Positive Thinking Fuels Action and Results.



Are you having a hard time staying positive and motivated in your quest to lose weight?

Take a look at what your thoughts are saying. Are they positive or negative?

When you hear those little negative comments creep in, and we all hear them, immediately say, "No! Stop! I am not listening to anything negative!"

Then tell yourself something positive like, "I may not have reached my goal yet, but I am on the right path to health & wellness and I am so proud of myself for taking the steps to get there."

That little positive comment will be the boost you need to take the actions that will get you there.

Need help in reaching your weight loss goal? We can help! Please visit our website: To Be Healthy - Weight Loss or click the "Contact Us" tab up top to get in touch with us personally and we will be happy to help you!


15 Steps to Cardiovascular Health



We all know that having a healthy heart is crucial to a long and healthy life.  Here are 15 steps you can take right now to help you along the path to a healthier heart.

Step 1: Vitamin E, Selenium and Grapeseed Extract

High blood cholesterol is known to be a major risk factor in cardiovascular disease.
High cholesterol is particularly dangerous when it is oxidized. The first step in protecting yourself from the dangers of high cholesterol levels is to prevent its oxidation. (Then work on lowering it.) Vitamin E prevents the oxidation of LDL cholesterol or "bad" cholesterol, and protects arterial walls from free radical damage.

This is a very important factor because LDL oxidation is the first step in the process that leads to hardening of the arteries. Results from a recent study showed that 400 and 800 I of supplemental Vitamin E each day reduced the risk of heart attack in men by 75%.

Here is more Vitamin E can do:

  • It causes dilation of blood vessels, thereby permitting a fuller flow of blood to the heart.
  • It also inhibits coagulation of blood and prevents clots from forming.
  • It decreases the oxygen requirement of a muscle by at least 43% thereby enabling the body to do the same job on less oxygen. (Remember: The heart is a muscle.)


The combined effect of Vitamin E and Selenium is a greater level of antioxidant protection than each of these nutrients would have separately. Grapeseed extract contains proanthocyanidins, which are compounds shown in recent studies to have extremely potent antioxidant properties.


Step 2: Reduce the Amount of Saturated Fat in Your Diet

The blood levels of cholesterol in most people is unaffected by the amount of dietary cholesterol; the real culprit is the consumption of saturated fats. Saturated fats stimulate the liver to produce cholesterol. At least two-thirds of the cholesterol in your body is manufactured in the liver.

Your body makes its own cholesterol because cholesterol is essential to perform certain functions such as:

  • It helps form hormones.
  • It is required for functions of transport & communication systems in cell membranes.
  • 90% is converted into bile acids for digestion


Bile acids contain a lot of cholesterol. Think of bile acids as the natural detergents which our body makes to help us digest food, especially fat. After bile does its essential work in your digestive tract, it is re-absorbed into the bloodstream UNLESS you have a diet high in soluble fiber.

Soluble fiber binds with bile acids (containing cholesterol) in the small intestine to prevent them from being re-absorbed. This soluble fiber containing the absorbed cholesterol is eliminated from the body in fecal waste unless unfriendly microflora unbind the bile acids from the soluble fiber. (See Step 9 below.)

Soluble fiber zeros in on LDL (the "bad cholesterol") and leaves the HDL (the "good cholesterol") alone.


Step #3: Increase Your Fiber Intake to Recommended Levels

The US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) recommends 25 grams of fiber daily for a 2,000 calorie diet. The typical American consumes only 10 grams of fiber. Low fiber diets are associated with heart disease and some forms of cancer.
You should also increase the amount of fruits and vegetables that you eat each day.


Step 4: Maintain Optimal Levels of B Complex Daily

Studies show that the B vitamins folic acid, B6 and B12 help promote a healthy cardiovascular system by helping to maintain low homocysteine levels in the blood.

During normal metabolism, these B vitamins convert the natural biochemical homocysteine to an amino acid. Without this conversion, homocysteine levels accumulate. Research suggest too much homocysteine in the blood can cause damage to blood vessel walls.

Supplementary B6, B12 and folic acid have been shown to lower elevated homocysteine levels. High homocysteine levels can significantly increase the risk of the following severe health problems:

  • Stroke in the large blood vessels
  • Small strokes in the brain that result in mental problems
  • Direct damage to the lining of vessels, causing inefficient blood flow to critical areas of the brain
  • Blockage in the deep veins (thrombosis)
  • Blockages in the arteries of the arms, hands, legs, and feet
  • A 50% increase in the risk of a heart attack.


