Dr. Katzin on MS (5/1/2002)

Dr. Katzin

QUESTION: Which products and which dosages would you suggest that an MS patient could use to help alleviate the symptoms?

DR. KATZIN: Multiple Sclerosis, again, this is a condition which is not completely understood. What we do know is the nervous system spontaneously develops inflammation and these points of inflammation eventually become hardened or sclerotic. It happens multiple places in the body and hence it's called multiple sclerosis. Some people it's a very mild disease. You can have one bad attack, often in the eyes is how it begins, and you rarely get another one and you kind of notice some things throughout your life. Usually it burns out. Sometimes it's much more fast track.

What we find is that dietary fish oil and antioxidants have been shown to have a beneficial effect on the nervous system, particularly the nervous system and some of the damage that may occur in MS. So the program beginning with just basic cellular nutrition, 1 2 and Cell Activator ought to have a high component of dietary fish oil, up to 9 Herbalifeline a day, a component of antioxidants, 6 (**Rose Ox) and 2 RoseOX™ a day. And then I would add just to make sure that the digestive system functions well and can absorb all this, I would add a little Aloe to each meal. And I think you'll find that with that balance of proteins and micro nutrients and these particular dietary fish oils, as well as the antioxidants you see the effect that you want.

This is one of these interesting things where all dietary fish oils are not the same. In terms of the nervous system, the dietary fish oil that's important is DHA, just a complicated name for a very highly unsaturated fatty acid. Where the cardiovascular system is concerned is EPA. And you'll see fish oils in the store called max EPA or any of these things which seems to have huge amounts of this EPA, much more than we would put in any tablet of ours, almost bordering on medicinal, and these may be very beneficial for your heart but they will not effect the nervous system in the same way. This is where Herbalifeline becomes a very interesting product that it works on multiple parts of the body because it is a full component, a full spectrum dietary fish oil.

 

 

Multiple Sclerosis - Success (8/22/2002)

Magdalena Zoltner - VIENNA, Austria

leni_zoltner@hotmail.com

Hi, my name is Magdalena Zoltner and I live with my family in Vienna/Austria/Europe.

I was born in 1950; in 1984 I was diagnosed to have MS in a mixed form (one part becoming steadily worse and one part with inflammatory attacks),and that since my age of 15. This was the explanation of many first "unexplainable" illnesses I had all the time. It wasn't easy at all to manage my family (we have 3 children of our own + one adopted) - my husband did a very great and good job in helping me and caring for me - because sometimes it changed from as good as possible to very worse: dizziness, falling, numbness, hearing- and speaking problems, problems with my eyes (distance), walking, moving at all, depressions, very little strength. All the time I got gammaglobuline-infusions and enzymtabletts, only in the first years after the diagnosis I got Cortisone in case of inflammatory attacks.

From 1993 on it became constantly bad, I had to move with an electric wheelchair for outside for 3 years.

When it became worse and I stood on the verge to need a wheelchair also for inside - I prayed to God - I know that he is able to heal me within no time, but if it's not his will I'll bear this, but then I need much more strength, because all this mess is unbearable for my family and me any longer .

Sometimes later He let me find Herbalife.

First I got the Shake, but I did not believe that it can help me; sometimes later I got the Thermojetics Tea. At that time the Aloe-drink was not available in Austria, but I used this later. The first problem, which disappeared, was the depression. Then the motivation came back. Soon I sent back my electric wheelchair, because I don't need it any longer. I could walk again. I also lost weight, but the nice "side effect" became the main reason to take Herbalife. I started to walk, run, hear, see and speak properly again. I managed also the big wedding celebration of our eldest daughter; her bridal dress incl. veil and the big cake were "made by mama" ! We made a journey to Pakistan and I enjoyed to go by horse in the mountain regions there!

Since some years I have stopped all the medication for MS because I felt, I don't need it any longer.

Last year (2001) I wanted to have my MS controlled, with the result, that they couldn't find anything which points to MS any longer. They told me that they take away their diagnosis and that they want to see me NEVER AGAIN !!!

Praise the all mighty God, the father of my Lord and savior Jesus Christ, creator of heaven and earth and all people, who healed me and let me find Herbalife!

Multiple Sclerosis (5/1/2002)

Caroline Francis - Scotland

My name is Caroline Francis, I'm 42 years old and I've had MS for about 10years although I am one of the lucky ones and really my problems are limited to badly blurred vision in one eye, severe fatigue and the occasional dragging leg and wobbly arm. I had a couple of more serious attacks over the past few years, the first caused me to lose most of the use of my right arm for a few months -not ideal when you run a B&B in the Scottish Highlands and have to prepare both breakfasts and dinners for 12 people! It also left me with a frozen shoulder, probably through using my arm so awkwardly. I had physiotherapy for about 3months but she decided that she couldn't do any more for me and that I would need an operation to free the shoulder.

(That bad season was one of the reasons I was searching for something else to bring in some income - I answered an advert and joined Herbalife. I didn't work very hard at it and kept trying to keep the B&B going - mistake, my debts kept piling up and my health didn't really improve because I didn't take the products seriously. I still needed to sleep most afternoons.)

Having moved down south (well, to Durham!) in June 2000, in an attempt to hang onto my dream cottage by letting it out, I suffered a particularly nasty attack - mainly vertigo, which lasted for several weeks and put me in hospital for 4 days on a steroid drip - unable to stand up without crutches or sticks, let alone walk three dogs. Even after the worst of the dizziness went, I was still left with very weak legs. When I came out of hospital and finished the steroids, I decided to start doing anything I could to improve my health.

At the time I started taking F1 (1 x a day, I didn't really need to lose weight), F2 (2 x 3 day), F3 (1 x 3), Tang Kuei (1 x 2), (**Rose Ox) (1 x 2), (if I'm going to make a habit of falling over I don't want broken bones too!), Herbalifeline (2 x 3 per day). I've since added Thermo Complete, Cell Activator (as soon as it became available) NRG (when I feel I need an extra boost) and the Thermo tea as well. In the 18 months I've been taking the products I haven't had a single attack (having been used to one every 6 or 9months). I had also put on about a stone due to the steroids I had to take and last summer I managed to lose 12lbs in 3 weeks by upping the Formula 1 to 2 x a day.

Within a few weeks I was walking the dogs over an open fell for about 30minutes every morning (rough ground, up and down hills, slow at first but improving all the time) and now, since starting on the products I have so much more energy - I very rarely sleep during the day, walk the dogs at 6.30ish every morning and deliver my Herbalife leaflets for a couple of hours later on. Oh, and the frozen shoulder has 99% gone - no operation needed!

I'm not sure whether ALL the supplements are strictly necessary, but I know how much better I am, and I'm not about to risk another attack! I would certainly take F1, F2, Cell Activator, at least one of the antioxidants and Herbalifeline (maybe in even heftier doses?) and if fatigue is a problem G&B & Thermo with NRG as an additional energy boost. I still have the blurred vision and a lack of feeling in my right hand, but perhaps if I'd been on the products sooner, the damage would have been more limited. The only time I have to sleep during the day now is if I happen for some reason to have gone a day or two without the products - I can really feel the difference.

On 24th June last year, a few months after starting the products, I completed a 12 mile sponsored walk around Edinburgh – I did need to use my sticks (and lots of NRG!) and it did take me longer than most (but not all!) people, but considering that only 6 months earlier I couldn't walk at all I thought it was quite an achievement! I was very tired that evening, but fully recovered and out with my dogs again the following morning.

I will continue to take Herbalife products for the rest of my life and I would be very happy to talk to anyone who needs reassurance or more information. Just e-mail me on yourhealthmatter@aol.com.

No MS Activity for the last year (1/2/2005)

Angela Knutson - Franksville, WI, USA

angw2boys@netscape.net

Hi everyone, Angela Knutson here from Racine, WI.

I’m here to tell you Herbalife’s products have literally changed my life.

Here is little background about me. I am a registered nurse here in Racine, Wisconsin, USA. I am married to a wonderful man and have two young boys 9 years old and 10 years old that keep me moving. After my 2nd son turned 2 years old I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder called Multiple Sclerosis.

Immune, what does it mean? Well it’s an immune defense that actually fights off disease, sickness, and any other health threat that your body may encounter. Autoimmune is just that but for some reason my immune system thinks my body is the disease, so it attacks.

Many things can happen with multiple sclerosis and what was happening to me was low energy, numbness and tingling to my extremities, weakness, and overall feeling of helplessness. Most devastating was the MRI of my brain which shows MS progression or deterioration of activity. In August 2003, my MRI showed that my MS was in high gear and my neurologist switched my medication. We crossed our fingers.

Being the nurse that I am I researched the disease and talked with several neurologists to figure out how to slow things down and manage my disease progression. Again and again I was told there is no cure but managing your symptoms is the key to this disease. “How?” I asked. “Well, increase your immunity, reduce the stress in your life, and get lots of rest”, they responded. How feasible is that when you are raising a family??

I have always made health and nutrition a primary goal in my life but with the way the world is turning to processed foods and fast food restaurants on every corner I knew that I had to find nutritional supplements that would do what my doctors told me. I have tried numerous products over the years from varying nutritional stores such as GNC, but their products either did not provide my body with the nutrition that I was seeking or they tasted horrible.

Then Herbalife came into my life.

I started using the Herbalife products a year and a half ago now. Immediately I felt a surge of energy like never before, I wasn’t tired like I used to be, I didn’t feel worn down and really felt like I could conquer the world, or at least my family if I had too! Another appealing benefit that happened in my first 3 weeks of using the products I lost 12 lbs, 20lbs 2months and have kept it off even through the Christmas Holiday’s.

The real proof came from my neurologist. I knew how I felt, but I needed my doctor to tell me that I was doing better. On June 14, 2004 I had my doctor visit. 9 months after I started these outstanding products my neurologist hugged me and said this is the best neurological exam you have had in over a year, whatever you are doing keep it up. August of 2004, 1 year after I started supplementing my diet with Herbalife’s products I had a repeat of my MRI, NO ACTIVITY through out the year!!!!!!! Of course being the emotional women that I am, I cried, called everyone in my phone book and celebrated with my family.

Thank you Herbalife, not only do your products taste fabulous but they provided my body with the nutrition I was seeking, increased my immunity and have aided me in managing my disease.

Here is what I took during that year:

Formula 1 shake (all the flavors) 1 to 2 shakes a day

Formula 2 multivitamin 1tablet 3xday

Formula 3 Cell activator 2 tablets 3x day

Total Control 1 tablet 1 to 2x day

Herbalifeline 2-3 tablets 3xday

(**Herbal Complex) 1 to 2 tablets 3xday

**Adding to my program after my first year** RoseOx

Get on these products you will not be disappointed because everyone needs to have proper nutrition regardless.

To your HEALTH

Angela Knutson

Before Herbalife Nico was suffering from fatigue so badly that he could not lift a telephone from its cradle! He lay with his head on the table to have a conversation on the phone.

OUR STORY AS TOLD BY

Nico Smit

suffering from Multiple Sclerosis

In 1981 I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and over the years, have tried almost every possible vitamin and mineral supplement available - including Lioresal, Slow Mag, Slow K, kelp and many others. I have kept a record of 53 visits to doctors, specialists and dietitians during the period 1983 to 1989 - with no positive result. Periodically I was hospitalized and for a while the cortisone treatments seemed to slow down the progress of the disease, but the ensuing side effects worsened.

For seven years my condition slowly deteriorated despite an excellent diet program. I became so mentally and physically fatigued by midday that I could not lift a telephone from its cradle during the afternoon. I suffered terrible indigestion and constipation problems; severe leg spasms; my blood sugar levels became unstable and poor bad sleeping patterns developed. I began suffering from depression and developed suicidal tendencies.

 

During March 1998 my wife, Non, who through my illness, had been forced to take over as breadwinner, brought Herbalife into our home. I decided to give it "one final shot". I began eating the total program and within14 days I sensed a difference. It was unbelievable how my energy levels soared and, for the first time in many years, I began feeling positive. My health improved dramatically. Mentally I felt great and started planning my life and setting goals again.

 

Since I began using Herbalife products on a daily basis, I no longer suffer from constipation or fatigue. No more swollen feet. My cold legs and feet now warm up naturally again. My blood sugar levels are stable; circulation has normalized; the spasms in my legs have reduced dramatically and no longer wake me during the night. My sleeping pattern has normalized. I no longer crave certain foodstuffs and - as a bonus, I have lost 9 kg of excess body weight!

I believe that the excellent nutrition, which my body now receives, would have made a remarkable difference had I been able to commence the program earlier in my life. Thank you Lord for Herbalife!

Multiple Sclerosis (5/1/2002)

APRIL: My friend Sandy started in the business last summer and she was diagnosed with MS last February. Sandy's always been a very, very energetic on-the-go type of girl and the MS hit her, and it was debilitating MS. I mean it hit her quick, hard and total numbness of her lower extremities and going from the walker to the cane and now back to her feet. It was quick.

I got her on the products last summer. She started taking all of the products. She lost 17 pounds in the first 4 months. She didn't really need to lose a whole lot of weight. At the time when she started the products she was only able to work part-time at her job because she was so extremely tired all the time. And she just couldn't do more than 4 hours a day. About 3 or 4 months after taking the products she increased her hours by a few hours a week for the next few months until she was back at full time.

I mean it was the products for her that helped her. It's not that it cures or anything like that, but she drank that beverage every afternoon when the fatigue would really start to hit, and that would get her through the rest of the day. She's on the 1, 2 and 3, Thermojetics and drinks the tea and the beverage, depending on what she feels like for the day. And she swears by the fact that she feels so much better and she feels better this year than she did all of last year up until about September. In fact, she just got back from Hawaii. Her and her husband went on a vacation to Hawaii and she took the products with her. She just swears by it. She thinks it's made a huge difference in how she feels. Even the doctor had told her that because it was such a positive effect and that she did feel better, to keep taking it.

MS

This is from one of my good friends in Herbalife. A friend of hers found out she had MS, here's what she had to say.

I got my formal diagnosis of MS in December 2001, after a long time of playing the "rule out everything else" game. As it turned out for many years I was having symptoms without knowing what they were, such as migraines, total loss of hearing in my left ear, and other little annoying problems that made me think I was a hypochondriac.

Over the last couple of years the symptoms have gotten worse. Below is a list of the symptoms I have had and what they do to a person with MS:

•Fatigue, which is the most common symptom of MS. It is typically present in the mid afternoon and may consist of increased muscle weakness, mental fatigue, sleepiness, or drowsiness.

•Heat sensitivity (the appearance or worsening of symptoms when exposed to heat, like a hot shower) occurs in most people with MS.

•Muscle spasms are a common and often debilitating symptom of MS. Spasticity usually affects the muscles of the legs and arms, and may interfere with a person's ability to move those muscles freely.

•Dizziness. Many people with MS complain of feeling "off balance" or lightheaded. Occasionally they may experience the feeling that they or their surroundings are spinning; this is called vertigo. These symptoms are caused by damage in the complex nerve pathways that coordinate vision and other inputs into the brain that are needed to maintain balance.

•Cognitive. Problems with thinking occur in about half of people with MS. For most, this means slowed thinking, decreased concentration, or decreased memory. Approximately 10% of people with the disease have severe impairment that significantly impairs their ability to carry out tasks of daily living.

•Vision problems are relatively common in people with MS. In fact, one vision problem, optic neuritis, occurs in 55% of people with the condition. Most vision problems do not lead to blindness.

•Many people with MS experience abnormal sensations such as "pins and needles," numbness, itching, burning, stabbing or tearing pains. Fortunately, most of these symptoms, while aggravating, are not life-threatening or debilitating and can be managed or treated.

•Tremors. Fairly common in people with MS, tremors can be debilitating and difficult to treat.

•Difficulty walking. Gait disturbances are amongst the most common symptoms of MS. Mostly this problem is related to muscle weakness and/or spasticity, but having balance problems or numbness in your feet can also make walking difficult.

My doctor had put me on many medications. One for tingles; one for leg spasticity and another for bladder spasms; one for fatigue; one for depression; one for migraines; an my weekly shot of Avonex which is to slow the progression of the MS.

I gained 60 lbs and felt horrible. I couldn't go out shopping with my family because after 15 minutes of walking I was exhausted. I can't be out in the heat or I will have a relapse. My neurologist was telling me I had to slow down or I would have to go out on disability, I was going so slowly then I didn't know how I could slow down any further.

I decided I needed to find another source of income because I knew I couldn't support my family on the income I would get from disability. That was when I found Joe and Herbalife.

My first step was to try the products. I started with the Formula 1, 2 & 3 and the Total Control. I started losing weight and feeling better. Then I started using the Niteworks and wow what a difference. I have since gone off all of my medications, except my Avonex, and my energy is through the roof.

Everyone that knows me cannot believe the change they have seen in me. I haven't felt this good in years! And to top it all off I have now lost 25 lbs and am still losing.

 

Diabetes (5/1/2002)

Ruby

My Husband has type 2 Diabetes. Three years ago when he started on Herbalife, he was on 4 shots of insulin per day. He tested his blood four times per day and had a sliding scale for the Long/Short term insulin.

He started on the A Program (Green Quick Start) along with yellow. Since he also had just had by-pass surgery we also had him on Herbalifeline.

His Endocrinologist looked at the products and gave him the OK.

He started on the products the middle of January and by the middle of May he was off all his insulin.

Today he takes a tablet of glynese in the morning and his 3 months blood sugar tests are testing between 7.1 and 7.6 .The neuropathy in his feet begin to improve and within 7 months it had disappeared. His Doctor said that when you get the diabetes under control for a period of time that the neuropathy in the feet and lower leg can improve.

 

He no longer suffers from stinging and burning in the feet and has regained the feeling in feet and lower legs. His vision is about the same. He has now started on Ocular Defense and his vision has not deteriorated anymore in 3years. He lost 30 lbs and has kept the weight off.

As he says "I will do anything to keep from sticking my self with a needle 4 times a day!"

PETER BEAMENTS STORY

I have been a Diabetic since 1974, starting firstly on tablets, then having to go onto Insulin in 1998 as my medication was no longer controlling my Diabetes. I immediately started putting on weight as a result of the Insulin and was forced to increase my Insulin at a fairly fast rate as my Diabetes was so hard to control.

My wife started me on Herbalife Advanced Program with Herbalifeline and Xtra-Cal and Florafibre on March 30th 2002.

Between 30th March and 19th July I lost 5kgs and reduced my Insulin by 30 units a day, which is half my original dosage. Thanks to Herbalife I feel wonderful, my legs don’t ache anymore, I have incredible energy and now find I sleep better.

Update:- Dec 2002 :- I have now lost 9kgs and have reduced my insulin by 34 units per day.

Update :- May 2003 :- I have now lost 11kgs and reduced my Insulin by 38 units a day.

Update :- January 2004 :- I Have now lost 12kgs and reduced my Insulin by 50 units per day.

 

Asthma relief (12/29/2002)

Not only was I growing more allergic to everything as I aged, I'm 47 and had asthma from childhood - to the extent that I developed a "pigeon chest" - a chest bone that stands out a little from struggling to breathe through Asthma attacks as a child before inhalers.

As an adult I always had 2 Asthma pumps handy. One next to my bed and one in my car. I would turn around wherever I was if it wasn't in the car.

I moved from Jhb to Cape Town 3 years ago and it improved and I only used to inhale about 1 - 2 doses a day. Dosage is normally 2 sprays a time but I reduced it to one at a time so was using in the region of around 30 - 60 sprays a month.

All I can tell you is that I began using the maintenance program of one Shake a day, the Fibre and Herb tablets, Lipobond (just for a month), Thermojetics tea average of once a day and slowly over the second and third months began adding the NRG, VMH, RoseOx and Aloe juice.

I've been using Herbalife for about 7 months and from the third month or so I realised that my allergies had gone and I was using my Asthma pump around 3 to 8 times a month.

You'll understand why I had to consider the fact that only one thing had changed in my life. I was on the Herbalife programme.

I didn't expect this and I wasn't looking for it to happen. All I know is that it did. It can be called psychosomatic relief, I don't care. This argument is invalid for me because I didn't expect it to happen. If it was "in my mind", who cares - it just happened. and everything begins in the mind anyway.

Words could never express how I feel about not having to suffer the distress that goes with breathing and sneezing difficulties. You won't know what this means unless you're an allergy and/or Asthma sufferer.

Even if your prospective lucky customer doesn't have the results that I have had, it has to be beneficial.

Kind regards,

Childhood Diabetes (8/20/2002)

Tracie Gardner - Cape Town, South Africa

calvyn@mweb.co.za

My son, Owain, is 22 months old and was recently diagnosed with diabetes type 1. After drinking Herbalife shake in his bottle twice a day, his blood sugar is now much more stable and his insulin requirements have now halved. He's only been on the products for 2 weeks and we saw results within the first 2 days. Furthermore, he loves the shake, especially the strawberry, and drinks it in about 20 seconds flat !

 

Diabetes (5/1/2002)

Arlene Hill

My husband developed type II diabetes from long term steroid use due to a lung disease.

When he was first diagnosed his blood sugar was 311. The doctor started him on Avandia and I started him on a high protein/low carbohydrate diet.

In 28 days his blood sugar was totally under control and he no longer had to take the Avandia.

I also have him take 2-3 Yellow tablets a day (depending on the amount of carbohydrates he eats). Some diabetics will take 1-2Yellow 3 times a day. He still checks his blood sugar every day and is doing GREAT!

Being on the HPLC also dropped his cholesterol in that28 days from 251 to 198.

I hope this helps.

 

Asthma and Rhinitis (7/31/2002)

Lewis Blankfield - South Africa

lewis@gam.co.za

I suffered from Asthma from the age of 24 and once ended up in hospital after a bad attack. Over the years (I am now 54) I tried homeopathy, acupuncture, injections, tissue salts, Scientology and many other alternate therapies to try and control the Asthma without using allopathic medication but to no avail. I resigned myself to taking the cortisone Flixotide inhaler every day for the rest of my life to control the problem.

A month after starting the Herbalife Protein Powder and Fibre and herb tablets I felt that my chest seemed clearer and started weaning myself off the flixotide. After 6 weeks I was totally off the flixotide and my chest was clear, no wheezing except for the odd occasion .

Now 4 months later the flixotide is sitting in a cupboard and I don't even know that I ever had Asthma.

I also had rhinitis which is an allergy in the nose. I couldn't breathe unless I took my flixotide (cortisone) and Livostin (antihistamine) inhalers morning and evening - this kept my nose open but I still couldn't smell at all.

Now my nose is always open and I can smell again, the medication is sitting in the same cupboard as the asthma medication.

Diabetes, overweight, depression, anxiety (3/30/2003)

Jodie Overson - Denver, Colorado, USA

jloverson@aol.com

Before Herbalife...I was an overweight...stressed out... "Insulin Dependent Diabetic" ... mother of two, who also suffered from depression and panic/anxiety disorder.

Since Herbalife... I have cut my insulin dose in half. My sugars have all been in the normal range... I am off all prescription drugs for my depression and panic/anxiety ... the stress is gone! And best of all... I've lost 30 Lbs!

