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.
Dietary Recommendations: It is critical to increase fresh vegetables and fruits .. and reduce sweets and snacky, carbohydrate, high-glycemic chips, crackers, baked goods, breads and pastas. Create delicious main dish salads with a wide variety of ingredients …
Protein-rich foods (chicken, turkey, cheese, … nuts, sunflower seeds, pepitas (pumpkin seeds ) sesame seeds

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!

Please forward this to everyone you care about… CNN and the other major news outlets will be releasing this story in the coming days and weeks. This new study is going to change the way we all think of vitamins and supplements – and the companies that manufacture and market them.
Peer Review of a recent clinical study conducted by the University of California Berkeley has been completed. This study has been dubbed the “Landmark Study” and will be the groundbreaking baseline for future clinical studies.
Shaklee Corporation based in Pleasonton, CA came out on top of it’s game as the ONLY company that has proof their vitamins and supplements work and have an impact on disease states.
The table below summarizes some of the key Landmark Study findings. Read on to access the PDF link at the end of this article for the full report.
The numbers are fascinating. You’ll see that taking no multi-vitamin may be safer than taking other company brands. Shaklee Corporation came out of the study with bragging rights that it’s users had markedly lower incidence of coronary heart disease, angina, congestive heart failure, diabetes, stroke and emphysema not to mention lower homocysteine, LDL,(bad cholesterol), Triglycerides and higher HDL (good cholesterol).
Landmark Study Key Findings
50th Anniversary Landmark Study – Do vitamins and supplements really work? Read for yourself:
The groundbreaking study of long-term dietary supplement users showed that people who took Shaklee supplements had markedly better health than both multivitamin and non-supplement users alike. The attached PDF is long, but could make a huge difference in your health! Remember these are powerful food sources, never take them on an empty stomach!
Nutrition Journal 2007, 6:30doi:10.1186/1475-2891-6-30
Usage patterns, health, and nutritional status of long-term multiple dietary supplement users: a cross-sectional study:
Abstract (provisional) Published October 24, 2007
Dietary supplement use in the United States is prevalent and represents an important source of nutrition. However, little is known about individuals who routinely consume multiple dietary supplements. This study describes the dietary supplement usage patterns, health, and nutritional status of long-term multiple dietary supplement users, and where possible makes comparisons to non-users and multivitamin/mineral supplement users.
Using a cross-sectional study design, information was obtained by online questionnaires and physical examination (fasting blood, blood pressure, body weight) from a convenience sample of long-term users of multiple dietary supplements manufactured by Shaklee Corporation (Multiple Supp users, n=278). Data for non-users (No Supp users, n=602) and multivitamin/mineral supplement users (Single Supp users, n=176) were obtained from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 2001-2002 and NHANES III 1988-1994. Logistic regression methods were used to estimate odds ratios with 95% confidence intervals.
Dietary supplements consumed on a daily basis by more than 50% of Multiple Supp users included a multivitamin/mineral, B-complex, vitamin C, carotenoids, vitamin E, calcium with vitamin D, omega-3 fatty acids, flavonoids, lecithin, alfalfa, coenzyme Q10 with resveratrol, glucosamine, and a herbal immune supplement. The majority of women also consumed gamma linolenic acid and a probiotic supplement, whereas men also consumed zinc, garlic, saw palmetto, and a soy protein supplement. Serum nutrient concentrations generally increased with increasing dietary supplement use. After adjustment for age, gender, income, education and body mass index, greater degree of supplement use was associated with more favorable concentrations of serum homocysteine, C-reactive protein, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and triglycerides, as well as lower risk of prevalent elevated blood pressure and diabetes.
This group of long-term multiple dietary supplement users consumed a broad array of vitamin/mineral, herbal, and condition-specific dietary supplements on a daily basis. They were more likely to have optimal concentrations of chronic disease-related biomarkers, and less likely to have suboptimal blood nutrient concentrations, elevated blood pressure, and diabetes compared to non-users and multivitamin/mineral users. These findings should be confirmed by studying the dietary supplement usage patterns, health, and nutritional status of other groups of heavy users of dietary supplements.

Shaklee Corporation has been a respected provider of health and wellness products for over half a century. The company founder, Dr. Forrest C. Shaklee invented the multi-vitamin in 1915. In 2000, Shaklee was recognized by President Bill Clinton as the first to achieve “Carbon Neutral” status.
NASA astronauts have used a Shaklee product for years called AstroAide to prevent loosing consciousness due to severe dehydration as they re-enter earth’s atmosphere. Fifty two Gold Medalist Olympians have achieved their dream using Shaklee sports and nutrition products even though the company does not pay for athlete endorsements.
The company has invested an impressive $250 million in scientific research and quality control to ensure their products truly impact key health biomarkers. The company also ensures their products contain the quanities and pure ingredients they identify on the label. The company’s standard for their vitamins and supplements is pure – a standard which is higher than organic.
