Omega-3 Liquid

oil-315528.jpg

landingpage_lRecent studies on omega-3 fatty acids have shown that not only are there the fatty acids DHA and EPA, but also a whole family of omega-3s, a family of 8. Each fatty acid has a unique biochemistry and role in the body, although the fatty acids work synergistically together.

Why do we need Omega-3s?

  • To support the optimal function of body tissues and organs: notably the heart, blood vessels, brain, nerves, eyes, skin and joints
  • Naturally present in mothers' milk, they are crucial to the development of infant brain and eyes.
  • They may slow aging of the brain. Older adults who supplement their diets with EPA and DHA have demonstrated greater cognitive function when compared to those who don’t
  • Omega-3 fatty acids may prevent asthmatic mothers from passing it on to their offspring

The USDA suggests all adults eat 2-3 servings of fish each week for optimal health. Unfortunately, most adults eat very little fish on a consistent basis and rarely meet this important nutritional need.

In a recent analysis of data from 2,500 children ages 1-5 years in the United States, 46% of children did not eat fish even once in the last 30 days.

People who do not consume enough fish can get the omega-3 fatty acids they need for optimal health from fish oil supplements

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.

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

Melinda E.,

I had sinus and ear problems all my life. After a month on the Resp Eleven, I was able to get off all prescription meds, and overall, the pain and pressure in my sinuses have gone.

Ivette R.,

My twelve year old son has very sensitive allergies. All his allergy tests came back positive. He’s been using medication and inhalers to cover it 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.

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:

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

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!

Eliminate Fatigue & Balance Your Hormones - Naturally!

Glandular Program1Glandular Program2  

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIES:

Marty N.,  After my Iridology appointment, Jim put me on a mild cleanse followed by the NeoLife glandular program. I lost 30 pounds in 6 months. My blood pressure decreased, and as I increased my water intake, the swelling around my ankles decreased. My lymphatic system was cleansed and my energy increased, so now I’m able to do more work around the house. I’m thrilled!

Katie D., When I was seventeen, I ate so much sugar I was to the point my doctors told me I was probably diabetic. I switched to eating ‘diet’ foods. Eighteen years later down that road, drinking multiple Diet Cokes a day, my hormones were way out of whack. I had no energy, I couldn’t sleep, my emotions were all over the place, and I had shingles on my head. After speaking with Jim, I quit drinking Diet Coke - cold turkey. I started on the Glandular Program (Formula IV, Multi-Min & NeoLife Shake) and I’ve seen a big difference in my hormone balance. I have more energy, my emotions are in check, and I can sleep! I convinced my mother-in-law to stop drinking Diet Coke, too. We’re feeling so much better!

Teresa H., I had no energy and a friend told me about Jim. Jim suggested the Glandular program. After a month I felt better than I ever had.

Salmon Oil Plus!

salmon.jpeg

Most people know they need to take a fish oil or salmon oil supplement. Not everyone knows why. The reason lies in the omega-3 fatty acid content of fish.

 

Why are omega-3 fatty acids important?

Omega-3s act as building blocks within the body. They are essential for brain health, controlling inflammation, behavioral function, heart health, and healthy growth in children.

They’re considered “essential” because the body cannot produce them. They have to be consumed daily either through food, or—as most of today’s food sources are depleted in nutrients—through supplementation.

Omega-3 supplementation has been linked to:

  • reduced risk of heart disease
  • reduced plaque build-up
  • low triglyceride levels
  • lessened arthritis or rheumatoid arthritis pain
  • fewer symptoms of depression, bipolar disorder or schizophrenia
  • eased ADHD
  • Alzheimer’s prevention
  • lowered risk of macular degeneration
  • increase calcium absorption
  • promote bone health
  • and much, much more

 

Why Salmon Oil Plus?neolife salmon

More than your ordinary, run-of-the-mill salmon oil product, this specific formula contains not only salmon, but:

  • Sardines
  • Tuna
  • Anchovies
  • And all eight omega-3 fatty acids.

On top of that, Salmon Oil Plus is formulated with only the highest level of purity. Screened for over 200 contaminants, NeoLife allows zero pollutants or contaminants in their product. The result is an ultra-pure, high-potency, broad-spectrum salmon oil product in the highly bioavailable form nature intended.