Daily intake of B-vitamins is important because these water-soluble vitamins are not stored at significant levels in your body. It is best to consume B complex throughout the day to maintain high blood levels of these nutrients (for example, one or more tablet each meal).

Step 5: Ensure Adequate Essential Fatty Acids

We have been told to cut down on fat, but the body needs some fats necessary for health called "essential fatty acids."

Omega-3 fatty acids, play a role in the formulation of prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are hormone-like substances that regulate a wide range of body functions such as blood clotting and inflammation, and help maintain normal blood pressure.

Lecithin is a natural emulsifier that allows the fat-soluble cholesterol to dissolve into the water of the bloodstream so that it may be eliminated.


Step 6: Calcium

Calcium is required for normal heart muscle functions and calcium plays a role in maintaining normal blood pressure. Excess dietary calcium in the digestive tract can bond with the cholesterol-containing bile acids to form compounds that cannot be absorbed through the intestine thereby reducing the blood level of cholesterol.


Step 7: Garlic

Studies show that garlic promotes cardiovascular health by helping to retain normal blood pressure and cholesterol levels when used daily as part of a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet.

Garlic is reported to dissolve plaque and lower plaque-forming blood lipids. These lipids can clog arteries and can lead to atherosclerosis and heart disease.

Research has shown how garlic can lower the blood pressure through the actions of one of its components, methyl allyl trisulfide, which dilates vessel walls.

Two components in garlic, adenosine and allicin, are involved in inhibiting blood platelet aggression, plaque building and clotting. Allicin has also been found to maintain healthy levels of microorganisms.


Step 8: Alfalfa

Alfalfa tablets, made from the leaves of mature alfalfa plants, contain the fibers called “saponins" which soak up cholesterol like a sponge. The minerals in alfalfa are also important for nourishing the heart muscle.


Step 9: Maintain High Levels of Intestinal Microflora

The bowel requires approximately 100 trillion microflora at all times (that about 3 to 5 pounds). These high levels of microflora are very involved in reducing total cholesterol, improving the HDL/LDL ratio, and reducing triglycerides.

Harmful microflora undo the binding of fiber to bile acids that contain cholesterol. (See Step 1.) The friendly microflora crowd out the harmful microflora ( by "competitive inhibition"). This allows the cholesterol to continue on its path toward elimination in fecal waste.


Step 10: Soy Protein

Soy protein has many heart healthy benefits including lowering cholesterol. In 38 studies involving 730 participants adding soy to the diet had phenomenal results:

  • Total cholesterol dropped on average 9%.
  • LDL (bad cholesterol) dropped on average 13%
  • Triglycerides dropped on average 11%
  • HDL (good cholesterol) rose on average 2%


The soy isoflavones (rather than the protein itself) are responsible for the cholesterol-lowering effect. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says, "25 grams of soy protein a day as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease."


Step 11: Milk Thistle

Milk thistle seed extract, in addition to schizandra, reishi mushroom, dandelion, artichoke and turmeric have all been shown to build a healthy liver. Studies on this product show both detoxification and regeneration of liver cells.

  • The liver is involved in the regulation of cholesterol.
  • A sluggish liver leads to high cholesterol.
  • The Reishi mushrooms and the Schizandra Chinensis have antioxidant properties.



Step 12: Ginkgo Biloba and Hawthorn

Ginkgo biloba improves circulation to every cell in the body, including the heart. Ginkgo biloba reduces homocysteine in the blood Hawthorn improves the ability of the heart to pump efficiently in FOUR ways:

  • It allows more oxygen & nutrients to reach the heart
  • It causes blood to flow more smoothly
  • It increases the power of the heart
  • It dilates blood vessels (especially coronary)



Step 13: "CoQ10"

Coenzyme Q-10 is vital for heart health. It helps produce energy in every one of your cells. That is especially important to your major organs. Coenzyme Q-10 also helps prevent LDL cholesterol oxidation.

Resveratrol is believed to be one of the most beneficial compounds found in red wine. Resveratrol has strong antioxidant properties and complements CoQ10 in the prevention of LDL cholesterol oxidation. Resveratrol might help facilitate blood flow.


Step 14: Stop Smoking

Ingredients in cigarette smoke are extremely oxidizing. High cholesterol is particularly dangerous when it is oxidized. Smokers have much higher need for antioxidants. The B Complex vitamins, including 2 forms of vitamin B3 (nicotinic acid and nicotinamide), can reduce nicotine cravings.


