We look forward to helping you achieve Optimal Health for you and your family!

​ ​ Welcome to our Shaklee Family, ​ ​ ​ My wife and I have eight wonderful healthy children who have been raised on Shaklee they are third generation Shaklee users.

One of the benefits of a Shaklee household is that we never needed to lock up our cleaning products because every product is always SAFE, ALWAYS GREEN from the beginning, and truly always WORKS! When my oldest daughter was four years old, she accidentally splashed some of the Basic G (Shaklee's germicide) into her eye. My wife took her to the eye doctor immediately! The doctor was very worried because it was a disinfectant, but when Heidi showed him the Shaklee label, he responded that if there was a disinfectant to put into a baby's eye that was it. He said a couple of days of irritation and no long-term effect. She has perfect vision to this day and is in her 20's. ​

​ ​ My friends at work were always running their children into the doctor for this or that. With our family of 8, there has never been one case of strep throat, sinus infection, ear infection, or need of an anti-bionic. This is almost impossible in America, yet with Shaklee family, it is the norm. ​

​ ​ Our sixth daughter Catherine was diagnosed with Autism at 2 years of age. At four years she was specifically diagnosed with Rhett Syndrome. She was allergic to all dairy, wheat, eggs and acidic foods. By putting her on a high Shaklee supplement regimen we were able to change her allergic response in just over a year. She was re-tested and showed no allergies to anything. She is physically a Shaklee miracle when she should be a vegetable in a wheelchair. What does that mean? - She walks up and down stairs and with assistance she can feed herself, ski, roller blade, and skate, which no Rhett's girl is supposed to do!

​ ​ ​ My wife and I have been with Shaklee over thirty years. Heidi's parents are Lifetime Master Coordinators; but it took Catherine to show us that Shaklee is incredibly unique! As Joyce Hoffman stated on one of the Shaklee CDs, "If you know what Shaklee can do to help others and you do not share it, you are selfish." My life has been significantly changed since our Shaklee business has allowed me to retire as a corporate manager to do Shaklee and enjoy the freedom of running our own business!

And now our adult children are also experiencing the freedom of having their own businesses. ​ ​ ​ We are here to help you reach your optimal health and financial freedom and in doing so, will help make a positive difference in the lives of many people worldwide! ​

​ ​ If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at any time. ​ ​ ​ Sincerely, Dave and Heidi Carlstedt ​ ​

​ ​ Our Rett Syndrome Child

​ ​ Some of you know Heidi and my story. We have eight wonderful children and our sixth daughter, Catherine, was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome. ​

​ Some of the main issues with this syndrome is that it is non-hereditary and is a defect on the MECP2 protein. The symptoms are: Seizures 15-20 times a day (80% of the girls), constipation, stunted hand / head/ feet growth, ; many do not walk, scoliosis is very common before age five, most are non-verbal and all of these girls have some kind of muscle deterioration by age five. ​

​ Heidi was told by the doctor that Catherine would be dead by 14 years of age. Heidi went on a mission from that point and started researching first to find out what Rett is all about, then what we can do to stop the regression stage of the disease. ​ ​

We are in three national studies: Johns Hopkins in Baltimore Maryland, University of Alabama of Birmingham, and Gillette Hospital. Catherine’s condition challenged us to do research on other companies on the market to see if there was anything else that could help her. We have researched every company that was brought to our attention and have found nothing that can compare to Shaklee in quality and research and potency! ​ ​

The main Rett Syndrome research doctor who has seen 700 of the 1,500 known cases in the United States says she is at the top as far as what she can do. He still does not understand this since her mutations is in the severe area. Catherine is on a heavy food supplementation regimen, but when you weigh the choices of everything that Catherine should be and what she is, this is a small price to pay. ​ ​
Catherine also had 72 food allergies when she was 4. Today she is allergic to nothing, thanks to Shaklee’s immune building supplements! ​

​ Of all of our children, not one has had strep throat, sinus infection, ear infection, or ever needed and anti-biotic. This Shaklee miracle and the knowledge that we have gathered has led us to build a business that enables us to help our own family so many other people in our Shaklee family live in optimal health and have financial freedom in the process. ​

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​ follow the Golden Rule.
  • WE see the big picture.
  • WE look for those that are coach able.
  • WE work on your Dreams.
  • 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. ​
  • We require a positive attitude.

Join our Shaklee Travel Team

I was in corporate America for 30 years. With Shaklee when we started to take the business part serious we found an incredible travel package. ​ We no longer have to pay for our vacations. ​

This 2007 picture was our first experience with traveling with Shaklee. We have only missed a couple of years since then. What a great reward for helping others live a healthier life.
