THE IMPORTANCE OF GOOD WATER Everybody knows water is essential to our survival. The Earth needs it and we need it. Water is all around us and in us, but still, most take it for granted. When it comes to the biological function of water for humans, its importance is critical. As water makes up more than two-thirds of human body weight, humans would die without it in a few days. Water also plays an important role in the mechanics of the body. In fact, every cell and organ function in our anatomy and physiology depends on water to work efficiently and effectively.
WHY DO WE NEED WATER FILTRATION? Water on the Earth’s surface is substantially more prone to contaminants due to heavy industrial and environmental pollution. People who may be exposed to these inorganic contaminants can become sick or susceptible to liver damage, cancer and other long-term health conditions. Organic contaminants such as bacteria, disease-carrying microorganisms, rotten plants and animal droppings are also likely to affect water sources. We have arguably reached the point where all sources of our drinking water contain some level of contamination.
THESE MAJOR CONTAMINANTS ARE FOUND IN WATER TODAY: Toxic Metals (Lead, Mercury, Copper, etc.) Toxic metals are also called inorganic contaminants. Many toxic metals have been linked to long-term health problems such as cancer and serious learning disabilities. Microbiological (E. Coli, Enterobacter, Klebsiella, Citrobacter, etc.) Biological contaminants are living organisms such as parasites, bacteria, viruses, cysts, and spores. Petrochemicals (Herbicides, Pesticides, Detergents, VOCs, Carcinogens, etc.) Petroleum-based chemicals are also called ‘organic’ contaminants. Many have been linked to long-term health problems including many forms of cancer. Most have unknown long-term health effects. With knowledge thus comes choice. A good filtration system installed in your home is an important way to ensure the quality and safety of your drinking water. And although household water filtration technology is now prevalent, many people remain unaware of the various filtration methods available. The first thing to keep in mind is that total filtration cannot be achieved through any single stage of filtration. Only a good complete system can produce high-quality, safe drinking water.
PRODUCT PORTFOLIO | 11
CHOOSING THE RIGHT WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM There are a number of filtration products that employ various filtration methods such as the Reverse Osmosis (RO) and Ultraviolet (UV) systems. However, Ultrafiltration (UF) based systems such as HomePure water filters are ideally suited to household needs and has a number of key advantages over RO or UV filtration. The core UF filter in a HomePure filter cartridge produces naturally balanced water by allowing trace minerals to pass through while ensuring contaminants are filtered out. A HomePure filter will absorb and remove 97% of chlorine; 99% of turbidity; 99% of the total 46 types of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) such as atrazine, carbofuran, lindane, simazine and toluene; as well as heavy metals (Hg, Pb, Cr, Fe, Al, Cu), herbicides, pesticides and trihalomethanes. HomePure’s reduction of heavy metals was evaluated and supported by independent laboratory KEWWI (Korea).
COMPARING WATER FILTRATION SYSTEMS Ultrafiltration (UF)
Reverse Osmosis (RO)
• Maximum reduction. • Breakdown of the membrane is possible.
• Medium reduction. • Bacteria can hide behind sediments or may only be paralysed.
Possibility of recontamination
YES (water around the UV lamp)
Need for a pump
Need for electricity
Reduction of bacteria
HomePure water filters must only be used with a treated metropolitan water supply. The water supply must not be hotter than 35oC. For low quality water supplies, the HomePure Prefilter is recommended to extend the life of the HomePure Filter Cartridge.

REVOLUTIONARY CERAMIC BALL TECHNOLOGY Water is passed through thousands of tiny balls manufactured from ceramic materials that have a special formation and abundant inorganic minerals. The technology allows water to be gently treated and cleansed in selective ways. The HomePure 7-Stage Water Filtration System includes three stages of ceramic ball filtration. • Activated carbon ceramic balls. • Tourmaline ceramic balls. • Pi-Water ceramic balls.
• HomePure 7-Stage Water Filtration System • HomePure 7 in 1 Replacement Filter Cartridge • HomePure 7 in 1 Replacement Filter Cartridge Duo Pack
The HomePure 7-Stage Water Filtration System is our original high-quality water filter utilising advanced water filtration and treatment technologies to deliver water that is not only clean and great-tasting but also healthy.
7-STAGE FILTRATION SYSTEM Unlike most RO or UV water filters, HomePure is a mechanical filter system that does not need electricity, thus providing clean water at minimal cost. The 7-stage filtration system means seven filter stages are combined into one single filter cartridge.
EASY INSTALLATION AND FILTER CARTRIDGE REPLACEMENT It takes just seconds to install HomePure without the need for professional tools or plumbing. The filter cartridge is also easy to change and the smart LED indicator will signal when the cartridge has filtered the maximum amount of water (4,320 litres) or after 12 months of use, whichever comes first.
USER-FRIENDLY DESIGN The HomePure 7-Stage Water Filtration System is a versatile appliance for the family kitchen. Its stainless steel flexible pipe supplies water around a wide radius without needing to move your water filter. A specially designed one-way nozzle also prevents bacteria and dust from entering the filter.
WORLD-CLASS QUALITY Combining German engineering, Japanese technology, and South Korean manufacturing, the HomePure 7-Stage Water Filtration System is also NSF Certified, the independent global standard for water treatment devices and products.

WHAT IS PI-WATER? Well known in Japan, Pi-Water is very similar to the ‘living’ water inside our bodies. It can be found in all living things, including humans, animals and plants, and is believed to support health and well-being by supporting a wide range of functions in the body. Pi-water was discovered in 1964 by Dr Akihiro Yamashita during his study of botanical physiology. Dr Yamashita was trying to establish if hormone-like molecules were responsible for triggering flowering in plants, a phenomenon he and fellow scholars named Florigen. He later found that the change from a bud to a flower is caused by ‘living water’ which contains a very small amount of Ferric Ferrous Salt (Fe2Fe3), the key element controlling various functions in living things. After many studies and extensive research, Dr Yamashita succeeded in creating living water with special properties that helped plants thrive well beyond normal expectations. He named this ‘Pi-water’. One of the filtration stages of the HomePure 7-Stage Water Filtration system passes water through special ceramic balls which add just the right amount Fe2Fe3. This suppresses free radicals and makes your water Pi-water. This claim has not been evaluated by NSF International, and is not supported by the NSF Certification of this product/component.
Since 1944, NSF International, The Public Health and Safety Company™, is an independent, non-profit organisation committed to making the world a safer place for consumers by certifying products and writing standards for food, water and consumer goods.

1. Sediment Filter Made of PE net and two-layered non-woven fabric material, the prefilter effectively filters out suspended solids such as rust residues, mud, and sand larger than 5 microns (5/1000 mm).
7. Antibacterial Silver-Lite Stone
2. Activated Carbon Block Filter
Made of inorganic compound materials, the antibacterial Silver-lite stone is effective in preventing bacteria and algae growth due to its Silver ions (Ag+) that move throughout the filter. Hence, the remaining water in the filter does not become contaminated and bacteria are prevented from re-entering the filter.
The HomePure carbon block filter with developed technology provides greater chemical absorption and mechanical filtration. The HomePure activated carbon block also comprises a larger filter surface area, which is more efficient than a Granulated Activated Carbon (GAC) filter, thus providing better absorption of contaminants.
6. Ultrafiltration Hollow Fibre Membrane
The activated carbon ceramic balls are made as special coating balls at a low-temperature process under very technical and delicate methods to keep all the benefits functioning inside. The balls are responsible for improving the taste of your water, promoting excellent absorption and deodorisation.
3. Activated Carbon Ceramic Balls
The size of the smallest bacteria is 0.2 to 0.3 microns (a hair size is around 70-140 microns); the HomePure Ultrafiltration (UF) membrane ensures the reduction of bacteria and microscopic impurities due to its hollow fibre membrane having a pore size ranging from 0.01 to 0.1 microns. However, the UF membrane allows the passing through of beneficial water minerals.
5. Tourmaline Ceramic Balls 4. Pi-water Ceramic Balls from Japan The Pi-water ceramic neutralises the adverse effects of active oxygen, preventing the action of hazardous ions, and controlling the oxidation reduction reaction. This claim has not been evaluated by NSF International, and is not supported by the NSF Certification of this product/component
The tourmaline ceramic balls reduce water clustering and have antibacterial and deodorising qualities that improve water filtration. They help give water a good taste and are a good source of mineral microelements that are beneficial for wellness.

