screenshot-2016-10-27-14-51-28

I use to feel helpless when I use to start to get sick, and would have to to call in sick or miss out on events. I’m so grateful for how much healthier I am and If I do start to feel a tickle, I know I can fight it naturally and it actually works!

Here are some change of season issues and some remedies that are natural, safe and effective products that can greatly help. So why not start your Herbal Medicine Cabinet.

 

  1. Colds/Flu One of the most common ailments people experience this time of year

Are colds and flu viruses. They can range from annoying and mild

to knock- you- out, call in sick visit to the doctor, just plain awful. Three products that have been shown amazing results with helping to kick these kinds of viruses are:

 

2. Vitalized Immunity-drop on tablet into water for a yummy fizzy drink with the

Vitamin C of 16 oranges, zinc, honeysuckle and Echinacea; natural and sweetened with monk fruit.

 

3. Nutriferon-One of the most powerful formulas ever developed for strengthening the immune system. It’s unique synergistic blend of plant extracts

including pumpkin seeds, plantago seeds, safflower flowers and Japanese honeysuckle flower buds can be taken daily preventatively. Can take up to 6 per day if you feel a cold or flu coming on.

 

4. Garlic Complex-Natural decongestant and natural antibiotic. Shaklee’s Garlic

has a two-way odor control with a gentle, temperature-controlled drying process and a pleasant blend of spearmint and rosemary to maintain high potency.

This is used for congestion, asthma, sinusitis and allergies, cold, flu and pneumonia,

sore throat and bronchitis.

October 2016 | Breast Cancer Awareness Month
As many people know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and it is a cause that is very important to me. Many years ago my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer. During her chemo treatments, I became obsessed with finding ways to help her boost her immune system. Additionally I was looking for ways to prevent this disease, not only for myself but for her daughters as well.
 
The Best Way to enhance Breast Health!
 
 Or anyone’s immune system!
 
 Gut bacteria is the Key to a Health!
All diseases are caused by two things, either not enough nutrition or too many toxins. The key component in our bodies that can either contribute or sabotage our health is our gut. We absorb food there (small intestine) and eliminate what we don’t want from the large intestine. The good and bad bacteria of the intestines are responsible for absorption and elimination.
 The latest science is that the diversity of “good gut flora” affects the immune system, inflammation, the nervous system (depression), colon and heart health and more.
How to we add build the diversity of bacteria and boost our immune system and Breast health?  There are 3 ways.
  1.  Fuel up on fermented foods(probiotic). Foods like yogurt, kombucki, kimchi and sauerkraut contain bacteria or yeast help break down key nutrients like B vitamins(energy), Vtiamin C (antioxidant), Iron so your body can use them. Bacteria from fermented foods also crowds out harmful microbes. Here is a link to some ways to Maria King’s website, a co-founder of Ozuke, a probiotic pickling company based in Colorado. http://ozuke.com
    To be sure you are getting a probiotic everyday, Shaklee
    created a system that delivers the good bacteria (capsules)
    and ingredients(powder) that act like an agar plate that provides the food to multiply them. This contains more than one bacteria and the more the better.
 Korean Kim Chi :   Kim Chi Recipe
To be sure you are getting enough pre and post biotic:  Optiflora System
2.    Feed your Good Bacteria. These carbohydrates (Prebiotics) are  fibers that acts as food for the good bacteria. Like the powder in the Optiflora Prebiotic complex that I just mentioned. These carbohydrates don’t break down well and travel intact to the large intestine. Good bacteria work on them and change them into SCFAs
that nourish the gut, reduce inflammation and enhance the immune
system. Sounds complicated but just know that by adding these foods to your life you are adding prebiotics and enhancing your health.
Foods to regularly include:
  • Asparagus, fennel, garlic, lentils, onions, peas, pomegranate, nectarines and watermelon.
  • A really helpful resistant starch is found in bananas, beans, pasta and potatoes and rice. To optimize their use cook and eat room temperature. For bananas, eat before they are ripe.
The end result is: It helps absorb Calcium better, improve your body’s use of glucose and HELP YOU BURN FAT more effectively. They aid the intestines in releasing toxins that I mentioned earlier which can create the climate for cancer free life!
Not only is it a meal but it contains the pre and post biotics we need to absorb our nutrients and the correct fiber to release toxins. I recommend drinking one everyday so you know you are covering your bases. AND it delicious!
3.    Avoid Food that Harm Good Bacteria;
Limit Foods that sabotage building the microbiota (bacteria)
So foods that are high in sugar, refined carbohydrates, and unhealthy processed fats. These foods are deficient in fiber which prevent growth of beneficial gut flora. Processed fats and sugar act as food for unfavorable bacteria and encourages their growth.
Prevention helps you take control of your destiny. Adding these foods and supplements shift your body to a healthier state by reducing inflammation and boosting your immune system. You’ll notice fewer colds, flue and an increase in energy. You wil feel great! These are your cues that you are on the right track!

