Natural Hay Fever Remedies

Sinus PlusDr. Christopher’s Sinus Plus  is a natural herbal help for clearing up allergies, sinus and hay fever. It works as a decongestant and natural antihistamine to dry up the nasal passages. No drowsiness when using this formula because it is all natural. It contains Brigham Tea Herb, Marshmallow Root, Goldenseal Root, Horseradish Root, Burdock Root, Parsley Root, Lobelia Herb and Cayenne Pepper. Available in capsules and extract.

ImmucalmDr. Christopher’s  Immucalm was designed to calm yet strengthen the body's immune response. Often we believe that we are allergic to certain foods, plants or animals, but in reality our immune system may be just overreacting. This simple combination of Marshmallow root and Astragalus has made life easier for those who suffer from allergies, hay fever, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis or any hyperactive immune response. Immuncalm is available in capsules (caps are out of stock, hopefully in soon) and bulk, as well as extract for children called Kid-e-Soothe.

Seasonal SinusWestern Botanicals Seasonal Sinus Formula works to relieve sinus congestion and draining associated with allergies as well as the itchiness. It contains Horseradish root, Mormon tea, Immature Bitter Orange, Goldenseal root, Lobelia herb & seed, Nettle leaf, Peppermint leaf, Echinacea angustifolia root, Echinacea purpurea root, Eyebright herb, Yarrow flower, Kola nut, Habanero Cayenne pepper, Peppermint essential oil. Available in capsules, extract and syrup.

ImmusootheWestern Botanicals ImmuSoothe treats allergy and immune disorders. The herbs present in this formula have powerful calming effect on the immune system. An allergic response is cause by the immune system over-reacting. ImmuSoothe contains Astragalus root, Marshmallow root, Nettle leaf, Immature Bitter Orange and Brigham tea. It is available in capsules and syrup.

A great essential oil blend you can make yourself for hay fever is equal parts lemon, lavender and peppermint diluted with a carrier oil for the skin, or full strength in a diffuser. I really like the smell of the three oils together and they work well to help clear the breathing, calm the inflammatory response and boost the immune system. I am sold on the effectiveness of using essential oils to fight off allergy symptoms. Basil, Eucalyptus and Tea Tree oil are also oils that work well for allergies.

Here is what Dr. Christopher says is the cause of hay fever: “Many folks suffer great discomfort during the pollination season of plants. They attribute their symptoms to the pollen, saying that they are "allergic" to it. What is happening is that the pollen is bringing out of their bodies years of accumulated toxins. These come out in the form of mucus running from the nose, eyes, and lungs. [NL 3-9]”

My husband and I have been working on our diet for many years. Every year the allergies have been less bothersome for us. This year we have had only slight allergy symptoms! On occasion I have taken Sinus Plus at night when I feel a bit stuffy so I can sleep well. We have had no itchiness whatsoever when in the past itchiness in the eyes, nose and throat have been a big issue and caused us lots of misery! This link gives some very basic guidelines to eating the Dr. Christopher way. Do a search for whole foods plant based diet and you will come up with many blogs and facebook groups to support the whole foods plant based way of eating with recipes. It is worth it to change your diet, because allergies will not be a problem, as well as good health returns and you are better able to fight off and flues and virus’ that may be around.

     We have Anti-Plague kits in stock and they are ready to ship. Here is the link on how to make Anti-Plague. This project takes a about 5 days to get things made and put together, but will be worth it! Anti-Plague stores well, I keep it in the back of my refrigerator and the batch I have is from 2011 and its still good! We will keep a few kits on hand so that we can get them shipped out quickly.

How are you doing emotionally?


Kathryn      I have been pretty open over the years that I struggle at times with anxiety and had a few bad weeks/months with depression.  I have also dealt with SAD/seasonal affective disorder for most of my life. I have done fairly well with the SAD the last two years, until about the end of February when I’m just so done with the cold weather and shortened days. This year was no different, and now with the Covid 19 restrictions it just added to the stress for me. 

