"My little girl began having daily seizures at 15 months old after immunization shots. When she was 4 years old I decided to try herbs. I began giving her VALERIAN and LOBELIA . Her seizures stopped and have not returned. It’s been 8 months!" M.A.

" My husband had been on Dilantin for many years having had seizures since he was a child. He was really concerned about the side effects and decided to try something herbally to get off the medication. He used LOBELIA capsules daily as a maintenance program and used LOBELIA ESSENCE if he felt the symptoms of a seizure coming on. The extract could be placed under the tongue and absorbed into the blood quickly. It has done a wonderful job for him and he’s been off the medication for several years now and hasn’t had a problem. I’m told that people who don’t need Lobelia will throw it up because it acts as an emetic. His body obviously needed a lot of it because this has never happened to him." D.S.

"My child was six years old and began having "skin problems." We had a neighbor who was a dermatologist so I took him down there and he said it was shingles. I’d heard nightmare stories about that and he did inform me that since he was so young and had them, he would have problems with them for the rest of his life. I was already familiar with what herbs could do so he began taking HSN-W to feed the skin, Stress-J and NUTRI CALM for the nerves and VS-C to kill the herpes virus. In two weeks it was totally cleared up and it’s been four years now and he’s never had another problem. I’m thankful for what the herbs are able to do for the body." K.J.

E.C. has Incomplete Herpes Complex, which falls under the category of a shingles-type problem. Frequently she breaks out in a rash on her hip and it remains there for several days to a week. When she got VS-C for her cats F.I.V. she decided to use the formula herself also. When she had another flare up of her herpes problem she started taking VS-C and it lasted one day and was gone. Even her husband was impressed. To my knowledge she hasn’t had any other flare ups since.

"I had an unexpected sinus/allergy attack. It began over the weekend with irritated sinuses and scratchy throat. It escalated on Monday and I took a Claritin, which did nothing to relieve my symptoms. While at work, my HistaBlock arrived. I took two with lunch and two with dinner. I stayed home on Tuesday and took two with each meal. This morning, I’m feeling much better. My symptoms have disappeared." Joanne

"I’ve had allergies all my life since elementary school. I used Bayer Aspirin then on a daily basis for sinus infections. As an adult I tried allergy shots and antibiotics and nothing helped. I ended up in the hospital when the infections advanced to the ears, throat and lungs. I stopped in "The Herbs Place" two years ago and began using ECHINACEA and FENUGREEK & THYME . It takes a while to get into your system and begin to correct things, but I haven’t had a problem for the two years I’ve been using this program. I had a nodule on my tonsil that was just ‘always there’ and it has gone away also. I’m very excited about herbs." S. Godwin

"I used to have sinus headaches regularly. I began using FENUGREEK & THYME and I don’t have a problem any more. As soon as I feel the pressure building, I begin the herbs every hour and I’m completely relieved within a few hours." M. Moffett

"My son had a sinus infection and a severe headache. I gave him two SINUS SUPPORT and two FENUGREEK & THYME every three hours. The headache stopped and in 3-4 days the infection was completely gone." B.R.

"My son’s sinus problems have cleared up using SINUS SUPPORT and ALJ ." D. Hines

"I have had sinus problems for years and began using SINUS SUPPORT . It has stopped the coughing and ‘harking’ I did throughout the day." J.A.

"The HistaBlock works WONDERS! I used the HistaBlock during all three meals (instead of two as they suggested) and today, I feel great! I love it!" Joanne

"My husband, Dave, has been using the ALJ for his sinuses for about a week. He told me that since he’s been taking the ALJ , he’s been able to breathe at night and, therefore, get a good night’s sleep. It seems to have dried up the excessive mucous in his sinuses. I was so thrilled to hear this!" J.N.

"Floyd went to the Dr. because he had a suspicious growth on his ear. The Dr. took one look at it and said "BASAL CELL CARCINOMA" and referred him to another Dr. who charged $106 to refer him to a plastic surgeon who said "surgery and skin graft." Every one we saw said "pretty sure Basal Cell Carcinoma," but would need test to prove it, yet nobody did a biopsy. The plastic surgeon said he had to get a physical before he would touch him. It took 2 weeks to get a physical, and another week to get the results, so in that time, I took matters into my own hands. I started bathing that skin cancer with peroxide, then swabbing it good with fresh ALOE VERA juice. I mixed GARLIC and SLIPPERY ELM bark together and coated it with that. I did this about 4 times a day, and pretty soon the thing started to turn brown like it was dying. After a couple of weeks it started to turn loose on the top side and a crevice kept getting larger until after 3 weeks it dried up to the size of a bb and fell off. It is as hard as can be – I still have it. His ear is beautiful, has a small scab about the size of a match stem. I continue to put my "concoction" on it just in case there is any of it left. Nothing is brown, it is perfectly normal in color." Shirley

"I am fair skinned and have always used sunscreen and avoided the direct sun as much as possible….about 4 months ago a "suspicious" spot showed up on my forehead…it had the look of a pimple that would not heal, which is the first clue that an abnormality may be skin cancer according to what the doctor told me. Instead of getting a biopsy (yuk!) I asked a good friend to believe with me about it going away. I decided to use Pau d’Arco lotion on it whenever I could remember which usually was about once or twice a day/every other day for about two weeks. I noticed one day that it had turned to a hard lump and it itched. I couldn’t help scratching it and it opened up and I pulled out a white stringy type piece of tissue….it bled slightly and went flat immediately. It seemed to heal instantly, never scabbed over, but the skin grew back within an hour or so. I was so amazed that I kept "feeling for it" for a week to see if it would come back. It is gone, I don’t have an "abnormality" as the doc called it and I believe it was due to the Pau d’Arco and my friend "believing" with me for it to be removed." -Robin in Atlanta

"As soon as I began to go through menopause it seemed my skin began to "die." It began looking "weathered" and didn’t have any elasticity in it any more. At a lecture I was told you could find out if you needed antioxidants by grabbing a piece of skin on the top of your hand with two fingers from your opposite hand, and if it popped right back down, you didn’t need antioxidants. If it kinda crawled back down, you need antioxidants. Mine took its good old time going down and I was already using Vitamins A, C and E, so I was surprised. I decided to begin taking HI-POTENCY GRAPINE so I could saturate myself with the beneficial properties. I began slow taking one a day for a week and then going up to two a day. After a couple of months on it, I’ve noticed that the skin on my legs and arms are beginning to look new again. My face had begun to have large pores and I’ve never had oily skin. The pores are also beginning to shrink and look smooth again. I’m really excited about the outward benefits of taking Grapine , but I’m sure it’s doing many more exciting things on the inside too." Donna

"I am enjoying the Bee Pollen . It seems to be helping my almost 48 year old skin to look 20 years younger." Maryann S.

"Just wanted to let you know that after one day of taking Valerian Root capsules there was enough of a change in our sleep patterns to convince us to continue the Valerian Root . We took one at each meal and then noticed that our sleep patterns had changed. We only got up once during the night to go the the restroom instead of the regular 5 trips apiece! The next day we took one at lunch and 2 at night before bed. Again, we slept more rested, my husband did not snore, and I got up only once and my husband not at all. Just wanted to say thank you!" J.C. from Texas

"I closed the motor home door on my thumb and it was hurting so bad on the way home. I carry a small bottle of the TEI FU OIL with me all the time, so I put a few drops on my thumb and rubbed it in for a minute and it quit hurting and hasn’t hurt since and isn’t even sore. There’s only a very small blue spot under my nail." Virginia D.

"I began taking LOBELIA and NUTRI CALM and I’m licking the smoking habit. When I used to try to stop smoking, I’d put on weight. Not this time, I lost 2 pounds the first week." C.A.

"I heard an herbalist in Ohio say that the craving for tobacco was a nutrient deficiency of Vitamin B3 or Niacin. The molecules were very similar: nicotine and nicotinic acid. I began Nature’s Sunshine’s NIACIN and B COMPLEX to balance the B vitamins. I used 1 of each three times a day. I noticed I was feeling much calmer. I also used LOBELIA-ST. JOHN’S WORT to begin detoxifying my body from the damage I had done by smoking. It really did take the craving away and I was able to quit." Jim W.

"A customer got LOBELIA-ST. JOHN’S WORT 2 weeks ago and reports he hasn’t smoked since. He’d tried patches and gum and never had 24 hours of success. He used it a lot the first day, then 3-4x/day for a few days and then per label instructions. He says, "It’s a whole lot cheaper and works 1,000 times better than patches or gum." Reported by Donna Waktins

This is an essential oil "recipe" to quit smoking:
10 drops thyme , 10 drops ylang ylang , 10 drops pine

Mix in with a bit of massage oil and apply to body or enjoy the smell. One person who quit smoking with this essential oil formula and using LOBELIA-ST. JOHN’S WORT herbal combination said that the smell of this combination made his mouth water like a cigarette does and was very satisfying to him. Reported by Louise Allred

"We have an old shower and there was a smell that I just couldn’t get rid of no matter what I tried. I even used TEA TREE OIL and Pine Oil without much success. I then tried using LEMON OIL along with the Baking Soda I had tried and it was a perfect match! I now put 3-4 T. of baking soda on the ledge along with 10 drops of Lemon Oil and dip in there as I wash the shower. Keeps the odor away till I clean again about a week or so later. Finally a solution and naturally, of course!" Susan C.

"Mike used the PRIME FORM RECOVERY during a triathelon and he finished the race with a personal best! While all the other athletes (who were drinking Gatorade and eating power bars and gels) were dead on the ground with no energy, Mike was walking around like nothing had occurred but a stroll in the park!! We also gave some to friends who where first time triathletes. They said that they would not have finished the race if it hadn’t been for the Recovery drink. I hesitate to share this because I really feel this drink is a secret weapon in having a better race than the other athletes." J.S.

"When I get something in my flesh that needs to come out, I put a glob of BLACK OINTMENT on there and put a bandage over it. It’s amazing how it will draw the offender out so it can easily be removed. It also removes the soresness and and irritation from the offending item." R.S.

"I got up running from the couch and caught my little toe under a chair leg and sprained it and the outside portion of my foot really bad. I didn’t have the usual things I’d take, so I took TEI FU LOTION and covered the side of my foot and toes with it. It immediately helped the horrible pain. I put it on hourly until bedtime a few hours later and even woke up during the night and applied more. The next two days I stayed off it as much as I could. Half my foot was purple and red, but it never swelled and I could walk on it. This was an exciting discovery about Tei Fu Lotion!" Donna Watkins

"On January 25, 1998, I twisted my ankle and ended up with a cast when the Dr. said I’d sprained ligaments and tendons and had a chipped fracture. I was informed I’d have it on for 6 weeks. I began taking Bone/Skin Poultice and PLS II and praying for healing. I went back on February 10 (16 days later) for my check-up. They removed the cast to take x-rays and I walked to the room. Can you believe they said I didn’t need the cast back on! Wow! I was so excited. I continued to take the herbs knowing I would need support for the rest of the healing process. Herbs Really Work!" S. O’Brien

"We use PRIME FORM RECOVERY when someone in the family has been sick with a stomach virus. It really helps us to bounce back quickly by replacing the electrolytes." J.S.

