LifeWave Energy Enhancer Patch
LifeWave Products
Written by Maff     October 11, 2007    
I was contacted by a member of the medical staff at LifeWave towards the end of 2006 after they had come across The Environmental Illness Resource in a web search. After visiting the LifeWave web site and reading various bits and pieces on the web I was skeptical of the claims, but intrigued. Suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome and environmental illness has taught me not to rule anything out that might just help me to feel better. With this in mind I decided to give the LifeWave patches a go, despite the high cost, and have since tried a number of different patches.

The Energy Enchancer patches come in the form of 2 small patches of different colours, one to be applied to the left side of the body and one to the right. The patches can be placed in a handful of strategic locations depending on the activities that the users engages in. There are different prescribed locations for long distance running and weightlifting for example. The patches come with a glossy booklet explaining all of this with handy diagrams.

The patches themselves are the size of an average coin and compose of clear plastic with a central area containing the magic ingredients. It must be stressed that nothing actually enters the body from the patches, they supposedly work on similar principals to acupuncture, using the body's energy system; "Software for the Body" as the marketing goes. It is suggested that the Energy Enhancer patch stimulates production of carnitine in the body. Carnitine is an amino acid that transports fatty acids into the mitochondria where they are utilized in energy production.

No matter how they work, I can report from my personal experience that they DO work, and very effectively. After applying the Energy Enhancer patches for the first time I quickly began to feel highly energized. I felt more energetic physically and a lot brighter mentally. This was maintained for the 12 hours I wore the patches and for some time afterwards. Skeptics may suggest this was just placebo effect but I would have to say the effect was far too powerful for that and was repeated on subsequent times that I wore the patches.

There are only 2 drawbacks to the Energy Enhancer I would mention. First, they did end up keeping me awake at night as I was TOO energized. This may well be just me as I tend to have the same experience with anything that has an energizing/stimulant effect. The major drawback is that the Energy Enhancer (and all LifeWave patches) cost so much. I have no doubt the Energy Enhancer works but for me it is not the only health product I would buy every month so the cost is a little prohibitive.

In conclusion, I would definitely recommend that any body suffering from fatigue should give LifeWave Energy Enhancer patches a try, as well as those who want increased performance in sports. You really have to try them for yourself to appreciate what they can do!
