  1. Keeping Our Families Healthy All Winter Long Barbara Lagoni

  2. Average U.S. adult has 2 to 4 colds/year Average U.S. child has 6 to 10/year Up to 12/year for school age kids Average duration is 1 week (up to 3 weeks) Caused by 200 different viruses Incidence of Colds/Respiratory INfections

  3. Learn how to keep our immune systems healthy naturally The Natural Approach

  4. Two Causes of Cells to Malfunction… • Exposure to toxins • Lack of nutrients Together, they weaken the immune system. Never Be Sick Again Raymond Francis Only one disease…malfunctioning cells

  5. Stress • Emotional • Physical (including extreme exercise) • Exposure to toxins • Poor diet • Lack of rest • Aging • Sugar/Alcohol What Weakens the Immune System

  6. 1900 – 10 pounds (per capita/year) 1985 – 124 pounds/year 2000 – 160 pounds/year Sugar Consumption

  7. Immune Dysfunction • “The anti-nutrient” depletes vitamins and minerals essential for the immune system • B vitamins, antioxidants, iron, and zinc • Displaces natural nutritious foods • such as fruits and vegetables • such as water or milk (with soft drinks - high fructose corn syrup) • Slows white blood cells • Feeds Candida yeast (80% of immune system in gut) Dangers of Sugar

  8. Damaging Affects on the Brain • Creates blood sugar swings (resulting in fatigue, poor focus, poor attention span, irritability, and mood swings) • Depletes essential nutrients for the brain (B vitamins, zinc) More Dangers of Sugar

  9. Sugar Feeds Candida Yeast • Candida produces toxins • Symptoms of Candida • Brain – anxiety, depression, headache, irritability, mood swings, poor memory, poor mental focus, dizziness • Digestive – diarrhea, bloating, gas, irritable bowel, bad breath, heartburn, food allergies, constipation, belching, abdominal pain, mucous in stools, and cravings for sweets, bread and alcohol More Dangers of Sugar

  10. Weakened Immune System – frequent infections (especially ears, tonsils), sinus congestion, chronic cough, pain or tightness in chest, environmental sensitivities (mold), asthma-like symptoms Reproductive – endometriosis, uterine fibroids, cervical dysplasia, PMS premenstrual syndrome, infertility, loss of libido, prostatitis, impotence, pelvic pain, vaginal discharge and itching Other – acne, skin disorders, white coated tongue, athlete’s foot, canker sores, nail fungus, burning tongue, spots in front of eyes, rash or blisters in mouth, fatigue, joint pain, muscle weakness, blurred vision More Candida Symptoms

  11. Aggravates Inflammation • Sugar causes the body to be more acidic (along with meat and dairy) • Vegetables cause the body to be alkaline • Inflammatory conditions include heart disease, arthritis, all “itises”, cancer, eczema, asthma, etc • The more insulin produced ... … The more inflammation More Dangers of Sugar

  12. High insulin levels cause cancer cells to grow. At least 4 or 5 types of cancer have been linked to high insulin levels (Steve Chaney PhD and cancer researcher) • Dental decay • Diabetes • Excessive weight gain • Osteoporosis (body pulls calcium from bones to make blood more alkaline) More Dangers of Sugar

  13. Free Radical Damage • Increased from high insulin • Damage to Digestive Tract • Reduces production of digestive enzymes • Leads to allergies and immune issues More Dangers of Sugar

  14. Refined carbohydrates… including breads and baked goods, chips, crackers, and snacks … all cause high insulin levels and blood sugar surges. White Flour ... Sugar’s Cousin

  15. Obesity – not a will power issue. Cravings are … a metabolic imbalancethat causes blood sugar to plummet • Cinch Plan or Energizing Soy Protein • B Complex • Glucose Regulation Complex • Vita Lea How to Stop the Cravings

  16. What Strengthens the Immune System? • Avoiding sugar and baked goods • Diet rich in vegetables, fruits, legumes, whole grains, low fat protein • Water/Hydration • Exercise regularly • Reduce toxic exposure • Adequate rest … 8 hrs/day (10 hrs/day kids) • Nutritional supplements essential for the immune system

  17. Vitalizer

  18.

  19. Unique, Patented “Triple Encapsulation” Technology Protects “Live” Microflora “Live” microflora Water and oxygen barrier Stomach acid protection Only Shaklee has it! OPTIFLORA™ completely survives stomach acid. Microflora are then released in the intestine.

  20.

  22. Who Benefits from Vitamin C stress bruise easily bleeding gums nose bleeds varicose veins spider veins chronic infection allergies asthma frequent colds/flu prickly heat swollen glands anemia colon polyps weakened immune system slow healing wounds Source – Nutrition and You , Vita

  23. To determine dosage of Vitamin D supplement for optimal blood level (50 dl) • 1000 to 2000 iu recommended • As a result, Vitamin D was raised in all Vita Lea products at no additional charge. Infant Vita Lea 400 iu Vita Lea w/ and w/o iron 800 iu Incredivites 600 iu Vita Lea Gold 1000 iu Vitalizer 1000-1200 iu Shaklee Vitamin D Study …Journal of Lipidology, most prominent scientific journal in that field

  24. Essential for strong bones (with calcium and minerals) • Essential for strong immune system • Helps regulate cell growth and differentiation • May reduce risk of cancer studies show: • breast 50% • colorectal cancer 55% • prostate cancer 55% Benefits of Vitamin D

  25. May reduce cardiovascular risks • hypertension, obesity, and diabetes • Helps blood vessels relax & improves blood flow • Lower risks for stroke & congestive heart failure • Improved cognitive function • Vitamin D receptors in the brain • Improves health of myelin sheath and nerves • Helps maintain health of ovaries, uterus, lungs, esophagus, stomach, bladder, kidney, pancreas More Vitamin D Benefits

Nutriferon • 4 plant extracts • (pumpkin seeds, plantago seeds, safflower seeds, and • Japanese honeysuckle) thus completely safe and natural • Developed by the immunologist who helped discover interferon (key component of immune response) • Increases interferon production • 4 human clinical trials ( Hepatitis C ) • Increases effectiveness of macrophages • (white blood cells that act like “pac men” gobbling up viruses, bacteria, cancer cells, and other “invaders”)

  29. CORNELL NUTRIFERON STUDY • NUTRIFERON… …Activates genes causing • Natural Killer Cell: • Activation • Proliferation • Signaling

  30. Phase 1 – Dr Ann Moscona, top virologist in U.S., developed an entire new technique – Human Airway Epithelial Model to study viruses without having to test on animals. • Phase 2 – Using that model, the study showed NutriFeron increased Natural Killer Cells which target viruses and tumor cells.