 

Salmon Oil Plus has been clinically proven to:

  • balance inflammation
  • improve the body’s omega3 index by 88%
  • improve the omega-3/omega-6 ratio by 44% in 8 weeks
  • boost the body’s immune function
  • promote healing
  • support cardiovascular and circulatory health
  • slow, prevent, or reverse the course of most diseases
  • lower the risk of pre-eclampsia during pregnancy

In infants whose mothers supplemented with Salmon Oil Plus, it was found to:

  • boost cognitive function
  • improve attention span
  • raise IQ
  • reduce the risk of childhood allergies

 

Customer Testimonies:

Gary M. I had a stroke, and discovered that I had a 100% blocked carotid artery. I had severe numbness in my right leg. My right eye was hemorrhaging from the stroke, and my vision was blurry and would sometimes black out. Eventually, my doctor had to laser my eyes. They offered no nope or answers. They told me I was a walking time bomb. I began taking twenty Salmon Oil a day. In a week, the numbness in my leg and arm disappeared, my eyesight became clearer, I had more energy, and I’m still improving.

Shane B. I was born with a bone and joint deformity. I took Salmon Oil. After one capsule I noticed an immediate improvement. Salmon Oil basically saved my life.

Jimmy A. I’ve been in martial arts since I was 3. Recently I broke my foot and ankle in a kick. I couldn’t walk for more than 30 minutes. My doctor told me to live with it. After 2 months of taking Salmon Oil, Cal-Mag, and Turmeric, I can swim, white water raft, rock climb, and do yoga.

The Lowdown on Meat - Commercial vs. Organic

hot-dog.jpg

The human body needs meat and animal products such as dairy, eggs, bone broths and gelatin. There are certain vitamins, minerals, fatty chain acids (think Omega-3s) and other nutrients that the body simply cannot glean from plant-based sources. As such, it’s important to give the body high quality, wholesome sources of these nutrients. Here, we’ll look at the differences between processed commercial and organic meats to determine which deserves that spot on your plate.cancer-blog-post

COMMERCIAL MEATS:

  • are pumped full of synthetic hormones which can cause premature puberty in young girls and feminine physical attributes in young males.
  • are high in antibiotics, attributing to the rise of so-called superbugs (antibiotic-resistant strands of common illnesses, such as the flu and the common cold)
  • contain traces of GMO feed, which cause large, debilitating tumors in mice and are believed to cause cancer and untold chronic health issues in humans
  • are often raised in inhumane living conditions. Chickens are often raised in CAFOS (concentrated animal feeding operations) where they are crammed, eight or more to a single unit, often living amidst their own filth and dead
  • cause stomach and bowel cancers, as the World Health Organization recently announced
  • are linked with a number of health issues, including but not limited to COPD, high blood pressure, heart disease, and other chronic diseases

 

WHEREAS ORGANIC MEATS (grassfed, wild-caught, pastured, etc…):

  • are non-GMO and hormone free
  • are ni-trate and ni-trite free
  • contain no antibiotics
  • are given time to roam in fields and eat grass (cows), insects (chickens), or are allowed to grow and fully mature in nature before harvesting (salmon)
  • have higher nutrient, Omega-3, vitamin and mineral contents
  • contain fewer toxins than their processed counterparts
  • tend to be leaner, less fatty and more flavorful
  • can possess up to five times the amount of CLA, a fatty acid that reduces the risk of cancer in addition to boosting the immune system and supporting weight management

Which should you be eating? We think the answer is pretty clear, but we'd love to hear your thoughts!

The Link to Better Eye Health - It's NOT What You Think!

someone1-8-12-16.jpg

When it comes to eyes, none of us are surprised to find that as we age, we deal with eye issues such as floaters, dry eyes, cataracts, macular degeneration, color blindness, or simple, deteriorating vision. While some people are more genetically prone to poorer vision, others tend to have another issue linking to their failing eyesight. That issue is poor liver health.

A key organ in the body, the liver has over 300 functions, including:

  • bile production
  • absorbing/storing vitamins & minerals
  • protein & carbohydrate metabolism
  • cleansing and detoxifying the body
  • filtering blood
  • hormone metabolism
  • regulating other bodily functions
  • emulsifying fat
  • glucose regulation
  • regulating water levels in the body
  • blood clot prevention
  • locates and disposes bacteria, parasites, fungi, and weakened blood cells
  • and more.

