I myself am a sucker for a good story. Sometimes it’s easy to feel like we are surrounded with depressing stories; people getting sick, losing their job, the list goes on. Well, I want to make this a place of positivity to PROVE to you how REAL it is for you to achieve the goals you have set for your health and your life! All of these individuals have incorporated the Sunrider Foods into their lifestyle and most have also worked with me to get to the root of their health issues and bring out their vitality and the health warrior that was hiding within. Who knows, maybe one day YOUR STORY will be up here!
I know a lot of people think Facebook is a waste of time and energy, but that’s where I met Jessica and I will always be grateful for that. It took me a while to realize that she was a TOTAL gift from God and I just LOVE the way that He has brought us together and how close we have become. I feel SO comfortable with her and feel like I can talk to her about anything.
I had been SO sick for SO long and I thought it was about over for me. I honestly did. The quality of my life was…well….there was no quality. None! It was going downhill very quickly and no one knew how to help me. Traditional doctors were making me angry. They were blaming ME for having blood sugars that were out of control, but yet they couldn’t help me. They thought I was being lazy and careless. I had so many other health problems that affected my sugars, and unless I got some of those issues taken care of, I would NEVER get any control.
You see, a stressed out body causes high blood sugars. The doctors all admitted that, yet they offered me no help. All they wanted to do was fix my sugars and never addressed anything else which made no sense.
I had no where to turn. No idea what to do or how to do it. I started doing some research online and became even more frustrated, confused, and scared. Everything I read was contradicting each other, so my frustration got to the point where I was ready to just forget the whole thing and just wait it out. Just take some in and out breaths until there were no more.
When I met Jessica, she was SO DANG NICE! Haha… Sweet is a great word to fit her. And SO encouraging! The more I talked with her, the more I KNEW, that I KNEW, that I KNEW, I had hope! Hope. Something I hadn’t had in YEARS and years. Basically, God saved my life thru her.
Today, I cannot believe how far I have come in the healing of my body and mind. I have a long ways to go, but I AM going to get there! I’m confident! I feel better than I have in YEARS! The knowledge I have gained from Jessica is priceless. It’s a knowledge that I believe I could never have gained anywhere else. And the patience she has with me is endless. She’s never made me feel stupid, or lazy, or worthless (unlike traditional doctors). She has this way of taking away all my stress. What she offers is permanent. It doesn’t compare in the slightest with the knowledge you get from traditional medicine because you get none. At least I know that they didn’t do ME any favors. They only offered shame, discouragement and an empty pocket book. But I kept going back because they made me. They made me because they wouldn’t refill my prescriptions unless I went back. Back for another dose of shame with an extra helping of bad bedside manners. And I was paying them for that!! They did NOTHING for me.
With the knowledge I’ve learned just in the few months I’ve been working with Jessica, I will NEVER go back! (God willing)
In closing, I feel I must add a little praise for the Sunrider Company. The biggest and most powerful thing we can do to heal our bodies is making sure that every little thing we put into our mouth will do nothing but feed us. The Sunrider products have totally done that for me. I absolutely LOVE that! I feel so good every time I eat them cuz there isn’t much else out there that is SO nutritious! You just cant go wrong with them and you just get better and better every time you eat them. I was actually suffering from malnutrition and something called toxic hunger. I was unable to absorb nutrients and I was ALWAYS hungry and craving everything that was bad for me. I didn’t realize that my body was trying to tell me something. Sunrider has changed my life in that I no longer crave all the crap. It doesn’t even appeal to me. And because my body finally has the nutrients that it needs, it is no longer trying to get my attention by having cravings.
Now I KNOW I’m getting everything my body needs to heal. It sounds like a miracle, but that’s how God made our bodies. The ability to heal itself if we put the right things into it that He created. Foods that were designed to HEAL. There is SO much to be said for the right nutrition. I’ve heard that for years, but I just didn’t know where to start or what to change. I THOUGHT I was eating pretty healthy, but I was far from it.
