You can do the same thing as those expensive health spas with this months free promotion.

Simply go to the drug store, or better yet a dollar store, and get a couple of elastic ace bandages.

Leave it on for 45 minutes to an hour, then remove it to see your results. Repeat daily for more permanent results.

About the New Self Formula

This stimulating massage oil is a blend of pure essential oils in a natural oil and vitamin E base. It contains: Lemon, Grapefruit, Rose Geranium, Juniper Berry and Helichrysum essences in a base of Sweet Almond, Safflower, Apricot Kernal, Aloe Vera, Jojoba and Vitamin E oils. The blend is designed to stimulate the lymphatic system and aid in circulation and movement of fluids. It aids in detoxification; purging and cleansing the body of impurities. And it assists in breaking down cellulite fat deposits so that they can be flushed from the body making it the perfect massage oil for cellulite and fat reduction.

100% pure and natural essential oils are precious because of the expense of extraction. Pure essential oils require large amounts of the original plant to yield a potent essence with no artificial ingredients. Our New Self Cellulite Massage Oil contains the essences of a great quantity of herbs, fruits and flowers. And the large 4 ounce bottle will yield many massages.

New Self Metabolism/Weight-loss Formula: Read All About It!
The Herbs:

This formula is a blend of pure extracts of Yerba Mate, Green Tea, Ginger Root, Nettle Leaf and Dandelion Root. Alcohol-free, Bio-Chelated*, Holistically balanced, Full Medicinal Strength (1ml= 1000mg).

Usage: Use 1 to 2 ml three times per day. Best when added to a hot beverage before meals.

The Research and Benefits:

Yerba Mate: This wonder of South America has yet to make inroads in the U.S. but it may be one of the primary reasons that weight problems are rare in these countries. Yerba Mate tea can increase metabolic rates by nearly 25%, reduce appetite, and energize without the jittery effects of caffeine or ephedra. South Americans drink this tea the same way that we drink coffee. Used on a regular basis this tea can do wonders for a diet. Drinking 8 oz before a meal can be as effective as diet drugs in taking the edge off your appetite and yet the herb is a rich source of magnesium that has been proven to ease anxiety. So it is unlike formulas such as Metabolife that reduce appetite by overstimulating the central nervous system.

Green Tea: The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition conducted a study in which it was found that green tea extract significantly increased energy expenditure (a measure of metabolism), and fat oxidation. The researchers felt that this study had wonderful implications for weight control. The study indicated a nearly 40% increase in daytime thermogenesis. In other words, dieters would burn 40% more fat during the day with Green Tea Extract. Is it possible that this is one of the reasons for lower obesity levels in areas of the world where more green tea is consumed?

Ginger Root: Dubbed the “miracle slimming spice that burns fat” by Woman’s World magazine, ginger root is the healthiest herb to use for weight control. Ginger can boost your sense of fullness by 300%, help to prevent cancer and heart attacks and improve your mood. Ginger is rich in natural plant compounds that can reduce stress and anxiety and improve your mood in as little as 10 minutes. A recent study found that ginger can reduce triglyceride levels 27% and LDL cholesterol by 33% - enough to slash your heart attack risk in half. Tom Newmark, author of “Beyond Aspirin” said of ginger, “It’s as if nature packed an entire medicine chest into one small plant.”

Dandelion: Dandelion has a long history of use as a blood cleanser and liver function stimulator. It is used to reduce cholesterol and uric acid, and to improve the function of the kidneys, pancreas, spleen and stomach. It is thought to be useful in the prevention of age spots (liver spots) and is helpful in weight loss due to the improvement in liver function. Dandelion contains taraxacin which stimulates bile flow and improves the digestive organs, and pectin, a type of fiber that relieves constipation, lowers cholesterol and binds to toxins, removing them from your system. It also contains inulin which is known to help balance blood sugar levels reducing urges to binge on food. Because of this and the liver improvement, dandelion is also considered useful in the treatment of diabetes.

Nettle Leaf: Nettle leaf is a wonderful general health tonic that improves many facets of health. It stimulates the endocrine system improving energy and vitality. Also helpful for allergies, arthritis and healthy hair.

Other Herbs for Weight Control:

5-HTP: Natural precursor to seratonin helps with mood, appetite and sleep.

Psyllium Husk Capsules: Natural fiber reduces appetite, improves digestion and eases problems with low carb diets.

Cayenne Capsules: Raises metabolism rates, improves digestion and increases circulation. Also great for pain relief and arthritis.

Chickweed Capsules: Age old reputation as a slimming herb from folk medicine. Nutritional powerhouse herb that lowers blood lipids (fats).

New Lemon Balm Extract

Lemon Balm is a very popular and widely used herb in Europe. It is just now coming into use in the U.S. It is a powerful anti-viral herb as well as a relaxant and mental stimulant, and the top treatment for herpes.

