Introduction To Herbs

April 24th, 2006

What is an Herb?

Any plant that has culinary, medical, cosmetic, veterinary or other use of some kind. The useful part is different with every plant, it can be the leaves, flowers, roots, barks or seeds. The plant can be a tree or shrub, a weed or an exotic flower, or one of the common group of plants known as “Herbs.” They come from all over the world, but many effective Herbal Remedies grow right in most people’s neighborhood. There are many experts that believe the Herbs best for you are the ones that grow in your general neigborhood and bioregion.

Do Herbs work for medicines?

They have been human medicine for all of our history and are still the main medicine for much of the world. Some are well researched and proven effective, others have been around for hundreds of years and stand on empirical evidence. Yes, Herbs work. However, you must have the right herb for the right situation, for the right body, at the right time. Okay?

Are Herbs safe?

Most common Herbs are as safe as food. However, many contain potent chemical constituents that can harm if used carelessly, and some of the most virulent of poisons come from plants. There is also the fact that for every substance in the world, there is someone who is Allergic to it. So all Herbs should be used with caution and respect.

What about Dosages?

This should be checked out for each herb in a reliable herb book. As a rule of thumb, however, for acute illness, less Herbs are used, and they are taken frequently, as much as every couple of hours for a limited amount of days. For chronic problems, often more complicated formulas are used, and they are taken once or twice a day for a fairly long period of time.

Dosage for children and pets: divide their weight by 150 lbs and that will equal the fraction of the adult dosage.

weight of child or pet ———————- = fraction of adult dose. 150 (adult weight)

Herbs for Health and Healing

Humankind has been blessed with plants to eat, plants for shade, plants to keep the landscape pretty, to keep the wind away from dwellings, and plants that have been used as medicines since the time before written history. The Druids, the Celts, the ancient Egyptians, and many of our ancestral cultures have used the plants around them for their medical properties. It has been noted that the ancient Sumerians, Assyrians, and Greeks knew of the medicinal properties of Herbs. It has been written that Alexander the Great made many expeditions into far-off lands for the purpose of gathering Herbs from those places and bringing them back to used in local potions and medicinal remedies.

My personal interest and studies in nature and its healing components have revealed to me the importance of medicinal Herbs. I am fully committed to the fact that man and nature walk hand in hand upon this planet and that our relationship with our environment is the key to personal satisfaction and health. The works of natural healing pioneers can be found in any library. I am a proponent of their works and have tried their experiments on myself and my family. When I use Herbs in medicine, I find positive results each time. I do not have to encounter any of the side effects of chemical medications.

I believe that there is an innate intuition that speaks to man of the healing properties of plants, as opposed to the ingestion of chemicals. We are, indeed, a part of the Nature of this planet, and it is my firm belief that Nature takes care of her own. We are contained in Nature, sustained by Nature, and healed by Nature. We are alive, and that spirit of life is in tune with the constant rhythms of the world in which we find ourselves.

A Brief History of Herbs

Herbs have been used for time uncounted for healing the sick and infirm. The earliest recorded Herbs have been found to date back as far as 2500BC. It is certain that they were used widely even prior to that time. Even in prehistoric days, plants were sought and used for shelter, food and medicine. Some of the ancient cave etchings have shown glyphs of plant leaves and roots being used by the caveman.

There are records of the Sumerians using Thyme and laurel 5,000 years ago. As far back as 2700 BC the Chinese people were known to use over 30 plants for medicinal purposes. Among these was found the herb ma-huang, from which ephedrine is still produced. Records of Egyptian culture, as far back as 1000 BC, tell of the common uses of many Herbs and plants for food, medicine, and dyes. These Egyptians have written of using Garlic, indigo, mint, and opium. Even the Old Testament speaks of the people using wheat , rye, and barley. The ancient Greeks and Romans used Herbs and other plants for cosmetics, in magical and religious ceremonies, both symbolically and realistically, and as medicine and seasonings for cooking.

It was Hippocrates who spoke of maintaining our natural life force through the use of herbals, fresh air, adequate rest, proper nutrition and balanced diet. A Greek physician by the name of Dioscorides wrote an extensive compendium of herbals in the first century AD. This book, called De Materia Medica, contains over 500 plants, which were listed, defined, and explained for their medicinal qualities.

In the Middle Ages, there was very little change in the concepts and treatments of medicine. At this time, the herbal information and gathered writings of the old Greek and Roman works were diligently hand-copied by monks in monasteries to preserve the information. The monks and religious leaders took on the knowledge and grew vast herb gardens for the healing arts. In the early cultures, as healing was a common practice of the religious leader of that day, growing and use of Herbs was mainly kept in the hands of the monks and ministers. In those times, it was a common awareness that all plants were beneficial to man and the earth.

Man has apparently always made use of plants, animals, and minerals in his diet and health. The plant kingdom provides the human body with the best basis for healing and for maintaining that health. Modern herbalism has developed from many and varied sources, most commonly passed down through family folklore and local tradition. Herbalism is a very real part of our life here on earth. The cultivation and use of Herbs (for many purposes) is as much a reality today as it has been since the dawn of history

It has been noted in many writings and by personal observation that the children of all cultures and walks of life seem to have a natural instinct to seek high carbohydrate foods, which provide energy and building of bodily tissues. Unspoiled Native people of all regions of the earth are known to watch for the first young sprouts of Spring. They spend a great deal of time watching for, gathering, preparing, and eating wild tender shoots and young leaves of plants and Herbs that are common to their area.

In North America, young country children can be found snacking in the wild throughout the day. They are very adept at finding the wild vegetables, like wild cabbage, Sorrel, onion, and Garlic. They will seek out the foods that are the healthiest for them, by some kind of innate instinct. They will chew on raw tree leaves and roots. They know intuitively that elm leaves will relieve hunger. They will hunt for apples, grapes, and berries. These little ones, when they come home in the evening, will eat cornstalks and raw vegetable from the garden, including carrots, peas, and beans.

