Testimonial 1-Chronic Pain, Carpal Tunnel, Osteoporosis
My health problems started with pain in my shoulders that soon spread down over my arms to the point that I couldn’t even lift my arms over my head. I couldn’t wear a T-shirt or pullover, and sometimes to wash my hair in the shower I would have to hold one arm up with the other hand and wash one-handed. These problems were soon followed by stress fractures in my foot, which required me to wear a therapeutic boot rather than sandals or tennis shoes. After being on my feet for any length of time, a pain would develop in my knee. The serious nature of this problem kept me from being able to enjoy walking with my husband in the evening. I also experienced pain and numbness due to carpal tunnel and had to wear a brace on my right knee.
All of this pain prevented me from sleeping through the night, and I had to completely change my sleeping habits. The only way I could sleep was on my back with pillows under my knees or in a recliner. I went to several different doctors, being referred from one to another, and had many tests performed. After all of the tests and various medications, that was simply told that my rotator cuffs were worn out, and I would need replacements. I had chronic pain throughout my body with symptoms of fibromyalgia, although the disease was never medically diagnosed. I was diagnosed with osteoporosis.
When I started taking liquid phytonutrient supplements, I stopped taking my pain, anti-inflammatory and hormone medications. I also stopped taking my vitamin pills. Within a week I spent all night without waking up in pain. After two weeks I could walk a mile without pain. I recently celebrated two years of no medication and no replacement surgery. When I had my last physical, my calcium level was normal, and my bone density was above normal for someone in their 70’s. I know it is due to the liquid supplements. I was taking handfuls of calcium pills (see the dangers of calcium pills here) before Life Force’s liquid calcium supplement, but my body wouldn’t absorb them. I am now able to live a pain-free life and do all of the things that I had not been able to do for three years. I thank God every morning when I wake up that I no longer have to drag myself out of bed and take one or two hours to get started. It’s a blessing for my loved ones and such a joy for me to jump out of bed and start the day full of energy.

I am not proud of the fact that I ran out of Life Force’s liquid calcium supplement last week. I didn’t think it would affect me too much, boy was I wrong. To all of you who know me and have seen me show my dog, run around with my kids….. You think, “this girl is in good shape”. Well let me tell you another story. My “shape” is directly related to taking 3 Life Force products DAILY!! 2 1/2 years ago I was diagnosed with Last Stage Osteoarthritis in my left knee. Bone on bone, cysts and edema everywhere, but no pain. How is that?? Because I take 3 Life Force products DAILY. So here we are, one week after running out of 1 of my bone and joint products. I CANNOT WALK!! The pain is excruciating. I need a cane!
8/27/09: I received some Life Force’s liquid calcium supplement last night. I took 2TBS last night, 1 1/2 TBS two more times today AND I CANNOT BELIEVE how much better my knee is already!!!
8/31/09: It took from Wednesday evening to Friday afternoon for my knee to return to “normal.” As you can see my knee is far from normal but functional and pain free as long as I take my Life Force products regularly.
The summary of my knee diagnosis back in 2007 was:
1. Cruciate deficient knee. Findings suggesting complete rupture of the patient’s anterior ligament graft.
2. End-stage osteoarthritis with obliteration of the articular cartilage.
3. Obliterative – type tears of the medial and lateral menisci.
4. Large joint effusion.
By taking the Life Force products daily, I have been able to show and finish to AKC Championship my 165 pound Great Dane without pain or additional injury!!

Testimonial 3-Rheumatoid Arthritis
A few years ago I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. At that time I could not open my fingers in either hand and had a lot of pain in my hands, wrists, ankles and feet.
I am a hairstylist, so my career was interrupted. The doctors put me on Methotrexate injections and anti-inflammatory drugs. These did help, but I found out I would have to have my blood and urine tested every 3 months to make sure they weren’t poisoning my kidneys, liver and stomach.
After a few months I went back to get my tests. I asked the doctor how long I would have to take these drugs and he said the rest of my life. This didn’t sit well with me.
About that time my husband had a friend tell him about Life Force products. My husband came home and told me he had ordered the products that would maybe help with my arthritis. We both trusted this long time friend and were anxious to try it.
After about two months of taking Body Balance, Life Force’s Osteo product, and Flexeoplus, I started to notice I had less pain and was able to move easier. I gradually decreased my medications over the next few months. That was over five years ago. I still take ibuprofen occasionally, but no other medications.
I have added other Life Force Products over the years and my health continues to improve. I am 63 years old and still working 3 days a week. I love my work and am so happy I can continue to provide my best to my loyal and wonderful clientele. Thanks to Life Force for making this possible.

Testimonial 4-Rheumatoid Arthritis and Restless Leg Syndrome
I wanted to share Sherry L’s email to Karen J. (she’s been dealing with Rheumatoid Arthritis – RA – for several years now, and has had fantastic results with Body Balance and Life Force’s Osteo product):
As you know, I’ve been taking Body Balance since August of ’07, and added Life Force’s Osteo product about a month later.
What I was dealing with before you introduced me to these products was horrible pain in my body, severe swelling in my legs that kept me from being able to walk easily, and a bad case of Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) which made it hard to sleep at times, all of which made me just miserable.
