Skin Healing Plantain Salve

April 20th, 2006

Use dry plantain - broad or lance leafed - (Plantago spp.).

Put in in a jar and cover it with grain alcohol (Everclear or Vodka) so it is barely moistened. Let is soak for 8 hours or so.

Then mix it 1:5 (weight to volume - so 1 oz herb to 5 fluid oz oil) with olive oil. Put it in a blender and blend it until the sides of the blender are warm (quite a while).

Now strain it through a fine cloth or something like that and use the oil to make a salve by heating it and mixing it with beeswax. Start with 1:5 beeswax to oil ratio, if the salve comes out to soft you can remelt it and add more beeswax.

This is a wonderful, skin healing, restorative salve (one of my friends has switched completely to it as Moisturizer) but what is the coolest about it is the color. The green is so unbelievably vibrant. I have a bottle of the oil on a shelf, just so I can look at it, it reminds me of Summer…

Allergies and Hay Fever - What Will Help?

April 20th, 2006

Antihistamine drugs work by blocking the release of histamine in response to an allergen. This prevents the allergic reaction in the short term and helps to clear allergic reactions like sneezing, red, itchy and watery eyes and nose.

However, they also often have unwanted side effects like drowsiness, heart palpitations, impaired Concentration, etc.

Because they often become less effective over time, it may be necessary to keep trying new drugs to try and achieve the same therapeutic effect.

What are SOS HistaDrops and how can they help?

One of the most frequently requested remedies by our customers was for a safe and effective remedy to treat Hayfever and airborne Allergies.

Customers indicated a dissatisfaction with Antihistamine drugs and a need to find an effective natural alternative. Many customers had previously tried Herbal Remedies for Hayfever without much success.

SOS HistaDrops combine herbal and homeopathic ingredients for fast and effective relief of the major symptoms of Hayfever and Allergic Rhinitis linked to airborne allergens.

Manufactured in a fast-acting tincture formula, SOS HistaDrops can quickly clear all the troublesome symptoms of airborne Allergies, while also helping to strengthen your system against further attacks.

NOTE: SOS HistaDrops may also be used with AllergiClear tablets for the prevention and treatment of allergic conditions.

Use SOS HistaDrops to:

  • Quickly treat the symptoms of airborne Allergies, Allergic Rhinitis and Hayfever
  • Clear runny nose and watering eyes.
  • Reduce sneezing and itchy eyes and nose
  • Relief inflammation, redness and swollen eyes
  • Reduce dependence on OTC and prescription antihistamines with unwanted side effects

SOS HistaDrops may also be used with AllergiClear tablets for the prevention and treatment of allergic conditions.

What are the ingredients?

SOS HistaDrops contain the following herbal and homeopathic ingredients in fast acting tincture form:

Urtica urens: This herb has been used for many centuries in folk medicine to treat inflammation and Allergies. Modern research has recently supported its use as and effective anti-inflammatory and natural Antihistamine. It is a rich source of quercitin, a flavonoid known to inhibit the release of histamine without the side effects of Antihistamine drugs.

Plantago lanceolata (also known as plantain) also has a long history of traditional use for the treatment of respiratory complaints, including coughs and inflammation and has known anti-catarrhal and antispasmodic properties. Plantago has been approved by the German Commission E to treat coughs and soothe the irritation of mucous membranes and is extremely effective in the treatment of Allergic Rhinitis due to its soothing and astringent properties.

Allium cepa C30 is a homeopathic remedy which quickly treats stinging, burning, streaming nose and eyes and stops violent sneezing attacks, while reducing inflammation in swollen itchy eyes.

Ars. iod. C30 is also homeopathically formulated to assist with all the symptoms of Hayfever and Allergic Rhinitis. It can also help to reduce irritability and to prevent sneezing and a wheezing chest.

How do I use SOS HistaDrops?

SOS HistaDrops are taken when needed at the first signs of the symptoms of Hayfever, Allergic Rhinitis or reactions to airborne allergens like pollen, grass seeds, house dust, animal dander, etc.

They come in convenient drop form, making it easy to adjust the dosage for adults and children of different ages.

Simply dilute the drops in about 1/4 cup (less for the younger child) of water or juice.