The main liver function that connects to eye health is detoxification. A properly-functioning liver scavenges free radicals from the blood and body, the eyes included. When the liver is undernourished or malfunctioning, these free radicals can cause eye damage (macular degeneration, floaters, cataracts, etc…), quickened aging, stilted immune function, heart issues such as heart disease or stroke, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, cancer, and other health issues.

This is why supporting the liver and supplementing with antioxidants is so important.

Antioxidants take stress off the liver by hunting down and eliminating free radicals so the liver can eliminate toxins, metals, and poisons from the body while attending to its many other  tasks, too.

However, if the liver is clogged with fat and toxins, as is the case for most Americans, it needs to be cleansed, first.

For this, we recommend Nature's Sunshine' Liver Cleanse Formula. A combination of digestive, soothing, and nourishing herbs such as Dandelion, Blessed Thistle, Burdock, Chamomile, Black Cohosh, Horsetail and more, this liver cleanse is an easy, stress-free way to effectively cleanse and unclog the liver and get your body back to functioning properly, as God intended.

To boost and protect eye health with antioxidants, we recommend:

1. NeoLife's Carotenoid Complex. Derived from the pigments of red, yellow and orange fruits and vegetables, this antioxidant blend boosts the immune system and protects the body from free radical damage. Each Carotenoid Complex capsule contains the concentrated antioxidant power of over 2.8 pounds of fruits and vegetables. Its patented formula is unparalleled in quality and standard and proven by USDA researchers to boost immune function by 37% in only 20 days. It doesn't get much better than that.

2. Nature's Sunshine Products' Perfect Eyes. A combination of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and herbs, Perfect Eyes is the second best formula for eye health. Containing the nutritional power of Beta-Carotene, Bilberry Fruit, Lutein, Zinc, Selenium, NAC, and more, this combination is sure to support, sharpen and strengthen your eyes.

We assume no responsibility if anyone decides to use this information, which is of historical value, for they are choosing to prescribe for themselves.

Flash Ease - The All-Natural, Plant-Based Hot Flash Relief You've Been Waiting For.

If you suffer from hot flashes, night sweats, or any other symptoms of menopause, you should check out Nature's Sunshine's Flash Ease! Numerous symptoms are associated with the onset of menopause, including:

rose

  • hot flashes
  • spontaneous perspiration
  • insomnia
  • anxiety
  • panic attacks
  • depression
  • mood swings
  • palpitations
  • poor memory and concentration
  • frequent urination
  • bone loss
  • pain with intercourse

Research into menopause indicates long ­term health risks including heart disease and osteoporosis. However, according to an article in American Family Physician, the most common symptom, experienced by up to 75% of menopausal women, is hot flashes—the number one reason women seek hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

Although many studies have shown HRT to be effective in relieving hot flashes, and in reducing bone loss and the risk of heart disease, the New England Journal of Medicine reports women receiving HRT have a 46% higher risk of developing breast cancer over women NOT receiving HRT, concluding that "the trade­-offs between risks and benefits should be carefully assessed." Similar findings were achieved by a study published in Lancet.

Fortunately, a number of natural plant alternatives to HRT have been shown to effectively reduce menopausal symptoms by providing compounds known as phytoestrogens. These substances function similarly to the hormone estriol, the weakest type of estrogen and the only one linked to a reduced risk of breast and endometrial cancer.

Phytoestrogens, by mimicking estriol activity, have been shown to inhibit breast cancer. A recent study in Lancet found women with a high intake of phytoestrogens exhibited a substantially reduced risk of breast cancer.

BLACK COHOSH is perhaps the most thoroughly studied of phytoestrogen-rich plants. In Germany, black cohosh has been used for decades as a German Commission-approved treatment for menopausal symptoms. In fact, a commercial extract of black cohosh is the most widely used natural alternative to HRT, with an estimated 1.5 million women worldwide having used this herbal preparation since 1956.

In 1997 alone, over 10 million monthly units were sold in Australia, Germany and the U.S. Even the American Medical Association (AMA) featured an article confirming the safety and effectiveness of black cohosh as a natural remedy for menopausal symptoms.

