Sunrider Trudy Stoelting – Diana Walker’s Friend and Sunrider Mentor
Diana Walker’s Intro — As I promised – here is the story of my close friend and Sunrider sponsor Trudy Stoelting. Trudy and I worked together in the Administration and Human Resources offices of the local Hospital. We became very close friends.
Then Trudy got very ill, and ended up on Long Term Disability for 2 years. When she came back to work in late 1996, I was amazed. Many of us had not thought she was going to live long. For the first month, I was not interested in the Sunrider foods she was eating and drinking, because I had studied nutrition for so many years — I told her I was not interested.
Trudy respected that. Then, after watching her share her drinks (Fortune Delight), and her “funny drops” (Stevia) and fiber/energy bars (Sunbars) and the Sunrider NuPlus shake with others in the cafeteria at the hospital, I finally said, “OK – I’ll try some of that”.
I’m so glad I did!! Here is Trudy’s story:
SUNRIDER TRUDY STOELTING
– FROM 90% DEAD TO FULLY ALIVE!
In 1991, I started suffering from pain in my joints, low-grade fevers, extreme fatigue and insomnia. I forced myself through every day for five years. The pain grew progressively worse. I was sent to see an Arthritis specialist and he said that I did have arthritis but the pain was from fibrositis. Many of you know this as Fibromyalgia. In December of 1995, I went numb from head to toe.
I lost my sense of smell and my sense of taste. I was constantly dizzy. I was so fatigued that I slept 18 hours out of 24. The other 6 hours I was in a mental fog. The numbness was so severe that it was like having dental freezing from head to toe. I had difficulty with motor control because I couldn’t feel my hands or feet. I tripped up stairs, fell down stairs, bumped into furniture, broke dishes, and I couldn’t walk outside without assistance.
I felt like I was drooling constantly. I couldn’t tell if my chin was wet or not, or if my nose was dripping. I had trouble eating. I could chew on my cheeks or my tongue and not even know. I developed hay fever, allergies, eczema, varicose veins, terrible heart burn, bladder and kidney infections, ovarian cysts, cysts in my kidneys, migraines – the list goes on and on.
I was sent to a lot of different specialists who sent me for a lot of diagnostic tests. M.R.I., Vision Evoked Potentials, Heavy Metals testing, blood tests, urine tests, X-rays, etc. They found things wrong with me but couldn’t give me an overall diagnosis because they didn’t know what I had. They did know that I had a seriously compromised immune system.
Sunrider Trudy Stoelting – “I Felt Like I Was Going Home to Die”
With my husband beside me, I was told, “we can treat all your symptoms but we can’t do anything more for your immune system. We don’t have the technology yet to heal the immune system.” I felt like I was going home to die. My husband thought the same. We had our wills drawn up and I signed Power of Attorney to my husband in case I slipped into a coma or couldn’t function at all physically or mentally. My fatigue was so great even my heart was tired. I had an irregular heart beat. I felt 90% dead.
That is when a friend introduced me to Sunrider foods. She quite literally saved my life.
Sunrider Journey Back to Life
My journey back to life has not been an overnight thing. It took several months eating Sunrider Fortune Delight, Suncare, NuPlus, Quinary and Vitalite Sunbars before I noticed any marked improvement.
Since then, I continue to Cleanse, Nourish and Regenerate. My eczema, dizziness, infections and heart burn were the first to go. My irregular heartbeat was next along with the cysts and allergies. The numbness took two years and I can now walk with balance and control. I can even run and jog with balance. I have no pain in my joints. I can smell and taste again. I have dropped 6 sizes in clothes and lost so many inches that I don’t even measure anymore. Muscle looks so much better than fat.

From Disability – Back to Work – then Sunrider Business
After years on disability, I went back to work, only to quit two months later to do Sunrider as a business. Why? Because I have come from dead to life and I am passionate about sharing this incredible gift with everyone who will listen. Sunrider foods gave my body what it needed to regenerate, and I am so grateful. I have come so far, but feel like a baby just starting out. I am doing my best and Sunrider is making my best better each day. I am FULLY ALIVE!
Diana Walker’s Note:
Isn’t this an impressive success story? Trudy continues to be healthy and vibrant and alive. In 2020 it will be 24 years since Sunrider was introduced to her. We visit several times a year, and she continues to be in glowing health, with unbelievable energy.
You don’t have to be ill and on death’s door, like Trudy was. In fact, it’s much better if you want to stay healthy and young as long as possible… It is much easier to maintain great health and regenerate your cells when they have not degenerated so far.

It has been one year since our wonderful friend Trudy passed away.
Here are Rye’s words:
“Today marks a year since I held Trudy’s hand while she slipped into eternity with Our Lord. I am so grateful for the adventures we had during our 50 years together. I love you Trudy. As you honored Him with songs of praise throughout your life, may He now honor you by listening to your songs in heaven.”
Here is the email Trudy sent in January 2020:

Dear friends and Sunrider family,
It is with a heart filled with love and gratitude that I send this letter to you. I am so grateful for 24 years of God’s grace.
24 years ago I was dying. The doctors had done everything they could for me but the challenge of Lupus was difficult and it was killing me. Lupus is an autoimmune disease.
Then my friend Karen started me on Sunrider foods. These Sunrider foods helped my boy to regenerate. The gave me the strength and energy I needed and the result was 24 years of an amazing life of Grace. My deep thanks to the Dr. Chen’s who had the courage and passion to bring the gift of Sunrider to the world.
For 24 years I have truly lived. My faith in God has deepened, my body regenerated and we were blessed with beautiful Daughter in laws and grandchildren. We travelled around the world, and met the most wonderful people who have become dear friends. We have had incredible Adventures and so much fun!
My life long delight has been my husband Rye of 50 plus years. You couldn’t meet a finer man anywhere in the world. I have been truly cherished! We have 4 strong sons, and 9 grandchildren. 5 Biological and four step grandchildren of the heart.
These past weeks have been a challenge, as I have not been feeling well. This week we were supposed to be heading to New Zealand but had to cancel. Then Tuesday this week we found out that I have terminal pancreatic/Lung/and organ cancer with a prognosis of 1 to 6 months. Before you panic and reach for the phone to call we ask that instead you would pray. I don’t have the strength to answer all the calls or to handle visits other than immediate family. We are still trying to get our heads around all this and need time to do what we have to do. Please Pray for us to have peace. Know that each of you are deeply appreciated and loved. You can email or private message on Facebook and we will respond if we can.
So I want to ask you. What value do you put on 24 years of the gift of living fully alive! Without Sunrider foods I would have not had that gift. Our gratitude shows no bounds and we are truly blessed!
To all of you it truly has been a privilege to work with you, to get to know you and to share our lives in anyway we could.
With deep thanks and love,
Trudy & Rye
May 6, 2021 – I love you and miss you, Trudy
