My Story

​ ​ Hi, we are Dick and Barb, Education Health Specialists, with a focus on reducing your risk of major and minor illnesses through effective, natural food supplements like anti aging supplements and the best immune supplements.

Primarily, we focus on teaching people and designing a personal simple system that will aide them in resisting major illnesses such as cancer, diabetes, arthritis, asthma and more or minor health issues like joint problems, fatigue, asthma and allergies. Just like the show "Extreme Home Makeover" tears down an inadequate home and rebuilds a stronger one; My group doesn't need to tear down your bodies' home because the environment and our lifestyles have already done so.

We are here to teach you a way to resist future tearing down of your body and build it up to the strongest possible body. Therefore, when you do get sick, you have the best chance of recovering and the fastest recovery possible. We call this an Extreme Health Makeover. This is just one example of how I KNOW this system works.

Because I DID IT and live by it. I have lupus, but because of our Extreme Health Makeover I am able to do anything I wish to do. And if I can change my life for the better, so can you. Health and Harmony is here to help and guide. I am a stay at home mom who is happily married with 5 children. Have you ever tried one of those scam ads? I did "the mailing one" I know it sounds totally stupid, but I was desperate to make some money. Then I received a phone call from an undercover FBI agent asking for my records. Man I was totally scared. I decided that it was time to go with a company that I trusted. It's a long story, that I won't bore you with. ​ But yes, I was with Shaklee about 26 years ago and had left because my inventory was destroyed with a flood. In some respects, I left but in others I didn't because I continued to use the products.

What attracted me to the Shaklee corporation was my love of health and wanting to help others. I am an electrical engineer from University of Illinois and was a natural body builder prior to my children, my husband was a power lifter. I respected Shaklee's intense research, studied the nutrition side thoroughly, and now with children, I am passionate about having a nontoxic green home for my family's health. After calling my mentor, my passion grew stronger because I saw how they corrected some of the faults of the past, how the new owner is driven by passion, and how Shaklee made it easier for people to profit financially. I was nervous about how I could afford my products, but as time went on, my products were covered easily with my bonus checks. Skeptical of some of the claims, I started trying new products each month or even more frequently. I loved it.

I have lupus and my doctors have tried glucosamine before but nothing has helped, the anti-inflammatories are often recalled or don't help so I figured, what could I lose. Now I don't even need my Relaphin. I feel better than ever. My husband who has tried everything for heel spurs - brace, injections, wraps, insoles, etc was down to the final step which the doctors said was surgery. Knowing that surgery may or may not work, we decided to try calcium. He is a very muscular, most people would take one look at him and say he doesn't need calcium. However, within 1 week, he was no longer limping. Our lists goes on and on: our entire family's health has improved drastically just by changing products. Even cleaning has become a pleasure instead of a pain to do. It's amazing!

On the financial side, I have received a bonus check every month that I have been with Shaklee all by helping others have a healthier life. I am a proud member Carmbridge Who's Who, Peoria Business Builders, T.A.L.K, and St Vincent de Paul's Women's Club among numerous other organizations. Your health is truly priceless. If you don't believe me, just think of a time that you or a loved one was sick or had a major illness (cancer etc)...Are you thinking? How much would you have paid to prevent or lessen the pain? How much did the illness cost you and your family - monetarily and emotionally? Far too much. Preventative is the best kind of insurance and the best health care plan available. I'm thankful that I learned quick enough to help my family achieve their ultimate health through the best natural food supplement like resveratrol.

My goal is to help as many people as possible achieve their ultimate health through any degree they wish. Whether they wish to just convert a single cleaner or their entire home, we have a plan for them so they don't have to be just another statistic. I'm not a selling kind of person: Since I am a listening kind of person and my team offers well over 50 years of experience, we can design a plan just for you.

In today's world where many people seem to be using the internet solely to build their own lives up, I know it is important for you to see that here at Health and Harmony, we ARE different. ​

But don't take my word for it, see for yourself from one of thousands that we have coached. " I have worked with many people from all over during my life as an army wife, but Barb surpasses them all. She is more than a team player. She is ethical, moral, helpful, and friendly. She really cares about your life not just your business. If you are not happy with Barb, then you just can't be pleased. I look forward to many more years of being on her team. -- Robin in MS

My Team

One of the great things about Shaklee is that I get to work with some amazing people…my friends! They’re people from all walks of life – some used work in Corporate America, others work from home. Still others work in the public sector and do their Shaklee business on the side.

But there is a common denominator…we’re all guided some key principles:

  • WE​ do what’s right.
  • WE see the big picture.
  • WE recycle.
  • WE are coachable.
  • WE keep it real.
  • WE see beyond obstacles.
  • WE put “we” above “me.”
  • WE succeed by dedicating ourselves to the dreams of others.
  • WE love helping you become the person you were born to be. ​

My Trips

Like a lot of people, I decided to build a business with Shaklee because I love the products. It’s easy for me to share something I already love with others. Why not get paid to do it, right? ​ And once I got started, I learned that if I put in the effort, I could earn INCREDIBLE trips on top of the cash bonuses I make.

Shaklee has taken us around the world! Places like Paris, Bali, and Tuscany just to name a few. They’ve also treated us to stays in some of the most fabulous beach-side resorts in Mexico, Hawaii and the Caribbean. And when we travel with Shaklee, it’s always five-star. Dream destinations with experiences usually reserved for the rich and famous.

The only thing that tops going on a Shaklee trip? Bringing someone else along! Want to go with me on Shaklee’s next trip? Let's talk.
