Dealing With Digestive Disorders

March 24th, 2006

Digestive Disorders

Digestive Disorders can be confusing! Here are some definitions.

Remember that it is always best to consult your doctor for advice on chronic Digestive Problems that do not respond to changes in diet and lifestyle.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) - also known as ’spastic colon’ is one of the most common chronic health disorders in the world and affects up to 20% of the population. It is a dysfunction of the bowel and large intestine, causing lower abdominal pain, cramping, Constipation and diarrhea. Causes have not been conclusively identified, but are thought to involve problems in communication between the bowel and the brain.

Crohn’s Disease - is one of the Inflammatory Bowel Diseases. It causes inflammation in the digestive tract (usually the small intestine), resulting in Chronic Pain and diarrhea. There may also be rectal bleeding, weight loss and even Fever. There are different theories about what causes Crohn’s Disease, but many doctors believe that the Immune System reacts to a virus or a bacterium, causing chronic inflammation in the intestine. Crohn’s Disease tends to run in families.

Diverticulosis - is a condition in which ‘pockets’ or diverticula form on the wall of the colon or the large intestine, usually on the left side. This is a result of weaknesses in the bowel wall. Symptoms include left lower abdominal pain, diarrhea, Cramps, changes in bowel habits or even rectal bleeding . Diverticulosis is associated with a diet high in processed foods and low in fibre and fluids. Diverticulitis occurs when there is an infection in the ‘pockets’ or diverticula of the intestinal wall. Diverticulosis can be effectively treated by increasing dietary fibre and fluid intake and using Herbs to soothe and tone the lining of the digestive tract.

Ulcerative Colitis - is also an Inflammatory Bowel Disease and is associated with inflammation and ulcers in the inner lining of the colon and rectum. People who suffer from Ulcerative Colitis usually alternate between periods of flare ups and remission, often influenced by Stress, diet or illness. Symptoms include rectal bleeding, diarrhea, abdominal pain and cramping and an urgent need to empty the bowels.

Gastritis - is an inflammation of the Stomach Lining. It may be caused by eating spoiled food, by bacteria, Viruses, by certain chemicals, as well as by Stress and lifestyle factors. Symptoms include Nausea, Vomiting, Fever, diarrhea and Cramps. Gastritis may be acute or chronic. People who suffer from chronic Gastritis should investigate dietary changes, Stress management and removal of alcohol, cigarettes and Spices.

GERD - or Acid Reflux Disease - is a condition in which the stomach acid ‘backs up’ or refluxes into the oesophagus due to dysfunction of the lower esophageal sphincter. This causes pain and burning, often called Heartburn - although it has nothing to do with the heart. While we all have Heartburn at some stage, persistent Heartburn (more than two or three episodes a week) may suggest Acid Reflux Disease. Other symptoms include a sour taste in the mouth, swallowing difficulties, upset stomach and even coughing and hoarseness. Some causes of Acid Reflux Disease, or GERD, include a hiatal hernia, obesity, smoking, alcohol abuse and certain foods. Symptoms can be greatly relieved or prevented by lifestyle and dietary changes as well as the use of Herbs known to promote healthy digestion. If symptoms persist, it is always wise to consult your doctor to prevent further complications.

Heartburn, Indigestion, Acid Reflux, gas, Bloating, diarrhea, Constipation - are all symptoms which we experience from time to time. If you are occasionally troubled by these symptoms, you can obtain quick relief by using Native Remedies DigestAssist Drops, especially formulated for rapid relief of uncomfortable digestive complaints. If you have these symptoms regularly, this may indicate incorrect diet, unhealthy lifestyle or one of the conditions described above.

Why try Natural Remedies like Herbs to treat Digestive Disorders?

There are many synthetic over the counter and prescription medicines to treat digestive complaints and disorders like IBS, Crohn’s Disease, Gastritis, Acid Reflux Disease (GERD), Diverticulosis and Ulcerative Colitis.

These include Anti-Inflammatories like Sulfasalazine, Asacol, Pentasa and Dipentum, corticosteroids, drugs that suppress the Immune System, antibiotics and other medication for symptomatic relief.

While these synthetic medications may make a big difference to quality of life for people suffering from Digestive Disorders and dysfunction, many also come with side effects like Nausea, Vomiting, Heartburn, headache, diarrhea and even greater risk of infection.

Immunosuppressant drugs may also lower the body’s natural resistance to illness.

Naturopaths recognize that the whole person must be treated in order to maximize health and reduce symptoms of imbalance in the system.

Research has indicated that a combination of Natural Remedies, regular Exercise and dietary changes can make a significant difference to the lives of people suffering from Digestive Disorders and complaints.

While many of these problems are strongly linked to modern eating habits, Digestive Disorders have been around since the dawn of time. This means that the natural approach has a long history of excellent results without side effects and further damage to the system.

What are Gastronic Dr. and DigestAssist?