Here are the products I use in order of importance:

(Note- I am on insulin ... it is advised to slowly adjust insulin dose by 1-2 units every 3-4 days according to your sugar numbers. So with that in mind the gold program did not supply enough carbs needed to prevent insulin shock (low blood sugars). The green program keeps me in perfect balance until I can come down low enough on my insulin to switch over to the gold. Also if your customer has kidney or liver failure...High protein is not recommended. I am also nursing my almost 10 month old ... so I do not use the Total Control...yet. I will be in another couple of months or so... )

The Products:

Celular Nutrition

•Formula 1- 2x's a day ... breakfast and dinner.

•Also I do a half a shake for nighttime snack. I make the shake using Lactaid with soy protein fat free milk. Its 110 calories and has 14 grams of protein per serving! I also put the Performance Protein Powder in my shakes for even more protein. I have healthy kidneys and liver ... and this boosted my weight-loss!

•Formula 2 and 3- 3x's a day.

•Active fiber 3x's a day. Mixed with shakes or aloe drink.

•Herbal Aloe- all day long!!! My grandpa died from complications resulting from diabetes one of which was acid reflux ... very common with diabetes. This product is essential for prevention as well as treatment!

•Herbal Concentrate- in the morning after I nurse and once again late afternoon.

•(**Rose Ox) (very important for diabetics)- 1- 3x's a day.

•Herbalifeline-3-3x's a day.

•Joint Support-1-2x's a day.

• (**Herbal Complex) 1 -3x's a day.

•Protien Bars- as needed for cravings and snacks.

•Herbal Cleans- as directed. Aides in weight-loss plateaus.

•Lots of water ... at least 4 20 oz bottles a day ... dehydration will make sugar levels higher. Also water aids in weight-loss.

Closing thoughts...

I tried CarboGuard ... didn't find a significant change in blood sugars ... it did however help with cravings. For insulin dependent diabetics the cravings for sweets is sometimes uncontrollable...weight-loss is slow so a lot of encouragement is needed. Slowly introduce products so you know what will effect insulin dose. If sugar goes low ... most diabetics will panic grabbing something that will boost the sugar, usually candy ... or juice which are high in calories. This defeats the weight-loss. A low calorie glucose tables work well to get the sugar levels back up quickly. Work closely with your diabetic customers ... depression is common with them and they will get discouraged easily. Remind them that the most important thing is control of blood sugars ... the weight-loss will happen! It may be slow ... but it will happen!

I know I said I listed the products in order of importance ... but the fact is they are all important! I can't imagine being without any of them! I feel so good on these products and if I miss even one serving I can tell the difference. These products have literally saved my life! Being diabetic imprisoned me with a very miserable existence... Herbalife has set me free and allowed me to live! Unbelievable!!! Thank you Mark ... and thank you HERBALIFE!!! Also, thank you Randy and Kathy Davis ... for not giving up on me!!!

Sincerely,

Jodie Overson

Denver

PS I am considered Type 2 Diabetic... I was diagnosed after my first child. Because I did nothing to help control my diabetes I am in need of insulin. This is very important for Type 2 Diabetics that can still control their Diabetes with exercise and diet ... if they don't get control soon you will suffer more later. The products I use can be used for both Type 1 and Type 2. The only difference is ... if you are on insulin or pills you have to watch low blood sugar. If you can control it by diet and exercise ... the gold program is recommended. Tang Kuei is an excellent product for diabetes because stress is one of the major contributors of type 2 diabetes next to diet and exercise.

There is so much information about Diabetes ... so if you have specific questions, I can help you with both types...

Just in case you want to know...for the depression ... panic/anxiety I use:

While I'm nursing:

•Formula 1,2,3 as directed above for diabetes.

•Herbalifeline-3-3x's a day.

•Aloe, all day long.

•Xtra-Cal- 1-3x's a day and 2 before bed.

•Ultimate Ginkgo-1 in morning 1 before bed.

•(**Rose Ox) plus, Extreme C - 1- 3x's a day.

When not nursing add to the above:

• k-8- 1-3x's a day.

• St. Johnswort-2 before bed.

• *- 2-3 before bed.

• Tang Kuei-1-3x's or as needed.

• Tang Kuei- 1-2 a day.

I also meditate and exercise. So there you have it, I hope this helps.

 

Osteoarthritis and Meniere's Disease (8/17/2002)

Ody Deans - Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa

odyd@mweb.co.za

I am 65 years and have suffered with osteoarthritis in the spine, left knee and thumb for a very long time. Seven months ago I have started with Herbalifeline and Tang Kuei, but I have had such severe pain recently that I had to visit a neurosurgeon who placed me on a course of Vioxx, as well as physiotherapy treatments. The pain in the spine seems to have eased a bit, but I am still experiencing pain in the thumb and knee. I am determined not to give up on Herbalifeline and Tang Kuei, and hopefully in the near future I can stop using Vioxx.

The other problem I have had for the last 5 years is Meniere's Disease in the left ear. This attack is so severe, it makes me violently ill for at least 2 days. I used to get it at intervals of 3 - 4 months. However, since I have been using Herbalifeline, Tang Kuei and Herbal Complex, I haven't had an attack for the last 8 months. I sometimes still get slightly dizzy, but nothing compared to a full attack. Hopefully with Herbalife products I will no longer get these terrible and debilitating attacks. Many thanks to Herbalife Researchers and Manufacturers.

I've also suffered from Vertigo. I went to 7 different doctors, and the 7th one put me onto a low-salt diet. When I asked why, his explanation was salt causes water retention, which creates pressure on the middle ear. So I lessened my salt intake, and I think with the help of Herbalifeline, Tang Kuei and Herbal Complex, it seems to have worked for me so far.

 

Weight, Skin, Ulcer (1/23/2003)

Tina Andrews - South Africa

naturalcare@mweb.co.za

Having tried a number of "natural diet" supplements to lose weight and without success to shed and keep off just an extra 5 kg's, I became despondent.

I was very fortunate to stumble upon Herbalife through an "earn a part-time income" advert. I decided to try the products before recommending them to others.

Within the first week I was amazed to have achieved the extra energy I was lacking after the recovery from Bilharzia. I had been using various vitamin supplements available from pharmacies which didn't appear to provide any improvement to my energy level. I also managed to lose 2 kg's in the first week from the use of the Thermojetics beverage only.

Within 3 months after starting on the Nutritional Protein Drink & Fibre & Herb tablets I lost my goal weight of 12kg's and a combined reduction of 54cm. I hadn't made any change to my normal meal at dinner and often enjoyed those tempting chocolates and cakes that came my way during the day.

By reducing fat and building muscle, I achieved an increase in my fitness & cycling speed.

With the painful experience of a bleeding stomach ulcer, I managed to soothe and assist the healing process with Herbal Aloe Concentrate Beverage. My overall health improved greatly.

Today, I have not only boosted my health but, completely changed the appearance of my skin by reducing cellulite with the combined use of Herbal Complex tablets and Body Contouring creme. As for those wrinkles that come with age, I managed to turn back the hands of time with the use of our Dermajetics skin range. The products changed the texture and elasticity of my facial skin. Now I feel and look younger.

I have also kept off the 12 kg's for the last 4 months and my health and fitness is the greatest it has ever been. Thanks to Herbalife.

 

Under Active Thyroid (2/10/2003)

Noleen Eksteen - South Africa

telephone: +27 21 946 3952

My name is Noleen Eksteen. I am 37 years old. I also have an under active thyroid and have been using Eltroxin 0.1mg once a day for almost 17 years. I had however gained weight through the years after trying every possible diet and ended up a massive 63 kg's overweight. My night vision deteriorated to such an extent the past 10 years that everything was a blur at night especially when driving. I was also constanly tired. Pear shape size 50 hips and 44 top!

I started the Herbalife products 8 moths ago and the following occured:

1. Night vision improved to 100% clear vision after only 2 days on the products.

2. My Eltroxin usage came down to 0.05mg (I am still using the Eltroxin,I suppose if i had a test done now it would be normal, There was a period of 2 weeks that I stopped using it and although I was not tired, I did found that the weightloss slowed down a bit, so to help my metabolism I decided I will stop using it once I reached my goal weight or size 34 for that matter!

3. Weight loss up to now already 38kg's and 182 cm. Hip size 38 and top size 38!

For the first time in my life my body is totally in shape!

4. I never felt healthier in my life! Blood pressure came down to 110 over 70 and my Doctor said he has not met a South African with a cholesterol count like mine!

Cholesterol came down from 6 to 4.7.

Please note that I am not making any medical claims, but because I feed my body balanced Cellular nutrition daily, the body heals itself.

 

Insulin dependent, Multiple Sclerosis & Fibromyalgia (5/1/2002)

Marion and Bill Jones

Hi, my name is Marion Jones and I have all of the above plus asthma, high blood pressure, have had a stroke, and a heart attack and arthritis throughout my whole body.

Other than that I'm in great shape!

Because of all these problems, I have had a lot of steroids given to me over the years and it started a liver problem. I have tried numerous ways to lose weight.

At one time my husband and I logged everything that I put into my mouth over a 3 month period. It was the Heart/Diabetic Diet. Every week, we took my diet log and sugar readings to the doctor. Every week I had put on another 2 lbs. I was very honest about it and it puzzled my doctor. He said that he previously did not believe that someone keeping that stringent of a diet could gain weight.

So finally, I told him that I was going to find another program.

That day finally came about 3 weeks ago. I found Herbalife and have already lost 16 lbs. That is a miracle in itself with all of the steroids. I have unbelievable energy and my stamina is unbelievable. I feel great!

I still have about 75 more pounds to go. But I know that I will get there and enjoy the meal plan that I'm on. I can't wait! If any of you want to know more, I will be glad to answer any other questions that you may have.

I thank God everyday that He led me to Herbalife!

 

Under-active Thyroid (4/26/2004)

Under Active Thyroid (27/4/2004)

Brenda Treasure – Melbourne Australia

When I was 42 I was diagnosed with an under-active Thyroid and was prescribed Thyroxine and was on this medication for six years. During those six years I continued to battle with my weight, but no matter what I did, the scales just kept creeping up to over 80Kg. This was making me depressed and then other health issues started to occur. My iron levels dropped to almost Zero, I was bleeding in the stomach, had oesophageal problems and no matter what I ate or drank, there was a constant burning and the feeling that something was stuck.

I was tired and lethargic and would struggle to get out of bed by midday. My joints started to become painful with the onset of osteoarthritis and needed strong pain-killers each night to ease the pain so I could get some sleep.

PMT was a terrible time of the month and laid me up in bed for 2 days with constant pain tablets for a week. I suffered quite regularly from Haemorrhoids – but the ones that I had could not be operated on – just had to grin and bear till they had subsided, which sometime would take up to two weeks, with very costly medications.

I started the Herbalife products at the beginning of June 2003, hoping to lose some weight, but did not expect these products would give me the results that occurred.

1. Within one week, my thyroid levels had normalised and was able to cease my medication and I have no need to ever take it again – All my blood tests show normal levels.

2. Within three days – no heartburn or pain and can eat and drink anything.

3. Within the first two weeks, my iron levels had risen and the bleeding in the stomach had stopped. My iron levels have been normal for months now.

4. By the fourth day I had heaps of energy to burn and woke in the morning refreshed and ready to go.

5. PMT is a breeze, and I no longer suffer from joint pain and have not taken any pain tablets for the past 10 months.

6. I have not had a case of haemorrhoids since June 2003.

7. But the best of all I have lost 20Kgs and feel proud and confident in myself and have never felt healthier in all my life.

I am taking the Ultimate Cellular Nutrition Program plus targeted products of Xtra-cal, Herbalifeline, Tang Kuei as well as the outer nutrition products and will never stop. These products have changed my life.

Type 2 Diabetes (2/13/2003)

Jesse Garcia - Chicago, IL, USA

jesse4passion@yahoo.com

My testimonial is about one of my customers amazing results with the products.

My customer is a male in his mid-50's and had type 2 Diabetes. Before starting the products he suffered from a variety of problems. He was always being tired, taking strong medication, 30 Lbs overweight, and worst of all his blood sugar level was over 500.

He started the Products in mid October 2002. I got him started with F1, F2, F3, Thermo Complete, herbal concentrate and celluloss.

In the beginning of December I also started him with the Yellow tablets and Carboguard.

After 30 days of taking these products not only did his energy level increase, lose weight and inches, but his Blood sugar level dramatically decreased to normal.

He continues with F1, F2, F3 and has a couple more pounds to lose so is now taking Total Control. And he's still taking Yellow and Carboguard. With the results he got he is a product lover and will continue to take the products for life. Just recently he has increased his product usage and continues to hold an average of 110 in his blood sugar level.

His life will never be the same again....Thanks to Herbalife!!!

Kidney (5/10/2004)

Carole Tomkins - Janesville, Iowa, USA

CAROLEGTOM@aol.com

telephone: 319-987-2385

At the age of 5, I lost a kidney and have lived a very protective life so in the fall of 2002 my doctors were trying to figure out what was wrong. My blood pressure was 190/90,my heart was beating between 87 and 92 beats per minute. No I wasn’t having a heart attack, but what they found was my one and only kidney was dying. The kidney was no longer telling the bone marrow to make red blood cells. The creatinine was at 3.1 (normal is below 1) and I had become anemic and would be on dialysis in a very short time. My cholesterol was at 244, I had asthma, which meant that I took 3 inhalers along with flonasel….and believe it or not I am allergic to most medications so I am very limited to what I can take

They told me the only thing that they could do, was to give me a shot once a month for about $1000.00!!! I asked what that would do for my kidney - NOTHING they said, but it would tell the bone marrow to make the red blood cells so my heart would quit beating itself to death.

At that point, I said that I was going home and pray about it - I had a dentist appointment about that same time and for some reason I asked Marc what he would do to make a kidney healthy…He said HERBALIFE! I started Herbalife in the early part of 2003…My blood pressure is 116/58 and my heart beat is 61. My cholesterol is 178 , I’m no longer anemic. My creatinine is 1.7. Yes my kidney is working and I no longer have to take my inhalers or the flonasel spray because I don’t have asthma. My feet and ankles no longer swell and I don’t have angina pain anymore…HERBALIFE has not only made my kidney healthy… it made me healthy and 21 pounds lighter and I am alive with energy to spare and I do Thank GOD for HERBALIFE !!!!

Update 2004 08 02

I started taking only Herbalifeline and Triple Berry for the first couple of weeks, and when all went well we added Rose Ox and (**Rose Ox). About that time they came out with Niteworks (July 2003) which really helped. It wasn't until some time in Aug of 2003 that I started the Formula 1,2,3, and all the tabs that go with the Ultimate Green Program... (now I only have to take one shake).

I can't take Total Control so I take the Thermo Complete.

Three things that I have learned about our product is to take the Beige (has English Hawthorn berry in it which helps to eliminate water from your body). *, which helps break down the protein that a person eats or drinks during the day and (**Herbal Complex) which helps wash out the kidney... I take two scoops of Niteworks at night and one in the morning... I do not take any of the products that are for just calcium. My kidney doesn't get rid of it, so I make sure I have it in different forms... *, has it in it and does the formula 1.

 

Weight, Skin, Ulcer (1/23/2003)

Tina Andrews - South Africa

naturalcare@mweb.co.za

Having tried a number of "natural diet" supplements to lose weight and without success to shed and keep off just an extra 5 kg's, I became despondent.

I was very fortunate to stumble upon Herbalife through an "earn a part-time income" advert. I decided to try the products before recommending them to others.

Within the first week I was amazed to have achieved the extra energy I was lacking after the recovery from Bilharzia. I had been using various vitamin supplements available from pharmacies which didn't appear to provide any improvement to my energy level. I also managed to lose 2 kg's in the first week from the use of the Thermojetics beverage only.

Within 3 months after starting on the Nutritional Protein Drink & Fibre & Herb tablets I lost my goal weight of 12kg's and a combined reduction of 54cm. I hadn't made any change to my normal meal at dinner and often enjoyed those tempting chocolates and cakes that came my way during the day.

By reducing fat and building muscle, I achieved an increase in my fitness & cycling speed.

With the painful experience of a bleeding stomach ulcer, I managed to soothe and assist the healing process with Herbal Aloe Concentrate Beverage. My overall health improved greatly.

Today, I have not only boosted my health but, completely changed the appearance of my skin by reducing cellulite with the combined use of Herbal Complex tablets and Body Contouring creme. As for those wrinkles that come with age, I managed to turn back the hands of time with the use of our Dermajetics skin range. The products changed the texture and elasticity of my facial skin. Now I feel and look younger.

I have also kept off the 12 kg's for the last 4 months and my health and fitness is the greatest it has ever been. Thanks to Herbalife.

 

ME & Glandular Fewer & Joints (4/17/2004)

Paul van Aarde - Nelspruit. , Mpumalanga, South Africa

paul@huxnet.co.za

telephone: 0724700422 (South Africa)

I was diagnosed with ME (Cronic Fatigue Syndrome)& suffered for almost 15 Years. Glandular Fewer was also mine to stay, I was told. No medication could give me back my life. Every Doctor & Specialist I saw took the Challenge to try and be the one who makes a breakthrough with this dreadfull disease. One of them has send some hair & blood samples to Switzerland & America. I was put on a high protein diet for my health, & had intravenous drips twice a week & other expensive natural medication. (The weight I lost during this time just came back again-but that was not my concern) None of the treatments had any lasting health results, and needless to say each year my medical aid was prematurely depleted, my money reserves were drained completely.

Then I was intruduced to Herbalife Nutritional Supplementation Products. In one month my life changed-drastically. I woke up before the alarm went off, to mention only one thing. After 3 months my energy levels were 75% restored. After 6 months I felt & looked 10 years younger. All my aches & pains had gone. Not even in a very stressfull time or when I have only 4 hours of sleep, do I have any of the old symptoms which normally would have put me out of commission again for a week or two. No more black circles under my eyes. I am still a little tired some mornings,(due to a lack of sleep,I have a lot of catching up to do) but before my morning coffee I take 1/2 teaspoon Thermojetics & 1/2 t/s NRG, and when I get of of the shower, my Turbo Charger is on. After my 2nd helping of that by midday, my 2nd Turbo kicks in.

My weight loss was an extra bonus, and I lost 10kg in 30 days. That was during December 2002. It is now April 2004, and I still have my size 34 pants fitting loosely. What a side effect? My chronic bloodpressure medication & sedatives are a thing of the past. I left them in the 2nd week of using the products. No more bloodpressure fluctuations. No more depression. Take away the cause of Depression and no more symtoms! AMAZING!! Herbalife Products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any illness, but it surely gave me back my life. Simply "Wellness through better balnced Nutrition" at Cell level.

Initially I used:

The Food (Shake)........Twice a day.

Fiber & Herb............Two off 3 times a day.

Thermojetics.H/C........1/2 teaspoon per day. (Initially)

Lipo Bond...............1 off 3 times a day.

Then I added:

Rose Ox..............1 a day.(when feeling like flu-6 a day)

Life Line............3 a day.Memory improvement-lots & lots.

NRG..................1/2 t-spoon twice a day.Mental alerness got a new meaning.

Tang Kuei............1 off 3 times a day.Back Muscles tention.(Wonderful relief)

I am still using:

The Food (NPDM), F&H, Thermo, NRG, Rose Ox, Lifeline, Tang Kuei, Joint Support. AND THE WATER-EVERY DAY.

It has been 6 weeks when my left knee was good. It is now 11 months, and my right hand knee is as good as new. My back is at least 50% better. 45 years of wear&tear-Horses, Motorcycles. I do not expect it all to get fixed in one year. I am very happy and stunned by the results to date.

A friend's wife said her "Arthiritis" is gone from her hands in 6 weeks. She still wants the benifit, so she is still using the Joint Support. My grandchild's Hyperactivity is reduced to no problem from using the "Food"(NPDM)& NRG.

A friend who suffered from ME said her hair, bones, muscles, flesh, does not pain any more after one month on the Food+F&H+Thermo+Rose Ox. She is doing her Ballroom Dancing again instead of lying down every day & every week, to tired to cry.

Unbelievable!! My latest "Wellness Insurance supplement" is "Cell Activator". It's only been 2 days. I am now a Herbalife Independant Distributor. If you wonder why...read this page again! How much should any one use of these life changing products? How much benifit do you want? At least take a step in the right direction. A castle is build of single stones - one at a time! Life is about Priorities.

THANK YOU Mark Hughes!! For HERBALIFE!!!

 

Anemia (7/30/2002)

Christi Jewell - Ohio, USA

Kristi5676@yahoo.com

Hello all,

I would just like to share this story about anemia. My daughter-in-law was horribly anemic her whole pregnancy (I think she was always anemic based on the cold she felt all the time, but who knows?).

She was kept in the hospital a day extra after the birth of my granddaughter because she was so anemic. They kept her on the iron regimen after release from the hospital.

However, 2 months later, I got her on an Ultimate Green Ephedra free program. She decided to not take the prescribed iron because an overload of iron is not good. Needless to say, within 1 month, she had lost 18 pounds and 2 clothing sizes, she was in her pre-pregnancy clothes, and at a routine monthly checkup, her doctor marveled at how her blood levels had increased since the last months visit. She said the jump was incredible and she was on the verge of not being considered anemic anymore.

My sweet convert of a daughter-in-law then proceeded to tell the doctor about the glory of Herbalife! Needless to say, the doctor now wants brochures on the product!

One small problem though, my daughter-in-law now actually gets hot in the summer time instead of wearing sweaters and long pants. Oh well, the cost of being healthy I guess.

 

A.D.D (5/1/2004)

Jane Corda - BELLINGEN, NSW, AUSTRALIA

jane.beddows@bigpond.com.au

When my son was 4,I was told by his day care lady that he had symptoms of A.D.D., and that she was attending a seminar about A.D.D. in the following week, Would I like to come along and listen in.

I did and recognised all the same A.D.D. symptoms that my son had. I went and saw a specialist (who in fact was A.D.D. himself) - he put my son on dexamphetamine, 2 tabs three times a day.

The change in my little boy was instant. very quiet, He listened, he behaved. but...at night he had horrible nightmares, night terrors, the doctor said, they sometimes happen, but not to worry, they don't suffer any long term effects from these. So on and off these terrors happen over the next five years. Last year, I became a supervisor with Herbalife and went through all the testimonials hoping to find something for my son. He was 11 then and hated taking the tablets, he said they made him dopey and stupid and he was getting more and more night terrors. By this stage I had weaned him down to 2 tablets a day (the thought of all those tablets everyday, all those chemicals, was a constant source of debate between my husband and myself for many years).

So I decided to try my own little experiment. I gave him one dexamphetamine plus one Herbalifeline and one NRG in the morning and he took one Herbalifeline and one NRG to school and had them with his lunch time dex.

The Xmas holidays came and during this time he would only have his morning dex plus Herbalife 2 times a day. His night terrors stopped, By the time Xmas was over he had probably had one or two nights of waking up but no terrors.

If you have ever experienced them you will know how horrible they are. When my son went back to school, he forgot to go to the office at lunch time to have his dex, After a month he told me this and I saw his teacher to ask how his behavour was. He was happy with his progress, but he would monitor him anyway. It is now the 2nd of May 2004. My son has just been on more school holidays where he didn't take his morning dex either, but did take his Herbalife, So far so good,

He is 12 this year and dexamphetamine free. My doctor tried to increase his dose saying as they get older, they need more. I didn't want my son to be on these tablets all his life and what's more he hated it.

