SEO Reputation Management at its best!

Dr. Kelly Sennholz unfortunately, has turned into a USANA robot. Her primary concern is with signing up Doctors (and reps to work under her) struggling in this bad economy that have Med-Spas, or the likes thereof. She understands how to "fill up the legs" of USANA MLM business model. She has personal issues and may not be able to practice as a Doctor. Thus, she has become a USANA rep. She apparently makes USANA money as long as everyone buys the over priced bars, shakes and supplements. Dr. Sennholz makes Big Flase promises for reps and Drs. to make $55K in 3-4 months! If it sounds too good to be true, it is UNTRUE! Her best line is "Drs will increase their bottom line by 6 figures!" (caveat is; "if you follow my program"...which is IMPOSSIBLE!)

USANA has a big claim to fame for Doctors by claiming they manufacture pharmaceutical grade products. In reality, many quality supplements are sold that are made to pharmaceutical standards.

Add up the USANA shipping and taxes and you are paying about $3.50 per bar weighs .45 grams or less- it doesn't even deliver 1/3 of your the recommended daily allowance of nutrition. Have it 3 times a day as USANA recommends for their pharmaceutical grade product and Dr. Kelly Sennholz's physician-directed program...sounds like a great deal- and you'll have perfect health-NOT! SCAMMER! Bait-and-Switch!

You are better off buying a "Cliff Bar", the ingredients are higher quality and you will exceed or meet your daily nutritional value for one serving too! A Cliff Bar Cost $1.00 on sale, maybe $1.49- when not on sale and you pay no shipping and USANA paying for everybody on Dr. Kelly Sennholz's down line either!

That's right, EVERYBODY must get paid in Usana-that's how it works! Inflate the prices 3 times and WE can pay everyone---Ooops, what's that? Oh, as long as YOU SIGN UP and order a minimum of $200.00 every month!

If Sennholz signs up a desperate Dr- according to Dr. Kelly Sennholz; ALL DRs are desperate for business, as she well knows, that is why she got rid of her med-spa- she charges them a BIG fat $3,900+-for the USANA/Simple Vitality Program to sell their patients- because Doctors are accustomed to having to pay large amounts to make money off of their patients!

Her fee is a drop in the bucket comparatively speaking. They pay that $3,900+- to her Callisto Global Health. It's an arms reach away from USANA direct sign up and it's all done through her and her company. ALWAYS BE CAREFUL WHEN SOMEONE (Dr Kelly Sennholz) WANTS EVERYONE IN YOUR PRACTICE'S SOCIAL SECURITY # and credit card #s!!!!!

What does the Dr who signs up for Simple Vitality get for that money? Sennholz doesn't know! -She's appears as if she is so busy, those details escape her. The Dr. will get about (no one is sure) 15 boxes of a USANA "RESET" kit to hand over to his patients who want to loose weight and or get healthy.

Those "5 Day RESET" kits are $99+- each - thru USANA!!!(Remember the Dr just paid Dr. Kelly Sennholz $3,900+-for USANA products that actually cost about $1,500!!!) When the Dr. signs up the patient, that patient must pay $600+- to sign up for USANA (anybody hearing SCAMMER?) which they could go directly to USANA and pay $19.99+- to become a rep and get a discount!

Dr. Kelly Sennholz gets the money for every patient that signs up (From the $600 she makes off of her scam there is $500 PROFIT after the RESET product is handed over to the poor uneducated person) The Dr. is promised within weeks of signing up people, that Dr will start getting his USANA paychecks!
Dr. Sennholz has "an internet" based company (http://www.callistohealth.org) and it's basically, like bottom feeding off of uneducated people, doctors included.

Dr. Kelly Sennholz is a very busy USANA REP, not a busy Doctor. Ask her a direct question! Ask for example, what products does Callisto's Simply Vitality program use, ask her why??- Is USANA a MLM? State that's what you have read online (Hint do your on line research!). Ask her why she diliberately does NOT mention USANA on her www.callistohealth.org website! Ask her what Drs are signed up and successful with her program-ask for names, numbers for references.

