After starting on the New Earth products, I began enjoying a normal night´s rest instead of sleeping eighteen to twenty hours each day. I emerged from a dense mental fog that I suffered from for years. After being unemployed and an emotional basket, I was able to work for four hours a day. After being on the New Earth products for two years, my doctor declared me more fit than most men my age.
