Herbal First Aid with Essential Oils

by LoreneB - February 17th, 2014

These are 5 pure essential oils, plus one blend that we have come to love over the last 25 years using Aromatherapy as part of our natural healing regime.

1. Lavender - Good on burns, sunburns, scrapes bruises and insect bites – one of the few essential oils that can be applied to skin “neat”, or undiluted. We love it added to Aloe Vera Gel for all skin challenges, including dry skin, sunburn,  itchy skin, PLUS it helps deter insects!

2. Lemon - Detoxifies the body, purifies drinking water and, along with peppermint and lavender, helps fight allergies. Can also be used in natural insect repellant.

3. Peppermint - Helps relieve headaches when used with lavender, sharpens mentality and is also useful for conditions such as asthma, diarrhea, indigestion, heartburn and itchy skin. Some people are senstive to Peppermint oil, so it is best mixed with a carrier oil, Aloe Vera Gel or other lotion.

Taken internally, peppermint is a great digestive aid. One or two drops of pure peppermint oil can be put in water as a pre or post meal drink.

4. Frankincense - Good for insect bites, headaches and tension. Has been used with healthy carrier oil for massage for breasts with abnormal growths. This is included in The Paw Paw Program, A “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer Can Be Treated Naturally, by Lorene Benoit.

5. Tea Tree Oil  -    An Antiseptic, Anti-fungal, Tissue Healer with many uses:

Externally:  apply directly or dilute with olive oil – boils burns, cankers, cold sores, cuts, earaches, lice, thrush, ticks, leeches, pimples, bites, fungus.

Internally: Candida, infections, bacterial and viral – advice of health professional & small drops.


And lastly, one of my favourite oil blends  is Tei Fu Oil, a powerful combination of  Safflower (Carthamus tinctorius,  L-menthol, eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus), DL-camphor, lavender (Lavandula officinalis), wintergreen (Gualtheria procumbens) , clove (Syzygiumaromaticum). Some its many uses include:

Externally: (1-4 drops on affected area) Ideal for burns, bites, stings, headache (temples and neck), stiff neck, arthritis pain, tooth-ache, itching, motion sickness, toe fungus.

Internally:  (1-2 drops back of tongue, or in water) Ideal for colds, coughs, allergies, sore throat, sinus, stuffy nose, vomiting, studying (perks up brain), motion sickness, flu, fever, headache.

Of course, there are others! If you would like my free document with a brief description of over 20 Essential oils and blends, with their uses and benefits, please contact our office, and ask for Petunia Patchouli EOs .

To obtain results with Essential Oils, they need to be of therapeutic quality, which includes proper sourcing, identification, processing and laboratory testing. Essential oils that do not meet these standard may have a pleasant aroma, but will not offer the active chemicals that effect true healing for which aromatherapy is known.

Therapeutic quality oils are available via this office. Contact us for support and preferred discount pricing.



People World Wide are Waking UP!

by LoreneB - February 17th, 2014

People world wide are realizing we have to stop believing the “big guys” are looking out for us!

More and more people are waking up to these facts:


  • Vaccines are myths that are making billions for big pharma and destroying our health, slowly but surely – this will of course, mean bigger profits for more drugs as our immune systems are weakened. Please see articles that explain vaccine safety issues and present safer ways to strengthen your immune system!


  • Wireless technology -  the latest addition of digital ?smart? meters (what a huge misnomer!!) is destroying our health and privacy, while costing us MORE money!  This article is just too good to not post: WHO KNEW? The Wireless Smart Meter Meltdown


Please contact our office for expert support and access to wholesale accounts for Nature’s Sunshine Products, THE  professional quality herb and supplement company of choice, since 1972. In health!



Q & A – Paw Paw, myeloma, chemo & other herbs

by LoreneB - February 8th, 2014



My husband has multiple myeloma.  We have been trying to avoid conventional regime. His is very aggressive. Some success and some not. He is 50 so may have high (IL-6 overexpression). Wondering about Paw Paw to help keep the cancer cells from being resistant to herbs, Vit C etc. Thanks. Jennifer


Absolutely, I know Paw Paw helps in all types of cancer. I would not say it stops cancer from being resistant to herbs though. In fact, I feel it is THE most effective herb available that I know if in my 35 years herbalism, and the science testing supports this. Perhaps you meant that Paw Paw inhibits chemo resistance? This is explained in my book and on the website.
The book can be ordered fastest and least expensive, by emailing us directly with all necessary information and payment, or you can order on the above site via PayPal.
this depends on dosage of Vit. C
If you wish 10 free minutes by phone, you need to send me your ph # as I am out of the country and do not have a number for you to call me. No charge, I have a computer phone which will come up as a California#. 9:30 PST is good for me.

