"I have such a feeling of joy in me that I realize this is what it is like to actually live!"
"I am now living happier than ever and have nothing but excitement for my future. Things just get better every month on the EMPowerplus Advanced program. I would never have been in this place in my life had it not been for Truehope and all the very special people there who have nothing but love in their heart and a relentless desire to see me get well. They never gave up on me. How do you thank someone for such a selfless act? I guess beyond a sincere thank you, the best way is to make my life count and be the best person I can be. Thank you so much Truehope. Thank you for giving me the chance to pull my life out of the darkness.
God bless you!"

"There are so many ways in which EMPowerplus Advanced has helped our son. We now tell anyone and everyone about our success!"
"First and foremost, our son is HAPPY. It has been so long since we've seen him happy. This truly is one of the many great benefits of EMPowerplus Advanced. We have seen so much improvement in our son over the last six months that it is hard to tell of each and every success. But you should know that [our son] was picked as Student of the Month for May for the student that demonstrated the most improvement."
- Al and Lynda P.

"I am so grateful my mother learned about Truehope and took a natural approach to her illness."
"Doctors warned [my mother] never to get pregnant as she would make her illness not only unmanageable but put her baby at risk of severe deformation or even death, due to all the drugs she was taking. No matter how many drugs they tried nothing worked. Then she found Truehope. She has been on EMPowerplus Advanced ever since. It has allowed her to learn and grow as an individual, making positive changes in her life not to mention allowing her to give birth to 2 healthy children. My brother who is now 2 and a half, was born healthy just one year after my mom started EMPowerplus Advanced."
- Baby Anna
"For the first time in my life I feel in control of my mind."
"I am so thankful that the developers took the time and effort to make this available after it showed promise within their family."
"EMPowerplus Advanced has given me back my health and life and has allowed me to become a wife and mother!"
"My life was not a life. For many of those years I have little or no memory other than pain, both mental and physical – no memory of time with my three children or time with my husband. I began taking EMPowerplus Advanced vitamin and mineral supplement. With supervision, I weaned off of the drug-cocktail over several months and by continuing with the EMPowerplus Advanced supplement my mental and physical health improved rapidly and beyond belief. "
Truehope Participant Since 2001
"Life without EMPowerplus Advanced is unimaginable!"
"The darkness of depression and chronic illness took [me] to a state of utter desperation. Within weeks [of starting EMPowerplus Advanced] I was almost cured! I could concentrate again...I quit cutting myself and I could hold a job again!" Joleen’s moods stabilized and she is now working towards finishing her education. Joleen hasn’t missed a day of work in over a year and now lives on her own."These were things I only prayed and dreamed about doing a year and a half ago!"
"The Truehope program was my last hope for wellness, and wow – did it ever deliver!"
"It has been six years since I started taking the micronutrient treatment and I have only been hospitalized once briefly, during an exceptionally stressful period of time. I work hard to keep my life balanced, to take good care of myself, to take my EMPowerplus Advanced every day. There is no miracle cure – staying well requires consistent effort, and self awareness – but the Truehope program is as close as you can get to a miracle!"
- Kristy R.
"Within one month I noticed a difference in my thinking and how I felt."
"I have now been taking the vitamins for about a year and nine months, and I feel awesome. The second best thing that could happen to me, besides Truehope, is to know that my story could help someone that is going through what I went through. Please don't waste any more valuable time, like I did, thinking this will not work for you, because trust me it does. And the best part is, I am able to take care of my family and myself. I am enjoying life, my life and the people in it, once again. I am blessed to be here with my loved ones and I am thankful for that everyday."
Truehope Participant Since 2006
"The violent rages are no longer. The defiant behavior is gone. The mood swings are a thing of the past. The depression has been lifted. The anxiety has been forgotten. The bizarre behavior is no more. He's no longer this hyper, manic child that bounces from wall to wall. And the absolute best part: HE SLEEPS! It's a miracle straight from God!"
