Do you find it hard to believe that anything can really help you?

Does it seem like you've tried everything and nothing helps?

Have you tried taking vitamins or supplements and didn't feel any difference?

You've been told over and over that there's no cure, right?

Do you just figure that you have to live with your pain?

Are you accepting that you will have to suffer for the rest of your life?

Have you given up hope?


I didn't believe anything could help before I tried Shaklee either. I thought the woman who introduced me to it was off her rocker.

She told me that I really needed this stuff. I thought, "She can't possibly understand what I am going through. There's no way this is going to help me. The doctors have told me there is nothing they can do." But, I decided to try it because:

1) I'm an easy sell (yes, I'm pretty gullible).

2) It was a relative of my fiancee who was offering the Shaklee products to help me.

3) I was just going to get my money back in 30 days, anyway.

Well, I never needed to get my money back, my pain was gone within a month, and I have been thankful for getting my life back ever since.

I'd be honored to help you live a similiar story of recovery. This is my calling, to help you. Funny, you have to call me, so I can do my calling.

(OK, you don't have to actually call me if you don't want to. You can email me or just follow some advice, too.)

Cleansing for Nutrient Absorption

I recently ran across an article about a doctor who is achieving success with fibromyalgia through intravenous micronutrient therapy (IVMT). This means injecting nutrients directly into the bloodstream.

This doctor is getting an 80% success rate while other traditional therapies like medication are failing. Why is this doctor getting a better outcome? Because fibromyalgia really is your body/muscles in need of nutrients, calling out for help.

Injecting nutrients directly into the bloodstream bypasses your digestive system. This solves two potential problems:

1) The digestive system can be clogged up with gross stuff, preventing nutrient absorption.

2) A food or supplement may not break down into a form readily absorbed and used by your body, again preventing nutrient absorption.

OK, so why is this doctor getting an 80% success rate and not 100%? Because they only inject high doses of 4 nutrients: Vitamin C, B-complex, Calcium, and Magnesium. These are all supplements that I recommend, but often you do need the whole range of nutrients that your body uses, not just 4 nutrients, to fully recover.

There are other ways to solve the two problems above. On my website, I talk (OK, I type) about how a vitamin supplement needs to dissolve into a form your body can use in order to do you any good. This is why I recommend Shaklee food supplements. Shaklee's high integrity includes a 4-fold guarantee, one of which is that the supplements will dissolve and be available for your body to use.

The second problem is solved by cleaning out your digestive system, so that the nutrients you take in will be absorbed. I am adapting this cleansing advice for all of my fibro friends. Here's the program that my supervisor in Shaklee recommends for anyone who is ill or overweight.

Energizing Soy Protein
Fiber Plan Daily Mix

Use the above products for one week before adding nutrients like vitamins and minerals. Just follow the label instructions for quantities.

This cleansing ensures that your digestive system will be ready to absorb the nutrients that you are about to give it.

What you have in your small intestines are little villi that are like fingers reaching out to absorb nutrients from all sides of each finger. These tiny villi can get packed down with mucous or filled with . . . well, let's just say yucky, stinky stuff, blocking nutrient absorption. You must clean out your villi, so the nutrients can get into your blood stream. Cleanse first, then nutrify (yeah, I just made up that word!).

I have a lot of work to do updating my website, adding the above to my current recommendations, but you are the first to get this important info.

If you'd like, I can find you the name of the doctor who is doing this IVMT, but you can save a lot of money with my program and get the same or better results.

You won't have to travel to see this special doctor, pay for doctor visits and lodging plus the cost of intravenous micronutrient therapy, which involves eight weekly treatments followed by an assessment to rate the need of further treatments. Wow. Sounds overwhelmingly time consuming and expensive, eh?

Here's what you can do instead: Purchase the cleansing program outlined above, follow it for one week, then start The Basics vita-strip paks along with Super Cal Mag Plus from Shaklee. After one month, we'll re-evaluate your symptoms to see if anything else needs targeting.

You don't have to purchase Shaklee products, but they are the only brand that I can guarantee results with.

You don't have to purchase Shaklee products from me, you are free to find a Shaklee distributor near you. But I would be pleased to have you as a customer and if you do purchase from me, I'll be able to help you along the way, so you get the results you are looking for.

Shaklee is currently offering to save the $19.95 membership fee with a 100 PV (point value) order through July. Plus you get 15% off everything you buy for a year not to mention the special promotions available only to members. Now's the time to get started feeling better. What is holding you back?

I know the Shaklee supplements that I recommend are not cheap, but they work. Do you want to spend $5 on something that doesn't work or $20 on something that does? Stop suffering, put your health first and make the decision to get better and get on with your life. With the money-back guarantee, what have you got to lose?

Financial difficulties? Email me and we'll work it out by prioritizing what you need or finding a way for you to earn your products.

3. Wisdom of the Month

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it. (Ha Ha)

4. Inspiration of the month

Know and trust that you are where you need to be right now and that all is perfect in your life.

The questions are. . .

What lessons are you supposed to learn from your challenges?

Where are you going to go from here? (Hint: You're probably not going anywhere until you address your health.)

Put yourself first! (I know it's easy to say and hard to do, but necessary.)

That's all for now,
