“Our grandson sometimes gets a horrible croupy cough, so we decided to try C.C.-W on him with wonderful results. It stopped the cough almost immediately. Thank the Lord for the gift of herbs and for knowledgeable people who know how to put the combinations together. We also helped our grandson when he got a kidney infection and was in pain. awful We gave him Cornsilk, Marshmallow and Echinacea. Within three hours he was able to urinate totally pain free. I couldn’t believe how fast he improved! Herbs really do work! They’re God’s medicine and who can make things better than our Creator?
I also had a lady with cysts on her ovaries and she was in great pain. We used CST-M, He Shou Wu, Bee Pollen and friendly bacteria on her. We were amazed at how quick the results were! By the next day she had greatly improved and by the second or third day she was almost totally pain free. Needless to say, she’s a happy client.” (Carolyn Gookins, Fountaintown)
“My neck had been sore when I turned it from side to side for over a year. I take a lot of supplements and herbs, but it would not get any better (no worse, but no better). Then I heard about the desert herb SUTHERLANDIA that fights viruses and their torments, even AIDS where the body is attacking itself. Each morning, I applied Sutherlandia externally from each ear out to each shoulder and then on the back of the neck and down the spine a little. I then took 20 drops by mouth and gradually worked up to 40 drops per day over the period of a month. After a month I am a good 80% to 90% better! I am impressed. Thank you Pure Herbs and thank you Sutherlandia!” (E. C. W., Detroit, MI)
"I have had very good results with Sutherlandia. I believe it has definitely helped with my menopausal symptoms. It has made me more energetic, given me more stamina and made me less stressed. I have been under a great deal of stress and people wonder how I keep on my feet. I know the Sutherlandia is a big part of it. Also, for a long time I have had ‘kinky" knees (the only way I know how to describe them) and they are completely better. No problem at all now. Also, my teeth had become very sensitive to hot and cold and I had tried taking extra minerals, etc. and I still had the problem, but then I started taking the Sutherlandia and my teeth were no longer sensitive. In addition to all of the above, my massage therapist was always commenting on my ‘swollen" ankles. Well, guess what??? No more. They are fine now. My massage therapist says, ‘it must be the Sutherlandia that you are taking." She must be right because that is the only new product I am taking. The only thing I found with the Sutherlandia is that if I take it too late in the day it tends to keep me awake at night. I was giving it to my son, Burt, at bedtime too and it doesn"t seem to bother him though. It really is helping Burt to be calmer and less anxious. One more thing is that I mix the Sutherlandia in a half and half mixture with Five Good." (Cheryl Lawson, Derby VT)
"I just praise and thank God for these wonderful Pure Herbs that you have discovered for our good health. I thank you very much for your love and kind consideration. My family and some of my friends are very satisfied with your great products and your God given knowledge." (Fernando Mariano, Kekaha Kauai, HI)
"I recently starting using a very special herb and have experienced very positive results. I believe this herb, Borage, needs to be re-introduced to all. Actually, I was reading through the 2003 Pure Herbs calendar description of herbs and I felt a divine pull towards the description of Borage. It brings ‘joy to the mind and purging sadness and melancholy from the heart." The past year had some very negative moments so I thought I would give Borage a try. I knew it would step in and uplift and it certainly did. I take 20 drops 3x/day. Thanks again Pure Herbs." (Sheila Kaplowitz, Hendersonville, NC)
"I have been a distributor and user of Pure Herbs for many years….with this I have become a resource also for my family assisting them with herbal remedies as needed. They have learned to trust the herbs more than medications after seeing results and as a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother it is an honor to see them using and respecting herbal programs above other treatments. Most recently, we have experienced what we call a miracle. My 14 year old grand-daughter has had severe problems since she started her periods several years ago. Every month she has experienced pain so severe it required a trip to the emergency room for pain medication strong enough to help it subside. The pain was also accompanied by vomiting and diarrhea and then a ten day period with continued cramping and heavy flow. As a teenager she was not open to taking the herbs and it resulted in many trips to specialist who diagnosed endometriosis and also found a cyst on her ovary. Their treatment was to take, what we saw, as very dangerous medication (because of side effects) and eventually surgery. She is very tiny and weights less than 100 pounds and she dreaded each month and could not plan activities around that time because of this situation. I was able to convince her to at least try the herbs and had her take 10 drops of each of Wild Yam and F.P.-W three times each day (she then increased it to 20 drops). After taking the herbs for only a short time, she called me one morning and was crying (with joy) because she had started her period and not even realized it. She had no pain, no vomiting, no diarrhea, no heavy flow and was able to go to the beach party they had planned that day. Her period lasted only four days and was very mild. Not only did the herbs do the job, but in such a short time. She is now able to lead a normal life and has cancelled her appointments for surgery and further medical treatment. God had the answer in His creation of herbs from the beginning…..lest we take His Wisdom and Knowledge and use it." (Joyce Kilpatrick, Alpena, MI)
"I’ve been a runner most of my life and can’t ever remember not finishing a run until one day last year. I found myself slowing to a walk and then sitting on the ground roadside knowing that what I was feeling was very wrong and that it was too far to crawl home. ‘Allow yourself to believe that you can figure it out." Thank you, Dr. Watkins for that repeated admonishment. So many times over the years it has cleared my mind when asked to help someone else faced with pretty intimidating conditions. Now it was my turn. How I determined it was a high mercury saturation level shutting me down is detail the need for brevity here won’t allow. Shortly after my little no option roadside rest, I had all the mercury amalgams (tooth fillings) replaced with body friendly composites and began an herbal regimen to assist my body to rid itself of the poison. I believe my experience yesterday is an indication that the herbal agenda was successful. I finished a four-mile run on an August afternoon with a heat index of 110 degrees in Houston, Texas feeling like I could run a couple more miles, but had other things on my schedule.
This is one detox agenda that might be considered following mercury amalgam removal. As the iris indicates and kinesiology (muscle testing) confirms, we are uniquely made. We each have our own genetic strengths and weaknesses. Given this fact, it follows that my body may require support in areas of weakness to fulfill this cleanse that yours does not. Therefore you may require different nutrients or herbal sources.
Our first step should always be to eliminate those foods and beverages that aren’t contributing to health. To free up body energy to deal with antigens (undesirable elements) it seems only logical that we would not want to add to its workload, slow down the cleansing process and distress it further by continuing to eat and drink or otherwise expose it to other sources of poison. If you enjoy using the expression, ‘Hey, we gotta live in the real world" to justify your food and drink, please know that the world's diseases may also be yours to enjoy sooner and in a greater measure. Immediately after the dental procedure I applied Arnica to my face and upper and lower jaw hourly for the first day. I took 5 drops of Arnica 4x a day for the shock to my entire system for about 7 days. I drank about 2 quarts of cilantro green drink daily for about 2 months. I applied Indian Tobacco and L.C.-W under the jaw and neck to encourage the lymph's to release poisons. I applied Vitamin E, Oil of Cajeput, Arnica and Scullcap to my gums to soothe the violated nerves. Because of their analgesic properties, I was also relieved of the need for a pharmaceutical pain killer as such deep and extensive dental work may require.
When cleansing, it is imperative that the ‘plumbing" or the way out be open. I used 80 drops each of C.C.E.-W and L.B.R.-W in the AM and PM. If your diet lacks vegetable and whole grain fiber, add Psyllium to your regimen to bind and help transport poisons out of the body. Some people would benefit from a series of colonics (colon irrigation).
On the cellular level, we know the body uses minerals to clean itself. I used Research Formula 80 drops 4x/day. A.C.S. and T-W are other wonderful sources. The sea vegetables have a capability to bind inorganic mineral and radiation. In our EMF (Electro magnetic fields) polluted environment they are truly our friends. On such an intense cleansing regimen, one might consider the use of Black Cohosh, Plantain and Virginia Snake Root as poison antidotes. I used 80 drops of each 4x/day for the first week and then 3x/day thereafter.
I used 80 drops of Formula Three and True American Ginseng each 3x/day for adaptogenic support for my body’s overall distress. It takes energy to cleanse. Also, 80 drops a day of Sarsaparilla for its lymphatic support and affinity to pull heavy metals. They’ll put a smile on your face! I knew it was working because my friends kept asking me what I was grinning about. They said, ‘What has gotten into you?" to which I replied, ‘I believe it’s what’s getting out." I took 80 drops of Ginkgo and Gota Kola each 3x/day for their brain enhancing, heavy metal pulling properties. I believe they helped to remove mercury’s finger from the ‘delete button" of my short-term memory banks. And don"t be surprised to be remembering things you"d rather forget. Take this cleansing opportunity to let the old morbid, mental material go as well.
Cranesbill, Inkberry, Horsetail and Oatstraw are known for their ability to pull mercury. I took 40 drops of Cranesbill and 20 drops of Inkberry 3x/day. I also took 80 drops of Horsetail and Oatstraw 3x/day.
Don’t forget the antioxidant properties and overall support for healing of Vitamins: A, C, and E with Selenium. Pure Herbs, Ltd has excellent sources of all of these nutrients. I took 80 drops of Wild Rose Hips 3x/day. Bilberry and Chippewa Pine are also excellent sources of natural Vitamin C with its full spectrum of bioflavanoids. I took 800 to 1200 units of Vitamin E and 50,000 to 100,000 units of A and 2,000 to 4,000 units of Vitamin D daily (Pure Herbs vitamins from fish oil).
My kidneys and bladder let me know they did not appreciate the mercury now being eliminated through their channels. Cornsilk Comb and Buchu gave me immediate relief. I took 80 drops of each and repeated the doses an hour later. The discomfort passed. Our lymph's tend to act as a repository when the body is on poison overload. My lymph's are especially sluggish. I encouraged them to release by using 20 drops 3x/day of Red Root and 60 drops 3x/day of Goldenseal & Echinacea.
Bad guys are opportunistic. They will gravitate toward a location of least resistance, move in, shut the place down and take over. This must be a principle of life, because it is also true within the body. For instance, my heart, liver, pancreas, lungs an are working well and didn"t need assistance through this detox, but as my neurogenic eye signs indicate, the (CNS) Central Nervous System (brain & spinal cord) is not my strongest component. It sustained the greatest injury from the mercury. For (CNS) repair and comfort I took 80 drops each of Scullcap and Lady"s Slipper 3x/day. I also took 5 to 10 drops of Indian Tobacco 3x/day. Thanks to a compassionate Creator all of life is cyclic and so is cleansing. My energy level and clarity of mind have been sustained over this past year and I"ve had some rough days as well. Recognizing the "not so good" days as being ‘more cleansing," I am welcoming the elimination of yet another pocket or layer of mercury. The amalgams were put in between the ages of 10 and 15 years old. The ‘big 60" is not far off. Those were whole decades to absorb and store a known poison.
