Many products and programmes compete for your attention and some can take an unrealistic one-size-fits all approach to helping you.

FitChoice engages both your body and your brain, so you can reset your habits and attitudes and make long-term, sustainable lifestyle changes.

Health & lifestyle essentials

Health & lifestyle essentials

What I’m going to start my talk with , you may think has no relevance to Neways & their products – but to understand the reason behind these products you have to understand a little bit about the ” history of the modern woman/ man”

I am, as they say, of a certain age – therefore I can remember when life was ” simple”
One had ones bar of soap & minimal cosmetics – meat didn’t come in boxes, it came from the butcher. 

When you went shopping , you went to each individual shop – you knew where things came from ( mainly) – food did not need instructions or disclaimers, there were no ” anti- bacterial” soaps, houses weren’t ” clinically clean” or ” hermetically sealed” – most times you learnt about food,eating & general living from watching Mum & on a little stool next to your Mum – and making ” grey- pastry” biscuits or at least they looked like that by the time you had finished ” helping Mum” !
Now I’m not saying you don’t do these things – but in general ” life” has taken over & a large percentage of the population do not make time for ” living” -deadlines,stress,even to a certain degree ” social media ” have changed the way we live -
& as a consequence we have never been so well fed- but so poorly nourished.
So this is my starting point for tonight – if we can understand our bodies – then we can take charge of our health – inside & out.
Let’s start with the inside – according to Dr Natasha Campbell McBride – www.gap.me  ( Dr,Masters in Med Science Neurology & Nutrition)
 ” all diseases start in the gut “
there is a connection between the state of your gut & the rest of the body.
 Everyone has heard of the ” central nervous system” but just as important, if not more so is the ” gut or ( enteric) nervous system” – it has been called the ” second brain” . The gut actually tells the brain what to look for in the larder when the going gets tough – which is why sometimes a ” mac ‘n cheese looks better than an apple at that moment in time.
There is a vast mass of gut bacteria – most of them ” friendly ” or good bacteria – in fact without bacteria there would be no life as we know it .
So looking after your gut is vitally important – having a ” good gut flora” is the body’s defense against invaders ,
*detoxification,
*appropriate digestion & absorption,
*vitamins & your immune system.
B Vitamins – B1,2,3,6 & 12 ,Biotin ( necessary for cell growth, production of fatty acids & metabolism of fats & amino acids)
& active substances are produced by your gut flora.
Nature provides us with our own factory to produce B Vitamins – if your gut flora is compromised, natural B Vitamins won’t be produced.
When people lose their gut flora, they become pale & pasty -
abnormal gut flora = pale & dark circles under the eyes (lots of young girls have this )
Restore your gut flora & the face becomes rosy again! We produce a new gut lining every few months.
So we have a good opportunity to replace the bad bacteria.
The cell regeneration process is fast.With the aid of Dr Natasha Campbell McBride – Neways developed a probiotic -
ProtoZymes - https://www.neways.com/gb-en-gb/ProductInfo.aspx?p=9962&PageId=106 * five strains of beneficial probiotic bacteria,
* promotes growth of beneficial bacteria in the gastro- intestinal tract
* encourages inhibition of pathogenic bacteria
* promotes the removal of toxins in the gastro- intestinal tract
* stable dairy free capsule format -
* suitable for vegans & vegetariansContinuing the thought of boosting your ” healthy life”
Minerals are necessary to keep our bodies functioning properly- unfortunately due to soil depletion, we no longer obtain the all essential minerals & trace elements through the food we eat – plants can still grow in soils lacking minerals -
but as these minerals are vital to humans- a lack of them can result in deficiency problems.
The body needs 60 different minerals on a daily basis & is dependent upon these organic colloidal minerals to perform tens of thousands of biological functions.
These minerals also play an essential & critical role in DNA synthesis.
Old cells are always being replaced & are almost totally dependent on trace minerals.
Therefore organic colloidal minerals are the essential ” spark of life” that generate & maintain electrical production in our bodies,
but they have to be replaced.
is the best mineral supplement in the world – it contains 52 macro,micro & trace minerals -
it features B-Vitamins,amino acids, phytochemicals & a prebiotic – it is sourced from non- GMO components – & has a high bio- availability.
The other ” big players ” in the ” key nutritional selection” are :-
* Revenol -
a powerful broad spectrum anti- oxidant – rich formula providing both fat – soluble & water soluble antioxidants for optimal nutritional variety.
*Omega 3 EPA -
an essential for the production of fatty acid . Fatty acids are not made naturally by the body – so they must be consumed through diet.
*Green Qi -
supplies your body with a multitude of fruit & vegetable ingredients to help maintain energy,healthy body cells,boost antioxidants & support healthy digestion.So that’s got your inside sorted !
Plus in conjunction with your healthy inside – there is a system to help with your weight management -
* FitChoice not only a range of products to help you on your weight loss quest but also support tools such as a progress https://www.neways.com/gb-en-gb/ProductInfo.aspx?p=18931&PageId=106monitor
Being a FitChoice coach – We work together to achieve your goal.
So now we’ve addressed the inside needs -
lets look at the ” outside you “