So, a very unexpected change for me concerning the future. I’m actually excited about it and excited to continue my journey to complete health with My family, My Jesus, and Jessica at my side. LIFE IS FINALLY GOOD, again! Woowhooo!! Such a happy girl!
FREE from Autoimmune Disease
My name is Carmen and I am 25 years old. I have been married for 5 years now and we have 2 beautiful healthy little girls (Aiva 4yrs Kendall 18 months). I owe much of our health to, who I am now proud to call one of my closest friends, Jessica Aubrey. A mutual friend knew some of the issues I was going through and mentioned them to Jessica. She contacted me that night. I am so grateful for Jessica’s huge heart and passion for helping people. Had she not contacted me with a possible solution for my pain and suffering, I don’t know where I would be today.
I have a long medical history that began when I was almost 9 years old. I am going to make this a very short version of the whole story. When I was 9 years old I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder called Mixed Connective Tissue Disease. It is in my opinion today, a bunch of garbage names as a result of poor nutrition and exposure to toxins. The doctors put me on multiple medications and told me that was the only way I could manage my symptoms. At 19 years old I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and given yet another pill (for more information on my story visit PurelyBalaced.Wordpress.Com). At this point I was done. NO MORE MEDS! NO MORE WESTERN MEDICINE! So I embarked on a very scary journey of holistic and natural healing.
I made a lot of dietary changes over the next few years. I weaned off all meds except the thyroid in just 3 months. I still struggled with flare ups, anxiety, and severe hormonal imbalances. Both children and I came to have severe Candida yeast overgrowth even with my new lifestyle. I was very frustrated and could not figure out what else was missing. I was a very scared young mother who wanted to do things naturally and needed someone to show me the way.
Jessica emailed me and told me she had some “foods” (Sun Rider) that might be able to help me. I was very weary at first because of the whole multi-level marketing fad going around. I had already been offered tons of them and found the ingredients to be a joke. I found out very quickly that these were different. At the time they were very expensive but with the help of Jessica and a few sponsors the foods kept coming. I did not like them at first especially because I was pregnant and nauseous. Then I realized on the days I skipped I didn’t feel as well so I just kept eating them. I lost faith many times because it was a whole 5 months before I noticed some real big changes. The skin issues were still a pain and colds kept coming and turning into more serious issues like bronchitis for my 5 month old at the time. I knew I needed more of something.
I went though a health program with Jessica where I learned more about healing from the inside out and from every direction. During that time I was able to get rid of my last pill for the thyroid and I was officially drug free!
I have come to find that with proper eating habits, cleaning up our environment, prayer, and SunRider’s top 4 to 5 foundational foods (along with a few other fine tuning tools) my family and I are going to have a very fulfilling life ahead of us. In fact I decided to add another SunRider food to my mornings and noticed within 3 days a huge change. My mental clarity is coming back and my anxiety is almost gone!
Jessica has been such a blessing to me and my family. She is so compassionate and always there for me when I have a question or something I don’t understand. If she doesn’t know the answer to something right off the top of her head she will not rest until she figures it out. She is very knowledgeable and professional but has a great sense of humor that will brighten the darkest days. She knows so much about the SunRider foods along with multiple other natural approaches to holistic healing which is such a comfort. Most importantly she is an amazing Christian woman with a love for Jesus. She never lets you forget who is in charge and how important that relationship is, in the whole picture of true healing. I am so excited for her journey and can’t wait to see how God uses her in healing people His way.
My name is Jeanette Swords and here is my Sunrider story since I started eating the foods consistently in June 2009.
