How You Can Find an Alternative Natural Cures for Depression

June 17th, 2006

At any given time 9.5% of the population is suffering from some form of Depression. Many of these people never seek treatment or are unaware that Depression is in fact treatable. While not everyone experiences the same symptoms, if you are suffering from Depression, you may feel consistently sad or empty, experience feelings of guilt or helplessness, lose interest in things you once enjoyed, suffer from Insomnia and decreased energy, or have thoughts of suicide.

There are many potential causes for Depression, and cases vary from person to person. Depression can run in families, which leads some researchers to believe that the condition can be inherited. In some cases, people who have experienced trauma or are suffering from severe illnesses will also develop a depressive disorder, suggesting that Depression can be caused by psychological or physical changes in one’s life as well. Depression is more common in women than men, and can sometimes be caused by hormonal changes in the body, which women are more prone to.

Any diagnosis of a depressive disorder should be accompanied by a physical evaluation and conducted by a doctor. There are some viral illnesses, as well as other medications, that can cause symptoms of Depression, and these should be ruled out. Once a diagnosis is obtained, your doctor should work with you to develop the best treatment for you.

Depression can often be treated with therapy alone, but some patients do decide to try prescription medication. The most commonly prescribed medications are selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), tricyclics, and monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs). It can take a while to find the right medication or combination of medications for each person, but all prescription Depression medications have a risk of minor, or occasionally major, side effects.

If prescription medications aren’t working as well as you’d like them to, or if you’re unhappy with the side effects and risks that accompany them, you may decide to explore Herbal Remedies for Depression. There are many natural cures for Depression available in the marketplace, but it’s best to look for ones with a few key ingredients:

St. John’s Wort is one of the most effective natural ingredients for treating Depression. In fact, in some countries like Germany, St. John’s Wort outsells many of the major prescription anti-depressive medications. The active ingredients in St. John’s Wort are believed to naturally boost serotonin levels, which helps lift spirits and ease Depression.

Passion flower is a natural ingredient that is often used to treat sleep disorders and Anxiety. It helps to soothe and calm, and when combined with St. John’s Wort can be a wonderful aid in treating Depression naturally.

Depression is a life-consuming condition, but you do not have to suffer quietly. If you think have a depressive disorder, seek professional help to find the treatment options that are best for you and your condition, whether they include prescription medication or Natural Remedies for Depression, and remember to explore a variety of options before making a decision.

Are You Having Problems Ending Your Smoking Habit?

June 15th, 2006

If so, you are not alone. According to the research, over 90% of active Smokers would like to quit and wish they had never started1.

As you will see the likelihood of successfully quitting without help is not very high. Before giving up, keep in mind that there is a specific hypnosis protocol for quitting smoking that has been statistically shown to greatly increase the success rates of smoking cessation.

Some Interesting Facts:

  • About 90% of Smokers are clinically �addicted� to smoking
  • Estimates of the number of those making a serious attempt to Quit Smoking each year ranges between 33%2 to 66% for all active Smokers
  • Studies show that of those who try to Quit Smoking alone without any additional help or support (hypnosis or otherwise), the success rate is very low. Only between 2-5% of those who try are successful after 12 months, with most failing in the first 2-3 weeks
  • Of those few who do successfully quit on their own, it takes an average of 5-6 attempts before finally succeeding

As you can see, without getting help, your chances of permanently quitting are pretty slim. However there is a way to greatly increase your chances of giving up smoking.

Understand Your Choices

An examination of multiple research studies show that a single session hypnosis treatment to stop smoking produced about a 25% success rate, whereas about 66% of those engaging in at least 4-5 sessions of hypnosis Quit Smoking after a 6-12 month period.

To be fair, there are other methods.

Those engaging in a behavior modification program, nicotine replacement, or a Zyban medication approach alone average about a 25% success rate and up to a 50% success rate when used in some combination with each other after a 12 month period.

In order to provide you with the greatest chance of quitting smoking permanently, Randy Gilchrist Psy.D., a licensed clinical psychologist, has created The Non-Smoker�s Edge, the most comprehensive program to Quit Smoking with hypnosis available today.

The Non-Smoker�s Edge stop smoking hypnosis program combines the same multi-session hypnosis format supported with a 66% success rate and combines it with cutting edge behavior modification strategies that alone produce success rates of 25%. Dr. Gilchrist also includes a review and advice on the latest Nicotine Withdrawal relief products, including Natural Remedies, nicotine replacement, and Zyban medication.