"Since the day my six-year-old son started the EMPowerplus Advanced vitamins from Truehope, our lives have changed in ways that are unimaginable. He has been 100 percent mainstreamed with a general education first grade class. As of November 2006 he no longer qualifies for Behavioral Services. The Emotionally Disturbed coding has been deleted. And he has made the A Honor Roll all year. He is on grade level or above grade level in every subject. This to me is amazing considering the chaos he was dealing with his first two years of school."
Truehope Participant since 2006
"EMPowerplus Advanced was a true gift from God for me. "
"To be able to walk, to sleep all night. To be calm and without anger. To communicate my needs. To be able to hold my wife’s hand. To be able to accept a hug from my grandson and love him in return. We take so much for granted. EMPowerplus Advanced has performed a true miracle for me."
- Chuck S.
"My journey toward mental wellness began February 12, 2003 with three EMPowerplus Advanced capsules. The next day I woke with a feeling of calm I have never before known."
"After four months on the program I was able to get and keep a part-time job and after a year started my own business. The micronutrients [in EMPowerplus Advanced] have literally given me a new life."
- Deborah F.
Truehope Participant Since 2003
"I used to wonder what it felt like to be truly happy. Now I know. Thank-you Truehope."
"I began taking the EMPowerplus... and gradually got better and better. It was exciting to me, as I started to really enjoy being a mom for the first time."
- Cara R.
"Joe and I were both bipolar once. We consider Stefanie to be our miracle baby."
"To have such a well and healthy child when both parents have a history of mental illness is a rare thing. Vitamins and minerals are small and simple things, but they work. While pregnant, I took EMPowerplus Advanced capsules, Truehope BMD tablets (which also eased morning sickness), and fish oils every day. I am taking full doses while nursing. The micronutrient treatment will then be added to the baby's soft foods. When keeping to the full dose on a regular basis, there are no signs of postpartum depression."
- Bronwyn S.
"I would have been another statistic without EMPowerplus Advanced."
"With my Truehope Success Coach and the strength of the vitamins I was able to become totally medication free. I am now med-free and am feeling more and more like my old self. I cannot ever thank Truehope and their wonderful success coaches enough for all that they have done for me."
- Ms. T
"When... I found EMPowerplus Advanced I couldn’t believe the amazing transformation in my life."
"The quality of life that EMPowerplus has granted my family cannot be adequately expressed in words. I am grateful for my children, but more so I am grateful that I can care for them and be a healthy, happy, functioning mom."
- Meredith S.
"So if you want a change for the better and control of your life again, then get in touch with Truehope and just be ready to write your success story soon thereafter!"
"This is a little story, a true story, about someone who is back on track, and you could be too. After running out of meds and no insurance to cover the cost, I called Truehope. One of the best decisions I have ever made! Ever! I have my life back with, get this, no side effects. Now with a clear mind I’m able to make better decisions and make better choices. I have a more positive attitude towards life and a lot more patience."
- Jose D.
Truehope Participant Since 2006
"I am now nearly symptom free!"
"About 2 and a 1/2 years ago [after starting EMPowerplus Advanced] I felt whole, happy and complete for the first time in 23 years. I feel I am full of energy and vitality and I feel I can take on the world where I once hid from life. I feel that nutritional support has not changed my life, but saved my life. About 10 months ago I started taking Coenzyme Q10 which really finely tuned me, and Omega 3s which I know are essential for mental health. I now sleep eight hours a night and eat regularly and I function through the day."
- Kim N.
Truehope Participant Since 2004
"It is no exaggeration to say that I have rediscovered myself and my life. Thank you Truehope for restoring my life!"
"The symptoms of the illness are gone, there are no side-effects to deal with, and I feel physically healthy and strong."
- Kim R.
"Within days, I started to notice a change – mood, attitude, energy."
