Sources for Alternative
by Theresa Dunford
(I do not stock any of these products. Please contact the supplier direct)
These are sources for products, some of which both myself, my husband Barry and friends, have used. I have focussed mainly on U.K. distributors as I live in Scotland. Some of these products may also be available at your local health food store. I realise that this subject can be confusing as there is such a variety available today. This information is presented in the spirit of sharing material about products which have helped us, and those suppliers that we have found efficient and of good quality. It is not suggested that they are in any way a cure as the body ultimately heals itself, given the correct fuel (nutrition) plus a healthy lifestyle.
Nature plc, Burwash Common, East Sussex TN19 7LX. Telephone: 01435 883702.
Nutritional information helpline: 01435 882964. Website: www.highernature.co.uk. Also available at most health food stores.
An excellent and wide ranging source of nutritional products. Mail order only (catalogue available). The products I have used are: True Food Supernutrition Plus, high absorption A-Z multivitamin & mineral complex. Quoting their literature about "True Food" products: "Ordinary supplements use isolated vitamins, not the complexed forms found in food that the body expects to eat. As a major advance True Food vitamins and minerals are fermented in a special culture, which complexes them organically, just as they would be in any true food. True Food nutrients are more effective than isolated nutrients, so much lower intakes of True Food nutrients are needed than with regular supplements." Nutritionists I have spoken to inform me that vitamins and minerals work synergistically within our bodies so it can be helpful to take a multivitamin and mineral for this reason. They also sell colloidal silver and probiotics.

Sources for food grade hydrogen peroxide:
"We personally use Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide for our general health maintenance both for ourselves and our families.

For those new to the world of Hydrogen Peroxide, we have supplied numerous links for you to do your own investigation as there is already an enormous amount of research easily available on the web."

Ingredients: 20% each Dong Quai, Agnus Castus, 12% Blessed Thistle, 10% Squaw Vine, 4% each Black Cohosh, Cramp Bark, Siberian Ginseng, Barberry, Raspberry Leaf, Uva Ursi, Sarsaparilla, False Unicorn Root, Licorice, 1% Ginger, Cayenne (tinctures).

Synergy: Freephone orderline: 0800 197 8550 or 01698 827335 (free postage within the UK). Website: http://www.synergy-health-shop.co.uk Two excellent products they stock are: Bentonite Clay (Calcium Montmorillonite Clay) and Terramin.
Clay for bowel cleansing and detox:
"....Clay is a great healer, according to clay expert Ran Knishinsky in "The Clay Cure" (Healing Arts Press, 1998)....According to Knishinsky, benefits reported by people using liquid clay for a period of two to four weeks include: improved intestinal regularity; relief from chronic constipation, diarrhea, indigestion, and ulcers: a surge in physical energy; clearer complexion; brighter, whiter eyes; enhanced alertness; emotional uplift; improved tissue and gum repair; and increased resistance to infections." Knishinsky also says: "When bentonite absorbs water and swells, it is stretched open like a highly porous sponge; the toxins are drawn into these spaces by electrical attraction and bound fast. In fact, according to the Canadian Journal of Microbiology (31 , 50-53), bentonite can absorb pathogenic viruses, aflatoxin (a mold), and pesticides and herbicides including Paraquat and Roundup. The clay is eventually eliminated from the body with the toxins bound to its multiple surfaces." The ideal clay will adsorb poisons and toxins and flush them out of the body, therefore this product may be of assistance to those who are suffering from heavy metal (including mercury) toxicity. www.curezone.com/cleanse/bowel/bentonite.html
Also, from another website: www.shirleys-wellness-cafe.com (a very large site well worth visiting): "Calcium Montmorillonite Clay" is reported to contain no less than 67 minerals....is currently being utilized in hospitals outside of the United States where it has already proven its effectiveness....Generally speaking, make sure the label on the clay you take says, 'Montmorillonite,' as Bentonites and other types of clay can contain overwhelming amounts of certain minerals that could pose potential danger to the system....[In] December, 1964: Dr. Benjamin H. Ershoff, [began] NASA-sponsored research prompted by evidence that astronauts' bodies lose large amounts of calcium from the bones under conditions of weightlessness. According to doctors, such conditions weaken the body and increase chances that kidney stones may develop during flights lasting months or years. Ershoff found that supplementing the diet with calcium alone couldn't reverse the severe damage of severely accelerated osteoporosis--but clay did, for animals. Especially the red desert clay Terramin, (then called "ion-min) produced impressive results in promoting growth and preventing disorders in the bones of tested animals, Ershoff said." [I am against the testing of animals but as this information could be of help to osteoporosis sufferers I felt it important to include - TD]
They recommend taking Calcium Montmollonite Clay for up to six months only as a cleanse, but the TERRAMIN can be taken daily if required.The only potential problem I have found with these clays is that for people who have a weak digestion and/or weak spleen energy, they can have a 'dampening' effect on the body. Dampness, in oriental medicine, can manifest as discomfort after eating, oedema, skin problems, etc., depending on which organ or organs are affected by the dampness. However, those people can find the baths helpful.
