*******Letter from the Editor*******

Dear Health Enthusiasts,

This month you will notice a couple of changes to our newsletter. We have made some changes to Naturally Herbs. Recently, we have lowered our prices to 10% to 15% below cost with most items listed at the higher discount. Because of this change, we can offer more products to more individuals on a regular basis. However, as these prices are now below what we have ever offered as a special discount, we have eliminated product sales specials. We will still occassionally offer specials that involve free educational information or something similar. I'm sure you will agree that this is a wonderful change for everyone.

Aloe Vera for Oral Health
New reports prove that the aloe vera plant, which has been used to heal skin for more than 2,000 years, can also treat many oral health problems including canker sores, cold sores, herpes simplex viruses, lichen planus and gingivitis.

Aloe vera, an inexpensive alternative remedy, accelerates healing and reduces pain associated with canker sores and blisters on the lips or mouth.

Aloe vera can be taken as aloe vera juice and aloe vera gel. These two modes of delivery are even recognized by the FDA.

The anti-inflammatory actions of aloe vera gel also provide support for its therapeutic effect in inflammatory bowel disease.

*******Ask The Herb Specialist*******

Q. Hi, my name is Erica. Our family is dealing with a possible parisitic invasion! Our doctor recommended taking a tincture of wormwood, black walnut and cloves along with montmorillonite clay. I am nursing a baby and am concerned about the effects on my breastmilk or the baby. I don't want my milk supply to dry up or the baby to be adversely efected by these herbs. The doctor seemed confident that it was alright- is she right? Just in need of a second opinion. Thanks for your time- erica gonzalez

A. Unless you know that you have parasites and that they are severely impacting your health (and/or) the health of your baby, I would really advise against doing any of the products you describe. Black Walnut certainly does decrease milk supply and the others are just a bit too much of an unknown. You could consider trying garlic but many babies will stop feeding if they don’t care for the taste of the garlic.
