I'm going to talk today about a few of the wonderful products available through the Whole Approach website. It's easy to get stuck in our 'same old' product choices but sometimes, keeping ourselves open to new possibilities can lead to wonderful improvements in our protocol's effectiveness.
There are certain core products, including the Whole Approach core products that many of us will maintain use of. However, 'switching up' complementary products to work on varying health goals is a good idea for an effective holistic health program. Linda and I spend a lot of time sourcing the highest quality choices for needs that our members express. I thought I'd post about some of my favourites below to bring your attention to them. Many people have no idea the full range of products available in the online store here!
The Smooth Operator product that we sourced for Leaky Gut Syndrome (LGS) is a tremendous intestinal anti-inflammatory product. I don't have LGS but I do have a few food allergies. I'm absolutely amazed at what I've discovered with this product. It's calledSmooth Operator. I combined it for a while with Absorb-Aid at each meal and my ability to tolerate foods that normally I cannot, increased by about 5 fold.
Though I don't recommend using it in order to ignore food allergies and 'eat them anyway', I do see how incredible it's anti-inflammatory effect is. It's an excellent way to reduce intestinal inflammation and future food allergies while healing current ones. I highly recommend it to anyone with food allergies!
The Querceten & Bromelain. product has been awesome for me as well! I took it during a fast in order to strengthen my bodies cleansing and anti-inflammatory activity. I had a few skin blemishes at the start of the fast and within one day of taking the Q&B, the pimples almost completely disappeared! Also, I've had an injury that was re-inflammed when I was using some dairy products (inflammatory to me) and within two days, I felt a significant relief. I LOVE this product. I also find that it increase energy. It is known to reduce platelet aggregation and this action can lead to improvements in many physiological functions, not the least of which is oxygen delivery to cells (which leads to more energy.) There are many more positive benefits as well. I don't recommend taking a full daily dosage of Smooth Operator at the same time as a full daily dosage of Q&B though since a full daily dose of each would involve a lot of quercetin. I think that more than six total daily of either of these products or a combination of them, would be too much.
The Moonmaid Rose Cream is wonderful. I enjoy it's lightly fragrant (natural rose scent) with it's smooth, skin balancing, moisturizing power. It's lovely and it's Linda's favourite.
And the MoonMaid Botanicals Dandelion Blossom Cream is my favourite cream! It's a gorgeous smell and an oil base that is absorbed within a few minutes and moisturizing effect that lasts hours. My facial skin dryness and wrinkles have been dramatically reduced. I love this product and I know men that love it as well!
The vitamin D drops are a product that I introduced to my personal protocol after reading studies about it's protective effect and it's ability to lessen seasonal symptoms from low light winters. It actually functions a lot like a hormone. I felt an increase in mental and physical energy within one dose and was sold. I kept it up at full dose (4000 to 5000 iu) until the sun got higher in the sky and since the spring have been using it at 2000 iu a day. I miss it when I don't take it and really feel the difference.
Hepafem is a gentle but very effective liver product from one of our favourite suppliers, Vitanica. This blend is fantastic, either for a liver cleanse or to help ease hormonal issues related to PMS or peri-menopause. It's also protective and cleansing for those of you who might be exposed to toxins that the liver needs to process. It's the nicest liver formula I've tried in a long time. I still love the SFHF Hepato, especially since it can be used by the drop and thus increased slowly but I appreciate the alternate formula and the capsule form of Hepafem as well. I think either or both can have a place in a healthy, holistic self care program.
Colon Motility capsules provide absolutely beautiful, gentle relief from slow elimination and it's a formula I appreciate very much and feel comfortable recommending. It can be used for up to a month and is great for those who are adjusting to increased fibre intake and also for those who experience constipation as a die off symptom.
Deep Immune Capsules might just be at the top of my favourites list. Their support is palpable and if I could keep up with it, I'd use them regularly all year round. I end up trialing other products and forget about these but when I'm off them, I really notice an increase in my susceptibility to viruses.
Recently, when I injured my knee tripping over my young cat, I put Restoraction Cream to the test. I found it wonderful for quick pain relief. It works a lot like Traumese for sprains and strains and varicose veins and maybe even better.
The Zinc Chamomile cream is VERY NICE. This is the only zinc cream I've ever used that has just the right amount of since so it does not cake up or form a very thick coating on the skin. It smells great and feels even better! Perfect for very sensitive areas! I do have a few other favourites but I'll save those to talk about in my next products post. I encourage you read about the above products if they sound like they might be helpful to you.
Take good care,
