Rebounding and Removing Toxic Waste!

Modern life is like living in a toxic cesspool. From the chemicals in everyday personal and household products, to the preservative and additives in our foods…toxins can put a tremendous burden on our lymph system and degrade our health.

Our bodies are constantly removing toxins and waste from our cells. The lymph system is the debris first stop on its way out of the body. It’s role is critical in preventing illness and it is important to the over all healing process. Some of the organs that are part of the lymphatic system are lymph nodes and lymph veins, the tonsils, adenoids, appendix and spleen. The lymph system is twice the size of our circulatory system.

Since, it is our lymph nodes that are checked when cancer is suspected, it makes sense to assist them in doing their job. Normally, lymph ducts remove waste through gravity, internal massage to the valves of the lymph ducts, and muscular contraction from movement and exercise.

In Europe stimulation of the lymph flow is the fourth most commonly prescribed medical treatment. However, healthcare practitioners in America seldom consider the lymphatic system’s critical role in preventing illness or its importance to the over all healing process.

We have many pieces of exercise equipment: the gazelle, hand weights, bun and thigh rocker, and cross bow…and we have had others in the past…but for me the best piece of equipment for detoxification of the lymph system is the rebounder.

But what is a rebounder you ask?

A re-bounder is a mini-trampoline which is about 4 feet in diameter. You stand on it and gently bounce up and down. However, you can add to the intensity of the workout when and if you feel the need…..for example…. to gain a general cardiovascular benefit or to increase endurance.

The rebounder can be used for as little as 10 to 15 minutes at a time or several times a day. Just put on your favorite CD and bounce to 3 or 4 songs and your done…and you’ve given the lymphatic system a tremendous boost. Our rebounded stays available, since we use it everyday. However, it can be folded and put away at any time.

Get that lymph system moving and remove the toxins from your body. Assist the body and the lymph system any way you can…through diet, exercise, stress reduction and deep breathing.

Co Q 10 For A Healthy Heart!

Coenzyme Q10 (also known as Co-Q10, Vitamin Q or ubiquinone) is a compound that is made naturally in the body. It is also found in all living organisms and most foods contain traces of it as well. The highest amounts are found in the heart, liver, kidneys, and pancreas, with the lowest amounts found in the lungs. It is needed for the proper functioning of enzymes (thus the reason for the name "coenzyme") that are necessary for chemical reactions throughout the body.

Coenzymes are a sort of energy sparking catalyst for the cells of the body.Our bodies could not survive without energy producing Co-Q 10. It’s a necessary nutrient needed for the proper functioning of every cell. Without it we would not have enough cellular energy to fuel the physiological reactions we need to survive. As a powerful antioxidant, it also protects the body from free radical damage that can damage important parts of the cell. Several small studies have even shown a benefit for some cancers, possible because of its immune enhancing effects.

The heart requires the most Co-Q 10, calling for a constant supply of energy to pump blood throughout the body. Numerous studies have shown that Co-Q10 can support the cardiovascular system when dealing with such issues as mitral valve prolapse, hypertension, cardiomyopathy, irregular heartbeat, angina and high blood pressure.

Since Coenzyme Q 10 assists the body on a cellular level, sufficient stores of this nutrient are needed to fight off illnesses such as chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and Parkinson’s disease. Having enough Co Q 10 ensures that you can retain proper muscle function and overall stamina.

This important nutrient is easily depleted by stress, age, illness, exercise, and some drugs. Along with blocking the liver mechanism that manufactures cholesterol, cholesterol-lowering drugs, like Lipitor, Zocor and Pravachol (also known as statins) block the production of coenzyme Q 10. Other drugs such as antidepressants and beta blockers also deplete this important nutrient.

Co Q 10 is essential for the functioning of every cell in our bodies. Again, without it we could not survive. When it drops, so does our cardiovascular health, our immunity and general health. When Co- Q10 levels are boosted, so is our immune systems response. Therefore, taking a look at Co Q 10 may assist you in reversing cardiovascular disease, symptoms of fatigue or generally in enhancing the immune system and fending off disease.

6 Tips For Stress Reduction That Could Ultimately Save Your Life!

Feeling Stressed? Overworked? It seems that we all are these days. With many of us working two jobs, raising kids and taking care of elderly family members it often feels overwhelming. This constant stressed state can affect our sleep, contribute to anxiety, or depression, and put us at risk for a heart attack, or stroke. So maybe it’s time we found out what simple things we can do about it. We owe it to ourselves and our loved one to consider these simple stress reducing techniques.

