COPING WITH STRESS  (related articles under "Natural Balance")



Extract from Irene Stein's Book - "Health for Life"


Stress, in the right quantities, does not lead to ill health; on the contrary it can be very energizing.  However, when the pressures of life exceed a certain limit (which varies from person to person), anxiety or depression can result.  "Stress management" is a modern 'buzz' phrase, but it makes sense, if we are suffering, to try to remove any unnecessary stresses from our lives and to put aside time every day for relaxation.  However, there are some circumstances, for example bereavement, divorce, even Christmas, when it is extremely difficult to 'manage' the stress and beleaguered may need help if they are to survive the experience without suffering too much mental trauma.  Relief from depression and anxiety is a commonly reported result of taking Irene and a welcome relief it is when the whole world seems bleak and black. 


I recently received a heart-rending letter from 64 year old Iris Phillips, who comes from Pembrokeshire.  She wrote to tell us of her ordeal when she discovered that her daughter had been diagnosed with terminal cancer.  I quote from her moving letter:  "I was informed that my daughter was diagnosed with terminal cancer, which was non operable.  It was a terrible shock to the system and I'm sure that had I not been taking Irene when I was going through that terrible, worrying time, I would not have come through it as well as I did.  My daughter is 37 years old and has two lovely daughters of ten and seven.  I have been staying with them all the time she was in hospital.  I am convinced that Irene helped me and I hope that it will do the same for my daughter."


Pamela Clare knows all about cancer too.  As a Marie Curie nurse, she is under considerable pressure as she told us:  "I must tell you what a difference Irene has made to me.  I have a very stressful job, working at night, and therefore find the winter months rather tiring and usually get quite run down and depressed.  But since I started taking Irene, I have a spring in my step.  I am also noticing that I am much more content.  I still get very tired but feel able to cope."


Mary Sweetnam from Dublin was injured when three bombs went off in the centre of the city in 1974.  People died beside her.  After a period in hospital, she eventually recovered enough to go back to work and attempted to resume a normal life.  But it wasn't easy.  For many years Mary just got along; she got married and became preoccupied with her family.  Years went by and Mary was never particularly well, but her problems were non-specific and of a psychosomatic nature.  She was depressed and had difficulty going out.  Her husband tried to understand her problems, but others just could not empathise with her.  Mary was treated for a variety of ailments, until one day a doctor visiting her local practice told her that all her difficulties could be attributed to post traumatic stress syndrome.


It was all very well to have a diagnosis which made sense, but Mary still did not have a remedy until she read about Irene.  Hoping that the formulation might hold an answer for her symptoms, she ordered a three month supply.  Now, after three months, Mary says "I'm more interested in my home and I'm actually going out with my husband.  My sense of well being has perceptibly improved.  Infact, my husband has seen such a change, he's now trying Irene too!"



                                                    STRESSED & SEXED OUT


  • The more stress endured the greater the need for optimum levels of vitamins, minerals and amino acids to avoid becoming tired, sluggish and possibly quite ill. This is because stress weakens the immune system, resulting in more colds and coughs and in some cases chronic fatigue syndrome, ulcers, arthritis, allergies, cancer and heart attacks. The loss of sexual virility or impotence in men (and women) is another consequence of severe stress.

  • The remedy is Royal Jelly – the food of queen bees! For many centuries it has been recognized as good for health, well-being and fertility in many different cultures! What industrious worker bees collect to extend the life and maintain the prodigious fertility of their queen bees is evidently also rich in nutrients for human consumption (more so than honey) and should combat the ravages of stress-related health problems. Experience shows that it does.

  • Irene Stein has perfected a Royal Jelly formula, Irene, and observed its astonishing benefits for over 30 years. Irene only uses fresh Royal Jelly, flown in from China, as it is more nutritious and is enhanced with premium grade herbs – such as Korean Ginseng, Echinacea, Damiana and Saw Palmetto (for improved effectiveness). These added herbal extracts and tinctures are known for their health benefits and aphrodisiac properties. Moreover, masters in herbal remedies, biochemistry and homeopathy have skilfully increased the potency and capacity for body-absorption of these vital ingredients.

