Migraines can be so debilitating and it's comforting to see that there are people finding relief.
I have a neighbor who has suffered with migraines for years. They were reoccurring every week and she would spend a couple day a week in bed. She was also having problems with depression. I had spoken with her about Shaklee over the years, but she was not interested.
Finally last May she said that she was ready.
I gave her: Soy Protein, Vita Lea, B-Complex, Vita C, Calcium Mg., GLA, EPA, Lecithin, Optiflora, and Moodlift for her depression. We went out of town and I did not see her for almost a month.
When we came home she came over and said that she had not had a migraine since she started with Shaklee. She is off all her medication, including her depression medication. She said that it is the first time in several years that she has felt like doing anything. She has had a few little headaches, but no migraines.
She is so excited that she is sharing it with friends who have migraines and other health problems. She has cut back on some of the supplements. She has also become more aware of her diet. She ate many sweets and other snacks that were not too healthy. I hope this has been of some help for you ………………….Helen C.
Optiflora & Migraine Testimony
I have had migraines since the age of 12 that were associated with my menstrual cycle. They were predictable and terrible. During pregnancy and lactation I did not have a headache (I was either pregnant or nursing for eleven wonderful, headache-free years). I thought that menopause would cure the problem, but like 20% of migraine sufferers when menopause hit I had a headache for a year and a half. I really couldn't stand living!
I tried everything and a completely restricted diet which eliminated all processed or aged foods
helped to give me several days a week headache free. Imitrex was life-changing for me as it would knock a headache down, but at the cost of $139 per nine pills it was cramping to my finances.
I added Optiflora to my Shaklee nutrition program simply because I have always used health food store acidophilus and am totally convinced that it is a symbiont to the human body and must be present for digestion. After taking Optiflora for just two days I attended a party and ate cheese and had a beer...a SURE headache within four hours, but I had my Imitrex in hand. I was ready!
WELLLLLL...to make a short story long... I can eat cheese, I can eat anything except foods with MSG...I can't believe that this product made an immediate change in my ability to digest foods, especially dairy foods, without a migraine. ………..Judy D
"My Shaklee Story" – Barbara
I would like to share my Shaklee success story with you. Shaklee has changed my life. I started taking a variety of the Shaklee food and herbal supplements and the Energizing Soy Protein in November 1999. From that time to the present my health has changed DRAMATICALLY for the better.
In August of 1998, I suffered a "mini-stroke" due to complicated migraines. At the onset of this "mini-stroke" my right leg went numb. I had to hobble down the stairs. After a few minutes I had trouble speaking. All of my words came out tangled up. I knew what I wanted to say but all of the words came out wrong. To say the least this was very frightening. This episode lasted for several minutes and then suddenly I could speak normally again and my leg returned to normal.
I went to see my physician the next day. After weeks of extensive testing, I was told that this was a result of complicated migraines. For over one year, each day I experienced numbness, pain and weakness in my legs and arms and intermittent nausea. I also had periods of severe forgetfulness and fatigue. I could recognize people but not know their names. It was awful.
My doctor had put me on two medications. These medications helped but I was still very sick. I did NOT want to be on medications my entire life. I was only 34 years old at the time. I wanted to find a natural way to help myself. At this point there was some debate as to the actual cause of my numbness and tingling and pain in my arms and legs. I was sent to three different neurologists. These three doctors could not agree. It was decided in the end that my symptoms were due to my migraines and stress.
In November 1999, I was introduced to Shaklee through a friend. It was a miracle. I started with Vita-Lea, B-Complex, Vitamin E, Vitamin C and Energizing Soy Protein. Within a short period of time, I began to feel great improvement. I HAD NO SYMPTOMS! I was no longer tired, I felt so much better. Later, I added Acuity Plus for the forgetfulness.
At my next doctor visit, I told my doctor about my Shaklee regimen. I continued with it. At the end of January I phoned my doctor to ask permission to be removed from my medications. He agreed. It is currently May 2000 and I have been medication free since January 2000. I've never felt better.
Case in point…three weeks ago I ran out of a few of my supplements and my Energizing Soy Protein due to an unexpected financial crisis. As a result, I suffered a migraine headache on Saturday. But I know that this happened because I went off my Shaklee regimen. I WILL NEVER DO THAT AGAIN!
Recently, I had my last follow-up visit with my doctor on 5/26/00. He has declared me "totally recovered." My doctor is so pleased with my recovery that he will be reviewing information about Shaklee. Shaklee has also helped my daughter with her overall health and her allergies. I have since started my own successful, expanding Shaklee business. I love it! I like helping others become healthier. It is so much fun. With Shaklee I have the opportunity to realize my dreams.
My current customers are constantly calling me to tell me about their Shaklee success stories. It makes me so happy to hear their stories. I thank my lucky stars that I found Shaklee when I did and would like to thank Lisa V for introducing me to Shaklee. I also would like to thank my Uplines, Laurie and Marci S for all of their help and support as well as my friends and customers for their support and friendship.
Shaklee has truly changed my life. Thank you Shaklee.

Relief from Migraine Headaches –Eileen
I'd suffered from headaches since I was a child. As I got older my headaches progressed and I've been suffering from migraines since 1992. I've had Ct scans and MRI's taken and have taken different medications which didn't work.
When a migraine strikes, I go to the hospital to receive injections. I would start to dehydrate, feel nauseous and dizzy, have blurred vision, and my blood pressure would drop. I'd go to the hospital when I couldn't take the pain anymore, and aspirin would no longer help and would be there for eight to ten hours until the pain subsided.
Doctor's suggested that I write a diary because they thought the migraines could be food related. I knew they weren't, but kept the diary anyway. There were times when I would go to work and would have to leave because the migraine was so bad and I was afraid I wouldn't be able to drive home.
I'd even tried going to a headache research clinic and have taken so many different medications, for example, Zomig, Imitrex, etc. The doctors suggested that I be on medication for the rest of my life, taking a preventative medication which could damage my liver in the future.
I became so depressed. I couldn't go anywhere and was always tired. I was afraid to do anything strenuous for fear of getting a headache and I missed so many special occasions. I would take an aspirin every day so I wouldn't get a migraine but that didn't always help. I even made the decision to not have children because it was so hard to deal with my pain that I was afraid I wouldn't be able to take care of them. I felt my migraines were actually taking over my life.
In March 2000, I was introduced to Shaklee products through a friend, Barbara, who also had suffered from migraines. I started taking Shaklee Basics and Energizing Soy Protein. In just a matter of days I felt great! I wasn't tired anymore. I actually felt like a totally different person. It's a miracle!! I can't believe how great I feel and I would like to thank Barbara for introducing me to Shaklee and Shaklee for the great products. I have my life back!
