Lowering Cholesterol Naturally

by LoreneB - December 18th, 2014

Hello Lorene:

I have been intending to get back to you to let you know that I received the NSP products. Mixing the LO-Clo with water wasn’t working for me so I began mixing it with my steel cut oats along with fruit and yogurt and I am enjoying it very much.
The amazing thing is that I just came from my Dr. appointment and my cholesterol has gone down to 3.1 from 8 a couple of months ago. It is the lowest it has ever gone, after only 1 month on the LoClo. I showed the Lo-Clo to my doctor and she said to keep doing what I am doing as she was very impressed. I did take  lipator sporadically the past couple of months, but because of the leg cramps it was causing I didn’t take them on a regular basis. I will now only take the Lo-Clo along with my exercise program, water and healthy eating and I am feeling great. I have another blood test scheduled for the third week in February where my Dr. will check magnesium levels, cholesterol etc. etc.. I will let you know how it is all working for me. I am so happy you chose to visit the Island View. Thank you for all your help.

Have a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year.


Herbs ARE Effective – Science Recognizes 5000+ Years History

by LoreneB - November 30th, 2014

Below are 3 quotes from learned people that give us food for thought about keeping an open mind and looking outside the box on many “accepted” ideas:

“This ‘telephone’ has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us.” - Western Union internal memo, 1876

“I think there is world market for maybe five computers” -Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM, 1943

640K ought to be enough for anybody.” – Bill Gates, 1981

It is as hard to believe that these statements were taken seriously,  as it that people once believed that the world was flat. Or that rampant cell growth, aka cancer,  can only be treated with surgery, chemical poisons or radiation. This gives you some idea why the title of Lorene Benoit’s book on healing is named:  The Paw Paw Program – A “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally.

Having  been in the natural health field since 1974, and seriously using herbs since 1980, it is very heartening to see science supporting traditional healing more every day. Not that I need the proof, having seen life changing results with natural healing for thousands of people,  but this may help move the public toward a better understanding of why herbal healing is still around after more than 5000 years. And why it is important to look outside the box and learn to take more control of our own health for a healthier, happier life!

New research from Thailand indicates curcumin may be as effective as ibuprofen in relieving osteoarthritis pain.      

In a study involving 367 patients (mean age 60 years) with knee osteoarthritis, subjects were randomized into two groups who received either ibuprofen (1,200 mg/day) or a turmeric extract (75-85% total curcuminoids, 1,500 mg/day) for four weeks. Treatment efficacy was assessed via the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC®) total, WOMAC pain, WOMAC stiffness and WOMAC function scores.

Comparison of WOMAC scores showed significant improvement from baseline in both the ibuprofen and curcumin groups, with no significant difference between the two groups. While both treatments were generally well tolerated, there were fewer reports of adverse gastrointestinal side-effects in the curcumin group. These findings are consistent with previous research showing curcumin to be similar or more effective than ibuprofen in efficacy and much safer for all forms of inflammation.

References: Kuptniratsaikul V, Thanakhumtorn S, et al. Efficacy and safety of Curcuma domestica extracts in patients with knee osteoarthritis.
Clin Interv Aging 2014 Mar 20;9:451–8.doi:10.2147/CIA.S58535

Nature’s Sunshine Cure-Q-Min contains 400 mg of curcuminoids provided by the internationally recognized Curcumin C3 Complex®. This ingredient is patented for its unique composition ratio of the bioactive curcuminoids (95%) extracted from turmeric roots. The Curcumin C3 Complex® is highly regarded in the clinical literature for consistency, quality and integrity of the three main antioxidant and protective compounds found in turmeric root, collectively known as curcuminoids. It has the been the clinical trial material of choice for a significant number of research studies investigating its protective, antioxidant and inflammation-mediating effects.


Stress is far worse for cardiovascular health than cholesterol will ever be

Dr. Stephen Sinatra ( no, not Frank) , MD, FACN tells us clearly shows that emotions have a tremendous effect on our physical health. He lists five of the most common negative emotions: Anger, Sadness, Heartbreak, Stress  and Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). I love that last one – anytime enough people have similar challenges, an new “disorder” is created, usually to promote a new drug to treat the new disorder.

