Works for Me Wednesday: The Essentials (& Giveaway)

What is "essential" to your life?  One of the essentials for me is good health.  When I take care of myself I can do all the things I want to.  I can go on fun adventures with my husband and play hard with my kid.  I don't have to worry about missing fun parties or trips because I am sick.  I don't have to suffer through miserable nights of sore throats, coughing and runny noses (yes, I'm talking about myself, not my son).

About 4 years ago, I was in a downward spiral of life debilitating allergies and constantly giving up on activities where I had no energy.  I hated being sick ALL the time.  It was time for a change!

That's when I was introduced to Usana Health Sciences and the Essentials.  I actually never took supplements before, but I was so exhausted from being sick that I decided to try them.  At the time I was suffering from an ongoing cold/allergy problem I had been having for a few weeks.  Within one week of taking the Essentials I had clear sinuses with no hint of my cold.  I was FREE!  It's been 4 years and I can count on one hand the times I've had cold symptoms.  Not only that I didn't have my allergy problems anymore.  I have never felt better in all my life and I can now do all those things I want to do.

What makes The Essentials a vital part of my good health?  Well, they fight off free radicals in our toxic environment and help to maintain "nutritional support for cardiovascular function, optimal vision, a sound immune system and efficient energy for metabolism."  You can read more about the Usana difference.

Whether you are "sick" or not, it's time to take a look at how you are giving yourself the gift of health.  I encourage you to take this brief Health Assessment and discover what you can do to have better health.
