Our Story
I’m Michael Melikhov, Lead Business Leader and I’ve been with Sunrider since 1996.

My wife, Rita always had an interest in nutrition and natural healing and enjoyed sharing this knowledge with friends, colleagues and family.
She is Certified Holistic Health Coach. Rita received her training at The Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
IIN is the only nutrition school integrating all the different dietary theories combining the knowledge of traditional philosophies with modern concepts.
She received very detailed and careful instruction on how to coach others around food and lifestyle choices.
She is also certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.
She is working with people on how to reach their health goals, including stress reduction, increasing energy, losing weight, and improving their confidence.

We would like to share our knowledge of a group of revolutionary products, which have changed the lives of many people, including our own. My story begins 15 years ago when I was first introduced to Sunrider after the results of a blood test revealed relatively high cholesterol levels. At the time, my friend and future sponsor told me: “You should try Calli tea; it’ll assist your body's natural cleansing processes and will help to bring the cholesterol back to normal”, so I bought the box of Calli tea and drank it for two weeks and then took another blood test. The result was astonishing; the blood test had showed that my cholesterol had fallen to a normal level. (Can you imagine – in only 2 weeks) I felt younger, my energy level soared, my natural cleansing processes stabilized, and that was just a beginning.
I started to test every product, and each one worked exactly as described! Immediately I began to share information about the product with my friends and family. Shortly after, I became a Business Leader. Since then, my life began to change; it has become my family life style. It's my responsibility to share the information with you.
The best thing that happens every year is Sunrider’s Great Convention, where we get to meet Doctors Tei-Fu and Oi-Lin Chen, their wonderful family, as well as other Sunrider members and business leaders. We all feel like we are big family. At every convention, we pick up something new and learn from world class experts.
7 years ago, at Great Conventions in Anaheim, California, we met an amazing doctor and a very knowledgeable person from Ukraine Dr. Oksana Nikolenko, who has since became our good friend. Besides being MD and practicing conventional medicine, she has been using Ancient Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine to help people to recover and get their bodies back into balance. She introduced us to the Vedas and Ayurvedic medicine - a system of traditional medicine native to the Indian Subcontinent and practiced in other parts of the world as a form of alternative medicine. (In Sanskrit, the word Ayurveda consists of the words āyus, meaning 'life', and veda, meaning 'related to knowledge' or 'science' The earliest literature of Ayurveda appeared during the Vedic period)
We saw a similarity and connection in approach to health, and we feel it has become the greatest realization in our lives.
Sunrider, and Ayurveda have helped me and my wife with many health issues and brought all our medical tests to normal levels.

All this inspired us to open the SunGates Center in the Chicago area (, where we organize spiritual programs, lectures, seminars, classes, and attempt to bring knowledge to those who are interested.
We love to travel. We’ve been in India several times for panchakarma and spiritual journeys.
We are continuing to learn Ayurveda from our friend, Professor of Ayurveda, MD, Dr. Tanmay Goswami.

In May 2010 we had a trip to Abadiania, Brazil. We had a chance to meet very famous healer John Of God and feel the energy of the place. It was unforgettable journey.
