Xtend-Life’s Total Balance - Unisex

April 10th, 2006

The degeneration of our essential organs is why most of us will die from a viral infection, cancer, a stroke, or Heart Disease! This is why we MUST address the cause of organ degeneration and help prevent us from becoming a victim of these or other preventable illnesses!

Our family of Total Balance products was designed to help achieve this in conjunction with sensible lifestyle and dietary choices. Six years ago our Research & Development department, under the direction of Prof. Dr A. Munem Daoud PhD., MSc., ND, developed a ‘foundation’ supplement that is considered by many experts to be the best in the world.

Since 1999 we have revised the formula several times in line with the latest PROVEN scientific knowledge! We are now on our 4th generation version which is an advanced professional product containing around 80 nutrients, some of which are rarely found in ‘normal’ supplements because of cost and the need to use them with a sophisticated delivery system (L-Glutathione is an example of one of these nutrients as unless it is released in the upper intestine the stomach acids render it ineffective).

We solve the problem in Total Balance (and some of our other products) by utilizing a sophisticated delivery system called enteric coating. This releases all the nutrients in the upper intestine and ensures all are 100% bio-available.

The three Total Balance versions are called:

Total Balance Unisex…which is suitable for teenagers or young adults or older women (+ 70) Total Balance Womens Plus…which is suitable for Women 30+ Total Balance Mens Plus…which is suitable for Men 30+

Total Balance Unisex

To ensure that all our customers could get the best value for money and greatest effectiveness in one product it was necessary to produce three different formulations. Our bodies need different nutrients depending on whether we are male or female and on our age group.

For example, an 18 year old male does not need to have his testosterone stimulated! However a 50 year old man may well need the appropriate nutrients to help prevent his testosterone being converted to estrogen. Likewise a women going through Menopause has different needs to that of a young woman in her 20s.

Total Balance Unisex has been formulated to meet the needs of both females and males who have no specific requirement for the special actions of our respective Total Balance Womens Plus or Mens Plus versions.

Total Balance Unisex can be taken by children as young as 12 years old and the elderly at any age.

As with all the Total Balance range it contains:

  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Trace minerals
  • Antioxidants
  • Amino Acids
  • Neuronutrients
  • Bioflavonoids
  • Carotonoids
  • Herb extracts
  • Enzymes
  • Other specialty substances and co-factors.

Each ingredient serves a specific individual purpose as well as complementing and enhancing each other. The interaction of these ingredients has been studied at molecular level and at the various metabolic pathways followed to ensure maximum effectiveness.

All ingredients have proven scientific profiles. Please refer to the Ingredients tab above for more information.

“The restoration or sustaining of normal organ and brain functioning is the key to vibrant health and anti-aging!”

It is difficult to convey in a few short paragraphs just how unique Total Balance really is. However you can get a ‘feel’ of it if you examine the ingredient list carefully, which can be found by clicking on the Ingredient tab above.

You will find many ingredients in this formula that you are unlikely to be familiar with. For example, we refer to L-Glutathione which is essential for cell health and organ survival. As we get older we simply do not produce enough of it. It is rare to see it in a supplement because it costs more than 80 times as much as vitamin C.

Other ingredients that you may not have heard of are some of the specialized enzymes that we use which assist greatly in the your body’s uptake of many other nutrients. We have nutrients such as ATP and RNA, specialized Herbs and substances such as DIM, the active ingredient of broccoli, and so on. They all serve a specific purpose.

Also, you don’t have to worry about the ingredients being available to and assimilated by your body. Not only do we use our enteric coating process, but we test and ensure every batch meets the British and US Pharmacopeia for disintegration.

Thousands of customers in more than 30 countries throughout the world have been using Total Balance for years with exceptional long term results. If you combine this product with our Omega 3 DHA/Esters you will have a sound supplement foundation.

Unless you are taking a statin drug there is no need for you to take a CoQ10 supplement with Total Balance as we have provided all the precursors of COQ10 in the formula to ensure your body produces a more than adequate amount.