Prepare to be patient, she doesn't like interruptions, she will give you a 15-minute song and dance -pony show story and NEVER answer that question. She will throw out all these people's names-as if you know them and of course you don't! It's called name-dropping and if everyone she tells you about is doing it, it's fine! (HER STORIES ARE ALSO HER WAY OF CONTROLLING A SITUATION)

When called out on her lack of directness and not answering the question, she will act offended that you sat right there and listened to her "story" and she DID answer the question, it's all your fault. You were not paying attention. One would think BECAUSE she is a Doctor she would have more of a professional demeanor, but she doesn't.
If you disagree with her, she has a website for you to visit, because she really REALLY is a fan of yours and thinks you're great.

Money made by Dr. Kelly Sennohlz; after product costs are subtracted out; profits are: $2,400 from the poor Dr and $500 from each patient that signs up!

Regardless of what happens, She just made a quick, cool $2900 if the Dr. even signs up one of his office staff!

LOOK UP USANA SCAMS! The Dr's name and reputation are on the line with his entire practice.

The Dr. pays Dr. Sennholz's company Callisto Global Health (sounds legit) so Dr. Sennholz can (as she so cleverly created it) state, "no, this is not MLM, this is a B2B sale. However, Callisto Global Health is only a B2B front for Dr. Sennholz and her USANA business so she can take advantage of unassuming people.

The people who sign up are basically sold on loosing weight and becoming healthier, but they don't realize they go on USANA autoship and get charged monthly on their credit card over $200-$300 per month! They could order from a variety of other companies online and get better products and pay 1/2 the price!

Sad that an educated woman doctor has reduced herself to this.

China's Nu Skin probe drags down USANA and Herbalife too. BigBlueRobot.com Attempts to create more victims by spinning the truth

AUTHOR: Salty Droid - ()

Nu Skin shares shed a third of their market value by Thursday afternoon. Shares of nutritional supplements maker Herbalife, fell 10 percent, while those of USANA Health Sciences were down 12 percent.

Xinhua news agency said the State Administration for Industry and Commerce (SAIC) ordered local authorities to investigate a report, alleging Nu Skin had been exaggerating its influence and creditworthiness in brochures and organizing "brainwashing" gatherings.

Short sellers and other critics have accused companies such as Herbalife, USANA and Nu Skin of running illegal pyramid-type schemes, questioning their distribution model where distributors make money not only from their own sales, but also from those by people they recruit to become distributors themselves.

In 2012, short seller Andrew Left's Citron Research said Nu Skin's direct-selling business in China was actually "pyramid-selling" and was illegal under Chinese law.

He accused USANA of the same practices in 2013.

The most publicized attack against a nutritional products maker and distributor came from activist investor Bill Ackman, who accused Herbalife in December 2012 of running a pyramid scheme and took a $1 billion short position in the company.

Short sellers make money when the stock price of a company drops. They sell borrowed shares in the hope of buying them back at a lower price and return them to the lender, and gain from the difference in price.

Xinhua, China's state news agency, quoted on Thursday an SAIC spokesman as saying the administration would take legal steps against any violations if the probes showed the media reports were factual.

"We are aware that Chinese regulators have now initiated investigations to review issues raised by recent news reports," Nu Skin said in a statement later in the day.

Herbalife and USANA could not be immediately reached for comment.

The company said the investigation could hurt China revenues, but added that it was too early to say if its previous forecast would be affected.

The company's sales in Greater China more than tripled to $464.6 million in its quarter ended September 30. The region accounted for about half of total sales.

#6 UPDATE EX-employee responds

"Dr" Sennholz uses a lot of words yet says nothing

AUTHOR: The 2nd Denver Investigator - (United States of America)

I read the rebuttle Kelly Sennolz wrote. It's absurd! Any company that makes processed food could say the same thing. USANA has over priced vitamins and supplements, PERIOD! You pay Kelly and her 2 legs of all her down lines. 
The real question is what don't WE REALLY KNOW??? None of this makes any sense at all. Every Multi Level Marketing company out there has reps. Yes, some are Drs too. 

Look at Dr Mercola-look at all the good he truly does for people....nothing like trying to steal money from fellow Drs or their patients. Do you think those patients are a bit PO-ed when they pay $500. to sign up for "the program" and then are charged at LEAST $200 a month to be in the program....which is equal to autoship from USANA-but wait, that JUST happens to be the products Kelly Sennholz uses for her (front) company!

They could go to the Market and have fresh fruits and vegetables for $200 a month to last all month and be healthier!

Try iherb.com-higher quality manufacturers and exactly what you need, not what USANA needs to sell.

