Velvet Antler - new hope for Arthritis sufferers

Velvet Antler could be the most significant breakthrough for arthritis sufferers in the world today.
For more than 2000 years, a remarkable natural remedy called velvet antler has been prized by healers in various cultures around the world.
In China, Korea, Japan and Russia, velvet antler has reportedly been used to prevent, heal and relieve ailments and injuries.  
Today, a vast body of research conducted in those countries is now revealing an impressive array of reported abilities of velvet antler to reduce inflammation, influence body metabolism, support immune function, protect damaged tissues and affect blood, liver and kidney function and more.
 In fact, laboratory analyses now show that velvet antler contains an amazingly comprehensive nutritional profile including collagen, amino acids, essential fatty acids, minerals, trace minerals, and other functional proteins, all vital components for human metabolic function.

Velvet antler is available in capsules for both joint health and sports recovery

Arthritis information from Dr. Betty Kaman

Millions of Americans are physically derailed by arthritis, America's No 1 crippling disease. According to the Arthritis National Research Foundation, arthritis:
  • is progressive
  • erodes the physical endurance and pain tolerance of its sufferers
  • claims a new victim every thirty-three seconds
Imagine! Every thirty-three seconds!
Even more tragic, juvenile arthritis affects an estimated 285,000 children in the United States. For many, it begins when they are very young and follows them like a bad dream into adulthood.
In 2020, an estimated 18.2 percent of the population will suffer from arthritis, up 15 percent since 1995, as reported in Arthritis and Rheumatism. And if you thinkl arthritis is a disease of the elderly, you are mistaken. More than half of arthritis patients are under 65. Like so many other degenerative diseases of our time, the affliction is taking hold at earlier and earlier ages.

Benefits of Velvet Antler

Dr. Betty Kamen Addresses Arthritis and Velvet Antler
When I lecture and list the benefits of velvet, two areas elicit great enthusiam from my audiences. The first is its anti-aging properties. The second is arthritis relief, perhaps each for the very same reason:
"Other evils can mend, but age and arthritis get worse every day."
In 1999, the chondrotin sulfate and collagen type II in velvet antler were scientifically substaniated by research and clinical studies, in compliance with FDA regulations "to support healthy joint structure and function."
This means that velvet antler has received the green light to be marketed as a dietary supplement for the nutritional support of the very body parts that malfunction in the presence of arthritis: your joints.
Velvet Antler tablets are made in New Zealand and shipped world-wide.

How scabies are caught

Scabies is a very contagious skin disease caused by infestation with a type of microscopic mite called Sarcoptes scabiei var. hominis. The parasite mites responsible for causing scabies can be easily contracted by entering in contact with infested persons. Scabies can also be acquired indirectly, by entering in contact with contaminated objects. Although scabies mites can live for a few days without a human host, recent studies have revealed that scabies is rarely acquired indirectly.
Once they find a human host, scabies mites quickly populate the skin, hiding in less exposed regions of the body. Female mites usually lay their eggs under the fingernails, in the skin folds between the toes or fingers, in the pubic region, in the areas of the buttocks or the upper back, in armpits and the region of the elbows. The first symptoms generated by scabies are skin inflammation, itch and rash. In later stages of the mite infestation, people can also develop skin ulcerations, lesions, blisters, pustules, crust and painful nodules. Most of the symptoms caused by scabies occur due to allergic reactions to the mites - healthskep.com
Treatment can be by several means, however scabies have become increasingly resistant to chemical treatments "Reported Sarcoptes scabiei (scabies) treatment failures with lindane, crotamiton, and benzyl benzoate, as well as likely emerging resistance to 5% permethrin and oral ivermectin, are of concern and advocate for the identification and development of novel acaricidal drugs"

A highly successful and natural scabies treatment is with cream, oil and soap containing Manuka and tea tree oils. The scabies mites are yet to develop any recorded resistance to these natural essential oils and they also have no known side effects.

