FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
A: The main purpose for the coffee enema is not to help with bowel movement, but rather to cleanse the liver and the blood while increasing the levels of glutathione S-transferase (GST), which is a liver enzyme with powerful detoxification powers. It conjugates drugs, poisons, and other compounds and eliminates them from the body. When you retain the coffee while performing the coffee enema, you are strengthening your colonic muscles which help to promote bowel movement even when you're not on the coffee enema. Bowel movement has much to do with the diet. One who takes plenty of fluid and is on a diet that is high in fibre, rarely has difficulty with bowel movement.
Q: I feel bloated after meals. What should I do?
A: Here are two main causes for your full and bloated stomach: gas and indigestion! They can be caused by many factors including: eating too much, eating too quickly, eating high fat foods, eating during stressful situations, or drinking during meals. Other causes or aggravators for the "full and bloated" feeling are: smoking, tiredness, ongoing stress, drinking too much alcohol, and medications that irritate the stomach lining.
What you can do – Eating high fibre and fresh salads or other raw foods help with digestion. We would also recommend that you consume 1 teaspoon of N.Zimes PA Plus before each meal and a sachet of Immuflora daily to ease the digestive process. Give it a try, and you could kiss indigestion goodbye!
Q: I have a 10-month old baby, is it okay to mix NewLife™ Raw Honey into her food or drinks?
A: For children below 12 months old, there is a risk of botulism from eating honey and it should be avoided. The spores of the Clostridium botulinum bacteria can be found in honey, and when ingested by an infant, the spores can release a toxin that causes botulism. Infant botulism is rarely fatal, and the same spores can be found in dust, soil, and some uncooked foods that adults are exposed to everyday. The risk is minimal, but should be avoided nonetheless. For children above 12 months old, raw honey as a healthy replacement for sugar, has proven to help with allergies, and is also a good source of wholesome nutrient and energy. Honey has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, and can be used topically to treat mild scrapes, cuts, and burns.
Q: Can I do the Detoxification & Rejuvenation Programme (DRP) without coffee enema?
A: During the DRP, toxins from different parts of the body are stirred up and flushed out into the bloodstream. When the toxins and dead or sick cells are in the bloodstream, the body may experience symptoms of healing reactions. The toxins and dead/sick cells are then removed from the body through the skin (skin scrubbing), and through the normal channels of lung, kidney, and bowels. Coffee enemas are essential during this time because they help remove toxins and dead/sick cells from the liver, the blood, and the bowel quickly. Without coffee enema, the body's own eliminating organs, i.e. the liver, kidneys, lungs, and the skin have to do the job of removing the toxins. This should not pose any problem if you are generally healthy, but it is not advisable for cancer patients or those on long-term medications, as they have higher toxicity levels and the stress on the liver may be too much to handle (without the coffee enema). Patients with skin problems who do the DRP without coffee enema will experience slightly aggravated skin problems as the toxins are eliminated through the skin.
Q: One of my friends told me that Colostrum is an anti-aging product. Can you advise on how ColostrumX might slow down the aging process?
A: Yes! ColostrumX contains natural growth factors such as human growth factors and insulin-like growth factors that help stimulate the regeneration of cellular tissues and delay the onset of aging. These hormones are necessary for the regeneration of all our body's cells and tissues. As we age, the amount of growth factors and growth hormones in the body are greatly reduced. Without these hormones, we begin to age and die. Therefore, supplementation is essential. ColostrumX also helps in maintaining and increasing bone mass - which is a key factor to remain healthy during old age.
Q: I have been consuming carrot juice daily for the past 2 months. My mum has been telling me that this will cause my skin to turn yellow. I am very concerned whether this daily intake will cause any toxic reactions or will it really make my skin turn yellow?
A: There is a possibility that your skin might have a slight yellow tone due to the intake of carrot juice. This is not because of any toxic reaction. Carrot juice does not cause any toxicity. Below, please find an excerpt from the book Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Juices (Editor's note: Interested in getting a copy? This book is available for sale at all NewLife™ offices).
"Intestinal and liver diseases are sometimes due to a lack of certain of the elements contained in properly prepared raw carrot juice. When this is the case, then a noticeable cleaning up of the liver may take place, and the material, which was clogging it, may be found to dissolve. Frequently this is released so abundantly that the intestinal and urinary channels are inadequate to care for this overflow, and in a perfectly natural manner it is passed into the lymph for elimination from the body by means of the pores of the skin. This material has a distinctly orange or yellow pigment and while it is being eliminated from the body it will sometimes discolour the skin. Whenever such a discolouration takes place after drinking carrot or other juices, it is an indication that the liver is getting a well-needed cleansing.
It is NOT the carrot juice itself nor the carotene that comes through the skin, as this discolouration will take place even if the juice is filtered to the point of clearing it of all colour pigment. It is practically an impossibility for the carrot pigment itself to come through the skin as it would be for the red pigment of the beet to turn the body red or the chlorophyll of the green vegetables to paint the skin green from within.
In any case, is it not better to have a healthy satin-like skin, even though it may be slightly on the carrot shade, than to have the pasty complexion which, together with its pimples and other blemishes, publicizes the unhealthy condition of the body?"
Q: I am very interested in the Detoxification & Rejuvenation Programme. I noticed that we are advised to use distilled water for drinking and for administering the coffee enema. Could you please let me know the difference between Distilled Water and Reverse Osmosis (RO) Water?