Young people and adults can be found chewing on certain wild flowers and ferns, such as cicily. Common weed, like dandelions and water cress are eaten by all. The people will look for and gather the wild Wintergreen, Peppermint, and Spearmint plants. All these Herbs and plants, that are growing in the wild, are beneficial to the human body.

With the advent of modern methods of food processing and chemically engineered nutrients and medicines, many natural Herbal Remedies have been lost and people have fallen away from their uses in food, shelter, and medicinals. This is unfortunate, as Herbs and other plants still contain the Vitamins, Essential Oils, mucilage, alkaloids and other natural ingredients that are beneficial to the body, mind, and spirit of man.

Herbs of Today

Herbs are generally defined as any plants of a non-woody nature, which die after blooming. This definition has been expanded to encompass any of the plants of which part or whole can be used in medicinal treatments, culinary preparations (as seasonings), nutritional supplementation, or in use as a coloring or cosmetic agent.

Fresh herbals and Medicinal Plants can be acquired by gathering them in the wild, growing them in your own personal garden, or buying them from other herb gardeners and health food stores.

Gathering Herbs is probably the most inexpensive and natural way to get them. If you are going to gather Herbs, it is best to do so in the mid-afternoon, as the plants are at their peak of activity during the warmest part of the day.

However, it might be safer to grow them yourself, for then you know exactly what you are getting and what has been used on them during the growing process.

If you make the choice to purchase Herbs, then it is always a good idea to do a bit of research on the people from whom you are buying.

Fresh Herbs can be used as they are, as an integral part of daily diet or can be administered after they have been dried. There are several way to prepare Herbs for consumption and use in medicinal remedies. When Herbs are prepared by steeping then in boiling water to be drunk as a tea, they are known as an infusion. If dried Herbs are simmered in hot water, they are called a decoction. If incorporated in with other ingredients and made into a cream, they are viewed as an herbal ointment. Sometimes, a piece of gauze or cloth is soaked in an infusion or decoction and is wrapped and applied externally. This is known as an herbal compress. If Herbs are used to water to cleanse and heal externally, they are called an herbal wash. Herbal infusions and decoctions can also be used as an herbal bath for Relaxation and healing.

There are a few simple rules to follow when working with Herbs for food, nutritional supplements, or medicinals:

  1. Always know that you can personally identify the Herbs you are using. This is the only sure way to know they are safe for the intended preparation.
  2. If you are preparing an infusion or decoction, always use either glass of porcelain cookware and mixing bowls; never use metal containers.
  3. When preparing Herbs for short or long-term storage, place the dried Herbs in airtight glass containers and store in a cool place. Do not keep dried Herbs refrigerated.
  4. Always follow the recommended dosages on your preparations and recipes. Over-use of herbals can defeat the purpose for which you are using them. Some of the most beneficial Herbs can be toxic if they are over used.

Psoriasis - What Is It and What Can Help?

April 21st, 2006

What is Psoriasis?

Typically Psoriasis sufferers usually develop well defined red raised patches covered by silvery scales which form first on the scalp, behind the ears, on the back of the neck, between the shoulders, on elbows and knees or near fingernails and toenails.

Other areas of the body can also be affected including the back, the penis, the nails and even eyebrows. Individual psoriatic patches can spread and join together to affect quite a large area of the body. However, there are always Psoriasis-free places where the skin looks normal, which is an important characteristic in diagnosing this condition.

The most common form of Psoriasis is Psoriasis vulgaris. Other forms include localized pustular Psoriasis and exfoliative psoriatic dermatitis. Localized pustular Psoriasis usually only appears on the soles of the feet and the palms of the hand; and instead of red, scaly patches there’s usually a mass of tiny yellow Blisters. With exfoliative psoriatic dermatitis the entire skin is red and covered in fine scales.

How is Psoriasis usually treated?

Psoriasis cannot be cured although symptoms may disappear for long periods. Conventional treatment is aimed at controlling the condition and ranges from simple topical treatments such as moisturizing and lubricating products and corticosteroid creams to exposure to ultraviolet light. Very severe conditions may be treated with anticancer medications.

While conventional treatments can be very effective, they can also be extremely harsh – especially in the long-term — and many treat only the external symptoms.

What is Skin Dr.?

Skin Dr. is a combination of selected Herbs and biochemic tissue salts known for their ability to cleanse and purify the entire system, support healthy lymphatic functioning and treat the symptoms of a range of Skin Conditions, including Psoriasis, Eczema, Acne, Dandruff, Cradle Cap, Herpes Blisters, as well as itchy Skin Conditions like Chicken Pox and Allergic Rashes.

Taken internally, Skin Dr. helps to balance and hydrate the skin, improve the supply of oxygen at cellular level, promote skin healing and remove dead and infected cells.

Skin Dr. contains the following ingredients in our unique herbal/homeopathic formula:

Natrium Muriaticum 6C (Nat. Mur.) is a biochemic tissue salt which helps to maintain the body’s water balance and is an essential component of all living cells. This tissue salt has an excellent reputation for effectively treating Eczema (dry and scaly as well as itching and weeping) as well as Psoriasis and any other Skin Condition that is associated with Blisters and watery discharge from the skin. It is also useful for the treatment of Allergy Rashes and all itching Skin Conditions, including Chicken Pox.

