15 pounds lost on the MetaSwitch weight loss system!

I’m so excited! I’ve been trying to lose 10 pounds for the past 6 years with no success. I would manage to lose 5 pounds with diet and exercise, and then gain them back shortly after. No matter how much I exercised or how little I ate, I could not get rid of “the last 10 pounds”. I blamed the “changing hormones” (at my age)…and the potato chips I was craving from time to time!

Now, all of that is history! I started on the MetaSwitch weight loss system on September 8th, 2013, weighing 155 lbs. On December 8th, 2013, I weighed 140 lbs. I had lost 15 pounds! I did not change my eating habits, I did not exercise, I was not hungry and I DID NOT HAVE TO LIVE ON MEAL REPLACEMENT SHAKES!

All I did was to start taking the MetaSwitch weight loss! Two capsules 30 minutes before every meal. Almost immediately my potato chips cravings stop, and I was able to pass by their aisle without even taking a second look. Then my hunger diminished, I would feel full faster, so i naturally started to eat smaller portions.

Still, after one month I had lost only 5 pounds, and I become a little discouraged…my friends were losing a lot more left and right! Then it happened for me also. Somehow my metabolism woke up and I started losing and losing the extra weight and fat! with no changes on my exercise or eating habits!

Once, my goal was to get back to 140 pounds… Today, I know I can do even better than that. My new goal is 130! (my pre-pregnancy weight)

If you want to lose weight in a healthy way, and have tried everything (including those impossible meal replacement shakes), this is for you. You will not only lose weight, burn fat and cleanse your body, you will realize that a new, healthier lifestyle with better food and exercise habits is possible as your cravings diminish and your energy increases. I totally recommend the Meta Switch Weight Loss System!

Max International’s Switch Metabolic Enhancer supplement is designed to engage the body’s metabolic “master switch” known as “AMPK” (adenosine-monophosphate-activated protein kinase). This master switch is a major regulator of cellular energy, metabolism and even glutathione levels. This helps to control eating habits while efficiently burning through fuel and body fat. Switch works naturally with your body to improve your metabolic system without increasing your heart rate or blood pressure!

Switch contains Max’s patented RiboCeine technology which optimizes the body’s natural production of glutathione. Glutathione plays an irreplaceable role in the human body by defending against cellular damage, supporting the immune system, and removing harmful toxins. In a weight loss program this is particularly important because while losing weight, fat cells release toxins into your body. Glutathione plays a critical role in removing these toxins, helping create a cleaner, healthier you.

What is Riboceine

What is Riboceine
What is Riboceine

There is a molecule produced by every cell in your body that is called Glutathione (GSH). It is the primary protector and detoxifier of the cell. Scientists have discovered that about age 20 Glutathione production starts to decline, and it goes down about 1% per year. The toxins in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the stress we experience, radiation and pharmaceutical medications are some of the many contributors to the accelerated depletion of our body’s Glutathione.

For years, scientists have looked for ways to effectively raise glutathione levels. They tried to supplement with glutathione pills, but glutathione cannot be effectively absorbed through the intestinal tract,

They realized that Glutathione must be supplemented via its essential building blocks, the amino acids cysteine, glycine, and glutamic acid. While glycine and glutamic acid are readily available through regular diet, it is much more difficult to absorb the required amounts of cysteine. Until recently, N-acetyl Cysteine (NAC) was the most consistent means of enhancing the body’s ability of maintaining optimal glutathione levels. Many doctors use intravenous NAC to treat patients with Parkinson’s disease and Acetaminophen overdoses, but these treatments are short-lived and very expensive.

RiboCeine (also known as RibCys, or Rib Cys) is a patented molecule that has been shown to effectively deliver cysteine into the cell, enabling it to produce optimal amounts of glutathione. There are over twenty published, peer-reviewed scientific studies on Riboceine, funded by the National Institutes of Health and other scientific institutions (click here for PubMed Study ) (Click here for Ribcys review on journal of medicinal chemistry )

RiboCeine was developed after years of research by the renowned research scientist and medicinal chemist, Herbert T. Nagasawa, Ph.D and his team (click here for the Riboceine patent:  )

Dr. Nagasawa was a Professor of Medicinal Chemistry and Toxicology at the University of Minnesota for forty years and at the same time he was named Senior Career Research Scientist for the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Minneapolis. He was also Senior Editor of the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry and received an award from the Department of Homeland Defense for developing a three-minute oral application antidote against cyanide poisoning.