Daily Exercise: Did you know that exercising not only reduces stress but actually improves your mental and emotional well being. It doesn’t take a great deal of time either. Even 10 minutes of moderate exercise a day can improve your mood and decrease fatigue. For additional benefits, work towards the recommended 30 to 60 minutes a day and you will improve your sleep, and cut the risk of cancer, heart disease and diabetes.

Proper Sleep: Getting as much as 8 hours of sleep a night allows your body to deal with stress and rejuvenate. Sleep deprivation has a profound impact on the bodies response to stress. Additionally, the sleep you get from 10 PM to 12 PM is twice as beneficial as those hours after midnight. The body also has important work to do during the hours of 10 PM until 2 AM like dumping toxins and recharging the adrenals.

Eat healthy: The body needs proper nutrition to function at peak performance. This means eating wholesome balanced and nutritious meals, not fast food. Eat often throughout the day to manage blood sugar and ward off the dizziness and anxiety which can precipitate a drop in blood sugar. Skipping meals only compounds the stress response.

Proper Supplementation: Even those who eat a healthy diet find it difficult to get enough vital nutrition to promote or sustain health. Getting additional nourishment by taking a food source vitamin/mineral supplement is key to having a strong, vibrant, healthy life.

Stimulates: Avoid stimulates like caffeine, sugar and even sugar substitutes (like Aspartame) and MSG. These substances offer no nutritional value but can further deplete and stress the body. The body runs on real nutrition. You will find no help using these substances.

Relaxation: We live in a time of tremendous rate of acceleration. We often feel that we must be doing something constantly to be of value. This is a flawed concept and one that will eventually cause you to crash. So slow down, find time for private reflection, meditation and prayer. Unplug and unwind. What is stressing you today will make no difference to anyone a hundred years from now. So be gentle with yourself.

The Current State of Our Health Care!

We have the most expensive health care system in the world. Yet, where are all the healthy people? The rising cost for health care is in the area of 1.5 trillion dollars a year. Millions of dollars are spent on health research each year, so where are the cures for Diabetes, Cancer, Alzheimer’s, AID’s and other chronic and debilitating diseases?

In our opinion, our health care system (along with the food industry) has let us all down. Just look around you. At least 60% of us are fighting obesity, yet, diet systems and techniques are endless. We hear about low fat diets, and low carb diets and so on. There is every kind of exercise gadget imaginable and infomercials galore on the subject of weight loss. But, still the majority of us are overweight. And just listen to your friends. I’m sure you’ll hear many of them talk about the numerous drugs they’re taking, how sick they are and how they don’t have enough energy to get through the day.



I read recently, that the U.S. Surgeon General, Richard Carmona is in the process of trying to educate the public and policymakers on the importance of disease prevention. Waiting to treat a disease after it is full blown is the wrong path for our nation.The solution is to invest in prevention!

Many years ago the great inventor Thomas Edison stated:
"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease."

I guess you could say he saw the light, You betcha he did!

Doctors get very little education on nutrition. Yet, we know the importance of eating the right food to sustain life. Research shows that continuous vitamin and mineral deficiencies definitely lead to disease. Doesn’t this seem a bit confusing. If doctors are experts in disease, and vitamin and mineral deficiencies lead to disease, then why aren’t doctors top notch experts on nutrition?

We were created with a wonderful immune system to protect us from disease. Our bodies are very resilient and can take years of abuse, but sooner or later our compromised immune system will break down and the end result is poor health or chronic illness.

Our bodies are temples and should be treated as such. With proper diet, nutrition, and educated supplementation, along with exercise and prayer, we can all lead healthy lives. So, as you travel through our website and read the information that we have compiled for use by our family and friends. We hope it benefits you and your family as well.

Vibe is an All In One Supplement!

As you age, the body replaces cells in your organs and tissues. Why, then, are they often not as good as when you were younger? One of the primary answers is STRESS.

Bodily stress is caused by many things—mental strain, physical exertion, environmental toxins like cigarette smoke and pesticides, even poor diets! Stress can be dangerous because damaging molecules called FREE RADICALS are generated. Free radicals are harmful scavengers created INSIDE your body that cause tremendous harm and accelerate the signs of aging—disrupting body systems, destroying cell membranes, mutating cells, even reprogramming your body’s DNA! However, ANTIOXIDANTS are nature’s way of fighting harmful free radical scavengers.