Kalium Muriaticum 6C (Kali. Mur.) acts as a blood and lymph Cleanser, a waste eliminator and a natural Anti-Inflammatory. It is very helpful in relieving skin itching, blistering and inflammation and will also prevent skin infection caused by frequent scratching. Due to the lymph cleansing and skin soothing properties of this tissue salt, Kali. Mur. is also invaluable in the treatment of infectious childhood diseases like Mumps, Chicken Pox, scarlet Fever and Measles. Additional benefits include the alleviation of conditions associated with inflammation and swelling such as Arthritis, Rheumatism, bursitis, prostate swelling as well as a range of other conditions.

Kalium Sulphate 6C (Kali. Sulph.) is a biochemic tissue salt that helps to distribute oxygen throughout the body and to each individual cell and keeps all cell membranes healthy. By providing essential oxygen to inflamed or infected cells, Kali. Sulph. effectively assists healing, reduces inflammation and removes infected or dead cells. This tissue salt is well-known for its ability to treat stubborn Eczema and Psoriasis and is equally effective in treating other Skin Conditions such as Acne, ringworm, Dandruff, Herpes Blisters, warts and fungal infections of the skin and helps to promote the growth of new cells. Other uses include the treatment of sinus and respiratory congestion, Hot Flashes and joint Pains.

Galium aperine (Cleavers) is a herb which has been used in folk medicine for many centuries as a cleansing tonic and lymphatic Cleanser and blood purifier. Regular use helps to expel toxins from the body and therefore assist in the treatment of chronic Skin Conditions like Eczema, Psoriasis and Acne.

Trifolium pratense (Red Clover) has Anti-Inflammatory, Diuretic and antispasmodic properties and is also well known as a cleansing herb for skin complaints, including Eczema and Psoriasis. Its ability to improve lymph functioning and reduce lymphatic swellings helps to purify and detox the system.

Allergies and Hay Fever - What Will Help?

April 20th, 2006

Antihistamine drugs work by blocking the release of histamine in response to an Allergen. This prevents the Allergic reaction in the short term and helps to clear Allergic reactions like Sneezing, red, itchy and Watery Eyes and nose.

However, they also often have unwanted side effects like Drowsiness, heart palpitations, impaired concentration, etc.

Because they often become less effective over time, it may be necessary to keep trying new drugs to try and achieve the same therapeutic effect.

What are SOS HistaDrops and how can they help?

What Will Help Me Kick The Smoking Habit?

April 16th, 2006

Nicotine Patches, sprays and gum are a major part of most commercial Stop Smoking programs. Apart from the enormous cost to your pocket, using nicotine products to Stop Smoking also has a health cost.

Nicotine is a poison and is the reason why smokers are at risk for a wide range of illnesses, some of them fatal. Most people Stop Smoking to reduce these health risks caused by regular use of nicotine.

We believe that there is little sense in hanging on to the nicotine while trying to Stop Smoking. This only increases your health risk and keeps you addicted to nicotine.

Using nicotine products can certainly help to reduce the craving and severe Withdrawal Symptoms you feel when you try and Stop Smoking! However this is only because your body is getting the nicotine in a different form.

Crave-RX Drops can help to control the craving without the nicotine!

Fortunately nature has the answer! Addiction is not a new phenomenon and human beings have become addicted to various substances throughout the ages.

Herbalists, naturopaths and healers from traditional medicine have great experience in helping people to overcome addiction with the use of Herbs.

Opium dependency, one of the most difficult addictions to beat, has been successfully treated in Ayurvedic (Indian) medicine for hundreds of years.

Recently medical science has confirmed that many of the Herbs used to treat addiction in traditional medicine are effective in helping to control and prevent a wide range of symptoms as well as the craving associated with withdrawal from substances like nicotine and other drugs.

What are Crave-RX Drops and how do they work?

Crave-RX is a 100% natural product especially designed by Clinical Psychologist, Michele Carelse, as part of the Stop Smoking UltraPack

An ex-smoker herself, Michele tried many times to Stop Smoking and understands how Nicotine Craving can override your desire to Stop Smoking and drive you back to the cigarettes.

No matter how determined you are to Kick the Habit, the physical craving experienced in the first few weeks of Nicotine Withdrawal can drive your body to smoke again.

Crave-RX Drops contain a unique combination of selected herbal ingredients which have been clinically proven to reduce the craving for nicotine due to their balancing effect on the brain chemicals known to be associated with addiction.

Crave-RX Drops also contain Herbs which will help to prevent the Sugar Cravings and compensatory overeating which often cause people to go back to cigarettes due to unwanted weight gain.

Now you can safely Stop Smoking without gaining weight.

Crave-Rx ingredients

Crave-RX Drops come in convenient tincture form and include the following ingredients in therapeutic dosage:

Avena sativa - an excellent restorative and nutritious Nerve Tonic, which is also known to balance cholesterol levels and prevent Insomnia, Depression and Anxiety. Avena sativa has been used by healers in India for centuries to treat opium addiction. Recent studies have suggested that it is just as effective in reducing the craving for nicotine, possibly by balancing levels of brain chemicals (e.g. acetylcholine) implicated in addiction.

Garcinia cambogia - Used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine, this member of the citrus family is well known as a natural Appetite Suppressant and its active ingredient, Hydrocitric Acid (H.C.A) has been clinically demonstrated to assist with the burning of fat and the control of high tryglyceride levels in the body. Garcinia cambogia is included in Crave-RX Drops to prevent the Sugar Cravings and compensatory eating often associated with Nicotine Withdrawal and to prevent demotivating weight gain during this difficult withdrawal period.

