Kiss Your Seasonal Allergies Goodbye

woman-698943_1920.jpg

Spring is here, the pollen count is set at "very high," and seasonal allergies are in full swing. Congestion, runny nose, itchy eyes, sneezing, scratchy throat--is any of this sounding familiar? The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America estimates that 1 in 5 Americans suffer from seasonal allergies. Symptoms typically manifest in the lungs, nose, and eyes, but other symptoms can include

  • decreased concentration and focus
  • decreased decision making
  • exhaustion, and sleep disorders
  • mood swings
  • irritability
  • low blood pressure
  • hives
  • eczema
  • ear infections

Tired of experiencing the same symptoms year after year? Looking for relief, without the negative side effects of Benadryl, Claritin, and other pharmaceutical antihistamines? Good news! A combination of natural remedies and NeoLife's Herbal Respiratory Formula can help you kick seasonal allergies to the curb.

Natural Remedies

1. Eat an anti-inflammatory, alkaline diet. Add garlic, lemons, green leafy vegetables, bone broth, almonds, and probiotic-rich foods to your diet.

2. Buy local, raw honey. A tablespoon a day helps your body build up a tolerance to pollen that is common in your area.

3. Apple Cider Vinegar. Mix in some lemon juice and water to dilute the vinegar taste, and use it to flush your sinuses during an allergy attack.

4. Quercetin. A natural bioflavonoid found in onions, green tea, citrus fruits, and cruciferous vegetables (like broccoli or cauliflower), quercetin stabilizes the release of histamines in your body. It takes a few weeks of use to kick in, so be sure to stock up on vegetables and fruits before winter ends.

5. Stinging nettle leaf can be steeped in a tea, and naturally controls your body's histamine release.

6. Eucalyptus and Frankincense essential oils. These oils reduce inflammation and flush your body of bacteria, parasites, microorganisms, and toxins that can trigger an allergy attack. Use them in your laundry detergent, your diffuser, or rub some on your chest for all day relief.

NeoLife's Herbal Respiratory Formula

In conjunction with these natural remedies, try NeoLife's Herbal Respiratory Formula. One pill contains a comprehensive formula of seven different herbs:

  • Elecampane root: supports a strong immune system, promotes clear and healthy bronchial functioning.

ESSENTIAL OILS: why you need them in your life.

essential-oils-2385087_1920.jpg

Essential oils are the new black in the naturopathic, home remedy world. Chances are, you've heard a friend raving about her new bottle of lavender, or you have a bottle of peppermint oil on your shelf from Bed Bath and Beyond that you bought because it smelled nice. But few people know what exactly essential oils are, where to find non-synthetic brands, or just how much power is packed into those little 15ml bottles. So what's the big deal?

Extracted from the bark, leaves, roots, stems, and fruit of a plant, essential oils are a highly concentrated substance that contain the "essence" of their plant--the smell, but also the healing and nutritional capabilities. There are hundreds of different essential oils, which can be overwhelming; so today we're going to focus on a few that everyone should have in their homes.

Peppermint

One of the best oils on the market, with dozens of uses and health benefits--peppermint oil is a must have. It gives a cooling sensation when applied, which is perfect for muscle pain, cramps, and joint stiffness. It can reduce muscle spasms, leading many doctors to recommend it for nausea, and digestive problems like bloating, indigestion, and IBS (irritable bowel syndrome).

Other uses? Peppermint unclogs sinuses and soothes sore throats, providing relief for colds, coughs, asthma, and bronchitis. It acts as a natural, chemical free bug repellent, treats acne, sunburn, and bug bites, freshens breath, stimulates hair growth, and relieves headaches.

Bonus: Colicky infant? Teething toddler? Peppermint has been proven to heal colic and sooth teething gums.

Frankincense

Yes--the wise men's gift to Jesus is also an essential oil! It is commonly used in aromatherapy to reduce stress and anxiety, counteract insomnia, and decrease painful inflammation. But it can also boost your immune system, and even help prevent and/or treat cancer.

Bonus: take advantage of its antiseptic and disinfectant powers--use it as a household cleaner.

Lavender

Hands down the most used essential oil in the world, the benefits of Lavender were first discovered over 2,500 years ago. Ancient Egyptians used it in their mummification rituals.

