Maitake Mushroom

Maitake Mushroom and Benefits for Allergy Sufferers

One of the main ingredients in our Allergy Formula. You might be wondering how a mushroom could be an excellent treatment for allergies. What you will learn in this article might surprise you and I promise you will find it very interesting! It is important to understand the underlying factors that are involved to truly understand how  Maitake Mushroom helps to inhibit allergic reactions.

Medicinal mushrooms are highly absorbable into the system

The medicinal elements of the mushroom are easily recognizable to the human body. Human use of medicinal mushrooms has a long history. The valuable medicines of mushrooms have been well known to be a vital element in protecting our health for thousands of years.

There have been many scientific studies supporting the positive effects of mushrooms for the immune system, energy, cardiovascular health, anti-allergenic, cardio health, blood sugar levels, fighting inflammation, as well as being anti-viral and anti-bacterial.

Mushrooms and their natural defense mechanism

What makes mushrooms so effective is that they have developed incredible properties to ward off bacteria and mold that would compete with them in their natural surroundings as a defense mechanism.

When we consume these fungi, the same effect takes place to strengthen the immune system of a human being as well. This includes immune systems that are weakened as well as hypersensitive immune systems. The reason for this is because medicinal mushrooms are adaptagens. We will get to what that means a little bit later.

Allergies and the Immune System:

An allergy stems from the immune system having a hypersensitive reaction to substances such as foreign proteins in the environment that are in actually harmless to the body. However, a person with a hypersensitive immune system will have a reaction to this harmless substance.  These substances in a person with a hypersensitive immune system are known as an allergens. These allergens can be many things including dust, pollen animal dander, and molds and fungus.

Allergic reactions can include sneezing, sinusitis, hay fever, asthma, eczema, and hives. These reactions are caused by the body’s production of histamine and other chemical reactions. Symptoms can range anywhere from from mild discomfort all the way to life threatening reactions such as anaphylactic shock.

Maitake Mushroom and Immune Regulation

One of the most amazing properties of Maitake Mushrooms is their ability to strengthen the immune system and inhibit tumors, making them promising anti-cancer treatments. Since it may seem counter-intuitive then that Maitake be effective treatments for allergies because allergies are essentially the cause of an overactive immune response.

Maitake Mushroom the Adaptogen

The reason Maitake is beneficial to both overactive and underactive immune systems are that they are adaptogenic.  Adaptogens are defined as substances that help the body adapt to various types of stress by adjusting altered body conditions back to normal. For example, adaptogens help maintain healthy levels of blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, and body weight.

Maitake helps to balance and regulate the immune system. A study at Memorial Sloan-Kettering hospital concluded that Maitake enhances activity of some immune cells while inhibiting those of other immune cells.

Make Medicinal Mushrooms part of your daily regiment

Maitake Mushroom has ability to aid in regulating the immune system, bringing the immune system back into balance, helping the immune system to be more resilient, and performing better even in stressful situations.  This is all part of the holistic approach to health and wellness and you can feel good about adding medicinal mushrooms to your regiment.

Weight Loss and Liver Detoxifying

HOW IS DETOXIFYING CONNECTED TO WEIGHT LOSS?

I get a lot of my customers that ask me if I have a good formula for weight loss. The short answer is no. I don’t have a magic pill that’s going to help you lose 20 pounds in a month if that’s what they are referring to. However, the long answer is YES!

What do I mean by that? Please read below so I can break it down for you…

Are you currently trying to lose weight or have you tried in the past and maybe lost some, but hit a plateau and got frustrated and gave up?

A toxic liver could be to blame! Toxins in the liver create a major challenge to weight loss goals.

Your liver and its functions:

The liver’s main job is to filter the blood coming from the digestive tract, before passing it to the rest of the body. The liver also detoxifies chemicals and metabolizes drugs.

If your liver can’t keep up with a number of toxins in the body, the liver will create new fat cells and store the toxins in those fat cells in an effort of self-defense to keep the body from essentially being poisoned and to keep the toxins out of the circulatory system and away from other organs.

What this essentially means is that some people will not be able to lose weight no matter how much they restrict their calories or exercise!

