Cures for Congestion

Congested? Coughing? Trouble breathing? Respiratory issues got you down? Nature's Finest Nutrition has you covered! Taking a combination of NeoLife's Herbal Respiratory Formula and Vitamin A will heal an irritated respiratory system and protect it from future infections.

Herbal Respiratory Formula

One dose of this product contains seven different herbs. Elecampane, thyme, and aniseed promote regular, unrestricted airflow; Elderflower, licorice, and bayberry promote a healthy, clear lining. These herbs are mild or sweet tasting, so if swallowing a pill isn't your cup of tea, they can easily be crushed into a smoothie or a protein shake.

Vitamin A

NeoLife's Vitamin A is derived solely from pollack, which is a species of cod fish that yields high quality, natural vitamin A. No synthetic oils here! The vitamin fortifies the linings of your nose, throat, and respiratory system, protecting them from infection and irritation. Natural emulsifiers help your body absorb the vitamin quicker, and make it water-miscible. You can dissolve the pill in water if you'd rather not swallow it.

Both the Herbal Respiratory Formula and the Vitamin A are safe for children, so feel free to use them next time your child develops a cold or the sniffles. We recommend 5-7 pills of each per day, but feel free to call us if you have questions about how many you should take.

Natural Flu Remedies

fluseason.jpg

It's flu season! The flu is a contagious respiratory illness that spreads through the air. People with depressed immune systems or nutritional deficiencies are most at risk, and stress, lack of sleep, and exposure to toxins can make symptoms worse. These symptoms include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Runny nose
  • Aches and pains
  • Headache
  • Fatigue

Conventional flu treatments include antiviral medications and over-the-counter pain relievers. However, there are natural remedies as well.

Echinacea (1,000 mg a day)

This herb fights viral and fungal infections. It has been shown to be just as, if not more effective than traditional medications like Tamiflu.

Elderberry (6 mL a day)

This herb reduces inflammation, relieves sinus pain, and boosts immunity.

Essential Oils

Peppermint and Frankincense oils protect the body against infection, and speed recovery. Rub them on your neck, or on the bottoms of your feet.

Honey and Cinnamon

Make a tea with honey, cinnamon, and some lemon to prevent mucus build up and stay hydrated.

HistaBlock: The Herbal Antihistamine

histamines.jpg

Caused by an immune response to pollen, dust mites, molds, foods, or other substances, allergies spark an inflammatory response in the body. Histamines are produced to attack the invading allergens, which then manifests itself as dry or watery eyes, itchy nose, nasal or lung congestion, runny nose, scratchy throat, or even hives. Prescription or over the counter anti-histamine medications can help relieve some of these symptoms, but they often come with a host of other side effects.

BENADRYL Lack of coordination Tremors Blurred or double vision

ALLEGRA Changes in menstrual cycle Vomiting Ear infections

CLARITIN Abdominal pain Nose bleeds Exhaustion

This is where HistaBlock by Nature's Sunshine comes in.

Customer Testimonies:

Joseph G.

ALJ is the only thing that helps with my allergies. I’ve been taking it for 20 years. No over the counter meds for me!

Ivette R.Ivette Rios2

My 12 year old son is very sensitive to outdoor allergens. All his allergy tests came back positive. He’s been on allergy meds for 5-6 years. He coughs, wheezes, and suffers severe asthma. He started using ALJ in November with good results and added Resp-Eleven in May the following year for allergy season. He noticed improvement in 2 weeks! Now he’s off all medication.

ALJ is available in capsules and in a liquid form.

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

Why You Need B Complex - NOT B12

Are you looking to take B12 for an energy boost? Do you want to strengthen your hair, skin, and nails with biotin? While it might seem easy to take a single B vitamin, it’s wiser to supplement with the whole B complex. If one B vitamin is deficient, it’s likely others are out of balance, too.

Besides, supplementation of any one B vitamin to the exclusion of the others can cause deficiencies.  For instance, supplementation of Thiamine by itself causes a severe drop in B6 levels.

B1 – Thiamine

  • boosts metabolism
  • supports immune health
  • enhances learning
  • improves mood

B2 – Riboflavin

  • eases migraines
  • strengthens eyes
  • reduces anemia
  • fights cancer

B3 – Niacin

  • relieves stress and anxiety
  • increases circulation
  • lowers cholesterol
  • nourishes nerves and brain

B5 – Pantothenic Acid

  • Increases energy metabolism
  • reduces stress
  • supports wound healing
  • fights acne

B6 – Pyroxidine

  • aids brain function
  • reduces rheumatoid arthritis
  • relieves morning sickness and PMS
  • protects eye health 

B7 – Biotin

  • strengthens hair, skin and nails
  • balances blood sugar
  • promotes heart health
  • nourishes thyroid and adrenal glands

B9 – Folate

  • aids fetal development
  • eliminates excess homocysteine
  • boosts mood
  • regulates red blood cell production

B12 – Methylcobalamin

  • boosts energy
  • helps prevent memory loss
  • aids digestion
  • strengthens hair, skin and nails

The Secret to Stronger Hair, Skin & Nails

Nature's Sunshine's HSN-W contains two of the richest sources of silica known in the plant kingdom—dulse and horsetail. Silica is converted by the body into calcium to improve the strength and flexibility of body tissues. It also improves skin tone and sheen. Sage acts as a powerful antioxidant and preserves the integrity of body tissues. Rosemary adds additional antioxidant protection. More historical benefits of the herbs are as follows.

