SomaDerm™ Gel

Homeopathic Transdermal Human Growth Hormone

Denis Ouellette
November-December 2018 • Vol 3, No 101

NewULife’s SomaDerm Gel™ is the only transdermal, FDA registered product, containing homeopathic Human Growth Hormone (HGH), which is a single-chain peptide hormone produced from the pituitary gland, the master gland in the body. This is the hormone that helps you grow throughout childhood, hence the word “growth”.

Around the age of 20, HGH is at its peak, and then plummets around the age of 25. This is when the dreadful aging process begins, as this hormone slowly declines for the rest of your life. But don’t worry; growing isn’t the only thing HGH is good for. Many experts say that elevating growth hormone when you are older can bring back your levels to when you were in your 20’s.

Celery Is an Herb!

“The Gourmet Herbalist”

Marlenea La Shomb, ND
November-December 2018 • Vol 3, No 101

Celery is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory foods, because it starves unproductive bacteria, yeast, mold, fungus, and viruses that are present in the body and flushes their toxins and debris out of the intestinal tract and liver. Pathogens like these are so often the underlying cause of inflammation—in their absence, your body is much better able to handle whatever life throws your way. At the same time, celery helps good bacteria thrive.

Above is the opening paragraph on celery, Life-Changing Foods, Save Yourself and the Ones You Love with the Hidden Powers of Fruits and Vegetables, a #1 New York Times bestseller by Anthony William. He is known as the Medical Medium, also being called “the next Edgar Cayce.” Here are just a few highlights of what’s inside this book…

The Power of Garlic

“Garlic Is Divine!” —Anthony Bourdain

Crystal Maceira, LMT, MH
November-December 2018 • Vol 3, No 101

The late great Anthony Bourdain once wrote, “Garlic is divine. When handled correctly, few foods can taste so many distinct ways. Please, treat your garlic with respect…” While he was referring to garlic’s culinary uses, we will see here that the same is true of its herbal and medicinal uses.

In the previous issue, we highlighted the power of Lobelia. Garlic is another one of my favorite herbs. Since the holidays are coming up and the cold and flu season is upon us, it’s garlic’s turn to shine. You may already know that garlic is a wonder food, but I’m sure you will learn more about it before this article is through. For example, did you know that China produces some 80% of the world supply of garlic?

Lobelia: “One of the World’s Greatest Herbs”

Use with Caution!

Crystal Maceira, Master Herbalist
September-October 2018 • Vol 3, No 100

There is a controversy to how safe Lobelia is. Of the several beautiful varieties of this plant, Lobelia inflata is the one that has the medicinal values I will talk about today. Other common names for this herb are pukeweed and Indian tobacco. There are good reasons for this, which will be discussed here. This article will also discuss Lobelia itself, why it is considered safe, why others feel it is a poison, and famous herbalists’ experiences with it.

What Lobelia inflata? It is an annual or biennial, meaning it reseeds every year or two. It grows from 6 to 39 inches tall and has stems with tiny little hairs at the bottom, becoming smoother at the top, with light-blue or violet flowers that are asymmetrical and bisexual. Lobelia was named after Mattias de Lobel, a botanist who lived in the 17th century. The stems, leaves, flowers, and seeds are what is used. The main alkaloid is Lobeline, which is in the seed, but its other alkaloids include lobelacrin, lobelianin, and 14 pyridine alkaloids (with a total of 52 alkaloids). It also contains acids, fats and gum.

Cancer’s Trojan Horse

“There is not a tumor on God’s green Earth that cannot be licked with a little baking soda and maple syrup.” —Jim Kelmun

Kenneth Brown, CEO
September-October 2018 • Vol 3, No 100

LLong about February of 2018, I had a large lump in my chest so I went over to the VA hospital in Helena for a biopsy. The surgeon said he would let me know. I then did the maple syrup and baking soda routine described here. After about two weeks, he called and said he wanted to do another biopsy. I told him there’s no need because the lump is gone now. After two more of my friends died of cancer,
I made copies of this newsletter and started asking around, “Do you know anyone who’s got cancer?” The answer was almost always yes, so I’ve been handing out this information since then.