What’s up with the dreaded weight loss plateau?

Sometimes people are able to lose weight fairly easily in the beginning and then suddenly their weight loss progress comes to a screeching halt. This can be extremely frustrating and confusing. So what could be the problem?

Like I explained earlier, your liver loves to store toxins in fat. Along with the fat that is metabolized back into the system comes all of the toxins that were stored in those fat cells. Studies show that “Toxic” blood can actually activate the formulation of new fat cells.

So what can happen to the body when it is exposed to that many toxins? It can be manifested in a plethora of ways including:

  1. Interfering with thyroid hormone function
  2. Feeling irritable during weight loss
  3. Feeling of being poisoned or very low energy

If you have ever felt very irritable and sick during a weight loss effort, many people report feeling better after they have eaten a lot of food.

This is because your liver creates new fat cells once you have overeaten and toxins are then pulled back away from the body and out of the blood and put back into fat storages that your liver creates.

This is why keeping your blood clean and purified and doing things to support the liver function is extremely important to overall health and for weight management.

Fatty Liver Disease

If the liver does not regulate fat metabolism efficiently, weight gain tends to occur around the abdominal area and the telltale pot belly develops. Another telltale sign will be a roll of fat around the upper abdomen which is an indication of a fatty liver.

A fatty liver is a condition in which your liver has switched from being a fat burning organ to a fat storing organ. As you can see from the photo above, greasy fatty deposits literally replace healthy liver tissue and the liver becomes enlarged and swollen.

A fatty liver is a condition in which your liver has switched from being a fat burning organ to a fat storing organ. As you can see from the photo above, greasy fatty deposits literally replace healthy liver tissue and the liver becomes enlarged and swollen.

Many middle aged people that have a large amount of abdominal fat have fatty liver issues. If you have gotten to the point that you have a fatty liver, getting your liver back on track can take anywhere from 3 to 12 months depending on how much fat has accumulated in and around your liver.

Losing abdominal fat is almost impossible until you can improve your liver function. However, once the fatty liver disease is reversed through healthy diet, exercise, and detoxifying, the liver will start burning fat efficiently again and the weight comes off gradually and without too much effort from you.

Losing abdominal fat is almost impossible until you can improve your liver function. However, once the fatty liver disease is reversed through healthy diet, exercise, and detoxifying, the liver will start burning fat efficiently again and the weight comes off gradually and without too much effort from you.

There are some major common health problems associated with a fatty liver which includes:

  1. Much higher chances of high cholesterol,
  2. Cardiovascular disease
  3. Type 2 diabetes

It’s also not uncommon for young adults and adolescents who consume a diet high in processed foods and sodas to have a fatty liver as well.

Overloading your body with prescription drugs or improper hormone replacement therapy are other ways that really over-tax the liver to the point that it cannot perform its fat burning functions

Whether you’re trying to drop unwanted pounds or flush out unwelcome toxins, you need a healthy liver to make it happen.

Woman on Scale

Here are some tips on some simple changes you can make to keep this overachieving organ in optimal shape and reduce your toxin exposure:

  1. Get plenty of fiber. As much as 35 to 60 grams a day. Using a supplemental fiber is usually necessary make sure that those needs are met. Ground Psyllium Husks or Ground Flaxseeds are good sources.
  2. Boost anti-oxidant levels. They help with detoxification while protecting the liver, brain, white adipose tissue and aid in circulation. Our Inflammation Formula (click this link) aka Turmeric Extract is very high in anti-oxidants.
  3. Exercise regularly to boost circulation and flush out the systems.
  4. Eat organic fruits and vegetables and absolutely avoid GMO’s as much as possible.
  5. Choose unprocessed foods with no preservatives, dyes, nitrates
  6. Use only natural skin care products (no chemicals, additives, or preservatives).
  7. Do steam baths or saunas. Infrared saunas are excellent for detoxifying. I just bought one for my home and it is awesome!
  8. Use natural cleaners for the home.
  9. Install water filters to get rid of chlorine.
  10. Drink at least half your body weight in ounces of purified water every day.
  11. The EPA has stated that indoor air quality is one of the TOP 5 RISKS TO PUBLIC HEALTH! Detoxify the air in your home as much as possible by doing the following:
  • Change air filters frequently and clean air ducts yearly.
  • Get house plants that increase oxygen and pull toxins out of the air. The following plants are the most effective at doing this:
      • Aloe
      • Purple Waffle Plant
      • Areca palm
      • Peace lily
      • Rubber plant
      • Mother-in-law’s tongue
      • Golden pothos
      • English ivy
      • Money plant
      • Red-edged dracaena
      • Spider plant
  1. Drink out of stainless steel water bottles rather than plastic.
  2. Reduce the number of alcoholic beverages you consume.
  3. Do a periodic detox program to support your liver so it can keep up with the demands that are put on it on a daily basis. Our Detox Formula (click this link) is an excellent gentle but very effective detox formula that is gentle enough to do for a month on and a month off or at least every six months for maintenance.

