Tai chi exercises and the nutritional recommendations included in this program provide you with tools that vastly improve blood circulation to the brain, one of the fundamental requirements to slow the effects of aging and memory loss, for repair after brain injury, with movement disorders such as Parkinson’s Disease, stroke, multiple sclerosis, brain injury, and with chronic stress, anxiety, PTSD and sleep issues. Exercises help to reduce stress and promote sleep and combined with nutrition improve blood and lymphatic circulation, and induce neuroplasticity. Exercises and nutrition reduce inflammation and free radical oxidative damage, blood brain barrier damage, and the accumulation of toxic cellular proteins and compounds (common to PD, Alzheimers and macular degeneration).

Body Balance™ is recommended as whole food nutritional supplementation for your brain
that provides essential nutrients, trace minerals, vitamins, and amino
acids. Body Balance™
is 98% inner-leaf aloe vera juice providing the most essential element
to reduce inflammation and toxicity! Chronic inflammation and toxicity
in the nervous system is now recognized as the predominant underlying
condition in Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, MS, fibromyalgia, as well as chronic
pain, migraine, allergies, Lupus, and autoimmune diseases.
Antioxidants protect along with providing immune system support. Several products address inflammation, heavy metals and other environmental toxicity. Plaque formation (a buildup of a
protein in brain cells)
is critically involved in the pathogenesis of Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimers. Researchers
find that specific antioxidants such as those found in Vitali-C Plus inhibit plaque formation. Moreover, specific antioxidant molecules
were also capable of robustly breaking up the plaques! Call Susan 970-903-5723. For more information or to order online: http://www.mylifeforce.net/susanmatthews
Head and Neck Qigong Exercise, Massage, Visualization and Movement Therapy tools that vastly improve blood circulation to the brain:
Head and neck qigong and relaxation exercises, massage and visualizations serve many purposes. Foremost is to provide an abundant blood supply to the brain to deliver nutrients and regulatory chemicals and improve lymphatic circulation to remove waste and accumulated toxins. Qigong, mindfulness training, uses powerful relaxation visualizations to improve oxygen and energy to the brain, eyes and ears. The visualizations activate the parasympathetic system to induce relaxation, increase mental focus, and increase vital energy called qi. Movement Therapy includes upper body spine, neck and shoulder loosening through relaxation. Sitting in chair exercises include abdominal exercises that increase blood circulation to the internal organs, aid digestion, improve incontinence, relaxation, digestion and sleep. Head and Neck Qigong exercises are provided onEnergy Gathering and Blood Circulation Qigong DVD with Susan Matthews, MS, ND. This Qigong video is an excellent home practice aid for any age or ability. Exercises directly stimulate the immune system, internal organs, brain, lymph and blood circulation, skin circulation, and energy flow in the meridians. Great for detoxification of the tissues.

Testimonials from participants!
Sclerosis and Brain Workshop
It is difficult to find words adequate to describe the depth of my gratitude
to you. You gave of your time, your energy, your compassion, your wisdom
100% yesterday, to such an extent that it seems to me as if that aspect
of yourself who taught me is forever with me. I am profoundly grateful
for what you have shown and given me - and how flat those words fall
next to the actual experience. Gerry, too, was transformed by hope and
thankfulness yesterday, and in fact both of us were moved to tears on
the drive home. You are a healer and teacher in the deepest sense of
Today I am in no pain whatsoever, and am still walking better - though
I have not practiced yet today. My tiredness last night was delicious
and normal - no fatigue or exhaustion, just a sense of pleasant glowing
accomplishment and readiness for rest. You were so right yesterday when
you said that we had pushed through to a new level - for me, it represented
the "forced evolution" that comes from walking a genuine spiritual
path: the sensations and new information were slow to process by the
time the afternoon tai chi class started, but by sitting and absorbing,
watching and feeling, the integration process began and will never stop
- it is a dynamo.
Thank you and bless you always, Susan.
Sclerosis and Body Balance
when I was a 16 year-old ballerina in 1976. I struggled to find the
energy to sustain myself through daily lessons, rehearsals, teaching
schedules and high school studies. Throughout college, marriage and
the birth of my children this search for energy continued.
on July 4, 1999, my vision spontaneously blurred and I was extremely
affected by a host of symptoms. They included: dizziness, heart palpitations,
acute fatigue, insomnia, numbness and tingling in my extremities, inability
to concentrate, short term memory loss and slurred speech. It hurt to
do the laundry. Finally, the doctors gave it a name: Multiple Sclerosis.
the following eight months, I immersed myself in a battle for health.
In June 2000, I began taking two ounces of Body Balance per day. Within
two days, the blurry vision cleared and a welcome energy had me back
on my feet. I enthusiastically rode this wave of health for about six
weeks before that roller coaster of intermittent fatigue and depression
began to take hold again.
Blood analysis results that showed my calcium, magnesium, chromium,
and phosphorus levels still to be low even though I had been taking
these supplements in pill form for the past 11 months. At this point,
I reviewed the ingredients in OsteoProCare and it was obvious to me
that I had to add this formula to my arsenal. Within
a few days of taking OsteoProCare, the numbness and tingling disappeared.
is hard for me to describe or find the words to describe what these
products have done for me. After 23 years, I finally found what I have
been searching for. I am experiencing significant and consistent health.
Day after productive day, I marvel at the absence of those symptoms
that plagued my life and crippled my spirit one year ago. My hair is
even growing back in!
is a dance again! Julie
friend of mine that is 44 years old has had MS for four years
and was getting worse. They gave her a new drug at Christmas time that
nearly killed her. I asked her if she would try Body Balance three months
ago. She went to her doctor last month and he could not believe how
much she had improved. Her doctor has now cut her medication. Thanks
to Body Balance, I have my friend back. Glenda
—Lower Brain Stem Stroke
all the stress, Enar had a lower brain stem stroke. He nearly
died on the way to the hospital. It left him paralyzed in the throat
and with special disorientation. We got him out of the hospital on a
doctors wanted to put him in a nursing home, because he was so weak
(114 lbs) and had to be fed through a tube in his stomach, and was deteriorating.
We took him to Norm Burba, MD, who introduced us to Body Balance. Along
with taking him off the chemicals and drugs they had him on, we fed
him blended real foods and lots of Body Balance through the day and
has made such a dramatic recovery that the speech therapist is using
the product and recommending it! He literally has blown away the statistics
on lower brain stem strokes. In 30 days, he can swallow and talk once
again, has gained 20 lbs he lost and his equilibrium is returning. I
highly recommend trying Body Balance!
Fridh North Carolina
friend, who is in her early 30’s, was suffering from severe depression.
I read about how the lack of certain minerals can cause depression.
I told my friend about Body Balance. She was so skeptical, she probably
only took the product out of friendship. However, the improvement was
so remarkable, that my friend made the comment, that she would never
be without Body Balance! Thank you, because now I have my friend back,
the way she used to be.
have suffered with migraine headaches for over 22 years. The first 20
years they were few and sometimes far apart, but within the last 2 years
the migraines became frequent (as many as 3 a week). They were actually
destroying my life, marriage, business—everything. The migraines were
so severe that I had to go to the hospital for pain and nausea medication.
I have no hospitalization insurance, so I knew that we could not afford
too many more trips to the hospital.
my last trip to the doctor I started on Body Balance and Sunset. I have
only bad one headache since. This is nothing short of a miracle. I could
never tell you what these products have done for me, what Life Force
and the Hillmans have brought to me through these products. It is incredible!
