Earth… our home… our legacy!
For decades now, environmental issues have been a lightning rod for opinion and controversy with people polarized on each end of the spectrum… those who believe that the earth and its rich resources exist to service humankind in any way we wish to exploit it… and those who want to reverse all progress in order to restore our planet to its primal state.
Isn’t it amazing that so many years ago, Dr. Shaklee was a pioneer in environmental forethought. From the beginning, he understood that protecting the earth, while utilizing its vast resources for technological advancement, was a moral as well as practical imperative. He honored Nature as a treasured gift he that he’d been given, and never took it for granted!
So, no matter where you stand on the issues of global warming, planetary deforestation, species extinction, etc., ask yourself this: “As a resident of this beautiful, wondrous planet, what environmental legacy do I want to leave? How much do I love this Earth?”
Green living begins with you!
Think about the ways you can help heal and protect the environment:
⇒⇒ Don’t litter! Instead… clean up wherever you go.
⇒⇒ Recycle and reuse… everything you can.
⇒⇒ Grow your own… organic fruits and veggies.
⇒⇒ Use public transportation… or carpool whenever possible.
⇒⇒ Conserve and protect our water.
⇒⇒ Support companies like Shaklee, a leader in environmental conservation.
⇒⇒ Use Get Clean products.
⇒⇒ Teach your children to love the Earth!
Ah-h-h spring! Ah-h-h choo!
Yes… spring has sprung! And… so have your allergies! It’s true… the advent of spring is thrilling. The grass is green once again, trees are leafing out, birds are singing and flowers are blooming everywhere… a time to celebrate!
But for many people, spring also means sneezing, runny noses, red eyes,,, symptoms of allergies.
This year, try building your immunity against allergies with these supplements:
Long one of the favorite supplements to fight spring allergy symptoms, Alfalfa Complex contains a wealth of valuable minerals including calcium, phosphorous, iron, and magnesium, as well as bioflavonoids, trace minerals, protein, vitamins, and chlorophyll. This nutrient-rich supplement alleviates allergy symptoms for many who try it.
One of the most powerful formulas ever developed for strengthening the immune system, NutriFeron has a unique, synergistic blend of plant extracts including pumpkin seeds, plantago seeds, safflower flowers and Japanese honeysuckle flower buds. Take NutriFeron daily as a preventative measure and to build long-term immunity. If you start to feel those allergy symptoms kicking up, some people suggest up to 6 NutriFeron per day to thwart the sniffles.
Sustained Release Vita-C
An all-natural sustained release C with no shellac (often found in time release products), Sustained Release Vita-C’s powerful antioxidant properties protect the body against free radicals. A natural antihistamine, Sustained Release Vita-C increases capillary strength in nasal passages and helps the body ward off airborne allergens.
This antioxidant protects against cell damage and increases circulation, both necessary to ward off allergens. Vitamin E also protects lungs from air pollution and promotes healing.
Vita-E is in a natural d-alpha form and is more biologically active than synthetic vitamin E. It provides the full spectrum of tocopherols found in nature.
Defend & Resist Complex
Keep this important supplement in your medicine chest to take at the first sign of allergies. Defend & Resist Complex activates the immune system, promotes production of white blood cells, enhances resistance to infection, and reduces mucus. Defend & Resist works best when started at the onset of symptoms.
A natural decongestant and antibiotic, Garlic Complex has two-way odor control with a gentle, temperature-controlled drying process and a pleasant blend of spearmint and rosemary extracts to maintain high potency. Historically, garlic has been used for congestion, asthma, sinusitis and allergies, colds, flu and pneumonia, sore throat and bronchitis. With both anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, garlic is also effective against yeast infections (Candida).
How to prevent seasonal allergies
While there isn’t a cure for seasonal allergies, there are many ways to prevent them. One way is to increase your intake of essential fatty acids. Increasing your intake of fish and flaxseeds, along with Shaklee OmegaGuard can help prevent allergic reactions during the peak allergy seasons.
You may also want to increase your intake foods rich in vitamin C, like fresh fruits and vegetables to reduce the levels of histamine in your blood.
Another way to avoid allergic reactions is to simply stay inside. While this method isn’t practical for those with careers and busy schedules, it’s the easiest way to avoid pollen and other allergens. Check local weather alerts for pollen levels. If they are high, you might want to stay indoors during these periods to lessen your exposure.
If you absolutely must go outside, cover your nose and mouth with something thick to prevent yourself from inhaling any irritants. Make sure to change your clothes as soon as you get inside, since pollen can cling to the fabric and cause a reaction if you don’t change right away.
Particles can cling to strands as small as your hair, even if you have been outdoors for a few minutes. A quick shower is the best way to ensure that you’ve rid yourself completely of contaminants.

Affordable, preventive “health care” from Shaklee!
According to the Healthcare Blue Book, the cost for a 2-day hospital stay if you suffer a moderate cardiovascular “event” (heart attack) is between $6,000 and $10,000! It’s enormously expensive to be sick in the U.S. In fact, health care costs in this country are the highest in the entire world!
Even prescription medications are very costly. Sometimes just a 30-day supply of one drug can cost hundreds of dollars!
Compare the cost of treating illness with the cost of staying healthy. Even if you…
♦♦ join a health club for exercise
♦♦ buy only fresh, organic foods to prepare at home
♦♦ drink only Get Clean Water
♦♦ consistently take a wide range of Shaklee food supplements
♦♦ visit a holistic health practitioner
… you still won’t even come close to the cost of one hospital stay and the resulting plethora of prescription medications. And… you’ll be healthy instead of sick! What a deal!
It’s easy to start…
Just order Life Plan (Strip and Shake) or Vitalizer with Energizing Soy Protein to get started. Both Life Strip and Vitalizer contain a wide range of health-building nutrients.
But don’t wait to “stay healthy”… start today!
