Benefits of CBD

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the compounds that is found in the cannabis plant. There a hundreds of different compounds found in the cannabis plant, but CBD is one of the compounds that does not affect the users in a psychedelic way. CBD oil is a non-intoxicating compound that has shown promise in treating and managing symptoms of a broad range of diseases. The compound has anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties.

There are some historic text that show that CBD was used in 2900 BC by the Chinese as a joint discomfort healer. While in 1000 BC, people in India used it as an overall health supporter. Although CBD seems to be a new health drug, it has been around for a long time and still has the same health benefits.

Health Benefits

CBD can help with a verity of health concerns from cancer to anxiety. When it comes to anxiety, studies show that 30% of adults in the U.S. and 25% of teenagers are affected by anxiety. Another on of the great benefits that comes from CBD is that it is an anti-anxiety compound and is effective in treating social anxiety, general anxiety, and panic attacks. CBD doesn’t have any of the side effects that pharmaceutical anti-anxiety medications have.

Along with helping relieve anxiety, CBD is also used to help with joint discomfort, inflammation, and pain management. It works to suppress certain processes and signals in the brain to provide relief. CBD eliminates many types of discomfort by interacting with receptors in our brain. By doing so users of CBD are able to find some form of solace.

How to use CBD

CBD comes in many different forms, but the most common is oil. The oil form of CBD is also the most potent and easiest way to intake it. Most CBD oil comes in a bottle with a dropper, this makes it easy to measure and ingest.

If you have low pain, recommended usage is 5-10 milligram dosage. If you have medium pain, recommended usage is 10-20 milligram dosage. If you have high pain, recommended usage is 20-110 milligram dosage. You can always start with a low dosage for 3-7 days and then go back and see if it's helping, then add more to the dosage as needed. It takes about 30-60 minutes for the CBD effects to kick in and for the pain to go away. The effects of the CBD should last about 4-6 hours, depending in the dosage and the person.

Live Long & Live Well with Tre!

Science has slandingpage_lhown that a special group of nutrients called polyphenols, typically found in superfoods, plays a wide range of critical roles in supporting and maintaining optimal health, longevity, and cognitive capacity throughout life.  Research shows that when polyphenols are absent or deficient in our diets, aging processes are accelerated and disease risk is higher. Conversely, when they are abundant in the diet, aging is slowed and disease risk is lowered. Tré contains those special groups of nutrients that will help you live long and live well.

 What are the nutritional values of Tré?

  • 6 times the alpha-lipoic acid of fresh spinach
  • 5-10 times the resveratrol of fine red wine
  • 7 times the antioxidant power of ripe red tomatoes
  • 20 times the effectiveness of fresh pomegranate juice

Through its potent mix of natural ingredients, Tré will help you live longer and healthier. The juice enhances metabolism to burn fat and calories.  It helps lower blood pressure, reduces cholesterol, and fight serious diseases.

The Key to Crohn's

crohns.jpeg

Crohn’s disease, which affects over 560,000 people in the United States, is traditionally managed with surgery or prescription medications. Recent findings may change that. A new study has found a correlation between fungal and bacterial populations in Crohn’s patients. Fungi Candida Tropicalis, Serratia marcescens, and the bacteria E. coli were found in abundance in the guts of Crohn’s sufferers, with a strong lack of good bacteria. Even with factors such as genetics and diet taken into account, the amounts of pathogens were found consistently high across the board.

Fortunately, lactobacillus acidophilus has been shown to slow the growth of Candida in the bowel, and these friendly organisms actually help to produce a type of natural antibiotic that will kill off Candida overgrowth.

 

NEOLIFE’S ACIDOPHILUS PLUS differs from other probiotics in that it:

  • provides 5 billion live bacteria – more than the probiotics in 10 servings of yogurt!
  • supplies an exclusive blend of 5 types of probiotics
  • uses gel-guard protection to ensure probiotic delivery through stomach acid to the small intestineacidophilus

Acidophilus has many benefits, including but not limited to:

  • higher b-vitamin absorption
  • long-term colon health
  • reduced risk of colon cancer
  • easier lactose digestion
  • strengthened immunitycrohns-disease-research.jpg
  • reduce food allergy symptoms
  • less “bad” bacteria
  • IBD and IBS relief

 

Garlic has demonstrated significant anti-fungal activity and is especially active against candida, both in invivo and invitro studies, so an evening dose of Garlic is prudent.  (This should be taken some hours after taking Acidophilus, as Garlic can inactivate friendly probiotics, too.)

