDA miracle is much more oriented on the mental and spiritual health level.
I was always very squirmy and full of energy, and my restlessness surely got me into some trouble growing up. Even as an adult sitting still was incredibly uncomfortable until 2011, when I began the Primal lifestyle. I was tested and given therapy and medicated as a child to try and address my behavior and imbalance, and came to believe I would be medicated for the rest of my life. In truth, I was grateful for the changes the medication brought about once we found an effective combination and dosage, though the experimenting was difficult.