THE ETERNAL SEARCH FOR BALANCE Your body is constantly looking for it, sometimes going to great lengths to achieve it. The consequences of an imbalanced system, especially regarding its internal acidity, can be devastating.
ACIDITY: AN UNKNOWN FOE The body is very sensitive to its pH level. If your body’s pH level becomes too acidic (pH below 7.35), proteins are denatured and digested, enzymes lose their ability to function, osmosis stops and even cell death may occur. Low energy, fatigue, excess weight, poor digestion, aches and pains can be a consequence of high blood acidity. To stay balanced, the body must alkalise through minerals such as calcium, potassium and magnesium, ‘stealing’ them from vital organs and bones. Making sure you keep a balanced internal pH is essential for your well-being.
Because 70% of your body weight is water, increasing the pH level of your drinking water could prove very beneficial to help your body find, and keep, healthy acidity levels.
ALKALISE YOUR BODY WITH HOMEPURE Inside HomePure Alkaline Stick and Alkaline Jug are thousands of ceramic balls, tested and approved by NSF International for their alkalising properties. These ceramic balls react with the molecular structure of fresh water, creating an abundance of negative ions that counterbalance the body’s acidity levels.
KEY BENEFITS • • • • • • • •
Antioxidant properties help prevent ageing. Improves the quality of water at a molecular level, making hydration, the elimination of toxins and body waste, and the absorption of vitamins and minerals more efficient. Transforms the shape of water molecules into ‘microclusters’ that hydrate your body three times faster. Supplies minerals that boost metabolism. Stabilises and protects cells, increasing the body’s defence from bad bacteria. Improves the taste of water. Approved by the NSF and certified by the FDA. Alkaline Jug: BPA free (certified by SGS Korea).

HOW ACIDIC ARE YOU? Most modern lifestyles are acidic. There are a lot of factors that contribute to high acidity levels, such as lack of exercise, stress, pollution and even our emotions. But mostly, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we eat and drink that has the biggest impact.
Foods with a high base content include lemons, papaya, asparagus, watermelon, and parsley.
Foods that have a medium base level include apples, avocados, peaches and figs.
Foods that have a low base content include almonds, honey, mushrooms and olive oil.
Water (fresh spring water, filtered water)
Some foods are alkalising whilst others have acidifying properties. Check the diagram below to assess how acidic your lifestyle is:
Foods that have a low acid content include dairy products and vegetable oils. These are also highly basic on the pH scale.
Foods that have a medium acid content include bananas, eggs, nuts, oats, whole wheat bread and potatoes.
Sugar, beef, white flour products and black tea are all highly acidic foods. Soft drinks, especially the carbonated type are also strongly acidic.

THE EFFECTS OF UNCLEAN AIR.
HOW SAFE IS THE AIR IN YOUR HOME?
A major part of how healthy we are comes from how clean the air we breathe really is. Fumes from factories and automobile exhaust, and tons of other harmful gases are all around us. Now, consider this: most of our airborne toxins are inhaled while we’re inside because we spend most of our lives indoors. Whether it’s in offices, homes, schools or restaurants, it’s important to be aware of what’s in that air you breathe most often.
Indoor air quality is a growing concern as modern homes are built to be airtight for energy efficiency. When ventilation is restricted, indoor air quality deteriorates. Bad air can trigger coughing, nasal and chest congestion, sore throat, watery or itchy eyes, shortness of breath and asthma attacks.
Unclean air can cause respiratory problems, infections, bronchitis, pneumonia and viral infections, as well as irritation to the eyes, nose and throat. Other symptoms can include the reoccurrence of headaches, nausea, allergic reactions and serious long-term ailments. Sadly, the ones who suffer the most from unclean air are children. Respiratory problems in children are on the rise. On average, one out of every 10 school-age children have asthma and each year, 10.5 million school days are missed due to respiratory-related illnesses.
Smart lifestyle choices must go beyond diet and exercise, and extend even to the air we breathe. No matter how much we clean our homes with ordinary devices, we cannot rid the air completely of allergens and other airborne irritants that are trapped in carpets, curtains, furniture and upholstery.

YOUR NATURAL BODYGUARD Without a sufficiently performing immune system, your body is vulnerable to any sickness, disease or illness that comes its way. But while your immune system is busy protecting your body, what is protecting your immune system?
COMPARISONS WITH ANTIOXIDANT SUPPLEMENTS & FRUITS Oxygen Radical Capacity (ORAC) µmol TE/gram Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) 2,100 Green Tea Extract 5,937

ANTIOXIDANTS AND THE FIGHT AGAINST FREE RADICALS Free radicals are molecules that have lost one of their electrons, therefore rendering them unbalanced and highly reactive. These free radicals then cause damage to our bodies, called oxidative damage. On top of this, poor diet, excessive exposure to the sun, pollution and substances such as alcohol and cigarettes also create free radicals that further damage cells. Antioxidants prevent or slow the oxidative damage to our body and also repair cell damage. They also help prevent the signs of ageing by reducing cell degradation and by assisting in the prevention of a number of degenerative diseases. Olive leaf extract has almost double the power of Green Tea Extract and Grape Seed Extract, which are both well known as popular sources of antioxidants. Further, fruits that are generally associated with being high in antioxidants, such as cranberry and raspberry, contain only a minute fraction of antioxidant power when compared to olive leaf extracts.
Wild Blueberry Fruit 93 Cranberry Fruit 95
Hydrophylic Assay-ORAC µmol TE/gram (dry weight)
POLYPHENOLIC ANTIOXIDANTS AND FLAVONOIDS Olive leaf extract contains a broad spectrum of polyphenolic antioxidants, which have very strong free radical fighting properties. The main phenol in olive leaf extract, oleuropein, has been found to strengthen the immune system, and research shows it has a positive hypotensive effect in vivo (in body) and displays strong antioxidant activity. Combined with the many phenols in olive leaf extract are flavonoids, the most active being the antioxidant-strong rutin, catechin and luteolin.
PRODUCT PORTFOLIO | 29
Among the many phenols found in olive leaf extract is hydroxytyrosol, which is a catechol derivative of oleuropein. Both oleuropein and hydroxytyrosol are powerful antimicrobial agents against a variety of viruses, bacteria, yeasts and fungi. Hydroxytyrosol in particular is known for its wide spectrum of antimicrobial effects.
Adult: 1 teaspoon (5 ml) 2 to 3 times a day with meals. Child: ½ teaspoon (2.5 ml) 2 to 3 times a day with meals.

WHY SHOULD I TAKE INOCEAN? • InOcean contains the highest number of minerals and trace elements (96) and is available in ionic form, which is more easily absorbed by our body. • InOcean changes water in our body to an alkaline base, which helps maintain pH levels. • InOcean is a great source of magnesium, which is a vital mineral acting as a catalyst in breaking down fats and proteins; metabolising sugar; regulating heart rhythm; supporting a healthy immune system; building strong bones; and maintaining healthy blood pressure levels. • InOcean strengthens and enhances the immune system and general well-being. • InOcean is the only mineral complex to provide minerals from the ocean.
KEY BENEFITS InOcean changes water in our body to an alkaline base, resulting in pH-balanced water. This helps to maintain a healthy pH level in the body. The mineral complex in InOcean is known to:
• InOcean Single Pack • InOcean Triple Pack (3 x 50 ml)
• Fight signs of ageing. • Balance the pH level of the body by changing water to an alkaline base. • Enhance immune system. • Promote healthy skin. • Improve brain activity.
SUGGESTED APPLICATIONS WHAT IS INOCEAN? InOcean is a mineral complex designed to ensure the body’s daily mineral needs are met. 100% natural and made from concentrated sea water, InOcean contains 96 macro and trace minerals, derived by natural processes from the ocean.
WHY ARE MINERALS IMPORTANT? Minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium and sodium are important because they create a healthy environment inside the body, in which vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates and fats we consume can effectively work to grow, function and heal cells. For example, minerals can help neutralise excess acids in blood as result of a high acid diet (which includes meat, dairy, eggs, wheat and refined and chemically preserved food). Because the body’s existing minerals are also being used for this same process, often there aren’t enough minerals available for other processes, which is why mineral complexes such as InOcean are vital.
The recommended amount of InOcean for adults is 15 to 20 drops per 1 litre of water daily and for children, 5 to 10 drops per 1 litre of water daily. Simply dilute InOcean with water or any beverage and drink as normal. You can have it all at one go or split the recommended daily dose into multiple intakes throughout the day.