NEOLIFE’S GARLIC ALLIUM COMPLEX:provitaminai-lt10

  • Utilizes targeted technology to ensure release in the intestines for optimal benefit
  • Contains the complete allium family—garlic, onions, leeks, chives, etc.
  • Provides rosemary to help protect tablets from being destroyed by stomach acid
  • The only garlic clinically proven to kill ALL 22 strains of Candida yeast
  • Each serving provides the antioxidant power of a whole clove of garlic
  • Garlic breath free!

Historical benefits of garlic include:

  • Heart health
  • Reduced cholesterol & blood pressure
  • Lower risk of cancer
  • Increased immune response
  • Normal cell growth
  • Improved thyroid health
  • Balanced blood sugar
  • Alzheimer & Dementia relief
  • Heavy metal detox

Vaccine Safety: Truth or Myth?

needle.jpeg

It's no secret vaccines have their enemies. The number of parents who aren't vaccinating their kids is growing, and no matter how much the CDC, FDA or AMA clamors against them, these parents have good reasons.

With the Disney measles fiasco came a volcano of heat on both sides of the issue. Vaccine advocates and opponents have argued constantly about whether vaccines are safe or, in fact, dangerous to our children and the future health of our nation, as a whole.

Scientifically, when the many facets of the immune system are studied, vaccine safety is highly questionable.

Ethically, vaccines are even more questionable.

Several vaccines, the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), chickenpox, whooping cough, shingles, tetanus, and polio vaccines  each contain aborted fetal tissues, on top of other animal tissues and known toxins, such as mercury, aluminum, and thimerosal.

The body can fight these toxins in small amounts if ingested properly. However, when injected into the body through a syringe, vaccines bypass the body's regular protection system - the gut. The gut, through digestion, can choose which chemicals are allowed into the bloodstream and can omit mercury and aluminum from being absorbed. However, when injected, these chemicals dive directly into the bloodstream and are absorbed by and collect in the body's organs, the brain included. Within the brain it can cause issues such as Parkinsons, Alzheimer's, Gulf's War Syndrome, and other neurological issues that, in recent years, are growing more and more common.

CDC/FDA-acknowledged side effects range from:

  • redness or swelling
  • poor appetite
  • fever
  • drowsiness
  • nausea/vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • respiratory infections
  • yeast infections
  • and tenderness

to:

  • fainting
  • seizures
  • Erythema (the rash associated with Lyme's disease)
  • blood in stools
  • pneumonia
  • brain inflammation or tumors
  • blindness
  • deafness
  • epilepsy
  • and death.

The MMR vaccine alone has caused 103 deaths in the US since 2003, while the measles has caused none. 

As vaccine rates have risen, infant mortality rates have, as well. The United States has the highest rate of vaccination in the world. Infants are given 26 vaccines within their first year alone. We also have the highest number of infant deaths. Furthermore, the increase in vaccinations correlates with a marked increase in childhood health issues such as allergies, asthma, gut issues, chronic infections, serious brain damage (including autism), and learning and developmental issues such as ADD and ADHD.

Autoimmune disorders have also grown in number. Although further study needs to be done on the subject, the correlation makes sense. The more these artificial, toxin-laced vaccines are injected into the immune system - a vast, complicated, multi-faceted process we don't yet fully comprehend - the greater the risk of injuring that system.

What about the widely-touted benefits of vaccination, such as herd immunity? What about the elimination of these infectious diseases?

When it comes to herd immunity, vaccine-acquired immunity is eminently different from the immunity gained from disease recovery. Immunity from vaccines eventually fades, allowing vaccinated people (children and adults alike) to not only catch the disease they've been inoculated against, but also to act as carriers. 

This may also occur during the vaccine shedding period - generally a two or three week span after injection when a vaccinated person may experience a lighter version of the disease and/or spread the disease to others.

Vaccinated persons often cannot discern when or if they are carrying a disease, hence these widespread, seemingly random outbreaks, like the most recent measles outbreak and the whopping cough outbreak of 2010.

This makes vaccinated persons a far greater danger to unvaccinated persons than the reverse.

