Nature’s Sunshine Success Stories
“I first got into supplements due to our oldest son’s learning challenge, which ultimately resulted in us home schooling him. At that time, I read a book by Dr. Zehr about nutritional supplements and learning disabilities. I initially spent $600 on supplements and the change in my son was phenomenal. Of course, this made my hunger for more information grow and so I continued to seek out more information. The more I learned the more I applied to my son’s learning challenge, and with prayer and supplement, his grades began to increase from grade 4 level to grade 8 level in only one year.” Read more (pdf)

“When I first heard about Nature’s Sunshine in 1979, I wasn’t doing well and pregnantwith my fourth child. Thus, I always had a lot of things to do, and not a greatdeal of energy. I then tried to take a few herbs. I was really interested in herbs and I wasimmediately interested in the power of herbs. What also impressed me was that I didn’tfeel any side effect after using them. Afterward, it didn’t take long for me to join NSP.This is how it all began, even though it was a little more difficult for me, since in its beginning,NSP’s documentation was only in English. The only book in French that I had onthis topic was called Curativement vôtre (Curatively Yours). It was sort of my bible backin those days. Little by little I became more involved. I saw that I now had more energy,and that I also obtained good results for my children. They almost never had to takeantibiotics, and they all ended up doing really well.” Read more (pdf)