I find that knowledge is power and once you understand the reasons why detoxifying is so important to overall health and wellness, the motivation to do something about it becomes much greater and the likelihood of sticking to your health and wellness goals is much more likely.

I hope the information provided is helpful to you and that you understand yet another reason why I have the Detox Formula and the Inflammation Formula in my line of amazing products!

Is it a Cold or is it Allergies?

Sick Ill Woman In Autumn Park Sneezing In Tissue.

I’ve talked to many people over the years about this specific issue. Many times people will tell me they never had allergies in their entire life and then all of a sudden they are experiencing allergy or cold type symptoms but have attributed it having general “Winter Crud”. Many of the symptoms of a cold and allergies are the same so how do you know? Let’s break it down:

What is the difference between a Cold and Allergies?
Colds: A Virus that gets into your body and your immune system attacks it.
1. Common symptoms include cough, sore throat, and a runny, and/or stuffy nose.
2. Colds also last anywhere from 7 to 10.
3. Colds can come on quickly and tend to taper off quickly as well.
4. Sneezing and itchy watery eyes are less likely to be symptoms.
5. Many times people can experience body aches and even a fever when they have a severe cold.

Allergy
Allergies:  Caused by an overactive immune system. Your body, for whatever reason, mistakes harmless substances such as dust or pollen for germs and attacks them. Your body releases chemicals such as histamine (same as when you get a cold).
1. Symptoms include inflammation of the sinus cavities, congested or runny nose (drainage), coughing, and sneezing.
2. Allergies will never give someone a fever or cause body aches, while a cold sometimes does.
3. If a person does have a sore throat, it is usually because they are experiencing post nasal drip.
4. Allergies show up around the same time every year. Usually last for a season, or at least four to six weeks.

A few important facts to consider:

Preventing Allergy

1. It is very possible to develop allergies later in life.
This is something I stress to people. The reason why is because people are usually born with the genetic potential to get allergies if at least one of their parents also has allergies. People can be exposed to allergens all their lives but it can take a long time for them to eventually react to pollen or dust mites.

2. Main winter allergens are dust, pet dander, and mold.
When people experience winter allergies, it’s usually because they have allergies that last year-round but it usually gets worse because we’re inside more and there’s not a lot of ventilation to help with clearing the air.

3. Focus on bedding is important since we spend up to 8 hours at a time in the same place so there is more potential to exposure to allergens.

  • Cleaning bedding more often and in hot water once a week will help to kill dust mites.
  • Keeping pets off of the bed is also very helpful.
  • Throwing away moldy shower curtains, bleaching any visibly moldy areas.
  • Cleaning out air ducts once a year are also helpful ways of reducing allergens in your home.

4. Mold is another fall trigger.
You may think of mold growing in your basement or bathroom or any other damp areas in the house but mold spores also love wet spots outside. Piles of damp leaves and even grass are ideal breeding grounds for mold.

5. Don’t forget dust mites!
While they are common during the humid summer months, they can get stirred into the air the first time you turn on your heat in the fall. Dust mites can trigger sneezes, wheezes, and runny noses.

6. School is Back in Session Going back to school can also trigger allergies in kids because mold and dust mites are common in schools.

