Melaleuca Wellness Company Advertising Through Facebook – Special Report on Melaleuca



Congratulations for reading this article. By reading this you are completing your due diligence before joining or or venturing into Melaleuca or any home based internet marketing business. You are reading this because you have been approached by someone telling you that they have made 100,000 to 300,000 dollars online with THE HOTTEST opportunity on the web, and most likely they contacted you through Facebook.

After watching a cheesy 12 minute video on how the economy sucks and you will most likely be next to receive the dreaded pink slip and then they tell how you can Change your life; they still don’t mention the name of the company. Big RED flag when researching an opportunity!

Before I join any company I would at least like to know the name within the first minute. After moving to the second video and a few minutes through, the guy nonchalantly mentions the name, Melaleuca. I spent an hour messaging back and forth on Facebook, signing up for a cheesy webinar, on a cheesy web page with cash floating all over just to find out that Melaleuca Wellness company is online and promoting its products. Awesome.

Unfortunately the way I was approached, a personal message through my Facebook account, to check out the latest money making product on the internet was not impressive, personal, or in my opinion a professional way of marketing on Facebook or the internet PERIOD.

Facebook is used to create GENUINE relationships among like minded professionals and friends. After researching the guys who sent me the initial message on Facebook, I found NO information on Melaleuca, and no information on the gentleman personally, (besides a copy & pasted list of highly recommended books to give them a professional look).

After Reviewing the Melaleuca website I do believe that it is a very viable opportunity with products that claim to create and sustain a healthy lifestyle. In no way do I believe Melaleuca is a scam, the wellness company has been in business since 1990. Either way with the company, to create a massive income you will have to pester and bug your family, friends, and neighbors to join and get a solid team built well over the 100s. It’s just the truth.

Facebook is designed to build and endure lasting relationships, not to spam people with information on a wellness company like Melaleuca. Business partnerships derive from Facebook ONLY after two or more people have connected based on a mutual interest for each others PROFILE/PERSONAL information. Then after an initial relationship has been created would one person invite the other to join an opportunity. -Read with suspicion when your new friend on Facebook sends you a “to good to be true offer.”

IF, and I repeat….IF…the gentleman who contacted me had invested some time to get to know me and start a relationship I would be more open to the opportunity with Melaleuca. I am a fitness lover and am dedicated to eating and living healthy, However because I feel a bit violated and pushed into the opportunity based on the marketing strategies, I have been compelled to write this article.

Ultimately if anyone is truly COMMITTED to making a comfortable income from home and “living the dream life” (this takes hard work and dedication) I believe they can with Melaleuca or any other home based business for that matter, but ONLY with proven marketing strategies and tactics used by industry leaders and professionals

Proven marketing methods such as Pay Per Click, SEO and article marketing, and HONEST and TRANSPARENT Socail Media Marketing strategies that are not spammy is the only way to generate endless leads and phone calls from like minded people knocking on YOUR door to join your business, Melaleuca or not.

Overall the marketing strategy that is being used by Melaleuca’s affiliates to send pre-fashioned email messages through Facebook to sign up and watch a cheesy (yes I did say cheesy again) webinar seems a bit tacky. By utilizing the tactics they are suggesting you will ruin your Facebook image and make it more difficult for yourself to create a home based business since Social Media is becoming mainstream in today’s social and economic market.


5 Tips to Help You Buy the Right Perfume




If you have been looking for a good perfume, we suggest that you know some important tips as to how to buy the right product. Actually, what you need to do is do the shopping after taking into consideration different products. Given below are 5 tips that can help you buy the right product the next you go out for shopping.

1. It’s not about the description of the perfume

Here, it’s important to keep in mind that a fragrance consists of tons of ingredients. Therefore, you should not get carried away by a few notes. For instance, you know that you don’t like a certain smell, but it won’t mean that you won’t like all types of fragrances that feature a certain smell. As a matter of fact, the final product may not have that fragrance at all. Therefore, while buying a perfume, don’t just focus on its description.

2. Fragrances And skin types.

The perfume you bought may not produce the same scent on all skin types. You may argue that the skin pH of all of our bodies is the same. But the perfume may emit a different smell. The reason is that you may already have a moisturizer or a body wash on your skin. Before you go ahead and check out the perfume, you may want to review your routine beauty regime. What will this do for you? Well, this will let you know how the perfume will smell on your body on a regular basis.

