Dr. Moffat’s Favorite Products:

I have a “connector” type of personality. I love referring people to the resources they need to take them to the next step in their healing process. These are products I seem to recommend and share often in my practice. I hope you find some that will help you as well.

You’ll need to email me to set up an appt. and establish a client-patient relationship before you can order many of them from me, but lots of the products can also be ordered off the internet or gotten through your local health food store.  Sorry about that. I need to do it that way to keep my license.  Be Healthy! Dr. Moffat

A

Acidophilus, Liquid—Great for those who are not digesting well and need to get their bowels back in order.  These types of probiotics usually contain several species of Lactobacilli which assist in digesting proteins in the gut. Healthy gut flora consists of 85% Lactobacilli and 15 % E. coli. Imbalances of these percentages can lead to gas, bloating, intestinal toxicity, constipation, malabsorption (check those fingernails of yours. If they have vertical ridging, you are not absorbing your nutrients well.) You can’t get enough Lactobacillus for an imbalanced GI tract with yogurt alone. You need more organisms.  This also helps combat yeast. It can be used in a douche for vaginal yeast as well.  Kyo-Dophilus is a powdered brand in capsule form that is milk-free for lactose intolerant people. Store in a cool, dry place. Do not freeze. Take in conjunction with antibiotics, but it works best on an empty stomach.

Advantage and Advantix flea and tick products. The safest and most effective spot-on on the market. Prices vary with size of animal. For education on a total flea control program, see my flea control handout.

Aerobic 07 2.33oz. Bottle Aerobic 07 is a non-toxic solution of stabilized electrolytes containing oxygen in molecular form. When used as directed, it selectively kills harmful anaerobic infectious bacteria, but unlike drugs and antibiotics, it does not harm the aerobic or beneficial bacteria needed for good health. Aerobic 07 is effective against salmonella, cholera, E.  coli, streptococcus and even against Giardia lamblia. Kills harmful bacteria in water storage treatment using 6 drops per gallon. Great for traveling, especially if you are going out of the country or into third world countries. Keep on hand to protect yourself from natural disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, etc. when water supplies can be contaminated. Keeps vegetables, fruit, milk, and juices fresh longer. Use 10-15 drops per quart. Do not use in acidic based juices. Read more at: https://www.baproducts.com/aerobic.htm

AM/PM formula for natural Hormone Replacement Therapy from Integrative Therapies or Phytopharmica (which are the same companies) . This product, along with the herb, Cleavers, helps to increase libido in women. One month supply runs $21. Sometimes it works great. Other times it doesn’t, but let’s face it, there aren’t many products out there that will raise libido.

Apis Mellifica 30X Hyland’s  (what I recommend for emergency kits for bee stings allergies.)—Used to prevent bruising. Best when taken soon after accidents or surgery. Arnica Montana 30x (N) – 250 Tablets – Hyland’s Read about homeopathics here.

Astragalus Herb #100 Nature’s Way Herbs—the Chinese rendition of Echinacea. Astragalus Herb 100 Nature’s Way Herbs—the Chinese rendition of Echinacea. I think it works better than Echinacea and it is definitely cheaper.  I put both herbs in my Immune Stim. Formula.

Avon Silicone Glove for hand protection order through a local distributor or on-line at www.avon.com Great for people who suffer with eczema. It’s cheap and you can get it on sale often..

B

B-12 Dots #100 Twin Lab—Great for any kind of sinus problem and anemia situation.  For natural sources of B-12, read Vitamin Best Bet Foods.

B-Stress Formula #100 Nature’s Way Herbs—My favorite B-Vitamin combination with Ginseng.  I talked about this product and stress in my February, 2006 newsletter. There is also a great picture of stress rings in the iris there as well. Take a peek.

Bach Rescue Remedy is great for stress, emotional distraught and grieving. A must for the holistic emergency kit!  Rescue Remedy is a combination of five flower essences and is really effective. It comes in drops, spray or cream and can be found in most health food sections and health food stores. The cost is about $9-15 depending on which form you choose to take it in. You use it as needed up to every 15 minutes if necessary. A little goes a long way. Works on animals, too! A must for your First Aid Kit (keep it away from strong odors and perfumes as it is a homeopathic). Rescue Remedy – 20 Millimeter Liquid – Nelson Bach USA Click on the product picture to order.

Bacterial Immune Stimulator Drops: A must-have for your First Aid kid. Cost $15/2oz. bottle. Homeopathic drops to treat a host of infections (including food poisoning). I recommend these and Viral Immune System Stimulator drops for all of the clients who use me. I let them call me (no charge) and ask, “Which drops do I use? Viral or Bacterial? My kid is sick, I don’t feel well, my partner is under the weather, etc.”

Balance Gold Bars (Rocky Road is my favorite flavor) I have used these bars for a before bedtime snack (1/2 bar is one Zone block,) and I also pack a few in my suitcase when I travel as I have lots of food allergies and don’t know when I can find foods that I can eat.

Baldrain Plus– VitaMinerals–Some of my clients are convinced this works great for back pain. What Baldrain is, is enteric coated valerian. I’ve got to say, I think they are right. I don’t understand why plain valerian capsules don’t work as well, but they don’t. Baldrain Plus seems like a great formula.

Black Cherry Concentrate Tree of Life—For bouts of Gout and kidney problems. I’m including a picture of this product because most people don’t know the difference between cherry juice off the shelf and the concentrate. If you have gout, this is the one you will need. Black Cherry Conc. (Unsweetened) – 16 Fluid Ounces Liquid – Tree Of Life

Black Cohosh #180 Capsule Bottle by Nature’s Way: Used for dogs that dribble as they get older, but it doesn’t work that well for humans with the same problem. That is more individualized and is often associated with tendons/ligaments and allergies.

