I want to share with you why I m so passionate about this Shaklee, about the company, the standards and philosophy.
Dr. Forrest C. Shaklee born in 1894, diagnosed with tuberculosis from birth. Doctor predicted he wouldn’t live past 8 years.
The family moved from the soot and smoke of the Carlisle coal mines to northern Iowa. They believed the only treatment for tuberculosis was good food, fresh air, and lots of rest.
Shaklee was influenced by Bernarr MacFadden’s teaching that “drugs often mask the symptom, without curing the disease.”.
From his finding by years of observing nature, he wanted to treat people on a natural basis.
While at Palmer School of Chiropractic he observe the patients who are undernourished and overfed and he believed poor nutrition contribute cause of disease.
He became more interested in the field of nutrition.
In his search for the “life force” in food, in 1915 Dr. Forrest C. Shaklee set out to formulate “Shaklee’s Vitalized Minerals” which later presented as “vitamins”.
In 1956, the Shaklee Company was born.
Every potential customer would have to be educated before he would become a customer.
Dr. Shaklee told his sons, “We’ll teach some and they’ll teach others”.
The rest is history.
When everybody else was celebrating plastic and synthetic materials, Shaklee turned to nature â€“ finding the purest natural ingredients for vitamins and made the first biodegradable household cleaners.
Today, Shaklee is international and still operates on the philosophy that Dr. Forrest C. Shaklee implemented when it opened its doors years ago that Living in harmony with nature fueled an ongoing movement to help people live happier and healthier.
He is a true visionary and man before his time!
