Are guns the problem or is it psychiatric drugs?

David & Fawn
    We have a link at Herbs First to David & Fawn Christopher’s A Healthier You radio show that is broadcast live on the internet on Saturday mornings from 9:00 to 10:00 am Mountain Time - you can listen to the recording of the most recent show at the above link.  It is important for people to listen to this show, because David is talking about the fact that psychiatric drugs mess up people’s thought processes.  Many people have committed suicide that never had suicidal thoughts before medication.  Many of the people that are mentally unstable and on these medications are the ones that have gone into schools, movie theaters and malls,  killing people.  Mental issues can be corrected through diet and herbs without the violent side effects that medication has. David has done extensive research on the fact that the medication is the problem in these violent situations.  This is likely the only place you are going to hear this information.  Please note that only the newest show is available for free listening, the above post was the newest show when this blog was posted.  You may have to subscribe to access this show.
    The second half of the show David answers people’s questions.  This is often my favorite part of the show because you never know what he will end up talking about.  One caller was asking for help with arthritis and I learned a new way to treat it with David’s answer. He talked about using Immucalm, which I know is helpful, but in a larger dose than I would have thought to use.  This information is for any autoimmune disease from Chronic Fatigue, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Juvenile Diabetes, Multiple Sclerosis and so on.  David suggests taking five capsules five times a day of Immucalm for two weeks and then go down to 3 capsules three times a day and see how you do on that dose.  If symptoms are worse going down then stay with the 5 caps five times for a while.  He says that it may take a year or so, but staying on the higher dose will help the over-active immune system to calm down and overcome the disease. Of course people need to be working on the diet as well, because diet is the main component to every healing program. If it is too costly to buy the capsules, get the bulk - purchase equal parts of Astragalus and Marshmallow and mix them together.  1/4 level teaspoon will be about equal to each capsule, so 1/2 tablespoon would be about 5 capsules.  These two herbs are very mild tasting, so I would just mix it in water and drink it down five times a day. A stick blender is the handiest gadget to have around for mixing herbs into juice or water and well worth the investment. 

    A Healthier You radio show is another great way to educate yourself.  Listen free to the latest show, or sign up to be able to access many years of shows for $60.00 a year.

Use herbs from infancy to elderly

    Often people will ask if we have herbs that are suitable for infants and children.  Natural medicine is suitable for the youngest infant to the elderly. We have liquid formulas that would be easy to administer to an infant, child or an elderly person that has a hard time getting the capsules down.  The liquids get right to work as soon as they are in the system, so they really are the better way to take herbs.

kidemune    We took care of a an infant for a few days and I noticed that he was showing signs of getting sick. I gave him 5 drops of the Kid-e-Mune a couple of times to boost his immune system and he got well. My family was able to enjoy the few days that we had with him and I was relieved that we could give a healthy baby to his parents. 

kidecol    Kid-e-Col is the famous Catnip and Fennel combination that is used for colic and gas.  It works amazingly fast and is a blessing for a little one suffering with digestive issues. Kid-e-Reg helps to strengthen and cleanse the lower bowel. It is sad to see a little baby having a hard time having a bowel movement. This formula is gentle and gets things moving in the right direction. Kid-e-Soothe is for allergic reactions and would be used instead of Benadryl. Kid-e-Well is used in times of cold and flu to help strengthen and assist the immune system.  Dosage for these formulas  is 5 drops to 20 drops. The taste of these formulas is mild and essential oils have been used to flavor the them.  I would give my baby 5 drops and go up from there as they get bigger. To order these formulas click on this link.

    Many of Christopher’s formulas are available in glycerine extract. Liquid herbs get into the system much faster and for cleansing herbs such as the Liver and Gall Bladder formula, it is best to taste the bitter herb which prepares the liver for the cleansing.  Herbs often are not very tasty, so be prepared for some interesting flavors.
Immune Boost Syrup    Western Botanicals has some really great formulas in alcohol extract and syrup.  I love the syrups, they often contain ingredients to make them more palatable.  I love the Immune Boost Syrup, it has Maple Syrup in it which hides the taste of the herbs.  Kids willingly take this formula.  The Herbal Throat Spray is a great one for sore throats.  It is the same formula as the Herbal Cough Syrup in a little spray bottle. The Herbal Mouthwash is a concentrate that you dilute in water.  It is tasty and does a good job killing bacteria, even helpful for sore throats.  Pain Relief Syrup is one of the only natural pain formulas I have seen in liquid form.  Look through the pages, I’m sure you will be amazed at the variety that is available.

    When I was new to herbs I tried them on myself first.  As I noticed how they worked it wasn’t long before I had the confidence to use them on my family and pets. I no longer worry when we are exposed to sick people, we come home and take herbs to boost our immune system and we rarely get sick.  I have my own herbal pharmacy at home and we can handle anything that comes our way!

Get Healthy by Rebounding!

The older I get, the harder I work on staying healthy.  I have found exercise to be a huge part of my ability to maintain my health.  I have joined gyms in the past, but with the high cost of membership, plus the time to get there and the cost of gas I decided to work out at home.  I only have 2 pieces of equipment, one is a Treadclimber and even though we bought it used it was still a rather expensive purchase.  The other is my ReboundAir rebounder which cost one fourth of what I spent on the used Treadclimber!

ReboundAir    Rebounding stimulates lymph flow, it affects every cell in the body squeezing toxins out of the cells.  Rebounding boosts the immune system and metabolism.  Rebounding strengthens all of the muscles, you can feel it in your entire body. Rebounding causes you to breath deeper, which is amazing therapy for the lungs.  Learn about more of the health benefits here.

    I have struggled with back problems off and on for the past five years. Three months ago I was in a lot of pain from my lower back which ran down one of my legs.  I have gone to numerous chiropractors and therapists trying to fix this problem.  A few months ago I found a new chiropractor who has finally been able to get to the crux of the problem.  Now my back health is going in the right direction giving me the motivation to really get moving!

    I had really gotten slack this year on my exercise due to the pain and felt like I needed to bump up my intensity. The past three months I have dedicated most of my exercise time to the rebounder. I can feel the muscles in my back strengthening and helping to keep the adjustments in place.  Rebounding is low impact, gentler on all of the joints, and at the same time it is a body strengthener.  I am able to do more than 40 minutes on the rebounder and it is amazing how much better I feel, not only physically but emotionally as well.

    We have amazing pricing on the ReboundAir rebounders.  They come with a lifetime warranty.  I was in their office recently and noticed that the cover changed from the vinyl to neoprene.  I loved the look and feel of the neoprene, and also the fact that it is more flush with the rebounder. Sometimes I would catch the edge of the cover and about trip.  I could see that this would be less of a problem with the new cover.  I mentioned it to them and they gave me a new neoprene cover, no questions asked!! It is nice to know that they care about their customers.  The quality of this rebounder is amazing, I will never have to worry about replacing it.

    The Standard rebounder and the Half-Fold will hold up to 300 lbs in body weight.  The Ultimate ReboundAir folds into one quarter its size and holds up to 400 lbs in body weight.  There is a great stabilizing bar for people that need something to hold onto.  Rebounders are great for all ages from kids to Great-Grandparents.  My dog even loves to jump on it with me!  Our pricing is below what ReboundAir sells them for.

PS - I have a Treadclimber that hasn't been used for quite some time! 
Have a healthy month!
