When depression, anxiety and bipolar disease wreaked havoc in his family, Tony Stephan, a Canadian father and Latter-day Saint, desperately sought answers. His discoveries led to his subsequent formulation of a natural remedy for the broad range of mental challenges and mood disorders that affect so many in the world today.
Debbie, Tony’s wife of 23 years, had been diagnosed with bipolar affective disorder. She experienced extreme mood shifts and explosive behavior, eventually taking her own life, just as her father had done. Two of their children had the same bipolar diagnosis, and, even with medication and hospital visits, demonstrated extremely dangerous and destructive habits.
“I thought, there had to be an answer,” Tony says.
Eventually, he heard about Ear and Tail-biting Syndrome, which causes animals to become aggressive and hyper-irritable. When he learned this syndrome could be nutrated away, a light bulb went on.
Now, over the past 17 years, Tony has helped over 100,000 people in over 100 countries with the nutritional supplement he calls EMPowerplus Q96.
EMPowerplus Q96 consists of 36 essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants blended in a very specific manner.
In 2012, Tony teamed up with Scott Malone to help market his product. “EMPowerplus works by giving the brain the right balance of vitamins, and trace minerals on a regular basis,” Scott explains. “The key to EMPowerplus Q96’s effectiveness is a proprietary 96-hour micronization and nano-chelation process.”
“With an estimated $25 million of research on this product, the study findings are overwhelmingly positive. Yet, the personal stories are most impressive,” Scott says.
Kellie Schroeder, of Mesa, has a daughter with bipolar disorder. “After years of doctors, different meds, and hospitals, nothing we were attempting was helping her to get well, until Scott shared with us EMPowerplus.”
Her daughter, Erin, says, “I would be so consumed with depression that I could not think rationally about my life…. panic attacks would hit me so hard that I couldn’t control myself. … I couldn’t work. I couldn’t go to school.”
Kellie says her daughter is “living proof that this micronutrient does help. It has changed her life for the better. It is a miracle for our family AND she is expecting her first child.”
Mesa father, Mike Demke’s son was serving an LDS mission, but was so depressed he was unable to work and there was talk about sending him home. “Within two weeks of starting on the product, he was a different person, so much so that his Mission President noticed his dramatic improvement.”
Margo Johnson, also of Mesa, says their six family members faced challenges that ran the gamut from depression, to schizophrenic effective disorder, ADHD, autism and anxiety. “Things were so bad and we had dealt with them for so long… we were overwhelmed.” Now, with EMPowerplus Q96, “My home, my whole life has changed. I now know my family is going to be okay. My family, now, is whole and well and I am just so grateful.”
