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.

EVERY PERSON benefits from daily: 

Super Shakes daily to increase protein, decrease sugar and chemical intake, and provide extra nutrition.

If needed:

Black Walnut Liquid Extract #1755-7 or ATC concentrate capsules #93-3 -eliminates parasites, high in minerals, especially iodine to nourish the thyroid. Parasites can be an underlying problem, aggravting nervousness, insomnia or irritability.

Lobelia  Extract #1765-8 – high in natural calcium, the most calming herb for nerves and muscles, helps  sleep, twitching, and asthma.

Ensure correct elimination (at least 2 bowel movements/day): Acidophilus, LB, Licorice or Slippery Elm if needed.

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. Consult a qualified herbalist or holistic to help guide you. Contact Benoit Health for assistance in selecting the best for your conditions and to ensure you get professional quality herbals at the best price.

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”

The Four Pillars of Health also relate to Weight Management see a  previous article to learn more .

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.

If you are interested in improving your health, please call our office, 250-748-6802. We can help you make the correct decisions to get the best quality, professional herbs and supplements that have been available since 1972! We have helped millions – why not you?!

RF Radio Frequency, Smart?? meters and your health

by LoreneB - July 24th, 2014

Recently Doctors Martin Pall and Paul Dart made an hour long presentation to the Oregon State Health Committee to present summaries of over 20,000 scientific research studies clearly pointing to health dangers of ever-increasing Radiation Frequency (RF).

Existing scientific research offers strong evidence that chronic exposure of the public to Radiation Frequency  transmissions produces  serious acute and chronic health effects to a significant portion of the population.

RF emissions  are coming from WiFi, SMART meters, cell phones, baby monitors, portable phones and cell towers, all on the increase , especially in NA, without thought to the short and long term consequences. More and more people are being diagnosed with Electro Hyper Sensitivity, and these are just the “canaries in the mineshaft”, alerting us all to what  are doing to ourselves.

Interestingly it is Europe where the majority of these studies have been conducted, as these countries have had mobile technology the longest: West Germany 1952, Sweden 1956 and USSR 1958. They are conducting these studies because they are concerned about the welfare and associated health care costs of their citizens, and some are moving away from mass RF exposure. A few examples are:

  • In 2008 the National Library of Europe removed their WIFI.
  • Shortly after several Medical Univesity Libraries, such as Sorbonne, also removed theirs.
  • In France, all  child care centres have had WIFI removed, as it has been proven that the RF effects are much more serious on developing brains.
  • In Spain, communities are being developed by people who do not want RF exposure – seeking valleys that can be protected by cell towers emissions.

Studies from  Egypt, Austria, Sweden, France, Denmark, Switzerland, Spain Israel, and Brazil, to name a few,  have shown definitively that the closer a person lives to  cell towers, the greater the incidence of the most commonly reported negative effects of excess RF exposure: autism, fertility, memory loss, dizziness, insomnia, headaches, and DNA damage leading to birth defects and cancers.

An Austrian extensive  study from 1984-1997, showed people living within 1200 meters of a cell phone tower  had an increase in breast cancer of 23 times greater  and brain cancer 121 times ! For learn about safe, effective cancer treatment and prevention, see Lorene Benoit’s book: The Paw Paw Program –  A Natural Approach to Cancer.

Rates of RF are thousands of times more than generally accepted safe standards, and still are, especially in North American outdated standards. This means that safety standards, controlled by industrial complex interests, are NOT protecting the public.

While Europe  is taking some positive steps to reduce RF radiation, North America seem to be finding every possible way to force more of it upon us! Local Hydro companies still spout the safety of Smart meters that a few of their scientists say are  safe, but there are thousands of doctors and scientists, not connected with their industry, that are showing us the truth. Educate yourself.

Changing Genetics with More Love?

by LoreneB - July 3rd, 2014

Dr. Bruce Lipton, in a lecture on Healing with the Masters, asks the question, “Do we have enough love?”

