What to Know when Shopping for
Natural Remedies & Herbal Treatments
Headache. Sore throat. Stuffy nose. Once you feel these symptoms you know the inevitable is coming: the dreaded cold. If you’re like most people, you will first head to your family doctor who, in turn, will most likely end up sending you home with a prescription for a lot of rest, fluids and over-the-counter cold medicine. Gee, thanks doc! But before you head to the pharmacy to stock up on your favorite conventional cold remedies, you might want to take a detour and rethink your choices.
Everyone knows that prescription medications should always be taken with caution in mind since harmful side effects from synthetic chemicals can be destructive to our bodies (neurological issues, sexual dysfunction, and hormonal changes). But before you grab that bottle of over-the-counter pain reliever or cough syrup, keep in mind that these medicines aren’t as safe as they claim to be. Over-the-counter medicines also contain man-made, unnatural chemicals and when taken for long periods of time can promote stomach bleeding, kidney damage and actually increase your risk of developing even worse diseases such as stroke, heart attack and liver failure. Of course we all want to feel better when we’re not feeling well, but there are healthier ways to do so - starting with taking natural and organic herbal remedies.
Natural honeysuckle and sweet licorice root will help relieve those pesky cold symptoms. Organic lavender oil will treat your headache. And organic passionflower leaf and St. John’s wort will help you get some much-needed rest. Not only do we carry natural herbal remedies, natural treatments and supplements to treat your cold, but our products also help relieve PMS symptoms, anxiety and even give you a boost of energy when you need it most.