Now he is happy, Sometimes he can be a handful, but I figure, he's just a boy. If his school work is not suffering and he's happy and we are happy then what more can I ask for.

Thanks to Herbalife, everything is ok. All you can do is give it a go, but remember its all trial and error, depending on the drug and what dose you are on, will depend on how much Herbalife to use. You must do this slowly and cut down the A.D.D. medication only when you feel the person/child can cope without it. This worked for me.

If you have any queries talk to your doctor about it. Thanks again Herbalife.

 

ADHD and Depression (5/1/2002)

Angela Graham

Hi, I have a 6 year old son who has ADHD and ODD (oppositional defiance disorder). He was taking Concerta and 4 125mg Depkote tablets each day. I have just started trying some of the products on him and I have successfully exchanged his 4 Depkote tablets with 1/2 a K8 tablet 3 times a day.

I also give him 1/2 a (**Tang Kuei) tablet at bed time. ( He never slept more than a couple of hrs each night until now.)

 

Candida (and more!) (12/29/2002)

I'd just like to share my health story. I'm a 27-year-old male and I feel better than I have ever felt. Fifteen years ago, I began a round of consultations with doctors to find out why was always tired, had sinus congestion, ringing ears, dizziness, stomach pain, back pain, sore joints, blurry vision and a cold every second week (or so it seemed).

Over the years, I put on an extra 15kg and in the final year of my degree (I failed many subjects - hardly surprising, as I was almost unable to function), I was diagnosed with hypoglycaemia and depression. I went through four different types of anti-depressants. I tried the meat-only diet, the vegetarian diet, the body-builder diet... everything you can think of.

Then I discovered my allergies to dairy and wheat were symptomatic of Candida and ME/chronic fatigue/yuppie flu. It was at this time that I started using the Herbalife products. I was sceptical at first, but reckoned I had nothing to lose, given my track record. Within three days, I had so much energy I felt like a new person. In a month I lost 10kg. I now feel fantastic and all my symptoms have either disappeared or are on their way out. I've been using the Herbalife products for 2 years.

(The products I started with are the Nutritional Protein Drink Mix, Fibre & Herb, Vitamin/Mineral/Herb, Thermojetics, Flora Fibre, Herbal Aloe and Rose Ox.)

I must thank my wife, Melissa, and my sponsors in the UK who helped me obtain the products. And this story goes out to anyone who finds themselves in similar circumstances - never give up until you find way to get where you want to go.

Hypoglycemia

Herbalife has changed my life! (6/25/2002)

Linda Scott - Texas, United States, Texas, USA

My is under control! I have been Hypoglycemic from about the time I was 16 years old. Two of my kids also had Hypoglycemia.

Years ago when my mother suffered from this, they called it PMS. Many times when women suffer from PMS they often have low blood sugar. Once the blood sugar is stabilized, the PMS can be dealt with effectively. Hypoglycemic people can suffer from fatigue, depression, irritability, confusion, headaches, sleeping problems, and many people are over weight along with many other physical symptoms. Doctors are not much help, many times all test come out as normal, and the doctors say there isn't anything wrong with you.

They had run the (GTT) Glucose Tolerance Test on me before and it came out negative.

This test measures the amount of sugar glucose in your blood, and shows how the sugar is utilized in your body.

You have to be in attack at the time you're at the doctors office for them to see that you're having trouble - it is very hard for them to diagnose and treat low blood sugar properly and there is no cure or medication. Low blood sugar is a personal thing. It's up to you do something about it and about the way you feel. Diet, health and good nutrition are the only answer. Low carbohydrates and low fat and high protein is what has helped me. Eat more, more often of the RIGHT things.

I had 2 small children when my attacks got real bad. I would at times have to breathe in a sack to keep from passing out. I would first have wavy vision, and chills, then I would get very hot and sweat and have shortness of breath and feel as if I would pass out. A very scary time for me when I was alone with my babies. If I drank some orange juice, or ate a candy bar it would pass until I could eat something. I never knew when an attack would come on me. As I grew older I knew I had to eat small snacks all day and not skip meals.

At this time I was under weight, and never hungry. As I gained more weight the attacks stopped. They only started up again when I became overweight, and started to jump from diet to diet. I was just not eating enough again.

After Herbalife came into my life and I started putting great nutrition back in my body daily and when I added our YELLOW tablets 3 times a day, my attacks stopped. I am on our Thermojetics Gold Ultimate program with Yellow now, I have lost 48 pounds and 4 sizes and I feel great. I am a Grandma of 5now and about to be 50 years old and I feel and look great, and so can you. I am going on 3 years now, that I have not had one attack. My blood sugar no longer drops and my blood sugar level stays level. All my symptoms are gone.

I will always have Hypoglycemia, but with Herbalife it is under control. Hypoglycemia can turn into diabetes if not controlled. You or your loved one no longer have to suffer. You are what you eat. Think about this.....

Where will you live if your body wears out?

 

Hypoglycemia and Anemia (9/1/2002)

Renee Peeples - Cullman, Alabama, USA

reneephd@yahoo.com

My name is Renee Peeples. Before Herbalife I was 20-25 lbs overweight and was always tired. I am hypoglycemic and have suffered with anemia for about10 years. My iron level would get so low that my doctor would have to put me on a prescription iron pill. The only thing this did for me is bring me up to borderline anemic.

I started taking the Herbalife products in November, 2001. Back in April I went to the doctor and she said my iron levels were perfect. This is wonderful. I have great energy. I've lost 34lbs. I feel great! Thank you Herbalife. My hypoglycemia is under control also.

The products I take are Formula 1, 2, 3, (**Herbal Complex), original Thermo Complete, *, LipoBond, yellow, herbal concentrate, women's choice, women's advantage with DHEA, Xtra-Cal, extreme C, RoseOx, (**Rose Ox), Herbalifeline, Tang Kuei, herbal aloe concentrate.

I hope this helps

 

Crohn's Disease (11/17/2002)

Edward Council - Lake Stevens, Washington, USA

eshealthy@eshm.com

I was diagnosed with Crohn's in 1989. At that time my Dr. was on the verge of doing a colostomy. He, and I, wished to try some experimental treatments of different medicines and steroids along with a very strict diet. My symptoms came and went, though not completely, for the next few years so I thought that this was going to be the way of life for me. A few years later I was introduced to Herbalife.

The first two months that I was on the product I was able to cut my medicine usage by 75% along with losing 37 lbs. (One of the side effects of Crohn's is weight gain, even with the strict diet). Over the next 4 months I was able to cut my medicine usage to 0 and also lose another 33 lbs. I have also been diagnosed with a Thyroid Disorder and also as being Anemic (blood disorder). The only medicine that I am taking at this time is 0.05mg of Synthroid for my Thyroid. I use all of the products except for LipoBond, Active Fiber, Flora Fiber and Activated Fiber. I use about 16-20 ounces of Liquid Gold, Herbal Aloe, a day. I Love Herbalife.

 

ADHD (5/27/2002)

Ruby van Dijken - Almere, The Netherlands

My son Anthony was diagnosed as having ADHD when he was 5 years old. Over the years I had been to doctors, psychologists, homeopaths, and tried him on various diets, some of which gave some improvement. When the problems such as lack of concentration, hyperactive behaviour and ticks got worse, around the age of 11 years, I finally gave in to the doctors to give him medication, which I had tried to avoid doing for all those years, because of all the side affects that were known about some of these drugs.

The first drug was Ritalin, which seemed to calm him down and his concentration improved, but his ticks became so bad that I could barely stand looking at him without feeling distraught. His head and face twitched constantly, then down his neck, arms and body. The children at school teased him as children sometimes do, and that caused him more grief. I went back to the doctor who then gave him another medication called Dixarit, which was often used for people with high blood pressure, and was known to help some children with ADHD if taken in smaller doses. So I started my son on this drug, and it seemed to have some affect and the ticks were a lot less.

At the same time he had some tests done at school to see which secondary education school he would be best suited for, and it was said that he had to go to a high school for children with learning problems. I was told that he would not have a higher level of education and he would be able to learn perhaps how to work in a supermarket or shop.

Around this time I came in contact with Herbalife, mainly for myself to lose weight. I had heard from my Sponsor about children with ADHD who improved on Herbalife's NRG tablets. So I started my son on NRG twice a day, and Formula 1 and Formula 2 once a day. He was also still on the Dixarit tablets twice a day. After a few days I noticed improvement in his concentration and behaviour. But what was more astounding was that after his first year at high school, they said he could do a higher level of education in Sales and Retail, and a year later they put him up to a higher level to do the Business Administration course. In his final examinations he did not only pass, but his results were 8's and 9's and even a 7 in the Dutch language, with which he struggled since we came here from Australia 10 years ago.

Shortly after that the doctor took him off the medication, said it wasn't necessary anymore. Since then my son has worked in Australia for a year as a sales representative for a Dutch wind turbine company, then a year in a Dutch company as supervisor at the age of 19. He is now almost 21 and is serving a mission for our church for two years in the West Indies and has no more problems with his concentration etc.

I am grateful that I came in contact with Herbalife. As a distributor at the time, I was also able to help another mother who had two sons with ADHD and they also saw marvelous results with their children. Thank you Herbalife!!

 

Hypoglycemia (6/19/2002)

Kristy DeHaan - Hesperia, CA, USA

kristydehaan@hotmail.com

I have Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Normal blood sugar ranges between 80-120. My blood sugar AFTER EATING is only 88!

When I had my daughter, I was in the hospital for 3 days. I was not allowed to eat & my blood sugar dropped to 37!

I am on the Ultimate Green Program. I take 2 yellows w/ breakfast, 2 with lunch & 2 w/ dinner. I have had no symptoms of Hypoglycemia since I started on the program!!

The key is to NEVER, EVER FORGET TO EAT (OR NOT TAKE THE TIME TO) &NEVER, EVER FORGET TO TAKE THE TABLETS. Here is what can happen if you do. I went to church one Sunday morning & did not take the time to eat or take my tablets. I ran some errands after church & still had not eaten. I was in the grocery store w/ my 2 yr. old when I started getting shaky. Then I started getting very nauseated. Anyone w/ Hypoglycemia knows these symptoms well. Things get bad very quickly. I went & got a carton of orange juice & I drank about a pint or more before I felt better. That will never happen again!!

Carpal Tunnel (8/24/2002)

healthywithpatty@netscape.net

My sister was taking B-12 for her carpal tunnel because she thought that would help relieve the water and pressure in her hands. Well the only thing it did was give make her heart race and have a burning sensation in her ears.

I started her on (**Herbal Complex) and her carpal tunnel has disappeared. She takes is three times a day. She has no more pains in her hand! She is now going to add Joint Support to stay healthy!

 

Childhood Diabetes (8/20/2002)

Tracie Gardner - Cape Town, South Africa

calvyn@mweb.co.za

My son, Owain, is 22 months old and was recently diagnosed with diabetes type 1. After drinking Herbalife shake in his bottle twice a day, his blood sugar is now much more stable and his insulin requirements have now halved. He's only been on the products for 2 weeks and we saw results within the first 2 days. Furthermore, he loves the shake, especially the strawberry, and drinks it in about 20 seconds flat !

 

Children and Cholesterol (6/22/2003)

Erin Janeke - Plattsmouth, NE, USA

ej6975@yahoo.com

Approximately 3 1/2 months ago my daughter who is 9 had an annual physical where they determined her as having borderline high cholesterol (191). After a discussion with the doctor and we explained the foods we eat and she was not real worried that it was coming from the foods, she decided she would re test her in 3 months. She was already on products to help with her Asthma and Allergies, so we added Flora Fiber and Herbalifeline. After the test was complete.... All the Doctor could say was "WOW". It lowered 30 points in 3 months time. I went back and talked to her again and the Pediatrician had said in the 40+ years she had been in practice she had never seen such a dramatic drop in points. Again "WOW".

 

My beautiful baby girl (1/23/2003)

Sarina van Aswegen - Bain's Vlei, Bloemfontein, South Africa

kvanasmweb@telkomsa.net

My name is Sarina van Aswegen, from Bainsvlei in Bloemfontein. I am a part-time Independent Herbalife Distributor

I was introduced to Herbalife by my sister-in-law, Louise de Wet from Kimberley. I initially started using the products to lose weight to prepare myself for a second baby.

I was very skeptical in the beginning about Herbalife because of the price, and signed up as a distributor to be a discount customer. I soon realised the business opportunity and qualified as a Supervisor in October 2000.

I had then lost 8kg's.

During a visit to my gynaecologist, I told him that I was using the Herbalife products and that I would like to continue using them throughout my pregnancy and he had no objections to this. At the time we were trying to fall pregnant again.

In January 2001 I found out that I was pregnant for the second time. I had not used the Herbalife products in my previous pregnancy 3 years ealier, as I had not yet been introduced to them.

On each visit to my Gynaecologist I checked yet again whether he was still happy to see me using the Herbalife products and every time he reassured me that there was no problem.

At 16 weeks, I had to go for a blood test for Downs syndrome. On Thursday, 26th April 2001 I received a call from my house doctor to say that the results of the test were negative, however, that they had a high reading for Spina Bifida. I did not even realise that they had tested for this, although I knew what it meant. I had not taken a supplementation of Folic Acid for long enough beforehand to prevent this.

We spent the entire weekend under stress and strain as we did not know what to expect. On Thursday, 3 May 2001 I had an apointment with my Gynaecologist. Although the blood results were high for this condition he wanted to take a further look through a sonar. He repeated the sonar 3 times before concluding, to our relief, that there were no signs of this condition

I was still obliged to go for a second opinion so as to be assured. The second gynaecologist could also find no traces of the condition and we got to discussing the fact that I was using Herballife products as well as another common supplement for pregnant women. She was very upset as she said that I was busy giving my unborn child far too much Vit A. At this stage I was already 7 months pregnant and decided that if this was in fact true that it was probably too late to do anything about it anyway.

When I went to my own Gynaecologist again for a follow-up visit, I asked him about what the other doctor had suggested and so we went through the ingredients of the Herbalife products together and we noticed that only the NPDM contained Vit A and also Folic Acid. I told him that I had already been on the products for more than a year and he reassured me that this had probably already been a help to my child

On Wednesday, 19 September 2001 at 17:45 I gave birth by Caezarean section to our little baby girl - Carla. She weighed 3.2kg at birth with no signs of Spina Bifida. On Friday morning, just two days after the caezar, I asked my doctor whether I could go home from the hospital as I felt fine. He agreed as both Carla and I were both doing well.

I recovered from this caezar much quicker than I did with the first one and had little if noner of the discomforts that I had with my first pregnancy. In my first pregnancy I was constantly nauseous and had severe heartburn, and in this pregnancy had very little nausea and no heartburn.

I belive that through the use of the products I was able to recover from this birth far quicker than before

Carla now receives the Herbalife products through my breast milk and I would like to breast feed for as long as possible. I also realise that it is not neccesary to give her any other vitamin supplementation as she is a Herbalife baby!

Products: Shake + Fiber & Herb + NRG + Lipo bond + Rose Ox + V/M/H

No more being teased at school (5/1/2002)

Carol Nekvasil - Denver, Colorado, USA

My son Mitchel is 10 years old, he is 4'11 and weight was 124lbs. He has been on Formula 1,2 and 3 for just over 2 weeks, he has lost 8lbs and would still like to loose another 6lbs. Everyone including his teacher has noticed a difference. By the end of school this year we expect not to hear the word 'fatty' any longer. THANK YOU HERBALIFE!

 

Diaper Rash (10/30/2003)

I wanted to tell everyone how wonderful the Herbal Aloe Soothing Gel, really is!

My 16 month old son woke up with extremely bad diaper rash, and he was in a lot of pain, he must have had an allergic reaction to something he ate. I decided to put the gel on the rash. A couple of hours later the redness had receded and he no longer was in pain. By the next morning the rash was totally gone.

I have tried everything on the market when he gets diaper rash and nothing ever works that quickly, we bring it wherever we go.

Again, I can not get over the wonderful benefits we all receive from these wonderful products

Childhood Allergies (12/29/2002)

When my son Tim was 3 years 9 months thank God I found Herbalife.

He was allergic to just about everything ie milk wheat artificial colours flavours preservatives dust dogs cats etc etc. basically he survived on rice products and soy. After a few weeks of using

•Herbal Aloe

•Kindermins

•Formula 1

•Xtra-Cal

•Tang kuei and

•NRG (he simply chewed the tablets)

he overcame every single allergy - this was a child that never slept through the night until he was 2 1/2 years old and we discovered he had allergies.

We took him off milk - that is when we all got the first nights sleep since his birth. It was great to find out that he had allergies but no one could tell me why and I desperately wanted to find out what was wrong with his body that he couldn't eat simple things like grapes without reacting violently.

Baby's Story (5/1/2002)

Patricia Weldon

I wanted to share my daughter-in-law's story about the Herbal Aloe Drink. It brought tears to my eyes and pride to my heart that I could introduce her to such a wonderful product that works! Herbalife is AWESOME!

Her Story - My grandbaby will be a year old in a week and she is the light of my life. I would like to share this story with other people who may have the same problem. When she was only three weeks old I was holding her after feeding her a bottle, all of a sudden she was gasping for air, she turned blue and lost control of all her bodily functions. We were losing her.

We called 911 and she was taken to the local hospital. There they said it was a reaction to her formula and to give her one called Nutramagin. Later that same evening it happened again and her doctor said to get her to Rainbows Hospital in Cleveland. Four days later after IV's and many tests she was diagnosed with chronic acid reflux.

The problem continued over time, though not as bad as that first day, and the only solution we heard from the doctors was to increase the amount of medicine she was taking and that when she got a little older she would probably have to have surgery. I was telling my mother-in-law about Haley's problem and she did some research on Herbalife's Herbal Aloe Drink. She told me what she had found out and asked if my daughter would take Haley off her medications and try this as she was sure it would help her and my daughter agreed.

That was about two months ago. I can't say enough about how this product has made a difference in her problem. There has not been any sign of acid reflux since she started taking Herbalife. We give her two tablespoons in the morning and again at night. I just want her story to be heard so that maybe it could help other little ones like it helped Haley.

Chronic Fatigue, Glandular Fever, and (sadly) more (5/21/2004)

Rhondi Gartenfeld - Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

desktop@planetary.com.au

Hi guys, I’m Rhondi Gartenfeld

Since the age of 18, I have suffered from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I have also had Glandular Fever, blood clots on the lungs, 10 broken ribs (through having Osteoporosis), a collapsed lung, a broken back, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Endometriosis & Fibromyalgia (to name a few).

I spent 3 months in hospital unable to walk & confined to a wheel chair & had also been issued with a permanent parking disability permit.

I was unable to get from the car to the house without having to sit & try to recoup what little strength I had left. After taking the girls to school & shopping for dinner, I would have to sit down for the rest of the day & read. (I have a permanent 10% discount at the bookshop). Great life eh?

I managed to eke out an existence, thanks to a well-known Professor, who put me on Panediene Forte (2x3-4 times a day), Tryptanol & Xanax. Also, due to my inactivity, I began to get ‘middle age’ spread.

I answered an ad to work from home (not sure I could even cope with that) & was started on the products. I lost 6kg in 3 weeks! Not only that, but because of the great nutrition & energy I got from them, I am now C.F.S. FREE, after 30 years !!!

I don’t need to rely on my medication anymore (I kept forgetting to take them anyway as I felt that good).

I now walk between 4 to 6 kilometers a day (I have done 8)!!! I have not seen a doctor in the 4 months that I have been on the products. In fact, I find my body actually craves the products. I also found that they have also given me a natural ‘high’ in life, nothing seems to phase me any more, not even my girls on a bad day! Now I have a permanent smile on my dial.

Because of my incredible results, my parents, brother & husband are now on the products & the word is still spreading.

Thanks to Herbalife… I now have a life !!!

 

Fibromyalgia, MS, Irritable Bowel, Acid Reflux, Depression, Chronic Fatigue (2/2/2004)

Barbara Kolb - Portland, Oregon, United States

baakolb@comcast.net

telephone: 503-297-7502

Before I started on Herbalife it seemed that my life was on a downhill roller coaster with all curves and no stops. I struggled to find the strength to make it through each day and was beginning to lose faith that it would ever be any different.

I have been suffering from Fibromyalgia for 6 years. This is a systemic illness which causes wide spread body pain along with many other symptoms. In my case these included Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Acid Reflux Disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Migranes and Depression.

3 years ago I became disabled after having an attack which is now believed to be caused by MS. My cognitive skills, motor skills, balance, and bladder functions were impaired. The pain and spasms in my legs became unbearable and for the following year I was unable to walk without a cane. I was in an "exacerbation period" for that year and then improved somewhat but still dealt with these issues along with other neurological symptoms to the degree of total disablity.

7 months ago I was introduced to Herbalife. At that time I was on 12 medications including narcotics for pain. I had no strength or energy and was severely depressed. Within the first 2 weeks I noticed an improvement in my mood, energy, digestive system and focus ability. I started getting better everyday and 2 months ago was able to drop my medications down to 5. Although I still suffer from both illnesses it appears that the MS is in a remitting state and I am much stronger than I ever believed would of been possible.

Herbalife has given me a second chance in life. The products give me the nutrition and strength my body needs to fight these illnesses and the symptoms I face. I now not only have hope and faith back in my heart but also a smile on my face.

Products I use: Formulas 1, 2 & 3, Joint Support, Tang Kuei, Xtra-Cal, *, Tang Kuei, (**Tang Kuei), *, St. John's Wort, Herbalifeline, *, *, Mega Ginsing Blend, Niteworks

 

Fatigue, Skin condition, repercussions from glandular fever (10/23/2004)

Skye Hinton - Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

skyehinton@yahoo.com.au

Product Story as of 22/10/04

Before I started on the products I was always feeling fatigued around 3:00 in the afternoon and needed to have a sleep for a couple of hours. I was going to doctor after doctor trying to find out why I was so tired all the time, eventually I was told that my body was not getting the right amount of nutrients it needed every day due to a condition called reflux. I also had glandular fever in my late teens which stays in your body for 10 years causing fatigue.

After just a couple of days of being on the products I experienced an increase in energy, I was no longer fatigued by 3:00pm and I had a lot more clarity. Now since being on the products for a couple of months I have never felt better. I get up at around 8am every morning, I bounce out of bed and feel fantastic all day long. When I go to bed around 10pm I have a great sleep and do not wake up tired the next morning from being awake for so long the day before.

I also had a mystery rash on my upper body around my shoulders and neck. I’ve tried a lot of other products to get rid of it as I was told by a lot of different doctors and pharmacists what it may be. Without getting the same answer. Nothing worked! I started using the Herbalife Aloe body wash once a day and after a week the skin condition cleared up.

The products I am using are:

•Formula 1 (once a day to maintain weight and for optimum health

•Formula 2 (3 x a day)

•Formula 3 (3 x a day)

•Formula 5 (3 x a day)

•Rose Ox (3 x a day)

•NRG (3 x a day)

•Thermojetics Chitosan (3 x a day)

•Herbal Aloe body wash (once a day)

Thanks Herbalife!

Chronic Fatigue, Kidneys, Life! (5/1/2002)

Brandi

My life before Herbalife, I don't really want to remember.

I was tired all the time, cranky, so irritable. I was having kidney problems which had lead me into the hospital numerous times almost killing me a couple of times.