     I went in for my “free” physical and got my blood work done, and at that time my blood pressure was quite high. I have had periods of high blood pressure, and considering this appointment was early in March in the midst of my SAD, and the increasing reports of the Coronavirus, and other personal stresses, I would say I was pretty stressed out.

     When the blood tests came back the problem areas were mostly stress related. On the day of my first appointment with the doctor I realized that I hadn’t been taking my Relax-Eze and Mindtrac because back in December I was feeling so good. I now understand that I was feeling good because I was taking those two great formulas.
Dr Christopher's Blood Circ
                                  formula     I realized that with the stress related high blood pressure, I needed a little help with that! I added Dr. Christopher’s Blood Circ formula that helps to equalize blood pressure. It took about two weeks for things to get to a better place, and when I gave blood last week my blood pressure was back to normal 120/80. Blood Circ is  available in capsules, extract, and bulk as BPE.
 Dr Christopher's Relax-Eze
      Relax-Eze has been amazing for me over the years. It soothes the nervous system, helps calm nerves & supports restful sleep. Taking it during the day doesn’t make you sleepy, it just calms the nerves. Capsules are currently out of stock, but we do have the liquid and bulk available. Capsules should be back in stock in a few weeks.

Dr Christopher's Mindtrac     Mindtrac has helped me with the anxiety and depression. Mindtrac supports brain function, delivers nutrients to the brain, aids in calming the nervous system and supports the body’s natural response to stress. Both Mindtrac and Relax-Eze together make an amazing difference in my life. Try one or the other, and then try both together to see what works for you.  Mindtrac is available in capsules, bulk and liquid for children as Kid-e-trac.

     I realize that due to my genetics these issues with anxiety and depression are a part of me. I have great natural formulas to help me and they aren't addictive and don't have side effects. From here on out I will stay on them, especially when I feel good!

    Please email me or call me with questions. I love to help people with these amazing herbs!

Herbal remedies for Flu & Coronavirus










Western Botanicals Immu-Defense     Western Botanicals has some great formulas including an anti-plague formula called Immu-Defense - available in syrup and capsules. This is the virus killing formula that will help with the flu and Coronavirus that is going around. Capsules are great for people that can’t handle the taste of the syrup, take it as a preventative, and in higher doses when sick.Dr Christopher's Super Garlic Immune
                              Formula syrup

    Suggested supply as a minimum is one 16 oz. bottle of syrup per person in the household. Three bottles of capsules per person if you can't handle the syrup. We have both, since my husband can't handle the syrup. Dr Christopher's Super Garlic Immune Formula is the Anti Plague formula. We have it in stock, I like to plan on at least one 16 oz. bottle per person.

    For those of you that like to make your own herbals and stretch your money like I do, I’ll share with you how to make Dr. Christopher’s famous Anti-Plague. Be sure to save your brown bottles, to remove the labels use a hair dryer to heat the label and peel it off. Making Anti-Plague is a big project, but once you do it you realize if you can make Anti-Plague you can make anything!

Dr. Christopher’s Liquid Anti-Plague Formula

Using 4 oz. as a part will make about a gallon. If you are buying one Anti-Plague kit it uses 4 oz. as a part.  Plan on the below, buy the bigger bags if you are going to make a bigger batch:

8 parts apple cider vinegar - 32 oz.
5 parts glycerine - 20 oz.
5 parts honey - 20 oz.
2 parts garlic juice, fresh - 8 oz
2 parts comfrey root concentrate, use fresh root for best results* - 8 oz.
1 part wormwood concentrate - 4 oz.
1 part lobelia leaf concentrate - 4 oz.
1 part marshmallow root concentrate - 4 oz.
1 part white oak bark concentrate - 4 oz.
1 part black walnut hull concentrate - 4 oz.
1 part mullein leaf concentrate - 4 oz.
1 part scullcap leaf concentrate - 4 oz.
1 part uva ursi, hydrangea or gravel root concentrate - 4 oz.

*if using fresh comfrey use a bit more to come up with the same concentration as the dried. So in the above I would use about 12 oz or so to make up for the water content in the fresh comfrey.

