I have a girlfriend who doesn’t need vitamins. She meets all of the criteria needed to avoid the need for supplementation due to her chosen lifestyle and how she chooses to eat every day.
Like you, I have NO stress, I only breathe clean air, no one in my family has ever had any kind of breast cancer, lung cancer, brain cancer, arthritis, I never eat processed foods or junk foods, and I always get plenty of fresh fruits and veggies in my daily diet.
WHAT>??? YOU DON’T MEET ALL THE CRITERIA???
Okay, lets get real. No one, or very few people in the US, meet all of these criteria to be sure they are not stressing their bodies, their health, their cellular make-up.
So what do you do to make up for the deficiencies from household cleaners, the toxic body care products, the processed and junk food consumption, the STRESS???
The main reasons for needing supplementation are:
Yet, when someone suggests we actually invest in better health we tend to balk and think… Whhhhaaaaattt?
I’ve been investing in my personal health for over 8 years now. Purposefully spending money on health promoting foods, supplements and products. What do I have to show for it?
- Increased energy levels
- I’m 55+ pounds lighter
- I get carded to buy beer at age 43
- I no longer need 6 pharmaceuticals
- No more migraines
- I get rebate checks from my health insurance company ANNUALLY
- I don’t need many sick visits to my doctor
- Oh, and my hubby thinks I’m sexy.
Enough of what I think. How about some clinically based research? How about a study done by UC Berkley on long term supplement usage, specifically using the brand I choose? Here are some images from the study’s findings.
Personally, I use the Shaklee Lean & Healthy Kit daily. This allows me to begin with a sound, solid foundation as I provide the daily nutrition necessary to allow healthy cells to continue multiplying and my body to provide sick cells what they need to recover.
I am happy to work with you to guide you in what could be the best fit for your needs!
I’ll repeat something Jenni Oates and many others have said, which makes perfect sense…your cells are made up of Vitamins, Minerals, and Proteins…it needs those three things to be healthy and function properly, not short-term remedies/drugs that temporarily take care of the symptoms… disease has one cause, malfunctioning cells. ~Suni Ferrer
