Health in the News: Just Like Sugar
One of my most favorite and gifted healer friends, Dr. Randy Robirds, was just elected president of this new company. They have been working on the development of this product for a very long time. It is made from Chicory and is used in the same proportions as sugar. It does not cause blood sugar levels to fluctuate, so is safe for all of you Type II diabetics. The following information was taken verbatim off the Just Like Sugar www.justlikesugarinc.com website:

Case of the Month: Cold and Flu Season is here!
We are dealing with lots of colds/flu/sinus congestion this month. THIS YEAR what seems to be working is Vitamin C (lots of it in the form of citrus fruit), Vitamin A (in the form of orange fruits and vegetables. The herbs—Parsley, Sage Rosemary and Thyme are medicinal herbs that also kill off viruses and bacteria. And Bacterial System Immune Stimulator drops. Most of the colds appear to be mostly bacterial in origin and having to do with some kind of Streptococcus.
Professional Complementary Health Formulations (one of the companies that I most often use for homeopathics) has just come out with some new formulas: Flu Nosode, Bird Flu H5N1 Nosode, and Pneumonia Nosode. If the products above don’t whip you into shape, these products will.
What’s New on the Website?
It has been a busy month for me and the website. My husband, Michael, did readings for all the local political candidates and posted them onto a page on the site. The election passed, many of the pictures were removed, but the winners of the elections still have their readings posted. If you’d like to see what Michael is up to, go to: http://naturalhealthtechniques.com/Coaching%20Corner/Face%20Reading.htm
I also had help completing my newsletter sign up box. It’s on the home page now. This month’s newsletter is going out via an auto responder, which is really freaking me out…that is why the newsletter is so late this month! This is all new for me. My other newsletter I do for the Miracle Mastery group also went out on a DIFFERENT auto responder this month. So much to learn and know…it sometimes is overwhelming. I’m holding up better than can be expected though.
I submitted 16 different articles to www.ezinearticles.com this month.
