I Can See Clearly Now.....

Herb Lectures
I love listening to Dr. Christopher and I learn something new every time I do. If you have ever called The School of Natural Healing and been put on hold they have a recording of Dr. Christopher to listen to while you wait. I enjoy that so much that I almost wish they wouldn’t answer. Funny thing is, I have the Herbal Lectures CD’s so can listen to them at any time. One of the things that Dr. Christopher would say to people when he had his practice as he handed them the herbs
is “this is a do it yourself plan”. In other words, here are the herbs, go home and do it and heal yourself. If people followed through they would get better, and if they didn’t follow his plan they wouldn’t get well.
Herbal Eyebright Ext. We just want to go to the doctor and have him/her make it all better, even with eye problems. If you have enough money you can go and get your eyes lasered so that you can see without glasses or contacts. People do that all the time and it works well for them. I would love to just sit in a chair for a few minutes and have my eyes lasered, but I am not a candidate for it.

I’ve known about Dr. Christopher’s program for eyes for quite a few years and have used it from time to time, but not followed through long enough to get the results that I need. Over the last few years my vision has gotten worse and I’ve bought reading glasses for about every room in the house. Reading has gotten so hard and just seeing in general has been very blurry. I had a little talk with myself and decided that I need to faithfully use the
Herbal Eyebright eyewash for at least six months. I have three different problems with my eyes that I know about but likely more. I have had dry eyes for years and with that I have gotten ulcers on the cornea, which causes scarring. The eye drops that I used to calm the ulcers down caused cataracts. I’m not sure what has caused the blurring, maybe the problems all combined.
Herbal Eyewash
I mixed up a little batch of the eyewash and after using it was amazed at the difference, it immediately cleared my vision. I find that I need to follow through about six times a day, because the blurriness starts to come back after a few hours. Please note that you do not use the extract straight from the bottle, it is used with water to make an eyewash.

To use the extract:
Boil distilled water and then fill
glass eye cup with the hot boiled distilled water. Start with adding one drop of Eyebright formula and work up to between three to five drops of extract. Let cool. There will be a burning sensation when using the eyewash at first. This is due to the stimulating effect of the cayenne pepper and will do nothing but good to the eyes. Tip head back and apply the eye cup to eye. Exercise eye while doing this as though you were swimming under water. Do this three to six times a day and take two capsules or a cup of the tea, morning and evening. Use separate solutions for each eye.

Because I have dry eyes I can’t handle the cayenne very well, so what I do is I get a bottle of
Dr. Christopher’s Herbal Eyebright and a bottle of Western Botanicals Herbal Eyewash Formula without Cayenne. I use one drop of Dr. Christopher's Herbal Eyebright formula with 3 - 4 drops of Western Botanicals Herbal Eyewash. I’m finding that about 95% of the time now I don’t need to put on the reading glasses, and that was after one day using the Herbal Eyebright Eyewash. I will update how I am doing from time to time and at the end of six months get my eyes checked to see how they really are doing. The committment will be worth it, because the difference so far is amazing.

eye ailments page on Herbal Legacy as well as the page on the Herbal Eyebright have some great case histories of people’s experience following Dr. Christopher’s program. It isn’t an immediate fix as none of the programs are. It takes time and it takes patience but most of all it takes opening the bottle and using it.

BFC Shampoo and BFC Conditioner

BFC Shampoo and Conditioner Two great natural products are Christopher’s BFC Shampoo and BFC Conditioner. Both are pure botanical formulas that smell so good and are nourishing to the hair. The shampoo does not lather up like the shampoos that contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate which may be one of the most dangerous ingredients found in personal care products today. BF&C Shampoo and conditioner are gentle and safe for everyday use. I use about a quarter sized portion in my hand, rub it between my hands and then into my hair. It is weird to nothave it lathering up, but I just work it through my hair and rinse. I like to put the conditioner on and leave it for the rest of my shower, rinsing it out right at the end. My hair looks great and feels great.

My hair is starting to get a few “sparklies” and my daughter keeps bugging me to dye it. I just can’t bring myself to do that because I worry about the chemicals. I don’t like the idea of going gray, so I continue to use the Rosemary essential oil in with the conditioner in hopes that it will help my hair to keep its natural color. I squeeze out some conditioner into my hand and then put 2 drops of
Rosemary Essential Oil into it, rub my hands together and then put it on my hair.

