Green Tea Extract Testimonial... 
  "My daughter is fair skinned and burns easily.   She recently stood in line for hours to get tickets to see the cast of Glee without thinking about sunscreen.  She was badly burnt.    When she got home we applied some aloe vera gel with 1ml of the Green Tea extract.  The next morning it was like the sunburn never happened.  Amazing."

Avoid Complicated Formulas.  “These are the "kitchen sink" supplements, products that have as many as 20 herbs in a tablet or capsule. It''''s hard enough to get an active does of one herb into a single tablet or capsule, much less 20 active doses of 20 different herbs. Bottom line: They just don''''t work.

Greenbush Bio-Chelated Extracts: Full medicinal strength in an alcohol-free extract. Until Bio-Chelation there was simply no good way to make a potent alcohol-free extract. Greenbush alcohol free extracts begin with organic alcohol regardless of whether the final product contains alcohol or not. After finishing the first step in the plant extraction, an additional step is performed to remove the alcohol. This is done by utilizing a proprietary cold extraction process called Bio-Chelation Bio-Chelation describes the cold process vacuum distillation method, which removes all the alcohol initially used to obtain the good herbal extract.

Holistically Balanced Herbal Extracts: It is important to note that a cold extraction process, as opposed to a heat extraction process, helps maintain the full spectrum, or Holistic BalanceTM of the plant''''s constituents in the final product. The end-result is an alcohol-free extract containing the essential properties of the complete herb in a base of vegetable glycerin and water. (Vegetable glycerin is used because it can help to bind certain plant constituents, is natural to the body, easily absorbed, tastes sweet without affecting blood sugar levels, and acts as a good solvent and carrier for the plant constituents).

Turmeric Beats Psoriasis, Leg Cramps and Heals Burns
"Now... I have no psoriasis..."
       "I suffered from psoriasis for 25 years, having it over half my body.  I've seen many physicians and tried every medication and ultraviolet treatment.  The cost has been enormous, matched only by my disappointment with the failures. 
        When I read that turmeric had anti-inflammatory action, I wondered if it could help me.  I immediately bought some... After 10 days the awful itching and bleeding has ceased... Now, 5 months later, I have no psoriasis..."*   
"My daughter's psoriasis" 
        "Nothing ever worked to clear up my 8 year old daughter's psoriasis, but after three weeks of using turmeric it is gone.  Her doctor can't believe it." 
Editors Note:  I had psoriasis myself off and on for years.  This was before we carried turmeric, but I cured it with ginger root.  Ginger root is in the same plant family as turmeric.  It may be extra helpful to use both.  -Joel 

Leg Cramps and Treating Burns. 
         While there has never been a study of this, yellow mustard is a very standard old folk remedy for leg cramps.  It is believed that turmeric, which gives mustard its yellow color, is the reason.  Again it may be the anti-inflammatory properties of the herb, though the reports are that it works almost instantaneously.  Most leg cramps occur at night so it is important to get instant relief.  If you don't want to slurp down a couple of tablespoons of mustard in the middle of the night just keep a few turmeric capsules handy. 
          For treating burns, yellow mustard itself may be the best option.  Spread the mustard on the burn as soon as possible and leave it on if you can.  According to various folk remedy sources the mustard can actually prevent some of the skin damage if used fast enough, and it speeds up the healing process of the skin that is damaged, again probably due to the anti-inflammatory nature of the turmeric.

Natural Awakenings Article on Breast Enhancement 

 We recently published an article in Natural Awakenings magazine on the subject of herbs for breast health and enhancement that was carried by hundreds of their independent local newsletters.  The response to the article has been great.   Here is the published article. 

          Herbs Enhance Health Breast Tissue.

          From Natural Awakenings magazine October, 2009

     Using herbs for breast health and enhancement is nothing new. Their healing and mastogenic effects (the enlargement and growth of healthy breast tissue), have been recognized by various cultures throughout the world. Modern science is just becoming aware of the healthy aspects of such phytoestrogens (natural plant compounds that mimic estrogen) and their role in increasing the size and health of the breasts.

For centuries, rumors have floated out of the Middle East noting that harem women historically have been fed fenugreek seeds (Trigonella foenum-graecum) to make them more buxom.  According to the phytochemical databases of James Duke, Ph.D., a former researcher with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the seeds contain diosgenin and other mild plant estrogens. He notes in his seminal book, The Green Pharmacy, that, like natural estrogen, these compounds can increase healthy breast tissue.

In India, traditional ayurvedic physicians have long prescribed fenugreek to nursing mothers to increase their milk. In American folk medicine, fenugreek was considered a potent promoter of menstruation. It even became a key ingredient in Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound, one of 19th century America’s most popular patent medicines for “female weakness” (menstrual discomfort).

Saw Palmetto
Saw palmetto (Serenoa repens; Sabal serrulata), now a popular treatment for prostate enlargement in men, originally had a place in natural medicine as a breast enlarger. Late 19th century author and artist Susan Hale noted that Native Americans in the southeastern United States used saw palmetto berries for both food and medicine, including “the treatment of infertility in women, treatment of underdeveloped breasts, increased lactation [and] painful menstruation cycles.” Duke reports that naturopathic physicians still recommend it today for its breast-enhancing effects; in numerous studies, the herb has shown no side effects or drug interactions.

