Alyson had a nervous breakdown when she was 16. Later, when she started having children, she noticed increasing mental health problems. By the time she had her fourth child, she went to her doctor about these issues. Her doctor diagnosed her with depression (which was changed to recurring major depression as time went on) and put her on medication. The medication removed emotion from Alyson’s life, and she felt like a zombie. At one point, she was taking 7 medications, but the depression never went away, and she found herself in and out of psychiatric wards. Then a friend told her about Truehope, and her life changed.


When he was in his 30s, Juan had his anxiety attack shortly after his father died. The anxiety persisted and was followed by depression and thoughts of suicide. His life fell apart as it became difficult for him to function. Conventional medicine offered little change. One day, Juan came across Truehope, and his life started to change.


Joleen’s depression set in during grade 8. In grade 10, she contracted an infection that left her chronically ill and unable to complete her high school education. The darkness of depression and chronic illness took her to a state of utter desperation. Joleen’s timely response to EMPowerplus has changed her life.


Years ago, a difficult time in Anne’s life led to panic attacks so severe she had to be hospitalized. For years, she struggled with managing her subsequent depression and anxiety with little success and resulting in hopelessness and suicidal tendencies. Then she found Truehope. Today, she feels incredible, fortunate, blessed, calm, centred, stable, and whole.


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.
