• YOU can become your own primary health care provider!

    Natural medicine is a vast improvement over contemporary care, but natural health is even better. My intent is to provide the tools and information you need in order to duplicate my successful experiences, and to offer you the comfort and peace of mind that has been such a blessing and security to my family.
  • Whatever form of natural health supplement you choose, be sure to educate yourself on all aspects of your health care. Let your diet and your attitude be the foundation for a life of wellness, not disease. When you don’t feel well, look for the root causes rather than seeking to simply substitute an herb or remedy for your medication. If you are taking medication for a serious condition, consult with someone well trained in herbs and alternatives before making a substitution and stopping your prescription. Your body will need time to reestablish it’s awareness that it is required to function!

FAQ: Are Herbs Really Safe?

I believe that most herbs commonly sold over the counter are safe for most people to use, but there are many that are of such poor quality that they can’t do you much good.

My only hesitation would be with those herbal combinations targeted to weight loss and “energy” boosting. Ma Huang, or Chinese ephedra, has gotten an undeserved, really bad rap from some of those formulas, most of which contain obscene amounts of caffeine, which is the real danger. Ma Huang is used in Chinese medicine to move blocked “chi”, or energy, which is really helpful in constrictive conditions like asthma. People who are really “uptight” often feel uncomfortable taking it because it gets things moving that they have tried to squash, which is why they sometimes get a little snippy. On the other hand, caffeine is addictive and causes major stress to the adrenal glands-which produce adrenalin, among a huge number of other hormones. Kola nut, guarana, green, red or black tea and many other plants can contain more caffeine than coffee, and concentrated or isolated caffeine and ephedra alkaloid extracts are also common additives.

I will not promote anything in my materials that I believe has any potential for harm.