Adults and teenagers : 10 - 15 drops

Children 6 - 12yrs : 5 - 10 drops

NOTE: SOS HistaDrops may also be used with AllergiClear tablets for the prevention and treatment of allergic conditions.

Caution: Safety during pregnancy has not yet been established. Pregnant women can use our Triple Complex BronchoSoothe as an alternative.

How have SOS HistaDrops helped others?

“These drops are fantastic! They work quickly and I can say that I feel more awake, rather than half asleep which is how the antihistamines made me feel. Thanks for a great remedy!!!!!!” Alison, Redhill

“My daughter has been using your AllergiClear along with the HistaDrops and we have noticed a big difference. Spring used to be a difficult time of year for her and now she is more outgoing and not sneezing all the time. We are very grateful for your help.” Zelda B.

“As a sportsman I am out in the open a lot and really can suffer from grass cuttings, pollen, etc. Indoors the dust gets to me. The HistaDrops really help to reduce all the sneezing, watery eyes, nose and redness. I carry them everywhere with me!” Ben J.

How long will a bottle last?

One bottle of SOS HistaDrops will last approximately a month or longer, depending on age and frequency of use.

How long until I see results?

Relief is usually noticed within 10 - 15 minutes. Some people may require a second dose after about 30 minutes.

Sunburn Helper

April 20th, 2006

Add some lavender to some generic drugstore hand lotion and slather it on soon after burning. The pain will go away. Then make the following blend for use after every bath until it’s all better.

18 drops Lavender 6 drops Chamomile (I used English cause that’s what I had) 2 drops Geranium 2 drops Rose absolute or Jasmine (just cause I thought it would smell good, no other real reason) 1 drop Peppermint ( to cool the skin, still felt warm but didn’t hurt) Blended into 2 ounces jojoba oil

Apply some onto wet skin from the shower or bath and let dry au naturel.

Put a couple droppers full of the blend into a couple ounces of neroli hydrosol and sprayed that on later before getting dressed. Very soothing.

The Healing Energy of Crystals and Stones

April 20th, 2006

Whether in a home or a workspace, Crystals can be versatile healing partners, adapting to the changing needs of those who occupy the space. Their vibrations can change in response to the energies around them and to the direct intentions of those who are working with them. In effect, they can “rise” to meet new challenges depending upon the circumstances, their particular healing properties and how people choose to place and work with them.

Crystals can be an important ingredient in the recipe for creating a healthy, nourishing home or workspace. Like other elements, such as plant life and water features, Crystals offer another way to connect more fully with nature and bring its vibrant life-force energies into our habitats. Although the term crystal was used originally to refer to Quartz crystal, this term is popularly used today to refer to all members of the mineral kingdom. From easily accessible garden rocks to fine Gemstones, every member of the mineral kingdom has the potential to contribute to the health and well being of people and the spaces in which they live and work.

Crystals work by introducing specific energies that may promote greater health, balance and well being into a space. Like everything that exists in physical form, Crystals hold subtle vibrations and may be used to alter or “re-attune” the energy of a space. Ancient Healing Traditions The growing use of Crystals in healing today is not a New Age invention, but actually a return to the time-honored traditions that recognize nature’s healing gifts and the importance of coming into greater partnership and harmony with nature.

Crystals are included in the healing traditions of many native/indigenous cultures around the world, from the ancient Incas to present-day Native American, Aboriginal and African tribes. These cultures recognize the importance of our relationship with nature in promoting health, balance and harmony.

The current popularity of feng shui, the ancient art of placement, reflects renewed interest in returning to a more active partnership with nature. In feng shui, members of the mineral kingdom may be used to enhance the healthy energy or “chi” of a space. Crystals may be used to introduce specific energies, break up stagnant energies that accumulate or remedy other energetic challenges such as windowless rooms where energy does not flow healthfully. By introducing specific, subtle energies that are felt rather than seen, Crystals contribute a unique element to the design of a space. Resulting feelings and experiences may vary from person to person.

The energy of unconditional love, frequently incorporated into room designs through Crystals, is described as sweet, gentle or nourishing. Crystal vibrations that are experienced as peaceful, calming, strengthening or energizing are also popular choices to support rest, Meditation, healing or active living.

