One more thing, how did the get our full names and addresses, i know im not listed. so has anyone else bought products from tv adds or signed up to get info signed on any products?
And my question also is 'where did they get my details?'
I too, did a search and find the special 'Dead Sea' stuff is common old seaweed/kelp from the sea in the northern hemisphere. Good stuff in its own right, not maybe in this marketed format.
If people are really looking for better value there is very good info from a psychologist in Australia called Judith McFadden (Diet No More) and a program she calls NECTAR (meaning Natural Eating, Control Theory and Results). I had investigated and purchased the program for a client. I am not sure if she used it...I did and do! It alerted me to my own 'fat thinking' and by changing to a 'natural eater' bingo...results I wanted
On the Dr Atkinson stuff there are other references on the net of similar negatively and faked Dr references and that the product made them feel sick and did not produce the results as advertised. Take care and be aware
Gday all... well guess what... I gotem...
But, you know how it says on the flyer: You Can Eat Anything You Want And the Weight Will Just Drop Off You!" Well, then you get sent them and it says you gotta eat really healthy and do heaps of exercise. Fair enough... I thought that would be a good idea anyway. So I've been using them for a couple of weeks and I've lost a couple of kilos... but that could be because I'm going to the gym 3 days a week and have reduced my calorie intake a lot. I wasn't that big to begin with, I weighed 60 kgs and now I weigh 58. I'm going to ask for my money back, I don't think they have done anything for me. Will let you know how I go.
So please please please let us all know whether the patches work.
I just got the offer for the patches .Im in Australia too.
MONEY BACK GUARANTEE???
How would they know that Im truthfull in the first place
(About telling them the right weight)In the order form
they don't even ask you how much you weight.So it
makes me think!.What if Im not happy with the
product?.How will I prove that I didnt lost 5,10 or 20
kg(when I ask for my money back???).The patches are
made of sea Kelp (is good because
has iodine that stimulates the thyroid gland and speeds
up your metabolism so you burn more,but carefull !!Too
much can cose hart failure.READ ON INTERNET
ABOUT IODINE and THYROID gland.ALTERNATIVE IS
TO BUE deep seaKELP FROM PHARMACY!!!
I just received the flyer for Dr Atkinsons "magical" patches.
Please do a google search for Lance Thomas Atkinson, Michael John Anthony Van Essen or bodylogical. Lance Thomas Atkinson seems to be the same Dr referred in the flyers.
Check out some of the Dutch websites though you may not be able to read them, some have faces next to their responses, and quite a few are not happy.
the return address I got is slightly different to the Singapore one posted, the PO Box is different.
If these patches were so wonderful you'd think they would be on A Current Affair. Also I think they got my information from when I joined Weight Watchers because I didn't tick the box thats says "I do not wish to recieve any further information", which is normally very small and towards the bottom.
All this seems similar to other "exclusive offers" I have received before, this time it's patches, last time it was pills.
Don't waste your money, because very often you may not get your money back, because they make sure you can't find them to ask, ask why there is no website on the flyer, or direct phone number.
If it seems to good to be true it normally is.
My partner and I both tried these Dead Sea Patches through info sent in the mail..... THEY DONT WORK! Firstly, the article sent said that you can eat anything you want and no exercise was required, then you receive the patches with a menu plan and exercise routine to follow????? Neverthless, we tried the recommended plan and not a single thing happened! Do not purchase these, they are a rip off! P.S Michael actually gained weight with this!!!!!!!

I received them, there were several references to sugested diet & exercise. I tried them for 3 weeks, but didn't alter my diet as the original advert said you didn't have too. Remember, YES I want to reclaim my figure, guaranteed to lose a minimum of 3kgs(more probally 5kg) per week. I should not take part in any diet or exercise regime whilst using the patch, I can wait to make sure that I do not put one ounce back on, now or ever and for any reason, I am not entirely satisfied I can claim a refund no questions asked. Plus Dr's personal guarantee in writing that you will loose 12kgs in 4 weeks and stay that way or he will give you your money back.
I lost nothing, infact I gained some weight!!!. I only noticed one thing - they curbed my appetite, one day I went the whole day with out eating and was not hungry, this is not healthy though!!! I sent them back, from NZ to Singapore I wanted to send it registered so I would have proof of delivery but that was going to cost $80 so I sent standard mail which still cost $25!
Anyway I received a letter 6 weeks later from International Fulfilment Services stating I would receive a refund in 1-2 months but it actually came through the same week I received the letter.
So by all means try them, I wish you all the sucesses, they may work for you - I have always battled with my weight. Rest assured they do stand by the Money Back Guarantee. But this has taught me a lesson, if it sounds to good to be true - it probally is!!!
I received my patches in the mail about a week ago. I also looked previously on the net for infor regarding another product I brought from the same company which were aqua svelt slimming drops. These instructed me to have 6 drops 3 times a day for 1 month. I took over this dose and at the end of the month still had one full bottle left, so convinced myself that these didn't work because i didn't take the right dosage. I returned the empty bottles and got a letter about the patches and a letter about my refund on the same day. I was sucked in, thought well I wasn't sure if id get the money back on the drops but I did so what do I have to lose? I'll just get another refund. So far I've been too scared to weigh myself in case like with the drops I put weight on. I've even thought maybe they do the opposite so that people like us will keep on trying to lose the weight that their miracle cures keep adding!
But hey, I'm still trying. Sad, but true. Hope to hear that someone gets some success, I too was also disappointed about the diet you had to stick to. I'm a chef and so my eating patterns are erratic enough as it is. I don't over eat much but I eat at weird times, food thats prob not that great for me and theres no way I can stick to a meal planned diet.
Glad im not the only one, good luck you guys.
There are other products that can up your metabolism, though - I'm in California, and I found a supplement called Metabolic Advantage Thyroid Formula (made by Enzymatic Therapy) at my local health food store. Not sure if it's available in the U.K., but it might be worth a look.
about A$120 down the girgler...along with Gloria Marshal $500....endless supply of dieting books...$300.....Liteneasy...good but expensive if you have a family..Weight Watchers....good but expensive...the list goes on.....THE ONLY THING THAT WORKS IS STOP EATING THOSE FOODS HIGH IN FAT AND SUGARS...& EXERCISE! So simple but so difficult...don't waste your money on these patches.....I think they are another gimic.
