“Oh come on now, everyone gets a little fluid retention from time to time, right?”

Isn’t it normal to get winded when you take the stairs?  You’re just out of shape not sick.

Do you feel like a hypochondriac if you worry about feeling a little bloated or feel concerned over huffing and puffing up a flight of stairs?

You wouldn’t get anything accomplished if you gave in to such small concerns and quit fighting your way through life! Right?

You might be surprised to hear that even mild fluid retention will drain your energy!

Are your ankles swollen?  Feeling puffy?


If fluid retention and/or shortness of breath is getting your attention, are you ready to explore the solution?

It’s likely that if you can ignore your symptoms you aren’t motivated to find answers, but if you wait for desperation to motivate you time may not be on your side.

Rapid fluid weight gain is a sign of heart failure and shortness of breath can go from mild to terrifying in no time!


Are you concerned about fluid retention?

It can be difficult to tell if you need to lose fat, or if your issue is really fluid!

The Life Breath Club is always discussing fluid retention AND fluid weight loss!

Life Breath Club Member, Anita, lost 7 pounds in 7 days, just by addressing her low oxygen levels and found out life is a whole lot sweeter with less fluid retention to slow her down!

She just keeps on dropping weight, and she says it hasn’t been difficult!

If you know what you’re doing, losing fluid is easier than losing fat!

Anita ended up losing 20 pounds in less than a month.  Even better, she began to gain muscle and get her life back!