WHAT IS GLUTATHIONE? Glutathione (GSH), also known as the ‘the master antioxidant’, is one of the most crucial antioxidants in the body. GSH is actually a protein molecule composed of three amino acids: cysteine, glutamine and glycine – called GSH precursors. GSH is produced naturally within the body and is present in each and every cell in the body; yes, all 300 trillion cells!
WHY DO WE NEED GLUTATHIONE? It is the only antioxidant that resides within the cell, giving it a unique edge in protecting your health by naturally combating the negative impacts of the outside world.
PRODUCT PORTFOLIO | 35
GSH – MASTER ANTIOXIDANT, MASTER IMMUNE BOOSTER, MASTER DETOXIFIER Antioxidant and free radical destroyer GSH plays a central protective role against the damaging effects of bacteria, viruses, pollutants and free radicals. While the other antioxidants work only at a certain part of our body, GSH is needed in every part. Regulator of other antioxidants Without GSH, other important antioxidants such as Vitamins C and E cannot adequately do their job to protect your body against disease because GSH allows the immune cells to do their work of fighting off viruses and bacteria. Enhancing the immune system Your body’s immune system requires maintenance of normal levels of GSH inside the white blood cells. GSH removes free radicals; prevents bacteria infections; removes toxins and heavy metals from our body. A detoxifying agent Another major function of GSH is in the detoxification of the body of carcinogens and harmful substances. Add those extra years to your life Many researchers believe that ageing-related diseases like heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, cancer and other dreaded diseases are caused by cellular damage from free radicals. One of the possible ways to prevent these diseases is to make sure that GSH level is high; this ensures that free radicals are mopped up before they cause harm to the cells, the organs and eventually our health. GSH improves the condition of skin, hair and nails GSH helps improve skin conditions like acne, dry and itchy skin and wrinkles.
WHAT CAN A LOW GLUTATHIONE LEVEL LEAD TO? There are at least 98 diseases caused by GSH deficiency. Modern lifestyle – long working days, unhealthy eating habits and lack of exercise – can all reduce the ability of your cells to produce GSH. Reduced levels of necessary GSH in the body exposes you to continuous attacks on your cells. As a result, cells are damaged and lose their optimal function; the ageing process accelerates; energy levels fall; inflammation levels increase. When that happens, your cells, tissues, and organs will feel the negative impact.
GOOD HEALTH STARTS WITH EDG3 EDG3 is a mixed berry flavoured powder supplement with the same GSH precursor Amino Acids: Glycine, Cysteine and Glutamine. GSH can be best used by your body when it is naturally produced in the body’s cells. By providing the necessary precursor Amino Acids, EDG3 gives your body the key it needs to produce GSH for optimum use. L-Cysteine is the most important part of the body’s GSH synthesis process whereby its main function is to increase GSH levels in our body. With EDG3’s additional supplementation of L-Cysteine, it enables your body to produce even more Glutathione.
WHO SHOULD USE EDG3? EDG3 is most suitable for adult’s ages 20 and above or those who have low levels of GSH that predispose them to diseases associated with ageing.
SUGGESTED USE Adults: 1 sachet daily. Mix EDG3 in 120 ml water, stir well and consume immediately. Children: 6 to 12 years of age: 1/2 sachet daily. Mix EDG3 in 120 ml water, stir well and consume immediately.
Children below 6 years of age: Please consult with your child’s pediatrician for specific recommendations.
Why is EDG3 different to other GSH products? EDG3 contains precursors and not GSH. A precursor is a substance that helps the body form another substance. So, consuming GSH precursors through EDG3, means that they will help your body produce GSH naturally for optimum use.
The way out: The simplest way to increase GSH levels in your body is by taking a sachet of EDG3 daily for optimum health. EDG3 is the most advanced GSH support you can find in the market today and it provides the right support your body needs.

• Amezcua Bio Disc 2 • Amezcua Bio Disc 2 Family Pack
When the Amezcua Bio Disc was introduced to the world in 2006, it heralded a revolution in the way we were able to redefine and harmonise the energy of water, greatly maximising its positive effect on the human body. Over the years that followed, numerous independent scientific tests verified the Bio Disc’s ability to positively harmonise energy, while millions of satisfied customers from all over the world shared their own anecdotal evidence of the benefits of this innovative energy enhancer. Today, representing the next level of wellness and the evolution of the world-renowned Bio Disc, the Amezcua Bio Disc 2 redefines the way in which we can harness and harmonise the energy of our drinking water.
BETTER Seven wave-form rings The Amezcua Bio Disc 2 has a greatly enhanced energy field, attributed to the seven wave-form rings on the disc’s surface. The seven ribbed rings speed up the biomolecular structure process of liquids poured over the disc, improving the biocompatibility of water molecules with your body. The liquids are energised faster and more efficiently via the wave-form produced by the rings.
STRONGER Heat and impact resistance The Amezcua Bio Disc 2 has a higher resistance to heat and impact, which allows it to retain all its properties even after prolonged exposure to unfavourable environmental conditions. The durability and usability have been greatly enhanced from that of its predecessor.

Bio Disc shield
Each Amezcua Bio Disc 2 comes with a high-quality silicone rubber shield to protect it during everyday use. Combined with the disc’s enhanced durability and impact resistance, this Amezcua accessory reduces the risk of potential breakages or damage without affecting the energy properties of the disc.
It is common sense that drinking water is vital. However, there is a way to enhance normal drinking water and improve the biocompatibility of water molecules with your body. Enhancing water’s biocompatibility means that you get more out of every sip while quenching your thirst. There is also a way for your drinking water to increase your energy and harmony levels at the same time. How? By drinking water that has been energised and enhanced by the Amezcua Bio Disc 2.
EASIER Flat-base design A new fusion moulding process creates a user-friendly, flat-base design in the Amezcua Bio Disc 2, making it a reliable and stable base for your beverage containers. Such an improvement to the disc’s functional design means that your drinks – whether in a container, glass, cup, bottle or even a jar – are able to stand on the disc more steadily than before. The next level of wellness The Amezcua Bio Disc 2 has been designed to further improve, balance and harmonise the energy of the human body through natural concepts created from a high-technology process.
HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE? The Amezcua Bio Disc 2 is made of technically engineered natural minerals that have been structurally bonded in glass at a molecular level using high-heat fusion methods. Through this combination of minerals and fusion techniques, a positive energy field is created, which allows the Amezcua Bio Disc 2 to transfer its energy field to water and the human body, as has been certified through various testing and evaluation processes. Similar to the original Bio Disc but stronger in energy field, it is this transfer of energy that brings out the best in your water.
Tests conducted at the Holistic Competence Center by Dr med. Manfred Doepp have shown that the Amezcua Bio Disc 2 is even more effective than the original Amezcua Bio Disc.
Amezcua Bio Disc 2 makes your water more hydratious, harmonises your energy levels, and generally increases the advantages of drinking H20. The process is simple and will seamlessly integrate into your usual routine; just place your drink on the disc, or place the disc on top of your drink, and then consume your water as normal. Think of it as either a drink coaster, or a lid for your water container. Either way, it works to energise and revitalise your water, and consequently, your body. Various renowned institutions throughout the world have evaluated the properties and abilities of the Amezcua Bio Discs.* + Among the evaluations and certifications is the verdict that the Amezcua Bio Discs can reduce water surface tension value. This, makes water more hydratious, which improves the biocompatibility of water molecules with the body’s cells. Basically, this means your body can absorb more of what it needs from your drinking water. Water treated with Amezcua Bio Discs also produces beautiful and perfectly shaped water crystals, an indication of water with high energy levels and good quality. The good water crystals pass through body cell walls easier, enabling the body to deliver and absorb nutrients and minerals into its cells quickly. Further tests have indicated that the disc has a ‘profound positive effect on a person’s energy level’. * Tests conducted on some properties of the original Amezcua Bio Disc also apply to the efficacy of the Amezcua Bio Disc 2, as the two products share the same tested manufacturing qualities. + Tests conducted on the Amezcua Bio Disc 2 have shown a higher efficacy and effectiveness than results of the same tests conducted on the original Amezcua Bio Disc.

