On July 10, 1978, 6 1/2 long years ago, I became ill. It seemed to happen overnight. When I left my office on that day, I didn’t realize that 1 would never return or that I was just starting two of the most frightening experiences of my life.
My symptoms were: face was swollen, my extended fingers were so swollen that they touched the sides of each other - they looked like sausages. I had muscle pain and ached all over. Within days, my feet and ankles swelled to the point that I could hardly walk, my eye-sight diminished almost immediately, no appetite, hair falling out, rapid heartbeats (I thought I was having a heart attack). Any exertion caused utter complete exhaustion - my days began to follow the same schedule - take a shower, take a nap; fix breakfast, take a nap; answer the phone, take a nap; visit with a friend, take a nap (sometimes while they were still visiting!).
My doctor felt that I may have a collagen disease, but tests were inconclusive. My husband took me to Mayo Clinic twice, again, tests were inconclusive. No one seemed to have any answers - at least none that they were sharing with me. I started reading medical books and case histories, but had to stop as I was showing symptoms of everything in the book.
I changed doctors on the local level, and finally (almost 18 months later) we had several diagnoses. “Lupus” - “Raynaud’s Syndrome” - “Camel Tunnelism”. - . nothing I had ever heard of-couldn’t be too bad, right? Wrong. I didn’t feel any better, but at least I knew why Auto-immune disease, my body was its own enemy. The swelling was from inflammation throughout my body -don’t forget, it had an 18 month head start and to counteract the swelling, my doctor administered Cortisone treatment. It didn’t help much with my disease, and the side effects were horrendous. First side effect, which I had been warned would happen, was a rapid weight gain. Fifty two pounds in six months!! How’s that for rapid? I was still exhausted and could barely walk.
My life had been totally turned around. I went from an energetic, “on the go” individual mother of five, grandmother of one, to a near invalid. I had to retire from a job that I loved -Executive Secretary of the Chicago Marriott O’Hare Hotel. - AND THAT MUST HAVE BEEN THE GOOD NEWS!
Three years later, on March 28, 1982, my 18 year old daughter, Meg, was involved in an automobile accident. A backseat passenger, she had a head injury and lay in a coma for two months. At that point, my stress level went through the roof. It took me at least that long to scrape myself off the ceiling. We never left her We were told that she would die. Then, when she didn’t die, we were told that she would be a vegetable. It was then that I discovered the doctors didn’t know any more about brain damage than I did. In fact, I had the advantage, I loved her! We talked to her - we helped to pattern her - we stimulated her. Our efforts paid off-she started the long slow process of coming out of the coma. We had to teach her how to eat, talk, brush her teeth, walk - it was like having a 125 lb. newborn. I don’t need to tell you - THIS WAS THE BAD NEWS!
During all this time, I was barely making it. I seemed to be on a merry-go-round that wouldn’t slow down, and I couldn’t get off’. I was trying to learn as much about Lupus and head injuries as I could. I’ve always felt that if you’re going to live with a killer, you should get to know him pretty well, it was about this time that I learned about Vitacel GH3. I admit I was grasping at straws, but nothing seemed to be helping me. I went to a meeting/seminar, not expecting much. I listened and watched as a lot of people got up and gave testimonials of how GH3 had helped them. I heard about high blood pressure, depression, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, colon problems.
HARD TO BELIEVE THAT ONE SUPPLEMENT WOULD DO SOMETHING FOR SO MANY VARIED ILLNESSES? And yet, the people seemed to be sincere. I was assured that it wouldn’t hurt me and that it might help. I’m a skeptic, but felt that if GH3 did just one quarter for me what it seemed to do for the people at the seminar, it was worth a try. I borrowed some tablets, placed an order and slowly began my health turn around.
