Change is coming so we hear in this election. The world is changing at an accelerated pace over the last 200 years. It’s amazing really – civilization has been on a colision course toward destroying the world since the first industrial revolution
For sure – things will change but will it be good change? I say it absolutely HAS to be the change that will save our earth from total destruction. I know I sound like an alarmist… it’s because I’m alarmed. How greedy are you? I mean really… If you were told your child has 20 years to live unless you change everything you’re doing right now – would you?
Are you concerned for your job? How about blue collar jobs, small businesses, the credit crisis, the stock market fall, hurricanes, tornados, wildfires, and drought? Global warming… is man made and we must think about the future of our children and grandchildren.
Make the right choice on November 4th – vote for the candidate that will truly bring change to America and bring us out of this economic disaster.

My parents were children during the Great Depression.
If I learned anything during my life, it has been don’t live on credit and keep your money in safe vehicles like municipal bonds.
During the Great Depression, the stock market lost 90% of stock values over several years. That’s why I’m in the stock market I guess! But I must tell you that the first good rebound I can catch, I’m bailing…
My mother told the story of her Dad working for $1 a day as a farm hand. He had found work miraculously with 10 hungry mouths to feed and no money, no food, and no jobs in the country. She recalled having to sweep the kitchen floor free of snow before they started the woodstove to boil water.
Every day that winter, the children were sent out to the snow covered, windswept cornfield a short distance from the house. She would tell how they would plunge their bare hands into the ice capped snow in search of corn cobs left behind during harvest. They collected stripped corn cobs into their shirt coats and then as the oldest child, my mother would lead them all back to the sanctuary of that woodstove warmed kitchen and hand the frozen cobs off to my grandmother. She would deposit the cobs into the boiling water and they would all wait as the mixture boiled down into a kind of corn cob mush.
Her parents kept them alive that winter with that mush, a little sugar and milk from a cow they were fortunate enough to have for milk.
That’s tough… People were kinder then in our agricultural society…
Today our country is being drained of billions of money for a war to secure foreign oil for big oil, hurricanes brought on by global warming continue to devastate our coastlines and contribute to the surge in unemployement and foreclosures further pressuring our strained American economy.
It’s time for pulling in and protecting your family and the best thing you can do right now is get out of debt and save in a FDIC insured bank. Are you working right now? Then do what you can while you can…
Find a second source of income and recession proof your life. We have to quit living beyond our means as Americans. Each of us must do our part to stop pouring carbon emissions into our atmosphere. It’s time to help humanity and pull together during the coming days, months, and years. And please do something new every chance you can to live green… for the future of our children.
I can help you build a second revenue stream with our green business. People are contacting me faster than I can get back to them since this crisis. It’s a perfect time to join our team and let’s build a better future together with your own carbon neutral health and wellness business. We can all do this together. There is hope for a better future and one thing I know to be true – change is coming.

