Q: What’s the best way to strengthen my immune system?

A: By making sure the right things go into your diet, including high quality, whole foods based supplements to improve baseline nutrition. This includes significant amounts of vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E and a good mix of B vitamins and minerals. Since sugar suppresses white cell activity, which is directly related to immune system performance, reducing sugar intake is important, as well. Research also shows that selected mushrooms contain powerful immune stimulating properties. Natural Health Solutions supplements, such as Natural Complete Vitamin/Mineral Formula, Natural Garlic Complex and Nature Shield Immune Support, all boost the immune system, enhancing the body’s ability to fight disease.

 

Q: What can I do to lower cholesterol naturally?

A: Calcium allows you to excrete more saturated fat and lowers cholesterol absorption. Garlic has been Doctor recommended to reduce the LDL cholesterol and help lower blood pressure. Dehydration can cause the body to lay down cholesterol in a defense mechanism to protect cells from water loss. Water that has been filtered and passed through a magnetic field is more bio-availabile to your cells. NHS supplements, Natural Calcium Plus and Natural Garlic Complex, are excellent choices to help lower cholesterol. NHS Mag-Water Filtration system creates clean, energized water for improved cell hydration.

 

Q: Is there anything I can do to help my arthritis using natural products?

A: One of the reasons for high blood pressure is the blood vessels’ inability to dilate. Nitric oxide is the substance that causes vaso-dilation in our bodies. It is made by the body from the amino acid arginine, which we get from the protein we eat. By supplementing your intake of natural arginine, through our Cardio-Natural powder supplement, you should be able to improve your overall circulation, with its many benefits, including the reduction of blood pressure. This concept is supported by Nobel Prize winning research. Additionally, magnets have the ability to release nitric oxide in your body, thereby improving circulation. Thus, sleeping on our magnetic mattress pad can have great benefits for improved daily recovery and body function. Improving the quantity and quality of your water intake can also play a significant part in reducing blood pressure. Our Mag-Filtered Water Purification System can help you accomplish this.

 

Q: How can I minimize my risk for getting cancer?

A: Cancer patients commonly have a much more acidic body chemistry than healthy people. In 1931, Dr. Otto Warberg won the Noble Prize in Medicine for his research into cancer and its ideal growing environment. He concluded that cancer grows best in an acidic environment. Therefore, to minimize cancer risks, you should keep your body more alkaline. To accomplish this goal, eat more alkalizing foods, such as green leafy vegetables and fruits, and reduce your intake of acid-forming foods, such as sugars, margarine, sodas and processed foods. Far infrared material, which is found in our comforter, has the ability to neutralize acids and toxins in the body while you sleep.

 

Q: I’ve tried everything but I still can’t lose weight. Any suggestions?

A: Four suggestions top the list. 1) Make sure you stay well-hydrated with filtered water – preferably from a filter that uses strong magnets to break up large clumps of water molecules, such as our Mag-Filtered Water system. You need lots of clean, energized water to break down fatty tissues, and to flush toxins and waste from your body. A build up of toxins in your body can cause your body to retain extra water (weight) in an effort to dilute the toxins and acidity. 2) Eat healthy foods (including whole foods based supplements) to raise your pH into the alkaline range (above 7pH), and to boost your energy level. This means eating more vegetables and less meat and sugar, because if your pH is low, your body will not break down fat as effectively. 3) Exercise, at least some minimal amount, a few days per week. 4) Be sure you get enough sleep. Poor sleep quantity and/or quality causes the body to secrete hormones that make you hungry. Natural Health Solutions can help you in all 4 of these important areas for losing weight.

 

Q: I have high blood pressure and my doctor wants to put me on pharmaceuticals. I don’t want to take them because they have nasty side-effects. What can I do instead?

A: One of the reasons for high blood pressure is the blood vessels’ inability to dilate. Nitric oxide is the substance that causes vaso-dilation in our bodies. It is made by the body from the amino acid arginine, which we get from the protein we eat. By supplementing your intake of natural arginine, through our Cardio-Natural powder supplement, you should be able to improve your overall circulation, with its many benefits, including the reduction of blood pressure. This concept is supported by Nobel Prize winning research. Additionally, magnets have the ability to release nitric oxide in your body, thereby improving circulation. Thus, sleeping on our magnetic mattress pad can have great benefits for improved daily recovery and body function. Improving the quantity and quality of your water intake can also play a significant part in reducing blood pressure. Our Mag-Filtered Water Purification System can help you accomplish this.

 

Q: I need help with my memory. I feel like I’m losing my mind sometimes. Any ideas?

A: Yes there are a number of approaches to assisting with memory and mental function. One is to sleep on a mattress and pillow containing magnets, since this increases circulation to the brain which is very beneficial to nerve cells. Increased circulation to the brain also produces more melatonin, the hormone responsible for sleep. Another approach is to supplement with garlic, because it makes blood platelets less sticky therefore increasing blood flow. NHS offers Natural Garlic Complex and an array of useful magnetic mattress pads and pillows that can help with memory. The amino acid arginine and Omega 3 fatty acids can also be very important, and can be obtained through our Cardio-Natural and Omega Complex Supplements.

