The Redwines’ Story-Building a Dream Team

All it took for Milton Redwine was to try his first Spark.  He heard about AdvoCare at the gym while he and Chelsea were working out.  He was excited about the opportunity, but Chelsea was hesitant. She said AdvoCare sounded great, but they couldn’t afford Spark.

Both Milton and Chelsea worked nights and weekends to pay the bills and support their three-year-old daughter.  Their mentor suggested they share the products with others and earn enough money to pay for their own products.  Eighteen days and three mixers(small group meetings) later, they earned enough to purchase two 24-Day Challenges and began the Challenge right away. Together they lost 35 pounds in the first 60 days with the help of AdvoCare products and lifestyle changes.

The Redwines quickly saw a vision to earn extra money, but saw more than that after attending meetings and business trainings.  They set up three-way conference calls and began hosting one to three mixers per week, both for newcomers and alongside Advisors on their team, to promote their AdvoCare brand.  They also met regularly with their mentors to set a business strategy, which they still do today.

By eliminating distractions, prioritizing personal growth and always focusing on helping newcomers find the right products for their lifestyle, the couple continues to grow heir eam and have been able to leave heir full-time jobs.  They now have two little girls to keep them busy, and Chelsea and Milton are taking in every moment as it comes.

 

 

Over the Counter Pain Medications

My husband just had some lab work done last week, and we found out that he had high protein counts in his urine and his liver enzymes were high.  He hardly ever drinks, so we know that alcohol was not a factor in his liver damage.  He takes Advil at night, and we discovered that that could have an effect on the liver.  Here are some other side effects on over the counter pain medications:

  • Acetaminophen (Tylenol)
    • Nausea
    • Rash
    • Liver Damage
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (such as Advil, Aleve, and Motrin)
    • Stomach upset
    • Heartburn
    • Nausea
    • Stomach Ulcers
    • Kidney Damage
    • Allergic Reaction
    • Liver Damage
    • Increased Risk of Heart Attack and Stroke

No one younger than 20 should take aspirin.  It has been linked to Reye Syndrome, a very serious illness. It causes swelling in the liver and brain.

Some safe alternatives to over the counter pain medications are:

  • Ginger is an anti-inflammatory.
  • Tumeric is an anti-inflammatory and can help reduce the risk of cancer.
  • Capsaicin is derived from chili peppers and is a topical remedy that reduces nerve, muscle and joint pain.
  • Valerian root helps relieve insomnia, tension, irritability, stress, and anxiety.
  • Magnesium can help curb the pain of migraines, muscle spasms and fibromyalgia.
  • Cat’s Claw is known for containing an anti-inflammatory agent that aids in blocking the production of the hormone prostaglandin, which contributes to inflammation and pain within the body.
  • Boswellia contains active components like resin that reduce inflammation and pain.
  • White willow bark is the original aspirin.
  • Essential oils such as chamomile, lavender, and sage help relax muscles and calm the mind.
