Whether you are part of the enteral nutrition or the mainstream nutrition conversation, peptides are being referenced more and more. Yet what they are and the myriad of reasons they can be beneficial are often overlooked. It’s important to understand both of these when considering if or how one should incorporate them into their life – especially when we consider their ability to maximize nourishment to those who might need it most.......

Fats are an essential part of any diet. From the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins and maintaining blood sugar balance to their role in brain health, immune function, mitochondrial health – their importance as a foundational aspect of one’s diet cannot be emphasized enough. There is a growing body of evidence that supports not only its inclusion, but that they may be required for optimal health. Still, with a long history of being vilified in public health messaging, the important role they play is often misunderstood or poorly accepted within the broader community.........

>I was told to give him <brand name removed> which I hated right from the get-go because of its high sugar content and other garbage in it. So I was completely overjoyed with Nourish (well Liquid Hope at the time) with all the wonderful ingredients in it! For many years I purchased liquid hope/Nourish out of pocket because I wanted my son to get the best nutrition possible through the tube & consistently. Then later Nourish came out and about a year ago we finally got insurance to approve it for us!

Hey. Just saying thanks. Our 4 year old uses your products. He hasn’t had any fevers or sickness in between treatments. His counts recover without delay, he hasn’t lost any weight since his second round and doctors always tell us how he’s thriving while healing from stage 4 adrenal cancer. The nurses are always shocked that we can run his feeds for as long as we do during the week of chemo.

Within 6 months of using Nourish my son was 50% weight for height. It worked so well for him; his dietician agreed to use Nourish as the base for his ketogenic diet for epilepsy and my son thrived even more.

I am so grateful for the KETO formula - an easy way for me to keep my daughter in ketosis through her bone marrow transplant.

This is my son Alistair. He is 4 years old with partial trisomy 18 and is gtube dependent. He has been on many formulas and blenderized diet but is currently on nourish and tolerating it well. He used to vomit all the time and have constipation. He used to take eryped, cyproheptadine, miralax and senna and we have taken him off all those medications. He just gets nourish and a probiotic with fiber daily.

"He is growing and thriving"
Before my son’s small intestine transplant, he was not able to tolerate any formula (bolus or running on a pump) as his intestine was a big ball of scar tissue. Since his transplant, his new small bowel functions the way it should and is allowing him to actually tolerate Nourish. He is growing and thriving and has discontinued all parenteral nutrition.

Shelter in Place is time with family and time for slowing down a bit to work on life skills. Over the years Ty Christian has ‘grown up’ using the healthiest food available for tube feeding thanks to Functional Formularies. And now this young man is practicing self feeding, stoma care and he is changing his own g tube! Happy boy, proud mom! Thank you for the only nutritionally complete, non GMO, organic food!"

We got the call one cold and rainy September morning. That a little girl born to die was waiting for her family. She was nine months old and 9 pounds. When I asked to see her hospital files and records they brought me for giant boxes full of them. The most heartbreaking sentences were the ones that said mom and dad couldn’t be convinced to stay with her. Mom stayed but that’s because she was homeless. Mom came to the hospital high on drugs. She was born to die, they told me. Take her home and make her comfortable. When we were in the hospital the doctors were making rounds and they poked at her eye. Doctor proudly announced to his group of fellow students that she had the intelligence of a carrot and would never amount to anything. She glared at him and bit him. True story. I knew in that minute that this was a little girl who was going to tip my world upside down. And she has.