Any thoughts of the expense or inconvenience of such an intense regimen were quickly dispelled as I contemplated, ‘inconvenient as compared to what? Sitting alongside the road and trying to remember my name?"
I maintained this intense regimen for about 2 months and then began tapering off until now I am doing a very low maintenance program of about half the drops only 1 or 2x daily and alternating some of the herbs. On the “not so good” days I return to the original program.
Thank you, Pure Herbs, Ltd. for making available to our nation herbal sources with all the true virtue of some of God’s best foods at a time on this planet when we need their help as never before. (For Life, Jonny in TX)
"My husband has osteoarthritis in his hands. He has tried several different natural remedies with no relief. Finally, he tried L.P.-W (Liquid Pearle). On the second day he remarked that his hands no longer ached. He continues to take Liquid Pearle and is pain free. He takes one half dropper full three times a day." (Barbara Burr, Derby, VT)
"Our beloved 11 1/2 year old dog Barney was diagnosed with Canine Anemia/Auto-immune Disease (his white blood cells were attacking and destroying his red ones). The Veterinarian put him on Prednisone and antibiotics with little encouragement for his recovery. When I asked Dr. Watkins if he had any suggestions, he immediately said Sutherlandia, Greasewood, Protein, HI.I.-W and A.C.S. He also said Vitamin E would oxygenate the bloodstream and assist the herbs. He said to apply them to the pads of his feet. We were surprised at how absorbent the pads were. They soaked up the herbs like sponges. The improvement was quickly noticed by everyone. The Vet said it was ‘amazing" how well he was responding to their treatments (we hadn"t told them about the herbs). In our last contact with them, they said they could not get over how well our Barney had gotten. They said that by all accounts Barney should no longer be with us. Thank you Pure Herbs and Dr. Watkins. We now have Barney on A.M.F.-W (Animal Maintenance Formula) which we plan to continue as long as he is with us." (A friend)
"I am a Nutritional Counselor and Therapist. This is my husbands success story: In Florida we have several different kinds of parasites. My husbands back was attacked by parasites and was all puffed up like a growth or something. It got fatter and fatter! We had it evaluated by a professional and they said it was parasites. For three months we tried herbs and other remedies with no success. Orinoco Extract did help with the pain. This growth was three inches in diameter and was located on his spine. It was the size of a goose egg and very painful! I put two drops of Sutherlandia straight onto the growth and lightly spread it around until it was absorbed into the skin. I repeated this procedure two-three times per day. The growth began to shrink and the pain began to decrease. During the next three weeks it just kind of went away. There was a minor recess and the skin looked stained, but it is continuing to heal very nicely and has a healthy color as it is healing! It also healed my intestinal infection! Thank you Pat Courter for sharing Sutherlandia with me and Pure Herbs for making this wonderful product available to us." (Lynn, Ft. Myers)
"I have had hot flashes and night sweats for several years. I did not want to use estrogen, due to the side effects it can cause. A friend introduced me to the Pure Herbs product, MP.E.-P and to my surprise it worked instantly. Whenever I feel a hot flash coming on, and those of who have them know they sometimes can come with little or no warning, I simply take the recommended dosage and instantly my flashes disappear. MP.E.-P is truly a God sent herbal solution. I sincerely recommend it to anyone who suffers from hot flashes and night sweats. Thank you, thank you, thank you Pure Herbs for your products!" (Helyne Lloyd, Chattanooga, TN)
"When I was 70 years old, approximately two years ago, on February 20th I was riding my bike when a taxi hit me. I was knocked to the pavement and ended up with ten broken bones. The doctor that saw me from emergency was great. He let me continue my herb nutrient program in the hospital. Used Ol’ Number 11 after every meal, one dropper full. I also rubbed Arnica and Big Five on my broken ribs and broken collar bone and my bruised ankle. I also used both of these on my broken knee cap until it was in a permanent cast and then I couldn’t reach it. At night I took one dropper full of Willow. My cast was removed on April 18th and I continued using my herbs. By the middle of May, after receiving physical therapy and learning how to walk again, I was able to go back to my Librarian job. On June 14 I was able to ride my bike again. I still continue to take Ol’ Number 11 for arthritis which has eased up quite a bit since taking this product. My doctor said that for all I’ve been through I have made a remarkable recovery. I’m glad he is not opposed to me using my herbal supplements. I am grateful for my Pure Herbs products and your company! Keep helping people in this prescription crazy world." (Sister Mary Steinkamp, SNJM, Portland, OR)
"I helped a lady who had been blind for about ten years. She couldn"t even see light. The first time I saw her was right after Thanksgiving; after her second visit, just prior to Christmas, she phoned me crying. She said she had been sitting at her kitchen table LOOKING at her wedding rings and her Christmas tree, etc. I had her taking Stone Root, I.S.-F, minerals and Chromium. She is also beginning to see colors!"
I would also like to share a testimony about my daughter-in-law. She had open heart surgery before we met her, over 20 years ago. She made annual trips to Bethesda, MD to N.I.H. (National Institute of Health). On May 6, 1997, she died on her way to the hospital; she straight-lined between 1 or 1 1/2 minutes in the ambulance. She recovered before they used the paddles. My son took her to N.I.H. after her second stay in the local hospital. N.I.H. said she had about three weeks to live without surgery, which she refused. At her request, we started mostly with Pure Herbs HI.I.-W, H.I.K.-W, Bugleweed, Bladderwrack, tons of Arnica, Herbal Adjustment and F & F. Her Aorta Valve tested 46% functional, now = 100%, the mitral valve =82% now 100%, she is maintaining good potassium, sodium and iron levels. They told her she could never lose weight and she lost 70lbs. There are a few things from other companies that were used, but mostly we used Pure Herbs. She has made medical history. Praise the Lord, His Products and the dedicated people like you for producing them!" (Edna Ford, Connersville, IN)
"Dear friends at Pure Herbs, my husband and I have been married for 12 years. We decided to try and have a baby, but could not conceive. We went to see Reuben Schwartz and he thought I might have Endometriosis and said I might try Red Clover Blended. He suggested I take three bottles of the Red Clover Blended. This was August 17, 2001. I took the three bottles of Red Clover Blended and made a visit to my medical doctor and she couldn’t find any Endometriosis at all. I called my medical doctor one week later and she said to take a home pregnancy test. I did and it was positive (December 12, 2001). I cried because on this same day I received a paper saying that my husband had problems too and that we would probably not be able to conceive. I thank God, Reuben and Red Clover Blended for giving me my little miracle. Our miracle was born July 31, 2002, a boy. We named him Lukas. Reuben said he should have been named Red Clover (ha ha). We went to see Reuben again on August 5, 2003 and he said Lukas was perfect! Thank you so much, what a blessing he is!" (Linda Douglas, Scottsville, KY)
"Hurray for Sutherlandia! My whole family will not be without this herb. One Big Caution with this herb, a little is more! We have been using the Sutherlandia for about eight months now. I began with eight to ten drops two times per day, because of the potency of Sutherlandia. Wow! I began to have some awful looking bowel movements of all kinds; along with all kinds of strange looking debris that was passed. In the first few weeks, liquid would be mixed with solids. It is important to drink plenty of water, especially while taking the Sutherlandia! The water seems to be needed to help liquefy the fecal matter, and makes things move easier! Be near a bathroom until you know what to expect! When I had to go, I had about a two minute warning to get there and it was over fairly quick! In about two months, my stomach had flattened to where it was hard for me to see it unless I bent over. You know now what I was full of? Shh….quiet don"t say it!!! Whew! I"m sure glad it is gone! If it starts to come back I know what to do about it. It is extremely important to get enough of an easily digestible form of protein. I craved pinto beans and corn big time for the first six months of taking the Sutherlandia and I feel better when I eat them often. At month three, I increased to 18-20 drops twice a day. At month eight I began taking ten drops each morning and five drops in the early afternoon, because Sutherlandia seems to act as a stimulant with me! I was having three-five bowel movements a day and I started having leg cramps. I took 80 drops of HI.K-W and 80 drops of CA.-W and that seemed to solve the problem! Getting rid of the poisons and accumulated waste (waist) caused me to feel better all over! It was like a burden rolling off my shoulders. If you are comfortable with yourself your immune system is stronger! When one of us feels sickly or has a sore throat, we use a few more drops of Sutherlandia. For extra support we also take 80 drops of both TL.-C and E.T.I.-W! Sutherlandia has carried us over many health obstacles with flying colors! Words just cannot express our joy and excitement over Sutherlandia!" (The Courters, Valley View, TX)
"I was introduced to Pure Herbs in March of 2003, by Brenda Guerra from McAllen, TX. I had contracted a very painful urinary tract infection and after four weeks and two full prescription of strong antibiotics, I was still suffering. Brenda, a long time friend, immediately took me to her mentor and herbalist, Bella Vladimirsky. Bella suggested I take Cornsilk and Cranberry tablets. Within two days I felt better and by the end of the week I was healed. Bella"s knowledge of the herbs healing properties was inspiring. I was also amazed at how quickly I felt better. I am now a believer in the herbs. Thank you for these wonderful all natural herbal products." (Velma Gonzales, Saint Ann, MO)
"Since taking your wonderful products, I have been very satisfied. The only little drawback is when trying to swallow some of the liquid combinations, particularly one called W.L.S. (weight control) which contains a good amount of capsicum which severely burned my tongue on the way down!! I remembered a trick thought up a couple of years ago that had been forgotten and since I believe in the liquid extracts, it has come in very handy. I take an empty gelatin capsule, which can be purchased from most health food stores or pharmacies in packages of 100-1,000 (an 00 is good for one dropperful). I fill it up and have numerous seconds to swallow with water before it collapses. In fact, the minute it hits the stomach I"m aware it has landed safely! This idea has made a tremendous impact in being able to take almost any objectable tasting combination. I wanted to share it with other readers and hope they can benefit as has been my experience." (Shila Van Wagenen, Penn Valley, CA)
