Eric Ranks describes health struggles he endured that led to creating a Double Gold and four time award winning vodka brand.
OGDEN, UT, USA, May 11, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — Eric Ranks recently shared details about his own health issues in his life that led to creating his award winning vodka, 22 Salute Vodka ‘With A Purpose’. Eric was diagnosed with leukemia before age 6, then struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts throughout his life. After his divorce, he nearly ended his life with an accidental overdose of antidepressants.
In 2015, Eric suffered internal bleeding and was rushed to the ER for life saving blood transfusions. He was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and with the help of a ketogenic diet, was able to stabilize his condition. The next few years would again challenge Eric’s spirit as he faced a ruptured esophagus and survived a life threatening surgery.
Eric was initially drawn to the topic of veteran health after managing a team of employees that had served overseas. He also watched in anger as the VA refused to cover injuries caused by Agent Orange to a friend. Eric had been raised in a military family and in 2012, he left corporate America and started a non profit, The Veteran’s Connection. Its initial mission was to help speed up the process to help veterans receive their benefits.
Since 2020, Eric has dedicated his efforts to suicide prevention and veteran support with The Veterans Connection and 22 Salute Spirits and Coffee ‘With A Purpose’. You can click on the one-minute video within this press release from NBC affiliate KRNV News 4 out of Reno, NV to learn more about these organizations and his journey.
Eric’s mission was forged by his many health scares and it gave him a vision of what his life should be: dedication to helping others in need. Where most people would find struggle with health issues, it gave Eric purpose.
