In 1997 I had a knee injury at work that put me on crutches for 7 months. With the inactivity, I gained 40-50 lbs. I already had many years of chronic sinus problems: monthly bouts of sinusitis, frequent infections, sinus headaches and constant congestion or runny nose, PLUS I had numerous allergies that seemed to bother me constantly. Suddenly I started having difficulty breathing...just getting a full breath became problematic for me. Doctor's diagnosis - adult onset Asthma, due primarily to a large and rapid weight gain from an incapacitating knee injury. Over the next few months, I was given a series of steroid medications and inhalers to try to find the best relief: asthmacort, albuterol, beconase, ventolin - all of which gave me some relief, but had horrid side-effects. I reached the point where I was using an inhaler 3-4 times a day just to be able to breathe for a few hours.
When I started Herbalife's Ultimate program for weight loss, added Herbal Aloe Drink for digestive health, and Schizandra Plus for overall health, I noticed after a few days that I didn't have to take the inhaler as much and I could breathe easier for longer periods of time. Within a month I was completely off the inhaler and other sinus and allergy medications I'd been on forever. Now, almost four years later, I've only had 3 asthma attacks (triggered by others' smoking) - instead of 3 daily! - and continue to be medication free! (And, I moved to
After just three months of being on the ultimate green program and taking Schizandra Plus, allergy season hit and, although, I was not being bothered as much as usual, I still had some symptoms.
I then added the Rose Ox twice a day and began a Vitamin C regimen. I am glad to say the symptoms are under control in just one month!
The 32 lbs. I lost and the energy I now have are nothing to be forgotten either. Herbalife is great!
Five years ago I was diagnosed with an allergy to mould. I had 5 sinus infections that summer (working in office buildings has LOTS of down sides!). I resolved myself to having to take Claritin D every day from March through November until I found Herbalife.
I now take a Schizandra in the morning and one at night. I also take RoseOx with my dinner meal.
I no longer have any allergy problems or sinus discomfort and I save money because with no prescription coverage the Claritin would cost almost a $100 a month.
Before Herbalife Greg Hickey suffered from allergies, after a skin test they determined that he was allergic to 64 of the 75 allergens. He was prescribed shots which he took for 1 1/2 years with no relief. He never left home without the paper towels, because he was also allergic to tissues!
It was pretty miserable for him to constantly have a running nose, sneezing all the time and watering eyes. I couldn't take him anywhere.
Then we found Herbalife, we weren't thinking allergy relief, just weight loss, we both needed it, but to our surprise, about a month on the products, using the Ultimate Program, NRG & Schizandra, Greg could hardly believe it - his runny nose, sneezing and watering eyes were gone!
At first we just thought it was one of those extremely rare days, but it continued on and now he is allergy free no matter what time of year it is!
Prior to being introduced to the Herbalife products my life was a nightmare. First of all, I was sleeping 12 - 14 hours a day; I had extreme fatigue that disabled me from working in construction, my profession at the time. The list of ailments included: sore joints, aches and pains, dizziness, blurred vision, digestive problems, Candida, frequent colds and flu's, and frequent outbreaks of rashes.
Everyday for two years I felt like I had the flu: very achy, stiffness, and no energy. These flu-like symptoms sometimes would last 2 hours to all day.
Food allergies were also a big problem. I was allergic to 20 foods that I know of for sure. Being restricted in what I could eat caused me to lose weight. I'm 5'8" tall and fell to 120 lbs!
Four days on the Herbalife products, I could fell the difference in stamina and energy! Weeks went by and my body kept responding to all the herbs and great nutrition! Soon I was introducing a wide variety of foods back into my diet with no reactions. I gained 15 pounds my first month! It was amazing how easy this was to follow. My digestion and Candida subsided, and rashes no longer appeared. Today I have no food allergies, Energy keeps getting better and better, and colds and flu's are a thing of the past. To date I've gained 25 needed pounds, and I've got tons of energy! These products have changed my life. These are incredible!! Thank you Mark Hughes!

When my son Tim was 3years 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
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.Sheila Mundy