Travel and bucket lists seem a stretch from what I normally talk about, which is health.

But creating a bucket list can be linked to health in a number of ways. The day-to-day stress of working and deadlines can drain your mood, and worse yet, your immune system. A different place that offers new food, a new culture or a new challenge can be like a spark for your brain (like experiencing foreign cultures) and/or your body (like yoga retreat). Plus taking the time off to travel to a place that excites you can ignite your immune system!  Stress teaches us to always be on the alert, be pumped up, and be goal driven. In contrast, travel can help you enjoy for the sake of enjoying, be challenged, explore new adventures you never would have considered without thinking of the end result.

Here are 10 of the places I see myself being in the next 5 years. This not in any particular order. I encourage you to share your list too.

  1. Playa Del Carmen, Mexico: Shaklee is offering an opportunity to earn a five star adventure at a very exclusive resort. I love the beach and everything associated with it! Love to travel for free!
  2. Grand Canyon: I have traveled to many places in the US but not here. It is so majestic and I love to hike in nature.
  3. Shanghai, China: I teach QiGong (like Tai Chi) which is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine. I hunger to learn more and experience the culture it came from.
  4. London, England: I studied acting and did some community theatre. Would love to take a week and view a play a day!
  5. Barcelona, Spain: This city is on the water, with amazing food and culture. I love Spanish culture and the architecture of Spain.
  6. Sicily: my family is from around Rome and I would like to experience the southern part of Italy. The food, culture and architecture.
  7. India: I find yoga fascinating as it linked to the spiritual and it is challenging physically. Would love to spend a week at an ashram.
  8. Cape Town, Africa: What a gorgeous place with an amazing history. It would be the experience of a lifetime.
  9. Machu Picchu, Peru: I have dreamed to go here because being there would be like a spiritual journey. Shaklee is offering this trip as an incentive, all expense paid trip for doing what I love to do!
  10. Buenos Aires, Argentina: It has a European flare with drama. Love the tango and the architecture, fashion and food is amazing. 

Now it’s your turn. What is your travel bucket list? Go to your heart and imagination and share what your wish list is.

OFFER: Get a Free Ultra Moisturizing Spa Shea Butter Cream with purchase of The Vitalizing Plan! Ends July 28th

Picture2Here we are (my husband and I) at a black tie wedding several weeks ago! I was so happy I had my Shaklee program to put me back on track with all the temptations summer offers. Weddings, reunions are events where we want to look our best and I want to lose a few not gain!

Only three weeks from now until the Shaklee Live event in Orlando, where I see old Shaklee friends from 28 years ago.

Time flies but I don’t want to look like time has flown. I am challenging myself to lose one pant size by August 4.  Want to join me?  My plan, more exercise, healthier food & the Vitalizing Plan. It’s part of the essential program that keeps me on track.

Summer! I have heard so many people say it’s time to start an exercise program. I want to lose a few pounds. Weddings are happening! I have a passion for helping people start a program and sustain it. So many people get sidetracked by injuries, lack of energy, muscle soreness and not quick enough results.

As many of you know I have been teaching fitness for the last 25 years and a good supplement program can make all the difference in getting the results you want, and avoiding what you don’t want.