"I’ve suffered with Endometriosis since I was sixteen and I am now thirty something. Back in 1991, my doctor told me I would have to have a surgical procedure to remove the damaged tissue. So I did. After the surgery I found out that the surgeons removed what they could, but on my left side they were unable to remove the damaged tissue which was wrapped around my bowel, fallopian tube, and ovary. They said this would require about ten hours of surgery. I decided to look into other options. I decided to wait on more surgery since one month after the original surgery the junk that was removed was back. The doctors put me on hormone replacement for about 6 months which I was told ‘might help, but no guarantees". Of course, this hormone replacement just made me a crazy women with hot flashes and did nothing to help with the Endometriosis. My doctor then decided to put me on a continuous cycle of birth control so I could decide when I wanted to suffer with the relentless pain. He recommended I only have a period two times per year. So up until February of 2003, this is what I did. I still did have pain during my cycles, but it was only really bad pain for a day or two. I finally grew tired and worried about being on the birth control for so many years, especially since it was not completely helping me with the unbearable cramping. So I went off of it. Since I do the Newsletters here at Pure Herbs, Ltd. and see all of the testimonials that come, in I knew we had about four testimonials on Red Clover Blended helping women in the same situation as me. I had tried it years ago, but not faithfully or for long enough. I decided to really give it a go! By May 2003, I had NO UNBEARABLE CRAMPS for the first time since I was 16, over half of my lifetime. I couldn’t believe it, but told all of my friends, co-workers and family members. Dr. Watkins, of course wanted me to print my testimonial in our Newsletter. I said I would after waiting one more month to be sure this was for real. Well, as you can read from my testimonial, it worked. Two beautiful months in a row of no cramps and looking forward to a life without those awful days! I am truly grateful to Reuben Schwartz for all of the testimonials his clients sent in which he had helped them with their Endometrioses. I am also grateful to Dr. Watkins and Pure Herbs, Ltd. for without this job I may never have known about Red Clover Blended and might have had more surgeries than I want to think about. Since February 2003, I have also taken Can-Sol capsules (one-two/day) Oregon Grape (one dropper full daily) and 1 cup, about 6 oz., green drink* in addition to the Red Clover Blended. These seem to be helping with my Fibromyalgia and I"m sure my Endometriosis too! So if the Red Clover Blended alone doesn’t work for you add these other products. I hope every women out there with Endometriosis will try this and not have to suffer any longer!" (Kim Clark, Sterling Hgts., MI)
*"Green drink is made by blending a handful of fresh edible green leaves (such as Romaine lettuce) in a pint of reliable spring water or distilled water. Blend for about one minute. Filter through a paper coffee filter and drink up. This is fresh ‘live" chlorophyll or ‘plant blood". It cleans your blood and gives you plenty of energy." (Dr. Eugene C. Watkins)
"My husband and I have been using the Sports Cream Plus for our aches and pains following mowing our lawn. We also use the Cream to repel mosquitoes, sand fleas, flies, brown and black ants and other bugs. We have an 85 pound Doberman Pincher who hangs around while we mow our lawn. We apply the Sports Cream on her to repel the bugs off of her. She doesn’t seem to mind. The cream even takes away the stinging, itchy feeling of the bug bite. Thank you Pure Herbs!" (Sue & Terry Schafsnitz, Bay City, MI)
"Dear friends at Pure Herbs, this past winter I introduced my friend Carole Ann to UR.-W. She had been experiencing frequent urination for many months with slight incontinence (four to five trips to the bathroom during the night, with urgency). After only one month of using UR.-W and drinking six to eight glasses of water and a wholesome nutritional program, she is seeing great improvement. She sleeps through the night and when she is out somewhere she doesn’t have to seek out the nearest restroom in a hurry. What a blessing!" (Sheila Kaplowitz, Hendersonville, NC)
"I am 60 years old. I would like to share with you my testimony on my life living with pancreatic and liver cancer and diabetes. In 1990, I had just purchased a small country store and shortly after found out I had pancreatic and liver cancer. The doctors operated on me and sewed me up to die, said I had six months or less. I was very depressed and very scared. My daughter in Indiana told me of a Baptist minister who knew a lot about herbs. I went to see him because I had nothing to lose. His name is Frank Miesse from Springfield-Xenia, OH. He knew I was in bad shape. He put me on a cleansing program using many different herbs. I didn"t even have room for food. I made all of my juices from fresh fruit and vegetables. There were times when I felt so sick I thought I would die any day, but I kept up on all the treatment he put me on. After about six months, Frank told me about a man in Casper WY, Ralph Schaus that had a good cancer herb that is like an herbal chemo. I started on that and other herbs and I started improving. It was a slow go, but I"m so thankful, because it has been 12 years and I"m still living and in fair health. My regular medical doctors said it was a bunch of hog wash (herbs), but could not believe it after I passed my six month mark. They said, ‘we may not believe in it, but go ahead with it, because you are improving and we offered you no hope." I made many trips to Ohio to see Mr. Frank Miesse. He is so happy with my results. He told me of an herbalist that he trained in Tomkinsville, KY (Reuben Schwartz). I went to see him and he had already heard from Frank about my life. I told him about the problems I was having with my thyroid, colon, digest system, kidneys and about my heart blockage. I also told him about other problems I was having. He suggested T.-W 1 tsp. 4x/day, Mega-Chel (Nature's Sunshine) to clean my arteries, Herbal Adjustment (mineral maintenance) for my arteries, Slippery Elm, Psyllium (bowel softener and lubricant), L-Salivarius for digestion (3 caps 3x/day), Maximizer for digestion (3 caps 3x/day), S.D.-R (stone dissolver), U.R.-W (urinary tract), B.B.-W (Brain and Balance), Vitamin E (immune system builder), H.T. Comb. (heart), body balance (Fibromyalgia), E-Tea (breast), Formula Three (1 tsp. 3x/day), N.-W (Pituitary gland), 5 HTP (Pituitary gland), Gotu Kola (Pituitary gland) and Wood Betony and Eyebright (for loss of eyesight in left eye). I have told so many people about these herbs. I personally know six people who have beat cancer with herbal treatment and faith. I wish everyone would try the natural herbs that God gave us to use. If only they knew the damage that ‘man-made" medicines or drugs do to their body. God bless and thanks for the PURE Herbs, because I know many are not pure!" --Jane Fishback, Edmonton, KY
"I am a 75 year old man who had colon cancer in 1994. The doctors operated and said they got all of it. I also had chemotherapy. I have chronic emphysema (COPD Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) and an enlarged heart. I"ve been on inhalers for about 20 years. I made a bad choice; I smoked for 60 years. I also worked at Johnson Motors and Die Cast Metals for 30 years. I was exposed to various chemicals. I have taken Puritan"s Pride vitamins for ten years. My friend Jane Fishback told me all about herbs. So when my lung specialist and other medical doctors told me there wasn"t anything else they could do for me, I decided to give herbal treatment a try. I went to see Reuben Schwartz and he told me I probably wouldn"t live long if I didn"t get help right away. He suggested L.-W, A.E.A.-B, and Vitamin O for my lungs, Maximizer for digestion (3 capsules 3x/day), COQ-10 and Blessed Thistle for oxygen, Herbal Adjustment mineral maintenance for my arteries and Mege-Chel to clean my arteries, H.T. Comb. for my heart and Chromium for my pancreas. To my surprise, after taking these supplements for only one month I felt somewhat better. After two months I was much more improved and my oxygen level was coming up. After taking the Herbal Adjustment and A.E.A.-B I can breath better. I"m so thankful for the herbal treatment. I am very pleased with my results and hope to continue getting well. I"ve recommended this herbal program to others. Thank you so much." --Harold Hensley, Edmonton, KY
"VANITY RULES! Just one 4 oz. Bottle of R.S.T.-C taken orally and applied externally to my face twice daily in the a.m and p.m. and I am no longer considering facial surgery. I am 63 years young. My skin had large pores and make-up would leak like blackheads. It made my wrinkles look awful. After just one bottle of the R.S.T.-C I noticed a difference immediately. I can only imagine what I will look like if I stay on the R.S.T.-C forever as a daily regimen! Look out Miss America!" --Suzanne Fraeyman, Warren, MI
"Recently, on a Friday, a customer came into my store with a toothache. Her jaw had swollen and was spreading down her neck and up to her ear. She was in considerable pain and had a slight fever. The local dentist was out of town until Monday. Scanning the shelves, my eye caught the E.T.I.-W formula. With its antibiotic properties of Echinacea and Myrrh and the special affinity White Oak Bark has for the gums, it was a perfect choice. I advised her to take a dropper full four times per day. I also suggested that she soak a cotton ball in warm water and E.T.I.-W and apply it directly to the tooth. She stopped in on Tuesday, all smiles, no pain and no swelling. She was amazed at the quick relief." --Susie Yelverton, Smithville, TN
"I have dark brown hair and I use henna to color it. The Henna fades rather fast, but I found by using a mix of Rosemary and Sage in a separate bottle at the rate of 50/50 and applying the mixture directly to my scalp with a dropper the Henna does not fade. It also maintains a rich color!" --Sheila Naidu, Kennesaw, GA
"I wanted to tell you I am so thankful to Our Heavenly Father Jehovah for having you all here on this earth to give us the natural healers that our bodies can and do accept for our aches and pains. Again thank you for all you have done. I will continue to use and recommend your products." --Argie, Alice, TX
"I am 65 years young, and I was diagnosed 10 years ago with degenerative disk disease (sounds too medical)! Scoliosis appeared when I was 13. Because of the 60 degree curve and compression of spinal disks, pain is almost always present in my lower spine. I recently started using Arnica Oil Blend and Sports Cream Plus. It has been a winning team for me. I have less pain now. I apply a few drops of the Arnica Oil Blend to the areas of discomfort, wait a few minutes, and then I massage a small amount of the Sports Cream Plus to my lower back. Once in awhile I will also apply a few drops of Indian Tobacco. I have noticed more flexibility and my lower spine is more relaxed. Best of all, the pain diminishes. Also great for arthritic knees and joints and also stiff neck and shoulders. Thank you Pure Herbs for these winning products." --Sheila Kaplowitz, Hendersonville, NC
"Skin cancer has been in my family for years. My aunt died from melanoma and I have had several moles removed from my face and back. When I found a mole starting to grow at my hairline, I decided to try Red Root and use it according to the directions in my Herbal Extract book. It took several months, but it went away. My husband had a mole growing on the inside curve of his ear which seemed to change color. We decided to use the Red Root on it. The mole darkened and seemed to shrivel and finally began to peel away form his ear. After what seemed only a few weeks, the mole was hanging on by just a tiny bit of skin. My husband pulled it off, the mole was black and much smaller than the original mole had been! This was several months ago, and the skin is still clear. My only regret is that we didn"t take it to be checked for cancer." --Betty Lynch, Hempstead, TX
"A lady came to me because of an irregular heart beat. Her doctors had told her that scar tissue on the heart was causing the irregular heart beat. I recommended RST-C (Repair Scar Tissue). After several months she returned with the following report, ‘My doctors can"t explain why, but they cannot find any scar tissue and my heart beat is now normal."" --Lon Slider, Covington, IN
"I had a sharp stabbing pain in my ear so I took Olive Leaf and Vitamin C every hour. I also put Garlic and Mullein Oil and Olive Leaf on a piece of cotton ball and put it in my ear. . . .did a heavy dose at bedtime, plus rubbed the Garlic and Mullein Oil all around my ear and the side of my face. The next morning the terrible pain was gone. I was so impressed!" --Cheryl Lawson, Derby, VT
