HARD AS NAILS!
"Some folks use that nail polish, but I get hard nails without it! I have been taking calcium for so many years, but it never gave me healthy fingernails. I feel that it was due to my ability or lack there of to metabolize it. I started on the new Nature’s Sunshine LIQUID CALCIUM and within a month had a full set of pretty nails that don’t have ridges and are very hard. I sure am happy with the results, not just the hard nails, but all the good things that calcium does for my bones." RKS, Georgia
"I used LAVENDER OIL to take away my chronic muscle pain and headaches. I put it in a carrier base and rubbed it on my forehead, temples, and neck and shoulders. What a quick way to relax." D. Goodman
"I’ve been drinking LIQUID CHLOROPHYLL in my water and my husband has been teasing me and wouldn’t try any. One night he had heartburn. As we were going to bed, I told him to take some of the LIQUID CHLOROPHYLL (it has spearmint in it also). He did and slept through the night and woke up without any heartburn……well, needless to say, I’m sharing my bottle of Liquid Chlorophyll now." Jeanette L.
GOOD HEALTH FOR WHOLE FAMILY
"We are still enjoying good health, free from doctor’s visits. We continue to use herbs when symptoms arise and see great results. My children are doing well. They hardly ever get sick. I am so thankful that my sister-in-law got me to take the CLASSES you offered. It has helped me tremendously in recognizing symptoms and treating them effectively. I think it has been over 2 years since they’ve been to the doctor and I can’t remember when they’ve had over-the-counter medication." G.M.
"I took 400 mg. of CALCIUM per day along with 2 capsules of BURDOCK and 2 capsule of HYDRANGEA three times a day. It seems to be all gone!" KW
"I’ve had a history of hemorrhoids and as I began using herbs for different problems and found them to be very effective I decided to try what my herb book recommended for this problem which was WHITE OAK BARK . I took 2 capsules three times a day and found that in a week I could really notice relief. I’m been able to discontinue all those other messy products I was using and I’ve even noticed my varicose veins are much better." A.Moore
HERBAL MEDICINE CHEST
"We received an HERBAL MEDICINE CHEST for our wedding gift. I really can’t imagine getting anything better. Since Steve doesn’t have health insurance yet, I tend to go to it more often to keep him healthy and such.
We refer to it at least weekly if we get a rash from yard work, to a sore throat to a slight headache. It has been a good learning tool for me, in spite of the fact I have used herbs for so many years, I tend to forget and the quick reference really keeps me up to speed. I have discovered that you can pretty much treat any symptom or bug that comes along by referencing the card.
Steve is even more sold on the idea of alternative medicine now that he sees that just a box full of herbs can pretty much handle anything. I think it would make a great holiday gift, wedding gift and definitely a baby gift." R.S.
"We began seeing a much more rapid improvement in his recovery when we started giving my Dad the COLLOIDAL MINERALS and LIQUID CHLOROPHYLL . He was so deficient in his minerals and vitamins so this really helped!! Also, he couldn’t sleep, and taking sleeping pills wouldn’t help, so I convinced Mom to give him CALCIUM PLUS and that night he slept the best in weeks." J.S.
HOT FLASHES COMPLETELY GONE!
"I have been taking FLASH EASE for three weeks now. I started with 1/2 tablet at breakfast and another 1/2 tablet at bedtime. My flashes started to ease up a bit. When I began taking a full tablet twice a day, the hot flashes completely disappeared. My hot flashes were intense and pretty much constant. They’d hit me like a ton of bricks several times throughout the day. I couldn’t even blow-dry my hair without a major flash. However, since I’ve been on the Flash Ease (full tablet), no more hot flashes! I just had to share this with you." Joanne
"Our grandson was in the first grade LD Class on Ritalin. The doctor said you can’t get off of it. He and his parents wanted him off of it. He spent the summer at our place and we agreed to take him immediately off the Ritalin supporting his body with ATC CA (an herbal calcium, taking 2 or 3-4x/day) and Stress-J (4 or 5- 5x/day). We also eliminated all sugar. He returned to school in the fall and made A/B Honor Roll." L. Allred
"My nephew is 10 and was not doing well in school with his ‘nervous energy.’ He was having problems with uncontrolled temper even when he wasn’t provoked. Two days before Christmas break he was suspended from school. My sister decided to try NUTRI CALM . The child took it twice a day. In two days the parents could really see a difference. He even played without arguing. The first week back at school he won "Student of the Week Award." V. Franks
"I have seen X-A help men who have impotency problems because of spinal injuries." V.K.
"I began using X-A Combination when I was having problems with impotency. I received definite results with this product! Thank you Nature’s Sunshine!" Mr. L.C.