Recognizing the need for a healthier and more effective approach, without the side effects of the prescription drugs, Native Remedies has developed Gastronic Dr. and DigestAssist - both 100% Herbal Remedies containing well researched ingredients and manufactured in therapeutic dosage according to the highest pharmaceutical standards.

How have Gastronic Dr. and DigestAssist helped others?

“I have struggled with IBS for years and years and used to despair that I could lead a normal life. My doctor told me to ‘live with it’ . I wanted to let you know that I have tried a huge number of ’solutions'’ including Natural Remedies and prescription medicines, but none have come close to helping me like your products have. I take Gastronic Dr. every day and I NEVER go out without the DigestAssist Drops! If I do have an attack I can control it quite quickly and the symptoms are far less severe. I have to confess that I smoke and like my toddy at night, but I think that if I reduce or stop this as advised by Michele, I will finally have complete relief, no thanks to my doctor but lots of thanks to Native Remedies!” Carlos.

“I used to be able to eat anything but as I got older I had to be so careful with my food. Things improved after I cut out dairy products but I was always worrying about stomach Cramps, Heartburn and gas. One good thing was that I lost weight but I did not enjoy my food and even stopped going out. Since using your products, things have changed for the better and I can control my symptoms by myself without chewing on expensive tablets all the time.” Lydia.

“Thanks to your sound advice and superb products, my Digestive Problems are a thing of the past. I have recommended them to a girlfriend who has Crohn’s Disease and she’s already seeing results after only two weeks.” Sidney.

Gastronic Dr. contains the following therapeutic Herbs in a 100% vege-capsule.

Matricaria recutita, also known as German Chamomile, is a medicinal herb which has been used by European naturopaths for centuries. Its Anti-Inflammatory, anti-spasmodic and calming properties make it an extremely effective treatment for Digestive Disorders.

Filipendula ulmaria, or Meadowsweet, is an Anti-Inflammatory, soothing digestive remedy which helps to protect the digestive tract and reduce stomach acid secretions. It is also effective in reducing the pain of Digestive Disorders and ulcers and is similar in structure to the synthetic drug called acetylsalicylate, or aspirin - without the side effects commonly associated with aspirin.

Ulmus fulva, or Slippery Elm, is one of the most effective Herbs used in reducing digestive pain and irritation and also protects and soothes the lining of the stomach and digestive tract due to its high mucilage content. Only bark from top quality Slippery Elm is used in Gastronic Dr.

Sutherlandia frutescens, also known as ‘Cancer Bush’ or ‘Kankerbossie’ is a medicinal herb exclusively found in Southern Africa and has been used by indigenous people for thousands of years to treat chronic and acute digestive complaints, internal cancers and as a powerful tonic. Recent research has confirmed its adaptogenic properties. Sutherlandia contains a number of highly active compounds, including pinitol, L-canavanine and the amino acid, GABA. L-canavanine is a strong L-argine antagonist that has documented anti-cancer and anti-viral activity (Swaffer et al. 1995, Crooks and Rosenthal, 1994, Ostlund and Sherman, 1996)

DigestAssist contains the following therapeutic Herbs in convenient and fast-acting drop format.

Zingiber officinale, commonly known as Ginger, has a long history of medicinal use in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic (Indian) medicine. Modern research confirms its effectiveness in relieving the symptoms of Nausea, Vomiting, Indigestion, flatulence and dizziness. Working mainly in the digestive tract, Zinziber boosts digestive fluids and neutralises acids, making it an effective alternative to anti-Nausea medication, but without the usual unpleasant side effects. Zinziber has strong Anti-Inflammatory and pain relieving properties and is also used to treat Arthritis and other inflammatory diseases .

Foeniculum vulgare, also called Fennel, was a favorite herb in medieval times and was used to stop stomach rumbles and Colic. It was commonly used after meals to prevent flatulence, Indigestion, Colic and other Digestive Problems. Fennel has strong calmative and Anti-Inflammatory properties.

Mentha piperita, one of the most effective of the mint Herbs, has been used for centuries to relieve Indigestion, Nausea and Heartburn. Modern research has demonstrated its effectiveness in soothing the symptoms of Diverticulosis, IBS and other Digestive Disorders. Mentha piperita is widely cultivated for medicinal uses and also has Anti-Inflammatory and anti-spasmodic properties. It relaxes the muscles of the digestive tract and stimulates the flow of natural digestive juices and bile, thereby assisting healthy digestion.

Pelargoneum graveolens, also known as ‘maagpyn bossie’ (stomach pain bush) is a traditional medicinal herb used by indigenous people of South Africa. It has a wide variety of uses and is an effective calmative and anti-spasmodic herb, reducing stomach Cramps and pain.

Can I use DigestAssist and Gastronic Dr. along with my prescription and over the counter medication?

The Herbs used in Gastronic Dr. and DigestAssist have a high safety profile and there is no evidence to suggest any negative interaction with prescription and over the counter medication for Digestive Disorders.

