Breathe Easy this Spring with Botanical Allergy Support

Spring has sprung, and the flowers, trees, and grasses are all in glorious full bloom. Unfortunately, something else is also in full bloom: spring allergies!

Exposure to spring pollen sends your immune system into a frenzy of activity. Your body starts rapidly making Th1 and Th2 immune cells. Some of us produce far more Th2 than Th1. This imbalance causes histamine levels to skyrocket! And when we have too much histamine, we end up with a variety of allergy symptoms, including:

  • Coughing and sneezing
  • Watery, itchy, red eyes
  • Runny, stuffy, or itchy nose
  • Difficulty breathing, wheezing, shortness of breath

How to Reduce Your Risk for Breast and Prostate Cancer

There’s a time of life when many men and women begin to experience unwelcome changes in hormonal health. Women notice worsening PMS, painful periods, hot flashes, or painful intercourse. Men face less frequent and shorter erections and loss of energy. This time of life is also when we become increasingly aware of the risks of a hormone-related cancer diagnosis. It’s not a theoretical concern, either! If you’re a woman, you have a lifetime chance of developing breast cancer of one in seven. Men have a one in three chance of developing prostate cancer. Yikes!! These statistics can make you feel like a walking time bomb!

In this article, I’d like to share a promising way to help reduce your risk of breast and prostate cancer while improving your sexual health and function.

For thousands of years, people across the globe have distilled the healing properties of botanical plants into concentrated tinctures by slowly simmering them in water. I call these extracts “liquid gold,” as they offer a fast-acting, highly effective, and easy way to enjoy the extraordinary health benefits and symptom relief of our rainforest botanicals.

Peruvian Botanicals: The Secret to a Healthy Weight

I’m the first to admit that although I eat a mostly organic diet, avoid bread, and haven’t eaten four-legged animals in more than 40 years, I am not a poster child for healthy eating. I love ice cream, carrot cake, macaroni and cheese, and rich lemon tarts from our local French bakery. (And don’t get me started on pizza!) I’m usually successful at pulling back from these delicious foods, but not always! They are, after all, some of life’s most delightful pleasures!

Reconnect—with a Soul Warming, Body Restoring Cup of Tea

Tea drinking is integral to every culture and is so much more than a beverage. A cup of tea in most cultures represents relaxation, connection, and ritual — from the Japanese tea ceremony to the British cuppa.  But in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, people worldwide are reconnecting with another aspect of tea.  Tea as “root medicine” and “leaf medicine” has been essential to the lives of many of our grandmothers and great-grandmothers.

Love Is in the Air with Royal Maca!

Valentine’s Day is on the way, and love is in the air! At least love is supposed to be in the air!

That means there’s never been a better time to consider Maca to rev up your hormones!

The Best Botanicals for Unresolved Thyroid Issues: Part 2

As a thyroid patient advocate, I’ve gotten questions like these every day for 25 years. Everyone seems to want natural solutions to their health challenges, and the 20+ million people in the U.S. with thyroid disease are no exception.

A Holiday Message for 2022

We have chosen the king of the Peruvian rainforest as the vehicle for our holiday message—the Yanapuma, or Black Jaguar—who adorns the front cover of a new book of poetry, Poems by Elena de Nazca. This unique book of magnificent poems is by Elena Rojas Martinez, a cofounder of Whole World Botanicals.

Less Holiday Stress and Blues with Botanicals

Behind the smiling faces in holiday photos, there’s often a very different story. If you’re like me, you’re shopping, decorating, cooking, entertaining, and traveling – and all these demands are on top of working. It’s no surprise that we end up feeling stressed and exhausted.

The holidays are also a time when feelings of loss are heightened, as we remember people we’ve lost physically and people we’ve lost emotionally. The season of joy can end up becoming a season of sadness or depression for some.