Blackstrap molasses–A great mineral-rich, natural food source high in iron. I use it whenever I can in many of my recipes. Taken in smoothies or drinks, the dose is not more than 3/4 teaspoon per day.

Blessed Thistle #100 Nature’s Way Herbs: Used for increasing milk production, female disorders and healing the liver. It purifies the blood and improves circulation by strengthening the heart.

Bragg’s Liquid Aminos, 32 Fluid Ounces is used as a flavoring and soy sauce substitute. Bragg Products use no table-salt! Bragg Liquid Aminos contain a small amount of naturally occurring sodium from certified non-GMO healthy soybeans (although I wonder how long it will be before pollens all around the world mix.)

Bulk Herbs and Spices www.starwest-botanicals.com

Burdock Root #100 Nature’s Way Herbs—Great for many types of arthritis and the pain associated with it. Burdock purifies the blood and liver. It helps with skin disorders such as boils and carbuncles and also helps relieve gout symptoms. The Native Americans dug this “weed” up in the early spring and used it as a pot herb. It’s kind of bitter–as most liver cleansing herbs and foods are. Click on the product picture to order.

Business Cards www.vistaprint.com You can download your custom photo and have business cards made for a really reasonable price or choose one of there MANY pre-designed cards and pay shipping only (I think it’s their loss-leader so that you will try them out. It’s a great deal.)

Buzz Away Natural Insect Repellant–Pets don’t like it, but it works great for people. I spray a little on my pant legs before walking in the forest during tick season. A little goes a long way.  Some of my clients have tried it on their horses. It’s only effective for about an hour. Sorry!

C

Calc. Fluor. 30X Hyland’s #500 Tab. Bottle Calc. fluorica (Fluoride of Lime) is one of the 12 cellular salts contained within the body.

C-500 w/ Rose Hips #250 Nature’s Way Herbs. Rose hips are very high in vitamin C and very bioavailable to the body. Natural Vitamin C is comprised of four molecules. Ascorbic acid only has one molecule. Because of this ascorbic acid doesn’t work as w3ell and can cause stomach upset.

Calcium Balance One-to-One, Douglas Labs  #90 Capsule Bottle. there are so many forms of calcium on the market. Finding the one that is right for you is essential. Once that happens, one can usually take that form for the rest of the person’s life without it causing side-effects. For natural forms of calcium, click here.

Calcium Balance Plus Vitamin D, Douglas Labs #90 Bottle. I have many kinds of calcium in my pharmacy because finding the right one for you is important. When I was 13 years old, my knees ached. Even then, I think my Guides were with me, because I found myself at the local health-food store purchasing a bottle of calcium with Vitamin D in it (with my allowance!) It only took three days for the pain to go away that had been there for months. For natural forms of calcium, click here.

Calcium Citrate, 1000mg Solaray #120 Calcium citrate is one of the more easily digested calcium’s. Some people like to take it in the chewable form called Viactive, which you can purchase from the grocery store these days. It also comes in a liquid form. For natural forms of calcium, click here.

Cardio Plus®: Awesome glandular/protomorphogen for ANY heart challenges.  I used to have arrhythmias and don’t anymore because of this product and a round wormer. I’ve helped several heart murmurs with this gem.  Read more about protomorphogens and how they work here.

Castor Oil, 16 oz. Bottle by Home Health, (Not to be taken internally or confused with Cod Liver Oil.)  Used in Castor Oil Packs to draw out toxins. Great for part of some cancer treatments programs. Soak a piece of clean white flannel, lay it over the affected area (usually the liver) and cover with saran wrap, a towel and heating pad or bottle. Remove after several hours.

Celtic Sea Salt—My favorite kind of salt. A half-pound costs about $8.55, but it’s cheaper than joining the society for $30 and placing a minimum order. You can read more about Celtic Sea Salt at https://www.selinanaturally.com/

Change-O-Life #100 Nature’s Way Herbs  This is quite excellent for that old dog, leaky bladder syndrome. Most dogs need 1/2 to 2/day depending on their size.

Charcoal, Activated #100 Nature’s Way Herbs—Used for offensive body odor and poisonings. (Also use chlorophyll pearles and parsley)

Chezyn®: A combination of chelated copper and zinc made by Standard Process™ that does a great job in repairing eye problems–especially macular degeneration and retinitis. I use this along with a Nikken Sleep Mask. Should be taken for several months.

Chitosan 500 MG – 120 Capsules – Source Naturals Chitosan 500mg. #120 Capsule Bottle by Source Naturals fat binder capsules. (Yes, you will need a lot of them if you have high cholesterol or are trying to lose weight with them.)  Just get them! One capsule binds about 6-8 grams of fat when you take it with a fatty meal. You can also use them for high cholesterol. Take 2-3 capsules per night with 1/2 cup water (not food) just before you go to bed. Cost runs about $29/180 capsules. If you’d like to read more on this product, it is featured as the Product of the Month for my monthly newsletter. It is used for dieting and cholesterol in different ways.

Cleavers Herb for increased libido (along with Phytopharmica AM/PM formula). It’s also an excellent herb for “thunder thighs” and anyone with a history of low-grade bladder infections (causing bad body odor and stinky feet and swollen ankles.) I carry this in bulk. www.starwest-botanicals.com

Co-Q 10 I think is best taken into the body in whole-food form, and it’s way less expensive and more effective that way as well. I recommend Cardio-Plus® by Standard Process labs.

Coleus Forskohlii Extract, Douglas Labs #60 Capsules used for some thyroid problems. It affects the heart contractions and blood clotting. Studies are being done to see how it helps congestive heart disease, glaucoma and chronic bronchial disease.

