Depression – Natural Approaches
1. Candida Yeast Infections
Yeasts, which naturally occur on skin and our intestinal tract, often grow out of control due to antibiotics, steroid-based or hormonal medications or diets high in sugar and refined carbohydrates. These yeast organisms produce toxins which can migrate out of the gut (leaky gut syndrome) and cause adverse reactions in the digestive system (gas, bloating, belching, mucous in stools, rectal itching, constipation and/or diarrhea), can cause emotional symptoms, (depression, lack of focus, poor memory, PMS, anxiety or frequent crying, dizziness or lack of coordination) and weaken the immune system.
Shaklee Optiflora System – (Acidophilus and Bifidus) – to re-inoculate the lower intestine with friendly microorganisms to restore a healthy environment and reduce yeast growth. Requires no refrigeration and its triple encapsulation protects it from stomach acids that destroy most acidophilus products including yogurt
Shaklee Premium Garlic Complex – helps kill intestinal parasites and yeasts, has natural anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
2. Fluctuating Blood Sugar Levels
The brain requires a steady supply of blood sugar in order to function properly. However, many foods in the American diet cause blood sugar to fluctuate wildly, especially foods high in sugar, white flour, caffeine or alcohol and other refined carbohydrates and snacks.
Foods that stabilize blood sugar are high in protein (meat, poultry, eggs, cheese, nuts, beans and soy) and fiber (fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains). The best nutrients to help regulate blood sugar are:
Shaklee B Complex
Shaklee Energizing Soy Protein or Mealshake or Cinch Shakes & bars or Soy Mix
Shaklee Fiber Plan Daily Mix or Fiber Plan Crunch or Fiber Tabs
Glucose Regulation Complex – unique blend of herbs, minerals and anti-oxidants that help promote efficient glucose utilization, & helps sustain energy and prevent blood sugar crashes that can cause carbohydrate cravings.
3. Deficiencies in Nutrients Essential for Brain, Nervous System & to Balance Hormones
OsteoMatrix, VitalMag and Chewable Cal Mag Plus– (Calcium Magnesium)
Omega Guard Omega-3 Complex– (Omega 3 Fatty Acid) – essential for the brain, this remarkable combination of EPA and DHA produce prostaglandins which can reduce triglycerides, cholesterol, blood pressure, etc.
GLA Complex– (gamma linolenic acid)
most of the above is available in Shaklee Vitalizer ..a 30-day supply of 80 essential nutrients
4. Herbal Recommendations
Shaklee Moodlift Complex- (St John’s Wort) –contains standardized extract of hypericin, a natural plant compound found to be a very effective anti-depressant in clinical studies. Researchers reported improvement in depression, anxiety, insomnia, and self-esteem with no adverse side effects. In addition, Moodlift contains inositol to improve nerve transmission, found in scientific studies to be low in people who experience melancholy.
Mental Acuity Complex (Ginkgo Biloba) -Ginkgo is renown for improving blood circulation to the brain and thus improving memory and mental quickness. Along with Bilberry, Hawthorn and Rosemary extracts, it is also often used to improve depression, vertigo, eye health and blood clots in the legs.
Shaklee CorEnergy – contains
Ginseng, adaptogenic herb used traditionally to revitalize and replenish vital energy, one of most prized of all herbs.
Green tea extract – the richest source of antioxidant nutrients called polyphenols, known for cancer prevention.
Cordyceps – a highly valued Chinese mushroom found thru extensive clinical trials to fight every day fatigue.
Together these herbs strengthen and replenish the adrenal glands, often exhausted from stress, and increase mental vigor and concentration, improves sexual function, kidney health, liver and cardiovascular health.

Will you make a decision to turn a deeper shade of green on April 22nd?
I’ve been scrambling to help my green business owners get ready for Earth Day 2008. In a Shaklee home business, April is a month of celebration as people focus on becoming a deeper shade of green. Coincidentally, Shaklee has also kicked off a campaign to support women entrepreneurs build wealth with Shaklee. April is winding up to be a GREAT month and the best yet for our business in 2008!
I own a consulting practice that has been on coast since I found the greenest company I know and hung up my Shaklee shingle. I talked with a former business associate today. She has some project management work in Mexico City they need help with. “Would you fly every week?” she asked. And then I thought about all that carbon footprint from jet fuel. “No, I would come back perhaps every three weeks.”
The IT and Financial corporate clients that I have spent my career assisting have lost the appeal that once drew me to the business. I found myself thinking “But what about my new Gold Ambassador needing my help to get her business off the ground?” She’s a stay at home Mom of four young children and preparing for the financial storm of change coming to her and her children.
Our Chiropractor has introduced Shaklee supplementation and non-toxic products into his practice. We’re planning an Open House to the public on April 22nd. We will educate about the dangers of 83,000 untested chemicals on store shelves and the health consequences when we choose to bring them into our homes. I thought, “I won’t be able to help with the event and ensure it’s success. ”
Then that small inner voice said to me, “But I’ve never been to Mexico City… Hey… Shaklee is in Mexico and people can earn income and switch to safe Shaklee products there.” My mind continued with the “Pros” and “Cons” checklist of “Should I go or should I stay.”
