Stop Cold & Flu

by Jaye

October 2009

My 82-year-old stepdad came down with a nasty bug a few weeks ago. It hit him suddenly, and within a couple of hours he was flat on his back.

As soon as I heard he was sick, I went to the stove and boiled some elderberries in 2 cups of water, added some sage, alfalfa and lemon grass and simmered it for an hour. I let it steep covered for 2 more hours, then strained the herbs from the water. I put the tea water back on the stove till hot enough to emulsify 1 cup of clover honey and then bottled the tea. One Tablespoon every 4 hours and he was a new man in less than 24 hours!

Ah, the power of plants!

They [our herb books] are comprehensive, detailed and well organized so I can start doing a much more effective job coming up with herbal answers than I could before. Oh, and flipping through the pages sends up wafts of Lavender here, Peppermint there, Mmmm! From now on I need to remember always to include herbs with any books we buy from you! Nice touch. As for the water filter, well, yippee yahoo is all I can say, besides maybe that finally I'm relieved to know that we're okay on water, wherever we go (so, yippee, yahoo and phew!). You have helped my family by helping me in my job as a wife and mother. May God bless you, your family and your business richly. ~Helen


Did You Know?

Unusually offensive body odor is often the result of toxins built up in the body, making their way out through the skin. Whether it's your feet, armpits or fecal matter, all such foul smells usually have the same root cause: excess toxins. Tackling such issues with an external remedy is usually, at best, a temporary fix. The use of Bentonite clay internally can flush out a wide variety of odor-causing toxins. A young lady from Florida recently shared how wonderful it is to be free of the offensive odor that had plagued her for some time. She thought it would never go away, but not long after she started consuming Bentonite clay, the body odor disappeared.