As always, consult your doctor before discontinuing or changing any prescription medicine.

How long do these remedies take to work?

Natural Help For Eczema

March 2nd, 2006

Eczema often runs in families and may be exacerbated by Stress or contact with certain chemicals or other Allergens.

What is Eczema?

Eczema is an inflammation of the skin and may be associated with an Allergic reaction, although the cause is often unknown. Childhood Eczema is sometimes found behind the knee or in the bend of an elbow and will often clear up by the time the child reaches puberty.

Eczema affects more than 15 million Americans and ten percent of all children have Eczema.

The most common of all eczemas is Atopic and has been linked with asthma and hay Fever. People of all ages can be affected, but there seems to be a trend for it within some families.

A common symptom is itchiness that can become very uncomfortable. The skin has an overall dryness, can become very red, and highly inflamed. Persistent scratching only worsens the condition and can cause skin infections.

If infected, the skin can weep and have cracks in it. Skin hydration must be maintained. Eczema Cream can be used for both skin hydration and to reduce inflammation.

The Allergic Contact Eczema results when the body has a reaction to a skin contact with a substance that the Immune System finds unacceptable. The reaction may be immediate, or can develop over an extended period of time. Some of the typical substances are nickel, perfumes, cloth, rubber, and tin. Some of the offending substances may be found of the commonest of items, such as rings, buckles, the buttons on clothes, watches, and other jewelry.

Irritant Contact Eczema is caused by contact with substance that could be encountered daily, such as Soaps, certain chemicals, and detergents. Hairdressers and beauticians often find themselves with Rashes and inflamed skin. As with atopic Eczema, keeping the skin moist can help in preventing an outbreak. Herbal products, unlike remedies containing drugs, can be used often during the day without any adverse side affects.

Infantile Seborrhoeic Eczema can be very common for children under 1 year of age. The reason for this condition, also called Cradle Cap is not fully understood. While it is not considered to be serious and causes the baby no unwell feelings, it can be treated with herbal products to help clear the condition. It usually lasts only a few months.

Adult Seborrhoeic Eczema can be more serious than the infant version. It can be found in the scalp and can spread to the face, ears, neck, and chest. The skin becomes inflamed, red, and can flake. Using a product, like Eczema Cream, that can hydrate the skin while also protecting again infections should offer quick relief for this Eczema.

Varicose Eczema is a condition found in the lower leg. People in their middle to late years are found most likely to encounter this Eczema. Poor circulation is suspected. The ankles are most often affected and if the skin is left untreated, ulcers can develop. Typical treatment is an emollient, especially one that can improved the general health of the skin.

Discoid Eczema most often is an adult condition. It appears as a small, coin shaped redness of the skin. Most often it is found on the trunk or lower legs. These can erupt or weep. Emollients are a usual treatment, but care should be taken that the skin does not become infected. (treatment tips)

How can Eczema Cream help?

Regular use of Eczema Cream will:

It is recommended that Eczema Cream be used together with a course of Immunity Plus to strengthen the Immune System and help prevent further outbreaks of Eczema in the future.

Use Eczema Cream for relief from symptoms including:

  • Red, itchy and Scaly Skin
  • Inflamed areas that may weep or bleed when scratched
  • Blistering
  • Cracked and painful skin
  • Risk of infection in severe case.

How has Eczema Cream helped others?

“My child is four years old and has suffered from Eczema almost all his life. He is always miserable and itchy and I really believe that the Eczema is affecting his Self Confidence and development because he is unhappy all the time. Your Eczema cream really helped to soothe the redness and take away the itchiness. At least he is sleeping at night without waking up and he cries much less now.” Sylvia, 34 years old.

“I used to have bad Eczema as a child but it cleared up nicely. Now I only get it when I am Stressed or when my skin comes into contact with some cleaning chemicals. When it flares up I use your Eczema cream straight away and it soon goes away - thank you for making a product that works!” Henry, 29 years old

What does Eczema Cream contain?

Ingredients (25g): Vitamin E Oil, Hydrocotyle Tr., Curcuma Tr., Vinca Minor Tr., Graphites 3X in a cream base.

How do I use Eczema Cream?

Dosage: Apply to affected areas twice daily

How long until I see results?

Eczema Cream will give relief from irritation and discomfort almost immediately. Continued use will reduce the Eczema patches until they disappear or are greatly reduced, depending on severity.

Thereafter, Eczema Cream can be used whenever a new outbreak occurs, as early as possible to prevent the scratching that usually exacerbates it.

How long will a tube last?

(25g) Approximately three times daily will last 20 - 25 days, depending on area covered.

Some may experience symptomatic relief within days, while others can take up to 6 weeks before an effect is felt.

Often, as in the case of all good tonics, a gradual improvement is felt over time.

How long does a bottle last?

Each Native Remedies Triple Complex Slimmer’s Assist bottle contains 360 tablets.