HORSETAIL:

  • Richest plant source of silica
  • Reduces white spots on nails
  • Soothes acne, burns, & wounds
  • Fights athlete’s foot
  • Anti-inflammatory & antibacterial
  • Smooths dry, cracked heels
  • Aids bone rebuilding after breaks or fractures
  • Nourishes & strengthens hair, skin & nails

DULSE:

  • Rich in iodine
  • Helps energy metabolism
  • High in omega-3s
  • Nourishes thyroid health
  • Contains 34x the potassium of a banana

ROSEMARY:

  • Assists memory functionrosemary
  • Promotes healthy skin
  • Rich in iron
  • Protects vision
  • Fights cancer
  • Strengthens small blood vessels
  • Provides antioxidant activity

SAGE:

  • soothes inflammation
  • fights cancer-causing free radicals
  • supports respiratory health
  • boosts memory
  • promotes healthy skin
  • reduces acne & eczema

What about Biotin?

Part of the B vitamin complex, Biotin has been used by many men and women to thicken and grow their hair (skin and nails, too). However, there are no published scientific studies proving the effectiveness of biotin supplementation. Silica, as found in HSN-W, has been shown to strengthen and thicken hair in several studies.

The No. 1 Way to Naturally Overcome Kidney Stones

A beautiful flower, hydrangea is more than just a pretty face. Its seven-layer roots have been used for centuries for holistic healing. Native American populations in particular relied heavily on the herb to stave off numerous illnesses.In terms of nutrition, Hydrangea contains a number of essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients, including:

o Calcium o Phosphorous o Potassium o Magnesium o Zinc o Quercetin o Sulfur

Historically, hydrangea has been used to:

o support kidney health o encourage urinary flow o fight bladder infections o prevent kidney stones o dissolve kidney stones o support prostate health o lessen autoimmune disorders o aid waste removal o fight malaria o soothe enlarged prostate o ease blood sugar imbalances o reduce male pattern baldness

TESTIMONIES: Wanda C. I had issues with kidney stones. My right kidney was full and my left was swollen. Jim gave me Hydrangea, which I took for three months. When I went to get a CAT scan done, all the stones were gone!

Gglenlenn W. My wife suffered from severely large kidney stones. She underwent surgery to break them up and spent ten to fourteen days in pain, still without passing the stones. Jim told me about Hydrangea. After two days on it, the stones were gone! She experienced very little discomfort. We were thrilled!

Joy H. I have a chocolate, miniature poodle who had an issue with recurrent kidney stones. He had up to 40 built up in his body at one time. He had surgery to remove them. Now we keep him on Hydrangea and changed him to a diet of raw food. Three years later, now 9 years old, he’s stone-free and healthy.

James G. My son, David, brought me a bottle of Hydrangea for kidney stones. I took it and passed two stones.

Julie H. After going to the E/R with kidney stones twice, Jim Hangstefer recommended I take Hydrangea. I’ve taken two capsules of Hydrangea since December 2009 along with staying well-hydrated and I haven’t had ANY kidney stone attacks since!

Darrell D.Darrell Dunn.png I had kidney stones. Someone told me about Hydrangea, and I tried it reluctantly. To my surprise, it really worked! I use it consistently and tell other people too! It’s great to have a natural solution.

Things You Didn't Know About the Liver

There are at least 561 known functions of the liver. Here are a few:

  • Converts food into energy.
  • Average weight is 3 1/2 pounds.
  •  Converts beta-carotene into vitamin A.liver
  • Filters and discards estrogen from the blood stream. However, a weak or toxic liver is not always able to do so. The mutated estrogen goes back to do its job, but cannot function properly, so it causes problems in the bones, breast, uterus and ovaries. So although the part of the body has the symptoms, the issue usually originates within the liver.

Symptoms of a weak liver are:

  • Flatulence
  • Hypoglycemia
  • periodic discomfort in the right side
  • poor night vision.

It is important to note that a stressed liver will over-produce cholesterol.  Cholesterol medicine is designed to slow down the function of the liver so it will produce less cholesterol, but it ends up slowing down all its functions.   

Also, often before there are symptoms, the liver is both toxic and weak

Some herbal recommendations to put your liver back in balance are*:

  1. Liver Cleanse – The first choice. It cleanses and restores liver function, if having hormonal induced problems.
  2. Chinese Mood Elevator – Cirrhosis, strengthens liver.
  3. Chinese Liver Balance – Liver stress and inflammation.
  4. Gall Bladder Formula – Soothes bloating and gas, supports the liver, and stimulates function.
  5. Milk Thistle Combination – Detoxifies and builds liver.
  6. Cascara Sagrada – Encourages increased secretion of bile.
  7. Dandelion – Nourishes the liver and purifies blood.
  8. Fennel – Contains potassium, sulfur, and sodium.
  9. Safflowers – Aids sluggish liver.
  10. Saw Palmetto – Cleanses bacteria in liver.
  11. White Oak Bark – Helps prevent infection. Normalizes liver function.
  12. Yellowdock – Used to support liver during hepatitis.

Iridology

iridology-eye.jpg

What is it?

Iridology is the study of patterns and structures in the iris of the eye. Working via nerve impulses, it reveals areas and stages of inflammation throughout the body. Constitution, inherent weaknesses, health levels, transition, and changes in a person's body can all be seen in the iris.

How does that help me?

As a body changes, so do the patterns in the eye. Iridology can find weaknesses in the body before symptoms begin to surface. The method can also help keep track of weaknesses as they heal or warn against any other problems that may arise. It is a simple and economical way to stay afloat of the state of the body.

How do I find a specialist?

At Nature’s Finest, we have a trained Iridologist. Jim Hangstefer has been using Iridology for over twenty-five years and has helped thousands of people heal their bodies with nutrition. At the end of your session, you will have a complete assessment of all your body systems and know steps to follow to strengthen, correct, and rebuild those areas that may need help. An Iridology appointment costs only $65 and lasts for an hour.