I mentioned it to a fellow named Jay who had stage-4 colon cancer. He went out and got the 100%-pure maple syrup and the aluminum-free baking soda. After about three weeks on it, he went back to the doctor who said, “I don’t know what you’re doing, but keep doing it, because your numbers are way down.” A friend named Terry also had colon cancer. After a while, I was meeting a mutual friend for coffee, who told me, “Terry wants you to know he’s doing fine and says, ‘Thank you, thank you!’”

What’s Your Face Telling You?

A Picture Paints 1,000 Words

Marlenea La Shomb, ND
September-October 2018 • Vol 3, No 100

In life I have found keeping it simple and finding what works best for you are most beneficial when working to move forward through challenging situations, whether mental, emotional, or physical, since they are all tied together with one affecting the other.

Over the years, I have met some people with a very strong sense of smell and taste, disliking pure essential oils. For that very reason, they can also have a dislike for stronger tasting foods, like raw garlic, onions, lemon, ginger, cayenne or turmeric, herbs and herbal remedies (tinctures), teas and have never gotten used to the benefits due to the taste. Adding to that, some cannot swallow tablets or capsules, making me wonder, what can I recommend to these people that they will actually take?

Herbs: The Root of Medicine

They Work Much Better in Their Whole State!

Crystal Maceira, Master Herbalist
July–August 2018 • Vol 3, No 99

I have been a Master Herbalist for over 35 years and have seen much good in herbs. I personally have benefited from their use, which has kept me from getting sick, by using the Formula KVA, for instance, because its main herb is Garlic. (I even hugged friends of mine who had the West Nile Virus!) I have healed sprains, cuts, big open wounds (on my previous husband) and so much more.

I have seen people healed of many diseases using herbs, along with dietary changes.
I personally make many herbal formulas and single herb tinctures, several of which I use. The favorite ones I am taking now are Turmeric and Boswellia for arthritis. They both help inflammation in my joints. I also use a couple of salves (Hot Tamale and Comfrey) on the clients I massage and personally on an old injury.

Herbal Detoxification

The Body’s Power to Heal Itself

Elaine Rylin
July–August 2018 • Vol 3, No 99

Excerpts from The Essiac Report: Canada’s Remarkable Unknown Cancer Remedy:
“Chemotherapy and radiation are, for the most part, indiscriminate killers. Skeptics conclude that, in most cases, these “therapies” are no better and sometimes much worse than the actual disease.

An alternative is the Native-American formula for Essiac Tea that consists of 4 or 5 herbs (see illustrations below). It’s a simple, inexpensive, highly effective and natural approach that has no side effects and is available to everyone. For over a century, detoxification programs using this tea have restored health to thousands of cancer victims.

EFT—Relief Is Just a Few Taps Away!

Emotional Freedom Techniques

CJ Puotinen
July–August 2018 • Vol 3, No 99

Can tapping on acupuncture points really change a person’s life? Twenty years ago, when few Americans had heard of energy psychology and its methods for redirecting the body’s energy, those claims raised skeptical eyebrows.

Then EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) burst on the scene and in record time, people around the world reported amazing results in their efforts to lose weight, stop smoking, improve in any sport, get along better with others, alleviate stress, improve vision, eliminate pain, reduce allergic reactions, overcome anxiety, recover from illness, have more energy, make more money, and even relax and enjoy public speaking, America’s number-one phobia.

Understanding Bowenwork

Extremely Gentle, It Addresses the Whole Body

Crystal Maceira, LMT, MH
May-June 2018 • Vol 3, No 98

The Bowen Technique is a gentle form of natural healing. In order to appreciate its subtlety and depth, the therapy really needs to be experienced. It’s a system of moves along muscle and connective tissue that enhances the body’s innate ability to heal, creating balance and resetting the nervous system out of “stress mode.” After the first session, people often wonder how such gentle moves can have so powerful an effect—not only on their posture and structural problems, e.g., bad back, frozen shoulder, etc., but also on their general well-being.

The gentle touch used in a Bowen session will vary according to the client’s sensitivity. The therapist uses her fingers or thumbs to move over muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia and joints, and occasionally over nerves, in order to elicit a healing response in the body.