If you are taking Triple Complex Tissue Salts as a preventative (2 - 4 tablets three times a day), one bottle will last approximately a month.

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.

Dealing With Halitosis (Bad Breath)

February 12th, 2006

While Bad Breath or Halitosis may sometimes be caused by poor oral hygiene, there may also be other underlying causes which contribute to Bad Breath and are often difficult to treat, despite all efforts to follow a healthy mouth and teeth cleaning routine.

This can cause great distress and even result in problems with relationships and difficulties in the workplace.

What causes Halitosis or Bad Breath?

There are a number of causes of Bad Breath, including:

  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Gum Disease (e.g. gum boils, abscesses, spongy gums, gingivitis)
  • Multiplication of odor-causing bacteria in the mouth and digestive tract
  • Candidiasis
  • Chronic sinus infection
  • Certain medications (especially those that cause dry mouth as a side effect)
  • Smoking
  • Some foods can cause Bad Breath (Garlic, onions, anchovies, high protein diet)
  • Poor digestion and Sluggish Liver
  • Constipation

How do I know if I have Bad Breath?

Sometimes Bad Breath is noticed by an unpleasant or bitter taste in your mouth.

You can also check the smell of your saliva by licking the skin on your inner wrist and then smelling it. If it has an offensive odor, then the chances are that your breath is not as sweet as you would like it to be!

However, it is also possible to suffer from Bad Breath without being aware of it. If you notice that people tend to step away from you when you speak, turn their heads or cover their mouths, then Bad Breath may be a problem.

The best way to find out is to ask someone who you can trust to tell you the truth.

What is HaliTonic?

HaliTonic is not just another product to freshen breath!

It is a unique combination of biochemic tissue salts and selected medicinal Herbs which are effective in cleansing the system of all bacterial or putrefactive conditions.

Acting as a system Cleanser and detoxifier and promoter of healthy Liver Functioning, regular use of HaliTonic can help to prevent Bad Breath by treating the underlying causes and will also assist with other body odor problems such as foul smelling feet, stools, Gassy Bowels, underarm odor, etc.

Native Remedies HaliTonic Contains:

Kalium Phosphate (Kali. Phos.) 6C is a biochemic tissue salt which is a constituent of all fluids in the body. Kali. Phos. has an antiseptic action and helps to reduce or stop decay of body tissue. It is well known as a Cleanser of any putrefactive conditions such as Halitosis (Bad Breath), foul smelling flatulence and stools. This is also an excellent Nerve Tonic and natural tranquilizer.

Silicon Dioxide (Silica) 6C: is also known as the ‘homeopathic surgeon’ due to its unique ability to cleanse the cells of toxins and rid the body of bad odors.

This biochemic tissue salt is also frequently prescribed for Gum Disease (including gum boils and mouth abscess), mouth ulcers and chronic mucous infections (e.g. sinus infections). Silica acts as a natural Cleanser and purifier and will also eliminate all foreign matter in the body. For this reason Silica should not be used by people with any type of prosthesis, breast implants, pace makers, metal plates, pins or artificial tubes in the body.

Foeniculum vulgare (Sweet Fennel) has been used for many centuries as a Diuretic, anti-spasmodic and calmative herb. It contains an Aniseed-flavored Essential Oil containing mostly anethole, as well as fenchone, both of which are thought to account for its anti-spasmodic and Diuretic properties. Fennel is an excellent digestive tonic, which also helps to relieve gas. Fennel seeds have been long used as an aid to sweeten the breath.

Carduus marianus (Milk Thistle) is regarded as one of the most important herbal liver tonics and restoratives and helps to restore healthy Liver Functioning, bile production and digestion, thereby helping as a eliminator of toxins in the body and the digestive tract. Medical use of Milk Thistle may be traced back more than 2000 years. Milk Thistle has been subject to many clinical trials which clearly demonstrate its effectiveness.

I had a problem with Bad Breath for so many years and spent a fortune on things like mouth washes and other junk that was all supposed to work. I was hardly ever without a mint in my mouth. Without HaliTonic I’m sure that this would have continued for ever as believe me, I have tried everything! In less than a week I noticed that the unpleasant taste in my mouth was going and even my mother said that my breath was much better. I cant believe that my problem has been solved after all this expense and time and simply cannot thank you enough!” - Cecilia

“I can recommend HaliTonic to anyone who has suffered from Halitosis. This product has really worked for me.” - Denzil J

“Not only has your remedy cleared my Bad Breath, but also my smelly feet and other unmentionables.

Natural Help For HyperThyroidism

January 19th, 2006

What is Hyperthyroidism?

Hyperthyroidism is a medical condition in which the Thyroid Gland produces too much Thyroid Hormone (called T3 and T4). As the Thyroid Gland plays a crucial role in regulating Metabolism and has effects on nearly all organs in the body, an Overactive Thyroid can have far reaching effects on health and body functioning.

What are the symptoms of Hyperthyroidism?