Step 15: Exercise, Drink Water and Lose Weight

Everyone knows that the keys to good cardiovascular health are exercise and maintaining your ideal weight. Just a few minutes of exercise per day can increase your level of high-density lipoproteins (HDL or "good" cholesterol). Just 10 minutes of exercise first thing in the morning can increase your metabolic rate for the rest of the day.
Also, consumption of water, so that you are fully hydrated, can increase your metabolic rate 24 hours per day.

Heart Problem & Exercise Changes Testimony




I have a history of heart problems since my early 20’s. My average heart rate was 213 beats a minute for 10 years, called Super Ventricular Tachycardia. My heart would pound so hard, you could literally see it. I was always weak, dizzy and light headed. I didn’t want to take drugs because of the side effects.

After 10 years of this, I had 2 heart surgeries (because my symptoms kept coming back). I was still having problems - a fast heart rate and feeling weak. I was in and out of the hospital every month for a year– test after test – and they still couldn’t figure out why my heart rate was so erratic and fast.

I heard about Shaklee products and how great they were from a friend years before, so I decided to try them. Within 6 weeks of taking the products, it was like night and day for me …. I was no longer weak and I didn’t have to stop at the top of the stairs and catch my breath and my bearings.

The Protein powder made the biggest impact on my health…. I can’t live without it. I had been told back then that I couldn’t have kids because they would have birth defects due to lack of oxygen. Since being on the products, I had a baby who is very healthy and is now 11 years old.

ENTER VIVIX: I’ve always been an avid exerciser since I was 20 years old – aerobic type of activity and weights. I have a particular machine that I work out on called the gauntlet. I typically work out on it for about 35 minutes.

It has taken me 3 or 4 years to get to this level of intensity, otherwise my heart flips and I get weak and have to stop my workout. It takes me a long time to work into another level in my workouts.

In 2 weeks of starting on Vivix, I increased my intensity without my heart flipping and I didn’t get that weak feeling. My face used to get VERY red and hot – not anymore! This is HUGE for my heart!!!

Coronary Heart Disease Testimony



By: Rusty Ost

I would like to address a situation that was brought about by my open-heart surgery.

When I first became involved with Shaklee, it always amazed me when someone who used Shaklee food supplements suffered from some acute or degenerative disease. If Shaklee food supplements were so powerful, why hadn’t the victim been protected?

Now that I’ve had open-heart surgery, I’ve heard people (even friends) say, “I thought you were taking all those vitamins so you would stay healthy. What happened?” I’d like to spend the next few minutes telling you exactly “what happened.”

First of all, let me tell you a little about my background. Both my parents died at an early age of heart disease. Neither one of them had a second chance. My cholesterol level has been as high as 480. When I was in college, it was 360 and no one cared!

In addition to having the familial history of heart disease, I consumed a very high-fat diet. When June and I were first married and she was finishing Pharmacy school, we would eat a half of beef every six months…just the two of us!

Also, during my late teens and early twenties I smoked cigarettes. I gave up cigarettes during my tour of duty in the U S Army in favor of a pipe. I continued smoking a pipe (and an occasional “mooched” cigarette) until I was 40 years of age.

In 1983 we were introduced to Shaklee and we began to study and learn about nutrition and its effect on the body. We began eating low-fat meals and increasing the fiber in our diet. Along with these dietary changes, we began a complete program of Shaklee nutritional supplementation.

I watched my cholesterol level drop to an all time low of 180. I have always monitored my blood pressure and presumed that my blood pressure of 120/80 mm Hg was well within the normal parameters.

In January of 2000 while in Florida on business and vacation, I awoke one morning with pain in my left arm and slight tightness in my chest. It did go away after a short period, but upon returning to Nebraska, I decided to see a doctor to find out why.

He thought my blood pressure was a little high and put me on a very low dose of blood pressure medication. He also determined through blood work that my cholesterol was a little elevated. He did assure me that because of my physical condition and my appearance, he thought a heart attack was out of the question.

We scheduled a complete physical exam because it had been 4 or 5 years since my last exam, and he told me that I might want to consider taking one of the medicines that will lower cholesterol.

Two weeks later I had a physical examination and he explained to me that I was in pretty good health. He had run a lot of tests except for an EKG. I asked him about the EKG and he said that because I had one during my sinus surgery a year previously, it probably wasn’t imperative; but that he would do one anyway. After seeing the results of the EKG, he became concerned and said that it looked like I had an “event” and he referred me to a Cardiologist.

