PATCH OF THE DAY

PATCH OF THE DAY
Becks'fresh bid to boost energy

By Jilly Beattie and Andy Lines

DAVID Beckham has been wearing small stickers on his chest to boost his fitness levels as the World Cup approaches.

During games the 30-year-old Real Madrid star has the patches positioned on key pressure points, they work by releasing amino acids which stimulate the body to slowly pump out extra energy, according to the makers.

Becks and his Real team-mates are the first in Europe to experiment with the patches called Lifewave energy boosters.

The stickers are widely used by sports stars in America and were introduced to the Spanish club by president Emilio Butragueno.

A Real source said: "These men are athletes, but even athletes get tired especially when they're playing at world-class level.

"Using the patches has helped boost their own natural capabilities and the joy is that there are no chemicals in them."

Lifewave's European director Nigel Allan added: "I'm not surprised Becks uses the patches, because they work.

"They're a natural product that increases energy by up to 40 per cent. They enable the body to release it steadily and for longer. They contain no chemicals, no toxins, in fact nothing from the patch even enters the body."

But experts are sceptical about the patches. American Academy of Medical Acupuncture chief Dr Bryan Frank called on the makers to explain exactly how they work and doubted the claim nothing enters the body. He said: "When you say amino acids, that could be anything. It sounds like a vague description because they don't want to say what it is.

"It would not surprise me to see sporting federations ban that type of thing unless the company comes forth with specific data showing exactly what it is."

Acupuncturist Dr Joseph Acquah added: "The question is whether it's stimulating the body's electrical field. I've never seen a scientific study that shows you can use amino acids to change electrical currents."

The patches may boost energy but they clearly do not make stars play any better - as Becks and his team found out on Saturday night when they were thrashed 3-0 by Barcelona.

Perhaps Beckham's energy has been drained recently while he has been teaching wife Victoria to drive her £55,000 BMW in busy Madrid.

She was nervous about being on the wrong side of the road, but last week 31-year-old Posh was spotted driving the motor without her tutor for the first time. A source said: "Victoria has David to thank for getting her back on the road."

Nigel Allan: Newest Member to Lifewave Team!

LifeWave is proud to announce that Nigel Allan has joined the LifeWave executive team!

Another great addition to the LifeWave team!


The third major appointment to the Lifewave corporate team in one week can now be announced. LifeWave further strengthens its corporate team and international capabilities with the addition of Nigel Allan as Director of European Business Affairs to oversee and coordinate LifeWave's European expansion.

A seasoned veteran with twenty years' experience in the network marketing industry, not only has he built large distributor organisations in several countries, Nigel has also worked corporately and advised successful network marketing companies on both sides of the Atlantic, from compensation plan and new product development to distributor training.

Nigel joined LifeWave initially as an independent distributor several months ago and has been successfully building his own international network whilst assisting the company's entry into the European market.

In relinquishing his distributorship to corporately head up LifeWave's European operations Nigel says, "This appointment enables me to positively affect the lives of many more people by bringing my skills and experience to the table for the benefit of the company as a whole, rather than just a single group. Jim Rohn had a lot to say on the subject of service and in fact all I am giving up is the ability to render service to the few so that I can render service to the many. I look forward to helping Lifewave become the pre-eminent company in Europe."

Nigel's combination of field and corporate experience brings an invaluable insight into not only what works for a company but also what works for the distributor too.

Bio: Nigel Allan

Nigel began his marketing career working in London advertising agencies as a copywriter, composing ads for well known brand names. In 1985 he was invited to a presentation for a young health and nutrition company called Herbalife. He became fascinated with all aspects of network marketing and developed a love affaire with the industry that has endured till today. He credits his time as a distributor with Herbalife as giving him the foundation and some of the best network marketing training of his career.

After Herbalife, he went on to build an international organisation in several countries with UK-based personal care company building a team of around 15,000 in six different countries. This led to his launching a major Canadian-based company in the UK in 1992 breaking all current sales records for a new company launch in that market.

After moving to the USA, he was introduced to Enrich International, Utah, where he was invited to create and launch his own anti-aging, skin treatment brand called 'aeon', incorporating the world's first complete line of alpha hydroxy acids in combination with beta glucans and growth factors. This became so successful - because it was effective - that he was also appointed VP of Training for Enrich, travelling the breadth of the USA and Canada conducting workshops in addition to developing the sales and marketing materials and hosting a monthly satellite broadcast. During the next 18 months Enrich saw their sales increase from around $2 million dollars monthly to around $10 million monthly.

Returning to the UK, Nigel advised Cabouchon, the UK's most successful indigenous network marketing company to date, and was retained to re-brand and re-launch Elemis, a large natural, aromatherapy-based skin care company, whose products are now marketed in Harrods and top spas around the world.

After creating and launching his second skin care brand in 1998 called 'Isomer', uniquely based upon the emerging field of chiral or optically active compounds - another world first - Nigel was invited to the Faculty of Biotechnology in Turin, Italy to speak at a conference on the use of biotechnology in cosmetics.

