Price Alone? What about Quality?

Price Alone?  What about Quality?

by Dick Hunt. March 7th, 2013.

Years ago, in the Town of Stettler, Alberta a very honest and successful business man operated a Men’s and Boy’s Wear store on the Main street. I well remember a sign in a prominent position in his store which said, ‘There is hardly anything  available that cannot be made poorer and sold a lot cheaper and the person who looks at the price alone is fair game for such Cheater’s.” A few years ago, at the outfall of the  Greater Vancouver Sewage Treatment system, the screen at the end of the large Pipe became plugged and a crew was dispatched to deal with the problem.  It was quickly discovered that what plugged the screen was undissolved food supplement tablets which had not only passed through peoples digestive systems but also through the normally effective Sewage Treatment system which was designed to break down and disolve the sewage.  The people who had bought Food supplements solely on the basis of price and advertising were cheated into ingesting junk that they were trusting to keep them healthy.

One way to test food supplements is to drop the tablets in a glass of water and time the interval until the supplements dissolve.  The first time I saw that demonstrated was in the home of friends in Nanaimo.  The Lady of the house put water in four glasses and then placed three Multi Vitamin – Multi Mineral tablets from three different popular brands of over the counter tablets  in three of the glasses. Then she asked me to record the time.  She then dropped a Shaklee Vita Lea multi in the fourth glass. Twelve minutes went by.  The Shaklee product was fully disolved. None of the other three showed any sign of disolving. 

An hour later it was time for Ruth and me to catch our ferry. Our friend asked us to come out to the lawn so she could empty the four glasses at the edge of the flower border. Still none of the three had dissolved at all.  The Shaklee one had fully dissolved.  She took pictures of the area. About two weeks passed and she sent us another picture  The three had not yet dissolved and were easy to spot in the picture. In the area where the Shaklee Multi  was poured out, the rabbits had eaten the grass right down to the roots, which seems to say that rabbits are smarter than most shoppers in food supplement displays. 

The first Shaklee Multi Vitamin- Multi Mineral Tablets were developed in 1915 by Dr. Forrest C. Shaklee and dispensed to his Chiropractic patients with great success to provide good health for his clients. Since then Shaklee Corporation has never looked back, has never ceased to carry out deeply Scientific Research to produce ever more effective, safe and fully guaranteed Food Based Supplements, fully Biodegradable cleaning products (Green from the Beginning and much less costly than the competition), Personal Care products, hair care products etc. and now a new line of Weight loss products clinically proven to bring users weight down to their desired level in 90 days and in the next 90 days show them how to maintain that standard and all as you enjoy the great health and energy that is the result.  In the 35 years since Ruth and I discovered Shaklee products we have never once been dissapointed with any product or service provided by this very honest and generous Company. More costly?  That is rubbish.  Every Shaklee product works as the company guarantees and is fully guaranteed or your money back. The Proof of the Pudding is certainly in the eating.

How do things get in such a bad state?

How do things get in such a bad state?
by Dick Hunt, Saturday August 4th, 2012. <dhunt57@shaw.ca>
A partial answer is; A bit At A Time.  Today one of my Daughter’s  had car trouble on a very crowded and busy highway.  Her transmission (standard)  failed. Fortunately, she was able to call BCAA, get out of the car, get the location of a reliable Repair shop and have the car towed there. Two men in two separate cars stopped and pushed the car off the road.  She phoned her sister who sent her son to pick her up and take her to my birthday lunch, which she co-hosted. The car didn’t suddenly break down. It took 119,000 km.  to do it.

When the paint peels off our houses, cupboards, cars etc., it doesn’t happen quickly. It takes time.  When our clothes get shabby and threadbare, we know it is the ravages of time and use that is the cause.  Simillarly, when we “get sick”, it is normally not that we go suddenly from well to sick; it takes time for dis-ease to bring us to a stop, even when we are exposed to  infectious diseases.  Our immune systems are constantly under attack from thousands of toxins and poisons and we need to do all in our power to build them up so they can fight the dangers to which the cells (trillions) in our bodies are constantly exposed. That is a major way in which we can help prevent illness from putting us out of condition.  It is our ‘built in’ maintenance system to keep us functioning, like maintenance on the machines that so  completely control our lifestyles.  It would be great if we could trust our food choices to provide us with all the essential nutrition necessary to nourish all the trillions of cells in every part of our bodies.  But without the opportunity for most people in the world to grow our own foods, it is very difficult to be aware of what is in most of the foods which we purchase.  Many are spoiled by additives  and in many other ways and lack many essential nutrients as well. Enter Shaklee Corporation, now in, business since 1956 in the U.S. and since 1976 in Canada.  Ruth and I joined as Members in 1978.
Shaklee Corporation has worked with a world renowned Japanese Immunologist, Dr. Yasuhiko Kojima who has spent forty years developing a product called Interferon, made from plants, which aids our bodies in producing naturally the Interferon needed to protect us from every enemy to our health and also greatly increases our bodies’ capacity to produce white blood cells which rush to the protection of our health from everything that invades our bodies. Shaklee has exclusive patent rights to the product, called “Nutriferon”.  It is a marvellous help for people who want to avoid illness, using it every day. Shaklee believes fervently in helping people of every age to maintain their health, rather than get “fixed” after they get sick. All Shaklee products are targeted to provide health to people and to the environment. I use all the nutritional products relevant to male health, I am not on any medical prescriptions and at the age of 92 I have recently had a full physical examination, including all blood work and have been pronounced in perfect health by my Doctor.

