How re:iimmune helped 91-year-old World War II Veteran

I’m Robert A. Susdorf, a 91-year-old World War II veteran who was an electrical engineer and technical manager for 40 years. I have always been very active and have kept busy with projects. In the past ten years, I have had 2 Aortic valve replacements, prostate cancer (now in remission), Melanoma skin cancer (surgically under control), and now Multiple Myeloma., as well as miscellaneous surgeries (lung, hernia, and disc fusion). I have C.O.P.D., congestive heart failure, and neuropathy.

I felt weak, had low energy, tired quickly, was light headed, and lost a lot of my small motor skills.

After two months of taking Re:immune daily, my body has changed remarkably. I feel more awake and stronger. I have much more energy and enjoy doing physical things. I feel mentally sharper and more awake which makes my life much more enjoyable. I’m amazed at the effectiveness of this product!

re:iimmune and Direct Relief Mobilize to Bring Medical Resources to Peru & Colombia

Direct Relief and re:iimmune Mobilize to Bring Medical Resources to Peru & Colombia 

– 35,000 doses of re:iimmune will be included in family hygiene kits to provide clinical strength hydration and intestinal immune support-

Springfield, MO, May 19, 2017— In the midst of historic flooding and mudslides that have impacted hundreds of thousands of people in Peru, Make People Better, LLC has joined forces with Direct Relief to provide essential medical supplies to those in need.

Over 35,000 doses of re:iimmune, a hydrobiotic recovery formula that provides clinical strength hydration and intestinal support, will be donated to Direct Relief to aid in recovery efforts. The doses are part of $32 million in medical inventories that the nonprofit organization has made available in Peru and Colombia.

“In disaster situations when IVs are scarce, many patients don’t get enough liquids to get better and stay better,” says Make People Better founder Dr. Kerri Miller. “I have seen the devastating impact on families and children firsthand. Even with proper nutrition, they often can’t absorb the nutrients from the food. I created re:iimmune to not only provide clinical strength hydration, but also intestinal support so people can get healthy, and stay healthy.”

Since 2014, Miller has donated over 160,000 doses of re:iimmune to sick patients worldwide in the U.S. and abroad. For every box purchased, Make People Better donates one dose to organizations such as Direct Relief who are working daily to improve the health of under-served populations. “We are grateful to our partnerships with Bartell Drug, Kinney Drug, and Walgreens stores, where direct sales make this type of giving program possible,” says Miller.

According to Direct Relief President and CEO Thomas Tighe, “Families are facing severe risks in the wake of these devastating storms. Water sources often become compromised after serious flooding, which can lead to a host of health issues. In addition to dehydration, cholera and other diseases related to poor sanitation pose additional threats to public health. The donation of re:iimmune will be incredibly helpful to promote healing from the inside out.”
