One of the reasons I am so proud to be associated with Shaklee is their standard. Always Safe, Always Works, Always Green. this applies to all of their products whether you are putting them in your body, on your body or in your home. Have you thought about the products in your home?

Check out this excerpt below from the Safe Shoppers Bible. You can make a change to positively improve your health - if you need help with a product equivalant to make a change - let me help.

To Your Health,

The Safe Shoppers Bible by Dr.Samuel Epstein,MD,and Dr. David Steinman, MD.

"Not a single cosmetic company warns consumers of the presence of carcinogens in its products - despite the fact that several common cosmetic ingredients or their contaminants are carcinogenic themselves or are carcinogenic precursors."

"Government and industry have failed abysmally to protect consumer health adequately; at the very least, they have failed to inform consumers fully of the hazardous ingredients used in household products, cosmetics and foods. One of the major reasons for our publishing the Safe Shoppers Bible is to empower you to transform your lifestyle into one that is healthier,
more natural & in greater harmony with the health of our environment."

According to The Safe Shoppers Bible. here is a partial list of common household products that contain known carcinogens and/or neurotoxins.
Carcinogens are chemicals that cause cancer.
Neurotoxins are chemicals that adversely affect the nervous system reducing emotional well being,mental alertness, coordination and other functions associated with intelligence.

Which wolf do you choose to feed today?

I spent some time cleaning through my computer document files and came across this story from Lou Tice. I took his Imagine 21 Course years ago and found so much to use both personally & professionally. I used some of his techniques raising my children. He puts out these Winner Circle Network thought provoking messages every day or so. Subscribe at

Winner's Circle Network with Lou Tice - 5/2/05 - "Two Wolves"

I am a firm believer that great wisdom abounds on this planet of ours, if we take the time to look and listen. The following story was sent to me by a long-time subscriber to the Winner's Circle, and today I would like to share it with you.

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on
inside people. He said, "My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us
all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed,
arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride,
superiority, and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope,
serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth,
compassion and faith."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather,
"Which wolf wins?" The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

How often we are faced with a choice about how to react to each day's
challenges. Do we rail at the outrageous winds of "fate" that pound us from
time to time, falling into the pit of self-pity; or do we look upon these
moments as opportunities to learn and grow, and broaden the humanity within

The good news is that we do have a choice. We can choose to feed the wolf of envy and resentment, or feed the wolf of humility, benevolence and
compassion. We can choose to be happy or to be miserable. The choice we make colors our days, our work and our relationships to those around us.

Which wolf do you choose to feed today?
