Back to School with True Botanica: Teacher Must-Haves

Part 3: Teacher Must-Haves

This year, we are excited to kickoff a multi-part Back to School Blog Series! In case you missed our previous posts, check out our Student Survival Guide and Parent Must-Haves

We know how important it is for teachers to stay healthy during the busy school year. Here are a few of our suggestions of Back to School natural Products for teachers to keep you healthy and present this year!

Lung Root:
A full spectrum, completely non-alcoholic product containing high quality pelargonium root. The root of Pelargonium sidoides has been known in traditional medicine, and confirmed by modern research, to be a significant support for the immune system and support the health of the lung and upper respiratory tract. Available in Lemon and Menthol.

Throat Defense:
Contains mouth specific probiotics to support the natural respiratory barrier against airborne microbes. The probiotics, BLIS K12, have a dual function: they discharge bacteria-fighting proteins AND replenish the desirable normal cells in the lining of the mouth, crowding out and making it more difficult for the “outside” invaders to establish themselves. Throat Defense comes in two flavors: Berry and Menthol

Prunus Spinosa 6X
This refreshing restoring tonic provides relief, especially from exhaustion. As with all of our OTC Homeopathic/Anthroposophic products, the Kolisko Validation test has been used to show how the final product is significantly greater than a water control!

Strophanthus Kombe 6X
This product helps provide relief against stress, especially exam anxiety (important not just for students, but for teachers too!)

Hawthorn Plus
This product contains organic Hawthorn berry plus the salts of the hawthorn plant. Hawthorn helps keep the heart strong and healthy and supports a normal blood pressure. It also lessens fatigue by invigorating the cardiovascular system.

Multivitamins Plus:
Like many multivitamins it delivers over 100% of the recommended daily dietary needs for most vitamins and basic mineral – but what makes ours stand out is we also include rhythmically prepared herbs, trace minerals and spices that enhance the absorption and utilization of all nutrients. Plus, we include the energizing herb Guarana.

Vital Mind AM
We know the importance of teachers needing to be on their toes, so stay sharp throughout the year, this ginseng containing formula can help you do just that! Ginseng is known for improving functions like: vitality, concentration, attention accuracy, arithmetic ability, working memory speed and more.

Coffee/Pero Products
The newest addition to the True Botanica product line, we are excited to now offer Fresh Roasted Coffee and Decaf Coffee and Regular and Extra Dark Roast Pero! If coffee/pero is already a part of your morning routine, consider purchasing ours, as the profits directly support anthroposophic medical research!

Hand & Body Cream
This hypoallergenic, natural cream provides a deep lasting most moisturizing and renewing effect that absorbs quickly and won’t leave behind a greasy residue.

Stomach Aid’s Dual Function Support

Dual Function

The combination of calcium carbonate and enzymes in our Stomach Aid fulfills a dual function by:

  • Alleviating the occasional heartburn – by neutralizing stomach acid;
  • Continuing to support the digestive processes – through enzymes that have been selected to function at this more comfortable pH level.

Stomach acid is an essential requirement for the digestion and absorption of many nutrients. In preparations where only an antacid is used, the stomach digestion is incomplete (since most stomach enzymes do not work well in a neutral environment) and undigested food particles may cause problems such as: bloating, gas and discomfort in the intestinal tract and even disturbances in the immune system if undigested food particles reach the blood.

This is why it is advantageous for a formula to combine an antacid function with digestive enzymes functions that even in a changed environment.

Be Kind to Your Eyes

Be Kind to Your Eyes with this Ideal Eye Health Regimen

Most of us spend considerably more time in front of a digital screen than we should – or would want to. This can put a severe strain on the ability of the eye to accommodate.

By the time adults reach maturity, 1 in 6 people will have some significant visual problems.

Eye Refresh

  • Lessens eye fatigue;
  • Improves night vision.

Best taken together with….

No single formulation can include absolutely all ingredients that have been shown to be beneficial to the eye health. For an ideal eye health regimen the following would be a desirable daily combination:

2.  Chrysolith Pentas ™ – a potentized peridot gemstone  for  eye health

3.  Multivitamins Plus ™

Ginger for Stomach and Digestive Support

Ginger Plus™

The ginger root is not only an important kitchen spice but also a very important health remedy.

You may have heard to try ginger for digestion support, but it is also highly helpful in:Ginger Plus

  • Improving the digestive and healthy abdominal comfort;
  • Supports a normal, comfortable menstrual cycle;
  • Helpful in maintaining a calm stomach feeling with travel and other life situations;
  • Keeping the joints flexible;
  • Maintaining a healthy respiratory tract;
  • Supporting a heightened sense of energy and wellbeing.

New for Detoxifying – Broccoli Plus

Broccoli Plus™ supports Liver Detox

Science has long ago confirmed R. Steiner’s insight that regulation of sulfur metabolism is of immense importance for the general health.

Broccoli Plus

Broccolis, through their sulfur containing so called sulforaphanes, do just that. Specifically, they reduce the presence of carcinogens like cigarette smoke, alcohol, synthetic and naturally occurring (dietary) carcinogens, radiation, drugs, infections agents and more.

Studies have shown that a diet including very high levels of yellow and green vegetables especially of the cruciferous family are highly significant to enhance health. Since getting a daily supply of the crucial vegetables is not always possible, or if more than a minimal amount is desired, having a daily supplement of the active detoxifying broccoli substances is clearly very important.

Taking this supplement also has significant emotional and mental benefits. Just as Cruciferous plants contribute on a physiological level to remove unwanted toxins, on a mental level they help to overcome a feeling of stagnation, the experience of not being able to resolve “road blocks.”
