Personal trainer and podcaster Hatty McCafferty was already taking – in her own words - “a raft of supplements”. This was because in 2016 she discovered she had Epstein-Barr, a virus that left her completely wiped. “I could hardly play with my kids,” she explains. “I was only 41, and utterly crippled by fatigue. I could barely get up the stairs.”
Coffee helped, but left her jittery. Magnesium and zinc didn’t do what she needed. “Anything that said energy on the tub or box I would try. Everything.”
By the time she discovered LYMA, she was thankfully rid of Epstein-Barr but then Hatty started to notice the not-too-dissimilar symptoms of perimenopause kicking in.
Taking just two pills either end of the day, Hatty says, was a revelation. And while she didn’t really notice the Supplement working its magic, “not really noticing is the most positive thing – because I wasn’t exhausted, and I was sleeping. It was quite gradual, because my starting point was very low.”
After a few months, and wanting to see if it was doing all the good LYMA promised, Hatty decided to abstain for a month to see if it changed anything. “It did,” she laughs, “I’m glad I only left it for a month.” Suddenly she noticed how much better her sleep had been, how much better her mood had been, and how even something as simple as walking the dog wouldn’t leave her completely poleaxed.
That’s what Hatty wants to stress to potential LYMA customers, and it’s what she tells everyone who asks her if it’s worth the investment: “it’s not magic. It’s not going to be instant. If you’ve been ill or tired for six months, or six years, it’ll take more than a day to make it all better. But it’s been enough time now that I’m convinced it’s bloody marvellous.”
A few weeks ago, a woman contacted Hatty on LinkedIn: it was her 50th birthday soon, she said, and she was wondering whether it was time to subscribe to LYMA? Hatty told her what she tells everyone: if LYMA is available to you, then it’s worth a try. “You’re not committed to it, either physically or financially, forever. Give it a go. Read the reviews and see if any of them resonate with you. See what it does for you. It’s really worth it.”
