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 – Get Well Make Well Campaign

Through the Get Well Make Well program, a serving of re:iimmune will be donated for every box purchased to organizations who work daily to improve the health of under-served populations and catastrophe relief. Your purchase of re:immune helps you to “get well” and simultaneously helps “make well” the life of another. To date Get Well Make Well has enabled us to donate over 100,000 servings world-wide through Convoy of Hope.

Every year a half million children under the age of 5 die from dehydration and millions more suffer from poor intestinal health and malnutrition. Lack of clean water sources lead to an increase of diarrheal diseases which cause severe dehydration, leaving the body in a depleted state and requiring more than just plain old H2O to rehydrate efficiently.

Dr. Kerri Miller, the creator and founder of Make People Better spent time volunteering as a medical aid in Nicaragua where she witnessed lethal dehydration up close and inspired her to develop re:iimmune and eventually the Get Well Make Well campaign. She worked with the Nicaraguan government to introduce the World Health Organization’s protocol and implement the use of the oral rehydration solution with zinc for immune support. A prebiotic and probiotic complex promote the growth of beneficial bacteria which help destroy bad bacteria and support the immune system, while L-glutamine assists in tissue repair and ginger reduces nausea. By first restoring hydration and then offering support to the immune system, re:iimmune proved helpful to people facing terrible intestinal diseases such as cholera and dysentery.

Our Get Well Make Well campaign gives you the opportunity to help people a world away. For each box of re:iimmune sold, one potentially lifesaving serving is donated to organizations who work daily to improve the health of underserved populations and disaster relief. If you would like to get involved and use re:iimmune in your global health organization please follow this link to obtain more information.

Investigated: Inflammation and the Benefits of Ginger and Zinc

 

twenty20_ig-465450059976468957_23746337

Inflammation in and of itself is actually a natural and protective response by the body. White blood cells and the substances they produce help to fight against infection from bacteria and viruses. Unfortunately, there are instances when this natural defense system goes out of whack or in cases such as arthritis and other autoimmune diseases, inflammation is occurring even though there’s no bacterial or viral infection to fight against. Chronic inflammation is painful and it is extremely damaging to our bodies. Numerous studies are revealing that it is linked to diseases such as heart disease, Alzheimer’s and cancer.

re:iimmune was created with an understanding that dehydration exacerbates inflammation in the body. Our solution provides Clinical Strength Hydration® with a rich package of health-supporting ingredients including probiotics, prebiotic, electrolytes, L-Glutatmine, zinc and ginger. After testing re:iimmune’s capabilities, a recent study published by the Journal of Nutrition and Health shared that testing indicated that “five inflammatory markers were significantly altered as a result of incubation with the re:iimmune product.”

Ginger and zinc were added to our formula for a variety of reasons. Ginger is effective against nausea and zinc is known to help promote immunity. In addition, both ginger and zinc have anti-inflammatory qualities!

Ginger contains phtytonutrients called gingerols known for their potency in reducing inflammation, muscular pain and swelling. The Arthritis Foundation notes in their article “Health Benefits of Ginger for Arthritis” that a University of Miami study proposes that “ginger extract could one day be a substitute to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). The study compared the effects of a highly concentrated ginger extract to placebo in 247 patients with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee. The ginger reduced pain and stiffness in knee joints by 40 percent over the placebo.”

A large percentage of the population is deficient in zinc, including an estimated 40% of older adults, which compromises our ability to fight off common infections. Research out of Ohio State University found that zinc “gently taps the breaks” on an over-response of the immune system and that  “a protein lures zinc into key cells that are first-responders against infection. The zinc then interacts with a process that is vital to the fight against infection and by doing so helps balance the immune response.” This process prevents excess and damaging inflammation in the body.

Cholera Outbreak in Haiti – re:iimmune Relief Effort

photo-3-1170x500

Friends, Haiti needs our help! After the recent devastation of Hurricane Matthew, Haiti’s citizens are facing a terrible outbreak of cholera as reported by news outlets such as nbcnews.com. Cholera is a an aggressive diarrhoeal infection caused by ingesting food or water contaminated with the bacterium Vibrio cholerae. People who have been infected begin to show symptoms within 12 hours and 5 days after exposure. Cholera can cause severe acute watery diarrhea which leads to dehydration. In severe cases it can kill within hours if left untreated. The bacteria remains present in feces for 1-10 days after infection and are then shed back into the environment, potentially infecting more people.

Our partners, Convoy of Hope and Project Hope have boots on the ground in Haiti. They are providing water and supplies within their relief efforts, but water alone is not enough. re:iimmune’s hydrobiotic technology is clinical strength hydration with intestinal immune support, the very thing to aid in relief efforts when IV’s are scarce and a rampant spread of intestinal disease is ever present.