Q&A: Gall Bladder

by LoreneB - January 29th, 2014


Hello Lorene, I have been having a gall-bladder issue for almost a year along with other problems, and I am wondering if you would be able to help?  Please also put me on your list for free natural health newsletter.  FD, BC



Yes, we could, as we have helped others with Gall bladder issues.  Of course, every case is different and I would need more detail about issues you are having.

Some general tips may be found on my website blog under Liver article archives; especially the last one, as challenges with gall bladder often start with liver:

There is a Gall bladder flush, but I would need more information to recommend this. We can schedule a free 10 min. appointment to see if this helps; for more in-depth issues you may need to book more time. If you wish to do this, please send  3 days and times that will work for you; I will try to call you at one of these times.

Here are two general formulas that may benefit you, but there is a lot more that can be done in addition to taking  herbs.
BP-C (Blood Purifier Chinese for weakened Liver/gall bladder)  and    LIV-C   (LIver Cleanser Chinese for stressed liver/gall bladder).
The healthful changes that one should undertake to improve ALL health conditions are very clearly explained in my book:  The Paw Paw Program – The “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally. As well, extensive dietary recommendations are given to help people understand how to eat better. Some recipes are also included.
Please contact us if you wish to obtain either of these formulas or the book, and thank you for contacting us – we are here to help!

Q&A – Scleroderma, Dermatomyositis

by LoreneB - January 19th, 2014


I have been recently diagnosed with scleroderma and dermatomyositis. I have been trying to control my symptoms with diet, but the Drs are now telling me that my heart is being damaged from the muscle disease and I have to start taking some extremely strong medication which has a side effect of causing cancer. I, of course, do not want to go that route so I am wondering if you have any suggestions that might help.
Thank you for your time. CJ



Dear CJ,
Sorry to hear about your health challenges. What the docs have to offer is totally unacceptable – choose between heart damage or cancer? No thank you!

There ARE safer and better options. For something this complex, a free 10 minutes or quick email will not likely be of much benefit, but if you send your phone number, I will contact you to see what we can do.  After that it is $1 per  minute, minimum $25. We offer these reasonable fees, as we feel good health should be accessible to everyone.

I will also email you a questionnaire to complete before our 10 mins. and you can either email it back to me, or give me the totals when we speak.

Both of these conditions, in fact most dis-ease, including cancer,  involve inflammation and immunity. This is well explained in my book. It is packed with easy to understand life style suggestions including diet, food choices, pH, recipes, exercise, emotional health and stress, so this could be an invaluable aid to help you  “work with diet”. You can read about it and order on this Paw Paw Program page.

The one general suggestion I would make for inflammation and immunity that helps SO MANY conditions is Zambroza (Canada)and Thai Go (US). With 13 herbs blended for maximum effectiveness, many people get very quick results with many conditions including those you have, fibromyalgia, arthritis, MS and cancer. Please let me know if you would like to try two months of this, as I know you would feel the difference. We can discuss getting this for you at the best price once you email your phone number and we talk.

Q&A: Hepatitis C

by LoreneB - January 12th, 2014


What would you suggest a person take for Hep C?  My husband  was diagnosed 6 years ago.  We’ve done well with our program, however the Doc still wants him to do the Interferon to kill the Hep C Virus. He did 2 Tiao He cleanses in December, then a Candida cleanse, then a Bod E Cleanse.  His blood work that just came back was the best ever! Took a month to build, then another Tiao He, and now another Bod E Klenz. When he’s not cleansing he takes Concentrated Milk Thistle Extract, Maca, Greenzone, Omega Oils, Probiotics, Mineral Chi, Liquid Chlorophyl and various other things as needed. Just wondering what might kill the Hep C Virus??  submitted by DS, BC.
HRP-C and/or LYM-X  and ???