"The other day when I was shaving I nicked my face. I decided to put our Sports Cream Plus on the cut. It burned a bit, but in the end it helped the wound heal faster than normal and my skin felt smoother. I decided to try the Sports Cream Plus on my entire face as an after shave. The skin on my face now feels smooth and I feel more circulation to the skin!" --Dr. Eugene C. Watkins, Sterling Hgts., MI
"My daughter and son-in-law were so sick with the flu that they called my husband and me at 10:30 p.m. to drive the half hour to their house to take them to the hospital even though they know we both work and were already in bed. They felt awful; loose bowels, dizziness and they couldn"t even keep fluids down. We were exposed that night and I took off the next day to go stay with them to take care of my four month old grandson. My husband and I took one Tablespoon of C.C.E.-W once a day for one week. Praise the Lord and Pure Herbs neither one of us got even a touch of the flu." --M. C., Beech Grove, IN
"The following is a testimonial regarding my almost eight week old newborn. At the time my newborn was eight weeks old, she was still jaundiced (slightly still in the eyes), and was demonstrating some mild reflux symptoms, requiring us to keep her in an infant seat to sleep. She also had a thick white-coated tongue. Even as a Distributor, I was too exhausted to research what Pure Herbs product/s to use. I finally phoned my upline Caletta Oakley who read a list of herbs for each of these problems. Culvers Root (Black Root) was common to all three problems! I immediately ordered a bottle, and after simply rubbing the extract on the bottom of her feet and on her tummy area at diaper changes, we noticed her white tongue and jaundice all clear within two weeks! Just proof again that God intended . . . ‘the leaves for healing Ez47:12"".--Judy Orsborn, Broomfield, CO
"I was suffering with a very bad sore throat. I couldn"t even swallow! I decided to try Bee Propolis which is a natural antibiotic. I took about 80 drops. WOW, within an hour my throat was better. I was able to swallow and the unbearable pain was gone." --Betsy Turnquist, Warren, MI
"My daughter, Shannon, miscarried a baby in 2001 at 20 weeks gestation. She became pregnant again a few month later and began to have slight cramping (contractions) almost every 30 minutes at about 10 weeks. Her OB/GYN advised her to stay on complete bed rest, but the contractions continued anyway and he predicted she would miscarry again. I prayed with all my heart that I would find a way to help my daughter. Then, after researching through my HRG (Herbal Research Group) Volumes, I called Pure Herbs and asked for the Crampbark and False Unicorn formula to be overnighted to me. I began my daughter on the formula and she felt her contractions subside within 20 minutes of taking it. She took the Crampbark and False Unicorn 40 drops every four to six hours and it would control the irritability of the uterus and calm the cramps. She never had to set a clock to remember to take it because the cramps would come back about the time the formula was due to be taken. We added Red Raspberry Leaf 40 drops twice a day and P.N.-W 40 drops twice a day also. Each week, we thanked God as we made a new milestone in the pregnancy. She was able to make it to full-term, thanks to our Good Lord, and to Pure Herbs for providing the formulas that saved my grandbaby's life. Joseph was born on October 29th, 2002, at 38 weeks gestation, weighting 6 lbs. 11oz., healthy and happy! By the way, my daughter's labor was very light and lasted just four hours, thanks to L.6W the last month and Blue Cohosh for the last two weeks. She took the Blue Cohosh during her labor and afterwards. She delivered without any type of anesthesia or pain medicine. She had no episiotomy either. Two hours after delivering the baby, she commented that she felt as if she hadn't even had a baby. Shannon is a size zero or two. She handled this delivery with confidence and calmness. Our family has so much to be thankful for….Joseph is now 2 months old, breastfeeding well and weighting about 12 pounds!….Shannon has now switched to several other Pure Herbs formulas to ensure a good supply of breast milk (Blessed Thistle) and plenty of nutrition and stamina herbs (Three Bees, A.C.S., Rice Bran, Bilberry and others)….And we are fortunate to be associated with a company named Pure Herbs that allows itself to be a true instrument of God, reaching out to those who need His healing herbs. Thank you, Dr. Watkins for your personal commitment to helping others and thanks to all of you that help make Pure Herbs possible….thank you, Bella Vladimirsky, for introducing me to this awesome company….words seem so inadequate to express my gratitude to all of you. May God bless and protect you today and always!" --Patti Felici, McAllen, TX"
"I am happy to say Solomon Wickey"s Can-sol capsules really worked for my candida (yeast infection). I had a bad dose of it under my breasts. It was extremely itchy and it would bleed and crack open. It was very painful. When I received the pamphlet on the Can-sol capsules, I decided to give them a try. I"m happy to report that the candida is almost completely gone. What I used was Can-sol capsules six twice per day along with three Acidophilus each time the Can-sol was taken. It works! Thank you Solomon and the good Lord that gives him the wisdom to know what to put together that works!" --S. M.Due West, S.C.
"After trying to have a child for two years with one miscarriage, my husband and I went to visit Mr. Rueben Schwartz, an iridologist located near Tompkinsville, KY. He suggested it could be endometriosis and that I might try Red Clover Blend. He told me if taken faithfully we would have a better chance at having children. Less than two years later we were blessed with a beautiful son. We are convinced that without Red Clover Blend this would never have been possible. After a recent visit back to Mr. Schwartz, I am again taking Red Clover Blend at his suggestion. Thank you for such a wonderful product." --Donna Hegan, Bowling Green, KY
"Oh happy day the day dry spots are going away! I have been using Herbal Adjustment for dry spots that have been appearing on my body, and they are just about gone. I had read in one of Dr. A. B. Howard's books that Herbal Adjustment would destroy liver spots so I decided to try it on dry spots and they are just about gone. It has taken a long time, but I was persistent in doing so. Dr. Howard had stated that it takes patience for things like this to disappear. I am also continuing to use the Peppermint Oil for the allergies and headaches that I get from odors. Whenever I go somewhere I have an opportunity to give a kleenex that has the oil on it. People are shocked when they smell it and it helps them so quickly. It has been truly a blessing to be a part of this company and to be able to help people to get well without drugs. Thank you Dr. Watkins and staff." --Kathleen Marasco Elgin, S.C.
"I am writing to say THANK YOU! I recently experienced left chest pain, especially upon movement. At first I thought it could be a heart attack or severe indigestion. After taking Herbal Adjustment and a digest aide without relief I realized that my problem was muscle related. Then I applied Arnica Oil Blend to my left chest area. It was amazing how quickly the pain was relieved! That day the pain was gone. Your products work! I use them on my family with great results. Thanks again!" --Kim Preston, Greenfield, OH
"I have had osteoarthritis for 31 years. I have taken everything natural for arthritis, but nothing has touched the pain until recently. I heard about Pure Herbs A.R.T.-C by Pat Castro. Within about 14 days I felt 98% better from taking the A.R.T.-C. Because of the severity of my arthritis, I take 40 drops of A.R.T.-C and Research Formula 4x/day. I also no longer suffer with leg cramps at night. Ever so grateful!" --Diane Baird, Morganfield, KY
"After reading the testimonials regarding RST-C from Peggy Ames and Lon and Sherry Slider in the Dec 2001/Jan 2002 newsletter, I wanted to give RST-C a try! I had been experiencing discomfort in the lower bowel and pelvic area due to prior C-sections as well as scar tissue and a prolapsed bowel from an amoebae infection. My 15 year old daughter was also still having pain from her 1997 appendectomy. We began by applying RST-C topically as well as taking 40 drops internally. My daughter also took 40 drops of Mayapple three times per day. Within a week, my daughter's pain was gone and within two weeks, I passed a mass of tissue through the bowel and was also pain free! One month later I severely burned my arm french pressing coffee so I applied RST-C to the burn area, soaked in gauze, and changed the dressing twice a day. Now there is no scar or sign of anything! My arm completely healed. Because of these amazing results, I decided to add 40 drops of RST-C to my daily facial wash, as well as my face and body lotion. After about two months what a difference it made in my complexion! Scars and wrinkle lines are disappearing and my face has a healthy glow. And no blemishes! At least a dozen people at church have started asking me what I'm doing. They all say I am looking much younger! I also added 40 drops of RST-C to my daughter's facial wash and astringent and her blemishes are disappearing too! As a teenager, you can imagine how thrilled she is! Thanks, Pure Herbs!" --Roxanne Rodriguez, McAllen, TX
"I had to contact you folks and thank you. My grandmother was the center of our very large family and one of the things she swore by was Gold Thread! To us, it was the thing to use for mouth sores, etc. But, when Grandma died in 1984, the secret of where to get Gold Thread was lost and I never thought I'd see it again. I've seen references to it on different herb web sites, but I've never found anyone who actually sold it, so when I found your site and saw that you had it for sale it was actually a very poignant experience for me (as strange as that may sound!). So, I just wanted to thank you. My order has been placed and I can't wait for my little package to arrive. In a way it seems a little silly, but that little package will mean a great deal to me!""I have arthritis in my shoulders and my one hip. I could not lift my one arm first thing in the morning. In the beginning of December 2002 I started taking Devil's Claw. In a little over three weeks when I wake up in the morning I no longer have the aches and pains I used to have. My knees are also feeling better. I can now stoop down and get up with no problem thanks to Devil's Claw. I take two droppers full 2x/day." --Barbara Hastey
"I have had a terrible problem with acid-reflux for several years. My chiropractor says I have a hiatal hernia. About every two to three months she (my chiropractor) has had to pull the hernia down. When she does this procedure it hurts like crazy, but the end result is I don't have the reflux problem for a month or two. Last year my chiropractor was away for three weeks and I was suffering terribly. I couldn't even sleep well at night because of the reflux. So I pulled out all of my herb books and researched like crazy to find something that could possibly help my situation. What I found was by using Papaya Mints and Formula Twelve 40-80 drops before meals I don't suffer from the reflux problem. It is truly amazing! I wish I would have found this solution years ago. Since using these two herbs together, I have not had to have my chiropractor pull the hernia down and endure that pain. I'm very grateful and fortunate to have the herbs at my fingertips.""I am 65 years old and have had kidney stones for 30 years. I have had stones so large that I could not pass them so doctors had to use laser treatment to burst the stones in order for me to be able to pass them. I have had this treatment twice. The stones came back again. I decided to seek other alternatives. Someone told me about a man named Rueben Schwartz who is a natural practitioner. I decided to go see him. He told me about a product called S.D.-R. I decided to give it a try. I began taking the S.D.-R and within one and a half weeks I began to pass small stones (nine in all that I was aware of). These passed without any pain at all. I do not intend to ever be without a bottle of S.D.-R in case of problems. Thank God for Rueben and Pure Herbs and S.D.-R." --Randall Goodman, Lafayette, TN
Note from Dr. Watkins: If you take A.C.S. (All Cell Salts) along with the S.D.-R it will help balance out the minerals in the body, which is extremely important to do.
