Probiotic Complex

Optiflora® Probiotic Complex

The truth is, what we eat has to be digested.  What we digest is what we put in our mouth.  We don’t think about it, we don’t know it is happening until we get “sick.”

Yes, the intestinal track plays a positive role in your health.  The root of many health problems are related to an imbalance of intestinal bacteria.  You want to be healthy; then take care of your gut flora.

How do you do that?  Great question, glad you asked.

First, let’s take a look at why this is important.

Simply stated, it is the bacteria in our intestines that digest the food.  Yes, these are the good bacteria. Your body contains about 100 trillion bacteria.  (That is about 10 times the number of cells you have in your body).

It is the type and the quantity and quality of these micro-organisms that interact in your gut that can cause or prevent or encourage the development of many diseases.

They say the proper ratio of 85% good to 15% bad bacteria is the optimum ratio.  But how would we know?  Are we supposed to put a tube up our back side for samples?  I think not!

Anyway, maintaining that kind of ratio has over 30 beneficial pharmacological actions:  Allergies, acne, herpes, food and wheat allergies, common cold, pneumonia, and liver diseases, just to name a few.

What get this out of whack?  Sugar/fructose, refined grains, processed foods, chlorinated water, pollution, antibacterial soaps, agriculture chemicals and pesticides.

So what are the symptoms? Gas, bloating, constipation, fatigue, nausea, headaches, sugar cravings and refined carbs are some.

Ok! I am convinced!  So how to I keep the flora in my gut healthy?

Most of the way to get the right bacteria balance is to eat fermented foods; Kim chee, Lassi (an Indian yogurt drink), fermented raw milk, or various pickled fermentation of cabbage, sauerkraut, turnips, eggplant, cucumbers, onions, squash or carrots.

Obviously, these are not on my daily menu.

However, thank to Dr. Shaklee and the Shaklee Company has developed a probiotic that actually carries live beneficial bacteria safely through acidic condition of the stomach with a state-of-the-art, triple coated, encapsulated capsule.

This simply means, you don’t have to plan a menu of fermented foods if you don’t want to, and by simply taking 1 Shaklee probiotic a day, you are getting the good bacteria to the right place every day.  If you want to be more specific,  It also delivers guaranteed live probiotics Bifidobacterium longum and Lactobacillus acidophilus, along with the prebiotics FOS and inulin and provides gammatocopherol, a nutrient associated with colon health. (That was a mouthful)!

Residual Income Specialist

Residual Income Specialist

What is a residual income specialist?

Great question!

First we have to define residual.

Residual is something that continues after the event has occurred.  I like to think of it as when we have an earthquake there are usually many aftershocks.  These are a result of the major quake.  Maybe not as large as the original, but a continuation of a series of earthquakes, or residual quakes.

Another form of residual is with income.  We hear all the time of actors, writers, insurance agents, and network marketers who have residual income.  They do the work once, but get paid on the same work many more time because the product or service is still being used.  If I sell you a Shaklee vitamin, I will earn a small profit on that sale.  As long as you continue to use the Shaklee vitamin, I will receive residual income but do not have to sell you on the effectiveness or the efficacy of the product.

A residual income specialist is then someone who informs someone of the benefits of products or services that they are familiar with and enjoy using, and then share those products or services with other people.

Why is it important to become a residual income specialist?

I feel the reason is simple and straight forward.  We all have basic needs for food and shelter.  These things come at a cost.  The cost can be described in many ways.  The nicer the shelter, the more natural the food, the more it is going to cost.  A homeless person may have little shelter and little food, but the cost is minimal.  Someone living in a very nice house who eats natural, organic food, would be spending a lot more.

How much are you willing to spend on these basics?  If you are willing to work, save, and invest in yourself, do you want to continue doing the same thing over and over for the rest of your life?  How about if you write a book, be a musician with a famous song and get paid every time a new book or record is sold?  I see the problem is that I am not a famous writer or an accomplished musician.

What if I wanted to get residual income without having to have a special degree, licenses, or fame?

That is where network marketing shines.  All we are doing is moving products or services through a vein of like minded people who will use and be loyal to a product or service.  Their only job is to share those products or services with other people.  An author will hold book fairs, a musician will hold concerts, a financial planner will hold meetings, and a actor or actress will by hounded by the paparazzi.  This is if they are famous.

Let me show you how you can become a residual income specialist by using Shaklee as a vehicle to achieve your goals.  The only limit to your income will be limited to my how much you do and how much you are willing to help other people.

