Study shows how diet can prevent a mid-life microbiome crisis and improve brain health

This a great article that ties in cognitive skills as it relates to prebiotics and your “gut” health. As you read you learn: “A number of physiological and psychological changes occur as we age, and many studies have shown that our gut microbiome also changes as we grow older. A fascinating new study is suggesting that a shift in gut bacteria in our middle-age could trigger a process that plays a role in cognitive decline in our later years. And diet may be the key to encouraging the growth of beneficial bacteria that benefit healthy brain aging.”


But we have products that can aid in this area of cognitive health too, don’t we? Carnosine supports the health of the brain and X39 boosts health at the cellular level supporting, among other things, good digestive health.  So eat right, stay hydrated and pay attention to how you support better digestive health with prebiotics.  And use LifeWave products!  Encourage others to the same to stay sharp as we all work to be younger next year!

New Study Shows: Stress Eating Causes More Weight Gain Than Eating When Calm

This great article, from the Cell Metabolism journal, highlights findings that support the value of adding Aeon to your daily regimen. Aeon is clinically proven to reduce stress in your body and it promotes relaxation. One needn’t read any further than the opening line in this article to sit up and take note: “A striking new study from Australian researchers has discovered that eating while stressed may lead to greater weight gain than if the same caloric load was consumed in a stress-free environment.” What!? Yes, that is what the study shows. I don’t know about you, but all things being equal, I would like to NOT gain weight if I can help it!  Read this article to learn more… and put Aeon to work!


The Science of Photobiomodulation

Photobiomodulation, or PBM for short, is a great term you can use when discussing our unique form of wellness technology with someone who wants to hear more about the technology, after you have shown them the X39™ video.  Recently David Schmidt our Founder and CEO, held a general product training webinar on our technology and discussed how the science of PBM has gone mainstream. He referenced a great article on it that can be seen here. It was written by Michael R. Hamblin, PhD., a Harvard Medical School associate professor and an affiliate at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.  What is significant about this article is that it gets into the role low-level light plays in various forms of wellness therapy and validates the concept associated with what LifeWave patches do using light to stimulate the skin for balancing our biochemistry. It’s great to know experts at the highest level in academic research already know the power of light in helping the body perform better or heal faster… and LifeWave is there!

New Years’ Resolutions for Network Marketers

Every New Year’s so many of us make resolutions that often we end up breaking after just a couple of weeks. If your resolution is to make this your best year in network marketing, then here are two resolutions that are easy to keep that can make a huge difference in your results this year!


  1. Prospect Every Day

Pick a realistic number of people that you will talk with about LifeWave each day; how many prospects will you commit to approaching every day. Start small so you can easily stick to this. Even if you picked only one person a day, that equals 30 people a month. That’s more prospecting than 95% of network marketers. Of course you want to be sure you are prepared with what you will say, or ask, to open the conversation … and what your first “exposure” will be. Whether it is a meeting you invite them to, a video you suggest they watch, a brochure you hand them to read, a product experience you just have to share… decide to have a conversation with X amount of people a day… and go for it!   Be realistic. Set a goal that you can see yourself achieving. You know what is possible in this business. Working hard and smart in LifeWave can really pay off! But decide, set a goal… and do it! You will easily increase your chances of growing success by doing this one simple thing.

  1. Read Every Day

Self-education is easily as important as formal education. Eric Worre preaches this. As he says: “Formal education can make you a nice living… Self-education can make you a fortune.” When you focus on what is important to get ahead… and read about it and practice it and become better at it… that becomes a new capability you can put to work to help you grow in business… to help grow your business.

You may have a stack of books that you have been meaning to get to. Now’s the time. If not now, when?? Make a resolution to read 30 minutes each day to improve yourself. 30 minutes each day is a book or two a month! The knowledge you gain, the confidence you develop from knowing more, you’ll find it to be priceless.

So make a New Year’s Resolution to read more to improve your abilities. It will pay off!


Ingredients to Watch Out for If You Have Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin can put a total damper on your beauty routine. Testing new products can be a nightmare because you never know what’s going to cause a major flare-up.

But just because you’re sensitive doesn’t mean your skin can’t look healthy. You just have to know which ingredients are most likely to cause trouble. So, here is a list of no-no ingredients you may want to avoid.

  1. Preservatives

Preservatives are necessary for keeping any product fresh and stable. Some preservatives, like parabens, cause an allergic reaction in certain people. Parabens are more likely to irritate those who already have skin issues like eczema, psoriasis, and contact dermatitis. Another preservative to look for in your cosmetics and skin products is methylisothiazolinone, which is a high-hazard allergen according to the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database.

  1. Sulphates

Sulphates are cleansing agents that help create a rich, foaming lather. They can prove too harsh for some, drying out skin and hair and contributing to rashes and blemishes. Try sulphate free products.

  1. Dyes

If you have sensitive skin, you may want to talk to your hairdresser before booking your next dye appointment. Paraphenylenediamine (PPD) is a common ingredient found in permanent hair dyes that can cause an allergic reaction. The result is a rash at the hairline, nape, and around the ears.

  1. Harsh exfoliants

Yes, you can use exfoliating products if you have sensitive skin, but the key here is moderation. It’s important to avoid using products that are too strong. If you prefer to use a product with glycolic or salicylic acid, start off with a very low percentage and slowly work your way up. There are also plenty of DIY recipes online using oats and honey that work great for sensitive skin.

While this list is a good starting point, never skip the patch test when you incorporate a new product into your routine. You want to apply a small amount to your neck or wrist first. Then, wait 24 hours to see if there is a reaction. If there isn’t any redness or itching, it’s OK to use on your face or body.
