Hey men! If you learned you were diabetic, would you keep the information to yourself and not seek help or would you choose to find answers, modify your diet and move on with your life in a healthier way? We hope you’d choose the latter. What if you had a toothache that bothered you day in and day out… would you keep that to yourself or get some relief by visiting your dentist? Again, we’re hoping you’d seek help. There is an unfortunate and culturally encouraged stigma for men surrounding health and wellness and has impacted the comfort men feel in seeking advice or treatment for a number of complaints. While it’s perfectly acceptable for women to discuss hormonal imbalances and the changes of the body associated with menopause, most men do not feel comfortable exploring the topic of male menopause, andropause. We’ve got information to get you on the right track for assessing andropause and reducing the symptoms but it’s up to you to act! [Read more →]

Experiencing the symptoms of estrogen deficiency and want a natural way to find balance? We’ve got you covered. Menopause is often referred to as “the big change” and that’s for a BIG reason. Hot flashes, night sweats, depression, insomnia, decreased libido and fatigue are only a sampling of the common complaints from women who are entering menopause. These symptoms are greatly due to the fact that there is a hormonal imbalance in the body, namely estrogen. Menopausal difficulties are a reality that women have been aware of for centuries! In ancient China, menopausal women would drink the urine of pregnant women to treat their symptoms as the concentration of estrogen in the urine was so high. Thank goodness we have moved on from this ancient practice and now know there are easier (and perhaps more appetizing) ways to treat hormonal imbalances. [Read more →]

We’ve all experienced those glorious moments of putting your face to the sun to absorb its rays of goodness and your whole body says “ahhh”. You relax and feel a sense of wellbeing, but that’s not just because of the warmth and feelings of being nurtured, it’s also because it activates our body’s production of Vitamin D, something it can’t do without sunlight. Pretty amazing right? This vitamin’s effect on the body is impressive and there is a direct correlation between depression and Vitamin D deficiency. If you or someone you love struggles with depression, take a closer look at supplementing with Vitamin D and some of these other natural options. [Read more →]

Clinical Observations on the Nutritional Efficacy of CELLFOOD Utilizing Live Blood Analysis and Dry Blood Analysis Microscopic Evaluation Procedures
By Michel Coyle
Director of Research and Education
NuLife Sciences 9/2002
Blood: The Perfect Mirror of Health
Based on the observed efficacy of CELLFOOD in clinical application at NuLife Sciences over a fifteen (15) year period, the following compilation of research results utilizing darkfield and brightfield microscopy has been compiled.
The purpose of this talk is to elucidate the efficacy of using CELLFOOD as a terrain
balancer, oxygenator and hydrogen ion donor. The effects of terrain therapy— especially the balancing effect of re-mineralization on the hormonal, enzymatic, digestive, structural and eliminative systems of the overall physiology— have been verified over and over again in the darkfield and brightfield blood studies conducted at NuLife Sciences. I propose this question: Since minerals are just colloidal metals, and those metals are the all-important ‘electrical wiring’—or physiological communication— of the entire body, how can the human body function optimally if the minerals are deficient? It is like trying to power a 300 watt halogen light with a micro-thin wire that also has numerous breaks in it! In other words, it is not a viable proposition. [Read more →]

If you did a search in Google for “biggest risk factors for cardiovascular disease” you will find a variety of answers including: cigarette and tobacco smoke, high blood cholesterol, high blood pressure, physical inactivity, obesity and diabetes.
This list of six independent risk factors that can be modified or controlled are considered to be the major causes of cardiovascular disease. They have been the accepted reasons for the last few decades but leave out one major factor that has only recently been given mainstream attention: elevated triglycerides. Why has there been such a delay in getting the word out that elevated triglycerides are far more common in heart disease than high cholesterol and what can be done to improve your own health? Take a look. [Read more →]

“Brain and heart disorders resulting from long-chain omega-3 EPA and DHA deficiency are the biggest challenge to the future of humanity”
-Global Summit on Nutrition Health and Human Behaviour
The quote above indicates the severe consequences a deficiency in omega-3 EPA and DHA will present to the world — both in the short and long term future. EPA and DHA are the two most critical omega-3 fats required for neurological development and performance, cardiovascular function, and cellular communication. Just like our bodies starve without vitamin C and develop scurvy, much of the developed world is starving without omega-3s. This poses a serious threat to our health and the generations that will follow. [Read more →]
Each year at Expo West in Anaheim, CA, Hanna’s Herb Shop checks out what’s new and coming up in the world of natural products and holistic healing, and we love to learn new ways we can bring better health to you. While we are learning about new products, our sister company Kroeger Herb will be sharing their two newest Complete Concentrates with the world, Ashwagandha & Holy Basil.
It’s no secret that everyone at Kroeger and Hanna’s Herb Shop loves adaptogenic herbs and the amazing positive impact they have on our bodies and with the addition of these two adaptogenic powerhouses, there’s even more to be excited about.
Ashwagandha is said to have the power of 10 horses because of the benefits it provides to the body as it recovers from illness, stress, or chronic symptoms. This adaptogen has been celebrated in ancient medicine and continues to be praised today, especially for how it eases symptoms of stress and anxiety, as well as pain. Like other adaptogens, Ashwagandha provides a boost to the immune system and benefits brain function, sleep patterns, and energy levels.
Holy Basil is the most praised of all Ayurvedic herbs and is the most beneficial of all adaptogenic herbs for brain and mood disorders. From depression and stress to headaches or complaints of how to deal with emotional difficulties, Holy Basil relaxes the mind and benefits the brain. Aside from these positive impacts on the body, Holy Basil also reduces inflammation, eases skin issues (eczema, psoriasis, rashes), and can help to prevent premature aging by reversing cell and tissue damage while sweeping free radicals from the system due to its high antioxidant levels.
This is only a glimpse at the benefits of Ashwagandha and Holy Basil and their adaptogenic benefits. If you’d like to learn more about how these herbs can boost your mood, immune system, improve brain function, and so much more, check out these blog posts:

Constipation is one of those topics that doesn’t come up too often during conversations with family or friends since it’s not the most comfortable subject to discuss. While it may not be a popular topic, constipation has an impact on many of us (affecting women and the elderly more commonly than any other group) but is a complaint that can be eased or avoided with some natural help and attention to our diets. Not sure if the symptoms you’re experiencing are constipation? Generally speaking you’re constipated if: bowel movements (BM) become difficult or are not frequent (one or less times a day, extreme constipation is two or fewer times per week), you strain during a BM, or you do not completely evacuate your system when having a BM. If any of these symptoms sound like something you are experiencing or if you’re looking to avoid constipation altogether, follow these 5 Steps to Avoid and Alleviate Constipation. [Read more →]
