Winter is already knocking on the door. To help you defy this period of extreme cold, we put together a product package that is perfect to help face this season. Also remember, every season will require its own package of relevant multi natural products for good health.

The winter season kit includes the following products:

• S.M.F.-B: vitamins and minerals

Abuse and excess during the holidays

Although we tend to eat well, the holiday season is more about quantity and less about quality. Too many sweets, saturated fat, hydrogenated fatty dairy products and not enough fiber, fruits, and vegetables. The important thing at this time is to share, to take pleasure in eating with others and to have fun.
Effectively, the balance of the digestive system is an essential key to vitality and overall good health. Proper digestion allows us to efficiently assimilate all the good nutrients essential to metabolism. Proper digestion not only serves to nourish and give us energy, but also provides our body with protective antioxidants and immune stimulants. Proper Digestion helps to eliminate organic waste toxins and pollutants as well. Healthy digestion balances and strengthens the intestinal flora, so important for health. Finally, proper digestion helps us to maintain a healthy weight and a flat stomach, synonymous with vitality, well-being and a positive self-image!
Here are some natural recipes to help you maintain or recover a good digestive balance:
– Bloating/swollen stomach after meals, digestion time is often extended: use the relief provided by bitter digestive plants effective on the liver, pancreas, stomach (MILK THISTLE, CHICORY, LG-W FORM DEP and CCE-W) .
Use this cure for a minimum of one month. A dose of one of these products (approximately 2 droppers), two to three times per day.
Additionally, you can take a dose of probiotics in the morning or evening. Drink plenty of water during the treatment and ensure that the intestines are working properly.
– If the bloating is caused by irritation due to stress caused by extra work, long to do lists with little time or planning celebrations etc. Take one of the following combinations as well: NW, DAN-C, BB-W, or, one of the following plants: VERVEINE BLUE OR skullcap.
– If you have a tendency to experience constipation, slow/difficult digestion, inner stress, or hidden anxiety: perform a liver drainage with a mixture of laxative plants (CASCARA, PSYLLIUM +3 or +4 PSYLLIUM or CCE-W) in the evening with water for a few days.

Is it really ADHD?

Recently, the number of children diagnosed with ADHD has increased so much that it seems to be a fad. 1 out of 3 children is diagnosed with ADHD, but one has to wonder if our kids reallly are all suffering from it…

Today, when a child gets up too often to go to the toilet, a consultation is required and ends up with a diagnosis and medication. How is this possible?

And if it was that their nervous system is exhausted?

With the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat, our body is poisoned by chemicals, heavy metals, and parasites. They are often unknown to most people and cause symptoms that often resemble those of AD/HD. In addition, a lack of vitamins or minerals, a diet high in carbohydrates, refined foods and food intolerances may be the cause of such symptoms.

Before resorting to such a strong chemical medication, it is better to first eliminate all other possibilities.

What is the true ADD / ADHD?

ADHD means “deficit disorder attention deficit hyperactivity.” It is also sometimes called ADD “attention deficit disorder”. The deficit attention disorder with or without hyperactivity (ADD / ADHD) is a neurological problem that causes difficulties in controlling and curbing ideas (inattention), gestures (physical restlessness) and behavior (impulsivity).

How to help prevent symptoms associated to seasonal depression

For most of us, the arrival of autumn is a particular period of the year. The light and heat of the sun is less intense and the days are becoming shorter. This inevitably reminds us of the coming of winter.

This lack of light slows down our metabolism and makes it lethargic. Rare are those who can put a name to what happens to them. And yet, 18% of Canadians are suffering from the winter blues.

What is seasonal depression?

SAD (Seasonal affective disorder) is a form of recurrent depression that always occurs during the same period each year.

Many people who suffer from SAD are experiencing changes in terms of appetite, weight, sleep, mood and energy.

Why does the light plays a such important role?

We associate SAD and light. What for?

Light plays a critical role in regulating the internal biological clock. There are so many body functions that may be affected: the cycles of awakenings and sleep or secretion of certain hormones according to the time of day.

Hormonal imbalances can eventually cause symptoms related to depression.

What are the worning signs?

Sometimes we note changes in relationships: we feel more irritable, we might want to isolate ourselves further. We also feel a lack of energy to perform daily tasks, and can feel less productive at work or in our activities due to this. We can also have a lack of concentration and motivation.

SAD(Seasonal affective disorder)  symptoms include :

  • Lost of interest and pleasure in activities that we usually like
  • Increased appetite (there is an irresistible urge to eat sugary foods (carbohydrates)
  • Gained weight
  • Decreased libido
  • Increased sleep time, difficulty getting out of bed
  • Decreased concentration
  • Have the impression of being idle or be agitated
  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, suicidal thoughts or death.