I was taking a prescription pain medication (Diclofenac) twice a day – every day – even though I knew it was creating more problems (it’s known to be highly toxic to the liver, and to eat away the lining of the stomach), but I couldn’t tolerate the pain, and felt like I had no choice.
When I started drinking Body Balance my swelling started to go down right away, which made some of my pain lessen. I added Life Force’s Osteo product and noticed that my RLS went away. Over the months, my pain went away completely, I was able to be much more mobile, and I was sleeping well.
I decided to stop taking the Diclofenac to see if I could manage without it (it really bothered me that I was doing harm to my organs by taking it), and I am thrilled to report that I am completely pain-free, and it’s been eight months since I’ve taken even one dose!
Thanks from the bottom of my heart.
This is a long overdue testimonial, but maybe late is better than never. It certainly is as far as good health is concerned.
When I was first introduced to Body Balance and all the other Life Force products, I was in a lot of pain, due to arthritis. I had been taking DayPro, for the arthritis, for about six years. DayPro is a very potent medicine and I was taking two every day, some days I was taking three and four. When I started taking Body Balance, I noticed after about two weeks that I could do more with my hands (open jars, bottles, doors, shake hands with people, etc.) than I had been able to do in years! In less than a month I had stopped taking DayPro!
Then I started taking the OsteoProCare and the improvement in my hands, hip, knees and ankles was even more significant. I cannot thank you enough for introducing me to these wonderful products. When I tell you what a dramatic difference Body Balance and OsteoProCare has made in my life, I really mean it! I feel better and have more pep than I have had in years. Thank you! In my opinion, this could also be one of the best alternative treatments for Osteoporosis.
Testimonial 6-Spinal Damage
As a result of 3 car accidents, which were not my fault, I was in a very sorry state. The first crash (rear-ended August 94) caused severe problems emanating from my neck—disc protrusions in the neck, right arm and fingers non-functioning, locked neck and jaw, blinding headaches. Unable to get more than two hours interrupted sleep per night, often awake until the early morning.
The second smash (rear-ended January 95) caused damaged to my lower back—my sacrum became fixed and I could not bend or rotate, could not walk, only shuffle and had pain from head to toe. I needed help to get in and out of bed and to dress, and at times had extreme pain in center of my chest.
The third accident (side impact in August 98) dislocated my coccyx. I was initially put on sick leave from work for months. I attended a pain clinic and was put on pain killing drugs. I took 10 Panadine Forte a day but discontinued them to avoid liver damage. I took Panadol for headaches and also took anti-inflammatory drugs, but I was opiate intolerant—methadone caused me to vomit for hours, which aggravated my injuries. Morphine caused me to sweat profusely and prevented me from sleeping. A morphine pump was suggested but my wife, who is a nurse, discouraged me from having this because the results can be poor and there is risk of becoming addicted.
I was sent to a clinical psychologist, because I was very up tight and there were depression concerns. I went into hospital and had a number of nerve blocks, these were unsuccessful. I went into hospital again and had a pain stimulator inserted, inside my body, under my ribs, with 16 electrodes running up my epidermal space. This was intended to interrupt the pain, but was unsuccessful because there were too many pain sources, which overrode the machine. This expensive equipment is still inside me. I was sent to a Neurosurgeon who advised against fusion because of the expected 20% success rate, due to so many levels of damage. After a three hour diagnosis on a pain-measuring machine, I was told to retire.
Because my right arm and fingers were useless, I did a six month course to become left handed. I was advised not to give up looking for relief—you will find someone to help you, I was told. I tried Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, and Osteopaths in Perth, and took nutritional supplements, all to no avail.
So I decided to travel to New Zealand and try the hot mineral pools. On arrival the pain forced me to visit an Osteopath who, as it turned out, was trying new methods. So over a period of about 3 years (6 one-month visits), I alternated between the hot pools and the Osteopath. On returning home after each visit, I felt much better but slowly regressed.
I was put on Mega doses of Glucosamine and Pharma-mag Forte tablets, which helped a little. I also tried Medical Magnets, which were not much help. Then in March, 2000, after almost 6 painful years of searching, and an expense of $30,000, I found what I was looking for—I was introduced to Life Force International products. What a difference—within 3 days of taking Body Balance and OsteoProCare, the pain in my neck and shoulders disappeared—it was incredible.
I am now free from pain (just some numbness around the coccyx area). I have full neck movement and full use of my right arm and fingers. I have full movement at my waist and can touch my toes (I could not even reach my knees before). A walk around the block, which used to take me 1½ hours, I can now do in 20 minutes. My face, which was distorted with pain, is now back to normal. I no longer take any medication. I now feel that I have got my life back and give thanks to God for keeping me positive and helping me find Life Force International.

Testimonial 7-Knee Replacement and Chronic Pain
For me, evaluating nutritional supplementation has been easy. Why? Because my body is extremely sensitive to everything. Like anyone else who has severe chronic pain, when you find something that works, you know it. I have lived with severe knee pain 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 32 years.
In May of 1966, I completed my active military duty and was reassigned to reserve status with my Squadron, at Alameda Naval Air Base, in California. I was excited about the transfer because I was picked to start training for my wings as an Air Crewman. Immediately, after completing my first phase of training, I was injured in a civilian job. A four-ton hoist smashed me vertically into a steel bin, ending my military duty and an eleven year career as an athlete.