What these 5 stressful emotions have in common is that they all produce hormones such as cortisol, adrenaline and nor-adrenaline. Among other effects, these hormones  thicken the blood, and create inflammation. So instead of ingesting rat poison, aka blood thinners, consider reducing these negative emotions and supplementing your diet with  a good quality Stress Formula (CA)/ Nutri Calm (US), which contain both herbs and B Vitamins. Besides helping reduce the physical effects of stress, this formula  also helps lower homocysteine levels related to Cardiovascular health.

Stress related emotions also decrease essential mineral such as Potassium  and Magnesium, two essential minerals which help regulate heart beat and kidney output. Chinese Mineral Chi Tonic is one of the best synergistic formulas to help balance these minerals AND deal with stress, while increasing our vital energy.

Drugs accomplish nothing long-term to reducing stress, but there are many things you can incorporate into your life that will. Read how Dr. Bruce Lipton has shown how just one emotion such as love can physically change our genetic fate.

One simple exercise to begin today is the Gratitude Attitude – a recent Harvard study stated that saying 3 specific things per day for which you are grateful have been shown to decrease our metabolic age by 10 years in only 21 days! Other tips for emotional healing are included in Chapter 6 of Lorene Benoit’s book: The Paw Paw Program – The “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally.


Ten Scientific Studies Prove that Genetically Modified Food Can Be Harmful To Human Health

The data “clearly underlines adverse impacts on kidneys and liver, two of our major detoxifying organs, as well as different levels of damages to heart, adrenal glands, spleen and haematopoietic system,” reported Gilles-Eric Séralini, a molecular biologist at the University of Caen.

Human health, of course, is of primary import to us, but ecological effects are also in play. Ninety-nine percent of GMO crops either tolerate or produce insecticides. This may be the reason we see bee colony collapse and massive butterfly deaths.  If GMOs are wiping out earth’s pollinators, they are far more disastrous than the threat they pose to humans and other mammals.


Vitamin C works on chicken pox, measles, polio – and without harmful side effects.

Dr. Frederick Klenner graduated from Duke University School of Medicine in 1936. In the “Clinical Guide to the Use of Vitamin C”, Dr. Lendon H. Smith outlines numerous cases on how Dr. Klenner quickly cured a variety of viral diseases by the use of intravenous vitamin C.

He reports of a ten month old baby with high fever, watery nose, dry cough, red eyes and rash characteristic of measles. Dr Klenner gave the baby 1,000 milligrams (mg) of vitamin C every four hours and the temperature dropped, the cough stopped and the rash disappeared.

Another eight-year-old child with measles developed encephalitis, became stuporous and responded only to pain. He quickly cured the child by both intravenous and oral vitamin C.

A 23 year old man with mumps developed swollen testicles, the size of tennis balls, along with overwhelming pain. After 1,000 mg of intravenous vitamin C the pain subsided. During the next 24 hours he was given 2,000 mg of intravenous C every two hours. His fever returned to normal in 36 hours and he was up and about in 60 hours.

Dr. Lendon Smith describes how Klenner discovered that intravenous C could also quickly dry up chicken pox lesions and subdue viral hepatitis.

But Dr. Klenner’s most important study involved the great polio epidemic of 1948-50. He successfully treated 60 polio victims using intravenous doses of vitamin C, up to 200,000 mg every 12 hours for four days. None developed paralysis. He soon learned that the sicker the patient the higher the dose required.

So we need to ask ourselves:

  • are we prepared to accept age old remedies that are now being proven by “science”, and even those that have stood the test of millennium but may never get funded by big pharma to prove they work?
  • how simple and inexpensive ate these remedies  compared to the cost and damaging side effects of pharmaceuticals and mass vaccination with toxic ingredients?
  • what can we do to keep our immune systems strong so that we do not offer ourselves as a host to germs and viruses that we are all exposed to on a daily basis?
  • why would we not WANT to take safe and affordable steps to ensure our optimum health?

Time to be pro-active about healthy living and successful aging! You may choose to start by taking this simple Health Assessment, then  contact the author with your score to help develop a plan of action to improve your health on a daily basis. It is your life and your health – embrace it!

