It makes me wonder though, what hard sell has brainwashed her into deceiving others? En el año , Hughes falleció a la edad de 44 años debido a una mezcla de alcohol y un medicamento llamado doxepin.

The siege of Herbalife

She replied to say she will get product out asap. Wednesday came I still had nothing. By now I am talking myself out of this whole healthy thing we know it take motivation to want to lose weight.

Thursday I have message her asking where the products are. I was told she was still waiting on them. She replied that's fine send her my bank details as she will need to process refund now because in the evening she was going on holiday for 2 weeks. I tried another seller and was told as I've used someone else before I can't use them. Now 2 months later messaged and placed an order. She had the nerve to call me and say I wanted to check your definitely going to use the product and not cancel again Well I again have paid for postage so ask her to post products to me was a Thursday so I can start on Monday.

She told me that's fine. She will come and see me Monday today to take measurements and have a chat, and that I can drop her off at her house so I can see where she lives in-case I ever need to know.

Monday morning I get a text saying she hopes I have an amazing week, and how she will bring the products with her after 4 pm! I've replied saying I thought we agreed they would get posted so I can start today, she replied saying she sent products to her friend and royal mail have lost them and she should've messaged me to let know she wasn't posting them. It feels like all the seller want is your money.

I have expressed how annoyed I am. As there's always something. Wish me luck if these product's turn up. I requested a refund from Herbalife due to the fact I had an adverse reaction to their products. I'm being told it takes up to 4 weeks to do a refund. How in the world is this possible when it only takes them a few seconds to debit your account when you become a member. They received their product back a week ago and I haven't heard anything else from them. This company is very shady and their distributors are no better.

They push these products and make you believe that they are best products in the world. They lie like a rug to get you to purchase them. The distributors are wolves in sheep clothing. I will never ever do business with this company again. I lost 13 pounds in 3 months. I changed my lifestyle.

No diets so I was not hungry or without energy. I started using Herbalife products before. I never thought it worked but now I can only recommend it. Be warned and do not believe the 30 day money back guarantee that they advertise as this is completely untrue.

I bought the products and used them for a week but throughout I had a reaction to them and suffered massive stomach pains, I was very unwell and my doctor advised me to stop taking them.

I am still waiting for my refund and she now refuses to give me my money back, I have called the customer services number and no one got back to me after they said 48 hours.

This is literally the worst experience I have had. The products themselves are also very dangerous so take them with caution, there are so many ingredients in there that don't even make sense, you are better off following the body reset diet which is natural smoothies which are a balanced meal none of this radioactive crap!!

I found this product to be extremely helpful. I have a motor neuron disease and am physically unable to maintain exercise programs due to other health issues, including epidermolysis bullosa simplex and PCOS etc. None of the diets recommended by doctors or specialists were having any results. I spoke to a nutritionist and a weight specialist and they both said they were sorry, but it seemed that I could survive on a peanut and there was little hope to lose weight.

These diets and processes were costly and disappointing. I decided to try this product after the birth of my child, it was breastfeeding friendly and instead of gaining a kg per week as on other diet programmes, I lost a kg per week. I had so much energy and felt great. I have had to stop purchasing this product however as it is not affordable. If you have the income to support it, it's fantastic. Worth every penny if you can afford it. But I watched others without my health issues shed easily 10 kg in the first month and feel great for it.

I found the consultant I dealt with to be money oriented and it made me uncomfortable. I later met another consultant that was lovely and in the business for the right reasons. This fellow in totally unprofessional, arrogant, ill-mannered. He is a cheat of the highest degree and sells these products at very exorbitant rates compared to other associates.

If confronted, never returns them. Even forcefully sells its products and hardly picks the phone when tried to return them. These Herbalife guys are cheats. Product is good but the associates are very cunning and money minded. I gave money for a product with one associate in Bangalore and he never delivered the product. I stopped the product itself and moved to Amway. Else you need to be an associate yourself but it is not worth it. I have done business with Herbalife for many years. Their customer service has gone way downhill in the last year.

My credit card company kept blocking my order so I tried to change the card on Herbalife's system but it did not work on the recording. I was told that it could not be changed. The order was blocked five more times. Herbalife did not even call to let me know. I finally got them to change it but the next month they used my old card and the result was it was blocked again.

You would think I could get help. I waited 30 minutes for a supervisor who then changed the card but I was told my order would take a while to get. They refused to send it out in a quicker way even though it was their fault.

I am considering using another company. Thanks for letting me air this complaint. Herbalife is a good product. The formula one, which is your meal supplement, taste more like smoothie than a diet shake. In overall the products are of good quality.

