Never Too Young To Take Care Of Yourself

Yesterday we had the wonderful opportunity to attend the NEW product launch for Herbalife Malaysia which was the NW formula. It was introduced by a Dr from Taiwan who sits on the Herbalife Nutrional Board.

What was interesting and also an eye opener was the facts that he shared. It was very informative and very helpful. The event itself was amazing with a few thousand in attendance and the presentation was done in Chinese. We had to tune into our translators which were also provided either in Bahasa or English. It was truly an international event.

Anyways yesterday we realized that with today's research in medicine and also in health and personal wellness we should take advantage of all the studies done. I truly believe that prevention is better than cure. It is better to pay to stay healthy rather than to pay to get healthy. The second option always cost you more in fact a recent survey showed that the number 1 reason why people get into money problem is due to high cost in medical or hospitalization bills.

For me, my health is very important and I have taken myself for granted for so many years. I simply ate what I wanted, no exercise, my sleep pattern was erratic and I really did not take any supplement. What happened? Well last month I had the scare of my life when I woke up around 2 am in the morning with some chest pain. I went to the Emergency ward and the doctors thought I had asthma. I told them that this was different. They did an ECG and it showed that I had a heart attack.

Wow! At that point I was scared. Alhamdulillah after a few check ups I am ok. Apparently it was a spasm due to high cholesterol. For a few days I could not sleep and I was very worried. I kept thinking about the after life. I know I'm not ready to face Allah. I kept thinking about my wife and kids. When it happens you really need to look at your life and what has brought you to this point. I made a decision that I want to be healthy!

Now I am on the Herbalife program. First to reduce my weight and reduce my cholesterol. The products are fantastic. They won a noble price for it. 60 million people have benefited from the products. So who am I to argue.

The point that I wanted to share is that after yesterday's meeting I am more convinced that we need to educate ourselves and our family on the importance of taking care of our health. Our lifestyle and the demands of society today is very bad. We really need to look at what we are doing for ourselves.

Alhamdulillah, I have started on the F1 shake again and have lost a few kilos. Did you guys know that according to studies breakfast is the most important meal of the day and that the ideal time for taking breakfast is between 5am until 9am. SubhanAllah, when I heard this it's amazing because that is why in Islam when we fast we need to do our Sahur. Allah knows best and for those who have the wisdom can see this. Taking a meal after 9 am is no longer considered breakfast! Please take note.

I'm also taking the fish oil soft gels which can help reduce my cholesterol and blood pressure. Apparently studies have also shown that it can help you to avoid becoming nyanyok or getting Alzheimer's disease as you grow old.

The most exciting product has to be the NW or Night Works. It can help to promote the NO inside your arteries which will allow for better flow of your blood in your arteries. It is an amazing product especially for all of us to fight the silent killer which is the visceral fat in our bodies. You really need to do a check. At the moment my visceral fat rating is terrible. I'm at 12 and my goal is to to 3. InsyaAllah I believe with Herbalife I can do it!

From now on we want to make it our mission to promote health living for all our family and friends because at the end of the day your health is your wealth. Let's pray to Allah that we will be blessed with health for our mind,body and soul so that we may continue to serve Allah better. InsyaAllah.