An Overactive Thyroid can result in the following symptoms. If you feel that these apply to you, please consult your doctor for an assessment.

How is Hyperthyroidism diagnosed?

The diagnosis of Hyperthyroidism is easily made by means of a blood test to measure levels of the Thyroid Hormone (T3 and T4) in the blood. Levels of a hormone called TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) secreted by the pituitary gland, will also be measured. Other tests may be done to measure how the thyroid uses iodine and to determine which type of Hyperthyroidism the person has.

What causes Hyperthyroidism?

The most common cause of an Overactive Thyroid is Graves Disease. Graves Disease is an auto-immune illness in which the Immune System begins to attack parts of ones own body - in this case the Thyroid Gland.

Other causes of Hyperthyroidism include nodules on the Thyroid Gland, inflammation of the thyroid (Thyroiditis) and over-treatment of Hypothyroidism (Underactive Thyroid).

How is Hyperthyroidism usually treated?

Hyperthyroidism may be treated with anti-thyroid drugs like methimazole and propylthiouracil (PTU) - which block the thyroid from producing Thyroid Hormone.

Although these drugs may quickly bring the thyroid into balance, they can have side effects such as itching, Rash, Fever, liver inflammation or a deficiency of white blood cells. Often the Hyperthyroidism comes back after these drugs are discontinued.

For this reason, orthodox medicine often recommends that the thyroid be permanently put out of action by means of radioactive iodine treatment or surgical removal of all or part of the thyroid. While this can permanently solve the problem of Hyperthyroidism, an unwanted side effect is often symptoms related to Hypothyroidism.

People who have had their Thyroid Gland removed or inactivated by radioactive iodine treatment usually have to take medication for Hypothyroidism for the rest of their lives. Other medication, for example beta-blockers, may be prescribed to control some of the symptoms of Hyperthyroidism.

Can Natural Remedies help?

If left untreated, Hyperthyroidism can be a significant threat to health and may cause serious complications.

Mild Hyperthyroidism often responds well to complimentary medicine and a holistic approach (including diet) and may help to calm down the thyroid and remove the need for radioactive iodine treatment or Surgery. This should be discussed with your doctor, homeopath or naturopath before home treatment of Overactive Thyroid is begun.

What is ThyroSoothe?

ThyroSoothe is a 100% Herbal Remedy containing Herbs known for their ability to soothe and normalize the Overactive Thyroid and related symptoms, naturally decrease levels of T4 and TSH and inhibit the binding of antibodies to the thyroid.

ThryoSoothe is formulated for Hyperthyroidism (Overactive Thyroid), please refer to ThyroidAssist for Hypothyroidism (Underactive Thyroid)

Use ThyroSoothe:

  • To calm, soothe and normalize overactive thyroids
  • To reduce the symptoms associated with Hyperthyroidism and Graves Disease
  • To prevent overproduction of T4 and TSH hormones
  • To block the attachment of antibodies to the thyroid cells

ThryoSoothe is formulated for Hyperthyroidism (Overactive Thyroid), please refer to ThyroidAssist for Hypothyroidism (Underactive Thyroid)

What are the ingredients of ThyroSoothe?

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

Lycopus virginicus: - also called Bugleweed, helps to normalize the Overactive Thyroid. Lythospermic and other Organic acids found in Bugleweed help to decrease the levels of certain hormones in the body - including TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone produced by the pituitary gland) and T4 (produced by the thyroid). It can also inhibit the binding of antibodies to the Thyroid Gland, helping to relieve the symptoms of Grave’s Disease.

Melissa officinalis: - also called Lemon Balm, is well-known for its soothing and calming properties and is widely prescribed by herbalists for the relief of Anxiety and Insomnia. Some studies have also suggested that Melissa also helps to soothe the Overactive Thyroid gland, particularly in the case of Grave’s Disease. This herb may help to block the attachment of antibodies to the thyroid cells, as well as preventing TSH from stimulating the Overactive Thyroid.

Leonurus cardica: - also called Motherwort has traditionally been used to soothe heart palpitations as well as menstrual irregularity and Anxiety, making it an excellent addition to this remedy.

(ThyroSoothe contains no animal products, gluten, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives)

How has ThyroSoothe helped others?

“This is to let you know that I used ThyroSoothe with my doctor’s consent and we have both been very pleased with the results. My thyroid has quietened down and I have no more Anxiety and heart palpitations, which were the worst. ” Doreen S.

ThyroSoothe really helps! I had all the symptoms of Overactive Thyroid and every single one of them is gone after only 6 weeks of use. I felt calmer right from the beginning.” Sarah

“Two of my friends had to have their thyroid removed because of Hyperthyroidism and when I was diagnosed I wanted to avoid this due to the weight gain and other problems. My doctor would not consider a trial and I went for a second opinion and was lucky to get the new doctor to agree to work with me. The results have been excellent and it looks like I will be able to avoid Surgery. Thank you so much for this remedy and all of your help!” Z.M.