I had allergies so bad that I was almost house bound. I had 4 inhalers (2 were for emergency use), 2 prescription allergy medications, and an anti-depressant!
I was allergic to almost everything except my own skin and my own hair! Thank the Lord, I wasn't! I was allergic to almost anything with a fragrance, such as shampoo, conditioner, hair spray (going to the beauty shop was almost out of the question!), soaps of any kind, body washes, body lotions, deodorants (I had to alternate between 3 different kinds), moisturizers.
Then we go to make-up, eye liner, mascara (they didn't have much of a fragrance, but they were close to my eyes and that created a problem!) I even tried the hypo-allergenic skin care and my daughter loved it each time I tried something new in my quest to "find something" that would work for me--as she was the happy recipient of each thing that "didn't work"!
Then we go to anything chemical that you would use for cleaning your home, bathroom cleaners, kitchen cleaners, laundry soaps/powders, dryer sheets/softeners, Clorox, Draino, Pledge, Lysol to name a few.
Then there was house plants, dust, mildew, animals, pollen, grasses, budding trees, flowers, you get the picture!!
I couldn't go to the store very often as you know what they have at the store! Perfumes, candles, potpourri and all of the items mentioned above, but the worst was someone who had "marinated in their perfume or cologne"! I couldn't visit very many people due to cats, dogs, flowering plants, fragrances, etc., I even had trouble trying to visit someone in the hospital and we won't mentioned "being" a patient myself in hospital!
Have you ever driven down the road behind a vehicle that emitted fumes? Guess what it did to me!!
It would be like I had the flu most of the time, sick and tired.
Then there was the laryngitis, coughing, runny nose, headache, red eyes and itchy eyes, and a lot of trouble breathing and this was "every day"! The whites of my eyes were red most of the time, like I had been on a "toot" or something, and my face was puffy! I also had a "rash" on my eyelids, in my ears, behind my left ear and at the nape of my neck that went from being "beet red" to just looking nasty - it itched and I couldn't get rid of it. I sometimes got sores in my mouth and nose.
What a life! I have been on all kinds of prescription creams, over the counter medicated creams, antibiotics, cortisone creams, pills (steroids), shots, inhalers, breathing exercises--but to no avail, I was either allergic to it or it didn't work! I was sick and tired of being sick and tired!
My husband, Allan, has a deteriorating disc in the back of his neck and the Chiropractor told him that he would no longer work on him as he didn't know what was holding Allan's head up.
Allan would go through a bottle of Ibuprofen in a week's time because of the pain he was in--you know what that does for the blood!?!
Then along came Herbalife!
We started out to lose some weight, and went on the Ultimate Program only. Much to our surprise, we both felt a difference health-wise the very first day on the products! Who would think?
The results that we have are astonishing to us! I no longer am on any of my prescription medications or inhalers and Allan has not taken a single Ibuprofen since we started on the products!! Absolutely Amazing! Products that will do what they say they will, and in "This Day and Age"!!
We both got our lives back!! I am no longer house bound, and I can be around the things that would have put me into an allergic reaction before Herbalife!
On top of all of this wonderful news, Allan has lost 26 lbs and 28 inches - he has gone from a size 42 waist to a size 38!! I have lost 15 lbs. and 21.5 inches and have gone from a size 16 dress to a size 14 dress!!
We thank the Lord every day that He allowed us to find Herbalife!!
Many thanks, Joyce

Me and my woman Kirsten started on the products in August 2002. Basically we wanted to use the products to improve our fencing. That worked better than we expected.
The big bonus although was that Kirsten noticed that she could be around dogs without difficulties to breathe. She has been allergic to dogs all her life and after only half a year with Herbalife, she has now decided to get dogs!!! Herbalife products really are life changing!!
P.S. We have been using F1 two times a day. F2, F3, F4, Nutrition active, Herbalifeline three times a day. RoseOx once a day.

I have always tried to stay as fit as possible. However, as I passed through the 50's & entered the 60's I was losing the battle. Then I was introduced to Herbalife and it changed my life.My energy immediately went up, my weight went down (20lbs) and I no longer take cholesterol or allergy medications. My springtime allergies were very bad. I just returned from a bike ride in
I nearly died about 8 years ago from my life-long chronic asthma, pneumonia and being 70 pounds overweight. I also suffered from a degenerative back disease. This was putting about 700 pounds of pressure on my back and leaving me in constant, extreme pain. The doctor told me I had to take the weight off if I wanted to stay alive.
I tried everything starting with Nutri-systems. It cost me over $2,000.I lost 60 pounds and immediately gained back 80 pounds - bad investment $2000 to gain 20 pounds. The food did not provide the proper nutrition and as soon as I stopped eating their food I gained it all back. Not only that, the food tasted like cardboard. I tried over 13 other programs such as Slim Fast, Shaklee, Amway, NuSkin, and many other so called diets, including exercise, but nothing worked. I would lose some and than gain it back plus more. I was so frustrated.
I was about ready to give up and then I heard about Herbalife. The Herbalife distributor explained that the program was 100% natural, 100% safe and 100% guaranteed and that I had nothing to lose but my weight. He said that it contained all the nutrition by body needed on a daily basis. He then told me that many people who were taking this nutritional program eventually were off their asthma medication.
Needless to say, I was sceptical, but really had no alternative. I got on the program and lost 28 pounds in 30 days, 60 pounds in 3 months and a total of 70 pounds.
The best part was shortly after my first month on the program I decreased my asthma and allergy medication then finally stopped the medication totally. That was over 8 years ago. I am 62 years old, my asthma is almost non-existent, I no longer suffer from allergies, have lots of ENERGY...and I FEEL GREAT!

I only have one working kidney, the other was seriously damaged when I was sixteen by infection and I have suffered with urinary infections all my life as a consequence. Since starting on the Herbalife products I have had no infections to date! (Now 5 years). Initially I lost a stone in weight over three weeks and I have gone on to lose another half stone in weight. I have no dietary restrictions at all; I have been called a human dustbin! I suffer with Hay Fever every year and have always had problems with drugs to control it as they all make me drowsy. I often had to wear a filter mask to reduce the symptoms when working in the garden. Since starting on Herbalife my symptoms were reduced but I found that a combination of one Schizandra and two NRG tablets controlled my symptoms completely for up to four hours, another two NRG tablets controlled it again for four hours and so on. So I could control my Hay Fever over a day completely withonly minor discomfort when the tablet's effect wore off.I take F1, F2, Thermojetics beverage, Schizandra, Herbalifeline, Male Factor 1000, NRG and now, Cell Activator; sometimes I take 2 F1 shakes if I need to drop a few pounds due to eating excess! If I get a cold (infrequently now) I take RoseOx once a day and Schizandra twice a day and large quantities of Vitamin C in the form of powder obtained from my nearby Health Food Shop (two teaspoonfuls in a glass of warm water morning and evening). My energy levels now are such that where I used to be completely exhausted for anything up to three days after mixing concrete for a day; I can now recover completely by next day provided I
