The Cost of a Woman Working a Job Outside of the Home


It appears that the average woman is bringing home about $400-$500 dollars a week. Now there are of course some who make more and some who make less, but this seems to be the average depending on where you live.

The majority of these women have children. By the time they pay for child care, gas, clothing, food, etc they get to keep approximately ½ of their take home pay.

So for being away from their families for 40-50 hours per week they get to keep about $200-$250 of what they earn.

That is sad.

Because we all know that working a job then coming home to “work” your second job, which is taking care of your family, causes a hectic and frazzled lifestyle where one never seems to get caught up. It seems like everyone suffers and no matter how hard they try in every aspect, the woman often ends up feeling guilty on some level.

But what else can they do? When you are counting on every dime to make ends meet, what else is there? There is an alternative.

Now what if I could show you women who make $400-$500 a week and more and they get to stay home with their children? They are there for every school function, play, game, etc. Would you be interested in seeing how they do it?

I was and this is what I found out:

  • You will never get ahead always working for someone else.
  • You will never have real job security working for someone else.
  • You can start up, run and grow your own business without giving up your day job.
  • You can do this in as little as 5-10 hours a week to start out.
  • There are legitimate ways to make a good living for your family and still help others.
  • Its main cost is the determination of wanting something better for you & your family.


Click on the links below to see a just a sampling of real people who gave up the daily grind working for someone else and grabbed hold of the dream of working for themselves and made it work!

For Moms - Lots of people want to stay home with (and for) their kids while they're growing up, but they can't afford it. Meet several moms who, for a variety of reasons, were in this same situation, and all found what they were looking for in Shaklee.

Sharing the Dream  - Many have been laid off from their jobs. Having that safety net of their dream made all the difference.

Jenni and Nathan Oates - After a period of terrible losses, they had lost their ability to dream. But thanks to Shaklee, they are finding more joy in life as they chart a new course for their family.

Diane – as working mom trying to make ends meet, Shaklee helped Diane realize a big dream she had for herself and her daughter - a home of their own.

Bonnie - Bonnie loves being a stay-at-home mom… but she wanted something more.

Allergies – Kick Them to the Curb



April showers may bring May flowers, but something else often comes along for the ride – allergies.

Are you suffering with allergies?

You can take a little comfort in knowing that there are many people who are suffering right along with you.

But you don’t have to face a life of suffering, painful shots or drugs with nasty side effects.

Have you ever thought of trying a nutritional approach?

Below are some products that many people who have suffered with allergies have found great relief with.

Alfalfa – Yes, I said Alfalfa. Many people are shocked to hear me suggest alfalfa as a great remedy for seasonal allergies. They think it’s odd that taking a product derived from a plant can actually help alleviate their allergic symptoms to other plants. And actually I have known people whose allergies worsen when they pass by a field of alfalfa that’s just been mowed. But alfalfa when ingested, actually works as a natural antihistamine. It is one of nature’s oldest herbs and has been used safely for thousands of years for many ailments. Children and adults can safely take Alfalfa and it is one of the few herbs that can be safely taken with most medicines.

Alfalfa is a storehouse of nutrients. Its tap root reaches down as deep as 20 feet, searching out nutrients and minerals from deposits in the soil, while its leaves gather large amounts of chlorophyll through the natural process of photosynthesis.

Alfalfa Complex is a Shaklee Signature Formula originally developed by Dr. Shaklee.

We use only the finest alfalfa grown in California, ensuring a wide range of nutrients, including calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium, as well as chlorophyll, bioflavonoids, trace minerals, and vitamins.

Natural source of alfalfa:
  • Contains no fungicides, bacteriocides, synthetic hormones, growth regulators, or chemicals
  • Each serving provides 300 mg of calcium, about as much as in a glass of milk


*Learn more about Alfalfa here: Alfalfa Complex - deeply rooted nutrition


Vitamin C – Vitamin C is a wonderful antioxidant that not only helps you prevent colds and flu, but by its very nature of boosting your immune system, it helps your body handle the onslaught on allergens in your environment.
Many people often end up with sinus infections after a bad case of allergies and antioxidants like Vitamin C can help to prevent that.



NutriFeron  - Nutriferon increases the production of your body’s natural interferon, which is a critical activator of the immune system. NutriFeron works at the cellular level, by rapidly activating your immune system’s defenses*


Here are a few other products that some people with severe allergies take along with the above mentioned ones:

OmegaGuard - promotes heart, joint and brain health and helps with allergies*

Garlic - helps retain normal blood pressure and helps immune system*

OptiFlora Probiotics - provides dietary support for the normal, healthy balance of intestinal microflora.