His findings are based on stem cells studies. Everyday we replace billions of our cells from embryonic cells, which we call stem cells. Dependent on what medium or culture in which the stem cells are grown will determine what type of cells they become, whether muscle, bone, fat or any other of many possible cells. Plus, whether they are healthy or abnormal cells. So, in a nutshell, our  genetics do not determine the outcome of the cells – it is the environment in which they are immersed.

One of the healthiest environments is one which is infused with love. Sick stem cells transferred into a healthy environment become well and vice versa.

Our human body is a community of fifty trillion cells living according to what the brain perceives.  The brain’s perception of the world controls the neurotransmitters which determine the chemistry of the blood, which determines the fate of our cells, so ultimately the brain controls our state of health. This concurs with epigenetics which states that environment controls the fate of genetics.

A mind in love and a mind in fear have two different chemistries which will affect the physical health of our cells, no matter what the genetics. Being in love releases dopamine, oxytocin, vasopressin. These chemicals grow exuberant  stem cells. Fear and stress hormones hinder healthy cellular growth.

Conscious mind (prefrontal cortex, about 10%)  has our wishes, desires for future & creativity. Sub conscious mind (about 90%) has the pre-recorded programs, habits, instincts and learned experiences, acquired in the first 7 years of our life through our observed environment and culture. It is this 90% subconscious which determines what the 10% conscious achieves.

Talking to your subconscious does NOT work – it is akin to talking to a CD player. The subconscious mind learns 3 ways: hypnosis, habituation (repetition & practice), and energy modalities that engage subconscious processes to reprogram it.

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, includes emotional healing as one of the 4 essential Pillars. The importance of loving support when dealing with any chronic health conditions is critical and is backed by more and more research from the field of quantum physics.

This book is full of  easy to read information that is critical to treatment and prevention of all chronic conditions, and achievement of optimum health.

FOCUS ON WHAT IS BEING BORN. As you reprogram your subconscious you effect the reality of the cells that create your future, as well as the evolution of all humanity.

Questions to Ask Your Doctor

by LoreneB - July 2nd, 2014

The following helpful questions are found on pages 163-164 of Lorene Benoit’s book: The Paw Paw Program – A “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally, 2nd Edition.

They can be and should be asked for any treatment options, no matter what your health condition is. 

Some questions to ask your doctor when a drug, protocol, diagnostic test, explorative surgery, or any medical treatment is recommended.

Please remember the doctor and any treatment recommended is paid by you, indirectly, via taxes; annually at least $3800 per man, woman and child in Canada. This is not including any MSP fees, prescription or other costs paid by you directly. Therefore, as you are paying the doctor, or in effect hiring him or her, you do have the right to know what you need to know to make an educated decision. Think if you were hiring a contractor to do renovations on your house – you would want the details, you would want to know that the person you hire is best suited for the job, that they would be familiar with your needs, know how to use their tools – you get the picture.
Wouldn’t you do the same for your car by making sure the mechanic is qualified, not doing anything to your car that is not necessary, and knows what needs to be fixed? Expect the same treatment for your body as you would for your house or your car.
Of course, our body is more complex than either a house or a car, but understand those treatments to which you agree and understand your options.

By taking this drug, following this treatment, having this surgery, following this recommendation….

What is the expected outcome?

How or why does it work? (ask for explanation in terms that you understand)

Can you tell me and/or give me a list of all possible side effects, to decide if the possible benefit outweighs the risks? Pharmacists will give you a small write-up for drugs; if you want more detail ask for the information from the CPS (Compendium Pharmaceutical & Specialties).

What are the percentages for side effects, re-occurrence, adhesions, damage from treatment, cure rate, life extension, etc.

Have you personally used it with other patients? What has been their response, incidence of side effects, increased life span, quality of life…..?

How long has this been approved and how long used?

Can you refer me to any studies that prove the effectiveness of this treatment option?

For what period of time will I be taking this drug, or following this treatment?
What is the likelihood that this will necessitate me taking other drugs or treatments to counteract side effects or enhance perceived benefit of treatments?

How will you determine if it is effective?

What is expected outcome if I do not choose this treatment option?

Do you mind if I do some research before I choose this route?

