I always thought that people just get clumsier as they get older, but I was at a health seminar a few years ago and the doctor explained it in a new light! It’s not that people get clumsier as they age, they just lose the ability to react fast enough to catch themselves when they stumble, causing them to actually fall which can lead to a broken hip, etc. This can be devastating for people who have a fear of falling especially those who have osteoporosis.
A quality protein is essential for every cell in your body, for optimal health and prevention of disease. Plus, if your body is healing from anything…. whether it be surgery, a broken bone, stitches, etc., the very best thing you can do for yourself is up your intake of a quality protein….2-3 a day is known to really speed up the healing process! But a TRULY quality & safe protein supplement can be hard to find.
A few years ago I attended a health & wellness seminar in which one of the speakers, who was a registered nurse, shared some news regarding C-Section babies not getting enough good bacterial flora from their mother, due to not going through the birth canal. She continued to explain how this lack of bacterial flora is being linked to a number of health issues such as allergies, asthma, eczema, obesity, celiac disease and food allergies. And she also mentioned that some medical facilities are looking into giving newborn C-section babies a probiotic after birth, to help bring up the levels of good bacteria in their gut.
I had heard for some time now that if a person has allergies or sensitivities to certain foods, it can be helped and even reversed by replenishing their gut (lower intestine) with plenty of quality good bacteria in the form of a probiotic. There was a woman who was lactose intolerant for years who happened to start on Shaklee’s Vitalizer (which includes their probiotic, called Optiflora). She took it faithfully every day and about a year later she discovered she was no longer lactose intolerant! I thought this was amazing and wondered if this could be an easy answer to some people’s food sensitivities?!
We’ve all experienced it….you go to bed and you can just tell you’re not going to be able to go to sleep and/or be able to sleep deep due to one reason or another. So most of us have resorted to over-the-counter sleep aids, i.e. Tylenol PM. But what you might also have noticed is that when its time to wake up, it takes a while for you to shake that “sleepy” feeling, to actually feel like you’re finally awake. I found a product that DOES NOT have you feeling that way when its time to wake up!!
Have you ever been woke up from a sound sleep to the excruciating pain of a charlie horse?! Ugh… then there’s that panic to fly out of bed and, as much as you know it’s going to hurt, force your heel down to the floor to make that pain stop!! Man, although my last charlie horse was probably 22 years ago, I will never forget what that’s like, because it was happening to me about 3 times a week!
You work all day, then you do what needs to be done in the evening, and just when you’re looking forward to a nice evening with the one you love….you’re just so exhausted that once you sit still, you’re asleep by 9:00? Sound familiar?
Our children today are at such a disadvantage from those 100 years ago. I’m not talking about material things, I’m talking about something much more important than that…..the opportunity to grow up truly healthy. One hundred years ago, people ate food literally for nourishment, and the food that was available actually DID provide nourishment. Today, this lack of available nutrients coupled with eating so many processed foods which in turn, deplete you of even more nutrients, is causing major health issues even in our children. Things that use to be considered adult diseases are now increasing amongst our children. And believe it or not, this lack of nutrients also has a major effect on our children’s demeanor and behavior, i.e. how happy they are, how they handle a stressful situation, how much patience they have, how well they are in control of their emotions, etc. I’ve seen first hand what a positive impact a well-nourished body can have on a child. My focus is on children, because for so many years, they are truly at the mercy of their parents.
What does all this have to do with my new mission, “Helping Kids Find Their Happy Face”? I’ve seen what a negative impact this lack of nutrients has had on our children. My daughter said it to me once when she was in middle school….”I don’t know what’s wrong with the kids in school, Mom, all someone has to do is accidentally bump into someone else and they want to start a fight!” How ridiculous is that…that our children are so on edge and SO INTOLERANT of a simple accident of bumping into someone! And it gets even worse during their pre-teen and teen years, when their hormones are all out of whack! Our own family’s experience with and without supplementation is outlined in an older blog. Click HERE to read it! If you haven’t already read it, I wish you would, it would help explain why I’m so passionate about helping families realize what a difference quality, proven supplementation can make in their child’s physical and mental health.
I’m happy to discuss this in a personal one-to-one with you, either in person or if you don’t live in the the Colorado Springs, CO area, over the phone. Through a discussion of what’s happening in your family, we can figure out if there’s anything I offer which might help you. It would give me immense pleasure to help YOU “help your kid find their happy face!” Shaklee has a 100% money back guarantee on their products, so if after meeting with me, you decide to give one or two products a try (depending on the age of your child), and a month or two later if you feel like they didn’t make a difference in your child’s mood and/or behavior, then you can simply get your money back…yes, even on an empty bottle! So, why not consider giving it a try….you’ve got nothing to lose, yet so much happiness to gain!!
Every kid deserves a happy face…..so, together, let’s help your child find theirs!!!