Comments from some of Dr. Gilchrist�s clients:

I am 63, I was told that I had to stop smoking for severe health problems. I tried every other possible program, method or gimmick. I was desperate. My friend recommended the program. It had worked for her so I sent for the CDs. My desperation left me and I began to face the real possibility that I could actually quit. The calm voice became a daily companion. I can now say that I am a non-smoker. It has taken me 47 years to be able to say that. Truly one of my greatest accomplishments! Julianna Poderzay - Mazula, Montana

How about that? It actually works. My wife didn’t believe that I could do it. It took a couple times through, but I am not smoking any more. I have extra money to take my wife out now. We both thank you. Jay Rogers - Winnemucca, Nevada

My doctor told me to get some help to stop smoking. The CD’s were really relaxing and helped me get through busy stressful days. It all came together, I don’t smoke and I�m much calmer overall. Good program. It worked for me. Allan Randall

“Since your hypnosis, I am not only staying away from smoking, but I also stopped eating the junk food I used to eat. There were no fireworks. I am simply a new person–how I’ve wanted to be for a long time. This is wonderful!” Kim Johnson - Sacramento, CA

“It was amazing. After the hypnosis (with you), something clicked in my mind and everything became much easier for me. My attitude has changed, along with my desires. I have no idea how it worked, but it did. This has helped me more than anything else.” Tracy M - Roseville, CA

“You’ve helped me gain the inner strength to quit. I didn’t know I had it in me. The power of the mind is amazing. I wish I knew about this a long time ago. Thank you so much.” Dawn J. - San Diego, CA

“I am happy to say that it (smoking) never even came to my mind after hearing you and going through these exercises. It just hasn’t even been a part of my day. It’s almost as if I just forgot about it”. Natalie C. - Escondido, CA

“Since working with (your program), I’ve quit cold-turkey for 5 months now. It was much easier than I thought it would be.” Raymond C - Roseville, CA

Choosing Your Path to Success

The choice is yours. You can try to quit alone or you can try an approach which has a research-supported success rate of well over 66% - the highest of any smoking cessation program available today. Even though The Non-Smoker�s Edge is the most comprehensive and effective smoking cessation program available today, we also know it can�t work for every one who tries it because of the difficult nature of smoking addiction. Nevertheless, it is essential for your health to give yourself the best possible chance of quitting smoking forever.

We are still going to offer you our unconditional 1-year money back guarantee. We hope that by eliminating all risk, you will give yourself the best tools and resources currently available through this program to begin giving up this detrimental habit now.

The Non-Smoker�s Edge is a 7-CD Program:

CD1 Dr. Gilchrist guides you through the latest research on smoking cessation

CD2 Dr. Gilchrist provides you with cutting edge behavioral modification strategies and advises you on how to integrate other smoking withdrawal products into this program

Herbs for Anxiety: How You Can Find an Alternative to Anti-Anxiety Prescription Medication

June 7th, 2006

Anxiety Disorder can be a debilitating and all-consuming condition for many of those who suffer from it. Whether you are affected by Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder or one of the many other forms of the disorder, you may have investigated the option of using prescription medication as part of your treatment.

With over 19 million people in the U.S. alone reporting suffering from some type of it, Anxiety disorder is the most common of all mental health disorders. Fortunately, Anxiety disorder is highly treatable, and with professional help, it can often be completely overcome. Many times, successful treatment depends only upon individual or group therapy and learned relaxation techniques. In some cases, however, anti-Anxiety prescription medication is also recommended. The most commonly prescribed Anxiety medications are benzodiazepines, such as Xanax, because they tend to have fewer side effects than Anti-Depressant medications. But benzodiazepines also carry a risk of alarming side effects and can be highly addictive, spurring many people to seek safer, more natural alternatives.

There are many natural Herbs for Anxiety which have been proven to effectively ease many of the symptoms of Anxiety with a very low risk of side effects. Just as with prescription medications, everyone reacts differently to natural medications, and it can take time to find the right combination and dosage for your body. There are many combination remedies on the market that include a mixture of effective ingredients, and that may provide you with long-lasting Anxiety relief.

Passion flower, an ingredient that is often used in natural medicine, alleviates hyperactivity, Anxiety, Insomnia, nervous Tension — and is even sometimes used to treat Parkinson’s Disease. Passion flower soothes and calms and can lower High Blood Pressure.

Lemon Balm is a general restorative for the nervous system, can reduce blood pressure and also calm the digestive system.

