We love Brooke, Dr. Matthew and the whole 360YourLife™ team! My wife Ivy and I have been health and wellness professionals for over a decade and we know how important it is to educate people on how to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle. My interest in nutrition was sparked by Ivy’s diagnosis with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 1998 and the change she made in her diet has given her back her life. 360YourLife™ is a tremendous resource of articles, videos, programs and more and we highly recommend Brooke and her team. It’s never too late to escape the cycle of unhealthy living and change your life for the better, and 360YourLife.com is a great place to start!

Working with Brooke – has made dramatic changes in the way my family eats & feels. For starters I used to have stomach issues several times a week and doctors said it was irritable bowel syndrome which is common for people with stressfull lives but never offered up any solutions. Brooke was able to pinpoint some common food items that I was eating that triggered my issue and by making small changes like reducing dairy & going gluten free, I am so happy to say that I have eliminated my stomach problems. I never feel bloated anymore. Secondly Brooke educated me on the importance of vitamins, good vitamins, not the kind with fillers. My family never took any vitamins and we started taking Shaklee vitamins, drinking Shaklee shakes, using the Shaklee protein powder in the foods we cook & I began using the Shaklee face & eye creams. We have been very pleased with all of the products and feel that it is very important to incorporate these items into our daily routine in support of prolonged health. One of the most important things I learned from Brooke is how to interpret labels of food & beverages while grocery shopping. The packaging is so deceiving, great marketing on the front of everything and I used to rely on that which is very eye catching. However taking a few more minutes to turn packages over and read the ingredients was eye opening for me. I first had to learn what some of the negative ingredients were so that I could recognize them. Once again I was totally shocked to find harmful ingredients, preservatives & artificial colors and flavors in many of the foods I used to consider healthy. Even in foods that are directly marketed as being healthy. I am very disappointed in what gets approved by the FDA & our government as edible. I always figured we lived in the best country in the world and had the best food supply in the world. Well I could not have been more wrong and now needed to take things into my own hands. With Brooke’s help I feel empowered.

Since meeting Brooke and the 360YourLife™ team not only has my life taken on a major transformation but so has my families. As a whole we’ve lost weight, ditched the doctor co-pays for sick visits and the never ending cycle of medications. We traded that constant feeling of fatigue for more energy than I know what to do with, reversed a hairloss battle and even have gotten off of heart medications! It’s amazing the difference in your health when you give your body proper nutrition that it needs. The 360YourLife™ team has also taught me that the vitamins I was taking were mostly synthetic and had very low absorption rates. Fish and meats that I thought were rich in healthy proteins, actually originated from factory farms that use supplements, GMO’s, steroids and foster deplorable conditions. The fruit that looks so fresh and clean from my supermarket is actually covered in chemicals and grown thousands of miles away.
I feel so fortunate to have found Brooke and 360YourLife™. After dealing with my sons sensory issues and ADHD for the past 5 years we are finally seeing some improvements since we changed his diet and added vitamins and supplements. I really used to think we ate healthy until the 360YourLife™ team taught our family about “real” food and how important good proteins are.
Over the past 6 months, my family has had a health “awakening” and it has truly changed our lives. We have two young children and for the last 6 years we fed them what we thought was a healthy diet. We always had fruits and vegetables (which I now know were covered in pesticides that do not wash off with water), ate lean meats (which I now know were pumped full of antibiotics), and foods that most people consider healthy such as yogurt, cereal, applesauce … (which I now know that some of these brands are full of food dyes, artificial sweeteners, chemicals, excessive sugar, additives and preservatives – scary!) We ate healthy most of the time so felt having “less than healthy” foods on special occassions or when we were out doing something fun was of no consequence. We were wrong. This fall I had an opportunity to attend a presentation by Dr. Matt on Brooke’s 360YourLife Team, who completely changed how we view food. I learned some foods we purchase contain harmful chemicals, many are being genetically modified and these foods are not just unheathy but they are dangerous to our body. I was truly horrified by what I heard and immediately went through our refrigerator and pantry! This inspired me to learn more. I read books, I researched on the computer and I started asking questions. Children are capable of understanding and developing the desire to be healthy. My children did not fight our change in eating and have even been known to turn down treats when offered. They talk frequently about healthy foods and what those foods do for our bodies and they are both very physically active. They also talk about “fake foods” and the role of marketing to get people to buy these foods even though they are bad for us. We have seen an amazing impact on our quality of life since we have overhauled our diet. One of our children who struggled with paying attention and getting in trouble for talking in class is no longer challanged by these situations. I have experienced relief from chronic pain and stomach issues. While on this journey, I reflected on my childhood – not many conversations were held regarding health, nutrition, and exercise. I decided that things would be different in my family. By teaching my children how food effects their bodies and minds, they will want to make good choices because they will know it makes them feel better, it makes them better students, it makes them better athletes and it will reduce their chance of serious illnesses in their lifetimes. And in turn, they will teach their children the same life lesson. We now look for organic or all natural products. We have also limited our exposure to chemicals found in household products by purchasing those containing natural ingredients. We have made good health a family matter and we will continue to educate ourselves.
