A Closer Look – Our journey to Orenda began many years before we actually signed the application to become a partner in 2002.
We were two busy health care professionals – John, a family physician, and Nina, a physical therapist. Oftentimes we were working over 60 hours a week, with zero time for each other, ourselves or our kids. We even had a live-in nanny for our small children.
Like so many people, it took a crisis of epic proportion to open our eyes to a better way of living. That came in the form of a catastrophic illness of our son, Ben, when he was six months old. Within the blink of an eye after diagnosis, Ben had lost a kidney due to cancer, followed by nearly 2 years of difficult chemotherapy. His traditional treatment left him healed, but with a devastated immune system. He had numerous serious infections of the bone, blood and sinus, requiring long courses of IV and oral antibiotics. That began our journey.
John began to search for answers to help Ben regain his health. Ultimately, that led John to the Fellowship in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona, Tucson. Over the course of several years, John studied with leading experts in many natural fields, and was one of the first medical graduates of the program. John’s medical practice began to change, incorporating more complimentary therapies, and culminating in the creation of an Integrative Wellness Center, with John as the Medical Director, working with other healing disciplines. John is also a Clinical Homeopath and senior instructor in Homeopathy.
Along our journey, we were presented with Orenda International. We had known one of the Founders, George Hall, and respected his vision and ethics. Through our evaluation of Orenda, we discovered that Orenda had three key components necessary for a company to be successful. First, Orenda had leadership with integrity and mission. Second, Orenda had cutting edge science in Optimal Aging, Immune science and now recently, Detoxification and Weight Loss. In fact, the Orenda products have the most advanced natural technology we have seen in all of our years of experience. Finally, the Orenda compensation plan rewarded everyone.
We came on board as the second distributors, and quickly developed a team, while our family began experiencing spectacular results from the Orenda products.
John: “I always have criteria I look for in products – they must be exceptional in quality, be efficacious, delivering the results my patients need, as well as a good value. When I saw the science in the products, I put all my other products aside and started on the Orenda products. Personally, I experienced results I honestly wasn’t expecting. I could feel the toll of years of stress and aging recede to the point that I enjoyed working out again. I even ran a half marathon and beat a personal best that I had set ten years previously. What is most remarkable for me is observing the changes in so many people that I care about.”
Nina: “I so appreciate the optimal health with Orenda. My energy was restored, the hormones balanced, and with the products I have a system in place for detox and weight maintenance. At age 60, I have gone through the journey of menopause without a blip- lean, healthy and active!”
It has not only been gratifying to help so many people with their health (we have over 20,000 people on our team), but the abundance of the Orenda business is amazing! After recognizing what Orenda had to offer, Nina committed 25 hours a week to the Orenda business, and in the first year, tripled her annual income as a physical therapist. Today, we have enjoyed the abundance of cumulative earnings over two million dollars with Orenda. Today, many leaders on our team are enjoying not only incredible health, but the financial abundance and time freedom that comes with leverage.
What Orenda has truly created for our family is the ability to honor our values- health, family, education and serving others. The Orenda business has created a sense of peace for our family – from two parents working long hours with little flexibility before this business, and the difference is incredible. We now have had choices – for both time freedom, as well as financial options. Nina enjoyed the benefits of TIME – never missing a high school or college tennis match with our sons Ryan and Ian, who have both shown passion and talent for the sport. Nina was able to travel all over the country as a proud, supportive parent, a luxury many parents only wish they could have.
We are a family who truly enjoys spending time together traveling- from trips abroad, to snowboarding over the holidays and golfing weekends – Orenda has been the vehicle that allows that choice. Not only has Orenda allowed our family time together and time for travel, the prosperity this compensation plan has provided our sons with extraordinary opportunities. Very early in our Orenda career, we were able to pay for Ryan’s first year college tuition at the private university of his choice with one Orenda check. Ryan has now completed Medical School, and is just finishing up his Medical Residency.
For Ben, after all of his struggles as a child, the Orenda products restored his health, and the Orenda income made it possible for him to pursue his passions. He has travelled internationally for research and Medical missions, and biked across America- all with the Orenda products supporting his health! Ben has also completed Medical School and is in his Medical Residency. Despite the rigors and the stress of Residency, he is healthy and vital.
Our youngest, Ian, is the Entrepreneur in the family, chasing his goal of business ownership. The Orenda income has allowed us to invest in Ian along the way.
As our team in Orenda grows, we know that the possibilities for our children, ultimately their families, and for our retirement are limitless into the future.
Over the last several years with Orenda, our journey could not have been possible without many people whom we respect and cherish. Thanks to our Founders, George and Bob for their ongoing commitment to product development, company innovation, and unswerving dedication to the Orenda mission. You’re solid as a rock, and we look forward to many sunsets together with your families. To our team, we couldn’t dream of a better group of people to call “partners”! We are continually inspired by each of your stories of product and business success. We look forward to helping each of you reach your dreams!
Finally, we’d like to thank our boys, Ryan, Ben and Ian for always believing in us as we pursue our dreams. We love you!