If you take as recommended you should have results. I lost 40lbs my first round, it is a lifestyle change but the results are great. The people who sell it can be a bit pushy but if you overlook that and get to know the products offered you can understand why it has been in business over 30 years. I tried to support my friend by buying some product. She was close to throwing all her products away since she could not sell it. She spent thousands of dollars and was stuck with the inventory.

As for me, I had rectal bleeding for 2 days. I went to my doctor and he couldn't figure out why and we decided to go back to the same diet before Herbalife and my rectal bleeding went away. I told my friend and she did not believe me and gave me some meal replacement.

I was reluctant to take it but tried it again. After two days I was urinating blood and my hemorrhoids returned. I broke out with blisters on my lips. My friend who sold me the product told me her aunt was urinating blood as well so I don't think it was a coincidence.

Please avoid this product as much as possible. I need urgently to be help by Herbalife USA as my membership is from there, when I came to South Africa try changing address and send all documents necessary but they insisted that I need it IRS number which I don't have here. So just like that no more option were given to do transfer.

And now I'm about to lose even the faculty to buy because they ask me to listen to a training in the Training Center with we don't have access in this location. So no more Herbalife for me??? It's incredible after almost 12 years of giving to a company. I was Get Team and this situation only discourages us to try building a business here as was no point. I have always defend Herbalife as I had so good time in Latino America but sad to see a lot of what is sale to promote business as wild wide opportunity is not true!!!

I bought some products online from Herbal Canada distributor and I didn't receive it for long period of time hours base on the site. In the web, there isn't any option for contact like fishing sites except an email address never heard back. When I called main office in Montreal, they couldn't do anything and they confess they don't have any authority or power to do anything. I strongly recommend to prevent putting your time, money and mind on pressure for nothing.

I was kg after 2 months, lost 14kg. My father use this shake for control blood sugar. His body weight is idle, only controls blood sugar. It means there is no side effect in this product. Herbalife products are very good for my family.

Herbalife has decent shakes and their teas are good, but the group of people in this business are immature and uneducated! They are selfish and it is all about making money for themselves and not to actually help people with their health issues.

I've been doing Herbalife for only a week now and it's amazing how much energy I have. I NEVER exercise but since I've been doing the shakes twice a day and the tea, which I think helps the most, I've been running about three miles a day and hiking in the mornings. I don't have a scale so I'm not sure if I've lost any weight but I do know that I feel really good and confident and my skin hasn't been breaking out as much I have really bad acne.

Also, it all tastes delicious! Update on my review concerning the Herbalife supplements. After a visit to my primary care doctor, I learned that some of the supplements I was using were interacting with the prescription drugs I was taking.

While I still am not convinced my friends are actually going to make any money in this business, the supplements are actually good. Some supplements can cause bad interactions with certain drugs.

I have been using Herbalife products on and off for a few years. But, I watched my friends and family members go broke while the "big guys" in this company made money hand over fist! Since starting these products, my energy and mood greatly diminished. At first, I didn't link this to Herbalife. But, before starting Herbalife, I ate sensibly, took a few Ayurvedic herbal tinctures, and exercised vigorously times a week. My hair was thick and lustrous, and I felt the best I have felt in my life!

After about a year or so on the products, however, I noticed my energy levels were declining, my hair was falling out, and I started having problems with my digestion again. Upon further review of the ingredients in these products, I saw they had a lot of artificial ingredients in them. I have spent a fortune on these products, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to throw them away and go back to my simple lifestyle; eating a healthy, well-balanced diet, along with vigorous exercise, and meditation practices.

Sadly, I feel as though I have lost a lot of ground not to mention money. It will take a lot of time to get my hair back in shape, and my fitness level back to where it used to be. Herbalife's customer service is extremely lacking, too.

They would take forever to deliver my products and didn't even send me an email letting me know they had been shipped. I am so sad and disappointed with this whole experience. I joined Herbalife in January this year, got on trial package on 10th. I lost inches, I felt amazing, they were very positive. I didn't lost anything but water weight, which happened because I started eating right.

Everything was great, I became a member in March, or end of February, I'm not sure. I wasn't sure if I wanted to do it as a business or just stay a VIP client, my mentor, as they call themselves, tricked me into getting into business.

I most definitely spend dollars, more or less, in 4 months. I did see progress, but that was because of healthier diet, not the shake.

I started getting hungry, they told me to get proteins to add to the shake, so I did. It tasted sweet, now it started tasting like it got bad. Then they told me to get aloe, I did and added it to my tea, I couldn't drink tea without aloe anymore. I doubt it's a healthy product, and I tell you this as a distributor, as it contains artificial sugars which have a bad impact of your brain from what I know. But all that aside, the club and the team It was great at first, but I decided to also find tips and workouts online since we only had boot camp twice a week and no one there knew anything about right dieting, so I looked at websites of certified dietitians and nutritionists, and found other kinds of workouts, which makes me think my mentor didn't greet with enthusiasm, her ego is prevailing.

