Anyone who has been studying with me for any length of time has heard me refer to the Disease Tree™. This model comprehensive framework helps a person understand where disease comes from and how to approach it from a holistic perspective rather than a symptom-treatment perspective. It is found in our Comprehensive Guide to Nature's Sunshine Products and many of our coursess. I've decided to post it here because I want as many people as possible to understand this concept, because it gives structure to everything a person learns about disease, health, the body, remedies, and assessment techniques.
The biological terrain is the internal environment of the body and is the common demonimator in the entire disease process. Understanding biological terrain is key to understanding the basic actions of herbs and how to select effective remedies. This article introduces the six tissue states and corresponding basic actions of herbs. It also lists NSP products that can be helpful for balancing each of the six biological terrain imbalances.
Creating good health is not really about eliminating disease, it's about working with your body and providing it the tools it needs to maintain its natural, healthy state. There are four main steps we can use to identify problems and help the body achieve good health. The simple mnemonic "ABC+D" is an easy way to remember these health-building activities. This article explains the ABC+D Approach to health taught in our courses and includes the full color chart giving an overview of the system.

Many TV shows, internet sites and magazines are calling various nutritionally-dense foods SuperFoods. The term isn’t just hype. It’s based on the fact that these foods contain nutrients that tend to be lacking in modern diets. SuperFoods contain large quantities of natural vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber and other compounds that can give us more energy, promote healing and fend of disease. Adding SuperFoods and superfood supplements into one's diet is a wonderful way to improve overall health.
An adequate supply of trace minerals is vital to good health. Unfortunately, modern agricultural practices have led to a steady decline in the trace mineral content of our food over the last 100 years. Mineral Chi Tonic is a trace mineral supplement that supplies dozens of essential trace minerals in a colloidal form for easier assimilation. However, Mineral Chi Tonic goes far beyond other colloidal mineral products by combining these minerals with extracts of Chinese tonic herbs that enhance the assimilation and utilization of the minerals.
