Ground breaking news for dry, scaly winter skin: Check out Vegesorb!

ENVIRONMENTAL factors play havoc on ALL skin types and never more so than during our cold and windy winters. Then, air-conditioning, heaters, electric blankets and a slowing down daily of our water intake compound the problem and we are left with dry, parched and dehydrated skin susceptible to infection and early ageing.

Clever marketing has convinced us that if a product smells and feels good when applied then it must be doing some long term good for our body's protective and largest organ. But skin is a pathway to our internal being and we need to ask ourselves, "WOULD I EAT PETRO-CHEMICALS or would I feel safe consuming this skincare?" The answer for most of us would be, "No."

It is not difficult for skincare manufacturers to disguise an inferior product by the addition of silicones (skin smoothing agents) or emollients (skin softeners) and put a sophisticated price and label on the product. Mineral or paraffin oils are added to creams and sold for cheap prices as moisturisers however these mineral additives are foreign to the skin and hence form a "barrier" on the surface.

BUT NOW there is a skincare product made from VEGETABLE oils that are compatible with ALL skin types, is highly absorbable and highly affordable.

Highly effective (and environmentally responsible), VEGESORB, is readily absorbed into the skin and moisturises from inside out. This restores balance to ALL skins so that naturally occurring lipids provide the ongoing nutrients and lubrication for a glowing and healthy complexion.

Forget "hypoallergenic" in the context of sensitive skin alone and retrain your concept of skincare towards a logical solution of using bio-chemically available vegetable oils for skin and mineral oils for inanimate objects such as motor cars. With only a subtle difference in price, this decision will not be difficult to make.

Take the case of Jenny Williams of Narwee, NSW who uses Vegesorb on her one year old son, Daniel, who is an eczema sufferer (…"extremely sore, rough and red skin…"). "I have now found a skin moisturiser, (after trialling all main brands on the market), to help with his skin condition. Thank you, VEGESORB," his mother writes.

Speaking from a recently conducted AGED CARE SYMPOSIUM in Brisbane, Jan Burguez, Aromatherapist, had this to say about VEGESORB. "This is a revolutionary product, an unsung hero that has everything any body needs in a skincare product. Sensitive, dry, damaged, and injured skin can only benefit from this breakthrough product. Bed sores and decubitis ulcers can be assisted with this product with the addition of prescribed essential oils. My clients in the aged care sector especially have made their own decisions to switch brands and they're sticking with VEGESORB. If people try it, they will buy it This has got what it takes to do the job at hand."

The Eczema Association of Australia Inc also writes, "…we have no hesitation in acknowledging their (VEGESORB AUST. P/L) commitment to the production of quality products."

For daily use as a preventative against environmental factors or for treatment of dry and scaly skin conditions, VEGESORB is Australia's best value moisturiser.

Wholly Australian owned and manufactured VEGESORB is available at selected pharmacies, health food stores and direct by contacting Managing Director, Neale Scott on (07) 3885 2882, or visiting the website: Email for a FACT SHEET to:

Tips for avoiding back pain:with

If you're like most people, you don't give much thought to your back … until it hurts. And when this happens, it's not only painful, but can dramatically affect your daily life.

What we tend to do is place abnormal demands on our backs by our modern lifestyle habits, such as: too much sitting or slouching, too little exercise, carrying too much weight, incorrect lifting or chronic stress.

By following some simple tips you can reduce your risk of injuring your back.


Pain is a warning sign. If what you're doing hurts, then STOP. Do not try to push through the pain.


If you're over-weight you're a candidate for back problems. Try to maintain your proper body weight to avoid straining your back muscles. Eating a balanced diet provides nutrients that fight the deterioration of the bones in the back.


Try to maintain a good posture by not slumping in your chair, hunching up over a work-bench or walking around with rounded shoulders. Instead, imagine there is an invisible electric cord from the top of your head to the ceiling lifting you into a tall, relaxed posture, rather than a short, bent over one.


Exercise REGULARLY to keep the muscles that support your back strong and flexible. Of particular importance are the lower back and abdominal muscles. Consider warming up like an athlete by stretching before you start your working day, and participate in exercise that you enjoy.


Eeezzzee Sleep in a comfortable position. On your side in the 'foetal' position is usually the least stressful on your back. Sleeping on your stomach puts more stress on your back and neck. And choose a firm sleep surface that allows your spine to maintain its natural 'S' curve.


You don't have to lift something heavy in order to hurt your back. Picking up something light incorrectly is far more likely to hurt your back than picking up heavy objects correctly. Lifting things away from your body is also likely to cause damage. When you pick up anything, no matter how heavy, get it close to your body, bend your knees and keep your back as straight as you can and don't twist with it.


When under stress, your back, neck and shoulder muscles are often tight. Then a sudden movement can trigger a muscle spasm.

  • Learn how to relax
  • Take breaks in your day
  • Consider many of the alternative therapies such as massage or yoga.

Researchers tell us that positive thinking individuals will report less back pain, regardless of the amount of perceived stress in the individual's life.

Whether it is taking responsibility for the health of your spine or getting supportive care, you can help create the health that will be with you throughout your lifetime. By choosing a combination of exercise, stress reduction, and healing treatments as you need them; you can promote the best spinal health for yourself.

Green Tea Health Benefits and Weight Loss

Several studies have shown that green tea can lower cholesterol and increases energy expenditure. One recent double-blind study analyzed 3 groups- one with green tea, one with placebo, and one with just caffeine. The green tea group showed a small but statistically significant 4 percent increase in energy expenditure, compared with no change for those taking either placebo or caffeine alone. The scientists surmised that green tea catechins may alter the body's use of norepinephrine, a chemical transmitter in the nervous system, to increase the rate of calorie burning.

Green tea also causes carbohydrates to be released slowly, preventing sharp increases in blood-insulin levels. This promotes the burning of fat. In a study of more than 2000 Japanese men aged 49 to 55, green tea consumption was found to significantly lower serum levels of total cholesterol. The men in the study group drank 10 Japanese-size green tea cups a day (about 4 to 5 western-sized cups). Scientists monitoring this group found that drinking green tea improves the ratio of LDL ('bad") cholesterol to HDL ("good") cholesterol. LDL cholesterol was reduced and HDL cholesterol was increased slightly in the Japanese study.

If you drink green tea you can-

  • Lower cholesterol
  • Increase Thermogenesis (the body's rate of burning calories)
  • Enhance fat oxidation

I want to see something really cheap

After being away on business for a week before Christmas, Tom thought it would be nice to bring his wife a little gift. "How about some perfume?" he asked the cosmetics clerk. She showed him a bottle costing $50. "That's a bit much," said Tom, so she returned with a smaller bottle for $30. "Thats still quite a bit," Tom groused. Growing disgusted, the clerk brought out a tiny $15 bottle. Tom grew agitated, "What I mean," he said, "is I'd like to see something real cheap." So the clerk handed him a mirror