Hopefully you find these facts and tips informative and helpful and then next time you feel that tickle in your throat or an annoying stuffy nose, you can figure out why by process of elimination and be on the road to recovery a lot sooner when you know what to treat and how to treat it.

Top 5 Reasons Extracts are Superior to Capsules

tincture-vs-pillOften times when I’m running my booth at the farmers markets, I have people come up and ask if my products are essential oils. It is a legitimate question.

The bottles at first glance look very similar. Before I even have the chance to talk about our formulas, I take the time to educate about what tinctures actually are and why they are far superior to a dried, capsule, or pill form.

Bottom line:

You get the MOST BENEFIT IN THE LEAST AMOUNT OF TIME! Let’s break this down:

  1. Tinctures absorb directly into the bloodstream and therefore, digestion is not required. During the digestion process, the medicinal constituents of the herb have to be extracted from the plant cellulose. To explain this a little further, for cells to be able to absorb nutrients, those nutrients must be broken down into a liquid first. We have basically done the work for your digestive system!
  2. Liquid Extracts take 1 to 4 minutes to absorb as opposed to the 20 to 30 minutes that a capsule can take that that’s before your body can even begin to assimilate them!
  3. toiletYour body can only absorb about 40% to 60% of capsules. Where does the rest of that capsule go? Directly down the toilet along with your money.
  4. Liquid Extracts have a 98% Absorption Rate!
  5. It can take up to 20 capsules to equal the benefit of a single dose of a liquid extract.

We want our customers to get the maximum benefit from our products in the quickest amount and time and that’s why we have been doing what we do the way we do it for the past 35 years. If I do say so myself, I know we have perfected this process and we are confident that we offer the most

If I do say so myself, I know we have perfected this process and we are confident that we offer the most high-quality product available at a price anyone can afford.

Avena Sativa aka Wild Oats

Avena Sativa aka Wild OatsAvena Sativa is the Latin name for Wild Oats, which is in our Sleep/Stress Formula. We use the wild oats in their “Milk Stage”, which only lasts about one week and happens after the plant flowers and before it hardens and becomes the grain that is the actual oatmeal that we eat!

Like most herbs, there are a multitude of benefits from this plant while it is in its milk stage. Wild Oats are high in silica, magnesium, phosphorus, chromium, iron, calcium, alkaloids, protein, the vitamin B complex, and vitamins A and C. The liquid extract of our formulas insures extremely high quality bioavailability of these vitamins and trace minerals.

Libido Enhancer

Have you ever hard the term “sow your wild oats”? Have you ever wondered where this peculiar saying came from? Herders and farmers would allow their male goat and hoses graze on wild oats to increase their lustfulness during mating season. This has given Wild Oats the reputation of an effective love potion. Wild Oats ability to nourish the endocrine system, regulate hormones, and support to nerve health are some of the reasons why it has proven to be effective.

Mood Booster

Avena Sative (Wild Oats) are high in B Vitamins. These nutrients are vital for energy production, mood, and hormonal balance. Oats are considered one of the best remedies for feeding and restoring the nervous system. Avena Sativa is especially effective in times of stress, nervous system weakness, exhaustion, emotional trauma, chronic fatigue, anxiety, tension, and sleeplessness. Longer term use benefits sleep habits overall as well. Try taking this amazing herb on a regular basis and pay attention to your overall quality of mental and emotional wellness.

Black Walnut

WalnutFor medicinal purposes, black walnut hulls are best known as a parasite treatment, but they have many other potential health benefits. Special compounds, including juglone, tannins, and natural iodine in these powerful nuts, and particularly green black walnut hulls, make them not only an effective anti-parasitic, but also a potent anti-bacterial, anti-viral, fungicide and intestinal cleanser. Black walnut is used to treat ringworm, yeast and candida infections and is an excellent support agent for harmful organism cleansing. Let’s break down each of these components…

Juglone

Juglone is toxic to many plant species which is why you will not find many plants growing within several yards of a black walnut tree. In the case of many things in nature, it is ironic that this defensive action for the tree has been redirected into healing powers and juglone is believed to be effective against harmful organisms. Many natural health practitioners recommend juglone as an important part of harmful organism cleansing.