Cranberry Concentrate, Unsweetened, Tree of Life 16 oz. Bottle  Cranberry Concentrate Unsweetened – 16 Fluid Ounces Liquid – Tree Of Life This is my secret weapon for bladder infections. It makes the bladder slicker inside so bacteria can’t stick to it and helps to tighten urethral sphincter muscles so you don’t dribble. You’d have to drink a couple of gallons of Cranberry Juice off the shelf to get the same effect as just 2 tablespoons of this stuff. Plus, you’d be ingesting too much sugar and if your bladder infection had anything to do with yeast, the sugar would feed it. I put this stuff in a shot glass, down it, then chase it with an ounce or two of plain water. Repeat the treatment for about a week.

D

Dewormers- Roundworms I’ve tried natural wormers and eat pumpkin seeds every day, but we use Pyrantel Pamoate (Nemex® or Strongid® is the same thing) 10mg/pound once or twice a year. I pick up roundworms working in my garden (sometimes I’m an open mouth breather). When I get them, my heart flutters. Bugs me. So, when I worm myself the arrhythmia goes away. To read up on worms of all kinds check out my parasite pages. Dewormers- Tapeworms my favorite is Cestex™. Very safe and effective.

Dioxychlor, American Biologics 1oz. Bottle Used for cancer and yeast infections to get oxygen to the cells and kill off the cells a little at a time. There is a particular protocol to use with this product. I think it tastes like bleach, but I’ve used it in the past.

Dry E 400 IU, Solaray #50 Capsule Bottle. Blood Type O people are allergic to a component in the gel capsule (tartaric acid.) They should get Vitamin E from natural food sources, but when they need more than they can get out of food, I recommend this one. Deficiency signs of Vitamin E include damage to the red cells, nervous system symptoms, infertility (in both the male and female), menstrual problems, miscarriage, bowel cancer, breast cancer, and heart disease. Get a brand that says “Mixed Tocopherols” or “D alpha Tocopherols” as the ones that says “D-L α (alpha) tocopherol” is made of petroleum–which is what they make motor oil out of. I have noticed that lots of people are petrochemical sensitive these days.

E

Easy Cheese, Kraft brand Cheddar and Bacon (for bribing dogs–no, it’s not organic.) I’ve tried lots of things over my career as a vet. Hot dogs usually work as well, but this is much less messy. Do they remember you after the bribe? You bet! Even if it’s years later when they see you again. I only had one person hate me for giving it. Apparently their dog loved it. While they were away, the dog saw a can of it at his house. He worked and worked at it and found he could squish the can against the couch to get it to come out. What a mess. (He did finish off the can, however.)

Echinacea Herb #180 (Best Buy) Nature’s Way Herbs. Stimulates the immune system, acts as an anti-inflammatory and kills viruses. Also good for the lymph system. Used for colic, colds, flu, and snakebites.  Some of my clients prefer it in tincture form. Echinacea Tincture (Echinaguard) 2 oz. Bottle by Nature’s Way.

Emotional Remedies: These wonderful homeopathic/flower essence combinations were developed by Professional Health Formulations to help with the emotional aspects of physical symptoms within the body. 70% of all disease processes have some emotional component to them.

  • RET Stomach–Used for emotions having to do with disgust, impatience, self importance, obsession, ego, despair, nervousness, and for feelings of being treated unjustly.

  • RET Thyroid/Adrenal–Used for emotions having to do with lots of ups and downs, instability, paranoia, inability to think clearly or logically and for energy fluctuations.

Essential Oils – Starwest Botanicals www.starwestherb.com I have the full line. They are very high-quality and about half the price of Young Living Oils.

Essiac Liquid Tea Extract 10.5oz. Bottle  Essiac (es-ee-ack) is an herbal tea attributed to Canadian Nurse Rene M. Caisse, pronounced “reen (not re-nay) case”. Naming it Essiac after backward spelling of her last name, Rene dedicated her life to treating patients and trying to get her formula officially recognized. Her Rene M. Caisse Cancer Clinic for terminal cancer patients operated from 1935 to 1941. The four main herbs that make up Essiac are Burdock Root, Slippery Elm Inner Bark, Sheep Sorrel and Indian Rhubarb Root. If a little is good, a lot is NOT better. Take no more than 2 teaspoons/day. I believe that this should not be the only thing used to heal cancer. Getting to the core cause is essential and treating it with a host of strategies is what usually works. For more on this read my cancer handout.

Ester-C w/Bioflavonoids #100 Nature’s Way Herbs. Ester-C is the most advanced form of Vitamin C available. It has been specially formulated for faster absorption and retention so you can obtain the maximum benefits of vitamin C quickly. By “etherifying” vitamin C with calcium and bioflavonoids, this formula is estimated to be absorbed 400% faster than regular vitamin C. Ester-C also has a neutral pH that helps protect you from the stomach upset that can accompany other Vitamin C products.

F

Fennel Seed #100 Nature’s Way Herbs—For gas and bloating and as an appetite suppressant. Promotes functioning of the kidneys, liver, spleen and clears the lungs. Good for after chemotherapy and/or radiation treatments for cancer. You can also take some Fennel Essential oil, mix it with your face cream and it will help get rid of excess facial hair.

Ferrum Phos 30X Hyland’s #500 Tab. Bottle Ferrum Phosphoricum (Phosphate of Iron) is found in all cells of the body but primarily in the hemoglobin of red blood cells, lymph, muscle and hair cells. This one is used for acute phases of disease, for improving the appetite and relieving debility. It is also used in cases where there is vomiting of food and blood, nosebleeds, hemorrhoids, retained urine, insomnia, congestive headaches and excessive menses.  To read more about cell salts and what they do, click here.

Flannel Sheets for Castor Oil Packs by Heritage Products: there is nothing special about these sheets. You can go to your local fabric store and purchase a yard or two of white flannel for less money. The material should be thrown away after each use anyway.

