My Story: Connie Krantz

‘New Freedom, Shared Hope’

Connie Krantz, of Mitchell, South Dakota, had serious health issues for years. “In 2006, when I was introduced to Reliv, I was nothing short of desperate,” Connie says.  “At the age of 17, I suffered a bowel obstruction. Since then, I’ve dealt with chronic constipation.
“When I was 30 — I’m 43 now — I developed fatigue that affected every bone and joint in my body. I felt like I’d been hit by a truck!” she continues. “I had a mold allergy that forced me temporarily out of my home and I had serious PMS issues as well.” Continue reading “My Story: Connie Krantz”

Relieved to Figure it Out

Anderson20070322 Necia Anderson, of Pomona Park, Florida, was relieved when she finally figured out why she was so tired all of the time. “I kept wondering what was wrong with me,” she says. “I was just exhausted.”

Tests showed Necia was anemic, so much so that she was advised to take iron pills for the rest of her life. But Necia knew iron pills would do nothing to help her with depression or the bouts of irritable bowel syndrome she also experienced.

“We’ve always been a family that believed in taking vitamins,” she says. “When I visited my daughter and tried a few Reliv shakes, I felt a difference — something I’d never experienced in the years of taking all of those vitamins.”

Within 24 hours, Necia says she had more energy than she could remember ever having. She now enjoys a great sense of well-being, and blood tests show her iron levels are steadily improving.

“I plan to stay on the Reliv products for the rest of my life,” Necia says. “And now I’m sharing them with others through my Reliv business.”

A Better Mother and Wife

Castillo20070515 For six years, Cinthya Servín Castillo of Fremont, Nebraska, suffered chronic migraines. Her friend came to visit, “and she saw how bad I was feeling, suffering from my daily migraine,” Cinthya recalls. “She told me that she had started taking Relìv for her own headaches and that they were so much better. I wanted Reliv immediately.”

A month after starting the essential nutrition, Cinthya says her pain had significantly improved. She was also getting relief from other symptoms, including constipation and backaches.
But that was just the beginning of her Reliv renaissance. Cinthya also suffered from panic attacks and nervousness, making it difficult to be the kind of wife and mother she wanted to be.

“Now my family tells me that I look happier,” she says. “Before, my kids couldn’t be loud around me, and now they can be kids again.”Cinthya’s sense of wellbeing was so great that she wanted everyone in her family to try Reliv. “My husband, José Escobar, also suffered from chronic back pain and by day three of taking Reliv, he was noticing a difference.”
Cinthya likes her new life. “My goals are pretty big,” she says, “but now that I’m feeling so good again, I know I can achieve them with Reliv.”

Research Leads to Reliv

Erlbacher20070113 Donna Erlbacher, a librarian at Denison Middle School, in Denison, Iowa, has always been interested in nutrition. And in true librarian form, she did a lot of research trying to find one product that would give her everything she needed.

“I was taking all kinds of things to get the combination just right, but I’m not a chemist,” Donna says. “I wanted something simpler.”
Even though she didn’t like the idea of having to drink a supplement, when Donna learned about Reliv from a friend and tried the product, she was more impressed than ever.
Donna was dealing with some pre-menopause symptoms, and found the night sweats particularly troubling. She’d wake up every night and find it hard to fall back asleep. She needed naps every day after school.

The first thing Donna noticed after starting the products was an increase in her energy level. After two days on the product, she realized she’d slept like a baby. It wasn’t long, and Donna’s troubles with constipation and irritable bowel syndrome were better, too.
After just six weeks on the Reliv products, Donna’s noticed other encouraging results as well. “My knees used to burn when I knelt to put away books on the shelves, but not any more!” she says. “This has really helped me with my stamina and mental clarity.”

Simple Solution for Optimum Health!

Although she appeared healthy on paper, Rosemary Biehn of Burlington, Ontario, Canada, knew her body was not functioning the way it should.

“I had chronic problems with my digestive system — everything I ate went right through me,” Rosemary explains. “My doctor ordered a battery of tests, including a check of my liver, but he couldn’t find anything wrong.”

While Rosemary learned to live with her digestive problems, the migraine headaches that would strike every month left her completely unable to function.

“The pain, nausea, and diarrhea were so severe that all I could do for an entire day was lie in a dark room,” she recalls.

“I tried all kinds of nutritional supplements but couldn’t find the right balance,” Rosemary continues. “So, when I found out about Reliv — and I saw that I could get everything I need by simply taking two shakes a day — I decided to give the products a try.

“Within three days of starting on Reliv, I felt much better,” she says. “And, in the eight years since I started on Reliv, I have had improved results with my digestion and migraine headaches!”

Rosemary adds, “In Reliv, I’ve found the simple solution for optimum health!”

Healthy for the Long Run

Kelly May of Henderson, Nevada, ran 26.2 miles in this year’s Rock ‘n Roll San Diego Marathon. Below the race number pinned on the front of her shirt she printed two words: ‘I Reliv.’ “I did that because although I had never been a runner before, I knew the Reliv products would help get me through the marathon,” says Kelly.

“I felt amazing,” adds Kelly. “The day after the race, I went to the San Diego Zoo and by the next day I was completely recovered. Continue reading “Healthy for the Long Run”