"I woke up one day with an extremely infected, bleeding, loose tooth. The dentist said I had periodontal disease and needed immediate gum surgery or I’d lose all my teeth. I read my herb book and found herbs used for this were GOLDENSEAL, WHITE OAK BARK and BLACK WALNUT (restores tooth enamel). I used a capsule of Goldenseal in my Water Pik every night to get it under my gum. Then I moistened my toothbrush and put Black Walnut on it to brush. After rinsing I brushed with White Oak Bark. I also took 2 capsules of each herb 2x a day. This was 7 years ago. I have healthy gums and teeth and have never had surgery." Irene R. Note: We’ve had success using these herbs as a tea swished around for several minutes 3x/day and then swallowed. Empty 1 capsule Goldenseal and two each of White Oak Bark and Black Walnut into a cup. Pour one cup boiling water over and allow to cool. Swish and swallow 3-4 times daily. This is a bit simpler than the dedicated approach Irene took.

"I’ve been working on gaining back my health with the wonderful products you sell. When I first purchased your products, I was fighting a serious bacterial infection in my gums. My goal was to prepare my oral health to be able to handle a root canal. The products have been a success. I used the White Willow Bark and ASP II for pain. The other products I’ve been using are: Spirulina, Golden Seal, Black Walnut, B Complex, BP-X, and Co-Enzyme Q10 . I had my teeth cleaned today and had a good report from the hygienist. Thanks for carrying such wonderful products. God Bless You Both." Mary Ann

"I had read somewhere that Tea Tree Oil was helpful when removing ticks. Stephanie, our youngest, has had three ticks so far. All three times, I’ve put some Tea Tree Oil on the tick and waited until the tick let go so I could flush it down the toilet. It worked everytime! It takes about 30 seconds but I like the fact that I don’t have to worry about getting "all of it out". It must be very toxic to them. I love it!" Giselle

"While I was visiting my grandmother, she told me she was having problems urinating. She said it had been since the day before that she had passed urine even after drinking water. I was alarmed that she didn’t say anything before to someone. She knew I was using natural remedies and asked if I knew of something she could use. I had PARSLEY at the house and took her some. She took it and within two hours she was able to pass the urine. She’s on so much medication, it was nice to find a natural alternative." Giselle A.

"Robert, my husband, was playing in the backyard with the kids when he stepped on a red wasp and was stung. It was really bothering him, and he asked me what he could take. His foot was swelling and he began to feel nauseous. I wasn’t sure so we called my sister-in-law who told us he could put 5 drops of BLACK WALNUT EXTRACT under his tongue and then repeat in 25 minutes. We could hardly believe the results. They were almost immediate. His foot quit swelling and went back to normal and he felt fine. Thanks so much for all that you do. I continue to learn from your newsletter and I visit your website frequently." G.M.

"I began the first week of my weight-loss program with NATURE’S CLEANSE . It’s a great start for any diet plan, as it helps rid the body of toxins. The following six weeks I took FEN CHI and FAT GRABBERS . Fen Chi really curbs my appetite and is a tremendous help for my cravings. "I have lost a total of 38 pounds, 4 dress sizes, and 20 inches. I feel great! My friends call me "skinny." People tell me how good I look, then ask me how I do it. That provides me the opportunity to share my success story and help somebody else do the same." L.S.

"The weight-loss is going very well. My appetite is curbed. I don’t feel like snacking as much as I used to. And I FEEL LIGHTER. I know I’ve lost weight. My size 18 jeans are swimming on me and my skirts fit comfortably. My goal is to get back down to a size 12 (like I was when I got married). I know I’m well on my way. I’ve been using the METABOMAX for breakfast and lunch and the SF for dinner. Then I take two more SF tablets before going to bed. I figure it might burn fat while I sleep. Anyway, it’s working really well. I’m very excited. I’ve been overweight for five years now. I think that the herbs I’m taking is straightening out my system and also improving my thyroid function, which may also explain for the weight loss. All I know for sure is that Nature’s Sunshine is the best thing that has ever happened to me with regards to my health! Thank you so much!" J.N.

"My husband and I started taking the FEN CHI and the FAT GRABBERS on Thursday the 29th of April and as of this morning, the 3rd of May he has lost 7 pounds and I have lost 6. They seem to be working!" BJ

"I started taking the FEN CHI on Monday and today is Thursday. Unless my scales are wrong I have dropped 12 pounds. I even quit smoking on Monday and usually all you want to do when you quit smoking is eat. I hope this continues. The one thing that I like about the FEN CHI is that it keeps you from feeling hungry. You can eat litely and still feel full." Betty

"I just got back from a neighbors house. She had ordered the Chinese FEN CHI from me. She told me her husband wants to sign up with Nature’s Sunshine, so I dropped off an application. Her husband said that he has been taking the Fen Chi for himself and has noticed such a difference in his energy level. He mentioned it to people he works with and they wanted to try it, so he shared with them and they love it. He said some of the guys work 50+ days straight without any time off and they need something for energy. He said they feel "alive" again!" L.C.

"I started the NATURE’S THERMO TRIM weight-loss program weighing in at 184 pounds. Now that I have completed two months of Thermo-Trim with one week of cleansing in between, I am proud to say I now weigh 164 pounds. I have lost 20 pounds and dropped two complete dress sizes – the inches have just disappeared. I feel great! I confess that I didn’t work out or change my eating habits. The ingredients in this program work wonders for suppressing the appetite. When I did eat I wasn’t nearly as hungry as I anticipated." Wendy

"I tipped the scale at 275 pounds to go along with my 48-inch waist. Because my stomach was often upset, I ate antacids like they were candy. I looked and felt terrible. Then my daughter asked if I had heard of Nature’s Sunshine Products (NSP). She told me she had lost 27 pounds and was still losing. I decided to give it a try. I started with FEN-CHI , FAT GRABBERS , LBS II and COLLATRIM LIQUID . I lost 7 pounds immediately and gained a tremendous amount of motivation. To date, I have lost 40 pounds and my choleserol level is down to a healthy 175. My waist is down to 40 inches, and I haven’t taken an antacid tablet since I started on the NSP weight-loss program. I never feel hungry while following the program, nor do I count calories. In fact, once a week I treat myself to a pizza, but then I follow up by sticking to my eating plan. I eat a healthy amount of fruit and vegetables. I have a lot of energy and feel great about myself. My friends all say I look wonderful. I’ve regained my self-respect!" H.W.

"I began the first week of my weight-loss program with NATURE’S CLEANSE . A cleanse is a great start for any diet plan, as it helps rid the body of toxins. The following six weeks I took FEN-CHI and FAT GRABBERS . Fen Chi really curbs my appetite and is a tremendous help for my cravings. I have lost a total of 38 pounds, 4 dress sizes, and 20 inches. I feel great! My friends call me "skinny." People tell me how good I look, then ask me how I do it. That provides me the opportunity to share my success story and help somebody else do the same." L.S.

"I began taking FEN CHI , FAT GRABBERS , SUPER SUPPLEMENTAL Vitamins and Minerals, and COLLATRIM (all of these products are part of the Nature’s THERMO-TRIM program). I experienced a steady loss of about 3-5 pounds per week. Fen Chi made me feel more energized and allowed me to feel satisfied eating less. During the program, I broke my foot which put me in a wheelchair and then a cast for three months which meant I wasn’t able to exercise, yet I continued losing weight because the supplements worked." G.S.

"I’ve been using the NATURE’S SYNER-SLIM program and have lost 35 pounds and 21 inches in about four months. I lost 8 inches off my waist and have dropped three dress sizes. On other diets, I always felt like I was starving. On Syner-Slim, I haven’t been hungry. I try to eat about 1,500 calories a day, but it’s easy to do when I eat healthy, balanced meals. I also walk four miles three times a week. I’m really happy with this program. It’s been easier to lose weight than I ever expected. I used to have a closet full of clothes that didn’t fit me. Now I’m wearing them again and getting lots of compliments." S.N.

"I began using SF , ALL CELL DETOX , GlanDiet, FAT GRABBERS , and Chinese FEN-CHI . When the NATURE’S SYNER-SLIM was announced, I switched to it since it had all the products in convenient packages and they take up very little space when I travel. I’m watching my fat intake, reading labels, eating smaller portions, and drinking lots of water. I try to eat a salad every day and get exercise when I can. The products keep my metabolism going and I feel good. I’ve been able to wear clothes I haven’t been able to wear. Before it was difficult to bend down and pick something up off the floor. Now my endurance is much better. I am encouraged to go on!" T.B.

"I started walking in early July to help relieve stress and I wanted to lose the 15 pounds I gained in the past 2 years. By the end of July I was running part of the 2 mile route and eventually worked up to running over 2 miles 4-5 days a week. I certainly was feeling better and even noticed some improvements in the way my clothes fit, but the old scale hadn’t budged a pound. I continued to exercise and I ran my first 5K in October. It was about that time that I read about 7-KETO . I started taking it as recommended – just 1 a day. I still exercise, but it is much harder since the weather is colder and school activities take away my available time. I am lucky to run twice a week. The good news is that I have almost finished my second bottle of 7-Keto and I have lost 12 pounds. I have not changed my (horrible) eating habits , although there are many times that I am not hungry, and I try not to eat "just because." I am thrilled with the results! Pants that were almost "too little" now need a belt to hold them up! This has been the easiest weight loss I have ever experienced." Valerie A.

"Since I started on FEN CHI I have lost about 50+/- pounds (I don’t know for sure since I don’t really know what I weighed when I started, but the 50 pound figure is in the ball park). Along with takingNature’s Sunshine Vitamin and Mineral Supplements and CALCIUM and using the FAT GRABBERS , I feel great, and am starting to look that way too! I have gone from a 26" waist to a 20" waist. I have a long way to go yet, but this is a good start. I have so much more energy, and my knees and back don’t bother me nearly as much. I am exercising and playing golf with my hubby now, something I couldn’t do before. As I turned 50 I decided I was sick and tired of being sick and tired!! I am on the road to recovery healthwise and spiritually as well (much of that due to the A More Excellent Way Book )." MB

"I battled with recurring infections and yeast problems and the antibiotics didn’t even help. I grew up in the "hospital environment" since both my parents are medical technologists, but nothing was working. A nurse suggested I try a natural approach and I didn’t even know what she was talking about. I read a few books and decided to try GARLIC, VITAMIN C, and ACIDOPHILUS . To my amazement, it worked! When I had another problem, I stopped into "The Herbs Place" and bought some ECHINACEA to use as a natural antibiotic. It worked! I was hooked! We haven’t used antibiotics since the summer of 1997. I’ve built an Herbal Medicine Chest so I can handle problems as soon as they arise. I have 3 children and need to be prepared." Giselle

MENOPAUSE, Beginning
"I’m in the beginning stages of menopause and have been taking FEMALE COMFORT , 4 capsules a day and during the rougher times 6 a day. It keeps me on an even keel with a much better frame of mind and has shortened the duration of my cycles. I noticed I haven’t had the headaches either. My husband has noticed I’m much calmer on it. I’ll be keeping it around for a while I think!!" D.H.