As a result of this injury, I was unable to walk without a cane or crutches for 6½ years. It took four major surgeries and significant amounts of prescription drugs for 1½ years to deal with the pain and swelling. The final solution, the medical profession had to offer for my knee instability, was total knee fusion.
At this time I was a pre-medicine student on a university transfer program to Stanford University. I wanted to be a plastic surgeon. Upon the final recommendation of knee fusion, I quit pre-medicine and no longer wanted to be an MD. I became disgusted with the idea of another surgery, more drugs and a stiff leg the rest of my life. I started to look for alternative ways to heal myself.
Fifteen years ago, orthopedic surgeons wanted to perform a total knee replacement. However, through decompression hydrotherapy rehabilitation exercise, in a swimming pool, 1 was able to maintain stability.
As I got older, with no cartilage and bone rubbing on bone, my knee has become more degenerative from friction. As time went by, it became more difficult to walk and I lost the ability to bend my knee. As this degenerative process continued, the pain level increased to the point that it was almost impossible to find a comfortable position. After a consultation in May, 1997, with Dr. Robert Klapper, Orthopedic Surgeon at Cedar Sinai, I observed 2 total knee replacements he performed and decided to have my knee replaced the day after Thanksgiving.
However, in September, an actor was injured on a Disney movie, in British Columbia, and I was brought in to help get him through the movie. What was supposed to be a three day stay, ended up to be 2½ months. The terrain was irregular, wet and cold, causing me a daily increase in pain. Many nights I could hardly walk. The only way I could sleep was to pack my knee in ice.
When I returned from Canada, I found out about OsteoProCare. I had been looking for a highly absorbable form of calcium. I was taking a chewable calcium and a Chondroitin Glucosamine supplement already, but it often created a bloating feeling and I felt I was not absorbing it.
After taking OsteoProCare for a few days, I started to feel much better. After a few weeks, I had less knee pain and better range of motion. OsteoProCare definitely made a significant difference for me. I could finally sleep without the nightly throbbing and pounding in my knee. The most interesting response was from my patients, many of whom knew of my problem because I walked with a severe limp. However, they began to notice that I was no longer walking with a limp. They wanted to know what I was doing to help myself. The answer, OsteoProCare. I take two tablespoons twice a day and find my body responds incredibly well. I have started to workout again and feel significantly better. I no longer plan to have knee surgery.
I wish I had been able to use a product like OsteoProCare with Glucosamine Hydrochloride and Chondroitin Sulfate back in the 80’s. OsteoProCare with Glucosamine Hydrochloride and Chondroitin Sulfate can significantly decrease the recovery time of someone who is suffering from a knee injury, or any condition that results in deteriorated connective tissue or degenerative arthritis.
I’ve had extremely good results recommending OsteoProCare to my patients, particularly those with degenerative joint disease. Many of my arthritic patients believe it has turned back the time clock and they feel more mobile and younger.

Testimonial 8-Frozen Shoulder, Heartburn, and Seizures
I have been suffering with a frozen right shoulder for over 2 years. I faced surgery with no Health Insurance. I had so much pain, I was unable to lift my arm above shoulder level or behind my back. I had to have help dressing. To remove my shirt was excruciating. I had gone to many doctors, including a pain management doctor who prescribed 2 cortisone shots with no help. I have been seeing a chiropractor for 6 months everyday for therapy with some help, but I would always relapse. On one of my worst weeks when I was ready to quit my business, (I own my own mobile hair salon), and give up, I was called by two ladies, Patsy Pvete and Tina Slayton from Lifeforce. I had been praying for God to help me.
On Feb.1 2009 I received my first shipment of Body Balance, Life Force’s Osteo product, and Flexeoplus. I took it every day. On Feb 14, which is my birthday, I had been on the product 2 weeks. This is when I noticed after a weekend that I was able to move my arm. After that the mobility in my shoulder has become more flexible and less painful. I am now able to go back to the gym and I am working out with more energy.
Also, after 10 years of suffering from heartburn and taking Aciphex, I no longer have heartburn and I am off the medication.
I also have had seizures in my past which no doctor can seem to explain. I have had many tests, MRI, EEG, CAT scans, they all come back normal but I still had the seizures if I didn’t take seizure meds. Well throughout of all of this I have suffered with periodic aphasia which is a loss of the ability to produce or comprehend language. I would have a spell or episode at least 2 to 4 times a week lasting 15 minutes to all day long. Since I have been on this product I have had only 2 spells. It’s now March 22, 2009 and I have only been on this wonderful product for less than 2 months now, but I am so thankful and look forward to helping as many people feel as good as I do.
Thank you, “Founders” and the people at Life Force International.
I believe that God used this product to help me, and I am a new woman. Maybe you need help or you know someone who needs help. This helped me!
God bless you
Testimonial 9-Bone Density, Leg Cramps, RLS, and Colon
For years, I had complications following a surgical procedure in which my Colon was not working properly. I had to give up being an EMT because my health deteriorated.
Being in the Medical field for 32 years, I had access to all the medications out there and I used them with the doctor’s recommendations. Besides the Zelnorm, Lactulose, Miralax, over the counter products, I was drinking ½ c of mineral oil daily. My specialist told me my colon was redundant and loopy as he would normally see in an 80 to 90 year old and I was making it worse with the medication. He suggested a resection and a colostomy bag. NO way. Swimming is my favorite activity.