Q & A: Paw Paw for other conditions

by LoreneB - November 27th, 2014


Hi Lorene,

Is Paw Paw effective for people without cancer?

Thanks, Shelley


Yes, as explained in my book, The Paw Paw Program – a Natural Approach to Cancer  and on many of my website articles, Paw Paw, Asimina triloba, is anti-parasitic, anti- fungal and anti-viral. Because of these actions, it is included in cleanses such as  Para Cleanse (US).  The Canadian Para Pak does not contain Paw Paw, although it can be added. Both 10 day cleanses are effective and recommended for everyone for optimal health as part of seasonal cleansing program.

It can also be applied topically and taken internally for warts, moles, fungal rashes, and other skin growths. For this use it can be mixed with Silver Gel, Black Ointment (US) or similar healing salve.

As it prevents reproduction of  organisms that  are precursors to abnormal cell growth, such as cancer; it can also be used as a preventative on a periodic basis with guidance of a knowledgeable practitioner.

It is not an essential core nutrient to be taken daily by everyone, such as vitamins, minerals, enzymes and superfoods.

Hope this answers your question. If not contact us directly, which is also your best option should you choose to order any of the mentioned herbal therapeutics in this article. We can provide the best price as well as support.

The Most Important Organ – Really?

by LoreneB - November 18th, 2014

One day the body got together and decided to have a board meeting. Here’s what went on behind closed doors.

There was an intensive discussion to determine WHO WAS THE MOST          IMPORTANT PART OF THE BODY.

The BRAIN was the first to speak. “Without me nothing would be          accomplished.”

The HEART spoke up. “Without me pumping blood to your brain, you could   not function.”

The ARMS laughed. “You’re both wrong; without me to put food in the          mouth, nothing would work.”

The STOMACH said, “Without me, your food would not digest.”

The LUNGS bellowed back. “Without me, you couldn’t breathe.”

The EYES blinked, “Without me, you could not see.”

The KIDNEYS snorted, “Without me, you could not detoxify and eliminate.”

Then the COLON meekly spoke up, “I am important. You need me to          eliminate all of the garbage from your systems.”

Everyone one laughed and made fun of him.

“How can you be as important as we are? You are just a smelly old sewer.”

The poor colon- his feelings were hurt! He turned away and thought, “I’ll          show them. HE SHUT DOWN!

Then he sat back and watched what happened.

The BRAIN was stupefied and could not concentrate on anything.

The HEART’S beat was weak and irregular; it was too tired to pump oxygen.

The ARMS were weak, heavy and couldn’t move.

The LUNGS- their breathing was shallow. They couldn’t get enough oxygen because the heart was too tired to send them fresh blood or take away the carbon dioxide.

The KIDNEYS quit – urine started backing up, the legs started swelling, the skin developed a rash and the back hurt.

Then the COLON looked around and decided it was time to call another          meeting. It wasn’t too lively this time, but everyone was in totally agreement.


A healthy body eliminates via the colon 2-3 times daily – if you are not doing this, you can kickstart your health with a detox program now. This Why Detoxify article will explain more about why this is so critical to all health and healing.

In Lorene Benoit’s book,   The Paw Paw Program – A Christopher Columbus Approach to Cancer”, she teaches people to understand the importance of keeping the colon in good health, for all disease prevention, including  cancer.


Why Detoxify?

by LoreneB - November 17th, 2014


Simply stated, disease will not survive in a body that is oxygenated, is pH balanced, has a clean, toxin free liver, a vibrant lymphatic and a strong immune system.  In other words have a clean, healthy and well-nourished body to keep disease at bay.

In the book “Bio-Nutrition – Winning the War Within” by Dr. Ray Strand, he states that all diseases start decades before raising their ugly heads.  It is the accumulative effect of our bad habits for years previous that eventually catches up to us.  A lifetime of eating the wrong foods, too little exercise, smoking, alcohol and caffeine consumption, unnecessary drug use, stress and air pollution will eventually take its toll.  We seem to think we are invincible.