No Period – "My daughter hadn’t had a menstrual period for a year. She began taking BLACK CURRANT OIL to balance the glandular system and after 2-3 weeks, she began her period." J.Holt

Severe Cramps – "I had severe cramps and used 4 MAGNESIUM in the herbal base and 6 CHAMOMILE . I did the same in an hour and was fine till morning when I did the same and had the same results." Marie

Excessive Bleeding – "I met a friend for lunch and we talked about "everything" …….one of the things she told me was that the RED RASPBERRY capsules I gave her were wonderful! She had problems with excessive bleeding and lack of energy the first two days of her period. Her doctor gave her iron supplements to compensate for the monthly loss of blood. I had experienced the excessive bleeding after having a child and took care of it with the Red Raspberry. I had a bottle left over, so I gave it to her to try and today she said it was wonderful! The bleeding had been more reasonable and she was able to go about her business as usual. She said it was GREAT! Isn’t that awesome? I love being able to help others……especially when it’s so simple! Praise God!" G.A.

"I experienced a real lift with Nature’s Sunshine’s SAM-e . I had started to spiral downward mentally, and in four days the SAM-e pulled me out of it. I was also experiencing difficulty sleeping at night. I often got only four hours of sleep. After being on SAM-e for two weeks, I could sleep from 11 PM to 8 AM. My body was able to catch up on the sleep it had missed. Now I get a restful sleep each night. I’m not going to stop taking this stuff." Tom M. (NSP Manager Extra, August 2000)

"I have suffered from migraines since I was 13. I get the "classic" type with auras, foggy vision, neon geometric shapes in my field of vision, nausea, and acute sensitivity to light and sound. I stumbled onto the solution when I took 4 Stress-J for a tension headache. Within an hour it was gone. So, at the first sign of my next migraine, which was 8 a.m. one morning, I took 4 Stress-J , 2 FEVERFEW and 2 GINGER (for the nausea) and laid back down for about an hour until the symptoms were gone. About three hours later I took the same and continued to repeat this every 3 hours till bed. The migraine never returned. I’ve been suffering from migraines for 20 years and now I control them instead of them controlling me." Cheri A.

"I want to praise your product, TOFU MOO . My husband and I have decided to eliminate dairy products from our diet. Neither of us can properly digest them and we are also very concerned with the routine growth hormone supplementation and antibiotic use by the dairy industry. We have tried several soy and rice-based milk substitutes before, including Rice Dream, Soy Dream, Naturasoy, Vitasoy, Edensoy, and Westbrae. All of them were marginally acceptable, but we were not pleased with any one product overall. They were either too watery, too "beany"-tasting, too gray-looking, or too oily. The Tofu Moo is the closest to real milk we have found. It is creamy, white, and delicious. We have used it in coffee, on cereal, in home baked blueberry muffins, to make a fruit smoothie, and to make a vegetable curry dish. In every case, we used it exactly as we would milk, with delicious results. Thank you so much for this product –we love it! Now, we can have a good tasting milk substitute that allows us to keep to our principles of deleting dairy products from our diets while still enjoying the taste of "real milk." MJ

"Some miscarriages are caused by women not having enough hormones. The progesterone hormone helps the uterus prepare for a pregnancy so it can carry a baby. X-A combination has been used to help that situation." Donna Watkins

"My husband had a "black velvet pimple", as big as a nickel for 10 years. It got so nasty looking, I was very worried. The doctor said, "If it doesn’t bother you, don’t bother it." I begged my husband to rub PAU D’ARCO LOTION on it 3-4 tims a day or more. He did and took PAU D’ARCO capsules internally as well for a week, but used the lotion continually on the black thing. In 3 months time, it was gone and no sign of it ever being there. Thank the Lord!" JT

"In regards to the moles and BLACK OINTMENT , it did take a while, and at first, it didn’t seem to be doing anything. I had read that people with skin tags had used it to remove them, so I started putting it on my moles. There really wasn’t much pain, and when they finally fell off, I didn’t realize it til looking in the mirror one morning. I noticed during the process, that each one I applied it to started to shrink. Then off they came! None that I applied it to have returned, and it’s been a while since I used this. It does require consistent application however, meaning I used it morning & night." Yna

I want to give you a testimony about BLACK OINTMENT . I have applied it (twice a day) to some raised moles and other moles and some of them have fallen off and the others are shrinking. It is amazing!! It also heals scars, burns, cuts, and everything very quickly!! Thank you Lord for your wonderful healing!! T eresa

"My husband has always had a unique metabolism, and sometimes this affects his moods. I gave hima bottle of Nature’s Sunshine’s SAM-e , and an hour after taking his very first capsules, he started feeling the effects. His energy level rose right away and he was feeling better in no time. I could hardly believe it. When the bottle was empty, he asked for more and got after me because we were out. I guess it’s time to order more SAM-e! " L. Clark

"My son pulled a muscle in his knee playing basketball in school. And every night I have to rub on the TEI FU OIL . He says it really makes it feel a lot better and that he can really tell a difference. Anyone with a teenager can have a hard time finding them to agree on anything, but Kyle really likes the product! I think my family is hooked on Nature’s Sunshine!" L. Calhoun

"I began putting TEA TREE OIL on my nails and the fungus around my cuticles died over night." Kellie

"Our son was 14 when he took a skateboard spill. He came flying down our street and took a spill in front of the new neighbor’s. The daughter was outside and ran in for help since Ben seemed knocked out and bleeding pretty heavily from a deep cut on his forehead. The mother took a towel and got him up and walked him to our house. We were soon to find out that she was a nurse. She asked him if he’d ever had stitches because he was going to need them on this cut. His answer was, "No, ma’am, my Mom doesn’t do stitches, we use herb salve." Well, for new neighbors, I bet that gave them something to discuss over dinner that night.

When she got him to the door he had blood from head to toe and the towel was covered with it too. I thanked her and took him inside to get the bleeding stopped with Capsicum and Goldenseal on it. Randal checked his eyes to see if there was a concussion. We made sure he could stand up okay and got him into the shower to get the blood off so we could see all the damage. "After he was cleaned up we used Golden Salve on all the cuts and bandaged the area on his forehead. I had thrown the towel into the wash while Ben was showering and, of course, with Sunshine Concentrate , all the blood came out. I waited until 24 hours after the accident had occurred and sent Ben down with the clean towel and with his bandage removed and hair combed back! After all, we had to redeem ourselves so these new neighbors wouldn’t think they moved in next to the Adams Family.

"She couldn’t believe how much the wound had healed. Needless to say, over time she became a user of herbs. Five (5) days later the wound was healed with a scar looking like a hairline scratch. Golden Salve has tissue regenerating herbs in it and it does a great job of healing and since it also has herbs with antibiotic properties, it keeps the wound from getting infected." Donna Watkins

"I’d been having a problem with a dwindling milk supply from the time my daughter was 4 months old. She was never satisfied. I purchased some MARSHMALLOW root (the herb!) to see if it would help when she was 6 months old. At first I took 1 capsule 3 times daily and it really helped. Every time she would nurse she would be more and more satisfied. Then at some point I slacked off. When she began not being satisfied again, I realized I hadn’t taken it for awhile. I started taking 2 capsules 2 times daily and noticed a big difference in how long she nursed and that she was satisfied when finished and not screaming for more food. Now I take 2 a day and sometimes 4 if I haven’t had a very good day nutritionally. I can always tell when I skip a day. Thank you for giving me the suggestion!" Tammy


"I began having anxiety attacks six months ago and lots of muscle tension. Two months ago I began taking Nature’s Sunshine’s KAVA KAVA Concentrate. It began helping immediately. I take two a day. I was so thrilled to have an answer to the problem. Then I decided to try other brands for a better price, but they didn’t have the same effect, so I’m back now for more of the Nature’s Sunshine Kava Kava." L.B.

"I would like to tell you a story that I think should be passed along to your other customers. My nephew, who is 3 years old, was playing outside in some standing water. He developed a swollen jaw and my sister took him to the doctor. He informed them that he had parasites in his jaw and gave him some antibiotics which did no good at all. I had some BLACK WALNUT EXTRACT and had them put a few drops in some juice so he would drink it. In two days his jaw was completely down and he was fine. This is great for any kind of parasite infestation. Just wanted to pass this on. Thanks!" Retha A.

"We took our kids camping this past weekend and of course I had my handy little bottle of TEA TREE OIL (I love this stuff). We were camping and when we were taking our tent down, we found we had planted one of our spikes right into a sappy pine root. My husband had sap all over his hand. Well, anyone whoever gets that pine sap on themselves knows it’s very hard to get off. I threw the bottle of TEA TREE OIL to my husband and said, "Try this it works on everything else!" Guess what? He rubbed it into his hands, rinsed with water, and it was gone! So, my advice is, "Don’t leave home without it!" Pam in Atlanta

"My son had pink eye and was sent home from school. I used EW to make an eyewash and dropped it in both eyes on the hour. It only burned a little on the infected one. He only missed one more day of school and was back. It worked so much faster than what I’d used on my daughter before." T.U.

"I had a planter’s wart on the bottom of my left foot that just would not go away. Instead of going to the dermatologist for an acid treatment, my wife wanted to try something "alternative." She put a drop of Nature’s Sunshine TEA TREE OIL on the wart and then followed it up with a dab of Nature’s Sunshine BLACK OINTMENT and then we put a waterproof Band-Aid on it to keep all the "alternative medicine" on it. We did it morning and night, and by the second night (after three treatments), the wart was flat and there was a "divot" in the middle where it looked as if the seed had drawn itself out." Steve

"About four months ago my doctor prescribed Prozac for treating my PMS symptoms (i.e., mood swings, teary days, frustration). I was told it would take a month or two for the medicine to be most effective in my system. Although hesitant, I filled the prescription and began the "treatment." After the first couple months I began feeling sleepy and tired most of the afternoon. Although the PMS symptoms seems a bit better, the constant sleepy and tired feeling seemed to outweigh anything positive about the treatment. I began thinking about alternatives. One afternoon, while waiting on a friend for lunch, I just happened to be parked in front of "The Herbs Place." I went inside and spoke with Randal about my situation. I then purchased a sample pack of the LOBELIA and ST JOHN’S WORT . After consulting my pharmacist about quitting the Prozac, I waited a week for the prescription medicine to clear out of my system and began the Lobelia/St Johns Wort. Since I have been using the St. John’s Wort , I seem to have more energy, can stay awake past 8:30 in the evening, and just feel so much better. The best part is, I am taking something natural for my symptoms now and have not felt better in months." Your friend in health

"I am now eight months pregnant with our third child, and we are planning our first home birth with a traditional midwife who not only is a Spirit-filled Christian but also believes in using herbs. This child took us over a year to conceive. I was having some female problems that weren’t necessarily diagnosed, but I knew that something wasn’t right. I used Damiana at first and then switched to FEMALE COMFORT . I won’t give the herbs full credit because I believe that God was in control of this conception, but the herbs certainly helped get my body in proper working order for a baby." G.M.

