Did you know that our doctors now make a Physician’s Pledge rather than swear on the Hippocratic Oath?

Posted on: March 26th, 2019

Did you know that our doctors now make a Physician's Pledge rather than swear on the Hippocratic Oath?  A great majority of people still believe that our doctors swear by the Hippocratic Oath as part of their doctor training not realising that they now use the Physician's Pledge. Which one do you prefer? HIPPOCRATIC OATH I swear by Apollo Physician and Asclepius and Hygieia and Panaceia and all the gods and goddesses, making them my witnesses, that I will fulfill according to my ability and judgment this oath and this covenant: To hold him who has taught me this art as equal to my...

Aromatherapy Changes Lives

Posted on: January 24th, 2019

"Oh I have been meaning to write a letter about the life that Balanced Essentials has given not only me but my whole family. It was around 18 years ago I tuned into TVSN to watch my favourite bear show.. But it wasn't to be, instead they were having a long event celebrating a new supplier and Cheryl was there to chat with customers and answer questions.  I watched thinking maybe this could work.. When they started talking about BE Sport and BE Relieved I was more intrigued.. You see I had a young child who was born with cerebral palsy and as such had lots of muscle spasms and was...

You could be our 50,000th order and receive a $500 gift voucher

Posted on: March 23rd, 2018

Wow!  It's hard to believe that we will invoice our 50,000th order in the next few days.  It is so very close! If you need to order, now is a great time and this number could be yours. To celebrate this incredible achievement, Balanced Essentials will give the lucky customer whose Invoice number is 50,000 a $500 GIFT VOUCHER which they can use to purchase products, either all at once or over time as they need more. And this is remarkable as it's not the 50,000th product being sold that makes it so special, as some of the invoices that have been processed (such as the Television...

BE RELIEVED, BE SPORT, BE LITE … Which one do I chose?

Posted on: September 13th, 2017

It's really very simple. BE RELIEVED is our most popular pain relief product and that's because it's so versatile. As well as helping with pain and inflammation it is also very calming and is the best one to use at night to help with sleep. Geranium oil is used for its anti-inflammatory properties, while Bergamot and Orange are used for their anti-spasmodic properties. Neroli helps with calming and is used in aromatherapy for shock and grief. BE RELIEVED also combines lavender and marjoram for their pain relief and sedative properties.  BE SPORT is a good choice when you need a...

Why is it better to use a natural analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic? Let’s look at the synthetic alternative.

Posted on: July 7th, 2017

Paracetamol is the most widely prescribed and recommended systemic analgesic used to relieve pain. It has no curative abilities, yet you often hear people comment that the doctor told them to “go home and have some paracetamol” without fully realising that it only masks the condition or complaint. Pharmaceutical analgesics do not work on the cause of pain itself – only the sensation. Paracetamol in new health ALERT: Doctors warned over prescribing daily painkiller. Taking a daily paracetamol tablet could put you at risk of deadly heart disease and kidney failure, a new study suggests.

The best thing about essential oils.

Posted on: July 7th, 2017

I’ve been involved in the natural health industry now for just over twenty years and if there is one thing that I love the most about essential oils it is their versatility. No other form of healing can match them.  Be it in the way they are applied - taken by mouth (as in France), applied to the skin; vapourised or added to a bath; and for the incredible number of conditions that they treat. These concentrated extracts from plants are DNA encoded to help humans and animals. They lovingly embrace us when we feel sad, they remove our pain, they help us breath better, they encourage our...