Delivery System

Having all the potent ingredients and ensuring they interact correctly is of little use if they cannot reach the cells and organs they are destined for. To ensure that they do we utilize a delivery system, which is rare for nutritional supplements but fairly common with some expensive pharmaceutical drugs. This delivery system is called enteric coating…

This system ensures the integrity of the Total Balance ingredients (in particular the active enzymes and specialized nutrients such as L-Glutathione) as they pass through the stomach. The special acid resistant enteric coating protects all the ingredients as they pass through into the small intestine where they are absorbed into the lymphatic system and dispersed throughout the body to nourish the cells and organs.

When most conventional tablets or capsules are released in the stomach there is the possibility of epithelial damage which can cause discomfort in some people. The new Total Balance tablets avoid this problem.

The net result of this delivery system is:

  • Greater potency of most ingredients due to the elimination of acid damage.
  • Enhanced potency of some ingredients, some as much as five fold!
  • Greater convenience as they do not have to be taken with a meal.

For more info on this delivery system please go to enteric coating.

Using Crystals To Clear The Chakras

April 10th, 2006

The Chakras are the energy centres located in the area of specific human organs. They are linked to each other by channels. Stimulating the Chakras by means of Meditation creates a feeling of wholeness and balance beneficial to both mental and physical health. Placing a specific crystal on a Chakra helps to evoke and stimulate the most subtle forces.

Below we describe several Crystal Healing exercises.

  • Before and after Crystal Healing sessions engage your mind while placing the Crystals. Which visualisation images would be most inspiring for you?
  • Clear the room of discharged negative energy after a session, using the same cleansing method you used to cleanse your Crystals (see Preparing Your Crystals section).
  • Wash your hands in cool running water directly afterwards to boost your body’s beneficial negative ions.
  • Re-cleanse your Crystals straight after a session. It is easier to remember which Crystals you used and ensures you don’t forget this essential process altogether.

Balancing The Chakras For healing to take place the Chakras must be balanced and in harmony. Use two single-terminated Quartz crystals:- * Lie down and settle yourself comfortably. * Place one of the Crystals at your feet, with the point towards your head. Put the other crystal at the crown of your head with the terminated end pointing down. * Take a few minutes to visualise your entire subtle energy system becoming harmonised and balanced. * Be aware of any sensations of blockage or soreness. * Ask your higher mind to indicate what the problem is and how to deal with it. Act on that intuitive guidance in a separate session with whichever additional Crystals you need to use at that time.

A Revitalising Energy Boost Hold two single-terminated clear Quartz Crystals, one in each hand, while sitting upright on a chair with your feet firmly grounded. The terminated (pointed) ends of the Crystals should be directed towards your body. This positive polarity directs energy from the universal field, distributing it throughout the subtle energy system. Breathe slowly and deeply, visualising the energy coursing through your body, leaving you feeling revitalised.

Welcome Stress Relief Lay comfortably on the floor and place a single-terminated quart crystal across your Solar Plexus Chakra, with the terminated end pointing upwards towards the Crown Chakra. Visualise the excess inappropriate energy being drawn out of your field and discharged into the universal field. Note: it is important to clear the room of dispersed negative energy after such a session.

Relief from Headaches Place Rose Quartz, Aventurine or Blue Lace Agate Crystals on the affected area for 5 minutes. Create whatever visualisation image you feel is right. For sharp Headaches, hold the Crystals against your temples. For duller Headaches lay with your head against a soft Pillow and place a crystal at the back of your head at the point where the base of the skull meets the neck.

Helping Localised Pain Relief This technique can be used for sprained muscles, period Pains, Rheumatism or Arthritis. Hold one single-terminated Quartz crystal in your right (sending) hand with the pointed end towards the affected area for a few minutes and visualise a soothing image. If the pain is spread over a large area, cover the entire area with exaggerated stroking movements with the blunt (feminine) end of the crystal towards the area of pain. As the crystal comes away from the body, flick the crystal into the air to discharge negative energy.