What I’m going to tell you about now – is in “ open forum” & public documentation is easily accessible on the web  regarding this topic – but unless you are aware of the problems – then you don’t go looking do you ?!!

Scrubbing Yourself Clean and Purging Germs…
But At What Cost to Your Health?”

Bath and shower products, as part of the $50-billion personal care products industry

Indeed, from the looks of ads, enticing aromatic soaps and gels have clearly become part of that invigorating daily shower or relaxing hot bath experience.

But have you ever glimpsed at the label of that fragrantly silky gel you’re splashing over your hands and body or that bar of soap that promises to keep you smelling great all day long?

Do you really know what’s in those products you’re slathering over your body?

Do you know if those ingredients are safe?

If I were to tell you that your shower and bath products could be putting you at risk for less-than-optimal skin and eye health, immune and endocrine function, and possibly even cancer, would you pay a little more attention to your products’ ingredients?

When you or a family member bathe or shower with questionably safe products, you risk…

  • Exposing highly sensitive mucous membranes
  • Inhaling ingredient fumes and irritating your lungs
  • Accidentally swallowing potentially toxic ingredients
  • Absorption through your skin, your largest organ
  • Contact with your eyes

Soaps and Shower Gels: What You Don’t Know CAN Harm You

Did you know that applying a substance to your skin isn’t much different from eating it? In fact, I believe it may be even worse.

And let’s not forget… a hot steaming shower…

  • Opens your skin pores
  • Drives a high absorption rate of chemicals directly into your system
  • Vaporizes 70 to 90% of the chemicals present so you inhale them into your lungs

When you consider that products such as shower gels and soaps may be used daily, you can imagine the chemical residue that may build up over the years.

What’s In Your Bottle of Shower Gel and Liquid Hand Soap?

Take a second and grab a bottle of your liquid hand soap or shower gel.

Most have the same basic six groups of ingredients to provide effective cleansing, lathering and moisturizing. These six groups of ingredients include:

  • Water

Typically the main ingredient listed in bath and shower gels. Functions as the liquid solvent for the other ingredients.

  • Emulsifiers

Act to increase foam and provide thickening for bath gels, giving them their gel-like consistency.

  • Detergents

Used to clean the skin.

  • Surfactants

Create a lather or foam when the bath gel or liquid soap is applied to the skin.

  • Preservatives

Extend the shelf life of bath gels and liquid soaps and prevent microbial contamination.

  • Fragrance

Most shower gels contain fragrance to cover up the chemical smell of other ingredients and to help make using the shower gel a pleasing experience. Most fragrances used in shower gels are synthetic. Some may be derived from essential oils and natural plant extracts. Which is why, sometimes, you feel tired instead of invigorated!

7 Questionable Ingredients to Avoid

Certain chemical ingredients can potentially cause problems for your skin when applied as a liquid or bar soap and are best avoided.

The 7 ingredients topping the “To Avoid” list include…

  1. Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfate (SLS/SLES)

Sodium lauryl sulfate is a surfactant, detergent and emulsifier used in thousands of cosmetic products, as well as in industrial cleaners. Present in nearly all shampoos, toothpastes, body washes and cleansers, liquid hand soaps, laundry detergents and bath oils and bath salts.

Although SLS originates from coconuts, the manufacturing process results in SLES/SLS being contaminated with 1,4 dioxane, a carcinogenic byproduct.

SLS is the sodium salt of lauryl sulfate, and is rated by the Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) Skin Deep Cosmetics Database as a “moderate hazard.”

SLS breaks down the skin’s moisture barrier, easily penetrates the skin, and allows other chemicals to penetrate by increasing skin permeability by approximately 100-fold.

Combined with other chemicals, SLS becomes a “nitrosamine”, a potent class of carcinogen.

Research studies have linked SLS to skin and eye irritation, organ toxicity, reproductive and developmental toxicity, endocrine disruption, neurotoxicity, cellular changes, possible mutations and cancer.

  1. Dioxane

Common in a wide range of products as part of PEG, Polysorbates, Laureth, and ethoxylated alcohols. These compounds are usually contaminated with high concentrations of highly volatile 1,4-dioxane which is easily absorbed through the skin.