Gotu Cola (Centella asiatica) - Also part of the Ayurvedic healing tradition, Gotu Cola has been well researched in recent times. Clinical studies demonstrate its effectiveness on concentration levels, memory and systemic circulation. Used to re-vitalize the brain and Nervous system, improve memory and combat ageing, Gotu Cola helps to promote mental clarity, enhance memory and brain function and alleviate Anxiety. This medicinal herb is so highly respected in Ayurvedic medicine for its effect on the mind, that it is even said to increase knowledge of Brahman - the supreme reality. Recent studies have suggested that Centella asiatica improves cerebral blood flow (CBF) and circulation in general, thereby allowing oxygen rich blood to penetrate deep into the brain.

When trying to Stop Smoking, many people complain of memory and concentration problems and an inability to Focus on their tasks. The inclusion of Gotu Cola in Crave-RX Drops helps to keep you cognitively in top form!

How have Crave-RX Drops helped others?

Crave-RX really works! As a veteran smoker and aspirant quitter I was constantly on some program or other to help me to Kick the Habit. Needless to say that my family had come to believe that I would never succeed. By nature I do not like to give up and so I kept trying, encouraged by my doctor who put me on one program after the other due to the terrible effect the cigarettes were having on my health. All of them contained nicotine in some form - tablets, sprays, gum, gel, patches, you name it! They all helped a bit, but as soon as I started to cut back on the products, I began to smoke again. When I read about your program and the fact that it contained no nicotine products I was prepared to give it a try, which was a good decision on my part as even my doctor was skeptical! I have not looked back and after 14 weeks I am using Crave-RX only a few times a week. At first it was my lifesaver and I went everywhere with the bottle! Now I am using the drops less and less and can even go a whole day without once thinking of cigarettes. For a guy who smoked more than 20 a day for 15 years, I would say that is very impressive! I will continue to use the RX-Hale tablets every day for a few more months as recommended. Thank you Native Remedies! ” Mike G.

“I can highly recommend Crave RX Drops along with the No More Smoking program offered by Native Remedies. No other product has been so successful for me and believe me I have tried them all! To all the many smokers out there who are desperate to give up smoking, I want to say YOU CAN DO IT with the help of Native Remedies and Crave RX drops! I am the living proof and my children are over the moon with me for giving up cigarettes. My son says that now he can look forward to having children one day because they will have a healthy grandmother who doesn’t smoke. Thank you for giving me back my health!” Gerri.

“No other product has ever helped me like this one! Together with the Triple Complex NicoTonic these drops have literally saved my life. As any smoker knows, you decide to give up cigarettes with your head, but your body resists so much it send you running off to the store to buy cigarettes with some stupid excuse that you later regret! This time I stayed strong and all thanks to your wonder drops! I still use them every day and will continue until I no longer need them as you said - but it will be 8 weeks tomorrow and I am still going strong!” Fran, MS

What Is Adult ADD?

April 15th, 2006

What is ADD?

ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) is a diagnosed disorder which affects concentration, Attention Span and the ability to Focus on the task at hand.

ADHD (Attention Deficit Disorder with Hyperactivity) is usually much easier to identify. Apart from their difficulties with concentration and memory, children and adults with ADHD often have associated behavioral problems in class, at home and in the workplace, due to their Impulsive behavior and hyperactivity. (For safe and effective treatment for ADHD, see Focus ADHD Formula.)

Children and Adults With ADD (without hyperactivity) often go un helped and undiagnosed. They may be very intelligent people, but because of their concentration and memory problems they perform poorly at school or college and seldom reach their full potential.

They often feel Listless and can lack motivation and energy because of their constant struggle to Concentrate and Focus on their work. Sometimes they can even develop Depression, because of their inability to achieve and negative feedback from those around them.

Children and Adults With ADD are often unfairly called ’stupid’, ‘dumb’, ‘lazy’ and other hurtful names, when all they need is some help and understanding.

What are the symptoms?

  • Easily distracted by sounds and other things happening in the environment
  • Difficulty in following instructions and completing tasks despite the desire to do so
  • Forgets and neglects chores and tasks often
  • Difficulty Concentrating and maintaining Focus on the task at hand
  • Short Attention Span
  • Tendency to daydream
  • Often seems not to be listening
  • Forgets what has been studied very quickly
  • Often loses possessions or forgets appointments
  • Often loses track of time

How does Focus ADDult for Adult ADD work?

Adults and teens who suffer from ADD have previously had to resort to prescription psycho-stimulant drugs with their dangers of addiction and side effects.

Michele Carelse, our Clinical Psychologist, has many years of experience with both adults and children who struggle with the symptoms of ADD and ADHD.

Recognizing the growing need for a safe and natural alternative for adults and teens with ADD, Michele has formulated Focus ADDult for Adult ADD, using a specially selected therapeutic blend of Herbs from around the world, specifically to address the symptoms of Adult ADD.

Use Focus ADDult for Adults With ADD to:

For children under 12 years with ADD please refer to BrightSpark

Focus ADDult for Adult ADD contains the following proven ingredients:

Using a concentrated medicinal extract from three powerful Herbs from Chinese, Ayurvedic (Indian) and Western naturopathic medicine, Focus ADDult works in three ways:

The principle ingredient, Centella asiatica, promotes mental clarity, enhances memory and brain function and helps to alleviate Anxiety. This medicinal herb is so highly respected in Ayurvedic medicine for its effect on the mind, that it is even said to increase knowledge of Brahman - the supreme reality. Recent studies have suggested that Centella asiatica improves cerebral blood flow (CBF) and circulation in general, thereby allowing oxygen rich blood to penetrate deep into the brain.

Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) is well-known as an all round tonic and energizer. Like Centella asiatica, it also promotes CBF. Recent studies have found that Rosemary contains acetyl-cholinesterase inhibitors, chemicals that prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine in the brain. Acetylcholine is a brain chemical which is involved in memory functioning and acetylcholine deficiency has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease and memory impairment.

