We spoke with the customer who wrote us the email below - to ask her permission to send the letter to medical professionals and patients alike. She said she would be honored, and thrilled if it helps just one person. Here is her email:
To Whom It May Concern:
I wanted to write to THANK YOU for making Unjury products and to share with you how UNJURY is making a HUGE impact on my and my family's life!!!
First my story:
A little more than a year ago, I was diagnosed with very early stage Esophageal Cancer which resulted in the removal of my esophagus and reconstruction of a "new esophagus" made out of my stomach muscle.
It has been a long recovery, but I knew from the beginning that nutrition was key to my success. Everything I read about the body's ability to heal pointed back to ingesting high levels of protein in my diet. Every dietitian that I spoke to addressed maintaining my protein levels. This was a challenge because of having to re-learn how to eat/swallow and identify what foods would settle well on what was left of my stomach.
I tried a plethora of protein supplements (ie. powders; liquids; frozen "treats"), ALL of which either left me nauseous and/or severely cramping, leading to dumping syndrome. Because I had to drink my shakes VERY slowly (8oz in 45 min) so as not to cause cramping/dumping syndrome, after just 10-15 mins all of the other protein powders would separate and coagulate into a nasty, undrinkable mess. My weight continued to plummet due to my inability to have consistent nutrition. To say the least, it was a daily battle that I struggled with from morning to night... and I was losing the battle.
Being 4+ months post-surgery, still struggling with being able to eat any small amounts of regular food, I was anxiously traveling by plane. Sharing light conversation with the woman seated beside me, somehow she started to share her struggle about staying successful to her bariatric surgery. Knowing that the surgery I had is likened to bariatric surgery since it left me with a very tiny stomach and similar nutritional demands, I, OF COURSE, was interested in her nutritional journey of protein supplements. I asked her what she used for protein supplements and she just laughed... and then she got serious! She said that she had tried EVERYTHING under the sun and NOTHING tasted right/was tolerable to her. We laughed about the waste of money and the variety of unused protein supplements that pile up in your pantry, refrigerator and freezer or get thrown away because you just can't tolerate them due to taste or consistency.
THEN, the greatest thing happened!!! This woman said that after about 2 years post her surgery, she had returned to her physician pleading for help to find a tolerable protein supplement to help her get back on track. He told her that he was having great success with a "new" product he learned about since her surgery called UNJURY. He assured her that his patients were having great success using it. She told me that she was able to acquire some samples, and it changed her life!!! She told me how UNJURY tasted like no other protein supplement she had ever tried before. She told me about the versatility in using the different flavors with low calorie drinks to sustain variety in her nutritional intake. She told me about the chicken soup and how that gave her a savory option... she swore by it and told me I should give it a try!!
Needless to say, I BELIEVE I was placed in that seat, next to that woman by NO coincidence!!! God intended for me to learn about UNJURY that day! After I got to my destination, I did my research and called UNJURY to talk about my situation and to place an order. The woman I spoke to at UNJURY was so helpful with ideas and gave me reassurance about your guarantee if I wasn't satisfied for any reason. What did I have to lose?? I placed my order and have been using UNJURY ever since!!!
Not only does UNJURY taste amazing, I can make a shake and take my time drinking it without it becoming a congealed mess!!! THAT IS HUGE!!!! No other supplement was able to do that!!! Although, I must say, because UNJURY tastes so good and it doesn't cause the severe cramping that other protein drinks do, I find myself consuming it much quicker :0)!!! The taste is delicious; the consistency is so palatable and on top of all that, I am able to take in 21g of protein + the protein in whatever I mixed it in... THAT IS HUGE!! Finally, I was able to increase my protein intake substantially in just an 8 oz shake!!! Amazing!!! I started to really turn around my overall feeling towards better health!
After having such success with UNJURY protein powders, I started looking at the vitamins that UNJURY offers on their website. I read through many of the client reviews of the different vitamins. Because my reconstruction is similar to bariatric surgery, which left me with similar specific nutritional needs, I decided to try the OPURITY® BYPASS & SLEEVE Optimized - Chewable. After a few weeks of consuming both the OPURITY vitamin and drinking UNJURY shakes daily, I couldn't believe the difference I felt in my energy level!! I was feeling stronger and stronger. At my post surgery DR visits, the medical staff would repeatedly remark on how healthy I looked and how well my incisions were healing!! After being on these products, all of my medical lab work is now coming back in the normal range regarding nutrition!! AMAZING!!
I find that my favorite flavors are Vanilla and Chocolate Classic!!! There is SO much that I can do with them!!! The Vanilla is especially versatile. Lately I have been making shakes by blending Toasted Coconut Almond Milk w a scoop of Vanilla UNJURY, a half of a frozen banana and some sugar-free coconut syrup.YUM!!!!!! Sometimes I add Matcha powder to increase the antioxidants since my diet is so limited in green vegetables. YUM!!! I really love making shakes with half a scoop of Vanilla and half a scoop of Chocolate Classic... very creamy light chocolate flavor!!! The combinations are endless!! Anyway you make it, UNJURY is so delicious!!!
Now my husband's story:
I know that UNJURY is being used for people with a variety of medical needs other than cancer. I have read the testimonies of many clients that use UNJURY for weight loss programs.
Many years ago, my husband had been on liquid weight-loss diets...unfortunately, without permanent success. One of the big problems with him staying on the liquid protein diet was the taste of the shakes and their smell. He said that he just got to the point where he couldn't tolerate them any more. He has observed my success with UNJURY over these past 13 months and he has heard me talk so positively about it. Recently, he has decided to gain control of his health with regard to his weight. His doctor told him to control is carbohydrate intake and to substantially increase his protein levels. Being frustrated with trying to increase protein without it effecting his carb/calorie intake, I encouraged him to try an UNJURY shake. What did HE have to lose? After a couple of swallows, he exclaimed how much better UNJURY tasted compared to the other weight-loss program shakes! He REALLY enjoyed the Chocolate Splendor flavor and has since started consuming a shake or two daily. As he put it, "this is a great way for me to increase my protein levels dramatically without a huge caloric swing!"
I know that UNJURY protein and OPURITY vitamins have been a major contributing factor in my recovery and just recently UNJURY is effecting my husband's weight loss journey!
I am so grateful for that woman sitting next to me on that plane!!
Knowing what a difference her sharing about UNJURY has made in my life, I share my story with others as well. I am telling my doctors about UNJURY and what a difference it has made... they see the difference... but I encourage them to share the UNJURY difference with their patients. I have told nutritionists about UNJURY!!! I have told friends who have compromised nutrition about UNJURY!!! I am sharing the UNJURY story with anyone who crosses my path. UNJURY is worth talking about!!!
With much Gratitude!
