Episode #014 – Cystic Fibrosis Survivor – Paul Underhill

Victoria Family Chiropractic Podcast EP 14 Victoria BC

Paul Underhill began looking at every possible way to extend his life when he was in his late 20’s; that’s because at just six months of age he was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF), a fatal genetic disease affecting the primarily lungs.

While most afflicted with Cystic Fibrosis often don’t live to see their 25th birthday, Paul was determined not to become another statistic. To help provide his body the nutrients he needed and to keep healthy, he sought to create a high protein, gluten/lactose/soy-free beverage, free of artificial ingredients and low in sugar. The beverage had to taste good and after six months of rigorously testing recipes in his kitchen with the conjunction of a local Naturopath, the prototype for what would become the Rumble Supershake was born.

Realizing he was onto something big, Paul brought together a small team to develop the brand, eventually landing on Dragons Den where they pitched Rumble successfully. Today Rumble can be found in virtually any health food or grocery store and is in Whole Foods across the United States.

Paul’s determined and focus efforts to improve his health with exercise and quality nutrition extended his life by well over a decade. However, at the age of 40 after nearly dying from Cystic Fibrosis, he underwent a double-lung transplant. The transplant transformed his life, and he now leads an active live riding his bike up to 100km at a time!

Today the success of Rumble has become his platform as both an advocate for Cystic Fibrosis, and the need for more organ donors. It’s also spurred the creation of a One Percent for Hunger non-profit organization.

In this Episode you’ll hear how this remarkable man with Cystic Fibrosis extended his life long after the norm and how he created Rumble:

  • What quality nutrition means and how it can extend your life
  • Some of the ingredients that make Rumble so good for you
  • How you can improve your fitness even with enormous challenges
  • The mindset needed to change your life
  • Ways to improve lung function

I feel fortunate to have spoken with Paul and to hear his candid explanation of what he’s done to improve his health. His results speak for themselves despite having Cystic Fibrosis (a genetic condition)! I was also amazed to hear how profoundly transplant surgery changed his life and also saved it. I think you’ll be interested to hear what makes Rumble such a unique product as well.
