HelloLife Diet Defense Frequently Asked Questions
What is Diet Defense?
Diet Defense is a liquid OTC formula that uses a multi-tiered approach to naturally relieve overactive appetite and craving symptoms and promote healthy weight control. HelloLife stabilizes natural active homeopathic ingredients into their organic purified ionized mineral water base, to ensure you enjoy relief from cravings and overactive appetite.
Is Diet Defense approved by the FDA?
Diet Defense is an FDA product listed natural medicine and uses an OTC formulation. The active homeopathic ingredients are officially recognized, as listed in the HPUS and Homeopathic Materia Medica.
The FDA has regulated homeopathic medicine since 1938 by means of the guidelines in the HPUS, as per the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. Said regulation is conducted in the same manner as that of nonprescription OTC drugs, according to The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM). Diet Defense is manufactured and packaged following the FDA's Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP).
How do I take Diet Defense?
Dosage and directions are included on the label. You can add liquid Diet Defense to a glass of purified water, or dispense directly into your mouth. See detailed instructions in picture below. Avoid contamination: Do not touch the dropper to anything other than the product. (fig. 1,2) When dispensing, squirt the homeopathic into your mouth without touching the dropper to your mouth. (fig. 3) If dispensing directly into mouth is not convenient, you can put the solution into a spoon or a glass of water. (fig. 4,5) Make sure to use non-metallic objects, as the metal can change the product's effectiveness. How to use image After opening: Store in a cool, dry place. Avoid direct sunlight, along with prolonged exposure to high temperatures.
How often do I take Diet Defense?
For optimal benefit, take Diet Defense consistently every day, one hour before meals or as often as needed.
How soon can I expect to see results from Diet Defense?
You can expect to see a noticeable improvement in your cravings and overactive appetite within just a few hours of taking your first Diet Defense dose. For many individuals, results will be apparent within a few hours of the first dose. Because every person is different, however, the exact time taken for relief is indefinable. Diet Defense functions best in a body free of underlying conditions, which can hinder the body's ability to achieve balance. A healthy lifestyle that observes proper nutrition and regular exercise is essential in order to experience the results of Diet Defense. HelloLife encourage you to take Diet Defense twice daily for 30 days to begin experiencing the results desired. If you cannot see improvement in the first 30 days, you are welcome to take advantage of their 60-day satisfaction guarantee and return the product. If you do see some improvement, however, they recommend that you stay with the program for 3-6 months to receive the desired results. Please see their 60-day return guideline.
How long does one bottle of Diet Defense last?
A single bottle of Diet Defense is two fluid ounces. The product's dosage is given according to weight. So, if you weigh 50+ lbs, each two-ounce bottle will last approximately one month for one person, depending on your individual health needs and usage.
How much Diet Defense will I need?
Each bottle of Diet Defense offers a one month supply for one adult. Children may need less, and multiple family members taking Diet Defense may need more than one bottle per month.
Can children take Diet Defense?
Yes, Diet Defense is OTC formulated for safe relief from cravings and overactive appetite in adults and children over age 2.
How safe is Diet Defense?
Diet Defense is made with natural ingredients and is , first and foremost, formulated to be safe. Diet Defense has no reported side effects or drug interactions, and may be used with other prescription or OTC medications. Diet Defense is safe for both adults and children 2 years of age and up.
Has Diet Defense been clinically tested?
The individual ingredients in Diet Defense have claims based on the Homeopathic Materia Medica. As a composite formulation, however, Diet Defense has not been clinically tested.
Can I safely take Diet Defense with medications?
The ingredients in Diet Defense are natural and safe, but if you are currently taking prescription medications, they recommend you consult your health care professional before use.
Is Diet Defense an herbal remedy?
Diet Defense is not an herbal remedy. Herbal remedies are based on the herb's use in traditional medicine, Whilst homeopathy uses the "law of similars." Herbs use larger quantities of the product per dose. Homeopathic medicines use minute doses of the substance to address the symptoms. Herbal substances are regulated as food, where as the FDA accepts homeopathic products as drugs.