Lemon Balm Extract: The Research, Health Benefits and Greenbush Quality.

Benefits of Lemon Balm*: Amenhorrhea, anxiety, chronic fatigue, cold sores, Graves' disease, headaches, Herpes virus, hypothyroidism, insomnia, mental clarity and concentration, relaxation, shingles and viral infections. *From "The Green Pharmacy" by Dr. James Duke.

Lemon Balm reseach and Medical Uses:

Mental Clarity, Concentration and Relaxation: Lemon balm is widely used to treat anxiety and insomnia in Europe. It reduces anxiety and stress and eases sleep disorders. Recently it produced an unexpected result in a research study: it greatly increased the ability to concentrate and perform word and picture tasks.

Helpful for Homework? In a study of lemon balm at Northumbria Univeristy in England students were tested for weeks while using either Lemon balm or a placebo. The students did significantly better on the tests after taking Lemon balm and continued to post improved scores for up to six hours after taking the herb. The students taking Lemon balm were noted to be calmer and less stressed during the tests. (From Prevention Magazine Sept. 2004)

Herpes and Anti-viral Properties: Lemon balm is commonly used in Europe to treat cold sores, herpes and shingles as well as other viral afflictions. Studies have shown a significant reduction in the duration and severity of herpes. Researchers also noted a "tremendous reduction" in the frequency of recurrence. Studies of Lemon balm and herpes have yielded more positive results than the use of the pharmaceutical drup Zovirax.

Insomnia/Anxiety: Several studies have used Lemon balm, and Lemon balm/Valerian combinations to treat stress, anxiety and insomnia. The studies have shown improved sleep patterns and reduced stress and anxiety. In one study a Lemon balm/Valerian combination was found to be as effective as the prescription drug Halcion.

Thyroid and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Lemon balm is used in Europe for treating thyroid problems and has shown an ability to regulate thyroid hormone production. This ability, along with the herbs anti-viral characteristics have made the herb useful in the treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Elderberry (Sambuca) Extract

Elderberry (Sambucus) is now available in our new line of Bio-chelated*, alcohol free, medicinal strength herbal extracts. And in a value priced 4 oz size. These quick absorbing extracts are quickly becoming popular due to their effectiveness. Why use anything else? 4oz bottle (120ml) yields 240 medicinal doses of 500mg.

Elderberry Extract: The Research, Health Benefits and Greenbush Quality.

Benefits of Elderberry*: Immune system boost, anitoxidant activity, anthocyanins, cough, cold flu, bacterial infections, virul infections, tonsilitis, HIV, lower cholesterol, improved vision, heart health. *From "The Green Pharmacy" by Dr. James Duke.

Elderberry reseach and Medical Uses:

Immune Boost: In Karlsruhe, Germany, at the Bundesforschungsanstalt research center for food, scientists conduct studies on dietary agents containing nutrients believed to be beneficial to health. The research on Elderberry is led by the center's director, Dr. Gerhard Rechkemmer. Rechkemmer's investigations show that elderberry anthocyanins enhance immune function by boosting the production of cytokines. These unique proteins act as messengers in the immune system to help regulate immune response, thus helping to defend the body against disease. Dr. Rechkemmer says that he believes the further research on elderberry will reveal additional health benefits.

Antioxidant activity: In further research led by Dr. Gerhard Rechkemmer, anthocyanins found in elderberries possess appreciably more antioxidant capacity than either vitamin E or vitamin C.

Studies at Austria's University of Graz found that elderberry extract reduces oxidation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. Oxidation of LDL cholesterol is implicated in atherogenesis, thus contributing to cardiovascular disease.

Bio-Chelation and Our New Extracts

The Greenbush line of pure quality, medicinal strength extracts is expanding. The alcohol free, holistically balanced extracts are a full 1:1 potency, meaning that 1ml is equal to 1000mg of herb. And the Bio-chelation process allows us to offer these at a value price.

Full medicinal potency, pure quality, value pricing. Why use anything else?

Until Bio-Chelation there was simply no good way to make a potent alcohol-free extract. Greenbush alcohol free extracts begin with organic alcohol regardless of whether the final product contains alcohol or not. After finishing the first step in the plant extraction, an additional step is performed to remove the alcohol. This is done by utilizing a proprietary cold extraction process called Bio-Chelation®. Bio-Chelation® describes the cold process vacuum distillation method, which removes all the alcohol initially used to obtain the good herbal extract.

It is important to note that a cold extraction process, as opposed to a heat extraction process, helps maintain the full spectrum, or Holistic BalanceTM of the plant's constituents in the final product. The end-result is an alcohol-free extract containing the essential properties of the complete herb in a base of vegetable glycerin and water. (Vegetable glycerin is used because it can help to bind certain plant constituents, is natural to the body, easily absorbed, tastes sweet without affecting blood sugar levels, and acts as a good solvent and carrier for the plant constituents).
