Natural Options for Weight Management
1. NHS Supplement - Thin & Natural – This supplement boosts your metabolism while suppressing your appetite. It contains the following amino acids with their specific benefits:
- Tyrosine - a precursor to thyroid hormones which control metabolism
- Leucine - to help regulate blood sugar and burn visceral fat
- Taurine - to boost fat metabolism
- Serine - a precursor for the synthesis of serotonin, the hormone responsible for the feeling of satisfactorily full
And, it contains herbs that help:
- Regulation of blood sugar
- Mood elevation
- All of the above are very important for the health of someone losing weight.
2. NHS Magnetic/Infra-red Sleep System – Our system consists of a magnetic mattress pad, a space age foam magnetic pillow and a special comforter, which has far infra-red properties for acid neutralization (i.e.: detoxification). How our magnetic mattress helps in weight management:
- Magnetic fields near the head induce your brain to secrete more melatonin, the hormone that makes you sleep. Sleeping enough and well encourages your body to make more of a hormone called leptin, which reduces your appetite. Poor sleep causes your body to make more of a different hormone, ghrelin, which makes you hungry.
- Fat deposits regress over several weeks when exposed to a negative magnetic field (which will be provided by the mattress pad)
- It is important to treat fat deposits at night while there is sufficient human growth hormone (HGH) to burn the fat. Note: Although there are no studies regarding this theory, there is significant anecdotal evidence that magnetic therapy assists in weight loss. Reference: Magnet Therapy. William H. Philpott, M.D., and Dwight K. Kalita, Ph. D.p 159-162.
- Extra Benefit: You should need about ½ hr. less in bed each day to accomplish the rest you need, due to your more efficient sleep cycle.
- Far infrared Comforter: Far infrared material has the ability to neutralize acids in the body, creating a more alkaline environment.Dr Robert Young, author of "The pH Miracle" has been saying this for years - "Obesity is an acid problem, the fat is saving our lives" because it is storing acids and toxins that would otherwise be roaming our bodies. By reducing acids (i.e.: toxins in our bodies) we are able to reduce our fat storage.
3. NHS Mag-Filtered Water System – Sensations of thirst and hunger are generated simultaneously by the brain when it feels that energy levels are too low for it to function properly. However, most people do not recognize this sensation as thirst, so they often confuse thirst with hunger. By drinking water before you eat, you can separate the two sensations and reduce the amount of food you need to feel full. Also, drinking on full glass of water before each meal improves digestive function and reduces appetite.
Our Mag-Filtered Water System filters out the chlorine and chlorine by-products, while leaving in the minerals needed to help alkalize the body. It also uses a magnetic field to break-up clumps of water molecules, making them more bio-available for the cells. If you are properly hydrated, your urge to eat is decreased.

4. CardioStride Weighted Shoes – These athletic shoes weigh about 2.5 to 3 pounds each. Their primary benefit is that they raise your metabolic level during and following exercise, so that 30 minutes of walking in them provides about the same calorie burn as walking in regular athletic shoes for about 200 minutes. A good weight management program always includes exercise, which strengthens muscles and promotes weight loss, plus the many other physiological benefits, including better sleep.
5. Natural Health Solutions Wellness Daily Nutrition Kit - Whenever you go on a weight management program, it is very important that you receive all the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids and nutrients that the body requires to stay healthy. Providing these components of a good nutritional foundation will help reduce food cravings because your body’s basic needs will have been met. Included in our Nutrition kit are bottles of these 3 essential supplements, each in bottles of 60 capsules:
- Natural Complete -- a whole foods based Vitamin & Mineral supplement. The whole foods formulation maximizes the bio-availability of the nutrients in this supplement (vs. the chemically based ingredients found in most supplements, such as Centrum or One-A-Day). Note: Muscle Response testing confirms this additional benefit. For most clients, our Vitamin/Mineral will test about +60%, and the chemically based vitamin/mineral supplements will test about – 20%, similar to processed sugar, a known negative. Natural Complete should also provide more energy for everyday life to those individuals who feel they need some additional energy. This additional energy will give you the power to do more of the things you want, maintain a better/happier attitude, and burn more calories all the while.
- Natural Omega Complex – Essential Omega fish oils in a powdered form to reduce the reflux (bad taste) associated with liquid capsules. These Omega fatty acids cannot be made by the body (thus the term “Essential”). They are critical to most body functions, especially brain function. They are a major factor in improving one’s sense of well being/happiness.
- Men’s Natural – Prostate Support, to improve sexual function and keep the prostate healthy.
- Or, Women’s Natural -- Hormonal Support, to help a woman’s body make the hormones it needs to function well. Among other benefits, supports kidney and adrenal function. While this formulation is helpful to any women beyond puberty, it is especially helpful to menopausal and post-menopausal women.
6, Detoxification – Detoxifying the body can help the body shed water weight that may be required to dilute the body’s acidity. Most of the products recommended above help the detoxification process, especially the water and far-infrared comforter, which is a component of the sleep system. Additional benefits may be achieved through the following products:
- Garlic Complex Supplement – Combining deodorized garlic and blue green algae, this supplement cleans and thins the blood. It is a mild oral chelator, which means it latches onto toxins in your circulatory system and helps eliminate them from the body. Cost = $20.95 on autoship
- Detox-ion Pads – These pads, which are placed on the soles of your feet before you go to bed, attract and capture toxins from your circulatory and lymphatic systems while you sleep. You will notice that the pad is dark and” tarry” in the morning. The darkness of the used pads should decrease with use, as toxins are reduced. We recommend using them for 3 weeks. This use period requires 4 packs of 10 to accomplish 20 nights of application. We would recommend using an additional pack every 6 months to maintain your alkaline body chemistry.