My daughter convinced me to try Life Force products; I bought a few bottles just to show her it wouldn’t help. After 5 months, I was off all medication. I took more than the recommended amount of the Life Force’s Osteo product, and the upside to it was that I have increased in my bone density dramatically.
My husband, Cliff, was run over 4 years ago working in a manhole, with the car parked on top of him. Fractured scapula, ribs, shoulder, knee injuries not to mention other internal problems. His orthopedic doctor and internist were impressed at how his bones have meshed back together and the density of them. After 2 years of recovery, his is now back working plus we are building a new home literally with our own 2 hands along with our families help. No more leg cramps, RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome) is improved. Body Balance, Life Force’s Osteo product, and Flexeoplus have really helped in our journey back to health.
This dense nutrition truly does quench your bodies thirst. It is amazing what the body can do when given the right building blocks. Remember: “It’s not just what you eat and assimilate, but also what you don’t eliminate.”
My favorite saying: Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb, that’s where the fruit is!
My bone density test at age 51: T-Score 1.1, Z-Score 2.5, BMD 210.3
Lab Result on Total Cholesterol:
2004 before starting products: 283
2006 taking products: 248
2007 (four years taking products) 217
No medication at all!!!
I love to share this information as it has changed my families & friends lives for the better! Natural supplements to increase bone density.
Testimonial 11-Degenerative Spine Disease, Arthritis
This is from my friend in Stevens Point , WI .
It’s been great having reconnected with you after all these years. How interesting to see how our lives have taken twists and turns, how we have all grown over the past 25 years and what has made us become who we are.
When we met at your presentation I was excited to be able to see you just to renew our friendship with no immediate intention to pursue a new methodology of treating my excruciating pain. I almost canceled that evening because of my level of pain as well as the time of day it was, after work. What a mistake that would have been.
By the end of my day I was generally wiped out and the only think I looked forward to was getting off my feet and medicating so as to hope and pray to get a few hours of sleep, only to do it again the next day. During your presentation I almost walked out because I couldn’t stand to sit there another minute. I waited as long as I could and you had the opportunity to step out and chat a moment. Your comment was along the lines of “you look like something’s wrong”. I didn’t think I could even take the time to explain the amount of pain I was in and just wanted to get home and medicate.
Having taken the time to discuss the issues I have been dealing with over the past decade including 4 knee surgeries, multiple injections in my back for degenerative spine disease, arthritis, and increasing dependence on harmful medication with all this leading to mental and physical depression. I realized a life style change was necessary. This sounds like a lot to explain in the few minutes we talked but you listened. Now I realize you did understand because of what you have been through as well.
I was seriously skeptical a nutritional product. I believed it was my fate to live in pain and continue to treat the symptoms to the best of my ability. It was in the back of my mind, knowing surgery on my back was inevitable, but wanted no part of it because of what I have seen it do to others. As we talked I explained that I had realized being middle aged with a family history of degeneration and unhealthy life style I needed to amend my life and had begun to do that. I had started the arduous process of a modified diet and increased movement. I believed I couldn’t continue to work much longer. I was counting the days to retirement and looking at ways to get medical disability. Some days I just wanted to crawl in a hole and die.
I took your advice and began to use the Body Balance, Life Force’s calcium product, and Flexeoplus as recommended. I had less than 35 degree flexion in my right knee. I now have 90 degree flexion and the back pain is minimized to where I can complete a full day work and still go home to do what I want around the house or socialize. I am not pain free but that’s not possible due to the extent of my degeneration. My doctor visits are down by 75% and my medication has decreased by at least that.
I’m sure you remember my phone call to let you know how my life has changed. Over the past 8 months I have continued to use the products above as well as the sleeping product Dream Away. The rest is history. I will continue to use these products because and only because I have experience the healing effects they produce. It’s not a cure all, but with the other tools of diet and movement it’s more than I could ever have dreamed. I wish I could get others to understand and experience what I have.
I again thank you for your advice and for being a friend.
Love you tons.
Testimonial 12-Osteoarthritis, Hypoglycemia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
I am a horse trainer and formerly played professional polo. I was hard on my body and when I turned 40, I developed major health problems. I was diagnosed with Osteoarthritis, I had Hypoglycemia, experienced symptoms of chronic fatigue and depression from the constant pain. I tried conventional and alternative therapies. None of them worked. God answered my prayers by sending me Life Force International. I started on Body Balance and Life Force’s calcium product, followed by the Colon Cleanse. Within 3 weeks, I felt so much better. I am now pain free, I have energy all day and the depression is gone. I have my life back. I thank God every day for Life Force. I haven’t been back to the doctor, because I feel so great. I have been able to try more of Life Force’s products, which have been just as excellent. Being able to share the products with others is incredible and this allows me to have a new career which is rewarding in health and freedom. I don’t have to go back to a job that kept us on edge financially and was so hard on my body. With my health turn around and the business opportunity, I have a well-balanced life with mind, body and spirit.

Testimonial 13-Incontinence and Insomnia
When I began taking Body Balance at age 52, I was living with two debilitating health issues.
