How I Discovered Nutrition Matters


When I was in college, my grandfather died of cancer.

After eight months of chemotherapy and Hospice, he passed away in his home.

I was there the morning they took away his lifeless body.

A few years later, a friend of mine died of leukemia when he was only thirty-two years old.

A high school math teacher and baseball coach, he left behind a wife who was eight months pregnant.

Then after being hooked up to an oxygen machine for eight years, my father died of cancer.

No longer able to work, my dad struggled to do the things you and I take for granted, such as getting out of a chair or going to the bathroom.

He was frustrated and miserable in what should have been his golden years.

After these experiences, I decided I did not want to end up like that.

How I Discovered Nutrition Matters

I have a good friend named Janice Gravely. By all rights, she should be pushing up daisies.

By the time she was seventy-five years old, Mrs. Gravely had several diseases that often go along with advanced years.

In fact, her health was so bad her family considered getting a full-time nurse.

Then one day a friend educated her about health and nutrition. So Mrs. Gravely changed her diet and added BarleyLife® to her daily routine.

It took two years, but gradually, she turned her health around - and never did get that nurse.

Today she is ninety-seven years old and still going strong. This is her story.




Janice Gravely is a graduate of UCLA and an international speaker. She is author of the book, "Won't Somebody Help Me!", a biography of how she miraculously crash landed, after her husband died at the controls of their airplane - one she did not know how to fly. Her story was heard on Paul Harvey and published in Reader's Digest, Guideposts, and numerous other publications.

How My Wife Discovered Nutrition Matters

In 1991, through a routine eye exam, my wife discovered she was nearsighted. She had to wear glasses to drive a car, go to a movie or watch a ball game.

A few years later, after we were married, Laura started juicing and taking BarleyLife®.

Then early one morning, while driving to work, everything was blurry. Laura thought her eyesight had gotten worse.

When she took off her glasses, to her surprise, she could perfectly see.

It’s been eighteen years now and she still does not need to wear glasses.