"A few months ago I gave a bottle of D.A.N.-C to my daughter in New Jersey. She, like many others in the metropolitan New York area, has felt much more anxiety and tension than usual, since 9-11. It was hard for her to get up and go into work every morning and not focus on the negativity which surrounded her. Since taking the D.A.N.-C, she is not as uptight over the things that have happened and she feels more relaxed and more calm. Also, her anxiety and feelings of depression have lessened. She now has a sense of well-being that all will be ok. It also seems to strengthen the nervous system. In order for the D.A.N.-C to be effective you need to take it on a daily basis." --Sheila Kaplowitz, Hendersonville, NC
"In 1990 my wife was diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver by biopsy. With medicines given by doctors she held her own until 2000, at which time she started to have other multiple problems which placed her on the transplant list for a liver. After a year and a half on the transplant list she was further diagnosed with Primary Pulmonary Hypertension. After numerous stays in the hospital, additional medicines and being put on oxygen full time, the doctors determined she wasn't strong enough to go through a liver/lung transplant and took her off the transplant listing. The last time in the hospital was July 2002 and when I brought her home she was in an essentially comatose state, sleeping all the time and not able to move around by herself. The doctors called and said she had only 'weeks to 2 months left'. As this was totally unexceptable, we decided to go another route. On August 3rd, 2002 we went to an Iridologist and went on an herbal program. After one week she could breathe and move around by herself. It is now October 12th, 2002 and we are still holding in there. We are still a long way from being 'cured', if possible, but the outlook is sure better than the doctors gave us. A listing of Pure Herbs products used: A.E.A.-B, L.-W, HT. Comb., Herbal Adjustment, P.C.-C, Red Clover Blended, Milk Thistle plus other enzyme formulas and minerals. Note: Blood tests are still showing high readings, but they are starting to come down some. Thank God, Pure Herbs and all the people that have helped us with prayers." --Don Farris, Buffalo, KY
"This past spring I was having trouble breathing. I went to the Herb House to see if they would help me. I started taking Thyme. In only a few days my breathing was strong and I no longer felt like I was smothering. It was so amazing! Thanks so much. If any one should have trouble breathing I would highly recommend Thyme. I go to the Herb House in Covington, IN and the people there are so helpful and nice." --JeanAnne Montague, Perrysville, IN
"I have been taking R. & S.-W for my nerves and it works better than anything I've ever taken. You all really know what you are doing! Keep up the good work!" --Kevin McKinney
"This testimonial is for the products, Arnica Oil Blend and R.S.T.-C (Repair Scar Tissue). My husband had a hernia repair last October. It was bad enough that the doctor had to put a mesh in place. My husband continued for two months with severe pain and severe constipation. His doctor said be patient, a man of his age, 66, will take quite a while to heal and sent him home. I suspected he had adhesions and had him see our family doctor. The scan confirmed a terrible amount of adhesions. The doctor told us to use whatever means naturally to help, because more surgery would cause more problems. I researched Pure Herbs and made a poultice of Arnica Oil Blend and R.S.T.-C externally daily. Internally he took R.S.T.-C 3x/day. Within one week he began to feel better. Within six weeks the scar tissue was gone along with the pain and no more constipation. Thank you Pure Herbs." --Janice McComb, Herb Specialist, Danville, IN
"We received a newsletter from Richard Dicks stating that Purple Loosestrife eye washes got rid of cataracts. My husband decided to try it. He had received word from eye doctors last year that his one eye which has had a cataract in it, but not growing, was now starting to grow and the other eye was just starting with a cataract. He decided to do one eye at a time one drop four times per day. It does sting for a few minutes. He did each eye for 10 days. The eye doctor just recently checked his eyes and behold - no cataracts! Thanks so much!" P.S. "This does sting for a few seconds." -- John & Noel Nye, Ramsey, NJ
"Smidge, Deloris Sipes grand dog took L.6W (last six weeks) the last week of her pregnancy and safely and easily delivered on July 31, 2002. She continued to take L.6W until her owner determined that the milk production was too much. The puppies are little butter balls and Smidge is a perfect mother. Thanks for all you do!" --Deloris Sipes, Midland, TX
"Since childhood, my two front teeth overlapped due to crowding. When in my mid thirties it became fashionable for mature adults to wear braces and so I did, six months later the braces came off. The teeth were straight, but I was expected to wear a retainer which felt uncomfortable to me so I tossed it aside. Shortly after, the teeth overlapped again so I started using A.C.S. and within a year my teeth were straight again. I use A.C.S. to this day. At first I used 40 drops three times daily and now I use 40 drops twice daily. An extra bonus is that my jaw cracking is gone. Thank you Pure Herbs for your wonderful formulas." --Simone Gaiarin, Windsor, Ontario, Canada
"When we returned home from our vacation we found our 3 year old Silky Terrier on the brink of death. Evidently he had been having diarrhea and had been throwing up all day. He was so severely dehydrated that he was unable to walk and was listless and almost unconscious. My daughter was hysterical! She wanted us to take Bailey to the vet, but I knew he was near death, so we decided to use our herb arsenal instead. Since I didn't know what was causing the dog's illness (infection, poisoning or possibly a flea or tick bite reaction), I just grabbed all the poison antidote and antibiotic herbs, as well as A.C.S. and Research Formula, which would help with the dehydration factor. I began at 10 p.m. administering A.C.S., Research Formula, Black Cohosh, Virginia Snake Root, IM.S.-W, A.M.F.-W, and W.-W, all by a small dropper intermittently with droppers of water, and kept this going until almost 2 a.m. (four hours). Bailey threw up the herbs twice during this process, but by 2 a.m., he was able to get up and walk to where his dry food and water had remained untouched during the day, and began to drink water on his own and also began to eat! I stayed watching him about 30 minutes after that and felt it was safe to go to sleep. In the morning, we had a brand new puppy! Bailey was back to normal, as if nothing had ever happened! I am convinced that if we had taken Bailey to the vet, the dog would probably have died. My daughter wants to become a vet someday and I hope she will, after seeing the amazing results and use herbs whenever possible to treat her animals. Thank you Pure Herbs!" --Roxanne Rodriguez, McAllen, TX
"Additional uses for Virginia Snake Root: I have a client who has dealt with both environmental and food allergies/sensitivities for many years. This wonderful woman, coming from a Jamaican background, is delightfully unaffected by the sensationalistic media which aims to frighten people away from herbs. After she had made marked improvements with de-toxification, she still had some problems with certain foods and environmental symptoms. After supplying her with Virginia Snake Root to have on hand in case one of her smaller children should need an anti-poison remedy for mosquito bites or accidental ingestion of toxic materials; she surmised (I wish I had thought of this) that the body regards any material that is either undigested or an overload to a sensitive or toxic body, as poison…..that Virginia Snake Root may be helpful to neutralize the reaction in your body. Now she carries it with her when out to dinner, for instance, so that she can immediately neutralize the percepted poisons and avoid symptoms. So please keep Virginia Snake Root in your herb cabinet for those times when allergies prevail. The herb can be taken both internally and applied topically for whatever the situation demands." --Dr. Gael Struck-Riverz, N.D., Hartland, WI
"Sports Cream Plus is the best cream I have used for my aches and pains, especially my neck, which has suffered four whiplashes. I find It also works really well on all other joints and muscles that may be painful. Whatever the pain of the day is, Sports Cream Plus will make it feel so much better. I love the smell of it too! I use it after I shower and at night before I go to bed. Try it, you'll like it!" --Marcella Angelou, Basking Ridge, NJ
"Repeatedly I had heard that Oil of Cajeput was helpful with the flu and colds, yet I'd not tried using it. After nearly four months of listening to my 13 year old daughter complain about stuffy sinuses and sinus headaches from a cold in December of 2001, I decided to try the Cajeput. To my amazement her sinuses opened up in under a week and three of us in the family who were suffering colds, rid ourselves in a few days by sniffing the Oil. Also, my son got through a nasty flu with very sticky mucus in the nose and chest by using the Oil of Cajeput. Lastly, my third child who'd had a boil since November on her thigh, used the Oil on it and it is now almost gone. I respect this Oil and its many uses. Thank you!" --The Twill family, Summit, NJ
"I want to thank Edna Ford for starting me on A.E.A.-B extract for my asthma. Before taking it I would get bronchitis two or three times a year. Since taking the A.E.A.-B I haven't had bronchitis for over a year. I will continue to take this product in hopes of never getting bronchitis ever again." --E. M. L., Riverview, FL
"My feet, around my heels, developed this thick skin that appeared to be out of control. Once it was soaked you could begin to remove it, but it was spreading. I used tea tree oil and kept after it and thought I'd won the battle. However, it came back and I finally made an appointment with the Podiatrist who was stumped. Since my visit wasn't until the following week I decided to try and use Olive Leaf extract and it was improving by leaps and bounds. When I went to see my Podiatrist I explained what I did. I left information on Olive Leaf extract and cancelled my follow up visit. Thank you, Olive Leaf extract!" --Robert Martin, Collingswood, NJ
"I have type 1 diabetes and have developed moderate to severe neuropathy (nerve-suffering) of the right leg and both feet, and also the stomach and chest nerves. Most days my feet burned uncomfortably by the end of the day, and my legs felt numb and stressed. Also, I used to get sensations of my heartbeat racing, if my blood sugars dropped too low, or were too high, but lately the neuropathy of those nerves have given no warning of this. I told a friend about these problems and she suggested I try N.P.-T. I used the N.P.-T externally on my legs, feet and low back to see if I could get some relief. After applying the combination for two days, morning and evening, I felt such blessed relief that it was almost unimaginable to me that the herbs could supply so much relief. I decided to try applying this combination to my stomach and am pleased with the results. My enormous gratitude to Pure Herbs products and my good friend, Bonnie Miller!" --Patricia Ross, Shelby Twp, MI