First, I had gone through menopause at a relatively early age but found myself on the other side with a rabid case of incontinence. I began seeing a urologist and, after trying physical therapy and three different prescription medications to no avail, I submitted to extensive bladder studies. At that time the doctor told me that I had one of the worst cases of incontinence he had ever seen. Because I had “urge” incontinence, my last option in getting some relief was surgery that involved implanting a pacemaker in the small of my back. The pacemaker would send out a vibration that interrupted the faulty signal that my bladder was sending my brain telling it that I had to urinate.
At this point, I was totally desperate as my bladder was quite literally running my life and my activities were severely restricted. At the time I had the surgery, I had been taking Body Balance for 2-3 months. After a year of uncomfortable living with the pacemaker and its limitations, it began to malfunction and I was told it had to be removed or replaced. As I had gotten at best what I considered a marginal result, I opted to have it removed and began lamenting the prospect of returning to being a slave to my bladder. By the time the pacemaker was surgically removed, I had been taking Body Balance for 15-16 months. I went into the hospital severely depressed thinking my bladder issues be worse than ever. To my surprise and elation, my incontinence never returned! (This despite being told that urge incontinence that does not improve, but only deteriorates and gets worse over time).
In addition to the bladder problem, I had suffered from insomnia since my late 20’s. I would often go 2-3 nights without sleeping and would go through my days like a zombie trying to work, keep a home and raise a child on no sleep. Shortly after I began taking Body Balance, I noticed my sleep patterns gradually improving. Shortly after, I added Life Force’s calcium product and insomnia vanished. To this day I sleep like a baby and the insomnia has never returned.
I credit the combination of Body Balance and Life Force’s calcium product with giving me both my days and nights back. Living in freedom from both lack of sleep and no bladder control allows me total freedom from restrictions of any kind. Life Force products have been an indescribable gift. Now at 58, I have never felt better, have energy to burn and am confident that I’ll be using the products for the rest of my life.

Testimonial 14-Parathyroid Calcium
My mother-in-law, who is 85 years old, has recently been using Body Balance.
Back in early 2007, she was diagnosed with only one more year to live. She had tumors on her parathyroid and her body was losing calcium each day through urinary calcium loss. After taking the product consistently for just three weeks, she went in for a test and to her doctor ‘ s great surprise, she had stopped losing calcium! She told us that she was really starting to feel great!!
She said her energy was way up. The muscles in her thighs started building up again and she gained 9 lbs (she was only 98 lbs before starting on the product).
The doctors don’t know what to say, but they were truly amazed (and still are). Based on her condition, they don’t know how this incredible turnaround happened. She told me, “I love this stuff and I will never get off it”. It’s been well over a year now and her results have continued.
Use this story any way you wish.
Thanks. Jim, Durango, CO
Testimonial 15-Lupus, Digestion, Bronchitis
My name is Jan L. and I live in Western Colorado.
Throughout the 1990’s, I found myself experiencing more and more health challenges. I was a teacher and mother of four and had a hard time getting through the day. Then in 1997, I was diagnosed with a serious autoimmune disease called Lupus. For me, that meant living with the never-ending flu symptoms; fever, chills, extreme fatigue and body aches. I woke up in pain every morning. About half the time it would work out and about four days out of seven I lived on ibuprofen.
My doctor prescribed a list of supplements so I went to the health food store and filled my tackle box. Twice a day I took a handful of pills! It wasn’t long before I was experiencing a lot of digestion problems on top of my Lupus symptoms. My doctor also recommended a specialist and treatment in Denver. But I wanted to start simple and knew I could always work up to more radical treatment.
In the summer of 2000, I started working with a nutritionist who started me on Body Balance and Life Force’s calcium product. Gradually I began to notice improvements. My bad days became fewer and farther apart. My good days got better and I began to have energy again. My digestion improved and I was even able to start exercising. I stayed well and avoided my usual winter cycle of sinus infection, bronchitis and pneumonia. After one year, I was pain free and had my life back again. Each year my health has risen to a new level. After seven years of faithfully taking Life Force’s liquid nutrition, I live a full, active life including hiking, biking, skiing, jogging, volunteer work and keeping up with my grandkids.
I’ve seen similar positive results among many other people suffering with autoimmune disorders such as Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia. I strongly encourage everyone to try Body Balance and Life Force’s calcium product and not wait for a health crisis like I did.
Testimonial 16-Weight, Energy, Shoulders, and Knee Joints
As a result of my wife taking Body Balance, she and I noticed some incredible relief from her suffering with Lupus, an autoimmune disease with no known cure. I noticed her feeling much better each day after she started taking Body Balance.
I decided to start taking the Body Balance myself. I noticed an increase in energy but more important I had feelings of well-being. I started wanting to increase physical activities. I wanted to do more things outdoors, hiking, biking, fishing, and skiing. Also, I started walking five mile round trips to my office every day. Because of my increase in physical activities I dropped fifteen pounds in my body weight in just a couple of months.
The most significant results I experienced with Life Force products came from the use of Life Force’s calcium product and Flexeoplus. For years I suffered from pain in both shoulders and both knee joints from the abuse they took in high school and college football. In addition, I had knee surgery and had to have a large portion of torn cartridge removed. The doctors told me that this surgery would probably allow me to get by without pain for about five years after which I would probably need another surgery. Then in approximately five years, I would probably need knee replacement. About this same time period I experienced back pain in the L-5 region of my back. A spinal birth defect was causing pressure on the nerves along my backbone, which resulted in dull pain in my right thigh. The doctors told me I would have to have back surgery to relieve the pressure and pain.
