Meet Margie: An Incredible Testimonial to Power of Keto & Ketosis

by Sara Banta | Jun 21, 2016 | Articles, Keto, Success Stories

Have you ever met someone out of the blue, and thought, “I don’t know how, but this person is going to have a priceless impact on my life, and I can’t wait to see where it goes?”

When I first met Margie, her story changed me. It made me, first, feel extremely grateful for what I have been given and secondly, made me realize that if I can help her, anything is possible, and I am obligated to share what I know…

Margie: Tall, Slender, Blonde, Beautiful — No surprise to have found out she was a model at one point. But after a few minutes of talking with her, it was apparent her gorgeous outside matched her large beautiful heart. Then she told me about her long list of ailments and health issues. All I could think was, “This sweet individual is one of the strongest people I know as she is smiling and feeling ‘Blessed’ despite the tough path she was given.”

In Margie’s Own Words….

KETO helped me regain control of my life. Up until last fall, I can best describe myself as:

  • Exhausted
  • Foggy- Brained
  • Confused
  • Forgetful
  • Highly ridden with Anxiety
  • Overwhelmed
  • Easily panicked
  • Frozen and ready to GIVE UP

I exercised countless hours to just maintain my physique. I was surviving on coffee for temporary energy and wine to relax my high strung nerves.

I was also on multiple medications to control my seizure disorder. In addition to that, I was just one year post a health milestone in my life which forced me to need a hysterectomy and go through months of treatment.

My seizure medication wasn’t completely effective either. I still had breakthrough seizures a few times a year. I experienced multiple headaches and fainting spells. I had constant tremors and hand shaking. I also suffered from poor circulation in my hands and my feet — they would frequently go completely numb. I also lived in a type of ‘cloud’ most likely due to my medication or my overall neurological state.

In a Facebook post, I saw Sara Banta had shown the KETO Shake and it’s unbelievable claims. It was everything that I desired, but I thought would be impossible to attain. Health has been a focus for me my entire life; from when I was in elementary school to becoming an adult, I had a career in the entertainment industry that relied heavily upon my physical look and health. It was constantly on the forefront of my mind. Having seizures just added to the pressure of needing to look young, beautiful, and maintaining the perfect body. Obviously these are ridiculous expectations, but it was all I knew and all that surrounded me. By the age of 18, I started cutting out carbs and sugars and set my sights on proteins and fats. I ironically was doing it to stay in shape and, little did I know, I was helping my brain by achieving Ketosis through nutrition.

So the idea of drinking the Keto Shake to put my body into a state of Ketosis and achieve highly efficient functioning — both physically and mentally — and optimal health seemed like a dream. Previously, it would typically take me weeks or months with strict dieting only to get my body into that sweet spot of feeling fantastic (and in nutritional ketosis). And, now at the age of 41, being a mom of four extremely busy kids, achieving nutritional ketosis seems to be nearly impossible.

Immediately after I started taking KETO I noticed a difference. I became more calm; I felt a sense of peace like I haven’t felt in years. I slowly grew stronger and could feel the garbage in my body leaving. I craved less sugars, and wanted more water and healthy foods. My mind started to clear during this time.

Ironically, I also received a letter from my doctor saying that I would have to find another physician to treat my neurological issues. Typically this would have panicked to me. We had had a long, trusting relationship. But instead, I believed this was an opportunity presenting itself for me to take the next step in my journey towards health. My doctors and I had been previously talking about slowly weaning me off of the medication I was taking to assess if I needed to be put back on a new medication and to observe my brain activity.

So, with KETO by my side I embarked on the long, slow, road of withdrawal from multiple neurological medications I had been on for almost a decade. It was hard but not impossible. And I got through it a little quicker than anticipated relying on the extra physical support that KETO gave me.

Then something amazing happened…


I had NO MORE tremors or shaking. My brain wasn’t foggy or fuzzy. I didn’t have that pre-seizure feeling I was used to having before a seizure. I didn’t have anxiety anymore or panic attacks.

I Felt Superhuman.

I increased my KETO intake and also noticed quicker memory recall and sharper thinking. I could feel my thought process working — if that makes sense. It was like my brain had been turned back on. Life seemed fun again and lighter and much brighter. I was laughing and playing with my kids in between all of our busy times instead of worrying or panicking. I have bounds of energy that I didn’t have before. Now, when presented with a daunting task, I am able to look at it, assess the situation, and respond appropriately. The overwhelming fear that controlled so much of my brain was gone.

Life is exciting again and full of possibility!

My blood flow and circulation have improved. Also, I believe the KETO Shake along with increased healthy fats in my diet made it possible for me to currently be free of medications. My situation is unique, as all of our bodies and brains are different, but the buzz in my body, mind, and soul are undeniably to the thanks of KETO. It made my dream a reality, and the future of growing older an exciting gift. My unique situation only needed a push in the right direction to Optimum Health. And I am still experiencing improvements daily. That is an addictive feeling…

I Love Feeling Good!!!

And a side note I wasn’t going to mention Weight Loss because that was not the focus of mine, but my body did change. While I was sick from withdrawal I had to put exercise on the back burner. Surprisingly, I had to do a lot less to stay in shape. My muscle mass started changing and looking better. My body got leaner due to the Keto Shake and foods I was putting in my body. My physique is healthier looking than it was before I started and much easier now to maintain.

I love feeling Strong, Creative, Secure, and Safe in this body. I am forever grateful for KETO.

Of course, the above are the most exciting and important changes I have felt since meeting Sara (Banta) and using Accelerated Health Products.”
