Doing What You Want To

One of the benefits of owning your own business is being able to schedule breaks in your day. Like today I was able to walk with a friend. :)

Being in charge of your own business can be work, but it can also mean more time available to do other things that are important to you.

It is possible to do both, but you need to ask yourself, "What kind of work do I want to do?"

Many people say, "I don't want to sell to my friends. I don't want to bother my family and friends and beg them to buy off of me."
I can relate to that as I am like that. Would you like a business then where you educate and teach rather than sell? 
We have a business for you that allows you to do just that. Become an educator, a teacher, a consultant, whatever you choose, we can show you a business that allows you to do it comfortably in your own way.

Then there are others who love to sell things to people that they need and want a business that can provide that opportunity. 
You can actually own a business that supplies products people use and want every day. A consumable product that people use every day and will re-order over and over. 

What if you don't have a lot of time? Can you still own your own business?
I get asked that a lot. 
Most people lead very busy lives between their jobs, family and other commitments and feel there is just no time left to start a business.
If I could show you a way to take even just moments a day and still start a successful business, would you be interested?

Most people think starting your own business takes a large amount of money and most do not have that kind of funds.
I hear you and that was me. I started with no money, literally.
For most businesses that would be true, but I actually can show you a way to start your own business with little to no startup costs. It is possible and we can help you.

Though we may all be different, have different needs and desires, we all basically want the same thing. Work that is fulfilling and fun. A career that blooms under our strengths and helps us improve our weaknesses.
We want to make enough money to live comfortably and even quit the jobs we hate.
We want to be able to make enough to give to the charities and causes we support.
And we want time. Time to do the things we enjoy with the people we love.

Is there such a business? Is there really a business for me?

Yes there is and it can be tailored to meet your exact needs and methods of operation.

It takes a first step, a leap of faith in the form of a question.

Take that first step and ask us some questions. We're here to help you and the best way we can help you is to answer your questions.

Just click the "Contact Us" tab up top and send us your questions. We will be happy to help you discover the right business for you.

All it takes is the desire to, "Do What You Want To."

Science Talk: Breastfeeding Support

Do you know someone who is interested in breastfeeding their baby?

When my son was born I remember the challenges we faced and I am so happy I sought help and was able to nurse him into the healthy child he is today. I naturally had a ton of questions and I’m sure you did, too.

The subject of breastfeeding and support for moms who want to breastfeed is really popular. Many new moms have so many questions and while there is a ton of information out there, it’s nice to have the answers in one place and delivered to you from medical professionals who understand the benefits and the challenges.

We have a wonderful audio recording this month that discusses some of the most frequently asked questions about breastfeeding with additional suggestions.

This short audio is packed with some great information and it can be listened to on any device or as a podcast. I think you will really enjoy it.

Feel free to share this with a new mom or mom-to-be you know! Knowledge is power and a new mom will soak up all the good info they can get.

Want to know more about having a healthy pregnancy? Shaklee’s blog, Naturally has several wonderful articles on how to have a healthy pregnancy.

Just click this link to see the list of articles and pick your favorites: Naturally HealthyPregnancy

I hope you enjoy this information on breastfeeding. 

Do you have more questions? Feel free to contact me by clicking the "Contact Us" tab up top and we will talk more.

Healthy Blood pressure - Is this a concern for you?

Keeping your blood pressure in the healthy range is doable even if you have a family history of high blood pressure.
The best time to work on having a healthy blood pressure is before it begins to creep up, however the steps you take either before you have high blood pressure or after are the same - a healthy diet rich in the nutrients that support healthy blood pressure, like mentioned in the short video here, and supplementing with them if your body is requiring more than you can get from diet alone.

Along with a healthy, active lifestyle you can have a healthier blood pressure.
While supplementing to prevent disease is easier than treating it, you can achieve a healthier blood pressure even if you are currently having problems.
There is a process to this and it should not be done without working closely with your doctor. Please do not stop taking any medication in the hope this will cure your high blood pressure.
We work with you and your doctor, helping you to incorporate the nutrients into your diet and monitoring your blood pressure in a safe way, thereby allowing your doctor to adjust your medication as your health improves. This takes time and effort, but it is so worth it.
If achieving or maintaining a healthy blood pressure is important to you, be sure to contact us for a personal consultation. We are happy to work with you and your doctor to find the right solution to meet your needs.
Healthy blood pressure is possible, all it takes is you to take control of it!

Arm Yourself For The Cold & Flu Season

It’s October, have you already been sick?

As you can imagine, we are really focused on prevention of illnesses. We fully believe that a strong immune system is your best defense and we are dedicated to helping you build your immune system.

I’m sure you are already aware at how expensive being sick can be. In addition to just feeling awful, you lose money in days off of work, either to care for yourself or a sick child. You also spend a lot of money at the doctor’s office and pharmacy.

Wouldn’t it be better to not get sick at all? Even if you do succumb to a virus, many people who have made the investment of building a healthy immune system seem to have less severe symptoms and a shorter time down.