People are very happy to have the
Essential Skin Care available again. We also heard from many people that had no idea we had this wonderful skin cream available. It is always nice to
find a great product that you feel good about using and know that it isn’t going to cause any harm. Essential Skin Care became a best seller from the first week that we added because it is an all-natural, nourishing and fast-absorbing lotion that soothes dryness, and moisturizes deep into the skin's surface. All natural, herbs, oils, Aloe and glycerine. We know you will love it! Available in
4 oz & 8 oz.

Cleansing Kit
It is important to use natural products on our skin and hair because the skin easily absorbs anything we put on it. I don’t enjoy swimming anymore because I can smell the chlorine for days afterwards and it dries out my skin. How much damage do all of these chemicals create that we don’t even think about? Over time as people
continue to ingest, inhale and slather on things that are toxic at some point the body will have had enough and let you know. Cleansing is a great way to get rid of the toxins in the body. The
cleanse kits are back in stock and are an incredible value $109.90 for:
4 - Lower Bowel Formula
4 - Liver & Gall Bladder Formula
2 - Kidney Formula
2 - Blood Stream Formula

Essential Skin Care and Comfrey Ointment

Essential Skin Care

Essential Skin Care is back in stock and I’m sure there are a lot of people that will be very happy to hear that news. Essential Skin Care quickly became a favorite for many people including me. This skin cream is amazing to say the least, it is an all-natural,
nourishing blend of organic herbs and natural oils. People with skin problems have found Essential Skin Care to be very healing. I love to use it on my face and neck, it is so light and absorbs right in without feeling oily. Two sizes to choose from 4 oz, and 8 oz, available in Citrus Cream and Lavender Bliss scents.

Most of the skin care products available have ingredients that are harmful to the skin. Here’s a great link to learn more about toxic ingredients that are often used. Essential Skin Care ingredients are all natural nourishing herbs and oils.

Comfrey Ointment Molluscum contagiosum is a viral disease that is very prevalent among preschoolers. This little virus is easily passed from child to child and even to adults. Several people have mentioned that their babies got it after using a public restroom changing tables. Molluscum is a viral skin infection that causes raised, pearl-like papules or nodules on the skin that look much like a wart. They spread quickly going from one bump to many in a short period of time. The medical community has had a difficult time treating Molluscum contagiosum, but a few years back when our sales of Comfrey Ointment started skyrocketing I emailed the customers to find out what they were using it for. Come to find out it was for the Molluscum virus, and I was able to determine that Comfrey Ointment has a 75% success rate. Comfrey Ointment is all natural, just Comfrey in a base of Olive Oil and Beeswax.

I am forever using Complete Tissue and Bone Formula

CTF My husband and I helped my father to clean and organize his house last September to get it ready to sell. I had taken old tennis shoes to wear since we were cleaning, painting, moving things, etc. We worked hard for 9 days on our feet for about 14 hours every day. By the last day my feet were killing me and I was grateful to be going home. I started taking Complete Tissue and Bone Formula as well as using the ointment
on my feet morning and night.

My feet were starting to feel better when we went back the end of October to help with the move. Again we were on our feet for long hours and 8 more days of work where I wore the same old shoes to work in. By the time we left my feet and ankles were so miserable I could hardly stand.
For weeks by the early evening all I could do was put my feet up and watch TV. I continued to take Complete Tissue and Bone formula as well as using it on my feet morning and night. By the end of November my feet had made no progress toward healing so I had to get help, but from who? It finally dawned on me that a chiropractor I know does sports medicine and had worked on my feet about five years earlier. I quickly made an appointment and he noticed quite a few problems that had
occurred due to the fact that my arches had fallen. Bunions, hammer toes, etc. were starting to form. He worked on my feet once a week for four weeks and I got an orthotic arch support to aid in keeping my arch in the correct position.

It has been six months since the first trip and my feet are feeling great except I can’t handle walking in bare feet for very long. Most of the damage is repaired and I can’t imagine where I would be today had I not gone to the chiropractor. With injuries, the problem needs to be corrected so that the healing can properly take place. Complete Tissue and Bone Formula is an amazing herbal formula to aid in healing as well as help with pain.
This is one of the must have formulas that we use with our family, great for overworked muscles, sprains, broken bones, bruises and more. I healed a badly sprained ankle in six hours by getting elevating my foot, icing it and going through half a bottle of Complete Tissue and Bone Formula, four capsules every half hour. I will always have this formula in my herb cabinet.

We will be happy to assist you in placing your order. The phone lines are open, give us a call - 801-228-1901.