Did Kelly Sennolz ever address in her rebuttal why she charges the Drs (she tries to dupe) so much money? She basically admitted she cannot make money as a DR. 
No wonder when they have people preying on them like her! This is a farce, Callisto Simple Vitality.

The poor unassuming Dr she tries to sign up, pays her for what??? The pleasure of doing business with her? Kelly just tell the Dr to sign up for USANA directly-heck, go all out-get that Dr in your down line! Why are you charging them so much money?? 
Oh, that's right, this is business to business and "the Drs are accustomed to being overcharged! They are all looking for ways to make more money"

Any Dr. (office staff) out there reading this...know her "hook" line is... "and very soon we are raising it to $5K ($10K). We will honor that price of $3,900. if you buy now, today." In other words, if you want time to think about it -forget it! Callisto and Simple Vitality have no chance after the dog (Dr being presented to) stops salivating and has time to really think...yep, gotta get them fast, Kelly or they don't bite the hook-no reeling them in-you just like jerking their chains. You have some strange sense of wanting to control everyone and everything/situation. Is that the cult conditioning?

Then the DR charges his poor patient $500 for a $99 USANA 5 day RESET "kit"-it's a nice little tangible box. That's robbery, Kelly!

Any Dr worth their weight can make a living, just being a substitute. Kelly Sennholz could 100% do a preventative practice, but she chooses not to. Maybe she should quit smoking too, if she's so into health and preventative medicine! Why didn't she just sell her program to her own patients? BECAUSE there is NO Doctor  to monitor them-she doesn't want to do it! That's the scam! She simply wants quick, fast cash!

The Dr she WANTS to sign up think it's Kelly Sennholz monitoring his/her patients and running her Callisto Simple Vitality program for his/her patients-natural assumption for the poor Dr. being taken advantage of.

Kelly knows not to say a word-Dang-what was all that money payable to her company (front for USANA) all about -if she doesn't do it, what's the GOOD Dr paying for???? NOTHING!

Auto emails Kelly has and a web site-no one needs.Try (((REDACTED)))!!! JUST AS GOOD if not better!
 
-yeah, that little detail is NEVER discussed unless, the Dr. is really on the ball. Kelly has the Dr side tracked with this ridiculous bait and switch showing him how they can make (the magic number-says Kelly for the DRs to HEAR) six figures...then, that's all they are focused on!!! And that is never going to happen unless they turn into a USANA-Robot too. She will try to hook up all kinds of Drs and other businesses together to help fill those expensive USANA down line legs! Oh, sure, she'll help the DR. NOT!!! She just wants that big initial pay out, because she knows it's all over after that! She wants all the staff to sign up too-promising them additional paychecks, if the front person in Drs office actually signs up patients! And according to Kelly they'll loose weight- most of them need to loose a few pounds-who doesn't? Kelly included.

Another goofy ploy, she opens up one USANA bar and shares it with several people in the Drs office.  Why-if she is so successful doesn't she give each person their own bar? Because the truth comes out! Even Kelly Sennholz knows how expensive those USANA bars are! And we know she is very greedy, that's about $3 person!

Seriously, this woman has no pride and has resorted to this cult like activity-yes, cult-google (verb) USANA + CULT, you'll readily see why she is so skewed. 

LISTEN PEOPLE, if it sounds too good to be true-yep, it probably is untrue! 

#1)
Listen Up Kelly Sennholz, provide names/business names/medical Spas and numbers of those who are here in the Denver area and have been happy with your program for 1 year, that's it- just one year-has anyone hung in for one year???? 

How about you have some of "those" Drs patients write about how fulfilled they feel with your Simple Vitality program! Give me one person, just one! who has been doing it with their Dr for a year!

#2)
Tell us how much money the Drs make and YOU MAKE- scamming their patients for your cover up company Simple Vitality-do you think the Drs actually feel good screwing their patients-when they realize your slick willy program? 

#3)
How many Reps have left YOU and YOUR BOGUS company-Kelly's deal, the first deal goes for the company to prove to us you can do it-how many people quit right then and there? All the rest are YOURS-stupid SH_T rep! That's how Kelly gets people to work for free.

#4)
How much does the Drs office staff make too??? 

