My Story: Linda Pixton

Feeling Younger and Better Than Ever

After staying home to raise her eight children, Linda Pixton, of O’Fallon, Illinois, was pretty excited to be working again.

“At first, it was fun,” Linda says of her job in a maternity clothing store. “I loved helping people look terrific. I knew that when people looked their best, they could focus on more important things.” Continue reading “My Story: Linda Pixton”

I Feel 20 Years Younger!

When Master Affiliate Flo Demetrio of Chelsea, MA, began using Relìv essential nutrition products last year, she had an unexpected positive side effect — a 31-pound weight loss!

“I lost weight because my body was getting nutrition, so I had fewer cravings for unhealthy foods,” Flo explains. “It was surprising because I wasn’t dieting. I was just more satisfied nutritionally. And the longer I’m on the products, the better I feel!” Flo says she has also been able to lower her blood pressure and blood sugar.

Before Relìv, Flo couldn’t walk a block without joint pain and fatigue. After adding Arthaffect® to her essential nutrition, she has a full range of motion. She also has more energy than ever before. “I’m no longer hyperventilating by the time I get to the top of the stairs!” she says.

In fact, she feels so much better, she completed the Relìv Kalogris Foundation Walk for the Mission this year. “It was gratifying to walk for the cause, and I owe it to Relìv!” she says.

“A year ago, I felt like I was 10 years older,” Flo adds. “I’m a different person today. I feel 20 years younger!”

Keeping up with Life

Birchmeier20061004 Jerryl Birchmeier, of Rochester Hills, Michigan, thought she was tired because she was the mother of three little boys — Zachary, Seth and Kyle. But the real problem was irregular blood sugar levels.

“I had a hard time keeping up with life in general,” Jerryl recalls. “I didn’t even feel like taking the kids to the park most of the time. It just felt like too much. I felt so guilty because that wasn’t the kind of mom I wanted to be.”

A specialized diet and medication did little to control her blood sugar levels, and she still felt exhausted. Jerryl, a registered nurse, ran into a colleague at a nursing conference, and he told her about Reliv. She agreed to start her family on the products.

Within the first month, she had a better sense of well-being. A month and a half later, her blood sugars started to regulate.

“I just felt like doing more. I wanted to go places again,” she says.
Jerryl was also surprised to discover she could tolerate dairy products again after being lactose intolerant for years. One son has had great results with food allergies, and her husband Mike’s joint discomfort is less bothersome.

“With Reliv, we’re starting to see more solutions instead of just problems,” she says. “I’ve got my smile back.”

Slimplicity Hits a Home Run!

clip_image001 Clark Bronson, a 3-Star Director living in Northport, Washington, has changed his health — and his life — with Slimplicity®. “August 2005, I was working in my shop and heard an advertisement for Reliv,” Clark says. “I was worried about my wife’s health and recommended she try this stuff. She said she would if I did, too.”

Clark got great results with achy and stiff joints and digestive problems and decided to become a full-time Reliv Distributor. “Then Slimplicity® came out,” he says. “I had never used a weight-loss product before. I weighed 203 pounds — I’m 58 — and on February 7, 2007, I went on the Slimplicity® products with a goal of getting down to 175. By June 1, I weighed 170 and lost six inches off my waist. I hadn’t worn a size 30 since high school!”

“I watched what I ate and snacked on, walked my 10,000 steps and used Slimplicity® — it’s easy and simple,” he reports. “The weight just melted off, most of it in the first eight weeks. I’ve maintained my weight within 2-3 pounds and I’ll never go back to the way I was. In my mind, Relìv has hit a home run with the Slimplicity® products!”

Relìving the Good Life

clip_image001 Six-Star Directors Suzanne and Earl Anderson of Bloomington, Illinois, have overcome a great deal with Relìv and have seen their lives change dramatically for the better. “I had suffered with frequent and severe headaches all my life,” Suzanne says. “I was using strong pain medications and experimenting with bio-feedback and nutritional treatment, but everything just seemed to exacerbate the problem. I’ve also had serious joint pain for 10 or 15 years.”
Earl was fighting his own health issues, including high blood pressure, high blood sugar and a developing prostate problem.
“Our daughter introduced us to the Relìv products four years ago,” Suzanne says. “I noticed steady improvement and over six months my joints significantly improved. It took a while longer, but in time, I no longer suffered those debilitating headaches. And Earl astounded his doctors — he was now maintaining healthy numbers.
“Simple things, like getting in and out of our van, used to be a painful chore for me,” Suzanne remembers. “Now I am so much stronger and we both have much more energy. We can enjoy going for walks, and traveling and our days are longer and more productive, thanks to Relìv.”