How do I use ThyroSoothe?

ThyroSoothe comes in convenient tincture form and is diluted in water or juice.

Please note that home treatment of severe Hyperthyroidism or Grave’s Disease is not recommended. Please ask your doctor or homeopath to monitor Thyroid Functioning to prevent complications.

Dosage:

Dilute 15 drops in about 1/4 cup water or juice three times daily.

Caution: Not recommended for hypothyroid conditions. Do not combine with other thyroid medication unless under medical supervision.

Safety during Pregnancy and breastfeeding has not been established.

NOTE: May be used together with PureCalm for additional calming effects - especially in the case of Anxiety related to Hyperthyroidism.

How long till I see results?

With regular use, results should be noticed within 3 - 6 weeks, although some people may respond sooner.

How long does one bottle last?

One bottle of ThyroSoothe should last 3 - 4 weeks.

A 90-day supply is offered at a discount (see the Buy 2 Get 1 FREE special below).

What else can help?

  1. Ice packs on the throat can help to reduce inflammation

  3. Stay away from refined foods, shellfish, wheat, diary products, caffeine and alcohol.
  4. Avoid food and supplements containing iodine.

Dealing With Childhood Insomnia

January 17th, 2006

“Children have problems too! Many medicines for children contain additives, artificial colors and preservatives. Some are addictive and others may cause side effects which end up being worse than the condition that they are supposed to treat. Even some herbal medicines should not be given to children under the age of 12, unless supervised by a health care practitioner! Parents are understandably concerned and may feel confused about what they can and can not give their children.

As a Psychologist and as a parent, I have seen a need for safe, effective and healthy Natural Remedies especially formulated for children’s health. Together with Native Remedies, I have spent a lot of time in researching and formulating a range of Natural Remedies especially for young children. All remedies are herbal or homeopathic and carefully chosen for maximum effect and maximum safety, to safely heal and solve your child’s problem - naturally.

While Herbal Remedies help to heal and promote health, Homeopathic Remedies work by strengthening the child’s own body to heal itself. The remedies are non-addictive and presented in child-safe doses. No artificial colors or preservatives are used and manufacturing is in accordance with the highest pharmaceutical standards”. - Michele Carelse, Clinical Psychologist

What causes Sleep Problems in children?

We all struggle to sleep sometimes and children are no exception. Sometimes Sleep Problems become chronic and a pattern of Insomnia sets in. This can cause much frustration for children and their parents and can even result in relationship difficulties if the problem is not addressed. If you find yourself struggling to put your child to sleep night after night, then it is important to do something about it.

Here are some of the main causes of Insomnia in children and babies:

  • Teething
  • Lack of routine and bedtime ritual
  • Childhood Depression, Anxiety or Trauma
  • Family problems
  • Intestinal worms
  • Diet high in sugar and stimulants like coffee and tea

What is Serenite Jr. and how can it help?

Serenite Jr. is a safe and effective Herbal Remedy specially formulated by our Clinical Psychologist to calm and Relax young children and induce a state of Drowsiness.

Serenite Jr. can safely be used by all children and babies over the age of 6 months and is gentle and non-addictive and will not drug your child. Together with consistent discipline, a regular routine and night time ritual and a loving home environment, Serenite Jr. can help to break poor and irregular sleep patterns and restore peace to your home.

As a parent, you will know that sleep remedies especially formulated for children are few and far between. In desperation many parents resort to using pain killers, cough medicines, Antihistamines and other over the counter medicines. This is very bad for children and can seriously affect their health. These medicines have not been designed to use as sleep AIDS for children and regular use can result in addiction, nightmares and chronic Insomnia.

Doctors sometimes prescribe scheduled drugs for children to help them sleep. Once again, these drugs can result in addiction and do not solve the problem in the long term. Side effects are common and children are often very Drowsy in the morning.

Serenite Jr. is different because it is formulated especially for children and uses Herbs and Homeopathic Remedies in a natural formula which is safe and effective.

Use Serenite Jr. to:

Not only does it promote Drowsiness, but it also calms digestive upsets and Colic, soothes teething toddlers and relaxes Anxious children.

Passiflora incarnata.

BronchoSoothe - Open Airways Naturally

January 14th, 2006

Use BronchoSoothe to immediately:

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.

How can herbal and homeopathic medicines help asthma?

Herbal and Homeopathic Treatment of asthma and other Respiratory Conditions can be extremely effective.

Depending on the severity of the asthma, naturopathic asthma relief will be gained by reducing or eliminating the need for the synthetic drugs and inhalers and can also be safely used to complement conventional treatment of asthma.

Used as part of a wider, holistic lifestyle management, herbal and homeopathic medicines can bring significant relief to sufferers of asthma - without the side effects or other complications of the conventional drugs.

What is Triple Complex BronchoSoothe?

Triple Complex BronchoSoothe contains our amazing combination of biochemic tissue salts.