     I start on Monday making the garlic/apple cider vinegar and finish up on Saturday with combining everything.

    First make the garlic juice. I can get 8 oz. of garlic juice out of a pound of garlic when using my Green Star Juicer.  Other juicers will likely need more garlic to get that much juice. Add garlic juice and pulp to the vinegar and shake 2-3 times a day for 4 - 5 days to get the rest of the goodness out of the pulp. Note that it often turns green looking, I don’t know why but most people tell me this happens.  With all the Anti-Plague I have used over the years it hasn’t killed me!

     If you don’t have a juicer use this alternative method: for the example of parts above amount use 2 1/2 lbs. of garlic - peel, blend in blender with vinegar (do not liquify).  Let set for 4 - 5 days, shaking several times per day.

To make the concentrates:

     Each concentrate should be made individually. Use only stainless steel or glass pots.  Start by soaking the herb in enough distilled water to cover it for four hours and over- night if it is a root. After soaking add more distilled water so that the total added equals 16 oz. water per 4 oz. of herb. Mullein is quite fluffy and you will end up adding a lot more water to it, and after the soaking you may need to add more water to some of the herbs as well, since it will have soaked it up. This is ok, just keep following the directions.

scraping comfrey    The recipe calls for fresh comfrey, when I have used the dried bulk comfrey, they did not scrape off the outer root before drying. This then becomes a weird mess once you combine the comfrey with the other herb concentrates. Just not worth it! Find someone with some root they will share with you. Scraping the root is part of the fun!  Still soak it overnight since it is a root.

simmer the herbssimmer the herbs    Simmer the herbs on very low heat in a covered pan or double boiler for thirty minutes.  Let cool for 30 minutes and then strain the liquid into a clean pan, squeezing all of the liquid out of the herb. I like to use a potato ricer for this.  Next put the liquid into a double boiler or on very low heat uncovered and simmer down to one fourth of the original volume (4 oz. if that is the portion you started with).  Go ahead and add a bit of distilled water if you reduced it too far. 

     Only after all the ingredients have been prepared should the liquids be mixed. It takes me 2 days to get the concentrates made. I do some on Thursday and the others on Friday, then I refrigerate the concentrates until they are ready to mix. Be sure they are all the same temperature before combining. Combine the herbs first, if you do get some clumping going on after adding the comfrey, then blend it in a vitamix and strain well. Add the garlic and vinegar mixture, glycerine and honey last.

     On Saturday I squeeze out the garlic from the vinegar, make sure there is a total of 40 oz., if not then add more apple cider vinegar to make bring it up to 40 oz. combined ACV/garlic juice. Add the honey, glycerine and liquid herbs to the ACV/garlic juice and mix well. Bottle and label and keep in a cool place. I keep mine in the back of the fridge so they are out of the way but at a controlled temperature. Dr. Christopher talks about it being good for ten years or more and I have used ten year old Anti-Plague and it works! Now you know how to make it!

Dr. Christopher's Super Garlic Immune
                              Formula    If this sounds like too much work for you we have Dr. Christopher’s Super Garlic Immune Formula available in 2 oz, 4 oz and 16 oz, or Western Botanicals Immu-Defense available in 4 oz, 8 oz and 16 oz as well as capsules. I have found that when I get sick I need a full 16 oz. bottle to get well. I like to keep at least one 16 oz. bottle per person on hand.

     Our last newsletter talked about Elderberry being great for  killing virus bugs as well, I have been using it daily and haven't been sick all winter. If we run out of the anti-plague formulas, get some Elderberry Extract!

What can we help you with?

     I have had several people call lately with the same problem, needing a large amount of a single herb extract, but feeling it was too expensive to buy so many bottles of 4 oz. extract.

Western Botanicals Garlic Extract     The first customer needed a large amount of Western Botanicals Garlic extract. I always suggest making it yourself when you need that much. She bought two 4 ounce bottles to get her through until her batch would be ready. I told her I would use fresh garlic with 100 proof Vodka. She called a few weeks later to say that she was not able to make it due to health reasons, and asked how can she get half a gallon from us for a reasonable price. She was hoping for two 32 ounce bottles, and I had to explain that they are too heavy for shipping.  I was able to get very good pricing for her on 16 oz. bottles and she was thrilled!

