Testimonial from Mrs. Espie Victorino, Chemical Engineer, of Quezon City. Home Delivery Customer from June 2006 ??? Present. | Meg is our only child, a gift from God. I gave birth to her after eleven (11) long years of marriage. Of course, my husband and I gave her the best distilled water we thought was.
Until Meg contracted amoebiasis when she was 2 years. It was very painful for a mother to see how her only child is suffering. We started to search for the best water for her. We never knew about Dr. Edwards Sterilized Drinking Water until Dr. Loi Toedoro, meg’s pediatrician, recommended it. Thank God, since then, our daughter Meg became healthy and strong after using Dr. Edwards for more than a year now. We are very much contented with the product and with their friendly and accommodating Customer Service Representatives. We are planning to use Dr. Edwards for a lifetime. | | Testimonial from Mrs. Josephine Tolentino of Cainta, Rizal. Home Delivery Customer from October2006 ????? Present. | I am a mother of 40. Joseph is my only child and I want to give him the best. Since birth, he has been using Dr. Edwards Sterilized Drinking Water because I believe that a big contributory factor to a baby’s good health is water. I have tested and proven about the safety of Dr. Edwards and as a mother, I am proud to say that my child has never contracted diarrhea and other water-related illnesses which most babies are experiencing.
I will never put my son’s health at stake because good health is wealth. So to all the moms and moms-to-be, I highly recommend the only sterilized water in the country. Try it and you won’t regret it. | | | Sales Spiel for Dr. Edwards Selling Process| Discussion| Pre ???
