Herb Food Supplements For The
Take charge of your health

Herb Food Supplements For The Human Body!!
“A wise man should consider that health is the
greatest of human blessings” (Hippocrates). This
statement should guide us in all of our actions, especially where
our health is concerned. The realization that Body (Lifestyle),
Spirit (Desire), and Mind (Belief) must come together is the first
step to better health.
All individuals should take an active part in the
maintenance of their health – and in the treatment of their
disorders with the guidance of a health care professional. The more
we take it upon ourselves to learn about nutrition, the better
prepared we will be to take that active role.
Nature intended to fuel our inner healing force with right natural
substances to enable the body to function up to its fullest
potential. “Nature’s – resources whole foods, vitamins, minerals,
enzymes, amino acids, phytochemicals, and other natural bounties –
are designed for use in our immune systems” (Phyllis A. Batch, CAN).
The body is a complex organism that has the ability to
heal itself – if only you listen to it and respond with proper
nourishment and care. The human body is the greatest machine on
earth. Think of your body as being composed of millions of tiny
little engines. Some of these engines work in unison; some work
independently. All are on call twenty-four hours a day. In order for
the engine to work properly, they require specific fuels. The fuel
we give our bodies engines come directly from the things we consume.
The foods we eat contain nutrients. These nutrients come in the form
of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, water, amino acids, carbohydrates,
and lipids. It is these nutrients that sustain life by providing us
with the basic materials our bodies need to carry on their daily
Individual nutrients differ in form and function, and
in the amount needy by the body; however, they are all vital to our
health. Research has shown that each part of the body contains high
concentrations of certain nutrients. A deficiency of these nutrients
will cause the body part to malfunction and eventually break down –
and, like dominos, other body parts will follow. To keep this from
happening, we need a proper diet and appropriate nutritional
supplements for Energy, Eyes, Liver, Colon, Intestinal, Nervous
System, Glandular, Pancreas, Adrenals, Digestion, Skeletal System,
Respiratory system, Immune System, Natural antibiotics, Circulatory
System, Hair, Skin, Nails and even Weight Loss.