A wonderful friend of mine was such a good friend he told me about Herbalife. I was hooked.

Just after the first week I felt total night and day difference. I had so much energy, my house was spotless. I could keep up with my three beautiful children. I felt like a new person.

Just four weeks on the products I went from a size 24 to a size 18.

I recently went to the urologist and he gave me a perfect bill of health. No kidney problems since December, I've been on the products since January.

I even have my kids on Herbalife Aloe. As soon as I hear them sneezing or coughing I put them on it, within a couple of days they are back to their normal selves. My kids are no longer addicted to the "pink stuff" that so many kids are. This is the healthiest they have been ever!!! Thanks Herbalife!!!

 

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (5/1/2002)

Susan Elliott

Hello. My name is Susan Elliott. At the beginning of last year I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, depressed, borderline asthmatic, overweight by 85 pounds and just too tired to play with my three year old son.

In June of last year I received a yellow booklet in the mail from Steve and Debbie Combs. I signed up for supervisor right away and got on the Ultimate program immediately and after three days, my disposition and energy was phenomenal. I added Rose Ox and (**Rose Ox) Plus and my breathing improved tremendously and I am happy to say after 6 month being committed to the products I no longer have the signs of CFSyn and am able to play with my three old son who has also benefited tremendously from the products.

When he was two years old he came down with a serious blood infection which totally destroyed his immune system. He suffered from Febrile seizures and caught every germ that came his way. I have had him on the Dinokids and shake and he has only had two colds in 6 months with no fevers or seizures and this is just a miracle to me.

Thanks to Herbalife, I have got an incredible life! With these great results I was able to sell my Supervisor order within two months. Yes the products sell themselves.

 

Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia (5/10/2002)

Randhi Wilson - Oregon, USA

Hi--I am a new distributor, and my very first customer* was a really good friend of mine who has been suffering from CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome)since 1994. She has tried absolutely everything--from acupuncture to Chinese herbology, read all research, and takes excellent care of herself -an all natural, organic gal, a vegetarian.

She has made a lot of progress in the last few years, and has been able to maintain a full time job. But that's all she can do, because the symptoms are still there--extreme fatigue, muscle aches, digestive problems, and sleep disorders. Her quality of life, while much improved since '94, has not been high.

I got her started on an Ultimate Green program about 2 weeks ago. I kept in daily touch with her, asking if her energy was noticeably different, and she kept saying that she felt no difference. On the 8th day, she called me and told me that she just realized something. Her first week on the products was the first week since 1994 that she hasn't taken DAILY IBUPROPHEN for her muscle aches!

She's jazzed, I'm jazzed. I got together some information from Dr. Jamie on Fibromyalgia and the products and just shipped her off RoseOx™, (**Rose Ox) and Herbalifeline from this advice. When I called to tell her they were on their way, she told me that it has been a week since she's had any over the counter medication for stomach discomfort, also a DAILY staple since 1994! She has also been sleeping really soundly, which for her is unusual, and will go a long way in helping her feel rested. The information that I gathered about CFS and Herbalife said that once the cells are properly nourished, then the body can get more rest--much needed in CFS sufferers.

She is one of my dearest friends, and I am so happy for her I could explode. And it's only 2 weeks! Just wait until she's been on the products for a whole month!

Herbalifeline for Good Circulation (5/1/2002)

Joy Donaldson

Just 3 days after I started taking Herbalifeline, my circulation had so dramatically improved that my hands and feet, which have always been cold and difficult to warm up, no longer have to be warmed up on my husband before I go to sleep at night! Both of us are quite happy with these excellent results! I don't have to sit on my hands all the time on cold days to keep them functioning. They actually feel warm to the touch now. And I am only taking 1 Herbalifeline twice a day.

 

Niteworks - Returned Feeling in Feet (8/11/2003)

Teri SantaFerrara - Syracuse, New York, USA

tsanta@twcny.rr.com

I have a 71 year old man who just tried Niteworks for the first time on August 9, 2003 and here is his actual email testimonial he wrote to me.

Here is a WOW!

I just tried Nitworks for the first time last night. For over a year I have had no feeling in the bottoms of my feet, very little feeling in the tops of my feet and lower legs. This was caused by a drug I took that had the side-effect of lowering my blood pressure. When I woke this morning, the feelings had all returned, even a little pain from when I stubbed my toes because I couldn't feel them and places where I had cut my toes while clipping my toe nails, again because I could feel no pain. It is now the end of the day after I first took Niteworks, and the feeling is still there! This is the first time I have ever heard of anything that would completely cure a serious problem with one application.

I'm going to continue Niteworks because I sense that it was working on other things as well...maybe age related that I wasn't aware of (my breathing and exercising seems much easier, as does the flexibility of my joints).

 

Niteworks for circulation problem (7/23/2004)

Nancy Snead - Chicago, IL

timnancy67@msn.com

telephone: 866-863-3891

My daughter is 32 years old and her feet and hands were always falling asleep at night. Sounds like a minor problem except she has a 12 month old baby who she sometimes needs to attend to during the night!

She was unable to leap out of bed as most young mothers would, and had to wait until the circulation came back to her extremeties.

She went to the doctor and was told "it was a hereditary problem (I have varicose and so does my daughter) and there was nothing that could be done." The doctor told her to exercise more!

She started Niteworks and had results the first night - no "sleeping" hands and feet!

She was skeptical and thought it was "just a fluke" so didn't take it the second night and of course the numbness returned.

Now she will be a lifetime Niteworks user - works like a charm! She is in triathalons every summer and also uses Niteworks to increase her stamina.

 

Niteworks-Sleeping & Varicose Veins (7/23/2004)

Elise Scivolette - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA

ESCIVOLETTE@HVC.RR.COM

One of my first customers, the husband of my good friend, started out with our Joint Support. He had suffered a knee injury after which he'd had surgery, and due to that he could not run through the cold months (which are most of what we have!)

After just one Joint Support daily he ran every day and all through the winter.

This got him interested in some of the other products, and the Niteworks changed his life and that of his family. His wife thanks me whenever we talk because he is now sleeping through the night for the first time in over 30 years.

She said he sleeps like a baby - no more up and down, pacing, snoring - she only wishes we'd had it after their son was born 11 years ago!!

I have another friend who got relief from varicose vein pain after one dose!

Thank you Herbalife & Dr. Ignarro

 

Niteworks - Results from just a two night sample!!! (8/14/2003)

Elizabeth Strode - Syracuse, New York

elstrode@hotmail.com

I now have a new Niteworks customer! Marian is 85 years old and for 30 years has had what she calls "black feet". I have seen Marian's feet and ankles and they are "black" with lack of circulation and terrible varicose veins.

I gave her samples of Niteworks for just two nights to see how she did. I brought this to her with her order of Formula 1, Cell Activator and Total Control.

I spoke with her after the two nights of taking the samples and she was absolutely incoherent with disbelief! She was thrilled to wake up with "WHITE" feet!!!

Not only is she feeling more energetic from the other products, but she has ordered her first container of Niteworks.

Marian was also plagued with the problem of moving her bowels from all the medications she has been taking and that is no longer a problem either!

Big Bonuses here with Herbalife Products!

 

Varicose Veins (7/16/2003)

Nancy Snead - Chicago, IL, USA

timnancy67@msn.com

I have varicose veins - had them since I was 14 years old so you understand severity. Bumping my leg or even having someone lean on my leg (grandkids) or walking on me (pets) is excruciating. When sleeping, I cannot sleep on my side with my legs on top of each other due to the pain. Forget about a leg massage while having a pedicure - out of the question!

I am thrilled to say that after being on Niteworks for 3 weeks, the pain is almost non-existent! I can't believe I can actually sleep "normally" on my side and am not experiencing the frequent "bruising pain" that was so common for me. As if that wasn't enough, I just spent a week walking around Disney World with my 3 grandchildren and did not experience one second of discomfort, fatigue or pain in my legs. This product is truly life-changing!

 

Varicose Veins (7/23/2004)

Vickie Jaussi - Santaquin, UT, USA

sjaussi@msn.com

For years my father, who is now 74, has suffered from extreme varicose veins on his legs. They would feel hot and be painful even to the touch. He wore support stockings which offered little relief. I remember how sore they looked when I saw them as a child. He began taking Niteworks and after a month the veins are now flat and the pain in gone!

Colitis and Crohn's Disease (12/29/2002)

Last year 2000, I suffered from a bad attack of Bronchitis which put me in hospital and subsequently I found that as an after effect I developed a form of progressive neuropathy which meant that my legs and feet were extremely painful and in fact virtually stopped working altogether.

I spent some two weeks in Hospital and six months recuperating from this condition. In about July I started taking Herbalife products (F1, F2, F3, N.R.G. and Roseox).

Now I was a little dubious about these ‘Herbal things’ as I was taking a bucketful of prescription drugs and have suffered from Ulcerative Colitis and subsequently Chron's disease for some 10 years.

I could not believe the transformation in my energy levels and feeling of wellbeing that affected me in just a few weeks. I also started to take the Aloe Vera concentrate for my digestive system and feel 100% better that this time last year. My weight is under control, my Crohn's Disease is comfortable and the neuropathy is virtually non-existent.

I now walk a couple of hours each day during the week.

I cannot recommend Herbalife products highly enough to Crohn's sufferers and anyone else wanting to improve their general wellbeing, be it weight loss or otherwise.

My Specialist could not believe my Blood Test results at the last meeting. He has been caring for my condition since it began some 10 years ago and admits he has never seen my results looking so good! Hope this helps to allay the fears of people considering using Cellular nutrition as a way of improvement.

Acute Chronic Crohn's Disease (6/17/2002)

Tim Ohms - Red Bud, Illinois, USA

starmaster60@Hotmail.com

Hi everyone - my name is Tim Ohms. I have been combating Acute Chronic Crohn's Disease (the worst kind of Crohn's ). It attacks suddenly and without warning for acute patients. Chronic means that I'll have it the rest of my life. I am finally starting to question that!

I went through all the tests you can think of (Very Unpleasant) just to find some help. That's not to mention the Specialists I saw or the30 to 40 different prescription medications I was taking - including medicine to counteract other medications' side effects!

I was only 18 or 19 when I was Diagnosed. I had already been facing the threat of losing my Colon or part of my Intestines! The Doctor said "I have not seen this so advanced in 90 year old Men! " Needless to say that scared me.

But After taking just Formula 1, 2, and 3 (Basic Nutrition) 48 hours later ALL MY ATTACKS AND TRIGGERS FOR THE ATTACKS WENT DOWN BY AT LEAST 60TO 70 % ! ! !

I am now able to have my life back.

I owe my Life to the person who introduced me to Herbalife!

HONESTLY ! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH HERBALIFE ! ! ! ! ! ! !

 

Crohn's Disease (6/24/2003)

Christine Edis - Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

christine_edis@onelist.com.au

For many years I had suffered with Crohn's Disease (which is an inflammatory bowel disease). I had daily stomach pains, painful bowel movements, wind, a swollen, bloated stomach, nausea and low energy.

I tried many products and diet changes and followed exactly what my specialist suggested, but nothing really worked. My prescribed medication did ease the symptoms a bit, but I still had on-going problems.

Within two weeks of being on the Herbalife program I felt a dramatic decline in all my symptoms, far less pains, and a lot more energy. I began on the Ultimate Program, and found that the Herbal Aloe Concentrate and Florafibre in particular have helped me with my problems.

Now I don’t get that swollen, bloated stomach and painful bowel movements, which was once a daily complaint for me. After being on the products for three months I could completely go off all my prescribed medication.

As an extra bonus I also lost 3 kilos. But the best part is that I’m actually healthier now than when I was on my medication.

I’m finally feeling normal again and I feel fantastic! Thanks Herbalife!

 

Crohn's Disease (6/17/2002)

Sheila Flint

My name is Sheila Flint from the Sunshine Coast.

I got onto the program to lose weight, ignoring the fact that I had had a bowel problem for a long time and my life was the pits as despite constant diarrhea I had still gained weight.

I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease about 1 year ago and told there was no cure and I would be on cortisone and other steroid drugs at flare up times, but constant cortisone and sulfa (Salazpipine) tablets. I decided not to go down this path, so I put myself onto Herbal Aloe, Herbalifeline and Flora fibre as well as the Nutritional Programme.

I went onto triple doses of these and in three short months I had completely reversed the bowel problem and I have been given a complete bill of good health from the specialist.

Stress is still a problem for me at times, and at these times it affects my weak spot which is my bowel and at times I still get loose, but mostly I’m great.

Because of my bowel problem, the whole of my health was shot and it's taken me a year to build up my immune system properly.

As a bonus I lost 2 stone and 14 inches.

Ulcerative Colitis (5/1/2002)

Yusuf Da Costa - Johannesburg, South AfricaL

My name is Yusuf Da Costa, ( Jose) and I have been in the supermarket /fast foods business in Johannesburg for 21 years. I am writing this to you as a fellow U. C. (ulcerative colitis) sufferer, to inform you about a range of products which has given me such relief that I seldom experience any symptom of UC anymore at all, ( for the past 8 months) and when I do, it is only very, very, mild.

 

I worked under tremendous stress especially due to the high crime rate in the area where my business is situated, and I was constantly fatigued through working 16/17 hours a day, 7 days a week. That kind of lifestyle leads to poor and irregular nutritional habits, and I actually worked myself to a standstill.

 

You yourself know that the exact cause(s) of UC are not known to the medical profession at this stage. (don't we hope they would find out, because then surely they could find a cure), but surely my previous lifestyle and nutritional habits made me more susceptible to ANY illness.

 

Early in 1998 I became seriously ill and was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis.

 

By the nature of this illness, I was bleeding almost non-stop from the colon and was using the toilet up to 20 times throughout the day and night to eliminate the blood. Whatever foods I ate caused me tremendous pain in the digestion and elimination process so I was not eating nor properly either, and I lost 22kgs within the first six weeks of my illness. The entire intestinal tract and abdomen was virtually permanently bloated to the point that even the passage of urine, which virtually had to force it’s way out because of the constriction caused by the swelling, caused crying & pain. The same applied to wind and the movement of wind within the body. Perhaps I am going into a lot of detail here, but the reason is that through being in contact with other UC sufferers on the World-Wide Web, it appears that many of us have differing, and more, or less, severe symptoms.

 

Because of losing so much blood and not eating nor sleeping properly, I was very weak and had to be next door to the bathroom 24 hours a day, and my whole life (?) became no more than an existence ! My wife and children were badly stressed because of my condition, and, this together with constant pain and suffering and (as you know) no foreseeable relief, led to me going through bad phases of depression. I went through suicidal phases, as many others that I have been in contact with, and if you have reached this stage, STOP!!! READ ON.

 

The medications that I was using never controlled the illness, and I suffered as described for 15 months, until, THANK GOD, I was introduced to Herbalife’s Nutritional Products. It made sense to me that, because the Nutritional Protein Drink, which is in a powder form, is consumed by being mixed in milk, fruit juice, etc, it would be easy to eat (drink), and should not be so strenuous on my digestive system, so I started using this NPD, and also Thermojetics Herbal Concentrate and Herbal Aloe, on the 25th of May1999.

 

I had no way of knowing it then, but that was the day that I got my life back ! Incredibly, the very next day, as the hours passed, I had constantly increasing energy, and on the third day I had my first nights uninterrupted sleep in 15 months. Day by day I had more energy and was feeling stronger and by the twelfth day I stopped taking my medication because it was finished, and I just never bought anymore, until, 5 weeks after starting on the products, THE BLEEDING STOPPED and since that day I have not had a single symptom of this disease! Three and a half months after starting on these AMAZING products, I had gained 16 Kgs in weight.

 

This happened during the first week of July 1999. Today is the 15th of January 2000 and my weight this morning is on 68 Kgs, up by 16, I use the toilet quite normally twice a day now, I eat and sleep better than before I became ill, and I honestly have never felt healthier in all my life, and, with unbelievable energy !

 

Ulcerative Colitis is incurable, and I cannot argue with medical science about that, but what I sincerely believe is that, simply through feeding my body with optimum nutrition as provided by The Herbalife Nutritional Program, my body’s defenses and naturally-designed self-healing capability has definitely been aided in this function.

 

Occasionally I feel the disease trying to take hold again, but I simply double-up my consumption of the Herbalife products, and I only experience 1or 2 days discomfort and it passes, because, as I believe, my body's resistance has definitely been enhanced by these products.

 

My whole family now uses these products daily to ensure good health, because we all need the benefits of proper nutrition, and I will not wait for one of them to get ill first before feeding them the products..

 

I strongly recommend that you use the products.

 

For sure, EVERYONE in the world can only benefit from using the world’s most advanced nutrition. These products are non-addictive, non-medicinal, and are formulated entirely from herbs and botanicals, in a soy protein base.

 

Obviously I cannot guarantee that you will have the same results that I have had, but the only way for the products to have a positive effect on you, is for you to get it into your body.

 

I have since become a distributor of these life-changing products. This is an incredible lifestyle, whereby I can help people with their health and weight problems, and actually be paid so handsomely for doing so. The emotional rewards are unbelievable. I do things these days which I never thought I would be able to do again in my life. Herbalife has not only given me back a quality of life which I thought I would never have again, but through Herbalife’s Home Based Business Opportunity, and I now work full-time from home helping others.

 

I do sincerely hope that these products will have the same effect on you, and that you will then consider taking up the magnificent opportunity which Herbalife International offers, for you to also HELP OTHERS.

 

I have got my life back now, in every way, and I will use these products for the rest of my life !

 

I thank God, and I thank Herbalife International.

 

Ulcerative Colitis (4/9/2003)

Kathy Williams - Glen Mills, Pa., USA

werforeveryoung@comcast.net

I suffered with Ulcerative Colitis since 1978. The doctors kept me medicated and told me I would be on these medications for life. I was convinced this was a disease.

It controlled every day of my life. I was always in fear of having an attack and many times choose to stay in the confines of my home.

My daughter got on the products and then brought them home to me. I got on Formula 1, 2, and 3 along with Aloe. Immediately, I had great energy and started feeling better. I knew the products were working.

After only 2 years on the products, I was given a clean bill of health and also was no longer lactose intolerent.

I am now 52 years old and feel better than I did when I was in my twenties. I will be on these products forever.

 

Crohn's Disease (6/17/2002)

Viorica Mihalcea - Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

Martin Kanters developed Crohn's Disease at 18 yrs and suffered terribly for more than four years. His doctor prescribed sulfur and steroid drugs (prednisone etc. ) which did help to some degree in bringing down the intestinal inflammation.

Through avoiding certain foods and keeping various stresses down, Martin had remained in general remission for the next 14 years however he still had scar tissue along his entire bowel and occasional intestinal cramping from certain foods. The scar tissue prevented optimum absorption of food and nutrition and he frequented the bathroom 3-4 times daily.

After 18 years Martin was seriously considering asking the doctor for a medication that would relax his intestines, slow down the metabolising of food and increase absorption, when a close friend introduced him to Cellular Nutrition. Three weeks after beginning the nutrition program he noticed major improvement in his bowel function. It was very clear that the villi of his intestines which were so impaired from the scar tissue were being repaired and functioning in a way that they have not been able to for years! A few months into Cellular Nutrition he could truly say his bowel function was normal - something he thought would be impossible!

Martin's energy level increased dramatically and he was also able to lose10 unwanted lbs. and clear up a minor case of eczema! He is thrilled! Martin was able to get on the complete basic program immediately because he was not inflamed or in a flared state of the disease. However another friend with severe Crohn's was in touch with Dr. David Katzin to learn the best way to take the products when in a more serious point in the progression of the disease and is described as follows:

Begin the following products when not seriously inflamed.

Lifeline,

(**Rose Ox),

Cell Activator and

Formula #2

ONE tablet of each daily until able to consume SIX of each daily.

Drink 1/8 - 1/4 cup Herbal Aloe daily and increase amount slowly as desired.

Remaining products (1,3,4, FloraFiber ) to be introduced later as the intestinal inflammation / discomfort settles .

Fiber must be introduced slowly to Crohn's sufferers.

 

 

Eczema (8/8/2002)

Shelly Echols

shelly.echols@cox.net

I have a four year old son that I started on 1 scoop of Formula 1 daily. After just 3 weeks his eczema is gone, where before I had to put prescription cream on him twice daily.

He no longer needs daily breathing treatments for his asthma. He only takes his daily dose of Singulair.

That is a MAJOR improvement on just 1 scoop of Formula 1 per day.

Amazing stuff we have.

 

Eczema (6/29/2004)

I would like to share my Experence of a user of Herbalife products. I suffered from Eczema on the hands and feet which was quite painful especially in the winter months on the hands. The ointments vaseline and what was prescribed by the doctor only temporarily eased the condition but not the itching.

I went on the formula one and the Herbal aloe products I found the aloe wash and gel very effective and use them every day my skin does not feel so dry any more and for my hands no more dry cracks no moore itching or discomfort on the feet.

 

 

Eczema & digestive symptoms cleared up, weight loss too! (10/15/2004)

Carolyn Smith - Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia

I started on the products in 2002 to lose some weight and to get some good nutrition, which I knew my body wasn't getting. I lost 9 kg but best of all after a couple of months my eczema cleared up. I had the kind of eczema where the skin over my knucles would split and bleed, making my hands painful to work with. The Herbalife products have been a magnificent relief. I have worked out that the main products for this are Formula 1,2,3 and Herbalifeline is helpful too. Outer nutrition products that are helpful are Hand and Body Lotion, Aloe Gel and Skin Activator (Skin Activator to help remove the wrinkling from years of using quartizone cream).

Earlier this year I started to get some digestive problems and I went to a doctor who recommended me to a specialist who then suggested I have a gastroscopy (where they put a tube down your throat to look at what is going on in your stomach). I couldn't bear the thought of doing this. So I decided to increase my use of the products which I must admit I wasn't using at the time, they were Florafibre, Aloe Concentrate and Rose Ox. Within days I noticed a big change and over the next couple of weeks the symptoms (which the doctor without diagnosing me thought could have been an ulcer, hernia or irritable bowel) subsided. This was great. Freedom from pain.

I should also say that before Herbalife, I used to wake up with really bad kidney pain. My kidneys would be so sore that I would have to get up out of bed (which I guess is a good thing..). Getting out of bed relieved the pain however since being on the products I have found that the kidney pain has subsided. One morning after a few months of being on the products it just dawned on me that I wasn't sufferring from kidney pain anymore. How great!

I really trust that these products do wonders for my body and the benefits and solutions they provide to a whole range of symptoms is fantastic. I recommend them to anyone who wants to be healthy again and is looking for a solution to ongoing health problems. Imagine not having that pain or symptom or problem that you have had for so long? I hope you enjoy the products and get the results that you dream of.

 

Eczema Relief (8/20/2002)

Tracie Gardner - Cape Town, South Africa

calvyn@mweb.co.za

My son, Devan, has severe eczema along with his little brother who has diabetes. They both drink the shakes twice a day - Devan is 3 years old and really struggles with eczema, especially behind his knees, where he often bleeds.

After drinking the shakes, he dramatically improved his condition. I really believe the quick and dramatic results to be due to Herbalife - thank you for making my children more healthy !

I would like to mention that the results were also noticeable very soon after starting with the shakes.

