“Hi! My name is Brenna and I am now – literally – exploding with health!
I remember first being introduced to Wayne Garland’s supplements when my son was a baby. I confided in my girlfriend Brooke about my stress, insomnia related to the stress with accompanying heart palpitations and all of the other “fun” stuff that goes along with stress!
She’d met Wayne long ago and had been taking his 5-HTP for a long time.
I was shocked to hear that she had stress issues, because she always seemed to be well-rested, calm, and a generally-go-with-the-flow type of person. Alas, she shared that such was not always so. But that she’d been taking Wayne’s mega-nutrients and 5-HTP (formerly and lovingly called Brain Candy) for years. She told me she’d never gotten sick while she was faithful to his products.
Being a stressed out, full time working, single mother, I was desperate for something that would keep me healthy and help me manage stress. I hated the thought of going to a doctor just to be given an anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications.
So, I skeptically, but hopefully, order my first 5-HTP supplements. The first night I took the 5-HTP, I was able to sleep and was pleasantly surprised to find out there weren’t any weird hangover feelings in the morning. I just felt … Good!
I have to say to this day, that was the BEST investment I’ve made for my health and wellness. I also noticed – in less than a week – I stopped having heart palpitations. IT WAS BEAUTIFUL!
I was so happy with the results that I shared them with everybody – and I mean, EVERYBODY! All the moms and girlfriends I knew were so curious as to my new “secret weapon” I’d found for managing my day.
One of my girlfriends had to go on leave from work due to her depression and stress and had a horrible reaction to every anti-depressant she was prescribed! Hundreds of dollars later, she found out that she did not need any if those drugs – her body simply needed 5-HTP.
As a nurse I see both sides of our health industry, and I’ve concluded that their are two sides. The Preventative Side which is committed to wellness and the Reactionary Industry which is committed to keeping us sick so they can get our money. Why FIX a problem when they can charge billions for a prescription drug to help “maintain” their symptoms?
It frustrates me to no end, and I am often sharing Wayne Garland’s website with people WHO WANT TO GET BETTER!
In the spring of 1999, I was rushed to the ER because I wasn’t breathing! I’d developed a horrible case of asthma, and my poor lungs were finally done trying. Because of complications from my asthma, whenever respiratory viruses would go around, instead of getting sniffles, I’d be in the hospital with bronchitis or stuck at home on breathing treatments via a nebulizer.
I started the Ultra D3 to nip that problem in the bud! Just these past couple months, we had nurses out on medical leave, some hospitalized, and some home with pneumonia due to a nasty respiratory virus. I was the ONLY NURSE on my unit that didn’t get sick!
I KNOW it’s because of my Ultra D3! How can I be so sure? Well, the saying that “nurses make the worst patients” is completely true in my case. I was the type that I didn’t remember to take vitamins well “unless I needed them”. (Like when I was already sick!)
Two years ago in February, my poor son had to watch helplessly as paramedics worked on me in the living room after a respiratory virus caused my asthma to go out of control. It was terrible! I knew then I couldn’t afford to not get my daily preventative vitamins in. I remember not ordering the vitamins that month because I was worried about money.
Ironically, I paid out hundreds on co-pay for meds, ambulance, doctor visits, ER and LOST over three thousand dollars from being off work!
Suffice it to say now, I don’t go a day without my ULTRA D3.
My girlfriend Annie was diagnosed with cancer and she was so impressed that the vitamins were keeping me so healthy she allowed me to give them to her. After only a couple months of chemo, with her supplements, her last scan showed she is cancer free in her bones and lungs! Yay!
I was told my son would need a tonsillectomy at 4 years old because of his recurrent tonsillitis and ear infections. The thought of that was not acceptable. I emailed Wayne and he immediately got back to me with advice! I put my son on Wayne’s products and my son’s tonsils shrunk on their own WITHOUT surgery, and NO EAR INFECTIONS since!
This is huge because my son is at school during the day being exposed to all of the carrier monkeys (students) and if he gets sick, I’m home taking care of him instead of the hospital working to provide for him.
Last year, I read about the cruelty used to get urine from horses so women could get their hormone replacement therapy. This touched me deeply. I’ve always had the horrible, painful type periods that made me feel like I was hemorrhaging and miserable! Not only did my mood swings get nutty when I was menstrual, but the pain from the cramps would be so unbearable that I’d have to pull the car over sometimes and Lamaze breathe!
I learned about DIM and Balanced Women, and they have saved my life! I was able to stop my hormone pills that put women in risk for heart issues, and only take the DIM and Balanced Woman. I immediately noticed the difference. During the first week, I could feel my hormones getting back on track – but the true test was when my special week of the month came. I couldn’t believe how amazing it worked. My mood was stable, no more hormone tears, my cramps were almost nearly non-existent and I didn’t experience the severe abdominal bloating, fluid retention, headaches or other menstrual symptoms that normally made me want to crawl into a hole and cry!
I am a faithful, “LIFER” for sure! I believe in these supplements 100% because I’ve SEEN their efficacy!
I don’t see you guys as just customer service people, either. I’ve brought my questions and concerns to you, only to have them help me time and time again. Wayne really listens and cares, and so does his whole staff! You all have stood by me, my friends and family, and you’ve given them guidance and loved on them. I absolutely LOVE you guys!
I see you as missionaries spreading the wellness and prevention message to the entire world.
I’m totally with you guys, especially when patients get “the diagnosis” that will change their whole lives. I make sure they have your site to check on ways to give them an edge in helping them fight for their wellness. I tell them to check with their doctors to be sure the supplements are right for them (I’ve NEVER heard a doc say ‘no’) and I always remind them that there is hope.
Thank you – Thank you – Thank you for what you do! If my son, Lil B, and I didn’t have you guys, I don’t know where I’d be today!
We love you and thank you!”
