Western Botanicals Deep Heat Ointment, Sweet Relief in a Bottle

    I’ve had a crazy few years trying to get help with a lower back issue.  Last August I went to a several Chiropractors, trying to find one that could help with the problem.  In getting the adjustments my whole back was thrown out and I was in pain for several months due to the correction that was taking place.  I took hot baths to relax the muscles but needed something that would help me the rest of the day because I couldn’t be in the tub all the time.  I got Western Botanicals Deep Heat Ointment and put it on my back, as well as on my shoulders and neck.  It was so nice and relaxing and helped me sleep so well at night!  Deep Heat Ointment quickly became my friend and it will be one I always have in my home. 

    Deep Heat Ointment is a combination of Western Botanicals Deep Heat Oil and their Complete Tissue Repair Ointment all in one bottle.  We sell the generously sized 5 oz. jar for only $13.00.   The herbs, oils and essential oils in this ointment works deep in the tissues to penetrate, warm and soothe sprains, strains, arthritis, bursitis, tendentious, muscle aches, joint pain and more.  I’m sure it will become a mainstay in your home too!
    I also used Christopher’s Complete Tissue and Bone Formula capsules, three capsules three times a day to aid in healing.  I’m happy to say that I am doing great now.  The problem we finally found via x-ray was that I had a cocked vertebrae.  There was no way this would have healed on its own and the five years that I searched for help and had different therapies did very little for me.  I’m happy I finally found a chiropractor that x-rayed it and found and fixed the problem.  It sure feels great to feel good again!

Eat Coconut Oil, it is the Heatlhy Oil!

coconut oilThe gallon sized coconut oil finally came back in stock in mid December. Coconut Oil got a bad rap for a while since it is a saturated fat, but it is actually one of the healthiest oils you can eat. Your body doesn’t store this oil, it uses it for energy, so it is a great one for people wanting to lose weight.  It has greatly helped my dry eye problems that often turned into eye infections.  I used to have a lot of brain fog and that has cleared up as well.  I eat a tablespoon twice a day on top of using it in my cooking, baking and on my veggies.

Research and clinical observation have shown that medium-chain fatty acids, like those found in coconut oil, may help prevent and treat a wide range of diseases.  Use at least three tablespoons a day in place of other oils.  The following list is a shortened list of some of the health benefits of coconut oil:

Supports the development of strong bones and teeth.

Protects against osteoporosis.

Promotes loss of excess weight

Kills viruses that cause mono, influenza, hepatitis C, measles, herpes, AIDS, and other illnesses.

Reduces severity of problems associated with malabsorption syndrome and cystic fibrosis.

Relieves symptoms associated with Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and stomach ulcers.

Reduces chronic inflammation.

Relieves symptoms associated with chronic fatigue syndrome.

Kills bacteria that cause pneumonia, earache, throat infections, dental cavities, food poisoning, urinary tract infections, meningitis, gonorrhea, and dozen of other diseases.

Kills fungi and yeast that cause candida, jock itch, ringworm, athlete’s foot, thrush, diaper rash, and other infections.

Relieves dryness and flaking.Prevent damaging effects of UV radiation from the sun such as wrinkles, sagging skin and age spots.

Does not form harmful by-products when heated to normal cooking temperature like other vegetable oils do.

Has no harmful or discomforting side effects.

Is completely non-toxic to humans.