Today, Lavender is a versatile oil. It reduces anxiety, improves brain function, and promotes deeper sleep in adults and children. It also has powerful skin benefits; it heals burns and wounds, restores skin complexion, reduces acne, and slows signs of aging.

Lavender can also be used to protect your body from symptoms of diabetes, and soothes symptoms of cancer and chemotherapy. It is used to treat migraines as well.

Bonus: it smells amazing. Dab a little bit on your neck and wrists as a natural, sweet-smelling perfume.

Eucalyptus

The benefits of Eucalyptus oil were first researched by Australian physicians. Today, people all over the world are using it for cold and flu relief, sinus and allergy treatment, and respiratory issues.

It also has many around-the-house benefits: use it as an odor remover, an air cleanser, a spot remover, and a natural soap. It is great for killing mold in your home.

Bonus: it is 100% safe to use on pets!

Clary Sage

Considered one of the top essential oils for hormones, Clary Sage is most commonly used to relieve symptoms of menopause or heavy menstrual cycles. It relieves cramps, staves off hot flashes, and corrects hormonal imbalances.

It can also be used to reduce cholesterol, increase circulation, and kill bacteria and infections. Preliminary studies have shown that it kills Leukemia cancer cells.

Bonus: need a confidence boost? Clary Sage alleviates anxiety, and leaves you feeling joyful and relaxed.

Cinnamon

Highly concentrated and packed with antioxidants, Cinnamon is great for your heart. It stabilizes blood sugar, boosts circulation, combats cardiovascular disease, and heals damage from heart attacks or strokes.

Other uses? Cinnamon reduces ulcers and promotes digestion health, burns fat, relieves depression, and kills parasites your body gets from undercooked meat, unclean vegetables, or traveling overseas.

Bonus: it has been shown to act as a natural aphrodisiac.

 

The most important thing to remember when in the market for essential oils? Check their quality! There is no third-party governing body that regulates essential oils, so companies that give their oils a "grade" or have "certified" on the bottle are not referring to external standards. Many companies sell adjusted, altered, or even synthetic oils. How can you avoid this?

Buy Nature's Sunshine! They back every bottle of our oils with our SureSource Guarantee, and have spend decades building trusted partnerships with their customers and suppliers. For each essential oil, they can provide several documents--signed by botanists, third party experts, and lab technicians at each phase of the product's life cycle--that certify pure, natural authenticity.

Stock up on our essential oils, knowing they're full of pure, concentrated plants, and have fun finding your favorites!

The Elimination Diet

theeliminationdiet_fruits-850x478.jpg

Do you think you might have a food allergy or sensitivity, but you aren't sure which foods to blame? Are you experiencing skin flare-ups, digestive issues, moodiness, or brain fog after meals? An elimination diet might be just what you need. Elimination diets are "short term eating plans that eliminate certain foods that may be causing allergies and other digestive reactions--then reintroduce the foods one at a time in order to determine which foods are, and are not, well-tolerated." It's estimated that over 15 million adults in the U.S alone suffer from food allergies and sensitivities. An elimination diet can help you pinpoint what is causing yours, and guide you in taking steps to heal your digestive system.

Which foods are removed during an elimination diet?

Eight foods account for almost all food reactions: milk, eggs, peanuts, nuts, wheat/gluten, soy, fish, and shellfish. Though elimination diets can vary in terms of exactly what foods are excluded, most will cut out:

  • gluten
  • dairy
  • soy
  • refined/added sugar
  • peanuts
  • corn
  • alcohol
  • eggs
  • all packaged, processed, and fast foods

How long does an elimination diet usually last?

Most diets last about 3-6 weeks. Antibodies--the proteins your immune system makes when it reacts to food--take about three weeks to dissipate. This is the minimum time needed for someone to fully heal from sensitivities, and notice improvements.

What are the benefits of an elimination diet?

There are so many benefits to doing an elimination diet. Here are just a few:

  • uncovers unknown food allergies
  • helps reduce digestive syndromes such as IBS and Leaky Gut
  • relieves skin irritations like eczema and acne
  • can help treat disorders such as ADHD, ADD, Autism, anxiety, and depression
  • calms inflammation, boosts your body's energy, and strengthens your immune system
  • increases awareness of the foods you eat, and which ones work best for your body

Elimination diets are not for losing weight, so don't think of them as quick ways to drop pounds. The goal is to heal your body.