Flor Essence 2oz. Flora Inc. (See Essiac Extract above.)

Floridix 17oz. Bottle by Flora. Iron deficiency affects as many as 4-5 billion people according to the World Health Organization. Some signs of iron deficiency include: Fatigue, inability to concentrate, dark circles under the eyes, brittle hair and nails, cold hands/feet, tan cheeks and chin. This is a safe, bioabsorbable iron supplement that does not cause constipation.

Flea Combs from England. I wouldn’t be without them. They have metal tines. Works great for head lice, too! They are $6.95 plus 60 cents for postage.

Food Additive Detox Drops by Professional Complimentary Health. These life-saving drops are a must for anyone allergic to MSG and sulfites and a host of other food additives. I keep a bottle in my purse when I travel or go out to eat. Cost: $15 plus S/H. Must order from a health professional like myself who carries the line. They are a homeopathic drop, so the vibrational field of the drop attracts those hyper allergenic substances that you have eaten and takes them out of your system. If you would like to read more about using homeopathics, click hereWhat’s in ’em? Aspartame, Caffeine, Chocolate, Citric Acid, Dextrose, Food Colorings, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, MSG, Potassium Chloride, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Erythorbate, Sodium Metabisulfite, Sodium Nitrate, Sodium Nitrite, Sulfites, Tricalcium Phosphate, Vegetable Gum (Carrageen) and Xanthum Gum. (Yes, the things you are allergic to should be in a homeopathic formula if you want to excrete it from your body.)

G

Ginger Root Powder #100 Nature’s Way Herbs: I use this for increasing circulation, stomach upset and car sickness in dogs. It helps with spasms and cramps, acts as an antioxidant, is great for bowel disorders, hot flashes, morning sickness and acts as an antimicrobial for sore throats.

Ginkgo Biloba Std. Ext. #50 by Nature’s Way Herbs: Used to increase blood flow to the head and butt muscles. I use it for memory on “brain fog” days. Do not use if you are on blood thinners.

Glandulars/Protomorphogens from Standard Process labs www.standardprocess.com These have saved my life a time or two! My favorite products are listed on the Glandular/Protomorphogen handout.

Glucosamine Sulfate, Phytopharmica brand  The best darned glucosamine on the market. It is time-released and works better than any brand my clients have tried. A bit higher in price than the cheap crap, but you take less pills and they are more effective, so overall you are paying less and you’ll be happier with the results. I carry this most all the time as we use it, too!

Goldenseal Root #50 Capsule Bottle by Nature’s Way: Always get the root as it is stronger. I suspect this one may be cut with something or be a lower quality product because the stuff I order in bulk cost me $250 per pound! My clients use it all the time and swear by it. It should only be taken for short periods of time and not for more than 10 days in a row by itself.

Gymnema #100 Capsules by Nature’s Way: Great for insulin resistance and diabetes. Must be used on a long-term basis. It also comes in a tincture form, which you can use prior to eating anything with sugar on it. It acts to numb the sweet taste buds on your tongue and helps you cut back on sugar cravings. Want some more options? See my handout on Sugar Substitutes

H

Halvah for Seasonal Affective Disorder (available through your local health food store, or grocery store in the Jewish food section) Or through www.joyva.com. I used to have SAD. Don’t anymore. I have helped so many people with this one product. Anything with sesame seeds is OK if you don’t like to eat the sugar. I just can’t say enough good things about this product.

Hawthorn #90 Standardized by Nature’s Way Herbs: Used to build up heart tissue, although my favorite product to use with this product is Standard Process Labs’ Cardio Plus because it has glandulars and CoQ-10 in it that make everything work better and the cell replacement healthier.

Homeopathics from Professional Complementary Health Formulations (sold to professionals only–like me, but you can take a peak here) www.professionalformulas.com I’d never be without these. I’m a chemical sensitive person. I take a set of them with me when I travel and use a variety of homeopathic’s from this company to keep me going and free of my many allergies. If you would like to read more about using homeopathics, click here.

Horse chestnut Cream by Planetary Formulations—Great for painful varicose veins. Just rub a little on the tender areas each night.

Horsetail Grass (Equisetum) #100 Capsule Bottle by Nature’s Way: Used for soft nails as it contains lots of silica. Many enjoy it as a tea as well. I don’t think it has a very meaningful taste.

Humic Shale Minerals for your garden from Live Earth Products. The soil conditioner product is made out of humic shale and a great way to add back all the trace minerals to the soil that your garden plot may be depleted in. A bag doesn’t cost much, but the shipping is huge as it weighs about 80 pounds/bag! www.livearth.com Live Earth Products, Inc. 400 S. 200 E.  Emery, UT 84522 (435) 286-2222. A bag is $8.00, but you have to pay UPS shipping, which can run some bucks.

Hydrangea Root #100 Nature’s Way Herbs. This is my most favorite herb to dissolve kidney stones. It does take time (as natural medicine always does) so if you are having acute pain, sometimes the medical system is the best route. This treatment usually takes about 3-4 months to dissolve the stones and crystals. You will want to drink distilled water and cut back on the coffee and especially the soda pop as this leaches minerals out of the system and causes stone formation. I carry it in bulk as well.

Hyland’s Household Kit 30X It comes with a booklet on how to use the most common homeopathic formulas. Wonderful starter kit. I’ve had mine for years and refill it with individual formulas often. If you would like to read more about using homeopathics, click here.

I

Ignatia Amara 30X, Hyland’s #250 Tab. Bottle—This homeopathic is used for sadness and the grieving process.  Also used for mental and physical exhaustion, hiccoughs, long/troublesome dreams and excessive jerking of the limbs upon falling asleep.

If you would like to read more about using homeopathics, click here.

