Kim lived with depression for 23 years. After medication didn’t work, she decided to try to “just live with it”. Eventually, she discovered the connection between nutrition and mental health, and her life improved. This eventually led her to Truehope, and her life has never been better. Continue reading
Having supported people in the Truehope program for nearly 20 years has offered us a lot of insight. Switching to micronutrients from medication (or taking them in conjunction with each other) can be intimidating.
You don’t have to try it alone. Over 85% of clients who have used our one-on-one phone support reduced or avoided withdrawal symptoms, side effects, and uncomfortable adverse drug reactions when beginning the EMPowerplus Advanced program. Continue reading
EMPowerplus was first formulated nearly 20 years ago to naturally treat people experiencing stress caused by depression or other mood disorders. Since then, we have sold over 1 million bottles for use in treating non-clinical symptoms like stress caused by depression or other mood disorders.
Stress manifests itself in different ways, including sleeplessness, pain, headaches, and weight gain, and it may be accompanied by anxiety, racing thoughts, worry, or frustration.
As science gains greater insight into the consequences of stress on the brain, the picture that emerges is not a pretty one. A chronic overreaction to stress overloads the brain with powerful hormones that are intended for short-term duty in emergency situations. Their cumulative effect damages and kills brain cells.
It was once thought the brain was static, unable to grow or change. But extensive research and in-depth study of epigenetics has shown that it’s remarkably adaptable, able to create new neural pathways in response to stimulus in the environment. The brain can also create new tissue, neurons and neuro-peptides with direct treatment of micronutrient supplementation.
When your brain can draw from the 36 natural vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids found in EMPowerplus, your body can relax so you can live life instead of worrying about it.

The following account of Dr. Charles Popper’s initial experience with EMPowerplus is taken from testimony he gave as an expert witness in Truehope’s 2006 court victory over Health Canada. He testified that up to that time, he had assisted 100–150 of his own patients and consulted with other doctors on 300–500 more patients in the use of EMPowerplus.
When Kim was diagnosed with bipolar there were many things she didn’t know at the time: choosing between bipolar symptoms and medication side effects; giving up hopes, dreams, and goals; being the subject of stigma, shame, and isolation. That all changed after starting the Truehope program. Continue reading
Since we started our blog, one main focus has been to document the connection between mental health and nutrition. Dozens of studies have concluded that there’s a connection between a proper diet and positive mental health.
One possible reason for this link is that the body’s main neurotransmitters that regulate our mental health depend on the right balance of vitamins and minerals to provide the right conditions for their production and effectiveness.
Dopamine is one of those neurotransmitters. Continue reading
Earlier this week, New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman publicly announced that 4 American retailers—GNC, Target, Walgreens, and Walmart—had been selling store-brand herbal supplements in New York that didn’t contain what was on the label or contained substances that weren’t on the label.