This diet shouldn't last for more than 6 weeks--stay on it just long enough to pinpoint foods that aren't working for you. Continuing to follow such a strict diet for longer than 6 weeks can begin to deprive your body of the nutrients it needs to keep functioning at 100 percent.

Not sure how it's possible to cut so many foods out of your diet for 3-6 weeks, without running out of meals to make? There are tons of good websites that have elimination diet recipes, tips, and advice available to you for free. Or, you can stop by Nature's Finest Nutrition--we're always happy to help!

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.

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

Strengthen, Support & Build - with Cal-Mag!

Calcium is one of the most popular dietary supplements on the market, and for good reason. The body can’t absorb nutrients from conventional dairy. Homogenization and pasteurization zap the enzymes that help the body utilize vitamins and minerals, leaving nothing but empty calories. This unabsorbed calcium can cause build-up in arteries and actually cause the arteries themselves to stiffen and harden up. Excessive calcium can also cause kidney stones and affect the absorption of iron, magnesium and zinc.

These recent findings have caused most doctors to advise against calcium supplements, and in most cases, they’re right. Most companies use synthetic calcium that the body doesn’t recognize and cannot absorb. However, with the prevalence of osteoporosis and bone loss in America—to the point that by 2020 half of Americans over 50 years old will suffer from bone disorders—it’s clear we’re not eating enough calcium from plant-based or animal sources to meet our needs.

What’s more, we need more than just calcium for sufficient bone health.

The fourth most abundant mineral in the body, magnesium is required for bone density. Over 50% of the magnesium in the human body is found in the bones, and with over two-thirds of the American population deficient in this essential mineral, it’s no surprise bone loss has been on the rise.

Magnesium also:

  • Improves heart health
  • Regulates blood pressure
  • Helps balance blood sugar
  • Promotes a healthy gut
  • Relieves pain & inflammation

Vitamin D—fondly called the sunshine vitamin—is another requisite for a healthy skeletal system. It’s vital for calcium absorption, as well as many other processes in the body. Over half of Americans are deficient, which can lead to the development of several chronic health issues, including breast cancer, multiple sclerosis, type 1 diabetes, and more.

Vitamin D helps:

  • Boost metabolism
  • Increase health & longevity
  • Support immune function
  • Aid colon, breast & prostate health

Thankfully, NeoLife’s Cal-Mag provides all this and MORE in a balanced ratio of calcium to magnesium with vitamin D.

Ulandingpage_msing calcium derived from seashells, Cal-Mag:

  • Uses double chelation for the fastest available absorption of calcium, magnesium & minerals
  • Promotes healthyblood pressure
  • Relieves PMS symptoms
  • Supports optimal nerve & muscle function
  • Proven to postpone or prevent osteoporosis

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.

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

Abbie L.,

The day before my best friend’s wedding, I had an awful cold. The infection was in my chest. I was so raspy I could barely talk. Jim recommended Herbal Respiratory Formula. I took it faithfully all that day until bed. By the next day, my cold was 90% gone. I could breathe clearly, and I no longer sounded sick. I was amazed!

The No. 1 Digestive Blend for Heartburn & Acid Reflux

beets.jpg

Derived from organic, non-GMO beets, lemons, and licorice root, this 100% plant-based formula helps address the root of digestive issues such as heartburn and GERD (acid reflux). These symptoms can stem from a number of issues, including:

  • low OR excess stomach acid
  • esophageal valve failure
  • overeating (sugar, salt, hydrogenated oils, trans fats, etc.)
  • age (stomach acid decreases starting at age 30!)
  • malnutrition
  • stress

The medical solution to acid reflux or heartburn typically involves one of two medications: proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) or antacids.

PPIs and antacids have been linked to side effects including (but not limited to):

  • diarrhea
  • constipation
  • loss of appetite
  • stomach discomfort
  • calcium loss or deficiency
  • osteoporosis
  • kidney stones
  • swollen wrists or ankles
  • bone pain
  • gout
  • dementia
  • increased risk of heart and kidney diseases
  • weight gain
  • pneumonia

Beta Gest, on the other hand, helps balance the stomach for optimal digestion.

