Pass the Butter Please!

This is interesting.

Margarine was originally manufactured to fatten turkeys. When it killed the turkeys,

the people who had put all the money into the research wanted a payback so they put their heads together to figure out what to do with this product to get their money back. It was a white substance with no food appeal so they added the yellow coloring and sold it to people to use in place of butter. How do you like that? They have come out with some clever new flavourings..

DO YOU KNOW the difference between margarine and butter?

Both have the same amount of calories. Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at 8 grams compared to 5 grams.

Eating margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53% over eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent Harvard Medical Study.

Eating butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in other foods. Butter has many nutritional benefits where margarine has a few only because they are added! Butter tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavors of other foods. Butter has been around for centuries where margarine has been around for less than 100 years .

And now, for Margarine...

Very high in Trans fatty acids.
Triple risk of coronary heart disease .
Increases total cholesterol and LDL (this is the bad cholesterol) and lowers HDL cholesterol, (the good cholesterol)

Increases the risk of cancers up to five fold..

Lowers quality of breast milk.

Decreases immune response.

Decreases insulin response.

Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC.

This fact alone was enough to have me avoiding margarine for life and anything else that is hydrogenated (this means hydrogen is added, changing the molecular structure of the substance).

You can try this yourself:
Purchase a tub of margarine and leave it in your garage or shaded area.
Within a couple of days you will note a couple of things:

* no flies, not even those pesky fruit flies will go near it (that should tell you something) * it does not rot or smell differently because it has no nutritional value ; nothing will grow on it. Even those teeny weeny microorganisms will not a find a home to grow.

Why? Because it is nearly plastic .
Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?

EUROWAVE - What's really going on during your treatment?~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Some Commonly Asked Questions:

"Will I lose Weight?"

No, the treatment itself focuses on inch loss not weight, because it's your inches that stop you from wearing the clothes that you want. A person going to the gymwill sometimes actually weigh more than someone who doesn't work out even though they are smaller because they are toned.

"How much can I lose?"

There will be a measureable difference after your first session ... usually between 1 - 3" ... after 10 sessions we could expect to see 2" from your tummy, 2" from your waist and 1" from your rib cage!!!!

"How often should I do these treatments for best results?"

Twice a week is good but three times is perfect.

"How long will the results last?"

After just one treatment results should last for at least 6-8 days ... after a series of 10 treatments, with no change in lifestyle, results should last for up to 8 months!!

"Can I do more than one part of my body at a time?"

Yes, you can do up to 3 treatments in one day on three different body parts (i.e., front of thighs, bum lift and abdomen). You should have at least one day off in between days of treatment, though.

"What will I feel during the treatment?"

Once you are hooked up and the machine is turned on there will be a 2 minute warmup period where we are stimulating the superficial muscles, the muscles closest to the surface ... these are the muscles that you also work the most at the gym. Duringthis period we are also stimulating the lymphatic system which is the body's waste disposal system, which is always good as a bad lymphatic drainage system can lead to fluid retention and cellulite.

During the next 16 minutes we will be steadily increasing the intensity to a comfortable level where the DEEPER muscles will be worked for optimal toning and slimming. Eurowave is beneficial in that it doesn't "just" work the superficial muscles, but it also works the deep muscle tissue ... it's these muscles, especially in women, that cause so many of our problems. They stretch during pregnancy and childbirth, are cut during C Sections and Hysterectomies and stretch during normal weight gain.

"How does this work with my normal workouts at the gym?"

Eurowave can be used to enhance recovery from personal training. Increased bloodflow to the muscles helps deliver nutrients necessary for recovery and subsequent growth while the pumping action of the treatment (stimulation/relaxation) helps to remove waste products, mainly lactic acid, from these muscles.

EMS will enable muscles to relax quicker and more completely. This in itself alsoserves to increase blood flow to and from the muscles. Several athletes have reported muscle spasms following their workouts, especially in their calves and hamstrings.

EMS is a very effective means of relieving these spasms. Following very intense workouts, edema or fluid can occur. Such swelling inhibits recovery. The pumping action of EMS training can reduce edema and promote recoveryas discussed before.

"How about EMS for Back Pain?"

EMS has been show to block pain signals referred to your brain. By stimulating alternate sensory mechanisms, EMS can reduce pain and like soreness from workouts or injury sites as well as swelling (as mentioned above).

EUROWAVE - Rapid Inch Loss Technology

Targeted Electrical Muscle Stimulation

EUROWAVE is a machine that creates instant, specific inch loss using electrical muscle stimulation (or EMS), that has been used in the UK for over 25 years and Canada for 10 years now. Eurowave is a safe and effective way to improve muscle tone and body shape.

