Thank you for browsing my site and joining me for my very first blog entry! I am Diane Turner, owner of Healthy Alternatives. I have been working for the past 30 years to empower women to age gracefully and have peace of mind about their health and their financial future.
I provide valuable information for women who are trying to stay healthy and want to do so the natural way. From PMS to Menopause, Healthy Alternatives is your resource for feeling and looking your best!
At Healthy Alternatives you will find information on how the benefits of a plant-based diet, along with taking the right vitamins, can help protect your bone and heart health, improve your memory, moods and blood sugar, and aid in weight management. I believe in a holistic approach to wellness that includes diet, vitamins, stress management, and reducing exposure to chemicals in your home.
I have been studying whole foods cooking and alternative medicine for 30 years. I was introduced to Shaklee products for my family when I was pregnant with my older son, who just turned 29! (How does it happen that they grow up so quickly?) At that time I had been looking for a safe, earth-friendly laundry detergent and a friend recommended Shaklee laundry products. They worked so much better than the perfume-filled detergents I was buying from the grocery store. After a month or two of taking Shaklee vitamins, I noticed a big difference in my energy, mood, hair, skin, and nails.
When I discovered Shaklee, I had been looking for a way to work from home so I could be with my 2 sons full time. In 1987, I launched Healthy Alternatives. It was and has continued to be the most wonderful decision for my family. In just my second year, I was earning more in 20 hours a week than I had been making in my former full time career as a Montessori Teacher.
What I love most about my business is that I am constantly learning and growing. I have the great privilege of being part of a dynamic team of entrepreneurs who all support each other to have fun and be wildly successful! If you would like to learn if a career like mine could be just what you’ve been looking for, you can find more information here or contact me . I’d love to talk with you!