Panax Ginseng has been used in Chinese medicine for more than 5000 years and is one of the most prized and expensive Chinese Herbs. It is used to reduce Stress, increase energy and motivation, strengthen the Immune System and decrease fatigue. Studies have shown that Panax Ginseng enhances Physical Performance in athletes, while the Soviet scientist, Dr Brekham, identified it as a superior adaptogen, normalizing body functions, reducing Stress and preventing disease. Further studies in Japan and India have demonstrated that rats fed with Panax Ginseng were able to learn tasks quicker, perform at a faster rate and make fewer mistakes than those in the control group. Panax Ginseng should not be confused with either Siberian Ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosis) or American Ginseng (Panax quinquefolius).

How has Focus ADDult for Adult ADD helped others?

“I started with Focus ADDult and immediately felt better. Not trusting my feelings I went to my doctor to get a prescription for Strattera. Strattera not only didn’t work any better, but made me feel sick and drugged everyday. I immediately came off of it and started back on my Focus ADDult. I will swear by this stuff! I feel more mentally alert and it is not my imagination. I have also recently purchased MellowPause and have immediately felt the difference. I highly recommend these products. They work!!!”

“I was diagnosed by the college psychologist with Adult ADD three weeks ago. I have been taking 5mg. of Adderall three times a day and then increased to 10mg twice a day and a 5mg tablet as my third dose. I ordered the Adult Focus and have been taking it in half doses with the Adderall and have noticed an even clearer outlook and better concentration, and this has just been 4 days.” - Kathleen H, USA

“Wish I had this years ago! Focus ADDult has been a life and work saver!” - Diana N, USA

&”For a long time my 14 year old son struggled in school and it wasn’t so much that his grades were bad, it was the fact he would get bored and lazy. He turned his attention towards doing things that disrupted class which rewarded him with being marked down. He began to lose interest in school and didn’t care anymore. When he was younger, the counselor had suggested having him tested for ADD and having him put on Ritalin or the equivalent. I told her that when I found a natural alternative, that is what he would take. My son did not have all the symptoms associated with ADD, but had one or two and that was enough for me to start him the Focus adult. Well to this day, his teachers are stunned!! Where did this kid come from they ask me? These are the same educators that told me my son was not “A” material. He hasn’t received a perfect 4.0 but at least he has been able to add a few A’s to his report card. I try to tell the world about what this product has done for me, but my small voice doesn’t compare to the big drug companies who continue to poison our children. So my fight goes on to help anyone that will listen to this great testimony of my son. I am so thankful to Native Remedies and I’m very proud of my son!! Success breeds Success!!!” - Mandy K, USA

“Great Product!!! I’m off Strattera after only 2 weeks, and this works even better!” - Shelley, TX, USA.

“I just wanted to Thank You, Thank you, Thank you for your Focus ADDult. I have a child (12 year old 6th grader) that has been having trouble with her grades for several years. I have had her tested for every learning problem and even sent her to the expensive tutoring service you see on TV. NOTHING worked. I did a search for ADD med alternatives as I don’t think children should be on prescriptions unless it is a last resort. My daughter has been taking your Focus ADDult for about 5-6 weeks and she has not one failing grade now on her report card. Last report card we had 3. All her grades are up to C’s. She feels good about herself and doesn’t say anything about drinking her “smart water” that she drinks every day. Ha. I’m also thankful you have the drops as she has trouble swallowing pills. The drops have saved her. I have signed up for the reorder program and plan to NEVER be out of this magic herb ever! Thank you so much!” - Vickie, Tennessee, USA

” I found your web site just by searching & ordered Focus ADDult, I have been taking it every day. Am I imagining things or am I more alert & focused these days? I seem to have more energy; my paper work is all up to date, what’s happening? I seem to have a clear head !” - Amanda, Suffolk, UK

The Problem of High Cholesterol

April 14th, 2006

What is High Cholesterol?

Cholesterol is a fat like substance that circulates in the blood and is produced by the body from dietary cholesterol and saturated fats in food. Cholesterol is not harmful if kept within acceptable limits.

It is used by the body to perform a variety of vital functions, including building and maintaining cell membranes, hormone synthesis, and the manufacture of Vitamin D. It is only when blood cholesterol levels become too high, that too much cholesterol can become a problem.

The body manufactures two types of cholesterol - LDL (which is seen as a ‘bad’ form of cholesterol) and HDL (which is seen as a ‘good’ form of cholesterol).

When LDL levels are too high, this leads to a buildup of Plaque in the arteries, with an increased risk of heart attack and Atherosclerosis. Healthy levels of HDL will help to clean away cholesterol in the arteries before it has a chance to build up.

In order to maintain healthy levels, we need to keep the LDL levels down and the HDL levels up.

What are the symptoms of High Cholesterol?

High Cholesterol levels often exist without any significant symptoms and many people only discover the problem after they have had heart problems like Angina or even a heart attack.

If your cholesterol levels are very high, you may notice small yellow nodules beneath the skin of your eyes, eyebrows or elbows. Although it is possible to do a home test (obtainable from your pharmacy), these tests only measure total blood cholesterol levels and do not measure HDL.

The best way to find out whether you have High Cholesterol levels is to visit your doctor, homeopath, naturopath or other health care provider.

Healthy adults should have their cholesterol levels measured at least every five years and more frequently if they are overweight, already have a cholesterol problem or if there is a family history of Heart Disease or High Cholesterol.

What causes High Cholesterol levels?

There is a definite link between High Cholesterol levels and a diet high in dietary cholesterol and saturated fat, although genetic factors also play an important role. Smoking, being overweight and insufficient Exercise can also contribute to High Cholesterol levels.

How is it usually treated?

It is very important to take steps to control your cholesterol levels. If it is left untreated, High Cholesterol can result in Heart Disease or even stroke.