Thank goodness for social media..that’s how I was introduced to what 360 Your Life and Shaklee was all about!! Having known Brooke for a couple years- I didn’t really know much about her business until one day on Facebook I saw someone comment something about CINCH(now known as Shaklee 180)…I commented to Brooke saying “what’s Cinch? I need to know more!” and from that one comment I posted I received an education on much more than just the products-as well as a life style change in terms of diet and nutrition…Brooke is a very motivational – super passionate person about nutrition and all that Shaklee 180 and 360 your life can do for you! Through her business, 360 Your Life…I learned how to shop for the healthiest alternatives with her Grocery Guide and got a makeover for my pantry..which still is a work in progress as I continually find yummy alternatives to the junk foods that used to fill my cabinets!! Since August of 2012 I have used the Shaklee Vitalizer vitamins in addition to enjoying the Shaklee shakes and have seen and FELT great improvements in my body-everyone seems to have that stubborn 5-10 lbs they want to get rid of…while nothing is a miracle cure…I truly believe Brooke’s teachings in conjunction with using the Shaklee products helped me to lose almost 10 lbs without feeling like I’m dieting…but more than anything-I feel like if I cant turn back time..at least my body is “refreshed” going into the future!!!
I know you have probably been inundated with e-mails from our MOPS group after your very well-received talk recently. I just wanted you know from me, personally, that your presentation was probably the favorite of our year! Thank you so very much for sharing your knowledge with us 🙂 On a personal note, I took very seriously what you said about how diet affects behavior/mood. I came home and started thinking about my oldest son–who is EXTREMELY picky–and his behavior of late. He has gone from an easy-going child to one prone to crazy mood swings. I had an inkling, after your talk, that it could possibly related to his diet. So, I proclaimed to my husband that “I am the gatekeeper of the pantry! And, as the gatekeeper, I am no longer buying crap (pardon my language!) for the kids to snack on. If you want to eat it, you’ll have to go buy it yourself and keep it out of sight”. The very next day, I purged the pantry, made a BJs run and a Trader Joe’s run and immediately changed what I offered my family. We have always done whole grain breads and pasta, but I went further and replaced our rice with whole grain rice, our milk with organic, and our meats with organic/non-GMO meats. And, after just ONE day, I noticed a complete change in my oldest child. It was like a light switch! He wasn’t moody or angry at all! I could hardly believe it. But, I am sold! Thank you so much for pointing out what was so obvious I couldn’t see it 🙂 I am sure that you will be invited to speak again next year to our MOPS group, but in the meantime, please keep me posted on your presentations and workshops. Again, thank you for the valuable insight!
Brooke and 360YourLife have been such a wonderful inspiration to me and my family as well as great resources used to improve our lives. I have always been interested in health and nutrition, so when I heard about Brooke’s 28-Day Challenge I was ready and excited to learn something new. I started the challenge at my own pace and realized that even baby steps towards living a less toxic lifestyle was benefitting us greatly! Brooke is fun, encouraging, and keeps things simple. Her recipes are amazing and have become favorites in our home! I love sharing her tips with my friends and family, and I’m always looking forward to what she comes up with next!
