Hi, Friends! Some of you have been hanging out with me here for a while and others of you are just joining me on this journey/adventure of life! I wanted to welcome and thank all of you for your encouragement and for sharing your lives with me, as well. I wanted to share part of our family’s story with you all today.
About two years ago in March of 2011, my oldest son developed a red, scaly rash on his face. We first thought it was an allergic reaction, but after removing the suspected irritant…the rash persisted, with a vengeance! I felt so bad for my son, it was a red, itchy, dry and peeling circle all around his mouth. Even if we would get it to clear up a small amount, it would not last long, at all. Our pediatrician sent us to a specialist after several creams, steroids and medicines were unsuccessful. I hated the idea of using all these things on his skin, as well! The specialist diagnosed him as having psoriasis and eczema…and prescribed more creams and such.
Now that I had a name for the issue, I poured over books and the internet. I questioned everyone I knew for more natural answers for my son’s skin issues. Surely, he would not have to be on medication for the rest of his life. I knew that steroids weaken the skin over time and starting him so young, I so badly wanted to avoid these things.
We started using Vitamin E both topically and internally, and that helped some. Oatmeal baths, olive oil rubs and probiotics were some other more natural attempts. The length of time between flare-ups seemed to be growing, but I felt lost and overwhelmed. I wanted the best and safest things for my son without stressing over it all. For over a year we battled with his skin issues with no long-term results.
And then…an AH-HA moment came…one day I was invited to listen to a live video conference call about a company called SHAKLEE. I had never heard of it and had no idea what would be talked about. And then, there it was…a company that prided themselves on providing safe, all-natural and green remedies for the very issues my son was having! Not only that, by using their products I could start a business of my own, just by sharing what I loved. And I had no idea at the time that I would so completely fall in love with the company, their ideals and, of course, their products. It soon became a clear choice that this was the perfect fit for my family.
I came across Shaklee while looking for help for my son, but my husband’s health had been a concern for several years before this. A broken back from a car accident had left him unable to work and provide for our family. So when I was presented with a solution for my family’s health and financial solution, I would have been a fool not to JUMP at the opportunity.
And that was six month’s ago! August of 2012, I began my journey with an AMAZING team of Shaklee women with stories similar to mine. This company and my team have inspired and helped me in ways I never even knew I needed. The training, support and encouragement has meant so much and done so much for my family. By exclusively using Shaklee products, my son’s skin has been completely clear for 5 months. We are all healthier that we have been in years. By replacing our toxic cleaners with all-natural, safe cleaning products and using the vitamins and supplements that are tested many times over for purity, I know I am doing all I can to protect my family. And hey, if I make a living doing that, I’m going to have to call that a WIN-WIN!!
If you want to know more about natural health solutions or starting a business of your own, I would love to talk to you about this opportunity to change your life and change your health! Just answer these questions and we’ll set up a time to talk about your needs!
