I have a wonderful testimonial that I am so excited to share!

For over TWENTY YEARS I have tried to donate blood. Every time I tried I was told the same thing "You are anemic, sorry". I was not even able to donate for my father's surgery, and I was a perfect match. I did what they recommended, drank grape juice, ate raisins, ate liver - but have always had low iron issues.

Yesterday a co-worker called and said that her father was having bypass surgery and could we possibly donate, especially type A positive. Well I'm A+ so I thought, let's see what happens after a year of drinking NingXia Red juice everyday and went to Lifeblood to try donating once again.

Imagine my excitement when as the nurse stuck my finger and said "Well, the blood looks good and dark". He then checked it and said "Perfect - you are good to go!". I was finally able to donate blood for someone in need!

I did well until I was almost done and experienced low blood sugar and almost passed out but still - I WAS ABLE TO DONATE!!! I immediately went back to the office and drank 3 oz of NingXia Red and it brought my energy level right back up and the dizziness went away and I felt more balanced.

I wish I had brought a couple packets of NingXia Red with me to drink while donating - I bet I would have done much better, and will certainly bring them with me the next time.

I know without a doubt that my being able to finally donate blood is due to my drinking NingXia Red and also due to the Young Living supplements such as Longevity and using my essential oils every single day.

Thank you Gary for giving us these (literally) life saving products!
