Why do I use E-Lyte sport? In a perfect world I would have been an athlete of some sort and use E-Lyte sport anyway. However life is not perfect. I was born with a genetic mutation disease called neurofibromatosis type 2. NF2 leaves a person predisposed to developing tumors on their hearing/balance nerves, optical nerves, brain and spinal cord. Due to this, I am deaf since age 23 (36 now), born blind in one eye, have a paralyzed right hand, leg weakness. Presently I have several brain tumors (menigiomas) and spinal cord tumors. I do not know for certain what the future holds for me healthwise but I do everything in my power to keep my body free of toxins and balanced by using certain nutritional supplements and electrolytes. Simply put, since E-Lyte sport is the best, I chose to use that and feel it really helps me in this fight against nf2.
