We think our iHerb customers are awesome and we truly appreciate their support and their patronage, but we also know that they are all real people who are doing their best to live a life of health and wellness. That’s not always an easy task. Given that, we wanted to feature some of them and get their take on the steps they take towards their own well-being and hopefully, iHerb plays a part in that. Perhaps, from their words, you’ll be able to get some inspiration to help you make positive and healthy changes in your life as well. Today, let’s meet Sandra Wilk from Indian Rocks Beach, Florida.
Tell us a little about yourself:
I am a four and a half year survivor of the Pharmaceutical industry hold on “you must take this every day or you will die.” I have Hypothyroidism, a central nervous system periodic failure and suffer from panic attacks (from the Synthroid). Now I am healthy, active and overall feel better than I have in 20 years!
How did you find out about iHerb?
Kevin Trudeau’s book, “More Natural “Cures” Revealed”, (page 350)
What about iHerb first appealed to you?
The variety of products, nutritional information is listed as well as the product ingredients are listed, which is vital when I make a purchase to know exactly what I am putting in as well as on my body.
How long have you been in iHerb customer?
Not long enough!!!!
What are your favorite products and why?
Now Foods — for the supplements
Vital Force — for the B vitamins
Alba Botanica — for the hair and skin care
What is your health and wellness philosophy?
I could write a book on this one, but basically to sum it up, limit processed foods to less than 5% per meal (that includes organic processed), and the rest as organic as possible. Stay positive and think positive thoughts. Plan a vacation and look forward to it. Do not get soaked into the mainstream news whether online or on the TV or on printed form.
Do you have a favorite mantra or quote that describes how you try to live your life?
Be positive and always help others that are unable to help themselves. Treat other people better than how you want to be treated.
Do you have any current health goals you’re working toward and what are you doing to reach them or have you actually met one or more and would like to share your success story?
Overcoming being brainwashed into thinking that I needed to take a pill every day to survive. It is such a scam. I have not even had as much as a Tylenol in over 4 years. Any goals that I have are living life as healthy as possible, eating organic, whole foods and having time to rest and relax and of course, get plenty of sleep.
Are there any health and wellness tips you’d like to share with other iHerb customers?
This could be another chapter in a book entirely on focusing on becoming healthier. I truly think that you have to find your own way in this one. Each of us is very unique in how we are structured, physically and mentally. It takes some experimenting, but after a while you can find what works best for you. The best thing that you can do is to have an open mind when it comes to health care. Realize who has your best interest. Become a independent researcher on your own health issues. Stay away from all pharmaceuticals. I do mean all.
