Product of the Month: Alfalfa, "THE GREAT HEALER"


Alfalfa, called by one eminent biologist, "THE GREAT HEALER", has been enthusiastically backed by many noted doctors, biologists, food and health authorities, who tell us that it contains more of the needed essential elements than almost any other plant or substance.

The lack of elements is now considered to be one of the principal contributing causes of most human ailments. Along with its other amazing qualities, it has been found that alfalfa contains Vitamin U.
Dr. Garnett Chaney, well-known food scientist of Stanford University, CA, has published his findings on Vitamin U, and asserts that it has great possibilities as as aid for peptic ulcers. In fact, according to the record, 80% of the ulcers so treated were healed.

Alfalfa is the richest land grown source of trace minerals. The roots of this perennial plant burrow deep into the soil and absorb the important trace minerals and elements such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron and phosphorous. Combined with chlorophyll and other organic salts, these factors seem to balance the so-called salt system of the body and act as a natural diuretic.

Alfalfa is most important for its Vitamin A and enzyme content. Vitamin A is important in building healthy skin, both outer and inner skin. The outer skin complexion improves, dryness is prevented and the skin becomes less susceptible to infection. The inner skin, or mucous membrane, is also greatly aided. The lining of the throat, nose, stomach and intestines are all improved with Vitamin A.

Enzymes are organic catalysts which promote chemical changes. Alfalfa contains the following seven enzymes:
Protase, which acts in the digestion of proteins
Coagulase, Emulsin and Peroxidase, which have direct action upon the blood
Amylase and Invertase which act in the conversion of starches and sugars
Lipase, a fat splitting enzyme.

Hence, Alfalfa greatly assists digestion both by promoting healthy mucous membrane tissue, and providing enzymes which convert foods into useable form. As many or our enzymes are destroyed by routine cooking and food processing, it is beneficial to take a few alfalfa tabs before each meal.

The use of alfalfa increases one's alkaline reserves and helps to offset the enervating effect of fatigue acids. It is beneficial to who have kidney or bladder trouble because it makes excretion of the kidney less acid and therefore less irritating to the urinary tract.

The U.S.Dept. of Agriculture states that while the average fruit or vegetable is from one to ten units alkaline, alfalfa is 130 units alkaline. This alkaline nature makes the use of anti-acid tablets for digestion unnecessary.

Chlorophyll is plentiful in alfalfa, and chlorophyll is known as a body cleanser, infection fighter and nature's deodorizer. This wonder of nature possesses the property of breaking down poisonous carbon dioxide, releasing oxygen in turn, thus inhibiting or reducing the action of anaerobic bacteria.

Try this experiment. If your dog has bad odor or bad smelly breath try crushing a couple of alfalfa tabs on his food. Alfalfa is rich in Vitamin K, which helps develop fibrin, which in turn protects against hemorrhaging by helping the blood to clot properly. It contains 20,000 to 40,000 units of Vitamin K for every 100 grams.

Alfalfa is being used as a means of bringing relief to arthritis sufferers and there are approximately 10,000,000 arthritics today.

The estimate is that 97% of all individuals over 40 have some form of arthritic disease. These individuals would do their aching joints a blessed favor by consuming some alfalfa in the tablet form.

Patients who have had 18 alfalfa tablets, six, three times a day and some extra B-COMPLEX are free from pain and hands are limber.

Personally I first started taking alfalfa for my allergies... what I didn't know at the time all of the side benefits it has... Alfalfa not only keeps my allergies at bay, it also took away my stiff shoulder. This is a product that is a staple at our house...even our trail mules get a daily dose of Shaklee's Alfalfa!

How Far would you have to Walk to burn off a Big Mac Meal?


Enjoying a Big Mac meal...

that would be the Big Mac, French Fries, and a Milk Shake...

every once in a while won't make you fat right?

Not if you walk off those extra calories...


Nutritionists in Great Britian helpfully computed just how you have to walk to shake off the 1,411 calories from that Big Mac lunch: 9.5 miles.


Not to pic on McDonalds, the Sun compiled a list of several favorite fast food items and how many miles you have to walk to get rid of the extra calories:

Meat Pizza: 930 calories requires a 6.2 mile walk
KFC meal: 910 calories requires a 6.06 mile walk
Apple: 45 calories requires a 0.3 mile walk
Stick of Celery: 2 calories requires a 0.013 mile walk
I saw on TV the other day a woman who was a professional contestant eater. This lady enters in all of those eating contests. Amazingly enough she wasn't heavy at all, but she is a professional at it and had a very strict daily training, exercising and eating regime she follows. I guess the moral of this story is as long as you walk/run/excercise it off don't worry about the calories...

Summertime Skin Protection

The days are getting longer, filled with more sun and summer fun. Drag out those flip flops..It's time to get the skin ready to be seen.

For those dry patches of skin- try Shaklee's wonderful herbal blend "green cream" as I call it. Tough Skin Deserves a Soft Solution, Dry, chapped, rough skin is no match for this soothing cream, which softens even the hardest, callused skin on knees, elbows, and feet. Its cooling, mentholated, non-greasy formula vanishes as you massage it in, leaving skin feeling smooth and refreshed. http://www.shaklee.net/amcasey/product/31751

Natural Protection for a Sunny Day- Ask any dermatologist what the number one skin care essential is, and they'll say a quality sunscreen with a high level of sun protection. Nothing is more important to the quality and health of your skin than sunscreen.


Enfuselle SPF 30 for the body is designed for all skin types, including the most sensitive skin, this patented, waterproof, oil-free sunscreen smoothes easily into your skin and absorbs quickly, without leaving a sticky residue. Soothing and moisturizing, it does not irritate the skin. Patented Vital-Repair+® contains antioxidant vitamins and botanicals. The formula offers UVA and UVB protection and adds an extra defense against premature skin aging. http://www.shaklee.net/amcasey/product/32519


Lip Treatment SPF 15 Soothing Lip Care Drenched with vitamins C and E, calendula extract, and moisturizing plant oil, this nourishing lip treatment softens vulnerable lips while SPF 15 provides UV protection. Smoothes vertical dryness lines and prevents peeling and chapping. http://www.shaklee.net/amcasey/product/32517


Pesticide Protection- Going barefoot may seem blissful, but remember 80% of what touches the skin enters your body. I'm probably the first to take off my shoes and go barefoot. At our farm I know it's safe... we use only natural safe products!


Here's my confession... when I travel it is a different story... many hotels spray bedroom carpets- and especially bathroom floors- with pesticide's to keep bugs at bay. May I make a suggestion... when you travel pack your slippers or flip flops while you're on the road to avoid exposure from potentially harmful elements!
