A Funded Proposal system pays you upfront to help cover normal business costs, while building your Network Marketing Business.

In the past few months there has been a major shift in the mindset of how to build a Network Marketing business. This major shift is called a Funded Proposal system.

The majority of eager new Network Marketing business owners are taught out dated methods of how to recruit new distributors. The costs of old school methods of making lists, buying leads and placing ads usually drives the new business owners out of business and leaves a negative feeling towards the industry as a whole.

Healthy LifeStyle Marketing is now offering education on the Funded Proposal system. A Funded Proposal system is based on the front-end promotion and selling of a generic solution and system, rather than the promotion of your primary Network Marketing business.

The income generated by the sales of this solution and system funds your primary Network Marketing business, keeping the majority of business owners solvent and providing funds to market their primary businesses.

You can get free instant access to this Funded Proposal system here…

The 1992 Earth Summit in Brazil reported that mineral depletion of our arable farm soil is a WORLDWIDE EPIDEMIC, with the United States topping the charts with an 85% soil depletion of minerals.
Sea vegetables that grow 200 feet below the surface in the “REGENERATION ZONE” of the Arctic Ocean may be the key to the body’s ability to defeat some of the nations most dangerous killers.

Scientists make an amazing discovery 200 feet below the surface in the ”REGENERATION ZONE” of the Arctic Ocean. This area of the ocean is constantly being replenished with nutrients and minerals and the sea vegetables that grow there may be the key to the body’s ability to defeat some of the nations most dangerous killers.
The 1992 Earth Summit in Brazil reported that mineral depletion of our arable farm soil is a WORLDWIDE EPIDEMIC, with the United States topping the charts with an 85% soil depletion of minerals. As a result of this lack of minerals in our diet, we have seen an explosion of autoimmune diseases like Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
As little as 60 years ago 1 out of 20 people would get Cancer, now you have a 1 out of 3 chance of getting Cancer and a 1 out of 4 chance from dying of Cancer. Scientific data from credible sources all over the world are beginning to support that the addition of phytonutrients and minerals from these sea vegetables to your daily diet, can greatly improve your immune system’s response “When you compare the dramatic increase in Cancer and the rise of autoimmune diseases with the severe depletion of minerals in our farming soils, what you find is a direct correlation between this mineral depletion and the increased risk of getting these diseases. As a result, we seek the use of drugs to treat the symptoms rather than to address the cause. By simply adding these lost minerals to our diets, we can provide our bodies with the ability to boost our immune system and this can lead to the defeat of some of our societies most feared killers. Providing your body daily with these minerals and phytonutrients from the sea gives our body the best chance to repair and heal itself,” says John Obraza, one of the nations leading phytonutrient specialists.

Is Your Body Balanced?

Many people ask why one needs to take vitamins or minerals. And some people who do take supplements ask why you need dosages exceeding the recommended daily allowances? Among the reasons are depleted soil, low-nutrient crops, food processing, use of pesticides and herbicides, stress, special circumstances like pregnancy, and that we use nutrients for therapy, not just to avoid deficiency diseases.

Government scientists meet periodically to decide the levels of the recommended daily allowances (RDA) of nutrients. The main criterion is the amount needed to prevent deficiency diseases. Vitamin C deficiency causes scurvy, vitamin A deficiency causes night blindness, and B1 deficiency causes pellagra.

While this approach is fine as far as it goes, these recommendations have little to with optimum health. One of every two Americans will contract cancer and 50% of the population by age 40 has a chronic illness. In theory, most of these people meet or exceed the RDAs for nutrients.

The theory of the RDAs ignores more subtle aspects of nutrition such as the effect of vitamin C or zinc on tumor inhibition. This is much harder to measure, so it is ignored. The government requires that companies print the percentage of the RDA on each supplement bottle. This can cause alarm until one understands why the RDAs are inappropriate and often irrelevant.