"I had a client who used UVA URSI to feed the bladder and PLS II to strengthen the muscles. She used what the label said on each product and in three days the leakage stopped." Norma Whitney
"I came in to your store to find something for my indigestion problem and decided to use PROACTAZYME . I just want to tell you that it’s wonderful! It is nice to have a pleasant reaction to eating again. Thanks for your help!" Betty R.
"My daughter-in-law had tried it all to get pregnant with the fertility clinics and had given up. I’d been using herbs for many health problems with results and finally got her to try DAMIANA which is historically used for infertility problems. She agreed to take it using 2-3x a day. After only two months she was pregnant!" P.S.
"I’d been trying to get pregnant for many years and had been to all the clinics and tried all the drugs. I’d given up years ago. I went for a consultation with Randal Watkins and began an herb and supplement program for several health problems I was having since I understood that herbs and nutrients would feed my body and balance it rather than treat the symptoms like a drug. I’d been on the program and was feeling a lot better in many areas. However, I was sure shocked to find out that I was pregnant only 3 months later. I guess balance really is the key!" M.T.
" My mother used herbs for a long time. She bought me DAMIANA to try since it had been used for infertility previously with success by some other women. I began taking it regularly and four months later I was pregnant., I couldn’t believe it! Thank you Nature’s Sunshine!" B.K.
I tried fertility specialists and drugs without success. There was nothing left. I made an appointment with Randal Watkins for other health problems never mentioning my agony. He told me what he would take for those problems and the herb and vitamin program was for the nervous and glandular systems. Three months later I called to tell him I was pregnant! He didn’t understand until I told him I’d been trying for 10 years." W.L.
"I’ve been having problems sleeping off and on for years now. There are several links with my health profile (menopause, heart trouble, rheumatism, fibromyalgia), so I just figured I could live with it. I decided to try VALERIAN ROOT which is what we often recommend to others at the store. I took 3 1/2 hour before bed. I’ve been using it for 3 weeks now and it’s been so great sleeping all night! I had forgotten what sleep was supposed to be like. I used to lie in bed for up to an hour or more not able to shut my brain off. When I woke up in the morning I felt like I’d been battling through the night….remembering bits and pieces of dreams, getting up to go to the bathroom, turning over and looking at the clock, rearranging my pillow…..I just thought I was a light sleeper. Now, I don’t remember a thing from the time I go to sleep until I get up (and I don’t have to go to the bathroom any more….guess I went just because I woke up, rather than waking up because I had to go)." D. Watkins
"I have suffered with this problem for years trying many things. I stopped in The Herbs Place to get somthing for a chest cold that I had and the girl recommended MARSHMALLOW & FENUGREEK COMBINATION . I bought it and began taking it every couple of hours to move the mucous out of my chest area. I realized the next day that my bladder problem was better. I thought it was just a rare thing, but as I continued to take the formula, I continued to get better and better. Through prayer, I ‘happened’ upon a remedy when I wasn’t even looking." M.T.
"I suffered with this problem for many years trying many different herb and supplements. I also tried DMSO treatments (which are very painful) and antibiotics for years, and neither of them worked at all. It wasn’t until I used SLIPPERY ELM and MULLEIN that I got relief. These herbs are both mucilagenous herbs which give them a coating quality while also being very soothing and healing (helps queasy stomachs also, so you can take them on an empty stomach). I discovered this combination years ago and it has continued to work, so I wanted to share hope with others. I recommended this to two friends at work who were suffering from interstitial cystitis. Both of them got complete relief in probably less than an hour." Louise C.
"I had itched all over for many years. My cousin has the same problem and has said it was hereditary. I would start itching and after scratching, I’d get whelps. After attending The Herbal Medicine Chest seminar and hearing about SUNSHINE CONCENTRATE , a natural soap/cleaner, and after having used some in the bathroom there and finding my hands so smooth, I decided to get some and try it in my shower. After only a few days, my itching stopped and hasn’t been a problem since. I mixed it 1 part to 7 parts water as directed." Jeanette L.
"I had a problem with the middle finger of my right hand. It was so painful at the top joint that I couldn’t use it. I decided to use the MSM/GLUCOSAMINE CREAM on it and after four (4) days I could tell there was a difference – it didn’t hurt so much. Now a week and a half later, I can bend it and there is no pain at all and it’s almost back to normal." S.C.
