Note from Anita

I apologize for this being a few days later than planned. 1) I want to do the best job I can for you. 2) I have to take care of myself first and my family, too. Therefore, I’m not going to stress about getting this newsletter out on a certain day. Lesson #1. We create a lot of our own stress. Stop it.

I’ve been thinking all month of what would be most helpful to you on your road to recovering from fibromyalgia. I remember how difficult (or should I say impossible) it was to make a decision. I have experienced how thick the brain fog can get.

So, I’ve decided to outline some different levels of Starting Nutritional Programs for those with fibromyalgia. My intention is to simplify your options and help you to make a decision. I’ve had a request wondering when I will get these done, so now seems like a good time. Again, you are getting this info first. (You are in the right place at the right time, whether you perceive it as good or bad, it is perfect for you. Lesson #2)

P.S. I debated about this topic for the newsletter, because I don’t want to give the message that I’m just trying to sell you something. That’s not why I’m here. I’m trying to help you. Yes, I’d appreciate you purchasing Shaklee products through me, but it comes down to your choice. If you do purchase through me, I’ll be here to help you find what works best for you. If you don't purchase from me, no hard feelings.

Membership with Shaklee is only $19.95. This money is usually recovered on your first order because you will receive 15% off of everything you purchase for a year. Membership is best done on my secure Shaklee website. If done by phone you will need to follow with paperwork. The pricing below includes membership prices and is subject to change at any time.

Beginning Nutritional Programs

The Essential Foundation in each starter program consists of Energizing Soy Protein and The Basics which are daily vitamin strip-paks (these include your multi vitamin and mineral plus extra Vitamin C, B-complex, and E-complex).

Your Basic Fibromyalgia Start is the program that I designed especially for fibromyalgia. This will give you some digestive cleansing and replenishment along with the basic nutrients plus trace minerals your muscles need to function. The price is $195.05 Retail, $165.55 w/membership. You save $29.50 with membership, recovering your membership fee on your first order.

Essential Foundation (basic nutrients plus protein)
Herb-Lax (cleanses the villi in your intestines)
Optiflora (replenishes good bacteria to intestines)
Super Cal Mag Plus (muscle relaxation and sleep)
Alfalfa (detoxifies and provides trace minerals for your muscles)

Your Ultimate Fibromyalgia Start adds to the program above. In addition to muscle pain, it targets low energy, stress relief, improving your immune system and reduction of your toxic load. The cost is $410.60 Retail or $347.85 for members. You save $62.75 with membership.

Essential Foundation (basic nutrients plus protein)
Herb-Lax (cleanses the villi in your intestines)
Super Cal Mag Plus (muscle relaxation and sleep)
Alfalfa (detoxifies and provides trace minerals)
Optiflora (replenishes good bacteria to intestines)
CoQHeart (needed for energy production in every cell)
Stress Relief Complex (calms without making you sleepy)
Memory Optimizer (improves memory and learning)
Nutriferon (boosts immune system)
Carotomax (helps detoxify fat parts of body)
Flavomax (helps detoxify water parts of body)
Basic H (non-toxic multi-purpose cleaner to reduce chemical exposure)
Best Water Pitcher/filter (filters drinking water to reduce toxic intake)

At the risk of giving you too many choices, here is a program that my supervisor, who’s been in nutrition for 35 years, gave me today. She said these are the most important products and this program will help anyone! I will call this your Fundamental Start. The cost is $159.35 for Retail and $135.45 for members.

Essential Foundation (Everyone needs these basic nutrients.)
Optiflora (Puts the good bacteria back into your intestines.)
Nutriferon (Breakthrough immune protection not found anywhere else in the world.)

If you want to design your own program, the targeted products below can be added to your Fibromyalgia Start or Fundamental Start:

1) Memory Optimizer helps brain fog.
2) CoQHeart helps with energy production in every cell in the body.
3) Stress Relief Complex is good if you have high anxiety or high stress.
4) Liver DTX Complex is important if you have hormonal problems.
5) Pain Relief Complex and Joint Health Complex for sore joints.
6) Lecithin is indicated for nerve pain.
7) Nutriferon boosts interferon, a critical part of your immune system.
8) CorEnergy improves energy through better oxygen utilization.
9) Omega 3 is the good fats for heart and hormone help.
10) GLA Complex is another good fat for PMS.

It is up to you to make the decision to get better. I can't do it for you, but I am here to help. Shaklee has a complete 30-day money-back guarantee. So, what have you got to lose? Pain, that’s what you have to lose! Email me and I’ll help you get going. I know some of these options sound like a lot of products, but if you have a lot of symptoms that have been bothering you for years, you will need a lot to rebuild healthy cells in your body.

3. Inspiration of the Month

Are you the type that never asks for help? Is it hard for you to say no? You have the choice to take care of yourself or not. If you choose to put everyone else first, your physical and mental health will suffer.

If you choose to take care of yourself first, this shift also allows help from the outside to come into your life, too. Make the shift and put your own needs first. Allow and accept the help that is then sent to you. It is a gift. Treasure help, don’t turn it away.

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

That's all for now,


P.S. Before you start any nutritional program, please record your symptoms on this handy Fibromyalgia Symptoms Checklist.