Realising Your Potential The following Crystals should be used for a full body layout:- * At the Crown Chakra - Amethyst to calm the mind, dissolve Anxiety and absorb negativity * On the Third Eye Chakra - Sodalite to increase spiritual awareness * On the Throat Chakra - Blue Lace Agate to help self-expression * On the Heart Chakra - Green Aventurine to centre you while inspiring independence, well-being and health * On the Solar Plexus Chakra - Citrine for optimism and mental clarity * On the Lower Abdomen Chakra - Carnelian to increase Vitality and passion, and boost assertiveness * On the Root Chakra - Red Jasper to give a sense of balance to the spirit and to ground you physically and emotionally * At the bottom of your feet - Single-terminated Clear Quartz (with the terminated end pointing towards your body) to channel energy through the Chakras.

Focus on a positive satisfying and viable outcome for the future.

UT-Tonic - Tissue Salts For Bladder Infections

April 10th, 2006

Symptoms of lower UTI (Cystitis, Urethritis) in adults:

Symptoms of UTI in young children

  • Diarrhea
  • Excessive crying that cannot be comforted by usual means (e.g. rocking, feeding)
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fever
  • Nausea and Vomiting
  • Older children may experience the following symptoms :
  • Flank or lower back pain (especially with a kidney infection)
  • Frequent Urination
  • Can only produce a small amount of urine at a time
  • Incontinence (e.g. Bedwetting)
  • Pain in the abdomen and pelvic area
  • Burning sensation when passing urine
  • Urine that is cloudy or has an unpleasant smell

What is Triple Complex UT Tonic?

Triple Complex UT Tonic is a combination formula containing three biochemic tissue salts known for their ability to assist the body to fight infection (natural antibiotic alternative) and to relieve a range of bladder and urinary tract problems including burning while urinating, involuntary Incontinence, kidney problems, Gallstones and Weak Bladder.

Because all biochemic tissue salts are naturally occurring in the body, Triple Complex UT Tonic is safe to use for all ages from infancy to the elderly and can also be used with confidence during Pregnancy and nursing.

Other benefits include relief from morning sickness and Nausea during Pregnancy, as well as improvement in the bio-availability of iron and oxygen in all body cells.

One of the properties that make biochemic tissue salts so effective is that they are known to assist healing on the cellular level, rather than simply suppressing symptoms.

May also be combined with UTI-Clear for Urinary Tract Infections

Use UT Tonic regularly to:

What are the ingredients of Triple Complex UT Tonic?

Triple Complex UT Tonic contains:

Ferrum Phosphoricum (Ferrum Phos.) is a biochemic tissue salt which has many uses in the body. Two of the most important benefits are in the ability of Ferrum Phos to combat all types of infection and inflammation. Ferrum Phos also helps to strengthen the walls of the blood vessels and thus improves the body’s ability to distribute oxygen-rich blood and iron to all cells, thereby facilitating healing. Ferrum Phos is also very helpful during Pregnancy and helps to reduce morning sickness and ease the involuntary Incontinence (sudden spurts of urine) often experienced by Pregnant women, those with a prolapsed uterus and also in the elderly. An excellent Tissue Salt for the treatment of Cystitis or any Urinary Tract Infection.

Natrium Phosphate (Nat. Phos.): acts as a biochemical antacid, acid neutralizer and PH balancer. It helps to ease the burning sensation experienced during a Urinary Tract Infection and will also help with vaginal infections accompanied by an unpleasant itch. Nat Phos is invaluable for all ailments affecting the urinary system, including acid urine, bladder weakness, Gallstones, kidney pain and nephritis. Like Ferrum Phos., it also helps to reduce Nausea.

Kalium Sulphate (Kali Sulph.) is an effective natural antibiotic, carrying oxygen to the cells to assist with healing. Even severe infections can respond very well to Kali Sulph., which is useful for both chronic and acute infection.

Lactose: UT Tonic is presented in small lactose tablets. The amount of lactose used is very small and is generally well tolerated even by people who are lactose intolerant.

Triple Complex UT Tonic contains no gluten, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives

How do I use Triple Complex UT Tonic?

Slowly dissolve two to four tablets under the tongue in a clean mouth four to six times daily until symptoms subside.

Thereafter suck two to four tablets three times daily for five more days.

Babies and Small Children: Dissolve 1 - 2 tablets in a little warm water or milk.

