A few years ago, I had a Shaklee table at a family consignment store event and although my main focus was on “Helping Kids Find Their Happy Face”, among the people who stopped to talk to me, there was a woman who had heard of Shaklee and knew they had cleaners. She had already shared with me that her child, about the age of 6, had many health issues, asthma and several allergies being amongst them. She asked about Shaklee’s cleaners because she had heard they were known for being the greenest products on the market and she had also heard about how chemicals in cleaners might have a direct effect on asthma/allergy symptoms in children.
One of my grandmothers (who I take after more than anyone else in the family), had bad knees and eventually ended up having knee surgery in her 70’s. Being so much like her in so many ways, and understanding the importance of “preventing” something before it becomes an issue, I decided to get back on (I took it years ago due to arthritis in my hip…click here for that post) at least one of Shaklee’s Joint Health Complex (which I take at bedtime) to keep the cartilage in all my joints lubricated and fed, in hopes to avoid any serious loss of cartilage, as I age. And remember, I had no pain in any of my joints, so I didn’t expect to feel anything different…..but funny thing was …. I actually did!
There are thousands of brands of supplements and most people assume if it’s on a shelf, it MUST work! Don’t feel bad if you’re one of those people, I WAS too, 22 years ago, but I’d like to share a story that demonstrates how easily it is to buy the wrong product for the desired results!
Herbal Blend Mentholated Multi-Purpose Cream is one of my favorite personal care products Shaklee has! It could literally replace a dozen different products you buy for various purposes! It’s been around for years and years and many people refer to it as “Face to Fanny” cream!!
Some of the best advice my mother ever gave me was to establish a bedtime for my kids within just a few weeks of them being born! I know that probably sounds crazy to some people, but it IS possible, it’s so healthy for your child (emotionally and physically) and……. it’s very beneficial to the happiness and emotional stability of you, as parents!
Many kids suffer from growing pains at different times of their development, especially during those growth spurts when they start eating you out of house and home!! Although growing pains are looked at by most people as “normal”….they sure aren’t necessary! When my family and I started taking Shaklee’s nutritional supplements 22 years ago, my kids were about 3 & 7. Years later when they were almost grown, I got into a conversation with a friend who happen to mention how terribly her kids suffered from growing pains or as some people know them, leg pains or muscle cramps, off and on during their childhood. I started asking around and discovered that this is a very common occurrence with kids, and it was then that I realized my kids hadn’t EVER experienced growing pains!
Many of us have stayed away from “Green” cleaning products because they’re expensive, and many of them are just not effective! If you’re one of those people, I know exactly how you feel, I felt that way too….but what I found in Shaklee’s green cleaners, completely changed our family’s life!! Not only do they WORK, but they SAVE US A LOT OF MONEY!!
Years ago I learned magnesium helps open the lungs/airways which in turn can help relieve the breathing problems for asthmatics. About that time, a co-worker of mine mentioned her son, age 10, suffered from asthma symptoms, always needing to use his inhaler upon waking every day and then also numerous times during the day. I shared with her what I had learned about magnesium and she decided to start giving her son Shaklee’s Calcium Magnesium product to see if it could offer any help at all.
Being environmentally conscious and loving the idea of saving money at the same time, is just one of the many things that attracted me to Shaklee and their amazing health and wellness products!! Since starting on their green cleaners, anti-aging skin care products, nutritional supplements and weight management products over 22 years ago, I have discovered unexpected side-BENEFITS to many of their products, and additional ways of using them other than the more traditional ways!
Having been with Shaklee for over 22 years, not only did I experience the task of teaching my own kids how to swallow a vitamin (once they’re past using our chewable multi-vitamin, Incredivites), but I’ve helped other people as well! It’s amazing how many adults have trouble swallowing a pill, as well! This information should help both kids and adults to swallow a pill! If you think about it, a piece of chewed up meat is much bigger going down, than a pill! 😉