Exposure to the sun is good for you

The rehabilitation of the benefits of sunshine continues apace. Ten years ago, there was no prolonged spell of good weather without Cassandra-like warnings about the hazards of ultraviolet radiation, responsible seemingly for an “epidemic” rise in skin cancer. Now, we learn, as reported in this paper last week, that three hours’ sun exposure a day reputedly slashes the risk of breast cancer by almost half – due, it is claimed, to stimulation of the production of vitamin D by the skin.
It is salutary to recall how, in the Twenties, the enormous enthusiasm for the health-giving properties of the sun led to the formation of The Sunlight League, dedicated to “teaching the nation that sunlight is nature’s natural disinfectant, a stimulant to the body and tonic to the mind”.
These were no idle claims, with Neils Finsen, a Danish physician, receiving the Nobel Prize for demonstrating the curative effect of sunlight on tuberculosis of the skin. It is also beneficial in treating eczema, psoriasis and rickets. - James Lefanu, telegraph.co.uk/health
So the answer is to get some sun, in moderation.
Sun will increase your vitamin D intake, and help to reduce the effects of eczema, psoriasis and rickets.
For more help the application of a natural product will help too. Manuka honey has been shown to make a significant contribution to relieving eczema and psoriasis.

We welcome your comments on this article.

Natural Remedy for Seborrheic dermatitis

Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin condition that causes flaky, dry, white to yellowish scales to form on oily areas esp. under the nose or anywhere on face. People with seborrheic dermatitis produce too much sebum (the natural skin oil). It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. - medhelp.org/health
A natural remedy that has been highly successful contains Manuka UMF honey in a cream formulation.

Here is what one of our customers said :
The doctor diagnosed my red and oozing nose as an infection and gave me a prescription for an antibiotic, and told me it should be gone in a week. I decided to use your Manuka UMF Honey Cream instead, as I don't like to use antibiotics, and it has cleared up beautifully within a week. I use the cream for any cuts and itchy bits of skin I sometimes get and am amazed at how well it works and how far a small dab goes. A truly excellent product. - Julie de Burgh

Candida home remedies

The treatment of fungal infections Vaginal yeast infections and infections of the vulva are usually treated with antifungal medications that can be applied in or around the vagina or orally by mouth. The classic prescription of these infections include butoconazole, also known as Femstat 3, clotrimazole, also known as Lotrimin, Miconazole, also known as Monistat, and terconazole, also known as Terazol 3. The best way to manage these compounds is through the direct application of a pessary or cream to the affected area. Oral medications tend to have rather a lot of side effects. Over-the-counter treatments are a common choice that many women used to treat vaginal infections. Canesten cream is perhaps the best known fungal infection of the genital area.
Natural remedies for candidiasis: Candidiasis can be cured with a series of remedies, some of which are:
1. You can use aromatherapy to cure an infection caused by Candida. You can use tea tree essential oil or cinnamon bark to cure candidiasis. These oils usually work in the cell membrane of the infectious yeast cells and expose the cell contents to the harsh environmental conditions, making it difficult for organisms to survive.
2. You can use peppermint oil as an infusion to cure an infection caused by Candida.
3. You can also apply rosemary oil in the affected areas because of their anti-fungal properties.
4. Olive leaves have antimicrobial properties. Therefore, an extract of olive leaves can be applied in parts of the body affected by candida.
5. You can also apply Aloe Vera gel in the affected areas to relieve the symptoms of candidiasis.
6. You should eat raw garlic every day or use it in culinary preparations such as garlic has anti-fungal action. You can also apply the freshly extracted juice of garlic in the affected areas to treat candida infection. - 212articles.com
All of these natural treatments have their advocates, however possibly the best and most effective natural Candida remedy is the essential oil, cream and soap containing the New Zealand Manuka plant extracts.
This essential oil has been shown in scientific studies to be more effective and at lower concentrations than tea tree oil, Manuka oil also causes less sensitization to mucous membranes than tea tree oil.

Velvet antler arthritis treatment success


Velvet Antler contains the missing link to longevity, something just not present in all the promising nutrition programs I have ever worked with. Its growth factors are a significant part of what makes it special. Growth factors may be the only substances that can retard and even reverse aging. – Michael Rosenbaum MD - from the book “The Remarkable Healing Power of Velvet Antler” by Betty Kamen PhD
This book is essential reading for arthritis sufferers and available from Amazon: https://www.manukanatural.com/admin/index.php?ToDo=editProduct&productId=85 

How to treat persistent Athletes foot infection

I work on a construction site, so my feet are in steel-toed leather construction boots for about ten hours a day, five days a week. After a hard day's work, when I come home, my feet are hot, wet, sweaty, and itchy. I am pretty sure I have athlete's foot.
I have tried the usual creams they sell in the pharmacies for athlete's foot: Canesten, Tinactin, Micatin, etc. I hate squeezing those small tubes (like toothpaste tubes) and rubbing the cream over parts of my foot.
So far, these creams have not been a permanent solution.
And how do you know you've covered all the necessary area of your foot, so that the bacteria doesn't come back and re-infect your foot with the athlete's foot bacteria, or whatever it is?
So now I am wondering, are there any other treatments for athlete's foot? I think I'd like a solution I could just soak my whole foot in every evening. Is something like that available? That way, I think I'd cover my whole foot by soaking them in a bucket or something. And it would be a lot more comfortable than smearing cream on myself.
Firstly, athletes foot is a fungus, not a bacteria, however as the fungus infects the area, skin dead skin tissue will be broken down by bacteria and this is what causes the characteristic smell.

