• 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!

Q&A: Leg Cramps

Question:
I have a friend who is cramping in her legs only at night, when she relaxes. She has been eating mostly greens and fruits, no oils, for 10 days to get rid of candida, as well as taking the Nature’s Sunshine recommended herbs (capril., pau darco, flora force). She’s on the 3rd day, just struggling with the cramps. Any advice?

Answer:
Cramping is usually a magnesium deficiency or magnesium/calcium ratio imbalance, which should not be a problem if she is eating mostly greens. Dehydration is the first thing to check for, and the lack of fats could be removing enough lubrication to stiffen up the joints when she stops moving. Only other thing I can think of is that if she is eating primarily greens she may be excessively alkaline, enough to be causing a protein deficiency that is stressing the muscles.