Tannins

Tannins are believed to support harmful organism cleansing and even help with blood disorders and stress. Plants produce natural compounds to help defend against insects and other harmful organisms. These compounds are called tannins.

Iodine

Iodine is required to produce thyroid hormones; iodine also supports harmful organism cleansing by affixing itself to harmful organisms and annihilating them. Black walnut hull is an excellent source of iodine.

Other Benefits of Organic Black Walnut Hull

  • Supports healthy digestion and bowel regularity
  • Provides oxygen to the blood
  • Helps balance blood sugar
  • Powerful detoxifier

The Parasite Problem

Did you know that according to the World Health Organization (WHO), 1 in 4 people living on this planet is infected with one or more parasites? This is something many might assume is more of a third world country problem, but with our world becoming more and more interconnected through travel and immigration, the parasite issue is becoming more prevalent in developed countries. The United States, for example, has millions of people that suffer from some sort of parasitic infection. Parasites like tapeworms, roundworms, pinworms and many others are a serious, if often neglected and undiagnosed health problem.

How does a person contract a Parasite?

It is much easier than you might think. These harmful organisms may enter our bodies through contaminated water or food (particularly under cooked pork, beef and fish), mosquito bites, touching pets and other animals or any infected surface and then touching your nose or mouth.

How to Take Black Walnut Hull

Black Walnut Hull is one of the main ingredients in our Detox Formula. We have selected this ingredient because of it’s ability to rid the body of parasites and to cleanse the digestive tract as well. It is best to take this formula first thing in the morning on an empty stomach so there is no food in the digestive tract. Ideally, the second dose should be taken a few hours after a light dinner, again because it works best if there is no food in the digestive tract.

I hope you have found this information to be useful and informative. Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions!

Turmeric and Absorption: What’s all the confusion?

TurmericWhen I explain that our Inflammation Formula is pure Turmeric extract, a question people frequently ask is if black pepper is included in the formula to aid in the absorption of the Turmeric. We do not include black pepper extract in our formula and please allow me to thoroughly explain why.

An Ancient Remedy

By now, most people are familiar with the amazing benefits of adding Turmeric to their diet. Many people that I talk with are now adding the powder to their smoothies, taking Turmeric pills, or taking the most well-known “active ingredient” in Turmeric, Curcumin.

Although the over 600 studied benefits of Turmeric are just now getting international attention and recognition in recent years, it has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for over 6,000 years.

Ayurvedic medicine originated in India and is one of the oldest holistic (whole body) wellness healing systems in the world. In fact, areas in India are known to have the lowest rates of Alzheimer’s in the world and studies link it to their daily use of the spice Turmeric in the curries that are a staple of their diets.

Curries are usually cooked with some sort of oil and include the spice black pepper as well. This fact is very important and let me tell you why.

Absorption of Turmeric

Turmeric alone is difficult to absorb through digestion. This is because it is fat soluble. Without fat, the active component in turmeric, curcumin, has a difficult time making it past the stomach, into the small intestine, and into the blood where it can offer the greatest benefits.

Another way to help with the absorption of Turmeric is to take it with black pepper. The compound piperine, which is responsible for the pungent flavor in black pepper, is also a potent inhibitor of drug metabolism. One of the ways our liver gets rid of foreign substances is by making them water soluble so they can be easily excreted. The piperine molecule, however, prevents that process. The bioavailability of curcumin (turmeric) will shoot up 2,000% when taken with piperine (black pepper).

Convenience Factor

While all of this may be true, most people I talk to here in the United States do not eat Indian Food on a daily basis, and remembering or having the ability to take black pepper with your turmeric or curcumin every time is not very practical. Especially if you have a hectic routine, are traveling, or quite simply, the thought of dissolving your Turmeric in coconut oil and eating a few peppercorns with it, just sounds unappealing.

Therefore, the likelihood of keeping up a regime like that on an ongoing basis, is just not practical and is something that might be kept up for a week or so before it gets old or inconvenient and is just given up all together. That’s where our extract form comes into play as the perfect solution to this problem.