There are three types of EMS:

  1. Personal (low voltage, usually battery powered) or portable devices stimulate "already developed" muscle bundles. The low voltage is usually enough to keep muscles in a toned condition but not enough to actually build new muscle

  2. Professional (110/220 volt) such as EUROWAVE improves the appearance of Cellulite, creates inch loss, lifts, tones and reshapes the body.

  3. Medical has existed for some time in hospitals, chiropractic and physiotherapy locations to be used in cases of nerve damage, pain and/or post accident/surgical rehab.

EMS is a very safe and simple procedure. Microcurrents are applied to the muscle fibers of a specific treatment area, stimulating them to rhythmically contract and release. Basically, EMS is an extensive fitness therapy:

15 minutes of EMS is equal to 48 hours of nonstop gym exercise!!

Also, 18 minutes of EMS on the abdominal muscles is like 200 situps!!

Besides firming muscles, EMS also increases the metabolism, fluid circulation and oxygenation of the treated area making it wonderful tool in the fight against Cellulite.

The Medical Advisory Committee has allowed the use of EMS systems by atheletes since the 1972 Olympics. Bodybuilders, professional atheletes, physiotherapists and sports doctors use EMS systems

to supplement regular workout routines

EUROWAVE programs provide what is not possible from dieting and exercise programs alone
a boost in body shaping results!!

EUROWAVE (EMS) can rapidly help you create the body shape you want and support it.

Sweet "POISON" - Diet Sodas Are Killing Us!!

(Quotation from Dr. H. J. Roberts report on ASPARTAME)

If it says 'SUGAR FREE' on the label; DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT! I have spent several days lecturing at the WORLD ENVIRONMENTAL CONFERENCE on 'ASPARTAME,' marketed as 'Nutra Sweet,' 'Equal,' and 'Spoonful.'

In the keynote address by the EPA, it was announced that in the United States in 2001 there is an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus.

It was difficult to determine exactly what toxin was causing this to be rampant. I stood up and said that I was there to lecture on exactly that subject. I will explain why Aspartame is so dangerous:
When the temperature of this sweetener exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in ASPARTAME converts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. Formic acid is the poison found in the sting of fire ants. The methanol toxicity mimics, among other conditions, multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus.

Many people were being diagnosed in error. Although multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, Methanol toxicity is!

Systemic lupus has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers.

The victim usually does not know that the Aspartame is the culprit. He or she continues its use; irritating the lupus to such a degree that it may become a life-threatening condition.

We have seen patients with systemic lupus become asymptotic, once taken off diet sodas.

In cases of those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, most of the symptoms disappear. We've seen many cases where vision loss returned and hearing loss improved markedly.

This also applies to cases of tinnitus and fibromyalgia.
During a lecture, I said, 'If you are using ASPARTAME (Nutra Sweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc) and you suffer from

• fibromyalgia symptoms,
• spasms,
• shooting, pains, numbness in your legs,
• Cramps,
• Vertigo,
• Dizziness,
• Headaches,
• Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
• Joint pain,
• Unexplainable depression,
• anxiety attacks,
• slurred speech,
• blurred vision,
• or memory loss

you probably have ASPARTAME poisoning!'

People were jumping up during the lecture saying, 'I have some of these symptoms. Is it reversible?'


STOP drinking diet sodas and be alert for Aspartame on food labels! Many products are fortified with it! This is a serious problem.

Dr. Espart (one of my speakers) remarked that so many people seem to be symptomatic for MS and during his recent visit to a hospice; nurse stated that six of her friends, who were heavy Diet Coke addicts, had all been diagnosed with MS. This is beyond coincidence!

Diet soda is NOT a diet product! It is a chemically altered, multiple SODIUM (salt) and ASPARTAME containing product that actually makes you crave carbohydrates.

It is far more likely to make you GAIN weight!

These products also contain formaldehyde, which stores in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and thighs.

Formaldehyde is an absolute toxin and is used primarily to preserve 'tissue specimens.'

Many products we use every day contain this chemical but we SHOULD NOT store it IN our body!

Dr. H. J. Roberts stated in his lectures that once free of the 'diet products' and with no significant increase in exercise; his patients lost an average of 19 pounds over a trial period.

Aspartame is especially dangerous for diabetics.

We found that some physicians, who believed that they had a patient with retinopathy, in fact, had symptoms caused by Aspartame. The Aspartame drives the blood sugar out of control. Thus diabetics may suffer acute memory loss due to the fact that aspartic acid and phenylalanine are NEUROTOXIC when taken without the other amino acids necessary for a good balance.

Treating diabetes is all about BALANCE.

