Shaklee Distributor in Dallas, Dallas Health Helpers, talks about joint health and joint pain.


Without healthy joints, common activities such as bending, sitting, and walking would all be challenging. That’s because joints serve as links between bones that provide stability and control body movement. Without properly functioning joints, there is joint pain.

Cartilage is an essential component of joints that provides cushioning between bones and helps absorb shock from physical impact. As we age, this protective cushioning breaks down naturally. Additional factors such as continued physical stress and overexertion can further accelerate the breakdown of cartilage by triggering the release of chemicals that attack cartilage.

The result? Joint discomfort (joint pain)and limited mobility.  For every pound you gain you add four additional pounds of pressure on your knees and six additional pounds of pressure on your hips.

What can we do to protect our joints?

1. Maintain a healthy weight: Excess weight can place additional strain on your joints. The healthier your weight, the better your joints will feel, and the more mobile they’ll be.

2. Tone up: Strength-training and aerobic activities help reinforce muscles that support joints, so get up and get active.

3. Rest when necessary: Don’t overdo your workouts. If your joints are telling you something, listen to them.

4. Eat healthy: Include antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables, omega-3 fatty acids, and phytonutrients in your diet. Not only are they good for joints, they’re great for overall health.

5. Take your supplements: Supplement your diet with New Advanced Joint Health Complex, which contains natural ingredients, including Boswellia extract, glucosamine, vitamin C, and other joint-supporting nutrients.  You may also want to include Pain Relief Complex to assist in further pain relief.


Take care of your joints now-before it is too late.

Shaklee distributor in Dallas talks about getting started early on New Year’s Resolutions.

Shaklee distributor in Dallas talks about getting started early on New Year’s Resolutions.

Oftentimes people will wait until January 1st to even think about what they want to accomplish with their New Year’s Resolutions. It is a good idea to begin that process now. While November and December have our minds occupied with thoughts of gifts and parties and visitors, we don’t consider some important things like the impact on our health.

One of the most often made and broken New Year’s resolutions is to lose weight and reduce body fat. And it may be that what seems like a good idea doesn’t actually have a good plan of action behind it. Losing weight is not something that just happens. One must put some good thought behind it and and set up a plan of things that will make it happen.

We have a great plan of action to lose weight that helps people stay on track and move easily forward toward their goal. In this plan, we teach how to develop good health habits that create health for a lifetime.

Consider looking into the Cinch Inch Loss Program. Besides the nutritional support, we offer group support meetings on Saturdays and Wednesday evenings with great success. Call me at 214  770  9596 or email me  at TIM at DALLASHEALTHHELPERS dot COM to learn more. If you would like a CD on the science of weight loss, let me know. Be well, stay well. Happy Thanksgiving.

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas says the yo-yo is a no-no.

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas says the yo-yo is a no-no.

Many people treat their health like a toy.  The yo-yo comes to mind when it comes to weight loss and maintenance.  It also brings about the old routine of joining a gym and going for a month or so then dropping off completely.

Neither of these is a good plan for long term health. Yo-yo dieting is harmful to current and future health.  Besides the current stress it puts on the body, it may also cause long term damage to our organs and our metabolism-in general, the way the body functions day to day on an ongoing basis.

Any diet that promises quick weight loss in a short period of time, one that encourages a drastic change in eating habits and lifestyle is probably not a good choice. If a diet is not something that you could follow for the rest of your life, it may not be the one for you.

A good weight loss program is one that you can see yourself following with ease and consistency.  One that will allow you to live your life without disengaging from people and activities you enjoy.

One such plan I have used for myself and others with great success is the Cinch Plan from Shaklee.  Click here for details.

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas explores calorie restriction.

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas explores calorie restriction.

During the holiday season, you may ask someone to lunch.  The reply may well be that “I am not having lunch today.  I am saving my calories for the party tonight.”  This is not a good plan.  It affects the metabolism, mood and mental  functions.  If the body is in a famine mode, things slow down to preserve energy.  This includes our thinking and physical functioning.  And we all know of someone who gets really testy when they are hungry.

Think of alternatives to starving yourself in preparation for a big onslaught of calories.  Keeping your nutrition levels up during the day will have you in a better mood for the party or dinner and you will be more enjoyable to be around.  Start off with a good healthy breakfast.  After all, you hopefully did not do any sleep eating, so it has been a few hours since you ate last.  Make sure that breakfast includes some low fat protein.  Remember that you don’t need to load up for five hours of energy.  Plan for a snack mid morning.  Again, keep the calories coming in at a low, but steady pace through the day. 

A smart lunch is also in order. The tendency to skip lunch has the same effects as skipping breakfast.  We weren’t meant to eat only one meal per day. So keep the nutrition coming. Don’t forget the afternoon snack as well.  Snack does not mean something from the vending machine wrapped in cellophane.

Eating moderately throughout the day will keep you from being the ravenous guest at the party who can’t seem to move away from the food table.  Take some time to mingle with other guests.  You’ll never know what connections you may make.

My recommendations for breakfast or lunch substitutions are Shaklee Cinch Shakes or Shaklee Meal Bars. They are very convenient and pack a wallop of nutrition in less than 280 calories.

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas warns of holiday weight gain.

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas warns of holiday weight gain.

The holidays are coming quickly and so are the plans for all the parties and meals.  So much of our social time centers around food and much of it is comfort food that is most often laden with fat and empty calories.

How we begin to think about and plan for the upcoming holidays is very important.  Is our focus more on the food than the actual close connections we make with people?  Do we spend more time planning what we are going to wear than how our eating habits come across?

It is a good idea to think ahead before giving or going to one of these gatherings.  After all good impressions are important and can deepen relationships.  Here are a few tips you have probably heard about or read before, but now is the time for a review:

Don’t go hungry.  Eat something before you go. A  protein shake will keep you satisfied for a longer period of time and you won’t be tempted to eat things you normally will avoid.  And by all means, do NOT skip meals so you can eat a lot at this event. Smart snacking during the day will keep your spirits up and your vulnerability at bay.

Drink water.  Water helps to keep the body hydrated well when thirst can be mistaken for hunger.  Often at parties, one feels the need to have a drink in hand.  Holding a glass of water with a lemon or lime slice in it can occupy your hands just as well as a high carbohydrate drink.

Concentrate on others.  Getting involved in what is going on with someone else will keep your mind off your nervousness or perceived hunger.  They will appreciate the attention, too.

These small “corrections” to your planning will take you into and through the holidays with a few tools that will keep you on track for better health come January 2.
