LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT MY STORY AND WHAT EXCITES ME

 (updated December 2015)

Rachel Lee Cronin

Mom of 2, “Mompreneur”, Yogi Enthusiast, Blogger, Artist, Dreamer, Creator, Mind.Body.Soul Coach

New Jersey

Almost 32 years young :)

For those who know me, I have always been a very positive and spirited person. Both pregnancies I practiced yoga, meditation, and was still active because I was always in love with healing my body in every aspect imaginable. There was a time that things changed. After our 2nd child was born, I was exhausted, I lacked energy, and felt imbalanced, I lost control of myself. Although, I felt so grateful to be blessed with creating another beautiful being, I gave ALL my attention to my children that I lost my purpose and desire to do anything for myself. Looking back, it was no doubt stress that was causing this pain from within. We were struggling to keep our heads above water financially, my husband had to get a 2nd job to keep us afloat. He would go from work to work (sunrise to sunset) and even work weekends, landscaping for extra cash. We barely saw each other and (for anyone that stays at home I’m sure you can relate) my days were very long, mentally, physically, and emotionally draining. I relied on coffee to bring me up ("No one talk to Mommy until she has her Joe") and then a glass of wine to bring me down at night to unwind. I was definitely emotionally eating (chocolate chip cookies were my weakness) to fill the void. I so desperately wanted to regain my over all health back to have more energy, shake the extra baby weight, and find strength for my children... to be the amazing mom I knew I could be. It was then that I was introduced to nutritional cleansing. 

For my 30th birthday (2 years ago in March), I gave myself the gift of optimal health. I began with the modified nursing program, I was amazed that what took me 6 months to get back into shape with my first child: counting calories and a lot of hard work at the gym…. only took me less than 2 short months to lose the rest of my baby weight with my second child!!!! That's a whopping 16lbs! I was excited to fit into my “skinny” clothes again but I have to admit that the weight loss was truly an added bonus. My light was so much brighter, I was jumping out of bed every morning with a new sense of confidence, I re-gained my energy and motivation back to get myself back in the gym, and I was able to quiet my mind when it was time for me to sit in my “sacred space” (a corner in my bedroom which I am forever grateful for) in meditation. This truly got me through one of the toughest years, regaining control and seeing that there is a better way.People started to take notice of my results and wanted to join in on the fun! It became a MASSIVE ripple effect and I began helping others reach their own personal goals.

This is when a lightbulb went off in my head! >>WHAT EXCITES ME: The integrity of this company that I refer to so many blesses their consumers with the opportunity for financial freedom, instead of paying for costly advertising or endorsing big names. They want real people with real experiences spreading the word of their vision.

 

>>WHAT EXCITES ME: The integrity of this company that I refer to, blesses their consumers with the opportunity for financial freedom, instead of paying for costly advertising or endorsing big names. They want real people with real experiences spreading the word of their vision. As I dove more into researching and understanding the love and passion that went into each decisive step in creating these incredible products..IT BLOWS MY MIND and simply put... extraordinary. I have to admit that I was very skeptical at first, even though I would grab a shake at the gym (now knowing that this was not the healthiest option) after a workout (and pay twice as much!) not realizing the harm I could be doing by not choosing the highest quality product for recovery and nourishment. It gives me such relief to know that the nutrients my family and I are putting into our bodies are from clean, pure, and *UNDENATURED* ingredients. This is so important because the shakes out there are heavily polluted with all sorts of junk. What really made this protein shake undeniably incredible was even the tiny little details of care and attention, the undenatured whey is from happy cows in New Zealand, meaning that the quality of this whey is kept as close to Nature as possible without any hormones, antibiotics, additives, and artificial colors/flavors.  Here is a short video demonstrating the thought and focus put into developing these no compromise products.

 

<<<<<WHAT REALLY EXCITES ME>>>>>

I receive so much gratitude for helping to be apart of TRANSFORMING lives!

I am feeling incredible in my “vessel”, my body, the one and only gift that I am blessed with. I have the energy to take my performance to the next level, completing my first Spartan Super Race this year! But even better, being a walking testimonial of this new lifestyle has allowed for me to be able to help more and more people transform their lives (putting my Psych degree to good use!) while being able to stay at home with my girls (FOREVER!). I am filled with gratitude when I receive messages that someone is feeling alive again and comfortable in their own “vessel” too!. This opportunity not only allows for me to be my own boss, create my own schedule, and create my dream …It gives me the freedom to pursue my artistic endeavors, continue helping more to share the beautiful practice of Yoga (finishing up my 200RYT Certification), AND help to support my family which is absolutely immeasurable! I am proud to say the weight has been lifted (pun intended). The financial stress is no longer, I was able to relieve my husband from his 2nd job to be home with his family more often, regain my mind.body.soul, and for us to live our lives passionately. I feel like I am in complete control of designing my own freedom and I feel so strongly that this is such a unique gift that I want to share with the World!!!! All it takes is a bit of hope, faith, and belief to achieve what some would say is impossible.

