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 Lanie Heller from New England.
Tell us a little about yourself:
My name is Lanie Heller. I am a full time stay at home Mama and a part time Certified Lactation Counselor and Postpartum Doula. I live in beautiful New England. I’ve been a vegetarian for 23 years and love living healthy, eating healthy and letting my body heal itself.
How did you find out about iHerb?
Believe it or not I was selling cars back in 2002 and one of the salesmen, a really lovely older gentleman told me about Iherb.com I’ve been a loyal customer ever since!!
What about iHerb first appealed to you?
The price of course initially. Then the speed of my shipments, the wonderful customer service and the variety of products!
How long have you been in iHerb customer?
What are your favorite products and why?
I have so many that I buy regularly, but I guess if I had to name a few I’d say: Now 5-HTP 100mg, Organic Tulsi Tea by Organic India, Sovereign Silver, Hyland’s Arthritis Pain Formula and Garden of Life Raw Protein Powder.
What is your health and wellness philosophy?
I believe VERY stongly in letting your body heal from the inside out. I love Homeopathy and Hylands is one of my favorites! I treat my son with Homeopathy as well. We love the Hyland’s kids products.
Do you have a favorite mantra or quote that describes how you try to live your life?
Yes: “I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better.” — Maya Angelou We all make mistakes in life, but learning from them and growing from then is what’s crucial.
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?
Not really, I am at a great weight, I lost all my baby weight after my son was born quickly by nursing so much. I guess I would love to have back some of my muscle that was lost from the pregnancy though, so yeah, more muscle!!!
Are there any health and wellness tips you’d like to share with other iHerb customers?
I believe that eating right is key for long life and health. I am 42, my husband is 33 and people often mistake me for the younger one. He doesn’t eat as well as me or stay as active so my tip is Eat right, Drink TONS of water and stay active, I love Yoga!! Also, remove your make up every night for great skin. Haha!