Whether working like energetic vacuum cleaners or re-attuning unhealthy energies into healthy vibrations, some Crystals are also used to help keep spaces energetically clean and healthy. They may help to partially remedy the unhealthy effects of electromagnetic fields generated by computers and appliances, or the stressful energies generated within spaces or their surrounding neighborhoods.

Selecting a Crystal

The first step in selecting a crystal to enhance a space is to identify the desired effect. For example, a person who is currently going through a divorce or other traumatic life event may wish to receive more nurturing and unconditional love. Another person, feeling the stress and fears of others nearby or in the world-at-large, may use Crystals to help create a calm and peaceful Meditation room or private healing space.

When this intention is created, the person’s own subtle energy serves as a Tuning Fork that helps direct him/her to the Crystals that may be most helpful. This process may manifest in different ways at various times. People may find themselves attracted to particular stones visually, through pleasing touch or by simply sensing that they feel a greater sense of well being when they hold them or are around them. Books about Crystals and suggestions from others, including feng shui consultants and other energy practitioners, may also be helpful.

Since crystal books talk about energy in fixed terms, and the energies of human beings and their spaces change constantly, these texts can be most useful by helping one to survey the broad possibilities first. The truest test of whether a particular stone is the right choice is always how the person experiences its effects.

The size of a stone may also be an important consideration. While stone size does not necessarily determine its energetic power, Crystals used in the environment generally need to be larger than those used for personal healing. However, the benefit of smaller Crystals increases by using multiple stones or by pairing them with higher vibration Crystals such as clear Quartz, which can amplify their energy. Pairing Crystals with plants or using them in partnership with other design elements such as color may also maximize their beneficial effects.

Old Favorites:

Rose Quartz, Amethyst, and Aulmauracite While the crystal choices available are seemingly limitless, long-time favorites like rose Quartz and Amethyst continue to be widely recommended and shared. Associated with the energy of unconditional love, rose Quartz has long been a favorite of those seeking to share love, provide comfort during challenging times and return to balance after times of crisis. During times of stress and fear in the world, this stone’s sweet energy can help to create a space that enables one to feel nourished, supported and able to respond to the demands of the day. Although frequently used in bedrooms where it nourishes during sleep time, this crystal is also helpful in other areas of the home and office.

Amethyst, a rich purple stone, is also a versatile crystal partner. Its energy has both cleansing and elevating effects. Frequently used in healing rooms and other spaces, this stone’s energy can assist in clearing and maintaining a clean, nourishing space in places where stagnant energies may accumulate. Its refined, elevating qualities can be a welcome support in creating sacred spaces used for Meditation, contemplation and prayer.

Aulmauracite Power Rock - Each Power Rock is unique, and customizes itself to the energies and life’s mission statement of its user. Your spiritual quest and mission becomes its quest and mission if activated and used properly with benevolence and integrity.

What Are Asthma and Allergies?

April 20th, 2006

Asthma is a disease of the lungs where the airways become blocked or narrowed causing difficulties in breathing. These effects are usually temporary, but they cause shortness of breath, breathing trouble, and other symptoms. Asthma is a chronic disease affecting nearly 20 million Americans. Worldwide, Asthma prevalence ranges from 1.9 percent to 36.7 percent in various countries, according to the International Study of Asthma and Allergy in Children.

Asthma is commonly divided into two types: allergic or extrinsic Asthma and non-allergic or intrinsic Asthma. Although Asthma can cause severe health problems, treatment can control it and allow a person to live a normal and active life.

Allergic and non-allergic Asthma are mainly chronic inflammatory diseases of the airways. This means that people with Asthma have inflamed airways which causes two secondary symptoms: (1) The bronchi, the airway branches leading to the lungs, become overly reactive and more sensitive to all kinds of Asthma triggers such as allergens, cold and dry air, smoke and viruses. Also, (2) the lungs have difficulty moving air in and out, which is called airflow obstruction. Together, these symptoms cause the tertiary symptoms the coughing, wheezing, tight chest and worse.

