Echinacea, Elderflower & Elderberry - Important Covid-19 Info

I am writing this in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic that's hitting the world hard.  We have received some conflicting information as to whether Echinacea, Elderflower (which we use in our Cold & Flu Tincture), and Elderberry are safe and appropriate for viral infections, namely the Covid-19 infection.  There has been some conjecture as to whether Covid-19 could cause a "cytokine storm" which means an over-response by the immune system.  As this virus is so new, not much is known about it yet and whether this is true or not.  Some have expressed concern that these herbs might further stimulate the immune system and cause an over-reaction, making a cytokine storm worse.  After doing some exhaustive research, I have new and interesting information for you on this.  These are my findings:

TINCTURES: What's a dropperful? It doesn't fill up the whole glass tube!

People are commonly confused when they read tincture directions suggesting they take a "dropperful" or two of a tincture.  When they squeeze the bulb on the droppertop, they are surprised to see that it fills the glass tube only a little bit of the way.  They try to squeeze harder to try to fill it completely, but it never works.  This is why:

Immune System - Tips for Staying Healthy

Reiki - what is it and how can it help me?

What is Reiki?

Reiki is an energetic healing art with its roots in ancient Japan.  The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word Rei (meaning Universal Life) and Ki (meaning energy).  Together Reiki literally means Universal Life Energy.

Labor Induction

I remember the last several weeks of my pregnancy. They seemed to take FOREVER!  I was carrying a 9-1/2 pound baby and was SO incredibly uncomfortable! Any fear of labor was gone - I just wanted this baby OUT. As hard as it is to wait though, it is so worth it.

Fertility & Hormones

This has always mystified me.  I've talked to A LOT of women who are working on fertility - trying to become pregnant - who have worked with fertility clinics.  Frequently, they say the doctors don't check for hormone imbalance!  This is a huge factor in whether a woman can become pregnant or not!  If there is hormone imbalance, perhaps she may not be ovulating, or her luteal phase (second half of the menstrual cycle, which comes after ovulation) isn't long enough.  These things can definitely hamper conception!

Testimonial

Pam, thank you so much! About a year ago, you counseled me about the wisdom of letting my body right itself after an IUD removal and not to worry, that our baby would come. Everything is playing out just like you said, all without medical intervention. Within 6 months of using your VitexPregnant Mother's Liver Tonic, and Preconception Tincture—the Hashimoto’s reversed and my thyroid numbers balanced themselves without any allopathic intervention!  In 6 more months, I now have my thick beautiful hair back and am newly pregnant with our first baby!  He or she is due in early December, so it will be the best Christmas ever for us!  L.C.