  • The Ginseng component in the Irene formula is recommended by “Daily Health News” (published by Bottom Line), in an article written by Carole Jackson in the 22 March 2005 newsletter: “Ginseng may be the patriarch of herbs.  It has been used across the globe for everything from boosting sexual desire to easing childbirth, improving memory and increasing energy.  To this day, it is sold in Germany specifically as an aid to sexual function.  In the US, Ginseng root is popularly touted as a way to beat stress, improve vigour and simply feel better.  According to clinical herbalist Douglas Schar, DipPhyt, MNIMH, who practices in London and Washington DC: “Ginseng is an adaptogen.  That means it can help increase your resistance to physical, chemical, mental or biological stress”.  The key word to note is stress! Technically, stress is a challenge above and beyond what your body is used to.  Furthermore, Irene Stein only uses in her formula the carefully preserved premium grade Red Korean Ginseng with an official stamp of approval, because this more mature root develops Peptic Acids, Ginsenosides, Adenosine and Manganese compounds which stimulates insulin production in diabetics and contains anti-oxidants (not found in the white roots).  Her trade secret methodology in the production of this formula maximizes the potency and absorption of all the active ingredients.  This explains the often dramatic and wide spectrum of health conditions beneficially affected, apart from the aphrodisiac and anti-stress features.

  • How does it work? Scientists have discovered that Royal Jelly stimulates the adrenal glands to produce Cortin and Adrenaline, which increase metabolism and sexual function and that Royal Jelly contains the male and female sex hormones. Ginseng, for example, improves alertness, relaxation, appetite, vitality and alleviates depression. Echinacea is a natural antibiotic. The synergistic interaction of all the ingredients maximize the benefits.

   A headline in the Jersey Evening Post read: “We discovered the secret of fatigue-free travel.” After describing Irene Stein as “the Queen Bee of Royal Jelly” they add that “Irene’s unique liquid Royal Jelly preparation is a completely natural formulation which delivers multiple benefits including increased stamina, improved concentration and faster recovery rates – all of which are of particular concern to those driving long distances or undertaking protracted journeys by plane, train or boat".

    “This is obviously no ordinary vitamin supplement. Clients have reported results ranging from accelerated recovery rates after surgical operations through to the alleviation of chronic symptoms of (amongst others) arthritis, back pain and hay-fever, which previously could only be treated with anti-inflammatory drugs.”


    “Business News” (a publication from the Midlands in England) wrote about Irene and ‘Executive Stress,’ noting that “stress-related illness probably accounts for more lost working days than any other condition, since it crops up in so many guises.” Yet Irene, backed up by scientific analysis and a plethora of testimonial and anecdotal evidence, is they say due to the product containing “practically every vitamin, mineral and amino acid required to enhance health.”


   British Airways” BUSINESS LIFE In-flight magazine gave travellers information about  “Royal Relief” with the help of Irene, “shown in lab tests to be ten times as potent as Royal Jelly on its own.” They also carried the product to be used by those who want to experience “less travel fatigue and less jet-lag.”



Stress is a bi-word for most business executives.  You need mental agility, stamina and energy that would leave most other people gasping.  The more stress we endure, the greater our need for optimum levels of vitamins, minerals and amino acids, to avoid become tired, sluggish and possibly quite ill.  How many collegues or workers do you know who are burned out? Stress-related illness probably accounts for more lost working days than any other condition, since it crops up in so many guises. 

The Irene Formulation combines powerful, natural ingredients that have been used as health foods by many different cultures for centuries.  Irene combines fresh Royal Jelly, flown in directly from China with premium quality Ginseng and Echinacea.  Research by master bio-chemists has shown that this formulation is ten times more potent than Royal Jelly alone.  Furthermore, analysis has revealed that the formulation contains practically every vitamin, mineral and amino acid necessary to enhance health. 

Royal Jelly has traditionally been taken by the Chinese to enhance their mental capabilities and to slave off ageing, so that they remain mentally alert and physically active for many years longer than their Western counterparts.  Research shows that Royal Jelly acts as an adaptogen, making  this supplement helpful for people under stress - with a well functioning system, you will be less likely to fall apart from common ailments that are sneezed across your desk almost daily. 

Founder Irene Stein, at 66 years old, is a glowing testimony to the product she developed.  She works a gruelling twelve hour day, still packs in a game of tennis and is currently coping with a stress load that would sink most mere mortals! 




Dear Irene,

I wanted to share my experiences of the Royal Jelly with you and to thank you for the differences it has made to my life. To sum it up – I feel absolutely fantastic since starting the Royal Jelly and Stabilized Oxygen and after one month started to notice the differences.  My hair condition has drastically improved and I have been losing weight slowly but surely, on a consistent basis.  I have already managed to lose 17 kilos and still going strong!


