Joe Bower made a dramatic change in his life after reading Dennis Wong, YOR Health co-founder’s, story of his own personal transformation. At his lowest point, Joe topped the scales at nearly 200 pounds and had struggled for five years to find the body he knew was hidden underneath the weight.
According to Dennis Wong, YOR Health launched in 2008, right when Joe Bower needed it the most. He was given the opportunity to be one of YOR Health’s first customers in Ohio, and Joe jumped at that chance. Tired of finding disappointment at the bottom of every “health store” weight loss bottle, Joe was ready for something that worked, says Dennis Wong. YOR Health was that something.

Marie Stephen of Staten Island, New York, grew up a self-described loner. Dennis Wong of YOR Health says Marie was lonely and lacked the one thing she needed to succeed–confidence.
Marie’s weight was always an issue. Her freshman year, she signed up with a popular weight loss center but, having to rely on her mother to take her there and cook special meals that fit with her diet plan didn’t work out. According to Dennis Wong, YOR Health customer Marie Stephen ballooned to 205 pounds before she graduated high school. Toward the end of her senior year, Marie found it hard to even walk between classes, becoming winded and tired going back and forth. It was then she decided she had to take matters into her own hands.
Charlotte Straus used to hide her insecurities behind food, says Dennis Wong. YOR Health helped this 20-something understand that food wasn’t meant to be a masking tool, but one used to build a foundation for a healthy future.
According to Dennis Wong, YOR Health customer Charlotte Strauss has a remarkable story. At just nine years old, Charlotte was in a horrific car accident. The next decade was spent between her bed and a wheelchair, as Charlotte was unable to walk. Miraculously, before her 20th birthday, Charlotte’s body healed to the point where she could stand. Dennis Wong of YOR Health says it wasn’t long before Charlotte was walking, just like her friends and siblings who she had always envied.
Alejandra Estrada realized when she hit 144 pounds that she had to regain control of her body, says Dennis Wong. YOR Health co-founder Wong explains that Alejandra tried every diet on the market, and even worked out with friends for support, but to no avail. The most she could lose was a few pounds here and there. Her issues were compounded by the fact that she did not know how to control her cravings. Every time Alejandra would start to see the scale inch down, she would reach for pasta, bread, and ice cream to celebrate.
Dennis Wong of YOR Health says Alejandra exercised and strived to stay active, using the wonderful California weather as a good excuse to get outside and move. However, despite her activity level, Alejandra’s diet still lacked what her body needed most–nutrition. This left her tired and barely able to do anything after a quick jog. Naps became Alejandra’s best friend.
Dennis Wong of YOR Health says he never ceases to be amazed at the progress and transformations that happen when people uncover the real health hidden inside of them. Vanessa Marin of Sacramento, California, is one of these people and serves as today’s spotlight success story.

Q: What YOR Health products does Vanessa use?
Dennis Wong, YOR Health: She drinks an icy chocolate YOR Shake each morning and adds YOR CompleteBurn at regular intervals throughout the day.

Vanessa has told us here at YOR Health that she can feel the CompleteBurn kicking in shortly after taking it and that it makes her feel alive and alert all day long.
