The Truehope Program of Supplementation and Support uses Empowerplus™, which
has been formulated specifically for this program. Required dosage differs from
participant to participant. A Truehope Assistant will advise you on a reasonable starting
level of the supplement. Remember, the supplement is based solely on nutrition and is
not a drug so you may be flexible in finding a dosage that works for you.
Although Empowerplus™ in general is extremely well tolerated, occasionally mild
stomach upset or nausea can occur. Be sure to take the supplement with food to
minimize the chances of stomach upset.
Occasionally, participants may also experience headache, loose stool or diarrhea,
flatulence and/or constipation. A small number of participants have reported mild
excitability or inability to sleep when the supplement is taken too late in the evening.
Because of the interaction between the supplement and medication, side effects of the
medication are often thought to be side effects of the supplement. Completion of Step
Three of this workbook will help to clarify the root of the symptoms and side effects.
Although certain disorders may respond faster than others, participant response times
can vary dramatically. For example, a participant with six or seven limiting factors will
likely respond much slower than a participant with no limiting factors.
Please understand that all participants who are medicated or severely ill upon entering
the Truehope Program will have some degree of difficulty in recovery. Our support
staff have been trained and provided with information that is designed to assist you as
you go through the process of healing. Utilize all of the resources available to you and
be sure to establish a good personal support system with a friend or loved one who can
go through the process with you.
Restoring health is a process that takes time. Remember, you did not get sick overnight.
Give your body a chance to heal and balance. The results are worth the wait.
