My experiences in, and becoming aware of my need to be prepared, & preparing things my family depends on in the event of an emergency or disaster. There are plenty of how-to sites to do a lot of stuff. This is not one of those. This is a how-we-do-it site. My goal is to lessen my dependence on immediate supply and demand industry. Id like to be able to share this with you and give you ideas of what works for someone else. Enjoy!
Most of the reason Ive educated myself in herbs was to help the issues
that my dear husband struggles with. But for whatever reason the more
you try to convince *ahem* certain types of people what is good for
them, the more they dig in their heels. Such is the case. But recently a
breakthrough has occurred and because of increasing pain due to work
conditions and diet, we have finally started addressing these issues
with a wonderful cleansing, healing formula from Dr. Christopher.
My husband has had problems with his kidneys from the beginning of his life. At 5 months old he was Rock Island Illinois youngest kidney patient. Because of several accidents, he's gone through shunts and hydronephrosis (retaining urine), kidney stones by the scores, and as of a couple of years ago a nuclear test showed three masses in his left kidney either calcification's or cysts. At one point at 17 a doctor recommended that the kidney be removed. Thankfully (although he wouldn't agree) it was left intact.
Personally I have used this formula for kidney infections, and track infections (UTI) in myself and my daughter. Ive given it to my in-laws for kidney stones and also severe UTI, working miracles every time. But what about a severe case such as kidney calcification or cysts? Well I'm happy to report it works just as well and brings wonderful relief. Dear husbands kidneys have been overactive lately and have been giving him many pains due to extra water he was taking in at his very physical job. Usually his beverage of choice is Pepsi. Breakfast. Lunch. Dinner. Snack. Drinking any kind of water actually hurts his kidneys because he knows they start getting rid of all the gunk built up inside. Needless to say he avoids water at (almost) every turn.
So with his arm behind his back with a promise NEVER to mention herbs to him again in my life, I bribed him to try them FAITHFULLY and see what happened. WOW was he amazed! Although he had to take more capsules more frequently than an average Joe, they relieved the pain of the overactive kidneys. He finally found an avenue of relief. Now if I can convince him to keep taking them even when they don't hurt him to clean up the condition even better.... we'll see.
This formula is sold wherever Dr. Christopher products are sold. HERE is where I buy some formulas that I don't make myself. This is one of the first few formulas that I did purchase ingredients in bulk for, so I make my own and encapsulate them. And by the way- encapsulators are great for being able to get the formulas tweaked to your own liking and needs. If you get very far into herbs one is wonderful to have.
LONG LIVE HERBAL GEEKS!
