Before I tell you the true-life story behind our brand, I want you to understand that Fitlectic is not just a clothing brand …..... it’s way more than that, and I’m sure you’ll understand better after reading my story below.
You see, every idea starts with a problem, but mine was so HORRIBLE that it almost claimed my life.
As a matter of fact, I had passed out twice and almost didn’t make it alive the second time.
My survival was what gave me the idea and the synergy to build “Fitlectic”, a brand that has been built to impact lives around the globe today…
This is how it all happened
When I was still in the military, I was one of the top performers in the physical fitness test that was occasionally carried out. As of then, I never understood what it means for someone to pass out. In fact, I thought that people do fake it… but not until I experienced it twice.
The first time it happened to me was in 2017, and a friend drove me to the emergency room. And the second time, I was rushed by a 911 ambulance to the emergency room. The craziest part of it was that all these happened within a couple of months.
When I first passed out, the GI doctor that was in charge of my treatment stated that I was having severe bleeding, and it was as a result of stress. I told him I was under zero stress, and that as such, my passing out cannot be as a result of stress. After spending some time in the hospital, I felt better and went home. But then, the root cause of my conking out was never treated… and that was when my problem started.
After a few months, I had the same experience where I passed out, and I was rushed back to the emergency room… this time with a 911 ambulance.
When I woke up I noticed that I’ve been hospitalized again, and that was when it dawned on me that I really need to do something on my own in order to regain my health.
WHAT I DID
I searched online and saw an article that described the exact symptoms I was experiencing and the reason I was experiencing those symptoms.
The following day, I told the GI what I thought could be wrong with me and asked them to get me tested of H Pylori Bacteria (according to the article I read the previous day, H Pylori was the disease that caused the symptoms I was having).
When the result of the test came out positive, I was determined to take full control of my health and my road to recovery. So, I made the first move by adjusting my diet and meal plan.
Yes, I believed (and still believe) that some of the things we eat as food can also be medicinal to us and can help eradicate so many diseases.
That was when I started another research on the meal plan that could help me regain my health back. and this time, I came across an article on Harvard health. In the article, I learned that the healthiest form of diet is the Plant-Based Diet.
At this point, I was ready to do anything or pay any price for my health to fully come back. And guess what… I went all-in on a plant-based diet, and I started learning what type of food to eat and the ones to avoid in order to enhance my health condition.
Finally, I was able to heal myself with plant-based food, keeping fit, and drinking an average of 96 to 128 ounces of water every single day.
Within 6 months, I already got rid of all the medications I was taking, including the ones that the doctor prescribed that I should keep taking for the rest of my life.
I started recovering very fast.
Not just that…
The “Protruding hemorrhoid” which the surgeon concluded that the only solution to get rid of it was through surgery started receding on its own without any medication, except for my normal routine of eating a plant-based diet, keeping fit, and drinking enough water.
That was how I got my health back.
HOW IS MY STORY IMPORTANT TO YOU?
Now, the most interesting thing about my story was that “I was able to find my passion and purpose in life”, which is to encourage and educate people on the importance of fitness, healthy eating, and drinking enough water, and why it shouldn’t be taken for granted.
Knowing that there are lots of people out there that have lost hope of recovering from their sickness or struggle, I decided to empower those set of people with my unique strategy on how to regain their health as I did. That was what lead me to create this page @rethinkmindfullness.
@rethinkmindfullness is my Instagram handle where I share plant-based food recipes, exercise, and motivational quotes to our audience that wants to own their health.
But something happened while I was running the Instagram page. So many of my followers were complaining that they would love to go plant-based or vegan, but they do not know where to start. So in collaboration with a licensed nutritionist, I created a meal plan.
However, I needed to add something to the meal plan so it would make anyone that would use it to regain his/her health faster. That was what lead me to create a workout plan for any fitness level.
The idea behind me adding this work plan to the meal plan is to provide the two things that helped me to recover from my sickness faster than I ever thought.
I planned to sell both the plant-based meal plan and the workout plan for $99.99 so I can at least cover the cost of running the website and also for paying my VA who is providing individual support to anyone that’s part of the program.
But after creating the program, I realized that some members of my audience couldn’t afford to pay so, I decided to give it away for free. I felt that selling it would defeat my purpose and mission of taking the message of healthy eating and exercise to the world. That made me to even pay my VA from my own pocket.
On the other hand, I also noticed that so many people are engaging in our motivational quotes on Instagram so, I figured out how we can come up with something that’ll keep reminding our audience to always maintain a healthy lifestyle. That was how I started my clothing line at www.fitlectics.com.
Fitlectics.com is where I sell a designed T-shirt, sweatshirt, and hoodies that’ll encourage, motivate and sometimes start a conversation in people’s fitness journey and their plant-based lifestyle.
We have lots of ideas in incubation that’ll help our brand to grow bigger, while helping people in the rural areas of the USA and everywhere around the world to access the same opportunities that most people in the big cities have, and we can only do this with your support.
So, we’ll really appreciate it that you help us to help others by supporting us today.
