Jimmy Tran, a Journey of Inspiration

https://denniswong.org/2017/02/01/dennis-wong-yor-health-customer-makes-leap-of-faith-for-family/Yor health benefits Jimmy TranWith six children and two jobs, Jimmy Tran has very little time to care for himself and became the answer to this foster father’s prayer when Jimmy’s health started to take a turn for the worse.

Jimmy Tran and his wife are like many other couples; they got married, had a couple of children, and settled into a suburban life in Lowell, Massachusetts. However, Tran’s was not destined to remain a small family for long. While the family was considering an expansion, the couple was presented an opportunity to foster not one, but four children. Without hesitation, the Trans agreed.

With four new mouths to feed, Jimmy, who already work a full-time job, added a part-time position to his busy schedule, says Dennis Wong. This hectic lifestyle did not take long to catch up to Jimmy, who quickly gained 50 pounds and was starting to feel sluggish and uncomfortable in his skin. Jimmy knew he had to do something but after a few months of working two jobs, living at the gym, and avoiding all the foods he loved, Jimmy wasn’t in much better shape.

Spotlight: Marlyn Rojas

Acne cures by YorhealthClear skin was little more than a dream for Marlyn Rojas before she discovered CEO Dennis Wong and YORHealth, the company he co-founded with his sister more than a decade ago.

Marlyn Rojas realized she looked different from everyone before she had entered her teen years, says Wong. Marlyn suffered from severe acne and always felt like the ugly duckling among her friends. By middle school, Marlyn started using heavy makeup to cover the blemishes and scars on her young face.

In high school, Marlyn was shy and withdrawn. She was often bullied because of the marks on her skin and suffered harassment every day. Making things worse was the media’s portrayal of beauty, which had no room for blemishes. Marlyn, like countless other young women in her condition, was left feeling as though she could never live up to the standards set by women such as Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian.

Around her 20th birthday, Marlyn decided she had had enough and began actively seeking a solution to her very visible problem. She found it, but it wasn’t what she expected, reports Dennis Wong. YOR Health’s YOR Essential Vitamins, recommended by a friend, became her saving grace. Although skeptical, Marlyn decided that it couldn’t hurt. Within three weeks, her skin was visibly clearer and brighter.

College Student Now Appreciates Health in all Forms

Clear skin before/afterYORHealth has heard countless stories of college students living off fast food and energy drinks for the duration of their degree. Lisa Chang, a Lowell, Massachusetts, student could have very easily wound up in this group if not for a chance encounter with a YOR Health representative.

Q: Why was health and exercise never a concern for Lisa Chang?

Lisa was thin so she assumed that she was healthy. However, she never ate breakfast and considered chicken fingers nutritionally sound. Despite a constant buffet of cheesesteak, sodas, and quesadillas, Lisa managed to maintain her slim figure.
Q: Doesn’t thin mean healthy?

Not necessarily. As Lisa learned, some people metabolize fat quicker than others, despite other health issues. For Lisa, her unhealthy habits materialized in other visible ways – in the form of pimply, oily skin. Though Lisa was confident with her body, how she felt about her face was another story. Lisa would spend hours each day on her hair and makeup, always running to the bathroom to make sure her blemishes were not showing through.

Dennis Wong Shares YOR Health Stories: Jessica Haar

Dennis Wong YOR HealthJessica Haar was raised by single yet doting father, two uncles, and grandfather. Without a woman’s influence, Jessica grew up “eating like a man.” In college, Jessica continued her masculine dining approach by drinking lots of beer and eating entirely too much fast food. Here, Dennis Wong of YOR Health shares how Jessica went from 185 pounds to a size four in less than a year.

Q: How did Jessica’s upbringing affect her relationship with food?

Dennis Wong, YOR Health: Jessica’s dad, who had two children by the age of 24, raised his family without the influence of a woman. He was busy all the time and never had a chance to sit down and have dinner with Jessica. This meant that Jessica had a casual relationship with food and never really considered it as anything other than a means to survive.

Q: Why was it so hard for Jessica to learn about nutrition as she entered high school?

Dennis Wong, YOR Health: When Jessica started high school, she went from a chubby little girl to an active and attractive young athlete. She — along with boys she had known her entire life – begin to take notice of her changing body. Living in a small town, however, made it tough for Jessica to find anyone who could counsel her on her nutritional needs.