Asthma occurs when airways become temporarily blocked or narrowed due to exposure to allergens (“allergic Asthma”), irritants, strenuous exercise, Anxiety or other triggers. Symptoms include:

  • Sudden shortness of breath
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Tight chest
  • Wheezing or coughing

People with Asthma have inflamed airways which are super-sensitive to things which do not bother other people and are called “triggers.” Asthma triggers vary from person to person based on whether one has allergic Asthma or non-allergic Asthma, but some of the most common triggers include:

  • Allergens
  • Irritants in the air
  • Respiratory Infections
  • Exercise
  • Weather
  • Strong Emotions such as fear, anger or excitement
  • Certain medications

Asthma episodes do not always occur right after a person is exposed to a trigger. Depending on the type of trigger and how sensitive a person is to it, Asthma episodes may be delayed. Each case of Asthma is unique just like you.

Asthma doesn’t have to impose any big limits on quality of life. An Asthma management plan is important and something developed by you and your physician to help you control your Asthma, instead of your Asthma controlling you.

There are many things that can be done, including natural treatments, to take control of Asthma and its symptoms to minimize any impact on life and activities. Asthma medications may be either inhaled or in pill form and are divided into two types—quick-relief and long-term control such as Native RemediesBioVent (long-term control) and BronchoSoothe (quick-relief) which are 100% natural, safe and effective remedies for natural Asthma relief and to assist with the management, control and prevention of Asthma and can be a part of your Asthma management plan.

Many, and in fact most, cases of Asthma, particularly among children, have Allergies as a major component.


Allergies are diseases of the Immune System and are characterized by an overreaction of the human Immune System to certain substances that usually cause no reaction in most individuals. “Antigens,” or protein particles like pollen, food or dander enter our bodies through a variety of ways. If the antigen causes an allergic reaction, that particle is considered an “allergen” – and antigen that triggers an allergic reaction. These are substances (or “allergens”) that are eaten (peanuts, shellfish, etc.), breathed into the lungs or inhaled (pollen, dust mites, etc.), injected (bee stings, certain medicines, etc.) or touched (poison ivy, latex, etc.). The Immune System overreaction can result in symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, wheezing, itchy eyes, runny nose, skin rashes or hives, itching and itchy and scratchy nose and throat. In severe cases it can also result in rashes, hives, lower blood pressure, difficulty breathing, Asthma attacks, and even death.

Allergies are grouped by the kind of trigger, time of year or where symptoms appear on the body: indoor and outdoor Allergies (also called “hay fever,” “seasonal,” “perennial” or “nasal” Allergies), food and drug Allergies, latex Allergies, insect Allergies, skin Allergies and eye Allergies.

More Americans than ever before say they are suffering from Allergies. It is among the country’s most common, yet often overlooked, diseases. Allergies are not only bothersome, but many have been linked to a variety of common and serious chronic respiratory illnesses (such as sinusitis and Asthma). Additionally, allergic reactions can be severe and even fatal. Allergies have a genetic component. If only one parent has Allergies of any type, chances are 1 in 3 that each child will have an allergy. If both parents have Allergies, it is much more likely (7 in 10) that their children will have Allergies.

There are no cures for Allergies. Allergies can be managed with proper prevention and treatment. Good allergy treatment is based on the results of allergy tests, medical history, and severity of symptoms. It can include three different treatment strategies: avoidance of allergens, medication options and/or immunotherapy (allergy shots).

Some people don’t take allergy medicines because they don’t take their symptoms seriously and say “Oh, it’s only my Allergies.”. The result may be painful and worse complications such as sinus or ear infections. Don’t take the risk because there are other options available to treat allergy symptoms rather than the traditional allergy medications, allergy shots, or consulting an allergist.

There are many safe non-prescription medicines available to relieve allergy symptoms such as Native RemediesAllergiClear and SOS HistaDrops which are 100% natural, safe and effective herbal and Homeopathic Remedies to naturally clear Allergies and protect against all Airborne and Seasonal Allergies, Allergic Rhinitis and Hayfever!

Dead Sea Improves Life

April 20th, 2006

The beneficial effects of the Dead Sea’s raw materials on the skin and their unique therapeutic and beautifying powers have been recognized since ancient times. The “Sea of Salt”, as it is often referred to, lies at the lowest point on earth and has greater solid content than any other body of water. The atmospheric pressure at the Dead Sea is the highest on the planet. This combination of the atmosphere and the mineral rich water makes the Dead Sea unusually therapeutic.