Worse, vaccines are NOT eliminating infectious diseases. In fact, most of these common diseases were on their way out before the development of their vaccines.vaccinesIt was likely an increased understanding of sanitation, science, and nutrition  that caused the decrease in these diseases before the introduction of vaccines.

What vaccines have accomplished, however, is the development of newer, stronger vaccine-resistent strains of the very diseases they claim to prevent and eradicate. It's the same issue scientists are seeing with antibiotics. The stronger they make the "cure", the stronger the infection resists.

As for the claims that vaccines DO NOT cause autism, the evidence against those claims is piling up day by day, though the government tries tirelessly to cover it up.

A senior scientist for the CDC, William Thompson, recently issued a statement with his lawyer admitting he omitted evidence from a 2004 study indicating that the MMR vaccine - the very vaccine being so tirelessly promoted by the media - does present a raised risk of autism in African American males. He says, "Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed." He goes on to say, "There have always been recognized risks for vaccination and I believe it is the responsibility of the CDC to properly convey the risks associated with receipt of those vaccines."

The CDC, however, has not been properly conveying those risks. In fact, as the recent media storm can attest, they're doing the very opposite.

In 1986, an act called the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act was established to keep vaccine makers and physicians from being sued for any injury caused to a child injected with a vaccine. Any adverse side effects or death proven and attributed to a vaccine are responded to with a payment to the family of the victim.

The act's program office controls and coordinates all immunization-related policies in the CDC, FDA, NHIS, and the Health Resources and Services Administration.

Vaccines are constantly promoted as safe. If that were the case, why is the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act so necessary? Established so early after the development of their key vaccines, such an act points to a quick realization of the need to protect themselves from any slander or injury.

The government is protected from vaccine damage. The people of America, however, are not.

How can we protect ourselves and our families without the use of vaccines?

The answer is simple. Through nursing and continuing to nurture children with a whole food, organic, nutritious diet, we can arm children with the tools they need to fight and conquer infection without the use of these dangerous medications.

A healthy mother's milk provides all the protection a baby needs, and whole foods alone have curative properties stronger than most medications, and without any dangerous side effects. Whole food alone have nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants capable of fighting off infections as simple as colds and flu to harsher diseases, such as multiple sclerosis and cancer.

Herbal supplements can also help prevent and reverse infections. The number of immune-boosting, antioxidant-rich, infection-fighting herbs is virtually countless. Silver is one of the best non-herbal remedies, and if the Nature's Sunshine brand is used, can be taken safely in large quantities with no adverse side effects.

Most vaccines target diseases that were once common, easily treated, and most of the time, non-life-threatening. Why should we give our children, the future of America, something that could give them autism, Alzheimer's or Dementia, ADD, ADHD, seizures, or something worse?

The answer is simple. We shouldn't.

How to Jumpstart - Or Kill - Your Immune System

exercise.jpeg

This time of year, germs seem to be everywhere. Whether it's the common cold, the flu, a stomach bug, a mystery respiratory virus, or something much, much worse, it seems like coming down with some sort of sickness is inevitable. It doesn't have to be.

Below are two lists: one containing the best things you can do to preserve and promote a healthy immune system, and another containing the worst things.

Beneath that, we have a list of things around the house that are most likely to be germ hot-spots, and things you'll want to clean very, very well.

BEST:

  • Probiotics: gut health comprises 80% of the immune system. Keep the gut healthy, and the immune system will be, too!
  • Exercise: this boosts white blood cell activity to fight off infection.
  • Weight Management: make it a goal to obtain and maintain a healthy weight. Obesity cripples the immune system and several other processes and organs in the body.
  • Diet: eat organic whole food - mainly fruits and vegetables. These are high in antioxidants and nutrients the body needs to support healthy immune function.
  • Supplement: some of the best natural, herbal supplements to support a healthy immune system include ionic silver, elderberry, echinacea, vitamin C, and garlic, though there are many, many more!
  • Water: stay hydrated and drink half your body weight in water daily. This will allow the body to better flush out toxins.

