Our Vision Philosophy and Mission
Healing Through Education
We will have achieved our mission when people throughout the world are taught in their schools and in their communities the holistic principles of life that everything affects everything else. When we are taught to think strategically before we act tactically and when we consider the big picture before we take individual steps, we will be holistic. What we do in one aspect of our lives we do in others. We do unto others as we would have them do unto us. What we do to others affects us, too. We focus on health issues first, but we understand that holistic approach to our existence on this planet involves all aspects of our interaction with each other, with other species, and the whole environment we are an integral part of. Our glass is half full (not half empty). There is enough for everybody, the only challenge is our generous distribution of access to resources. It is the fear of lack that causes some people to hoard and collects, and to keep others out behind their fences and walls.
Here is a quote that I want you to read, then stop, and contemplate:
“A truth’s initial commotion is directly proportional to how deeply the lie was believed. When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.” This was written by Dresden James, a pen name of Donald James Wheal (1931-2008), a British novelist and scriptwriter, who wrote under different pseudonyms, among them Donald James and Thomas Dresden.
We aim to provide you with clear and fact-based information on nutrition, cleansing, exercise, and lifestyle choices that restore, maintain and even improve your health. We seek out and publish research by experts who are focused on finding and treating causes that heal your body and prevent future illness.
Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship to restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal privileges to others: The Constitution of this Republic should make a special privilege for medical freedom as well as religious freedom.”~Dr. Benjamin Rush, signer of the Declaration of Independence
Healing Through Nutrition!
Our vision is to transform the existing medical paradigm from the one addicted to pharmaceuticals, surgeries and other methods that only conceal or remove specific symptoms – with morbid results to our health and economy – to one focused on treating and preventing the underlying causes. This guidance will not be tainted by advertisers, investors, sponsors, or any other party offering financial or other returns in exchange for the promotion of their ideas, suggestions or goods. Where we recommend or offer products and services on this site, it is because we have researched them and truly believe they are worthy. We work to expose common medical techniques, habits, and messages that are putting your health in danger. By exposing motives – usually greed – that form the basis of commercial interactions, we work to remove barriers to your healing. Our work will be done when all medical professionals are truly committed to their patients’ health and well-being and when natural healing is no longer called alternative.
It has been said that peace begins when the hungry are fed. It is equally true that the hungry will be fed when peace begins. Equality and non-violence – peace and justice – are inextricably linked, and neither can flourish in the absence of the other.~Jonathan Schell
Jevari Oberon started the original Life Enthusiast Co-op on July 4, 1989, to share his superfood formulas with these words:
“Life Enthusiast Co-op is dedicated to developing the most functionally advanced life energy goods available.”
The company was a great success. When the FDA came to raid it in 1994, it had 70 employees and sales of half a million dollars per month. Life Enthusiast Co-op and its products (Excela) were on the same list as Dr. Jonathan Wright. In the end, it was a technicality that allowed them to force the management to cease operations – nothing to do with the quality of the products, the safety of manufacture, or the satisfaction of the customers. It had to do with using some published information on a brochure. Following the disruption, the heart went out of the company, and it slowly devolved until it became defunct in the late 1990s. Darren Beddard carried the torch for a while and helped inspire Martin Pytela to revive the movement.
We invite people who wish to live their lives to their fullest to embrace the concept of becoming a true “life enthusiast” to join us and spread the word that vibrant health, clear minds, and strong bodies are not just a lofty concept, but an achievable reality. We have re-launched Life Enthusiast Co-op in 2001 with Twilight America products developed by Jim Carter to deliver water structuring and magnesium supplementation to help reverse symptoms related to aging. We have added Miracle II products developed by Clayton Tedeton a while later. They come with a story no less interesting, helping clean up our environment as well as our environment. Carried on Martin’s involvement with powerful ORMUS products we brought to market products made by alchemists reviving the ancient art/science and sharing it with others.
The nano-minerals (Ormus, manna, white gold) are helping us ascend in our quest for higher consciousness. We have added natural crystal salt from the Himalayas for its unique features. Our Environment Energy Clearing products made by ADR are rapidly gaining recognition, and have been proven in controlled tests to positively impact our energetic bodies. In 2005 we have restarted the manufacture of Exsula products, bringing them back from the brink of extinction. Exsula products are unique; many have attempted unsuccessfully to duplicate their energetic potency and life-supporting nutritional values. Research done by alternative medicine researchers such as Norman Shealy, William Wong or Brice Vickery shows us that we can change the course of aging and decay that the establishment medicine would have us accept. The record of allopathic medicine is itself an indictment of its folly, and perhaps a prediction of its deserved demise.
The material evidence of their corruption and greed is no less compelling. Yet another direction of research leads us to discover the importance of amino acids and systemic enzymes, as well as natural plant extracts that heal us more profoundly than any factory synthesized drug can. See what researchers are finding of raspberry seeds, or about mineral supplements. Our natural bath therapy products now include genuine pure Himalayan Crystal Salt, which is fast becoming known for its overall health benefits. Achieving enlightenment (some call it ascension) requires that we integrate our physical, mental, spiritual, emotional and energetic bodies. Life Enthusiast aims to provide supplements that support such lifestyles. You can read the account of the early days of Life Enthusiast Co-op. We thought that we were ready to change to the world, but we were wrong. We needed to learn about pain and suffering first. In many ways, we did it to ourselves, even though we did not know it then.