• Amezcua Bio Light 2
It is well known that plants use energy from sunlight to make food in the process of photosynthesis, but plants are not the only living things that have a complex relationship with, and need for, light. If a human being is deprived of light, growth and biological functions are rendered impossible. The smallest physical units of light, biophotons, are stored in, and used by, all biological organisms – including your body. The research on the purpose of these biophotons is proving more and more important in modern science, and they may very well be in control of virtually every biochemical reaction that occurs in your body – including supporting your body’s ability to function. Photons – the concept of basic units of light developed by Albert Einstein – and their interaction within and on biological systems is a long established field of scientific study.

THE CHAKRAS AND YOUR BODY The chakras in your body is a system of seven energy centres located along the spine, from the perineum to the crown of your head. These seven energy points are your body’s energy ecosystem, associated with multiple physiological functions. Every chakra is visualised through a flower with a different number of petals and a different colour, and is often associated with a sound, also known as mantra.
YOUR ENERGY, ALIGNED The Amezcua Chakra Plus’ unique 7-ring-design forms 12 petals of a lotus, detailing all the goodness of this mystical flower. The rings align the seven chakras in your body, helping you think clearly, communicate better, stay focussed and live life to the fullest. The triangle in the centre of the disc, also called the Golden Triangle, represents the Heart Chakra and helps the body recuperate, enhancing your vitality and energy.
ALIGNING YOUR CHAKRAS Keeping the chakras aligned, unblocked and ultimately ‘healthy’ is essential in order to keep our spiritual, mental, emotional and physical balance. When our energy is leaking, weak, frozen or blocked, our whole being is affected. We feel physically worn-out, heavy, stuck and it is more difficult to manage emotions, think clearly and find solutions. Can we achieve a healthy energy system even when we can’t dedicate ourselves to yoga and meditation as often as we need it? • Amezcua Chakra Plus • Amezcua Chakra Plus Family Pack
BODY, MIND AND ENERGY Modern medicine’s approach to health is almost exclusively focussed on the physical body. But those looking to really stay healthy know that taking good care of the physical body is not enough. To maintain and improve our overall health and well-being, we must also consider the mind and energy systems. The energy system flows in pathways or meridians, as blood flows in veins and thoughts in synapses. It travels across our body, sending what is called prana or vital-energy force to all parts of our body. Throughout these energy meridians, there are certain points (like organs in the physical body) that control the flow of energy and the energy levels in specific areas of our body. They’re called chakras, a Sanskrit word that can be translated as vortex or wheels.
INTRODUCING AMEZCUA CHAKRA PLUS The key to your wellness lies in the energy within and around you. Made of specially engineered glass, the Amezcua Chakra Plus is a natural energy-generating device that is further enhanced from the original Amezcua Chakra to harness natural energy; the Amezcua Chakra Plus is an energy generator and harmonious resonator that revitalises your body’s energy system. The Amezcua Chakra Plus is enhanced to emit energies that boost and balance your body’s own bioenergy so you can naturally achieve and maintain optimum well-being. To make the Amezcua Chakra Plus, 13 minerals are fused and structurally bonded together at the molecular level. This technologically advanced bonding process produces a long-lasting natural resonance that is at the same frequency as your body’s electrical currents and can be transferred to your body’s energy flow. With the Amezua Chakra Plus, you will get the extra protection you need against modern day stressors.

LIVING IN A HARMFUL FREQUENCY JUNGLE Today, most of us can hardly imagine a normal day without a mobile phone, a computer or television. According to a study released by the Council for Research Excellence, the average adult usually spends at least 8.5 hours a day in front of screens, including computers and televisions, which both produce a number of static electric fields and alternating electric and magnetic fields at various frequencies. In many countries, over half the population use mobile phones and the market is growing rapidly. CCS Insight, a major market research and analysis body focussing on mobile and wireless sectors, reports that more than 10 billion mobile phones have been sold globally since 1994, including five billion mobile subscriptions since the start of 2011. The unavoidable transmission masts and towers can already be found everywhere and the concern whether mobile phone radiation is dangerous to humans is no longer a myth. These convenient and useful devices have fully integrated into our lives, where they definitely have their rightful place. Yet, there are also problems involved with their usage.
THE INVISIBLE DANGER OF ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD RADIATION
• Amezcua E-Guard (7 chips) • Amezcua E-Guard Duo Pack (2 x 7 chips)
The Amezcua E-Guard is a unique wellness solution that provides protection for your body from the harmful effects of electrosmog exposure from mobile phones, computers, laptops, and televisions. Take them wherever you go by discreetly attaching them to your electronic devices. The Amezcua E-Guard will not only help those affected by electro-sensitivities, but also act as a preventative measure for your future protection. Radiation consists of travelling energy in the form of waves or particles. It occurs naturally all around us and can be harmless in small doses, although different types of radiation such as e-smog (electromagnetic radiation) can have adverse effects. Amezcua E-Guard is a proven, functional and effective product that helps absorb problematic radiation frequencies, transforming them into frequencies that are more compatible and safer to your body. Additionally, the Amezcua E-Guard has an energetic value that subtly transmits positive information into your body, further supporting your well-being.
Electromagnetic fields (EMF) of all frequencies represent one of the most common and fastest-growing environmental influences, about which anxiety and speculation are spreading. They are present everywhere in our environment but are invisible to the human eye and their effects are much worse than you think. All populations are now exposed to varying degrees of EMF, and the levels continue to increase as technology advances. Numerous scientific studies and experiments show that there are growing numbers of people who are sensitive to the electromagnetic field frequencies emitted by mobile radio antennae, mobile phones, computers and television sets. Exposure to a consistent external frequency for more than a few minutes can cause our body’s electrical functionality to be disrupted. It interferes with the body’s natural healing process. The sensitive reactions display a variety of symptoms*, such as insomnia, difficulty in concentrating, anxiety, irritability, headaches, dizziness and similar responses. * The indicated symptoms may vary and may not be a direct result of exposure to electromagnetic fields.
PRODUCT PORTFOLIO | 47
KEY BENEFITS* • Protect yourself from the negative effects caused by electromagnetic radiation (e-smog). • Activate and support your body’s natural defences and energy systems. • Feel more focussed and more energised. • Receive positive informational effects and energy increase everytime your Amezcua E-Guard comes into contact with your skin. * As confirmed by Dr med. Manfred Doepp of the Holistic Center of Energy Medicine, Germany.
SPECIFICATIONS • Description: Aluminium Chip with Laser Engravings Seven (7) E-Guards per pack • Diameter: 25 mm
PROTECT YOURSELF. BALANCE YOUR ENERGY. REDUCE YOUR STRESS. Amidst the dynamics of the modern world, maintaining a healthy body requires a lot of time and attention. Taking reasonable precautions is an important dayto-day thought for us all. The Amezcua E-Guard acts as assistance to those already affected by harmful e-smog as well as provides a preventative measure for vital protection to the body. Combining two pioneering technologies in one single chip, the Amezcua E-Guard works well with the characteristics of quartz minerals that help absorb various radiation patterns transforming these into frequencies that are more compatible with biological systems. An energetic value is additionally integrated into the Amezcua E-Guard to subtly transmit positive information maintaining the well-being of your body. With its easy-to-use design, attaching the Amezcua E-Guard to your everyday electronic devices allows you to take preventative action by engaging, activating and supporting your own body’s natural defenses and energy systems. Your protection goes wherever you go!
THE COMBINATION OF TWO PIONEERING ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES Human Firewall Technology uses quartz to absorb harmful frequencies and then the frequencies emit back in a neutralised wave form. Energetic Programming helps enhance the overall effect by having modelled the Amezcua E-Guard with information containing an energy value that promotes your well-being.
SUGGESTED APPLICATIONS • There are seven Amezcua E-Guards in total in every pack. Due to the varying radiation emissions of different electronic devices, it is recommended to use:
One (1) E-Guard for a mobile phone
Two (2) E-Guards for computers, laptops or tablets
Four (4) E-Guards for televisions (small)
• Clean and dry the surface of your device before attaching the Amezcua E-Guard(s)
• Peel off the backing of the adhesive sticker and attach the Amezcua E-Guard to your mobile phone, computer, laptop or tablet or television set. The Amezcua E-Guard stays effective for a long period of time: • Mobile phone (1 chip): 2-3 years. • Computer or laptop (2 chips): 3-4 years. • Television set (4 chips): 5-6 years.

