Dr. Christopher formulas for children

    If you aren’t already using natural medicine to take care of your family what are you waiting for??  My kids were fairly young when we totally switched over and I certainly wish that we had known even sooner what we know now about health.  It is very empowering to be able to handle situations at the very moment realized, than to wait until things get worse.

    Dr. Christopher has a great Kid-e-Line of extracts for children which are appropriate to give from newborn on up. 

Dr Christophers Kid-e-calc    Dr. Christopher’s Kid-e-Calc is a wonderful natural calcium formula designed to meet children’s specific growing needs. As explained in the book, "Biological Transmutations", the silica in horsetail grass can be converted into calcium in the human body, and the other herbs work in close conjunction with this master calcium herb. We need calcium to build and maintain nerve sheath, vein and artery walls, bone, teeth, etc. This combination is helpful for cramps, ("Charlie horses"), successful pregnancies, and building as well as maintaining healthy bones, teeth, hair, skin and nails for children and adults.

Dr Christophers Kid-e-Col    Dr. Christopher’s Kid-e-Col is a mother's favorite formula for her new born baby. This formula is time tested and a blessing for infants. A great combination of Catnip and Fennel for colic, teething pain, flatulence, spasms, etc. This is one I give as a gift when I hear a baby has colic.  Parents are always amazed at how quickly it works to soothe little tummies.

Dr Christophers Kid-e-Dry    Dr. Christopher’s Kid-e-Dry is specifically for controlling or overcoming bed-wetting and to strengthen the entire urethral canal, kidneys, bladder, etc.
Dr Christophers Kid-e-Mins
    Dr. Christopher’s Kid-e-Mins are natural vitamins for children, Kid-e-Mins is the ultimate whole-food formula, perfectly balanced with vitamins and minerals the way mother nature intended. Vitamins that come straight from nature are the most precious gift you can give a child. 100% natural to nourish growing bodies. Vitamins a parent can feel good about giving their children.

Dr Christophers Kid-e-Mune    Dr. Christopher’s Kid-e-Mune was designed to enhance the body’s ability to prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses. Many herbalists use Echinacea for its ability to build resistance to infections of the respiratory and digestive tracts and strengthen the body’s resistance against many common ailments such as bronchitis, the common cold, sore throats, canker sores, cold sores, etc. Give at the first sign of illness to stop problems quickly before they develop.
Dr Christophers Kid-e-Reg

    Dr. Christopher’s Kid-e-Reg is a synergistic herbal blend was designed to strengthen and gently cleanse the lower bowel. It is powerful enough for effectiveness and gentle enough for safety. It tastes great and is made with only the finest ingredients.

Dr Christophers Kid-e-Soothe    Dr. Christopher’s Kid-e-Soothe was designed to calm yet strengthen the body’s immune responses. Oftentimes, 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.

Dr Christophers Kid-e-Trac    Dr. Christopher’s Kid-e-Trac has become one of the most popular formulas for mental sharpness and clarity, emotional balance and overall health of the brain and nervous system. This formula has been used traditionally for helping the brain function properly via assisting the body with delivering the nutrients to the brain and calming nervous system. Works wonderfully for depression and anxiety symptoms.

Dr Christophers Kid-e-Well    Dr. Christopher’s Kid-e-Well is a synergistic herbal blend was designed to help strengthen and assist the immune system of children. This formula is powerful enough to be effective, yet gentle enough to be safe. It tastes great and has been used traditionally during times of cold and flu.

What is your favorite Dr. Christopher formula?

Dr Christophers Complete Tissue and Bone formula
    I talk about this formula way too much, so hopefully you are understanding the importance of having Dr Christopher’s Complete Tissue and Bone Formula on hand.  I was attempting to open up a coconut , but it was a really hard nut and I wasn’t getting anywhere with it.  My husband decided to help me and as he took the coconut it slipped and dropped on my big toe! It hit just right, or wrong for me, and boy did it hurt. The pain was rather numbing and after a minute or two and looking at my toe I decided to get the Complete Tissue and Bone formula into me.  I really thought I would wake up to a bruised toe, and I certainly would have if I hadn’t taken it.  We had planned on going on a walk after opening the coconut, but after that I said there was no way I was going on a walk it hurt too much. 

    About half an hour after taking Dr Christopher’s Complete Tissue and Bone Formula the pain was gone so we went on our walk.  I totally forgot about it until I was talking to a customer  about the Complete Tissue and Bone Formula the next day.  She asked me if I used it and I replied that I did just yesterday and then realized that I hadn’t even thought about my toe at all that day.  I looked at it and it was fine.  Another success story!

Dr Christophers Complete Tissue and Bone Ointment    Dr Christopher’s Complete Tissue and Bone Ointment is another must have on hand item. My sister has had great results using it for carpal tunnel, that’s better than surgery!  We love to use it on our joints and anywhere it hurts.  I’ve used it on blisters, just kept a band aid wet with the ointment and had the new skin grow completely in a week.  Use it for arthritis, bursitis, bruises, eczema, sprains, strains and so on.  I have used it on burns and had the pain gone within minutes.  Keep the ointment on the burn just add more ointment as needed and not removing the old, and most will heal with no scars. Great for sunburns and more, just try it and see for yourself!.  