 

A New Healthy Life (2/11/2004)

Doug & Brenda Treasure - WYNDHAM VALE , Victoria, Australia

Brenda & Doug Treasure

‘A Way Of Life 4 You’

Thank you Herbalife for the new healthy life we now enjoy.

My husband of 52 years had been plagued with Gout for as many years as I can remember, hands, feet, elbow, ankle all needing fluid to be withdrawn at varying intervals & being allergic to the medical remedies of Allopurinol / Zyloprim which left him little alternatives except Colgout which started severe diahorrea lasting several days & left him lethargic & often only a short reprieve from his Gout problems.

June 2003 when we were introduced to an alternative namely the Herbalife product RoseOx which is an anti-oxidant & it really works. Our life has changed for the better. He can have a glass of red wine with a meal & enjoy seafood once again without fear of suffering Gout. If you have ever had gout you will understand the relief he has found with RoseOX.

Diverticulitis, sounds terrible, well it is and he has had this also. It gives you an appendix type pain most of the night and on & off through the day. This is serious pain stuff, he has had CT Scans, bowel x-rays, and only to confirm that it is Diverticulitis. What can be done? Absolutely nothing says the GP at least we now know what it is. Well that is no consolation if you are the sufferer so again "Herbalife to the rescue" - this time Florafibre. After 5 days on Florafibre the pain stopped & hasn't returned since he first started the Herbalife Ultimate programme and targeted products.

This is a testimonial of what ‘Herbalife’ has done for my husband; well it has done so much for me. Probably saved my life!

I have been on HRT’s for over 10years & until I had surgery 1 year ago I was unaware of the consequences. My Orthopaedic Specialist strongly insisted I cease the use of HRT’s because of the risk of clots forming after surgery. I ceased the use of them 3 weeks before my knee surgery & have no need to continue with them as I commenced Herbalife Tang Kuei soon after I came out of hospital. It helped with the repair of muscles & tendons and Herbalife Xtra-cal which helped the bones with replacing calcium. I am certain our health has improved immensely since going on Herbalife Ultimate Programme and selected products. Both My Husband & I have lost weight with a Herbalife shake a day, & to know that as we lose weight we are not lacking in Vitamins & minerals which our bodies need for a healthy life. We are still enjoying all the foods we love.

Please feel free to use this testimonial to bring to others our story of success.

Gratefully

Diverticulitis (7/7/2003)

Steven List - United States

Diverticulosis is the chronic condition that can cause abdominal bloating and cramping, alternating constipation and diarrhea. The “-itis” is when the little colon pouches become infected.

People with diverticulosis should work on gradually increasing their fiber intake from a variety of sources (vegetables, fruits and grains as well as supplements). The caveat is “move slowly” with dietary changes. It is usually recommended to begin with Herbal Aloe 2-4 oz twice daily and 1 Fiber & Herb three times a day. They can also begin a shake. Make sure they are making it in a beverage they are used to drinking regularly. Begin Herbalifeline and RoseOx gradually over the week for the healthful anti-inflammatory benefits of Omega 3's and antioxidant protection. They can use essentially all our products, just don’t add all at once.

 

Six Years I suffered agonising pains... now they're gone! (2/12/2004)

Patricia Rice - Hamilton, New Zealand

I started on the programme in March 1989 and in the first 4 weeks I lost 7kg in weight, and 3 inches off my waist, 4 inches off my hips and 3 inches off my thighs. I went from a size 16 to a size 10/12 dress.

For six years I had suffered agonising pains from Diverticular Disease, occurring every 2-3 weeks and lasting up to 5 days at a time and was easy to have an operation to remove part of my bowel. I was taking medication which affected my vision, made me dizzy and gave me the shakes!

During 1990, I introduced more products into my programme to help restore the flora in my bowel and after 3 or 4 months noticed the days between pains were getting further and further apart and the pains were gradually becoming less severe. By the end of the first year, my pains had reduced 75% and only recurred about every 7-8 weeks.

Now, after 4 years on the products, I have been able to avoid that horrible operation and no longer suffer from pain.

My hay fever is now virtually non-existent and I also used to get colds one after the other during Winter which meant a course of antibiotics, but in the past 4 years I have ony had 3 colds.

Endometriosis (6/3/2002)

Tonya McWhirt - Coffeyville, Kansas, USA

My name is Tonya McWhirt and I have severe Endometriosis. I had such severe cramping it was like labor pains times 10. It is so bad on the backside of my uterus that it has fused everything together.

I have been taking the Tang Keui Plus and rubbing the Nature's Balancing Cream on twice a day. I have had a total of 5 cramps, that I could handle, in the three months that I have been doing this. Before doing those things 3 out of 7 days a week I hurt so bad I didn't want to get out of bed. My doctor had me on Provera three times a day and it didn't touch my pains.

I quit taking the Provera as soon as I started my Herbalife plan! I hope this will keep someone from going under the knife to have everything removed, because there are other ways!

 

Epilepsy (5/1/2002)

Jennifer Mason

I have had a genetic form of epilepsy for about 14 years. Last year I got on the products (advanced program) and my epilepsy medication is down2/3!!!! To maintain this all I need to take is the basic nutrition, who knew it could be so simple?!

 

Epilepsy Relief (9/16/2002)

Rennae Hackler - Jacksonville, Florida, USA

rdhsherbie@yahoo.com

My name is Rennae Diane Hackler,

Before Herbalife I was a little on the heavy side -- enough that I would get easily winded climbing stairs. I was also quite a "couch potato" due to lack of energy. I had seizures so frequently that I had to purchase a Seizure Alert/Response dog for my own safety. I used to get stressed out over the simplest things, and the medicine in my pump implant used to have the side effect of making me car sick over the slightest movement.

After I started taking the Herbalife products, I started noticing changes the very next day. I started taking the products on a Saturday afternoon, and when I went to church the very next day, I felt so energized that I decided to climb the stairs to the choir loft rather than fool with the elevator. I used to get so out of breath climbing the stairs that when I'd try to sing, my pitches would be airy and off-key.

From my first day on Herbalife, I have been able to sing strong and on key even after the exercise. My dog hasn't had to alert me to seizures, I don't get car sick, I am losing weight, I've been going swimming and working out on the treadmill, AND I haven't gotten stressed.

 

Epilepsy Story (5/1/2002)

Belinda Haack - South Africa

My name is Belinda Haack. I am an epileptic. I started having epilepsy from the age of three and am now 34 years old.

I have been on all different types of medication but nothing really managed to control my epilepsy. I eventually got boarded from the South African Air force in 1993, because my epilepsy became uncontrollable and I was found totally unfit to even hold down a normal clerk's job in an office.

My medication is now Zarontin and Phenobarbital. This medication is costing me over R500 a month and still cannot control my epilepsy 100%. I suffer from Grand Mal and Petit Mal epilepsy.

Since I started using Herbalife about eight months ago, I have not had one epileptic fit. I don't know which specific element or herb is actually controlling my epilepsy but I am just thankful not to be having any more attacks!

If you have any questions about how Herbalife helped me with my epilepsy, please contact me.

Diane's Fibromyalgia Story (5/11/2002)

Diane Dear - Somerset, Michigan, USA

To whom this may reach and help: PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO HELP THE ONESSUFFERING

I am 37 yrs old. I was stricken with this illness the summer of 1999. I did not know I had Fibromyalgia till May of 2000. It invaded my body slowly over a course of months, weakening and deteriorating me to the point of losing 24 lbs and looking and feeling like I was gonna die. The pain was so intense all over I ached and burned to the bone.

My husband could not touch me, the children couldn't hug me, I was miserable, I turned to my husband one night and said if I don't make it through the night tell the children mommy loves them very much - I literally thought I was dying and they didn't know what was wrong with me. I had such severe chest pains like heart trouble but it was not my heart. I lost all my muscle tone and bladder control and energy to fight it much longer, doctor after doctor, test after test, prescriptions and false hope of what I had was wearing me down, as well, what an exhausting journey for the truth. Until I went to a specialist that diagnosed me with this auto immune disease.

I was first relieved, then frightened. My doctor told me "there is no cure, but I have heard that massive nutrition and soy based has helped women", so I gave it a try through a friend, and that is where my Herbalife life began.

The first day I knew it was helping, but I was skeptical.

The third day I knew for sure the burning had started to leave and my strength was returning. I was able to get out of bed and walk without a struggle - that in itself was a gift. I hadn't felt like this in almost a year. I stopped my vicadin and darvocet right away. I knew this was for real.

I kept gaining strength and mental clarity and ambition and the will to fight this horrible disease - Fibromyalgia.

If there is one thing I could say to help anyone with Fibromyalgia is listen to your body - it knows what it needs. I did not want to be drug dependent all my life for something they did not know much about.

It is all about the nutrition your body needs to build your immune system back up to fight this disease. I am now 116 lbs and have muscle tone and energy to boot, a great attitude and high ambitions again. Thank you Herbalife for giving me my life back, when the doctors I believed in didn't help me but just drugged me with antidepressants and pain killers that If ought against taking.

I'm healthy and feeling GREAT!!!! and gave up my accounting manager's J.O.B. to do Herbalife. I have been doing this for 10 short months and have replaced my income and then some plus all the wonderful Herbalife family I have met and had the chance to travel with.

I love my freedom and health - what better way to live but to live happy and healthy. Please If you would like me to share my story with anyone, please do not hesitate to call my home office. 866-816-5985

Fibromyalgia (6/17/2002)

Kathlyn Bergin

I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in July 1998. My first thought, of course was, was that it was arthritis.

I lost 2 jobs because of this diagnosis. Employers would not try in anyway, shape or form to understand. Falling down the stairs didn't help any. If I couldn't work 11 hours every day, then out the door I went. I survived the few months I was able to work with the help of steroid shots in my shoulders and elbow. In a way, I was relieved to go home, but little did I know worse it was about to get.

The physician who diagnosed the Fibromyalgia was a rheumatologist and, after several months of medications for pain, depression and sleep, I was relapsing. My next step was to try a Neurologist. He confirmed the Fibromyalgia, but said my major problem was chronic fatigue syndrome. My drug regimen was changed dramatically and over several months, I was on more than 5medications for depression, pain and sleep, and then I didn't sleep. The pain was still unbearable in my neck and shoulders, so I went to a well-known rheumatologist (2nd rheumatologist) and she confirmed the Fibromyalgia and diagnosed osteoarthritis in the cervical area of my spine. The disc has almost completely degenerated, and there are similar problems in my lower back. The pain got worse, and to say the least, the depression got worse. As a result, I was binge eating because I was so nervous and stressed out.

When I became a distributor and began the Herbalife Ultimate Green Weight Management Program, the difference was unbelievable. Even on the first day, I noticed that I had more energy. Within 2 weeks, the pain was gone and I was sleeping. My muscles felt stronger and I was able to get up and down on my knees easier. Now, I have added Herbalifeline and Joint Support and feel great! I've lost over 20 lbs and taking that weight off my muscles and joints made quite a difference. I had at least 18 trigger points on my back bilaterally (both sides), which are excruciating. The points were not quite so noticeable and a lot less painful. I could move with so much more ease.

In addition, my chronic headaches and occasional migraines have subsided. The depression has subsided.

Another symptom of Fibromyalgia is irritable bowel syndrome. Well, the products ,in addition to Aloe Vera Juice took care of that and the acid reflux.

My 75-year-old mother has stomach problems due to NSAIDS for arthritis and liquid potassium supplements and she took one drink of Aloe Vera and has been using it regularly. She could not believe the difference.

Thank you Herbalife!

 

Tammy's Fibromyalgia Story (5/1/2002)

Tammy Bolieau - Norfork, Arkansas, USA

My name is Tammy Bolieau.

I am 32 years old and for the last 12 years I have been in and out of doctors' offices with little aches and pains that over the years have gotten worse and worse. My joints hurt all the time, my muscles ached and felt fatigued all the time. If I was up too long, my muscles ached worse. If I was down too long, my joints got so stiff that I had to get up very slowly to allow my joints to move without locking up.

 

At one time I was an apprentice plumber working with my husband. We were working on a six story hospital and at times, if he wasn't with me, I would literally have to take my pants leg and lift my leg to the next step to getup the steps. If my husband was with me, he would carry me up the steps and take me where we were going. At times, I would hide in a corner and cry like a little baby because I felt so helpless.

 

I was told by the many doctors I had seen that I would need to seek counseling to learn how to deal with the pain and the constant fatigue and that I was going to be this way for the rest of my life and probably continue to get worse. I took several kinds of pain medications, muscle relaxers, anti-depressants, ulcer medication, sleeping pills, medications for acid reflux and some over the counter medications for the headaches I had everyday. Each time I would go to the doctor I would come out in tears because I got the same response "I don't know", or "You're stressed out." or "You are depressed."

 

I have been diagnosed with the following: irritable bowel syndrome, fatigue, insomnia, and depression. I have degenerative disc disease in my neck that has progressed to the age of 60. I have been told by more than one doctor that I shouldn't be in the shape I was in until 60 or 70 years old.

 

Finally in March of 2000 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. They did a rheumatoid Arthritis Factor (blood test) to check for rheumatoid arthritis. My blood work showed that my RA factor was 188 - normal ranges from what they told me are 0-35. I was way up there. Thank God the bone scan they did ruled out rheumatoid arthritis and that's where the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia came in.

 

I also have a Mitral valve prolapse in my heart and took atenolol 50 mg AM and 25 mg PM to keep my heart rate down for the past 5 years and to my understanding would have to be on this medication for the rest of my life. Obviously I was a total mess and not a pleasant person to be around!! ASK MYHUSBAND AND MY KIDS!!

 

Thank God - one day I was looking for a job so I could work from home (I couldn't keep a job - I was sick all the time or waxed from all the medications =o() !!!) I saw a sign that said "Own a computer put it to work" so I answered that ad. It was the beginning of my new life.

My coach asked me if I had any weight I needed to lose. Naturally with all the medications I had taken I needed to lose about 20 lbs. I got on the products expecting to lose weight but NEVER could have imagined what was to come of "that weight loss program!!" After only 3 days of being on the products, my energy level was something I had never in my life (that I can remember experiencing) felt before. I noticed that when I would go to get up off the couch ~ I GOT UP OFF THE COUCH!! No pain or stiffness in my joints.

 

As I got up the next morning to get my kids up, I noticed then that I just got up out of bed. My normal routine was to roll to the edge of the bed, put my hands on the wall and work my way out. I knew at that point that I would NEVER be without Herbalife!! After 5 days I had lost 8 lbs., after 10 days had lost 12 lbs., and by 21 days had lost 21 lbs.!!! My Irritable bowel syndrome was not irritable any more, the pain in my neck was gone, my muscles and joints did not hurt me any more and by the 4th week, I had stopped taking my heart medication!!! (Remember I understood that I would have to take that for the rest of my life!!)

 

I am totally medication free and have been for 12months now!! I absolutely love my new life and my new career. My husband and kids are loving their new wife and mother. I can play with my children without the pain and fatigue. ILOVE TO FEEL GOOD!! That's my story.

 

Now I want to tell you about my son Corey.

 

He is 11 years old and was diagnosed with ADD at the age of 5 and was on medication for 5 years. I felt soooo good I started both my children on it. Corey is now medication free and is a different child! My 7 year old daughter, Haley, had trouble with her tummy hurting every time she ate. her doctor put her on Pepcid at the age of 6!! I put her on the Herbal Aloe which she absolutely hated!! But I MADE her drink 4 oz. 3 times a day!. I did not want her to suffer as I had. No more tummy troubles for Haley and it's funny now because if we are out of Herbal Aloe and the UPS man pulls up~ she is at the truck, got the box and before I know it has little peanuts and invoices all over my floor so she can get her Herbal Aloe. She LOVES it now!!

SO MOMS AND DADS, ""BE MEAN"" make them take it. They will acquire a taste for it and they will be healthier because of it!! I LOVE HERBALIFE!! I also love the fact that I have the opportunity to help others change their lives and provide for my family too!! I thank God everyday of my life that He gave one man the vision to take nutrition around the world and that it reached my world.

 

So if you're out there and you are skeptical or hesitant ~~ DON'T BE ~~ just put them in your mouth and swallow them. You have nothing to lose but maybe a few pounds or some aches and pains or maybe even a whole lot of medication!!!

 

The health and benefits you receive are priceless!! If you want to know what helped me most with the Fibromyalgia, please don't hesitate to e-mail me.

Fibromyalgia, MS, Irritable Bowel, Acid Reflux, Depression, Chronic Fatigue (2/2/2004)

Barbara Kolb - Portland, Oregon, United States

baakolb@comcast.net

telephone: 503-297-7502

Before I started on Herbalife it seemed that my life was on a downhill roller coaster with all curves and no stops. I struggled to find the strength to make it through each day and was beginning to lose faith that it would ever be any different.

I have been suffering from Fibromyalgia for 6 years. This is a systemic illness which causes wide spread body pain along with many other symptoms. In my case these included Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Acid Reflux Disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Migranes and Depression.

3 years ago I became disabled after having an attack which is now believed to be caused by MS. My cognitive skills, motor skills, balance, and bladder functions were impaired. The pain and spasms in my legs became unbearable and for the following year I was unable to walk without a cane. I was in an "exacerbation period" for that year and then improved somewhat but still dealt with these issues along with other neurological symptoms to the degree of total disablity.

7 months ago I was introduced to Herbalife. At that time I was on 12 medications including narcotics for pain. I had no strength or energy and was severely depressed. Within the first 2 weeks I noticed an improvement in my mood, energy, digestive system and focus ability. I started getting better everyday and 2 months ago was able to drop my medications down to 5. Although I still suffer from both illnesses it appears that the MS is in a remitting state and I am much stronger than I ever believed would of been possible.

Herbalife has given me a second chance in life. The products give me the nutrition and strength my body needs to fight these illnesses and the symptoms I face. I now not only have hope and faith back in my heart but also a smile on my face.

Products I use: Formulas 1, 2 & 3, Joint Support, Tang Kuei, Xtra-Cal, *, Tang Kuei, (**Tang Kuei), *, St. John's Wort, Herbalifeline, *, *, Mega Ginsing Blend, Niteworks

Are The Herbalife Products Safe? (2/7/2003)

Tamara Geitzenauer - Lone Rock, Iowa, USA

tgeitz78@hotmail.com

How SAFE our the Herbalife Products?

My oldest daughter was diagnosed with what is called Long Q-T-Syndrome at the age of 19. This caused her heart to race over 300 beats per minute and which then made her heart stop. She luckily had immediate attention to give her CPR and then shock her 2 times with a defibulator to get her heart going.

She now has a defibrillator, pacemaker and takes a beta blocker.

She got on the products shortly after and has been on the products for over 3 years and has never felt better. Now if that does not show you how safe the products are then listen to this...

She is now expecting her first baby and still takes the products and her doctor said she could not recommend a better nutritional program for her. So let's put this all together...

Danielle has a defibrillator, pacemaker, takes a beta blocker and is expecting a baby in April. The answer to the question"Are these products safe?" is ---100%---Absolutely!.

Feel free to use this testimonal! She is on the original green program but has done the high protein one too. The only product she does not take while expecting is the Total Control, but after the baby she will. I will keep you posted on the Herbalife baby!! Thanks, Tamara Geitzenauer

Congestive Heart Failure (6/7/2004)

Helmut Bosse - Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Between late December 2002 and mid January 2003, at age 42 I had two silent heart attacks. The result of these heart attacks is a condition known as "Congestive Heart Failure".

Although I was taking doctor prescribed medications and exercising as instructed, I felt quite fatigued at times. As well, I was very restless and had difficulity sleeping through the night.

I began to notice a difference in my energy levels about three days after I started using Herbalife products. I have a Formula 1 Shake with the Personal Protein Powder once a day, and take Formula 2 Canola Oil tablets three times a day. Now, my energy levels are up and I sleep through the night.

I have since returned to work on a part time basis and am working my way back into full time employment.

I strongly recommend Herbalife products to anyone and everyone I speak to. They have given me a new lease on life.

 

Coronary Bypass (8/15/2002)

Gianni Geminiani - Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape, South Africa

geminiani@icon.co.za

My name is Gianni Geminiani. I was overweight, stressed, unhealthy for many years. In July, 1997 Herbalife found me and after losing 20kg I was feeling great, but ended up having a Coronary By-pass in December 1998. This was due to many years of heavy smoking which also caused my asthma. My left lung collapsed after the heart surgery and resulted in me staying in Intensive Care for 9 days.

Because of the good nutrition of the Herbalife products, my recovery was very quick as I was able to go back to work after just 3 weeks and have never taken any heart medication nor blood-thinning agents.

The other significant change has been the fact that my asthma has improved to the extent where I am able to control it easily without medication and only use Herbalife Products.

The products I use are the Protein Drink, Fibre & Herb, Lipobond, Herbal Complex, RoseOx, Tang Kuei, Herbalifeline & NRG.

I am now 56 yrs. old.

My whole family uses Herbalife products & I thank God for giving me a second chance & Mark Hughes for having the foresight to go around the world with these amazing products.

Before Herbalife I was 15 pounds overweight and constantly tired. I also had recently been diagnosed with a heart condition, known as Long QT Syndrome, which required me to have a pacemaker and defibrillator. At the age of 20, I had a pacemaker, no energy and a caffeine restriction!!

I got started on the products and within 2 days I noticed a dramatic difference. I had AWESOME energy, without having my morning Mountain Dew and felt GREAT!! Within 2 weeks I was wearing the jeans that had been in my closet for over a year! I have kept off those 15 pounds for about 3.5 years now, my heart is healthy and I FEEL BETTER THAN EVER! HERBALIFE is my WAY OF LIFE

Hi My name is Billie and I can't really tell you exactly how much I weighed I lost count at 467lbs.

I was too tired and embarassed to go out in public and I couldn't get weighed on a home scale. I barely had enough energy to stand up and take a shower which I had to do because I lived in a trailer and I couldn't fit in the small tub. When I was introduced to Herbalife I was having chest pains and my knees hurt very badly from my weight and arthritis. I started on a ultimate green program and within three days I could notice the difference in my energy level,I really loved the herbal beverage.

About three months later after losing my first 75lbs. I started on more products - Joint Support for my knee pain, Herbalifeline for my heart, * and St. Johns Wort just to make me feel good.

I have now lost total of 240lbs. and I feel wonderful. There is just too much to write here, so I better go.

Good health to you all. Billie

 

Lupus Isn't Winning! (7/23/2002)

Pamela Finley - Minnesota, USA

pamela@finleyweb.net

A market research study concluded that over 2 million people are living with it... Ninety percent of them are women. Someone you know personally is trying to cope with this insidious disease. Knowing first hand what this disease is all about, I am here to serve as a positive role model to others who are dealing with the same disease. Living with lupus has given me the opportunity to teach others how to recognize the symptoms, handle medical situations and embrace life with courage and compassion.

Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system, designed to defend the body, instead turns against it and attacks healthy tissues and organs. In a way, the body becomes allergic to itself.

My symptoms were all internal. Inflammation in various parts of my body, especially the skin, joints, blood, and was starting to attack my nervous system. Joint and muscle pain, sores in the mouth, low grade fevers, pleurisy, paracarditis, (lining around the lungs and heart) major fatigue, infections and valves in the heart, and my kidneys would shut down and poison my blood stream to where dialysis would be my only alternative. After rotating about 14 medications because it would build up a resistance we would have to change again. Being on antiflamitory medications and predisone, after a while we wondered if what I was fighting was the Lupus or effects from the medications. Was looking for a mother's helper to raise my 3 boys. Teaching my golden retriever to help up & down stairs. 3 knee surgeries. So I was really limited in what I was able to do.