I was so busy with Meg that in the beginning I didn’t realize any difference. But, by the end of three months, I noticed I wasn’t so tired. I wasn’t taking naps each day. Sometimes I would go for two weeks without having to take a nap. It was so gradual, I didn’t even know when it happened. I was sleeping soundly during the night after many years of restlessness. Some of my sense of humor was back, I wasn’t so depressed. Within a year my eye-sight was better. I never used glasses prior to the Lupus flare, but couldn’t read anything without them after my illness. My hair is thicker and fuller and I lost sonic the gray (a bonus!). No more elevated temperatures, no more leg cramps, no more pain in the muscles and joints. I function very well in all areas.
I very slowly weaned myself off Cortisone (an action I don’t advocate for anyone). I was off cortisone for almost a year before I discussed it with my doctor. He didn’t argue with success. The real kicker came when I realized that it had been almost a year since I had seen the doctor. I made an appointment and he went over me thoroughly - several days later he called with my test results. All tests were normal. I was elated. He was amazed!
Meg also takes Vitacel and it has helped her depression. She made three attempts to destroy her life prior to GH3
and has made none since. She was told that she would never walk without an aid (cane or crutches). She walks by herself They said that what she didn’t have back within a year, she would never get back. She is still progressing. She handles her own checkbook, does her own shopping, is starting to drive - and is alive and intelligent.
I realize that we all take our daily life for granted. We always know when we were happy, and we always know when we did feel good. It’s quite a shock when “feeling good and being happy” disappear!
I still go to meetings and I still hear people tell how much GH-3 had helped their arthritis, etc. GH3 works at the cellular level and seems to get the job done. THIS IS THE ONLY LIFE WE GET - AND THIS IS THE ONLY BODY WE GET TO LIVE IT IN. DO YOUR BODY A FAVOR, GIVE IT Vitacel GH3.

A neighbor, Lorraine Phelps, noted my improvement and introduced me to Vitacel GH3, which I started taking in May, 1984. It required three months for the hip and thigh pain to disappear and somewhat longer for the other ailments. The effect on high cholesterol is still in a trial period. Now, I have ceased the use of all medications for arthritis as well as Tagamet for stomach distress and anti-histamines (taken for seven (7) years). The eczemaon my fingers has disappeared plus I do not suffer muscular cramps on my legs of soles of my feet. I feel great! In October and November of 1984, I spent a month in Australia and New Zealand without problems.
Thanks to all of those involved in producing and telling everyone of Vitacel supplements. . I, for one, will be forever grateful for the boost to a comfortable life, free of pain and health problems and without all the side effects of other treatments.

I was first introduced to GH3 in the fall of 1982. Ron and Marcie Abraham of Seattle sent us information about GH-3 and told of all the wonderful things it had done for Margie. I read the information (I thought with an open mind). “Baloney” I said, and filed the material in “File 13.” I felt that there wasn’t a product in the entire world that could do that much for that many different ailments without it being a drug. In the fall of 1983, we traveled to Seattle to visit Ron and Marcie, and I became a believer! It had been three years since our last visit, and I could not believe the change in Marcie! Vitacel had given Marcie a new lease on life, and I felt it was worth a try.
I wanted to see if GH3 would do anything for my bursitis. The pain from the bursitis was so bad, it was very difficult to lift my arms in the morning to brush my hair. I feel very strongly against drugs, so I resigned myself to the fact that the pain was something that I would just have to live with. Sleeping was difficult because there wasn’t a painless position to be found. I would sometimes awaken with a terrible pain, and my right shoulder muscle would be locked. I couldn’t move. My husband would have to grasp my wrist and jerk my arm to unlock my shoulder. If my shoulder muscle would lock when my husband was working (he works nights), I would have to grit my teeth, slide to the edge of the bed, fall to the floor and fling my shoulder into the unlocked position.
Five days into Vitacel vitamin therapy, I enjoyed the first night of restful sleep in years! The pain was bearable! It was into the second month of Vitacel that the pain of the bursitis disappeared and has not returned. It’s beautiful!
I began Vitacel GH3 because of my bursitis, but other wonderful things have happened too. When I was about five years old, Iran my arm through a wringer of a washing machine. The arm went through the wringer completely to my shoulder until my mother rescued me. There were no broken bones, but the muscles in my lower arm were severely damaged, leaving me with a lumpy arm. As I got older, the arm would ache when the humidity rose, and it would sometimes go numb, causing me to drop whatever I was holding. Thank God, it was never a cup of hot coffee! There has been no numbness or ache in the arm in the past year.
