Welcome to our second edition for this year. We will endeavour to empower and assist you to create well-being in your life with our products and keep you updated and informed with our newsletters.

Our training sessions started in February and we have managed to fit in three separate sets of training. The first launch was out at our offices at the end of February 2003. We had strong support from the health shops, some dieticians and Naturo Paths. The second training session was in Randburg, our strongest support being from Dieticians, nursing sisters and pharmacy sales assistances. Our Pretoria of training session was held at the Psoriasis Total Care Centre where our strongest support was from the health professionals. The interaction in all three sessions was excellent and all the parties concerned we able to learn from each other. Thank you for your valued support in this very vital area of our business.

The next training session will be in Rosebank / Sandton area on 10 of April from 07h30 - 10h00. Following on to this session will be a session at our office on 8 May 2003 from 13h30 - 17h00. Please contact the office for more details.

It is with regret that we have to inform our loyal supporters of Lifeforce Honey that we are going to discontinue this range as soon as our present stock runs out. We have had endless problems in getting stock to supply our customers. We have explored many different avenues and it seems like the doors have closed for us.

As we head into autumn, we should start preparing our bodies for the long cold winter. What a better way to start than by strengthening the Immune System? The motto remains that PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE.

Always start with your diet as the 1st defence against illnesses.

  • Eat plenty of colourful, varied fresh fruit and vegetables, especially those that are orange (the more pips in a fruit the higher the Vitamin C content) red, and purple such as berries, sweet potatoes and red peppers.
  • Eat plenty of seeds (such as pumpkin and sunflower) as snacks, in salads and on cereal.
  • Include plenty of Vitamin C rich foods in your diet, such as broccoli, peas, cabbage, lemons, oranges, lemons and strawberries.
  • Drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration - water is always best, but try nutritious fruit juices, vegetable soup and eat some fruit bars.
  • Drink Rooibos tea or other herbal teas daily.
  • Supplement with multivitamin & minerals and at least 1000mg - 2000mg Vitamin C (Chewy C / High C Powder) and an Immune complex (Immuno Aid Combo) on a daily basis. Your prevention levels regarding supplementation can be tripled when fighting a specific infection.
  • Don't smoke, minimise alcohol, tea, coffee and especially diary products.

Your immune strength is totally dependent on an optimal intake of vitamins and minerals and other immune boosting nutrients. Since no nutrients work in isolation, it's a good idea to supplement a good diet with a high strength multivitamin and mineral (such as B Right Special or Barley Grass Plus). This combination of nutrients at the even modest levels can have a strong effect on boosting immunity.

Scientific studies have shown that those on supplements have fewer infections, have a stronger immune system when measured by blood test determination of immune factors and are generally healthier than those on placebos or no supplementations.

As Flu Complications rank in the top 10 causes of death, you can consider having a flu vaccination if you are open to this form of therapy. There are some groups of people who are totally unsuitable for vaccinations though!

Do not get vaccinated if you are:

  • In the 1st trimester of pregnancy.
  • Hypersensitive to egg protein.
  • Have a high temperature or infection at the time of expected vaccination.

Speak to your health practitioner or pharmacist for more details.

Clumsiness - dropping things and bumping into things
Forgetfulness (memory lapses)
Fatigue (very tired)

Tips on how to heal your body without using normal prescription drugs

I. Start by using Zinc tablets, not in the usually prescribed manner, but rather break the tablet into quarters and use under the tongue every 2 hours until the infection is cleared.
II. Use 2 x SSS formula tablets, 3 x Magcal tablets and 1 x Magnesium Oxide tablet as one dose, every 2 hours during the day until you feel better. It is also advisable to take Slow K 600mg or Chelated Potassium 2 times a day during this phase.
III. High C Powder - take a ½ teaspoon every 2 hours until your tummy works very loosely. Then calculate how many doses you have taken up until then. Cut back by a ½ teaspoon and take that amount 3 times per day until the infection clears. Vitamin C increases the percentage of B-lymphocyte cells and enhances humoral (antibody) immunity responses.
IV. Immunoforce drops 20 drops under the tongue - 2 hourly until infection is cleared. Or products like Cat's Claw, Echinacea, Berry extracts.

The above treatment can be used together or individualised, as you prefer. If you have an impaired immune system it is recommended that you use all of the suggested treatments together.

What is the difference between a cold and the flu?

Symptoms of a cold

  • Sore throat
  • Sneezing
  • Nasal discharge
  • Headaches
  • Coughing

A cold is a milder form of an upper respiratory infection usually due to a virus such as the Rhinovirus infection.