What is the "law of similars?"
The "law of similars" is the idea that like relieves like. Homeopathy demonstrates that a substance that produces a certain set of symptoms in a healthy person can relieve the same symptoms in a sick person experiencing them. The homeopathic medicine is diluted to such minute doses that the ingredients are very safe.
What is "Natural Medicine?"
As a natural medicine, Diet Defense safely activates the body's natural relief and balance mechanisms, unlike many other OTC formulations that rely on chemical responses to activate or block healing responses, and come with notable side effects, as indicated per their product indications.
Natural medicine is safe, and the ingredients in Diet Defense are regulated by the FDA according to the guidelines for OTC homeopathic formulation. Whilst "natural" implies indications about the ingredients (Diet Defense does contain natural active homeopathic ingredients), "natural medicine" more accurately refers to how the medicine works.
What is Integrated Medicine?
Integrated medicine is a functional, balanced approach to wellness. Rather than relying solely on conventional methods, such as prescription drugs and surgery, or alternative methods like acupuncture and homeopathy, integrated medicine recognizes that the two can work together for optimal results. Health care providers who practice integrated medicine will use methods such as homeopathy in complement with more intense and/or invasive treatments.
What is homeopathy?
Homeopathy is an officially recognized medicinal therapy that uses safe, naturally occurring substances to relieve symptoms of self-limiting conditions in the body. Observing the homeopathic dilution process per regulatory guidelines, they formulate the active ingredients in Diet Defense for safe relief of overactive appetite and craving symptoms.
What is the homeopathic dilution process?
Homeopathic Medicines are believed to be more effective when its active ingredient is diluted. This is the minimum dose approach to homeopathy. The purpose of potency is to dilute the product until it can do no harm to a person. Homeopathic drug potency is indicated by such terms as "12X," 24X," and "LM1." These refer to the amount of times and by what ratio the base substance has been diluted.
What is HPUS?
The Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS) is a compilation of standards for the components and preparation of homeopathic drugs. It has been in continuous publication since 1897, and became the official U.S. homeopathic regulatory guideline in 1938, as stated in the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
The HPUS is compiled by the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia Convention of the United States (HPCUS), which is a non-governmental, non-profit scientific organization of experts trained and experienced in the field of homeopathy. The HPCUS works closely with the FDA and U.S. homeopathic organizations.
Diet Defense's active homeopathic ingredients are listed in the HPUS, and are therefore officially recognized.
What is "Materia Medica"?
"Materia Medica" (Latin) refers to a body of information about medical knowledge. At HelloLife, they refer to specific Materia Medica that contain information on homeopathic ingredients. In general, they refer to William Boericke's Homeopathic Materia Medica.
The active homeopathic ingredients in Diet Defense are recognized by such long-standing Materia Medica, and thereby are not required to undergo the same safety and interaction testing as new OTC drugs.
What is purified ionized mineral water?
Purified ionized mineral water uses organic trace minerals to supplement the minerals necessary for enzyme functions in the body. This can speed up cellular metabolism and support your natural repair processes. The purified ionized mineral water in Diet Defense is an effective stabilizing agent and catalyst for the active homeopathic ingredients, as opposed to alcohol, which is common to most homeopathic preparations but irritating to your system.
How is Diet Defense different from conventional products?
Diet Defense is intended to safely relieve overactive appetite and craving symptoms AND promote optimal overall health, Whilst conventional products typically address only the symptoms, and usually with negative side effects.
Is Diet Defense a cure?
Diet Defense is a natural medicine that works quickly to relieve overactive appetite and craving symptoms, but it is not a cure. Instead, Diet Defense is intended as a component of a healthy lifestyle, safely relieving your symptoms so you can focus on the big picture of your health and life. Choose whole, fresh foods, clean, pure water; and plenty of positive thought and movement, and you will naturally increase the effectiveness of Diet Defense and over time find yourself naturally relieved of excess appetite and cravings.