Detoxifying our body is one step in the prevention of disease & weight loss.  If there are too many chemicals in the foods we eat, in the liquids we drink, in the air we breathe and with poisons coming in contact with our skin, our liver will not be able to keep up with the job of detoxifying for years and years on end.  It gets tired.  Did you know that it takes 24 hours for your liver to detoxify one cup of coffee?  Consider all the other toxins your body comes in contact with in a day.  The liver cannot handle all of it so it stores it in our fat cells hoping to get to it later. Do you see why you cannot lose weight?  Our body needs the fat as storage compartments for toxins!

Consider all that is referred to as a “cancer hit.”  These are the toxic preservatives, artificial flavours and other man made chemicals found in the foods we eat, the bus and car fumes we breathe in and the first or second hand smoke.  It’s the personal care products we use on our skin everyday and the clothes we wear made with chemicals and dyes and laundered in chemicals to keep them ‘clean.’  Everywhere we turn; our bodies are exposed to major disease hits.  We can easily be exposed to 25 chemicals before breakfast, so we are in big trouble by day’s end.

Lorene Benoit’s  book:  The Paw Paw Program – A Christopher Columbus Approach to Cancerteaches people to understand the causes of cancer and necessary steps for health. With this this knowledge one can take preventative steps as well as  learning the natural approach to treatment if one already has cancer. This book is for everyone – what applies to cancer applies to ALL chronic health conditions!

After a period of time, our liver becomes full of the toxins that it was not able to detoxify and the lymph becomes a swamp of toxins and heavy metals when it tries to help.  One of the liver’s functions is to clean blood and return it to the heart where it can be pumped to all the cells with nourishment.  Instead, the cells are being fed toxins.  Keep in mind that this same toxic mess in your blood travels to all parts of your body, including your brain.  Want to know why you are forgetful with poor long and short-term memory loss?  Yes, these toxins are in your brain cells.

The kidneys, another major eliminative organ and chemical balancer, also become stressed.

One way of helping the liver, lymphatic system and kidneys is to allow our bodies to sweat.  We however, clog our sweat pores with anti-perspirants and chemical laden soaps in our showers and baths, and in addition, add even more toxins by drinking and washing in chlorinated water.  When the lymphatic system is full of toxins and is unable to rid of them, these toxins begin to leach back into our body.  Then the immune system gets involved, trying to fight these toxins.  Due to the heavy toxic load, it cannot possibly manage and becomes stressed along with the liver kidneys and lymph.

We now have a perfect scenario for disease.


  • Help your body to detoxify by doing a 10- 30 day overall body cleanse at least 2X/year. We use both individual programs and packaged herbal cleanses to simplify this. Contact our office to get you started safe detoxing today.
  • Use fibre in your diet.  Drink lots of water.  Add mineral and antioxidant supplements.
  • Cut back on the toxins your body comes in contact with.  Every small bit helps.
  • Include physical and spiritual exercise daily for body, mind and soul. KEEP CLEAN!
  • Consider a foot detoxification spa, infra red sauna, or epsom salt and baking soda bath to fast track detoxifying the lymphatic system.
  • Replace toxic chemicals in the home and personal care products. Use: NS Concentrate biodegradable cleanser, Irish Moss Lotion, Crystal Clear Deodorant spray (Canada only), Silver Gel, Nature’s Fresh Enzyme Spray - for odors, stains, pain, skin – many uses!

Contact our office if you have questions about cleansing, or would like recommendations for a cleanse tailored to your needs: email us at  and ask for cleansing information.We believe in personal service.

And for optimum health, follow the lifestyle & dietary recommendations in Lorene Benoit’s  book:  The Paw Paw Program – A Christopher Columbus Approach to Cancer

To your health!

Anxiety and Mood Disorders

by LoreneB - November 2nd, 2014

The number of people I hear from that are suffering from anxiety and mood disorders seems to be  increasing all the time.  Young and old, Mom’s and Dad’s …..well you get the picture.  I am so pleased that Nature’s Sunshine Products (NSP) launched their newest herbal formula, Zerenity™in Canada.

