21 May 2018 Translated from Hebrew
My late husband, Benjamin, fell ill with Lung cancer three years ago. During the course of the illness, his appetite was impaired, resulting in appetite and weight loss. He claimed that food caused him breathing difficulty. We attempted to give him [a standard nutritional formula] with various flavor variations, however he refused due to their offensive fragrance and taste. The formula caused vomiting and not good feelings.
Blood tests showed decline in protein and iron. His hemoglobin went down. His general physical and emotional state declined. The family experienced at a loss of what to do and worry from his condition.
At this time we encountered Yaakov Levinson, a nutritionist from a national health service. We spoke with him, and he visited us several times. He suggested we try “Halva Shake” (a product which he personally developed and tested with published research studies in prestigious medical journals). I wish to point out, that from the first week of using this formulation, the nausea and vomiting subsided. He loved the delicate texture and the taste, and there were no accompanying odors. For six months he drank several servings daily of “Halva Shake”, refusing all other food (not officially recommended for sole nutrition support).
Even during hospitalization at Hadassah he took “Halva Shake”.
The blood values improved, protein levels went up, as well as iron and hemoglobin. There was great improvement
in his pressure sores… with surprising closure of these pressure sores.
We merited that my husband’s life was extended another six months from beginning of the Halva Shake.
Our thanks to Yaakov Levinson, who was very dedicated and optimistic, and he assisted us whenever we turned to him. We fully recommend that ill persons should use “Halva Shake”.
