Our Story

Tragedy. Trial. Triumph.

A Family Tragedy

After a hard fought battle with mental illness, Tony Stephan lost his wife. Several of their 9 children struggled with mental health issues as well. Healthcare professionals told Tony it was probable that one of his children would likely suffer the same fate as his mother due to the severity of his symptoms. They offered little hope.


A Possible Solution

After he refused to give up, Tony learned about micronutrient formulations that were used for livestock and began experimenting with combinations for his afflicted children.


Nutritional Breakthrough

Tony’s children, Joseph and Autumn, were the first to receive the new nutrient formula. Both responded quickly and experienced an increase in calm, coping, and mental clarity. They each began incredible healing using only the micronutrients.