The good news is that High Cholesterol can be well controlled by combining a healthy lifestyle with the correct medical treatment.

This can include synthetic prescription medication, Natural Remedies or a combination of both. If you are already taking prescription medication to control cholesterol levels, it is important to consult your doctor before making any changes.

Synthetic prescription medication for High Cholesterol

In response to soaring rates of High Cholesterol and Atherosclerosis, the pharmaceutical companies have produced a class of drugs which are collectively known as ’statins’.

The statins have a one dimensional effect of reducing the body’s ability to synthesize cholesterol. They do not, however, distinguish between the ‘bad’ cholesterol (LDL) and the ‘good’ cholesterol (HDL) and can also reduce levels of Co-enzyme Q10 and L-carnitine, two very important molecules which are involved in energy production and fat Metabolism.

Myalgia and even stomach, lung and liver tumors have also been associated with the use of these drugs. It is very important that people who are taking prescription medication for High Cholesterol be regularly monitored by their doctor.

What is Cholesto-Rite?

Like High Blood Pressure and high blood Sugar Levels, high levels of LDL cholesterol are recognized as symptoms of imbalance in the system.

Naturopaths recognize that the whole system and not just the symptoms should be treated.

Research has demonstrated that a combination of Natural Remedies, regular Exercise and dietary changes can make a significant difference to LDL levels and reduce or even eliminate the need for prescription drugs.

This is a much healthier approach and one which will have far reaching benefits in terms of quality of life and general well-being.

Recognizing the need for a healthier and more effective approach, without the side effects of the statin drugs, Native Remedies, in conjunction with a practicing Clinical Psychologist, has developed Cholesto-Rite - a 100% Herbal Remedy containing well researched ingredients and manufactured in therapeutic dosage according to the highest pharmaceutical standards.

Cholesto-Rite not only lowers LDL cholesterol, but also increases levels of HDL, the ‘good’ form of cholesterol that helps to remove excessive LDL from the bloodstream and prevent the buildup of Plaque in the arteries.

Regular use of Cholesto-Rite can help to balance the system and prevent Heart Disease and stroke, as well as ensure healthy arteries.

Because Cholesto-Rite also contains Herbs that have anti-oxidant properties, Cholesto-Rite can prevent the damage caused by free radicals in the system. Research has shown that free radicals (unstable oxygen molecules) are implicated in the build up of coronary Plaque, leading to Atherosclerosis, heart attack and even stroke.

Use Cholesto-Rite to:

  • R
  • educe levels of LDL (the ‘bad’ form of cholesterol).
  • Maintain healthy levels of HDL (the ‘good’ form of cholesterol).
  • Fight against harmful free radicals in your body
  • Reduce the risk of coronary Heart Disease, heart attack and stroke.
  • Reverse and protect against dangerous Plaque build up in the arteries and Atherosclerosis
  • Relieve Arthritis inflammation.

Cholesto-Rite contains the following therapeutic Herbs in a 100% vege-capsule.

Red Yeast Rice (Monascus purpurea) is an ancient Chinese remedy which has been used for centuries, both medicinally and in the preservation and coloring of food. The beneficial effects of Red Yeast Rice on balancing blood cholesterol levels have also been clinically demonstrated in a number of double blind, placebo controlling studies involving thousands of people. These studies have demonstrated that Red Yeast Rice can cut levels of LDL (’bad’) cholesterol by as much as 15%, which compares favorably with similar cholesterol lowering effects of prescription drugs.

Gugulipid is an extract of Commiphora mukul, the gum resin of the mukul Myrrh tree. It is a highly prized and well known Ayurvedic herb, used for hundreds of years in the treatment of obesity and Arthritis. Recent studies have shown that gugulipid can be even more effective than many prescription medications in lowering cholesterol and tryglyceride levels in the blood. (between 14 and 27% reduction in cholesterol levels over a 12 week period) Even more importantly, gugulipid has also been shown to increase levels of protective HDL cholesterol. Other studies have demonstrated that regular use of gugulipid has helped to prevent the build up of Plaque in the arteries and even to reverse the build up of existing Plaque. It also prevents blood platelets from sticking together, thereby reducing the risk of blood clots, which often cause heart attacks. Gugulipid has powerful anti-oxidant properties, thereby providing protection and benefit to the entire system.

Aspalathus linearis (Rooibos) is a medicinal herb indigenous to South Africa and is widely used for its restorative and anti-oxidant properties. Rooibos can help to control blood Sugar Levels, lower blood pressure and enhance Immune Functioning. It is an extremely nutritious herb, containing Vitamin C, Alphahydroxy Acid, potassium, copper, magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, manganese and fluoride.

How has Cholesto-Rite helped others?

High Cholesterol runs in my family, but as usual I thought I would never have that problem. When my doctor told me that I had this problem I realized that I had to make some changes. I believe in natural medicine and my doctor knows this so she agreed to let me try your product which I found on the internet. After only one month there was an improvement and after two months my cholesterol levels were down to normal. I am very happy with this product and can recommend it to anyone with a similar problem.” - Joe, S.

“I was taking prescription drugs which I don’t agree with but was not sure about Natural Remedies for such a serious thing as High Cholesterol. I tried Cholesto-Rite with the permission of my doctor and can really say that it works with no side effects as well. I am so happy that I am also going to try MindSoothe for my Depression instead of Prozac which gives me so many problems. Thanks for all the advice and support which you gave me in the emails.” - Fran, K.

Can I use Cholesto-Rite together with myprescription medication for High Cholesterol?

Under some circumstances you can - but NOT without consulting your doctor. The ingredients in Cholesto-Rite are highly effective in reducing cholesterol levels and are generally seen as a healthy and natural alternative to prescription cholesterol drugs.

