Pharmaceutical companies are monopolizing the health and wellness industry.
In 2014 the United States Patent Office issued a statement to all patent examiners to “REJECT ANY PATENT CLAIM TO A PURIFIED NATURAL PRODUCT”

This is absolutely atrocious, and is a blatant attack on scientists who are looking to nature to heal. Before the 2014 ruling thousands of patents have helped to save millions of lives.

For example:

Patent #: 141,072 (1883, Louis Pasteur) – the identification of a yeast extract for the killing of germs.

Patent #: 644,077 (1898, Felix Hoffman) – for purified acetyl salicylic acid aka aspirin

Patent #: 730,176 (1904, Jokichi Takamine) – To purify adrenaline

How many of you would like to see more natural ways to assist with your health?

Ephedra nevadensis: What is it, and is it okay to consume?

FACTS & FINDINGS WITH DR. PLANT: EPHEDRA NEVADENSIS 

Dr. Plant helps us better understand Ephedra nevadensis: What is it, and is it okay to consume?

When we hear Ephedra we think back to about 15 years ago when the media and government spoke about its dangers. I want to explain a little bit about Ephedra nevadensis and how this is completely different than the Ephedra that was banned ~15 years ago.

When news agencies spoke about Ephedra 15 years ago, they were referring to a compound called “Ephedra Alkaloids” (see picture). That compound is found in a botanical called Ma Huang. Thus the compound Ephedra was mentioned because it was the active ingredient, but the actual name of the botanical it is found in is called Ma Huang.

Ephedra nevadensis on the other hand is a botanical name, and isn’t referring to the compounds. In fact, numerous studies have shown that Ephedra nevadensis does not contain any Ephedra Alkaloids, and is therefore both safe and legal to sell. It just happens to have the unfortunate circumstance of having a name similar to that which was found to be a buzz word 15 years ago. It is like the unfortunate circumstance of people who have the name Katrina or Andrew, and then a hurricane is given the same name.

In short, Ephedra nevadensis is safe and legal to consume. It in no way contains Ephedra alkaloids, the compound found in the botanical Ma Huang.

A little highlight on the botanical: It grows in the deserts of the western U.S., and has been consumed for hundreds/thousands of years to help remove the buildup of mucus in our airways. Thus by supplementing with Ephedra nevadensis individuals may often feel an increase of energy because they are more effectively able to get the oxygen their body needs by clearing the congestion/pollution that has built up in their airway, which limits oxygen intake. You can find Ephedra nevadensis in products like Zija’s XM+ Energy Mix and XM3 Energy Drink.

Be Prepared When You Travel

AMÉO LIVING SERIES: ESSENTIAL OILS FOR TRAVELING

The following is one in a series of practical Améo Essential Oil uses from healthy lifestyle expert Karen A. Jensen

Time to hit the road! Just remember that as you travel a few things can make your trip memorable in several ways. Your wellbeing might be enhanced with the use of items such as Ameo Aroma Necklace, Aerify Diffuser, Beadlets, even a cotton hanky onto which one can place oils such as Gest Calm – a terrific aid for travel tummies. Peppermint and Life Unlimited can help you keep up with vacation schedules.  Think about keeping Pure Tranquility, in your travel bags to maintain that mellow and laid-back attitude. Soothing Air can make sure the dry airplane atmosphere remains a non-factor as you travel.

Recently my husband and I traveled to India. It was an amazing trip and in order to make sure we were able to enjoy every moment, oils such as Proshield were diffused, placed on face cloths and taken internally. Ameo Hand Purifier is easy to carry and actually makes hands feel softer and more pleasant than other such products.

If your trip includes roller coasters you might consider the Cooling Mint beadlets, just place one between lip and gum then board the ride certain that your stomach stays where it belongs. The use of Muscle Rub may also be a good idea for those sporting trips, even to work into the feet when heading to the ski slopes.

Remember that any of the citrus oils – Lemon, Tangerine, Orange or Bergamot, can be added to drink bottles. Simply add the oil to the powdered SuperMix or SmartMix, work in well then add water and shake vigorously. A drop on a slice of fruit or spritzed from your 4mil sprayer onto salad can keep you functioning at top levels.

Sometimes the stresses of travel can result in blisters that make you feel awkward and uncomfortable. A combination of equal parts Black Pepper, Sweet Fennel and Copiaba can make a difference. This is also a great blend to add to your Zija Oil for dry or problematic skin. Of course AGX Skin is one of my favorites for addition to fractionated coconut oil and use in massage.
