If you are not familiar with Dr. Mehmet Oz you have not been paying attention to the health issues currently at hand. Dr. Oz has been seen on Oprah as well as many health programs on television and magazines. Dr. Mike Roizen is the chief medical officer at the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute.
Dr Oz was in Portland, Oregon at the Oregon Health and Science University’s Center for Health and Healing to give 15 minute health screenings along with others from OHSU. He is touring the country highlighting the importance of regular checkups and preventive medicine.
To read the entire list of the tips they are giving in the Oregonian please read here. It is very informative and very easy for all of us to follow.
HBO ( Home Box Office) has just started a new special that is so full of valuable health information I do not know where to begin. They are trying to help slow down and or stop our nations obesity epidemic. They have teamed up with some of the most health knowledgeable doctors and persons in our country to share information that could save our lives and our nation from the ever rising health cost. We are spending too much money on health care after we are sick and not enough on prevention and education.
Please read on with me while I post from this special or go to HBO.com and please watch the episodes yourself and begin your journey to a healthier you or family member. The more we know the more we can help ourselves.
Thank you HBO and all of the contributors to this very important message of health. We needed this.
To begin reading with me start here.
The following is a letter (email) we received a couple of days ago from a customer that has been able to get relief from Whole Body Vibration in a way we never even thought of. WBV is helping with vertigo. Below is the wonderful email we received and we wanted to share with others in case they too could benefit from WBV. Thank you Ginger for sharing.
This is a testimonial regarding the Soloflex Whole Body Vibrator Board.
As a child, I had many inner ear infections. As a senior, I began having episodes of severe vertigo. This is caused by residues of sludge that cling to the tiny hairs in the semi-circular canals, (called canoliths), and break off causing terrifying vertigo lasting only moments but longer lasting nausea.
I began using the Soloflex Vibrator Board twice a week for 10 minutes at the strongest setting. This causes the sludge to stay in suspension and disallowing canoliths to form. Once I got so busy that I failed to do the Vibrator Board for a month. The canoliths formed and broke off and I had a miserable, violent episode of vertigo. This simple practice for many years now has done what modern medicine has failed to do in treating this type of vertigo.
Here is a letter we received from one of our wonderful long time customers. We wanted to share his thoughts with you. Thank you again Bill for taking the time with write us. It truly means a lot.
I wanted to take the time to write you and thank you for your great products, your great support, and for your prior professional sponsorship.
I bought my first Soloflex in 1987 and my Rockit in the first year it was released, and have used them religiously for many years. It has helped me compete in multiple competitions, including: Martial Arts, Boxing, the “Survival of the Fittest”, Motorcycle Racing, Ski Racing as well throughout my Search and Rescue volunteer work.
Soloflex sponsored me when I first started skiing professionally, back in 2000. Since then, and thanks to the fine Soloflex products I was able to win the “Professional World Cup” series in 2001, 2002 and 2004, and the Mountain Dew racing series in 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004, and retire from professional competition as “World Champion”.
Now, after a serious knee injury sustained while skiing two seasons ago, I am rehabilitating my knee with the Soloflex Muscle Machine and the Rockit. I have progressed beyond the sports-rehab centers to performing rehab in my home gym and have seen fantastic results, which I attribute to your great products.
I want to thank Soloflex for being a huge part of my training, and for backing me during my rise to become champion, and upon my relocation to Portland, Oregon in the next year or so, I hope to thank you in person at your Oregon facility.

We have received the funnest email from a long time customer recently and I feel like sharing it with you. He is a delight to talk to and has also sent us some great photos, that his wife took, that I would also like to share. He looks great for any age.
Here are the emails……
You have any promotional use, quite aside from mere and exceedingly mild curiosity, in a pix of a naked-to-the-waist, firm and muscled (but not a body builder) 76-year-old male who credits 20 years of Soloflex usage three times a week for his appearance and, at last report, good health? That is I (me). If not, NO NEED TO REPLY. If yes, I will require my wife’s technological skills to take the pix on her irritating I-phone and transmit it on this infernal computer, so there would be some delay. I am David N. Mitchell, and I live in Santa Fe, N.M., and am very old. The question arose in my increasingly demented mind when I took off my t-shirt upon arising this morning, looked in the bathroom mirror and said to my 5-foot-9, 156-pound self, “self, that’s pretty good for a codger.” I then began my (your) machine workout, which took 90 minutes and still needs three sets of tricep effort to be complete.
all of which is far more than anybody making a living at Soloflex should have to read. So don’t, Oops, too late. Sorry. As the cliche has it, have a good day. I (we) must go to a neighborhood party this evening, a fate not to be wished, at least by me, and which precludes a nice day.
Courtesy of my amused but tolerant and skilled spouse, here are a couple of photos, taken today, Monday, of me at age 76. Looking at these, I realize that I am not remotely as lovely as I thought I was, and I will not be emotionally damaged if you and your fellow employees of Soloflex have a good laugh before destroying them and sending me a nice, thoughtful, courteous, well-meaning but in-the-end untrue thank- you note. I fear the dog, who was at my feet during this absurd posturing, did not show up in full fur, but he still looked a lot better than I do.