     The second customer needed a large amount of a single extract as well. When I asked if he was interested in making it himself, he asked how. I emailed him the instructions and he emailed back saying, “I wish someone had told me this ten years ago!” I’m happy to help people save money when I can. I know how hard it is when you need to get the money to stretch!

     I suggest for people to make their own extract when they are going through a lot of it. Most often they don’t want to, which works too, because we need the orders! We are here for you if you have a special need, just let us know and we’ll try to help you with it!

photo of Elderberry extract ingredients     This week I am making a batch of Elderberry extract. Elderberry extract is very popular this time of year. In a google search it states: “Elderberry extract binds to the tiny spikes on a virus protein that are used to pierce and invade healthy cells and destroys them so that the virus is ineffective.” That’s what we have going on right now, lots of virus’ making people sick. This simple single herb extract is one I have been taking daily and so far I have avoided getting what has been going around.

Dr. Christopher's Elderberry Extract     The best price we have is for Dr. Christopher’s Elderberry Extract, 2 oz. bottle for $14.44. The directions are to take 3 droppersful three times a day or as directed by your health care professional. Because I’m not sick I’m just taking a dropperful once a day. If I had been exposed to sick people or could feel something coming on I would up it to the recommended dosage listed on the bottle. Happily so far so good, I'm staying healthy!

Elderberry Exract in the making     Pictured above right is 16 oz. Western Botanicals bulk Elderberry and a bottle of Vodka, I use 80 proof for dried herbs and the 100 proof if the herbs are fresh. I poured the dried  Elderberries and the bottle of vodka into the one gallon jar, added the rest of a bottle of Vodka that I had bringing it up to about 64 oz of Vodka. The liquid immediately turned purple. I’m shaking it up about three times a day and it will be ready in about two weeks. Extracts last many years when stored in a cool dark place, so we’ll have this to use for quite a few years! Below are the complete instructions for making an extract.

    How to make an Alcohol Extract
    Herbal Preparations and Natural Therapies, Debra Nuzzi St. Claire recommends using 100 proof vodka, which is readily available and is equal to the required solution of 50 percent alcohol and 50 percent water. Use four ounces of herb to one pint of alcohol. The herb should be finely cut or powdered, placed in a clean glass jar. 

    After pouring the alcohol over the herb, the jar is tightly covered. Shake the jar for a minute or two each day. At the end of two weeks, strain the tincture through cheesecloth, a jelly bag, or a coffee filter. If you happen to have a wine press, you could use that. "It is best to put up one's tincture on the new moon and strain it off on the full moon so that the drawing power of the waxing moon will help extract the herbal properties". Store herbal tinctures in dark glass bottles away from heat and light.

Thank you for your orders!

     As we start the new year we just want to say thank you. Our customers are the reason why Herbs First is here! Last year was a bit rough and to tell you the truth we seriously considered closing down.  I’ve spent more than 22 years dedicated to helping our customers. Many of you have been with us for much of that time! A smile always comes to my face when I see an order from a long-time customer! Thank you so much!

Kathryn & Don Mechling    I love talking to customers. I love sending you links that help you with your health issues. I love talking to you on the phone and helping you with your needs. I have been able to help many people figure out the best way to get the products that will help them. I love walking you through making Anti Plague, extracts and ointments, which is pretty scary for a first timer! A great day for me is when I’m talking to customers and taking orders. I feel needed and fulfilled and that makes me happy!


     We now have free shipping on orders over $75.00, something I thought we would never be able to do! Its working, thank you so much for your orders!