If you look closely..Impossible can transform into
I’m possible. Change your thinking, Change your Life.

I absolutely am in LOVE with the meanING, THE PERFECT REPRESENTATION OF THE NAME ISAGENIX, AND HOW IT CAME INTO FRUITION…

WHAT DOES ISAGENIX MEAN?

  THE EXACT MEANING ROOTS in ANCIENT SANSKRIT. Isagenix is translated to “perfecter of the body” or “balanced life or health”.  

Thousands of people have asked John where the name Isagenix came from;
While in a restaurant one day, John was brainstorming names for future use.
(A name that would be used for the most special products).

John Anderson, formulator, was divinely inspired when the name “Isagenix” came to him. It had meaning, substance and a special feeling to it! John was thinking of the body, mussel tissue, healthy cell reproduction, lack of nutrition in todays foods,
supplementation, and quickly, Isagenix was written on a napkin.

Even today, John has not found all of the meanings of this powerful word, there are so many.

Here are the Sanskrit meanings of the word Isagenix I found;

isagenix ईशप्रतिभाशालिन्

“Isa”, ईश

Sanskrit word iiza ईश,
Possessing Knowledge, powerful, Masterful,

“Genix” प्रतिभाशालिन्
Sanskrit word geni pratibhaazaalin
Genius, tie, intelligent, ward off, surety, answer, a match for, idea, understanding, creativity,

Sanskrit word
{ prati- bhaaS }
Answer
genix |ˈjēnyəs|
noun ( pl. geniuses )
1 exceptional intellectual or creative power or other natural ability : she was a teacher of genius | Gardner had a real genius for tapping wealth.
2 a person who is exceptionally intelligent or creative, either generally or in some particular respect : one of the great musical geniuses of the 20th century.
3 ( pl. genii |ˈjēnēˌī|) (in some mythologies) a guardian spirit associated with a person, place, or institution.
• a person regarded as exerting a powerful influence over another for good:
4 ( pl. genii ) the prevalent character or spirit of something such as a nation or age : Boucher’s paintings did not suit the austere genius of neoclassicism.
ORIGIN late Middle English : from Latin, ‘attendant spirit present from one’s birth, innate ability or inclination,’ from the root of gignere ‘beget.’ The original sense [tutelary spirit attendant on a person] gave rise to a sense [a person’s characteristic disposition] (late 16th cent.), which led to a sense [a person’s natural ability,] and finally [exceptional natural ability] (mid 17th cent.).

Sanskrit word
आन्दुवंशिकी
aanduvaMzikii

Healthy cell reproduction,
Genetics
genetics |jəˈnetiks|
plural noun [treated as sing. ]
the study of heredity and the variation of inherited characteristics.
• [treated as sing. or pl. ] the genetic properties or features of an organism, characteristic, etc.

Meaning of Isagenix in the Sanskrit is only a few of the many important definitions inspiring this great name and company!

Tony Escobar writes;
ISAGENIX;

ISA MEANS DIVINE INSPIRATION OR DIETY. GENIX MEANS SYSTEM. ISAGENIX IS A SYSTEM THAT IS DIVINELY INSPIRED

 


 

 

Nutritional Cleansing Q+A

Do you have a question about nutritional cleansing? Are you a new cleanser, but unsure how to use the products? Not to worry—we’ve put together some of the most common questions and answered them on this post. These FAQ will assist you along your healthy lifestyle journey.

Q. Why do I need  nutritional cleansing?

 A. Toxins and stress in our modern environment subject our bodies to continual risk of poor health. Once you begin cleansing you’ll notice you’ll feel cleaner (like the feeling you get after a shower), and more energized. You’ll be healthier, too. Next time you look in the mirror you may also notice you are a few pounds leaner.

 Q. How does nutritional cleansing work?

 A. Over time, the human body has had to adjust to natural toxins in the environment, often with significant help from certain plants that provide special active components. Nutritional cleansing enlists a blend of these botanicals along with vitamins and minerals to support the body nutritionally for the modern world’s onslaught of new toxins*.

Q. Why does Cleanse for Life™ Tropical Berry flavor have two sets of directions? What is the difference between Everyday Cleansing and Deep Cleansing?

 A. Keeping your body free of toxins is not too different from maintaining a home. To renew the beauty of your home, an annual “spring cleaning” does the job, but to keep your home safe and orderly, regular daily cleaning is necessary.

Cleanse for Life Tropical Berry flavor can be used to serve both the function of giving the internal body a thorough wash-down and that of providing for its daily up-keep, which is why its label now features two sets of directions.

