I was struck by an IED while serving my country and I thought that was the end. They flew me back to Bethesda Naval Hospital and my prognosis was grim. I went from 220 pounds down to 145 and spent 44 days in a coma. It was a very rough ride for me.

Someone introduced me to Reliv and it changed my life. I started with Arthaffect® and immediately felt improvement from the soreness from my latest seizure. Reliv’s recuperating powers aren’t miraculous; they’re scientific. Reliv gave me the courage to come back after being told I couldn’t walk, after being told that I was out of the game.

I started doing judo again and by 2010 I had secured a gold medal and a world title. I’ve been in martial arts all my life and I’m here to tell you that this stuff works. Thank you, Reliv, for giving me my life back. I’m training for the 2016 Summer Olympics and can’t wait to be on the podium drinking my Reliv shake!

He’s a world-class athlete and we couldn’t be prouder that he relies on Reliv products as a key part of his training regimen.”