WORST:

  • Smoking: this inhibits immune function and can leave the body more susceptible to disease.
  • Alcohol: prevents the body from absorbing nutrients necessary to proper immune health. As a result, this causes the immune system to be sluggish in response to infection.
  • Stress: it's no secret that stress damages the body. The immune system is no exception. Stress reduces immune response, weakens white blood cells, and causes inflammation. Relaxation techniques and calming herbs can help relieve tension.
  • Sugar: it's no secret sugar is bad for you. Aside from meeting all the requirements of being an addictive drug, sugar also prevents white blood cells from killing germs and bad bacteria.
  • Processed Foods & Sodas: the chemicals, preservatives, and pesticides used in the growing and processing of these foods are toxic on the entire body, not just the immune system. Combine this with sugar and you can say goodbye to your immune system.
  •  Prescription Medications: both prescribed and over-the-counter medications are very foreign and toxic to the body. They weaken the body rather than heal, and prolonged use of antibiotics can have severe damage on the immune system.

THE TOP GERM HOT SPOTS:

  • The Kitchen Sink
  • Kitchen Washrags/Sponges
  • Children's Toy
  • Telephones
  • Keyboards/Remote Controls
  • Toothbrushes
  • Public Soap Dispensers
  • Vacuum Cleaner

The best, most effective cleaners for problems such as  these are GNLD's Green, and Nature's Sunshine's Silver Shield. Both can be diluted and sprayed on objects, surfaces, and even pets! They're gentle and extraordinarily safe. We carry both!

Fight the Mystery Virus, Colds, & Flu Naturally!

sick.jpeg

It's early September again. Temperatures will soon be dropping, and with this drop comes - you've guessed it! - colds, flu, viruses, and more. Already there's a sickness dubbed "the mystery virus" documented in ten states and sweeping the nation quickly. Its symptoms include normal cold signs, such as sneezing, sniffling, runny or stuffy nose, coughing, etc., but the real kicker is the wheezing. People and children, particularly, with asthma can have a difficult bout with the virus, and therefore are advised to take precautions.

With this virus spreading, it's easy to fret. However, at Nature's Finest Nutrition, we have three products to promote prevention and recovery from this virus, and they're listed below with their historical uses and benefits.

 

1. NEOLIFE'S HERBAL RESPIRATORY FORMULA.herbal resp

According to their website, this product: "keeps lungs clear for easy breathing."

It also:

  • Promotes clear, quiet breathing, clear bronchial lining, and reduced congestion.
  • Supports regular and unrestricted bronchial and pulmonary airflow.

Its ingredients and historical uses include:

  • Elecampane root, to help promote air flow to the lungs.
  • Elder flower, to help relieve sneezing, itching, and other discomforts often associated with dust and pollen.
  • Thyme, to promote clear, quiet breathing and reduce congestion.

The great thing about this herbal formula is that it can be taken on an empty stomach, and a great deal of it can be taken for a short period of time.

 

 

2. NEOLIFE'S RESP-ELEVEN.resp-eleven

It is said to "help clear your sinuses and soothe distressed tissue for free, comfortable breathing."

It also:

  • Supports normal airflow in the sinuses and lungs.
  • Promotes a healthy immune response.

Its ingredients and historical uses include:

  • Horseradish root to support normal airflow in the sinuses and lungs, and promote a healthy immune response.
  • Pleurisy root and hyssop to promote clear, open airways, free of restrictions or excess moisture content, especially in the upper respiratory tract.

This formula does need to be taken with food.

 

 

3. NATURE'S SUNSHINE'S SILVER SHIELD.

This colloidal and ionic silver product is completely non-toxic, using particle-size colloids for maximum use in the body. It uses a patented technology called Silver Sol  shown to be several times more effective than colloidal and ionic silver products. Its cellular formation is super-charged to spread throughout the body at an exponential rate to heal the bosilverdy faster.

It's historical uses include:

  • anti-bacterial
  • anti-fungal
  • anti-viral
  • alleviating colds and flu
  • stimulating the immune system
  • fighting and killing nearly any of infection (including yeast and even leprosy!)
  • boosting wound healing
  • soothing burns, sunburns, and diaper rash
  • cleansing the body, blood, and brain
  • combating pneumonia, MRSA, Malaria, AIDS, HIV, and more!

Also, like the Herbal Respiratory Formula, large amounts of this product can be taken in small windows of time. A bottle a day may safely be taken for several days in a row, and unlike any other colloidal silver products, Silver Shield can be taken without the risk of ever turning the skin blue. 

Thank the new Silver Sol technology. There's nothing like it!

If you have any questions about dosages for these products, or anything of that sort, call us at (423) 899-8422 or contact us by email (naturesfinestnutrition (at) gmail.com), or feel free to check us out on our website or on our Facebook page. We’re always eager to help!