"A friend of mine in Brooklyn, NY, had been bothered with prostate problems for years. His problem started to take a turn for the worse and his doctor recommended immediate surgery. That same week he visited my home to pick up HERBAL PUMPKIN, ZINC and P-X . He took them before going to bed. He was able to get a good night’s sleep for the first time in many months. He took the herbal products faithfully every morning, noon and night. His consistency added to the success of the program. After a month or so, a black pus-like substance began to come out of his male organ which continued for several months. We concluded this was the infection coming out of the prostate gland. He continued faithfully and gradually the substance dried up. He feels great today and continues to take P-X daily." A.B.

"My husband pulled "something" in his left shoulder while putting heavy luggage in and out of the car and was in a great deal of pain the following day. I opened my "herbal medicine chest" and gave him two Bone/Skin Poultice , a CHAMOMILE to relax him from the pain, and rubbed the shoulder with TEI FU LOTION twice that day. The following day he was pain-free and back to normal. No doubt, medically this would have been a trip to the Ortho doc for a shot in the shoulder and pain killers or steroids. Hurrah for natural alternatives and the desire the body has to heal itself." R.S.

"Last year I couldn’t shake a respiratory bug even though I had been on Biaxin twice. I tried OLIVE LEAF , and the bug was gone the following day. I am taking it now so I won’t get sick with that bug like I used to every fall and spring." Chatty

"My boss was scheduled for root canal at the dentist but was having pain waiting for the day to arrive. I gave her some of my TEI FU OIL and she rubbed it on the gum surrounding the tooth and in a minute the pain was gone. She continued to use it with success. It’s always nice to help somebody feel better….especially when it’s your boss :-)" R.S.

"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.

"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

"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.

"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

"A man came into our shop having impotency problems. He tried the formula called X-A and after only two weeks came in to report that the problem was much improved." D.Watkins

"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

"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

"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.

"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.

"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.

"I’ve used CBG EXTRACT for many things and that stuff is great! I have used it on the kids and it works! While in California last May, Stephanie woke up crying one night with ear pain (she had a cold). I had my herbs with me (thanks to God) so I put a couple of drops in her ears and we all went back to sleep. She never complained about her ears again. This is the kid that will sleep through just about anything. When she wakes up with pain, it’s usually pretty bad." G.A.

"A lady had been deaf for 45 years. Taking 4 ALJ 4-5 times a day for allergies, she was beginning to hear. She added Stress-J for the nerves. Before long hearing was completely restored." J.B. "My grandson’s hearing test came back with a hearing loss of 30%. At 4 he had tubes put in his ears. We didn’t want that again, so I used CHLOROPHYLL , ECHINACEA & ALJ . In 4 weeks the test was normal." Ruby G.

" A nurse called about her baby’s ear infection . She’d finished 2 rounds of antibiotics with no results. Using CBG EXTRACT in the ears and internally, it cleared up. A friend uses CBG to prevent swimmer’s ear." S.Winslow

" Our daughter (3 months old) had brown fluid draining from her ears, so we used CBG EXTRACT and GARLIC OIL in it and it stopped the draining and she didn’t fuss with them any longer." S.B.

"I suffer with eczema in the winter months, especially my right thumb, which cracks open in one spot and never seems to heal until the warm weather comes in. The past few days, I’ve also developed a painful rash between my second and third fingers of my right hand. After reading your comments on TEA TREE OIL this morning, saying that it is good for wounds, I applied some to the rash. An hour later, I noticed that my finger was no longer bothering me. When I looked, I noticed that the rash was completely gone. I then applied it to my hard-to-heal thumb and, although the split is still there, it seems to have closed up a bit. I’ve also used GOLDEN SALVE on that thumb with great results. I love this stuff!" Joanne

"When S. was 2 years old, we were at the park and another child was there that we didn’t know and he bit Susannah on the nose. It broke the skin and it looked bad after we got home. I really worried about it, but I put GOLDEN SALVE on it and kept it on the wound. In a week it was totally healed. There was not even a scar. After that, Susannah would say, "Dat my Gold?" Only 6 months later, she smashed her finger in a hinged lid to a desk. It cut through the nail and looked like she’d lose the tip of her finger. When we got to the emergency room, they stitched it back and said they didn’t know if the blood flow would get there or not. They wrapped it up with some of their cream and we were to leave it alone for 2 days and return. When we returned it didn’t look any better to me, and they wrapped it again and told me to continue to unwrap it and put some cream on. Well, I decided to use GOLDEN SALVE and by the time I went back again in 2 days, they said it was looking fine and not to return. I kept the Golden Salve on there and now you can’t even tell there was stitches….no scar….nothing! GOLDEN SALVE is much in use at our house and has done many great things!" B.

Important Note: We have personally used Golden Salve on many of our emergencies. It has herbal antibiotics in it to keep infection out. It generates new tissue fast, and heals so well that you rarely see a scar. Our son, Ben, has avoided many stitches by using Golden Salve (after the Capsicum has stopped the bleeding). My husband, Randal, has avoided stitches after cutting himself with a tree saw and also a piece of metal on the car. PLEASE be wise in your decision to use alternative health care for emergencies. Donna Watkins

"A friend of ours had a cough for months. The doctors told him he had emphysema . He coughed at night and even coughed up blood sometimes. Before finishing one bottle of ALJ and MARSHMALLOW & FENUGREEK , the cough was gone." V. G.

"I’ve had endometriosis for 10 years. The daily pain became severe during January. I would often be hunched over with pain as I walked. I was taking up to 4-5 pain pills per day and they were not helping. In June, I began to take RED RASPBERRY and DONG QUAI on a daily basis. Within 6 days I began to notice that there was less pain. Now, after two weeks of use, I am pain free and my hot flashes have also subsided." J.H.

ENERGY "I don’t do a lot of exercising, especially bike riding. I was invited to go mountain biking with a friend in the mountains of Utah. I was afraid I wouldn’t survive the strenuous climb. I took ENERG-V and TARGET ENDURANCE for two days preceding the ride, and on the day of the ride. I found that I was not even hungry during the day-long ride, and even more, that I was able to keep up with my friend, who has been riding these trails for three years. After the 21-mile ride, I did not experience any stiffness, and my energy level was normal the following day." D.Wall

"I was looking for something to help with weight loss and I chose NATURE’S CHI (I think I meant to get Fen Chi, but no matter!) and FAT GRABBERS . The Nature’s Chi is wonderful. I have only been taking it for 3 days and I feel revitalized. I have had problems previously with my energy level and I have been concerned I wasn’t getting all I could from life because I was constantly tired. When I got home from work, I would rest, drag myself to the kitchen to make dinner for my husband, eat, and then rest some more. These past few days have been a different story. I took my puppy on a long walk one day, I went grocery shopping, I began redecorating my bedroom. I am so pleased with the results." MJ

"When I use ony one (1) packet of the ULTIMATE BUILD , I feel so good all day long. I think the energy formula in it really keeps me going all day. I took the fiber drink at night for all the wonderful benefits of fiber in the diet (blood sugar regulation, colon cleansing, cholesterol, fat grabbing, etc.). Drinking plenty of water was really important." Jennie

"It’s warm and springy and I was again reminded of the wonderful outdoor uses of SUNSHINE CONCENTRATE . I spent the afternoon cleaning up my lawn furniture which was effortless with a bucketful of water mixed with Sunshine Concentrate. Everything comes off so easily and I am not concerned about hurting the environment. Then it was car wash time. Did you know that a dot of Sunshine Concentrate on a bug or tar spot just nearly lifts right off? Hardly any scrubbing involved. Thanks Nature’s Sunshine for a great product!" Robin

"I like to work outside in the garden, but would always be so exhausted and ‘washed out’ after only a couple of hours of work. A friend suggested I try PRIME FORM RECOVERY . The taste was so good and the ingredient list looked so nutritious that I thought it would help me in some way, so I ordered some. I was amazed! I drank some before I went out and after three hours of work, I came back in to cool down and have some more. I was able to go back out and work another two hours. I need to share this with some of my fellow seniors!" D.P.

"I ordered some Eyebright Plus because I’ve had some problems with my eyes and liked what was in the formula. I used it as directed, 2 a day, and in two weeks my eyes were so much clearer. I really like it." Mary P.

"I had a history of female problems: Questionable pap tests, heavy menstrual flow, uterus lined with fibroid tumors, I’d had numerous D&C’s, and I was on progesterone to control the bleeding, but it wasn’t doing it. I was bleeding 26 days a month for 6 years. I finally began to hemorrhage so much that my husband took me to the Doctor who said I needed an emergency hysterectomy. Bloodwork showed that my blood count was too low for surgery without transfusions, and after receiving several shots I was told to come back in 3 days for the surgery. We’d heard of herbs and had a friend who used them, so we went to her. I began taking NF-X ( NF-X is no longer available, but you can substitute FEMALE COMFORT ), RED RASPBERRY , CALCIUM PLUS , and LIQUID CHLOROPHYLL . Within 2 weeks the bleeding had stopped. In two months there were no tumors, the pap test was clear, and that was 11 years ago. I feel better than I ever have in my life and I’m thankful for herbs." D. Scott

"I am one of those lucky people who got very noticeable pain relief in less than two weeks using FIBRALGIA . It is still working its magic." Eleanor

"The new year greeted us with the flu and guess who got it the worst? Me! I had to be pretty aggressive fighting it. My sinuses got infected and my ears were bothering me. I was using ECHINACEA/GOLDENSEAL, CC-A, ALJ , etc. and was not being able to control it.

Finally, I put CBG in my nose! I’d heard about doing this on a tape. That did it! I got rid of some pretty disgusting "green" stuff and then I could finally breathe. Within two days, the pain in my face was gone. I also changed to IGS II instead of the ECHINACEA/GOLDENSEAL . The kids had some pretty scary fevers too (104). We are all doing better now. I’m extremely happy we avoided the doctor’s office completely!" G.A.

FUNGUS – In House
Tea Tree Oil kills the spores when diffused into wet areas of the house. I have used it after my basement rug was under an inch of water and never had fungus. I used it when I was getting water in my windowsill with black spores of fungus all around. The tea tree oil was diffused and I have never had a fungus problem. These diffusers are great. Phyllis H.

"I started taking MSM because of my knee and am on my second bottle (I usually only take 2 in the morning). Both my big toenails have had fungus for a very long time. Half of my nail now looks completely normal, it looks like when the other grows out that my nail will be fine. I can only attribute it to the MSM because I am not taking anything else different."  G.C.

