'Anti-Aging Bottled Water' - V.E.S Spirits Founder Darryl Tombleson Creates A Unique Brand - European Fitness & Health Reports April 15, 2019: Top Quote "A Scientifically Proven 'Wonder Water' Is To Revitalise The Health Conscious And Assist The Medical Sectors". "With Third World Countries Being Another Focus Of Our Water Production Supply". "Everyone Deserves The Benefits Of A Mineral & Nutrient Enriched Water". John Anders Of World Health & Science Investigates End Quote One of the worlds most crucial resources is water, with bottled water sales escalating to new heights internationally, the US alone being one of the largest consumers, on average individuals purchase over 42 gallons, (or 158 litres annually). As a bottled water fanatic, imagine my joy when 'V.E.S Enriched Creations' developed what can only be best described as a 'wonder water', a water that invigorates the body,mind and complexion all in the one sip. Over 90 minerals and nutrients combine to create a scientifically proven ingredient base that essentially acts as an anti-aging enriched mineral water. Let me explain in a little more scientific detail,('I hear the yawn folks'), I promise to become technical just for a moment. Cellular senescence happens when the cell ages and its function decreases, it stops dividing and changes activity, this is proportionally attributed to DNA modification, DNA damage is the primary cause of aging. Specific natural compounds have been combined with V.E.S's enriched water that help combat dehydration more effectively than filtered tap or spring water, while assisting in the maintenance of the genome integrity-DNA repair,(proteins engulf and protect the damaged DNA and 'accompany' it until the damage can be repaired). "I wanted to create a genuine 'super water', says Tombleson, I set about sourcing a natural, organic, nutrient dense extract as my central ingredient,(neutralised its earthy essence) and combined it with a mineral . . .

The oncology centre at Netcare Pinehaven Hospital in Krugersdorp has considerably bolstered its cancer treatment options, with the introduction of high dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy, an internally delivered form of radiation therapy for the treatment of various kinds of cancers. “HDR brachytherapy involves the application of a radioactive source in close proximity to malignant tumours in order to destroy them or reduce their size. Used to treat a range of cancers including cervical, uterus, endometrial, and oesophageal, the introduction of this technology at Netcare Pinehaven Hospital provides oncologists with an important tool in the fight against the disease,” says Dr Cindy Aitton, head of Netcare’s Cancer Care division. Dr Paul Paradza, one of the oncologists at the hospital’s oncology centre, says HDR brachytherapy is highly effective, and can be used as a stand-alone treatment in suitable cases, or in conjunction with other cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, surgery and external beam radiotherapy, depending on each particular case. “HDR brachytherapy may, furthermore, be indicated after cancer surgery, to reduce the risk of the reappearance of cancers in high-risk patients, as well as palliatively, to ease problems such as cough, shortness of breath and pain in patients with advanced lung cancer,” adds Dr Paradza. “The HDR brachytherapy unit at Netcare Pinehaven Hospital is equipped with a cutting-edge SagiNova HDR Afterloader, which enables clinicians to better spare tissue around diseased sites, and improve local control of disease.” Dr Paradza explains that the HDR radioactive source is placed inside a slender tube called an applicator, and this is computer-directed to the diseased site to be treated. The source has a high radioactive strength delivering a powerful, targeted dose of ionising radiation safely to a localised area to destroy cancer cells. “The introduction of HDR brachytherapy brings with it a number of benefits for . . .
