New Study Reveals Probiotics Help Reduce Cold and Flu Symptoms in Children

Notes from The Wellness Lady

Welcome to our first issue of Wellness News and Updates for Busy Families.   As an Independent Shaklee Distributor for over 17 years, I have enjoyed seeing lives changed as people take responsibility for their health through positive lifestyle choices.  Before I was introduced to Shaklee, I was sick with sinus infections 9 out of 12 months a year.  I was continuously on antibiotics and other drug treatments.  Once I learned that I control my health through the food I eat, the supplements I take, and the way I control my stress….my whole life changed.  Very rarely do I get sick and sinus infections no longer have the power over me they once had.

If you are ready to do better, then read on…..


Make Time for You: Don’t Put “Me” Last

You hear it too often. I don’t have time to take care of myself because I am
(you fill in the blank). Everybody and everything else seems to come first
instead of you taking some time to exercise, eat a nutritious breakfast or
spend a few moments in quiet reflection. The next thing you know the old body
is acting-up in response to neglect and you ask “why me?”

Giving from a Position of Strength

If you are going to give of your time to others, make sure you are coming from
a position of strength. Just like you wouldn’t lend someone $50 if you have to
go hungry; consider yourself first before giving to others. Yes, I can hear you
thinking, that would make me selfish and a bad person. But in reality, people
will know when you are not taking good care of yourself. They will watch what
you eat, notice when you look tired and in need of a rest and see if you give
off good, positive energy. The last thing you want is to give of your time to a
good cause and have everybody thinking they should really be helping you

Try 3 Ways to Help Take Better Care of Yourself
1. Create a “You” Calendar

Place a calendar on the wall or the refrigerator for everyone to see. Mark in
those times for your workouts, quiet time and other healthful pursuits. Make it
known that these times are for you and not times to be besieged with a “honey
do” list. There are enough other available hours in the day that you can be
ready to do your collective part.

2. Make Time to Relax

Having activities that you find relaxing are a great way to take care of
yourself. Here are a few suggestions:
Massage is one of the best, natural ways to relieve pain, enhance circulation,
lower blood pressure, improve flexibility, reduce stress levels and relax.
Massage will help to restore your sanity and neutralize a hectic and fast paced
lifestyle. It’s good to know there is still a simple, practical and extremely
effective way to improve your health in this world of high tech solutions.
A Quiet Walk where you can take in the wonders of nature or feel the warm,
soothing rays of the sun is another terrific way to reduce stress and improve
“me” time. Take off the pedometer and forget about how many calories you are
burning and just feel the pure joy of moving your body. It doesn’t have to be
fast or on any particular time schedule. Focus on being aware of your
surroundings as much as possible as you walk and take-in lots of deep breaths.
3. Get a Good Workout

Like it or not, exercise is still your best “me” time going. From the health
benefits to the boost in self esteem, participating in a regular fitness
program has a lot to offer your health and quality of life. Keep it fun and
consider a partner to help make your workouts more productive.

New Study Reveals Probiotics Help Reduce Cold and Flu Symptoms in Children

I just read about a new study that says Probiotics may help reduce flu and cold symptoms in children.

Shakleekids Incredivites is the first children’s chewable multivitamin in the U.S. with lactoferrin, which helps kids’ immune systems stay supercharged.* Packed with 23 essential nutrients, it’s the world’s best kids’ supplement-with 600 IU of vitamin D to support strong bones and teeth, and 100% of the Daily Value of all eight B vitamins and vitamin C. Just two a day and off they play. Now that’s incredible!

In no time at all you’ll feel more energetic, develop a healthier heart, & look and feel better because you use Shaklee products.