KNOW YOUR A.B.C’s.
by Dr. Joyce M. Woods
Begin by thinking of your home as a toxic waste dump. The average home today contains 62 toxic chemicals – more than a chemistry lab at the turn of the century. More than 72,000 synthetic chemicals have been produced since WW II. Less than 2% of synthetic chemicals have been tested for toxicity, mutagenic and carcinogenic effects, or birth defects. The majority of chemicals have never been tested for long-term effects.
a. An EPA survey concluded that indoor air was 3 to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air.
b. Another EPA study stated that the toxic chemicals in household cleaners are 3 times more likely to cause cancer than outdoor air.
c. CMHC reports that houses today are so energy efficient that “out-gassing” of chemicals has no where to go, so it builds up inside the home.
d. We spend 90% of our time indoors, and 65% of that time at home. Moms, infants and the elderly spend 90% of their time in the home.
e. National Cancer Association released results of a 15-year study concluding that women who work in the home are at a 54% higher risk of developing cancer than women who work outside the home.
f. Cancer rates have almost doubled since 1960.
g. Cancer is the Number ONE cause of death for children.
h. There has been a 26% increase in breast cancer since 1982. Breast cancer is the Number ONE killer of women between the ages of 35 and 54. Primary suspects are laundry detergents, household cleaners and pesticides.
i. There has been a call from the U.S./Canadian Commission to ban bleach in North America. Bleach is being linked to the rising rates of breast cancer in women, reproductive problems in men and learning and behavioral problems in children.
j. Chemicals get into our body through inhalation, ingestion and absorption. We breathe 10 to 20 thousand liters of air per day.
k. There are more than 3 million poisonings every year. Household cleaners are the Number ONE cause of poisoning of children.
l. Since 1980, asthma has increased by 600%. The Canadian Lung Association and the Asthma Society of Canada identify common household cleaners and cosmetics as triggers.
m. ADD/ADHD are epidemic in schools today. Behavioral problems have long been linked to exposure to toxic chemicals and molds.
n. Chemical and environmental sensitivities are known to cause all types of headaches.
o. Labeling laws do not protect the consumer – they protect big business. The New York Poison Control Center reports that 85% of product warning labels were either inadequate or incorrect for identifying a poison, and for first aid instructions.
p. Formaldehyde, phenol, benzene, toluene, xylene are found in common household cleaners, cosmetics, beverages, fabrics and cigarette smoke. These chemicals are cancer causing and toxic to the immune system.
q. Chemicals are attracted to, and stored in fatty tissue. The brain is a prime target for these destructive organics because of its high fat content and very rich blood supply.
r. The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health has found more than 2500 chemicals in cosmetics that are toxic, cause tumors, reproductive complications, biological mutations and skin and eye irritations.
s. Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, circulatory disorders, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, and hormonal problems are diseases commonly related to chemical exposure.
t. Pesticides only have to include active ingredients on the labels, even though the inert (inactive) ingredients may account for 99%, many of which are toxic and poisons.
u. The New York Poison Control Center reports that 85% of product warning labels are either inadequate or incorrect for identifying a poison and for first aid instructions.
v. Formaldehyde, phenol, benzene, toluene and xylene are all found in common household cleaners, cosmetics, beverages, fabrics and cigarette smoke. These chemicals are known to be cancer causing and toxic to the immune and nervous systems.
w. Chemicals are attracted to, and stored in fatty tissue. The brain is a prime target for these destructive organics because of its high fat content and very rich blood supply.
x. The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health has found more than 2,500 chemicals in cosmetics that are toxic, cause tumors, reproductive complications, biological mutations and skin and eye irritations.

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
Varieties of lettuce …
Lightly steamed green beans or asparagus, sprouts, mushrooms, cucumbers, watercress, baby bok choy… for interesting added tastes try orange sections, dried cranberries or cherries, strawberries or apple or pear slices

Have you ever fallen head over heals in love? I mean really head first, lopsided, upside down, do anything for, crazy kind of love? Well I’m crazy for my green business with Shaklee.
I was interviewed by my business leaders this evening so that others could hear my story. You gotta love a company that allows the field to sponsor events like “WINGS” or Women Inspiring New Growth Strategies”.
The job that God has been preparing me for all my life – is my Green Business and my Passion. It’s Shaklee. I had severe asthma for 20 years – my pulmonologist declared me asthma free in October. Why is that? Shaklee…
The crazy thing is if you look back at the beginning entries of my blog – you can read what it was like for me THEN. Well, this is what it’s like for me NOW. I’m so thankful for the safe, pure products that Shaklee ensures will cause NO HARM to People, Pets OR the PLANET! I’m thankful that my health has returned to me.
The other blessing I am so very grateful for is the opportunity to touch others lives with health and financial income. I’m helping young women, my doctor, engineers, nurses, teachers and my insurance agent to name just a sampling of people I’ve reached. They are all benefiting by the Shaklee products and our opportunity for additional income.
I’m madly in love with Shaklee and so very happy to have found my green passion in life. I’ve been given an opportunity to help thousands of people with this new business and for that I thank God for everything I went through to reach this time and place in my life.

When We Plant Trees, We Plant the
SEEDS OF PEACE
AND THE SEEDS OF HOPE.
We aso secure the FUTURE
OF OUR CHILDREN.
Dr. Wangari Maathai,
2004 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
At Shaklee, we’re a part of a movement to make people and the planet healthier. Inspired by the visionary works of 2004 Nobel Peace Prize laureate Dr. Wangari Maathai and her Green Belt Movement, Shaklee began a tree-planting campaign across the United States and Canada in April 2006, encouraging the company’s 750,000 Members and Distributors to organize tree-planting events at the grass roots level in their respective communities.
With Dr. Maathai acting as the Global Ambassador for our A Million Trees. A Million Dreams™ campaign, Shaklee has set a goal to plant over one million trees throughout North America.
“Trees clean the earth. They clean the air. I am really happy that Shaklee is involved in this fantastic planting campaign. We will join them. We will be together.”
– Dr. Wangari Maathai