WHAT CAUSES AGEING SKIN? Everyone wants to look younger than his or her age. However, your skin is abused each day by poor environment and an unhealthy lifestyle. Do any of the following factors apply to you?
Living in a big city surrounded by pollution.
Exposure to UV radiation (e.g. walking along the
street, doing outdoor activities, etc.). Drinking alcohol. Lack of sleep.
Lack of exercise.
Suffering from stress.
If so, you are unfortunately speeding up your ageing process, which results in fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, dark spots, and much more. Now, it’s time to help your skin learn how to fight against ageing!
USING THE CONCEPT OF PHYSIOLOGY The human body has the tremendous ability to self-regulate, self-regenerate and self-repair. Physio Radiance relies entirely on a deep understanding of skin physiology. Instead of feeding your skin with short-lived and potentially toxic chemicals that often have devastating long-term effects on the body, Physio Radiance products instead utilise the body’s own functions, in order to stimulate the natural rejuvenation of the skin.
SAY ‘NO’ TO TOXIC INGREDIENTS! Absolutely paraben- and preservative-free, Physio Radiance is the only high-end, hypoallergenic, unisex skin care range that helps your skin self-regulate, self-regenerate and self-repair at a cellular level. By utilising the world’s smallest antioxidant, its patented technology gives back the original characteristics of youthful skin cells that have been lost due to ageing.
“Preservatives are used in skin care products to protect ingredients from spoiling. But nowadays we know that some preservatives can be harmful to our health. This is obvious in the case of parabens, which may lead to some kinds of cancer and allergic conditions. So it’s essential to include hypoallergenic ingredients in cosmetics to lower the possibility of an allergic or adverse reaction.” − Philippe Humbert, MD, PhD
HYPOALLERGENIC SKIN CARE FOR SENSITIVE SKIN Does your skin care product contain these ingredients? • Parabens. • Mineral Oil, Paraffin, and Petrolatum. • Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS) or Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate (SLES). • Benzyl Alcohol. These ingredients are part of a list of potentially dangerous chemicals that can be found in most skin care products. These chemicals can cause toxic and allergic reactions such as skin rashes, headaches, dizziness and/or respiratory problems. In addition, parabens are widely used as preservatives in over 13,200 skin care products. There have been numerous studies that have identified the connection between parabens and cancer. A number of hypoallergenic skin care products are available in the market to lower the possibility of an allergic or adverse reaction. Regulations list 26 official allergens that all hypoallergenic products sold in the market must not possess, in order to qualify as being hypoallergenic. However, the hypoallergenic quality of Physio Radiance goes above and beyond this standard list, as it blacklists more than 80 harmful ingredients that are known to be allergens or toxic. When formulating Physio Radiance, our aim is to develop an evolving list of ingredients used in our products to ensure the health and well-being of all our customers, no matter their skin sensitivities.

ANTI-AGEING REDEFINED Physio Radiance Visage+ is a revolutionary facial treatment device that is specifically designed to help you look younger and more radiant. Physio Radiance Visage+ redefines the meaning of anti-ageing by combining three leading facial treatment technologies in one portable device. Using the device 2-3 times a week together with the complete Physio Radiance set, will give you optimal results. Physio Radiance Visage+ effectively helps: • Delay the signs of ageing by reducing fine lines and wrinkles. • Lighten age spots. • Enhance skin hydration levels. • Improve skin texture. • Tone facial muscles.
THE POWER OF THREE Physio Radiance Visage+ is one of the very first facial treatment devices that utilises and combines three revolutionary skin treatment technologies; Galvanic Technology, Radio Frequency and Chromotherapy. Galvanic Technology Galvanic Technology has been used in the beauty industry for over 50 years. It offers the ultimate facial care treatment designed to improve the condition of the skin in two ways: first, through a cleansing process called facial desincrustation, and second, through a moisturising process called iontophoresis. Galvanic Technology works by introducing small, harmless and constant currents to the skin. Negative galvanic currents in the desincrustation process help remove toxins and impurities held within your pores resulting in a completely cleansed skin. Positive galvanic currents in the iontophoresis process encourage better penetration of nutrients into the underlying layers of the skin resulting in better moisturised skin. Radio Frequency Radio Frequency (RF) is considered one of the most effective non-surgical facial treatments available today in the beauty industry. Radio Frequency facelift technology is approved by the FDA as a non-surgical treatment for wrinkles and skin imperfection. RF works by using radio waves to penetrate the outer skin layers to deliver heat energy into the facial muscles and the underlying tissues. The radio waves help stimulate collagen production and tissue contraction resulting in a tighter, brighter skin and reduced wrinkles.
Chromotherapy Chromotherapy or light therapy is one of the latest developments for facial treatments. Chromotherapy works by using three coloured LED lights; red, yellow and blue, at specific wavelengths. These LED lights help promote the natural production of collagen and elastin in your skin, making it firmer, smoother and more radiant while reducing the appearance of wrinkles and blemishes. Red Light helps stimulate and activate skin cells and promotes blood circulation. It enhances anti-ageing effects such as the renewal of cells, collagen and elastin to improve firmness and elasticity of the skin.
Yellow light helps reduce the appearance of redness and swelling of the skin. It also rejuvenates by assisting with the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines.
Blue Light is used to reduce the effects of bacteria manifestation on the skin. Specific wavelengths of the blue light targets the strain of bacteria that plays an important role in causing acne.

NATURAL INGREDIENTS Physio Radiance Replenish Visage+ Gel contains a safe and natural synergy of chamomile flower extract and burdock root extracts, both widely used by many high-end skin care and beauty products.
Chamomile flower is naturally known for its antioxidant properties. It contains high levels of organic compounds called Azulene oil. The oil has anti-inflammatory effects and helps restore and rehydrate the skin. It also acts as an acne cleanser and treatment for wrinkles and fine lines.
FOR CLEARER AND MORE REFINED SKIN The Physio Radiance Replenish Visage+ Gel is designed to be the perfect companion for the Physio Radiance Visage+. Used together with the device, the Gel deeply cleanses the skin and purifies facial pores by removing excess traces of toxins and oil held within the deep layers of the skin. It also helps increase blood circulation while rejuvenating and tightening facial tissue.
Burdock root has antibacterial properties and helps regulate and control the production of a protein called sebum. Sebum is naturally produced by our body to keep the skin healthy by producing oil to lubricate and protect the skin from drying out. However, too much sebum can have negative effects as it can clog the pores and cause bacteria to grow, resulting in acne and blackheads. Burdock root also has soothing properties and helps to alleviate skin irritation, leaving you with healthier skin.
KEY BENEFITS • Deep cleanses the skin. • Alleviates oily and congested skin conditions. • Refines skin texture. • Increases blood circulation. • Rejuvenates and tightens the skin.

Activate Your Skin Cells
ULTIMATE SKIN REJUVENATION FORMULA Physio Radiance is exclusively produced and developed by Laboratoires Schwartz, a renowned laboratory in France. Years of extensive Research and Development (R&D) on the natural mechanisms of protection against the premature ageing of cells have resulted in a select group of anti-ageing, physiologically targeted active ingredients that are contained in ReplenisH- â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an ultimate skin rejuvenation formula contained only in Physio Radiance.