German researchers conducted an open study using a standardized extract of black cohosh with over 700 menopausal women. Over 80% of the women experienced definite improvements in their symptoms within 6 to 8 weeks, with most participants reporting noticeable benefits within 4 weeks. After 6 to 8 weeks, a large percentage of women achieved complete relief of menopausal symptoms which included headache, heart palpitations, hot flashes, nervousness/irritability, profuse perspiration, ringing in the ears and vertigo.

In addition to its estrogenic effects, research indicates black cohosh may help menopausal symptoms by reducing the pituitary's secretion of luteinizing hormone (LH). Elevated blood levels of LH, exhibited during menopause, are believed to contribute to the hot flashes, insomnia, and depression many women suffer.

What makes Flash Ease unique?

Each Flash ­Ease tablet contains 80mg of a concentrated extract of black cohosh root and rhizome. Flash Ease also contains dong quai root and is designed to provide a full 10 hours of time-released support.

DONG QUAI is widely recognized for its role in relieving female complaints such as menstrual irregularities and menopause. According to research published in the American Journal of Chinese Medicine, dong quai contains phytoestrogens and is believed to be effective for relieving hot flashes due to its estrogenic activity and its ability to dilate blood vessels and reduce blood pressure.

NOTE: Pregnant and lactating women, as well as those currently taking HRT, should consult their healthcare professional before using this product.

6 Reasons to Never Eat Commercial Honey Again

As more and more people make the shift away from refined sugars and simple carbs to more natural foods, it becomes almost a necessity to find a natural, healthy solution to satisfy that stubborn sweet tooth When fruit won't cut it and you just have to have some sweet, delicious, sugary-but-not-sugary goodness, honey is your greatest ally. While stevia works in drinks, smoothies, and other dishes, it tends to turn bitter when baked. Since agave syrup is 90% fructose (40% more than white sugar), honey is one of your best bets.

However, not all honey is created equally.

Commercial Honey:

  • May contain no pollen, the very thing that makes it honey. In fact anywhere from 76 - 100% of honey in restaurants and stores contains no pollen at all.
  • Has been pasteurized, reducing any remaining nutritious content
  • Is not checked or approved by the FDA, and therefore could be anything calling itself “honey”
  • Can be laced with antibiotics and/or pesticide residues
  • May simply be dyed fructose corn syrup
  • Provides no health benefits, merely empty sugars

There is no such thing as ORGANIC honey. There are no USDA standards when it comes to honey, so the organic stamp can be given to any honey whose suppliers feel it is “organic”.

On the other hand, Raw Honey:

  • Possesses antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal benefitshoney1.JPG
  • Accelerates wound healing
  • Can be used to soothe burns (including sunburns), cuts, or blemishes
  • Relieves insomnia
  • Soothes sore throats
  • Coats and may reverse ulcers
  • Ranges in color from bright gold to rich brown
  • Rich with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes & other nutrients
  • Promotes healthy digestion
  • Stimulates immune function
  • Balances blood pressure levels
  • Calms nerves
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Fights respiratory infections
  • Relieves issues such as asthma or bronchitis
  • Is easily converted into glucose in the body and used for energy
  • Boosts endurance and muscle recovery
  • Allays morning sickness or nausea

In addition to the benefits of being raw, Local Honey also:

  • Helps the body build immunity to seasonal allergies
  • Can contain powerful anti-cancer properties
  • Supports the local bee population! Who doesn't want that?

To sum up, in moderation, honey can be a wonderful treat. With so many health benefits, you can indulge yourself - guilt-free!

Pesticides & Herbicides - The Poisons Lurking in Your Food

fork.jpeg

Originally, pesticides were designed to kill or repel pests, bacteria, mold, fungus, animals, weeds, or any harmful organism. It sounds like a fair idea in principle, but what happens to the plants doused in these chemicals? Furthermore, what happens to the bodies of the people consuming these plants? The government regulates the amount of pesticides allowed in food, but nevertheless, research shows we're ingesting far more than we believe, and the side effects are adding up.