I also recommend higher dosages of certain nutrients for other reasons. These include:

1) Most people today are born depleted and toxic. Even if you were to find the greatest food, and your health is perfect, most of us are born today with nutritional deficiencies thanks to deficiencies in parents. Both nutrient deficiencies and toxic metals that require extra nutrients for their removal are passed on through the placenta.

2) Today’s soil is depleted. Many soils are low in zinc, manganese, chromium, molybdenum, calcium and magnesium. This means that although one eats an excellent diet of organic foods, one will not obtain all the nutrients one needs.

3) H-yield crops are deficient in certain nutrients. Ten times the amount of wheat is grown on the same land as was grown 100 years ago. Today’s wheat contains about 6% protein whereas 100 years ago it contained 12-14%. Trace mineral levels are similarly much lower due to high-yield farming methods.

4) Modern fertilizers do not supply enough trace elements. One hundred years ago, manures were used extensively for fertilizer. Today, super phosphate fertilizers have largely replaced manures. These contain mainly nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus and are deficient in the trace elements contained in manures. Super phosphates often act more as growth stimulants. This has contributed greatly to depletion of the soil and crop minerals. This includes organically grown food, although it is much better..

5) Pesticides and herbicides kill soil microorganisms and affect the nutrition of the plant. Soil microorganisms are needed to make minerals and other nutrients available to plants. The result is lower nutrient content. Also, our bodies require extra nutrients to process pesticide residues that remain inside the foods.

Many pesticides are deadly chemicals that severely tax the human system. Some contain lead, arsenic and other toxic metals that slowly accumulate in the body unless and until one follows a health program designed to remove them.

Our laws currently allow sewage and factory sludge to be sold as fertilizer that contains significant quantities of toxic metals. These add greatly to our toxic metal burden and require extra nutrients to help remove them from the body.

6) Long-distance transportation of many foods diminishes their nutrition. Many foods are grown thousands of miles from population centers. They may spend a week on trucks or trains to reach you. As soon as a food is harvested, the levels of certain nutrients begin to diminish. This is another factor that reduces our nutrient intake and increases the need for supplements.

7) Food processing often drastically reduces nutrient content. Refining of wheat to make white flour removes 80% of its magnesium, 70-80% of its zinc, 87% of its chromium, 88% of its manganese and 50% of its cobalt.

Refining sugar cane to make white sugar removes 99% of its magnesium and 93% of its chromium. Polishing rice removes 75% of its zinc and chromium. Canned food may be quite old. Frozen foods are nutritionally better.

8) Food additives often deplete nutrients. Thousands of artificial flavors, colors, dough conditioners, stabilizers and preservatives are added to many foods. While some are harmless and may increase the value of food, many are toxic and can deplete the body of nutrients.

As a result of eating refined, low-quality food loaded with additives, most people’s digestion is impaired. This further impairs nutrient absorption and increases nutritional needs.

9) Pollution and Stress deplete many nutrients including calcium, magnesium and zinc. Stress also causes excessive sympathetic nervous system activity, which reduces digestive ability. These are other important reasons why supplementation in high doses is sometimes needed.


Most everyone needs extra nutrients to make up for deficiencies due to all the sources above. So severe are nutrient deficiencies today that in addition to your recommended diet I recommend everyone use unrefined sea salt and a high quality liquid supplement, which consists of sea vegetables. These sea plants are one of the last sources where you can obtain these missing vital minerals.

Top people are long-term thinkers. Average thinkers think only about the present, and about immediate gratification. But leaders think about where they want to be in five and ten years, and what they have to do each hour of each day to make their desired future a reality.

1. Leaders inspire others because they are inspired themselves. They are excited about the possibility of creating an exciting future for themselves. They get up every morning and they see every effort they make as part of a great plan to accomplish something wonderful with their lives.

2. Leaders are optimistic. They see opportunities in everything that happens, positive or negative. They look for the good in every situation and in every person. They seek the valuable lessons contained in every problem or setback. They never experience “failures;” instead, they write them off as “learning experiences.”