Generally, people who are trying to flush out their gall bladder will fast for 24-48 hours on pure apple juice (the ingredient label says, "apple juice" only!). The malic acid in apples is said to break down gall stones. An herbal laxative (Cascara or LBS II ) can be used as needed and Gall Bladder Formula is usually helpful. Usually 2 capsules of Gall Bladder Formula is taken every 2 hours during the fast. One may also wish to take 2 capsules of Hydrangea with it which is a stone solvent. At the end of 2 days at bedtime, drink 1/2 c. cold-pressed olive oil and 1/2 c. fresh-squeezed lemon juice mixed. Immediately go to bed and lie on your right side for at least 1/2 hour before going to sleep. In the morning, if you don’t have a bowel movement, take an enema. You will see dark black or green objects which look like shriveled peas. You may want to continue the apple juice fast another day and do another olive oil & lemon juice flush at bedtime.

"I had been told due to a CAT scan that I needed to have my gall bladder removed. Being only 35 I didn’t want to do that. I had heard there was a cleanse you could do to get rid of gall stones, so this is what I read you could do and I decided to try it:

"Gallstones have been dissolved and flushed out of the body on a 3-day fast with nothing but apple juice throughout the day (not the kind with water from concentrate, but the kind you buy in the Health Food Store that is unfiltered – apples are only ingredient – you need about two gallons). You can water it down so that it’ll last and be filling for you. You can eat raw veggies or fruit if you need to….but nothing that would have fat in it (to cause the gallbladder to have to work). Each evening, right before bed, you take 1/2 c. fresh lemon juice (or frozen Minute Maid in yellow bottle in black box) and 1/2 c. cold-pressed olive oil. Put them in blender with a couple of ice cubes and it will help to emulsify them. Guzzle that down (real fast!) and go right to bed. Lay on your right side and go to sleep. You repeat this process for the 2nd and 3rd day and night. Depending on how many and how large the gall stones are, they’ll begin showing up in the toilet bowl – green or black round balls."

I did the 3 day cleanse twice over two different weekends including fresh apples and carrots, and the bedtime knockout – lemon juice and olive oil cocktail. Well, here’s the great news. I went to the hospital yesterday for my ultrasound and two techs looked and looked and said, ‘There are no stones or blockages here, why would your doctor waste your time and ours?’ I acted innocent, and said, ‘Oh well, I don’t mind the hassle as long as it’s good news.’ Thanks so much for sharing natural health information and saving me from having to have surgery. I feel so much stronger and healthier as I was pro-active in the events being plotted out by the medical community. This just adds to my belief that miracles can happen to those who are willing to let them in." BW

"I thought I would write and give you an experience I had with LIQUID CHLOROPHYLL . Two weeks ago I had an upper GI bleed. I really lost a lot of blood and felt very week and woozy. I took SLIPPERY ELM and also took the last of the NSP Chlorophyll that I had that night. It was Saturday night and I hate the emergency room, so I felt I could take care of it. I got H-p FIGHTER the next day and started on it, and drinking 1 quart of fresh cabbage juice a day that my dear Floyd fixed for me. When Monday came I could not see my doctor, because he was not in the office. I have problems with doctors and decided to wait for him, which ended up being a week. I got another quart of Liquid Chlorophyll and began taking a lot (probably an ounce or more in water about 5 times a day at least). Within 24 hours I felt stronger, and every day felt better. I also used CHAMOMILE tea, GINGER tea, H-p FIGHTER , and the cabbage juice. When I did see the Dr. I told him everything I’d taken. He said it is working, because when he pressed my stomach it did not hurt. He didn’t give me any medicine or make me go through heavy testing. He did a blood test, and when we got the results my hemoglobin was 14, lowest accepted normal is 12.5 according to my lab sheet. In l997 mine was 15. When the nurse told me, she said he said everything looks good, and to remember what I did and keep doing it. He told me I was braver than he, since he would’ve put me in the hospital had he been here. It made me feel really good that I was able to take care of such a serious problem. Also made me appreciate you folks for helping me with my herbal education. Thanks again. You may use this experience if you like." S.C.  (Tea can be made from any of the capsules if opened into a cup and boiling water is added.)

"I have acid reflux and the medicine wasn’t working, so a friend told me to get STOMACH COMFORT because it had worked for her. I did and it started to help real quick and does the job. I love to eat!" M.Sill

"I had a horrible, horrible case of acid reflux. I took 12 INTESTINAL SOOTHE AND BUILD a day — 3 at each meal and 3 at bedtime — for 3-4 months and then I was able to reduce the amount. I also took the FOOD ENZYMES and also BIFIDOPHILUS It was those 3 things plus God that resulted in my complete recovery from the problem. Praise the Lord!" A.B.

"I am so thrilled with my success using FOOD ENZYMES, STOMACH COMFORT, and HSN-W . I’ve been using Food Enzymes religiously for about a month. This week, for the first time since I started Food Enzymes, I decided not to take my daily Prevacid tablet (I’ve had horrible Reflux Disease for six years). I haven’t taken any Prevacid for 4 days and I’m FINE! No reflux. A little belching, but nothing like I usually experience when I stop my medication. This is a MIRACLE! I truly believe that if I continue taking the Food Enzymes, I’ll never have to take Prevacid again! HSN-W is already making a difference in my skin and hair. I also noticed I’ve been losing weight. That’s why I just ordered SF and NATURE’S CLEANSEature’s Cleanse . I want to cleanse my system, lose weight, and GET HEALTHY. Along with this, I have been reading "Healing In His Wings." It is changing my life! Thank you for being my angel. This is all because of you … and God!" Joanne

"My teenager really broke out with acne. We decided to give him 2 LIV-J three times the first day. Then for a few days he drank a tea made of the LIV-J, a few swallows each day, so he wouldn’t cleanse too quickly. Then he went back to 2 of each per day for 5 days. By then his face was almost entirely free and clear of acne." C.J.B.

"I had read that acne comes from toxic blood so I decided to cleanse my son’s blood to see if it would clear up his skin problem. I used BP-X which is what the girl at the herb shop said was being used successfully by others with acne problems. It did the job!" B.C.

"I grab my BLACK OINTMENT when I get an occasional female breakout. It draws out the toxicity and readily clears up the imperfections. It’s not something you would wear under makeup (it is a bit greasy), but it’s great for around the house or during the night." R.S.

"Somebody recommended Stress-J for my 8-year-old son’s ADD problem. This was my first exposure to herbs, but I didn’t like the effects the Ritalin was having on him, so I was willing to try something natural. I couldn’t believe how much difference the herbs made and neither could he. He is now off the Ritalin and he keeps his herbs at the school office and has permission to take them as he feels he needs them. What a difference in our home life and teacher relationships!" M. Bishop

"My 11-year-old son struggled with grades due to concentration problems. I used 1 Nature’s Sunshine GINKGO BILOBA Time-Release & 1 B-COMPLEX per day. He’s now making A/B Honor Roll for the first time in his life. I tried another brand and it didn’t do the job, so I’m sticking to my original program." M.H.

"My daughter (age 11) lost 12 lbs. in six (6) months using Dexadrene (10 mg./day) for ADD. I decided to try GINKGO-GOTU KOLA Concentrate . I gave her 1 in the morning and 1/2 after school. She even has better grades now than with the drug and is regaining the weight she had lost."  P.W.

"I had used Lavender Oil to take away my chronic muscle pain and headaches, so I decided to try FOCUS BLEND Essential Oils for our ADHD child. It has really made a difference in his concentration and schoolwork." D. Goodman "I decided to try herbs for my 4-year-old hyperactive-ADD son. I began using Stress-J LIQUID since he couldn’t swallow pills. I used 10 drops of each 3 times a day. We also changed his diet eliminating sugar and red coloring. In 2 months we noticed a difference; now 6 months later we don’t have a problem as long as we use the herbs. One day I forgot the herbs when I dropped him off at the day care center. There was panic in his eyes and in his teacher’s eyes. They both knew how key these herbs were to his well-being." G.W.

"I’ve been an alcoholic since I was a teen. I tried willpower, prayer, Alcoholics Anonymous, etc., for more than 30 years without success. Then I read about Harvard Medical School’s study on Kudzu Root . Two chemicals within the root suppress or eliminate the craving for alcohol. Desperate, I tried some and it worked! I’ve been sober for 10 months. I didn’t think it would really happen." M.E. 

"I used LIV-J and ALJ for my allergies. The liver must neutralize all poisons and toxins that enter the bloodstream or they cause allergies, so a liver combination is an important part of an allergy program. I’ve had excellent results." M. Baldwin

"My seven-year-old boy was never able to play and roll in the grass due to allergies. We used ALJ . Now he can play in the grass all he wants with no allergy problems." B. Hawkins "Me and my son, Tony, have always had an allergy condition. Now they’ve been brought under control using BEE POLLEN and SINUS SUPPORT . Bee Pollen must be started in small quantities as it builds resistance to pollens similar to the way allergy shots work." Mac Cicak "I’ve had hayfever problems since I was a child and medications would always make me tired and groggy. I’ve been using SINUS SUPPORT for many years with excellent results. It even takes away the itchy eyes." D.P.

"My nose was running all the time and I’d cough every 20 minutes. I began using ALJ and within 24 hours the cough had stopped and the running was slowed. In 48 hours, the drainage has completely stopped. I’d had a continual sore throat from the drainage and that is 70% improved to." Jesse A.

"A friend recommended I try Aloe Vera and I bought some of the WHOLE LEAF ALOE VERA and took it twice a day as mentioned. I could tell a difference in only a week on my energy, blood pressure, and it helped my bowels. I love that Aloe Vera!" Veronica S.