We have some wonderful immune boosting ideas as well as what to do at that moment when you feel something starting to come on. We can teach you how to have a “Natural Medicine Cabinet” to go to when you and the family are getting invaded by viruses.

Don’t wait till you and the kids get sick, prepare to do battle with the cold & flu season now! We can help you get ready and arm you with all the battle tools you’ll need. Be sure and contact us today to learn how.

Here are some of the items I keep in our “arsenal”, the kitchen cabinet for when we are exposed to a virus or feel like we are getting something:

Vitalized Immunity                         Garlic
Nutriferon                                       Zinc
Vit. C                                               Vita-Lea
Optiflora                                         Defend & Resist

If you are a member of Shaklee you have probably received our recent postcard, “Say Boo to the Flu”. This has a picture of some of the items we recommend. If you mention the postcard when you call me, I will send you a free gift, just for asking about them!
Be sure and get with me to learn how to keep you and everyone in your home healthy!

Vitamin C – The Infection Fighter

Do you know why you need to add Vitamin C to your diet?

Vitamin C boosts the immune system, this we all know, but it also has many other benefits:

  • Powerful antioxidant
  • Helps the body absorb iron & calcium
  • Maintains cell integrity
  • Protects against free radicals 
  • Natural antihistamine, helps allergies
  • Reduces risk of heart disease
  • Reduces risk of cataracts
  • Increases resistance to ligament and tendon injuries

How to know if you are deficient in Vitamin C:

  • Experience stress
  • Chronic infections
  • Frequent cold & flu
  • Allergies & asthma
  • Bruise easily & bleeding gums
  • Nosebleeds
  • Varicose & spider veins
  • Slow healing wounds & fractures
  • Shortness of breath
  • Swollen glands
  • Anemia

Your body is capable of many things, but it can’t make Vitamin C. So we must get it from our diets, but getting enough Vitamin C is nearly impossible from food alone. We must supplement, especially during the cold & flu season.

It is very important to choose the right Vitamin C. 

Synthetic Vitamin C is worthless as your body doesn’t know what to do with it. It doesn’t recognize the made up chemical compound since it isn’t the real thing. 

Some “natural” forms of Vitamin C can contain toxic chemicals and they often don’t contain the other compounds found in nature that go along with it. Therefore the benefits are limited.

Why we choose Shaklee’s Vitamin C is because it is natural, it’s naturally manufactured to retain all the nutrients found in nature, including the Vitamin C and contains no synthetic chemicals or additives.

Available in Sustained Release and Chewable formulas, we have two great varieties to meet your needs:

  • High-potency Vitamin C
  • Proprietary sustained-release system that delivers the Vitamin C equivalent of one-and-a-half oranges every hour for five hours
  • Helps maintain natural antioxidant defenses, cell integrity, and the health of eyes, teeth, gums, bones, muscles and blood vessels*

  • Ideal for children or adults who have difficulty swallowing tablets.
  • Great citrus flavor

Now that you realize how important Vitamin C is, be sure you have it in your arsenal to fight against the germs and viruses this season!

Probiotics - The Key To a Healthy Immune System

Years ago, no one thought too much about the bacteria that live in our digestive tract. Scientists knew there were plenty of bacteria in our gut, but they didn't think too much about them. That has all changed. 
There are now more than three hundred clinical research studies looking into what those little bugs in our guts are doing for us and what the studies have found is amazing.
Your digestive tract contains more than 100 trillion bacteria (that is 10 times the number of cells in your entire body) and collectively makes up an inner ecosystem known as our gut flora. The health of that ecosystem, it turns out, can be very important to your overall health.

Gut flora

Gut flora help us in a lot of ways. They are used to aid in the digestion of food and absorb nutrients; many vitamins and minerals are released from the food you eat by bacteria in our digestive tract. The gut flora are a huge part of our immune system contributing up to 80% of our immune system and they help promote healthy intestinal activity, good digestion, and colon regularity.

If you have ever taken an antibiotic, even just once, your gut flora are out of balance. There are more bad guys than good guys in there because the antibiotic does not play favorites - it kills all of the bacteria in your gut both the good and the bad!

Then, if your diet isn't pure, and really whose is? Your gut most probably has an imbalance of gut bacteria. Meaning, if you consume white flour, sugar, too much salt, etc., then that means you created an environment where the bad bacteria have outnumbered the good bacteria.

What doctors and scientists are learning is you need to replenish the good guys and do it often if your diet is less than ideal or you have taken antibiotics.

How to have a healthy ecosystem

If you want to maintain a healthy bacterial ecosystem, the best approach is to avoid refined grains, sugar, processed foods, chlorinated water, and certain medications.
You can also add good bacteria by getting them in your diet. Make sure to include fermented foods as a part of your daily routine. This means not only a good yogurt, but also pickles, sauerkraut, kefir, buttermilk, and tempeh. Make sure you choose these foods with live cultures; pasteurization can destroy the healthy bacteria.
In addition to cultured foods, a probiotics supplement can also help support healthy digestive and immune function.