"Now, with EMPowerplus Advanced [my wife] is focused, clear headed, goal oriented, and on most days vivacious and energetic – for the most part loving, living, and enjoying life again. Shannon is finally enjoying life, having fun, getting out and doing things."
Truehope Participant, Spouse and Parent
"True hope! The name is not a false one. Our family has been blessed with a hope that has turned our lives around!"
"We ordered the EMPowerplus Advanced and started talking with the wonderful people that would be not only Allicia's life-line back to sanity, but a wonderful support to her father and I as well. Allicia is taking EMPowerplus Advanced and knows that she can now function without the excruciating effects of the other drugs. We thank God that you exist."
- Jean R.
Truehope Participant Parent
"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 have had from EMPowerplus Advanced."
"I've been taking EMPowerplus Advanced for a little over a year. Since then I have had no manic and no depressive episodes, and have discontinued all psychiatric medication including lithium and sleeping medications. And I keep feeling better and better, particularly more and more relaxed."
- Peter S.
What I Know about EMPowerplus by Truehope that You Don’t - Bipolar Burble Blog
(Prereading: What is EMPowerplus by Truehope and Why am I Taking EMPowerplus?)
I’ve ordered EMPowerplus by Truehope now, and so, as a buyer, I know a few things that you can’t find out on their public site.
The Experience of Buying EMPowerplus by Truehope
The experience of buying EMPowerplus is exactly what you would think it would be – you go online and you buy it. There is one difference though, and that difference is that someone calls you to follow-up.
The morning after I ordered the product, the Truehope follow-up person called and started asking me personal questions and confirming information I had already given them. Then she asked my diagnosis. I hesitated as I don’t really think it’s any of her business, but then said, “bipolar.” Then she asked me what medications I was on. I told her I was on several and I didn’t want to enumerate them. She said something along the lines of, “our support staff can’t help you if they don’t have a full picture.” I asked her what her qualifications were to be asking such questions and she said that she simply, “set up the file.” Then I asked her what qualifications those support staff have. She said, “they’re educated on the product. ”
In other words, the follow-up person has zero qualifications and the support people who will be counselling you have zero qualifications also. (This is true, by the way, it’s just a call center.) And she wants me to hand over my personal, medical information to these people. I don’t think so.
Dangerous Drug Interactions of EMPowerplus
And keep in mind, Truehope wants you to call their support staff, “if you are on psychotropic medications to help you avoid dangerous drug interactions.”
Apparently these drug interactions are so “dangerous” as to require a disclaimer on the order page but not dangerous enough to be specified on the site nor addressed by people with actual, medical qualifications.
Does anyone else think that’s nutty? If they’re so dangerous, why wouldn’t they be listed on the site so you could determine whether or not to purchase the product? And why, exactly, would anyone allow a supplement to be sold that caused “dangerous drug interactions” without labelling?
(I’ll tell you why. I suspect it’s because they want to build a little file up about you so that they can sell you other products. A follow-up-follow-up person actually called too, twice, but I didn’t take the calls.)
(Health Canada, by the way, appears to hate these guys and has previously sued them and advised people with serious mental illness not to take EMPowerplus. They also have a record from 2007 that states, “Reports of adverse reactions in patients with serious mental health conditions suspected in association with use of prescription medications and EMPowerPlus — consumer information.” I would bet serious money on the fact that these “adverse reactions” were from people who stopped taking their meds.)
And note that when asked about side effects, the EMPowerplus literature says, “EMPowerplus produces no side effects, other than minor, temporary gastrointestinal upset in a few people.” So, no side effects but dangerous drug interactions for EMPowerplus?
Initial Truehope EMPowerplus Email and Documents
Alongside all of this I was sent a series of informational documents from Truehope about EMPowerplus. The documents were:
- A Truehope Participant Guide
- A Truehope Support Guide (for the person who will be supporting whomever is taking the EMPowerplus)
- A Candida Reference Sheet
- A Candida Self-Test
- A Candida Protocol
All that candida stuff is there so that if you supposedly have a “problem with candida” (yeast), you can address it by buying more of their products. And you have to do this because if you have a candida problem you won’t be able to absorb the nutrients from the EMPowerplus.
