What is Isagenix?
Isagenix is a range of health and well being products that is sold via network marketing.
You buy it through an Isagenix associate, you use it and obtain amazing results and then recommend it to others. Isagenix realises that that people love sharing systems that have worked so successfully for them, they also realise that people are more encouraged to use products that have been successful for the people around them. Given the huge range and variety of health and well being products on the market, it is great to find a range that works for friends so well that they want to share it with you.
I am not an herbalist or a naturopath, I have a science background in Transfusion Medicine. I wanted a range made in nature but backed by science and that is exactly what I got. The Essence Range by Isagenix. The work had all been done for me by teams of scientists and herbalist and naturopaths in a range of singles and blends, with a beautiful diffuser, a lovely application oil so I could apply the the 100% essential oils directly on my rather sensitive skin and an accompanying booklet. I was delighted at my find. When my essential oils range arrived so did the full Isagenix product catalogue. I was surprised and delighted to find they offered a dairy and gluten free range of meal replacement shakes that were nutritionally rich, balanced and filling while low in calories. I simply realised that it was my lack of knowledge about the Isagenix program that made me push it away so quickly. For years, we’ve always been told that a healthy, whole food diet is the way to go. And of course, it is. However with the way science and technology has progressed, we now have so many more options which remain to offer us high quality food, nutrition and balance. Knowing this, Isagenix began to tick all the boxes.
As dairy and gluten intolerant, traveling was super difficult. But now? No more eating or picking at aeroplane food, or struggling to find food I could eat while away from home. Isagenix is super easy to pack and travel with. My husband, who travels a lot for his job loves the ability to not have to worry about breakfast and lunch while travelling - the shakes make it super easy and reduces the cost as you aren’t having to eat out every meal. Often, with my intolerances, I end up eating a lot of nut based food which I love, but I also work in Playcentre as a Space facilitator and take a Tamariki Nui session. Most Playcentres (including the two I work at) are nut free, and little lives depend on you remembering that. No eating almond or peanut butter, let alone packing any of my home made baking. But yet again, with Isagenix, it’s so easy! At last I had found an easy alternative that was cheaper than a lot of my other food choices. The diary gluten free range is plant based with no animal derived ingredients or gluten so complements a range of dietary requirements and lifestyles including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free.
I now start everyday with a win, it takes less than 3 minutes to mix a shake and make a delicious smoothie bowl with rainbow of fruit added. It is a high protein, fully balanced breakfast that is packed with goodness. I have fruit or salad for morning tea, a shake with greens for lunch, fruit or a snack for afternoon tea and Nadia Lim’s Light food bag for dinner five days a week. One day a week I have a supported cleanse or intermittent fasting day. I had tried this some years earlier at my GP’s recommendation as a way of reducing visceral fat (something that even our skinny friends develop in middle age if not very careful). I had found it challenging and had given up. However, a supported cleanse day is quite different. You drink a beautiful blend of cleansing herbs and aloe vera that nourishes your digestive system while removing toxins. After a cleanse you feel energetic and clearheaded, any bloating is gone and hello flatter tummy. If I eat dairy by mistake I do a cleanse straight away to try and rebalance my poor bloated digestive system.
Two months into my new lifestyle my body began to show real signs of improvement. My weight had dropped and my muscle mass had built, I was hooked. I now follow a healthy maintenance system and am so pleased that someone cared enough to introduce me to the range.
My husband and one son have just started their own Isagenix journey after watching me get so much from the range. They both have hectic lifestyles with a lot of travel and a tendency for late night cravings from not eating well during the day. It is really rewarding to watch them start to enjoy the same benefits.
What can this range offer YOU?
This nourishing nutritional range bundles together to offer solutions for most.
I love this range as it aligns personally with my lifestyle and our Live Lively Principles:
I am making a conscious decision to age well. I want my future self to be my best self. I want to run and mountain bike and pilate well into my older age. I desire to stay active and keep up with the kids! I have complete power over what I eat and how it impacts on me. I have more energy, clarity and focus which helps enable me to work on my long term goals. I choose to nourish myself mindfully. I have the power to decide what I want in my life and also what I don’t want.I want to thrive not survive. They say the biggest block to an exceptional life is a good life. I choose an exceptional life. For me this is freedom from pain, a high level of self care and sound nutrition. I have the time and energy to aspire, dream and grow.
Financially, Isagenix is such a successful range for making some residual income. Isagenix desires to support their consumers physically, mentally and financially. They understand that often healthy living and a nutritional diet can be pricey. Isagenix desires to reduce the costs of living well, by encouraging you to share your results and how you have gained success through the program with others - and for this you are financially rewarded. We share the things we love with our family and friends anyway, so why not make some money through it too! Besides, it’s truly amazing to be a part of someone else’s success story. Knowing that you’ve supported them to become healthier, happier and fulfilled is almost the biggest reward of them all.