Placed under the tongue at the first signs of an Asthma Attack, BronchoSoothe opens up the air passages, reduces bronchospasm and inflammation, soothes Anxiety and allows easy and normal Breathing to take place.

How do I use Triple Complex BronchoSoothe?

Triple Complex BronchoSoothe comes in small sucking tablets which are placed under the tongue to dissolve. The tablets may also be dissolved in a little warm water and sipped or administered in a baby’s bottle.

Use Triple Complex BronchoSoothe to open up the chest, reduce bronchospasm and restore natural Breathing at the very first signs of an Asthma Attack

Children up to 6 years: Suck two tablets every 10 minutes until normal Breathing is established.

Children over 6 years and adults: Suck two - four tablets every 10 minutes until normal Breathing is established.

NOTE: Triple Complex BronchoSoothe can also be effectively used to treat bronchitis, Flu and other chest infections in children and adults alike.

Can this natural medicine be used together with prescription drugs for asthma?

Yes - Triple Complex BronchoSoothe can safely be used together with your prescription medication and will not interact negatively with synthetic drugs.

How long does one bottle last?

Depending on age and frequency of attacks, one bottle of Triple Complex BronchoSoothe can last a month or longer.

Tip: Use our BioVent Natural Asthma Remedy every day to strengthen the chest and improve Respiratory Functioning and health. Used regularly, BioVent is the perfect companion remedy to Triple Complex BronchoSoothe.

How has Triple Complex BronchoSoothe helped others?

“I have used your products for asthma with great success. I notice that my attacks are less frequent and much milder. When I feel my chest tightening up I immediately suck four BronchoSoothe tablets every 10 minutes as prescribed and the symptoms disappear in no time. This is the most effective treatment I have used.” DH, Florida

“I have been dependent on an inhaler for many years and have hardly needed it at all since starting with BronchoSoothe. I can’t believe how quickly my chest relaxes and 99% of the time the Asthma Attack disappears. I can recommend BronchoSoothe with no hesitation” Jamie L.

“My son of 5 suffers from asthma and I wanted to thank you so much for recommending the BronchoSoothe. We have been very impressed at the way it works so quickly. He has not needed his inhaler at all in the past 3 1/2 months. After the success of BronchoSoothe I have ordered your BioVent Drops to use on a daily basis. We are very hopeful that using these two products together will help our son grow out of his asthma problem altogether. Thanks for a really good product!” Gillian B.

Managing Diabetes Naturally

January 12th, 2006

What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a chronic biochemical disorder which affects the body’s ability to use carbohydrates, sugars and starches. People with Diabetes are not able to produce sufficient Insulin or are unable to use the Insulin they produce effectively enough to break down glucose or sugar in the blood and make it available to the body.

More than 16 million Americans alone suffer from Diabetes. Diabetes is often referred to as an epidemic in the Western World today.

There are two main types of Diabetes, referred to as Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes.

Type 1 Diabetes usually surfaces in childhood and is usually associated with the inability of the pancreas to produce Insulin. People with Type 1 Diabetes are also called Insulin-Dependent because they have to take Insulin for life.

Type 11 Diabetes is also called Adult Onset Diabetes and usually occurs after the age of 40. People with Type 11 Diabetes do produce Insulin in the pancreas, but their body cells have become resistant to it.

Although people with controlled Diabetes can lead a normal healthy life, uncontrolled Diabetes means chronically elevated blood Sugar Levels which slowly destroy Proteins in the body, causing considerable damage to tissues and organs.

Complications from untreated or poorly controlled Diabetes include Kidney Damage, Heart Disease, nerve damage, and even blindness.

How do I know whether I have Diabetes?

Diabetes must be diagnosed by a medical doctor, endocrinologist, homeopath or naturopath. However here are some of the more common symptoms.

If you are at all concerned about whether you have Diabetes, especially if you are overweight and have a family history of Diabetes, please seek medical advice.

Some Symptoms of Diabetes:

  • Frequent and excessive urination
  • Always thirsty
  • Chronic fatigue, lethargy and weakness
  • Cuts and wounds never seem to heal normally
  • Weight loss without Dieting
  • Loss of Libido
  • Numbness and tingling in hands and feet
  • Recurring infections, especially Urinary Tract Infections, Thrush and Athletes Foot
  • Blurred vision

What causes Diabetes?

There are no clear answers about the causes of Type 1 Diabetes in which the pancreas stops producing Insulin. Some theorists believe that Type 1 Diabetes may be an auto-immune response or could be caused by a virus.

Type 11 Diabetes, which begins in adulthood, is strongly linked to obesity and an unhealthy lifestyle.

Both Type 1 and Type 11 Diabetes are known to have a strong genetic link. This means that if you have people in your family who have Diabetes, then it is even more important to follow a healthy diet, Exercise regularly and to take supplements and Herbal Remedies which can help to prevent Diabetes. (see below for more tips on healthy lifestyles for diabetics).