Flu symptoms

  • Fever
  • Respiratory symptoms such as coughing, sore throat, runny nose
  • Headache, muscle aches and often tiredness and fatigue.

Most people spontaneously recover from flu within a week, but can be very tired for some time after recovery.

If you have an impaired immune system you may develop serious and potentially life-threatening complications such as Bronchitis or Pneumonia. This can occur at any age, but the elderly, those under 5 years, as well as those suffering from chronic diseases are more prone to serious flu complications.

Flu weakens the natural defences of the body and additional infections by other harmful microorganisms can occur, delaying complete recovery.

As you will notice our promotions can assist you to start preparing for this season. One of the ways would be through the added use of products such as ADE & ZINC, GARLIC & PARSLEY, ZINC GLUCONATE, AND BALANCED B COMPLEX, CHEWY C, HIGH C POWDER AND ONE OF OUR NEWEST PRODUCTS: IMMUNO AID COMBO.

Vitamin A D E & Zinc is a nutritional supplement with a combination of vitamins A, E, D & Zinc for more effective use in one tablet. Best absorbed and utilised by using together with Vitamin C and Selenium. Vitamin A & E function as tissue antioxidants, neutralising harmful free radicals. Vitamin D helps the body utilise calcium for development of strong bones and teeth. Vitamin E helps the body protect unsaturated fatty acids & Vitamin A. Deficiency causes shrinking of the Thymus (the master gland of the immune system), possibly due to the fact for its requirement for the normal release of vitamin A from the liver, which is needed for normal thymus activity. The mineral Zinc aids with many enzyme activities needed for the elimination or routinely produced cancer cells. Zinc is responsible for the metabolism of Vitamins A and B, as well as fatty acids. Aids with many enzymes activities, and energy production. It can assist with immune system and energy production.

A combination of Calcium Gluconate, Hesperidin, Rosehip, Rutin, Vitamin C, Citrus Bioflavonoids & Acerola. Vitamin C is the backbone of any immune boosting programme. It is strongly antiviral as well as being anti-bacterial and has proved successful against every virus tested. In addition, it increases the vital soldiers in the immune army such as B and T lymphocytes and interferon and it also helps gobble up bacteria and other 'rubbish' generated when you are under attack. In recent research it was consistently found that those who supplemented with Vitamin C had shorter length colds with fewer symptoms.

LIFEFORCE HIGH C POWDER (100grams powder)

Zinc acts as a traffic policeman, directing and overseeing the efficient flow of body processes and the maintaining of enzyme systems and cells. Zinc is essential for protein synthesis. It governs the contractibility of muscles and helps in the formation of Insulin. It is important for blood stability and in maintaining the body's acid-alkaline balance. Zinc exerts a normalising effect on the prostate and is important in the development of all reproductive organs. New studies indicate Zinc's importance in brain functioning and the treatment of Schizophrenia. There is strong evidence of its requirement for the synthesis of DNA. Excessive sweating can cause a loss of as much as 3mg of Zinc per day. Most of the Zinc contained in foods is lost in processing, or never exits in substantial amount due to nutrient-poor soil. Zinc chelated deficiency can cause a depression of cell-mediated (lymphocyte) immune responses and the shrinking of the thymus (the master gland of the immune system). Lack of this mineral may bring about lymphoid atrophy with a slight decrease in T-cell numbers in the peripheral blood. Not only is the number of T-helpers cells decreased, but also noted is a decrease in the activity of facteur thumic serique (from the French, meaning thymus blood factor).

Enzyme shortage, chronic urinary problems, insufficient immune system, prostate problems, Blood sugar disturbances, Ph balance of blood. Possibly Prostatic hypertrophy (noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland) and arteriosclerosis.

When grasses are harvested at a young age, they have a different chemical makeup from their adult counterparts. Dr Yoshihide Hagiwara, after 20 years of intensive research said, "It is clear to me, that the leaves of the cereal grasses provide the nearest thing this planet offers to the perfect food. For reasons of palatability, higher nutrient content, and favourable harvesting features, green barley stands out as the best among these".

Select nutrients and amino acids can actually heighten and sharpen your cognitive performance by stimulating the production of neurotransmitters (those specialized chemical messengers in the brain that contribute to mental alertness, concentration and optimal brain function), improving blood flow to the brain, and restore brain cell metabolism to more youthful levels. Refocus was medically created to improve memory and accelerate mental performance. Gingko Biloba extracts, Vinpocetine, Acetyl-L-Carnitine have been included to increase blood supply to the brain and boost oxygen uptake and glucose utilization for greater recall.