Research has shown that regular use can be just as effective as the prescription drugs in lowering blood cholesterol levels, with the added benefit of increasing the production of protective HDL levels.

If your doctor is not familiar with Natural Remedies or is unsympathetic towards your quest for a healthier alternative, seek a second opinion.

NOTE: Do not stop using your prescription medication without first consulting your doctor or natural health care practitioner.

How long does Cholesto-Rite take to work?

Studies have shown that the ingredients in Cholesto-Rite will show a significant drop in blood cholesterol levels over a 12 - 16 week period, although many people respond sooner.

How do I use Cholesto-Rite?

Dosage: 1 - 2 Capsules twice or thrice daily depending on severity of the symptoms.

Cholesterol levels should begin to stabilize within 3- 6 weeks, depending on lifestyle, diet and severity of symptoms.

Caution: Safety in Pregnancy has not yet been established. Use only under medical supervision if you are also using prescription medication for High Cholesterol, if you are a transplant patient, have liver problems, drink more than three glasses of alcohol a day or have other serious illnesses.

How long does a bottle last?

One bottle of Cholesto-Rite contains 60 capsules and will lasts 10 - 30 days, depending on dosage needed (see dosage instructions above).

Herbs Can Help Speed The Healing Process

April 12th, 2006

All about healing

Healing after Surgery, injury or childbirth (including Caesarean birth) can be a slow and painful process. Depending on the extent of the injury or operation, this can take days or even months. There may be internal or external wounds and Bruising - or even (in the case of injury) broken bones and damaged organs.

Healing is a process which takes place on many levels - physically and psychologically. Connective tissue, blood vessels and nerve fibers have to restore themselves and regenerate. White blood cells have to remove infection and red blood cells have to bring oxygen rich blood and nutrients to the surrounding area. Rest is important - as is a peaceful and positive mind. Effective pain control helps to make the person comfortable, prevents Stress and permits healing rest.

How can Natural Remedies help?

Our bodies have an inbuilt ability to heal themselves which is one of the greatest miracles of nature! Provided that we receive proper care and nurturing, healing will take place by itself.

Dealing Naturally With Obesity and Weight Loss

April 10th, 2006

Dealing with obesity – avoid short term entrapment

Modern living often means a diet of fast foods and quick energy needs. This can lead to obesity and many people are overweight due to inactivity and years of eating the incorrect foods.

Comfort eating, or eating to fulfill emotional needs is another important cause of weight problems.

While fashion dictates that we need to be slim and attractive, many women embark on a series of yo-yo diets or even purging in order to Lose Weight and conform to society’s vision of Beauty.

This may lead to short-term weight loss, but in the long run it disturbs the Metabolism and makes the weight more and more difficult to lose.

Isn’t it strange that so many people are always Dieting, yet the numbers of obese and overweight people are rising every year?

Years of Dieting have even been shown to cause slow Metabolism which can lead to weight gain.

Smart lifestyle and EcoSlim - the safe, effective approach

Native Remedies has recognized this problem and, together with a leading Clinical Psychologist, has formulated a healthy herbal supplement which can boost Metabolism, improve liver and digestive functioning and help you to get those pounds off without harming your health!

Used as part of a healthy eating plan and a regular Exercise program, EcoSlim can help you to Lose Weight and keep it off forever, leaving you feeling slim and full of Vitality!

How has EcoSlim helped others?

“I tried every diet in the book. I was always on a different diet but if I lost weight it would go straight back on. Your weightloss drops helped me to stay on track and I realized for the first time that I did not have to starve to Lose Weight! The Slimming Drops made a big difference and every time I stood on the scale I had a smile on my face! After two weeks I had already lost 11 lbs, after 6 weeks I weighed 30 lbs less than when I started! I have never felt or looked so good!” - Janey, USA.

“I usually don’t write in but I really felt that I wanted to tell you that EcoSlim did everything it promised to do. I usually Exercise twice a week and am not a big eater, but I just couldn’t Lose Weight, especially in my thighs and hips. I have now lost 6 pounds without any effort. There is much less cellulite too.” - Tabitha, USA.

“I am an emotional eater and I could never stay on a diet. Michele said I should take MindSoothe together with EcoSlim. I have succeeded for the first time in keeping to my diet and I have been eating sensibly with no binging for the last 6 weeks, which is a record for me! I can see the pounds coming off and everyone at work has been complimenting me!” - Malinda M., USA.

EcoSlim gives me energy and I can feel that my body is working better. I have been eating less without trying and I have already lost 10 pounds.” - Wendy, USA.

You’re Always Tired - Could It Be Your Adrenal Glands?

April 4th, 2006

What do your Adrenal Glands do?

The Adrenal Glands are two walnut-sized structures situated above each of your two kidneys. They consist of two separate regions: an inner adrenal medulla surrounded by an outer adrenal cortex.

The function of the Adrenal Glands is performed by a wide variety of hormones released by these structures and is mostly directed at the physiological response to Stress. The medulla is responsible for producing epinephrine and norepinephrine (adrenaline), which control the body’s reaction to Stress and affect blood pressure, heart rate and sweating.

The adrenal cortex produces hormones such as cortisone and aldosterone which are necessary for fluid and electrolyte (salt) balance in the body as well as regulating the use of dietary protein, fats and carbohydrates and controlling inflammation.

What can go wrong with your Adrenal Glands?

As with all structures of the body, the Adrenal Glands are subject to a range of disorders and diseases.

Major health problems can occur when the Adrenal Glands produce too many or too few hormones. Two disorders caused by impaired functioning of these glands are Addison’s disease and Cushing’s syndrome. Addison’s disease is caused by damage or disease to the Adrenal Glands, resulting in a deficiency of the hormone cortisol. The overproduction of cortisol by the Adrenal Glands leads to Cushing’s syndrome.