Ipecac 30X Hyland’s #250 Tab. Bottle—Used for vomiting and nausea, bright red nosebleeds, asthma, incessant and violent coughing, laryngitis and abdominal pain.

Kali Mur 30X Hyland’s #500 Tab. Bottle Kali Muriaticum (Potassium Chloride) has a special affinity for fibrin and is useful in diseases causing blisters such as chickenpox, measles, burns and scalds. It is also used for jaundice, acne, and asthma. To read more about cell salts and what they do, click here.

Kelp #180 Capsule Bottle by Nature’s Way Herbs: Used for sub-clinical thyroid problems (like when you walk with your palms facing behind you, which is a sign of early thyroid disease.) I also carry this in bulk. To find out they symptoms of thyroid disease and other supplements to treat it, click here.

Kyo Green 5oz. Bottle—Great alkalizing product, but a bit spendy. Barfy Green Stuff is definitely cheaper! Lots of people use this in their natural cancer therapies. It tastes rather “green” so I mix it with Clamato juice. Some of my clients prefer mixing it with prune juice. Bleck!

L

L-Arginine 500mg #100 Twin Lab. Arginine is known as an immune enhancer. It increases the size and activity of the thymus gland. It is also good for live disorders and in the production of seminal fluid which nourishes sperm. Most people that need it in my practice are using it in their body for the processing of nitrogen…a breakdown of muscle and protein. It is also used in the production of certain hormones and along with other enzymes. It is overrated when advertised as a libido enhancer.

L-Carnitine 250mg #60 Twin Lab. this is an important amino acid, but doesn’t work like the ads say for taking away muscle pain associated with exercise. Vegetarians are more likely to be deficient in this amino acid because it is high in meat.

L-Cysteine 500mg #60 Twin Lab. Helps with detoxification, protects against radiation damage. A great free-radical destroyer. Used of rheumatoid arthritis, hardening of the arteries, an cancer. Promotes healing. My clients often test they need it as a fat-burner. Not good for diabetics as it may inactivate insulin and it may cause cysteine kidney stones in those with that particular genetic defect.

L-Glycine— I carry this as a free-form amino acid in my practice for irritable bowel syndrome. It seems to work well (if your body needs it.)

L-Lysine 500mg #100 Twin Lab–Used for herpes infections. It also helps with calcium absorption and the maintenance of proper nitrogen balance in adults. Aids in the production of antibodies, hormones and enzymes. helps in collagen formation and tissue repair.  Click on the product picture to order.

L-Ornithine 500mg. #100 Twin Lab. In my practice, those people who test they need this non-essential amino acid seem to need it for helping with sleep. I’ve read that it helps prompt the release of growth hormone and that it is necessary for proper immune and liver function, but I think we must get most of what we need from our diets. It is synthesized from Arginine and serves as  a building block to some of the other amino acids. Children, pregnant women, nursing mothers and schizophrenics should not take this supplement.

L-Taurine 500mg #50 Twin Lab (AKA Mega Taurine) for the eyes. Lack of Taurine in the cat causes blindness and an enlarged heart. Many years ago researchers found that there was not enough Taurine in dog food. People were feeding their cats dog food because it was cheaper (didn’t have as much protein in it) so the cats were getting sick. Natural sources of Taurine seem sufficient for most as we eat lots of eggs, fish, meat and milk.

L-Tyrosine 500mg. #100 Twin Lab. this is an important amino acid. Tyrosine is a precursor of the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and dopamine. What does that mean to you? It helps to regulate mood and prevents depression among its other benefits. It is high in pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds (one huge reason why I recommend Halvah.) Lots of clients test they need this in natural forms. Blood Type B people don’t do well with it.

Lithium Orotate #100 Tab bottle. Studies show those places that are low in lithium have higher rates of anger and violent crimes. Often, people who have had near-death experiences crave high lithium foods like lemons.  I don’t carry this at my practice but you should be able to find it online somewhere.

Lutein #100 Capsules TwinLab Used for eye challenges. Acts as a potent antioxidant. Helps with retinal damage and in macular degeneration. Lutein is in the Ocuguard Plus formula. It is found naturally in spinach, kale, fruits and vegetables.

Licorice Root #100 Capsule Bottle by Nature’s Way Herbs. Promotes adrenal gland function. Beneficial for allergies, asthma, chronic fatigue, hypoglycemia and inflammatory bowel disorders. Popularly used as a treatment for ulcers (although I think Okra Pepsin is more effective.) Contraindicated during pregnancy and in people with diabetes, glaucoma, heart disease, high blood pressure. It can cause high blood pressure.

M

Magnet for back pain– Find a Nikken distributor in your area and support them as they work hard! Or check out their company at www.nikken.com Item # 1447. Both my husband and I take this product wherever we go and slap it onto anything that hurts. We wear it under our legs when we are driving and on our backs while sitting for long periods of time to increase circulation.

Magnetic necklace for energy and migraines. I don’t have migraines, but I find that if I take the necklace off for a week or so that my mind is not as clear, so I wear mine all the time.

Mag. Phos. 30X Hyland’s #500 Tab. Bottle.  A craving for beer may mean a Magnesia Phosphorica (Magnesium phosphate.) It is often used for headaches, rheumatic pains, throat spasms, muscle cramps, hiccough, squinting, teething, enlarged prostate glands, colic asthma spasmodic palpitation of the heart, yawning and insomnia.  To read more about cell salts and what they do, click here.

Master Mind Journals www.churchoftoday.com/mmj.htm Great affirmations and lots of writing room. Good for those goal-oriented people.

Mineral Gel, Tea Tree Icy 4oz. Jason great for rubbing into sore backs. Smells like wintergreen. We use this often at our house for back pain. Smells like wintergreen.

Missing Link, Canine 1# Canister—For making raw food diets and for skin disease.

