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

Our new Eye Refresh™ is a unique combination of highest quality bilberry, lutein, zeaxanthin, gingko, alpha lipoic acid and antioxidant minerals and vitamins, which:

  • Supports the tired and over-used eye function
  • Supports a healthy eye accommodation;
  • Supports a healthy retinal and macula function;
  • 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:

1.  Algae Plus™ – contains astaxanthin – a carotenoid vital for eye health;

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.

 Our new formula has more than just high amounts of ginger rhizome per serving, it also contains the salts and ashes of the ginger root. This gives the formula a full spectrum quality and enhances its positive effect on mental and physical well- being.

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.”

Brain Fog – A New Anthroposophic Way to Help

Brain Fog – A New Anthroposophic Way to Help!

We all know the feeling: the evening comes, we are tired and we have difficulty concentrating; or after the all too big lunch (or any meal) and we can barely keep the head up- let alone have the crisp mind for mental activity.

Even worse this condition can be nearly permanent in some people!

To help with this “state of mind” we need to understand some basic physiology from an anthroposophic point of view first. These insights were given by Rudolf Steiner in a lecture on 3.22.1923.

During eating, the digestive process gets activated and the etheric, life forces in the intestines become stronger. Additionally, an etheric image is generated by the plant product that has just been consumed. (It is similar with eating animal foods.) However, whatever excess activity has been generated in the metabolism is usually neutralized within a day or so.

Very importantly, however, while this is going on in the lower organism a “negative” is also created automatically in the upper organism, in the brain.

That is the rule for regular edible plants. A poisonous plant though has an additional element in this configuration. The poison is of an “astral”, soul like nature, normally seen only in animals but not “appropriate” in herbs and thus of more significant consequence. When we consume such a plant a much stronger form results in the intestine and the form does not get cleared so rapidly. It lingers much longer. The same goes for the “negative” created in the brain. It remains there much longer also. It also adds an additional “astrality”, soul quality, and yes, awakeness in the mind.

If this process is repeated over and over, an overcoming of the “foggy” mind, an overcoming of the mere “vegging”, numb, out of focus feeling, is achieved.

The most characteristic plant that is helpful in this respect is Hyoscyamus niger- black henbane.

Hyoscyamus 6x taken several times a day, throughout a longer period of time is a great remedy in this respect. (The same in a slightly different way can be accomplished with Belladonna.)