Cushing’s syndrome may also result when steroid drugs (such as hydrocortisone, prednisone or dexamethasone) are taken over a prolonged period or at high doses. These steroid hormones are often used to treat inflammatory illnesses such as asthma, Rheumatoid Arthritis and inflammatory bowel diseases.

Additionally, long-term treatment with these medications can inhibit normal pituitary function (which usually controls the adrenals) and cause secondary Adrenal Insufficiency. Adrenal Insufficiency or Adrenal fatigue is a common problem characterized by a deficiency of the hormones produced by the Adrenal Glands.

High Stress levels, which are often accompanied by an unhealthy lifestyle, can weaken the Adrenal Glands. When Stress continues over a long time, the Adrenal Glands’ response to this Stress can deplete the body’s hormonal and energy reserves, and the glands may either shrink in size or hypertrophy (enlarge). The overproduction of adrenal hormones caused by prolonged Stress can weaken the Immune System, disrupt the Metabolism, cause weakness, fatigue and a feeling of being run down. It can also interfere with normal sleep and cause a light and unrelaxing sleep state which can make one feel worn out even after a full night’s sleep.

Adrenal Insufficiency is sometimes linked to chronic fatigue and Thyroid Problems as well.

What are the symptoms of Adrenal Disease?

Adrenal Disease may often go unnoticed until far advanced. When symptoms do appear they are often vague and may include:

  • Fatigue
  • Loss of energy
  • Decreased Immune System with recurrent illness
  • Nausea and Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Muscle weakness
  • Dizziness on standing up
  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Decreased tolerance to cold
  • Hair Loss in women
  • Increased pigmentation of skin

How is Adrenal Disease diagnosed?

Adrenal Disease is most commonly diagnosed based on laboratory tests which measure the levels of adrenal hormones (Specifically cortisol) in the blood.

How is Adrenal Disease usually treated?

The specific type of treatment usually prescribed for Adrenal Disease will be based on the underlying cause. Treatment generally takes the form of synthetic hormones which increase the low levels in the body or hormone inhibiting drugs- depending on the disease. Treatment is usually lifelong unless the cause of the disease is removed, such as a tumor which is surgically removed or treated with radiation or chemotherapy.

Can Natural Remedies help?

What are the ingredients of AdrenoBoost?

AdrenoBoost contains the following ingredients in our unique 100% herbal formula:

Borago officinalis (Borage) has been used since ancient times and was well-respected by Celtic warriors who used it to lift their spirits and promote courage before battle. This herb acts as a restorative remedy for the adrenal cortex. Borage is excellent at reviving the functioning of the Adrenal Glands when they have been suppressed by drugs such as steroids. Borage acts as a tonic for adrenals affected by Stress. It is also a soothing and Anti-Inflammatory herb excellent for people recovering from illness or those suffering from Fever.

Eleutherococcus senticosis (Siberian Ginseng) is an overall system tonic and improves Immune Functioning, performance and Stamina. In the 1950’s it was used extensively by Soviet athletes to enhance Athletic Performance. This herb can combat Stress and is a tonic stimulant for the adrenal hormones. In oriental medicine, Ginseng is highly respected and prized as a herb which promotes yang energy, improving circulation, boosting Vitality and acting as an overall systemic invigorator. The active ingredients in Siberian Ginseng, eleutherosides, increase mental performance, physical Stamina and resistance to disease.

Astragalus membranaceous (Huang Qi) is an herb which has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for many centuries as a revitalizing tonic. It is a very useful protector of adrenal cortical function and regulates blood pressure and blood Sugar Levels. Recent research confirms the positive effect of Astragalus on Immune Functioning and its ability to help the body fight against disease. There is also mounting evidence for this herb’s effectiveness in support of cancer patients undergoing radiation and chemotherapy therapies.

How has AdrenoBoost helped others?

“I have been using your AdrenoBoost for a few months now and although I was skeptical that it would help, I was desperate! I have worked in a highly-pressurized, corporate environment for more than a decade and, being a woman, always felt the extra pressure to prove myself as well! All this Stress started to catch up with me in a big way and I began to see my health deteriorate dramatically. My hair was falling out, I lost too much weight and I was always tired no matter how early I got to bed. After a few weeks of using AdrenoBoost and trying to eat more healthily I started to notice a difference: less hair in the shower, I stopped getting every cold that was going around the office and, for the first time in years, I woke up feeling refreshed in the morning. I had forgotten what that felt like! Thank you for an amazing product- it has helped me to regain control.” Debra, USA

“After feeling run-down and generally not myself for almost a year, my doctor suggested I might have Adrenal Fatigue. Having always been one to avoid prescription drugs, I started researching natural products to help my condition. I came across your site and ordered the AdrenoBoost- am I glad I did! I haven’t had such energy and Stamina since my 20’s!” James F, 52 years old.

“I am going to stock up on your AdrenoBoost remedy- I don’t quite know how I survived without it.” Ian, USA

“Five years ago I was diagnosed with Addison’s disease and it was almost a relief to find out that there was something very real wrong with my body. I was put on corticosteroid drugs which helped, but every time I had something stressful happen in my life or I got the Flu I felt like I was back to square one and the doctor had to increase my dose. I didn’t want to be so dependant on these drugs and started to look into alternative treatment. I found your product on the internet and showed the information to my doctor- he was cynical but said I could try it as long as it was under his monitoring. After a few months on AdrenoBoost we had to drastically reduce my steroid medications and I felt better than I had in a long time. My doctor was impressed and so am I! Thank you so much for providing a safe and effective alternative, I am going to tell everyone I know about your Natural Remedies.” K.D.