I also noticed that I have abundant energy and my breathing is much easier – as a singer, this is particularly important to me. I recall one situation early this year where I had a very important singing assignment and my voice was very strained.  I was not coping well, was feeling very low and was extremely worried that I would not be able to perform.  Irene advised me to increase my dosage (which I did) – and went on to give one of my best performances ever!  The Royal Jelly and Stabilized Oxygen helped to give me the vital lift I needed, boosting my health, assisting my breathing, uplifting my spirits and resulting in a wealth of compliments on my exceptional performance – I was thrilled!  I generally feel much more relaxed, healthier and rejuvenated and plan to continue with my daily dose of the Irene formulation and Stabilized Oxygen.


Thank you for giving me a new lease on life!


Kind Regards,






I first began taking Irene Royal Jelly approximately three months ago when I was at an extremely low ebb health-wise. A year prior to that, while studying at university, I discovered that I had contracted glandular fever. Although I did manage to get my degree, the illness, not to mention long-term stress, had taken its toll on my body. By the time I left university, I had developed a systemic yeast infection, an under-active thyroid, depleted adrenals and was very vitamin and mineral deficient. All of this meant that I had absolutely no energy and no enthusiasm for life in general.


When I discovered Irene’s product, I immediately consulted with her and she assured me that I would benefit immensely from taking the Irene Royal Jelly. Three months later and the improvements are no less than astounding. One of the most amazing developments is that I am no longer deficient in vitamins or minerals, when just four months ago a test revealed severe depletion of nutrients, in particular magnesium and potassium. Also, my hormones have started to re-balance and while I still have slightly stressed adrenal glands, there has certainly been a definite improvement.


Another significant development is an improvement in the condition of my hair. Before I started taking Irene Royal Jelly, my hair had become dull, lifeless and brittle and I was also experiencing a considerable amount of hair loss. Now, I have softer, shinier and thicker hair and only a small amount of loss.


As well as these main benefits, there have also been some surprising effects of taking Irene Royal Jelly. I have always suffered badly with Hayfever but since taking Irene so far I have experienced none of the symptoms associated with it, while other members of my family are already sneezing and rubbing their itchy eyes!


In effect, taking Irene Royal Jelly is one of the best things that I have ever done. In a relatively short space of time, I have been transformed from an apathetic, lethargic invalid to a more energetic and vibrant person with a zest for life. It is still early days, and I would not yet say that I am back to optimum health, but Irene assures me that the best is yet to come! And if what I have experienced in the last few months is anything to go by, I can’t wait to see what the next three have in store.

Irene Stein has been a lifesaver for me. Not only does she have a fantastic product, but her knowledge and caring manner gave me the confidence to try Irene Royal Jelly and I was definitely not disappointed

So, thank you, Irene. I owe you one!

I’ve been taking the Irene Formulation for the last three or four years and have been through possibly the most stressful time of my life during the past two years.  Considering the extreme stress and strain attached to this I have been keeping particularly well.  Everybody tells me how amazing I am and look, given that I have gone through so much.  The way in which I have been coping mentally and physically too has been extraordinary, particularly at the level of activity and running around that I do in my hectic life.


There is an obvious difference in my hair and skin, which people comment on and best of all are my recent blood tests which show improvement which I would not have expected, given that my iron level is usually deficient.  Even my hairdresser comments on my hair condition, which improves all the time.

In mid-life,  I would have expected to slow down some more and I’m also aware that my general health has been in excellent condition.  Things like energy, concentration and ability to cope just keep getting better and better.


I’m always recommending the product and many people take it as a result of my experiences.

I think that every woman must wait for the time when "the change" appears with the apprehension that I did.  At 53, and feeling like a 40 year old, I was really not ready for the fact that this "thing" that happens to "older" women was upon me!!


Having had near hysterics as well as quite a few hot flushes - and feelings of stress and anxiety, and armed with an adamant refusal that this was in fact happening to me - I took a trip to the doctor - really just to ensure that I was right and my body was wrong.  However, much to my dismay, the opposite was true.

My doctor recommended going on hormones for a few months so that I would adjust to my situation better, do away with the hot flushes and generally provide the hormones that are missing while going through the change.


I took the hormones for 4 days then got a period.  I then threw the hormones away and decided to treat myself the natural way.


I started taking Irene Royal Jelly about 2.5 months ago.  I have been getting regular periods and have not had any hot flushes at all. My nails are fantastic (I don't remember the last time they were so strong) and I have a general feeling of well being.

I thank IRENE ROYAL JELLY for getting me through a very traumatic time in my life in the natural way - with lots of side bonuses as well.