After three months of being on Life Force’s calcium product and Flexeoplus, I was pain free!!! I cancelled both surgeries in the year 2001.
To this day, I continue to faithfully take these products, which allow me to remain pain free and active.

Testimonial 17- Ehlers-Danlos syndrome
From a mom and her daughter from the land “down under”.
The story reinforces the simple message we have been communicating over and over …. that health transformation is not only possible, but it actually becomes probable as you feed the body what it craves. We believe that sea vegetables and aloe vera are two of nature’s most potent super foods for this purpose.
Rachael lives in Perth , Australia , with her mother Judy. She is now an active 11 year old, full of life & laughter.
But it hasn’t always been this way….
Rachael’s story of pain and the complete deprivation of a normal childhood began at birth. Born five weeks premature, she had constant reflux. She was cold & jaundiced as a newborn baby. She spent the first few days of her life in a warmer. All her normal milestones were delayed.
From ages 2 – 7, it was obvious to her mother that Rachael was in constant pain in her joints & muscles. She had poor coordination. She bruised and bled more easily than was normal. She suffered fractures to both arms. Despite numerous consultations with General Practitioners (MD’s), muscle and joint specialists, and physiotherapists, Rachael’s diagnosis ranged from childhood naughtiness, to growing pains. But the truth was, they couldn’t diagnose her, and they certainly didn’t have a real answers for her problems.
At the age of seven, Rachael was seen by a rheumatologist who immediately recognized her symptoms as a rare connective tissue disorder called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. Here’s a quick description of Ehlers-Danlos:
Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a group of rare genetic disorders affecting humans and domestic animals caused by a defect in collagen synthesis. Depending on the individual mutation, the severity of the disease can vary from mild to life-threatening. There is no known cure. Treatment is supportive.
The prognosis of the rheumatologist came to fruition, as Rachael continued to deteriorate over the next 4 years.
Up until a few weeks ago, Rachael required full-time care from her mother. That meant daily physical therapy, personal hygiene, dressing, feeding, and cleaning her teeth. Every night her mother comforted her several times by rocking her back off to sleep. The equipment required to care for Rachael was daunting. She needed wheelchairs, shower chair, rails in the bathroom and toilet, and a hydrotherapy pool. She also required daily physiotherapy and joint splinting, as well as regular speech and Bowen therapy.
Judy took Rachael for regular hospitalization visits – all were part of her daily life to prevent her joints from subluxing, to prevent injury & accommodate her poor coordination. As you might imagine, the financial costs to Rachael’s family were very high. Rachael was able to attend school only 2-3 days per week, in between hospitalizations.
In June 2008, everything began to change. Rachael started drinking a whole food liquid nutritional supplement, recommended by a friend. She took two products. The first contained aloe vera & sea vegetables, the second was a liquid calcium/magnesium supplement.
Within seven days her pain began to be reduced. By week 2, she was happier & able to attend school 3-4 days per week.
By week 3, her pain continued to decrease and she began reducing her use of medication. For the first time in her life she began to shower, dress & feed herself!
By week 4, she was off all medication. And as if that wasn’t enough, the next thing she did shocked everyone: because of her serious challenges with balance and coordination, Rachael had never been able to ride a bike. But 4 weeks after starting on these products, she rode her bike for the first time without falling!! We were overjoyed.
By week 5, Rachael reports no joint or muscle pain (except when she overdoes it with all her new found activities!). She is playing sports at school, riding her bike and enjoying the activities taken for granted by the typical 11 yr old. She is medication free. Her attitude changed dramatically, due to the absence of pain. Her laughter rings through the house.
By week 9, Rachael is now fully independent. She continually tests her limitations, extending them daily.
Any residual pain is relieved within 10 minutes of extra supplement. She enjoys traveling to school on the bus with her friends – something that was totally out of the question before.
The cost of maintaining Rachael’s health is now less than $100/week.
Life is great!
She thanks God daily for her pain free life and the introduction of these wonderful supplements (Body Balance and Life Force’s calcium product).
Rachael takes both supplements every single day….
Testimonial 18-Thyroid, Arthritis, ADHD
We have been with Life Force since early February of 2008. The experience has been a wonderful one in respect to our health and our business. My husband had been unable to sleep well (or sometimes at all) for almost 2 years now – mostly due to the stress he was under at work. He was on Body Balance for 2 days and he slept through the night! His good sleeping patterns have continued every night since he started on the product. In addition, his cholesterol is down 44 points and his blood pressure is perfect!
In terms of my personal results, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism 3 years ago. My thyroid count was 9 (2 is normal). My doctor insisted that I immediately go on a prescription medication. I was told by my homeopath that seaweed was a natural remedy for thyroid, so I began my search for a seaweed product. I found one that I took for about a year, and it lowered my count slightly, but then a friend told me about the aloe/sea vegetable supplement.
My mother had been drinking aloe juice for 20 years due to a liver condition that she had been dealing with, so when I heard that there was both seaweed and aloe in this product, I was in!
