Dear Friends,

Dear Friends,

Here is the dreaded scenario.  It is a couple days before an important meeting, a family gathering, a get-together with friends or a party to which you have been looking forward.  Then here it comes…the tickle in the throat, chills, achy joints, heat behind the eyes or that foamy feeling in your stomach.  Oh great! WHY NOW???

This situation has played out time and time again but I want you to know that you are not powerless against an oncoming illness.  There are four techniques I use and they work for me 9 times out of 10. I had the “opportunity” to use these techniques this past week as I felt symptoms creeping into my bones just before a family gathering honoring my beloved uncle.
I am happy to report that the illness never took hold and I was healthy for the event.  So here are my suggestions, I know you will find them useful.

If you are one of my clients who take Endocrine Strengthener regularly you probably have noticed a decline in incidents of colds and flu.  Even so, if you suspect approaching ill health, step up your dose of Endocrine Strengthener.   Take seven droppers full two or three times a day for two days or until symptoms subside.  This alone is often enough to ward off the creeping crud.
You should be taking 2000-5000 IUs of vitamin D and at least 1000mgs of vitamin C.

Another weapon to add to your arsenal is hot water and ginger.  Keep a section of fresh ginger root or fresh lemon on hand in your refrigerator.  Cut slices of ginger or lemon [or both] and place in a one quart thermos. Fill thermos with boiling water and sip on it through out the day.  I find a Chinese tea cup or espresso cup is the perfect size.  You can drink it 1/2 cup every hour; drink it before it cools down, which is important as the hot water stimulates the lymphatic system and gets toxins moving. Do this once a month and you will eliminate the need for expensive detox programs. This is also an excellent treatment for lymphedema, edema and cellulitis.

Speaking of hot water…a hot bath with Detox Bath Salts can help you sweat out anything that is working on you.  You can find the recipe on the “Support” page of my website, but I will give you the quick version here.  To make a batch, mix 2 cups of baking powder, 1 cup of sea salt and 1 cup of Epsom salts.  Store in a plastic container and add ¼ - ½ cup to a hot bath.  Stay in the hot [but comfortable] bath for at least 20 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water to wash off toxins excreted through the skin.

If you don’t have a tub or you are unable to use one, you can do this as a foot soak with very good results. As a matter of fact you can do this rather than buy those kinoki foot pads [which I have my doubts about].  Take notice to the clarity of the water before and after the soak.  If you have any kind of foot problems, you will enjoy this.

Last but certainly not least, is the netti pot.  This is a way of cleansing the sinuses which is very important especially if you are prone to sinus infections.  The constant use of antibiotics used to clear up such infections can wreak havoc on the immune system and intestinal health. 

You can buy a netti pot or small creamer with a teapot type spout that will fit in your nostril.  Fill the pot with salt water made with non-iodized sea salt.  Tip your head sideways over a sink; press your tongue to the roof of your mouth; insert spout in upper nostril and allow the saltwater to flow out lower nostril. Reverse head and repeat using the other nostril.  More detailed instructions are available upon request.  How to use a neti pot.

Remember to be considerate of others. Wash your hands often. Sneeze into your elbow and stay home if you are contagious.

My daughter reminded me of one more thing that I should share with you. When you feel the ickies coming on, it is not incumbent upon you to tell everyone you meet that you are getting sick. You’d do better to tell yourself, “I will beat this” and concentrate on the parts of your body that feel good; even if it is just your hair and fingernails.

May you never need to use these techniques, but if you do may you never forget to use them!

Love and Light, Lori

Endocrine Strengthener
For autoimmune disorders – alopecia totalis

Endocrine Strengthener fortifies the immune system by nourishing the endocrine glands. It has been very helpful for those with alopecia totalis and highly recommended for anyone fighting a Candida overgrowth. This formula can also be to ward off colds and flu when taken at the first signs. Endocrine Strengthener is highly recommended for anyone suffering from any form of autoimmune disorder such as Alopecia Totalis; Lupus; arthritis; chronic fatigue; Epstein Barr and Crohn’s. Alopecia Areata, alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis are autoimmune disorders in which the immune system attacks health hair follicles causing baldness that ranges from patchy bald spots to total loss of body hair.
Note: At the first sign of cold or flu take 5-10 eyedroppers full 2-3 times daily for 2-4 days. Judge the proper amount based on your size and condition of your immune system.

