Robert was on a camping trip in the Virginia Blue Ridge
Mountains, when his tent rips open. It was his father, who
sternly says to Robert...
"Pack up your things. We need to leave now."
In what seemed like a blur, Robert threw his tent and
sleeping bag into the back of his truck.
"Where are we going?", Robert asked in a huff.
"Duke," his father uttered.
"Your brother is in the hospital."
Chris was 19 at the time, and had just been rushed to the
hospital in critical condition.
His brain and body were failing him.
Tests were run and the doctors determined that Chris had
a life-threatening pituitary tumor that was
blocking his hormonal production. His T levels came in at
11ng/dL - about a third of the average woman of
The whole family was concerned when Chris opted not to
take the medication and synthetic T he was prescribed.
Chris was a Neuroscience Major at Duke at the time and had
taking exogenous hormone replacements would stymie the
natural production of his hormones.
"Give me a year," he said.
"I want to try to do this the right way."
Just one year later, Chris was a different man.
He had gotten in shape, his energy levels were
skyrocketing and he was happier than ever before.
When his T levels were re-tested in a regular checkup, he
had reached 1192ng/dL - more than triple the
average man. What's more,
his tumor had shrunk in size to the point
of being benign.
The crazy part? Chris had done this all
Diet and lifestyle changes, exercise and correcting
vitamin and mineral deficiencies had done the trick.
So Chris wrote a book called "Master Your T," in
which he shared his journey and insights he picked up
along the way. After 10,000's of copies sold,
it was clear that many other men resonated with his
This begged the question...
"What other issues do we deal with on an everyday basis
that can be solved naturally, without the need for
pharmaceuticals that carry a long list of side
Reaching back to his Neuroscience experience and research
acumen, Chris was able to produce
a long list of potential issues - from
sugar regulation to cognitive health -
that could be solved naturally.
When Chris reached out to his brother with this idea,
Robert dropped his career in Engineering to forge this
path. He had seen for himself
how truly effective a focus holistic health can
be, and they both wanted to
help as many people as possible.
Years later, UMZU continues to grow and has to date helped
100,000's of men and women overcome
real issues naturally.
They've learned a lot over the years, but it all comes
down to one major principle...
