Many people in sport take supplements and one of those we know takes some of Xenca’s fabulous products is the current Britain’s strongest man, Laurence Shahlaei. Hopefully people will realise that top athletes and sports people do not give out testimonials lightly.  So when they do speak out about a product, they do so because they find real benefit from taking it.  Here are some of his comments on Xenca’s amazing green superfood, Five a day+.   

“The Xenca Five a Day+ supplement is unlike anything I’ve used before.  Very simple to take, it’s a quick and convenient way of getting lots of green super foods into your body. Since taking this I feel like I have more energy, it aids my recovery and helps my dietary system work much more efficiently.  Nutrition was always something I neglected in the past, but over the last 6 months I have made it a priority and the Xenca Five a Day+ has become one of the staple products in my daily supplementation.”

Fermenting Foods – Some Great Info And Ideas

One of our favourite health information web sites, Dr Mercola, had this excellent information on the benefits of fermented foods.  Having been fans of Dr Mercola for many years we know his work is well worth reading.  It explains how modern science is now proving the incredible value they can give to the human body.  

These benefits range from improving beneficial gut flora (probiotics) and giving the body an available source of vitamin K2.  Just these two things alone will give amazing health benefits we know from previous research.  

We also loved the well explained and detailed video lower down the page showing the ways fermented foods can be made.  Dr Mercola also explains how he found ways of dramatically improving the benefits fermented foods can give, using some specific products, after working with scientists over many years. 

We will be adding fermented foods to our diet program in the coming months as they are easy to make and quite obviously give fantastic health benefits.  

Hope you like the info, if so drop us a line or post a comment on our Facebook page.

Interesting Article About Sugar

I did find an article quite interesting recently in The Telegraph about John Yudkin, who had tried to warn the world about the negative health effects of consuming sugar many years ago in his excellent book: ‘Pure White And Deadly’.  He was a new person to me when I read this article, but his work looks excellent.

In the information it mentions his nemesis, Ancel Keys, a nutritionist, much of whose work was later discredited, according to many people, as not being thorough enough.  (One such example of this is the high cholesterol, saturated fat and heart disease link, now utterly disproved many times, especially by Uffe Ravnskov MD PhD who wrote the cholesterol myths, well worth reading.)  Plus this link has some quite interesting stuff as well

It also mentions that massive food corporations used Ancel Keys work as the basis for promoting ‘low fat’ foods and they were adding sugar to make them more appetising in effect.  Therefore Ancel Keys to them was the ‘horse they backed’ and John Yudkin would have spelled disaster for many of these corporations marketing wise if he proved to be correct.  No prizes for guessing who ‘got the nod’ there then I suppose?

Now Yudkin’s work on sugar and its negative effects on heart disease, cancer, diabetes and other major illnesses is being revisited.  One such person who has done a lot on this is Robert Lustig, Professor of paediatric endocrinology at The University of California.  Who unknowingly was an advocate of Yudkin’s work, as he discovered later.  There is an excellent video from Robert Lustwig as well.  

Yudkin’s original book was highly sought after once it went out of print, but now Penguin Books have re-printed ‘Pure White And Deadly’, according to this article.   We hope that this re-ignite the debate on sugar.  

I did like this quote from the piece from the Telegraph about Prof. Robert Lustig, which is a common problem for independent science and scientists: 

If you look up Robert Lustig on Wikipedia, nearly two-thirds of the studies cited there to repudiate Lustig’s views were funded by Coca-Cola. But Gillespie believes the message is getting through. “More people are avoiding sugar, and when this happens companies adjust what they’re selling,” he says. It’s just a shame, he adds, that a warning that could have been taken on board 40 years ago went unheeded: “Science took a disastrous detour in ignoring Yudkin. It was to the detriment of the health of millions.”

We have been confident that this information about the dangers of sugar and the need for various fats in our diets for many years, but were often dismissed as a bit bonkers, as are many others we know of, including Yudkin we suspect.  

For those that believe that there is a safe alternative to sugar in artificial sweeteners, they should check out an excellent website and book called ‘Sweet Poison’ by Dr Janet Starr-Hull.   This is another dangerous set of man made products we believe. 

Fortunately a lot of the information we have passed around over the years has now been proven to be correct in many cases, even when mainstream medicine stated the opposite, in fact still are in some ways.  We often put a lot of this info on here and also on Our Facebook Page as well.  So if you want to see more health info that we find, we suggest you ‘like’ our Facebook page as well as this web site. 

Part of our job we believe is to give people options on health that can be checked by them. We are always learning more great stuff from some brilliant people whose work is of great benefit we believe and we try to check everything we post thoroughly for obvious reasons. Not everyone will agree with some or even any of it, that is their choice.  In the end it is about who you believe.  You pays your money and takes your choice in that regard.

It is up to us all to look after our own health in the end.  That is only possible with good, solid information we are sure.  Hence why we spend so much time passing this kind of information around for others to check for themselves.

This also applies to our main health businesses such as using Bioflow products in our unique ways and Xenca’s superb nutritional supplements or health and beauty ranges.

