How healthy are you……really?!

For years I thought I was healthy. I think many of us think of “healthy” as the absence of obvious disease or illness.  Well I’m here to tell you that your body is constantly trying to tell you it needs help through various symptoms, such as cold feet, pms, grinding your teeth, stuttering, snoring, acne (to name just a few) that most of us think are “normal”!  You just need to learn how to listen to your body!  😉

Twenty years ago, a friend of mine, Heidi, introduced me to a health & wellness company called Shaklee.   As much as she tried to persuade me to try their vitamins, I let the information go in one ear and out the other!  “I don’t need vitamins”….”I’m  healthy”…. “I feel great”….I would say to myself!  It wasn’t till about 6 months later I happen to mention to her that I really needed to find some skincare products to start using on my face (I think every woman starts thinking about those things in their 30’s!).   Heidi immediately mentioned how her upline Shaklee person would be happy to give me a free facial using their skincare line.

Here’s the funny thing…..I only said “Yes” out of pure guilt!  Heidi had not been pushy at all during those 6 months, but I just had always found an excuse not to give their products a try on the occasions that she had mentioned them.  Anyway….going for that facial was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

The line was great….the woman had a cassette tape informational program with which you could earn credit towards products and I figured….”Hey…free is good!”  I learned a lot from those cassettes…..enough to “dip my toe in” and give their multi-vitamin and their Alfalfa a try. 

Within 10 days of starting on the multi….I stopped falling asleep on the couch at 8:30/9:00 and started staying awake with my husband till 11:00/11:30 and slept better than ever.  I also noticed my sinuses clear up immensely from the Alfalfa.  No more snoring for me and when allergy season arrived….no symptoms…. AT ALL! And normally I SUFFERED with hayfever symptoms….itchy eyes, scratchy throat and literally living with tissues to my nose for almost 8 months of the year!  Amazing results!

Well, as you can imagine…I was floored! I slowly changed brands to see what I would like or not like, knowing that with Shaklee’s money back guarantee…I’d have nothing to lose if I didn’t happen to like a particular product. 

That was almost 19 years ago now…and I’ve never looked back!  Now I’d like to  share a list with you. Do you know anyone with these symptoms?

  • Frizzy, dry hair
  • Losing hair
  • Acne
  • Allergies
  • Snoring
  • Being primarily a mouth breather
  • Bruxism (grinding of the teeth)
  • Excess plaque on teeth
  • Stuttering
  • Asleep by 8:30/9:00 pm, once in a relaxed state
  • Out of breath easily
  • Loss of breast size after having babies
  • PMS
  • Arthritis
  • Restless Leg Syndrome
  • Charlie Horses
  • Cold Feet (that just won’t warm up)
  • Cracked, dry heels
  • Foot  Odor
  • Depression
  • Cold Sores

I’m sure you’d agree they’re all quite common. Interesting thing is…like I said before…20 years ago, I would have bet money that I was “healthy” and didn’t need vitamins.   Believe it or not….the list above were all the symptoms I had BEFORE starting on Shaklee, which vanished within 2 years of taking their products! 

What people need to realize is that symptoms are just your body’s way of saying… ”Help…something’s not right”.  For example…most people “cure” their cold feet by wearing socks to bed! Well that would be like thinking you could fix a low-oil problem in your car by putting a band-aid over the lit-up oil light.  Socks just mask the symptom…but that symptom is a classic sign of bad circulation, which left untreated, leads to more serious problems as years go by. For me, the unexpected fix was Shaklee’s Vitamin E Complex. I started taking it to balance my hormones, in hopes that it would clear up my under-the-skin acne issues, which it did!  But I also experienced the wonderful side-BENEFIT of it improving my circulation to the point of no more cold feet! (Unlike the many medications that cause side-EFFECTS!)  Found out later this seems to run in my mother’s side of the family and my grandmother almost couldn’t walk by her mid-seventies because the circulation in her legs had become so limited over the years!  So nice to know, I avoided such a possible fate!

So, I ask you…..how healthy are YOU….really?!
