  • Four Facets of a Brilliant Body #1 Core Health C ore Health is about building a solid foundation for good and lasting health. In construction, without a solid foundation, a house can’t do its job of protecting its inhabitants from the elements, much less provide the comfort we associate with a home. In terms of health, without a solid foundation of core health, your body can’t protect you from immune challenges or the onset of disease. And it certainly can’t provide the energy, stamina, peace of mind and sense of well being that you really want. Core health starts with proper amounts of vital nutrients, including: Vitamins are substances needed by the body for normal growth and function. They must be obtained by food because they are either not made at all by the body, or not made in sufficient quantities to ensure good health. Minerals. In addition to vitamins, your body needs minerals to function normally. Both macro minerals—calcium, phosphorus and magnesium—and numerous trace minerals are necessary. Fiber is the indigestible food stuff found in whole grains, fruits and vegetables. It is vital to the health of the colon and heart because it absorbs waste, toxins, cholesterol and excess water and provides the bulk needed to move them through the colon and out of the body. Enzymes help your body get the most from food. They break down food into the basic nutrients the body needs. Without proper enzymes, digestion can be incomplete. Essential Fatty Acids, both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, are sometimes known as the good fats because they are necessary for good health. They are considered “essential” because your body cannot manufacture them; they must be obtained through the diet. Antioxidants sweep up and neutralize free radicals produced as a byproduct of normal body processes, such as metabolism, and by environmental pollutants. Left un-neutralized, free radicals can cause cell damage and other issues ranging from cell abnormalities to premature aging. Start with a Clean Slate An effective colon cleanse is an ideal way to start any health program. It helps the body get rid of the buildup of toxins and wastes that can clog the colon. A cleanse also leaves a clean colon able to more effectively remove future waste. In effect, it cleans the whole body, not just the colon, making it possible for the body to properly absorb healthfulNature’s Sunshine Products, Inc. nutrients.

  • Four Facets of a Brilliant Body #2 Weight Management T he second facet of body brilliance is achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. In the last decade or so, researchers have confirmed strong correlations between excess weight and the onset of disease. Proper weight is beneficial, not only in terms of avoiding disease but in having adequate energy for daily living. It also boosts self-esteem, which can affect job opportunities, social activities and so much more. There’s no shortage of weight-loss advice in the stratosphere. Today, let’s look at three simple questions. What do you eat? What kinds of foods go in your mouth? Consider the quality of your foods—whole grain, raw/fresh, processed, preservatives. Reading food labels can be eye opening. But if it’s too overwhelming, simply ask yourself, “What kind of nutrition will this food offer my body?” Fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grain products tend to make you feel full more quickly than refined foods with little fiber or volume. Protein and fat are important. Protein fuels muscle building and repair, which is needed during and after exercise. And fat helps with satiety, or satisfaction. Choose lean proteins and good fats like those found in nuts, when possible. How much do you eat? Pay attention. Write it down if you dare. Add up all meals, snacks, grazing before bed. And don’t forget drinks. Do you eat a plateful at lunch and dinner? What about second helpings? Do you eat out more than once a week? Keep in mind many restaurants serve portions that could nearly feed two adults. Don’t forget to consider “How much do you drink?” Many people consume as much as 500 calories a day or more in beverages. That might be 25% or more of your suggested daily calorie intake! Drink water, lots of it. Start by drinking at least 64 ounces of water a day. Water helps move food through the GI tract, flushes toxins, rehydrates the body after exercise and helps you feel full. And it’s FREE! How much do you move? Movement, activity, exercise. Call it what you will, it’s important to health and vital to weight management. Exercise helps keep muscles toned and increases metabolism. It’s good for the cardiovascular system and helps joints too. Set a goal to walk 60 minutes a day. If you can’t do this, then start where you can and gradually increase. Move your body. Find If you’re social and it fits your budget, a gym something you enjoy. membership is great.

  • Four Facets of a Brilliant Body #3 Energy & Fitness A sk anyone over 40 if he or she would like more energy. Come to think of it, ask any parent of young children if they want more energy. Or a parent of teenagers…or college students. Whatever his or her situation in life, just about everyone wants more energy. With energy you can enjoy life the way you want to, whether that’s staying awake in classes, keeping up with your children, reaching your fitness goals, completing that list of projects, or doing all of the activities you want to do. Elements of Energy Proper Nutrition is vital to every body process, including energy production, because nutrients provide the fuel your body systems need to function. If you don’t give yourself the components of energy—vital nutrients along with a proper balance of high-quality protein and carbohydrates—your body cannot produce energy. For more on vital nutrients and core health, see pages 4–5. Healthful Eating. Sugar may seem to provide the body with a jolt of energy, but after an initial high, energy levels crash. Ditto for foods that are quickly converted to sugars in the body, such as white flour, white rice and other simple carbohydrates. Adequate Sleep. It goes without saying that your body needs adequate rest to create energy. A tired body is, well, a tired body. Experts recommend that adults get 7–9 hours of sleep a night. With sleep and energy, more is not always better. Too much sleep can leave you feeling slow and sluggish. Physical Activity. It may seem counterintuitive because the last thing you want to do when you’re feeling tired is go for a jog. But research suggests that regular exercise increases energy levels, even amongNature’s Sunshine Products, Inc. people who suffer from chronic Order Sales 1-800-453-1422 medical conditions. www.naturessunshine.com 8 Sunshine Horizons, July 2011

And the sugar content is only 6 grams.” —Linda & Leon M. ........................................................................... Solstic Energy “Solstic Energy drink is an upgrade from all the caffeine products many [people] are now using. It has only 4 grams of carbs compared with 25 grams in [popular] energy drinks.

