Astringents: This class talks about "pucker power" or when there is a need to pull liquids out of the tissue spaces. This is especially important when the area is swollen with lymph or edema such as ankles, it is also important for incontinence, sinus drainage, weeping skin and diarrhea. I think you will find the information in this class especially helpful for anyone dealing with allergies.

Your spine encases the spinal cord which is the main branch of nerves that comes directly from the brain. When you have a backache or having injured your spine in some way, your nerves are affected. The signals that tell other body parts to function may be lost and function may be hampered. Not only is there pain but there is loss of ability. If you have a headache it is difficult to think. 80 percent of the population will experience back pain. The older one gets, the more likely structural imbalances will occur. Getting regular chiropractic treatment helps to keep the spine flexible and easier to handle the stress we put on it. I will also give you tips during this class on other things you can do to support your spine better.
Past First Lady, Nancy Reagan, began this campaign in 2009 and drug concerns are even worse now! Nobody is saying, No! I also don't know too many people who enjoy pain. Below is a link for a Free Book by Steven Horne in dealing with pain naturally.
A while ago I taught a class demonstrating some of the techniques talked about in this book. These tools are invaluable. Make sure you download it and print it then share with everyone you love because, right now we are in an epidemic of pain killers. Practice the techniques with your family making sure they know how to relieve pain quickly.
Last year I was visiting my son, Michael in Boston and his daughter Katie fell on the stairs and gave herself a nasty bump. He immediately went to her and told her to rub. We all instinctually rub when we bump ourselves but we simply don't do it long enough to make the injured cells get out of the space and allow for healthy cells to not get injured from the heat. When rubbing an injury you are moving fluids that if allowed to remain will cause inflammation.
How long do you rub? You briskly keep rubbing until you feel no more pain and heat. Often applying a cream, lotion or gel to the area helps hasten the healing. There are a variety of these you can use and make sure you have them on hand. You can use any non-scented cream as a base and simply add Lavender Essential oil to it (One tablespoon of cream and 1-2 drops Lavender Essential oil is a good recipe).
Making healing creams up ahead of time (because accidents happen) is a good thing to have in your First Aid Kit. Make sure you label it! To the above recipe you could add a dropper of Distress Remedy. This remedy will add the benefits of calming, and wound healing. I also like to add some Silver gel as it can help keep the wound from getting infected. To the above recipe add about a dollop about the size of a dime. This is a very effective wound healing recipe. I've used hundreds of times.
By the way, Katie never even bruised! You too can prevent bruises from happening by rubbing the injury and getting the injured cells out of the tissue. Bruises are simply congestion. Bumps are fluids that have gathered and have made the area swollen. There simply is no reason to have them! Even if you burn yourself, you can heal from that within hours depending on the severity of the burn. Lavender oil is a wonderful burn remedy.
Adding some aloe gel as the base to the above recipe makes a wonderful sunburn lotion. If the sunburn is too painful to touch, you can water it down with some purified water and spray on to cool it down. Do this every 15 minutes until you can touch and spread on the full strength gel mixture. Again I like adding some Silver to stop any infection from occurring. I urge you to read the pdf and highlight those things that are important to you.
I only use Nature's Sunshine products because when it comes to the health of my family I want to make sure the proper dosage and herb are there and not some fillers. When you can save yourself time and pain by doing something immediately to deal with injuries there is no greater satisfaction. I have used these methods and taught them to my family and I urge you do the same. We don't have to deal with pain and often medication is not required. In some cases you may want to seek medical advice and the book goes over when that would be.
More people are being killed by pain killers than ever before. In fact, according to the CDC over 115 people are killed every day due to pain medications. Because prescriptions can be costly and limited, often people will go to street drugs or use someone else's medications. If you have pain medications laying around make sure you lock them up and keep them out of the reach of young children.
The deaths due to pain medication aren't druggies or street people, these are moms and dads and young children who at one time or another were prescribed opioids for pain and became dependent on them. These narcotics are casually given by the medical doctors who are trying to relieve pain the best way they know (knowledge obtained by the pharmaceutical industry). Many heart breaking stories are told in this PBS Special: https://pbs.org/video/3007077623/.
Natural pain relief may not be as strong as pharmaceutical ones but knowing some techniques to help with pain and injuries can help you and your family. Make sure you are vigilant when taking pain medications. Down-stepping is sometimes the best way to get your body off of harmful drugs. Talk with your doctor how you can ease your body off of narcotics and other medications and talk to an Herbalist about remedies that may help.

The Earth's Cure--Mineral deficiencies may be the root cause of your health concerns. Minerals are needed for healthy bones and teeth, but that's just the beginning. We obtain minerals from the food we eat. If any element is missing from the soil, then it will be missing from the foods we eat and as a result, we will not be properly nourished. Unfortunately, our commercial methods of agriculture are not only depleting the soil of precious trace minerals, they are also destroying the ability of plants to be able to utilize those elements. Hence, our food is deficient in minerals right from the start. If you would like the pdf handouts of this class, please email: Mary@BornForHealth.com Recorded audio class