Lavender is an excellent Anxiety treatment and one of the best natural Panic Attack treatments. Lavender is a general tonic for the nervous system and a natural relaxant.

Valerian is a popular natural ingredient that can be used as a sedative and a painkiller. It is often effectively employed as a treatment for Anxiety and for Insomnia, as well.

You may find that with psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, relaxation exercises or support groups, or some combination of all of them, you do not need any medication. But if you do decide to explore the option of medication, natural treatments for Anxiety can provide you with safe, effective results, without the risk of side effects that prescription medications pose. Natural medications are becoming increasingly popular as awareness of them grows, and you might find that they are the right treatment for you as well.

Mental Health and Depression Month

May 24th, 2006

Being healthy doesn�t pertain just to your physical health. Your mental and physical health and well-being work and go together. Caring for your mind, as well as your body, is good for your whole health and key to your success at home, at work and at school. The stigma of behavioral health issues affects not only those who suffer from it, but also those who try to provide the services to assist them in living fulfilling lives.

Mental Health involves areas such as Depression, bipolar disorder, Anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, alcohol and eating disorders to name a few.

About one in four adults suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year; and many people suffer from more than one mental disorder at a given time.

Mental Health and Depression Month is designed to call attention to mood and Anxiety disorders on a national level, to educate the public and clinicians about the symptoms and effective treatments, to offer individuals the opportunity to be screened for the disorders, and to connect those in need of treatment to the mental health care system.

This designation also provides useful information that you can use to help to balance your everyday stresses, increase your awareness of mental health issues, and improve your own overall health.

“Caring for mental health should be part of each person’s daily routine for overall health,” said Michael Faenza, NMHA president and CEO.

No community, no school and no workplace is unaffected and untouched by mental illness:

  • $24 billion is annually lost by employee work impairment (behavioral); in any given year
  • One out of 5 adults have a serious mental illness
  • 5% to 9% of children suffer from serious emotional disturbances

Mental disorders are the leading cause of disability in North America, Europe and, increasingly, in the world. By 2020, Major Depressive illness will be the leading cause of disability in the world for women and children. Mental illnesses strike individuals in the prime of their lives, often during adolescence and young adulthood. All ages are susceptible, but the young and the old are especially vulnerable.

10-15% of all depressions are triggered by other medical conditions (such as thyroid disease, Cancer or neurological problems) or by medications. The use of drugs and alcohol can also cause Depression. Mood and Depressive disorders often co-occur with Anxiety disorders and substance abuse.

Are you also aware that chronic stress, Depression or Anxiety can double your Heart Attack risk and also increase your likelihood of developing serious illnesses like Diabetes and Cancer?

Medical psychologist Joseph Mancusi, president of the Center for Organizational Excellence in Sterling, says that �stress leads to real physical and mental health problems, often starting with Sleeplessness, which is tied to many physical ailments and which can damage the Immune System, opening the door to illness�.

According to the U.S. Surgeon General’s report on mental health, more than half of all people with a severe mental illness fail to seek treatment. Many people do not receive treatment for mental health problems due to a lack of awareness of the problem, fear of stigma, or lack of access to appropriate services. Yet, overall quality of life is greatly improved when a person with a mental health problem gets an early diagnosis and receives appropriate treatment.

Facts About Depression for Men, Women, Adolescents and Children

Men:

  • In the United States, Depression affects nearly 7% of men (6 million men).

  • Bipolar disorder is more likely to affect the children of parents who have the disorder. When one parent has bipolar disorder, the risk to each child is estimated to be 15-30%. When both parents have bipolar disorder, the risk increases to 50-75%.
  • According to the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, up to one-third of the 3.4 million children and adolescents with Depression may actually be experiencing the early onset of bipolar disorder.
  • School age children of depressed parents have more difficulty relating to peers, higher rates of Depression and Anxiety, and increased rates of disruptive behavior problems.

Natural Treatments for Anxiety: How You Can Find Natural Anxiety Relief

May 19th, 2006

If you find yourself worrying uncontrollably about everyday tasks or if you are constantly and excessively anxious about issues like family health, finances or your job, you may be suffering from Generalized Anxiety Disorder. While everybody experiences Anxiety occasionally, people who suffer from G.A.D. experience it so excessively that it can interfere with their ability to perform ordinary tasks. In order for the condition to be diagnosed, you must have suffered from these symptoms for at least six consecutive months. And if you are in fact suffering from G.A.D., you may find physical relief in certain Natural Remedies.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder should be treated by a mental health professional, and treatment is usually multifaceted and tailored toward each individual, especially since the condition is often accompanied by Depression or substance abuse. Most professionals recommend behavioral or cognitive therapy, or a combination of both of them, along with relaxation techniques, as an essential part of treatment. Some also recommend prescription Anxiety medications, which can be effective in alleviating many symptoms. But increasingly, doctors and patients are finding that natural treatments for Anxiety can provide much of the same relief as prescription medication, but without the potentially alarming side effects.

