The Importance of the Calcium/Magnesium
Are you taking
your calcium w/magnesium and still getting leg or foot cramps? The problem
is most likely in the balance (or imbalance) of the two. The first fundamental
is that these two minerals are necessary for life and well being. They
are both powerful and each has many different functions. All life organisms
need calcium and magnesium. But the balance of the two is essential.
magnesium function together. It is imbalances between these minerals
or deficiencies in them that can cause: sleep difficulties, body tension,
fatigue, muscle spasms, cramps or stiffness, heart problems, kidney
stress, adrenal stress, premenstrual syndrome, bad disposition, weak
bones, nervousness, constipation and racing heart.
Due to the heavy
promotion of calcium, many people have the false impression that calcium
alone is necessary. Calcium is added to nearly every cereal, cracker,
juice and antacid. This has now created a calcium/magnesium imbalance
for a large number of people. None of these "calcium added"
products have balanced them with added magnesium. This imbalance can
produce symptoms listed above.
regulates the body's use of calcium and other minerals, it is a senior
mineral. Without magnesium, calcium cannot be used properly by the body;
this can result in various body problems.

imbalance, NSP has a wonderful product called Magnesium Complex, Stock

any of the above symptoms, you may notice they soon disappear.
a large roll in adversely affecting our health, and during stressful
times we burn extra calcium and magnesium. Heart palpitations can be
a side effect of stress. Since I started taking an extra 2 (sometimes
3) Magnesium Complex per day in addition to Skeletal Strength Calcium,
I have noticed I don't get heart palpitations or muscle cramps.

Testimonials from Very Satisfied Users*
Children's Focus Helper
matter how much you love your children, a limited attention span can
cause anxiety and stress at home and at school. About a year ago, my
son, who is in the second grade, was having a huge problem paying attention
and focusing on the work he received in class. I started thinking that
there might be something natural to help and soon realized that I already
had the answer: Focus Attention, which I was taking every day. In his
morning juice, I used the powdered Focus Attention, a crushed up Kids
Calcium, and Colloidal Minerals.
days, we heard back from his teacher. No only was he focusing on his
work, he was more outgoing and willing to participate in projects. We
kept this routine up for three weeks and then stopped the Focus Attention.
Within two days his teacher noticed that he was starting slip backwards
again. We added the product back in his juice and, as before, he responded
very quickly. We have been using this combination now for over eight
months with fantastic results." Chris Ritchason, Bakersfield,

on life because of minor aches and pains. Luckily, Nature's Sunshine
can help with EverFlex Cream. EverFlex Cream has been clinically proven
to increase joint range of motion through relieving discomfort.
Here is what
users of Everflex pain relief cream are saying:
"I was given a sample of the new EverFlex Cream. I am amazed
how much it helped my knee! I had been using Advil for the pain which
I no longer need. I just purchased a jar of EverFlex Cream to have on
hand". Kimberly Armstrong of West Union, OH
"I really like the EverFlex Cream for pain due to arthritis
in my spine. It works better than the Dual Action Glucosamine cream
I had tried before. Very fast relief is the best part! It starts working
in about 5 minutes and completely stops the pain within 15min! The relief
lasts for several hours! " Bobby Baker of Georgetown, OH
"I found the EverFlex Cream quite helpful in easing discomfort
in my hands and wrists caused by a chronic health condition. A very
small amount of the cream was sufficient, and I felt better in 10-15
minutes." Lois B.
"I use my hands a great deal for work. When I went through
menopause, my joints really stiffened up. EverFlex has helped me quite
a bit. Now I can use my hands without problems." Jennifer
"I stepped off a four-foot stool and jammed my back and neck.
The usual topical creams helped, but when I started using the EverFlex
Cream, I stopped using all other topical applications. I feel it was
instrumental in the healing process." Mary W., Illinois

from chronic joint pain, you should also consider taking EverFlex tablets
internally. You know you can trust Nature's Sunshine products because
they are backed by over 32 years of expertise and unsurpassed quality!

Gum Infection and Pain Gone
"Normally when I have a tooth or gum problem I make a poultice
of Black Walnut, Echinacea/Golden seal and APS 11. I did not have these
when I got my last infection and wondered what to do. Some one suggested
making a mouth wash of Black Walnut and Nature's Fresh. Ido not have
the Black Walnut so just tried the Nature's Fresh spray, stock # 9834-7.
I used it
like a mouth wash. The very first time I used it the pain was gone!
I continued to use it several times a day and soon the infection was
not be typical.
Question of the Month: What herb is good for anxiety attacks, ie, heaviness
in the chest?
this is not a simple "one herb" answer. Anxiety attacks happen
when the blood sugar has dropped below normal (if there is not the proper
amount of sugar in the blood, the brain can't process information properly)
and the person has low thyroid.
To support the
thyroid, use Thyroid Support daily.
To prevent blood
sugar drops, use Adrenal Support daily and alternate with Licorice Root
ATC (use a bottle of one, then switch to the other). In addition, eat
small, frequent meals, eating at least every 4 hours, have breakfast
within one hour of awakening, and have protein in every meal. Never
eat carbohydrates without protein. And eliminate "junk" foods,
any that are "white" such as white flour, lard, and white
sugar and everything made with these ingredients. You will find, if
you evaluate after each "attack," that the person hadn't eaten
for quite a while and/or had been eating very poorly.
REALLY works and eating this way will improve general health so much
that it is worth it. Just imagine, life without anxiety attacks just
because of small dietary changes.

may Prevent Stomach Ulcers
Researchers say high levels of vitamin C in the blood have the potential
to prevent peptic ulcers and stomach cancer. A study led by researchers
from the San Francisco VA Medical Center analyzed the relationship between
vitamin C levels and infection by Helicobacter pylori, the bacteria
that causes peptic ulcers, and found those individuals with lower levels
of vitamin C in their blood were more likely to become infected by the
tested blood samples of more than 7,000 adults for H. pylori infection.
It was found that "Participants with the highest blood levels of
vitamin C had a 25-percent lower prevalence of infection."
Dr. Simon says,
"It would still be prudent for people who test positive for H.
pylori infection to increase their intake of vitamin C," because
it mitigates the effects of the infection.