I noted to him in my email that we were most interested in his photos and so glad I did. I want to publicly thank Mr. Mitchell for taking the time to use the Soloflex and to share it with us. He is proof that if you use it you will not loose it. Exercising is the best medicine we can offer ourselves. Keep up the great work and enjoy your many years to come. Thank you wife too for her amazing photography skills.
By now you probably know that strength training is one of the most important things you need to do for yourself. It is the one thing that will help you through everything you do in your life…for your entire life. The changes we make to our bodies now, will reflect in our overall health later in life.
Strength training(www.mayoclinic.com/health/strength-training/) is achieved many different ways; none being more important than muscle strengthening. Your muscles must be worked for you to see results. Use it or loose it has never rang more true. With the Soloflex Whole Body Vibration (WBV), you’ll be able to implement the next step to your exercise routine that will effectively change the way you workout.
Strength training is not isolated to any one type of muscle building;(www.postbulletin.com/newsmanager/templates/localnews-story/) from climbing stairs, to lifting weights and stretching. These are all parts of a training program. Your program should include opening with a light stretch for flexibility and mobility, and then lead into lifting weights or resistance training to build muscle and endurance. Finishing up with a cardio routine, as this will get your heart rate elevated, making your heart healtheir while buring calories at the same time.
A good workout program will be done 5 days a week, with traditional training taking up to 1-2 hours per day. This is a lot of time! There is an answer to this problem; the Soloflex Whole Body Vibration (WBV) (www.wbv.net.au/documents/wbv.pdf/)
When you add WBV to your routine you can cut your workout time down to only 10-15 minutes per day and do all of the important exercises on your routine. Nothing needs to be missed. WBV will add benefits to any exercise; stretching, weight lifting, or resistance training, or cardio. Vibration technology forces the muscles to react by contracting and relaxing involuntarily; causing an enormous increase in blood flow to muscles, tendons, ligaments, and tissues.
NASA and the Russian Space Program(www.vibrationz-thelawofattraction.blogspot.com/) started using WBV years ago to help pilots muscles from atrophying while in space. Soon after, trainers and doctors began to see the great benefits WBV could offer professional athletes(www.thefreelibrary.com/whole-body-vibration-helps-athletes/). Professional sport franchises have widely and enthusiastically embraced the concept, including the:
Not only can WBV help reduce the time a workout takes it also aids in faster muscle growth, better flexibility, better blood circulation, reduction of sore muscles, improved balance, even help heal athletic related injuries. The Soloflex WBV gives you less time working out, better results, it’s easy to use , and safe: what more could you want?
Price has, until now, been the most difficult thing about a WBV Platform. They have only been available to professional athletes, government industries, and celebrities like Madonna and George Clooney because they cost so much to purchase. Commercial units can run as high as $12,000! The average person can’t afford that.
We proudly offer the Soloflex WBV Platform at an affordable price so this very important conditioning can be available to all. The Soloflex WBV Platform is only $445. Yes, Soloflex had done it again. We have brought home weight lifting and resistance training to homes for over 30 years with the best built, safest home equipment on the market. With over one million Classic Soloflex machines, one hundred thousand Rockits, and two hundred-and-fifty thousand Adjustable Hand Weight Systems sold to date, Soloflex has given people the best opportunities for strength training on their terms and time. Now with the WBV you can continue with your Soloflex routine or any other routine you may have in a lot less time with better results that only WBV can offer.
When you begin using WBV you will find the vibration levels that best suit your needs. The range of vibration should run between 25hz – 60 hz(www.gymequipmentssports.blogspot.com/) for optimum results. The Soloflex WBV comes with an adjustable rheostat so you can find your perfect level. Over time you may up the hertz or always remain comfortable with the level you are at.
The Soloflex WBV Platform is built to last. Made of 3″ steel tubing legs, thick urethane molded foam pad over 15 ply wood that can hold up to 1200lbs, the highest quality motor and rheostat; just like the Classic Soloflex, you’ll be using your WBV for years to come!
The size of the platform is another reason to look at Soloflex. The platform is 41″ long, 10″ wide, 5″ high, and weighs 31lbs. This is much larger than most other vibration units on the market, which allows you to perform a wide range of exercises including Pilates, Yoga, general stretching.
A weight resistance routine, as mentioned earlier, is the most important addition to your strength training. Soloflex sells the very best Adjustable Hand Weights on the market to aid in your goals. They have a very comfortable soft rubber hand grip with rubber plating on the weights themselves to help with safety and sound as well as overall visual quality.
Soloflex is also the only company to offer the vibration motor separately so it can be attached to almost any surface you choose. If you already own equipment and want to increase gains and benefits from that equipment that is not a problem. The WBV attachment motor can be attached to workout benches, chairs, any workout equipment. Soloflex sell the motor to many existing Soloflex product owners. The Classic Soloflex, The Rockit, and the Soloflex workout bench are all perfect candidates for a WBV attachment motor.
Any of the Soloflex products available can be purchased www.soloflex.com or call 1-800-547-8802. Also, please check out our new blog at http://soloflex.com.

I am very much pleased with the results after using your WBV platform. One word to sum it up? Improvement. Yes the difference between how I used to feel and how I feel right now, I own a Concept 2 Model D Rowing machine (which sometimes used as a “men’s valet”) your WBV platform and dumb bells. Your price is excellent, quality so far is great. My rating as of today has to be EXCELLENT. Thank you! You got it right with this product.
