Why would you NOT re:iimmune?

Why Wednesday

Paula_Thompson

“A better question is “Why would you Not re:iimmune?”

I have suffered from IBS since I was a teenager, I know how important “gut health” is so when I heard about re:iimmune I knew I had to try it.  I have used it for a couple years and I love it.  Every morning I drink a full glass of it, so it helps rehydrate me and the probiotics keep my gut in check. Since starting on re:iimmune I have not had any IBS issues, even in situations that would otherwise cause a flare up. I also have shared the product on numerous occasions with my elderly parents when they have had the flu and or have to take antibiotics and it has helped them recover faster and like me, my Dad thinks the salty flavor is great.  So, why re:iimmune…because it is all about taking care of yourself, being healthier, and living an active life style with NO side effects.”  –Paula T.

IBS is one of many gut related disorders that make life miserable for countless individuals, in fact IBS affects between 25 and 45 million people in the U.S. and that’s just one gut related disorder among many. There are diet regimes and medications that help alleviate the daily discomfort that goes along with most of these digestive disorders, while re:iimmune® is here to help boost your progress, and pitch in some extra aid on the especially challenging days. Hydration is a key component in maintaining a healthy intestinal tract, so naturally the Clinical Strength Hydration™ found in a glass of re:iimmune®, combined with its intestinal immune support formula, provide a safe and easy way for you to get better, better™The L-Glutamine in our intestinal immune support formula works to rebuild the delicate tissue specifically found in your intestinal lining, while the ginger root extract soothes nausea and aids in decreasing inflammation. One of the most important things you can do for your body when you’re dealing with a digestion upset is to add a pre and probiotic blend to your diet, re:iimmune® combines 14 different probiotic strains with one essential prebiotic (food for the probiotics to live off of). Probiotics will allow your body to produce the good bacteria your digestive system requires in order to function properly.

We love hearing each persons story!

We’re still a small team at this point, but we have big ideas, and knowing that re:iimmune® is changing lives is the motivation that keeps driving us forward. This is Dr. Miller’s passion, this is our passion as a team- to Make People Better and to continue hearing stories of how re:iimmune® is aiding this mission in a safe and sustainable way!

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!

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™!

Shake it Off!

Why Wednesday 

lezley_Dhonau“After a 4 month run of colds, flu, stomach ache and sickness- I felt unable to shake off the last of it each time to be able to fully recover. I then got hit with oral thrush which really told me my guts were not in a good way and I suspected I was chronically dehydrated too. With just the first few mouthfuls of re:iimmune I feel uplifted and more energized. It’s like drinking a fresh coconut…you know it is good – it feels like it is instantly boosting your health!  I changed the food I eat to clean out my system, but the re:iimmune has been a key part of recovering fully and resetting my gut to a healthier state, and no cramping. I am passionate about only putting natural foods in my body and re:iimmune fits this need for me. It is now a firm addition to my medical kit.” -L. Dhonau
Those first few hints of a cold or flu normally send you running for the medicine cabinet with determination. You tell yourself “I will not let this slow me down!” If you begin to fight it early on, you just might be fortunate enough to kick the infection before it’s got you stuck to your bed for a week or so. Although, when an infection does take up roots, it may send you on a downward spiral that can last weeks, or months before you fully recover. When you eventually do recover, you are often left with a compromised immune system, and the after effects that most common symptom relievers leave behind. Chronic illness patients can attest to the fact that feeling ill for long periods of time can feel discouraging, but don’t give up. After you’ve conquered an illness, it’s important to remember that your immune system has taken a hit and will be left more vulnerable to further infection even after your symptoms have cleared up.
The illness recovery formula in re:iimmune® contains just what your body needs in order to shake off an infection, or infections. Hydration is a key component to your body’s ability to create healthy cells and a strong immune system. Often times, when you’re experiencing cold and flu symptoms, drinking fluids is easier said than done, and your hydration levels drop as a result. The ginger root in re:iimmune® helps to soothe an upset stomach as the Clinical Strength Hydration® Formula, and multi strain pre and probiotic blend, get to balancing out your body’s hydration and intestinal immune support needs. Since re:iimmune® is sugar free, and doesn’t contain toxic coloring agents, your body won’t have to spend it’s energy figuring out what to protect itself against and what to use to heal itself. Since nearly 70% of your body’s immune system is located in  your intestines, our intestinal immune support formula boosts the very core of your immune system while helping you get back up on your feet.
Take a tip from our friend in the U.K.- keep re:iimmune® as a firm addition to your medical kit, and get better, better™!

You Don’t Have to be Sick to re:iimmune

Why Wednesday

 

“FortunatPaula_WhyWednesdayely, we haven’t had chemo, radiation, or an especially severe case of bad “gut health.”  However, it is possible that we represent a large percentage of those who use re:iimmune on a daily, weekly or bi-weekly basis for our general health and comfort.  I first became aware of the product about two years ago when my husband had a rather long and unexplained problem with his tummy.  He drank one dose a day for about a week and just that quickly he felt so much better.  We have experienced the usual upsets typical of 90 and 80 year olds, but since discovering re:iimmune the difference is that we know what to do about it now.”  -Paula Ahlborn

Here at Make People Better headquarters, we often hear the question: “do I have to be sick to drink re:iimmune®?” Of course not! The truth is, I don’t know a single person who wouldn’t benefit from Clinical Strength Hydration® and Intestinal Immune support. Drinking re:iimmune® on a regular basis is a wonderful way to build up your immune system, and feel better, better™ . The Zinc and 275mg of ginger root in re:iimmune® give your body an extra immune boost, and also aid in reducing upset digestive patterns, and soothing nausea. Ginger alone packs a powerful punch in conjunction with generalized health, you can read more about that here.