A: Reverse Osmosis (RO) is a filtration process whereby water is forced, under heavy pressure, through a synthetic, semi-permeable membrane, while contaminants are held back. However, like all filtration processes, RO's effectiveness depends on a number of variables, for example, the quality of the filter and the frequency of filter cleaning or replacement. When the membrane filter is new, RO is 70-90% effective in removing certain contaminants. In addition, RO system can be adversely affected by changes in water pressure and extreme temperature, which can cause deterioration of the membrane. The greatest disadvantage of RO is that this process is unable to remove bacteria from source water. Over time, clogging of the membrane pores occurs; iron, salts and bacteria accumulate on the membrane surface. This not only affects the performance of the RO system, it can cause serious bacterial contamination of your water. RO systems also vary in their ability to remove chlorides, nitrates and viruses.
In comparison, steam distillation consistently and reliably removes a much broader spectrum of contaminants - over 99.9% of all bacteria, viruses, chemicals, metals, and poisons are removed. Unlike RO, distillation is not affected by temperature, pressure, bacteria, and varying quality of source water.
RO is only filtration. Distillation is purification, the purest form of water available.
Q: I have been told that NewLife™ Extra Virgin Coconut Oil could help me strengthen my immune system. How does this work? Can I still take it if I am consuming other types of oil such as flax seed oil?
A: Coconut oil contains 48% Lauric Acid, naturally found in breast milk, which boosts the immune system and fortifies it against various infections and diseases. 2 to 3 tablespoons daily provide the body with sufficient amount of Lauric Acid to boost the immune system. Different oils provide different healing properties to the body and can be consumed together as part of your diet. In fact, Virgin Coconut Oil helps in the absorption of fat soluble vitamins (A,D,E,K) as well as Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids found in flax seed oil. It also facilitates the absorption of other minerals such as Calcium, Magnesium, and Iron.
Q: I am overweight. My friend recommended me NewLife™ ColostrumX to complement the weight loss programme that I am going through currently. Can ColostrumX really help? How does ColostrumX promote weight loss or will I put on extra weight after consuming it?
A: Yes, NewLife™ ColostrumX can help promote healthy weight loss. The natural growth factors and insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-1) in ColostrumX help the body metabolize fat more efficiently. According to medical research, if our body contain less IGF-1 factor during a fasting (diet) period, it burns muscle protein first before burning fat. That is not good. ColostrumX contains the only natural source of IGF-1 that stimulates cell growth and builds muscle cells. Besides, ColostrumX is natural, organic, and low fat. Because it is very low in fat content and calories, it will not cause you to put on additional weight. In fact, supplementing your exercise or weight loss regime with ColostrumX can help burn fat and build lean muscle mass.
Q: I am 56 years old. Recently, my doctor discovered that I have an ovarian cyst (5cm), and recommended surgery to remove the cyst. I am trying to avoid surgery. Can NewLife™'s Detoxification and Rejuvenation Programme (DRP) help?
A: Many diseases, whether it be a heart condition, fibroids or a simple headache, are results or symptoms of poison and nutritional deficiency. These two factors are the root problems that lead to the malfunctioning of the immune system or essential organs. The only way to rejuvenate an ailing body and bring it back to health is through a comprehensive and complete nutritional programme which eliminates toxins, stimulates the metabolism, revitalises sluggish waste removal functions of the liver and kidneys, and restores the nutritional balance in the body.
NewLife™'s Detoxification and Rejuvenation Programme is formulated to restore your body to a healthier state. It provides plenty of high quality nutrients to rejuvenate cell function, improves detoxification, and rebuilds one's supressed immune system.
Q: I am interested in your new product, Collasta. Apart from hydrolyzed marine collagen, it is said to contain powerful antioxidant called astaxanthin which can help to neutralize and prevent free radical damage in the body. What are free radicals? How can astaxanthin help to improve my health in general?
A: Free radicals are organic molecules responsible for aging, tissue damage, and possibly some diseases. They are like robbers which are deficient in energy, and they attack other cells (body cells) to satisfy themselves. They are produced when your body breaks down food, or through exposure to environmental factors such as tobacco, pollution, and radiation.
Astaxanthin is a type of marine carotenoid with great antioxidant power. Antioxidants are substances or nutrients in our foods which can prevent or slow down oxidative damage in our body. They act as "free radical scavengers" – preventing and repairing damage done by these free radicals. Not only that, Collasta also contains an antioxidant blend of vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin B complex, grape seed extract, tomato extract, pine bark extract and mangosteen that works synergically to create a powerful, all-natural anti-aging antioxidant and collagen complex that will bring you greater health and a stronger immune system!
Q: Why are we advised to take yoghurt and not milk since yoghurt is made from milk? When can a child start taking yoghurt?
A: Milk and yoghurt contain the same nutrients. However, yoghurt is predigested by friendly bacteria whereas milk is not. Many people have difficulty digesting milk. This causes allergies like asthma and skin problems. Eating yoghurt has two functions: (1) Supply of friendly bacteria. (2) Supply of predigested protein and calcium, and other nutrients. A child can start taking yoghurt the moment he/she starts taking milk. Yoghurt is recommended as it supplies the same nutrients as milk without stressing the digestive system.
Q: I have had severe constipation for a long time and a friend recommended Herbal Klenz to overcome my problem. I am very happy with the results but I have one concern: Will Herbal Klenz interfere in any way with the absorption of minerals and vitamins in my colon?
A: No. Herbal Klenz will not interfere with the absorption of nutrients in the colon. In fact, it may actually improve the absorption of minerals and vitamins in the colon by removing the gluey layers that cover the villi of the small intestines. Villi in the small intestines are finger-like projections that line the walls of the small intestines. They help with the absorption of nutrients in the body but can malfunction when coated or clogged with accumulated toxins or gluey encrustations caused by a poor diet/lifestyle.
