Lose & Win All At the Same Time! Another Chance to Win $10,000!


From Shaklee Health Wise
By Laura Evans

Have you seen the Cinch® Transformation Stories?
Contestants from across the country entered to win $10,000 at our 2012 Global Conference in Las Vegas. Congratulations to Edgar Ortiz for winning the grand prize!

However, all of the contestants are winners for dropping the extra pounds and becoming healthier!

We’ve also started a new Cinch Transformation Challenge! From now until Oct. 31, you can enter for a chance to win $10,000. Get started here!

Maybe you’re thinking your story could be next, and you believe you can do it.  I bet you are excited!
Then, maybe, reality hits you. You realize it isn’t always fun to drink a Cinch® Meal Shake while your family enjoys pancakes on Saturday morning.  Or, maybe, getting up early to squeeze in some exercise while everyone else sleeps in is tougher than you thought.
And, it’s so tempting to enjoy the birthday cake passed around at the office. You don’t want to be antisocial, after all.

Your commitment to getting healthy isn’t always going to be fun or easy.  It is a choice, and one that you make each day, and with each meal.
The results, however, are worth it if you can see the commitment through!

Entrepreneur and motivational speaker Jim Rohn once said, “Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.”

The point is you have to get to the point where you make your new Cinch® lifestyle a HABIT, not a HOBBY.

Below are commitments that you can make over the next 30 days to really follow through on your Cinch transformation:

1. To make a habit stick, try repeating it 16-21 times. Even better, repeat it every day for 30 days.
2. Consistently stick with your choice to lose weight with Cinch.
3. Write down what you eat daily in a journal.
4. Replace two meals a day with Cinch.
5. Commit to walking a mile a day, on average.

So, what could you get out of all of this? How about feeling better, being healthier, saving money, having boundless amounts of energy, and a slimmer waistline!

Develop good habits these next 30 days. They will be the foundation for your personal, long-term healthy transformation.
Here’s to good habits!

The Swine Flu Is Coming (again)



Tell us what you think. Are you going to get the Swine Flu shot or a regular flu shot or both? Neither?


By: Dr. Stephen G Chaney


We are again hearing reports of a possible swine flu pandemic. At this point several cases of swine flu have been reported. The individuals who came down with swine flu all had direct contact with pigs, and all of the cases have been mild so far.


However, we are being urged to get swine flu shots, and some of you have been asking my opinion. With that in mind, I am repeating the column I wrote several years ago at the height of the last swine flu epidemic.

“The swine flu vaccine will be available soon and many of you are asking me three questions:
Is it safe? Is it effective? Should I get swine flu shots?

There is a lot of hype on both sides of the issue, so let me give you some straight talk about safety and effectiveness so that you can use to make up your own mind about whether you want to get a swine flu shot.

Let’s talk about safety first.

You may have heard reports that both the British Health Protection Agency and the US Centers For Disease control have sent out letters to neurologists in Britain and the US asking them to look out for an increase in a brain disorder called Guillian-Barre Syndrome – and to notify their respective governments of all cases of this disease that they diagnose in patients that have received the swine flu shot.

Just in case you are not intimately acquainted with Guillian-Barre Syndrome, it is a disease that attacks the lining of the nerves, leaving them unable to transmit signals to the muscles. This can cause partial paralysis and, if it affects the lungs, can be fatal.

Now that sounds downright scary. But let me tell you the rest of the story. The concern of the British and US governments is based solely on the fact that a similar swine flu vaccine killed more people than it helped in the US in 1976.

Shortly after swine flu vaccinations started in 1976 people started coming down with Guillian-Barre Syndrome. By the time vaccinations were halted 10 weeks later, 500 people had developed the disease and 25 people had died – more than were killed by the virus itself.
It was estimated that one in 80,000 people who were given that swine flu shot developed Guillian-Barre Syndrome, compared to the one in a million who develop the disease when given most seasonal flu shots.

However, I want to emphasize that there is no direct evidence that the current swine flu shot increases the risk of Guillian-Barre Syndrome more than the regular seasonal flu shots.
The British and US governments simply view their warning letters to neurologists as a reasonable precaution under the circumstances.

In short, the risk of developing Guillian-Barre Syndrome or some other serious complication (miscarriages and sudden death are the other complications of most flu vaccines) from the swine flu shot is probably very, very small. It may be no greater than the one in a million chance of developing the disease that is associated with most flu vaccines – but it is not zero.

Now let’s turn to the issue of effectiveness.

There are several things that you should know about the effectiveness of the swine flu shot.
In the first place, there has been an active debate in the scientific community as to whether one shot or two shots will be required to give adequate protection against the swine flu.

Some scientists still think that two shots would be the better option. However, stocks of swine flu vaccine are limited so the recommendation is probably going to be for one shot so that as many people can be immunized as possible.

Secondly, you should know that the swine flu vaccine offers no protection against the seasonal flu and vice versa. Since both strains of flu will be around this fall & winter you need to be vaccinated against both if you really want to avoid the flu.

Finally, there is an interesting age distribution in regard to the susceptibility to the swine flu. It turns out that it is the young people who are most susceptible to the swine flu.

Those of us who are over 50 were apparently exposed to something similar to the current swine flu virus in the past, so we have some residual immunity.

That’s important because it turns out that the swine flu virus is no more deadly than the usual seasonal flu virus. What that means is that the age group that is most susceptible to the swine flu is also the age group for which the swine flu is most likely to be merely a 3 to 5 day inconvenience.

However, there are people for whom the swine flu, or any other type of flu, can be deadly. The people at highest risk are young children, pregnant women, the elderly, people with compromised immune systems, and people with pre-existing diseases like diabetes.

And here’s the interesting part. These are also the people for whom the flu shot is not very effective. The best way to protect these people is to immunize everybody else so that they never get exposed.

The bottom line is that most immunizations make great sense from a public health perspective to protect high risk individuals, which is why they are so strongly supported by the medical community.

However, for healthy individuals with strong immune systems and no pre-existing diseases the risk-benefit ratios are a not so clear cut. Sometimes the risks can outweigh the benefits.

That brings me to the last question – should you get a swine flu shot?

If you are a healthy individual that is a very personal decision, and I won’t presume to make it for you. I’ve just given you some facts that you may not have known about to ponder as you make that decision.

For people who are at risk for developing severe complications from the swine flu itself (young children, pregnant women, the elderly, people with compromised immune systems, and people with pre-existing diseases like diabetes) this is a decision that you should make in consultation with your physician.”

Migraine Testimonies

Below are several testimonies on finding relief from migraines.
Migraines can be so debilitating and it's comforting to see that there are people finding relief.


Migraines Testimonies

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!