Since starting on the Ultimate program I have gained energy, lost 15lbs in 2 1/2 weeks, was able to wean myself off 14 different medications, I have not seen the dialysis machine now in almost 2 years! Because of the good results that I have received from being on these products my doctor said he wished he could have seen my body if I was on these just 10 years ago!

Here is what I do personally with usage of the products:

Ultimate

•Formula 1- (2 x a day)(when I am at my sickest this is the only thing that will stay down and settle in my stomach. Good to know I am getting solid nutrition!

•Formula 2- (1 @ 3 x a day)

•Formula 3- (3 @ 3 x a day)

•Refresh Green- (2 @ 10:00 & 3:00) Original is ok if the heart is ok.

•Beige (1 @ 10:00 & 3:00)

•Herbal concentrate- ALL DAY LONG!!! Luppies lack energy.

•LipoBond- (1 @ 3 x a day) For my kidneys!

•(**Herbal Complex)- (3 @ 3 x a day) Detoxifying the kidneys

•Herbalifeline

•Joint Support

• (**Rose Ox)

•* with DHEA (Studies of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) as a therapeutic agent in systemic lupus erythematosus. New Hope for Lupus Patients. Van Vollenhoven RF, McGuire JL Division of Immunology and Rheumatology, Stanford University Medical Center, California, USA.)

Caution: Echinacea tends to throw Luppies into a flare. I personally have to stay away from Echinacea.

I don't know if what I do will work for everybody or anybody because we are all different, But it just makes sense that if you give the body what it needs on a daily basis it can do what GOD intended for it to do.

It has for me!!

Love,

Pamela Finley

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) (5/25/2003)

Gary Vozka - Rhinelander, Wisconsin, USA

gr8nutrition@hotmail.com

This is long BUT definitely worth it! This is a testimonial from my Stepmother who almost died!!

Hello my name is Judie Vozka. 10 years ago I got a stress fracture in one of my feet. It ended up turning into a disease called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD). RSD is a disease that can develop in your joints when you have a fracture. It is not a common disease. Once it develops in your joints it stays & inflames the area so bad that it blows up like a balloon. Any time you try to walk or put the area under stress, it will become inflamed & gets very painful.

Off and on for a period of 10 years, I would get flare ups that would make me bedridden for 6 weeks at a time. I could not even go out and shop at Wal-Mart or do any activity without my wheelchair. I had approximately 36 spinal epidurals. It was getting worse and worse and ended up in just about every joint in my body. The spinal epidurals were not helping. My joints were swelling so bad that I didn’t know how much longer I could handle it. I spent a lot of time by myself because everyone was too busy to be around me. One day when I had an appointment with my doctor to give me a spinal epidural, I decided right there and then it was time to do something; he hit my spine with a needle!! My other doctor told me it was OK to take my medication orally. That wasn’t working either. The disease just kept spreading throughout my body.

I would get episodes of the RSD once every couple years. It kept getting worse and worse & my flare-ups increased to about 3 to 4 times every 4 months. My husband Emil, (Gary's father) was lost and did not know what to do. I tried different nutritional supplements and other over-the-counter vitamins that we thought would help. They just were not doing anything. My husband kept telling Gary about my problems and kept telling him that we were trying one other thing. Gary always said that he could help me. Well when that one last alternative didn’t work, my husband called Gary and told him to "get her started on the Herbalife."

Gary personally set up a program that he felt would help me. He did some research through Distributor Relations to figure out what products would help.

It was September of 2001 when I got started. Right away I got signed up as a wholesale buyer knowing I was going to take these products a long time. About the time I started on the Herbalife program, I was experiencing breathing problems. I suffered from asthma and had been on medication for this for 27 years. I had been to the doctor and they just kept putting me on more inhalers. I was on 4 inhalers. An emergency inhaler when I would get an attack and other pills. I experienced breathing problems so bad that I would go into my bedroom and lay on the bed with pillows and breath into a bag. My kids threatened to take me to the doctor thinking I would get better. I ended up with all these problems forgetting to take my Herbalife.

I ended up in November 2001 having Congestive Heart Failure. I collapsed one night at home and to make a long story short, I ended up in a coma. I was in my local hospital in Rhinelander, WI for 2 days and then I got transferred to a better hospital that deals with Cardiac problem patients. I was in a coma for a total of 9 days.

Two days after I came out of my Coma my doctor came into my room. For about 3 weeks I hadn’t taken a step because of my RSD. My doctor came into the room, looked at me and said, “you are a 53 year old woman that’s overweight, you drink, and you smoke. What do you want me to do?” I was in shock to hear my doctor tell me that. He told me that when he came back from a meeting in PA and I was not up and walking that I would die! I was totally in shock at what he said. That was the turning point when I decided to change my life and show my doctor!

Gary and I talked about getting back on the Herbalife again and he got me setup with the same program with support! I followed the program and made sure because I was going to show my doctor that I was going to get better. I was scheduled for a 2 month check up with the doctor that told me I was going to die. When the doctor walked into the room and saw my husband standing there with me, he looked at my husband and said that he knew who he was but he didn’t recognize me!! I looked at him with a smile and told him that it was me. My doctor asked me what I was doing and what I have done. I picked up my head proudly and said with a smile that I was taking Herbalife. He told me whatever I am taking don’t stop. He couldn’t believe it!

While I was in the hospital with my Congestive Heart Failure, I was under a lot of testing. One of those tests showed that I only had 20% of my heart left. He assumed that I would definitely be on a respirator.

My last doctor’s appointment since that accident was August of 2002. My doctor took another one of those tests for my heart. My heart was at 62%!! I gained 40% of my heart in 6 months!! Here is the best part. I have not had an RSD attack in 18 months!!! I can get into a vehicle and go shopping at Wal-Mart. My husband and I just came back from a vacation in Missouri. I never once used my wheelchair! My husband now has a problem trying to keep up with me.

HERBALIFE saved my life!!!! Herbalife has given me a quality of life that I have not had in over 15 years!!! THANK YOU HERBALIFE. But most importantly thanks to Gary for not giving up on me. Thank you Gary and HERBALIFE.

Weight Loss and Heart operation Rehab (4/9/2003)

Suresh Murugaser - Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

sureshmurugaser@hotmail.com

I had a triple heart bypass operation in February 2002 as a result of a heart attack in Sri Lanka. I returned to Australia in April 2002 and Herbalife found me in late June.

Within 3 months, I had lost 12 kilos (down from 92) and have kept it off since then. I feel totally energised, still eat and drink what I want (only in moderation comparatively), and have got on all the targeted products here in Australia.

This means the Advanced Programme (F1, F2, F3, F5 & F6, Herbal Aloe juice, Thermojetics herbal tea, Herbalifeline, Rose Ox, Tang Kuei, Xtra-Cal and Florafibre). My blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure levels are back to normal, so much so, that my doctor is looking at taking me off the medication over the next 6 months or so.

I also use the mystic mask, skin activator and the Nature's Mirror (cleanser, toner, moisturiser). My face, which was pretty pock-marked and had its share of blackheads due to my oily skin has cleared up considerably. The skin activator used daily on my three operation scars on my chest, inner left calf and inner right arm have increased the healing process fantastically.

People are quite amazed by my results and I am so convinced that the products work that I've become a Supervisor as well!!

 

Hepatitis C Symptom Relief (7/9/2002)

Oliver Carruthers - England, England

ollie4health@alo.com

My name is Ollie Carruthers, I am a hemophiliac who was diagnosed in1989 with hepatitis c. Initially I had fatigue but this passed for 12 years, during which I did suffer from many problems which I now know were associated with the virus. The last seven years I suffered increasingly from alcohol intolerance, fatigue, mood swings and brain fog. Brain fog is the inability to remember or think logically, it affects every area of one's life. This eventually led me to decide to stop working and rely on the state. At the same time I was introduced to Herbalife, and decided to try it as a diet, not believing it could help my condition as I still have the virus.

After three weeks my energy level increased, and all other symptoms were reduced, I also lost 20 lbs in weight. Now 5 months later I am a Herbalife distributor and evangelist also working full time as a maintenance electrician. I have my life back.

 

Hodgkins Disease (7/23/2003)

Amanda Jensen - Cape Town, W. Cape, South Africa

abjensen@mweb.co.za

I cannot believe how these products have changed my life! In my early 20's I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Disease, had my spleen removed and underwent Radiotherapy.

A year later I was diagnosed with the disease again and this time had chemotherapy and radiotherapy! As you can imagine my immune system took a severe knocking and I suffered from constant lack of energy and constant visits to my doctor whenever the seasons changed or the flu was doing its rounds.

Since joining Herbalife and being on the products for the last 18 months I have not seen my doctor once!!!! My energy levels are fantastic and for the first time I feel I have a true insurance policy - thank you Herbalife and Mark Hughes.

Products: NPD, Thermojetic Tea, F&H, RoseOx, Herbalifeline, Herbal Complex.

 

Hodgkins Disease (5/1/2002)

Michelle and David Laderman

Hodgkins Disease is cancer of the lymph node system.

Last March 28,2001 my 22 year old son was diagnosed with it.

I immediately call and spoke to Dr. Jamie as to what products to put him on. Formula 1, 2, and 3 are essential. Extra protein, a lot of aloe, active fiber, flora fiber, and AM.

It took the doctors over 7 months to diagnose his illness. In the process he lost 30 lbs, had no appetite and was very ill. Within 5 days of his diagnosis he had his first chemo treatment with a port inserted into his chest.

Within one week of being on the products his appetite returned. The longer he was on the products the stronger and healthier he got. Within 3months he gained all of his weight back, he never lost his hair and his blood levels were above normal each week. He was not given any other drugs that are normally given to help with plasma, red or white count.

After his 12 treatments he was in complete remission and he has resumed his life and returned to school. If it wasn't for Herbalife being as great as it is his treatment would not have been as successful as it was.

Acne Rosecea, weight loss Psoriasis (5/1/2003)

telephone: +61 7 5535 5535

Geesje Dekker Burleigh Waters QLD 4220 Australia

Since I was a teenager I have always struggled with my weight. After many years of yo-yo diets, I decided to try Herbalife. I was skeptical as I tried every diet there was. Each time losing some weight but always putting it back on plus more. I was advised to start on the Ultimate Program, Aloe, Xtra-Cal, Florafibre, plus Herbalifeline because I was suffering from digestive problems caused through a Hiatus Hernia. I could not sleep at night lying down because of the reflux. I took antacid medication and Zantac every day. I had high blood pressure and cholesterol. I also suffered from Acne Rosacea and psoriasis, for which I was on Cortisone medication and was told by specialists that this was “incurable”. I was also suffering from a lower back injury since my early twenties for which I had regular treatments at a Chiropractor.

Since the day I started on Herbalife I have not had to have any medication for reflux or indigestion. If I get any hint of indigestion I just take a drink of Herbal Aloe. Two weeks into the program my skin started to clear up. I also started the Dermajetics products which helped refine my skin and reduced the redness.

My blood pressure and cholesterol levels are at a normal level. I have not had to have a visit a Chiropractor for four years. I have lost a total of twenty kilos and three dress sizes.

Clete Humphreys

Hello everyone I am a new success builder and my sister had been fighting high blood pressure for 20 years - the doctors had just given her her third pill for the pressure and it didn't work.

High Blood Pressure (2/25/2003)

Kate Russell - Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia

Katerussellau@aol.com

When I started the products I had very high blood pressure 155/110 and had been on medication for the previous 11 months. This was brought on through giving birth to my second child.

Through using the Advanced Program, Herbalifeline and Tang Kuei, in two months I was able to stabilise my blood pressure now 130/80 and within 4 months was able to come off the medication. My blood pressure has been stable continually for the last 8 months. No one can tell me Herbalife products don't help you!

 

High Blood Pressure Lowered by Niteworks (10/16/2003)

Nancy Yang - Quincy, MA, USA

istsoeasy@yahoo.com

At my annual physical, the RN took my high blood pressure and it was 122/72. That was pretty good reading for most people.

After 3 weeks on the Niteworks, I went back to the doctor's office and my high blood pressure dropped to 106/66!!

What an amazing result with the Niteworks!

 

Hypertension Reduction (9/1/2002)

Su Lewis - Barnet, Herts, UK

slewis8287@aol.com

This is the testimonial of one of my customers, Mia. Mia is in her early50's and in May 2002 her doctor warned her that her blood pressure levels were dangerously high and that if they did not come down quickly she would be in serious trouble. In addition she had approximately one stone to lose.

She had been on very strong medication from her doctor for 5 months with no effect. She says that she was desperate and did not know where to turn. By accident she saw one of my ads and rang to see if I could help her to lose weight and, hopefully, reduce her blood pressure levels.

I put her on Formula 1, Formula 2 and Herbalifeline. She lost 4 lbs in her first week and has subsequently lost a total of 22lbs.

After her first month on the products she returned to her doctor for her blood pressure levels to be checked. They had reduced slightly and her doctor told her that his medication had started to work!

Unknown to me Mia then stopped taking the medication the doctor had prescribed and simply continued with the Herbalife products.

When she last went to her doctor (August 2002) her blood pressure levels were normal and she finally admitted to the doctor (and me) that she had stopped his medication.

Mia is feeling and looking great and has now put her husband and son on the products because, as she says, she cares about them and their health!

 

Multiple Symptom Relief (7/29/2002)

Cindy Beech - Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, USA

cbeech@aol.com

My name is Cindy Beech.

I was introduced to Herbalife's Products through a Work From Home business opportunity. (I had never taken a nutritional supplement in my entire life.) I was overweight, chronically fatigued, depressed, anemic due to bleeding stomach ulcers, had chronic heartburn, and could not sleep without medication.

I got on the Ultimate Green Program & lost 30 pounds in 8 weeks & have kept it off for 7 months. From the very first day I was on the products I have never had one episode of heartburn. My blood pressure is NORMAL! My blood count is NORMAL! My energy level is UNBELIEVABLE! I have eliminated100% of the prescription medications that I was on and feel better at 42 than I felt at 22.

Sometimes you don't even realize how bad you feel until you start to feel better. Thanks to Herbalife I enjoy a quality of life that I truly never knew was possible.

 

Blood Pressure Experiment (5/1/2002)

Carrie Barros

I was taking Prinivil 10 mg for hypertension. I hate the thought of prescription drugs!

I have been taking Herbalifeline for one week, 3 times a day. I take one when I get up in the morning, one after lunch, or in the afternoon, and one before I go to bed so it can work with my sleep mode.

I also take the Ephedra-free green to not aggravate the cardio process.

So far, physically, I feel the same as when I took the Prinivil, but without being tired. I've been monitoring the blood pressure on my own, and it seems to be coming down. Wahoo! I just need to sell it to my doctor, and perhaps get him into my organization! (It could happen!)

 

IBS (2/27/2005)

Susan Rosser - Tunbridge Wells, Kent, United Kingdom

sue@rosser11.freeserve.co.uk

I had to let you know how wonderful I think herbalife is. I have suffered with irritable bowel syndrome since having my last child 12 years ago, and been through the indignity of having xrays and various other degrading examinations only to find that nothing, absolutely nothing works to alleviate the problem which can be an extremely embarrassing one.

Since starting to use herbalife products I have not only gained a new lease of life but I no longer have problems with irritable bowel. After 3 days of using the shakes and complementary tablets I am free. Free to enjoy my life and my children without saying I feel too tired to do anything or my stomach is upset.

Thank you, Thank you herbalife

 

IBS (9/10/2004)

Mindy Creger - Pullman, Washington, USA

emccreger@iglide.net

I started on the Ultimate thermogetics pack in Feb 2004. It included the formula 1, multi vitamins, cell activator, Thermo Complete, snack defense,lemon herbal concentrate,*,(**Herbal Complex),LipoBond and aloe juice.

I have had IBS for over 12 years now. I was also lactose intolerant. I always had a hard time in the morning. Most breakfast items would give me diarrhea - eggs, oalmeal, french toast, pancakes, milk. I often had to eat a sandwich for breakfast just so I could have something to eat.

Other foods I had trouble with were vegetables - the darker the color the harder they were on my system - romain lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes. It always cut into my social life too. Going out to eat was hard, because you had to worry about where the nearest bathroom was, and how fast could I get to it. It was awful.

After 3 weeks on the Herbalife products I can eat anything I want. On the 3rd week I had an omlette for dinner. I hadn't had one of those in years.

After 3 months on the products I finally had enough courage to try real milk again. I had no bloating gas or any ill side effects. It was awesome.

I am sooooo thankful for Herbalife and the new freedom it has given to me.

 

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (12/4/2004)

Nelly Gbla - Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, United KIngdom

telephone: 01255 429438/07980863622

Three years ago I was introduced by a friend to the Herbalife products. Little did I know that those products would change my life for good. Since childhood I suffered badly from IBS. I had several admissions in the hospital, used various diets advice and medications. The sypmtoms were bloating, constipation and bowels full of "wind". It made my daily life a misery, I did not enjoy going out to socialise, let alone going for a meal. I also suffered lots of headaches due to poor digestion, extreme tiredness and found it hard to cope with daily life. Since I started the Herbalife products I noticed the difference within a couple of days. I was so excited and could hardly believe what happened to me.

The products I started on was Formula 1, Formula 2 and Formula 3. Since then I also use the Herbal Aloe concentrate, Florafibre, Fibrebond, Herbalifeline, (**Rose Ox), Cell activator and drink lots of Thermojetics Beverage.

My advice is also to drink plenty of water, especially when constipation is involved. Since the start of Schapeworks, I also use the Personalised Protein Powder ,a reason to top up your water intake even more.

I am very passionate about the products and having the opportunity to help other people to improve their health.

 

Irritable bowel syndrome (5/1/2002)

Peet Els

My name is Etrecia Els and I have suffered for almost 5-7 years with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. After only five days on Herbalife I feel the difference and I am now using only Herbalife products and I don't need my chronic medicine any more.

I use Aloe, NRG, Protein drink (Formula 1), Fiber, Herbal Complex and Thermo and I've got lots of energy and I lost a total of 13 kg. in 5 months. I am a new person now I and I love myself again.

Thanks Herbalife

 

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (10/9/2003)

Maria Gibson - Cromwell, Central Otago, New Zealand

I'm 27 years old and before Herbalife, had suffered badly with IBS since about 15 years old. Sometimes it would feel like someone was stabbing me with a knife and twisting it around. I answered a Work From Home Ad on the net and started using the products as a distributor.

My supervisor advised me to take Aloe Concentrate and Flora Fibre alongside F1, F2, F3 and Thermo.

Since starting Herbalife I rarely have IBS problems and feel full of life.

Thank you Herbalife you've changed my life.

 

Meniere's Disease (5/22/2002)

Barbara Shelby - Shelby Township, Michigan, USA

I have bilateral Meniere's Disease (both sides of inner ear center......with constant nausea, dizziness, tunnel vision, heavy head, tinnitus, blurry vision, etc.) It doesn't take much to get one side or the other going--sometimes both.

I am now using Formulas 1,2,3, calcium, gingko, Herbalifeline, (**Rose Ox), and many others. B's are good and lecithin...I've lowered my sodium to below1200 and take diuretics...Occasionally try NRG...think it may clear my head a bit, but not sure....

I have been told to stay away from anything that is...or acts like caffeine. Is there anything else anyone can suggest? Before I started Herbalife, I was pretty much a couch person...Still have the Meniere's but everything else is great!!!

Fibromyalgia just about symptom free...and now more energy than in three years!

Meniere's Disease (8/15/2002)

Schalk Lubbe - Cape Town, South Africa

schalkl@icon.co.za

Hello all

My name is Schalk Lubbe, and in 1999 I was diagnosed with Meniere's Disease - a disease of the inner ear, which causes symptoms much like Otitis Media (infections of the middle ear), namely dizziness and nausea, sometimes leading to vomiting. Although it causes more or less the same symptoms, it is, however, not a problem of the middle ear, but rather of the inner ear, the cochlea.

I read a lot about the disease on the Internet, and discovered that (a)It is not known what causes it and (b) there is no known cure for it. Also, if it becomes really bad, causing one to vomit for more or less 24 hours on end, the only solution is to destroy the cochlea. That restores the equilibrium, and solves the vomiting problem, but then one is deaf in that ear!

I had tests done by an audiologist, because my hearing had already started to deteriorate.

While most Meniere's patients only have it in one ear, I have it in both. During the course of 1999 I was on sick leave for a total of 17 days due to my Meniere's.

Obviously, I wasn't very keen on the prospect of becoming deaf, and because no known medical cure exists, I decided that I had nothing to lose in trying proper nutrition. So, in September 1999, I started on the Herbalife products, using mainly the shake (one per day), one Tang Kuei tablet per day, and the Thermo for energy. Subsequently, I also started to take the NRG, but NRG is not caffeine free (and caffeine is the one thing a Meniere's patient is advised to eliminate from the diet), so I won't suggest that new Meniere's patients take it.

Well, the results were nothing short of stunning. During the first half of 2000, I was only on sick leave (due to Meniere's) for three days, and thereafter I have never been off work one single day as a result of Meniere's!

The cherry on the cake came when, in April 2002, I re-visited the audiologist, and she confirmed what I already knew - my hearing had improved a little!

I am sold forever on the Herbalife products!

 

Meniere's Disease and MVP (1/29/2005)

Martha Roberts - Portsmouth, RI, USA

mroberts806@aol.com

I have suffered from Meniere's Syndrome for about 14 years now. The first year was plagued with attacks of Vertigo at any given time up to 4 times per week. These attacks literally put me out of commission for days at a time. There is no cure and I tried controlling the Meniere's with a NO salt diet and diuretics. The only other course of action recommended at the time was to destroy my eardrum - an option I didn't even consider. The highly restricted diet brought my attacks down to about 1 per week - still unacceptable to me.

Pregnancy eliminated all of my symptoms and for at least three years after giving birth I had no reccurance of the disease and was able to eat regular food. I thought I was somehow cured...but it came back slowly and then began to escalate to the constant attacks again.

Just as it started taking over my life completely, I found Herbalife. It's been 5 months now since I started using the Herbalife products recommended here on Herbacall and I have suffered only 1 minor attack of Vertigo since (and I eat regular food again...yeah.)

The products I currently take for this condition are: Shapeworks Formula 1 - at least 1 shake per day, Multivitamin 3/day, Cell activator 6/day, (**Herbal Complex) 3/day and Tang Kuei Plus 3/day.

Other products that I take that may impact my results(although taken for other reasons) are:

Niteworks and Herbalifeline 3/day (I have MVP or Mitral Valve Prolapse which causes heart palpitations - often during a vertigo attack as it intensifies with stress). Only one heart palpitation in 6 months now.

...and * 2/day - my ENT was curious about the effect of my pregnancy on the meniere's and thought the increase in attcks at this point in my life could be a result of peri-menopause which can create an imbalance of fluids in your body - a major factor in Meniere's.

All in all - Herbalife has changed my whole life. While none of my conditions are life threatening - they are definitely life changing, but now I am free from them and the associated stress. There's nothing like having to pull over to the side of the road and trying to remain still (in a car with bucket seats, no less) for an hour or two until your equilibrium is restored.