Nigel's involvement in cutting edge skin care development has continued to this day although his main love continues to be the training and development of independent distributors via the network marketing model.

Nigel will be an invaluable asset in the next step in LifeWave's growth and development as a unique lifestyle and wellbeing company.

Nigel is married with three young children and lives just outside of London.

Introducing the LifeWave Hot Ice Thermal Patches

LifeWave Hot Ice Thermal Patches

Ideal for extreme sports including university, college, and high school athletes.

Provides relief for athletes with sore muscles, sprains, strains and other sports injuries due to intense exercise.

The new Hot Ice Thermal Patch™ from LifeWave is a unique nanotechnology product.
The unique nature of the patches provides the body with an immediate thermal effect.
As shown in the actual before and after pictures below, the reduction of "hot spots" is clearly evident.
Local thermal effects include the restoration of temperature in an injured area to normal; reduced pain, reduced inflammation, and restoration of range of motion to the specific injured site.
“Global" body responses include a reduction in muscle soreness throughout the body.
LifeWave patches have been found in studies to have excellent results with acute muscle spasms and injury, and chronic muscle spasms.
Infrared thermal imaging studies clearly show that LifeWave Hot Ice Patches ™ have both immediate local thermal effects on the skin as well as broader thermal effects that are mediated by autonomic nervous system control of blood vessel contraction and dilation.


When LifeWave Hot Ice Thermal Patches™ are placed on an athletes’ body over a specific region of injury both localized and more generalized thermal responses occur offering an overall thermal response much like hot and cold packs. This is all done with no chemicals, creams or medication as nothing enters the body and LifeWave Hot Ice Thermal Patches™ are non transdermal.

Background:

In 2005, LifeWave Hot Ice Thermal Patches™ were registered with the FDA as a medical device under the classification of a disposable hot or cold pack. As a result of ongoing research LifeWave Products, LLC has determined that LifeWave Hot Ice Thermal Patches™ are most properly defined as thermal patches that have both immediate local thermal effects on the skin as well as broader thermal effects that are mediated by autonomic nervous system control of blood vessel contraction and dilation.

The thermal effects of the patches defines LifeWave patches as having medical applications in athletic situations where hot or cold packs are indicated such as cramps, sprains, strains, tendonitis, muscle soreness, pain and bruises etc.

Infrared thermal imaging studies have clearly shown that LifeWave Hot Ice Thermal Patches™ are thermal patches that have specific medical applications.


Infrared thermal imaging has proven that LifeWave patches produce a thermal response over regions that are injured, strained, or in spasm. The response was such that LifeWave patches have a thermo regulating response on the body similar to cold or hot packs.

LifeWave to Help With Disaster Relief

LifeWave to help with Disaster Relief

Company Sponsors Program

When disaster of the magnitude of Hurricane Katrina strikes, people are eager to help. The victims need food, clothing and other goods to meet their basic needs. The phone calls have flooded into LifeWave wanting to know how we can help the affected families begin to replace what they have lost.

On Saturday, September 10th during lunch at the national convention in Las Vegas our leaders will be collecting funds for the American Red Cross.

David Schmidt has made the commitment that LifeWave will match the donations gathered that day.

The American Red Cross volunteers have been deployed to the hardest hit areas of Katrina's destruction, supplying hundreds of thousands victims left homeless with critical necessities. By making this financial gift to Hurricane 2005 Relief, the Red Cross can provide shelter, food, counseling and other assistance to those in need.

LifeWave funds will be presented to the American Red Cross on Sunday, September 11th.

Members join in: LifeWave Grass Roots Support Grows!

Thomas Burke, a LifeWave Member, is asking everyone to send 3 sets of patches (not sleeves, but just individual sets of patches) out of their own supply to:

Thomas Burke - Relief 561-776-9478 ThomasB@topnanobizop.com
401 Sea Oats Dr., Villa A
Juno Beach, Fl. 33408

Some distributors are sending more, but Thomas hopes for a minimum of three sets per Member.

Thomas is working with the Red Cross, WPTV-Channel 5, Doctors, and Pilots. The patches will be distributed directly to Emergency Response Personnel, flown in directly instead of it sitting in a warehouse to avoid delay. A log will be kept of all those donating and receiving the patches. Lifewave will also donate patches to this Thomas Burke program.


LifeWave Members are donating clothes and other needed items for the hurricane victims. Check your closets. We all have clothes that are good but no longer worn. What a better use for them than help others. Please give directly to your local relief efforts.

Ron Morefield has offered to contribute half of the profits from his new book ("Natural Energy Balancing) sold at the National Convention. Ron will also be happy to contribute $5 per book on behalf of Members who wish to contribute their convention discount to the relief efforts.

Many thanks to all! We have had many calls from our LifeWave family; concerned and wanting to get involved. Now we can all pull together.