Don’t suffer anymore! Get your body back in balance and save money, too! Try our allergy relief system today!

Help with Insomnia


Do you suffer from insomnia?

We have all been there. We’re exhausted, we go to bed hoping for a good night’s sleep only to watch the clock…all…night…long. Ugh! Why won’t our brains stop thinking so much and just let us rest?!

I hate the times when my brain has me mulling over every mistake I’ve made, every stupid thing I’ve said or done, when all I want to do is sleep!

Those are the occasional insomnia nights, but what if it becomes chronic? What if every night is like that? What is a safe way to get to sleep without turning to drugs?

One quick way to cure insomnia is exercise. If you think you are too tired during the day to exercise, still give it a try. Just a little exercise can do you a world of good and it will give you the energy boost you need to tackle your day.

I’m not saying you have to train like you are entering a triathlon. Easy exercise like walking, light aerobics and lifting light weights can be enough. Just do something, anything, to get moving.
As we all know, exercise helps us build strength and stamina as well as lose weight.

But did you know it also helps us sleep better? It really does.

Just make sure you don’t exercise too late at night or the energy boost it gives you may cause you to stay up later, defeating the purpose of getting more rest.

Get up earlier and do your exercise. I know it seems hard at first, but try it for a week and stick with it. You’ll be surprised at how much more energy you have and how much easier it is to fall asleep.

Another thing to consider is what are you eating and drinking during the day? We all know how caffeine can keep us awake, but many other foods can, too. Too much sugar is a huge contributor to insomnia. Sugar is not just in cakes and candies, but also in processed box and canned foods, which are loaded with sugar and salt. These convenience foods are big culprits in causing insomnia.

It always goes back to more fruits and vegetables, less red meat, less fat and sodium. Isn’t it funny how so many health related problems are caused by poor nutrition and how the answer is always the same?

Not enough vitamins and minerals is another problem. It is impossible to get everything your body needs from diet alone. Supplements are necessary to fill in the gaps.

When our bodies don’t have enough of the right nutrients to build healthy cells and maintain our systems properly, then the body is working harder than it should just to keep going. Without enough of the right nutrients to do its job effectively, something has to give and often the inability to get a good night’s sleep is a first sign.

A good multi-vitamin/multi-mineral with enough of wholesome nutrients is crucial to building the foundation to good health.

Calcium with magnesium is wonderful in helping the muscles relax.

And for the occasional times when our brains won’t shut down and let us sleep, we have an awesome product that is non-habit forming and works quickly - Shaklee’s Gentle Sleep Complex. This unique Shaklee combination features passion flower, German chamomile, and valerian. Valerian has been used for over a thousand years to help maintain a calm state, promote relaxation, and foster restful sleep.*

I love how this product just helps me fall asleep and stay asleep without feeling groggy the next day.

So exercise, eating right and supplementing a good diet are all natural and healthy ways you can fix your insomnia, whether it is just the occasional night of thinking too much or if your insomnia becomes more chronic.

You do have alternatives to the drugs that can make you sicker and more and more dependent on them for a good night’s sleep.

Well that and a good conscience, but that’s a whole other talk show. :)

To your good health,
Julie

An Example of How Prevention is Cheaper than Treatment


I had to laugh. 

My husband's work has a flex spending program where if you turn in up to $200 of out of pocket medical expenses, they reimburse you. 

We had the hardest time coming up with $200! 


We ended up using our co-pays for the chiropractor for the few adjustments we had last year. 

Between the 3 of us we just barely had $200 to turn in for the year! That's right, we barely had $200 in out of pocket medical expenses for the year, most being just the $30 co-pays we had for chiropractic adjustments. 


His coworkers were flabbergasted. Most spend more than $200 a month! 


And people say vitamins are expensive. Ha!


Prevention is way cheaper and a whole lot more fun!

Earth Day - Starts at Home


You can eliminate the toxins in your home.

Let's celebrate Earth Day today, April 22 by eliminating the toxins in our homes first.

Did you know that the household cleaners that people use everyday pollute the environment more than big industry does?

There are toxic chemicals going down drains everyday and these chemicals have been shown to cause many, many serious health problems from asthma to cancer.

Why poison your family in the hope for a clean home when there are safer and more cost effective ways to get your home clean?

Shaklee makes wonderful, very concentrated cleaners that are non toxic and biodegradable.


So what are your plans for helping the Earth on her day? 
You can join the many groups out there planting trees, picking up garbage or any number of activities or you can start with just your little corner of the world by choosing not to poison it.

Celebrate Earth Day everyday with Shaklee.