Pregnant women can use Triple Complex UT Tonic preventatively during Pregnancy (two to four tablets twice daily). Not only will it help with Nausea, but it will also help to prevent the urinary tract problems and involuntary Incontinence so common during the months of Pregnancy.

NOTE: Triple Complex UT Tonic contains biochemic tissue salts which are naturally occurring in the body. It is therefore completely safe for all ages from newborn babies to the elderly and can be used by Pregnant and nursing women.

How long does one bottle last?

Depending on frequency of use, one bottle of Triple Complex UT Tonic lasts for a month or longer.

How long until I see results?

Improvement is usually noted within 2 - 3 days and treatment should be continued for 5 - 7 days to prevent relapse.

How has Triple Complex UT Tonic helped others?

“Thanks for a fantastic product! I suffered with UTI’s throughout my pregnancies and the antibiotics I took with my first baby caused his teeth to be discolored. I searched the web for a natural alternative this time and have been very pleased with the results.” - Brenda

“Your Triple Complex UT Tonic works wonders and I was so glad to find something that was safe during Pregnancy. Thank you for all your help and advice - I will definitely be returning again!” - FG

“My baby is only 18 months old and has had so many Bladder Infections. The doctors can find nothing wrong but all they prescribed was one course of antibiotics after another which I began to feel uncomfortable with. I was referred to your product and me and my little girl have not looked back! Since beginning your UT Tonic, all her symptoms disappeared and there has been no sign of an infection for the past 6 months, which is like a miracle to me! I wish I had heard of you before! Thank you so much!” - Happy Mother

What else can I do to help?

  • Take 3 or 4 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water three to five times a day to flush out your urinary tract. Do this when you have an infection and also periodically for UT health.
  • Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily.
  • Avoid foods and beverages high in sugar.
  • Avoid the use of scented vaginal sprays and douches. These products are more beneficial to their manufacturers than they are to female health! Always wear panties with a cotton gusset.
  • Teach children (girls) to wipe away from the vagina after a Bowel Movement to prevent bacteria from entering the urinary tract.

Reflexology Charts

April 10th, 2006

The feet are a microcosm of the human body and every organ and body part is represented in the feet. Where there are two organs in the body they will be represented on both feet, e.g. lungs and kidney and where there is only one organ, this will be represented on one foot, e.g. the liver will be on the right foot while the heart will be on the left. Where the organ or body part is reflected in the feet, this is called the “organ” reflex, e.g. the heart reflex.

The right foot represents the right side of the body as well as the past while the left foot represents the left side of the body as well as the present and future.

Here are several larger charts - feel free to print them or save them if you wish! They will open in a new window.

Chart 1 - Reflexes in the left foot

Chart 2 - Reflexes in the right foot

Chart 3 - Reflexes on top of the feet

Chart 4 - Inner/Outer foot reflexes

Ancient History of Reflexology

April 10th, 2006

t is important to be aware of the great archetypal history manifested by the practitioners which dates back over 6,000 years.

Our study of the ancient Egyptian doctors starts 4,500 years ago. They were among the first to study the human body scientifically. They became masters at setting bones, caring for wounds and successfully treating many illnesses. Egyptian artists preserved the history of Surgery, anatomical observation and medical treatments through their meticulous record keeping.

Ed and Ellen Case of Los Angeles, while on tour of Egypt in l979, discovered a pictograph on the wall of the tomb of Ankhmahar which is located in Saqqara. This is known as the tomb of the physician and has been dated by Egyptologists at 2330 B.C.

This is the third oldest recorded history of pedis/manus-cure Reflexology to date and gives the modern day practitioner a consciousness of its roots and a sense of connection with one of the oldest health care professions in the world. In the artist’s painted illustration of the original pictograph, the physicians are pressuring the Great toe (spleen/pancreas and liver meridians) and thumb (lung meridian) of their respective patients; while the patients themselves are putting pressure on a gallbladder meridian point under their arm.

Pain was an indicator of a problem according to the hieroglyphic translation made by the Papyrus Institute in Cairo. The patient says to the physician: “Don’t let it be painful.” The modern Reflexologist has some patients with the same request; while others embrace the pain; knowing that the best results are due to a strong “current of injury”.