Antioxidants convert free radicals into HARMLESS elements and neutralize their damaging effects. VIBE’s ANTIOX2™ blend is a comprehensive formula of MULTIPLE antioxidant-rich nutrients. It has the highest certified antioxidant potency of any supplement in liquid formulation. VIBE’s ANTIOX2™ helps the body neutralize the damaging effects of free radicals to effectively combat the aging process.*
  • Powerful antioxidant capability*
  • Helps the body counteract dangerous free radicals responsible for aging*
  • Nourishes healthy skin and hair*
  • Promotes energy and stamina*
  • Helps the body neutralize harmful environmental toxins*

Combining multiple and specific anti-aging nutrients, just like adding ingredients to a gourmet meal, requires correct amounts, balanced ratios, and the right mixing techniques. If any one component is out of balance, just like in making a gourmet meal, the end result is disappointing. That is why no other company has been able to perfect a comprehensive ALL-IN-ONE anti-aging supplement. Most companies focus either on one primary ingredient and promote the benefits of that ONE ingredient as a total health answer, OR combine very, very small (and ineffective) amounts of many ingredients to make the label ”look“ good. The end result is a product that delivers very little nutritional benefit.

At Eniva, we not only market nutritional wellness products, we ARE the researchers, we HAVE onsite Class 10,000 R&D laboratories, and we ARE the formulators and manufacturer.

Milk Thistle! Defend and Rebuild Your Liver!

We live in a toxic world, no one can dispute that. But it's our liver that takes a great majority of the burden. And the stresses to the liver are caused by more than just the chemical pollutants in the air. There are those in our food, in the pharmaceutical drugs that we take and even second hand smoke.

But the liver has more to do than just filter poisons out of our body. In order for us to remain healthy our liver also performs (but is not limited to) the following functions:

Blood detoxification and purification

Metabolism of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates

Bile production and excretion

Enzyme activation

Excretion of bilirubin, cholesterol, hormones, and drugs

Care of the liver is key to TOTAL BODY HEALTH!

One way that we can assist the liver and our health is by taking Milk Thistle, also known by its botanical name, silybum marianum, or by its 3 main active compounds collectively known as silymarin.

Milk Thistle is an herb with an ability to defend and rebuild the liver. It is considered by many to be the best product for liver detoxification, protection and regeneration. Its active compounds silymarin is ten times more potent as an antioxidant, than Vitamin E. This makes this powerful antioxidant helpful in preventing free radical damage throughout the body, but especially in the liver, stomach, and intestines.

This cleansing and fortifying herb assists the liver in in part, by preventing the reduction of glutathione. In fact studies show that Milk Thistle actually increases glutathione levels significantly and it is the glutathione, an amino-acid like compound that is critical to neutralizing toxins.

There are now 137 scientific studies on pubmed, heralding the benefits of Milk Thistle. For additional information on this beneficial herb, you may want to go to pubmed and check it out yourself.

When purchasing Milk Thistle, it is important that you choose a standardized product which contains a minimum of 70% to 80% silymarin in each dose. This would ensure that a significant amount would reach the bloodstream and eventually reach the liver, giving you the full therapeutic benefits.

So if you are feeling sluggish, or suspect your liver needs a bit of help, you might take a look at an amazing herb called Milk Thistle!

Vitamins and Minerals! Do We Really Need To Supplement!

We believe the answer is a resounding, YES!

A study from the American Medical Association shows that vitamin and mineral deficiencies in the American population could be a factor in many chronic diseases. Even our government has stated, that due to soil depletion, our fruits and vegetables are lacking in sufficient levels of vitamins and minerals. Therefore, all adults should take a vitamin and mineral supplement.

Many doctors and nutritional health experts have made the statement that all vitamins are not created equal. There are many inexpensive vitamins on the market that are taken in one small tablet, just once a day. If you study these, you will see that the nutrient count is very small, and they are generally created using synthetic material, binders and fillers. Our bodies were not designed to break down these materials. It's pretty typical to find that you get what you pay for. Millions of dollars are spent almost daily on nutritional supplements here in the U.S. Therefore, if you're going to take the time and spend good money, it's best to try and purchase high quality products.