"My husband started having trouble with kidney stones and had passed three over a 3-4 month period. The pain was so bad one time he went to the hospital. They took x-rays, gave a pain shot, told him it looked like he’d pass the stone and sent him home after 12 hours. This cost $800 plus the trip to the doctor’s office was $105 with pain pills costing $1 each. After 4 months of very little help, he began taking Nature’s Sunshine JP-X , HYDRANGEA and PAU D’ARCO tea. He quit drinking coffee and tea and began drinking Herbal Beverage. We gradually started changing our diet – cutting out white flour, sugar, pork, salt and fried foods. Within 2 months he passed 3 more stones without pain. It’s now over 5 months since he started taking herbs and he hasn’t had any kidney stones." H.Hoover
" I had blood in my urine for 2 years. I used HYDRANGEA since it’s known to dissolve ‘stones.’ My next test was clear. My sister’s had the same problem and she used it with results also." I. Maher
KNEE – TORN CARTILAGE
"I had an injury to my knee and was in extreme pain. The Orthopedist diagnosed it as "torn knee cartilage." His suggestion was to go home and take NSAID’s (Tylenol, etc.) for two weeks and if there was no change, to have arthroscopic surgery. I felt that was an awfully dramatic approach and decided to use the two weeks and do something "alternative." I used TEI FU LOTION and kept it on my knee 3-5 times a day and kept my knee wrapped during the day with a slight pressure bandage. I kept it elevated as much as possible and tried to do as little walking as possible. I also began taking Nature’s Sunshine CALCIUM PLUS , 4 per night at bedtime. I noticed almost instantly that I was sleeping much better. I am three weeks out now and am walking normally and can climb steps with barely a twinge in my knee. I am pain free and really glad I didn’t succumb to knee surgery." K.S. Atlanta, GA
"I order the Tofu Moo and we love it! Now mind you, my hubby is a Green Mountain boy, born and raised on a dairy farm! He has had to give up milk because of lactose intolerance, and I never thought he would even as much as try something like Tofu Moo – much less like it! I am really impressed with the product." Marcia More
LEGS HEAVY and ACHING
"I’ve had trouble with my legs for many years. Riding in the car on short or long trips was very uncomfortable. Even sitting at my desk or lying in bed would make me want to stomp my feet to make them feel alive and stop "aching." A friend had used VARI-GONE and told me about what it did for her, so I decided to give it a try. Before I finished the first bottle, I noticed a difference – almost no aching. Before I finished the second bottle I also noticed that I had hair growing on my legs again……after more than 20 years of not having any. Guess I’ll have to remember how to shave my legs. That part is not real exciting, but my toenails are starting to look like they have life in them again instead of being yellow and dead looking." Donna
"It seemed the whole school had an infestation of lice and somebody told me about using TEA TREE OIL . I was feeling really horrible about putting all those chemicals on my children’s scalp, knowing they were being absorbed into their bloodstreams, so I decided to give it a try. It worked so much better than the drug store stuff. Tea Tree is used for so many things that I feel like I have a first aid kit in a bottle." Mary T.
LUPUS or DEGENERATIVE ARTHRITIS
"I was having pain in my hands, wrists and ankle joints. The doctor took x-rays and blood work. It was hard for the nurse to find my veins, and after trying 6 times the doctor came in and said I had small veins. The next appointment returned the test results of ‘maybe lupus or degenerative arthritis.’ The doctor scheduled more x-rays and nerve study. The pain I was having was so intense that I did not want to get up and walk. My hands and wrist would swell and hurt so badly.
One day I saw a book on the desk about herbs and found that the ‘herb angel’ (as I call her) had left it. I told her that I was having trouble with my bowels and she gave me Cascara Sagrada to try for the weekend. It worked so well so that I told her what the doctor had said and asked if she had any herbs that would help. She said it would take more than one product, but that Nature’s Sunshine products would help. I started on the following products: SC Formula , THIM-J , Yucca, Skeletal Strength , Chlorophyll, Lemon Essential Oil in Massage Oil to apply it. I started feeling better in a couple of days. When the doctor’s appointment arrived a couple of weeks later, I didn’t want to go back, so I changed my appointment. After about a month of taking the products, I returned to the doctor who drew more blood finding the vein without a problem. She stepped back and asked what I’d been doing since she and the nurse were totally amazed. She ordered more x-rays of my hands and wrists and called me in a couple of days to tell me that the blood work was all fine and there was a tremendous amount of difference in the x-rays from the previous ones. She told me to keep doing what I was doing. I feel so much better. I walk four miles a day now. Thanks to the Herbal Angel." V. A.
LYMPH NODES, Swollen
"With the cold I got I had swollen lymph nodes on my neck and a low grade fever for 2 days. I took ULTIMATE ECHINACEA lots of A and C and my normal vitamins and minerals. A day later my neck felt better." G.A.
