give your body a pause with 5 x 5 Reset detox

The need for a detox

We often eat the wrong things. And we often do that for way too long.  This can lead to build up of toxins and other unwanted, dangerous substances in the digestion tract. These substances can even find their way into individual cells. This “infiltration” of undesirable elements can create the need for a good, thorough detox.

At this point, many people decide to do something drastic about undesirable symptoms:

  • bloated stomach,
  • sluggish digestion,
  • low energy and
  • poor sleep quality

Often that “something” is a harsh detox program that is difficult to adhere to and feel good about. Some detox programs can be damaging to normal body functions, such as metabolism.

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas, Dallas Health Helpers, talks about immune system health.

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas, Dallas Health Helpers, talks about immune system health.

When the immune system is mentioned, often peoples’ minds go to extremes, thinking of AIDS or some other devastating condition.  Many immune system disorders are life-changing or life-threatening.  But everyone should be concerned about maintaining a healthy, strong system of defense against invaders to the body.

Your immune system is at work 24/7 to guard against foreign intruders to your body so that you don’t get sick.  This activity can help keep you from getting the sniffles, a cold or a more debilitating condition such as the flu or even hepatitis.

With the immune system up and running strong, these invaders are stopped before they can get a foothold on your cells and begin to destroy them and make you sick.  There are cells that run reconnaissance missions looking for the intruders.  There are immune system cells that take the information from the others and create antibodies to kill them off.   There are immune system cells that simply “eat” the invaders on site, inGet Healthy a search and destroy mission. These are only a few of the activities that the immune system does.

 

We also have to be aware of some things that can impact the system’s ability to do its job.

Age

            Stress

            Fatigue

            Nutrition levels

            Healthy activity levels

Obviously, we cannot do anything about our age, but the others are lifestyle related and we can take actions in those areas that will help to build up our immune systems and fight off illness more effectively.  De-stressing your life and getting plenty of sleep are very important.  Taking time for an effective amount of exercise without going to the extremes is key to keeping your defense mechanisms mobile.  Getting enough of the right nutrition is a challenge, but can be done with supplementation when eating right is not happening.  The good news is that all these changes or adaptations to our lifestyles have many side benefits.  Targeting your immune system will help you to enjoy better health in other areas of your life.  Just pay attention to your body and notice the improvements.

Shaklee Corporation produces a couple of products that work directly with your immune system.   Click Get Healthyhere to learn about Nutriferon and Defend & Resist. Shaklee also offers a money back guarantee.  Try it here.

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas, Dallas Health Helpers, talks about benefits of Ginger.

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas, Dallas Health Helpers, talks about benefits of Ginger.

 Ginger is a root/underground stem that has many health benefits.  Today it is used in America primarily as baking condiment, but there are many properties to this plant that should be looked at and considered more closely.

Ginger has long been known as a digestive aid, but there is so much more.

Ginger is related to onions and celery and they all have interesting and potentially valuable bioactive compounds that may impart some health benefits.  It contains some natural plant chemicals that work against inflammation.  Many chronic diseases are driven by inflammation, including heart disease, Alzheimer’s, obesity, type 2 diabetes, some cancers and even skin wrinkling.  These “phytochemicals” are also valuable in boosting immune system functioning-especially in combating viral infections.

Other possible desirable affects being studied include heart disease benefits, lowered cholesterol, and blood clot prevention.  Studies are also in the works on ginger’s beneficial effects on female cancers such as ovarian cancer.

Incorporating ginger into your diet:

►       Chop or grate it into sauces, dressings or right on top of your salad, poultry or seafood.

►       Snack on candied ginger or make it your dessert.

►       Pickled ginger can be used as a condiment.

►       Drink freshly brewed tea steeped with a thumbnail piece of chopped ginger daily.

►       Dried powdered ginger is more potent than fresh and can easily be used in cooking or sprinkled directly on foods.

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas, Dallas Health Helpers, talks about how the people of Missouri love Shaklee!

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas, Dallas Health Helpers, talks about how the people of Missouri love Shaklee!

 

I kid about that but after all, Missouri is the “Show Me State.”  Intelligent, discerning people need proof of things, especially things that concern their health. Why would one NOT question what he or she is spending money on to better their health for today and in the future?

 

Shaklee Corporation has plenty of proof that its products work.  It has plenty of proof that its products are safe.  It also has proof that it is a green company.

  • Shaklee has over 110 studies that have been published in peer-reviewed journals.  This in and of itself is proof that Shaklee is serious about its products. Once a study is submitted to a peer-reviewed journal, it is forwarded to experts in the field (peers) who will go over the study with a “fine-toothed comb” to expose any flaws in procedure, errors in results and out and out lies.  If the study passes those tests, the journal then publishes the study. This is not an easy gauntlet to get through, but Shaklee has done it over 110 times. Also, over 125 bronze, silver and gold medals from the Olympics attest to the fact that Shaklee products work.
  • Shaklee products are safe. They do over 100,000 tests each year on our products to ensure safety. This includes tests on raw materials to the manufacturing process to the finished product.  These include purity tests as well as ingredient percentage levels. The Olympic successes mentioned above also attest for the purity and safety of the products.
  • Being the first ever Climate Neutral Certified company, Shaklee has always been and always will be a green company.  They are very dedicated to preserving the Earth and our natural resources.

So if someone asks me about the proof of the benefits and safety of Shaklee products, I am ready for those people from the Show Me State.  And anyone else for that matter!

Dallas Health Helpers, Shaklee Distributor in Dallas asks are your vitamin supplements safe?

Dallas Health Helpers, Shaklee Distributor in Dallas asks are your vitamin supplements safe?

In November, 2011, the FDA filed a permanent injunction against the manufacturer of vitamin supplements in Pennsylvania.

It seems the company had been in violation of the cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practice.)  The company had been sited with two warning letters in 2004, one for labeling and/or promoting a dietary supplement that contained androstenedione as an ingredient, and the second for dietary supplements that are labeled to contain materials that are sources of ephedrine alkaloids.

In 2006, US marshals seized the company’s Lipodrene dietary supplements said to contain ephedrine alkaloids.  The company also failed to report serious, adverse events associated with their products. One individual who consumed their products reported high blood pressure spikes, hospitalization and a mild heart attack.  Just because a product is well advertised and marketed does not mean it is safe.

Users of Shaklee products, the company I proudly represent, can rest assured that each and every one of our products goes through a thorough testing regimen before it goes to market availability.  In fact, the average time span from idea to production for marketing is about 2 years for Shaklee products.

  • Shaklee makes sure the product is safe and that it works. Period.
  • Shaklee has never had a product removed from production because of safety issues.
  • Shaklee runs over 100,000 tests each year to maintain the safety and efficacy of our products.

Can you find another dietary supplement company who does that?  The next time you think to buy vitamin supplements, be certain you know that each and every ingredient in the product is safe and is delivered in safe amounts.