I met with the cardiologist the following week and he reviewed my tests. After examining me, he thought that I was in too good of physical shape to have a heart problem. The EKG did have some irregularities and he wanted to do some additional testing. He ordered an echo-cardiogram and a stress test.

Less than an hour after the stress test was completed at the hospital, he called me at home to tell me that an angiogram would be necessary because the tests showed that part of my heart was dead! I indeed had suffered an “event”…a heart attack at some time.

The angiogram only confirmed the worst. I had several blockages in my coronary arteries and open-heart surgery was indicated…as soon as possible. I had the surgery.

The surgeon performed a quadruple bypass. The four major coronary arteries were blocked at 100%, 99%, 97% and 93%. He says that I am the luckiest man alive and that I should have dropped dead from a heart attack long before now.

When I explained my diet and my program of supplementation with soy protein, essential fatty acids and others; he told me that without those changes to my lifestyle, I probably would not be alive today. He said that the supplements had added 15 years to my life. Without them, I would have needed the surgery 15 years ago and the prognosis would not have been as good.

While recuperating in the hospital, the lady who administered the stress test came to visit me. She just wanted to look at me because she claims that with the very little blood flow to my heart, I should have died on the treadmill! My cardiologist then explained to me that if I returned to work, he would give me just two years to live! Thanks for Shaklee and the choice we had that allowed me to never return to my job again.

To all of you who wonder why someone who takes Shaklee supplements still can have health problems, I hope this somewhat answers your question. Without them, this wouldn’t be a very happy place for Rusty and June Ost.

If they can do this much for someone like me, what can they do when someone begins in better health than I did? 
I think about how much better off I would have been if I had begun Shaklee supplementation at the age of 30 instead of 40…or maybe even 20 years of age? Could I possibly have prevented all of this from happening to me?

Seven years later in 2007, my cardiologist ordered a follow-up echo cardiogram and stress test to see my current state of heart health. The results were phenomenal. The echo cardiogram showed that my heart had recovered and 100% of heart tissue was alive and healthy.

The stress test indicated that I had sufficient blood flow throughout my entire heart. My heart pumping efficiency was normal! I attribute this to my diet and to my program of nutritional supplementation.  Daily I consume Shaklee Soy Protein, a Vitalizer strip, OmegaGuard, CoQHeart, Garlic and a few others.

In 2009, my physician once again ordered the tests. And, once again the tests showed that my heart had totally recovered and my heart health was good. My heart pumping efficiency has actually increased to better than normal.

In addition to the supplements I began taking Vivix Anti-Aging a year earlier and I attribute my continued improvement to that. I seem to be the perfect example of someone who is not just getting older, but actually getting better!

For your own sake and the sake of your family, examine the risk factors, try to lead a healthy lifestyle and take Shaklee food supplements.

An Aspirin a Day? Maybe Not...



By Dr. Steven Chaney, Ph.D

Another popular myth has been busted! I'm sure that you have heard this one before.
Many doctors advise their patients to take a baby aspirin every day to reduce their risk of heart attack.

This recommendation has been repeated so often in the media and in self-help books and web sites that even more people are taking an aspirin every day without even waiting for their doctor to recommend it.

Is this good advice?

Probably not, accordingly to a new study done by Dr. Gerry Fowlkes of the Wolfson Unit for Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease in Edinburgh Scotland.

In a study that he presented at the most recent meeting of the European Society for Cardiology in Barcelona Spain, he and his colleagues followed 3,000 men at very high risk for developing heart disease for an average of eight years. Half of the group was randomly assigned to take an aspirin every day and the other half was given a placebo.

At the end of eight years there was no difference in the rate of heart attacks or stroke - or risk of death from any cause - between the two groups.

In other words, an aspirin a day did not decrease the risk of heart attack and stroke and had no discernable health benefits in this study.

Even worse, there were 34 major bleeds in people taking the aspirin compared to only 20 in people taking the placebo.

And if you looked at internal bleeding that was so serious that it required hospitalization, the risk was almost double for the aspirin users compared to the placebo users.

The conclusion of this study was that for otherwise healthy people the risks of taking aspirin outweigh the benefits. The scientists cautioned that for people who have already had a heart attack the benefits of taking an aspirin a day might outweigh the risks.

But I would encourage you to investigate natural alternates rather than relying on a drug to reduce your risk of heart disease.