Click this link to see how > Earth Day & Shaklee

Don’t forget – you have until April 30, 2014 to order your Get Clean Starter Kit (either regular scent or fragrance free) and receive a free product of our Scour Off Heavy Duty Paste. This is the same product I use to clean my oven, my grill and even the gunk off the truck wheels and it’s all safe, non-toxic and very inexpensive!

Cancer Prevention Webinar



Click here to listen and watch:Cancer Prevention Webinar

With Cancer Researcher Dr. Steve Chaney, PhD, Nutritionist Barbara Lagoni and Jo Coogan

Renown cancer researcher Dr. Steve Chaney, professor emeritus University of North Carolina Medical School discusses the 3 stages of cancer.

Dr. Chaney will explain in his simple easy-to-understand manner, what we can do to prevent the initiation of cancer caused by damage to the DNA within our cells and then other ways we can prevent the progression of cancer by strengthening our immune system so it can zap cancer cells when they do form (a daily event in our bodies, by the way).

With cancer striking 1 out of every 3 women and one out of every 2 men this is a very important topic all of us will want to understand.

This is a pre-recorded webinar. You can start and stop it whenever you like, but you will not be able to participate in the question and answer period.

Please share this with anyone who has been touched by cancer and is looking for information.

After listening, please feel free to contact us by clicking the "Contact Us" tab up top and fill out our no obligation form.

Look what Shaklee's Scour Off Heavy Duty Paste Did!


This past weekend we had a cleaning challenge on our recently purchased used pickup. It had this terrible brown gunk on the wheels that had carmelized. It was on there so thick and so hard you could barely scrape it off with your nail. It looked like it had been on there for years and my husband thought there was no way you could get it off. He was talking about the hundreds of dollars it would take to replace them.

He doubted that even my Scour Off could do it. I said let me try. So I grabbed a bucket of water, my Scour Off and an old toothbrush. In a matter of a few minutes I had that entire wheel sparkling like new and no scratches. My husband was flabbergasted. And the cool part was my six year old wanted to help and I could let him because Shaklee’s Scour Off is non-toxic. It’s safe and it works like nothing I have ever known.

The bad part was my six year old in his enthusiasm to help had grabbed his current toothbrush from out of the bathroom and used it! Luckily I realized it before bedtime!

It’s fun letting your kids help and know that they won’t be poisoned. And it sure is fun to prove your husband wrong when he says no way will your Shaklee get that stuff off! He loves Shaklee and now he loves it even more!

We guarantee you will too. You just have to try it.

April 2014 Newsletter


Welcome to our Celebrating Earth Day April 2014 Newsletter!

Shaklee has always celebrated Earth Day everyday and we are always excited to share how much the Environment means to us.

Home should be the safest, healthiest place in the whole world. But, today’s insulated air-tight homes are filled with chemicals that have never been tested for human toxicity - in the air, the walls, carpets, and in the household cleaners, which can carry some pretty scary warning labels.

Below is some information on how cleaning products affect you, your children and your environment. See how these products affect you, what the EPA and what pediatricians have to say.

  • 81,000 chemicals have been registered with the EPA in the past 30 years and fewer than 20% have been tested for toxicity.
  • 90% of all poison exposures occur in the home.
  • 90% of our time is spent indoors. EPA reports that air pollution is up to 5 times higher inside than outside.
  • EPA studies have shown that elevated concentration of household chemicals persist in the air. Long term exposure to chemicals inside our homes may be harmful to us and our families.
  • One out of every 13 children have asthma.
  • Common household cleaners give off fumes that can increase the risk of children developing asthma.
  • The average U.S. household generates more than 20 pounds of hazardous waste each year.

What’s in your cleaners?

Sodium Hydroxide – Inhalation is immediately irritating to the respiratory tract. Contact can cause severe damage to the eyes, skin, mouth and throat. Can cause liver and kidney damage.
May be found in:

  • Dishwashing liquids
  • Laundry products
  • Oven cleaners
  • Scouring cleansers
  • Tub & tile cleaners


Hydrochloric Acid – Can cause severe damage to the skin. Can be harmful to health if inhaled. Can be fatal if swallowed.
May be found in:

  • Odor eliminators
  • Toilet bowl cleaners


Butyl Cellosolve – Can cause irritation and tissue damage from inhalation. A person who spends 15 minutes cleaning scale off shower walls could inhale three times the acute exposure limit.
May be found in:

  • All purpose cleaners
  • Cleaning wipes
  • Degreasers
  • Floor polish
  • Rug shampoos
  • Toilet bowl cleaners
  • Tub & tile cleaners
  • Window cleaners