Scientific studies have proven that bathing in Dead Sea salts not only improves such skin ailments as Psoriasis and Eczema, but also stimulates Circulation and encourages the skin to renew itself. In addition, subcutaneous penetration helps relieve aches and pains in joints and muscles, providing much relief for those who experience Rheumatism and Arthritis. Enjoy a hot, relaxing soak in the tub, or use the salt Soap to treat your skin when you take a shower.

Dead Sea Skin Care products’ unique ingredient – mineral mud – is the key to unlocking your skin’s natural Beauty. The remarkable absorbency of this mineral and oxygen rich substance gives it the ability to reach deep into the skin. Dead Sea mineral mud thoroughly cleanses clogged pores while using reverse osmosis to tighten them. Mineral mud’s natural ingredients revitalize and nourish, helping the skin to look and feel its best.

More About the Dead Sea . . .

The Dead Sea, also known as the “Sea of Salt”, is located near what was once the western edge of the “Cradle of Civilization”; the land that lies between the Tigris River to the north, the Euphrates River to the south, the Persian Gulf to the East and the Mediterranean Sea to the west. This area was known as Mesopotamia and held our planet’s earliest settlements in its palms in about 3500 BCE. It now houses most of modern day Iraq.

Going forward about 2500 years, King Solomon set out to make peace in this region that had become entangled by many enemies. King Solomon is known as a peaceful king, in part because he worked to make peace by diplomacy, creating external quiet surrounding his kingdom. With peace achieved, he then set about industrializing his kingdom. Perhaps as part of his move to industrialize, the beneficial effects of the Dead Sea were put into production. And just maybe King Solomon provided all of the people of his kingdom access to the Dead Sea and made its many healthy and beautifying products affordable, creating an environment of relaxed, peaceful, and beautiful neighbors!

Just a mere 900 years later, not too far from the Dead Sea, Cleopatra enters history’s stage and among her accomplishments charms two powerful rulers, Mark Antony and Julius Caesar. She does this on her way to becoming the last pharaoh of Egypt. Cleopatra’s legendary Beauty will probably never be confirmed, but it lies somewhere between her unflattering profile on the eighty drachma coin used during her rule to the few still exisiting sculptures that show a flawless Beauty with a small nose and full lips. Regardless of Cleopatra’s actual features, we do know she used them well. It is reputed that she went to great lengths and expense to obtain exclusive rights over the Dead Sea area.The remains of pharmaceutical and cosmetic factories that she had built near the Dead Sea can be seen on the western bank in Ein Bokek and Ein Gedi.

And now travel 2000 years forward and we find that on both the Israeli and the Jordanian shores of the Dead Sea there are many spas and medical programs to which thousands of people flock annually. These spas and medical facilities make use of the health promoting environment of the Dead Sea. Only now what was once known intuitively has now been researched and documented.

The Dead Sea contains, according to the Dead Sea Research Center, “a unique solar irradiation, an increased oxygen density, a high density salty sea with an unusual salt composition, thermo-mineral springs and a special natural mud”. The synthesis of these unique properties that occur only at this location that is the lowest point on earth and that has greater solid content than any other body of water has been critically evaluated, “in terms of types of diseases treated, modes of therapy, and mechanism of healing”. In addition, the “increased attenuation of a specific spectrum of ultra-violet radiation provides unusual therapeutic properties with an impressive impact on a number of diseases. The air is denser here at sea level, rich in magnesium and bromine, unpolluted, and almost totally free of allergens.

There is a high salt Concentration in the Dead Sea. One can fly low over the sea and see the salt clumps floating in the water. The hot, dry air and high evaporation rate have attributed to this phenomenon that does not exist in other salty bodies of water. The Dead Sea’s water contains 32% salts and is high in magnesium, calcium, bromide, potassium, and other Minerals. For example, exposure to this water has been proven to nourish skin, ease discomfort from rheumatoid symptoms, activate the circulatory system, and relax nerves. Walk in to the Dead Sea, and you’ll find yourself able to float endlessly without effort.