THE KEY ACTIVE INGREDIENT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT! Negative Hydrogen (H-): The Ultimate Skin Antioxidant Negative hydrogen is known as the smallest antioxidant in the world. Due to its size being much smaller than a nanotube, it can effectively penetrate and be absorbed deep down through multiple skin layers. So how does negative hydrogen benefit your skin?
MICROENCAPSULATION TECHNOLOGY Some skin care companies claim that they have negative hydrogen in their products. However, all skin care products contain water, and it is a fact that negative hydrogen automatically neutralises itself when in contact with water and thus negates its own effectiveness.
1. The hydrophobic balls containing H- enter the compartment.
NANOTUBE (4 nm)
H- (0.053 nm)
Comparison between H- and Nanotube • Free Radical Scavenger As a powerful antioxidant, negative hydrogen neutralises harmful free radicals which damage the body’s own cells. This can effectively help slow the natural ageing process.
2. When the pump is pressed, these hydrophobic balls are crushed.
• Cell Energy Booster Negative hydrogen also acts as an energy booster for your skin cells. It provides the spare electrons to assist in cellular energy production without turning itself into a free radical. The result? Your skin blossoms and performs better. 3. H- is released at the last moment, retaining its own efficacy.
Hydrophobic Ball Containing H-
PRODUCT PORTFOLIO | 59
To prevent this contact between water and negative hydrogen, Physio Radiance uses a patented microencapsulation technology that protects the negative hydrogen in small hydrophobic balls. When the pump mechanism – specifically developed for Physio Radiance products – is pressed, these hydrophobic balls are crushed, thus releasing the negative hydrogen at the last moment right before application to the skin. As such, the negative hydrogen is utilised without degradation.
REPLENISH- SET Emulsion Moussante Démaquillante Comfort Emulsion Cleanser The Comfort Emulsion Cleanser is a breakthrough in terms of make-up removal. This creamy cleanser has a pH equivalent to that of tears and directly emulsifies when coming into contact with damp skin. Your skin will be clean, soft and fresh, and your complexion will be enchanced in just a matter of seconds.
Physio Radiance enhances its efficacy by utilising a state-of-the-art airless bottle to protect the product from temperature changes, oxidation, light exposure and contamination, such as from bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
OTHER POWERFUL ANTI-AGEING INGREDIENTS • Fucoïdan: Firmness Fucoïdan is a highly sought-after brown seaweed natural extract. It was discovered during a research study on the exceptionally long-lived inhabitants of Okinawa Island, Japan. Studies indicate that the regular consumption of fucoïdan can help strengthen the immune system, prevent disease and extend life span. Rich in nutrients and possessing healing properties, the powerful and natural fucoïdan extract contained in Physio Radiance products not only provides the skin with high levels of protection against infection and free radicals, but also helps the skin regain its density and firmness.
Lotion Tonique Reminéralisante Remineralising Toner Lotion The Remineralising Toner Lotion, free of alcohol, creates an immediate feeling of freshness and plays a role in the process of remineralising the skin. Designed to prepare the skin for further treatment, it tones the face and ideally complements the Comfort Emulsion Cleanser.
• Calcium: Hydration Not only is calcium good for your bones, it is also an excellent cell cohesion activator that naturally decreases with age. It plays a vital role in restructuring the skin to intensely comfort and hydrate the skin all day long. • Aquaxyl: Moisturising Aquaxyl helps balance all of the skin’s natural systems to enhance moisture, increase water reserves, limit water loss and protect the skin from external elements.
Sérum Anti-Oxydant Absolut Extreme Anti-Oxidant Serum
Behind the finesse and smoothness of the Extreme Anti-Oxidant Serum lies an extreme concentration of powerful, anti-ageing active ingredients. This concentrated skin care product brings firmness and density to your skin.
• Matrixyl 3000: Elasticity Matrixyl 3000 is recognised as the best fibroblast activator, and thus enhances collagen and elastin synthesis. Fluide Jour & Nuit Révélateur D’Eclat Radiance Enhancer Day & Night Fluid The fine, light and silky Radiance Enhancer Day & Night Fluid provides a protective veil that cares for your skin throughout the day.

LISTEN TO WHAT A LEADING DERMATOLOGIST SAYS: “A Good Line of Skin Care For Everybody” Leading dermatologist Prof. Philippe Humbert says, “Our organs, cells and tissues change as we age. The number of cells decreases while the density of collagen and elasticity of the skin progressively lose its functioning capacity. However, it’s possible to reactivate the function of the cells, such as the cells in epidermis and fibroblast collagen production, for example. These cells can be reactivated by different active ingredients contained in cosmetics.
Professor Philippe Humbert is the Head of the Dermatology Department at Besançon University Hospital Centre, in France. He is also the Director of the Centre’s Skin Engineering and Biology Laboratory; and President of the International Society for Biophysics and Imaging of the Skin.
“Since Physio Radiance is formulated to reduce the risk of allergies by avoiding preservatives, parabens and other potentially irritative chemicals, while at the same time including active ingredients which can be useful for the skin, I feel that Physio Radiance is a good line of skin care products for everybody.”
Philippe Humbert, MD, PhD
WHAT OUR PHYSIO RADIANCE USERS HAVE TO SAY:
“I have spent a lot of money on skin care products over the years and always felt very disappointed in them, as they had only temporary positive results. I still had wrinkles and fine lines on my face, particularly around my eyes and lips.
“I came across Physio Radiance during the Physio Radiance Ambassador Training Programme organised in September 2010. I’ve been using Physio Radiance ever since, and I’ve noticed that my skin is more radiant. The fine lines on my forehead and the wrinkles over my face are fading. Physio Radiance gives me a more youthful look, all the while keeping my skin soft and healthy looking. This is the best skin care product I have ever used! “Thank you Physio Radiance. You are like a time machine that brings back my youthfulness!” − Punitha Narayanan Malaysia
“My face used to be so oily in the summer and very dry and reddish in the winter. However, after using Physio Radiance for a month, I noticed a positive change!
“Since my first application of Physio Radiance, I felt that my skin was softer and smoother than before. During winter, I usually had to apply moisturiser from other brands on my face at least three to four times a day. But now with Physio Radiance’s Radiance Enhancer Day & Night Fluid, I apply it only one time in the morning, and believe it or not, my skin is hydrated all day long – even if I wash my face during the day. My skin is much healthier! “What I like most about Physio Radiance is that it is paraben- and preservative-free. It also has the ability to activate our skin cells. Physio Radiance is truly amazing!” − Elis Rusnawati Hong Kong

A BIOSILVER USER SHARES HER STORY: I first came across BioSilver 22 Gel when I was at V-Malaysia 2013. When I was there, I got bitten twice by mosquitoes. I first got bitten before I got my BioSilver 22 Gel. A blister started to form and it itched a lot. I bought the BioSilver 22 Gel before I got bitten the second time. I used the gel on both bites and noticed that the itching stopped. The second bite didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even form into a blister like the first one. I have been using BioSilver 22 Gel ever since and will not leave the house without one.

The beauty of nature is evident everywhere. If we only choose to look, we will find inspiration from the simplest things in the forests and the seas. A tree branch laden with bright berries, colourful corals from the deep blue ocean, the changing seasons – all these and more have proven to be the inspiration for thousands of artists and designers over the millenia. Enamoured by the natural beauty she has seen on her travels around the world, Datin Sri Umayal Eswaran was inspired to put together a collection that would reflect nature in all its splendour. “We often take the beauty of nature for granted. The brightness of a blade of grass, the soft velvety touch of a rose petal, and the filigreed silhouette of the sea fan coral are all examples of the creativity nature displays. The greatest tribute we can pay nature is to attempt to emulate her ingenuity. The Umayal Collection is our own ode to nature,” says Datin Sri Umayal. “Combining my own love for our natural heritage with my appreciation for the fine things in life, this collection is designed to be simple yet elegant, and will add a distinctive touch to the wearer’s sense of style. I know it will connect with the hearts and souls of discerning women around the world.” Inspired by the rustic beauty of tree branches and the intricate lacey designs of corals from the sea, the pieces in the Umayal Collection are artfully fashioned from silver and ornamented with delicate gemstones. Each piece is handmade with the utmost care by skilled craftsmen, ensuring its uniqueness and quality. Created to emulate nature at its best, the Umayal Collection is one that will appeal to those with a passion for nature. As Chairperson of RYTHM Foundation, Datin Sri Umayal adheres to the fundamental philosophy of the Foundation – RYTHM, an acronym derived from the precept ‘Raise Yourself To Help Mankind’, based on the idea of being the change you want to see in the world. A portion of the earnings from the sale of the Umayal Collection will be donated to RYTHM Foundation, for further use in its charity works across the globe, giving help to those who need it most.
ABOUT RYTHM FOUNDATION RYTHM Foundation, QNET’s CSR arm, is dedicated to educating, inspiring and working with others to create a brighter future for those in need.

