THANK YOU for bringing this information to us.XOXO

When the leaves fall, do your airways constrict and sinuses congest? Do your throbbing headaches prevent you from enjoying the fall colors? I remember when my eyes would tear up so badly that a film would cloud my vision and cover my contact lenses. It’d make everything from driving to reading difficult. So, I’d wear my glasses, wipe my eyes and hope for the best. That is, until infection set in.
What if you’re allergic to grasses? Don’t worry, for most people Shaklee’s alfalfa isn’t allergy causing because we only use the leaves, not the stems of the plant. Also, we only use mature alfalfa leaves so the root systems go deep into the soil. Why is this important? When you take our alfalfa, you get the trace minerals found deep within the earth which can raise your immunity.
Take acidophilus to thin intestinal mucas. Much of the immune system effectiveness is in the intestine.
Hydrate with purified water to thin the mucas and avoid infection.
Avoid mucas producing foods like dairy.
If congested, irrigate the sinuses immediately. This removes excessive thick mucas, kills infection and reduces inflamation.
organic onion juice drops in ear if infected (This smells bad but often relieves the pain within 15 minutes.)
If you used an antibiotic, the good flora of the intestine will be destroyed. Be sure to replenish the healthy flora (acidophilus) in intestine before the yeast (Candida) get overgrown. Your choice of acidophilus is important because if it can’t arrive in your intestines alive, pass the hydrochloric acid of the stomach, it won’t help the body. Shaklee’s patented ‘pearl coating’ ensures live flora get delivered to your intestine.
Candida overgrowth? Test here. (If you don’t include proper contact info, I won’t be able to send you your results.)
Soak infected body part in 1 gallon water with 1/2 teas Basic G for 20 min as often as possible (1-3 times daily)
In humans, lead toxicity sometimes causes the formation of a bluish line along the gums, which is known as the “Burton’s line”, although this is very uncommon in young children. Blood film examination may reveal “basophilic stippling” of red blood cells, as well as the changes normally associated with iron-deficiency anemia (microcytosis and hypochromia). However, basophillic stippling is also seen in unrelated conditions, such as megaloblastic anemia caused by vitamin B12 (colbalamin) and folate deficiencies.
Lead affects the peripheral and central nervous system. The most common sign of peripheral neuropathy due to chronic lead poisoning is painless wristdrop (weakness of the extensor muscles of hand) which usually develops after many weeks of exposure.
A May 2000 study by economic consultant Rick Nevin theorizes that lead exposure explains 65% to 90% of the variation in violent crime rates in the U.S.. A July 2007 paper by the same author claims to show a strong association between preschool blood lead and subsequent crime rate trends over several decades across nine different countries. These results were discussed in a July 2007 Washington Post article, reviving interest in the subject. Nevin’s results reflect peer reviewed findings by Dartmouth Political Scientist Roger D. Masters,and similar work is being done by other researchers. Amherst economist Jessica Reyes’ working paper and Masters’ work are both pre-publication and available online.
Use Herb Lax to purify the blood, which lessens the toxic load on the lymphatic system. If your intestine is very inflamed or you experience vast diarrhea, begin very slowly with the Herb Lax, giving your body time to repair. (Herb Lax instructions)
Use the Optiflora System to restore the good flora (like acidopholis) which has been harmed by antibiotics, birth control,
Use our soy protein (Instant Soy, Energizing Soy, or Cinch) to rebuild cellular tissue and restore metabolism.
Use our Fiber Plan or Cinch to get 25-50 grams of fiber a day.