Contemplate this quote about them, the people other than ourselves, those we disagree with:
Your society wants to condemn them. Your society would like to crucify them. Your society would like to lock them up. Your society would like to put them off in places where they can never get near any of you. Your society does not understand that they are your creation. As individuals, you have to accept responsibility for everything that’s interacting with you. Because it would not be interacting with you if you did not have an active vibration about it. This is really, really important. This means I cannot blame how I feel on my mate. I cannot blame how I feel on my children, or on my mother, or on my government, or on my society, or on my client, or on the other drivers around me. In other words, the experience that I’m having is my job. It’s all my creation. It’s all my responsibility. You say, “Oh, but it wasn’t my fault because I didn’t offer the vibration until they did that action, and after they did that action then I offered the vibration.” And we say, still, you are the only one that can change your vibration. And you say, “Oh, but if they’d behave differently, then I’d change my vibration.” We say, Oh, here we go again. How many decades of life experience within this body do you think it’s going to take before you finally convince yourself that you can’t get them to choose? They’re not going to hold you as their object of attention long enough. Pleasing you is not their job. You pleasing you is your job. You’ve got to find something redeeming in them so that you can be pleased. And when you find it, activate that in your vibration, and then they will show it to you. Abraham-Hicks, Phoenix, AZ – 3/23/02
Our longevity and sustained health are very much dependent on how balanced we manage our lives to be. We maintain a dynamic balance of conflicting needs, in seasonal shifts, and in a rhythm that responds to tides, day and night, breathing in and out, digesting and eliminating, contracting and relaxing. It is a constantly shifting terrain that must be supported in its magnificent dynamic balance. We are designed to cope with events that take us out of balance – and depending on our overall health – we recover from these assaults faster or slower. When our reserves become depleted, our bodies deteriorate, and illnesses begin appearing as if from external causes. It is our weakened immune, digestive, circulatory, or other body systems that allow these conditions to break through the homeostatic balance we are meant to maintain.
The support we need has many aspects – intake of nutrients, oxygen, water, and elimination of toxins and waste are the major issues. The effectiveness of this process is dependent on how we exercise and rest, how we eat, drink and breathe, and how we eliminate liquid and solid wastes. “The body is a complex organism that has the ability to heal itself – if only you listen to it and respond with proper nourishment and care.” (Prescription for Nutritional Healing). The first step of Natural Healing would be to make sure the body has the right amounts of nutrients like vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, phytochemicals, etc? To understand Natural Healing we must look back to 460 BC when Hippocrates, The Father of Medicine, was born. Hippocrates said, “Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.” Natural Healing is an art, and not an easy feat in today’s fast food society that has us eating foods that are grown in depleted soils, that are over-cooked, over-processed, or hormone injected and loaded with antibiotics.
Foods in our supermarkets can’t give the body what it needs, even if we eat only organically grown, raw vegetables and organically grown meats. The nutrients are simply not there. Today, supplementation is a necessity. Energetic healing forms such as Acupuncture, Chiropractic, and tools like Herbal Medicine, and Homeopathy, will, in the long run, be more successful in maintaining our health. With their help, we can support and restore the body to its natural state. Natural Healing approach has been losing ground to the industrial methods promoted by big business in agriculture and medicine, giving us refined foods, drugs, herbicides and pesticides, fertilizers, and a very unhealthy population in general. The philosophy that concentrates on symptom suppression and treats most issues as individual unconnected problems instead of a part of a whole has been the cause of much unnecessary suffering.
Healthy skepticism is a valuable scientific tool. Unfortunately, the career “debunkers” are NOT true “skeptics”, as a skeptic is always open to having the issue at hand proved to him/her. A “debunker” has already made up his/her mind, and will not even listen to or look at available data.” ~Louis X., physicist. It appears that “professional” skeptics and debunkers come from an attitude of intellectual superiority over their “gullible” fellow men… ~Ulla, www.paradisenow.net
Life Enthusiast is a dynamic entity that has a life of its own. It is a body of people working together towards a shared goal of a healthy and highly functioning lifestyle that provides enjoyment of every moment we get to spend on this planet. We are evolving together, discovering solutions to common problems, sharing ideas, finding better choices we all can make. Our website is a work in progress. We are continually adding products and services with one common theme: “restoring vitality to you and the planet”. It is a given that our day to day existence unless we are living an enlightened life already, is a slow (and sometimes fast) process of wearing our the wonderful body we have created by the time we were twenty.
We are all one.
Service to others is paramount.
Always come from an attitude of love.
There’s a lot of crazy stuff out there.
Love and light prevail.
We are working toward the goal of having all aspects of healthy living addressed both in theory and in practical support. We concentrate on issues where we can make the most difference. We focus on products that are not in the mainstream so that you may enjoy benefits otherwise not accessible anywhere else.