"A few months ago I visited my Primary Care Physician for a toenail fungus. I had had the same toenail removed twice before by other physicians over the past five years and each time after growing back, the fungus returned. He asked me what I wanted to do. When I told him I wanted to get rid of the fungus and keep the nail, he suggested a polish, told me I would have to use at least four bottles to get rid of it and it would take approximately two months. I went to pick up the prescription and it was $165.00 per bottle! When I realized my insurance would not cover it I called my physician. He told me he would not prescribe anything else because it could cause liver damage. I had a bottle of Oil of Cajeput which I had purchased for a candida protocol. I called my CNHP (Certified Natural Health Professional) and she told me to use the Oil of Cajeput along with some other things. My husband told me to just try the Oil of Cajeput by itself, since I already had a bottle. In the past the fungus got closer to the base of the nail as the nail grew out. After using the Oil of Cajeput the nail grew, but as the nail grew out so did the fungus." --L. O., Acworth, GA
"Ever since 1982 I have had severe allergies. Nothing the doctors have prescribed has helped. My aunt told me to go see Reuben Schwartz. I saw him in May 2002 and he told me to try S.I.A.-R (Sinus and Allergy - Reuben Schwartz). Since I have been on this product I haven't had a problem with allergies. My first spring without burning eyes, stuffy nose and sneezing. I can breath!!! Thank you so much!!! I am now singing the praises about Reuben Schwartz and Pure Herbs, Ltd." --John Turner, Louisville, KY "I purchased a bottle of Ol' Number 11 for myself, I have lower back problems and had tried DSK which didn't much help me, so I was told to try Ol' Number 11. The DSK does help my husband, he swears by it! Anyways, the Ol' Number 11 didn't seem to help me, but here is my testimony: Our family dog, Nugget, who was 15 years old at the time I used the Ol' Number 11, was trying to jump on the couch and her back legs were not strong enough and she fell back. I thought she broke her legs. I took her to the vet and she said she didn't break anything, just might have hyperextended them or sprained them pretty bad. Well, with her being 15 at the time I thought we would have to put her to sleep, but I wasn't going to give up! I decided to try the Ol' Number 11 on her one leg and also to pray a lot for her. By the third day she was able to walk on the one leg. Praise the Lord!!! The next day I started applying the Ol' Number 11 to both of her hind legs. After a couple of days she was walking stronger than ever. Thanks for distributing a product that a lot of people know works." --Cheryl McGowen, Urbana, OH
"After years of suffering with ankle pain from sports injuries, I was scheduled for ankle fusion surgery. Since there were no successful results from former individuals who had this surgery done, I decided to cancel the procedure. I found out about an athletic injury therapist, Rawle Morris in Beaverton, Oregon (Back in Motion). Rawle inspected my ankles and found them to be the worst ankles he'd ever seen. He began therapy on them and had me rub on Big Five and Arnica. He also told me I could take C.C.E.-W, CA.-W, Capsicum, A.C.S. and Grape Seed for a maintenance program. I did as he advised and after six months much of the pain is gone from my more painful ankle (the right one). We are now working on my left ankle which is realigning and causing pain. I know this is a somewhat long process, but I know with time I will be able to walk again without excruciating pain. Rawle Morris is a fantastic friend and therapist and Pure Herbs are also my friends!" --Merlin Ludwig, Portland, OR
"A friend of mine has been trying to get pregnant for over two years. Her gynecologist diagnosed a thyroid problem and Endometriosis, but never prescribed medication to correct these problems, thank goodness! After seeing Reuben Schwartz and taking T.-W and Red Clover Blended for six months, not only did her condition improve she is now two months pregnant. Also, my 13 year old daughter went to Reuben with Endometriosis in October of 2001. She had been complaining of abdominal pain frequently. After several months of the Red Clover Blended she is now pain free. I am so thankful we caught this early. Reuben Schwartz and Pure Herbs are truly gifts from God." --Bobbi Cooper, Bowling Green, KY
"I am so thankful and grateful to God and Joan Thompson for the custom blend called E.H.2-T which is the only product I have found to help with depression. I was not able to use the E.H.-T because it contains St. Johns Wort whereas the E.H.2-T does not. I have type O blood and cannot tolerate St. Johns Wort. Also, the E.H.2-T contains an herb called Wolfberry Root which helps to lower my blood pressure and sugar levels. This blend has been a blessing to me for the above reasons and because I do not have to take prescription medication for depression. I don't know what I would do with out it. Thanks so much!" Lynn Schamens, Becker, MN
"My name is Juliann. I want to thank you for your products! Last year my nine year old daughter was bitten by a brown recluse spider in the arm. I had never heard about brown recluses before. Well, my homework only began . . . I took my daughter to the emergency room after one of my friends said the bug bite was by a brown recluse. I got on the internet to look up information about brown recluses. It was a scary ordeal. The outcome looked grim. At the hospital the doctor said there was nothing they could do but put steroid cream on her arm and give her antibiotics then wait it out to see how much damage the bite would make. Then the next step would be to give my daughter skin graphs to repair the damage. Luckily, I listened to my own inner guide and called a macrobiotic counselor and friend. By this time the bite had ulcerated to the size of a dime, with a hole, dark red in color. My friend suggested aloe vera gel and instantly the hole started to turn white. The aloe vera cooled the wound. I wasn't satisfied enough with that so the next day . . . by the guidance from God, I was lead to a local health store which is no longer in business. There I was turned on to your product P.A.-K and another product called green clay which is from another company. I made the mixture and applied it to my daughters wound. It pulled the infection out and later I healed the surface of the skin with an aloe vera, colloidal silver and tea tree mixture. If not for your product, I feel my daughter would have gone through a tremendous ordeal at the hospital and with surgery that would have left scars on her body and emotional trauma for life. A few days later I took her to Vanderbilt for them to check the wound just to be sure it was healing. The doctor there told me whatever I was doing to just keep it up and that the wound was healing and there was nothing else they could do to help it along. Sooooo, after a long story, A BIG THANK YOU!!!!" --Juliann Gates, Hendersonville, TN
"During 1999, my pregnant daughter complained of side effects of iron tablets prescribed by her doctor. I encouraged her to try HI.I-W. She started with 20 drops and increased to 30 drops per day. Within three days she was calling and telling me how much energy she had and how much better she was feeling. Needless to say, she continued throughout her pregnancy and delivered a strong, healthy, millennium baby boy. I also had a friend try a bottle of HI.I.-W because she complained of low energy. She was amazed at how much better she felt after several days. She uses 40 drops three times per day following menstruation." --Ellen Sumner, Harrisonburg, VA
"My name is Rick Louden, Edna Ford's son. I'm the co-creator of the formulas you manufacture for us. (F. & F. -F, IS.-F, & HR.-F) My mom said I should write and tell you about our use of the F. & F.-F, so here it is. My wife Paula has I.H.S.S. heart (Idiopathic Hypertrophic Sub-Aortic Stenosis). She is the longest lived survivor of this condition. We give F.& F.-F a lot of the credit for this as she has to go into I.C.U. at the least bit of a fever. With her heart condition, the flu can be deadly. Thanks to taking the F. & F. -F at the first sign of illness, she hasn't been in the hospital (for illness) for many years. Also, a man I knew at work contracted genital herpes (this was years before we submitted the formulas to Pure Herbs). He asked if there was anything I knew of that could help with the horrible outbreaks. An Amish herbalist friend (Solomon Wickey) had told us that our F. & F.-F formula (by his testing) should kill just about any virus it was used on. So, I did a viral purge on my friend and gave him 120 drops to take 10 drops at a time in 8oz. of water over a period of 24 to 48 hours. I told him not to drink anything else in that time. Shortly after that he left the shop and moved South. Last year he came back to work here. The first thing he did when he saw me was give me a big hug! He told me he hadn't had a single reoccurrence since the day I gave him the F. & F.-F. Furthermore, while in New Orleans, he had blood tests run and he tested negative for the herpes virus. We tried the same regimen for the lady he contracted the herpes virus from. She has not had an outbreak since! If I contracted an 'incurable' virus, I'd take the F. & F.-F and do a virus purge as well. Then in a few weeks I'd get retested just to be sure it had worked. I've had many other testimonials given to me of people with all kinds of different viruses that were helped using F. & F.-F." --Richard Louden, Connersville, IN
"In May of 1999, I was diagnosed with a periodontal pocket in my lower jaw tooth. I started using Pure Herbs Myrrh in my dental irrigation system, and within four months my dental hygienist noticed an improvement. I have continued using the Myrrh once a night since that time. In July 2001, I tried a bottle of T.G.&P.-W. I used this instead of the Myrrh (40 drops in the irrigation system). Upon an October 10th dental appointment, I was surprised to learn there had been more gum improvement. This was in spite of the fact that I had been under a tremendous amount of stress the past several months. My dental hygienist was so impressed that she requested information on this Pure Herbs product. To date, I am continuing with the T.G.&P.-W and occasionally using the straight Myrrh instead." --Ellen Sumner, Harrisonburg, VA