Through re:immune’s Get Well, Make Well  program, we have donated over 120,000 servings of life saving hydrobiotics to date through Convoy of Hope. We have donated 4,000 servings to Haiti so far, but to reach more people we need your help! We have set up a page over on generosity.com that enables you to directly buy 1 box, ½ of a case or a full case as a donation to the people of Haiti. With each purchase, we will donate extra servings as well! You can find the full details by following this link: https://www.generosity.com/emergencies-fundraising/haiti-relief-no-one-should-die-from-dehydration

Can you help us get more re:iimmune to the people who need it the most? Make your donation today and we’ll get it to Convoy of Hope and Project hope for delivery. Let’s make a difference today!

Get Well, Make Well – re:iimmune®

“Pure water is the world’s first and foremost medicine.” – Slovakian Proverb

Water is the source of life. But what if you aren’t lucky enough to live in a country that has developed sanitation and easy access to clean sources of that gift of life? In much of the world, water then turns from being “medicine” and instead becomes the infecting agent of terrible illness and death. As reported by the World Health Organization, each year gastrointestinal diseases kill 2.2 million people globally, primarily in developing countries where citizens lack access to clean drinking water. Contaminated water spreads malaria, dysentery, cholera and a host of other horrors which bring on diarrhea and weaken the body’s immune system. This year, a half million children under the age of five will die from dehydration and millions more suffer from poor intestinal health and malnutrition.

Our goal has always been to save lives by changing these awful statistics and we know you want to help! We understand that the weight of the world’s problems often leave folks feeling helpless and at loss for how to make a difference. Sometimes it is the simplest of actions that make the biggest impact, and our Get Well, Make Well campaign enables our customers to take part in changing and saving lives around the world. It’s pretty simple; For every box of re:iimmune purchased, a serving is donated to relief organizations working to improve the health of underserved populations. Your purchase of re:immune helps you to “get well” and simultaneously help “make well” the life of another.

We are proud to join great organizations like TOMS Shoes and to partner with humanitarian organization Convoy of Hope to distribute doses of re:iimmune to developing countries. To date, 80,000 doses have been donated and with your continued support we can make that number skyrocket!

What is a Hydrobiotic™?

When you make new things, you get to make up new words- so that’s what we did! Dr. Kerri Miller created a mighty combination of Clinical Strength Hydration®, and a multi strain pre and probiotic blend containing a special combination of 14 different probiotics and one prebiotic (the food probiotics require in order to flourish). When you look at the various keys to recovery, you’ll see that very high up on the list sit both hydration and intestinal health. Alongside these two vital components of recovery, you’ll also see adequate rest, a healthy diet, exercise, and a positive mindset listed.

Dr. Miller saw a missing piece in our healthcare system after working in it for over 20 years. We weren’t providing adequate means for our patients to stay hydrated and improve their intestinal health in an easy and accessible way, so she did something about it! She began her journey to create a solution, the first oral Hydrobiotic™. The first and foremost portion of this equation is “Hydro”, which represents the Clinical Strength Hydration® formula found in re:iimmune®. It is the first sugar free hydration pack made for rapid hydration needs. The “biotic” in Hydrobiotic™ stands for, you guessed it, probiotics! Not only did Dr. Miller witness her patients struggling to stay hydrated, but many medicines given in critical situations such as cancer, surgery and chronic illness, take costly tolls on your digestive health.

The pre and probiotic blend in re:iimmune® was especially formulated to promote restoration of the beneficial gut flora (good bacteria) that keep your digestive system balanced and functioning properly. L-Glutamine is an amino acid found in re:iimmune® that has more than one purpose, not only is it a co-transporter that helps your cells absorb hydration quicker, but it also helps rebuild healthy tissue in your intestinal wall. The ginger extract found in re:iimmune® boosts immunity, aids in digestive health and also reduces nausea. In cases of chemotherapy patients, antibiotic use and pregnancy, nausea is a common symptom and ginger is a safe solution. As you see, the Hydrobiotic™ formula in re:iimmune® represents it’s core combination of both hydration and probiotic supplementation, but the moving parts that make re:iimmune® the best way to get better, better™ are vast!

Emotional Immunity

Why Wednesday

My gut has nevnicole.per been in optimal shape. Due to being born via C-section and pumped full of loads of antibiotics during my first few weeks of life, I got off to a rough start.

7 months ago, my Dad was in a major car accident, after months of hospitals and rehab, we found out he had stage 4 cancer. I began to struggle even more with stomach issues through this process. re:iimmune has been a huge help in keeping my tummy in shape and a necessity to my overall health. I won’t travel without it and hate to run out!

I re:iimmune after a restless night, I re:iimmune  the second I begin to feel any illness coming on, I re:iimmune when I need a boost of energy, I re:iimmune when I’m working hard and feeling drained and dehydrated. I feel like this product is extremely beneficial to my gut and I also LOVE the way it tastes! Cheers! -Nicole

Truth be told, our gut health affects nearly every function in our body, but the functionality of our gut health is also easily disrupted by internal forces. When stress is introduced, whether it be positive or negative, our immune system and intestinal balance are affected in significant ways. Stress affects your digestive health (sometimes going as far as to produce stomach ulcers). Stress is known to raise blood pressure- which in turn lowers your immune system and causes circulatory complications, as well as impaired brain function and sleep patterns. The list goes on!

