While earning my Master’s in Guidance Counseling I worked with a Crisis Pregnancy Center doing Motivational and Educational speaking in the area of Abstinence Education in the Palm Beach County Schools. After receiving my Master’s degree I started work in the Palm Beach School District for three years as a Guidance Counselor before moving up to Central Florida with Becky and my and oldest son to work in the insurance business with his father.

Here Is Our Story:
In the fall of 2009 I got sick, so sick that i was in bed for two weeks straight. I lost 30lbs in a matter of weeks. Not understanding what what going on, we had MRI’s, CAT scans, and nothing was showing up. I even went to the emergency room after the first week and they diagnosed it as a pinched nerve. After going to the Dr. a week later they admitted me into the hospital with my left shoulder area swelling. The surgeon decided to do surgery at 9pm, to drain an abscess that had formed under my muscle. The abscess was as large as a small football, and it looked like an octopus with tentacles everywhere. In fact it was so large it was pushing my larnex over. After three weeks in the hospital, I had a long road of 12 weeks of antibiotics, and 60 sessions in a hyperbaric chamber to heal my infected bone, blood infection, lung infection (bacteria from hospital).
After I got sick, Becky and I decided we needed to take a good look at how we were supplementing our diets. We ate very clean, we watched what we ate, we exercised, we were in great health, but that still didn’t matter, I got sick, something entered my body even though I was healthy. In fact the Dr.’s said, if I were not in as good as health as I was, I would of been dead! He.. the Hematologist said I should of be DEAD!
Well this made us think a lot harder on what was going into our bodies. We looked at many different companies that sold supplements, and we blessed up with Shaklee.
There were many reasons why, but one of the biggest influences was The Land Mark Study that sh owed real science, real studies that people that were on Shaklee were healthier. Now this isn’t just a landmark study, it is PERSONAL.. I am happy to say that I am healthier than I have ever been. My immune system is stronger, I have more energy, my lean muscle is back and I am feeling great. In the last two years I have not even had a Dr.’s appointment.
I have posted a video of the nurse changing my bandages. God is good, and He gives our bodies ways to heal and get healthy. We jut have to put the right things in. Shaklee and the people involved with my healing have been an answer to all my prayers.
God Healed Me.. Shaklee has kept me out of the hospital!
