Please Note the Following
This is a third and final printing of the sixth edition of the Comprehensive Guide to Nature's Sunshine Products. We will not be publishing a seventh edition. We're working with a local printer to print a limited quantity of books with a regular paper back binding. These will be available until we stop selling the Comprehensive Guide at the end of September 2017. The retail price for this final printing of books is $44.95 and quantity discounts are available. These books will start shipping the second week of August.
Because this is the last edition we've included the most recently released products and removed discontinued ones. Other than that the content will remain the same. If you already have an earlier version of the 6th Edition we have created a 6th Edition Product Supplement that you can use with your current book. If your 6th Edition says Second Printing on the inside cover you only need the 6th Edition Second Printing Product Supplement.
We have also put together a 3-ring binder edition of the Comprehensive Guide to Nature's Sunshine Products which is $59.95. If you use the Comprehensive Guide professionally we encourage you to order one of these books. They will start shipping this Friday.
The Comprehensive Guide to Nature's Sunshine Products is an essential tool for maximizing the benefits of Nature's Sunshine Products complete line of high quality herbs and nutritional supplements. It includes detailed information on 648 Nature's Sunshine Products available in the United States and Canada. Each entry covers the properties, body system's affected, historical uses, directions for use, and warnings and contraindications for each of these products. But that's just the beginning.
The Comprehensive Guide to Nature's Sunshine Products provides a therapeutic index to over 500 health problems, providing information on causes, natural therapies and NSP products people have used to help their body recover from these conditions. Another section provides a list of 93 body systems, organs and parts with lists of remedies that affect them. The final section provides definitions, indications and contraindications for over 243 therapeutic properties with lists of NSP products that have those properties.
The introduction to the The Comprehensive Guide to Nature's Sunshine Products provides an overview of what natural healing is all about. Using a model called the Disease Tree (shown on the right), it teaches people how to look for root causes of their health problems rather than just treat the effects.
It also includes the charts and instructions for the ABC+D Approach to natural healing, a simplified method of helping a person put together an effective supplement program. You can see a page from The Comprehensive Guide to Nature's Sunshine Products which provides an overview of this system by clicking here.
The ABC's are Activate, Build and Cleanse, the basic things a person must do to recover from any illness. The +D refers to the idea of giving Direct Aid to weakened body systems and restoring balance to the body's internal environment or biological terrain.
Using the Body Systems Questionnaire, found in the The Comprehensive Guide to Nature's Sunshine Products a person can figure out which of the 11 body systems are in the most need of nutritional support.
Compiled and edited by Steven Horne, Registered Herbalist, who has been providing NSP Managers and Distributors with quality educational materials for 30 years, The Comprehensive Guide to Nature's Sunshine Products is a simply a "must-have" reference for everyone who uses or sells Nature's Sunshine Products. Even those not affiliated with NSP will find the reference useful in learning how to choose herbs and supplements to support the natural healing power of their bodies.
But don't take our word for it. Here's what successful NSP Managers have to say about The Comprehensive Guide to Nature's Sunshine Products.
I've been with Nature's Sunshine for close to 10 years and have complete faith in their products. So, when I finally decided to do the 'business', I naturally looked for tools to assist me and validate NSP Products. One of the tools I've found, the Comprehensive Guide, has become one of my bibles. It allows me to 'show' people ways of improving their health in a nice simple, easy but thorough reference book, as well as business builders who are not yet confident on how they'll be able to help others, as well as learn themselves. I even have 2 Comprehensive Guides - one for the office and one for home.
I use the Comprehensive Guide for my family needs as well as my client's. When I have a client call or come in, my guide is always handy to look up issues or details about NSP products. It also explains the "roots" of my consultation techniques. I recommend one to all my clients—it is a wonderful resource.
I've been with NSP for 17 years. The Comprehensive Guide has been invaluable in two ways: firstly, for guiding my distributors in determining how to help themselves, their families and their friends. They are so excited about the Disease Tree Model and it helps them to understand how to get to the root of their health problems. Secondly, it's invaluable as a reference book in my retail store. I find customers looking in there for solutions to their particular health problems when I'm not available. They often purchase it for themselves, too! I wouldn't be without it.
I am a manager with NSP and have a very busy clinic. My associate and I call the Comprehensive Guide our NSP "Bible." When a client has a special problem I look in the back under conditions and then usually muscle test two or three products to find one that works best. I can't see how anyone using and selling NSP products could be without this book. I have one at home and one in my clinic and several of my downline have purchased a copy. My goal is to have at least 50% of my downline with a guide because they tend to order on a regular basis when they know what the products will do for their health.
We’re excited about the new 6th edition. We’ve spent a lot of time and effort improving and refining the book to make this our best edition yet. Here are the ways we've enhanced this edition:
Detailed Table of Contents: We’ve added a nine-page Table of Contents (which also serves as an index) to the front of the book. We list every condition and product in this index so you can rapidly find the information you need.
Section Tabs: To make it even easier to look things up, we've added tabs for each of the six sections in the book. This allows you to rapidly navigate to the exact section you want to reference.
New Therapies Section: We’ve added a new section that covers 26 general therapies you can use for healing. These therapies are linked to the conditions and include instructions for using essential oils (aromatherapy), flower essences, oral chelation, hiatal hernia correction and much more.
New Products: As always we’ve dropped discontinued products and added NSP’s new offerings. New US products found in this edition include:
AnxiousLess, Chlorophyll ES, CurcuminBP, Equolibrium™, Healthy Start, Mind-Max, Nature’s Harvest, Relief Formula, Solstic Slim, Stixated™, Sweet FX™ and Ultra Therm™.
Also new to this edition are the Canadian products:
All Natural Pain Relief, Arginine Plus and Flax Hull Lignans.
New and Updated Conditions: Kimberly Balas and Thomas Easley contributed to updating the recommendations for the various conditions listed in this edition, which means you have the combined clinical experience of three natural healers working for you when you look up a health issue you’re trying to resolve. We’ve also added the following new conditions:
Abuse and Trauma, Diabetic Retinopathy, Liver Detoxification, Metabolic Syndrome, Shame and Guilt, Sleep Apnea and Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO).
Choose Product by Type: In the past, we lumped products of all types together in alphabetical order for each condition. Even though we highlighted our favorites, the list could still be overwhelming. To make the job of selecting products even easier, we’ve broken down the list by category. So, you can know see exactly which single herbs, herbal formulas, single nutrients, nutritional formula, nutraceutical products, packs, essential oils, flower essences, topical products and/or appliances may be helpful for any given condition. A description of what each product type is included to help you chose the best types of products for a given situation.
Improved General Directions: We’ve also included a new topic, Tips for Using Herbs and Supplements, in the introduction. This provides general information about selecting the right products, how long it takes to see results, how to adjust dosages and how to deal with negative (or adverse) reactions.
