Womens Health and More!

A Midwife’s Perspective

“After delivering 76 babies in the home – without anesthesia, fancy equipment, and a staff of doctors, nurses, aides and orderlies, I’m convinced that maternal nutrition is the single most important factor in the production of healthy offspring and a well mother. Shaklee mothers experience significantly less blood loss (2-3 teaspoons compared to 1 to 2 pints). Their placentas are smaller, firmer, and healthier. There is less vaginal tearing. Newborn babies are more alert, more contented and less prone to birth-related injury.  There was no colic noted in the Shaklee babies.”  I have seen this with one of my friends who was on Shaklee supplements throughout her entire pregnancy.  I was with her and her baby for two days straight and kept noting how her baby NEVER cried.  I had never seen such a calm, relaxed, content baby.

10th Day of Shaklee Christmas….

Here are a few products that have helped women…..


Help reduce PMS symptoms such as bloating, cramps, water retention, irritability, and moodiness

Protect Your Bones with OsteoMatrix. You need more than just calcium to build strong bones.  OsteoMatrix provides a unique matrix of critical nutrients including calcium, vitamins D & K, magnesium, and more to build and maintain strong bones. It’s clinically proven to increase calcium absorption, and its small, coated caplets are easy to swallow!*

Osteomatrix also helps to calm the baby after birth and helps him to sleep better.  (relaxes his little muscles too!) Will also really help with contractions and help your body bounce back once you deliver. 


GLA is used by many women to maintain a sense of well-being throughout their monthly cycle. This Shaklee formula contains GLA (gamma linolenic acid), an omega-6 fatty acid that our bodies use to form prostaglandins—potent, hormone-like substances that help the body to regulate many normal bodily processes.*


Alfalfa…one of my favorite products….Known as “The Father of all foods”


With deep roots extending 10 to 20 feet into the soil, this amazing plant is rich in trace minerals and protein plus contains 8 digestive enzymes. Recognized as a natural anti-histamine, allergy sufferers report good results from taking 3 or 4 of the little compressed sun-dried leaf tablets containing no pesticides, fungicides, growth regulators, or synthetic hormones.  If you have a stuffy nose, headache, allergies, pain and stiff joints, ulcers, or stomach ailments give alfalfa a try.  Great to give to your kiddos when they have a stuffy nose.  If your nursing, alfalfa is known to boost your milk supply another added bonus!

A friend of mine used to get migraines, and now just takes alfalfa when she feels one coming on- and has not had to take her migraine medicine (note-she also Shakleeized her house and switched to non toxic cleaners!)  I got a lot of headaches after having May.  Now if I feel a headache coming on, I take alfalfa and sure enough it goes away! Such a better alternative than the Tylenol/Ibprophen I was having to take!  Also has helped with my allergies, stuff nose, and stomach.