When combined with relaxation exercises, kava kava (or piper methysticum) is an excellent Anxiety remedy that can also be used to promote sleep (Insomnia is a common symptom of G.A.D.) if taken in a higher dosage. It should not be used as a sleep aid for longer than four months.

Valerian is a Natural Remedy for Anxiety and Insomnia that is extremely popular worldwide. It is also used as a natural sedative and painkiller, and when taken at bedtime it can help prevent Panic Attacks.

Passion flower is an ingredient that can successfully treat Insomnia, hyperactivity and nervous Tension. Passion flower is naturally soothing and calming, and can also be used to treat Hypertension and lower blood pressure.

Lavender is a popular Natural Remedy for a variety of conditions, one of which is Anxiety disorder. Lavender is a nervous system tonic and one of the best natural Panic Attack treatments.

If you are already taking prescription medication and decide to stop in favor of Natural Remedies, it should always be in consultation with a healthcare professional. Natural Remedies can provide a safe and effective alternative to other medications, but as with all medicine, it can take time to find the correct dosage for each individual, and it might take a few weeks before you see the effects. With patience and resolve, you may find yourself on the rewarding path to finding natural Anxiety relief.

Aromatherapy For Sadness

May 18th, 2006

Sadness - just what do I mean by this?

I’m not talking about full blown Depression, although sadness can occur with Depression. With Depression, many people feel totally hopeless and sometimes desperate.

I’m not talking about the ‘blues’ either. To me the blues is when you feel extremely out of sorts for a while, you feel like you need to cry, but the tears just won’t come.

Sadness is that mildest form of the above two emotional situations. As example, you had a couple of upsetting things happen throughout the day and you feel a little down. In some cases you may actually be ‘grumpy’.

This is a case where your favorite Essential Oils or some that are energizing and uplifting can really help.

Of course my other rule is that you must put a smile on your face, even if you don’t feel like smiling.

Read a couple of jokes that make you laugh. Most everyone has a favorite joke or two that always brings a smile to your face - every time you hear it.

Now there are many blends and single oils that usually will bring a smile and will make you feel happy. Any of the Citrus oils Lemon, Orange, Grapefruit, Lime, Mandarin , etc are all uplifting. So are the mints - Peppermint and Spearmint. Juniper is also uplifting

Several floral Essential Oils and absolutes will also help: Rose, Jasmine and my favorite to make you feel happy and sometimes down right giddy is Ylang Ylang . We have seen this particular oil make a roomfull of people become very happy and almost silly.

So next time you are feeling a little sad, diffuse a few of your favorite oils or try any one of our blends that are uplifting, revitalizing, citrus blend, mint energizing or any thing else.

Dealing With Nicotine Cravings

May 14th, 2006

Use Triple Complex NicoTonic regularly to:

  • Ensure systemic balance of biochemic tissue salts in the body;
  • Optimize health at the cellular level;
  • Quickly relieve the ’short fuse’ syndrome associated with nicotine and drug withdrawal;
  • Relax and reduce restlessness and irritability;
  • Optimize the effects of RX-Hale Tablets and Crave-RX Drops in the fight against nicotine and other addictions.

What are tissue salts?

Tissue Salts, also called cell salts or biochemic salts, are composed of Minerals which occur naturally in our bodies and all Organic matter on earth, such as plants, rocks and soil.

Dr Scheussler, a prominent 19th Century German doctor, conducted research which demonstrated that, when reduced to ashes, each human cell contains 12 Minerals or biochemic tissue salts and that these Minerals should be present in all living cells in perfect balance to ensure good health.

Imbalance, or a deficiency of any of the tissue salts, causes disease and the body begins to develop symptoms associated with the tissue salts that are lacking.

Restoring the correct balance of tissue salts in the body will therefore remove the symptoms and restore health and vitality.

This system of medicine is called Biochemistry and is still practiced today by homeopaths and naturopaths all over the world.

Are tissue salts Supplements or medicine?