We have taken the time to educate ourselves about the quality and health enhancing effects of supplementation and know how life changing it can be.

Please, don't misunderstand. It is still very important to eat an array of colorful fruits and vegetables every day. Whole foods should be our main source of nourishment and supplements are meant to compliment them and take up the slack. This is important, because natural foods contain many different nutrients and enzymes that haven't even been discovered or recognized yet, and may very well assist in the synergistic effect and absorption rate.

Our bodies produce thousands of free radicals every day. In addition to this onslaught, we live in a toxic environment, endure high stress, and make bad food choices. All of these take a toll on our bodies ability to thrive. Supplementation simply gives us additional nutrients to remain healthy and assists our immune system in reversing the damaging affects of modern life.

Processed and fast food products:

Processed food products are beautifully boxed, canned, and packaged to entice the consumer. They are at our fingertips in grocery stores, quickie marts, gas stations and just about everywhere else. These fake foods are widely promoted to appeal to our senses. And the large add campaigns make them appear to look good, smell good, taste good. We're led to believe they are safe for human consumption and we all eat them almost every day (well, almost all of us). Ever heard of the term overfed and undernourished?

Research has proven that through the manufacturing process many vital nutrients are lost. With the addition of added ingredients to make them more palatable and have longer shelf life (Hydrogenated oils, trans-fats, monosodium glutamate/msg, sodium nitrate, aspartame, etc.), processed food can become problematic to our health.

Fast foods

Fast food restaurants are everywhere. Most of us eat these foods and this is okay on occasion, but many people eat the majority of their meals from fast food restaurants. If you do this long enough you're headed for ill health. Some fast food chains are adding healthier items to their menus and this will continue as we the consumers keep demanding more healthy foods, but of course that really isn't the solution to good health.

As we stated above, eating processed and fast food can be okay on occasion. But do to the lack of quality nutrients it doesn't take long before signs of nutritional deficiencies begin to show via declining health. Eating as close to what God has provided for us is imperative. Eating good clean select meats (without hormones and antibiotics), plenty of colorful fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds will put you on the right tract for good health. Adding good quality nutritional supplements to take up the slack will certainly be additionally beneficial.

We really don't have to spend our lives overfed and undernourished.

Need Minerals? Hear From The Experts!

"You can trace every sickness, every disease, and every ailment to a mineral deficiency." Dr. ~Linus Pauling, winner of two Nobel Prizes

"Your mineral needs are even more important than your vitamin needs since the human body cannot make minerals."
~Dr. Henry Schroeder, MD, Ph.D.

"The alarming fact is that foods (fruits, vegetables and grains) now being raised on millions of acres of land that no longer contain enough of certain minerals are starving us - no matter how much of them we eat. No man of today can eat enough fruits and vegetables to supply his system with the minerals he requires for perfect health because his stomach isn't big enough to hold them." 74th Congress, 2nd Session, 1936.

"Scientific study has shown minerals are absolutely essential to life on this planet."
~Dr. Alexander Schouss, Ph.D.

"It becomes clearly evident that keeping a mineral balance in every tissue, fluid, cell and organ in the human body is a key to maintaining human health."
~Minerals, Trace Elements, and Human Health (1999)

“The cell is the most basic unit of life and the human body is made up of trillions of cells. Like the body as a whole, every single cell must have minerals with which to stay alive and carry out its functions. Unfortunately, foods are no longer reliable mineral sources. Most (if not all) agricultural soils have been depleted due to practices that have failed to replenish the soils after repeated planting. Population surveys also consistently find large segments of the population are deficient in one or more minerals, most often magnesium, iron, zinc, calcium, or chromium.
~Dr. Parris M. Kidd, Ph.D., “Speaks Out For Ionic Minerals”

"In the absence of minerals, vitamins have no function."
~Dr. Mathias Rath

A Simple Mini Detox For Your Health!

You’ve heard the old saying…Wash your mouth out with soap…but what about Wash your mouth out with Oil. Vegetable oil that is!

Sounds strange?
Well it did to us too…until I tried it. It is practiced in Chinese and Ayurveda medicine to clear toxins and cure disease…

What do you do?

You simply rinse the teeth and gums very thoroughly with a tablespoon of any vegetable oil. For example…sesame seed, almond or olive oil.…and gently move it around your mouth with a sort of sucking or swishing action….for about 15-20 minutes. You can do this up to 3 times a day on an empty stomach. Other practitioners however, believe that the oil should only be left in for 5-minute intervals before spitting. This is to prevent ingesting the toxins back into the body.