In December of 2003 I was told I had stage four pre-cancer cells in my uterus and needed a complete hysterectomy. Although I told my doctor to please leave a good ovary if he found one, he took both, even after finding that the right one was normal. When the post surgery tests came back he told me I was “cancer” free. It was confusing to me especially since I started out with ‘pre-cancer’ cells. After the surgery I did not heal properly. Nothing was normal about me. My emotions skyrocketed to extremes. Sleep was not normal, daily routines turned into a blur, no energy or severe adrenaline rushes, but the very worst of all was a horrible pain deep in my low back/tailbone area. I did not know how to ‘do’ life. My joy was gone. One day, after talking with my son, he told me, Mom, you have no joy in your life. And I did not know how to get it back.
In 2005 I found a brochure about Sunrider. After learning about the philosophy of regeneration, I thought maybe this could help me. I began eating the basics and started feeling somewhat stronger. During this time I searched alternatives ways to find relief for my tailbone pain. Because of the pain I would not sit and by the end of the day the pain intensified. None of the alternative ways produced any significant relief. I began eating less Sunrider. After one alternative treatment which involved needles called neural therapy, I began breaking out with itchy, weeping rashes on my legs. The rash spread to the other leg, over the tailbone, to the arms and hands. I began to lose weight. (I have pictures to show of my skin). During this time I was going to every dermatologist that would take me. I was eventually sent to Ann Arbor hospital, where one lead doctor told me it was all in my head and I needed psychiatric care. They put me on Xanax and pain medication. I began overdosing on Xanax to escape the horribleness of the sight and itchiness of my skin. My skin disease reminded me of the book of Job and his boils. Instead of scraping mine with broken pottery I scraped it with fingernails and washcloths. The pain was so severe in my body that I didn’t want to move. I lost the desire to live. This condition lasted for 3 years. I fully believe it was the love and care from my husband and close family that kept me from taking my life. Then I had a blood test that showed I had hepatitis C. There were eight areas of the complete blood count that were out of range.
In June of 2009, after dropping to 98 pounds at 5′ 7″, I decided to get serious in eating the Sunrider foods. The days were long as my body tried to heal. I was eating two or three NuPlus, two Quinary, Calli and Fortune Delight a day, with SunnyDew. Every time I drank Calli the itching would get worse in my legs. It was very difficult at first as I waited and hoped, along with believing that the body really can regenerate with these foods. I also would only eat healthy whole foods along with the Sunrider. It took about a year and by that time I could sit for longer times and began driving short distances. The skin began clearing up and feeling soft. I was also taking Beauty Pearl, Bella, Alpha20C and VitaDophilus. I would sit in the sun during summer for the vitamin D. In another six months I started lifting small weights to help gain strength; because I had lost muscle mass and I wanted to be able to lift my grandbaby. There were some months my skin would break out in spots, and then fade away.
In January of 2011, I had another blood test. When the doctor saw me he was astonished and couldn’t stop saying how well and healthy I looked with so much energy. He wanted to know what I had done then recorded the complete details. I weighed in at 114 pounds. Then came the results of the blood test. ALL eight areas of the complete blood count were NORMAL, but I could use a little more salt at the table.
All liver enzymes were normal, kidney – normal and vitals in the best range. The hepatitis C has dropped to the low risk level and the viral load by 600,000. My doctor asked when I wanted to come back as he didn’t see a need. We agreed to keep following this healthy lifestyle to see what more changes could take place.
The importance is in eating the foods consistently, following a healthy lifestyle of whole foods, looking on the bright side of life and trusting fully in God. During my times of deep despair, God held me in his hand and became my total source of strength every hour of the day and night.
Today, I am holding my sweet grandbabies, lifting weights, working out, caring for my aging parents, teaching piano lessons, and living life to the full. Praise God, my joy has been restored!
Sunrider changed my life… (Kelly, Age 21)
Before Sunrider I was sick all the time. After every meal I felt like I needed to throw up. My stomach always hurt and I couldn’t poop for days at a time. I would even go a week at some points without going to the bathroom. I saw a specialist and he diagnosed me with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and gave me medicine that messed up my body and bowels even more.