Dr. Nagasawa is driven to research ways to help humanity by improving health and wellness. Riboceine is the culmination of his personal drive and years of research and experience.

RiboCeine combines Ribose and Cysteine, nutrients that are naturally occurring in humans, to more effectively deliver cysteine directly to your cells. This groundbreaking compound is a demand-release nutrient, activated by the body’s cells. RiboCeine enters the bloodstream and is then used by the body to produce glutathione, the body’s master antioxidant, and ATP, the cell’s natural fuel and source of energy, when the body needs it.

We’ve been using Cellgevity, a supplement containing Riboceine since 2010 and have never felt better! Riboceine supplements are available exclusively through Max International authorized distributors. For more information or to order click here

Dale Carnegie How to win friends and influence people made easy!

dale carnegieWant to improve your communications skills? Here is our short version of the very important principles on Dale Carnegie How to win friends and influence people
“Part Two, How to make people like you” :
Chapter 1: Do This And You’ll Be Welcomed Anywhere
This Chapter talks about how everyone can be your friend if you are truly sincere in wanting their friendship. You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.  An individual who is not interested in those around him will have the most difficulty in life and hurt others. You have to be interested in people if you want to be successful in life. Genuinely wanting to get to know someone will win their attention even if they are the most sought-after person. If we want to make friends and influence people we have to put ourselves out there and do unselfish acts for them. When greeting friends do it with a smile and great enthusiasm, like you are very happy to see them. This must be done in a sincere way because people can tell when your hello or smile is untrue. Dale Carnegie finishes the chapter by saying if you want others to like you, and you want to develop real friendships and help others while helping yourself keep this principle in mind:
Principle 1: Become genuinely interested in other people.
Chapter 2: A Simple Way To Make A Good First Impression
This chapter talks about a simple but effective way of making a good first impression. Smiling is the tool one can use to win people over in all situations. Actions speak louder than words, a smile says, ” I like you, you make me happy. I am glad to see you.” That’s why dogs and babies make people happy. They are always truly happy and excited to see you. The effect of a smile is powerful, even when it is unseen. When meeting people you must have a good time if you expect them to have a good time. In order to be happy one must be able to control their own feelings.
Principle 2: Smile :)

Chapter 3: If You Don’t Do This You Are Headed For Trouble

This chapter goes over how people’s name are important to them and we should try to remember everyone by name. Some of the most prestigious people can name everyone they know by first name. That has gotten them very far in life. Some techniques to remember are their full name, asking them a few personal things about themselves. Do whatever you can so that the next time you them you can call them by their first name and ask them about whatever personal thing they told you. They will be very pleased. Someones name will help you work magic.
Principle 3: Remember a person’s name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language.
Chapter 4: An Easy Way To Become A Good Conversationalist
This chapter goes over how to keep  conversation going and by doing so the other person will be happy and interested in you. You will make an impression and they won’t forget you. Always make sure you are genuinely interested in what the person is saying, ask a lot of questions, and be a good listener and ask questions to keep the conversation going. People who interrupt, contradict and irritate will push people away. Things that will push people away don’t listen for long, talk about yourself and interrupt. Lastly don’t be a bore. Principle # $: To be a good conversationalist, be an attentive listener. To be interesting, be interested. Ask questions people will enjoy answering. Encourage them to talk about themselves and their accomplishments. 
Chapter 5: How To Interest People
This chapter talks about how to interest people in you and some examples. The way to a person’s heart is to talk about the things they treasure most. Roosevelt always had things to talk about no matter the subject he had something to say about it to start-up a conversation. Turns out before having a meeting with someone he would research things on whatever interested the other person. This made him interesting.
Principle 5: Talk in terms of the other person’s interests. 
Chapter 6: How To Make People Like You instantly
This chapter goes over how to get people to like you right away. You can get people to like you by mentioning something you admire about them. When you do this do it with the simple intention of making them feel good, not trying to get something out of them. There is one important law of human conduct that will bring us countless friends and happiness is by making people feel important. Don’t do this and you will encounter endless trouble. Human nature craves appreciation. Everyone wants to feel approval of who they come in contact with. But they want it to be sincere. Do onto others as you would have them do onto you describes it best. When asking for things do it in a polite manner. Little courteous phrases like “I’m sorry to trouble you,” ” Would you mind if?” etc. Everyone wants to feel important. Talk to people about themselves; they will talk for hours.
Principle 6- Make the other person feel important and do it sincerely.

