Are you still struggling with health issues?

Dr. Christopher always said “There are no incurable diseases, there are only incurable people” and I find that statement to be very true. I will have people ask me what to do for "name of disease”. The first thing out of my mouth is always about food, and this is where the person almost always holds up their hands and says I don’t want to hear anything about changing my diet. I have watched many of those people die over the years, and it is a sad thing that people won’t give up the processed foods they are eating and will poison their bodies with radiation, chemotherapy and drugs trying to get well. Please invest in yourself and your family by learning about how much food matters. Our health is dependent on the food we eat and if we are eating nothing but garbage, then we need to expect that our bodies will be a product of what we eat. Learn about Dr. Christopher’s Mucusless Diet and view videos at Original Fast Foods  and other websites that teach about all the wonderful foods that will help you have the best health.

Dr. Christopher's Herbal Cleansing KitCleanse. The purpose of cleansing is to prepare the body for natural healing. Cleansing is very helpful even if people don’t want to change their diet. Often when I mention cleansing people say, “I poop, I don’t need to cleanse”. Pooping is good, but there is a lot more to cleansing than the fact that you poop. Do you poop three times a day? If not you need colon cleansing. Do you have bad skin? Likely you need Blood Cleansing and Liver Cleansing. Impurities leave the body via sweat, bowel movements and urination, hence a Kidney Cleanse helps to keep things cleaned up as much as the Bowel Cleanse does. Dr. Christopher said that the blood stream is the river of life, what does your river look like? The Liver filters a huge amount of the toxins out of the body, you clean your furnace filter, shouldn't you clean your liver? We have amazing pricing on the cleanse kits.

Dr. Christopher's VitalerbsDr. Christopher's Jurassic GreenNourish. Once the body is cleansed it will be able to absorb the nutrients found in the whole foods and herbs. Nourishing herbs for everyone include Vitalerbs & Jurassic Green. They are packed full of phyto-nutrients, whole food vitamins, trace minerals, active enzymes, chlorophyll, balanced amino acids and other important nutrients needed by the body. Both Jurassic Green and Vitalerbs help to promote alkalinity of the body. Vitalerbs & Jurassic Green are vitamins and minerals your body can use. Both are available in capsules
and powder.

Dr. Josh Axe, Eat DirtHeal. Healing happens naturally and at its own speed as the body continues to eliminate impurities and strengthen through proper nourishment. One of the signs of healing comes with occasional aches & pains in the areas where the cleaning is most acute. Patience is required as the body goes through these phases. Our bodies were designed to be able to heal themselves and they will heal if we give them the proper nutrients. Herbal Legacy is a great place to learn more about which products to use to treat your ailment. Leaky Gut Syndrome is a good place to start and an issue for many people.  Read Dr. Axe's book, Eat Dirt to learn more in depth about how to heal your leaky gut with more in depth diet directions.

Essential Oils For Seasonal Allergies

    My seasonal allergies have been much better over the years but the worst time for me has always been the end of April and into May when all those lovely Lilac bushes are blooming. Unfortunately someone brought a big bouquet of lilacs to church and I was around them for more than three hours. I was doing fine on Sunday but the next day my eyes were really suffering from the itchies and nothing was calming them down.

Garden Essence Oils Peppermint    I happened to be looking on my facebook page and my niece mentioned that she was having seasonal allergy problems and was using equal parts of lemon, lavender  and peppermint essential oils. I had never heard about using oils for allergies, so I looked it up and it looked like it would work. I got out an atomizer bottle and mixed the three oils in it and got the diffuser going. I had it coming on every ten minutes the first day and I would go in and get my nose right over it and breathe it in. After a couple of hours the itchiness in my eyes calmed right down.

Garden Essence OIls Lavender    I have kept the diffuser going for 5 minutes every 20 minutes for the past week and have not had a flare up. I have been amazed to have no allergy problems when I have left my home. I really like the smell of the three oils together, when normally lavender is not one I enjoy. These three essential oils help clear the breathing, calm the inflammatory response and boosts the immune system. I am sold on the effectiveness of using essential oils to fight off allergy symptoms. Basil, Eucalyptus and Tea Tree oil are also oils that work well for allergies.

Advanced Aromatherapy diffuser    I love the Advanced Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser. I use the oils full strength in the diffuser to get the most medicinal value out of them. I put 30 drops of each of the three oils into the atomizer bottle over a week ago and it is still using them running 24 hours a day.

How Long Do Herbs Last?

Western Botanicals Colon Cleanse    I had a customer call to order some Western Botanicals Colon Cleanse because she just used the last capsule from the bottle that she bought 15 years ago. She stated that the last capsule worked as well as the first capsule did when she had bought them fifteen years ago! I have had people ask if their capsulized herbs were still good after the expiration date and I always said yes, and that I wouldn’t hesitate to use capsulized herbs that were ten years old. Now we know that they are even good after 15 years and I would say beyond that!

    How can the herbs be good after that long? Oxidation is what makes the herbs lose potency. Since they are encapsulated there is very little oxygen present to allow the herbs to oxidize. Capsulized herbs are a good way to store herbs for times of need. I always have a variety of formulas on hand because you want to have them when you need them! So hold on to those out dated bottles, they are still good!

    Herbal extracts that are in an alcohol base also have a much longer shelf life beyond what the label says. This is true as long as it is in alcohol based and stored under good circumstances such as in a cool basement, or in a home cupboard without huge fluctuations in temperature.

   Herbal extracts in glycerine have a much shorter shelf life. I have used them a year or two after the date, but not much more than that. Ointments have a two year life if refrigerated. They are oils and oils go rancid, so be sure to refrigerate them if it isn’t something that you can use up fairly quickly.

    Bulk herbs will lose potency over time. It is best to know how you are going to use your bulk herbs and what the time frame is. Two years would be an average time to use bulk herbs at their highest potency. If you have them beyond that time I would either capsulize them or make an extract/tincture out of them.

    Herbs are my medicine of choice, besides eating healthy food, which is also medicine. Colon Cleanse is Western Botanicals best selling formula!