For other helpful suggestion when dealing with the medical system, and for especially for dealing with cancer, see  Lorene Benoit’s book: The Paw Paw Program – A “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally

Q & A: Rosacea

by LoreneB - July 1st, 2014

Question:

Is there anything you are aware of that causes rosacea? How would you treat rosacea? J.L. 

 

Answer:

Rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition which principally affects the face. Rosacea causes facial redness and produces small, red, pus-filled pustules (bumps). The condition worsens with time if left untreated. It can be mistaken for acne or psoriasis or some other skin allergy. 

Causes can be several, including  infection by a parasite that is a type of mite known as demodex, that infest the hair follicles and sebaceous ducts. (Dr Mark Dahl, Chairman of the Department of Dermatology at the University of Minnesota Medical School).

Another link is to Helicobacter  pylori bacteria that causes stomach ulcers. Herbal ULC-R or HP Fighter is very successful at eliminating this challenge, when taken for at least 3 bottles.

One of my Nature’s Sunshine Consultants had rosacea over ten years ago and in her research she found that the major cause of rosacea is inefficient protein digestion. This would result in undigested protein fermenting, creating toxins and causing inflammation.

The supplements that she took to cure her rosacea were:

Internally:

Protein Digest Aid , Vit E & Selenium,and Essential Fatty Acids  EFA’s) such as Super Oil,  containing Flax,  Evening Primrose Oil, Salmon oil, lecithin (only available in  Canada) or Super Omega 3 , available in most countries.

Black walnut liquid tincture, especially effective for parasitic infections including mites, ringworm, lyme, and staph infections.

Externally:

Apply the following 1-3 times per day:

Silver Gel or Aloe Vera Gel with Essential Oils (EOs): 2 drops Lavender, 1 drop Tea Tree Oil and 1 drop Eucalyptus.  Other Essential oil used successfully – any combination of which can be added are:  1 drop Oil of Oregano – very good anti-parasitic;  1 drop Helichrysum – prevents scarring; 1 drops Chamomile – anti-inflammatory and healing; and/or  2 drops Rose Geranium – hormonal balancing. These drops of EOs would be for one application, roughly 1/2 – 1 tsp., so you could make a larger batch for convenience. Nature’s Sunshine’s EOs are all  therapeutic quality and have so many uses in the Home Beauty and First Aid  kit. Contact us for full list and prices.

At the very least, just use Silver Gel, as this will helps with both inflammation and healing.

Others have used Black walnut liquid tincture externally, especially effective for mites, ringworm, lyme bites, staph and other parasitic infections.

You should see results within the month. Please contact our office to order any of the above, so you can be guaranteed quality products at the best price, with our professional support. If you decide to order direct, please use Canadian account # 309344 to get discount, but let us offer you personal service via our contact above or phone 250-748-6802.

Q & A: Making Herbal Salve & Sun Screens

by LoreneB - June 9th, 2014

Questions:

How are you doing? Over here (in Holland) everything is going great. A lot of nice warm days.

I am still usisng herbal preparations learned at your Intensive 2011!
I wanted to make my own sunscreen and after sun lotion. I searched the internet for recipes, a lot of possibilities, but a lot of ingredients. I remembered you didn’t use that much. I can only remember you used aloe vera and lavender or mint oil?
Do you have a recipe?

My Mom is also wanting to make some more of that great salve you sent us. I have looked at my notes, but need some clarification on oils used, how long, what temperature? Can you help?

 

Answer:

I am so thrilled to see others across Canada and Europe, who have taken my Herbal Intensives using the knowledge and making their own herbal preparations AND teaching others!  It is very empowering to have this knowledge and to be able to not only avoid toxic skin products, but to help your family as the primary care-giver for most health challenges!

Sorry, but as you may remember I don’t use recipes much. As you found, they are often too picky, require too many ingredients, and have so many different options it is enough to boggle the mind, get hung up in analysis paralysis and not make anything!