I just went to have my blood work done, and my thyroid count is 2.5! I also had an ultrasound of my thyroid and they used me as an anatomy lesson for the new girls in the department because I had a perfectly healthy thyroid.
All three of my children take this product and they love it (probably because it tastes good and is so easy to take). They actually ask for it in the morning! We adopted my oldest boy from Lithuania at the age of six months. He is fourteen now and is a beautiful child, but he suffers with rheumatoid arthritis, ADHD, and many learning disabilities. He had amazing results with the Life Force’s calcium product and Flexeoplus, iproflavone and MSM . Since he started taking these products, he has regained motion is his elbows that were locked at a 45 degree angle. In the words of his therapist, his elbows were “a complete loss”. She was floored at the results. He also is much calmer and more relaxed with these products.
So as you can see, my family has been effected in an enormous way, and we are all better for having been introduced to the product line. Oh, by the way, the extra pay checks that now cover my mortgage and oil bills every week are pretty sweet too!
Brian and I are positive that we have found our future with this company, and plan to take this to the top.
A quality of life that I was afraid I could never achieve is right around the corner and I now know it is possible.

Testimonial 19-Chron’s Disease, Hot Flashes
My son was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease almost 4 years ago, he was 13. Within 1 year they had him on about 8 pills, 2 of them steroids, and he still didn’t feel well. I started searching vitamins to see if I could help him another way.
After trying a few I found out about Body Balance. It’s made from 22 sea vegetables and aloe vera juice. It is a whole natural food with vitamins, minerals and trace elements. He is now only on 1 pill (Nexium) and I may start weaning him off of that also.
He’s doing great and his new doctor said that from his colonoscopy/endoscopy he would not even have know he had Crohn’s.
I also had been told it would help me with my hot flashes. I take a combination of Body Balance and Life Force’s calcium product which is calcium, magnesium, Vitamin D, and Omegas 3, 6 and 9. All the things my body needs anyway. I had 10-20 hot flashes per day plus waking in the night from sweating. Now, with these two products, I have no more hot flashes, it’s wonderful.

Testimonial 20-Fibromyalgia, Colitis, Degenerative Disc, Bone Spurs
After taking another balanced synthetic vitamin product for 4 and ½ years that had helped me with my fibromyalgia symptoms, I regressed into my fibromyalgia symptoms and developed ulcerative colitis. My gastroenterologist indicated it was very unusual for someone to develop colitis at my age. I was put on a special diet and offered medication. I did not want to take the medication due to the side effects. The no raw foods diet with limited amount of cooked fruits and vegetables, plenty of white flour and white rice diet along with bottles of organic aloe vera juice I purchased at the health food store was not working.
ULCERATIVE COLITIS-Three days after starting Body Balance there was a noticeable difference in the pain and bleeding with my ulcerative colitis. By the end of the third month I was symptom free with my ulcerative colitis and have stayed that way.
MIGRAINE HEADACHE PAIN & MUSCLE PAIN-I did not have another migraine headache after starting Body Balance. Before starting Body Balance, I was having about 1/month. My muscle cramps, pain and energy gradually improved especially after the 3rd month. Before I discovered the value of a high quality nutrition supplement I took ibuprofen on a daily basis. I rarely need pain relief for my fibromyalgia now.
HEALING QUICKLY-In October of 2007 I had a long afternoon of picking up all of the leaves in my yard. After finishing my yard work I took off my gloves and discovered I had rubbed a blister. It had not only broken but the skin was off the blister and I had a nasty sore. I treated it by washing it thoroughly, applying antibiotic cream and a band-aid. The next two mornings after taking my shower I repeated that treatment. The third morning when I removed the band-aid the sore was healed. The skin was a little red but perfectly smooth and clean.
SLEEP-4th month I am sleeping through the night consistently. Before I started Body Balance I had to take a sleep medication. I was not waking feeling rested. With medication I was able to sleep 6 of 7 nights. The 7th of these I had a fibromyalgia night where I was up for 2-3 hours in the middle of the night. Now I am sleeping soundly through the night consistently and waking up feeling rested.
OFF MEDICATION-By the 5th month I was able to get off my medication for sleep which I had never been able to get off of even with the other balanced vitamin/mineral product that had given me improvement in my sleep pattern. I only need to take Tylenol for muscle pain if I over do it with too much yard work or gardening. Without the Body Balance the Tylenol was a regular part of my life.
ENERGY-6th month I have added two hours two my day, most days getting up between 5:00 and 6:00 A.M. without an alarm. My energy holds throughout the day until I got to bed between 10:00 and 10:30 P.M.
DEGENERATIVE DISC, ARTHRITIS, AND BONE SPURS-When I was 8 years old a tree fell on my head and crushed vertebrae and cracked ribs from the compression on my head and spine. When I was 35 I developed severe back pain and after 5 years of that I didn’t want to live. Finally doctors discovered a herniated disc and after more testing they found a tumor as big as a baby’s head pushed up against the right sacrum. Removing the tumor brought down the pain level but did not take it away. My spine had been pathologically curved both front to back and side-to-side. Then from 1996 to 2005 I had 5 different accidents where others drivers ran into the back of me. I had x-rays and needed treatment after each accident. I tell you this so you understand I have comparison x-rays and why I might have degenerative disc and arthritis in the spine along with pain. The 10th month after starting Body Balance I changed to a new chiropractor. She took X-rays and took my history. She showed me my X-rays and said she was very impressed with my disc space and I good disc between all my vertebrae. In addition there were no bone spurs. Now I have the objective validation for why I only have back pain when I overdo it with yard work or other physical kinds of work. By the beginning of the 3rd month after I started Body Balance I began taking our Life Force’s calcium product and Flexeoplus.
