This time of year we are bombarded with claims from companies offering pills, programs, diets and meal plans that will make you slim. Many of these are misleading and recently the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) fined the marketers (Xenadrine EFX, One-A-Day WeightSmart, CortiSlim and TrimSpa) of four weight-loss pills $25 million for making false advertising claims including fast weight-loss and even cancer prevention. It is nice to see the government acting on and going after these fraudsters.

Who is Using Vibration Machines?

For the past few years I have been reporting my findings on vibration exercise machines and gathering more research. I have now worked with and talked to many people that using vibration exercise fitness machines to get in shape and to lose weight. Like most, I was very skeptical when I was first introduced to the technology but the more I researched the science behind the more intrigued I got. I found that most professional sports teams in the USA were using vibration machines for one reason or another. Some for training, some for rehab/therapy and some for stretching and core workouts.

I also found that vibration exercise had been adopted by medical professionals such as physiotherapists, chiropractors and spinal therapy specialists. The interesting thing is that many of these professionals a few years ago laughed at whole-body vibration fitness as a real science and medical treatment. Now that they had become educated and experienced on vibration exercise machines their view had completely changed. I found this is a common evolution with most people and their experience with vibration machines.

Benefits of Vibration Plate Fitness

So how can vibration do so much good for us? The basics are very simple and I found that once I had used the machine just once, I understood how it worked. When you exercise you contract and stretch your muscles under force. This causes small tears in the muscle which then are repaired and rebuilt even stronger. The vibration machine exercise does exactly this but in much smaller movements, about 3mm to 10mm. Your muscles do not care how much they are moving as long as they are contracting and stretching under force. The result is not only the same but better. In one minute on a vibration machine you can get 1500 muscle contractions, compared to maybe 60 to 200 doing traditional exercise. This is how the whole-body vibration workout only takes 10 to 15 minutes.

Beyond the muscle workout there are many other benefits that are not so obvious starting with Weight-loss. A new study presented at the Congress on Obesity showed that vibration exercise fitness was up to 4 times as effective as traditional exercise with fat loss. 60 minutes of cardio versus 15 minutes of vibration exercise machine use and vibration fitness won? This surprised everybody and has created a shockwave around the globe. Not only did the vibration fitness group lose much more fat but they were able to keep it off even after stopping using vibration for 6 months. The cardio group all experienced the yo yo effect and gained back the weight they had lost. Somehow vibration exercise is able to reset the bodies “Weight Set-Point” which is key to long term weight-loss. This is a game changer in the weight-loss industry and Vibration Exercise has is becoming adopted into many weight-loss program now.

North America is currently experiencing an epidemic in Osteoporosis and the drug companies are having a hay day selling drugs to treat it. In reality the drugs have been proven to have very little benefits and are costing consumers hundreds of millions a year. Vibration Exercise machines build bone mass naturally and are very effective at preventing bone loss.

My Results

As for myself and my wife our results continue to be impressive. We have both lost more weight and continue to get stronger. Our energy levels are up and overall we really feel better. My experience has been so positive that I have got many of my friends to start using whole-body vibration and they have really benefited from it.

Vibration Exercise Machine Buyer Tips

The most common question I get is “what machine to buy” and the answer is depends on how much you want to spend. We have had a VibraSlim Europlate for a few years now and we love it. There are many other good brands out there though such as Power Plate, Turbosonic and Pila-vibe although they do cost considerably more.

Beware of the dozens of websites and stores selling Chinese made vibration machines. These machines are notorious for breaking down and trying to repair them is futile. The Chinese machines, like most things from china, are made to be disposable and not made to repaired easily even if you are able to find parts. I have heard many horror stories of $2000 machines breaking after a few months and ending up in the garbage.

Unless you buy from a reputable company like the ones I have mentioned you are gambling with you’re your hard earned money. Many websites say they have service and warranties, but most of them are just selling machines and never providing any customer service. So beware!

I hope my investigating and reporting has helped you and I will continue to present my findings.

There are many people looking for ways to prevent sweating, and most of them are suffering from an excessive sweating condition known medically as hyperhidrosis.

Hyperhidrosis sufferers are easily spotted by the wet sweat stains on their shirts. It causes social embarassment to the person when the people around him or her spots the wet shirt stains. I’ve personally suffered from excessive sweating before, and I know how damaging it can be to your self-esteem.
However, it need not be this way as there are breakthrough treatment methods today that are completely natural and causes no side effects. Learn more about how I treated my sweating problem by following the link at the end of this article.

If you suffer from excessive sweating, you should avoid wearing tight fitting clothes as they create very little air circulation and make your sweat stains more obvious. Go for natural loose fabrics that allow better air flow within your body. These natural fabrics include silk and cotton.

Try to drink lots of water to reduce your toxin levels, and avoid eating foods like caffeine-rich foods and alcohol excessively. Such foods are known to induce sweating, if consumed in large amounts.

Relax yourselves as much as you can, and avoid getting into stressful or anxious situations if possible.

If your sweating condition is too severe, you may need to turn to medical treatment methods. The most common treatment is to use antiperspirants. They can work extremely well for mild sweating cases, but it has never really worked for me because my sweating was too profuse.

Another treatment method is botox injections. These injections are usually effective, but are extremely expensive costing thousands of dollars, and need to be repeated typically every six to ten months. Patients of botox injections have also complained of pain, therefore it is up to you to decide whether you are willing to pay the costs.

