By about midway through my program my anxiety was non-existent. I got my energy levels back and I was working out and playing basketball with the group at night. I feel the best I have felt since I was a child.
I feel like a brand-new person leaving this program. I have met some great people here that I consider friends. I feel healthier, my skin is softer and clearer, my mind is sharper, and overall, I feel great.
