& Lifestyle Practitioner
Story of Hope
In March of 2007, several members of our family of 13 were facing some severe health challenges. I was experiencing the full throes of pre-menopause symptoms, one of our daughters was struggling with severe mood swings and bouts of depression, my husband had been diagnosed with type II diabetes a year prior, and our youngest son, Nathan, was facing the numerous challenges of cognitive delays, upper body muscle weakness, severe speech delays, and a seizure disorder.
I was frustrated as I had made numerous efforts to keep my family healthy for many years. Farming is our main occupation, so we always had a large garden, and our meats came from animals, which were raised by ourselves or from local farmers. We also belonged to a food co-op and purchased organic foods to supplement whatever we could not raise ourselves. As a registered nurse I knew intellectually that liquid nutritional supplementation was far superior to the vitamin pills I had been giving my family. I was praying for answers!
When a good friend introduced us to these products, I was skeptical. My background in nutritional studies kicked into gear as I studied the labels on the cans carefully. However, the wonderful health stories I heard from other people who were using these products gave me some hope! So, I put all my fears aside and decided to try them.
Since starting the products, I now face menopause with a smile! A flood of peace entered my mind and body! The mood swings and down days are no longer an issue. My teenage daughter experienced significant improvement in her mood swings and my husband has seen improvements with his blood sugar management, as well as a reduction in his blood pressure. And, most wonderful of all, our son Nathan’s health has improved so much! His speech has improved significantly! His upper body strength has also improved dramatically, and we continue to see improvement in his cognitive skills as well. We are so blessed that Nathan has been seizure free since December 6th of 2009, and medication free since November of 2015. He has also been "signed off" on the need for further visits to his orthopedic physician. He grew 7 inches in 20 months and is now a handsome young man who is 6' 6" tall. He has learned to read and write, and we look forward to a bright future for Nathan!
It is wonderful that this food science company has given us a way to pay for our family’s consumption of the products, just by sharing our results with others. And now, as my husband approaches retirement age, I am building a home-based business which will help us financially as well.
I love the fact that this residual income can be willed to my special needs son, so that I can be assured he will be taken care of after I am gone. And, best of all, my childhood dream of being able to help people with their health can now be more fully realized. We will be forever grateful for the blessings this company and these products have brought to our family’s life!
These wonderful improvements in our family’s health because of using this superior liquid nutrition, has led me on another journey…that of becoming certified as a Functional Nutrition and Lifestyle Practitioner. Find out more information about functional nutrition and lifestyle here. The service that I will be providing in this role is to help people learn about inflammatory foods in their diet and be their guide and support on a journey towards gradually eliminating them, as well as giving them resources to replace those foods in their daily meal plan. I will also explore with them different ways to balance blood sugars and help them to work towards experiencing a better night’s sleep…things which are crucial for long term weight loss and good health!
My strongest desire is to assist parents and families to experience better health and wholeness, that they can become the best version of who God created them to be! I am filled with gratitude that I am now able to help even more people on their journey to health and wellness!