The Dead Sea’s black mud is a homogeneous mixture of its organic elements that are retrieved from the shoreline and mixed with the earth. This mud is not only good for cleaning, and softening the skin; when applied to the skin and permitted to dry before washing off, the mud’s thermopoxic properties improves and stimulates blood Circulation, especially in the affected areas of joint diseases (Dead Sea Research Center,

The thousands of people who fly to Israel and Jordan each year stay at hotels and spas to undergo a few weeks of treatment that significantly and naturally, without pharmaceuticals, improves their health.

However, without taking time out from work, leaving family, and spending thousands of dollars, similar results can be obtained by spending significantly less money, staying home, and using products with Jericho Spa and Dead Sea Secrets labels. The products made with Dead Sea black mud, salts, and Minerals are of the highest quality and excellent for both healthy skin and Circulation as wel as for skin that needs improved Circulation and has been damaged due to disease or the side effects of disease.

Xtend-Life’s Total Balance Men’s Plus

April 20th, 2006

Once a man passes the age of 30 years the health of certain organs start to be put at risk…for example, the prostate. Also, the production of certain hormones within the body begins to slow down. In additional to less testosterone being produced some of it is converted to estrogen with various negative results.

As with all degenerative diseases they are undetectable in the early stages and very difficult to rectify when they are progressed to the point of being detectable. Enlarged Prostate and prostate cancer being two obvious examples!

Whereas we use the best available science to ensure that we include those nutrients that have been shown helpful in preventing degenerative diseases common to both men and women, there are specific issues that men have to face that need to be addressed.

The example above of an Enlarged Prostate is a good one. In order to maintain a healthy prostate you need adequate supplies of zinc…but just not any type of zinc! The zinc which is commonly found in Supplements and which we use is zinc citrate. Although we use this in all the Total Balance formulas, we also add a generous helping of zinc aspartate. Why? Because zinc citrate follows a different metabolic pathway to that of zinc aspartate! It goes to various organs but NOT to the prostate where it is needed.

Therefore, to ensure that you get the protection that you need from the zinc it has to be of the correct type. This is just one example.

Chrysin is another good example, which is not in either of our other two versions of Total Balance. It helps inhibit the conversion of testosterone to estrogen thus naturally raising the levels of testosterone. It works!

There are other specialty ingredients that we use in this product specifically for men.

As with all the Total Balance range, Mens Plus contains:

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

What are the benefits of taking Total Balance Mens Plus?

Total Balance Mens Plus addresses those specific needs of the male reproductive system, helping to boost virility and contribute to the prevention of male-specific diseases and conditions.

Total Balance Mens Plus helps you to cover all major areas of male health, integrating quality ingredients but remains at unbeatable price, enabling optimum health to be an affordable commodity.

Xtend-Life’s manufacturing system guarantees all ingredients are of the freshest and best quality before processing. Because we supply direct to our customers and do frequent production runs the finished product is never older than 60 days when shipped. This is quite unique in the supplement industry.

Prior to manufacturing any sensitive raw ingredients are held in our chillers at 4 degrees Celsius to ensure full potency is maintained. After these ingredients are incorporated into the tablets they are no longer heat sensitive.

Additionally, this formula incorporates the unique enteric coated delivery system to ensure better bio-availability and 100% effective use of each ingredient. For more info on this delivery system please click here.

What does Total Balance Men’s Plus do that the other 2 versions do not?

Total Balance Men’s Plus concentrates on a man’s health requirements more specifically than Unisex, which provides an overall nutritional protective environment, and of course Women’s Plus, which concentrates on requirements from a female perspective. It contains ingredients such as Chrysin, to help prevent the conversion of testosterone into oestrogren; Beta-sitosterol, to help fight against benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostatitis; and Corn Silk, to help relieve instances of Urethritis and nocturnal Enuresis as well as prostatitis and Urinary Infection.

What difference will I feel?

Total Balance Men’s Plus is about protecting and relieving male hormonal, reproductive and other common health complaints. These systems will become stronger and less prone to disease and relief may well be experienced from current ocurrances. Prevention from reoccurance is also often accounted. Just read some of our customer comments for further confirmation of what Total Balance Men’s Plus can achieve.

Is Total Balance Mens Plus safe to use?