We hope you enjoy the information.

Our Happy Customers Love Us And We love Helping Them

We always love to hear from our very happy customers, of which there are many thousands over the years, we are pleased to say.  It is especially nice when they pop in to see us again.  This was the case today when one such customer, Craig Roach, came back to thank us personally for the results that our treatment and products had achieved for him on his shoulder pain, hip pain and poor sleep.  We taught him how to use the products at home and he was very grateful that we had managed to help him change his life for the better. 

Craig had tried our free sample in our shop back in August 2012 and was so impressed by the difference he felt that he decided to try some of our products afterwards.  He is very grateful that he used us now.   (Not that people need a free sample from us, just our unique knowledge of how to use their own products themselves.  We call this our ‘Global Treatment Service’ and it is proving very popular so far.)

So today, 6th March 2014, we did our free demonstration on his wife for her breathing problems to show what we can do; as she was sceptical we could help her.  She was also impressed enough afterwards to order herself some products.  So once she gets them we will see how things go for her, but we are expecting another great testimonial from her as well though.

Plus they are also ordering some of the amazing superfood Five a day+.  We are looking forward to their finding out how incredibly good that product is as well.   People should really try Five a day+ out for a few months, they will soon realise how fantastic you feel when you take it.   It is truly the best supplement we have ever taken by far and we are confident the best nutritional value for money in the world.

Do you know someone in pain or poor health that needs our help?  :-D

We Have Treated Some Famous People In Our Time

We have demonstrated our treatment on and sold various products to many thousands of people since 1998.  This includes some possibly more well-known people such as; Ex Arsenal footballer Frank McLintockMagda Szubanski (Who starred in ‘Kath and Kim’), Natalie Mendoza who came in with Magda on the same day and was in ‘Hotel Babylon’ at the time, Haircut 100 singer/songwriter Nick Hayward of Haircut 100 fame (pictured below) (Possibly his best known hit is ‘fantastic day’).   

Nick Heyward

and professional International golfer Ian Woosnam (Most often known affectionately as Woosie). 

Ian Woosnam

We went over to Jersey to treat Woosie as he was suffering from severe back pain and M.E. and was unable to play golf or even walk for long, which was seriously affecting his golf back in 2007, after sadly having to withdraw from the Augusta Masters due to the problem.  After trying our treatment he was so impressed he bought quite a lot of products from us and for many years his career earnings improved massively as he was out of pain since using them.  

Possibly one of the most important ‘famous person’ we met was Janey Lee Grace from the Steve Wright in the Afternoon show on BBC Radio 2 who was suffering from Hip and Neck Pain.  Janey had heard about Bioflow previously from one of her listeners, but we did something that she had never heard of or seen before, a free sample treatment using Bioflow (Which is unique to us here at Changing Lives by the way) and she decided to try it.  Below is a picture taken outside our old shop when she popped back to see us a few months after we first met. 

Janey Lee Grace at our old shop

Janey very kindly wrote about the results of our free sample session on her and our unique work in two of her books.  The first book was ‘Imperfectly Natural Woman’ and the other was ‘Imperfectly Natural Baby and Toddler’.  (Though both unfortunately contain our old, now discontinued, web site and phone number as does the old sign above, our new correct contact details are on this web site)

Janey Lee Grace book photo

Here is a copy of some of the things she wrote about us on pages 168-9, including the testimonial of my very sceptical partner, Kathy, who had used Bioflow, with some help from me of course, to resolve her allegedly incurable ‘genetic’ Ankylosing Spondylitis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Dermatitis, PMS, circulation problems and severe High Blood Pressure.  Unfortunately there is a mistake as Kath had been pain free since 1999 so longer than 3 years in fact.

Janey Lee Grace about us 1Janey Lee Grace about us 2

Janey’s books are always an excellent read on various natural remedies and treatments not just what we do; trust us they are worth checking out.  However as she discovered; and subtly suggested in her first book in the section above, the ways we use Bioflow are utterly unique, as many of our customers, and their testimonials on our web site and Facebook page, hopefully go some way to proving.

Janey was very surprised we offered a free sample treatment as well as a 6 month money back guarantee on the products she bought from us.  We do this to show how confident we are in the level of results we can offer people.  After all with us it is all about the incredible results possible not just any old average results. 

Now we have added the incredibly effective Xenca nutrition range to our armoury, such as the amazing Five A Day+ superfood (Truly the best supplement we have ever taken, and we have tried many we can assure you), the Revitalise Collagen (Excellent for improving joint pain, arthritis or skin condition for example) to the stunning Nutrition and Wellbeing products and more, we can guarantee even better and faster results than people can imagine.  

If you know someone in pain or in poor health, anywhere in the world, please get them to check out what we offer.  Our success rate has surprised many thousands of people so far, even with conditions they have been told are incurable such as Fibromyalgia, ME, chronic fatigue, Lupus, Polymyalgia Rheumatica, Trigeminal Neuralgia and many, many more.

What is there to lose by checking us out?
