Over the ensuing weeks, with Tess (the Co-op's former Director of Marketing) preparing to take a job in Seattle, Cindy and the rest of the team created a position with me that combined elements of Tess' role with an expanded vision -- that of bringing even greater value to the Co-op's members through a variety of interactivity, including video, radio, and other educational and social interactions. Cindy came up with a title for the position -- "Chief Community Officer." And I love that title, because nothing makes me happier than being part of creating and supporting a growing, healthy community.
As I prepared to come on board, the more I learned about the Co-op, the more enthused I became. You see, back-tracking just a bit, Cindy, who's a long-time friend, introduced my wife Lila and me to the Co-op several years ago. Our first product purchase was the very first formulation of Constant Health, which Cindy had recommended.
While the flavor has improved over the years, I have to say that nothing will top the amazement I found about five days into taking Constant Health. Due to a rigorous schedule of international business travel, I had found myself quite fatigued and my immune system was certainly compromised. The doctor had recently given me a wake up call at my last physical (my PSA levels were up significantly elevated, my lymph glands were growing more enlarged, and I had a genunine concern that I could be dealing with cancer again). Well, as mentioned, five days into my Constant Health regimin -- two scoops of Constant Health for the first week and then one scoop after that -- I began to feel a noticeable change. I told my wife, Lila, that I felt like the "real me" again -- vital, healthy, energized.
So Lila and I finished out the first large bottle of Constant Health and then, because I just had to know for sure, we didn't purchase another bottle. I was going to test the results. A week went by and I got busy with my work-a-day world. By the end of the week, however, I remember looking in the mirror and saying, "Man, I'm dragging again." The next day we picked up another bottle of Constant Health and dove back into our routine. Before long I was feeling perky and alive and we haven't stopped ordering it since. Constant Health has now become part of a regular healthy diet that now includes a series of other foods and supplements that I had originally learned about through Bill Henderson's book and website. (And yes, gratefully my PSA scores fell back into line and my lymph glands stood down from high alert.)
We've since stocked up on a variety of products from the Co-op and continue to be amazed at the great prices and the wonderful quality and service. And now, as I begin an even deeper relationship with the Co-op, the team and its members, I'm honored to be a part of something that has a purpose that's genuinely elevating and life affirming. I Iook forward to learning more about you as time goes on and I certainly invite you to continue to join us in making Our Health Co-op an even more vibrant and remarkable community.
Peace, Love, and Good Health to you,
Chief Community Officer
Our Health Co-op, Inc.