Pesticidal residues in our food consumption have been linked to:

  • ADHD or ADD in children
  • nervous system damage
  • digestive pain
  • vomiting
  • constipation or diarrhea
  • suppressed or weakened immune systems
  • reduced white blood cell count
  • increased risk of cancers, especially breast cancer
  • infertility or sterility
  • glandular issues
  • birth defects
  • brain damage
  • bronchitis, asthma, farmer's lung, or other respiratory issues
  • organ shutdown

With all these side effects stacked against them, how are pesticides still deemed "safe"?

The answer is simple: it boils down to the testing. Whereas the obvious solution seems to be to test the entire chemical package and its biological effects, most often only the active ingredient of each pesticide is tested. The additives, adjutants and solvents, for example, have their own toxic side effects and are entirely excluded.

The synergistic qualities of these chemicals are hushed-up and forgotten. The products are branded safe and sold to farms all across the country to be sprayed on all but organic crops.

Besides the testing, however, there is also the claim that pesticides break down after time. While this is true, the fact of the matter is that these chemicals are actually more dangerous once they begin to decompose. As we can see by the residues left in our foods and the serious consequences of consumption, the breakdown of pesticides promises safety, but delivers quite the opposite.

Herbicides share much the same story.

Glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto's Round-Up product, has been linked to side effects including but not limited to:

  • allergies
  • chonic gastrointestinal diseases (Crohn's disease, Celiac disease, IBS, colitis, chronic diarrhea...)
  • cancer
  • ALS
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Alzheimer's disease
  • autism
  • obesity
  • multiple sclerosis
  • depression
  • heart disease
  • severe nutritional deficiencies
  • and more.

Despite Monsanto's insistence that Round-Up is as safe to humans as over the counter pain killers like aspirin (which alone has an impressive list of side effects), glyphosate is believed to worsen already existing diseases. It actively targets and destroys beneficial gut flora, necessary for immune health, organ metabolism, nutrient absorption, carbohydrate utilization, and allergy prevention, to name a few.

Continued usage and consumption of glyphosate causes pathogenic overgrowth and toxicity in the intestines, which will then  affect the rest of the body, too.

Glyphosate has also been shown to remain in foods and in human bodies after consumption, despite Monsanto's insistence of the chemical's biodegradability. An independent study in Iowa of both farming and non-farming families found glyphosate in the urine of 80% of children tested, and in Europe, forty-four percent of people on average from a range of nearly twenty countries tested positive for glyphosate residues. Countries such as Germany,  Great Britain, and the Netherlands tested positive from sixty-three to seventy-percent of their population. In Malta, ninety-percent of people tested were found with glyphosate residues in their bodies.

It's no wonder several countries in Europe - eighteen countries, to be exact - have banned pesticide usage in their crops. Several countries, such as the Netherlands and France, are also planning to remove glyphosate from their crops beginning in 2016. In fact, Monsanto's poster child, Round-Up, is already being removed from shelves in France, no longer available for purchase. Brazil is moving in a similar direction.

How can you rid your system of glyphosate residues?

There are several detoxes and cleanses to help the body clear out any heavy metals or toxic residues in the body.

  1. Don Lawson's General Body Cleanse. This cleanse is a deep-clean, effective yet safe way to clear metals, toxins and poisons out of your body. Consisting of three NeoLife products taken on a strict regime for a month, this cleanse will flush your system and energize your body, all in a short 30-day span. This cleanse is traditionally done once annually.
  2. Heavy Metal Detox. A Nature's Sunshine product, this cleanse is a combination of several traditional herbs, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals to pull heavy metals out without any extra hassle.
  3. Liver Cleanse. An organ with over five hundred sixty functions, the liver aids cleansing and detoxification in the body. There are two cleanses for the liver by Nature's Sunshine, and both are excellent. The Liver Cleanse Formula is gentle, nourishing and supportive of the liver. This program is safe and effective, and usually lasts three months, or three bottles. The Tiao He Cleanse is a stronger and typically faster. Designed as a fifteen-day cleanse, most users find they need to take more than one box.

How can you avoid or limit your consumption of pesticides and herbicides in future?

The simple answer is to eat organic whole foods. That's truly the only way to ensure you're getting clean, green food without exposure to toxic chemicals.

However, if you can't afford to eat wholly organic, as the majority of American's can't, most health professionals recommend thoroughly washing foods and sticking to the "dirty dozen and clean fifteen" list - twelve foods that are toxic if not organic, and fifteen foods that are fine to eat commercially-grown.