3. You don’t have to try the perfume on your Wrists

At times, the jewelry on your wrists may change the way the perfume will smell. So, what is the right way to try the product? Well, instead of spraying the product on your wrists, you should spray it on your arms. All you have to do is spray the perfume and then roll down the sleeves. Now, see how the perfume smells throughout the day. This will give you a better idea of the product quality.

4. Blotting papers

If you are going to use blotting papers, make sure you wait until the liquid is dry. After a few minutes, you can smell it. If you allow it to dry, you will be able to smell the real scent. As an alternative, you can put the blotter in your wallet or purse for a while. After a bit, you can check it again. Later, when you open up your wallet, the fragrance should be powerful enough to envelop you.

5. Testing different fragrances

You may want to clear your nose prior to smelling next perfume on the list. What can you do to go about it? Well, all you have to do is smell your shirt or skin. By doing so, you can offset the strong notes that you had earlier giving your senses a bit of time to readjust. Then you can test the next perfume on the list.

So, these are 5 easy tips to help you buy the best perfume on the market.

Invisalign Treatment: Straighten Teeth Without Braces




Even a teenager would agree that having a smile filled with nice straight teeth is a wonderful concept. However, the idea of wearing traditional bracket and wire braces for two years to achieve straight teeth is much harder to get agreement on.

Teens dread wearing braces – and for them it makes awkward moments that are natural for teens to experience, even more awkward.Not only does food get trapped in the brackets and wires, making it very uncomfortable for the wearer, but it can lead to plaque accumulation and increased potential for tooth decay.

For adults working as professionals, traditional braces are even less feasible.

Thankfully, there is a solution to teeth straightening without the wires and brackets! Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, removable aligners that snap into place on the teeth and with slow pressure, move the teeth overtime to the desired place.

Since the aligners are removable, you can continue eating, brushing and flossing your teeth the way you normally do!

Invisalign Process

Look for a dentist who is a Certified Invisalign Provider. The process starts with a consultation in which your Invisalign Certified dentist will determine if you are a good candidate for the treatment. In some complex orthodontic cases traditional braces may still be recommended. If you are a good candidate for Invisalign, your dentist will discuss the process as well as the financial obligation and you’ll be prepared to make your decision.

Getting started with Invisalign

Your Invisalign dentist will begin by taking impressions of your teeth and creating a digital 3-D image of your bite. From these images your dentist can begin to map out a precise treatment plan. From this digital representation, you will be able to see how your teeth will look at each stage of the treatment. Once this is done, it’s time to order your custom-made aligners and get started on the treatment!

What are Invisalign aligners?

The Invisalign lab will construct your custom-made aligners based on your teeth impressions and your individual treatment plan. Unlike metal braces which often irritate the inside of cheeks and gums, Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable to wear BPA-free plastic.

Simply wear the aligners throughout the day and at night while you sleep. You are free to remove the aligners for up to 2 hours per day. So when you eat or brush and floss your teeth – give a speech or are about to say your wedding vows, go ahead and remove the aligners!

By wearing your aligners, your teeth gently and gradually begin to move into a proper straight and healthy position. Best of all, people around you won’t even notice you’re undergoing an orthodontic treatment – since the aligners are virtually invisible.

How often do I need check-ups during Invisalign?

Most people assume that they will have constant dental appointments while doing Invisalign. Nothing could be further from the truth. About every six weeks it is recommended to visit your dentist for a check-up.

How often do I change aligners?

Approximately every two weeks, you will wear a new set of aligners, advancing you to the next stage of your treatment. Unlike traditional braces where you only see the results at the end, you get to see how much closer you are to having the healthier and straighter smile that reflects the smile you’ve dreamed of at every point in the process.

How long is the entire Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign treatments typically last approximately one year for adults. For teens, the length of treatment is similar to that of braces, up to 2 years – but won’t feel as long. Since your teen’s teeth won’t be covered by wires and brackets, progress will be visible much sooner and motivation is built into the process.

Part of the responsibility is up to you. For optimal progress, Invisalign aligners need to be worn for 22 hours per day throughout the entire treatment. Wearing the aligners less than this can delay your success.