Moducare #90 An immune-stimulant and modulator, which means that it will either stimulate or calm the nervous system as the body needs.

MSM 750mg. #240 Tabs from Source Natural. I’m sure that any high-quality brand would work. The powdered stuff tastes awful. This product best works for arthritis when the body also has skin problems, humans and dogs, but not with cats. Cats don’t process sulfur well (therefore onions are toxic to cats as they contain lots of sulfur and this causes damage to the red blood cells.)

Myrrh Gum Powder #100 Nature’s Way Herbs—I carry this in bottles and in bulk. It is my secret weapon for yeast infections in adults and in dogs.

N

Nat. Mur 30X Hyland’s #500 Tab. Bottle.  Natrum Phosphoricum (Sodium Phosphate) helps to convert lactic acid into its byproducts. It is used for gout, inflammatory rheumatism, high cholesterol, acid blood, headaches on the top of the head, bad breath, pain on the inside of the eyeballs, red blotched tongues with a yellow root, nausea, and habitual constipation.

Nutribiotic Liquid 4oz. –Great for warts, as a vegetable wash, in juice for yeast/viruses.

Nutribiotic Shower Gel, Original–Great for acne, whiteheads and skin blemishes.  Nutribiotic Shower Gel, Vanilla is my favorite, but I can’t seem to keep it on the shelf!

Nutribiotic tablets #100 Tablet bottle good for some viral and yeast infections.

Nux Vomica 30X Hyland’s #250 Tab. Bottle.  Used for headaches caused from over-indulgence in rich food or drink, splitting pain in the back of the head and over the eyes, frontal pain with the desire to press the head against something, scalps sore to the touch, headaches caused from sunshine and stomach problems associated with headaches casing nausea, dizziness, vomiting and wanting to vomit but unable to. Also for morning sickness. It is also useful for rectal itching, hemorrhoids, feelings that your bowels have not emptied, asthma attacks, insomnia caused from mental strain and some types of coughs. I like this homeopathic. It is included in the Household Kit. If you would like to read more about using homeopathics in general, click here.

O

Ocuguard Plus #120 TwinLab—Over the years I’ve found that this product is really good. It contains Lutein and lots of minerals to support the retina. TwinLab also carries the regular formula (no Plus,) but it does not usually test strong on my clients.

Oil, Almond by Flora—A light oil used for skin care and massage. I put this oil in my granola recipe.

Oil, Sesame, 8 oz. by Flora—A light oil used for skin care and massage. I use it in my recipes as well.

Oil, Sunflower, 8.5oz by Flora—A good oil used for some skin diseases and mild winter depression (when Halvah isn’t needed.)

Old Dog Formula (my own special formula of ginkgo, yucca and Siberian ginseng). I designed it for the old dogs in my practice but shouldn’t have been surprised to find the human “old dogs” were taking it too. Works in both humans and dogs.

Olive Leaf—This is a wonderful antioxidant for much of the population. It helps to lower blood pressure and has a calming effect. Good for people who don’t have a bowel movement every day (of course those types are also prone to high blood pressure, cancer and skin disease, so that would make sense.) Suited for today’s busy and stressful lifestyle. I carry it in bulk capsule form.

Osteo-Guard One-to-One AMNI #120—An effective calcium supplement.

Osteo-Guard Plus w/ Ipriflavone (Calcium Hydroxyapatite) AMNI People with brittle bones often test they need this kind of calcium, but I back it up with Ionic Minerals as well.

P

Papaya Tabs #600 American Health (Used for anyone who has had or has a tendency for cancer to help digest proteins in the body and to get oxygen to the cells. Also great for people who have digestive disorders after eating–common in blood type A people over the age of 40.) They taste good and you’ll take them forever. Cheap, too!

Parsley Caps. #100 Nature’s Way Herbs: Great diuretic, full of minerals and natural calcium. Don’t take more than a whole bottle at once or it will work your kidneys too hard. OK…I’m joking. Kind of. Who would take enough parsley for it to be a problem? So, grow your own or buy organic. Parsley is packed with trace minerals. Most everybody benefits from this vegetable. Especially your pet dogs and those who have fluid retention and just about any kind of malady (heart disease, arthritis, diabetes.) To read more about parsley, see Product of the Month, Aug, 2006

Pau D’Arco 4 oz. Source Naturals Extract–Used for yeast, cancer viruses and as a nutty-flavor herbal tea. I like it. Keep refrigerated after opening. It is also good mixed with Willard Water and can be used topically for yeast and other infections. To read more about this product see the February 2006 Newsletter.

PB-8 Probiotic #120 Vegicaps by Nutrition Now.  These types of probiotics usually contain several species of Lactobacilli which assist in digesting proteins in the gut. Healthy gut flora consists of 85% Lactobacilli and 15 % E. coli. Imbalances of these percentages can lead to gas, bloating, intestinal toxicity, constipation, malabsorption (check those fingernails of yours. If they have vertical ridging, you are not absorbing your nutrients well.) You can’t get enough Lactobacillus for an imbalanced GI tract with yogurt alone. You need more organisms.  This also helps combat yeast.  Store in a cool, dry place. Do not freeze. Take in conjunction with antibiotics, but it works best on an empty stomach.

PGF-400, AMNI—this is a popular oral chelator, but if the blood vessels are really plugged up with cholesterol, intravenous Chelation is the better way to go.

Pines Green Energy Barley Grass: An alkalizing drink used for the treatment of chronic diseases such as cancer (that’s probably why it cost so much, huh?)—Barfy Green Stuff is much cheaper and more effective.

Poke Root Extracts. I use this in my smoothies often. It makes your lymph system more efficient and liquidy. Great for fibroids in the breast and in lymphatic diseases. If the tops of your feet are tender to massage, reflexology and touch, this indicates sludging lymph. I carry the Medi-Herb brand and dispense it into 1 ounce bottles. a little goes a long way.

