EMPowerplus helped this man improve his OCD

EMPowerplus helped this man improve his OCD

A little over 5 years ago, New Zealand researchers published an article in the Journal of Anxiety Disorders, showing the results of a case study in which EMPowerplus helped a man with obsessive compulsive disorder.

A psychiatrist had diagnosed the man with OCD and Asperger’s disorder when he was 16 years old and estimated that he had had them for 3 years. He lived with high levels of anxiety, fears, obsession, and compulsion.

He started cognitive behavioural therapy, which mitigated his symptoms somewhat. After 1 year, he stopped the CBT treatment, and within a year, his OCD manifestations were worse than before he started the therapy. By this point, he had also become clinically depressed.

The man was now 18, and he started treatment with EMPowerplus, a natural combination of 36 vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids. He experienced no side effects and was committed to taking the recommended daily dosage. Continue reading

Nutrient boosting of medications

Two researchers specializing in exploring the connection between nutrition and mental health recently published a column online regarding the the effect that nutrients have on medications.

In their article, Drs. Bonnie Kaplan and Julia Rucklidge point out a 2008 issue of the Harvard Mental Health Letter that had evaluated nutrients with the potential to boost the impact of psychiatric medications.

Their response to the article is telling: Continue reading

New research: Staying with EMPowerplus benefits more than quitting

New research: Staying with EMPowerplus benefits more than quitting

Earlier this year, researchers in New Zealand published a follow-up to randomized controlled trials they completed in 2009 and 2010 in which they studied the effects of EMPowerplus in 80 adults with ADHD.

Researchers contacted all the original participants and had them complete clinician-rated questionnaires. Of those 80 adults, 72 participated.

In general, participants had experience regression in psychiatric function compared to the measures taken at the end of the trials, but they were still doing better than they had been at the start of the trials.

Researchers investigated the dominant treatment each participant had been taking since the end of the trial to determine its effect on the outcome.

Of those who had continued taking EMPowerplus, performed better than those who had switched to medication or had discontinued EMPowerplus.

This is great news for Truehope participants, showing that not only does EMPowerplus perform better than placebo in managing ADHD, continuing to take EMPowerplus has greater positive effects on mental health than discontinuing it or going back to medication.

This follow-up research is in line of other research that makes EMPowerplus the most research micronutrient formula in the world.

The house that Truehope built

In late 2013, Louise ZoBell, Founder and Executive Director of Dominican Starfish Foundation, posted on social media looking for donations to help build a new home in the Dominican Republic.

Dominican Starfish Foundation had been building a new home for Rafelo Marte at the time, and had met his brother Freddy when they had returned to the Dominican to check on the home’s progress.

Freddy’s home was in terrible shape, nothing more than a shack. But he was proud of what he did have and kept it neat. Continue reading

Peter’s success story: bipolar

I’ve been taking EMPowerplus for a little over a year. Since then, I’ve had no manic and no depressive episodes, and I have discontinued all psychiatric medication, including lithium and sleeping medications. I keep feeling better and better, particularly more and more relaxed.

I do not know anyone else who takes EMPowerplus, but I have to think an awful lot of people should give it a try, especially since there’s nothing on the label that makes it sound risky, and it seems that bipolar disorder is practically epidemic these days.

I have an extensive background in mental health, with graduate degrees from Harvard and U.C. Berkeley. I spent 25 years as a clinical social worker and never saw any results with bipolar clients like the results I’ve had from EMPowerplus.

Moreover, I really appreciate the people at Truehope who phone me regularly to check on how I’m doing and to make suggestions.