STAMINA and STRENGTH-By the 11th month I am swimming 100% more laps in the same amount of swimming time. When I do the cardio program on the tread mill, even at the steepest incline on the tread mill I almost need to jog to get my heart rate up to the cardio rate.
CHOLESTEROL-In the 11th month I had my annual blood work done for my physical.. My cholesterol had dropped from 205 to 151. My LDL has dropped from 107 to 67.
IMMUNITY STRENGTHENED-For every winter since my early 20ies I got numerous upper respiratory infections that often resulted in a secondary bacterial infection and bronchitis. I would have to have anywhere from 2 to 8 rounds of antibiotics to just get through the winter. That happened even after I had been taking another good balanced soy based nutrition product. In fact the last winter before I started taking Body Balance I missed an entire month of work with one bout of flu that required two rounds of antibiotics due to the secondary bacterial infection. I started Body Balance in late August of 2006. For the first winter I can remember since my early 20ies I got through the winter without having to take any antibiotics.
HOPE AND QUALITY OF LIFE-My health was in a downward spiral before I started Body Balance. I was grasping at straws for answers and had little hope. I was consuming bottles of Aloe Vera Juice from the health food store to try to heal my ulcerative colitis. I was able to eat limited amount of cooked fruit or vegetables due to the severe diarrhea. I was taking a balanced soy based powdered vitamin and mineral supplement. These things weren’t working. Those special diets and making shakes are behind me now. I eat a mostly raw foods diet with lots of seeds and nuts now. I not only feel good, I feel the best I have felt in my entire lifetime. Now I have hope and look forward to each day because I feel I have a future.

Testimonial 21-(DOG) Artificial Knees and Arthritis
Hi, my name is Major. I am a 12 year old German Shepherd. When I was 5 years old, I started having problems with my two back knees.
My owners, Steve and Mary Ann Trgovec of Sheboygan Falls took me to Madison, Wisconsin to the Veterinary Hospital to try to get me help. I could barely sit on my hind legs. I could not run or climb steps. I was also starting to lose my hair. The doctor’s gave me 2 artificial knees and said I have bad arthritis and hip problems. They also said I would need more operations.
Well, that never happened. My owner’s put me on the same liquid nutritional product’s they take and it helped them and me a lot. I take Body Balance, Life Force’s calcium product, and Flexeoplus every day. People can’t believe how good I get around now. The 2 local vet’s I go to said these products have really helped me with my health challenges. It didn’t happened overnight but, as time went on things got better and better.
Well I have to go now. I may not be as fast as I used to me, but I’m still having fun chasing rabbits and deer on my land.

Testimonial 22-Atheletic Performance
I’ve been taking Life Force products for about 4 years now – and I’ve been a triathlete for that amount of time. During the 4 years that I’ve been training and racing, I’ve also raised two young children, created a 2nd business while maintaining the first one, performed many hours of volunteer work, managed a household in spite of a husband who travels 50% of the time, and acquired a very active puppy. In other words, I have a hectic, potentially very stressful life. However, in spite of the pace, and the countless viruses I am exposed to via my children’s classmates, I have (knock on wood) remained extremely healthy and energetic.
For my 40th birthday this past October, I decided to celebrate by competing in my first full Ironman triathlon: 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, 26.2 mile run. I made this decision a scant 10.5 weeks before the race, which meant I needed to get into Ironman shape in 8 weeks so I could taper the last 2 weeks. I trained 7 days a week, averaging 3 hours of training each week day, 5-6 hours each weekend day. Much of my training occurred before school or work, when everyone was asleep, and it occurred in spite of H1N1 (which my children caught, but had a mercifully mild version), my running for local political office, and carrying on with all of my other regular duties in and out of the house. My only goal for the Nov. 29 Ironman was to finish, and not finish last. I managed to complete it in 15 hours, in 1,103rd place (out of 1,900), felt great during it, and had completely recovered from the effort by the next day.
During training, I started each day with Body Balance, my breakfast was a shake that included Amino Charge, TrueGreens & Life Force’s calcium product, and the 2 weeks leading up to the race I had 2 bottles of TruBoost each day. The morning of the race I had the shake (minus the TrueGreens) and had 2 bottles of TruBoost.
Ironman is known to involve 3 sports: swim, bike, run. However, every long distance athlete knows that the “secret” weapon – or what will break you – is the fourth discipline: nutrition. This is where my Life Force products came in and gave me that extra edge, during training, racing, and recovery. I have signed up for Ironman Cozumel 2010 and Life Force products will once again be in my bag of tricks!
Life Force International has been producing nutritional products for over 25 years now and have had hundreds of thousands of stories of peoples’ experiences with them. Again, we are never able to say that these products cure anything, but think about it from a common sense standpoint; “If you give your body what it was originally designed to have, it could have the ability to regenerate itself”. In these examples, we see the benefits of liquid calcium on Arthritis and other ailments.
It’s your life, your choice.
