This post was originally written & published on September 28th, 2013. A few updates have been made since then.
Starting February 2013, I had the opportunity to work with the Shaklee Corporation as a blogger for their weight loss program. If you follow this blog or my Facebook feed you have already seen my fantastic results! When the program was coming to an end, I started to research the other products that Shaklee had to offer since I loved what I had used thus far. I ended up purchasing a few of their supplements to help with the sickness that plagued our home & various cleaning supplies that helped save us loads of money on cleaners we had previously purchased at the store.
Well, I am beyond excited to share that our home is now clean and free of harsh chemicals that are not safe to have around our kiddos! Since then we have all only come down with a slight cold that lasted about a day & Livia and I came down with an awful head cold but thankfully it only lasted about 3 days – when everyone else in this area has had it for 10+ days!! Anyone that knows us understands that this is a HUGE blessing!
There are other things that have since changed for me as well. After I had Cohen, our first son, I developed a lactose intolerance. I thought it was maybe the pregnancy that had done it & just went about my business. I could still have dairy but I had to be careful on the amounts I’d have. If I ever drank an entire glass of milk – watch out – I looked as if I were 4 months pregnant, had HORRIBLE stomach pains….and other things that I won’t mention in this post. This continued on but I was able to have dairy while pregnant….or maybe I just didn’t notice the bloating bc I had a big tummy to cover it up. 🙂 Well, after I had my girls & started on the Shaklee 180™ Turn Around Kit I avoided using milk and opted for Almond or Coconut milk. After being on the program for 3 months I decided to just give milk a try & see what would happen. I’m not really sure why I did it, I just did.
I made my shake & drank the whole thing.
No bloating. No bathroom runs. No pain.
So I figured it was just a coincidence & tried it the next day. Same thing. No pains! During this time I had also been taking their probiotic. After doing some research I firmly believe the antibiotics that I was on while in labor really messed up my gut. How very thankful I am to Shaklee.
Oh and those pesky allergies of mine – I haven’t had any issues in over a year now.
I actually have more stories than just these on how Shaklee has helped our family. I’ll save those for a later time since this post seemed to get a bit on the lengthy side. 🙂
I am so excited to now be part of the Shaklee team & share their products with those that are closest to me.