The Positive Physical and Psychological Effects of Body Massage




Any massage, be it sports therapy or an ayurvedic spa, effects four systems of a body. Namely,

  1. Physical

  2. Physiological

  3. Neurological

  4. Psychological

All four are connected. The skilled movement of the hands of a masseuse creates the first effect, i.e., physical which in turn triggers the other three. With every stroke, rub, squeeze or compression of the skin the muscles lying below have neurological, functional or psychological change.

The response of the body to a massage therapy depends on the type of motion, i.e., the technique and the time for which it is done. The depth, speed, frequency and the part of the body that is massaged factor in deciding the extent of the benefits, also. First, let’s take a look at the physical reactions to a massage.

What are the physical benefits of a body massage therapy?

The muscles in a body have a lot of flexibility. They can extend and contract to a significant degree. It is the connecting tissue that lies around them that limits the movement. One way to increase the extensibility of connective tissue is through massages. Continuous kneading or wringing can loosen (plus stretch) the tissues that are present near muscles. Additionally, rigorous movements increase blood circulation to the area and heat it which makes the tissue pliable.

When performed regularly, massage can cause:

  • Lengthening of muscle fibres

  • Changes in connective tissue

  • Improve flexibility

These physical changes in the body lead to the following advantages:

  • The range of motion in the joints of a body increase because the muscles are relaxed.
  • Swelling that has happened due to leaking of blood or other fluids from vessels and capillaries can be reduced. The massage stimulates the flow of lymph plus increases the temperature of the soft tissue which causes the reabsorption of the leaked fluid and hence decreases in swelling.
  • Any muscle that is holding tension can be relieved by stroking action of a massage. The motion stimulates the receptors present on nerve ending which can then either result in muscle relaxation or tightening. The effect is reflexive meaning it happens automatically in the muscles because of the massage.

What are the psychological reactions of a massage?

Before diving into the psychological advantages of massage, one thing should be made clear. The biological or physiological outcomes are deeply related with the mental effects of therapy. When the muscles relax, a more peaceful state of the brain is automatically achieved. The vice versa also applies. When the psychological feedback says to let go of the tension in the mind, the muscles in the body relax too.

Some of the psychological compensations that can be achieved through massage are:

  • Pain relief: A massage reduces muscle tension which decreases the pressure on nerve ending which leads to lowered pain. As some of the pain lessens, the perception of it is also altered which further reduces it. The cycle keeps repeating. Therefore, sports therapy is continuously used to manage injuries in athletes and speed up rehabilitation.
  • Anxiety: Physical relaxation of the body and relief from pain consequently leach away the anxiety a body holds.

What are the biological results of spa therapy?

The effects of a Thai massage are not limited to the brain and the physical body. The biological functions within also see positive outcomes. When massages are done with pressure and in-depth, they compress and release blood vessels which increases blood circulation. Even the lymph flow to the heart can be heightened by giving prolonged massages to specific areas of the body. Two techniques by which lymph can be stimulated to flow to body extremities are kneading and deep stroking.

When the blood flow increases in the body, the oxygen available to soft tissues also rises along with the accessibility of nutrients. When lymph flow increases, the body’s capability to remove waste products from the lymphatic system also grows. The flow of blood and lymph is achieved by stimulating the nerves. This results in dilation of blood vessels that leads to more blood circulation, higher temperature, increase in elasticity of muscles, better delivery of oxygen and nutrients.

The last benefit of massage is neurological. By certain motions, a massage therapist can induce reflex actions in the body. These actions have a sedative effect. One such move is rubbing a painful area. The movement stimulated the nerve endings in the location which send the signal to stop the feeling of pain. This happens by blocking the transmission of signals to the spinal cord. In simple terms, a massage decreases pain in the body by affecting the nervous system.

A Succinct Summation

The gist is that massage of diverse kinds can be utilised to reduce pain, take away anxiety, stimulate blood and oxygen flow. It can also be employed to reduce swelling and increase the range of motion. An excellent body therapy can either take you to a relaxed state or make it more active. What the effect of a massage should be is decided by the physical and mental needs of the person.