Help your body heal itself! Alternative healing methods

By Alexandra Kicillof Brown

Therefore My people are gone into captivity, for want of knowledge; and their honorable men are famished, and their multitude are parched with thirst. Isaiah 5:13

The prophet Isaiah was talking about the Jewish people going into captivity due to their lack of knowledge of God; but today we can borrow this phrase to talk about another captivity that is also caused for lack of knowledge. I am talking about the captivity caused by illness and dependence on medical drugs due to lack of knowledge on alternative healing methods and how to help your body heal itself.

During my childhood and adolescence, I suffered from many health problems. Every winter I had laryngitis, pharyngitis, bronchitis and many other “itis”. During summertime, liver pain, stomach pain, the occasional throwing up after a very succulent barbecue…I had the pertinent medications on my night stand, always at hand just in case.

If this wasn’t enough, I also suffered from low blood pressure and the occasional dizziness, which made it hard for me to exercise (despite taking medicine everyday for this condition), from low blood sugar (I had to eat every few hours), nausea during long trips (Dramamine) and a “feeling of suffocation” that attacked me for many years and that no medicine could cure, which was qualified as “emotional illness” “epiglottis problem” “my fabrication” etc. It was only when I was 13 or 14 years old that good Dr. Ruda gave me an homeopathic remedy that I had to take before breakfast, and that had such a horrible taste that the suffocation feeling finally disappeared!

I must also mention that I was about 60 pounds overweight…which in turn caused me a certain level of depression, lack of energy and even shyness. I can say that my teenage years were not the happiest!

I remember the constant visits to the doctors, the medicines (including one to lose weight that almost kill me!) the dependence on other people’s knowledge.

Everything started to change for me when in the spring of ’83, due to a chance encounter (if there is such a thing) I started to learn and practice the “Pa-Kua Knowledge” in its most basic form, the martial art, with Master Victor Candal as my teacher.

This opened a door for me through which I advanced with a slow but steady step. A door to knowledge that allowed me to go from having a passive, dependent and reactive attitude towards my health and well-being, to developing an active, independent and pro-active attitude, and attitude of taking responsibility for my own physical and mental health and well-being. I decided to take charge of my health and help my body heal itself. I moved from the Health care system to a Self Care System and started to learn about different Alternative Healing methods.

When I say that “my people perish for lack of knowledge” I am referring to this very basic and essential knowledge: the knowledge that is needed to take care of our body, to prevent it from getting sick, to help it heal if necessary; the knowledge needed to take responsibility for our actions and emotions and the way in which they affect our being.

Alternative healing starts with you learning to listen to your body and being aware of its signals. If you want to start the journey into alternative healing and self-care, start paying attention to:

What goes into your mind: TV, comments from friends, what we read, listen to.

What goes into your body: there are so many food choices and so many different opinions as to what is good for you. Do your own research, but keep in mind some basic principles:

  • Eat fresh, raw, organic. The closest food is to its original state, the easier it will be for your body to digest it, take the nutrients and eliminate it
  • Avoid refined and chemical sugars such as “artificial” sweeteners. If needed, use natural sugars such as maple syrup, honey, stevia in small quantities.
  • Take supplements on a regular basis. As much as we would like to be able to get all the nutrients we need from our healthy eating, that is no longer possible in the world we live in. It took me a while to accept this, but even organic fruits and vegetables are not providing us with 100% of the nutrients needed due, among others, to toxins in the environment and poor soil quality. Click here for the supplements I use and recommend.