A simple and effective natural solution is essential oil, cream and soap containing NZ Manuka oil. These products have been proven in trials and have never failed to work on Athletes foot infections

Bee Sting beauty cream


How bee venom works to reduce your wrinkles and helps to make your skin look younger.

Honey bee venom is used cosmetically to 'fool' the skin into thinking it has been lightly stung with the toxin melittin, according to beautician Deborah Mitchell.

This causes the body to direct blood towards the area and stimulates the production of the naturally-occurring chemicals collagen and elastin 

Collagen strengthens body tissue while elastin is the protein that helps the skin to remain taut and bounce back into shape after being pressed or pinched. The venom also has the effect of relaxing the muscles, it is claimed. 

A toxin extracted from the venom, Apamin, has also been credited with alleviating conditions such as muscular dystrophy, depression and dementia.
Apamin speeds up brain activity by allowing potassium to flow out of the nerves more quickly, a study by the University of Bristol and the University of Liege in Belgium found earlier this month.
Our bee sting cream or bee venom mask will be available here soon and we are already taking orders for the first shipment

Keeping eczema prone skin moist

When dealing with eczema it is important to work moisturizing into your daily routine. You will need to moisturize your skin at least twice a day. Dry skin is naturally itchy and will cause your eczema to become irritated. Before using moisturizer check the ingredients and make sure there are no added chemicals or alcohol. Both of these will cause further irritation. Remember to stay hydrated as well. Try to drink close to eight glasses of water a day. This will keep your skin healthy and better prepared to fight off your eczema.
The rising up of eczema problem like itching can be reduced to a greater extent by altering the regular diet like including more fruits and vegetables and avoiding oil foods and fatty oils. Following a perfectly balanced diet with more salads and vegetables can bring in more water restoration in the skin making it soft and supple.- Articlesbase
Keeping your skin moisturized is one of the great benefits of Manuka honey in the Manuka honey cream Manuka honey is hygroscopic which means that it attracts moisture, keeping the skin soft and moist.
In addition Manuka honey has proven anti-microbial properties which will control any bacteria that could be present due to scratching the affected areas.

Avoid the sun when taking certain medications

Avoid the sun when taking certain medications. Some medications like antibiotics, water pills, acne creams or heart medication can increase your sensitivity to the sun. Ask your pharmacist if any of the medications you are taking can increase your risk to the harmful effects of UV rays.
Children are at higher risk for sunburns because they are less likely to protect themselves. Make sure your children apply sunblock before they head outside to play. If your child is less than 6 months old, use hats, sunglasses and shade to protect them. Sunblocks with "baby formulas" can be used on small areas of a baby's skin, such as the face and hands.

Scabies treatment

I was recently diagnosed with scabies. I have done two treatments of 5% Permethrin cream, 1 week between the two treatments. It took doctors 8 weeks before they finally determined I had scabies. As you can imagine, I was covered with spots by this time. I have spots EVERYWHERE on my body. The itching was so out of control that I scratched the spots but now I am left with a lot of scabed over red spots. I am trying to find something, anything that will heal the scabs and just make them go away faster. I have read that Bio-oil helps but I've been using it and it doesn't seem to be helping. Does anyone know of anything I can use to help speed up the process of healing these spots/scabs? I haven't left my house in weeks because of this and I'm becoming very depressed. I don't want to go near anyone because of the embarrisment of how I look. Please help.- Yahoo Answers
 We have a natural Scabies Treatment Pack which has been totally successful for everyone who has ordered it. Not only does this treatment eliminate the scabies mites and their eggs, it also stops bacteria from infecting the scratched areas, AND it will calm the itch which initiates the scratching.
Scabies treatment failures with Permethrin are common because scabies mites have now developed resistant strains to several chemical drugs including malathion and lindane.
We have had nothing but praise for the manuka and tea tree products in this pack.
