SILVER FOR CLEANING? (available at Elevate)

How Silver Ions Inactivate Bacteria

Norwex antibacterial silver microfiber uses active silver ions (AG+). According to ISO testing, silver inactivate the bacteria cells. This is done in three ways:

1. Breakdown of a cell’s life supporting functions by inhibiting the transmembrane transport thereby starving the bacterium

2. Inactivation of intracellular enzymes that “digest the food”

3. Damage the bacterium cell’s DNA so that it cannot reproduce

EWG’s (Environmental Working Group) 5th annual guide to safe and effective sunscreens features ratings for more than 1,700 sunscreens and SPF lip balms, moisturizers and makeups.


Highlights? Only one in five sunscreens earns high marks for safety and efficacy. Products with exaggerated SPF claims above 50 still crowd out better brands, and nearly one-third of this year’s crop of sunscreens contains vitamin A, an additive that can accelerate the growth of skin tumors and lesions.


Read EWG’s report below to catch up on the science and politics behind the sunscreen industry and to learn how well this year’s products protect Americans’ skin from the sun’s damaging UV rays.







The Natural Herbal Way


A parasite cleanse is required if your body is overburdened with other toxins. For the most part, if your body is healthy, then your immune system can deal with the parasites. If your circulation is poor, or your organs and tissues are oxygen deprived, or your pH is out of balance, tissues begin to deteriorate. This sets up an environment suitable for parasites to invade your body. They will naturally migrate to those areas of the body where your body is not functioning optimally. So they can be present in your blood, your joints, your organs, you name it! While parasites may not necessarily be the cause of a disease, they are extremely opportunistic and can make a disease worse. 


There are many reasons to consider a parasite cleanse. It is estimated that parasites infect up to 80% of the world population, and that these infestations are not limited to developing nations with poor sanitation. Common lab tests screen for only forty of the hundreds of parasites that can live within the human body. In addition, most tests are performed on stool samples, but in reality only a few parasites inhabit the intestinal tract. Thus many people can test negative when in fact they do have parasites. Live Blood Microscopy and Electrodermal Screening are excellent tools to discover parasite pathogens . ...continued

Why Calcium can be so toxic to our body! 


You are mostly water and then you are mostly calcium ! Calcium is a mineral and all minerals are metals. So besides water you are mostly metal ! No two ways about it, taking the wrong calcium, like Coral Calcium, causes major health problems!


The simple act of taking Vitamins with Minerals can promote bad health. Metals, when added to the body, must be bound to a metalloenzyme. Enzymes are like the horse pulling a cart (the metal) to where it belongs and can be used by the body. When the body is unable to respond with the proper metalloenzyme, bad health can occur.

Calcium not only makes up your bones, it's also found in your nerves, muscles and most of the cells in your body. Calcium, along with other vitamins and metals, are in water and almost everything you eat.


Here is another surprise. There are two common forms of calcium and dozens of chemical compounds of calcium. One good, the other very bad. This is a well kept secret in the medical and water industry. Tens of billions of dollars are being made in hospitals because of heart bad health and selling water softeners that use salt to remove the good calcium from water.


There are more than 60 chemical forms of calcium: Calcium acetate, Calcium benzoate, Calcium Bromate, Carbonate, Chlorate, Chloride, Chromate, Fluoride, Hydroxide, Oxide, Nitrite, and on and on. Your body needs calcium, but the calcium it needs has to be water soluble, digestible, and recognized by the body. From there, the body then has to chemically process it. 


Cili’s Calcium is Calcium Chloride and as close to nature as possible. It is not chelated and it needs nothing else for absorption. All calcium is not water soluble, nor is it digestible or recognizable by the body, therefore, the body is unable to process it effectively. Calcium Carbonate (Bad) - causes scale and plaque. Coral Calcium is a carbonate based calcium.


Limestone, clam shells and marble are like the scale in your plumbing, which is known as calcium carbonate. This form of calcium is not soluble in water and is not bio-available. When calcium is taken in the bad form like calcium carbonate, the body tends to put it anywhere it wants to. 


IF Bad Calcium builds up in the arteries can restrict blood flow to the heart and brain which may cause major health issues.


Bad Calcium may cause gallstones, kidney stones, buildup in the joints as arthritis and bone degeneration. It may even be responsible for diabetes and hypoglycaemia.








Who would have ever thought that too much of a good thing could become so detrimental to the body? Yeast exists quite naturally in the system without drawing any undue attention, but, should you become imbalanced, the repercussions are significant and can spin your life into turmoil.

Just as in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia, the existence of the condition lives and proliferates long before it is identified. Usually by the time you know you have Candidiasis, significant infection is in progress which requires diligent work to eradicate. 






What if someone were to tell you that a chemical (MSG) added to food could cause brain damage in your children, and that this chemical could effect how your children's nervous systems formed during development so that in later years they may have learning or emotional difficulties? 


What if there was scientific evidence that these chemicals could permanently damage a critical part of the brain known to control hormones so that later in life your child might have endocrine problems? How would you feel? ...continued

You see, your skin is not only your largest organ – it’s also the thinnest. Only 1/10th of an inch separates you from all sorts of toxins. Your skin is highly permeable, allowing what you apply to your skin access to your bloodstream (and thereby to the rest of your body)… continued









The colon is the last five feet of the digestive tract or large intestine. It is a hollow tube like organ made up of muscle structure that moves waste along by a wavelike motion known as peristalsis. The primary function of the colon is to absorb water, electrolytes and some vitamins, as well as preparing and storing fecal waste prior to elimination. The colon, along with the skin, kidneys lungs and lymphatic system is a major organ of elimination of toxins and waste. If bowel movements are not regular, the waste products and toxins accumulate and can compromise our health. Good health is as much a function of our elimination status as the quality of the food we eat. ... continued

Toxins can be found everywhere in our environment and are a threat to our health.  We are surrounded by thousands of man-made chemicals in our food, water and the air.  Our bodies work continuously removing these toxins from our system.  Over time, they become overwhelmed and are unable to keep up.  ...continued