Dr Christophers Herbal Lectures    Read some great healing stories about Dr. Christopher’s Complete Tissue and Bone Formula on Herbal Legacy, including finger re-grown after accident, hernias, spinal problems and more.    Listen to Dr. Christopher as he teaches people how to use all of his formulas on the Dr Christopher’s Herb Lectures CD’s.

Healing @ Home, The Crash Course

Herbal First Aid and Health Care book    My husband and I attended a workshop this past weekend called “Healing @ Home, The Crash Course”.  It was taught by Dr Kyle Christensen, who is the author of Herbal First Aid and Health Care, which is the book that covers Western Botanicals product line.  This is a great book, very different from Dr Christopher’s Herbal Home Health Care, and worth getting.  Dr. Christensen is a chiropractor and naturopathic physician as well a Master Herbalist from the School of Natural Healing and until recently was a co-owner of the Western Botanicals products that we carry.

    I was amazed to find out that many of Western Botanical formulations are in the Herbal First Aid and Health Care book. What a bonus for anyone that buys it, because so many herbal companies will not give out their formulas. In the workshop Dr. Christensen made his Immune Boost formula found on page 230. I have made extracts using Western Botanicals bulk herbs and know how easy it is, but others were amazed that was all there was to it.  He showed us the best straining cloth I have ever seen, a paint straining bag that is reusable.  I went and purchased the two sizes at Home Depot and will enjoy using these for many years to come.  Now I have to figure out what to do with the big box of cheesecloth I bought!

    Dr. Christensen used two of the five gallon paint strainer bags and showed us how easy it is to make greek yogurt. He then used some of the fresh whey that drips out as the yogurt is hanging and taught us how to make fermented vegetables, which are a great source of good bacteria for the gut. I’m excited to start adding fermented veggies to our diet.  Fresh whey keeps for a month in the fridge and can be added to green smoothies to make them full of good bacteria!  We need all the good bacteria we can get to stay healthy!  Eating fermented vegetables and yogurt will help keep candida under control.  Food Matters just posted an article and video about making fermented veggies where you can learn more about the importance of adding this to your diet!

    Dr. Christensen also shared with us the fact that so many herbal companies are using very poor quality herbs to make their products.  Companies would approach them asking to buy their “spent” herbs after they were used to make extracts. Would you want to eat herbs that had the goodness already extracted from them?  No wonder there are so many bad products out there.  He mentioned that both Dr Christopher's and Western Botanicals use the highest quality herbs available and that is why they work.  Their products are pure herbs, no fillers are ever added, so you know you are getting only the whole herb with their healing properties intact.  Read Dr Christopher's Quality Statement and Western Botanicals Quality Statement and you will know why you should be using these herbal formulas for your health and healing.
    I love learning how to take care of myself and my family.  Herbal First Aid and Health Care would be a great book to add to your collection and will help you with your endeavors to be medically independent.

Is it time to make the switch to Natural Medicine?

Dr. Chrishtopher's Formulas

    Dr. Christopher’s formulas are 35% off, bulk formulas 15% off through Friday June 28th 11:00 am MT.

    It is alarming to know that prescription drugs now kill more people in the US than Heroin and Cocaine combined.  Another sad fact is that over the counter drugs are just as dangerous.  We know a 12 year old girl who died from a Tylenol overdose and numerous people that have died from prescription drug overdose.  Having your child die is a hard way to find out that all medications need to be locked away.

    Drugs treat symptoms and once prescribed can lead to the need for more and more medications to treat the side effects. Natural medicine works on the cause to bring a person back to good health. It takes time and people need to be willing to change.  Much of the healing can happen with implementing the correct diet, adding herbal formulas and essential oils make the healing happen even quicker. Learn more about the difference between Natural Healing vs. Conventional Medicine here.

    Do your homework on whatever you have been prescribed and see if you are experiencing any side effects or symptoms that are listed from taking the drugs. The herbal formula names give an indication of the ailment they treat.  Scroll through the various pages of Herbs First website or call us at 801-228-1901 to see what natural treatments may be beneficial to you.  It is up to you to decide whether you are willing to continue your current course or if you have had enough and are ready to make some changes toward better health.

    Resolving the underlying cause of health issues is much more rewarding than medicating the symptoms. Obtaining good health is simple, but making the change often is not easy until you have incorporated healthy lifestyle habits. Enjoy eating whole natural foods and avoid chemical-laden, processed foods and drinks that have no value and are in fact detrimental to you.  Engage in an active life of movement and exercise, and your body will reward you with the good health you have been searching for. The choice is yours, I assure you it is worth it!

    Search for answers to health and healing on the Herbal Legacy website run by The School of Natural Healing.  Then come back and purchase these Dr Christopher's formulas at Herbs First.