Along with digestive problems my menstrual cycles were excruciating and very heavy. I wasn’t able to do anything for 3 days because of the pain from the cramps. It hurt to move, to breathe even. The doctor suggested I had endometriosis but it was never diagnosed.
Before Sunrider I was also very depressed and anxious all the time. I was seeing a psychologist but nothing seemed to be working. He suggested medication but I didn’t want to go down that route because all the meds were doing were screwing up my body even more.
FINALLY I found some comfort when Jessica Aubrey introduced me to Sunrider. I was hooked from the moment she started talking about it. After only a week of drinking the tea, fortune delight and eating a pack of NuPlus every day I could feel my body start to balance out. I started pooping every day! This was a huge deal for me. I noticed I was happy all the time, from the moment I woke up to when I fell asleep. I am also no longer anxious about anything. When my first period came after starting Sunrider I noticed a huge difference! There were still cramps but I could bare them. The flow became less heavy and I am now able to go on with my days as normal! I have so much more energy now and just have a positive feeling inside me. It feels so great to be able to wake up happy and feeling great! I am in love with Sunrider and I will not go a day without their products in my system! I would recommend Sunrider to all my family and friends, without a doubt!
Healing PCOS through Sunrider… (Brittney, age 20)
For the past three and a half years I have been struggling with hormonal irregularities and excruciating menstrual cycles. I started to have my period 3 or 4 times in one month. I went to three different doctors but none of them could tell me what was wrong with me. Finally, about a year and a half ago I was diagnosed with PCOS. I was told the only thing that could help me was to stat taking birth control. After about a year of trying about 4 different types of birth control pills without any success. About 3 months ago when I had pretty much just written of fixing all of my issues, I was introduced to the Sunrider products. They have completely changed my life. After just a month of being on the Sunrider products I had fewer periods. I have been using Calli tea, Quinary, NuPlus, and Fortune Delight for 3 months now and have recently started taking Beauty Pearl. I now have just 2 periods a month, but more importantly I feel so much better. I feel like I am a healthier person.
Hormonal and digestive problems eliminated through Sunrider (Jessica, Age 23)
These past 5 months, incredible things have occurred in my body after starting the Sunrider Basic program. For 6 years now I have struggled with severe digestive problems off and on: acid reflux, indigestion, sour stomach, bloating, swollen abdomen with pain, chronic constipation, parasites, candida, food allergies, gall bladder problems, you name it. 6 years ago I also stopped having my menstrual cycle. This was the same time I entered college, was extremely stressed, and very active. I was put on birth control pills for 3 years which fixed my symptom of amenorrhea (absence of period), but never fixed the underlying reason for my low hormone levels and ended up causing me much more grief than good in the form of yeast overgrowth and a diseased gallbladder.
For years I have eaten a very clean diet, exercised, taken mega vitamins, whole food vitamins, spent hundreds of dollars in expensive high quality supplements, done acupuncture, chiropractor, massage, read books, gone to specialists, literally done anything and everything I could think of to bring balance to my body and eliminate my health issues. I am not saying these methods are bad or wrong but nothing was able to strengthen and regenerate my body like the Sunrider foods.
I am THRILLED to tell you that now I rarely have digestive issues. I h ave daily bowel movements which was unheard of for me, stomach distension continues to decrease, I have much more energy and mental clarity, my anxiety is gone (which I have struggled with for years and years), and now the most exciting new development in my body… My body has now regenerated to another level and my menstrual cycle has returned on its own for the first time in 6 YEARS! I might be one of the few in the world who are actually excited to get their period! Haha…
I am SO incredibly thankful for how Jesus is healing my body through the Sunrider foods, through the foods HE created to strengthen our incredibly created bodies. The Sunrider foods are for every body at every stage of health and I highly recommend them to everyone. It is time we take control of our health, strengthen our bodies, and quit accepting disease and illness as a normal way of life because it is NOT. there is an incredible level of health and enjoyment in life that is so easily attainable through the perfect nutrition, Sunrider foods. They have changed my life and I know it will change yours.