Yes. Total Balance Mens Plus is made of 100% natural ingredients. It contains no pharmaceutical ingredients and does not therefore require a prescription. Each ingredient has undergone vigorous clinical studies at molecular level to prove their benefit to the human body and ensure their compatibility and abilities to enhance each other’s effects.

How many bottles do I need to purchase to see a difference and how long will it take Total Balance Mens Plus to work?

To see the best and most rapid results we suggest that you follow our ‘recommended protocol’ suggestion of 6 tablets per day, which equates to 2 bottles per month.

Total Balance Mens Plus can also offer immense additional support and health improvement in combination with any other Xtend-Life product to boost the effectiveness of that product.

Are there any discounts for Bulk purchases?

Our policy is to keep our selling price at the lowest possible level to ensure customers get maximum value for money. However, we do offer a genuine customer loyalty program for those customers who order regularly. This program provides product discounts and shipping subsidies.

Can you tell me more about the ingredients in Total Balance Mens Plus?

Total Balance Mens Plus is unique because Xtend-Life’s R & D team have spent time researching the most important ingredients and their individual and compatible clinical trials to formulate the best possible results.

It is important to note that although each ingredient has it’s individual benefits, it is only when formulated together in specific quantities and ratios that it is possible to achieve worthwhile results at an optimal level. Studies have shown that many nutrients when combined synergistically can increase their effectiveness by as much as fifteen times.

Why is the Vitamin E Dosage in the Total Balance only 100 IU instead of the general recommended dosage by experts of 400IU?

Most long-term human supplementation studies show benefits at daily vitamin E intakes between 100 and 400 IU.

Because vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin it is important not to ingest high levels of it on a regular basis. The amounts of Vitamin E that we use are still within the clinically proven beneficial range. This protocol removes the risk of overdosing in this nutrient for our customers who are using multiple Xtend-Life products which also contain small amounts of Vitamin E.

We also only use the natural form of Vitamin E which is considered to have greater efficacy than the synthetic type.

Bear in mind also that in Total Balance we use a broad spectrum Tocotrienol which significantly improves the potency of Vitamin E.

Why is there so little Vitamin C in your Total Balance formula?

Vitamin C in the form of Ascorbic Acid in a dose of over 400 mg daily (when taken orally) can do more harm than good because of its ability to generate free radicals, due to the reaction of hydrochloric acid in the stomach with the Ascorbic Acid. The levels contained in Total Balance are sufficient, even if you are on a less than optimal diet. The manner in which we combine this and other ingredients within the formula enables smaller doses to be much more effective than those found in a typical ‘multi’.

We have added Vitamin C to Total Balance as a co-factor, i.e. to help the body get the maximum benefits of all the other ingredients. Many other Antioxidants in Total Balance - Vitamins A & E, the Amino Acids and others - act in this way also.

If you feel you need to take high doses of Vitamin C orally then it is best not use Ascorbic Acid, but rather the salt form of Vitamin C, calcium ascorbate, also called Ester C. Ascorbic Acid ‘mops up’ free radicals when taken in amounts of up to 400 mg per day. In excess of that amount, it generates free radicals. The only exception to this is when a person is diseased (for example from an inflammatory condition, or a virus such as a cold or flu). This free radical generating effect can be avoided by using calcium ascorbate, for example, which avoids that type of reaction in the stomach.

A further alternative is intravenous Vitamin C, which bypasses the stomach. Most doctors and practitioners are unaware of this as it is a bio-chemical matter rather than a medical one.

I notice that Total Balance does not include CoEnzymeQ10, why is that?

CoEnzymeQ10 does not need to be included because the ingredients in the formula stimulate your body to produce its own CoQ10. If you take the full dose of Total Balance (6 tablets per day) your body will produce at least as much CoQ10 as if you had taken a 100mg tablet of CoQ10. CoQ10 is a synthetic supplement although it is a natural substance that is produced by your body. It is very unstable and only a very small percentage of CoQ10 Supplements ever get into the blood stream…example, about 5mgs of a 100mgs tablet…which is normally enough.

If various ingredients can combine to make CoQ10 can they also combine to make other perhaps dangerous substances?