What are symptoms?
Symptoms are the aspects of illness that you can see and feel; they are the way your body responds to an underlying problem. Although they have a tendency to be negative manifestations, they are actually good in the sense that they are your body's way of telling you what is wrong. Diet Defense is intended to help relieve the negative symptoms you are experiencing. When you are no longer hindered by uncomfortable symptoms, you can concentrate on helping restore your body to its healthy balance.
Is Diet Defense a drug?
Because the ingredients in Diet Defense meet the "Criteria for Eligibility of Drugs for Inclusion in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States(HPUS)," and that the HPUS is an officially recognized compendium of homeopathic drugs by the FDA, Diet Defense is considered an OTC homeopathic drug. Therefore, it has to comply with the Labeling Guidelines of the FDA. Homeopathic products have been considered drug products since 1938, as stated in the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.
It is important to note that, although Diet Defense is technically considered a homeopathic drug (remedy) by law, its ingredients are natural and safe for supporting your body's healthy balance. Diet Defense is not intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of any disease.
Will this product cause me to experience detoxification symptoms?
The purified ionized mineral water base of this product is OTC formulated to initiate a seamless detoxification process, but some sensitive bodies may experience initial detoxification effects. As minerals begin to activate enzymes and chelate toxins and metals, sensitive bodies may experience mild acute symptoms of sores in the mouth (similar to ones caused by eating excessive salty or acidic foods) or loose stools. Symptoms should last only 24 hours.
Help your body through this process it by adding more fibrous raw fruits and vegetables to your diet during this time.
Does Diet Defense come with side effects?
According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), a systematic review found homeopathic products such as Diet Defense to be generally safe and unlikely to cause severe adverse reactions when taken as directed. Diet Defense contains no alcohol, making it superior to many other OTC homeopathic formulations in that regard.
While some individuals express concern about homeopathic aggravation (temporary worsening of symptoms after taking a homeopathic medicine), there is little evidence for it in clinical studies. Regardless of Diet Defense's safety, it is always important to inform your health care provider about any self-medication you may use.
What do I need to consider if I'm thinking about using homeopathy?
There are five important points to consider and act on, as stated by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM): First, homeopathy is not a replacement for proven conventional care or a visit to your health care professional. Second, research clinical studies conducted around the homeopathic remedies for the health condition you are trying to treat. Third, thoroughly acquaint yourself with any homeopathic practitioner you may visit. Fourth, women who are pregnant or nursing, or those thinking of using homeopathy for a child, should first consult with their health care professional. Fifth, inform all of your health care providers about any complementary and/or alternative practices you use.
If you or a loved one is struggling with anxiety, please know you're far from alone. Currently, in just the United States, over 40 million adults (a staggering 18% of the population!) are living with some form of anxiety disorder – anxiety severe or persistent enough it consistently hinders one or more aspects of a person's life.
Different from the normal, natural fears all people experience from time to time, for someone with an anxiety problem, ongoing battles with anxiety can make even the most basic tasks overwhelming. Making phone calls, attending social gatherings, asking questions in class, stating opinions in meetings, shopping at the grocery store, shaking hands with a new acquaintance, even deciding what to wear in the morning – things which many do without a second thought – can cause intense, debilitating fear for people with this problem. Worse yet? As they begin avoiding the situations they fear, sufferers often end up feeling alienated and depressed as well.
Despite what some un-informed people might think, this kind of anxiety is a real and serious problem. Anxiety can affect your work, your schooling, your relationships, and even your ability to function as an individual. The condition is an incredibly frustrating and deeply impactful one, and it's not something you should "just have to deal with!" The only question: how best to fight back? Unfortunately, the high costs and the risk of side-effects with some prescription medications make many sufferers wary of treatment. Anxiety over anxiety medication – they'd laugh at the irony, if it wasn't so sad!