We commonly think to beef up our immune system when our sleep schedule is thrown off, flu season kicks in, or someone uses the same hand they just coughed into to shake your own- but do you think to take extra precautions for your healths sake when faced with an emotionally taxing crisis? Studies show that simple laughter strengthens your immune system, so imagine the strain your physical body feels after hours, days or months of chronic stress or trauma. Next time you’re faced with a “nervous stomach”, reach for a packet of re:iimmune® and get better, better™!

No More Bandaids

Why Wednesday

“I’ve strugglSarah_Garzaed for most of my adult life with constant UTI’s and in 2014, this reached an all-time high. I was pregnant, and during this pregnancy, I had 7 (yes 7) bladder infections and consumed countless rounds of antibiotics. By the end of it, I was exhausted, frustrated and feeling awful. My doctors decided to put me on a daily prescription that I would have to take for the rest of my life. Not a cure by any means, but a ‘bandaid” just to get me by. After reading the side effects of the medication, I knew I had to find a way to heal myself naturally. I began a diet of whole foods, and I started pumping my body full of probiotics. During this personal health revolution, a friend of mine told me about re:iimmune. It sounded like everything I was trying to put in my body all in one small packet! I ordered some re:iimmune almost immediately. Now, re:iimmune has become a part of mine and my family’s regular health routine. Sometimes, if I’m feeling particularly run down, I’ll take it once a day for several days in a row. Recently I had a stomach virus and the only thing I could keep in my system was the re:iimmune. My body was able to heal itself while staying hydrated. It’s been over a year and a half and I haven’t had one UTI, nor have I been on any antibiotics. I also never did take the prescription that was supposed to make my life “bearable”.  For me, this is a medical miracle! I’m the healthiest I’ve ever been and I contribute this to great gut health with the help of re:iimmune. I feel better at 40 than I did at 30, and I’m expecting a healthy baby boy this summer.” -Sarah

 

As a society, we have just begun to scratch the surface when it comes to our understanding of digestive health, and the effect it has on our overall health- the benefits of a healthy gut are proving to be endless! From energy improvements, uplifted moods, hormone balance and generalized health- to notable improvements in chronic illnesses and serious diseases. Digestive health has been linked back to all things positive in regards to our wellbeing. It’s time that we stop putting “Band-Aids” on our laundry list of symptoms, and begin to heal ourselves from the inside out.

When it comes to a healthy digestive system, there isn’t one explanation, one supplement, or one diet to correct the complexities of each individual body. Instead, it takes work, research and an open mind to find what’s right for you and your body. One thing we do know is that no matter who you are, or what your body tolerates, adequate hydration and healthy intestinal bacteria will assist your body in its attempt to heal itself. re:iimmune® contains a multi-strain probiotic blend that is accompanied by a prebiotic which acts as food for the probiotics and in turn, aids in your healthy intestinal bacteria’s growth. At the core of re:iimmune® is our Clinical Strength Hydration® formula which helps your body maintain optimal function for all of its vital organs, while strengthening your immune system. If you’re feeling distraught over reoccurring symptoms, a negative prognosis, or a plateau in your personal health goals, add re:iimmune® to your routine and get better, better™!

Understand Your Condition

condition information overload, get better with reiimmune

Thanks to the internet (ironically) we are inundated with information of every kind, every day. If you have any number of social media accounts, basic cable, or even access to the radio- you are more than likely bombarded with new scientific findings, obscure facts, and meaningless information cluttering your sound boards day in and day out. Although having endless amounts of information at our finger tips can be found convenient in most cases, it can also become a little intimidating on the same hand. When it comes to something as serious as our health, it’s important we use caution as we attempt to decipher the legitimate information from the nonsense.

 

Whether you have been dealing with a condition for years, or were recently given a new diagnosis, it is equally important to keep yourself informed in both cases. The medical world is an ever changing organism, with new and improved developments surfacing on a daily basis. Ask your doctor to keep you in the loop when it comes to any developments on your condition  or methods of treatment. When you make the choice to actively learn about your condition, it enables you to then take charge of your own health. Patients who are more active in maintaining their health, and learning about their condition, experience better health outcomes and at lower costs.

 

Never be afraid to get more than one opinion! More than one set of eyes and ears will provide you with a more well-rounded perspective to your unique situation, especially in the case of complex conditions, or uncertain results. Once you do have a clear verdict, make sure you understand the information you receive from your health care provider. It’s always helpful to repeat back what you hear them explaining in order to clarify that you are understanding them correctly. Keep the packet of written information provided to you upon check out for later reference, because chances are, you will think of further questions long after you’ve left the doctors office. Nearly 40-80% of the medical information given to patients by their health care providers is immediately forgotten, and half of the information that is remembered, is incorrect. In order to take charge of your health, you have to intentionally take charge of your knowledge about your condition.

 

It can be tempting to just get online and search fragmented questions pertaining to your condition, but what you will get in return is fragmented answers. When researching online, make sure you consult with your doctor about any information you find that may change the way you approach your condition. Understanding your condition fully is just one more step towards getting better, better!
