Herbs are not addicting, only healing

A Healthier You Radio Show    The most recent radio show on A Healthier You,  David and Fawn Christopher talk about the recent reports of more and more pain killer deaths in the United States. Deaths for women for prescription drug overdose is up 400% from twelve years ago and up 265% for men. Simple fact is if you don’t take drugs you won’t die from an overdose!

    Some of the reasons I got into natural health care was first to have control of my health which I enjoy doing very much. Another was to avoid the problems that occur with conventional medications, dependancy being one of them. I have turned down pain prescriptions after dental work and surgeries, though they would always insist I take it with me just in case. I have never filled a pain prescription and have always done just fine using the herbs to treat the pain as well as aid in the healing process.

Complete Tissue and Bone Formula capsules    The top of the list that David talked about is Dr. Christopher's Complete Tissue and Bone Formula which I always take for any type of surgery or injury.  It works for pain and for healing.  When you start hurting you know you need to take more. Over time your body gets well and you don’t need it anymore.  No fear of addiction when you use herbs.

Dr. Christopher's Nerve Formula    The next formula David talked about in the radio show is Dr. Christopher's Nerve Formula.  This is great for nerve pain and repair.  Many people have nerve pain and as someone that has had nerve damage due to dental work I can attest to the fact that nerve pain really hurts. I used Dr. Christopher's Relax-Eze which is another nerve formula.  It took about six months to repair the damage, but once it was repaired, I had no more pain.  And again, no addiction, only healing.

    Another reason for pain is inflammation. Many people aren’t realizing that inflammation is caused by poor diet. We have a great formula to help inflammation, but the best thing do to is to work on diet.  Here are a couple of links to help you with diet changes: Traci's Transformational Kitchen and Original Fast Foods

Western Botanicals Anti-Inflammation Formula    In the meantime, Western Botanicals Anti-Inflammation formula will help you while you work on diet changes.  Anti-Inflammation Formula is effective in dramatically reducing pain and inflammation, and the herbs used are some of the safest available and can be used on a long-term basis. So if you don’t work on diet, you can buy this formula forever!  We don’t mind!

    The list goes on and on and there are herbs to treat any illness or disease.  Education is the key to your “vehicle”. Traditional medicine is not about health, it is just damage control. The School of Natural Healing has their  Family Herbalist course for only $195.00, get started today! It is well worth it to learn how to take care of yourself. 

    Have a great month!

Do it yourself - Bug Repellant Spray and Sunburn Relief Spray

    Many times we have been at outdoor events and gotten the over spray from people using bug repellant.  I find that so inconsiderate!  You would think they would do it before they came, but no, time after time people are spraying their obnoxious sprays all over everyone.  Commercial sprays smell nasty and are not healthy to inhale, much less have soaking into your skin.

    It is easy to make your own Deet free - chemical free bug repellant. There are two things you need to make a great bug repellant. 
Bug Repellant

    4 oz. Vodka
    1 teaspoon Garden Essence Essential Oils Pest-Away with Catnip (5 ml.)

Put Vodka and Pest Away with Catnip in 4 oz. spray bottle and shake.  Spray on exposed skin and in hair several times a day to keep the bugs away. 

Sunburn Relief Spray

    2 oz. Aloe Vera Gel
    2 oz. Distilled Water
    15 drops Garden Essence Lavender Essential Oil
    15 drops Garden Essence Tea Tree Essential Oil
    10 drops Garden Essence Peppermint Essential Oil
Amber Spray BottleMix all ingredients in a 4 oz. glass spray bottle.  Spray liberally as often as desired on sunburned skin.  Keep the left over solution in the refrigerator.

    Herbs First now has 1 oz and 4 oz glass spray bottles  to use with your own herbal and essential oil formulations.

    As a natural sunscreen I like to use Coconut Oil, I put it on several times throughout the day.  Sometimes I slightly burn, so I just put more coconut oil on and by morning it has turned into a tan.  Complete Tissue and Bone Ointment is a great sunburn oil, if you don't mind being oily! I would use it if I had a really bad burn.  Order it here.

    Enjoy your summer!