I want to thank Herbalife nad Herbacall for giving me back the ability to live my life without fear, stress and the vertigo attacks that controlled virtually every decision I made in my life.

 

Osteoarthritis and Meniere's Disease (8/17/2002)

Ody Deans - Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa

odyd@mweb.co.za

I am 65 years and have suffered with osteoarthritis in the spine, left knee and thumb for a very long time. Seven months ago I have started with Herbalifeline and Tang Kuei, but I have had such severe pain recently that I had to visit a neurosurgeon who placed me on a course of Vioxx, as well as physiotherapy treatments. The pain in the spine seems to have eased a bit, but I am still experiencing pain in the thumb and knee. I am determined not to give up on Herbalifeline and Tang Kuei, and hopefully in the near future I can stop using Vioxx.

The other problem I have had for the last 5 years is Meniere's Disease in the left ear. This attack is so severe, it makes me violently ill for at least 2 days. I used to get it at intervals of 3 - 4 months. However, since I have been using Herbalifeline, Tang Kuei and Herbal Complex, I haven't had an attack for the last 8 months. I sometimes still get slightly dizzy, but nothing compared to a full attack. Hopefully with Herbalife products I will no longer get these terrible and debilitating attacks. Many thanks to Herbalife Researchers and Manufacturers.

I've also suffered from Vertigo. I went to 7 different doctors, and the 7th one put me onto a low-salt diet. When I asked why, his explanation was salt causes water retention, which creates pressure on the middle ear. So I lessened my salt intake, and I think with the help of Herbalifeline, Tang Kuei and Herbal Complex, it seems to have worked for me so far.

 

Dealing with M.E. (1/23/2003)

Simone Borley - Cambridgeshire, UK

sborley@wealthy-at-home.com

My name is Simone Borley and I live in Cambridgeshire. Having been a sales executive for 21 years, I was diagnosed with M.E. in January of this year [2002], after extensive tests. I was bedbound for some time but improved enough to get around the house, and on brave days go out to Tescos and the like. However, I often suffered with bad panic attacks when out and was extremely low in myself. I had to give up my job and basically thought of myself as unemployable.

I found Herbalife on the Internet when looking for a job that I could do from home, and my contact advised that I start on the products. I started with Formula 1 shake, Formula 2, Formula 3 and the Thermo beverage.

Within 4 days I had lost 4lbs, 1” from my waist but most importantly, I suddenly had energy which I had not had for some time.

I have been on the products for 10 weeks now, taking all of the herbalife range. I have lost 22lbs, 4” from my bust, 6” from my waist and 7” from my hips, all of which is great but the best thing of all is that I have fantastic energy, I am able to work my Herbalife business nearly full time, I do not sleep during the day anymore (and haven’t for some 6-8 weeks) and I feel absolutely brilliant.

I would recommend the Herbalife products to anyone and everyone but especially to people who have M.E. as there is nothing like the feeling of energy and hope.

 

ME & Glandular Fewer & Joints (4/17/2004)

Paul van Aarde - Nelspruit. , Mpumalanga, South Africa

paul@huxnet.co.za

telephone: 0724700422 (South Africa)

I was diagnosed with ME (Cronic Fatigue Syndrome)& suffered for almost 15 Years. Glandular Fewer was also mine to stay, I was told. No medication could give me back my life. Every Doctor & Specialist I saw took the Challenge to try and be the one who makes a breakthrough with this dreadfull disease. One of them has send some hair & blood samples to Switzerland & America. I was put on a high protein diet for my health, & had intravenous drips twice a week & other expensive natural medication. (The weight I lost during this time just came back again-but that was not my concern) None of the treatments had any lasting health results, and needless to say each year my medical aid was prematurely depleted, my money reserves were drained completely.

Then I was intruduced to Herbalife Nutritional Supplementation Products. In one month my life changed-drastically. I woke up before the alarm went off, to mention only one thing. After 3 months my energy levels were 75% restored. After 6 months I felt & looked 10 years younger. All my aches & pains had gone. Not even in a very stressfull time or when I have only 4 hours of sleep, do I have any of the old symptoms which normally would have put me out of commission again for a week or two. No more black circles under my eyes. I am still a little tired some mornings,(due to a lack of sleep,I have a lot of catching up to do) but before my morning coffee I take 1/2 teaspoon Thermojetics & 1/2 t/s NRG, and when I get of of the shower, my Turbo Charger is on. After my 2nd helping of that by midday, my 2nd Turbo kicks in.

My weight loss was an extra bonus, and I lost 10kg in 30 days. That was during December 2002. It is now April 2004, and I still have my size 34 pants fitting loosely. What a side effect? My chronic bloodpressure medication & sedatives are a thing of the past. I left them in the 2nd week of using the products. No more bloodpressure fluctuations. No more depression. Take away the cause of Depression and no more symtoms! AMAZING!! Herbalife Products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any illness, but it surely gave me back my life. Simply "Wellness through better balnced Nutrition" at Cell level.

Initially I used:

The Food (Shake)........Twice a day.

Fiber & Herb............Two off 3 times a day.

Thermojetics.H/C........1/2 teaspoon per day. (Initially)

Lipo Bond...............1 off 3 times a day.

Then I added:

Rose Ox..............1 a day.(when feeling like flu-6 a day)

Life Line............3 a day.Memory improvement-lots & lots.

NRG..................1/2 t-spoon twice a day.Mental alerness got a new meaning.

Tang Kuei............1 off 3 times a day.Back Muscles tention.(Wonderful relief)

I am still using:

The Food (NPDM), F&H, Thermo, NRG, Rose Ox, Lifeline, Tang Kuei, Joint Support. AND THE WATER-EVERY DAY.

It has been 6 weeks when my left knee was good. It is now 11 months, and my right hand knee is as good as new. My back is at least 50% better. 45 years of wear&tear-Horses, Motorcycles. I do not expect it all to get fixed in one year. I am very happy and stunned by the results to date.

A friend's wife said her "Arthiritis" is gone from her hands in 6 weeks. She still wants the benifit, so she is still using the Joint Support. My grandchild's Hyperactivity is reduced to no problem from using the "Food"(NPDM)& NRG.

A friend who suffered from ME said her hair, bones, muscles, flesh, does not pain any more after one month on the Food+F&H+Thermo+Rose Ox. She is doing her Ballroom Dancing again instead of lying down every day & every week, to tired to cry.

Unbelievable!! My latest "Wellness Insurance supplement" is "Cell Activator". It's only been 2 days. I am now a Herbalife Independant Distributor. If you wonder why...read this page again! How much should any one use of these life changing products? How much benifit do you want? At least take a step in the right direction. A castle is build of single stones - one at a time! Life is about Priorities.

THANK YOU Mark Hughes!! For HERBALIFE!!!

 

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (4/18/2004)

Allan & Fely Parker - Oamaru, Otago, New Zealand

parkersplace@xtra.co.nz

telephone: 03) 4349118

Hi! My name is Allan.

I have had the misfortune to become an M.E. sufferer since an initial bout of complete energy loss plus maximum physical fatigue towards the end of a three week jungle patrol in the highlands of northern Malaya in 1958 whilst serving there as an infantry soldier with the New Zealand Army. To say that it has made a mess of my life over much of the time since then would be the understatement of all time!

I attempted to live life as best as I could under the circumstances but by 1986-87 I was put off work and so had to exist on an invalid's benefit mostly from then on. The only medication I could afford, apart from vitamin B12 injections and multi B vitamin tablets which didn't cost at that time anyway, were what may have been offered on trials. I was quite skeptical about Herbalife to start with because nothing else had done much of anything to help.

But we had signed up as distributors so both my wife and I started on the product {ULTIMATE programme}. Within three weeks a definite improvement was noticable, especially with my digestion. It really felt for the first time in many years that it was in gear again. I also obtain a very good result with N.R.G. tablets {3 half an hour before breakfast}, really gives me a great energy boost for most of the day. {I have been operating a part time lawnmowing business for the last three years}. I am looking forward to experiencing further improvements to general health in the future.

Thank you, Herbalife, and thank you to my wife for responding to that "work from home" ad. which got us started.

Sincerely,

Allan Parker

 

Success with ME (Chronic fatigue Syndrome) (6/22/2003)

Angie Thompson - Solihull, West Midlands, United Kingdom

tangieth@aol.com

telephone: 0121 7050904

Four weeks ago I was approached by a friend who has had ME for 2 years. She was finding it more and more difficult to lead a normal life and be able to look after her daughters. She looked awful.

She asked me if the Products could help her and I told her we could only try. She had nothing to lose and so much to gain.

I put her onto Formula 1 twice a day for the nutrition, and Formula 2 to detox and as an added boost to her vitality, I put her onto a teaspoon of the Thermojetics Herbal Beverage which she took 3 times a day.

After a week she said it wasn't helping but I told her she had to persevere. After 2 weeks she said she was definitely feeling better and had also lost 5 lbs.

After 4 weeks she is so excited about her result she is telling everyone! She is feeling fantastic and has now lost 8lbs!!! She has become a discount customer and she will benefit financially from the orders she is now getting from her friends, who are very impressed with her results.

Isn't this a great outcome?

 

Sports Nutrition (11/12/2003)

Keith Dungait - Northumberland, England

The millennium arrived and like any 23 year old I celebrated (to the excess) and woke up with what I thought was a huge hangover. This didn’t go away for about 2 months, I’d actually caught a bad case of flu and it knocked me off my feet. From that I got a secondary chest infection, which completely wiped me out. I would be off work for a month, go back for a week then off again, I was on the sick for 5 – 6 months, I simply had no energy and my muscles ached constantly. I play rugby, I couldn’t actually play for 1 year I was that tired. The doctor said I had ‘post viral fatigue syndrome’ – a form of ME; it would be in my system for about 3 years. Every morning when I woke up my chest was “full”. He prescribed me 2 different types of antibiotics, which had no effect what so ever. I saw a specialist and he diagnosed me as having the symptoms of asthma but it wasn’t! All I had to do was rest and battle it out.

I soon started using Herbalife’s (**Rose Ox) Plus, within 10 days of taking it I had noticed a massive difference every morning. The one major thing I had noticed was that by now I had started gentle rugby training again and for the first ½ hour or so I couldn’t breathe very well until fully warmed up. Within 2 weeks of taking the product I could go out and join in the warm up straight away without wheezing.

The next major achievement came in January 2001. I had started playing rugby again in December 2000 and managed a couple of games for my local club. In my younger days I had been involved in representative squads and because my name was in the system I got invited to join a representative squad called the Scottish Exiles. I explained my illness and that I was not fit, but they told me if they saw enough skill they would get me fit. To cut a long story short, out of the 21 players in the team that were undefeated and won the championship 19 were semi professional or professional players (2 of them are now full Scottish Internationals). I was one of the 2 amateurs in the squad. These players had a whole season of rugby fitness, training and matches behind them, I had about 5 weeks!!! The last game was the decider for the championship, I played the whole game and we won. I totally and utterly put the energy and stamina I had to get through the toughest game I had ever played in my career to Herbalife products. I was using Formula 1, 2, thermo bev (litres and litres of) and NRG, along of course with my trusty (**Rose Ox). At the end of the game I was shattered, but an hour later I was at the post match function as well as any body in the room. By the way 3 of that squad got international caps for Scotland the next season.

This really brought home to me the power of the Herbalife range of products. I now take all the products in the range, have noticed a major difference in not only my all round energy levels, but my recovery rates after playing and training awe incredible. Last season I actually got drug tested after a national division 3 game, I was using every product in the Herbalife range and the test was clear.

 

Weightloss, Arthritis and Acne, period symptoms (7/13/2004)

Paula Henley - Melbourne , Victoria, Australia

pjhenley@bigpond.com.au

I would like to share my results in the hope that this gives someone out there some faith into trying the Herbalife Cellular Nutrition system.

I wanted to lose weight badly as I was lacking confidence, uncomfortable in the size clothing that i was in and just plain embarrassed around people that I knew who were noticing the weight that I was putting on. To sum it up I felt pretty awful about life. I was also suffering from pretty bad hormonal acne which made me feel like a Leper.

When starting the Herbalife Program I had hope. I hoped that this would resolve my weight problems and I was keen to follow the program properly.

To my delight after 15 weeks I had lost 17kg, 3 dress sizes and a total of 40 cm of body fat which I have maintained for some months now ! During this time my acne has cleared up alot and I am not only looking great but feeling great. In fact I have more energy now than I have ever felt before.

With such great results I started experimenting with some of the other targeted Herbalife supplements and now since taking Herbalifeline I have no longer been getting Arthritic pain in my knees. Prior to this I would always know when the rain was coming as i would be in agony 2 days before the rain was due. The only problem with this now is that my washing usually gets caught out in the rain ! However this is a good thing !

I have also been on and off taking Tang Kuei which I have noticed a big difference in the way i get my monthly cycle. The months that I take Tang Kuei my period comes without warning, no symptoms.... the months that I dont take Tang Kuei I am hit with the usual symptoms...bloating, cramps, sore chest. By doing this I have begun to appreciate and feel the difference of "with Herbalife and without"

I am using now the Advanced Program, with Herbalifeline and Tang Kuei. I highly regard these products as the finest in the world and am now helping people also get results and feel the benefits.

For someone who is sceptical thats ok.... my only advice is you have to give something a go before you can make a judgement.... So have faith and goooooooo with Herbalife! It has changed my life in so many ways !!

Best wishes and love from Downunder

Parkinson's Success (1/15/2003)

Cathryn

As of 4 weeks ago my neighbor started on products. He is 72 yrs. old and has had Parkinson's for 6 yrs. now, is very thin due to weight loss from disease, and for the last several yrs has walked like he was 101 yrs. old and stooped over. While he expressed concern about the proteins (in Formula 1), he just decided to try them and in days he called me and said he was regular for the first time in Yrs. and in about a week my husband and I couldn't believe it - he was skipping around his yard. We always had to help him with getting his mail and garbage - not anymore! He looks decades younger! He's put a few lbs. back on by having 2 shakes a day. His voice I didnt recognize on the phone, he sounds so clear. He always had such a low soft gravelly voice. People at Church have really notice a change. His Program: Formula #1 Shake Mix (no #2 he was taking b-shots twice a week), #3 (Cell Activator), Herbal Aloe Drink (8 oz a day), THEN added Herbalifeline 1-3 times daily and RoseOx.

Good Luck

 

Fighting PMS and winning! (3/1/2003)

Suzanne Johnston - Charlotte, NC, USA

suzannefjohnston@yahoo.com

At 32 years old my PMS had been getting worse each year. I found myself reaching for that bottle of Midol more often, and I wasn't very happy about it. In fact, last x-mas day I even drove to a gas station to purchase a bottle - that's sad.

My second month on an Herbalife weight loss program I realized I wasn't reaching for the Midol, and the bottle is now in the trash! YAY Herbalife!

PMS & Migraines (5/1/2002)

Barbara Wolf

I suffered monthly with severe PMS and Migraine headaches that would put me out of commission 4 days in a row!

Then someone introduced me to * and my life has changed dramatically! I also take Cellular Nutrition, Xtra-Cal, HERBALIFELINE, and Tang Kuei and my husband thinks he has a new wife!

No woman has to suffer from the crazy side effects of hormone imbalance, just find the right combination of products and take them consistently!

 

PMS, Energy, Sport, Skin, Hair, Back Pain (8/19/2004)

Sarah Taylor - Launceston, Tasmania, Australia

stay7459@bigpond.net.au

I was introduced to the Herbalife products through the Business opportunity. Started for wellness and vitality and so many things happened!

Lost 3 kilos and went from a size 12-10 in 8.5 weeks! I have gone on to convert any excesses to lean muscle, I am now a size 8 and another kilo lighter.

Most noticeably I gained through the roof ENERGY, had more enthusiasm to enjoy my sport, and no longer have any muscle or joint pain after exercise. My resting Heart Rate is better than it has ever been...

I no longer suffer back pain from an old athletics injury, I have a lot clearer skin, stronger, healthier hair and nails, and haven't had a cold or cough since being on the products... Plus regularity is better considering it was once a week if that!

Thanks to Herbalife I feel 100% well and can expect the best from my body every day!

THANK GOODNESS FOR THESE PRODUCTS, Herbalife is WELLNESS FOR LIFE!!!

Breastfeeding (5/1/2002)

Barbara Falke - Rodgau, Germany

My second baby was born Feb.20, 2002, following a wonderful Herbalife pregnancy and 1-week recovery after a cesarean section.

I'm breastfeeding and using all products, i.e. 3-4 shakes using double recommended amount per day plus protein powder, F2 - F4, Thermo Complete, Thermo tea, Herbalifeline, Cell Activator, 2 protein bars, soy beans, lots of water with aloe concentrate and one balanced meal.

I have reduced all my pregnancy weight without effort and feel absolutely terrific. My belly today is firmer than it was before my very first pregnancy (even though I haven't had time to start exercising yet). My baby-girl is growing wonderfully and she sleeps 10 - 12 hours in one stretch every night. This is rare for babies who are only being breastfed. Herbalife is fantastic and I feel and look better today than in my mid-twenties (I'm turning 38 shortly).

I've also attached a picture of my baby Nora (who accompanies me to every Herbalife event) and me with Dr. Larry May at the Doctors' tour in Germany, April 2002.

 

Breastfeeding & Colon Removal Testimonial (5/1/2002)

Clinton Blais

Hi there. I had major surgery that removed about 6 inches of my colon and 9 inches of my bowel. I started taking Herbalife 2 weeks after my surgery and continued to breastfeed my 3 month old son. I noticed a major increase in the first few days!!! People thought I looked fantastic and couldn't believe that I had just had surgery.

I lost 15 lbs. and 15" in my first month. My son is now a whopping 20 lbs at 5 months of age and is as healthy as can be. He also likes the shakes better than baby formula. I don't hesitate to refer Herbalife to anyone.

Healthy Pregnancy and Nursing (12/29/2002)

Throughout my pregnancy I took Herbalife products Formula 1, Formula 2, Formula 3 and Xtra-cal.

The formula 1 shake – I took one per day or if I felt I needed an extra boost, I’d have a second shake. I did not suffer from any morning sickness nor suffered from bloating or swollen ankles, which tend to come up during the last couple of months. My doctors were really pleased with how my pregnancy was going. They said I was in better shape than some women ten years younger than me.

After a short labour, I had our son Luke. The hospital food was not the most appetizing and I was really pleased when Tony brought me in a couple of shakes to build my strength up again.

Throughout breast feeding, I was taking one or two shakes each day to keep up my energy levels as it is quite a draining thing to do. I also continued to take Formula 2 and 3. Whilst breast feeding I increased my water intake to between 2.5 and 3 litres of water on the advice of my midwife, to ensure I was producing plenty of milk for our baby. Luke thrived on it, putting on 4lb in four weeks!! Our midwife and health visitor were really pleased with his development.

To help me lose the extra couple of pounds I put on during pregnancy, I am back on 2 shakes per day and one small food meal. The protein bars come in very handy if I feel I need a little extra boost.

By taking the products, I had a really healthy pregnancy that allowed me to be working our Herbalife Business right up to the day before Luke was born. This was as well as running after our three-year old daughter Dominique.

The most important thing was that I had good health and energy throughout the nine months and had a beautiful, healthy baby boy.

Because of my experience of taking the Herbalife products during my pregnancy, I have 4 customers who have fallen pregnant and are still continuing to take the products as I did. They are all blooming!!

I also have 3 others who give their baby and toddlers our F1 shakes after their breakfasts.

Infertility and Pregnancy (5/16/2002)

Barbara Falke - Rodgau, Germany

4 years ago I was diagnosed with infertility. I then went through a hormone therapy and became pregnant following an in vitro fertilization. The pregnancy was okay, however, I suffered from diabetes, slept through almost seven months of my term, retained water, so that my feet grew by 3 sizes and delivered my beautiful baby girl (who is now 2 1/2) by caesarian section.

It was a horrible experience - I was in so much pain that i couldn't leave my bed for 3 days and it took me altogether about 2 months to recover. We were so grateful to have this child and never thought to have another one because of my condition.

18 months after my daughter was born I started the Herbalife weight loss program, lost 12 pounds in 6 weeks and got an incredible energy boost. I continued the program because I felt so good and then got pregnant again (without any medical support this time)!

It was an incredible surprise. I found out about the pregnancy at the beginning of the fourth month and continued taking the products throughout the entire term.

I had 3 - 4 shakes during the day, ate 3 regular meals plus small snacks, took formula 2 and 3 as recommended, tripled formula 4 (3x3 a day) to control the water and keep the skin smooth while my belly was growing. Furthermore I took Herbalifeline 3 x 3 a day, Cell Activator as recommended, vegACE, Q10, aloe to keep digestion going and Thermojetics tea once a day.

My second pregnancy was just the opposite of the first. I was energetic to no end so that I continued my life as if nothing was different. 6 - 7hours of sleep were sufficient and I worked until the day of delivery, which was again a c-section.

I had another beautiful baby girl and four hours after the c-section I had my first shake and was able to get out of bed only eight hours following the operation! After that recovery was smooth sailing - I could've left the hospital after 4 days but here in Germany we have the luxury to stay in hospital for a week following a caesarian. when I got home everything went right back to normal. I'm breastfeeding now taking about 3 shakes per day and I have just about lost all of the weight I've gained during pregnancy (about 24 pounds).

It's incredible and I'm very grateful for these products who have changed my life tremendously and have given us the greatest gift ever!!!!

[follow-up note from 5/16/2002]

My second baby was born Feb.20, 2002, following a wonderful Herbalife pregnancy and 1-week recovery after a cesarean section.

My Pregnancy Testimonial (5/1/2002)

Jennifer Robinson

I first started taking Herbalife’s products when I was in my last trimester of pregnancy, so I was basically tired, achy, and cranky all the time. I also had backaches, allergies, and indigestion, but because I was pregnant, I didn't want to take any medicine.

Within a few days of being on Herbalife’s Nutritional Program, not only was I feeling great, but I felt incredibly rested. I started waking up every day before the alarm – I had never even done that before I was pregnant! I also had no more backaches, no more allergies, no more indigestion, my skin even improved, and I had tons of energy!

The best part is that I lost 50 pounds in 3 months after having my baby! I love these products!

I basically took every product I could (which is all of them except Green, Beige, Yellow, or Gold - just because when you're pregnant you're trying to gain weight, not lose weight).

Here was my daily regimen:

Pregnancy Weight Gain Program:

Formula 1 – 1 to 3 times a day, as snacks

Formula 2 - 1 tablet, 3 times a day w/ meals

Formula 3 - 3 tablets, 3 times a day - you need all the absorption you can get!

* - 1 tablet, 3 times a day - need protein absorption when pregnant!

(**Herbal Complex) - 1 to 2 tablets, 3 times a day - a life saver that last month of pregnancy when the water weight tries to bloat you down!

LipoBond - 1 to 2 tablets, 3 times a day - no more pregnancy constipation!!!

Herbalifeline - 3 tablets, 3 times a day - Omega3 fatty acids make that little baby’s brain grow smart!!!

Joint Support - 1 to 2 tablets, 3 times a day -no more back, hip, knee, or ankle aches from carrying all that belly weight!