It also:

  • breaks down dairy
  • provides controlled-release hydrochloric acidlandingpage_m
  • improves digestion of protein
  • boosts absorption of calcium, iron, b-12, and phosphorous
  • maximizes digestive potential
  • aids absorption of nutrients
  • soothes gas and bloating
  • restores digestive factors compromised by stress or age
  • especially digests large meal

 

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIES:

Steve and Jan S. Stomach problems run in my family. I came to see Jim, who gave me Beta-Gest.   Now I have not had stomach problems.

Mark R. I have had stomach problems for years. Two and a half years ago, I started taking Nexium. Now I’m on Beta-Gest and Aloe, and am doing better than ever. My whole family is taking supplements.

Black Walnut & the Poison Ivy Challenge!

poison.jpeg

Over the years, Jim and Pat have had their fair share of poison ivy, oak, and sumac. They've seen tremendous results getting rid of it both personally and when it comes to friends, family, and customers, too! But what about when it comes to prevention?

Daniel with Wysong Tree Service came in asking for a daniel preventative recommendation for poison ivy. He had to service a tree covered in the stuff, with no way around it.

Jim and Pat recommended Black Walnut, taken internally and applied externally.

He started on it immediately.

Armed with Black Walnut, Daniel climbed the tree (in short sleeves!), cut down the poison ivy, and carted it away, all while taking Nature's Sunshine's Black Walnut Concentrate.

The Results?

He got a few spots, but they stayed put, no spreading, no itching. AT ALL.

In 2016, after a year of using Black Walnut for poison ivy, Daniel wrote this update:        

daniel tree“A lot of people ask me how I get rid of Poison Ivy, Poison oak, and Poison Sumac. This is what I use. It has been my solution to all of these plants for the last year and it works quickly. The itching will subside in less than an hour. The next day you will notice it start drying up. It works no matter how bad the rash is. The toxins cannot stand up to the Black Walnut Extract. I get mine from Jim and Pat @ Natures Finest on Lee Hwy. To prove how well it works. I've had people call me and tell me they have been to the doctor twice. Got the shots. They have taken every over the counter remedy there is and still not touched it. One guy had it for two weeks and couldn't get rid of it, till he tried this. You will know it's gone the first day. It works plain and simple. I drink half the bottle if it's a mild case. I drink the whole bottle if it's out of control.”

Plus, Black Walnut's benefits aren't just limited to keeping pesky plants at bay. This powerful herb also:

  • fights fungus (including candida)
  • balances the intestinal tract
  • aids digestion
  • reduces cholesterol levels
  • boosts the immune system
  • kills parasites
  • combats malaria
  • relieves inflammation
  • oxygenates the blood
  • supports healthy blood sugar levels
  • reduces blood pressure levels
  • nourishes the thyroid
  • and more!

Don't let poison ivy ruin your summer fun. If you have hiking or camping plans, load up on Black Walnut as a precaution, or take a bottle with you in case you come into contact with any pesky plants.

You won't regret it!

Nature's Remedy for Joint Pain, Leaky Gut Syndrome and Smooth Skin - Beef Gelatin!

pyramidsWhen most people hear the word "gelatin", they think Jell-O, or gelatin candies like Gummy Bears and Gummy Worms, or they think of gelatin capsules. While those are all uses of gelatin, most people don't know that there are many other, healthier uses of gelatin. Its history began in Ancient Egypt, where it was found preserved in an excavated Pharaoh's tomb, still congealed in a glue-like state.

History's first written record of gelatin was in 1682 by a Frenchman of the name Denis Papin, who discovered its tasteless, odorless, and colorless qualities after a series of experiments on the boiling of bones.

In the 1950s, it was used popularly in aspic dishes, which consisted of any combination of fruits, vegetables, meats, or other foods submerged and eaten in jellied broth.

Manufactured for the first time in 1974, gelatin was used to make jellies, marmalades, and other fruit spreads.

Shortly afterward, the popular Jell-O brand emerged - bleached, artificially sweetened and distorted into something entirely unlike its natural counterpart.

Made using the hides of cows and pigs, and processed beyond recognition, commercial gelatin has questionable nutritional value, at best.

Made at home using the cartilage and bones of chicken or beef, the health benefits and nutritional value is exponentially higher.

Surprisingly, for such a colorless, tasteless, odorless substance, gelatin contains eighteen amino acids - sadly, not all of which are essential (i.e. not made by the body and therefore required in our diets).

Those that aren't considered essential, however, have been subject to many studies showing that, if not essential, these amino acids should be considered "conditionally essential."

