Commander Mark Kelly & Vitalizer in Space!

On May 16, 2011, Commander Mark Kelly had an historic flight on the Space Shuttle Endeavor’s last flight.  He has had a long and diverse career.  In 1987 he became a naval aviator and made two deployments  to the Persian Gulf on the aircraft carrier Midway, flying 39 combat missions in Operation Desert Storm.   Captain Kelly attended the U.S. Naval Test Pilot School from June 1993 to June 1994. Logging more than 5,000 hours in more than 50 different aircraft, he has over 375 carrier landings.

Commander Kelly’s first mission to space was in December 2001 on the Space Shuttle Endeavor.  His final mission was again on Endeavor’s last mission.  It was a successful mission with the crew installing the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) to the ISS. AMS is a 15,000-lb cosmic particle detector that was installed on the outside of the space station. Its experiments will help researchers study the formation of the universe and search for evidence of dark matter and antimatter.  Sounds really cool to me!

Commander Mark Kelly at Shaklee Global Conference

On August 12, 2011, Commander Kelly took the stage at Shaklee’s Global Conference in Washington, D.C..  We were all captivated by his time with us, talking about his career and space travels as well as his marriage to U.S. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.  Inspired by his courage and determination, Mark reminded us that persistence and practice are the way to reach our goals.

While out in space as well as on earth, Mark is a user of Shaklee Supplements!  He learned about the Shaklee products when he joined the Space Program.  Since 1993, Shaklee has been providing NASA with a customized re-hydration beverage for use by Shuttle astronauts in 1993 and its use continues today.   As you can see from the image, Mark takes his Shaklee Supplements seriously, by taking them into space with him on his missions!

Simple Changes Make a Big Difference

Life today is a risky business when it comes to drinking water and food.  As a person who believes in and takes natural supplements, I am always amused when people tell me that they will not take anything that their doctor has not prescribed.  Little do they know about all the chemicals (most untested for human toxicity) and drugs that lurk in our food, water and air.  We are “taking” things not prescribed by doctors all the time just by drinking water and eating our food and don’t even think a thing about it.

There have been dramatic changes in the our food supply as well as our eating habits that are causing equally dramatic changes in our health.  While we are using more pesticides and herbicides along with genetic manipulation of crops, the nutritional of our food has decreased since the 1950’s. Crops are picked before they are ripe, lowering the nutritional potential of the fruits and vegetables.

Our drinking water is the source a myriad of chemicals including prescription drugs, industrial pollutants, agricultural runoff  and fertilizers.   Now 20% of the lead exposure we get on a daily basis, including bottled water.   Using filtered water is sensible and a healthier way to get the much needed hydration we need daily.

So think carefully the next time you turn your nose up at the idea of taking a natural supplement, remember all the chemicals you are “taking” because of poor quality drinking water  and our food sources.  Do something good for yourself.  Make some simple changes in your food, water and supplementation to have a healthier life.

Use  filtered water such as from Get Clean Water from Shaklee since it filters 99% of the lead from water along with many agricultural and industrial pollutants.  Purchase organic foods from local growers.  Talk with the grower if possible to establish how they grow their crops, what pest control methods they choose and how they handle the food once it is picked.  Avoid processed and fast foods because of preservatives, fat content and sodium levels.

Increase your exercise each day, walk or jog in your neighborhood, use the Wii Fit program at home, go to a gym or local fitness center or take classes in dance.  Eat well and use good natural supplements.  I always recommend Shaklee supplements since they are known for being safe and contaminate free.   In my “Supplements to Avoid” post on August 22nd, I sited Dr Jamie McManus explaining why Shaklee supplements are safe.

Simple Changes Make a Big Difference every day of your life.  When you change the way you look at things the things you look at change!  Eat good healthy food, exercise daily, drink filtered drinking water, and supplement wisely! Stay Healthy!! Elise

CDC’s New Indoor Air Policy

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a policy on indoor air policy for all its buildings whether owned, leased or rented.  According to the CDC:  “This policy establishes guidance and procedures to protect and maintain safe indoor environmental quality (IEQ) and guidelines for reporting and investigating complaints. This policy applies to all CDC workers (employees, contractors, guest researchers, etc.) at all CDC facilities, both leased and owned, and all CDC work areas including animal facilities.”

The CDC Policy further states:  “CDC will ensure that products used in the workplace, such as soaps, cleaning products, paints, etc. are safe and odor-free or emit low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to the fullest extent feasible. Only Green Cleaning Products shall be specified and used within CDC facilities and leased spaces unless otherwise approved by the Office of Health and Safety.”

The CDC Indoor Environmental Quality also has rules for personal fragrances and more.  The policy includes a list of Non-Permissible Products:

“Non-Permissible Products:  Scented or fragranced products are prohibited at all times in all interior space owned, rented, or leased by CDC. This includes the use of: Incense, candles, or reed diffusers; Fragrance-emitting devices of any kind;  Wall-mounted devices, similar to fragrance-emitting devices, that operate automatically or by pushing a button to dispense deodorizers or disinfectants;   Potpourri;  Plug-in or spray air fresheners;  Urinal or toilet blocks;  Other fragranced deodorizer/re-odorizer products.

Personal care products (e.g. colognes, perfumes, essential oils, scented skin and hair products) should not be applied at or near actual workstations, restrooms, or anywhere in CDC owned or leased buildings.

In addition, CDC encourages employees to be as fragrance-free as possible when they arrive in the workplace. Fragrance is not appropriate for a professional work environment, and the use of some products with fragrance may be detrimental to the health of workers with chemical sensitivities, allergies, asthma, and chronic headaches/migraines.”

As you can see, Green Cleaning Products, Natural and Organic Hair Care Products, Shower Gels and Body Lotions, Skin Care Products,  Laundry Products and Daily Personal Products are the options available to comply with the new policy.  The company that was the first Company in the World to be Climate Neutral Certified has the products you need.  Stay Well!  Elise
