I am James Arnold, and this is my LIMU Experience.
My story begins in 1991 while serving in the U.S. Army in Saudi Arabia during Operation Desert Storm. A missile attack would end lives that day and come very close to ending mine. It would change me forever and for the next 25 years I would suffer mostly in silence, wishing, hoping and praying for an answer. After retiring from the military with over 30 years of service and losing both my parents within one year, I was simply lost and was searching for something, anything that might help.
From the outside looking in, my life looked just fine, but I felt like the outside world was fighting with the inside of my mind. People would say to me all the time, “You sure do have it made.” Little did they know I was about as far from having it made as I could possibly be. I knew chronic pain and mental illness very well, as they were always there to remind me of the wear and tear and mental stress of a career spanning over three decades. After hundreds of medications, undergoing numerous surgeries, and going through countless sessions of physical and mental therapy, I was simply at a breaking point in my life.
I honestly thought 2016 might be my last year to be here. I always felt alone in a crowded room and people that suffer with mental illness know exactly what I am talking about. You pretend you’re having a great time in a group, but all the while you feel alone, concentrating on just holding it together. That’s what soldiers are trained to do, just take it and never let anyone down.
A hotel stay while visiting our son in Memphis would change all that. My wife and I saw people coming into the restaurant wearing shirts with this “LIMU” logo on them and I thought, “What in the world is LIMU”? When a couple asked if they could join us because there weren’t any other seats, my curiosity about this logo kept growing stronger. Finally I asked “What’s LIMU?” They proceeded to tell me how it had changed their lives, and I could tell these LIMU people seemed happy and so full of life.
The next day we drove home and I thought about LIMU. I thought, with all of my issues, this surely couldn’t be the answer. I remained skeptical and asked my wife, “What do you think?” She said, “What do you have to lose?” When I got home and went to the website, I felt that LIMU was something I needed to do, so I ordered LIMU ORIGINAL. I still had doubts that LIMU would be able to give me back a better quality of my life and help me regain that which I was losing little by little every day.
We got the bottles and I started drinking 4 ounces a day. I didn’t notice anything different right away, but when I woke up after the third night, I noticed I had slept much better, so I had more energy and felt better overall. Yet I thought surely this isn’t because of LIMU. A few days later, I felt less anxious and I started to feel a little more whole again each day. I just kept feeling better every day, and after just a week I knew in my heart that this was the answer I had searched for all these years.
We realized LIMU had done so much for us that it wouldn’t be right not to share it with others, so we became Promoters!
Amazing leaders started calling us, pouring out such love and support that it simply didn’t seem real. After getting to know them, we learned they are not just totally committed to our success, they are authentic and care more about helping people than anything else.
People say to me all the time, “I’ve never seen you like this, James.” I always tell them that it’s because I haven’t been like this in a very long time. Am I completely well? No, but I am certainly better than I have been in many years. I now believe with all my heart that our bodies are capable of far more than we realize if simply given the proper fuel.
I’m going to dedicate the rest of my life to sharing and building a team to take this amazing, life-changing LIMU to as many as will listen. To me, this isn’t a choice, but an honorable obligation to help others health-wise and bring economic hope to those who need it. You see, I know a little about being part of a team and with LIMU, I have the best!
I am James Arnold, a husband, father, brother, son and soldier, but rest assured, I am LIMU!
