A general rule of thumb is that if you have consistent problems falling asleep (not necessarily due to your brain racing), or problems staying asleep, there’s a good chance you are deficient in calcium, which is a natural muscle relaxer. So in that case, I encourage you to try Shaklee’s calcium (suggested minimum dose for adults is 2 in am and 2 in pm), to see how it works for you. Then, depending on your age and lifestyle, you might need to incorporate 2 more calcium at bedtime (either regularly) or just occasionally.
What you say repeatedly, and how they view themselves, can turn into a self-fulfilling prophecy!
When was the last time you heard a parent describe their toddler/child (outloud) as being “shy” or “timid” or “wild and uncontrollable”, etc. All toddlers and young children can have bouts of being “shy” for instance, or act crazy on occasion, but watch what you start saying about them and be careful it doesn’t become a “habitual” description. Believe it or not, just as negative “self-talk” can cause us difficulties and barriers in our own lives, describing a child over and over in a particular way….can actually lead them to “becoming” that way….whether it’s a good or bad personality trait! Because what you believe you are…..YOU ARE!
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.
Its all over the news….the importance of getting enough good bacteria into your intestinal tract on a consistent basis. If you’re doing your best by investing in products like Activia, or other acidophilus products on the market…hats off to you, for understanding the importance and attempting to do something about your health! There’s at least some chance that you’re doing yourself even a little bit of good on these products found on your store shelves. These probiotics and prebiotics are available everywhere but whether or not the company has actually taken the time and money to prove their product delivers 100% of these live organisms into your intestinal tract is yet another story! Whereas Shaklee’s probiotic is so powerful….you’d have to eat 2000 cups of yogurt to equal the benefits of this one tiny probiotic pearl from Shaklee!!!