For the past 19 years, I have been allergic to the sun. I had to cover all exposed skin before venturing outdoors. The allergy would cause bumps that would itch, break open and leave sears. It was really miserable. I read a GH3 testimony where relief from allergies was experienced and I decided to test myself I ventured out into the hot Montana summer sun with a lot of skin exposed, worked in the yard all day, and nothing happened! No bumps! Later that evening, some bumps did appear, but they didn’t itch and they left no scars! Maybe in the summer of 1985 the bumps won’t even appear. I can hardly wait! The entire summer of 1984 was a repeat of my first attempt to see if GH-3 helped my allergy. It was great!
I can’t say enough for Vitacel GH3. I’ll never be without it. We figure that the the cost of GH3, is about the price of a dinner out a month. So we’ve decided that feeling great is worth the price of one less dinner out during the month.

MUSCLE STRENGTH IMPROVEMENT IN ELDERLY
GREGORINNE K. CHUNG
MUSCLE STRENGTH - Grandma’s back and stomach muscles were really shot AND SHE WAS EXPERIENCING SEVERE MUSCLE PAIN. Things like getting her out of bed, putting her in or out of the car and even taking a bath on a special chair was quite difficult as she would always say, “I cannot” or “I’m falling.” Now she’s able to hold herself enough so she can get out of bed by herself, get into the car and take a bath with less help.
Are we excited about it? You bet. Things that our family lived with for years began to reverse itself within a few weeks. Even if it took a few months, it would still be worth every cent a hundred times over!
You’ll never know unless you try it for yourself and see what it can do for you and your loved ones. I’d be happy to talk to anyone concerning my experiences as I’d only be too happy to help.
Here’s to your great health!!!!

What I have to share with you is nothing short of an awakening! My sister, who has a brain injury from birth; my roommate, who has severe cerebral palsy; and myself, who suffers from arthritis, phlebitis, colitis and severe dermatitis (that I feel has progressed to psoriasis), as well as having had several bad back injuries, all began taking GH7 in February of 1988. We all noted remarkable changes in our lives. We felt better in every way. We had more energy, needed less sleep, had no more bouts with depression, experienced no more pain from arthritis, and my phlebitis disappeared. I had no more bouts with colitis, and a bonus . . . my hair started coming in black again! Friends noted how much brighter my sister was and how well she was progressing. Indeed! She progressed from February to December through two complete developmental stages and is continuing to progress. We felt so good that it was easy to forget how rotten we had felt before GH7.
When money began to be short and we were scraping to be able to afford to move to a better location, we let ourselves off the GH7 and had been off it since December Oh, what a mistake that was. Our move was the most horrible of all we could imagine. The stress was greater than it had ever been before. My roommate mentioned to me, “It’s too bad we got off GH7. Oh, how right she was. It was then that we realized how much we had given up when we let it go. We will never be without it again!
My roommate’s balance improves and she had no more cramping of her muscles and no more pain from her arthritis. My sister did not complain of hurts either. The memory problem that my sister and my roommate had was greatly improved, and so was mine! I also had people who had not seen mc for ages tell me how much younger I looked. And they had remembered me from six or so year ago! I know, now, that we will make sure we have GH7 on hand, always. God really blessed us when my friend introduced me to GH7 and we don’t intend to be without those blessings again. We are sharing it with our neighbors here in our new place, and we hope to see their success with GH7 too.
Thank you, Dr. Koch, for producing such a fine and wonderful product. I was sorry to learn that Dr Ana Aslan, the discoverer of Gerovital H3, the forerunner of the improved Vitacel GH7, had passed on. It would have been nice if she could have lived to see GH3 acclaimed, as well as learned what Dr. Koch had developed by expanding and improving on her formula. I believe that its true value should be known World-Wide. I am very happy, however, that the demise of Dr Aslan has not inhibited our access to GH7. Thank you again.