The effectiveness of this product has already been shown in the US, under the name of Anxiousless - same formula, different name.  Several clients have already been ordering from the US Zerenity™ (Anxiousless in the US), with very positive results, since it was launched in the US last summer.  Having it available now in Canada, approved by Health Canada,  will make the world of difference for many of people suffering from varying levels anxiety, stress, nervousness and depression.

I had the opportunity to learn more about Zerenity™ on a great NSP Webinar® presentation by Dr. Mathew Tripp, Director of Research, and must say I am impressed with the level of research that has gone into producing this formula. We also heard many great testimonials at Ottawa Conference Oct. 2014,  how this product was helping people to:

  • focus better when under stress
  • get projects finished – less procrastinating
  • sleep better
  • be happier

 One person’s story:After just 20 days, my short and long term memory, concentration and focus, sense of being grounded, and sleep have improved so much !  I feel like the clock has rolled back 20 years ! “
With Love and Gratitude,    Lucy Taylor

 Zerenity™ is formulated to help those experiencing acute stress and nervousness to find quick relaxation and calm.   It has also been found to improve focus and executive thinking, and can be used daily for those suffering with acute anxiety, or occasionally when you need help  to cope with those stressful situations or days.  Having a bottle on hand just seems to be a good idea. 

See related article on ADD, ADHD, Anxiety, & GAD.
Dr. Tripp outlined the solid base of independent and NSP based research on all the ingredients individually, as well as this patented formula.  Zerenity is formulated around the patented botanical ingredient known as Zembrin®, or Sceletium tortuosum, a South African herb with more than 300 years of documented indigenous use to support the nervous system and produce feelings of calm and relaxation in healthy people.   NSP’sZerenity formula also contains the amino acid L-theanine, vitamin B1, magnesium, and zinc as supportive ingredients.  Zerenity works on three separate neurological pathways in the brain, making it very effective and without the common side effects of pharmaceutical drugs.  Dr. Tripp also indicated that, in their studies, there have been no adverse effects when combined with pharmaceutical anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications.
What is even better, for those of you that care about the indigenous people that brought Sceletium tortuosum to the western world, the ingredient Zembrin® has been developed and produced as an environmentally sustainable and socially responsible initiative with the South African San Council.   For more information about Zerenity™ or Anxiousless  please  contact our office.

ADD, ADHD, Anxiety, GAD, Nervousness

by LoreneB - August 18th, 2014

There are several different labels relating to hyperactive, unfocused or anxious children and adults. ADD  (Attention Deficit Disorder), ADHD, (Attention Deficit HyperActive Disorder), GAD (General Anxiety Disorder) are some of the plethora of disorders and syndromes that have been labelled to be treated with yet another drug. It is preferable to avoid the use of labels , and just help create balance physically, mentally and emotionally.

In Lorene Benoit’s book: The Paw Paw Program – The “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally , Chapter 6 – The Road to Wellness – The Four Pillars of Health covers what she feels are four critical pillars to optimum health and prevention of all chronic conditions.

There is considerable information available on how to treat all of these conditions naturally, which is the preferred method for long lasting positive results. Drug treatments such as Ritalin do not address the root causes and have many negative side effects, which will affect  long term health.

The first pillar is a healthy diet, definitely a concern with any behavioural or psychological challenge. Eliminating sugar and artificial additives and chemicals is a great place to start. Guidelines, suggestions and some recipes are in the book as well as on this website:  Optimum Health Diet.

Dietary changes to whole, non-processed mild food diet, along with herbal aids will make a noticeable difference within weeks! Food allergies may be contributing to the challenge; Muscle Response Testing can be used to determine this. Many educational references are available from the author.

The second pillar is Exercise and the third is Emotional/ Spiritual. Some specific suggestions  are listed briefly below under Other Considerations.

The fourth pillar is Supplementation. Children and adults who experience challenges are often nutritionally deficient in several areas, and will benefit from supplementation. A full spectrum of nutrients is required to lead normal, healthy, active children’s lives. Even with an excellent  diet, optimum nutritional levels are very difficult to achieve through diet alone. And the SAD diet (Standard American Diet) is woefully deficient.