Meanwhile, my husband voiced his concerns that I could be kidnapped by one of the taxi-cab drivers that are famous for taking tourists to ATM’s and emptying their bank account. He is always concerned for me when I travel and of course we spent 12 long years living separately. It’s been the best part of our life together since we started our Shaklee business. I thought, “Do I really want to worry him that way?”
And then I thought about my grandsons. One of the biggest reasons that I am so concerned about our planet’s future. I would miss out on their most precious growth – right now they are 10 months and 3 years. Ethan runs to have Mamaw hug him and Edison grins with that one bottom tooth and giggles when he catches my attention. “How can I live without my family again? What would life be like without them?”.
My daughter needs me right now too. She is so relieved to have me watch the boys when she must be away. Daycare is something the kids have not experienced and we are so grateful that we can help with their care when she needs us. “What would she do if I’m not here to watch the boys and listen to her when she needs support and love from another mother – her mother?” I thought.
Can you guess what my decision is? Yip… I’m hook, line, and sinker commited to continuing on the path of my new career. You may be asking, “Are you crazy?” What about all that money you can make with a consulting business?” I will tell you what MY goals for a better life include…
1. Help people become financially independent and money wise with a Shaklee business. I know when I help others get everything they need in life, I’ll have everything I could ever want in mine.
2. Bring health to people through public education about the consumer dangers that lurk in the market today and help them switch to Shaklee pure and safe products . Shaklee has never had a product recall.
3. Remain “Carbon Neutral” through offset projects and working from home with Shaklee which has been “Carbon Neutral Certified” since 2002.
4. Educate parents about child safety. Through education and product choices, my goal is to interrupt the startling statistic of childhood asthma which has increased by 166% in recent years and women that work in the home are dying at a rate 54% higher than average from terminal cancer. The Toronto Clean Air Institute sites typical household cleaners and chemicals as the cause.
5. Replace my consulting practice income within 5 years with my Shaklee business. In 2006, Master Coordinators AVERAGE PUBLISHED 1099 earnings were $286,000. The Gold Ambassador program is averaging $30,000 in additional income to Masters. We are using methods that will move the needle forward to that and beyond for us personally and our team.
6. Stay in the race for the long haul. I am commited to building our business now so we can enjoy residual income in a few short years. The plate is set – Baby Boomers Want Shaklee Health and Nutrition, the Green Wave is Here, and Shaklee is expanding to 43 more countries in the next 7 years.
I am so blessed to have found such a wonderful and rewarding new life. It is true what Roger Barnett, our CEO says, I can “Do Well by Doing Good”.
Ninety percent of people want a home business. How about you? Do you want to join me and build a future that will fulfill your dreams for a better life? Would you like to align your financial future with your convictions? Are you anxious to hedge against the financial pressures of a faltering economy? Do you have a loved one that is chronically sick and in need of better health? Are you concerned about your children’s future and the possibility that global warming may affect them in a dramatic way?
You can be part of the solution this Earth Day 2008. No one person can do everything but everyone can do something. Join us as a business owner or member and be part of the Shaklee family. Happy Earth Day 2008!

|GOOD MORNING AMERICA WORKPLACE EXPERT RECOMMENDS SHAKLEE AS SMART, FLEXIBLE CAREER CHOICE
750,000 Strong and Growing: Shaklee Helps Entrepreneurs Earn Income at Home PLEASANTON, Calif. – July 13, 2007 – Good Morning America Workplace Contributor Tory Johnson introduced direct-selling to millions of viewers on Wednesday, July 12, with a segment explaining the ins-and-outs of the business. She highlighted Shaklee Corporation as a great partner for people considering direct-selling, with competitive start-up costs and a passionate sales force committed to environmentally friendly products and practices.“More than 14 million Americans have entrepreneurial careers through direct-selling,” says Laura Hughes, North American Sales. “At Shaklee, we believe that life should be full of “ands” – that it’s possible to have a great career and a fulfilling personal life. By working from home, Shaklee distributors have the flexibility – with the support of the company behind them – to create the type of business that is right for them, individually.”During the Good Morning America segment, Tory Johnson introduced some key considerations for those interested in a direct-selling career, including personality fit (are you outgoing, independent and motivated), product line (are you passionate about the products), business support (what does the company provide to help you succeed) and reasonable, affordable start-up costs.When green was just a color, Shaklee began making products that respected the earth and supported physical health. And since the company was founded, Shaklee has always believed sustainability began with people’s own lives. Shaklee products are sold by the people who use them, which means they enrich people’s lives and they earn income. The company’s peer-to-peer system has exponential rewards so that everybody gets a little more, including the benefits of the very best products produced in the most responsible ways.
Shaklee’s distributor starter kit is $39.95 and the company makes it very easy to launch each new business with a wide array of educational and marketing materials, training, support networks and personalized Web sites to generate online sales.