"I stopped in The Herbs Place on recommendation of a friend to get some ideas for my mother who has Alzheimer’s. I talked with Randal and also read some materials on the research table and decided to use BRAIN PROTEX since it was the most potent. She used it according to directions, and by the end of the first bottle the entire family could tell there was a difference. I just came back to buy two more bottles and wanted to let you know how excited I am that’s there’s something natural that is REALLY helping her." S. Mason

ANXIETY ATTACKS "I wanted to let you know I think the Stress-J is working! I ran out on vacation and started feeling a little uneasy when I get up (I have mild to severe anxiety/panic attacks when I wake up). So, I ordered again and hope I will notice the difference again. I also order the liquid for my daughter. She has always suffered with tummy trouble. Had her checked out and they don’t find a problem, so I think it’s a combination of foods and stress. Looked at the website and thought this would be great for her, especially since she is not good with pills. She also just started high school and we all remember how those days can be. Best to you and your great products!" Chris

"I wanted to see if LAVENDER OIL would help me get to sleep and stay asleep. I ordered the MASSAGE OIL because of the excellent oils it contains to use as a carrier base for the Lavender. I mixed 1/4 bottle of Lavender to the bottle of Massage Oil and used it at bedtime. I didn’t realize until the end of the next day that besides getting a wonderful night’s sleep, my shoulders that normally reach for my ear lobes due to tightness had not bothered me all day, and it was a deadline kind of day at the office. I had sailed through it like it was no big deal. The real interesting thing is that the effects lasted for two days. By the way, I’ve rubbed it on various area and am now finding that my dry skin is gone!" Barbara

"I have a friend who suffers from arthritis. I thought SAM-e might help with her condition, so I gave her a bottle. The results were wonderful – but they weren’t what I had expected. She said the SAM-e calmed her nerves and gave her a really positive feeling. She’s nervous in the first place, and being an executive at a bank doesn’t help her state of mind. But she reported back to me that SAM-e took the edge right off. Now she’s asking for more. It’s wonderful!" Margarite

"I love the Nature’s Sunshine SAM-e . It’s the best! Other products I’ve tried have tended to make me feel jittery and unsure. This SAM-e has gotten me feeling better FAST. I highly recommend it." Kirstin

"After only one day of FOOD ENZYMES , I can’t believe how much better I feel. I have desired so much less food today. I had a couple slices of toast for lunch and was totally satisfied. I made bread pudding today and had a small amount for supper and am not hungry at all. No burping either! So, it seems I’ve hit upon something to cut my appetite so I can eat less and assimilate it better, which should get some of this weight off. Thanks for explaining the connection between digesting food and cutting appetite." R.S.
"After trying everything for arthritis and sciatica , my wife convinced me to try Ayurvedic Joint Health . Within a couple of weeks I had improved so much that I moved my office furniture and equipment without pain and am now able to walk without a limp. When I stopped taking Ayurvedic Joint Health the symptoms returned." B. Morris

"I had sold a man 2 bottles of Joint Support for arthritis to which he had minimal results. After only a week on Ayurvedic Joint Health he has been singing its praises………I also had a young woman with bursitis to the point that her shoulder had ‘dropped.’ Within a week of starting Ayurvedic Joint Health ( she was so much better that her shoulder regained its normal position and she was able to stop taking her medication for pain." G. Pace

"My job requires that I bend my knees a lot. When I took Nature’s Sunshine’s SAM-e I felt that my discomfort reduced enormously." Lillian

"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.

"I’ve been on medication since age two for asthma, a total of 29 years. I was on "every medicine known – shots and all. I was also using an expensive prescription spray 15-30 times a day. Before Christmas I began taking ALJ and SINUS SUPPORT . I began noticing results immediately and chose to get off my medication. I did fine. I have added CHICKWEED to my program. Now, two months later, I use the spray only occasionally and am able to do some of the things I’ve never been able to do. My wife says, ‘He’s better than he’s ever been since I’ve known him.’" T. Nimmons

"My daughter asked me to try herbs for my asthma and difficult breathing. I didn’t have any energy trying to breathe all the time. I bought Ayurvedic Bronchial Formula and it has done an excellent job. I’m able to breathe and go again." Customer of The Herbs Place

"I began using ALJ, RED CLOVER and a good CLEANSE for my system, and noticed relief right from the start. I was able to give up the breathing machine and stop using medication. Friends and family were commenting that I was looking better. I recently went back to the doctor for a checkup and he asked me if I was using the medicine and machine and I said I wasn’t, so he said for me to keep doing whatever it was I was doing." Hilda Collett

"I just wanted to tell you that the BLACK WALNUT EXTRACT worked on my athlete’s foot. I guess since I am pregnant I am "hormonally predisposed" to it right now. I couldn’t get rid of it and my doctor didn’t want to put me on anti-fungal medication until after the baby is born. I was getting Athlete’s Foot a lot in my last pregnancy as well. I put the Black Walnut Extract on at night and used a nail brush on my feet in the morning and powdered the heck out of my shoes with AF powder. The results were pretty dramatic and I am happy." Kellie

"My hubby, a natural skeptic about herbs, broke out with athlete’s foot a few weeks ago. He allowed me to put a few drops of Tea Tree Oil on the problem. I massaged the oil into the area and overnight the athlete’s foot was gone!" A.K.

"My teenager was still wetting the bed nightly. I’d tried other things, but read that a blood sugar problem sometimes causes this. So I began giving him SPIRULINA at bedtime. That night it stopped and it’s been three weeks since we’ve had a problem." A Happy Mom

BIRTH CONTROL ALTERNATIVE "In reference to a previous newsletter on natural birth control, I want to share my knowledge of the Sympto-Thermal Method of Natural Family Planning (NFP). The way NFP works is by being aware of the fertility signals in a woman’s body and using them to either conceive or postpone a pregnancy. It is 99% effective, just like the chemical methods of birth control. Hormonal changes in the woman’s body produce measureable signs of fertility. There is an abstinence period for about a week. Believe it or not, this time turns out to be such a blessing. It forces the couple to communicate and to express their love in a non-sexual way. You end up having a time of "courtship" and anticipation, plus a honeymoon during every cycle. The percentage of divorce among couples practicing NFP is surprisingly low – only about 5%.

Thanks to NFP, I confirmed that I had an underactive thyroid and corrected it naturally with herbs. I’ve corrected many small things during my cycle by learning what should be happening and what shouldn’t. I’ve corrected excessive bleeding with herbs.

It also, helps determine the baby’s due date accurately. This can be important in some cases, especially for women with irregular cycles like me. With my third child, I had gestational diabetes and she was going to be induced on the due date. The due date given to me by the doctor was Aug. 5th. Because I knew when she was conceived and when she was due – Aug 28, I requested an ultrasound. The ultrasound confirmed my dates and that is the day she was born—without induction! NFP has forever changed our lives! We’ve changed the way we see children, the way we see each other, and the way we see God in our lives. I pray this will be of benefit to many more." Giselle A. – Recommended book: Fertility, Cycles, & Nutrition

"I was bitten by some sort of insect while asleep, but I certainly noticed the bite. I thought it would go away like most bites do, but it kept got redder, sorer, and harder. After a couple of weeks I was worried and put BLACK OINTMENT on. Two days later I could squeeze out a bunch of pus and blood. I continued using Black Ointment and squeezing out more yuk each time until it healed. Black ointment worked great for a bite that I left go much too long. I should’ve put it on right away to draw out those poisons immediately." P.N.

"I had a history of kidney and bladder infections. After four weeks of antibiotics the infections came back. I couldn’t stand or lie down or breathe without pain. After months of using antibiotics I decided to listen to my mom who had sent me URINARY MAINTENANCE . I took it in large quantities since it was herbs and nutrients. It did the job. I was able to stand up without any pain and the infection was gone!" D. C.

"My daughter had recurrent Urinary Tract Infections. She’d been on mega doses of antibiotics for 7 years, had several surgeries, and still had constant infections. We began giving her UVA URSI, PROACTAZYME and CALCIUM PLUS and for 5 months she had no infections. She stopped taking the products and in 2 months had a major infection. The doctor at Children’s Hospital in Birmingham wanted her back on the herbs." S.H.

"Can I tell you how much better my bones and bladder feel? I had a real scare a month ago and thought I was going to have to go to the hospital. I never told anyone, just took like 30 Horsetail and Cornsilk a day for a week and it got better, but I was in horrible pain. I knew it was self-inflicted and I thought to myself, "well, you can keep this up and end up at a urologist one day where they have to do surgery to your bladder or put you on drugs for the spasms, or … you can take care of yourself." I decided I liked the latter. I want to go through my whole life without having to have surgery on anything…smart choice eh? I have lost 10 lbs in one month by leaving off pop, coffee and desserts. I wake up with energy, instead of that horrible fog and I can urinate again. How nice. My biggest help was when Louise gave me a program when we were in Charleston and Horsetail and Cornsilk are what really works. I have to take a lot, about 10 a day for maintenance, but I have long pretty nails and my bones like it too. Isn’t it nice getting those side-effects that are great instead of those that are awful from drugs?" Happy from Chicago

"I have always been a blood donator, but many times I couldn’t donate because of a low blood count (red cells or something). I have been drinking LIQUID CHLOROPHYLL for awhile now, about three (3) times a week. I gargle and swallow it. Well, last week when I went to donate blood, my blood count was good and I was able to donate! I think it’s because of the chlorophyll building my blood." R. S.

"I was using medication for high blood pressure for 1-1/2 years. I began using CAPSICUM, GARLIC & PARSLEY COMBINATION and HS II and noticed a big difference in 2-3 months. Six months after beginning the herbs, I was off medication. I still use these two products off and on to prevent the problem from reoccurring." M. Belser

"I began using LIV-J and LIQUID CHLOROPHYLL to get off of blood pressure medication. My reading was 160/110. My blood pressure dropped to 100/70, my cholesterol went from 270 to 160 and my liver enzymes had been 3 times what they were supposed to be and when retested showed up as normal. I’m happy!" L. Campbell

"I had a friend with a blood pressure of 290/135 who refused to use medication. He tried CAPSICUM, GARLIC & PARSLEY which he used for 3 days and his blood pressure was 190/80. He’s willing to stay with the herbs." J. R.

"Tim got boils badly in Kenya. When we came home to the states, I was given some BLACK OINTMENT to put on them. It pulled them out with a core, and there would even be a hole for a little while." Paula

"I’ve had problems with breast tumors for the last 15 years. I’ve been to see many doctors and gone through one operation and several aspirations. These treatments were quite painful and accomplished nothing. Doctors recommended complete removal of breast tissue and replacement with silicon. I then had somebody tell me to try herbs . That was 2 years ago. I’ve also changed my diet to more healthful foods . During my last visit to my doctor he discovered my breasts were completely healed. He insisted that I tell him what I had been taking, but when I mentioned herbs, he left the room." G.D.

"I received a jar of GOLDEN SALVE and decided to try it on the broken blood vessels on my face. I thought they were going away, but was sure they were after my husband noticed and mentioned it to me." Jeanette

"Praise God for prayer and the herbs! Getting out of the car I really twisted my ankle. The doctor said it was broken with sprained ligaments and tendons and a chipped fracture on the outside of the ankle. He put a cast on January 25th for about 6 weeks. I went to The Herbs Place and bought some Bone/Skin Poultice and PLS II, both bone-knitting formulas. I began taking them, one of each 3x/day. February 10th I went for my check-up. They removed the cast and I actually walked to get x-rays. They decided not to put the cast back on after only 2-1/2 weeks! I began using 2-3x/day of each product knowing I would need even more support without the cast for the rest of the healing process." S.O’Brien

"My neighbor had broken bones from the thumb to the wrist. The doctor said a cast would need to be on for 12 wks. He tried PLS II and CALCIUM PLUS . After 4-5 weeks he returned to the Dr. who took an x-ray and was amazed to find the hand healed!" G. Trammell

BRONCHITIS "My mother was diagnosed with chronic bronchitis and for the past two or three winters she has had to enter the emergency room for breathing treatments for a few hours. I started giving her (NSP) Ayurvedic Bronchial Formula the summer of 1998, so therefore, when winter came she did not have a breathing attack. First, I am thankful to God, then to Donna, who told me about the herb. My husband takes it too and it is wonderful!" P. C. Wilson

"Toree’s little bottom is clearing up and is almost totally clear after only two days of using GOLDEN SALVE !! She has no more itching or soreness or anything now! What a blessing!!! One bump is completely gone, one other is almost gone and a third is about half way there. The other rash she had along with the bumps is barely visible now. She is now excited about putting medicine on her hiney because she feels so much better." Tammy

J.M. has a long history of canker sores. His wife has been a customer for two years and has tried L-Lysine , B-Complex and watching his diet for the mouth sores. His sores would even go down his throat. He tired VS-C and the results were excellent.