I didn't ask her to help me with anything too much, I knew what I was doing and if something wasn't clear I asked, and I didn't go to the STS because I was sick, after which I felt she is keeping me there for volumes.

I started distancing myself from them. My boyfriend visited and we went to see them, all they asked him about was Herbalife. And all their stories come down to or are about Herbalife. I am all for loving something and enjoying it, but it's consuming people, my sister-in-law is celebrating my niece's birthday a week early so she can attend the STS this month.

And the products are making me sick now, I switched to regular food and eating frequently, doing everything I did except not using Herbalife anymore and I feel great. All they wanted from me were volumes and money, I got nothing from them. I also "won" a spa day which I still didn't get and I won a t-shirt which I didn't get. I am attending my last event on Sunday and only because I won the pizza party which is occurring after the event, so pizza is the only reason haha.

After that, I'm done with them, done with Herbalife. It's a waste of money. There are so many fit and healthy people out there who are using real, clean food. If they can do it, I can do it. All these promises of trips and obsessing over things they "won" makes me sick. Also, trips they win, they paid for in a way because they have to buy products to collect volumes to qualify. So I don't understand how someone can be so brainwashed.

I have had a good experience with using the Herbalife products but I do not do the business. At first I didn't know if I could give up solid food at breakfast, and I don't always give it up, but I surely do enjoy my routine of having a cup of coffee in the morning and then a nice shake to start the day. I have to admit, I add things to the shake like peanut butter, a banana, or a squirt of flavoring that you use in water bottles to mix it up every now and then.

I am 55 and truly feel like my body responds very well to the Formula One Shakes products. My skin is very healthy, my weight is staying balanced, I have minimal menopause issues, and regarding my hair, I feel like it is thicker than it's ever been. I see that's peculiar because I've read some reviews where people's hair was actually falling out following using the products.

I do not like the tea and don't even like the aloe so I pretty much stick with my shakes and the multivitamin. It's a simple plan but it works for me. When I started on the Herbalife products. The first thing I noticed was headaches and itching. I was breaking out in hives so bad I couldn't sleep at night. Then my hair started to fall out. I call my coach. She told me that it's nothing she can do about it. Then the phone call ended from her, but when I was spending money with her she call me twice a week.

I had to end up getting my hair cut like a boy. And that is depressing. I'm not use of short hair like this. Very unhealthy and expensive.

My husband, daughter, and I all was using Herbalife. It was ok for the first 2 weeks. Then I started having stomach pains. I let my coach know, which in return she said to take something else that was Herbalife. My Hair started falling out and I let my doctor know. I was told to stop using Herbalife, since then I am not have the stomach pains and my hair is starting to fall out less.

Avoid at all cost! I tried the product for 3 weeks. Herbalife respondió a la decisión de Bélgica al afirmar que "Herbalife cree que la sentencia contiene errores de hecho y se basa en interpretaciones erróneas de la ley y de su modelo de ventas directas. El 20 de diciembre de , Bill Ackman de Pershing Square Capital Management presentó una serie de argumentos que describen por qué su firma cree que Herbalife opera un "sofisticado esquema piramidal".

Ackman afirmó que los distribuidores de Herbalife "obtienen principalmente sus beneficios monetarios del reclutamiento en lugar de la venta de bienes y servicios a los consumidores". Herbalife respondió a la presentación de Ackman diciendo que "la presentación de hoy fue un ataque malicioso al modelo de negocio de Herbalife basada en gran parte en información obsoleta, distorsionada e inexacta.

Herbalife no es un esquema piramidal ilegal". El 15 de julio de , se cerraron las investigaciones y se le ordena reestructurar sus operaciones en Estados Unidos y pagar un acuerdo extrajudicial por millones de dólares, sin embargo, logró no ser clasificada bajo un esquema piramidal. A su vez, debe modificar la forma como le paga a sus vendedores. La directora de la FTC Edith Ramírez dijo que Herbalife va a tener que empezar a funcionar legítimamente haciendo afirmaciones veraces sobre la cantidad de dinero que sus miembros podrían ganar.

Herbalife ha engañado a cientos de miles de personas esperanzadas con la creencia de que podían hacerse ricos. Herbalife International , se acusa a la compañía de no asistir en forma correcta a sus distribuidores en cuestiones de marketing, negocios y fraude, mientras que en Mey vs. Frente a esto, los directivos de Herbalife sostienen tener defensas procedentes en ambos casos.
