La Jolla-Based LifeWave Named Among Nation's Fastest Growing Companies

International Distributorship Company Has Moved Up 3,390 Spots on Inc. 5000 List

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- In recognition of its explosive growth over the past year, Inc. magazine ranked LifeWave No. 1435 on its fourth annual Inc. 5000 list, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. Moving up a whopping 3,390 spots from last year, the company's first year on the list, LifeWave ranked No. 4,825 in 2009 based on its revenue growth.

"We are extremely proud to again be included on the Inc. 5000 list," said David Schmidt, founder and CEO of LifeWave. "Moving up on the Inc. 5000 list, in such a dramatic fashion, is a real testament to the entrepreneurial spirit and dedication shown by our worldwide network of distributors."

Based in La Jolla, CA, LifeWave has grown into an international distributorship company in 84 countries and offers a full line of unique products that create a world-class financial opportunity for those who want to share in the LifeWave mission.

"Our rapid growth over the past year can, in part, be attributed to our new partnership with famed actress and passionate health advocate Suzanne Somers," said Schmidt. "Her enthusiastic support for our product line coupled with a rapidly expanding international distributorship base has been nothing short of phenomenal."

Somers included interviews with Schmidt in her last two books: New York Times bestsellers BREAKTHROUGH and KNOCKOUT.

LifeWave non-transdermal patches gently stimulate acupuncture points to improve the flow of energy through the body. The patches offer pain relief without drugs, contain no supplements or stimulants, and affect acupuncture points without the need for needles. The LifeWave product line includes Energy Enhancer, IceWave, SP6 Complete, Silent Nights and Y-Age Glutathione and Carnosine patches.

It is known that specific frequencies of light can cause specific changes in the human body. When in the sun, a frequency of light causes the human body to make Vitamin D. Another frequency of light (UV) will cause the body to make melanin, the chemical that causes skin to tan. The LifeWave line of exclusive non-transdermal patches utilizes this knowledge to gently stimulate acupuncture points, which have been used to balance and improve the flow of energy in the human body for thousands of years. The result is a natural way to improve the quality of life without any drugs, stimulants or needles entering the body.

The LifeWave adhesive patches produce results without the introduction of chemicals, herbs, or physical devices into the body. LifeWave products are safe and natural and use the body's own systems to produce amazing results. All of the LifeWave products are produced to the highest quality standards, and are tested in rigorous clinical studies.