In my courses, I have people make many different preparations using general guidelines, so they understand the basics and the process. Then they can experiment and be empowered to use what is available to them. This is what I call wild-crafting, based on what you have available, and knowing that nature changes from year to year. The results can be exceptionally healing, as both you, your Mom and hundreds of others have seen & experienced.

For professional herbal consulting, in which I want the same recipe, same measurements, dosages and strengths, every time,  I use Nature’s Sunshine. They have several million dollar labs and equipment to test for active chemicals, potency, purity and to adjust for nature’s differences. Their quality is exceptional, which is why I have used it as the mainstay of myworldwide professional consulting.

I still feel it is good to know how to make you own preparations for your own use, so here are some reminders. Having had the 3-4 days experience, this should bring it all back to you.

 

SUNSCREEN:

You are right, I mixed St. John’s Wort oil with Aloe Vera Gel, either by blending the fresh plant, or purchasing a good quality Aloe Vera Gel.  And yes, Lavender essential oil is good to add – mint might be too strong for the skin. Other essential oils that are good for the skin are: Patchouli and Geranium, and Rose Bulgaria. I have used the Nature’s Sunshine essential oils and often 1-3 drops is enough – a little drop of a quality, therapeutic oil can be amazing. This oil is also beneficial if you happen to overdo the sun, which you should try to avoid, but it can happen.

The St. John’s Wort oil is made by infusing the flowers & top few leaves in an oil, by placing them in a glass jar in sunny window 2 – 6 wks. until it turns quite red. Make sure the plant material is covered in oil so there is no spoilage. As far as carrier oil used to extract the herbal principles, you can use olive oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, sunflower seed, almond, apricot are all OK. Then strain. This oil can also be used in the Salve preparation.

You can also infuse some flowers this way, such as wild rose petals, calendula or bergamot. These are not the same therapeutic value as essential oils which require expensive equipement to get the essence of the flowers and herbs, but they can add some aroma and healing properties.

Note on Sun exposure

Of course, use common sense in sun exposure – we try to avoid too much between 11am – 3pm and cover up when in the sun for extended periods. Your sun exposure should relate to the latitude and consequent strength of the sun; time of year; and your skin pigmentation.

The first two S’s of the Slip, Slap and Slop campaign, which I believe originated in Australia are good: Slip on some protective clothing, Slap on a Hat. These 1st two are the most important. The 3rd – slop on sunscreen is not good! Unless it is a natural sunscreen. To slop on a bunch of toxic chemicals, then add heat to this, is creating a toxic stew on your skin – the largest organ of your body. It is very absurd. In Australia studies found that as sunscreen sales increased, so did melanoma rates!

Common sense will always win out about chemical non-sense.

 

SALVE:

Specific for your questions:

How much oil? Use enough oil to make sure all herbs are immersed or covered – this will depend of type size of pot.

Oven for 8-12 hours 100-150degrees? – the lowest temperature the better, under 120 degrees is best; a low heat crock pot can also be used. This is the quick oil method. You can also use the slower sun-infused method as with St. John’s Wort oil above if you plan several weeks in advance.

Herbs to use:

We use any or all of these herbs from our garden and yard, many of which you can probably find growing around your area. I have given latin names which are always best to use for correct identification:

Mullein   - Verbascum thapsus 
Plantain (ribwort) – Plantago lanceolata or Plantago ovatum
Comfrey leaves or root – Symphytum species
chickweed (has to be dried a bit more, as it is pretty juicy) Stellaria media
Calendula (petals only – dried 24hrs.) Calendula officionalis
St. John’s Wort – Hyericum perfolatum
Yarrow flowers or leaves – Achilles millefolium
Burdock leaves – Arcticum lappa

Remember they can be dried for 1 day before putting them in oil, to avoid water being in oil. The drier herbs (plaintain) may not need this step. If you do have water in the oil after straining, try to boil it off, or otherwise eliminate it, or your oil or salve will not last as long.

Then do you remember the proportions of beeswax to solidify the oil into a salve?

Approximately 28 grams beeswax to 300 – 450 ml. oil or for the Americans, 1  ounce to 11 – 16 ounces. The more beeswax the stiffer the salve.

Let me know how it goes!