This “probably carcinogen to humans” substance has received a “high hazard” rating from EWG’s Skin Deep and is especially toxic to the brain, central nervous system, kidneys and liver.

A synthetic derivative of coconut, watch for misleading language on labels, stating “comes from coconut”.

Avoid any product with indications of ethoxylation, which include: “myreth,” “oleth,” “laureth,” “ceteareth,” any other “eth,” “PEG,” “polyethylene,” “polyethylene glycol,” “polyoxyethylene,” or “oxynol,” in ingredient names.

  1. Parabens

Widely used as preservatives in an estimated 13,200 cosmetic and skin care products, parabens have been connected with breast cancer in studies.

They have hormone-disrupting qualities, mimicking estrogen, and interfere with the body’s endocrine system. Studies have shown that parabens can affect your body much like estrogens, which can lead to diminished muscle mass, extra fat storage, and male breast growth.

The EPA has linked methyl parabens in particular to metabolic, developmental, hormonal, and neurological disorders, as well as various cancers.

( We are lucky here in France that there is more of an awareness to the problems of “ suspect ingredients – but that doesn’t stop them being in certain products that we use day after day !)

  1. Propylene glycol

A common ingredient in personal care products, it’s been shown to cause dermatitis, kidney or liver abnormalities, and may inhibit skin cell growth or cause skin irritation.

Also found in engine coolants, antifreeze, rubber cleaners, adhesives, and paints and varnishes.

  1. Diethanolamine or DEA

DEA readily reacts with nitrite preservatives and contaminants to create nitrosodiethanolamine (NDEA), a known and potent carcinogen.

DEA also appears to block absorption of the nutrient choline, vital to brain development.

  1. Fragrance

Toluene, made from petroleum or coal tar, is found in most synthetic fragrances. Chronic exposure is linked to anemia, lowered blood cell count, liver or kidney damage, and may affect a developing fetus.

Synthetic fragrances can also be drying and irritating to your skin.

  1. Triclosan

The antibacterial agent added to many liquid hand soaps to help kill germs. Triclosan is suspected of contributing to the growing problem of antibiotic resistance.

Triclosan Can Transform Into Something Even More Dangerous

Here’s something else you may not know about that innocent-looking bottle of liquid hand soap sitting next to your sink.

When triclosan mixes with the chlorine in your tap water, chloroform is formed, which the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has classified as a probable human carcinogen.

And when combined with other disinfection byproducts (DBPs) in your tap water, this chloroform can raise the concentration of dangerous trihalomethanes (THMs) above the EPA’s maximum allowable amount.

Plus when exposed to sunlight can be turned into a dioxin – which in turn goes into the water table.

Trihalomethanes (THMs) are Cancer Group B carcinogens, meaning they’ve been shown to cause cancer in laboratory animals. Disinfection byproducts (DPBs) have also been linked to reproductive problems in both animals and humans.

Not only do you absorb them into your skin, these antimicrobial chemicals flow down your drain, contaminating the environment and food chain.

So, (let me ask you) I put to you … do you really want to put triclosan, SLS, parabens, dioxane, DEA, toluene, synthetic fragrances and propylene glycol (along with other chemicals we haven’t even talked about here) on your skin?

So you might ask “ why are these ingredients used, when there is such damming evidence the answer is

  • They are cheap & are easily incorporated into formulas
  • They create a foam ( that we have come to expect !)
  • The base formula for products for many different companies originate from “ universal vats” & then each company adds it’s own ingredients to create their “ marquee”
  • It takes years of R&D to change a formula & that is expensive

But there is good news – it is not all doom & gloom !

Due to public awareness – pressure is being put on pharmaceutical companies to “ clean up “ their act !

  • In 2010 Euro MPs announced that they want to ban 1000 ingredients by 2025
  • * In 2012 Johnson & Johnson announced that they were cutting 6 or so potentially harmful chemicals ( chemicals of concern) from a few of their products

But why wait ?

Why not have safe products now ?

Neways avoid over 3,000 ingredients of concern

Have been providing safe effective products without “ questionable” ingredients for over 25 years

Have over 200 products & markets them in 38 countries

They do not “ outsource” – they research the research – have a science advisory team  the SAB -

Of whom you can ask any question regarding any of the products

In 2013 alone they did over 35,000 tests.

As they say – the proof is in the pudding – many have been & will continue to benefit from Neways products .

It is my job to inform – yours to decide – I hope that by showing you the facts you will understand the need to be vigilant as to the products that you use.

& what is available to help your health & wellbeing.