And yet, though the land is gripped with cold, there is still a timeless beauty to be seen: in the shimmer of fresh snow in sunlight, the glitter of icicles on the end of a branch, or the delicate tracks upon the landscape of creatures born to revel in a winter wonderland.

THE SPIRIT OF A FAMILY TRADITION In 1871, when the small town of Pforzheim or Goldstadt (City of Gold) was just seeing its humble beginnings as the centre of Germany’s jewellery and watchmaking industry, the Mayer family set up shop and began manufacturing and selling dies (tools for minting coins). The independent family-owned business expanded into minting and soon they were producing collectible and commemorative coins from precious metals which were highly valued all over the world. The Mayer Mint GmbH Germany consequently became a key player in the numismatic field. With the turn of the 19th century, embossed and engraved covers of quality pocket watches were becoming indispensable accessories to enthusiasts; a significant fashion and reputation statement that signified the owner’s taste, wealth and family heritage. Great grandfather Mayer took on the hobby of engraving watch covers, and it was this leisurely interest that later turned out to be the birth of a passion, style and a newly found tradition which laid the foundations for Bernhard H. Mayer® watches. As time went by, watches became strongly associated with the Mayer business. When the family decided to partner with a watch production facility in Switzerland, it was only a matter of time before the Bernhard H. Mayer® brand would become recognised as a genuine manufacturer of Swiss watches. The vision to enrich the eternal value of precious metals and gemstones and render high-quality watches and jewellery for discerning customers steadily built the Bernhard H. Mayer® name in the global luxury goods. After 140 years of ceaseless production and five generations of Mayer watchmaking, the rich heritage of more than a century of unrivalled knowledge, experience and skill in every aspect of the numismatic, jewellery and watchmaking art continues. Bridging past and future, Bernhard H. Mayer® master artisans remain faithful to the spirit of tradition that began in 1871 while embracing innovation with every new decade to guarantee that the legacy of excellence started by the Mayer forefathers will continue onto succeeding generations.
MANUFACTURING EXCELLENCE By owning a Bernhard H. Mayer® premium item, one enters the circle of those who share the philosophy of excellence held by the Mayer family, and who wish to express this through objects worthy of such distinction.

This demanding approach brings together a rare combination of time-honoured techniques, advanced research, cutting-edge technology, and powerful technical resources − all in strict accordance with established industry standards and guidelines.

200 MILLION YEARS OF NATURAL ENERGY CAPTURED IN FINE JEWELLERY Those involved in the study of crystals believe that crystals can assist in conducting and transferring energy to the user, and also contribute to an increase and balance in people’s energy levels. From the sacred tops of the highest mountains in the world, the Himalayan Crystal is credited with possessing the highest and most rare form of this energy-conducting ability. The ancient origins and delicate, laborious hand excavation of the Himalayan Crystal ensures it is forever cherished as an exceptional ‘master’ of the crystal family and saved for precious and romantic purposes. According to literature by crystal experts, the Himalayan Crystal amplifies energy, possesses a high-energy vibration, and is much sought after by many crystal lovers as the most versatile ‘well-being’ crystal in the mineral kingdom.
PRODUCT PORTFOLIO | 121
ORIGIN & SELECTION The Himalayan Crystal is among the rarest and most treasured crystals on Earth, hailing from a region renowned for its natural offerings. Himalayan Crystals have been exposed to natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elements for more than 200 million years, which enhance higher natural energy reserves over other crystals. Each Himalayan Crystal is hand mined and individually selected from the peaks of the Himalayas in Nepal, 3,000 metres above sea level. Such a difficult endeavour of naturally gathering these crystals means they are among the rarest in the world, and their pristine origin results in the purest quartz crystal known to man.
SECRET CRAFTING TECHNIQUE The Himalayan Crystal CollectionTM is the first and only brand to capture the natural energy and pure beauty of these ancient quartz crystals. The climax of the 200 million-year-old crystal creation and the delicate crafting process is opulent, luxury jewellery creations that embrace 18 K white or yellow gold, diamonds and sterling silver 925/- with 5 micron rhodium plating. The pieces of exquisite jewellery that comprise the Himalayan Crystal CollectionTM have been meticulously and individually hand crafted; a process that demands many man hours by highly skilled jewellers. Achieving the mystique of a diamond appearing within the perfect crystal without damaging or scarring the glass-like surface is an extremely delicate and difficult crafting technique. This technique is a tightly guarded secret and allows the precision inlay of precious stones and metals into the crystal. Only the creators of the exclusive Himalayan Crystal CollectionTM have mastered the technique.

Himalayan Crystal, Sterling silver 925/- with 5 micron rhodium plating
Tri Angle Pendant Optimise and Restore Your Body’s Energy Equilibrium The Earth is made up of many triangular energy grids; each triangle is isosceles in nature and presents two identical 51.51° angles. This specific angular degree is also the degree of the base angles of the mysterious energy-conducting Great Pyramids of Egypt. The energy-enhancing Tri Angle Pendant replicates this exact triangular precision in the attempt to recreate and harness the natural energy of the Himalayan Crystal to its full potential. A highly specialised ‘lens cut’ could help optimise or restore the body’s energy equilibrium. Equally as beneficial and stylish for both ladies and gents, the Tri Angle Pendant is embraced by sterling silver with 5 micron rhodium plating, creating beautiful jewellery pieces with the natural properties of the Himalayan Crystal.

The Art of Management
Those who achieve the most in life are always learning. They are students of life, students of their mentors, students of their peers, and students of their experiences. Their ‘cups are empty’, always ready to learn. They seek to improve themselves at every turn. Following the concept of RYTHM, they strive to raise themselves in every way, for the benefit of themselves and those around them. At the Swiss eLearning Institute, courses are designed for these types of people; both those who aspire to achieve and those who are already achieving. The thirst for learning and personal development lives in everyone, but is especially evident in networkers. Investing in your future goes beyond financial gain. Investing in your future is investing in yourself; enhancing your personal knowledge and continuing education. The framework of the Swiss eLearning Institute is based on the concept of ‘continuing education’; a post-secondary education programme that is set up to provide further enrichment, whether professionally or personally. For more information about the Swiss eLearning Institute, visit www.swisselearninginstitute.com.

Where is the Swiss eLearning Institute based? The Swiss eLearning Institute is located on an advanced web-based platform powered by Switzerland’s leading global online business school.
Anybody can benefit from continuing education, but the informal and flexible nature of continuing education courses provides a particular advantage to those whose professions are constantly evolving, especially networkers. When we first develop ourselves, other aspects surrounding our lives improve also. A healthy mind leads to a healthy body, which leads to a healthy, wealthy life. Yet, when do you have the time to go back to basics and build on your core skills? How can busy, determined networkers suddenly drop everything they’re doing to attend school? And after all, the power of network marketing is in its ability to be taught and duplicated, without a prerequisite of a university degree or a piece of paper that says ‘diploma’.
Improve yourself today and watch the results in your business. Invest in your own human capital, that of your own and of your team. Invest in your own future, and help improve those around you.
WHAT MAKES A NETWORKER? • • • •
Dynamic and progressive lifestyles. Flexibility and adaptability to change. A desire to make a difference. A yearning passion to evolve and change one’s life.
And what is life if we are not learning? This is where QNET, together with the academic experts and leading professors at Switzerland’s leading online university, has blended together the skills that make a successful networker. The Swiss eLearning Institute recognises that a strictly structured, tightly framed environment like that of a traditional university or classroom setting is not the most suitable for the fast-paced, dynamic and progressive life and busy schedules of networkers. Unlike a normal classroom, eLearning offers a flexible and an informal educational environment tailor-made for professional development. The Swiss eLearning Institute offers well-developed courses, from beginner to advanced to niche, for the modern networker.