The reply of the physician shows consideration of the patient; working within his pain tolerance level: “I do as you please.” A patient must be educated to the benefits of the pain created by pressure on a point.

As we consider the early origins of Reflexology, I wish to present some modern day considerations that must be adopted into the practice of this ancient healing art. It is of interest to me that the medical specialist had a practical trade as well as his therapy practice (stone carver/foot Reflexologist) in ancient Egypt.

Many modern Reflexologists combine their practice with another occupation (auto mechanic/foot Reflexologist). Don’t put off living your life until you are “better.” (”I’ll do it when I’ve learned more ….. when I’m older …..when I have more money …..when I have more time.”)

Look for all the positive things taking place in and around you right now. As you find them, naturally you’ll feel more joyful. In life we have either results or try to justify our failure. If we don’t have what we want (results), we usually have a long list of reasons why we haven’t had success.

My father used to tell me, “Son, Don’t rationalize (rational lies).”

Reflexology offers you an incredibly effective method of affecting the health of yourself and your family in a positive manner as well as a positive way to express your life.

Omega-3s could stop liver cancer cells growth

April 10th, 2006

By Stephen Daniells

Omega-3 Fatty Acids could prevent or inhibit the growth of liver cancer cells, say researchers from the University of Pittsburgh at today’s annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids have been linked to a wide-range of health benefits, including cardiovascular disease (CVD), good development of a baby during Pregnancy, joint health, behaviour and mood, and certain cancers.

“It has been known for some time that Omega-3 Fatty Acids can inhibit certain cancer cells. So, we were interested in determining whether these substances could inhibit liver cancer cells. If so, we also wanted to know by what mechanism this inhibition occurs,” explained lead researcher Tong Wu, from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.

Liver cancer is one of the rarer forms of the disease, accounting for about one per cent of all cancers. Worryingly, the risk of the disease increases with age, and rates have doubled since 1975, from two to four people per 100,000 people, according to Cancer Research UK.

The Pittsburgh scientists report the effects of Omega 3 Fatty Acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and the omega-6 fatty acid, arachidonic acid (AA), on liver cancer cells.

Both Omega-3 Fatty Acids had a dose-dependent inhibitory effect, while the omega-6 acid had not effect, said the researchers.

Wu and colleagues found that DHA induced apoptosis, programmed cell death of the cancer cells, by promoting the splitting of a protein, called poly (ADP-Ribose) polymerase (PARP), which is considered a tell-tale marker of cell death.

Also, both DHA and EPA indirectly decreased the levels of a protein, beta-catein, which has been linked to tumour development.

“Beta-catenin is known to promote cell growth and also is implicated in tumor cell promotion. Therefore, our finding that Omega-3 Fatty Acids can decrease levels of beta-catenin is further evidence that these compounds have the ability to interact on several points of pathways involved in tumor progression”, said Wu.

A similar study was recently published on-line in the British Journal of Cancer (doi: 10.1038/sj.bjc.6603030), reporting the effects of EPA, DHA and AA, on the spread of human prostate cancer cell lines.

While both Omega-3 Fatty Acids were reported to have beneficial effects on stopping the growth and spread of the prostate cancer cells, the omega-6 fatty acid was reported to produce a metabolite, prostaglandin E2, helped the spread of the prostate cancer cells to bone marrow cells.

The role of omega Fatty Acids in the prevention of cancer has received increased media attention in recent weeks after a British Medical Journal article published a meta-analysis reviewing the associations between Omega-3 intake and the risk of Heart Disease, cancer and mortality.

The analysis reported that there was no indication that the Fatty Acids offered protection for any of the disease, conclusions that were rounded upon by industry groups.

Dr Ray Rice, a food scientist and technical adviser to the Omega 3 Group, a consortium of fish companies, hit back at the study, saying: “This report used a faulty technique. It is conceptually flawed and should not cause people to regard seafood as anything but tasty and nutritious.”

The studies by Wu and colleagues are presented as abstracts numbers 2679 and 2680.