The American Dietary Report showed out of 21,000 surveyed not one person consumed 100% of the recommended daily values for 10 nutrients:

  • Protein
  • Calcium
  • Vitamin C
  •  Iron
  • Fiber
  • Vitamin A
  • B vitamins-B6, Thiamine, Riboflavin
  • Magnesium

To help you keep your promise to yourself I have put together 3 products to help you achieve your goals and a FREE GIFT to boot…

Order these 3 Sports Products:

Shaklee Physique: It is a delicious banana flavored whey protein supplement that accelerates recovery after exercise. So no muscle soreness! I love it with strawberries, 8 oz Vanilla Soy milk and 4 ice cubes. Refreshing!

Shaklee Performance : Is an electrolyte recovery sports drink that when tested with cyclists extended their endurance.  Many Olympians on the US team depend on this drink. It comes in lemon lime and orange flavor. It can be used everyday as a refreshing drink to pep up your step!

Shaklee Energy ChewsLove these! They are green tea chews that you keep in your purse or sports bag. They work so well for me in the late afternoon slump and they are good for me!

FREE GIFT – FREE SPF 30 tube of Enfuselle body lotion.  Light moisturizer that has a broad spectrum defense against UVA/UVB rays.

Stressed business woman at laptop in office

Free shipping on orders over $75, offer ends May 16th

Today I spoke to group of people about stress. We talked about how Biodots can help you become aware of how many times we are stressed throughout our day. After using the Biodots, they were surprised by how often their bodies were under stress, even though their heads said “I got this.” 

Each time you have stress, your heart rate and breathing speed up, muscles tighten, blood pressure goes up, and digestion shuts down so we don’t have the digestive enzymes we need. Our thinking becomes more focused and we operate on the fight or flight channel (sympathetic nervous system).

Our other channel is the rest and digest channel (parasympathetic nervous system). This allows the body to rebuild and repair. We need time, sleep and nutrients to do this. Both parts of the nervous system are important but most of us have our pedal to the metal. No rest, poor food choices and we begin to experience physical burnout making fatigue the number one reason people go to the doctors. In addition, two thirds of us are overweight, depression and hormonal issues begin to plague us. There is a huge connection to stress and women’s health issues, like breast and ovarian cancer, as well as heart disease.

 I hear many women say, “I have stress but I have it under control.” Whether you have it “under control” or not, stress is wreaking havoc on all systems and it will show up one way or the other.

We have a three-pronged approach to reduce the impact our modern lives are having on the quality of our lives

1. Eat Well:  Keep your blood sugar balanced. Start by eating a breakfast with 24 grams of protein, like a Shaklee Life Plan Shake and then throughout the day eat 5 small meals with protein and fiber together. Research shows that people who do this eat fewer calories during the day. Then reduce sugar in your diet. Did you know that the average person eats 22 teaspoons a day of sugar, equivalent to 250 calories, mostly found in processed foods? The American Heart Association recommends 6 teaspoons a day.  Start by eliminating processed foods that are high in sugar like cereal, salad dressings, and bread. If sugar is one of the first 3 ingredients, it is 50% sugar. Sugar worsens the damage stress does to the body and can affect how you feel and handle things daily.

2. Take Daily food Supplements (not chemical like the Centrum type):  We burn through nutrients under stress. Replenish these nutrients specifically.

  • B-Complex: The “stress vitamins” often recommended for depression, PMS, mood swings, irritability, nervousness, fatigue, mental confusion, sugar cravings, hypoglycemia, anxiety attacks, cracks on the corner of your mouth, low immunity and hair loss. B vitamins are depleted by sugar, alcohol, mental and physical stress, processed foods, and caffeine. Essential to normal weight, B vitamins convert food to energy and during weight loss, fats to energy.
  • Sustained Release Vita-C: Lost under stress, it is an antioxidant that offers protection from colds, viruses and infection AND many of us do not get enough vitamin C from our diet.
  • Optiflora – Because “bad” bacteria in our intestine can cause excess gas & bloating, weaken our immune system, and increase our risk of cancer AND Optiflora prevents those problems by providing a regular source of “good” bacteria, which crowd the “bad” bacteria out of our system. Stress reduces our good bacteria leaving us open to infection from viruses.
  • Essential Omega-3 Complex: Because studies have shown that populations that consume fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids have a very low risk of heart attack and stroke AND clinical studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids reduce at least three of the major risk factors associated with heart disease. It is also known to be used for depression. Did you know our brain is composed of good fat?
  • Unsure of what to take from above? Vitalizer is a comprehensive program which addresses all our lack of nutrients we lose while being stressed.   