And oh, you don’t have to have any symptoms to have a candida problem. You just have to have done things like: taken broad-spectrum or acne antibiotics, crave sugar or carbs, feel fatigued or lethargic, been pregnant or about a million other things according to their self-test.
It should be noted that the Truehope Support Guide is actually longer than the Participant Guide. This seems purposefully manipulative – get the family member on-side so that if the person with the mental illness wants to stop taking the supplement, the loved one convinces them not to. It’s perfect marketing. As Truehope says, “Your job will be to keep the new Truehope participant stay on track . . .”
One final note before I go into these documents in detail, on page three of the Support Guide it says that, “A multi-center, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial using EMPowerplus for adults with bipolar disorder is now under way in Canada and the United States.” This is actually a lie. That trial was terminated unexpectedly in 2009.*

5 steps of faith
And now these three remain:
faith, hope, love;
but the love of them is greater.

Hope (hope) - one of the main Christian virtues, is the peace of the heart in God with the assurance that He constantly cares about our salvation and grants us the promised blessedness. Christian hope is an unshakable, calm and joyful expectation of future blessedness. nine0003
Hope is based on faith.
“For we are saved in hope. Hope, when he sees, is not hope; for if anyone sees, why should he hope? But when we hope for what we do not see, then we wait patiently” (Rom. 8:24-25).
The main object of Christian hope is eternal salvation. Hope encourages the spirit in temptations, inspires to exploits.
Hope is known only in the sorrow that has befallen. An unexpected event, a sudden loss, an illness of a loved one opens the eyes of a Christian - who he really hoped for. nine0003
Hope is spoken of in various places in the New Testament. Here are some of them: hope comes from experience, and experience comes from patience (Rom. 5:4), hope must be maintained through patience and comfort from the Scriptures (Rom. 15: 4), Jesus Christ is the hope for Christians (1 Tim. 1: 1 ), the whole creation waits with hope for the revelation of the sons of God (Rom. 8:19).
Not every hope is recognized as a virtue, along with faith and love, just as not every faith (after all, even the demons believe (James 2:19)), and not any "love", but only charitable. In essence, Christian hope is unthinkable without sincere, genuine faith, and true faith without sacrificial love for God and neighbor (Matthew 22:37-39). It is faith, hope and love that express the general and personal attitude of a Christian to God.
Within the framework of the Orthodox dogma, the most important religious truths are outlined and revealed, the knowledge of which is necessary for the formation of a correct idea of God, His attitude to the world, the world itself, the vocation and destiny of man. By the action of love, a Christian strives for the closest spiritual unity with God and his neighbors. Hope serves as the most important motivating factor, an incentive to live in accordance with faith, in love. nine0003
If faith were not accompanied by hope, but represented only the knowledge of dogmas, it would be perceived by a person at the level (although higher, but only) of philosophy. What would in this case stimulate him to pray, to participate in the Church Sacraments, in the life of the Church in general? An exceptional sense of duty, duty? And how could he fully, freely, willingly strive for those highest blessings, which are promised in Divine Revelation, if he did not have hope? nine0003
Hope for the Providence of God helps a person to fight current difficulties, overcome suffering and sorrow. The hope for the resurrection alleviates one of the strongest human fears - the fear of physical death, and alleviates grief at the loss of loved ones. The hope of inheriting the Kingdom of Heaven served Christians as a consolation during the most difficult trials, enduring torture and torment.
The extreme degree of loss of hope - the state of hopelessness - is fraught with despair. In despair, a person drops his hands, his mind and will are darkened. He becomes an easy prey for crafty demonic forces. Despair is often the cause of the development of suicidal mood. nine0003
