Shriranjani came to thrive for help with her Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Within days of starting the protocol, her overall body inflammation started coming down and her body began to lose its stiffness and felt more soft and pliable. Due to her chronic fatigue she had become more dependent on coffee to get her through the day and she slowly detoxed from that in the first month. She lost about 6 Kgs on the protocol and the 3 months with Thrive were just the beginning of her healing journey. She now has more good days than bad and her chronic pain and fatigue is now an exception instead of the norm. She has truly been a health warrior with her discipline and self awareness and has been one of Thrive’s most creative contributors with recipes. Enjoy this creation from her.