What comes out of your body:

  • Eliminate toxins every day.  Do you go to the bathroom after every time you eat (yes, like a baby). If you don’t and specially if you are not going #2 at least once a day, you are accumulating toxins in your body that will eventually turn into cellular inflammation that will turn into one of the (at least) 75 illnesses associated with cellular inflammation. (If you are not going #2 everyday, this is your first step. Click here for tips on this subject)
  • Practice therapeutic exercises that allow your body to sweat and detoxify, while restoring it, such as Yoga, Pa-kua, Tai Chi, Ki-gong.

And most importantly, learn about Glutathione and how it can help your body heal itself (click here for Wikipedia info on glutathione). This knowledge alone changed my life and the lives of many others in a short period of time!

Would you join me and many others and move from health care to “self care”? I hope so!

Glutathione and Fibromyalgia

Glutathione and Fibromyalgia:

The root of pain in Fibromyalgia has been identified as being caused, in part, by prolonged oxidative stress.  The more oxidative stress, the more inflammation, and the more inflammation the body has, the more oxidative stress it suffers. This perpetuates the cycle and the person is left with more pain.

Of the antioxidants that can prevent or retard the pain response from Fibromyalgia, GLUTATHIONE has been identified as central.

High GLUTATHIONE levels work to combat oxidative stress and lower inflammation, and by doing so contribute to stopping the cycle of pain!

The  Glutathione molecule is found in each cell. Maintaining Glutathione levels helps to:

  • support your Immune System modulation
  • slow progression of inflammation and disease
  • minimize the side effects of pain medication
  • Protect the cell against attacks

By modulating your immune system, Glutathione has a specific role in relieving fibromyalgia’s  painful inflammatory cycle.

Glutathione  protects the Mitochondria (your cell’s power plant) from chemical and environmental stressors that mount free radical attacks against the cell.

When your body’s natural Glutathione antioxidant defense systems cannot protect your cells – you experience fibromyalgia and other diseases of ‘pain and fatigue’.

When a successful attack penetrates the cell  we experience fibromyalgia, and the other ‘diseases of pain and fatigue’, including: chronic fatigue syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, MS, etc.Damage and decline occurs slowly over a long period of time.

Clearly, the lower the Glutathione levels in your cells, the more unprotected every cell is, and the more rapid the decline in your condition.

Do you know anyone suffering from Fibromyalgia?  They need to know about Glutathione!

Before you go running to the vitamin store to buy a bottle of Glutathione capsules, I have to tell you that Glutathione supplementation has been shown to be largely ineffective in raising your body’s glutathione levels significantly. There is a patented scientific breakthrough that can help your body produce 300% more glutathione in 60 days!

Higher Glutathione Levels Reduce Muscle Fatigue and Inflammation

Did you know that higher Glutathione levels reduce muscle fatigue and inflammation?

If you’re an athlete and you’re serious about performing at a high level, you need to know about Glutathione!

Glutathione plays a fundamental role as your body’s master antioxidant in improving how long you’re able to be active before tiring.  The higher your levels of GSH, the longer it’ll take before you become fatigued. Research has shown that higher glutathione levels reduce muscle fatigue and inflammation.

The field of study on the impact of GSH (glutathione) on performance has grown greatly over the past several years.  The Journal of Applied Physiology alone has over 200 articles that study the effects of improved GSH levels on performance.  Overwhelmingly, they have found that supplementing with glutathione-enhancing products has a positive effect on recovery from exercise and exertion.

One of the earlier studies in 1998 conducted by L.C. Lands, V.L. Grey, and A.A. Smountas demonstrated that higher levels of GSH reduces the levels of oxidative stress that forms in muscles – a condition that results in strenuous muscular contractions and fatigue.  Their findings showed that proper supplementation to improve GSH levels resulted in “greater power” and “increased the amount of work” subjects could perform during a given task.

A later study conducted by I. Medved et al. demonstrated that enhanced GSH availability in well-trained individuals resulted in improved gains in periods of prolonged exercise.  Another study performed just a few years ago by F. Ferreira and M.B. Reid found that pre-treating with GSH enhancing supplements “improves performance of limb and respiratory muscles during fatigue protocols and extends time to task failure during volitional exercise.”