#5)
How many people have dumped you???- that want nothing further to do with you-we know at least 8 because they felt scammed! How many people did you sign up for USANA and they dumped you-try telling the truth! That's why this game of yours never ends. Always looking for the next target....

and here's a tip, we aren't interested in any more info from your USANA bots cronies. Talk about YOUR program not USANA. With all your words...say something concise and direct about the issues here (1-5)....try not to ramble, I know it's hard, just try. 

sorry, allowing you to give a competitors name would instigate others to just file against their competition, to only come back later to suggest their company your comments on this policy are welcome!

If You Want the Truth...

AUTHOR: Simple Vitality - (USA)

As a practicing physician and completing almost 30 years in the medical field, having been honored for my dedication and expertise, history of being board certified in both Internal Medicine and Emergency Medicine, and never having been sued (which is a RARE thing, indeed), I find the need to factually express the content and intention of our business.  
 
After working for decades in clinical emergency medicine, it became exquisitely clear that modern medicine does a very good job at what I call "ill care" and is less than thorough in wellness medicine, or "health care". 

 

There seems to be a lack of educational opportunities for traditional medical practitioners in the concepts and science of wellness medicine.  Additionally, there is not a payment mechanism for doctors to be able to support this area within their practices.

 

As has been extensively reported in the press over at least the last two years, the medical industry is highly focused on pharmaceutical interventions, surgeries and technological advances.

 

The concepts of wellness medicine have not been applied for many reasons. Not only is there a lack of education and understanding regarding scientific principles of supporting a patient's general health but there is an almost complete lack of financial support for doctors who want to help their patients with wellness medicine, such as payment for well visits.

 

Efforts are currently being undertaken to turn the tide in this regard, but I fear it will be decades before the ability of a physician to support a patient in disease avoidance is adequately funded to the point of intervention.
 
I would like to share an overview of what we do in our business and why we know it is important.
 

Our program utilizes scientific principles based on rigorous prospective studies, clinical experience and the work of the top experts in the industry. Patients who enroll in our program are taken from where they are, physically, and moved slowly and gradually to the establishment of healthy lifestyle habits. We achieve this through various mechanisms including: personalized coaching, progressive and entertaining educational and interactive classes, transmittance of understandable and fun science-based health habits, group communication and coaching, nutritionally sound interventional tools and a host of other tools and skills.
 
The best thing about our program is not only is the doctor able to provide excellent wellness direction for their patients, not only is the patient able to take small, significant steps towards a lifelong pattern of healthy choices, but the patient will actually SAVE money over the course of a year.   There are many reasons for this, including potential deductibility, transference of costs of daily living to their health program and decreased spending on food consumption, but also statistically significant out of pocket savings have been documented for patients maintaining a healthy lifestyle.    Our estimates are patients will save over $600 the first year with ongoing savings after that.  Not bad for a program that improves health, too!
 
Many of the most esteemed health programs in the country utilize a shake and bar portion of their program because it has been statistically demonstrated to work.  Our choice of Usana Health Sciences was rigorously researched.  Some of the reasons include:
 
1.  Product portions of our program replicate seminal studies completed by Dr. Ray Stand

2.  Usana provides the top rated nutritional in the independently evaluated "Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements" by Nutrisearch.  This text is an independent, ongoing study of nutritional supplements in North America.  Usana has not only rated as the top nutritional in every edition, but is the most cost effective of the top rated nutritionals.  (www.comparativeguide.com)
3.  Usana carries a line of nutritionals featured in the Physician's Desk Reference (the REAL PDR, not the over the counter PDR).  This reference is the most consulted reference on pharmaceuticals by physicians.
4.  Choice of Olympians: only company to my knowledge to offer a million dollar guarantee to Olympic athletes that they won't test positive for banned substances (a testament to the quality and purity of these products)
5.  Manufactured according to the strictest Pharmaceutical GMP standards (not common, as poster states)

6.  Usana's research team collaborates with the Linus Pauling Institute (LPI)  on cutting edge nutritional and clinical research.  The LPI is one of the foremost nutrition research facilities in the country.  LPI was one of the first two research organizations in the nation, along with Harvard University, to be designated by the NIH as a center of excellence for research on complementary and alternative medicine.

7.  . Usana spends over $400 Million a year in research and development for their products.  There is no way we could independently replicate this level of commitment and financial dedication. 
 
Poster's statistics regarding costs, etc are inaccurate.  It is clear he has not completed our program.  In addition, due to multiple innuendos, such as posting a non-working phone number for our business, leading people to think we are out of business, it is clear the intention of this poster was not educational.