Extracts absorb directly into the bloodstream before they even hit the digestive tract and have up to a 98% absorption rate. No need to worry about the oil and the black pepper. This is also why people get such amazing results just 10 minutes later after taking only one dose!

See our testimonial below to hear what we hear people say over and over again on a daily basis.

Nettle Leaf

A Multitude of Benefits

Nettle-LeafOne of the main ingredients in our Allergy Formula is Stinging Nettle Leaf. If you have been taking the Allergy Formula and have felt relief of your allergy symptoms, this benefit in and of itself is enough to make you want to jump for joy. However, Stinging Nettles does so much more.

Start paying attention to how you look and feel. Have you experienced more energy, better skin, and hair, less arthritic conditions? The numerous of benefits Stinging Nettles are almost overwhelming.

Stinging Nettles and Allergies

Part of the reason it works so well at controlling allergies is because it acts as a histamine blocker and is an anti-inflammatory herb.

Histamine is the element that induces the inflammatory response and leads to the symptoms. It acts like a local hormone that controls the immune reaction. About 50% of allergy symptoms are caused by the release of histamine.

More Nutrient Dense than Blue Green Algae

That’s right! In addition to being a natural histamine blocker and an anti-inflammatory, it is an excellent source of nutrients, containing a number of essential and trace minerals.

Stinging Nettles is especially rich in Vitamins and critical trace minerals including: selenium, sulphur, zinc, chromium, iron, magnesium, copper, bromine selenium and boron. Vitamin A, C, E, F, K, P, Vitamin B-complexes as well as thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, B-6 all of which are found in high levels and act as antioxidants. Calcium, Chlorine, Chlorophyll, Potassium, Phosphorus, Sodium, Iodine, Chromium, and Silicon.

10 grams of Stinging Nettle contains:

  • 290 mg of Calcium
  • 86 mg of Magnesium

The same amount of Spinach contains:

  • 10 mg of Calcium
  • 8 mg of Magnesium

A Few Added Benefits

The Stinging Nettles act as an amazing blood purifier with a positive effect to the pancreas. It is known to effectively relieve eczema symptoms from an internal approach.

Stinging Nettles also assist in lowering blood sugar as well as acting as a natural diuretic and therefore excellent for the urinary tract. Nettles also aids in nourishing the adrenals, which is the center of your energy levels.

I could go on and on, but I hope I’ve made my point.

Thank you for taking the time to read. My hope in providing this insight, is that it gives my customers and readers a greater understanding of why I say that even though the herbs are in our formulas for specific reasons, the list of added benefits go on and on.

That is why we carefully select each ingredient with the perspective of the true holistic (whole body) approach being a big part of why people experience such amazing results. Everything is interconnected and that is why it is the true preventative approach.

Chickweed

ChickweedChickweed is one of the ingredients is in our Detox Formula. Although it is not a well-known herb, the humble chickweed plant has a multitude of amazing benefits and that is why out of the hundreds of different herbs, we have carefully selected this herb for our formula.

Excellent for blood vessels and your circulatory system:

Chickweed aids in purifying the blood and carrying out toxins. It is known to dissolve plaque in blood vessels, as well as dissolve fatty tumors and substances, then eliminating them from the body. Chickweed purifies the blood and kidneys as well as, calms and cools a troubled digestive stomach, easing constipation, hemorrhoids and stomach ulcers.

It has a mild laxative effect on the body, so it’s important not to overdo it. The benefits of Chickweed may be traced to the presence of gamma-linolenic acid or GLA. This fatty acid is effective for gastrointestinal complications, skin irritation, and inflammation. It serves to ease both digestive and skin problems. The herb’s anti-inflammatory properties help to alleviate arthritis discomfort, stiff neck, and stiff joints.

Aids in weight loss:

Chickweed is known as nature’s fat buster. properties cleanse and rejuvenate the body while nourishing it at the same time. It is a positive herbal extract for weight loss, as it helps the body dissolve and rid itself of excess fat cells. This ability to break down fat molecules may result in fat loss. It also works as an appetite-suppressant, digestive aid, and diuretic. The flushing effect acts as a natural detox agent, which may hasten the rate of weight loss.