Warning Signs of Health and How We Age – Adult Health and Wellness




In infancy and childhood, we can be fairly accurate in predicting physical growth and development at different ages and stages. But as we age, there is no uniform timetable. Chronological age is not necessarily a good indicator of how someone will look, feel or function in the world. Studies of Werner Syndrome, premature aging disease, may provide information about the genetic process of normal aging. Werner Syndrome creates many diseases and symptoms that usually occur when people age, including: graying of the hair, skin changes, cataracts, diabetes, vascular disease, osteoporosis, and even cancer.

Aging Theories

o Progammed aging theories are based on the assumption that senescence, or old age, sets in when a predetermined finite number of cell divisions or heart beats have occurred.

o Somatic mutation theory suggests that chromosomal changes occur from genetic and DNA miscoding, translation errors, hydrolysis, irradiation, and spontaneous replication of errors.

o Error catastrophe theory blames defective enzymes for disrupting cellular function and actually causing errors in translating the genetic codes for protein synthesis.

o Free radical theory suggests that oxidation of lipids, proteins, fats, and carbohydrates as well as environmental toxinscause oxygen compounds to form with an extra electron charge, known as a “free radical.”

o Cross linking theory claims that cross linking (which occurs in proteins, DNA, and lipids from exposure to environmental and dietary compounds) actually changes the characteristics of the tissues of body organs, such as collagen and elastin, which then become less pliable and less elastic, resulting in gross changes in the skin, artery walls, the musculoskeletal system, and the lens of the eye.

o Cybernetic theory suggests that the central nervous system accelerates aging due to changes in the endocrine system and the hypothalamus, affecting the rate of production of thyroid hormone, adrenal cortical steroid, and the hormone associated with Parkinson’s disease, dopamine.

o Long term and cross sectional studies do not support any theories that suggest a “normal” or “general” rate of aging of humans. Studies of identical twins have shown large discrepancies in life span. Interestingly though, there seem to be large differences in aging rates between men and women.

Although aging is inevitable, how we look, feel and cope as we get older, is not. Aging affects each of us at different rates and in different ways. Even within the same individual, each organ and organ system ages differently, influenced by genetics, environment, lifestyle, attitudes, social networks, spiritual connections, and overall health and well being. With the right combination of lifestyle ingredients, we can be truly vigorous, healthy, alive and vibrant at any age.

The 12 Warning Signs of Health

In the Spring of 2003, a local newsletter for School Health Personnel printed an article by Karen Armitage, District II Health Office, in which she created the following list (paraphrased) of 12 warning signs of health.

1. Persistence of a supportive network.

2. Chronic positive expectations, tendency to frame events constructively.

3. Episodic peak experiences.

4. Evidence of increasing spiritual growth.

5. Increased awareness of the present moment.

6. Tendency to adapt to changing conditions.

7. Rapid response and recovery when challenged.

8. Increased appetite for physical activity.

9. Tendency to identify and communicate feelings.

10. Repeated episodes of gratitude and joy.

11. Compulsion to contribute to society.

12. Persistent sense of humor.

One Final Warning

If five or more of these indicators are present, you may be at risk for full-blown health.

Is Teeth Straightening Possible Without Braces?




It’s not a secret that a great smile changes how people perceive you. Surely you’ve met someone who looks average. But when he or she smiles, it’s as if the room is a little brighter. Contrary to popular belief, not all people with beautiful smiles have straight teeth. Take a look at Cristin Milioti, for instance, who has less than perfect teeth but is still gorgeous.

If you still want to have your teeth straightened, however, it’s up to you. The procedures involved vary depending on the current state of your teeth. Teeth straightening often involve getting braces, which you have to wear for a long time. Once you’re done with the braces, you’ll wear dental retainers. Simply put, you’ll be wearing wires on your mouth for a while.

Due to the discomfort brought about by braces, many people are looking for alternatives to getting their teeth straightened without them. So is it possible without braces? The short answer is a resounding “NO.” However, you may get away with it depending on how much adjustment your teeth needs.

For instance, if your teeth isn’t straight in a sense that some of them are too long while others are too short, then you can undergo a teeth-contouring treatment. This procedure involves chipping away at longer teeth to maintain a shapelier smile. For shorter teeth, you have two options. Either have them reshaped so they have proper angles that add more to your smile than before or you go with porcelain veneers to lengthen them and giving your teeth some uniformity.

