The Forgotten Therapy:
Sleep and Rest
Not many years ago people who were chronically ill went to special health resorts (such as the famous Battle Creek Sanitarium founded by John Harvey Kellogg) where they would stay for a few weeks to several months to recover from chronic illnesses. People staying at these resorts would be allowed to rest and sleep as much as they needed, while being fed healthy food and encouraged to do moderate exercises, sunbathing or hydrotherapy. This was what “nature cure” originally entailed—a healthy diet, exercise, deep breathing, lots of water, hydrotherapy, sunshine and rest. In this article we explore why sleep and rest is essential to health, healing and happiness.
Overgrowth of yeast (Candida albicans) in the intestinal tract has been linked to numerous health problems, including sinus infections, weak immunity, and cravings for sugar and refined carbohydrates. Yeast/Fungal Detox is designed to inhibit the growth of Candida albicans and other forms of yeast. Several of its ingredients also help to rebuild an immune system that has been weakened due to yeast overgrowth.
As a result of the widespread use of antibiotics, corticosteroid drugs, birth control pills, chemotherapy and other medications that disrupt the balance of friendly microbes in the human digestive tract, many people suffer from yeast overgrowth and other microscopic parasites. Caprylic Acid Combination contains ingredients that help reduce the growth of these unfriendly organisms.
A convenient way to reduce yeast overgrowth is with the Candida Clear Pack. This pack contains three anti-fungal agents that reduce yeast overgrowth as well as enzymes that help biodegrade dead yeast. In concert with small dietary changes, Candida Clear can reduce yeast overgrowth and improve overall health.
Taming the Yeast Beast
Yeasts have many positive benefits and are a normal part of our intestinal flora. Under the right conditions, however, these normally friendly micro-organisms can multiply out of control and change from friendly allies to nasty little “beasts” that wreak havoc on our health. This article offers suggestions for getting taming these yeastie beasties and getting them back under control.

It's chief constituent, curcumin, has been extensively studied as an anti-inflammatory agent and may be helpful for a wide range of health problems. In this free webinar, The Amazing Health Benefits of Turmeric and Curcumin, Steven Horne, RH(AHG) will share some of the research on this amazing herb and it's primary active constituent, curcumin.
Powerful Supplements to Defend Your Health During Cold & Flu Season
The overuse of antibiotics is having a negative impact on human health and the environment these days. Many of us have developed weakened immune systems, and pathogenic bacteria are mutating into superbugs (antibiotic-resistant strains such as MRSA). Rather than focusing on killing germs, try strengthening your immune systems through the use of herbs and immunity-building nutrients.
Comprehensive Immune System Support in a Convenient Packet
This formula provides an immune system boost in a convenient drink stick packet. It boosts the immune system and stimulates natural killer cell and macrophage activity. It can be used during the winter months, or whenever illness is going around to boost your immune system to avoid getting sick. It can also be taken in the early stages of illness to speed recovery by increasing immune system activity.
Defending Yourself During the Cold and Flu Season
During winter months when lack of sunlight leaves many of us deficient in vitamin D and when cold stresses the body and depletes its energy resources, people are more susceptible to disease. During this season when colds and flu are going around, taking something that helps to boost your immune system can help you stay healthy. Seasonal Defense is designed to support the immune system and help the body defend itself from infection.
Chewable Immune support for children
In our modern world, the air children breathe, the water they drink, and the food they eat often contain substances that are toxic and harmful to their developing bodies. These pollutants draw energy and biological resources away from the immune system, leaving children vulnerable to illness. Colds and stomach problems are usually followed by bouts with the flu and other illnesses that can linger for weeks. An effective immunity booster like Elderberry Immune can strengthen your child’s ability to fight off pathogens that cause illness.