"The end of last year was a very sad time for me and my family. My father passed away. I would like, though, to share a blessing and that is that my father did not suffer. He also knew who he was, who we were, where he was and he was virtually pain free. The only prescriptions he had from the medical doctor during his last eight months were for his thyroid. He had been on 80 grams of Lasix a day when we brought him home from the nursing home. We used UR.-W, Pleurisy Root, and Milk Thistle internally to keep his legs and ankles from swelling and to get him functioning free of the Lasix. We used T.L.-C, E.T.I.-W (my husband rubbed it on and around my fathers neck and ears) to keep his upper respiratory and chest free of mucus and the wheezing caused from my fathers congestive heart condition. To heal his bed sores, we applied Arnica Oil Blend and Olive Leaf. All of the medical and health care people who visited my father regularly commented on how healthy he looked and how good his color was! When my father passed, he passed without violence, anguish or pain. He just went to sleep. What better blessing is there?" --The Courter's, Valley View, TX
"I have heavy bleeding during my menstrual cycle and am also menopausal. My medical doctor put me on Ibuprofen 400 mg. one or two tablets by mouth three times a day. While they do stop the heavy bleeding, I feared what else this medication might be doing to me. I did not want any side effects from the Ibuprofen so I started using the herb Shepherds Purse which stopped the bleeding. When my menstrual cycle has gone for four days, I take the Shepherds Purse and the bleeding stops. Before I was having a heavy period for seven to nine days. I also take Greasewood daily and it also help me with my female problems." --A.F., Detroit, MI
"After being diagnosed with a severe case of osteoarthritis in my right hip during March of 2000, I knew I would have to be pro-active in dealing with this serious situation. Being a believer in alternative methods, I tried Glucosamine, Chondroitin, MSM, Sam-e, and vitamin and mineral supplementation. In March of 2001, I added CA.-W 80 drops three times per day. After several months I dropped back to 40 drops three times per day. Beginning in March of 2001, I had complemented my treatment plan with visits to an osteopathic physician. These visits helped with range of motion and some pain reduction. In April of 2001, I added 40 drops of Irish Moss three times per day, after meals. After six to eight weeks, I noticed improvement in the pain level in my hip. No other treatments had been used during that time. Most of my pain reduction, I noticed, came after taking the Irish Moss. To date, I have been able to prevent a total hip replacement." --Ellen Sumner, Harrisonburg, VA
"I had been going to a medical doctor and he had me taking eight different drugs and told me I had a bad heart. I went to Nashville, Tennessee to St. Thomas Hospital two times to see about it, but they didn't help because they said I had a blood clot in my heart. I came back home and went to see Reuben Schwartz and he told me it was my thyroid and that I also had something wrong with my heart. He started me on the following herbs: H.T. Comb., Herbal Adjustment, Sanicle, Target TSII, O.C.-M, A.C.S, and Sassafras. I started feeling better within two weeks. I have been back since, to see Reuben and he says I am doing fine. I feel great! If it weren't for Reuben I don't think I would be alive today. I believe with the proper usage of herbs they can be better in some cases than prescribed medication as the herbs are natural. They were in my case." --Thelma Bacon, Tompkinsville, KY
"I have had herpes (on my ear lobe, of all places) for about 20 years. For about a year now, I have had one flare-up after another with that constant itchy, tingly feeling in between. The Zovirax that the doctor gave me didn't help, Lysine didn't help and Lemon Balm didn't help. I heard about IVY-D and ordered some immediately! I took three droppers full internally and I applied a couple of drops on my skin (at the ear). The next day that feeling was gone! I continued to take it internally and rub it on externally until the 1 oz. bottle was gone. I haven't had herpes since. I just can't believe how fast it worked! I keep a bottle handy in case I feel a flare-up coming on, but so far I haven't needed it! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!" --K.L, Irmo, SC
"Milk Thistle - the liver's best friend! This is the best protector and detoxifier of the liver. The major constituent is silymarin , which encourages the liver to produce its own type of toxic avengers. I personally use it every day as a preventative in my own personal program. I want my liver to function as optimal as possible." --Marcella Angelou, Basking Ridge, NJ
"Geneva Gile suggested that I write you about my successful use of Purple Loosestrife to remove a cataract in my right eye. In February of 1999, my right eye was bothering me when reading. My medical doctor said it wouldn't hurt my eye to read with the glasses I had. When I returned home I went directly to see Geneva and she sold me a bottle of Purple Loosestrife. After about 3 days I picked this jelly like mass from the corner of my eye. I have been fine ever since. I read with my right eye and see distance with my left eye." --A. H.
"I have been taking Pure Herbs for a long time. In 1999 my back and buttocks became so painful, I could barely get up and down. I went to a chiropractor, but his help was only temporary. By chance I started taking Red Clover Blend and Super Bugs to keep the flu away. After taking them both for about a month, 40 drops 3x/day, I passed a mass of tissue through the bowels and I haven't had anymore low back pain since. Also, I have stayed on both these supplements and I haven't had the flu. I am so thankful that they have helped me. Thank you for these fine products!" --C. J., Bloomington, IN
"For all of you ladies who are going through 'the change,' I have found that S.M.& W-S (Stimulant for men & women -Solomon Wickey) is WONDERFUL!!! It really helps out with the 'hot flashes' and it is very soothing. For myself, I use four droppers three times a day. I hope others will try this awesome product and have as much success as I have had in relieving 'hot flashes'. As we women know, going through 'the change' is a real challenge, but with Doc and his herbs it has truly made a difference. Thank you Doc and the girls for everything!" --L. Zirger, Lakewood, CO
"After wheezing for 15 years, it was suggested by a Pure Herbs expert that I use Astragalus for my immune system. So I listened and I'm happy to say I've not used my inhalers (which I used to help me breath after I started wheezing) in about 8 months. I am able to clean my house, walk in the fertilizer dept at K Mart, play with my cat and NO WHEEZING." --Chris Belter, Ormond Beach, FL
"I am only 53 and for several years when I got out of bed I used to walk like I was 90 years old, all crunched over taking only baby steps at first. Now I get out of bed and I feel like I'm 20 again. I attribute this to all of the herbs I have been taking for a couple of years now, especially the A.C.S. I take A.C.S. (for mineral supplementation), Astragalus (to build my immune system), Yokum (for hot flashes) which works unbelievably well, M.G.-W (for energy and to nourish the glands), Herbal Adjustment (for circulation), and Vita-Lixir (for vitamin supplementation). I have recently added to my daily regime: N.-W (for my nerves), Milk Thistle (for my liver), B.C.-W (to cleanse my blood), Vitamin A & D (for my skin and eyes), and Vitamin E (as an antioxidant). For anyone wondering how I take all of these herbs at a time here is what I do: I use small containers called smidgets (from Tupperware) you could also use their midgets (which are normally used for salad dressing or to hold cake decorations), or you could use film containers. Basically, anything small enough to store easily and with a lid. What I do is every Sunday I line up my smidgets and fill them with my mixture of herbs. I make enough to take twice daily for one or two weeks. This helps me to remember to take my herbs regularly and saves me time when in a hurry, like most everyone is. I usually add a bit of juice to my container of herbs when I go to take them and then down the hatch they go! Thank you Pure Herbs you have improved my health." --Kathy Fallon, Ocean Isle Beach, NC
"My granddaughter Melissa when she was 12 was diagnosed by the hospital with mono. She couldn't swallow and her spleen was so swollen the doctor said she would have to start school late and would not be able to play any sports that year due to the danger of her getting hit in the spleen causing a hemorrhage which could be life threatening. I applied Peppermint Oil, IVY-D, and Herbal Adjustment to her spine and on her neck twice in the morning and twice in the evening. She could only drink sips of water because her throat was so sore. With the sips of water I gave her internally, 20 drops of Oregon Grape, 20 drops of A.C.S., and 20 drops of Sage to cleanse her lymph nodes. By the third evening following the above procedures she was felling well. Two weeks later her doctor confirmed that Melissa's spleen was normal and that she could start school on time and play sports if she wanted." --Willys Judware, Brewer, ME
"Michael Slider is five years old. Last week he put the palm of his hand on his grandmother's hot stove. Michael responded with screaming and crying, until I applied Pure Herbs Arnica to his burn. Arnica removed the trauma and immediately Michael stopped crying. He has not had as much as a blister or even redness on that hand. We think Arnica is next to a miracle! Thanks!" --Karryn Slider, mother, Covington, IN
A VERY SPECIAL TESTIMONIAL (PICTURES NOT INCLUDED ON WEB SITE) "This is my son, Christopher Ames. Picture one was taken before his accident; he was a normal healthy six year old getting out of the swimming pool. Picture two and three are at his 7th birthday party 6 months after his accident. Our dog leaped into the air after a toy Chris was playing with and came down on Chris' face. We would soon learn he had a lacerated cornea-center of his pupil. The doctor sent us to the cornea specialist in Indianapolis where he became the most serious patient they were caring for. They told us Chris had parasites, bacterial infection and fungus because of the dogs dirty paw. Their concentration was on killing these infections and hopefully save the eye. After an experimental eye drop they put together, and traveling day after day 150 miles to Indy, and a biopsy as well, they felt he was very lucky to have saved the eye. Now the only hope they gave me of improving his vision was to come back for a cornea transplant when he was 19. His vision was now 220/20, and he was legally blind in that eye. He was suffering from intense pain which can be seen in pictures 2 and 3. He almost never relaxed his face or uncovered his eye. Sometimes he would put a coat or towel over his head to completely shut out all light. His face was always red and twisted. Since the doctor released us to go back to the eye doctor in Danville for follow ups, I wanted to do something before our 2 week visit. We stopped at the Herb House in Covington, IN. My hope and prayer was that there would be something to help with the pain. We started Chris on a new product called R.S.T.-C for scar tissue. I put 3 droppers full under his tongue 3 times a day. After only 6 days, he put his hand down, opened his eye and the redness was gone. When we saw the doctor they questioned me about what I was giving him because his eye was now 150/20 and improving. After 3 bottles his eye sight is 69/20 and his beautiful face is back! Picture number 4. Thank you! Praise the Lord!" --Peggy Ames, mother, Danville, IL.