Pretty Hands and Feet dry skin remover Get this product through your local Rite-Aid store. Man, does it whip off those calluses in a hurry. You must apply it to dry skin then rinse it off. One treatment per day. It may take 3-4 days to get them down, but they won’t come back. I think it’s pretty safe…I don’t react to it and my clients haven’t reacted either. Check the Newsletter Archives Product of the Month to read more about this product.

Program flea product. This is the absolute safest product on the market for flea control. Only problem is, you can’t give it to flea allergic pets because it doesn’t prevent the fleas from biting and causing a reaction in your pet. Darn it.

Q, R

Radical Fighters #100 Capsule bottle by TwinLab. This seems to be a high quality potent antioxidant that is safe for many people.

Red Clover Blossoms #100 Capsule Bottle by Nature’s Way: Antiviral/Antibacterial and a component of Jason Winters tea. Jason was given an immune-building formula by Native American people that helped with cancer. Red Clover Blossoms are still in his formula today although he had to remove one herb because of the FDA.

Red Raspberry Leaves #100 Nature’s Way Herbs: Great uterine tonic. It’s really cheaper to make your own tea, but if you don’t have any raspberry bushes, you’ll have to get some here. Also eating lots of raspberries will be helpful, only half the effectiveness, but if you are craving them, you might want to add in some Raspberry leaf to your supplements.

Red Yeast Rice #90 600mg. Capsule Bottle by Solaray is a good, high-quality, standardized brand as this is used as a medication to lower LDL cholesterol.

Rescue Remedy Spray Bach Rescue Remedy is great for stress, emotional distraught and grieving. A must for the holistic emergency kit!  Rescue Remedy is a combination of five flower essences and is really effective. It comes in drops, spray or cream and can be found in most health food sections and health food stores. The cost is about $9-15 depending on which form you choose to take it in. You use it as needed up to every 15 minutes if necessary. A little goes a long way. Works on animals, too! A must for your First Aid Kit (keep it away from strong odors and perfumes as it is a homeopathic).

Rutin #60 Tablets KAL brand–Used for bruising and weak blood vessels, like those think-skin bruises in older people and for nosebleeds.

S

Saw Palmetto #100 Nature’s Way Herbs: My feeling is that you should use a standardized form of Saw Palmetto as it is being used as a medication. When you get the cheap stuff, or an unknown brand, you don’t know the quality or if it has been contaminated with anything. You want it to work and you want to know you can count on it for treatment and prevention of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia and those elevated PSA tests.

Scar Massage Oil. I’ve seen scars go away years after the surgery with some daily massage and oil high in Vitamin E. Scars can be associated with pains in other areas of the body and they can hold emotional memory.

Senna Leaves #100 Nature’s Way Herbs: I use this to put into the Anti-constipation Paste recipe.

Siberian Ginseng (Eleuthero) #100 Nature’s Way Herbs. this herb is great for debilitating diseases and muscle-wasting due to aging. It increases the blood flow to the large muscles (especially in the butt) and helps with general overall maintenance. It is safe taken long-term and is also in the B-Stress formula.

Silica w/Bioflavonoids 500mg. #120 tab bottle-Alta Health This one does a great job in repairing soft nails.

Silicea 30X Hyland’s #500 Tab. Bottle.  Silicea (Silicic acid or silica) is used for fatigue, oversensitivity to noises, absentmindedness, crankiness, headaches from the nape of the neck to the top of the head and settling in one eye, nausea, nervous exhaustion, hair falling out, sties, floaters, sneezing, painful hemorrhoids, brittle nails with white spots and ribs and for weak ankles. To read more about cell salts and what they do, click here.

Silymarin Plus #60 Tab. Bottle by Source Naturals for liver detoxification

Slippery Elm Bark #100 Nature’s Way Herbs—I talk about this in my story, “Are You An Angel?” in the I Am a Miracle book. I purchase it in bulk, because I don’t like separating the capsules to make a little pile of it, but this is an important herb to have in your medicine cabinet for burns and sores that won’t heal.

Shower filter to remove chlorine. We carry a good-quality one for about $40. If you are showering without a filter like this you can be getting up to 80 glasses of chlorine through your skin with each hot shower. Chlorine has been proven to cause many types of cancer.

Sphingolin #240 Cap. Bottle by Ecological Formulations (for Multiple Sclerosis and other brain and nerve damaging disease processes.)

Stevia Liquid Conc. 1oz. by Planetary Formulations—An herbal sweetener with no calories. It comes in a liquid tincture, or little packets. Here’s the tincture. For more alternative sweeteners, click here.

Sulfur 30X Hyland’s #250 Tab. Bottle. This homeopathic is used for skin challenges–especially eczema, acne, styes and burning feet with offensive odor. It can also be used for sweet cravings, lactose intolerance, constipation, rectal fissures, feelings of ineffective emptying of the bowels, shortness of breath in the middle of the night that is relieved by sitting up, the craving for fats and feeling like you are famished at 11:00 a.m. Weird, huh? I find this homeopathy stuff fascinating. If you would like to read more about using homeopathics, click here.

Sun Box www.lighttherapyproducts.com I tried one of these for a week and I WANT one! They are awesome. Bright!! I decided that Halvah was cheaper though and works just as well.

Super Acidophilus #60 caps by Source Naturals—I always keep several kinds of acidophilus and probiotics on hand as many people don’t always test just one brand. This is a capsule form that often tests strong on my clients.

Super Green Food (I’d recommend Barfy Green Stuff–It’s cheaper!)

T

The Missing Link, Canine 1# Canister—For making raw food diets and for skin disease.