JOURNEYS WITH QVI!
Dreams Vacation Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt I realised that Dreams Vacation Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt is one of the best in the area. The beach, pool and entertainment activities for day and night were all great. Everything about the resort itself — the cleanliness, the greenery and the restaurants — were great. I had a good time with my family. Although I went during winter, the weather was hot during the day and the sun was perfect as we enjoyed the pool every day and even the sea! The beach has a breathtaking view since the resort is situated on a cliff. To add to that, there is also the beautiful walkway on the top of the cliff along the coast connecting Dreams Vacation Sharm El Sheikh and Dreams Beach Sharm El Sheikh which is just next to it. At the walkway, one can relax on the benches and enjoy the sea view, especially during sunset. I highly recommend these two resorts for families.
Citin Loft Pattaya, Thailand Next year I’m going back to Citin Loft Pattaya, Thailand again. When we arrived at the hotel, the receptionist welcomed us warmly and took us to our suite. It was a nice two-bedroom apartment on the sixth floor with two balconies and two clean and well-equipped bathrooms. There was a microwave, refrigerator, and boiler placed in the kitchen. The hotel was located in the middle of the city, allowing us to walk to the beach, the Walking Street and other famous shopping malls of the city such as Central Festival and Mike Shopping Mall. This produced a lovely accommodation along with a great time in Pattaya. Lastly, I want to thank QVI, the hotel crew, and the QVI Customer Experience Ambassadors who helped us have a great vacation in Pattaya, Thailand! – Ehsan

Increased Physical Performance; Accelerated Recovery after Physical Performance The purpose of the study conducted by the Institute was to confirm the benefits of wearing the Veloci-Ti pendants near the neck area, in particular the effect upon certain functional indices of the cardiovascular system and the system that supplies energy to the body for activities. Highly skilled sportspeople were used as participants in the study. After a measured period of intense physical loading and activity, various bodily systems and functions were measured in the athletes, such as heart rate variability (HRV), blood pressure, pulse rate, velocity of muscle reactions, body tissue conductivity, and energy profiles (EPC/GDV parameters). Based on the test results, Veloci-Ti pendants increase the adaptive abilities of the human body, preparing the body for the physical challenges met by sportspeople and improving energy levels, endurance and general physical performance. After the participating athletes had worn the Veloci-Ti pendants for 24 hours, the pendants were found to have increased the overall capability of the body and helped accelerate recovery after physical activity.

• ELECTROCHEMICAL QUALITY CONSULTING CORPORATION (EQC), GERMANY
The Electrochemical Quality Consulting Corporation (EQC) is a laboratory specialising in electrochemical measurements on food, soil and compost. Recently and notably, the company obtained results about the immediate connection between redox potential in the soil and the redox potential of the products grown on that ground. All these measurements are an indication that the quality of foods and beverages can be verified by means of redox potentials. The redox value shows the relation between oxidation and reduction, which explains how many electrons are taken up, and conversely, released. Food and beverages that have a lower redox value are of a higher quality and will help improve the body’s inherent order and providing more electrons to neutralise free radicals. Moreover, the lower the redox value, the lower the oxidation potential of food and drinks, which helps increase the shelf life and boosts the taste of your groceries. Positive Effect on Beverages The measurements taken by EQC show that a reduction of the redox value within the Amezcua DRINK was visible, which is considered to be thermodynamically positive. Positive Effect on Foods Test results conducted by EQC also show that the Amezcua EAT can lower redox value, which is considered to be thermodynamically positive.

Improved Energy Medical Criteria; Reduced Impact of Perturbing Technical Radiation The Amezcua E-Guard has been scientifically tested using meridian diagnostics and segmentary diagnostics to assess its bio-energetic, bio-informational, bio-functional and bio-colloidal effects. A positive result was significantly and reproducibly demonstrated, noting that the Amezcua E-Guard helps improve energy medical criteria such as energy, information, functional and sol-gel state and reduces the impact of perturbing technical radiation on the organism. Increased Energy Levels in Water and the Human Body The effects of the Amezcua Bio Discs, the Amezcua Energy Shell, and the Amezcua DRINK on the quality of water and the bioenergetic state of the human body were tested by Dr med. Manfred Doepp at the Holistic Center in Germany, using meridian diagnostics. The test results showed that the Amezcua Bio Discs, the Amezcua Energy Shell, and the Amezcua DRINK all have successful operational areas in the energetic-informational treatment of liquids and water containing nutrients. Water treated with the Amezcua Bio Discs, the Amezcua Energy Shell, and the Amezcua DRINK also has an increased level of energy and harmony. Protection Against E-smog Electrosmog is the negative effect of electromagnetic fields created by electronic equipment in our environment such as mobile phones, computers, lighting, air conditioners and other electrical appliances. The meridian diagnostics test shows that the Amezcua Chi Pendant, the Amezcua E-Guard and the Amezcua MOVE is able to neutralise the negative effects of electrosmog, as well as improve and harmonise the energy levels of the user. Positive Energy Field The tests conducted by Dr Doepp show that the Amezcua Bio Disc, Amezcua Chi Pendant, Amezcua Energy Shell, Amezcua E-Guard and Amezcua Lifestyle Set 2 all possess a positive energy field. Test results also reveal that when the Amezcua Bio Disc, Amezcua Chi Pendant and Amezcua MOVE are held, the holder’s energy and harmony levels show a significant increase. PROGNOS™ machine tests show that Veloci-Ti pendants are able to improve energy and harmony while also balancing the bodily autonomous systems suffering from stress. The test results have shown that the energy and harmony effects of Veloci-Ti pendants compile a ‘total balance’. Improved Harmony Levels The effects of Veloci-Ti pendants on the bioenergetic state of the human body were tested by the automatic electronic diagnostic device Amsat-HC™. The results of these tests indicate an improvement in users’ harmony levels after wearing a Veloci-Ti performance pendant. Improved Stress Index The measurements conducted by the KardiVar™ device show that Veloci-Ti pendants can improve the stress index of the wearer’s body and also enable increased agility without creating any new stress.

• PSB LABORATORY, SINGAPORE
The NEA tests show that the material of the Veloci-Ti products and the Himalayan Crystal Collection™ contains a trace amount of low energy radioactive emission and certifies that it should not cause any health effect to the human body.
PSB test reports are widely recognised by manufacturers, third-party buyers, and government authorities in Singapore. Its laboratories are also accredited under the Singapore Accreditation Council – Singapore Laboratory Accreditation Scheme (SINGLAS) to ISO 17025. Water Surface Tension Value Results show that after treatment by the Amezcua Bio Disc and the Amezcua Energy Shell, the water surface tension value moved closer to that of pure water. The change in surface tension value renders the water more bioavailable, thus improving the compatibility of water molecules with the body’s cells. It also means that treated water carries detergent thoroughly into materials, again due to its surface tension value being close to that of pure water. This means a more efficient and effective washing of your laundry or dishes, allowing you to reduce the amount of detergent used. With less detergent used, wastewater discharged from the washing machine is more environmentally friendly.
• I.H.M. INSTITUTE, JAPAN The I.H.M. Institute in Japan was founded by Dr Masaru Emoto, a Doctor of Alternative Medicine. Dr Emoto achieved international acclaim through his extensive research of water around the world. He is also the President Emeritus of the International Water for Life Foundation. Energy Levels in Water Water not treated with the Amezcua Bio Disc**
Research has revealed a correlation between the formation of water crystals and the quality of water, in terms of the degree of pollution. In recent I.H.M. Institute research, it became clear that energy could affect the formation of water crystals. Thus, water crystal formation reflects not only physical but also informational or energetic aspects of water. Water samples with a good balance of minerals and energy tend to produce beautifully formed crystals. A water crystal experiment conducted at the Institute showed that water treated with the Amezcua Bio Disc produced beautiful and good water crystals, compared to normal distilled water. The treated water was found to have less ‘depressed’ water crystals.