Herbal formulas  have proven successful because they are nutritionally dense powerhouses. Below are some that have been particularly effective for these conditions:

Choose one of the following for balancing, depending on what is most needed: 

Focus ATN, # 1833-4, contains Gingko, Melissa and DMAE. It encourages restful, balanced mental activity, and helps focus attention.

Anxiousless (US) or Zerenity (CA) #1167-9, a herbal, amino acid and mineral combination containing Sceletium tortuosum, a South African herb, has been thoroughly studied for safety
and efficacy in comprehensive  clinical studies. It reduces acute stress, nervousness and promotes relaxation very quickly, with only capsule per day.

STR-J #1087-0, herbal formula that calms and nourishes the nervous system. Contains: chamomile, passion flower, hops, fennel, marshmallow and feverfew. This can also be opened and made into a tea, or is available as a liquid formula in the US.

ADD 1 multi vitamin, plus some extra minerals or 2 of the following for daily nutrition:

SynerPro Super Vitamins & Minerals # 4057-9 complete balanced formula in tablet form    OR

Chewable Multi Vitamins & Minerals # 1722-9 complete balanced formula in chewable form

Mineral Chi Tonic # 1818-3 – all macro & trace minerals plus adaptogen herbs to support adrenals & balance the body.

Magnesium # 1786-6 – the relaxing mineral, made more potent by addition of high magnesium herbs for better assimilation.

For nerve and brain nutrition, choose one of:

As the brain is composed of almost 50% fats, Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are just that – essential!   Super Oil # 8235-8 , Flax Seed Oil #1770-3 or Super Omega 3 # 1515-7. Omegas provide EFAs for correct nerve transmission and nourishment, inflammation from ever-excitement,hormonal balancing and more.

There are other herbs and natural treatments which may be required to balance nervous system, adrenals, liver or other systems. All programs need to consider the individual.

The following are some possible root causes:

  • food allergies; leaky gut
  • chemical sensitivities & imbalances
  • parasites; heavy metals
  • imbalanced nervous system
  • constipation
  • hypoglycemia, hyperinsulinimia – i.e. blood sugar imbalance
  • deficient or imbalanced neurotransmitters – the electricity for many functions. We need adequate amino acids to create them. Those most involved in these conditions and the required amino acids are: Serotonin – tryptophan; Epinephrine – tyrosine; Dopamine – phenyalanine and GABA – glutamine.

Did you know that more serotonin is produced in  the colon than in the brain? Instead of anti-depressants, more people could be happier and healthier to ensure their colon is clean and working daily, rather than spending billions on damaging chemical anti-depressants.

Other considerations as part of Pillar two and three:

  • eliminate or restrict TV, wireless, RF and EMF exposure, which have negative influences on the brain wave patterns, growth and behaviour
  • encourage more exercises and games to encourage healthy communication between all family members
  • establish routine and schedules in the child’s life, for a stabilizing effect
  • assure the child or adult of unconditional love audio learning programs to compensate for possible visual challenges, plus therapy to correct those such as “floating letters”

Garcinia Cambogia and Weight Loss

by LoreneB - August 5th, 2014

I have been asked about this several times since the Dr. Oz show –  Garcinia cambogia is the hot new kid on the block for weight loss. So here are my comments, based on 35 years of knowledge.

Yes, I have worked with this herb for over 20 years. We had a great Garcinia Combination in Canada 15 or more years ago that did not sell enough – where was Dr. Oz then?, but it is still available in the US. We also have an excellent drink stick that is so convenient and tasty – and helps you to drink more water which is critical to healthy weight loss. Stixated - available in many countries.

I think anyone on weight loss should also take Collatrim Plus, to ensure muscle and skin tone during weight loss. Also helps you sleep better – lose while you snooze!

And no,  I do not believe that you should not change your diet OR do exercise – we should be talking about health, not just weight loss. For healthy tips please be sure to read Weight Loss/Insulin Resistance , as well as other articles written on weight manangement. 

In Lorene Benoit’s book, The Paw Paw Program – A “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer...there are many dietary suggestions, recipes and an entire chapter on the Four Pillars of Health – all as essential to weight loss as they are to cancer and all chronic conditions.