We regularly hear from our faithful customers and friends that drinking re:iimmune® every single day has made a definite improvement on their quality of life, and for numerous reasons. Moment of truth: I personally live, eat, and breathe this stuff, but even I don’t remember to drink it every single day, yet, as soon as I start to feel sluggish or physically off, I crave it immediately! Moral of the story is that your health journey is yours, and it will be unique for each individual. As a health conscious person, you’re surely going to attempt to drink enough water in a day, eat foods that promote a healthy digestive pattern, and possibly even supplement with a probiotic formula on occasion. The beauty of re:iimmune® is that it’s truly the whole package in one tiny packet. For the days when you haven’t had time to sit down (much less drink an adequate amount of water), for the days that you cave and  wind up eating that one thing you know your body will not thank you for later, for the days that you just want to lay your head down on your desk and call it quits, re:iimmune® just might be the pick up you need! As for Paula and I, we sure think so. Until next Wednesday, Get better, better™!

Take Your Medication

If you’re anything like me, you become a little leery when you’re prescribed a new medication. What are the side effects, and the long term consequences of this medication? Are these consequences worth the foreseeable benefits? Is it even the right medication for your unique condition? Is it worth the financial cost, or is it covered by your insurance? These are all common questions, especially for those of us who aren’t use to taking prescription medications on a regular basis.

There is a lot that goes into making sure you get the most out of your prescribed medication. First, and most obviously, getting your prescription actually filled is step one, taking your medication on time, and then making sure you have a good understanding of the directions you’ve been given. It’s important to ask your healthcare provider the correct questions and honestly voice your reasons for hesitation. Often times when we choose to take our medication choices into our own hands without consulting our doctor, we wind up adding greater complications to our illness and in turn, create for ourselves a lower quality of life.

As intimidating as a new medication can appear, it’s vital that you communicate with your health care provider, and do everything you can to reach a mutual agreement on a plan that works both for your lifestyle and your condition, which supports medication adherence. The statistics speak for themselves, medication non-adherence has been found to lead to nearly 20% of preventable adverse drug events in the community setting, and 25% of premature nursing home admissions. Not only that, but it can easily lead to the progression of diseases that would otherwise be preventable, extra doctors visits, and the possibility of premature death.

If you don’t know where to start, or how to keep yourself on track with your medication, here are a few tips from us to you:

Organize– Pick up a pill organizer from your local pharmacy to eliminate any missed or doubled doses.

organize your medication

Ask– Make sure you are taking the best medication for you by doing research on your own, and then taking any questions you have to your trusted physician.

consult your doctor about your medication

 

Record– If you feel like you are experiencing adverse reactions or side effects to your new medication, write them down as they come up so that you can accurately consult your doctor.

record your medication

Remind– Set a reminder on your phone or clock to take your medication at the designated time each day.

set reminders to take your medication

 

Accountability– Talk about your medication use with the people closest to you. Let your significant other, your care giver, or your house mates know about your medication and ask someone you trust to check in with you regularly.

caregivers and medication

re:iimmune®– Ultimately, most medications do in fact take some type of toll on your body’s hydration and intestinal health. Make sure you pair a daily dose of re:iimmune® with your new medication to help ease any possible side effects. Between the ginger for nausea reduction, zinc for immune boosting strength, pre and probiotic blend for intestinal health, and the Clinical Strength hydration formula, you’re sure to feel 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!

What’s New About the Flu…

The truth is, the flu is old news. Every year we are blasted with warnings of the approaching flu season, ads on TV of sniffly moms and dads, construction workers miserably trudging around in the cold, children with thermometers poking out of their mouths and disheveled business men trying to make it through their work day- directing us to the latest and greatest symptom reliever. The ugly truth is that the flu isn’t just another seasonal inconvenience, but a serious problem—in fact, thousands of people die each year from flu related symptoms which pose the greatest threats to children and elderly adults.

Dog with a bag of cold water on his head

When the flu hits you, or your family, what is your plan of action? Most likely you run to the medicine cabinet for a variety of decongestants, cough remedies, hot teas and vitamin C. While immediate relief from your symptoms aids in allowing you to rest more comfortably (which is vital to recovery) we also have to focus in on the foundation of our health: the immune system. There are many commonly referenced immune boosters that we’ve all become familiar with, but did you know that 75% of your immune system resides in the digestive system? Without giving your digestive system the proper fuel it needs to restore itself, your body won’t have the strength it requires to ward off infection properly.

Our bodies are made up of nearly 90% bacteria, both good and bad. When your health is under attack it’s best to fight back by strengthening your good bacteria with pre and probiotics, essential nutrients and Clinical Strength Hydration™. Without proper hydration levels, your cells won’t have the strength they need to do their jobs efficiently and ward off illness. The same goes for your digestive system, without the power to ward off the bad bacteria residing in your gut, your immune system is left in a vulnerable position.

Our suggestion? Hold on to your favorite relief product, settle in with some “feel good” movies, steep a pot of hot tea, and mix yourself up a glass of re:iimmune®! With it’s multi-stain blend of pre and probiotics, Clinical Strength Hydration™, a powerful punch of L-glutamine that works to rebuild your intestinal tissue, and ginger root that soothes and repairs your digestive flow, your immune system will thank you. re:iimmune® was specifically formulated to help you get better, better™!