The first set of directions highlights Everyday Cleansing and the second highlights Deep Cleansing. Everyday Cleansing consists of drinking 1-2 fl. oz. up to twice daily, first thing in the morning or between meals. Deep Cleansing consists of its use as an all-day drink for up to two consecutive Cleanse Days, drinking 4 fl. oz. with 4 fl. oz. of cold water four times daily as part of the Cleansing and Fat Burning System or Total Health and Wellness System.

Q. Where can I find instructions on  how to use the Cleansing and Fat Burning System?

  A. You can find instructions on how to use the Cleansing and Fat Burning System here (30-day supply) and here (9-day supply). You can find instructions on how to use the Total Health and Wellness System here.

Q. Is Cleanse for Life safe for long-term use?

A. Yes. It is absolutely safe. And healthy. You can use Cleanse for Life on a daily basis long-term. Deep Cleansing, which entails performing Cleanse Days, should be limited to no more than two consecutive days per week.

 Q. Can I use Cleanse for Life by itself for nutritional cleansing benefit?

 Yes. However, the product was designed to be used as part of one of our complete programs: the Cleansing and Fat Burning System (9-day30-day supply) or the Total Health and Wellness System (30-day supply).

 Q. Why was Ashwaghanda added to the product?

A. Ashwaghanda (Withania somnifera), also known as Winter Cherry, is classified in Ayurvedic medicine as a plant that helps the body resist stress.* The plant helps reduce oxidative stress, supports liver health and detoxification, and has potential for slowing aging.*

Q. Why was Yellow Dock added to the product?

A. Yellow Dock (Rumex crispus) leaves, sometimes used in salads, can help encourage bile production, serving the needs of the liver for ridding itself of toxins.* In larger doses, it can serve in helping with constipation.

Q. Why were bilberry, blueberry and raspberry added to the product?

A. Three berries that are well known for their antioxidant activity are now part of Cleanse for Life. Bilberry and blueberry, touted for supporting vision and mental health, also assist in strongly supporting detoxification.* Raspberry’s content of ellagic acid provides strong free-radical scavenging activity.*

 Q. Why does Cleanse for Life contain inner-leaf Aloe vera gel?

 A. Aloe vera gel consists of polysaccharides, glycoproteins, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. The gel can help soothe and reduce inflammation in the gut and colon, may enhance bioavailability of vitamins C and E and its natural antioxidant activity can help reduce oxidative stress.

The gel’s polysaccharides have been studied for their ability to balance the immune system and their actions as natural detoxifiers, helping to move along biochemical processes in the liver to neutralize toxins.

Q. Is Aloe vera gel a laxative?

A. No. Unlike “aloe bitters,” a yellow sap that contains anthroquinones, the gel contains no laxative effect and is absolutely non-toxic. Note: Use of “aloe bitters” is not legal in dietary supplement drinks.

Q. Why is Pau d’Arco used in the product?

A. Pau d’Arco (Tabebuia heptaphylla) is an herb with a history of use in Paraguay for a wide variety of ailments. It nourishes cells within the digestive tract and can help the body resist infection.* The plant may help reduce inflammation and guard against damage from cumulative toxins.*

Q. Why is Burdock in the product?

A. Burdock root (Arctium lappa) has a historic use as a blood purifier and helps rid the circulation system of toxins.* This thistle relative offers components that help protect the liver.*

Q. Why is Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice in the product?

A. Deglycyrrhizinated licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra), or DGL, is commonly used for detoxification in Asia and helps offer protection to the liver.* Its antioxidant activity helps protect DNA against damage.* We use the deglycyrrhizinated version of licorice root so there’s no contraindication for people with high blood pressure.

Q. Why is there fructose in Cleanse for Life?

A. Cleanse for Life includes a small amount of natural fructose (fruit sugar) because it provides a pleasant taste and feeds the body a steady stream of carbohydrates for energy. We do not use high-fructose corn syrup or any artificial flavors or sweeteners in any products.

Q. Why are B vitamins in Cleanse for Life?

A. A healthy amount of B vitamins is needed to support your metabolism to break down fats and carbohydrates. Daily B vitamins can also support your immune system and help maintain muscle tone, healthy skin, and steady energy.

Q. I see you offer Cleanse for Life in liquid and powder. Which is more effective for nutritional cleansing?

A. Both products offer the same potency from its ingredient.

Q. Are there any contraindications when performing Cleanse Days?

A. Because of the reduced calories, Cleanse Days should not be performed by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. In addition, those on medication or with a medical condition should consult a physician before Deep Cleansing.