What to do to prevent from the symptoms asssociated to SAD (Seasonal affective disorder)?

Because, this disorder is due to the decrease in the time of sunshine, light therapy is one of the indicated treatments.

Also, exercise: go outside to properly oxygenate, do activities, see friends, the use of medicinal plants, vitamins and minerals such as: B complex vitamins, calcium, magnesium, zinc and omega-3, are also suggested.

In addition, it is important to increase the intake of proteins, reducing sugars, change your diet and drink plenty of water.

We suggest some natural products that can help you fight the winter blues: DAN-C, SMF-B, B-W, E & F-W, Blue Vervain.

I hope this helps! If you need more information on how to treat seasonal depression with natural products, reach out to us. We’ll be glad to give you some tips to light up your winter!

Do not underestimate the health of your bones!

Picture this scenario: it’s mid-January, sidewalks are icy. On the other side of the road, you see an uneased face, walking tentatively on the slippery road. There’s a good chance it’s an elderly person, but most of us could fall victim to that icy sidewalk!

Ah, the fear of falling on the ice, causing one or more fractures. Although many women have osteoporosis, it doesn’t mean you have to be suffering from this disease to have brittle bones. Let’s be honest, the bones are of crucial importance within the human body.

In fact, they represent the structure on which the body rest and to which the muscles are attached. In addition, they have a role of protector of your organs. Moreover, they store calcium that your body will eventually use.

The bones are not a static structure. They are constantly changing, as and when the bones are renewed and replenished.

Bone health is essential and it starts with a healthy bone mass. Several factors come into play and must be respected to avoid breaking them into pieces during a simple fall.

The importance of your diet

You should eat well, plenty of proteins and ensure a sufficient supply of good calcium.

Your activity level

Always keep a stable and equal level of daily physical activity, such as taking a walk after dinner. Take supplements of calcium and organic silicon each day especially after the age of 30 (CA-W).

It is best to start early and build a healthy bone mass in childhood and adolescence, but there are also some steps you can take during adult life to protect your bones.

Pure Herbs little secret ingredients…

Here I want to talk about a combination that still to this day, is our best seller here at Pure Herbs and is now recognized worldwide: FORMULA # 11. This combination is more effective to help maintain healthy  bones, nerves,  flesh, cartilage and muscles.


Preventing symptoms associated to arthritis with natural product

Today more than a third of the population suffers from arthritic pain. Although often true, you have to realize it is not necessarily arthritis. For starters, it is very important to know the difference between arthritis and osteoarthritis.

Arthritis is an inflammatory pain. It is caused by inflammation of the joints. As such, it can cause pain even at rest. It is a pain which can appear throughout the body and can also reach the organs. They tend to decrease with physical activity and be more intense at rest.

Osteoarthritis is a more mechanical pain, which is due to an alteration of the cartilage that, by dint of wear, disappears and leaves the bones in contact with other unprotected bones directly between. It is more likely to cause pain at movement. This chronic and degenerative disease of the joints, unlike arthritis, usually affects the hands and back.

To prevent arthritis, the most effective way is certainly to maintain a healthy weight but also to pay attention to food. Priotizing a diet rich in antioxidants, fruits and vegetables and low in processed foods and red meat, substantially prevents the risk of developing a form of arthritis in his life.

Otherwise arthritis can also be caused by inadequate physical effort, repetitive movements and change of seasons.

How to relieve arthritis pain?

• Plenty of rest and relaxation: the lack of sleep and fatigue may increase the pain associated with arthritis.
• Avoid refined foods, sugars and red meats. Establish a diet rich in protein, amino acid and antioxidants.
• Physical activity and posture exercise like yoga, stretching and swimming.
• Use specialties such as massage therapy, osteopathy, acupuncture etc …
• Dietary supplement such as calcium, magnesium, glucosamine, chondroitin and silicon.

Also, there’s a plethora of effective natural products:

UNA  de Gato: has  anti-inflammatory property that helps to relieve pain by decreasing inflammation in the body.
FORMULA # 11 helps to maintain healthy  bone, nerves, tissues, cartilage. It is a powerful ally for arthritis but also for osteoarthritis.

Otherwise, remember to drink lots of water and avoid unnecessary stress. You’ll be less tense and you will feel way much better! Hope these tips help. Don’t hesitate to reach out for more info on natural treatment for arthritis.