Yes, they can. This is why you should never take a multi-nutrient supplement unless you are confident that it has been professionally designed and is manufactured under strict conditions. Synergy when combining ingredients is crucial, which is why formulas such as this must be prepared by a highly qualified professional team. Our research team headed by Prof. Dr A. Munem Daoud spent thousands of hours researching all the interactions of the ingredients prior to finalizing the new generation formula. There are only a handful of scientists in the world with this level of expertise.

What effect should I feel after I begin taking Total Balance?

This varies from person to person. Some people will notice a marked improvement in their energy levels within days and an increased feeling of well being. On the other hand some people may take some months before they feel any direct effects.

If I don’t feel any effects does that mean that I am not getting the benefits?

Not at all! Your cells and organs are getting the benefits even if you can’t directly feel it in the short term. Just as an example. Bilberry extract, lutein, rutin, and Zeaxanthin are nutrients that are well proven in playing a significant role in the prevention of age related macular degeneration. These nutrients will still be quietly working away at cellular level to provide your eyes with the protection that they need. Macular degeneration can have a devastating effect on your eyesight as you get older! It can sometimes take 12 months to ’see’ these benefits.

Other nutrients are doing similar jobs in other parts of the body. This is going on at cellular level but you may be totally unaware of it.

Is it possible that I could feel any bad effects after I start taking Total Balance?

Yes it is. Depending upon the state of your health you may experience symptoms such as nausea and even Headaches over the first few days. This can occur if you have high levels of Toxins in your body. Total Balance helps activate your systems to help get rid of them, sometimes resulting in these mild temporary side effects. If you experience this reduce the dose rate until they pass and make sure that you drink plenty of pure water to help flush your system.

I have a problem with Depression. Is it likely that I will notice a difference?

Yes, it is very likely that you will. The neuronutrients included in the formula have been shown in multiple clinical studies to be of considerable benefit to people suffering from Depression and stress.

Will Total Balance Mens Plus interfere with other prescription medications?

As with all Supplements caution must be applied particularly if you are on medication of any sort. Total Balance contains ingredients such as gingko Biloba which help thin the blood so if you are on blood thinning medication this has to be taken into account. However, we have kept the amount to within safety limits for most prescription drugs.

Nonetheless, if you are using prescription drugs please let your health professional know that you are using this product. It is very rare that they will object, but play it safe and let them know. The same cautions apply to pregnant and lactating women.

I am taking Proscar as prescribed by my GP. Is it safe to take Total Balance Mens Plus with this?

As our Total Balance Mens Plus formula is an all-in-one natural product it should be safe to take with most other pharmaceutical medications. However, as with all medications you should discuss taking this supplement with your physician. We recommend leaving a 3–4 hour gap between taking any prescription medications and taking your supplementation.

I have a problem with my testosterone levels, will I notice a difference?

Yes, it is very possible you will notice quite a difference. It is not uncommon for testosterone levels to diminish with age, with testosterone often being converted to estrogen. Total Balance Men’s Plus contains Chrysin to help combat this occurrence.

I am taking other nutritional Supplements and natural medications. Is this ok?

Generally yes, but it is usually unnecessary and doesn’t make economic sense unless you have been diagnosed with a specific deficiency. There are risks associated with taking high doses of certain Vitamins and Minerals. For example, high doses of Vitamin C can actually contribute to the production of free radicals. The levels that are contained in Total Balance are sufficient even if you are on a less than optimal diet. The manner in which they are combined within the formula enables the smaller doses to be much more effective than those found in a typical ‘multi’.

Vitamins and Minerals are the cheapest ingredients in the formula. If they were needed we would have increased the amounts with minimal impact on the cost.

The exception to this is calcium which some women need an additional amount of. This is why we formulated a separate stand alone calcium product.

What else can I do to help myself?

To reach optimum health it is always important to ensure a generally healthy lifestyle with any supplement regime. Exercise, even moderate exercise, has proven overall health benefits to strengthen your Immune System, heart, muscles, Circulation and joints. A healthy and balanced diet of complete Vitamins, Minerals, essential enzymes, Amino Acids and trace elements is also essential and will help to keep your heart healthy as well as your overall health.

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 resistance 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.
  • The potency of some ingredients can be enhanced as much as five fold!
  • Greater convenience as they do not have to be taken with a meal.