 To personalize your profile, fill out our assessment form and we can recommend a program specifically for you. I can also help identify areas of concerns like digestion, sugar issues, and adrenal fatigue, which are a result of stress.

3.  Learn to Breathe to balance your nervous system
Have stress in your head? Teach the body to reduce the chatter of stressful thoughts by simple breathing practices. Alternate Nose Breathing balances the right and left brain, regular practice can teach the body not to overreact to each stressful event and damage the body.

For any woman I recommend a Fresh Start cleanse. The Fresh Start Cleanse is a food/supplement program that is  about cleansing and then rebuilding the body. 

Copy of cleanse flyer

What can a Fresh Start do for you? It can kick stress right out of the body. It is a comprehensive program about food, supplements, sleep, exercise and water. It can clear your head and make you feel fabulous, have more energy and lose a little or a lot of weight.

Watch the 23 minute video: http://www.freshstartprogram.info  password: fresh start

Then take the Fresh Start 5 week challenge: What can that do for you?

It can give you a burst of energy, give you bragging rights and take decision and willpower out of the equation when stress depletes your desire to live a healthy lifestyle (cravings etc).

Don’t delay! May 16th is the beginning of the next challenge, prizes for all who participate and stay involved. Email me to get started and make your life more balanced and stress-less!

 In the meantime, Live Life With Zest!

Join me in at the Saratoga Public Library this weekend!

Allergy Relief

While I was in my mid 30’s I was unable to wear eye make up. It was devastating. My eyes were very sensitive and no matter what the brand of eye make up, I had watery itchy eyes and a rash on my eyelids. This went on for over a year. My babysitter, who was getting a degree in marine biology pointed out that toxic chemicals in everyday cleaning products I was using was causing me problems. I was skeptical but desperate.

She explained that the chemicals were negatively affecting my immune system and I was having an allergic reaction. So I put all my cleaners in a box and bought the Get Clean Kit. Within a week my eyes improved, I especially loved the Basic H2. I could use it for windows, surface areas, glasses and was easy on my skin. It was so effective and so economic. One bottle equals 5,800 bottles of Windex type cleaners. The laundry products made my wash white,  and the Scour Off Paste works well for cleaning pots and pans. I enjoyed cleaning!

Weight Loss

Did you know that household toxins can interfere with weight loss/management and make you fat? Dr. Pamela Hamilton, MD, Phd, who specializes in metabolism found a connection between the chemicals in household products we use daily PLUS those used to grow our foods and a shocking increase in percentage of weight gain.

What these chemicals do is damage our body’s natural slimming mechanisms. How to we reduce the damage? There are 4 Principles. Click here to read more.

The  best program I have found is the Fresh Start Cleanse, a 5-week program whose purpose is to cleanse and support the process of eliminating chemicals that can damage the body.

Here is the info. This is an exciting program. People find it easy to fit into their life. I’s effective, they look radiant (I have heard that word more than once), and people sleep well!

The next 5-week challenge starts May 16, although you can begin any time.

Request to join the Zest Again, Fresh Start Cleanse private Facebook group and see the progress people have made so far! Email me for more info at dianamaltz@gmail.com.

The same chemicals that affect weight management can also affect the immune system in a more extreme way than allergies. Recently, a report came out of the connection between bleach and breast cancer.

Would you like to reduce your risk?

Order a Get Clean Kit and experience cleaning in a whole new healthy and economic way. Can you help me share this with 30 families by April 30th? Buy the kit plus spend another $51 and Get this FREE GIFT! Now through April 28th we’ll give you free Basic H2 Organic Super Cleansing Wipes  when you purchase $150 or more in Shaklee products.