A little of both in a way! Tissue salts can be described as ‘Nutroceuticals’ - nutritional substances which are used to maintain optimal health and functioning and also to restore balance and relieve symptoms of disease.

Tissue Salts can therefore be taken regularly to prevent illness and improve functioning (just like Vitamins), but can also be used to treat symptoms when this is necessary (as one would do with medicines).

The only difference is that they are taken more frequently to treat symptoms and less frequently as a preventative and a health aid.

As an example, certain tissue salts can be taken three times a day to promote digestive health. However, if symptoms like Indigestion, gas, nausea or Bloating occur, the frequency can be increased too.

If tissue salts are also nutritional, can I get them from a healthy diet?

Yes, in theory you can - and that is how it is supposed to be! Since the 12 different tissue salts are present in all Organic matter, our bodies obtain tissue salts from the food that we eat and the water that we drink.

A healthy diet should be able to provide all the tissue salts that our bodies need. Unfortunately, due to modern farming methods, the food that is available to us is often deficient in the Minerals and Vitamins that are essential for health - even if we follow a healthy diet.

Added to this is the fact that many people rely on fast food or pre-packed processed meals due to time constraints and a stressful lifestyle.

Over time, this can lead to symptoms of poor health or even disease. This means that the majority of people in Western countries are deficient in essential Vitamins and other nutritional substances, and need to take Supplements on a daily basis.

Are tissue salts safe?

Even some Vitamins taken in excess can do harm! Not so with Tissue Salts.

Due to a unique and specialized manufacturing process, our tissue salts are present in a highly absorbable form and only minute amounts are therefore present in each tablet.

This means that tissue salts are extremely safe and free of side effects.

It is impossible to overdose with tissue salts and they may be safely be taken by people of all ages, as well as infants and women who are Pregnant or nursing.

What is Triple Complex NicoTonic?

Triple Complex NicoTonic assists in promoting the bio-availability of nutrients, hormones and bio-chemicals that are usually depleted by the stress of nicotine and drug withdrawal. Although it is very effective as a stand-alone product in any withdrawal program (not only nicotine), Triple Complex NicoTonic is best used together with Crave-RX Nicotine Withdrawal reducer and RX-Hale stop smoking remedy.

Triple Complex NicoTonic contains Natrium Phosphate, Kalium Phosphate and Natrium Muriaticum as a treatment for the ’short fuse’ syndrome so frequently associated with Nicotine Withdrawal. Regular use helps to prevent irritability, temper outbursts and restlessness and ensure a calmer and more successful path to a cigarette free life!

For best results use together with Crave-RX and Triple Complex NicoTonic in the Stop Smoking UltraPack

How do I take Triple Complex NicoTonic?

Dissolve 2 - 4 tiny tablets under your tongue whenever needed to alleviate restlessness, irritability and agitation associated with nicotine or drug withdrawal.

Safe for use during Pregnancy and for nursing mothers. Will not interfere with any other prescription drugs.

How has Triple Complex NicoTonic helped others?

“I wanted to let you know that it has been four weeks and I still haven’t had a cigarette! I have NEVER lasted more than three days. There have been up days and down days, but I have survived. I feel as determined as I did when I started and I am still determined that I never want to start smoking again. My body still craves and I get ratty as hell - but the NicoTonic tablets help tremendously with that and are my lifesaver! Thanks for a wonderful and healthy way to stop smoking!” BMH

“There is no way I would have stopped smoking without your products. Many previous attempts have proven this! Now I can happily say that this in not an attempt but a success story thanks to your natural stop smoking products. The NicoTonic tablets are so soothing and are just the right thing to pop into your mouth and suck whenever the craving gets too much. At first I practically lived on them, but now about 10 weeks later I only use them a few times a day. Yesterday I did not use them at all, but today I needed them again, but that is fine! As a 30 a day smoker, this program has saved me a fortune already!” Max, NY

“My husband has asked me to write in and thank you for the help and support you have given us while we both stopped smoking. On doctor’s instructions we looked for a program and found so much more from Native Remedies. We have received nothing but wonderful support from everyone and the remedies have been amazingly effective. I can’t say that there were no difficult moments, but we did it together. I will always remember the day we both wanted to tear each other’s hair out and survived on handing each other the NicoTonic tablets to suck every time one of us threatened to blow a gasket! Thank you once again from both of us ” Trevor and Molly, UK.

How long does a bottle last?

Each Native Remedies Triple Complex NicoTonic bottle contains 360 tablets.

Depending on frequency of usage, one bottle will last approximately a month.