I am able to maintain healthy weight, excercise regularly, sleep well, have abundant energy, visit my wife, (Alzheimer’s) write many stories and articles on my Computer, have amazing memory recall. I share them with many people on the Internet, maintain and “feed” my Blog.              https://57dickhunt.wordpress.com/

I give all the Glory to God who has given me every gift to share for the good of the people in my family, my friends, and those who I meet along the way. My Faith in the living God in Christ our Saviour is the best gift of all. Shaklee Products are  major gifts that I have to share, because healthy people are much more effective in doing what is required to be great citizens. One of the greatest blessings with Shaklee is that the products are easily available to anyone, provide not only great health and a clean environment but by sharing them freely, provide a very significant income for anyone, from their homes, with a  very small  investment. Ask me.

My Observations on How Poor Health Occurs

My Observations How Poor Health Occurs.
by Dick Hunt, , May 6th, 2012.

First thing for most people to do who want to lose weight is to feed your body what it needs, to care for all your trillions of cells.  If you are seriously lacking in Essential nutrition, your appetite will not be satisfied no matter how much you eat. Listen to your body. If you still feel hungry after a big meal, you have a serious nutritional need and the lack will not be satisfied by just eating all the stuff you normally eat. Failing to take your food intake seriously will simply result in frustration, you will continue to pile on the pounds (kilograms) and you could be a disaster case. Being overweight will contribute  to a myriad of illnesses; notably Heart Disease, Diabetes and Cancer.

Last week I was able to attend a Retired Clergy and Spouses Luncheon Meeting in a Church hall in South Surrey. There were 50 people there, and it was announced that I was the eldest person present.  Many of the group were friends of mine and I have known some of them for nearly 60 years. My impression of the general health of many of them was that I was  in notably better health than many. I put that down to my constant reliance on high quality Nutritional Supplements every day for the past 34 years. Before I discovered Shaklee Corporation, the developer, maker and most reliable source of these products, I had been searching without success for good supplements in the market place. As a result, I was stricken with a Virus Infection in my right ear. In quick succession it destroyed both my hearing and my balance mechanism  in that ear. I have been afflicted by that difficulty for 44 years. I live with it daily.

I am virtually certain that had I had access to Shaklee Nutrition prior to 44 years ago, I would still have my hearing and balance in my right ear. The reason I use a walker to get around is that I have to use it to maintain my balance at all times. My blood pressure is always perfect, my heart beat is tops, my lungs function well,  I rarely have so much as a little sniffle, I sleep very well, I have good energy, my cholesterol is in great balance. And I am on no oral prescription medications. Nor is my wife, who in spite of her Alzheimer’s of 14 years duration is otherwise physically healthy and on no prescription meds. We are both nearing our 92nd birthdays and our 68th Anniversary. I still see that she gets her nutritional care each day and take her for a long walk as we visit.  And yes, she always knows me and the sparks of Romance  still fly between us.

I also have excellent memory recall and as was announced at last weeks luncheon, I write several new stories each week. My subjects are varied but I do not write fiction or for entertainment. I write of my experiences as a Cattle Rancher in my youth, as a member of the R.C.A.F. for four years during the war and  my work in Radio Technology, my work as a carpenter builder and cabinet maker, and of Christian Ministry, first as a Lay Minister for 4 years and then    in Ordained Ministry for 57 years. I retired in 1985 but until recently have been making myself available to assist and Minister wherever there is need and I am invited. I read voraciously, share my stories widely by Internet, enjoy life tremendously and learn something new and exciting every day.  And I give all the Glory to God who keeps me healthy and hungry in my efforts to share the Good News of the Faith with all the people with whom I am  in contact.