If you need just simple and minor corrections, then you may not need a brace at all. Perhaps it can be fixed with spring retainers. Retainers are removable, but are not as effective as braces. Still, it may get the job done if all you need is a smaller adjustment to have your teeth aligned.

Finally, if you want your teeth straightened without braces and retainers just won’t cut it, then your only other option would be the invisible braces. These function similar to and are as effective as metal braces. The difference is that nobody notices that you are wearing them. Think full dentures that operate like braces. One drawback of this is that it is not uncomfortable, although you may get used to the discomfort quickly. Another disadvantage is that it may cost a little more. However, the fact that it is removable offsets almost any disadvantage.

Do-It-Yourself – Deep Cleaning Your Teeth




You make sure that your family has good dental cleaning habits. You brush twice a day, for at least five minutes in scrupulous circles, zoning in on specific geographic regions of the mouth. You floss with the latest, most technologically advanced dental tape. You even buy your family the newest fad in contoured toothbrushes, just to reach those hard-to-get spaces in between.

Now that you’re listening, a qualified dentist or hygienist should do your dental cleaning, preferably every six months. Professional dental cleaning can be broken down into three main subcategories, namely: scaling, root planning, and polishing.

You do your homework, and you provide your children with calcium-rich foods that are not too high in sugars. You stock the pantry with cereals and grains high in B Vitamins. You make consistently sensible food choices, because you know that any foods that augment muscle and bone growth are generally recommended for teeth and gums.

But, no matter how you slice it, the time will come for you and your children to get a professional dental cleaning. While brushing and flossing alone can remove as much as 70% of the plaque on your teeth, the other 30% lurks in areas that are harder to reach, and semiannual cleanings are the most sensible preventive medicine against easily avoidable oral health problems such as bad breath (halitosis), gingivitis, tartar (calculus) buildup, and tooth decay.

The American Dental Association (ADA) used to recommend that a child get their first dental cleaning at the age of three. But the recent wave of cavities in children entering kindergarten has forced the ADA to redefine their guidelines, and now most dentists recommend an initial visit to the dentist shortly after the eruption of the first teeth, which takes place during the first year.

If a child’s teeth are developing normally, this visit can be put off longer. However, if the tendency toward developing cavities is deemed to be genetic, so if the parents have had a history of cavities, it is better to get the child into a dentist earlier, in order to establish a sensible oral hygiene routine. Also, children whose teeth show staining, crowding, or other abnormalities should go to a dentist before the age of three.

Root planning is basically gum work, the cleaning of pockets to prevent further development of periodontal or gum disease. When gums are inflamed, the pockets tend to become deeper, making it much easier for them to trap plaque deposits, further worsening the condition of the gums. Root planning can sometimes be a painful process requiring local anesthesia.

Polishing is the final step of a good dental cleaning. Prophy jet polishing works but spraying powered water mixed with baking soda on the teeth. The powered water helps remove any excess plaque, and the baking soda neutralizes acidic conditions in the mouth while simultaneously fighting stains. Your dentist is equipped with the knowledge and the technology to optimize your own personal dental hygiene program for maximum success. So, please, every six months, get thee to a dentist!

Facts About Teeth Discoloration




Having a clean, white teeth will not just enhance one’s appearance will also boost one’s confidence. However, your teeth might undergo some discoloration because of several reasons – this will result in a less than stellar smile.

Causes Of Teeth Discoloration

There are some types of food as well as drinks that can stain the teeth. And these will include tea, wine, coffee, and some fruits and vegetables. Other things that can stain your teeth will include smoking and chewing tobacco.

If you are searching for other reason for brushing and flossing your teeth on a regular basis, there are indeed other reasons like plaque and other stain-producing substances that might discolor teeth if left unresolved.

Apart from that, teeth discoloration might also be attributed to other types of diseases that might affect the teeth’s hard surface called the enamel as well as the dentin which is the material beneath the enamel. Moreover, there are some types of treatment such as chemotherapy and head and neck radiation which have been known to cause discoloration.

You must also know that there are some antibiotics that can contribute to this problem when given to young children with developing teeth. Some other medication will also cause such condition – these will include drugs for high blood pressure, antipsychotic drugs, and antihistamine.