Hollie Gomez     We have the best support team ever. Hollie  has been with us for 16 years, works from home to process the orders and sends them over to the warehouse. She emails the tracking and attends to order issues which seldom ever happens! She is a single mom of two special needs children. Ben is 17, has Asperger’s Syndrome and is a junior at Spectrum Academy High School, which is a school for children with autism. Hollie’s daughter Elaina just turned 12 years old, and was born with a congenital heart defect and a chromosomal deletion (22q11.2 - DiGeorge Syndrome) that has required multiple surgeries and procedures. Elaina spends a lot of time in the hospital due to her weak immune system and multiple surgeries. Working for Herbs First from home has allowed Hollie to continue to support her family without worrying about missing work.

Jeff Thompson     Jeff is our one and only warehouse guy that keeps the warehouse running. He packs and ships your orders to the greatest of perfection! We have had many people email us saying how wonderfully packed their orders are! He rarely makes a mistake and we hardly ever have any breakage, all due to his skills!

We appreciate all he does for us and our customers!

     My husband Don sends out the newsletters as well as helping me with technical issues on the web-site. He has been a great support for me running this business for over 22 years! Did you know that Herbs First was the first website to offer the Dr. Christopher products on the internet? It’s true, we were here even before Dr. Christopher’s were! It all started because I was using their products and noticed how amazing they are and wanted to be able to help people with them! It has been a great business for us and we hope that you will continue to keep us here! We need you and we hope that you need us! Please share our website with others and help us stay here for you, and for the people that work for us!

Thank you so much!

Olive leaf, wow, amazing!



Western Botanicals Olive Leaf extract  
I had a customer asking about Olive Leaf extract today which got me looking into it a bit more. I had been on it a few years ago recommended by my health care practitioner. Olive Leaf is broadly anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic and anti-bacterial, and it covered the issue I was working on. During that time I was on it I had been gradually losing weight, and then when I went off it I gradually gained weight. I’ve had some stressful things going on in the past few years and with working on my own health issues never even considered that the OIive Leaf was helping me with my weight.  I felt that as the health issues got better that my weight would get where I wanted it to be, so I didn’t worry about it.
When I looked at it today, some things jumped out at me about Olive Leaf that I had no idea about. Here is what I found on healthline:
Olive leaf extract is a natural source of wellness with therapeutic properties that are:

  • gastroprotective (protects digestive system)
  • neuroprotective (protects central nervous system)
  • antimicrobial (inhibits microorganism growth)
  • anticancer (reduces risk of cancer)
  • anti-inflammatory (reduces risk of inflammation)
  • antinociceptive (reduces pain stimuli)
  • antioxidant (prevents oxidation or cell damage)

These properties mean that olive leaf extract may help with weight loss, heart health, and herpes breakouts.

Olive Leaf extract:

  • reduces cardiovascular risk, like atherosclerosis
  • lowers blood pressure
  • helps treats type 2 diabetes
  • supports weight loss
  • eliminates free radicals
  • boosts immunity
  • fights herpes
  • reduces inflammation

Western Botanicals Olive Leaf bulk     Amazing right? It sounds like Olive Leaf would be good for a lot of people. I originally bought the 4 oz. bottle of Western Botanicals Olive Leaf extract, and also got a pound of the cut herb and made up a bunch on my own extract to refill my bottle. It is easy to make an extract and save money over buying it prepared. For people that need their money to go further this is a great option. Olive leaf is available in capsules, extract 2 oz. and 4 oz, and bulk cut and powder, 4 oz, 8 oz. and 16 oz. sizes (scroll down on link and select size and type wanted).
How to make an Alcohol Extract
    Herbal Preparations and Natural Therapies, Debra Nuzzi St. Claire recommends using 100 proof vodka, which is readily available and is equal to the required solution of 50 percent alcohol and 50 percent water.

Where do you get your Calcium?






Calc Tea    I’ve been using Dr. Christopher's bulk Calc Tea powder for many years, I add a teaspoon to my smoothie in the morning. I’ve fallen a number of times in the past three years and not broken any bones. One of my falls I hit my collar bone and was amazed that it didn’t break. I had a feeling that my bones must be pretty good! I recently had my bone density checked and found that my bone density is way above that of people my age, and I attribute that to the good herbal calcium that I eat every day.