When finished, spit out the oil and wash the mouth out with water or brush your teeth. The oil will be thin and milky. It is poisonous with bacteria… so do not swallow it.

There have been many health claims related to this practice. The first sign of improvement is that the teeth will become firm and white.We‘ve read an account of an Indian fellow whose teeth were loose. It was suggested that he have a full extraction because the rot was too deep. After doing this procedure over a 6-month period of time, his teeth were still intact.

Here’s the theory behind the swish…taken from curezone article:
While sucking the oil, the human salivary glands produce saliva, and with that saliva, the body dumps toxins. During this time, the stomach produces digestive juices, expecting the oil to be swallowed. The liver starts producing bile, expecting the oil to be swallowed. In that bile, the liver dumps heavy metals and some other toxins. Oil sucking will cause a production of bile, and it will increase excretion of bile. That way it will improve digestion, intestinal health, colon health, and prevent constipation.

A few other healing indications mentioned in the articles we read were:

Disappearance of dark pouches below the eyes
More energy
Deep Sleep
Clearing of Psoriasis
Less aches and pains
Better memory

WE are not making claims regarding this procedure but are simply reporting what we have read. However, we did want to include that the information, does acknowledge that reversing many conditions could take anywhere from two days to a year. Adding, that of course this would depend on the condition.

You might consider giving it a try. And if you do, you can discover for yourself whether you find any healthful benefits.

US Senate Document 264 from the 74th Congress in 1936 Second Session!

Our physical well-being is more directly dependent upon minerals we take into our systems than upon calories or vitamins, or upon precise proportions of starch, protein or carbohydrates we consume.

Do you know that most of us today are suffering from certain dangerous diet deficiencies which cannot be remedied until depleted soils from which our food comes are brought into proper mineral balance?

The alarming fact is that foods, fruits and vegetables and grains, now being raised on millions of acres of land that no longer contains enough of certain needed minerals, are starving us-no matter how much of them we eat! No man of today can eat enough fruits and vegetables to supply his system with the minerals he requires for perfect health because his stomach isn't big enough to hold them.

The truth is that our foods vary enormously in value, and some of them aren't worth eating as food...Our physical well-being is more directly dependent upon the minerals we take into our systems than upon calories or vitamins or upon the precise proportions of starch, protein or carbohydrates we consume.

This talk about minerals is novel and quite startling. In fact, a realization of the importance of minerals in food is so new that the text books on nutritional dietetics contain very little about it. Nevertheless, it is something that concerns all of us, and the further we delve into it the more startling it becomes.

You'd think, wouldn't you, that a carrot is a carrot-that one is about as good as another as far as nourishment is concerned? But it isn't; one carrot may look and taste like another and yet be lacking in the particular mineral element which our system requires and which carrots are supposed to contain.

Laboratory tests prove that the fruits, the vegetables, the grains, the eggs, and even the milk and the meats of today are not what they were a few generations ago (which doubtless explains why our forefathers thrived on a selection of foods that would starve us!)

No man of today can eat enough fruits and vegetables to supply his stomach with the mineral salts he requires for perfect health, because his stomach isn't big enough to hold them! And we are running too big stomachs.

No longer does a balanced and fully nourishing diet consist merely of so many calories or certain vitamins or a fixed proportion of starches, proteins and carbohydrates. We know that our diet must contain in addition something like a score of mineral salts.

It is bad news to learn from our leading authorities that 99% of the American people are deficient in these minerals, and that a marked deficiency in any one of the more important minerals actually results in disease. Any upset of the balance, any considerable lack of one or another element, however microscopic the body requirement may be, and we sicken, suffer, shorten our lives.

We know that vitamins are complex chemical substances which are indispensable to nutrition, and that each of them is of importance for the normal function of some special structure in the body. Disorder and disease result from any vitamin deficiency. It is not commonly realized, however that vitamins control the body's appropriation of minerals, and in the absence of mineral's they have no function to perform. Lacking vitamins, the system can make some use of minerals, but lacking minerals, vitamins are useless.

Certainly our physical well-being is more directly dependent upon the minerals we take into our systems than upon calories or vitamins or upon the precise proportions of starch, protein or carbohydrates we consume." This discovery is one of the latest and most important contributions of science to the problems of human health.