I am really excited about the Solstic Revive.” —Linda & Leon M. ........................................................................... On Brilliant Body Parties “My manager and other upline members helped me understand what a ‘reasonable’ earning goal per party might be. Then, we sat down and tried to figure out what it would take to make that happen. Using the new Brilliant Body Party/Presentation at gatherings weekly is a big part of the plan. I am sharing with just about everyone who will listen. “Showing the plan casually to individuals, couples or even several family members at once has really paid off. Because I was patient with a few people on a smaller scale, now those folks are willing to host several parties over a period of two months because we have built a basis of trust. “I’ve used the party plan binder and may expand on it by adding more products. The party plan is a great base on which I plan on building several different types of presentations.” —“Sunny Nature,” Calif.12 Sunshine Horizons, July 2011

  • .... . . . . . . ... . . . . . . . Managers of the Year Jay and Tracy Vanden Heuvel ............. J ay and Tracy Vanden Heuvel of Oneida, Wis., were named Managers of the Year at our National Convention in Cancun. Jay and Tracy joined Nature’s Sunshine in 1994, but their interest in natural health began long before that. In fact, when Jay’s dad was diagnosed with serious compromised immune-system issues in 1990 and given six months to live, Jay nursed him back to health with natural products, including Essiac tea that Jay made himself. When he found Nature’s Sunshine’s capsulized version and was satisfied with NSP’s unsurpassed quality, the Vanden Heuvels joined Nature’s Sunshine. One year later they became Managers. “We began by seeing people. Word spread that my father, who had been given a very limited life expectancy, was alive and healthy five years later. It grew from there,” says Jay. “We both ended up retiring from big corporate jobs to pursue our dreams of helping people one at a time and to work for ourselves. That has since grown into helping thousands,” says Tracy. “To date we have seen over 16,000 people and lectured to over 100,000. Our families laughed at us and thought we would surely starve! They are not laughing anymore. Our business has grown from individual counseling to international lecturing. We have seen places like Hawaii going on five times. All because NSP is in our life.”
  • The Vanden Heuvels built their business as of education doesn’t matter. Your background doesn’t practitioners and realized a lot of success with their matter,” explains Jay. “Passion is the most important by-appointment model. In 2008, they decided to factor to your success. Passion can’t be taught, but embrace network marketing. Today about 30 percent if you have it, there is no reason why you can’t be of their time is spent as practitioners, while the bulk of successful. You just have to care. If you care, you have their time is spent lecturing with NSP and mentoring. passion. And if you have passion, you’ll make it.” Tracy In the past three years, the Vanden Heuvels have echoes that sentiment, “If you have passion, becoming become passionate about mentoring. “I always tell brilliant in business, health and life will naturally people to be the manager you wish you had, and follow.” be the mentor that you want to mentor you. And I And to those with the passion, the Vanden tell those that I am mentoring that I want them to Heuvels have another piece of advice: never give be bigger and better than we are. Getting into this up. “Every single person will be challenged at some business is challenging. People need leadership and point. It’s tough to get to the point where you can mentoring,” explains Jay. “The key to success is being support yourself full-time. But be persistent and be duplicable,” says Tracy. “When we mentor, we teach courageous,” Jay counsels. “Failure is simply not an them everything we know so that they can duplicate, option,” says Tracy. “It is not always easy, but as a and beat, our success,” adds Jay. friend of mine says, ‘Success is the only option.’ Work To others, Jay and Tracy advise passion. “Your level for it.”... . . . . . . . . ................................ . . . . . “Jay and Tracy are as passionate about Nature’s Sunshine as they are about the Green Bay Packers. They are a case study in human kindness and hard work; the kind of people that you find yourself wanting to get to know. Congratulations, Jay and Tracy! Thank you for being part of the NSP Revolution!” —Mat Larsen, Marketing Product Manager “I first met Jay and Tracy at our Rising Star Convention in 2002. Jay stood out because of his fantastically bright Green Bay Packer outfit. Being a devout Green Bay Packer fan myself, it was obvious to me that Jay was my kind of a guy. He was cool, he was outstanding, and, of course, he was (and still is) a Rising Star. “Over the years, Jay and Tracy have demonstrated to me their outstanding qualities in terms of leadership, knowledge, education and the training of others, and, perhaps most importantly, an excellent caring attitude. Their managerial skills are exceptional. . . . “When I first learned of their award, I thought that it was so fitting and appropriate that Jay and Tracy, who are so deserving of this honor, were named Managers of the Year at the same time that the Packers won the Super Bowl. Rewards are earned through hard work and a resourceful, positive attitude. “CONGRATULATIONS, Jay and Tracy!” —Dr. Bill Keller, Vice President of Health Sciences and Educational Services “Jay and Tracy are great people who represent NSP well. I have known them for many years, and have talked with them through many different experiences life throws at us. They both impress me with their unique abilities to overcome obstacles, remain positive and focused on their future goals. Jay and Tracy Vanden Heuvel are deserving recipients of the NSP Manager of the Year award!” —Blake Christensen, Director of Marketing