Tom’s of Maine toothpastes Fluoride Free toothpaste for my clients who are allergic:   And here’s one for thrush (yeast) and allergies. Fennel is for the taste, but by itself, it’s great for the people in our lives that pass copious amounts of gas. Myrrh is a good thing to scrub your dentures with as well.

Turmeric, Standardized #100 Capsules by Nature’s Way: Used as an antioxidant and for connective tissue cancers. The active component is Curcumin. Sometimes you will be able to find this product with that name.

U

Udo’s Choice products www.udoerasmus.com I know there’s a lot of stuff in the Blend and Oil, and it is good! Many of my clients (both human and animal) test they need this stuff. I have had a history of eczema for about 40 years. This stuff helped it out quite a bit. It makes my hair so soft and healthy, too. It’s a great balance of Omega Fatty Acids.

Udo’s Choice Oil Blend 32 oz. Great for using in making granola and for salad dressings, but taking it straight is gross. Ingredients: flax oil, sunflower oil, sesame oil, medium chain triglycerides (MCT), evening primrose oil, rice germ and bran oil, soy lecithin, D-alpha tocopherol (natural vitamin E), rosemary extract, oat germ, bran oil.

Udo’s Choice Oil Blend Capsules #180 These are awesome, especially for any skin disease in humans or pets. The body needs fatty acids to survive and is able to make all but two of them: linoleic acid, in the omega-6 family and linolenic acid, in the omega-3 family. These two fatty acids must be supplied by the diet and are therefore considered essential fatty acids (EFAs.) This product seems to have the perfect blend most people need.

Udo’s Choice Wholesome Fast Food Blend (great to put in smoothies) A blend of 50 different ingredients including whole food concentrates, vegetables, and phytonutrient-rich herbs. The constituents of this unique formula are of the finest quality, all natural, and primarily organic. Hints of cinnamon and almond add to the flavor.

V

Vaccine Nosodes: These homeopathic drops do several things. They take the negative additives in the vaccines out of the body, they can be used to treat these specific diseases, or (used routinely and persistently) they can act as a natural vaccine.

Viral Immune System Stimulator Drops: A must-have for your First Aid kid. Cost $15/2oz. bottle. Homeopathic drops to treat a host of infections (including food poisoning). I recommend these and. . .

Bacterial System Stimulator drops for all of the clients who use me. I let them call me (no charge) and ask, “Which drop do I use? Viral or Bacterial? My kid is sick, I don’t feel well, my partner is under the weather, etc.”

Valerian Root Powder #100 Nature’s Way Herbs: Calming, can be a sleep-aid, OK as a mild muscle-relaxant. Tastes horrid, so swallow fast and with some liquid that is electrically charged like juice or carbonated anything.

Vitamin C-500 with Polyflavonoids by Nature’s Way. Helps the immune system and acts as an antioxidant. It is essential for ovarian function, ovulation, healthy motile sperm, production of sex hormones, production of collagen and helps prevent stretch marks (also need Zinc.) vitamin C is needed for healthy adrenal function. Note: Ascorbic Acid is NOT the same as whole food Vitamin C which contains associated bioflavonoids.

Vitamin C 100mg w/Cit/Bio #100 TwinLab

Vitamin E Dry, (Also known as, Dry E) 400 IU #100 Solaray—I like this especially for Blood Type O people because they are allergic to the tartaric acid in the gel capsules of regular vitamin E and sometimes they don’t get enough Vitamin E from eating nuts, seeds and grains, or they need it as an antioxidant for other health reasons.

Vitamin K 100mcg Vitamin Shoppe brand for women who bleed too much and too long, and I use these as an antidote for rat poisoning (only after giving a shot of vitamin K as time is of the essence here and animals who eat mice who have eaten DeCon will die within a matter of a few short days.)

W

White Oak Bark #100 Nature’s Way Herbs: Used for gum disease. You open the capsules and pack the gums before you go to bed. Leave the powder on the gum line all night, then rinse it off in the morning. Repeat for about 1-2 months. It pulls the gums back to the teeth and draws out all kinds of infection. As one of my client says, “$1600 worth of gum work, or $1.65 worth of White Oak Bark. I chose the White Oak Bark. Thanks, Denice!”

White Willow Bark #100 Nature’s Way Herbs: This is what they made the original aspirin out of. Natural aspirin without the side effects. You may need to take a couple more capsules than aspirin.

Willard Water, 4oz. Clear was featured in the February , 2006 Newsletter.

X, Y

Yellow Dock Root #100 Nature’s Way Herbs Yellow Dock is used as a liver cleanser and blood purifier. Also used for skin cases and it is also very high in iron. I use it for some cases of arthritis.

Yogi Ginger Tea #16 Bags Yogi Teas—Great for circulation, stomach upset and nausea. It helps with spasms and cramps, acts as an antioxidant, is great for bowel disorders, hot flashes, morning sickness and acts as an antimicrobial for sore throats. Read the full product page on Ginger here.

Yucca #100 Nature’s Way Herbs . A blood purifier beneficial in the treatment of arthritis, osteoporosis and inflammatory disorders. It works best for active arthritis. I use it in my Old Dog Formula as well.

Z

Zone Perfect Bars #12  I tradeoff between Balance Gold and Zone Perfect bars because they are both Zone-Balanced and keep your insulin levels constant so that you don’t snack on sweets all the time. I recommend 1/2 bar per night as a snack for my diabetic cases. Dr. Sears’ work has shown that a zone-balanced snack before bedtime does quite well in stabilizing insulin levels.

Zucchini (organic or home-grown it best!) Most of my client’s test this is a good vegetable for them. I think it’s the dark skin which is high in minerals that they need. I like it raw or steamed with a bit of butter/Celtic sea salt and pepper on it. We also love it as part of our Barbecued Vegetables which are a staple for us in the summer months.