I think your husband is doing an excellent program! It is a general rule of thumb that any cleansing should be balanced by double of building, toning. So doing a 10-15 day Tiao He Cleanse, followed by a builder such as Milk Thistle Time Release Concentrate for double the length of time is smart.
Bod-E Klenz is safe to take longer term as it already has the 2:1 ration of build and cleanse built into the 30 day package.
HRP-C  (called VS-C in US) is an excellent Chinese combination that can be taken to strengthen and balance the immune system, while helping the liver to detoxify. It was created by a Chinese medical doctor specifically for viruses, so is an excellent choice for ongoing maintenance of hepatitis, shingles, herpes, AIDS and Mononucleosis to name a few.
I would think very carefully before undergoing interferon treatment, as the toxic side effects can be devastating. Remember what is supposed to be the medical maxim: DO NO HARM. I would add to this, “why fix it if it isn’t broken?” Sometimes doctors feel a need to prescribe treatment, even when someone is well, as they are not trained to understand how people can heal themselves naturally.
Lastly, I would make sure that in addition to using this excellent herbal program, you are both following the extensive dietary and lifestyle recommendations given in Lorene’s book: The Paw Paw Program – The “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally.
The easy to read explanations help people understand how to eat better, why it is critical to eliminate sugar, pH balance, stress and emotions, and exercise. All the four pillars of health are covered  that are so critical to optimum health and prevention of all chronic conditions and diseases.
Keep up the progress and keep us posted. It is always encouraging to see people taking positive steps for their better health and life!

Q&A: Menopause, Peri-menopause, FSH

by LoreneB - January 10th, 2014


Hello. I am a healthy female & will be 52 this June. my FSH level is 104 & have not had a period since Sept. Is this considered post-menopause? Thank you. MC



FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) is a hormone produced in the pituitary gland,  to prepare female ovarian cells for fertilization. In men, FSH stimulates sperm division.  Secretion of all our hormones is based on complex interactions, so  FSH levels are connected with progesterone,  estrogen (primarily estradiol) , LH (Lutenizing Hormone) , Inhibin B, and GnRH (Growth Regulating Hormone).

If you were younger and these levels were this high, it could be an indication of infertility or other challenges.  At age 52  it is normal  for FSH to increase, as we are coming to the end of child bearing years.

Ranges are:

  • Women who are menstruating: 4.7 – 21.5 mIU/ml
  • Postmenopausal: 25.8 – 134.8 mIU/ml

You are more likely still in the stage called peri-menopause, as it has only been 4 months since your last period. Post menopause  generally means  menstruation has ceased for more than one year.

During peri-menopause, hormone levels, menstruation, hot flashes and moods may vary considerably. The better health you are in overall, the less you will be affected.

My website blog has several articles on Hormonal Health, which could benefit you as you begin this news stage of life. General healthful lifestyle recommendations are also covered in detail in my book:

The Paw Paw Program – The “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally.  Extensive dietary recommendations and some recipes  are given to help people understand how to eat better.  Eliminating sugar,  is critical to optimum health and prevention of all chronic conditions, diseases. These recommendations, with particular attention to keeping the liver and glandular system healthy will help ensure an easy menopause.

Many women are helped by a combination of herbs known as Women’s Formula. There are several formulas; some women prefer the Wild Yam and Chaste Tree combination, but there is ALWAYS something that works!

Please contact us if you are interested in obtaining any of the above. We encourage people to use the same quality herbs we have used  for 24 years in our consulting office. Thanks for contacting us!

November- December 2013 Newsletter

by LoreneB - December 15th, 2013




November – December, 2013

“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”                                  William Arthur Ward

As Christmas approaches, most of us have much for which to be grateful. We are grateful for so many things in our lives! At this time we would like to express our gratitude to all family, friends, clients, students and co-workers who have interacted with us in our health business in some way over the last 30 years.

Whether it has been opening to the miraculous healing power of herbs;  purchasing from Nature’s Sunshine to be sure you are getting the best possible quality from around the world;  studying or working with us;  you have all blessed our lives.

We wish for internal peace to start in your heart and radiate outward to encompass your home, your community,  joining with others to envelope the world in peace.

A tribute to Nelson Mandela, a man of true peace, who said,

People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love,

For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.

Video Pick

A clear 14 minute video from 16:9 showing how WiFi causes heart problems, headaches and other neurological disorders in children, as well as cancer in all age groups. This Canadian documentary exposes the truth. SMART meters being “forced” upon Canadian homes is yet another addition of radiation – perhaps the straw that will break the camel’s back ?  How much EMF can humans endure?

If you think Health Canada (or American) agencies are protecting us, please pull that head out of the sand and at least listen to 80 seconds from  minutes 9:15-10:35.

Other countries such as France, Germany and Britain ARE making changes to protect their population, especially vulnerable children. North America needs to wake up!