Q. Should someone on blood thinners perform Cleanse Days?

A. If you’re on blood thinners or any other medication, we strongly advise you seek supervision of your healthcare professional. Your physician will need to monitor your Pt levels if you choose to cleanse. Performing Cleanse Days may result in natural thinning of the blood. This is because you are drinking lots of fluids and limiting caloric intake. For more information, click here.

Q. Should athletes and “thin” people use Cleanse for Life?

A. Athletes and thin people can benefit from Cleanse for Life. We regard nutritional cleansing to be the “missing link” to many health benefits such as vitality, more energy and better absorption of nutrients.

When preparing for competition such as endurance events, Deep Cleansing should be avoided because limiting caloric intake may deplete muscle glycogen. 

Q. I get headaches while Deep Cleansing. What can I do about them?

A. First-time cleansers may experience mild headaches (for up to a week) as a common caffeine withdrawal symptom from giving up coffee or caffeinated soda. If necessary, headaches can usually be alleviated by eating an IsaDelight® dark chocolate (approximately 10mg of caffeine per piece) or drinking a cup of green tea.

Q. I experience leg cramping while Deep Cleansing. What can I do to avoid the cramping?

A. Some cleansers will experience leg cramps if they are receiving insufficient mineral electrolytes—magnesium, calcium, potassium, sodium. These can be alleviated by taking IsaFlush® and IsaCalcium®, eating 1 or 2 IsaDelight pieces, and/or snacking on nuts, fruits or leafy green vegetables. If cramping continues or becomes chronic, please be sure to follow up with a visit to your doctor’s office.

Q. I experience constipation while Deep Cleansing. How can I make sure to stay regular?

A. The key to avoiding constipation during a Cleanse Day is to keep dietary fiber intake high on Shake Days. Our recommendation is to gradually increase fiber intake to 25-30g daily in line with recommendations from the National Fiber Council. Getting enough is easily achieved by eating plenty of fruits and vegetables as well as taking advantage of products such as FiberPro and SlimCakes®. Regular water intake also works with fiber to help alleviate constipation. If constipation continues beyond a few days, please be sure to follow up with a visit to your doctor’s office.

On Cleanse Days, you may also wish to include some fiber by adding FiberPro to your Cleanse for Life drink throughout the day.

Q. I feel cold when Deep Cleansing in winter. How can I stay warm?

A. Customers may feel cold while cleansing because they are drinking cold water and liquids regularly and avoiding regular amounts of food, which in itself produces a thermal effect during digestion. To alleviate feelings of coldness during cleansing in the winter months, consider drinking Cleanse for Life and accompanying water and herbal teas at warm temperatures.

Q. I feel flu-like symptoms or feel like I may be becoming sick while Deep Cleansing. How can I avoid this feeling?

A. If you begin to feel like you are coming down with the flu, please stop your Cleanse Day, return to Shake Days, and be sure to follow up with a doctor’s visit. If it turns out you have caught a bug, you may need medical treatment  and steady nutrition for your immune system.

Q. I experience “flushing” when I cleanse. Is this harmful? How can I avoid it?

A. Customers may experience “flushing” while on the program. This reaction is safe and may be related to an individual sensitivity to nicotinic acid, a form of niacin. Flushing can be avoided by taking the following products, which contain nicotinic acid, separately: Cleanse for Life, Ionix Supreme® and Natural Accelerator®. Because Natural Accelerator contains other ingredients that may result in a more pronounced flushing experience, it should be taken with food or replaced with Antioxidants.

Q. I have experienced an allergic reaction while Deep Cleansing. What should I do?

A. If you experience an allergic reaction, please discontinue whichever product may have been associated with the reaction and be sure to follow up with a doctor’s visit. Please also report your reaction or any other serious adverse event to nutrition@isagenix.net

Q. I feel dizzy, like I will pass out when I’m cleansing. Could this be because my blood pressure is too low?

A. Yes. Lower blood pressure may be a natural result of performing Cleanse Days. If you have low blood pressure or are on blood pressure medications, please have your doctor monitor you and make adjustments as necessary before and while cleansing. (Reviewed by Dr. Dennis Harper.) Dizziness can also be caused by blood sugar becoming too low (See next question.)

Q. I have diabetes. Should I be worried about my blood glucose rising too high or falling too low?

A. Blood glucose levels should be monitored closely while on the program if you have diabetes. Not every individual will have similar results and you may need to make modifications as necessary. Please consult your doctor before adjusting medication. (Reviewed by Dr. Dennis Harper)

Q. How should someone who is diabetic and insulin dependent use Cleanse for Life?

A. We strongly advise anyone who is diabetic perform Cleanse Days only under close medical supervision. A physician will be able to help a patient with diabetes monitor glucose levels, modify medication and transition to short-acting insulin versus long-acting insulin when needed for cleansing.