As time passes by, the enamel of the teeth might be worn out. With that said, the dentin which has a yellowish color will be exposed. There are people who are genetically predisposed in order to have thinner and duller enamel. In fact, too much fluoride can even lead to teeth discoloration because of the high presence in the environment or perhaps the excessive use of dental products with fluoride.

And lastly, trauma can cause staining or yellowing in teeth in children and in adults.

How To Prevent Teeth Discoloration

First, you can boost your dental hygiene by brushing as well as flossing your teeth. Most importantly, you can improve your dental hygiene by visiting your dentist on a regular basis. Second, consider cutting back on your consumption of cigars or coffee if you are a heavy drinker or a smoker or perhaps consider quitting these entirely. Furthermore, a reliable dentist can provide you with invaluable advice regarding this matter, depending on the cause of the teeth discoloration.

Be reminded that if you want to achieve a brighter smile, there are a couple of options to choose from. These will include veneers, bonding, and teeth whiteners. You must know that these treatments might not be suitable for everyone. For instance, you won’t be screened by a dentist in order to determine if you are a great candidate for this. More information mentioned here.

Rembright Teeth Whitener – Is Rembright a Teeth-Whitening Product That Lives Up to All the Hype?




You’ve no doubt run across a few ads here and there on the Internet recently that claim to have a miracle whitening system that will whiten your teeth magically. Is Rembright a company that can fulfill this hype?

The truth is, none of the products are magic in any way, shape, or form. Even if you go into your dentist’s office and pay an outrageous price for some laser procedures to get rid of yellow teeth, it’s not a miracle cure or anything. Further, even the procedure in the office may or may not work for everyone.

So why pay a huge astronomical cost to have the whitening done by a professional when you can easily do it in your own home. And also, it’s quite simple to obtain a sample trial to test a product and see if it works for your situation.

Rembright is one of the whiteners on the market today that I think is one of the good guys. They use a safe, natural process in a good-tasting gel form that can change your teeth from yellow to an amazing white very quickly, in one day if you wish.

I don’t really recommend you use the product that quickly as it won’t appear natural. Just whiten your teeth little by little until you obtain the shade you want.

So in answer to the original question, I frankly do believe this product lives up to all the hype, and what’s more, a helpful customer service representative is on hand at a toll free number to answer all your questions. I checked it out and you actually can talk to a human rather than a recording. So I’d recommend you give the trial sample a try and see if it’s for you.

Conduct a survey to find out what most employees want to hear about – handling teenagers, tobacco cessation, depression, anxiety etc. and use these sessions to raise awareness.

Discounts to fitness programs. Partner with a fitness club in the neighborhood and offer an employee discount to join the club. Alternatively if you have the space, create an in-house gym with a minimal membership fee. Once both or either program is set up, schedule an informational session that includes a tour of the facility. People are more inclined to take the next step once they have all the information they need to get started.

Go Green. Yes going green does have a positive impact on health, thereby increasing productivity. It also reduces costs by minimizing waste. By going green employees will be less exposed to harmful pollutants that in the long run may have harmful effects on health. You can take steps to get a green environment by monitoring the buildings’ air quality, temperature, lighting, humidity and pollutant concentration to ensure that your employees are both comfortable and risk free. Some other go green steps you can take include recycling plastics, cans, bottles, electronics etc, using green lighting and cleaning products, providing your employees with mugs and eliminating disposables.

Employee participation. Encourage employee participation in company sports teams or leagues. Allow employees to create and lead softball teams or ‘walkercize’ programs for example. Teams such as softball may meet after work for practice and events. ‘Walkercize’ groups could meet at lunchtime for 30-45 minute walk and talk sessions. Projects can be discussed at this time or the time could be used to network with other teams. Walks will also encourage employees to take a much needed break throughout the day. Taking a break from work allows the employee to return refreshed and more focused. Its a win/win.

Charity begins at home. Any company involved within their community encourages employees to give back to their community in one way or another. Employees can walk, run or golf for charities within the community or get involved with charities that focus on health and wellness, there are numerous conditions out there of which employees may not otherwise be aware. Other than the benefit of satisfaction from helping others they also get more knowledgeable about their health and tend to take steps to keep healthy. Such participation would encourage them to focus on prevention a step that decreases absenteeism.

Improved employee health and wellness does increase productivity and morale in the workforce. Think about it.