The final method to prevent sweating, which is also the most invasive method, is surgery. Surgery is usually fast and painless, but there are cases where people with underarm sweating go for surgery and stop sweating in their underarms, but start sweating in other areas of their body. This condition, known as compensatory sweating, can be one of the side effects of surgery.

To prevent sweating, try to maintain the healthy habits described above. If they are not stopping your sweating completely, try the natural remedies method that I have personally used successfully.

Do you want to treat excessive sweating naturally and easily? The author, Ricky Wallick, is an ex-hyperhidrosis sufferer who has used natural remedies to free himself from excess sweating. Visit his website at where he tells you about the natural remedy methods that he has tried from various guides he used.

Eczema is and unpleasant skin condition that causes itching and rashes. A good way to start treatment is to know what the causes are. What causes eczema outbreaks in one person might not cause outbreaks in another. You can learn what to stay away from when you know these causes. However, by knowing the common causes, you can learn to determine what yours is.

Chemicals
We live in a world filled with all types of chemicals. Some chemicals found in everyday products that you use have been known to trigger eczema outbreaks. This chemicals are found in perfumes, detergents etc. Others are scented soaps and lotions. When in close contact with your skin, they can trigger outbreaks.

Air Particles
There are some airborne allergens that can cause adverse skin reaction for eczema sufferers. Particles like dust and pollen are some of the most common. Contact with eczema prone skin can cause irritation, rashes and itching. Not all allergens will trigger outbreaks for you.

Weather
Extreme temperatures, whether cold or hot can lead to eczema outbreaks. Sweating causes some patients to experience outbreaks while other patients’ skins react to cold. You have to determine the optimum temperature for your skin. Wear proper clothing to keep warm in cold weather and try to stay as cool as you can in hot weather.

Stress
It has been debated whether stress causes eczema or not. The fact remains however, that a lot of sufferers have experience outbreaks in periods when they were stressed. If you experience outbreaks due to stress, you have to learn relaxation methods to control stress.

Food
The food that you eat everyday has an impact on your skin. Food is one of the things that trigger eczema outbreaks. It takes a bit of trial and error and diligent observation for you to find out the foods that your skin reacts to. Most common are nuts and spicy foods.

To Learn Effective Ways To Beat Eczema.

Beat Eczema Book Review

September 6, 2010

I wanted to take a few minutes to review the ebook, Beat Eczema. This is a rather new ebook which promises to rid you of annoying itchy red skin in 10 days. It was written by author Susan Clark, who herself was an eczema sufferer.

As she mentions both on her website and in her ebook, she had been through the trials and tribulations of eczema, dealing with the annoying creams, pills and prescriptions. If you suffer from the disease then you know all about how difficult it can be to overcome eczema.

Here are a few things I really like about the ebook.

One is the format. It is, again, available for instant download. This is incredibly convenient, as you can read reviews, go to the website and download a copy. It also makes for an easy return if you’re not satisfied with your purchase. She offers a 60 day money back guarantee.

Another thing I like about her book is that she attacks the cause of the illness. If you’ve read much literature on eczema at all, you know that most treatments tend to go after the symptoms, which is why they eventually fail. I can tell you first hand that this can be one of the most frustrating parts of the disease.

Her approach to the disease is very down to earth, with one and only concept in mind, beat eczema. She hits on the root causes of eczema and then attacks each one with an all natural remedy.

Speaking of all natural, that’s probably my #4 favorite thing about her book. Rather than loading your skin with chemicals and various other harmful agents, she takes a holistic approach to the disease. That’s something that almost no doctor is going to do and I can really appreciate.

The cost of the book was reasonable, ringing in at only $29.99 and also includes a slew of other ebook bonuses.

If you’re knew to purchasing ebooks, I can tell you the benefits to this over a traditional “real copy” is immense. I personally print a copy of the book, but it’s also convenient to save on a flash drive and carry with you where ever you go.

The Cheat Your Way Thin program has been getting a lot of attention lately as many fitness experts have recommended it as a great and fun way to lose weight. But what is the true nature of this program and does it really work?

As with any Health Program, Cheat Your Way Thin will not work for everyone. Weight loss is a personal thing and so what works for one person does not work for everyone. However, it is likely to work for most people and for you as well.

The reason is that Joel Marion, the creator of this program, has spent a lot of time in researching and fine-tuning the material in this program to make sure it works exactly as it should and produces the very finest results. And after 5 years of research it’s no wonder that this program works for so many people.

The testimonials Cheat Your Way Thin received are enough to show how this program truly helps people to get lean while helping them preserve their muscle tissue mass and to work with their body to create life long eating habits which will get them to not only lose weight but to keep it off far into the future.

Cheat Your Way Thin works by allowing you to eat your favorite foods during the diet. Before you begin to think that this is to good to be true, I need to say that this is only allowed on occasion, and not on a daily basis, and works only when you do it strategically, according to the guidelines that Joel Marion developed.

What cheating gives you is a way to enjoy your weight loss program in a way which makes it easy to stick to it for a long time. You still need to eat healthy, fresh, and lean food most of the time, but as Joel Marion discovered, “cheating” can actually help your body to burn off fat even faster than if you would have avoided your favorite foods altogether.

This 7 part program includes, video, audio, and reading material which is comprehensive and provides many way for you to remain committed to the process. I believe that this is a great way to shed weight and do it in a fun way.