"I have a long history of canker sores and have had as many as nine in my mouth at one time. Even drinking water was painful. I waited until I started to get a sore before I started using the VS-C . My canker sores can last up to two weeks. This time it never really got larger than the size of a pinhead and there wasn’t any pain or discomfort and all the signs were gone in four days. Also, since using the formula I have not had the frequency of the canker sores nor the severity." K.L.

"I was having a lot of health problems for which the doctors could give me no help, so I was referred to a psychiatrist. I met someone who encouraged me to take a natural approach suggesting I make some dietary changes and I began using supplements and herbs. I used CAPRYLIMUNE to kill yeast along with PAU D’ARCO . I used lots of NUTRI CALM since my adrenals were depleted and my body was in such an exhausted state. I used ECHINACEA to fight infections. I had been on antibiotics for many years. I used BIFIDOPHILUS to replace the good bacteria, and added CITRUS BIOFLAVONOIDS and SUPER SUPPLEMENTAL for nutritional support. I was having much more energy, no aches and pains, and no infections. It’s now been 2-1/2 years without antibiotics which is a miracle in itself." P.S.

"This has worked for every single client I’ve had with this, bar none. My dad was on verge of surgery and he was almost 100% in 3 weeks. He and other have taken Yucca – 6 a day, Alfalfa – 6 a day, 2 Vitamin B6 with 1 B Complex three times a day." Nolee

"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 had been using herbs and supplements for many of my health problems, so I decided to try the same approach for cataracts. I used EW combination of herbs which I made into an eyewash (brewing it 2 capsule to 1/2 c. of boiling water and making it fresh every 4 days). Using an eye cup, I washed my eyes 2-3 times a day for several months until I no longer had the cataracts. I was taking 6 capsules a day internally also. There were periods of days where so much mucus and matter came out of my eyes I had to rinse them every few hours." John Powell

4/90 – "Thanks for data received on EW . After considerable thought I’ve decided to try some eyewash and capsules as I have nothing to lose. I’ve probably had congenital cataracts all or most of my life.

9/90 – "Since I saw you last I appear to have made further progress with my eyes. For about a week I’ve been able to read, knit, etc. more comfortably and for longer periods. Last Sunday after breakfast I had a visual disturbance in both eyes (flickering lines of light) which lasted about half an hour. I used to get them before a migraine headache. I did not get a headache this time! When my eyes did clear and I was able to read, I studied my herb books and discovered that Diabetes is one complaint that can be cured by Goldenseal.

1/91 – "I can’t wait to tell you the glad tidings! This morning I checked my vision and I can now see clearly out of both eyes! I still have a slight problem with watery eyes, probably due to the glare this time of year, I’m working on that. Diabetes settling down nicely on Pro-Pancreas . I’m so happy with the progress." R.K.

"I was given a bottle of CELLU_SMOOTH to try and I absolutely love it! Not only has it greatly diminished the appearance of cellulite on my thighs, but it makes me feel wonderful. I was amazed that after about three days, the back of my legs looked much smoother. Now that I have taken almost the entire bottle, my legs look as smooth as they were when I was in high school! And it makes me feel like I’m in balance." Debra Taramona "I recently tried a bottle of Cellu-Smooth , and I LOVE IT! After I had taken it for only a few days, my husband noticed a difference. It really works! I’ve used the whole bottle and I want more." Lora Slaughter

"I must tell you, I used that GOLDEN SALVE on my perpetually dry lips and they are not dry today! I can never keep them moist or free of chapping and peeling even when I constantly use something on them. Just thought you would like to know of a success that you can share with others." Tammy L.

"I began taking Pau d’Arco to prevent some of the side effects of chemotherapy. When I read about Pau d’Arco it said it gets your bowels moving. I had problems with constipation and LBSII just made me cramp too much even at 1 per day. Since I’ve been on Pau d’Arco at 1/2 teaspoon three times a day, I have 1-2 movements a day, plus I have a an overall general good feeling." D.M.

"My older daughter slammed the door on Sarah’s fingers, my two year old daughter. She didn’t realize it at first as she walked away, so it took about 20 seconds of Sarah screaming and jumping up and down for her to realize what she had done. Sarah’s first and second knuckles on the fingers had deep indentations and she was screaming with pain. I used 4 drops of Helichrysum on them in 10 seconds she stopped crying. There was no bruising or evidence of the accident the next day. It was amazing to me. The following week Nature’s Sunshine had this particular oil on special and I ordered the Buy 4, Get 1 Free special to have this marvelous stuff always on hand. I know that it is an expensive oil, but it is sure worth it! " Wendi Hawn

"I have ordered the Herbasaurs Liquid Multi-Vitamin with Iron for the grandkids. The two-year-olds were eating dirt like candy, so I knew something was lacking, and one of them had terrible dry skin. They have gone through two bottles now, and his dry skin has improved, and they don’t eat the dirt anymore. So thank you for putting "The Herbs Place" on the internet. God bless you and your family." Elly

"I used FAT GRABBERS for 10 days as directed and my cholesterol went from 216 to 194. My blood pressure went from 127 over 75 to 109 over 57. For 5 days I ate regular meals and even ate out 3 times with desserts, then for 5 days I ate like I was dieting and I still lost 3 lbs. and 3-1/2 inches." Virginia Franks "My cholesterol problem began with a reading of 372. My doctor put me on 40 mg. of Mevacor and I was able to get the reading down to 220. HDL – LDL ratio was still not good. I began taking a Nature’s Sunshine herb & supplement program in April 1990 consisting of:
LECITHIN – 2-2X/day   
NIACIN – 1-2x/day    
OMEGA 3 EPA – 1-2x/day    
LIV-J – 3-2x/day     Two months later I went for another blood test and received these results:
Cholesterol – 163 (Normal is 160-200)
Triglycerides – 182 (Normal is 60-290)
HDL – 36 (Normal is 3-70)
LDL – 98 (Normal 90-130)

I’m still on the program and have been able to keep my cholesterol within the Normal Ranges (182) and have relaxed my diet." Ray W.

" My cholesterol was 400 with triglycerides of 3,000. Not a great picture of health. I decided to do something naturally since I didn’t like the long list of side effects when I read about the drugs. I chose CHOLESTER-REG and also did some liver cleansing with LIV-J . In less than three (3) months, my test results showed the cholesterol was down to 220 and the triglycerides down to an amazing 300. I like doing it the natural way!" D. L.

"I decided to try VS-C LIQUID for Chronic Fatigue. For the first three days I felt worse, and then after that it made such a difference. When I ran out I really noticed the difference. A week later I was back in bed. I decided to make the 45-mile drive to get more and sign up for wholesale membership so I could have it come to my house." Brenda M.   

"A man named Dean could barely walk with a cane when he entered my store. His doctor had told him he would have to amputate his leg due to severe lack of circulation. His other leg was just a little better. We talked about building health in the Circulatory System using BUTCHER’S BROOM , MEGA-CHEL , and OMEGA-3 EPA . He Started on them right away. He came back a week later walking without a cane! He was ecstatic about how much better his legs were feeling. A week after that he was walking everywhere without pain. Then one day he came in complaining his legs were feeling like they were just "waking up" – a tingling, painful feeling. I told him to be patient and the feeling would go away. He went back to the doctor who confirmed that he no longer needed the amputation. It’s been almost two years and Dean is still taking maintenance amounts of Mega-Chel and Butcher’s Broom faithfully. He literally bounces into my store to buy them." L.H.

"I had a black and blue toenail due to lack of circulation because of a diabetic condition. The same toe was numb. I used VARIGONE for one week (taking two capsules twice a day) and the black and blue went away and the numbness was gone too." James A.  

"I’ve always had problems with my ankles swelling and my legs hurting from the pressure build-up. I decided to use VARIGONE™ to get rid of some varicose veins and for circulation to my legs. After taking for only a week, I noticed my legs didn’t hurt as much and the swelling was down in my ankles. In only a little more time, all pain was gone and I’m no longer battling with the leg and ankle problem." Brenda R.

"I just mopped the kitchen floor in a gallon of water, a squirt of Sunshine Concentrate and 7 drops of Lemon Essential Oil . I really like using bleach because it disinfects, but I know it is so bad, so I’m trying the Lemon Oil which smells so wonderful that it makes my mouth water! A really nice benefit is that the floor is not sticky or slippery which is the typical problem with chemical floor cleaners and the bleach leaves a residue that I have to rinse off. No rinsing with Sunshine Concentrate and Lemon Oil. It sure is nice to smell lemon and feel refreshed after mopping the floor instead of dazed out from bleach vapors." Robin

"I finished the Clean Start program and I feel much better. I think it would benefit anyone to go on it. I have my hubby on the Chinese Para-Cleanse . He is a truck driver and has always had bouts with constipation due to the nature of his work and the fact he drinks too much coffee and not enough water. In just 3 or 4 days he can tell a difference and feels good and is eliminating more regularly. I would recommend this program to people who don’t have ready access at all times to a bathroom, as you will need one handy at all times on the Clean Start program ." Marcia

"From the very first day of the CLEAN START Cleansing Program I had a lot of bowel movements. I could tell it was really cleaning me out. On the second day I felt a bit tired with nausea. On the third day I began cleansing through mucus drainage. The fourth day my energy kicked in and I noticed that my stress level had greatly improved. Everything seemed brighter and I felt so relaxed and calm. From the fifth day on I woke up in the morning without brain fog. I used to be groggy before and now it’s gone in the mornings and no brain fog during the day.

I took nothing else but this program so that I could see what it would do on its own. I like this so much better than any other cleanse that I’ve ever done. I used apple juice for the powder packet part of the program which made it taste okay. This is not an isolated experience since a friend of mine took CleanStart™ also at the same time and experienced the same pattern of symptoms. We are both elated with the results this cleanse has given us." Virginia

"I have been doing the Clean Start Cleanse Package and really enjoying it. My husband and I have both been amazed at the amount of "results" we have noticed in the toilet. I am sleeping like a baby and I used to have to take herbs at bedtime to sleep. My skin actually feels softer and I definitely have more energy. My husband says I am more fiesty because my brain is clearer. We have used many of the Nature’s Sunshine products, but this is the first one my husband has actually talked about at the office." Maggie

"My daughter, Breanna, has had 2 colds in the past 2 months and I started taking VITAMIN C and ECHINACEA/GOLDENSEAL and managed to stay healthy through both. Then I have friends who are always sick with the flu and I really can’t remember the last time I really was sick. Prevention is the best medicine!" Gay C.

