I bother with my diet because I believe in treating my body fairly. You believe in the prevention of disease, I’m sure. Well, through the use of natural nutrition, you are certainly treating your body fairly.

One thing is certain… treating disease is only necessary AFTER one has lost their health.
Even then, the nutrition way to health will help… regain it.

Yes, I believe in both modalities. I believe in walking for health, but I don’t condemn the use of an auto-mobile or plane in covering long distances.

Remember, a treatment, in itself, is not a cure. It is only an assist to Nature. “ONLY NATURE CURES”.”

~ A Study Course in Nutrition by Forrest Shaklee Sr., DC, DD

Got immunity? Want more?

Throughout life, there are so many things that have a profound effect on your immune system. One of the biggest impacts come directly from the daily habits you adopt as part of your lifestyle. So often we get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, relegating building a strong immune system to the backburner. We prioritize everything else… that is until weak immunity gives us a wake-up call in the form of a health crisis.

That’s why it’s so important to become aware of the daily habits that can weaken your immune system and put you on a downward spiral toward poor health. The great news is, you have control over the habits and lifestyle you adopt and with a few simple tweaks, you can start building a super-strong immune system in no time! Read on…

Nutrients that power immunity…

♦♦ Vitamin C (from Sustained Release Vita-C)… a powerful antioxidant and also has a key role in maintaining tooth, gum, bone, muscle, and blood vessel health.

♦♦ Vitamin D (Vita-D3) plays a vital role in your immunity, heart health, calcium absorption, and bone strength.

♦♦ Zinc (Zinc Complex) helps the immune system fight off invading bacteria and viruses.
Triple Defense Boost contains all three of these nutrients and much more!

Ten simple habits that will improve your immune system

Here are 10 simple tweaks you can make that will boost your immune system and build the foundation for good health.

1) Reduce sugar. The less sugar you consume, the stronger your immune system gets. Why? Sugar has a negative effect on the white blood cells that fight off bacteria and infection, weakening your immune system. Sugar is found in everything these days so… read labels, cut back on sugary drinks and add more fresh fruits and veggies to your diet. You’ll feel so much better!

2) Have more fun. While it may seem odd, making time to have a little fun each day, let loose, laugh and enjoy life can have a huge impact on your stress level, boosting your immunity.

3) Hydrate! Make sure you drink enough water each and every day. Water plays an important role in providing your cells with enough oxygen. It also assists in removing toxins from your body that can build up and damage your immune system, leading to a plethora of health issues.

4) Wash your hands. When you think about all the places you go and all the things you touch every day, it makes sense to adopt this habit. Scrub your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds to eliminate germs and residue. Hand sanitizer is also a great option when you cannot wash.

5) Get outside. Spend as much time as you can in nature… soaking up the sun and breathing in fresh air. Walking can help you clear your head, improve your mood and decrease your stress level… boosting your immune system. The healing power of nature can be found nowhere else.

6) Put your phone down before bed. According to the National Institute of Health, scrolling through your phone right before bed can disrupt your sleep cycle by suppressing melatonin, a natural hormone in your body that prepares you for sleep…. a vital part of a healthy, strong immune system. Instead, create a nighttime routine that doesn’t include electronics. Take a warm, relaxing bubble bath, read a good book or write in your journal to prepare for a night of uninterrupted, restful sleep.

7) Connect with others. Your immune system can be affected by how much connection and socialization you get. Being around others can boost your self-confidence, reduce stress and even strengthen your immune system.

8) Eat your veggies. Vegetables contain a ton of vitamins and minerals that assist your immune system in fighting off germs and illness.

9) Create a self-care routine. In the chaos of everyday life, we often forget to make time for our own needs. When you set aside time to decompress, you’re not only giving yourself the chance to recharge, you’re ultimately helping your immune system to build a wall against illness and infection.

10) Take Shaklee supplements. Actually, the FIRST step you should take to improve your immunity is start on a comprehensive supplementation program to fill in any nutritional gaps that are affecting your health. Begin with Vitalizer, Life Shake, Nutriferon, and Triple Defense Boost. Add Vita-E Complex, B-Complex, Vita-D3 and Zinc Complex if you know your immunity is already compromised.

A strong immune system is the foundation of good health. So take a look at your daily habits and see where you can make some simple tweaks… small changes that will promote a stronger immune system and a healthier YOU.

The best foods for immune health…

⇒⇒ Strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and elderberries… the most powerful antioxidants
⇒⇒ Flax seeds, walnuts and salmon… for essential fatty acids
⇒⇒ Yogurt… contains probiotics for a healthy gut
⇒⇒ Garlic… the allicin in garlic is a natural antibiotic
⇒⇒ Oysters, lobsters, clams and crabs… for the selenium that produces cytokines, proteins which fight flu viruses
⇒⇒ Black and green tea… for the L-theanine which strengthens immunity
⇒⇒ Lean beef… for zinc, a common nutrient deficiency, is important for a strong immune system
⇒⇒ Mushrooms… especially reishi, shiitake and maitake… give your white blood cells a boost.
⇒⇒ Kimchee, pickles, sauerkraut and olives… fermented foods that deliver “good” bacteria to the gut, powering natural defenses against pathogens and creating helpful antibodies.
⇒⇒ Coconut oil… lauric acid converts to monolaurin, the same immune-strengthening compound found in breast milk.

Start adding these immunity-boosting foods to your diet and increase your physical activity to create a powerful one-two punch that knock out sickness, disease and infection.

Aching joints and muscles? Here’s Shaklee’s solution…

No pain, no gain… right? It’s a common expression… but if you were to ask the 50 million people suffering from pain, they would quickly tell you that there is much more to be gained with no pain!

♦♦ Soothes aching joints and muscles with a potent menthol formula.
♦♦ Fast absorption.
♦♦ Provides prolonged release action optimizing effectiveness against joint and muscle pain.
♦♦ Improves blood circulation.

Just rub into the affected area and enjoy quick relief… naturally!

And add Pain Relief Complex for a powerful 1-2 punch!

One nutrient that alleviates pain…

Scientific studies have linked a deficiency in vitamin D to an increase in body pain, lower back pain, fibromyalgia and even multiple sclerosis. Evidence suggests that vitamin D is a much more important nutrient than previously thought and in fact behaves more like a hormone than a vitamin in your body.

Since we get vitamin D from sun exposure, most Americans are deficient due to regular use of sunblock. Supplementing with Shaklee Vita-D3 will ensure that you’re getting enough of this critical nutrient.

Shaklee Vita-D

Note: Vita-D3 packaging has been updated and is now even more powerful than the original formula.