3. Leaders have a sense of meaning and purpose in each area of their lives. They have clear, written goals and plans they work on every day. Leaders are clear about where they are going and what they will have to do to get there. Their behavior is purposeful and goal-directed. As a result, they accomplish five and ten times as much as the average person who operates from day to day with little concern about the future.

4. Leaders accept personal responsibility. Leaders never complain, never explain. Instead of making excuses, they make progress. Whenever they have a set-back or difficulty, they repeat to themselves, “I am responsible! I am responsible! I am responsible!”

5. Leaders see themselves as victors over circumstances rather than victims of circumstances. They don’t criticize or blame others when something goes wrong. Instead, they focus on the solution.

6. Leaders are action-oriented. They are constantly in motion. They try something, and then something else, and then something else again. They never give up.

7. Leaders have integrity. They tell the truth at all times. They live in truth with themselves, and they live in truth with others.

In the final analysis, you are the leader of your own life. You are the general in command of your own personal army. You are the president of your own personal services corporation. You are the “Captain of your fate and the master of your soul.”

Reducing High Blood Pressure with Vitamins – Four Nutrients That Will Save Your Life

This article was written by Alvin Hopkinson a researcher who specializes in natural ways to reduce blood pressure.

This article goes along with my philosophy that prescription drugs, necessary and life saving in most cases are not the ONLY solutions to physical and mental ailments. I believe that if we are provided with the proper nutrients and minerals each day that our own body can “heal” itself. I am NOT advocating to stop the usage of your properly prescribed medications, but offering you information that could help your body combat any health issues you may have.
Nobel prize winner Linus Pauling wrote, all disease can be traced back to a lack of minerals in the body and I agree with his findings.


In addition to prescribed medications, it is extremely beneficial to incorporate home remedies to lower your blood pressure. Hypertension is significantly dangerous and potentially life threatening. Consequently, anyone suffering from the disease would be encouraged to research information about reducing high blood pressure with vitamins. Medical research and studies conducted by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) indicates that certain vitamins are guaranteed to lower your blood pressure.

Eating right comes easy by choosing a good diet which is essential for people with Hypertension. The dietary guidelines recommended by the U.S. Departments of Agriculture and of the Health and Human Services combat the factors that are associated with high blood pressure. The goal is to minimize the unhealthy lifestyle habits that are harmful to your health and may shorten your life. Here is a productive list of USDA approved vitamin supplements that are effective against high blood pressure.

Potassium: This is a vitamin that is proven to help prevent and control high blood pressure. Be sure to eat foods that pertain plenty of Potassium. Foods that are a good source for potassium are fruits, vegetables, dairy foods and fish. Specific foods are apricots, bananas, beets, oranges, prunes, milk- fat free or skim, baked potato (flesh &skin), cooked spinach, fish and winter squash.

Calcium: This vitamin/minerals supplement is a powerful blood pressure lowering element. It is an important nutrient for overall good health. It is recommended that you take one gram of elemental calcium daily. Foods that are a good source of calcium are dairy products such as milk, yogurt and cheese. To maintain a healthy body weight, however, be sure to consume skim or lowfat varieties. Foods that are high in calcium include raw broccoli, salmon, cooked turnip greens and tofu.

Magnesium: Magnesium deficiency could be potentially dangerous for those suffering from Hypertension. As a matter-of-fact, the vitamin level is extremely low in the Hypertension patients. Therefore, it is recommended that you eat plenty of foods that contain this nutrient. It is possible to take a daily supplement of 400mg daily. Recommended food source for magnesium is beans, okra, broccoli, spinach, croaker and nuts/seeds.

Vitamin C: This nutritional supplement is important for controlling elevated blood pressure. If the serum level of Vitamin C is low, the blood pressure rises. It is not yet determined, however, if this is a result of dietary habits or a direct effect of the Hypertension.

The key to reducing high blood pressure with vitamins is to eat a variety of foods that actually supply the nutrients, fiber and vitamins that is indeed required to reduce elevated pressure. Fundamentally, you should apply a basic vitamin or mineral formula to your diet and supplement it with nutritional supplements daily.