Herbal Aloe Juice - AT LEAST 4oz, 2 to 3 times a day - no more pregnancy indigestion, constipation, or nausea!

RoseOx - 1 tablet, 2 times a day

(**Rose Ox) - 1 tablet, 3 times a day - I had real bad allergies and took the (**Rose Ox) and RoseOx so that I wouldn't have to take any medicine - it worked!

That was my daily routine. And let me tell you, the difference between my pregnancy before being on Herbalife and then my pregnancy after being on Herbalife does not even compare! I will be on these products the rest of my life... ESPECIALLY my other future pregnancies. The #1 most important time you need THE BESTNUTRITION is when you are pregnant or nursing - and HERBALIFE has the BESTNUTRITIONAL PRODUCTS on the market! And I can give you the names of lots of other mothers out there who agree with me!

 

New Body with Herbalife (10/20/2003)

Bianca Tucker - Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

biancalt@optushome.com.au

Hi, my name is Bianca and before Herbalife, I had been trying to shed the weight I had put on from being pregnant with my son. I tried for months after giving birth, to go back to my pre-pregnancy weight and feeling good about myself. Nothing seemed to work, causing me to feel unhappy about my body, and not having the energy I needed to take care of my new baby.

Then I started on the Herbalife products using the Advanced Program and felt a difference within a week. I had loads more energy and was feeling fantastic.

In my first week I lost 2 kilo’s without trying. Since being on the products, I have lost a total of 17 kilo’s and have actually gone past my original goal weight of 60 kilo’s.

I now weigh 58 kilo’s, wear a size 8 and just love the way I look and feel.

 

Pregnancy & Nursing (8/15/2002)

Debra Bendt - Port Washington, Wisconsin, USA

When my husband & I first found out we were pregnant, we were ecstatic. It had been 6 years since our first child. But I was also a little skeptical because I was so sick with the first pregnancy (for the first 3 months - not on Herbalife yet). Well guess what? I was sicker with our second one and bedridden for the first 3½ months. I was throwing up at least every 45minutes. No exaggeration! I could not keep any food or water down. I had more trips to the doctor because of that than I have ever had before. I continued taking my products but adding Aloe Drink diluted with water. This helped with balancing the acids that were produced in my stomach. These products were incredible, because this is the only thing that would stay down.

I lost 9 pounds anyway. Not by choice - the doctor said it would have been much more if it wasn't for Herbalife products because I could not get enough calories in. But my doctor was so excited that the products would stay down. I went on to gain 32 pounds in the next 6 months and gave birth 2 weeks early to a 8lb 7oz and 22” baby girl. The doctors said they had never seen a stronger baby at birth like my little girl. I know that was Herbalife products! Her favorite flavor is ½ chocolate and ½ vanilla, that is what I drank for those 3 months!

The best part is I lost all my pregnancy weight with in 2 weeks after the birth. 32 pounds!! Yes, I was also nursing. I was not trying to lose weight. Nor was I on any accelerators such Thermo Complete or yellows.

The products I used while I was pregnant and nursing was Formula 1,Formula 2, Formula 3, (**Rose Ox), Rose Ox, Aloe drink, Xtra-Cal and (**Herbal Complex) only in the third trimester. I did not take my prenatal vitamins - they wouldn't stay down but our Formula 2 did!

 

Pregnancy and Nursing (9/16/2002)

Jen Millage - Wellington, New Zealand

jen@scnewzealand.com

I originally went on the Herbalife products 2 ½ years ago, for energy and good nutrition. I was working three jobs at the time and had three children.

I was tired and stressed with this taking a toll on my health: I had dermatitis, eczema, stomach problems and visits to my doctor started to become more frequent.

After a couple of days on the Herbalife products I found my energy had lifted and was even throughout the day - no more 3pm snoozy periods!

After a few more weeks I noticed my irritable bowel symptoms had started to clear up for the first time in my adult life.

My skin cleared up and became less sensitive. I felt great.

I got pregnant with my 4th child late last year and continued to take the products for good nutrition and energy.

I found the products magic for those days when I just did not know what I felt like - a formula one shake was perfect.

I was able to maintain my health and energy throughout the pregnancy, getting none of the colds and flu's that were going around.

Our baby boy was born 9 weeks ago - a beautiful 9lbs 13ozs (4.5kg) baby -and is already at the top of the baby growth charts. Totally breastfed, he has gained a steady 200-300gms per week since birth, including the first week, when most babies usually drop below their birth weight. I feel good knowing that our baby is getting the best nutrition possible.

I have recovered quickly and despite breastfeeding I have great energy every day and have almost regained my pre-birth figure without having to risk my milk supply by dieting!

Pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding can be one of the most taxing times on a woman’s body. I am so grateful for the Herbalife products and wish I had had them when I was having my other three girls.

 

Pregnancy benefits (8/8/2002)

Autumn McNew - Chambersburg, PA, USA

mcnew@comcast.net

Just wanted to share my story with everyone. I began taking Herbalife when I was 5 months pregnant.

Before Herbalife I was tired, had no energy and was very sick due to the pregnancy. I had miscarried right before becoming pregnant again, and was headed in the same direction, we feared, until Herbalife.

Immediately the first day taking basic nutrition I was feeling GREAT! I was able to eat regular food again, and after 5 months of tea and crackers that's a huge deal. But most of all I knew that I was getting, and still am, the right nutrition for me and my son, not to mention a ton of energy.

The rest of the 4 months went wonderful, only gaining about 25 lbs, and losing 41 lbs. so far in 4 months on Basic Nutrition, which I took while nursing.

I just began the Ultimate after finishing nursing, and have already lost8 lbs and 6 inches. We love these products. We love HERBALIFE!!

Autumn McNew, Mike McNew, Darien McNew, HERBALIFERS!!

pregnancy, back pain, cellulite (10/30/2003)

Stella Sarin - Sydney, Wentworthville, Australia

sarin123@ozemail.com.au

5 1/2 years ago I was three months pregnant, stressed and depressed working full-time in sales and suffering severe back pain. Doctors couldn't help me but suggested to quit my job and rest at home. I was forced to look for a work from home in order to support oncoming family and when Herbalife found me, I started using products just to improve nutrition through the pregnancy but I couldn't believe difference in my energy level within few days. Thanks to Tang Kuei, my back pain disappeared within 12 hours of taking 5 tablets all at once and never came back again.

I've lost 5kg of cellulite through the pregnancy, my skin problems started to clear up and I was down to my pre-pregnancy clothes in 3 days after delivery. My son Nicholas is perfectly healthy and happy 5 y.o. now, never gets tired and loves his shake (F1) and Herbal Aloe.

A little bit over 3 years now, I also managed to quit smoking (after 14 years of bad habit) since I started to use Rose-Ox on top of all of the products available in Australia, which I use now just to maintain good health and positive attitude. I am feeling 100% every single day and I love it.

Thanks to Herbalife, my life has changed completely and I feel like a new woman at the age of 33.

Recovery from Caesarian Section (11/4/2002)

Kathy Young - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA

skyhi7@kahala.net

I have been taking Herbalife products for 1 year and was breastfeeding my 18 month old son at the time. I started taking the basic nutrition plus (**Herbal Complex). I did not have a weight problem but I did lose 7 pounds in 8 days.

6 months after taking these products, I became pregnant w/my second child. I began using the Herbalife products as my prenatal because the ones prescribed by the doctor made me more nauseous than I already was.

As my pregnancy progressed it was clear that I had a condition called Placenta Previa where the Placenta covers over the Cervix so baby can't come through vaginally. My doctor told me that I would need to have a C-section to deliver baby and doctor schedule my c-section 4 weeks prior to my due date.

I was also borderline Gestational Diabetes which was immediately halted and reversed with the yellow tablets.

Because I knew that I would be having this surgery I decided to prep my body ahead of time because I wanted the quickest recovery possible. I was already using Formula 1, 2, 3 as my prenatal vitamins. I did not introduce the other targeted products until I was about 6 months pregnant due to immense nausea. At which point I began taking Xtra Cal, Herbalifeline, (**Rose Ox), RoseOx, Extreme C, (**Herbal Complex), & Aloe Juice. And took all tablets based on the maximum suggested usage on the labels.

After surgery and birth to a healthy 5 lb 13.3 oz baby boy, I was down in the nursery 5 hours later nursing and holding him. My recovery time was 1 week which is much shorter than the 8 week time frame they give you.

Currently, I am exclusively breastfeeding and I still take all of the same products with an occasional glass of tea when I need more energy. Baby is now a 3 month old BIG boy and you would never guess that he was born 4 weeks early because like his mom he is getting the best nutrition possible.

 

Shelley's Pregnancy Story (5/16/2002)

Shelley Nicol - Brandon, Manitoba, Canada

Hi! My name is Shelley Nicol and I’m from Brandon, Manitoba Canada.

Before Herbalife I was 25lbs. overweight, suffered from daily chronic headaches, frequent migraines, depression and irregular menstrual cycles which all added up to using fertility drugs to get pregnant with our first two children and suffering through two miserable pregnancies.

Our family life was controlled by my body’s ups and downs!!!

Within two weeks of being on the Herbalife Ultimate Program I lost 10lbs and went on to 20lbs in 6 weeks, which was great. The really awesome part is that within a week my daily chronic headaches were a thing of the past, I haven’t had a single migraine in the 11 months I’ve been on the products, my depression lifted more in the first 4 weeks on the products than it had in the previous 4 months and after 10 weeks on the products we got pregnant with our third child naturally. After a healthy pregnancy we gave birth on July 17th 2002 to a healthy baby boy.

Thank you Herbalife!

 

Psoriasis, diabetic, weight loss (2/4/2003)

nages sivanathan - Chadstone, Victoria, Australia

bouncingbody@optushome.com.au

telephone: +61398061228

My body weight started to go up rapidly from 73 Kg to 85 Kg within a period of 9 months.

I tried to control that rise by adopting to various diet control programs. With my diabetic condition and insulin injections weight management was tough.

I was introduced to Herbalife QuickStart program and during first month started to lose weight, lost 4 Kg first month. Felt fantastic with Herbalife products. Altogether lost 10Kg in 3 Months.

I have kept the weight off for the past 8 months. My insulin intake reduced to half. I am convinced that the Herbalife products are very good.

I started taking Herbalifeline, Aloe drink and showed a remarkable improvement on my skin and the psoriasis on my whole body was almost eleminated. The targeted products Rose ox and Xtra Cal tablets are keeping me fit and energetic all the time.

I am ever very thankful to Herbalife. I will continue to take Herbalife nutritional products for the rest of my life as all the essential nutritions and minerals are what we need to have a healthy life.

 

Rheumatoid Arthritis (3/4/2003)

Robert Thompson - Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

robert@festivalcentre.com.au

My body was invaded with rheumatoid arthritis in 2000 - a fiftieth birthday present! It progressively worsened. By July 2002 my ankles, knees, hands and shoulders were seizing up. Walking was difficult and so slow, holding onto things was impossible with no strength left - my body felt as though it was coated on the inside with lead. Thought I might be able to work from home - hence found Herbalife.

I started on the Advanced programme and felt an immediate lift in energy - that "lead lining" melted and suppleness began to return to my body. Within a month I was pain free.

I am now taking Tang Kuei, Herbalifeline, RoseOx, and by liberally putting the Aloe Gel on my psoriasis (a byproduct of the arthritis) it is also being defeated. Swelling has subsided and now I am up and literally running with Herbalife.

 

Shingles (4/11/2003)

Darrell Mettler - Santa Monica, California, USA

dmettler@adelphia.net

telephone: 310-392-3375

Shingles can really "hang you up the most" and they can be very painful, ask anyone who's had them. There's also a lot of inacurate information about shingles out there. For example, it's assumed by many professionals that a weakened immune system is part of the conditions necessary for shingles to occur. I told my dermatologist in no uncertain terms that a weakened immune system was NOT the cause for the sudden appearance of my shingles. He didn't like that! When I told him I hadn't had a cold, or the flu, or any such thing for more than a year and a half, he didn't want to believe it, and I sensed that he may have been questioning his medical school implanted knowledge of shingles. He said my case was "obviously not textbook."

I used 4 or 5 Tang Kuei Plus a day for the pain, took several Tang Kuei a day (in addition to everything else I normally take) just in case stress was causing the problem, and rubbed on generous amounts of Herbal Aloe Gel and Herbal Aloe Cream to help with the skin eruptions and itching, etc. I may still have the nerve pain for the next few months, but it doesn't look so bad any more. The dermatologist was really surprised that I could get along without his Rx.

 

Shingles Relief (7/23/2002)

Ann Sutton

I've found that the Herbal Aloe Drink helps to heal from the inside which is where the shingles virus lives and also the Herbal Body Wash is an amazing product for the outside. Also the herbal aloe drink can be used as a compress about 3 times a day applied to the shingles area. It really works well.. good luck.

 

 

Weight Loss & Psoriasis (9/16/2003)

Here is one of our customers story.

Maria Alderyecio - Bribie Island - Qld Australia

I am 53 years old and have been overweight for the past 23 years. I tried almost every diet around. I had lost faith in all diets and got bigger than ever. As a result of my weight gain I became very sick. I was going through a traumatic experience which resulted in severe depression which caused my psoriasis to badly flare up. It was so unbearably itchy that I would scratch my scalp until it bled which in turn led to loss of hair.

I could't get around very much - even the housework was a big chore for me. By visiting a medical specialist I was diagnosed as having sleep apnoea (this is a condition where I was unable to breath correctly when I slept and the fear was that I was not going to wake up in the morning). I was put on a machine so I could sleep without fear for 3 1/2 years. My blood tests showed that I had developed Diabetes and had high Cholestrol.

Then I had the most wonderful news of my daughter's pregnancy after 8 years of marriage. My doctor offered to help and introduced me to HERBALIFE. I decided to give it a go.

All this was 46 weeks ago. Since then I have lost 25.5 kg and 86 cm of body fat. I look and feel fantastic. My dress size has come down from 22 to 14. My Diabetes disappeared And Cholestrol normalised. I NO LONGER NEED THE MACHINE AND MASK AT NIGHT ! I am no longer tired.

I started on the Shapeup program and upgraded by adding Herbalifeline, Thermojetics Beverage, Herbal Aloe drink together with Herbal shampoo, conditioner and gel.My Psoriasis has almost cleared.

My whole quality of life has changed. I can't thank my doctor and HERBALIFE enough.Now I can live my life again and i will be A HERBALIFE HAPPY GRANDMOTHER FOR THE REST OF MY HEALTHY LIFE.

I lost 41lbs in three months using Formula 1, Formula 2, and Formula 3, and have kept the weight off for 18 months.

I am now on a maintenance program of Formula 1, Formula 2, Formula 3, (**Rose Ox) and Thermo Beverage.

Two years ago I had high blood pressure, high colesterol and a mild dose of Psoriasis. They have all cleared up.

I have also noticed that I sleep 2 hours less per day, I don't get sick any more, not even a head ache or a stomach upset and I don't sweat anymore.

My energy levels went through the roof and my skiing and golf have improved dramatically

 

Chronic Sinus infections (1/10/2005)

Tanis Humeny - Canada

humeny1@telus.net

Hi My name is Tanis

Since I have been on the products almost 1yr. I not only have lost some weight, but feel healthier and look younger.

I first noticed the energy and weight loss right away. But it was the not-so-noticeable health benefits of being on the products that impress me the most.

I have chronic sinus infections. When I get a cold it always turns into a sinus infection and therefore leads me to the Doctor's to get antibiotics. Not just sometimes but every time.

My first sinus infection came on in my third month on the products and I didn't even pay attention to the results of being on the products, until I realized that I not only got over the sickness in about a week, but I didn't need to go to the doctor's to get medication. Sure I used traditional methods of getting over a cold, but it didn't lead to antibiotics. I have since had 4 other sinus colds, and still haven't needed to go to the doctor for medication. Amazing!!!

Products I take

F1, F2, F3, Heralifeline, Mineral complex with "c", Canola oil, Cell Activator, Total Control, Florafire, Herbal Aloe, Nutri 9 and others for weight loss.

I know I have boosted my immune system. I have also lowered my cholesterol to good levels. (A family history)

I hope this helps anyone who needs to boost ther immune system against the so common cold. I still get sick but not nearly as bad and I recover much sooner and it keeps me out ot the Doctor's office.

Snoring & Sinus Infections (1/20/2003)

Gary Vozka - Rhinelander, WI, United States

gr8nutrition@hotmail.com

Hello Everyone,

We are Gary & Cindy Vozka from Wisconsin. We have a Snoring testimonial.

Our oldest daughter Amanda, (now 13) snored VERY LOUD. She had (noticed I said had) a problem snoring since she was about 6 years old. She also suffered from chronic sinus infections. Trip to the doctor about once every month for medication was not uncommoon. She also suffered from allergies & asthma. She took Rhinocort, Clariton, & Flonase to which nothing helped. She also suffered from Bladder Infections which was caused from the medication she was taking for her allergies and asthma.

About 2 years ago, after we became Independent Distibutors, we got her started on the (**Rose Ox), & RoseOx for her allergies. After about 3 weeks we noticed a change in her asthma. Her allergies also were starting to disappear. About 6 months ago we noticed that her snoring was NOT as loud. On top of that she is totally off of the Inhalers and Clariton tablets for allergies. She also LOVES the Cookies and Cream Formula 1. My wife and I also LOVE IT!

She still snores a little but NO WHERE NEAR as loud as she was before starting on the products. I know that if I get her to take the products faithfully EVERYDAY, her snoring will go away for good.

 

Stress, Depression, Weight loss, Sport (2/18/2004)

Tamara Scott - Crescent Head, NSW, Australia

tamarascott@bigpond.com

Before Herbalife I was tired, cranky and suffered from headaches. I had also been a yoyo dieter for over 20 years. I used to wake up at night in a panic and I was depressed during the day. I had left my job as a Flight Attendant after 17 years because of ill health. The doctors couldn't work out what was wrong with me. They decided my hormone levels were all-wrong and prescribed a cocktail of pills including hormone replacement, antidepressants, and sleeping pills.

I used Panadeine almost daily for headaches, and Nasal spray 2 or three times a day to clear my sinuses. I had not flown for 18 months when I found Herbalife, and things were no better.

I started on an Ultimate programme to lose a few extra kilos. The weight fell off and I felt an increase in energy immediately.

I soon added Herbalifeline, Tang Kuei, Rose Ox and Xtracal. After 4 months I put all my medication in the bin. I no longer needed it. I sleep through the night, the dark clouds have lifted, and no more blocked nose.

But the best parts is I lost 7 kilos in the first 6 weeks, and have kept the weight off for 18 months.

April 2003 I started running to use up some of my energy, and I ran my first half marathon in September of the same year. I now use the sports programme to give me focus and stamina for my sport. My children and husband have their mother and wife back, and I feel fantastic every day.

Thank You Herbalife!

Depression and Stress (9/1/2002)

Lisa Breedt - Pretoria, Gauteng, South Africa

lisab@worldonline.co.za

My name is Lisa Breedt. Herbalife found me when I was very stressed and depressed, working long hours and having very bad eating habits. I used to be ill every single month and spent thousands of rands on medical bills. I needed to improve my health and tried the Herbalife products (Protein mix, Fibre & Herb, Thermojetics beverage and Herbal Complex). Within 2 weeks I was a completely different person. I had so much energy and felt great. To my amazement my depression started to lift. I knew I was ill all the time because of bad nutrition, but I never knew that depression is a direct result of bad nutrition. I've been on the products for 18 months now and hardly ever see doctors anymore. I have my health and my life back. Thank you Herbalife.

I am using the Ultimate Program and Herbalifeline, (**Rose Ox) Plus, and a cup of Aloe Juice, with Rose Ox, and Cardio ToconOx.

 

The Way Life Should Be (5/18/2005)

Nan Elderkin - New York, USA

nelderkin@frontiernet.net

I woke up one morning back in 1994 unable to get out of bed. I went to the Doctor's to get checked out and they diagnosised me with the flu. However, my symptoms continued with increased pain and muscle fatigue, I started having trouble with my eye sight, my speech was slurred, I had trouble swallowing, headaches/migraines started and I started having trouble sleeping.

As the weeks went on I went through medical test after medical test with no answers or relief from my pain. I was sent to a Neurologist and his first impression was MS. I went through an MRI only to find out that it wasn't MS. I was relieved, but what did I have.

Depression set in and I thought I would never be able to enjoy my life again. I was then sent to another neurologist and that is when I was diagnosised with Fibromyalgia. We tried different medications which only gave me temporary relief. I had just graduated from college and started my career as an Occupational Therapist and missing time from work was impossible. However, I would miss at least 1 to 3 days of work a month only to be flat on my back in bed.

I didn't dare to do the things I enjoyed like hiking, swimming, camping, and even everyday activities like cleaning the house would put me into a flare up. People I worked with said they understood what I was going through, but behind my back they would say I was faking it.

Over the years the stress from my employer became too much, my health was deteriorating, so after 12 years as a therapist I quit my job.

However, two weeks before I quit I had found something wonderful. I was looking for a way to stay home and work. I came across The Online Business Systems and Herbalife. I called and started my own business. I started taking the products right away and in a week's time I felt better, my pain and fatigue was less. It has now been 8 weeks on the products and I haven't had a fibromyalgia flare up since April. I even started exercising and I haven't done that in a very long time. I lost 15 pounds and I feel like a new person. Thank you Herbalife.

I now take the following products.

1. Ultimate protein plus program

2. Herbalifeline

3. (**Rose Ox) Plus

4. Rose ox

6. Tang Kuei

7. (**Cellular Nutrition

9. Joint support

10. Lift off

Joint Pain (5/1/2002)

Mike Farrier

 

 

Bleeding Ulcer,

I have been a tree trimmer for 10 years and have a very bad back (chiropractor once a month usually). When i had a heavy day of climbing I would be moving very slowly the next day it really stresses your knees, ankles, and back.

I started taking the Arch and Joint support and within one week I was not in pain even in the mornings (that was the worst pain time for me)

I also have/had a Bleeding ulcer that had me on 3 different medications and literally watching what I ate because of the gut pains and severe gas attacks.

I started an ultimate program to lose a few pounds and lost 18 pounds in3 weeks and then added Herbal aloe and within 1 1/2 weeks I was no longer taking any ulcer medication.

I was on the strongest dose of PREVACID twice a day and am very happy to be off it and the other medications used to battle its side effects.

 

Plantar Warts (11/4/2002)

Allison Brown - Tappen, British Columbia, Canada

cec@shuswap.net

I have been dealing with plantar warts on the soles of my feet for two years now. It started out as just a few, from a public pool change room, and they progressed to approximately one dozen per foot. I had tried everything, from over-the-counter products, to going to my doctor every week to get them scraped and burnt off. One doctor that I saw about them, also worked at a large wart clinic in Vancouver, and he couldn't believe how bad my feet were. Of course that made me feel horrible. Anyway, nothing seemed to work, if they were burnt off, they came back. So I figured I was just going to have to live with them, as I didn't know what else to do, or try. Exactly two weeks ago, I started on the Herbalife products (Ultimate Green Program), and I have seen amazing results with my feet, they are 90% cleared up now! Something I never thought could happen. Herbalife has also boosted my energy, leveled out my moods, and I have lost 5 lbs. Just goes to show how important cellular nutrition really is.