It would be great if we could get them all by diet alone, but that is virtually impossible. Many people do not like the above mentioned fermented foods and even if you do eat yogurt, most are so heavily laden with sugar, the few good guys that might be alive, aren't able to do much good.

This is why health experts strongly recommend supplementing with a good, quality probiotic to replenish the good gut bacteria. This not only helps with digestion problems, but also helps boost your immune system.

What is really great about adding probiotics is they do not interfere with medications and they are safe and easy for children to take!
The problem with adding some probiotics in supplement form is they often never live to see your gut. 
Studies done on the cheaper probiotics found in stores have shown those little guys don't last long in the bottle and many brands were found to have no live bacteria in them!
Other studies showed the problem of the good bacteria in the product never survives the stomach acids. This means very few of them live to get to the gut to do their job.
So how do you get a good, high quality probiotic to live on the shelf and to safely get past the stomach acids so these little guys can work their magic in your gut?
It takes a lot of research, trial and error and the best scientific minds working together to formulate a probiotic that actually works and get the little guys safely to their intended destination.
This is the one my family uses and we have noticed huge results with better digestion and a healthier immune system:

Optiflora Probiotic Complex - Potency Advantage 
Optiflora Probiotic Complex utilizes patented triple-layer encapsulation technology, designed to provide live delivery of probiotics to the large intestine, where they provide the greatest benefit.

The power of nature, unleashed by science. 
Safe. Proven. Guaranteed.

 At Shaklee, they are committed to innovating through science and looking to nature for the answers that can provide healthier lives. They ensure the highest quality and safety standards—conducting over 100,000 quality tests per year to ensure their products are safe for you and your family.

This is why I trust Shaklee to give us the very best of Science & Nature. 

Try Shaklee Probiotics for yourself and if you are not completely satisfied receive a full refund of the product.

*Note: Optiflora capsules can be ordered separately or as a system combined with Pre-biotics, which in simple terms are food for the good bacteria.
If you are not used to taking a probiotic I recommend not taking the pre-biotic yet as it may cause gas.
Start with just the probiotic capsule first, then when gut is in a healthier state you may add the pre-biotic powder later if you want.

Glucose Regulation Complex - Helps retain normal blood-sugar levels*

The number of people with high blood sugar has been climbing rapidly in all age groups. 
❍ An estimated 16 million Americans – including at least 300,000 children – have seriously high levels of glucose in their blood.
❍ At least one-third of these people do not know it. 
❍ Increased 70% for people in their 30’s within the past decade.

Glucose Regulation Complex takes a new approach to glucose regulation* 

Glucose Regulation Complex promotes sensitivity of cell receptors to aid in normal glucose transport into cells.* 
Glucose Regulation Complex helps the body make efficient use of the insulin it already produces so as to promote long-term cardiovascular health and to help retain normal blood glucose levels.* 
❍ Unique combination of minerals, botanical & antioxidants 
● The best of nature and science 
● 100% Shaklee guaranteed

How Do The Ingredients Work?

Promotes efficient glucose utilization.* 
❍ Magnesium, chromium, zinc and vanadium support the body’s ability to process glucose.* Aids normal glucose transport into cells and normal responsiveness of cells to insulin.* 
❍ Banaba leaf extract, magnesium and chromium promote efficient transport of glucose from the blood into cells, helping the body to retain normal blood glucose levels.* The antioxidants alpha lipoic acid, zinc, and taurine help protect the integrity of cells so they can respond normally to insulin.*

Helps sustain energy and prevent rapid blood sugar declines that can lead to food cravings.* When taken as part of a healthful, high-fiber diet, chromium and banaba leaf extract can help stave off blood sugar crashes that can lead to feelings of low energy, hunger, carbohydrate cravings, and between-meal snacking.* 

Provides antioxidant protection and helps to recycle vitamins C and E for additional antioxidant activity.* Alpha lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant in itself, but it also helps recharge the antioxidant protection of Vitamins C and E.* Zinc and chromium also have significant effects on oxidative stress.

Who Can Benefit From Glucose Regulation Complex*?

● Adult men and women who want to retain normal blood sugar levels. 
● Those wanting to help sustain energy and prevent blood sugar crashes that can lead to carbohydrate cravings. 
● Those who are making lifestyle changes to help maintain long-term health 
About 1 in 4 Americans, that’s 70 million people, could benefit from support to help the body make more efficient use of the insulin it produces.

Users’ Experiences With Glucose Regulation Complex*

"I can tell the food choices that I'm craving are not sugary carbohydrate type foods. It's more the proteins and the vegetables that are complex carbohydrates, which is a switch for me."
- J. Glacken (Illinois)

"I think people are really searching for something safe that they can rely on and they don't have to worry about some of the questionable things that are on the market."
- J. Carter 

"In the 30 some years that we’ve been associated with Shaklee, I just have the greatest confidence in their research, and that they would not even be testing a product that was not safe or that was not going to live up to their standards. I'm so excited about the possibilities of this product, not only for me and for my family, but for many other people who have some of the same concerns that I do about health issues."
- J. Boltinghouse (Iowa)