For example, several recent clinical studies have shown that as little as 500 mg/day of Omega-3 fatty acids, whether from fish or from supplements, can reduce the risk of a second heart attack in someone who has already had one heart attack by 30-40%.

And, of course, the Landmark Study showed that people who have used the Shaklee supplements for 20 years or more have 1/3 the incidence of angina, heart attack, stroke or congestive heart failure as do people using other company's multivitamins or no supplements at all.

To your Health,
Dr. Steven Chaney
Dr. Chaney has a BS in Chemistry from Duke University and a PhD in Biochemistry from UCLA. He currently holds the rank of Professor at a major university where runs an active cancer research program and has published over 100 scientific articles and reviews in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

A Simple Way to Cut Your Heart Attack Risk



By: Joseph McCaffrey, MD, FACS

(See my notes in RED)

Most of us know we should reduce the salt (sodium chloride) in our diet to help control blood pressure and reduce the risk of having a heart attack or stroke. While the amount of sodium we eat is important, it's not the whole story.

One study has confirmed what other studies have suggested for years: sodium intake alone isn't as important as the ratio of sodium to potassium.

The study was reported in the January issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine.1

It evaluated the records of 2275 patients who are being followed as part of the Trials of Hypertension Prevention (TOHP) studies begun in the early 1990s.

What the study showed was that over a 10-15 year period, 193 participants had a serious cardiovascular episode (heart attack, stroke, need for coronary artery bypass or death due to stroke or heart attack).

They then compared the risk of these problems to the level of both sodium and potassium in the diet. They measured these levels by looking at how much of each was excreted in the urine each day. This is an easier and more accurate way to get a handle on how much potassium or sodium someone is taking in than recording everything they eat.

It works because our bodies maintain their internal balance of sodium and potassium by excreting any excess in the urine. The researchers found that there was little relationship between the levels of either sodium or potassium and the risk of a stroke or heart attack. What did make a difference was the ratio of sodium to potassium.

People with high sodium levels compared to their potassium levels fared the worst. They were the most likely to have a heart attack or stroke. Those with low sodium and higher potassium levels did the best. They stayed the healthiest.

What does this mean to you? Cut out the salt and increase your potassium.

If you do that, be a little careful – too much potassium can be toxic. Anyone who has kidney disease needs to be especially cautious and shouldn't add potassium to their diet without talking to their doctor.

To reduce the sodium in your diet, you're going to need to read the labels on any prepared foods you buy. Most packaged and canned foods are extremely high in sodium (although I did finally find a brand of crushed tomatoes that doesn't have any salt added).

When it comes to increasing potassium, many people think about bananas. Bananas are relatively high in potassium, but they also are calorie dense and high on the glycemic index so they aren't my first choice to add potassium to my diet.

Here's what I do.

I drink tomato juice or a tomato-based vegetable juice. One cup has about 500 mg of potassium, about the same as in a banana.

Tomato juice also contains lycopenes as well as a host of other nutrients. The positive effect of lycopenes on prostate health is well established so I want to be sure to get them in my diet.

Unfortunately, manufacturers usually add a lot of salt, but low salt and no salt are available if you look for them. If you buy organic, so much the better. (My note: I highly recommend organic tomatoes as tomatoes are high on the list for pesticides and herbicides)

I add a little potassium chloride (NoSalt is one brand) to my tomato juice because I think it improves the taste and it adds some more potassium.

Also, I enjoy the taste of horseradish and there are some studies that show the glucosinolates in horseradish support liver function and suppress the growth of some cancer cells, so I add that to my tomato juice drink as well.

Cut your salt intake and have a glass of tomato juice every morning and you'll reduce your risk of stroke and heart attacks. You'll also be eating one of the nine servings of fruits and vegetables you should have every day.

Joseph F. McCaffrey, MD, FACS is a board-certified surgeon with extensive experience in alternative medicine.

(My note:  I do not like tomato juice or horseradish, and you may not either. I do recommend eating a varied diet of fruits and vegetables. It would be hard to overdose on potassium when consumed in food. Just be careful if you choose to “add” additional potassium.

I take a good multivitamin/multimineral – Vita-Lea that has potassium. Vita-Lea can be safely taken and comes with or without iron as well as with or without Vitamin K for those who are taking blood thinners. Learn more here: Vita-Lea & Foundation Products

Potassium can be toxic if taken in too high amounts or can affect those with kidney disease and possibly affect some medicines. Always be sure to do your research when you are taking medicines or have a health issue. As always, talk to your doctor for advice on your specific health concerns.)