Can Herbal Remedies and dietary supplements help?

There is a great deal of evidence to suggest that the use of carefully chosen Herbal Remedies and dietary supplements can help to both prevent Diabetes and to keep it under control in those who have already developed it.

Along with the correct lifestyle changes, Herbal Remedies and dietary supplements can reduce or eliminate the need for prescription medication and can also aid in preventing some of the tissue and organ damage associated with uncontrolled blood Sugar Levels.

What is Insulate Plus

Insulate Plus is a complex Herbal Remedy that assists in the treatment and prevention of Diabetes.

Like all Native Remedies products, it is developed with care by our practicing Clinical Psychologist, is 100% natural and is manufactured according to the highest pharmaceutical standards. Individual ingredients are well-researched and have been put to the test over the years as a complement to the treatment of real people with real problems.

Can I use Insulate Plus together with Insulin and my prescription Diabetic medication?

Yes, you can - but NOT without first consulting your doctor. Insulate Plus is very effective in controlling blood Sugar Levels and improving the body’s ability to use Insulin.

This means that blood Sugar Levels must be monitored in people who are also taking prescription Diabetic medicine as it is highly likely that their prescription medication will have to be reduced or even stopped altogether.

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

Is Insulate Plus recommended if I am pre-Diabetic, at risk for Diabetes or have a family history of Diabetes?

Absolutely! Many people with borderline Diabetic symptoms or those at risk for Diabetes will benefit from the regular use of these remedies.

Remember that it is also important to make sure that you follow a healthy lifestyle in order to effectively control the risks of Diabetes. (see tips on Diabetes prevention below)

Use Insulate Plus regularly to:

  • Balance blood Sugar Levels, thereby reducing or removing the need for Insulin or Hypoglycemic medication
  • Enlarge the Islets of Langerhans in the pancreas, which are responsible for Insulin production
  • Remove the taste for sweet foods
  • Improve Circulation, especially to the feet and hands, thereby preventing Diabetic problems with feet and improving the healing of wounds
  • Improve blood flow to the optic fibres, helping to prevent Diabetes-related eye disease
  • Assist with the breakdown of fats, balance cholesterol levels and help to reduce the risk of Heart Disease

What else can I do to help myself?

Exercise regularly. It has been shown that people who Exercise regularly are 50% less likely to develop Type 11 Diabetes.

Eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables as well as foods containing whole grains, which contain Vitamin B and chromium, both known to be important in controlling blood Sugar Levels.

If you are overweight, lose it! Obesity is one of the major risk factors in Type 11 Diabetes.

Reduce your intake of refined and processed foods containing high fat and Sugar Levels.

Insulate Plus may also be combined with Vizu-All Plus for visual problems associated with Diabetes, as well as macular disease and Cataracts.

How has Insulate Plus helped others?

“I recently visited my doctor because I felt tired all the time. He said that I was at risk for Diabetes due to my bad eating habits :-( My grandmother had Diabetes so I know I have to be careful. I started taking Insulate Plus and my doctor can’t believe the difference! ” Janice L.

Gymnema sylvestre: A well-known and highly respected Ayurvedic remedy which is also known as the ’sugar killer’ as it is said to remove the taste for sweet foods. Gymnema Sylvestre has been used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat Diabetes for many centuries and can improve blood sugar control, thereby reducing the need for Insulin and Hypoglycemic medication .

Galega officinalis: Research has suggested that the use of Galega officinalis can enlarge the Islets of Langerhans in the pancreas, which are responsible for the production on Insulin.

Ginkgo biloba: An extremely effective herb used in Traditional Chinese Medicine and derived from one of the oldest trees on earth. Studies indicate that Ginkgo Biloba has a beneficial effect on peripheral and cerebral circulation and can therefore help to prevent the tissue damage and poor circulation associated with Diabetes. It is also suggested that Ginkgo Biloba can increase blood flow to the optic fibres of the eyes and therefore help to treat Diabetes-related eye disease.

Chromium Picolinate: This is a mineral supplement which has been clinically proven to improve the effectiveness of Insulin and is the most easily absorbed form of chromium. It also helps in the breakdown of fats and can therefore balance cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of Heart Disease.

Vizu-All comes in convenient drop form and is intended as a companion remedy for Insulate Plus to assist in the complete and natural treatment of Diabetes. Vizu-All is especially formulated to prevent Diabetes-related eye disease, Retinopathy, Macular Degeneration and Cataracts. It is also an excellent overall systemic tonic, relieving fatigue and increasing energy levels.

Individual response to Insulate Plus will differ based on severity of the condition, lifestyle and dietary factors, but improvement should be noted within 3 - 6 weeks.

It is advisable to have your doctor, clinic sister or pharmacist monitor your blood Sugar Levels to assess improvement.

Caution: Safety in Pregnancy has not yet been established. Use only under medical supervision if you are also using Insulin or other prescription Diabetic medication.