* Are you looking for a natural treatment for fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Syndrome or Epstein Barr?
* Do you catch colds easily? (more than two a year)
* Do you have an autoimmune disorder? (Lupus; Crohn’s Disease;      
Alopecia Totalis etc.)
* Do you have hormonal or thyroid problems?
* Are you suffering from a chronic infection?
* Do you have frequent yeast infections or candida overgrowth?
* Do you get frequent cold sores or have genital herpes?
*  Are your lymph glands sore and swollen at times?
If you answer “yes” to any of the preceding questions, then your immune system could probably benefit from some support.
Alternative uses for Endocrine Strengthener
* Artery health and support for arteriolosclerosis
* Blood cleanser
* Leg cramps
* Nervousness
* Female complaints such as endometriosis and menopause (hot flashes, night sweats)
* Support and nourishment for the reproductive system (male and female)

Endocrine Strengthener supports the immune system. Use it for a fibromyalgia herbal treatment or autoimmune disorders. It contains Pau d arco that balances the immune. It is useful for herpes, warts, alopecia totalis and cancer. Black haw helps to maintain healthy hormone levels and is an antispasmodic. While chaste berries are also an antispasmodic, they also help depression and headaches. Echinacea is well known for its immune support but it is also an excellent blood purifier and infection fighter. Ginger improves circulation, prevents nausea and is very useful for childhood diseases such as whooping cough and chicken pox. Licorice cleanses the blood, clears the lungs, prevents colds and increases energy. Kelp is a good source of iodine which helps protect against radiation. It promote adrenal health and protects the thyroid, pituitary gland and arteries.
Endocrine Strengthener is an outstanding natural treatment for fibromyalgia, alopecia totalis, Epstein Barr and is most helpful in preventing colds.


What to Expect When Taking
Endocrine Strengthener for Alopecia

            Endocrine Strengthener is an herbal tincture that balances the immune system. If you read my story on my website, you probably know that it cured my Alopecia Totalis (loss of hair, eyebrows and eyelashes). Since then I have enormous success with my clients. I recommend giving it at least three to six months of consistent doses to give your immune system a chance to normalize.
            Endocrine Strengthener comes in a four oz bottle and the dose is 1 dropper (ONE SQUEEZE OF THE BULB) per 50 lbs, of body weight 2 times daily (usually morning and evening). If for some reason you miss a dose, simply double the next dose. One bottle lasts about a month for 150 lb person at the normal dose. Please read all the literature that comes with your order.
            For the first week it is suggested to double the normal dose to help jump-start your immune system.
I would say that the success rate of those who have stayed in touch with me and have been consistent in their doses is about 80-90 percent.
Some people show results in the first month but I suggest taking Endocrine Strengthener for at least three to six months to give it a chance to rebuild your immune system. Children seem to recover quicker than adults do and women generally recover quicker than men. Also you should consider the degree of alopecia you have and adjust the time accordingly.
If you have Alopecia Areata [patchy balding] give it at least 3 months. If you have Alopecia Totalis [no hair, eyebrows or eyelashes] give it at least 5 months. If you have Alopecia Universalis [no hair anywhere on the body] give it at least 6 months. Of not everyone will fall into these categories as we are all individuals.
You should start to see hair growing after this time. You will probably notice that you have more energy, fewer colds and generally just feel better due to your improved immune system. But please keep in touch with me and let me know how you are feeling; though some cases can be stubborn; there are things we can do to tweak your recovery.
This really works; try to be patient; one gentleman took 9 months before hair started showing but he had the most severe form, alopecia universalis.
            When the hair first comes in it is light and wispy but as it grows it turns back to its natural thickness and color.
You should continue to take Endocrine Strengthener if you see re-growth. Remember that it is not just growing hair but it is restoring your compromised immune system. This takes time.
            For anyone who has had alopecia for any length of time and has tried many treatments that ultimately failed, it is hard to believe that anything will work. I know because after 11 years I had given up hope that I would EVER have hair again.
            So I ask you to trust the treatment because it works.