    Dr. Christopher always taught people to use herbs to get the right kind of calcium for building strong bones and teeth. This is vitally important for the developing child as well as all of the rest of us, for all of our lives.

    “Dr. Christopher’s Herbal Calcium Formula/Calc Tea in bulk is a wonderful natural calcium capsule, extract or tea or powder made up of horsetail grass, oat straw, comfrey root and lobelia. As explained in the book "Biological Transmutations," the silica in horsetail grass converts to calcium, and the other herbs work in close conjunction with this master calcium herb. We need calcium for nerve sheath, vein and artery walls, bone, teeth, etc. This combination is all pure herbs. It is also used for cramps, "Charlie horses," and for all calcium needs in the body.

     Children with crowded, crooked teeth who later must have the wisdom teeth pulled because of a too narrow jaw are lacking calcium in the body. The pregnant woman should increase her natural calcium intake now for two people, so as to build for the child a good wide jaw and tooth material. Sugars, pastries, soft and alcoholic beverages, breads, candies, etc., leach the calcium out of the body, causing varicose veins, cramps, Charlie horses, loss of teeth, nervous upsets, etc. [Herbal Home Healthcare book page.185]”

Dr Christopher's Herbal Calcium Capsules    Dr. Christopher’s Herbal Calcium is available in capsules, extract and a child version called Kid-e-Calc. It is also available in bulk under the name of Calc Tea in powder and cut. We also have a page where we sell a “kit” to make 3.5 lbs of powder or cut/tea for larger families. Any way you use it, this is going to be the best calcium you can put into your body! Here’s a link to the Herbal Legacy page to learn more about Herbal Calcium.

Two more great formulas for Cold & Flu Season

We talked about Dr. Christopher’s Super Garlic Immune Formula and Western Botanicals ImmuDefense in our blog a few weeks ago. These are great formulas and work really well. I like to have a variety of herbal formulas on hand so that my body doesn’t become immune and stop responding so I have a few other favorites I rely on.

Western Botanicals Echinacea and GoldensealWestern Botanicals Echinacea and Goldenseal will boost the immune system and assist in fighting infections. This is a really great and simple formulation that is very effective in getting things turned around when you take it at the first sign of illness. Don’t wait and let things set in, take it right at the beginning and you can avoid getting sick. Available in capsules, 2 oz and 4 oz extract and 2 oz and 4 oz syrup!

Dr Christophers X-INFXDr. Christopher’s X-INFX formula. I had to laugh a few weeks ago, this formula keeps changing names and I had to call and ask how do I pronounce this name?  I sure wish the FDA would quit insisting on name changes with these great products, because honestly, I am having a hard time keeping track of what some formulas are currently named!  This in the famous Infection Formula, formerly INF and Lymphatic Formula. Whatever the name, this is a great formula! It helps to clear the lymph system so that the body can fight infections. It is available in capsules and bulk powder and is a must have for your herb cabinet!

Have you tried Deep Heat Ointment for muscles issues?

   Fall marks the time when homeowners are out cleaning up the yard to get it ready for winter. We stained our fence a few weeks ago and I can honestly say that staining the fence was hard work. My husband and I worked on it together using paint brushes and rollers. After rolling a few of the 6’ slats I realized that was hard on my back. I suggested that he do the upper fence and I would do the lower sitting on a stool. That worked much better than doing the whole 6’ height. We are on the tail end of the leaf cleanup now and I think we are about done with the yard for the year.

   I’ve been watching a neighbor work on his house the last few weeks, he had a big project going on and it appeared that his back was hurting. He confirmed that he was struggling with all the work.

Western Botanicals Deep Heat Ointment   My favorite ointment for back problems and any other sore muscles is Western Botanicals Deep Heat Ointment. It is a combination of their Deep Heat Oil and CTR Ointment and it’s a very healing blend. The smell is amazing too. I love how it penetrates into the skin and you feel that deep heating right into the muscles to help relieve the pain and soreness. Available in 5 oz and 16 oz sizes.