My goal is to help people become healthy, wealthy, and wiser.  Since your health is your wealth, you must first take are of your body.  Once you are on the path to good health, your wealth will continue to build as you make sound financial decisions that will affect your future, your retirement, and your family.

Every day we work, we talk about how we can hardly wait for the weekend.  How would you like everyday to be Saturday?  You can when you build up enough residual income to sustain your lifestyle.  Start now and it will be in the near future when every day becomes Saturday.

Keeping your health with Shaklee


Artificial dyes may induce adverse effects
What kind of adverse effects could be lurking in these products?

When it comes to your health, it is important that you maintain it on a minute by minute basis.  I know what you are thinking!  “You’re crazy,” you say! Let me explain!

When you get up in the morning, you go brush your teeth.  Did you know that your mouth is one of the biggest harbors of wildlife in the form of bacteria? Much of the bacteria comes  from what you eat.  A substantial amount of mouth bacteria is primed to do real damage.  Think of your mouth as the doorway to the rest of you. Poor dental health can contribute to other very serious conditions like heart disease, stroke, and even cancer.  How long does it take to decide if you’re going to brush your teeth twice a day?

Now that you’re up and ready, you start thinking about getting some food in your stomach.  What are you going to eat?  Maybe start with a stop at a local fast food store? Starting with a soft drink that contains sugar and caffiene.  Both of which are added to the right mix of other ingredients that help you get hooked.  Along with phosphoric acid, malic, and tartaric acid, all kept with a controversial additive known as brominated vegetable oil, also known as a flame retardant.

On with the bacon.  Yes, one of my favorite breakfast foods.  What is it that gives that taste, that flavor that has been used in just about every food imaginable?  Could it just happen to be those nitrites, which inhibit bacteria and lengthens the shelf life as well as the food’s appeal?  When we cook it, it combines with other chemicals to form carcinogens which many health organizations warn against.

Our busy lives may preclude taking the time to prepare many of our meals.  Our children may be whining for that junk snack that their friends get to eat.  In moments of weakness, stress, or just plain desire, we open up the freezer and pull out the TV dinner or go out to eat.  What we don’t don’t doesn’t hurt us and chemical listings be damned.  However, if we knew a little bit more about what chemicals were in the food, what they might do to us, and why they were there, maybe we would a bit more discerning of of what eat and what we prepare for our families.

Take artificial dyes for instance.  Almost all processed foods contain some type of artificial coloring to make it more attractive.  Now studies are showing links between hyperactivity in children and these dyes.  Studies in the 1950s showed a particular link between the yellow #5 and asthma symptoms.   Whether it is true or not is always being debated. Yet we still don’t know what other links to disease may exist by putting these dyes into our bodies merely to make the food look good.

High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is a sweetener that is derived from corn and is much cheaper to make than sugar from cane.  This is being used in an infinite number of products and beverages.  Some experts believe that it is HFCS that may be the cause for our veritable epidemic of obesity.  The claim is that our bodies metabolize it differently than cane sugar.  It is my belief that just as the HFCS has made many more products a more affordable, it seems to be that the reduced cost means they can consume more.  Why not take a specific route to do two things?  Eliminate or reduce HFCS and sugar intake.

Aspertame is another sweetner that is in many of our products and beverages.  Claiming the fact that there are fewer calories,  you can once again enjoy more of the product.  Once again it is a difference of opinion as to what it can do your your body.   Maybe it isn’t a disease or cancer or other illness, but things like headaches, migraines, vision problems, tinnitus, depression, joint pain, insomnia, heart palpitations, and muscle spasms.  Is it worth your health to ingest these foods if you would experience these side effects?

Last, but not least is the whole Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) controversy.  These transgenes are capable of producing proteins in the plants that have never been in the human diet over the course of human evolution, stretching back thousands, even millions of years.  It would stand to reason then that you are ingesting these glyphosate residues.  Once again, why would we want to consume products that have been genetically modified with a gene that is designed to kill every plant that it is sprayed on except the one that it is supposed to resist?

Every day, every minute, we are faced with these health choices and I have just named a few.  In my Shaklee business, I can eliminate many of these issues by simply buying Shaklee products, knowing they are all natural, without artificial  dyes, preservatives, sweetners, and are non-GMO.

Sure, they don’t have all the products that we use everyday, so it behooves us to be diligent in examining the other foods we eat and be cognizant of the fact that we are constantly being tricked by every advertising and marketing company to hide or conceal the identity of many of these artificial or synthetic additives

What kind of adverse effects could be lurking in these products?