"I had forgotten how wonderful ALJ was till I caught this cold. This firm seems to have a lot of bugs floating around! Anyway…..just two taken and within 15 minutes my nose stops running and I can catch my breath. Since I’ve got an Herbal Medicine Chest recommended on your website, I had some! It really does work! I had forgotten how good it is! The Tei Fu oil is great for opening my sinuses and lungs for ease of breathing and easing the sinus pressure. I’m going to begin pumping Citrus Bioflavnoids , Vitamin A , and Zinc too. I hate having a cold!" From The Firm :-)

"I was applying for additional life insurance, when the person desperately asked where the bathroom was. After returning she explained she had colitis and there wasn’t a cure for it. I I told her about herbs. She took some products and gave this ‘natural approach’ a try. She used CLT-X and SLIPPERY ELM , 2 capsules three times a day of each. She also used 2 capsules of ACIDOPHILUS in the morning and at bed. She was having results before finishing the first set of bottles. She has since bought these products for others in a colitis support group and they’re having similar results." J.Robertson

"From the very first day of the CleanStart™ Cleansing Program I had a lot of bowel movements. I could tell it was really cleaning me out. On the second day I felt a bit tired with nausea. On the third day I began cleansing through mucus drainage. The fourth day my energy kicked in and I noticed that my stress level had greatly improved. Everything seemed brighter and I felt so relaxed and calm. From the fifth day on I woke up in the morning without brain fog.

"I was in a car wreck years ago and had constant pain in my neck and shoulders. I had massage and chiropractic adjustments regularly. Somebody gave me NUTRI CALM . I took them and the pain was gone in 45 minutes. I’ve been taking Nutri Calm for two years and have no pain and full range of motion in my neck!" P.K.

"My husband and I both had root canal work the same week and were in a lot of pain, but didn’t want to take the prescription medication from the dentist. I stopped into "The Herbs Place" and asked what we could use for pain. I was directed to VAL EXTRACT to use topically and to be swallowed. This worked great for both of us and we were able to avoid the medication." M.M.

"I have had problems with my bowels for a long time. I have to keep up the whole grains to keep moving along. Recently, I had a bit of a challenge getting my bowels moving at all. I felt like I was swelling up and about to burst. I got some LBS II , a lower bowel cleanser, and got started on it. Although I started about a week into the problem, it did the job and got me back into being regular again. I like it because it’s potent enough to work, but gentle enough not to gripe (if you drink plenty of water with it), and it isn’t habit-forming." R.S.

"I’m allergic to cigarette smoke and because I work where there is smoke, I developed a coughing problem that persisted for 2-1/2 months. I used cough medicines and cough drops continually without much results. I stopped into The Herbs Place and talked with Randal about it and I decided to use ALJ . After taking it for only a day, my coughing stopped. I have continued to take it daily and I don’t have the problem any more. Since I am still working in a smoke environment, the problem returns when I stop the herbs. At least I’ve found a solution and I no longer have sinus problems either." MB

"Lena Gilbert had been going to doctors for quite some time with her lung and breathing problems. She was always very short-winded and coughed nearly all the time. The doctor told her if the medication didn’t work, he’d have to do a biopsy. Seven years earlier the doctors had told her husband the same thing, performed a biopsy and was told it was cancer and that he had only a few months to live. Seven hours later he died. So she began seeking another way. She heard about herbs and took 2 LH and 1 LOBELIA four times a day. On the third day she could take a deep breath, hardly coughing, after walking 18 blocks. She had a heart condition and was supposed to walk but hadn’t been able to. Now she is walking and using the herbs to feed her body and correct her problems." B. C.

"My daughter Yvonne was left with a nagging cough after all the illnesses. I was also concerned because she looked very thin and pale…..I gave her ECHINACEA/GOLDEN SEAL for about a week along with VITAMIN C and her Multi-Vitamins . I also added ROSE HIPS and KELP – one capsule of each twice a day. The cough is gone and she looks so much better." G.A.

"While we were on vacation last fall and I ended up cutting my finger to the bone. Unfortunately when I packed I didn’t include the cayenne pepper so had to do other things to get the bleeding stopped. After the bleeding was stopped I put TEI-FU oil on the cut and kept that on with a band-aid overnight. The next morning I took the band-aid off and was very surprised to find the cut had sealed closed and stayed that way. There was no pain to speak of unless I bumped it but even then it stayed closed. I continued to put the oil on 3-4 times a day for about 4 days and had no problems at all. This was the first time I had used Tei-Fu Oil that way and was very impressed.

I have continued using it on other cuts as it takes the pain away and speeds healing. Just last night my cat jumped on my shoulder, accidentally clawing me on the cheek and neck. After cleaning the blood away, on went the Tei-Fu Oil (and I do use it straight). This morning no redness or soreness and well on its way to healing." Debbie

"Yesterday I spent 1-1/2 hours in my dentist’s chair in order to have temporary crown work done. Because of prayer and your wonderful herbs, I came through the ordeal in a calm way. I didn’t have as much pain either. This is what I am taking: OLIVE LEAF EXTRACT , BLACK WALNUT , COENZYME Q10 , ANTIOXIDANTS , BEE POLLEN , FLAX SEED , LIQUID CALCIUM , SPIRULINA and LIQUID MINERALS . My dentist is an alternative dentist. He was very pleased with my taking the BLACK WALNUT and OLIVE LEAF EXTRACT . He recommended VITAMIN C also. I also rinse my mouth with TEA TREE OIL and water. It all helps." Mary Ann

(ABC News) A recent study has found more to cheer about. Researchers at Harvard University’s McLean Hospital studied 30 patients with bipolar disorders, characterized by chronic bouts of mania and depression. Half of the patients received fish oil supplements, and half received a placebo. It was found that the fish oil patients showed marked improvements over a four-month period. Lead researcher Andrew Stoll speculates that the Omega-3 EFAs in the fish oil are able to block the abnormal signals in the brain that are suspected to be present in bipolar disorders. While the study was small, it has been hailed as a landmark for its investigation into the effect of omega-3 fatty acids on the brain. Unfortunately, it seems doubtful that any drug company will fund fish oil studies, as natural products can’t be patented and so won’t bring in profits.

"I had a blood sugar reading of 340 in March 1989. I was using oral medication and a strict diet, however, the blood sugar remained high. The doctor was ready to begin insulin injections when I decided to try the herbs. I used TARGET P-14 and Pro-Pancreas , taking 3 of each 4X/day. June 1989, my blood sugar was 143. The doctor told me to keep up what I was doing. At my August checkup my blood sugar was 83. The doctor said, "That’s incredible!" I had the herbs along to show what I was doing. The doctor couldn’t believe it. He looked at the bottles and said there wasn’t anything in them that could hurt me and suggested I keep on doing what I was doing. My wife, Ethel, says, "We know what we’ve been doing and what we’ve been eating and nothing has been any different other than the herbs." Jim Johnson

"I began TARGET P-14 and Pro-Pancreas (3-3x/day) on Saturday. Monday at the doctor my sugar was over 500. The following Monday my sugar was 104. I continued 3-3x/day for a few weeks and have cut back to 2-3x/day as a maintenance program." D.Tipper

"We have a wonderful lady who keeps our home clean and looking good. We enjoy helping her in any way we can, so we suggested she try some herbs for her diabetes since she was struggling under the expense of buying insulin. We had seen another friend use herbs with great success and wanted to see her do well also. She agreed. We bought the herbs and she began taking Pro-Pancreas and TARGET P-14 twice a day. It’s now about two months later and she’s cut her insulin needs in half." R&J

"Mary Anne had a case of diaper rash like none of our other children. We tried Desitin and a few others with short term success but the severity and frequency of incidences seemed to increase. Then we discovered herbs! We applied some GOLDEN SALVE to the rash and it immediately soothed her, but with a day, she began to blister with oozing sores in the diaper area and that lasted a few days and then it all healed up. Understanding natural health solutions about this made us realize that the blistering was the body’s way of getting out all of the build up of toxins that the other creams had suppressed." Mac C.

"It is still with amazment that I think of how long I suffered with diarrhea before meeting you and trying the herbs to stop it. My life has been so much richer since getting on the right "medication," which is, of course, not medicine at all. The doctors had me on so many things and nothing was working. I can now plan my life around something other than a bathroom. Thanks for everything! I am now retired and traveling and could never have done this without a solution that God’s herbs provided. I am enjoying my grandchildren and looking forward to my first great grandchild with renewed spirit. The program I used was this: BOWEL BUILD (2 capsules with morning meal and 3 capsules with evening meal), PARSLEY (2 capsules with morning meal and 2 capsules with evening meal), and BLACK CURRANT OIL (2 capsules with morning meal and 2 capsules with evening meal). I tried different combinations of this and different dosages but this is what worked for me. Praise the Lord! I am forever grateful. I only pray that my story will help someone else that has reached the end of their "rope" as I had." R.G.

"I was dipping snuff for 20 years and wanted to quit. It was such an addiction and I used to hide it, but it got so bad that I would do it in the grocery store, at work, any where! I stopped in "The Herbs Place" and was looking around at the information and saw something to quit smoking. I decided to give it a try. I bought LOBELIA/ST. JOHN’S WORT combination. I used two that evening before bed and prayed that the Lord would give me a sign that it was going to work. When I woke up, I reached for the snuff to get myself out of bed. I suddenly realized that I didn’t feel like I needed it, so I didn’t use it. I continued to take the LOBELIA/ST. JOHN’S WORT as directed and have never touched the snuff again. I just don’t need it!" Betty

"I had this condition for 8 years and had to go every 6 mo. to remove the polyps (38 the first time and a few less thereafter) until I was down to once a year. I was having constant diarrhea also. I began taking 1 BOWEL BUILD , 2 BLACK CURRANT OIL , and 2 PARSLEY twice a day. The diarrhea stopped and I’m having two regular BM’s a day. At my annual check-up there was only 1 polyp and the Dr. said keeping doing what I’m doing. I certainly will." R.G.

"My son and I both have been taking the SUPER GLA  for three weeks and four weeks respectively. From what I thought, it would be like taking the BLACK CURRANT OIL and would take about six weeks to really get into our systems. My son has such a bad skin problem that he is already seeing some help though. With the weather getting cold several times his hands would have had small cracks that would bleed. That is embarrassing for someone working in a banking situation handling paperwork, trying to keep the blood off the paper. His back would even dryout, turn red and chapped looking and hurt. He would have to calculate when he excercised so that he only took one shower each day or his back would hurt something awful. After being on the Super GLA for three weeks, his hands don’t look terribly chapped but do lookdry. That is an improvement already." Ginny T.

"My 20-year-old son made it all through school with dyslexia. He couldn’t see certain letters. He never made better than a "C" on his report card. I’m so proud of him. He made it to community college this semester. He started using GINKGO – GOTU KOLA CONCENTRATE and NUTRI CALM . He found himself reading and writing better. For the first time in his life, he got two A’s – one in Western Civilization, the other in Calculus. I’m going to continue supplying him with these supplements to see if we can make even more progress." J.K.