Wild Yam
In Herbal Healing for Women, author Rosemary Gladstar states that wild yam (Dioscorea villosa) “is the most widely used herb in the world today,” with derivatives of the herb present in thousands of prescription and over-the-counter medicines. It is used both as a breast enhancer and a sexual stimulant, and is recommended by herbalist Susun Weed, author of Breast Cancer? Breast Health! for fostering healthy breast tissue. Weed suggests adding the herb to creams for breast massage and notes that women using this mixture see improvements in both breast health and size. Duke further notes that wild yam contains less disogenin than fenugreek, but contains other compounds that contribute to breast health and enhancement.

Other Herbs
Red clover (Trifolium pretense) and soy isoflavones belong to a class of phytoestrogens structurally similar to estrogen. In her book, Menopause with Science and Soul, Judith Boice, a naturopathic physician, notes the balancing effect these nutrients can have and states, “This could at least in part explain why Japanese women tend to be at lower risk for breast and other reproductive cancers.”

Research at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston has spurred interest in the use of turmeric (Curcuma longa) in both preventing and treating various cancers. Their scientists observe that, “Extensive research over the last 50 years has indicated [curcumin] can both prevent and treat cancer.” Its anticancer potential, they believe, “stems from its ability to suppress proliferation of a wide variety of tumor cells.” A study published in Cancer Letters in 1999 showed the herb’s remarkable ability to contain the spread of breast cancer when used in conjunction with other breast cancer treatments.

Herbs and Breast Health
Dr. Andrew Weil, author, medical researcher and head of integrative medicine at the University of Arizona, cites large-scale demographic studies of cancer rates as his rationale for recommending diets rich in estrogenic herbs and foods to women. In his online guide, Healthy Aging, Weil notes that in Asian populations, where women consume up to 20 times more phytoestrogens than western women, rates of breast cancer are one-fifth of what they are in the west. These populations also experience the lowest rate of hysterectomies.

Finally, for anyone considering breast augmentation, wise use of these herbs could be the answer to avoiding painful and sometimes dangerous surgery, while improving overall breast health. As Duke remarks in his book, “If my daughter wanted her breasts enlarged, I’d certainly encourage her to try natural approaches first.”

Featured Herb: Muira Puama
    Want a little extra spark in your love life?  Do what the natives of Brazil do.  Try a little "potency wood." 
The roots of this little known Amazonian tree were the subject of a study conducted by the UCLA School of Medicine. The study showed a significant improvement in both erectile function and sexual desire. The Amazon natives have known this for centuries. It is a popular and widely used aphrodesiac in that area of the world and is used by both men and women.
Muira Puama Benefits:

Erectile dysfunction and impotency, aphrodisiac and libido promoter, adaptogen; tones, balances, strengthens, male hair loss and balding, central nervous system tonic and antidepressant.

Muira Puama Research:

Early studies indicated that muira puama was effective in treating disorders of the nervous system and sexual impotence. Researchers noted "permanent effect is produced in locomotor ataxia, neuralgias of long standing, chronic rheumatism, and partial paralysis." Experiments conducted in France by Dr. Rebourgeon confirmed the efficacy of the plant for "gastrointestinal and circulatory asthenia and impotency of the genital organs."

More recent research indicates that 62% of men with erectile dysfunction reported that muira puama had a dynamic effect, 85% reported enhanced libido, 90% reported improvement in erection and 100% reported increased frequency of intercourse.

Though most research has focused on male erectile dysfunction, improvement in libido and sexual response in women have been reported as well.

Other studies have shown muira puama to be helpful with hair-loss, weight-loss, and improvements in cholesterol, energy and heart function, all typical results for an adaptogenic herb.

Featured Letter:  Turmeric Experiences
I am almost 87 years of age and the last 20 years I have experienced quite a number of medical issues beginning with a mild stroke 20 years ago and another one about 10 years ago. I take Aggrenox for anti-stroke.  Then I had colon disease, divereticulis, and lost two feet of my colon.  The next big thing that came along was Diabetes II when I was 82.  I was a little overweight about 25 pounds. I lost that by beginning to use the Glymenic Index as a guideline.  Since then I have lost about 6 more and have learned all about small portions, eating slow, exercising and eating the right kind of foods.  About six months ago, my doctor said I no longer have Diabetes and that I have reversed it.  He congratulated me!  No more testing and no more pills. I eat just about anything I want only in small portions.
I have osteoporosis in all of my fingers, fungal nails in my feet and I have a very serious Lumbar spine disorder which is called Dish Syndrone.  If you don't know, it is a buildup of calcium on my spine and is systemic  There is no medication for it but I have taken Oxycodone for several years now. 
Results:  Osteoarthritis in my hands - Turmeric been wonderful and I have very  little pain now, however, it is not a cure.  It helps with pain & swelling.
The Tumeric seems to help my fungal nails some
My Dish Syndrome is so much better and am only taking a small amount at bedtime.  I wake up most morning with no pain. For awhile I had trouble with my one hip and could not walk down a flight of stairs without pain.  The pain is gone.  
I have lost over 5 pounds over the last few months but I need some help.  I am taking 3 Turmeric capsules a day.  I go to a massage therapist and I am seriously thinking about your herbs to use with the massage. 
Thanks again.  Needless to say I am very pleased with the Turmeric and will continue to order it.  I give my 60 year old daughter one bottle.  She is perhaps 200 lbs and loves to eat.  
If you wish to use some of this information in a testimonial, you have my permission.