 

Q: Lately I’ve been having trouble sleeping. What can I do for that?

A: Research indicates that magnetic fields improve circulation, allowing for more relaxed muscles and improved recovery from discomforts. Improving circulation in the brain can also benefit the secretion of melatonin, the hormone that induces sleep, which should significantly improve your sleep cycle. The far-infrared materials in our NHS sleep system help neutralize acids in the body, which can otherwise cause discomfort, thus adding to your sleep problems. Also, our Natural Calcium + supplement may also be of benefit to your sleep, as it helps calm the nerves.

 

Q: I have fibromyalgia, a very debilitating disease. I have seen doctor after doctor, and taken numerous drugs, without relief. Can you give me any advice?

A: Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome can occur, at least in part, as a result of nutritional deficiencies. Effective, Whole Food Based Nutritional Supplementation can help ensure that your body has the nutrition it needs to accomplish important healing and maintenance processes. NHS Natural Complete Vitamin & Mineral Supplement will ensure that you get the nutrients needed to rebuild your body. Our Ortho-Flex Supplement should be helpful in relieving discomfort, especially in the joints. Also, double blind studies on Fibromyalgia, conducted at the University of Virginia and Tufts University in Boston, concluded that “Magnet Therapy Reduced Fibromyalgia Pain.” NHS has magnetic sleep systems and other magnetic aids for relief of fibromyalgia discomfort.

 

Q: How can I tell if a supplement contains all the ingredients that the label states?

A: There are 2 basic types or qualities of supplements, food grade and pharmaceutical grade. Food grade has much lower standards of accuracy than pharmaceutical grade. Most common supplements are made to food grade standards. Pharmaceutical grade supplements must be 98% accurate, from a labeling standpoint. These higher quality supplements, which include all of our supplements, are made to cGMP standards in an FDA inspected facility. All of our supplements are made here in the United States.

 

Q: I eat very well. Why should I take supplements?

A: By eating well, you have certainly added benefits to your health. But our soils are depleted of minerals, we use pesticides on our crops, we feed our meat sources hormones and antibiotics, and we add preservatives, dyes and artificial flavorings - just to mention a few of the problems with our food supplies. Therefore, it is important to take a good multi-vitamin & mineral supplement to ensure good baseline nutrition. Natural Health Solutions offers the best multi-vitamin & mineral formula (Natural Complete) that we have been able to find, based on muscle response testing.

 

Q: What type of multi vitamin/mineral supplement do you recommend?

A: A Whole Foods based supplement. Nature is a very smart lady. She has made whole foods complete with the synergistic interaction of all components of vitamins, minerals, proanthocyanidins, anthocyanidins, pycnogenol, quercetin, rutin, hesperidin, citrus bioflavonoids, polyphenols , and amino acids, plus the yet undiscovered beneficial substances. Would it not be better to take a whole food supplement based on Mother Nature’s plan, than the chemically based supplements that are so common? Our Natural Complete is a whole food based multi-vitamin & mineral that includes broccoli, cabbage, carrots, beets, parsley, papaya, celery, spinach and tomato, all perfect foods according to Mother Nature.

 

Q: Is there anything natural that can help with menopause instead of taking hormone replacement therapy?

A: There are several herbs, vitamins and minerals that help with the symptoms of menopause. For example, the herb Radix Angelica Sinensi is hormone balancing and relaxes smooth muscles in the intestines and uterus. Black Cohosh competes in vitro with 17-beta-estradiol for estrogen receptor binding sites and therefore acts as a female reproductive tonic. And, Wild Yam is an antispasmodic, which helps with cramping and relief of menopausal symptoms. Our Women’s Natural supplement contains these herbs plus more vitamins, herbs and minerals that together help alleviate menopausal symptoms without harmful hormones. It also supports effective kidney functioning, which can decline during and after menopause. This supplement is helpful to all women beyond puberty, but is especially helpful to those who are passing through or have passed through menopause.

 

Q: Is there a simple test that I can use to determine which supplements should be of most benefit to me?

A: Yes. You can confirm your body’s need for any food or supplement using a simple muscle response test (also known as Applied Kinesiology). This procedure is used by most herbalists, naturopathic physicians, and many chiropractors. Click here for instructions on how to do this testing.

 

Q: Are these products FDA approved?

A: The FDA does not review or express an opinion on the efficacy of most nutritional supplements or other “alternative” health products. Similarly, they have not expressed any opinions about the effectiveness of the products that we offer. Natural products are not patentable, for the most part, and thus they are not able to generate the revenues that would pay for the FDA approval process, which is extremely lengthy and costly.