Simply put – increased glutathione levels allows you to perform at a higher level for longer periods of time and allows you to recover faster.  Whether you’re working out regularly, adventuring on the weekends, or playing sports at an elite level  you need to supplement your diet with products that enhance glutathione.

Constipation home remedies!

Feeling sluggish, cranky, low in energy? Constipation may be the reason and there are some Constipation Home Remedies! (that you can try today)

constipation home remediesIf you are not having a bowel movement after every meal, or at least once a day, toxins are building up in your body. Are you feeling sluggish, unable to focus and cranky? Constipation may be the cause!

Did you know that there are many constipation home remedies than can help you get some relief?. You can try any or all of these:

  • Eating high-fiber foods. High-fiber foods include beans, whole grains, and fresh fruits and vegetables. Avoid foods that have little to no fiber, such as cheese, meat and processed foods. constipation home remedies
  • Moving your body. Physical activity can help stimulate intestinal activity. Even a brisk walk can do wonders for your digestive tract muscles.
  • Drinking more liquid. Drinking plenty of water and other fluids will help soften your stool (artificial drinks such as sodas or juices do not count). A glass of water as soon as you wake up can do wonders. constipation home remedies
  • Eating foods that help your bowels move. Such as apples, bananas, figs, dates and prunes. You can soak some prunes overnight and drink the water the next morning for a great natural laxative.
  • Taking the time for bowel movements. Set aside sufficient time to allow undisturbed visits to the toilet. And don’t ignore the urge to go!
  • Giving yourself a tummy massage. An easy do-it-yourself massage: You can do this laying down or standing up. Massage your stomach area with the palm of your hands, from left to right and right to left at least 80 times. This will help activate the circulation in the area and “wake up” your digestive tract muscles.
  • Concentrating on positive emotions and getting rid of the negative ones. Stress, fear and hate are your bowels enemies! Make sure that you are not emotionally “holding on” to anything. More often than not, our physical dis-harmonies are a reflex of our emotions. constipation home remedies
  • Increasing your body’s Glutathione levels. Increasing Glutathione levels will help your body to get rid of the accumulated toxins and help the intestines combat the oxidative stress caused by them. If Glutathione becomes deficient in intestinal cells, the gut becomes leaky, leading to inflammation and constipation. Clinical studies at www.Pubmed.gov show people with constipation have high levels of oxidative stress and low levels of Glutathione.

I hope this article helped you see the different steps you can take to solve the constipation problem with constipation home remedies!

NOTE: Glutathione is the body’s own master anti-oxidant. If you want to increase your body’s Glutathione levels do not run to the vitamin store and buy a bottle of Glutathione capsules, as this is like throwing your money down the drain. Supplementation with Glutathione capsules is known to be ineffective in raising your body’s levels significantly.

Glutathione facts

Glutathione facts

Better health, better performance, faster recovery from exercise, slower aging, increased energy, longer life, better quality of life, are a few of the benefits associated with high glutathione levels.

Did you know these Glutathione facts…?

1) Glutathione is the most abundant antioxidant made by the human body. It is the Master of neutralizing free radicals.

2) It is the only antioxidant that recycles itself after it has neutralized a free radical.

3) It recycles other antioxidants including vitamin C, vitamin E as well as alpha lipoic acid after they have been utilized.

4) It maintains a healthy oxidant-reductant levels of the cells (cellular redox homeostasis)

5) It reduces hemoglobin to a plus 2 state so it can accept oxygen and carry it to the cells.

6) It protects the immune system from oxidative stress, allowing newly formed immune cells to proliferate to attack germs and viruses.

7) It protects the DNA in the nucleus of the cell

8) It protects the mitochondrial DNA of the cell.

9) It reduces lipid peroxides formed by the oxidation of fats to a water soluble state, making it easier for the body to eliminate them.

10) It transports aminoacids from outside of the cell into the cell, allowing protein biosynthesis to take place.

11) It is the first line of protection against environmental and chemical toxins.

12) It is a major sequestering agent of heavy metals.