Especially with diabetics, the Aspartame passes the blood/brain barrier and it then deteriorates the neurons of the brain; causing various levels of brain damage, including:

• Seizures,
• Depression,
• Manic depression,
• Panic attacks,
• Uncontrollable anger and rage.

Consumption of Aspartame causes these same symptoms in non-diabetics as well.
Documentation and observation also reveal that thousands of children diagnosed with ADD and ADHD have had complete turnarounds in their behavior when these chemicals have been removed from their diet.

So called 'behavior modification prescription drugs' (Ritalin and others) are no longer needed. Truth be told, they were never NEEDED in the first place! Most of these children were being 'poisoned' on a daily basis with the very foods that were 'better for them than sugar.'

It is also suspected that the Aspartame in thousands of pallets of diet Coke and diet Pepsi consumed by men and women fighting in the Gulf War, may be partially to blame for the well-known Gulf War Syndrome.

Dr. Roberts warns that it can cause birth defects, i.e. mental retardation, if taken at the time of conception and during early pregnancy.

Children are especially at risk for neurological disorders and should NEVER be given artificial sweeteners. There are many different case histories to relate of children talking about a plague of neurological diseases directly caused by the use of this deadly poison.'

Herein lies the problem:

There were Congressional Hearings when Aspartame was included in 100 different products and strong objection was made concerning its use. Since this initial hearing, there have been two subsequent hearings, and still nothing has been done. The drug and chemical lobbies have very deep pockets.

Sadly, MONSANTO'S patent on Aspartame has EXPIRED!

There are now over 5,000 products on the market that contain this deadly chemical and there will be thousands more introduced.

Everybody wants a 'piece of the Aspartame pie.'

I assure you that MONSANTO, the creator of Aspartame, knows how deadly it is.

And isn't it ironic that MONSANTO funds, among others, the American Diabetes Association, the American Dietetic Association and the Conference of the American College of Physicians?

This has been recently exposed in the New York Times.

These [organizations] cannot criticize any additives or convey their link to MONSANTO because they take money from the food industry and are required to endorse their products.

Senator Howard Metzenbaum wrote and presented a bill that would require label warnings on products containing Aspartame, especially regarding pregnant women, children and infants.

The bill would also institute independent studies on the known dangers and the problems existing in the general population regarding behavioral symptoms.
The bill was killed.

It is known that the powerful drug and chemical lobbies are responsible for this, letting loose the hounds of disease and death on an unsuspecting and uninformed public. Well, you're informed now!

I Was Sick for ONLY TWO Days!!!!

I just have to share with you my personal testimonial and how I used my treatments to avoid something that could have ended up being a serious "SINUS INFECTION" or, worse yet, "BRONCHITIS".

Because I've had both in the past (at least 13 years ago) I am well aware of the symptoms and the timeframe that this could have taken to get control over, not to mention GET RID OF. So I have to share with you how "I" avoided the slippery slope of being miserable for days if not weeks.

I went to bed Tuesday evening a bit congested with a slight sore throat. As the night progressed I became extremely congested and filled with sinus "phlegm". Miserable night!!! By Wednesday, this had all progressed to feelings of aching all over as well as feverish with chills. I cancelled my work day yet still came into the spa to give myself a "detox infrared body wrap" ... I started out with an internal temperature of 100 degrees and goosebumpy.

What a great treatment as I finally was warmed to the core (core temperature was raised to 101.8 degrees) and I really was sweating. I then went home, continuing to drink large amounts of "liquid Calcium Bentonite Clay" ... I was exhausted and still chilly ... took a couple of Ibuprofen at bedtime just because everything hurt so bad once again.

This night's sleep was wrought with bouts of sweating followed by chilling but I got up feeling MUCH better ... not a 100% yet, though. Once again, cancelled my work day yet came into the spa for a "Spa Feng Shui Infrared Capsule" treatment, knowing that the vibration would really help shake things up in my sinuses. What a great feeling afterwards. Things really started to move after that.

GREAT night of sleep this second evening. Here I am today, Friday, back to work and feeling almost 100%. I am presently sitting here writing this while my feet are in the "detox footbath treatment". You should see the "excess acid" that is coming out ... I have NEVER seen as much as in this day's treatment. Possibly the Bentonite Clay (9.75 on the pH scale) or the treatments I've been doing lately loosening it up but something is definitely helping to move more than normal amounts of ACID out of my system ... YIPPEE

Not only was I doing the above mentioned treatments (that I offer in my spa) but I was also a fanatic about "sinus flushing" with salt water (Highly Recommended), drinking lots of water and taking my Calcium Bentonite Clay.

In the past, head colds for me used to always end up as either a full-blown Sinus Infection or Bronchitis. Once again, though, I have sped this process up and eliminated the "consequence" by using the treatments I offer ... you can see why I believe in them so much.