Two of these amino acids are glycine and proline.

Glycine can be made by the body, but often, due to poor diet (processed/fast foods, hormone-infused meat and dairy, GMOs, etc...) or other health conditions (including injury, arthritis/joint pain, pregnancy, infancy, etc.) cannot be made in large enough quantities satisfy the body's needs.

The same goes with proline. The body produces it, but often, due to Vitamin C deficiencies and other factors, the body either fails to produce enough, or the body cannot absorb and utilize it.

Gelatin helps to provide these nutrients on a large scale and with a huge amount of benefits.

Some of these include:

  • Supporting healthy growth in infants
  • Improving digestion of dairy/dairy products
  • Reversing undernourishment or malnutrition, as gelatin can be tolerated by the stomach when almost nothing else can
  • Preventing protein breakdown in muscles
  • Regulating hydrochloric acid levels in the stomach
  • Calming the gastrointestinal tract
  • Lessening rheumatoid arthritis & degenerative joint issues
  • Easing leaky gut syndrome
  • Smoothing and regulating food digestion
  • Soothing allergies & food sensitivities
  • Improving energy
  • Boosting overall health
  • Supporting glandular function
  • Stimulating liver function & detoxification
  • Tightening loose skin
  • Promoting hair, skin & nail growth
  • Supplying a large quantity of natural collagen
  • Improving quality of sleep

Gelatin has an indefinite shelf-life if uncooked and kept in an air-tight container.

The best is Great Lakes Gelatin, the highest quality and least-processed gelatin in the industry, both MSG and gluten free. Their kosher Beef Gelatin (which we carry) will mix easily in room-temperature liquids.

Gelatin can be mixed in drinks, smoothies, used to make marshmallows, gummies and, obviously, be made into natural Jell-O. Add it to a drink for an instant protein boost. It can also be used to thicken broths or soups, yogurts, kefir, or sauces.

In addition, when added to cow's milk, is of a similar composition to human breast milk. Check out this recipe for an all-natural, organic raw milk baby formula.

It can also be used to make homemade hair gel, or used as a shampoo thickener, facial cleanse, or even an egg substitute!

NOTE: gelatin should never be microwaved. As with many foods, this can alter the chemical construction of the amino acids in gelatin and make them harmful to the liver, kidneys, and other organs.

For more information on ways to cook, store, and mix gelatin in homemade dishes, this is a good place to start.

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!

The Art of Oil Pulling

oil.jpeg

WHAT IS OIL PULLING AND HOW DOES IT WORK? Oil pulling is an Indian folk remedy originating thousands of years ago. It involves swishing a tablespoon of oil in your mouth and through your teeth for ten to twenty minutes. This targets plaque by absorbing bacteria and dissolving it before it can become stuck to your teeth.

HOW TO OIL PULL (WITH COCONUT OIL)

  1. Put about a tablespoon of oil in your mouth.
  2. Swish the oil around your mouth for ten to twenty minutes, pushing and pulling it through your teeth to clean every nook and cranny.
  3. Spit the oil into a trash can. If you spit into your sink, the oil will harden and clog your pipes.

Note: coconut oil can be solid at room temperature, so you may have to wait for it to melt in your mouth before you can begin swishing.coconut oil

For best results, do this on an empty stomach.

Don’t swish too forcefully. If the muscles in your mouth become sore, lighten up for a few minutes. You may also try experimenting with less oil if the soreness continues.

It’s important to spit out the oil. You don’t want to swallow it because it is full of bacteria and nasty things.

BENEFITS OF OIL PULLING:

  • Boosts energy
  • Increases metabolism
  • Decreases joint pain
  • Decreases PMS symptoms
  • Clearer skin
  • Decreases allergies
  • Decreases headache symptoms
  • Relieves bleeding gums
  • Whitens teeth
  • Strengthens teeth, gums, and jaw
  • Prevents bad breath
  • Moisturizes lips, mouth, and throat
  • Relieves migraine headaches
  • Alleviates hormone imbalances
  • Reduces redness and swelling in bones and joints
  • May help with gastro-enteritis
  • Aids in the reduction of eczema
  • Helps support normal kidney function
  • Reduces congestion
  • Improves vision
  • Promotes normal sleep patterns
  • Relieves hangover after alcohol consumption
  • Aids in reducing discomfort
  • Helps detoxify the body