"A picture tells a lot! The testimony above reminds us of the scripture that says, 'and the blind shall see'. We were ecstatic over Chris' recovery! Thank you for R.S.T.-C. R.S.T.-C stands for Repair Scar Tissue. R.S.T.-C works on any kind of scar tissue anywhere in the body. Operations often cause scar tissue (the doctors call it adhesions) which create problems. It is often necessary to have another operation just to remove the scar tissue from the first surgery, and then another to remove scar tissue from the last surgery, etc., etc. We have many wonderful testimonies about how R.S.T.-C removed the scar tissue which enabled people to avoid further surgeries. Adhesions often cause pain. R.S.T.-C has been very successful at relieving pain, often in only 1 week." --Lon & Sherry Slider, Herb House, Covington, IN
"I would like to share with you how you can keep your cost down for heating this winter. Last year I was able to keep my thermostat between 60-64 degrees without freezing. I have a sponge on a long plastic stick and I put Herbal Adjustment on this sponge. I put the Herbal Adjustment all the way up my spine, around my neck, shoulders and across the girdle on the hips. And, if you really get cold put it on the bottoms of your feet. I haven't had to do that because I keep warm without it. Some people who have done this say it burns when they take a shower the next day, but if they perservere the burning will stop. This is how I have been able to keep my money in my pocket and out of the heating source's pocket! Thanks again for Herbal Adjustment!" --Jan, Herbs and Things, Brighton, CO
"Let me tell you of two experiences with Oil of Cajeput. Five years ago my husbands' aunt had gangrene in two of her toes. She refused surgery to amputate her foot. She was 92 then. She came here with us from the hospital and I started soaking her feet daily and putting Oil of Cajeput on the two toes and bandaged her foot ever day for about nine months. Here's the miracle. The black rotting toes dried up gradually and fell of in the bandage one morning. Our doctor checked the foot and cut the bone away and we cared for the area a few months more until the skin healed over. She's 97 now and not a diabetic. A month ago my husband went to our doctor for a check-up. He had a fungus infection under his big toe. The nail was lifted up and didn't look good. Our doctor said the medicine for fungal infection wasn't good for his liver so I told him I would try 'my herbs' first. I treated his foot with Oil of Cajeput every night. I soaked the foot in true soap and a few drops of Oil of Cajeput in the water. Then I rubbed Pure Herbs Aloe all over the cracks in his skin and put a few drops of Cajeput under the nail every night. I did this for three weeks and his foot looks good. It's all dried up under the nail and the cracks are looking good too." --Jane Coons, Johnstown, NY
"I would like to share with you how I helped the man I recently married who had viral pneumonia. His medical doctor had given him up for dead (really!) because he had weak lungs anyway and said there was nothing that could be done. One lung was entirely black and the second was about half gone. I had never met a man with a sweeter Christian heart, I did what I could. I used about ten different 'mixes' and single herbs; most specifically virus fighter Bee Propolis and Pleurisy Root. I have always blessed the day I first heard of Pure Herbs (they turned my own health completely around!) but now . . . I keep my new husband on a maintenance program of herbs for liver detoxification and lung healing and he is learning the use of many herbs. He's gotten to where he asks for specific things as he needs them. We keep a 'medicine chest' of herbs such as Oil of Cajeput (everything from brushing teeth to healing sores), Ol' Number 11, and Red Clover Blended (questionable 'sun spots) for a variety of ills. The contagious sinus-y thing that goes around seems to respond well to snorting S.I.-W (startling, but worth it) several times a day for several days in a row. I also wanted to mention that my husband has had severe problems with the so-called 'reflux' disease. Turning him into a guinea pig, I used the hypothesis that the real problem for most people is not too much acid, but insufficient digestive enzymes (as identified in past Pure Herbs research). I got him chewable because reflux individuals have trouble swallowing at times. The difference is amazing. He previously swallowed tums like candy, to no avail, and would choke himself awake at night. Now he sleeps through the night and no longer has the bloating, stomach discomfort, pain and choking. Maybe this can help someone else?" --Diane Floerchinger, Littleton, CO
"In July of 1999 I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism (Graves Disease). The medical doctor immediately wanted to give me radioactive iodine to kill the thyroid. In August 1999 I went to another doctor who did more tests which confirmed the diagnosis. But I just didn't see any sense in killing an organ in my body. In September I went to see Doctor Watkins at his office in Southfield and he put me on a regime to clean, repair, eliminate viral poisons and reduce trauma to the thyroid. I applied Black Cohosh, Burdock, Ol' Number 11, and Arnica to my neck and over my thyroid area twice a day and took one tablespoon of Ol' Number 11 orally. On my return to the medical doctor in December, my thyroid hormone levels were normal. The doctor was amazed! He had never had such a turn-around from full blown Graves Disease. The doctor told me that whatever I did to get better, not to tell anyone, because it would put him out of business!" --Carol Schmitz, Commerce Twp., MI
"I just wanted to let you know that my mother-in-law came down with severe Rheumatoid arthritis. She went to a medical doctor who just shook his head and gave her medication to stop the pain. He said there was nothing more he could do. We decided to attack it naturally. Asking around, we found that it can come from silicon implants. We began cleansing. Of all the products we used (many herbs) I have to attribute much of the success to Research Formula. This neutralized the toxins as they were being cleansed from her system. If Research Formula wasn't used she could have become poisoned. After only two-four weeks the improvement was remarkable. She could sleep at night with no shoulder pain. She even called to say (in tears) that she could get on her knees and pray again!!! Her hands can straighten now and the knots have gone down 50%. She's on her way. I must again say hooray for Pure Herbs!" --Lana Comstock, Magnolia, TX
"One of our customers had a girl that was nervous because she didn't want to go to school. They wanted to hold her back in her grade. The girl started taking Pure Herbs B.N.C.-W and is now doing a lot better." --A Friend "One of our children was so absent-minded, forgetful, and had a real hard time in school and would bite his finger nails off that we were told to try the B.N.C.-W. We had good results. His grades in school went from almost failing to an 82 (B) average, he quit biting his finger nails and isn't so irratible when he takes his herbs regularly." --Miriam Yoder's clients, Reedsville, PA
"I have been taking supplements for over 20 years for numerous ailments, even though my doctors said they really weren't necessary. I had very low blood pressure, I was very weak , depressed and moody. I also had stomach and gall bladder problems. At my requests my doctor did a thyroid and blood sugar test. He told me they showed no problems. Then, I finally saw an Iridologist, Reuben Schwartz who recommended I try H.I.K.-W for blood sugar and craving sweeets, T.-W for my thyroid, Licorice Root for my adrenals and Big 5 and Peppermint Oil for my back pain (resulting from an auto accident). I also took S.I.-W for my sinus problems and it was very helpful. Since then I continue to use these herbal products and my son and husband even use some of the herbs for their problems. We all feel much better. I am so thankful for God sending these people and herbs to help us. We feel obligated to give our testimonials and help as many other people as we can. The reason is they really do work, but only if you take them!" --Virginia Rountree, Brownsville, KY
"I am happy to say in my experiences truly your products are the best! Tom Slider introduced me to Pure Herbs about 4 years ago. One day upon looking in my brother-in-laws eyes, I saw glaucoma, he however know of his condition, his mother had it as well. I suggested B.&B.-W. After one bottle, he returned to his eye specialist to find the glacuoma was gone and his hearing was better as well. I'm saddened to say people with long-standing conditions don't realize what true maintenance is until they have had the condition for a year or two and it becomes a cronic condition and keeps reoccuring. Now when my brother-in-law orders B.&B.-W he orders it two bottles at a time. He says he will never be without the herbs again. I say, 'thank God for the Pure Herbs family.'" --Rashawn Douglas, Camden, NJ
"My husband had congestion in the base of his throat for seven months. Three doctors gave him prescriptions for a nasal drip. Finally, the third doctor took an EKG and sent him to a heart doctor. The congestion was a symptom of a heart problem, an enlarged weak heart. Richard Dicks told us to try Stone Root and in two days it was cleared up. He is still taking it and the congestion hasn't come back. My husband is now on H.T. Combination and Lily of the Valley & Blessed Thistle and is feeling stronger. I also have a testimony to share. I took Stone Root and my hemorroids were gone in 2 weeks." --Barbara Hastey, Dover, NJ
"For stubborn sinus problems use the following: 4oz. Distilled water with 20 drops of Olive Leaf Extract. Shake the bottle a few times and drop up your nostrils four times a day. Easy and it works! Olive Leaf removes bacteria, viruses, fungus, and parasites, even in your sinuses. Olive Leaf along with Red Clover Blended removes 'cancerous tumors'. Also, Sanicle should be added if there are several tumors. One man I have helped had 42 tumors - malignant and the third time they returned verified by Cat Scan. Two bottles each of Olive Leaf and Red Clover Blended and there were only 21 tumors, verified by Cat Scan. He has continued with the 'program' and upon last check only had 14 tumors and they are shrinking. He then decided to cancel his planned surgery. He looks and feels great! On the riddance of herpes: 40 drops of Olive Leaf three times a day. It may take two or three bottles to clear this out of the system, but it will and it does! This includes Shingles too. I recommend Olive Leaf first and then I go after whatever else is left, if anything at all!" --Judith Lorraine, Denver, CO
"I had a mother come to me for help with her seven year old son who was showing signs of compulsive behavior. He was changing his clothes up to seven times before going to school and constantly washing his hands. I suggested she try S.M.F.-B, Gotu Kola, and Five Good. They noticed a difference right away. When they ran out of his herbs he started going back to his behavior again. As soon as they put him back on the herbs he showed signs of improvement again. Also, I have seen these herbs work on children who have trouble concentrating in school." --Geneva Gile, Irasburg, VT
"After already seven years of success with herbs, regarding seasonal allergies with children, I was very excited to try Pure Herbs A.E.A.-B. My oldest daughter had developed bronchitits in the Fall when allergies and molds were holding up in between frosts. This cough reoccurred in January with frigid temperatures and artificial home heat. I knew Spring pollen would be a bother for her cough. Naturally, after two weeks of A.E.A.-B she hasn't developed the cough and has only minor phlegm from early pollens. The best news is that she isn't on Zyrtec daily anymore, which was prescribed after Claritin wasn't helping (both of these are prescription drugs). Thank you Pure Herbs!" --Sally Twill, Summit, NJ
"When our daughter was just six weeks old, our pediatrician decided to administer the vaccines recommended for children at two months, which are five different shots! We were nervous about this and only let them give her three shots with the understanding we would come back in a week for the other two. Needless to say, our daughter had a terrible reaction and almost choked to death! We did not take her back for any more shots! After researching vaccines, we have discovered that contrary to what the medical profession advocates, vaccines actually damage our children's developing immune systems, making our children their patients for life. We immediately consulted with Bella Vladimirsky (she contacted Dr. Watkins) and both recommended we try IMS-W, rubbing a few drops on our daughter's feet three times a day to strengthen her immune system. We also are using Alfalfa & Vita-Lixer on the soles of her feet in the same manner. I am thrilled to tell you that our daughter is now almost eight months old and thriving! While all the other infants we know have been sick constantly with respiratory illnesses and chronic ear infections, (which also are caused by vaccines), our daughter has not been sick with anything, with the exception of her vaccine reaction. Most states allow for religious exemption against vaccinations, and we have claimed this in our daughter's case. We strongly urge all parents to research vaccines. We think they will discover that Pure Herbs, Ltd. offers better health benefits for their children than any drug in the medical world. Our Creator has given us these natural gifts and we should use them, especially for our most precious blessings, our children.""I used to suffer with arthritis in my knees. I began taking Ephedra as a means to control my appetite (which works excellently) . It never occurred to me that the herb was actually healing my arthritis as well. A few months back we had a rain spell that lasted five days. Normally under these conditions, I am sore and miserable. I didn't even notice that I wasn't suffering any more . . . My husband did! He asked 'did you notice that you haven't been hurting in a while?' No, I hadn't. I just knew that I felt great and pain free, and I haven't had any pain, swelling or discomfort since! I take Ephedra every day three times a day and it works!" --Khadija Abdur-Rahmaan, Detroit, MI
"For the past 10 years I have used and carried in my purse, Indian Tobacco. It certainly came in handy when I was out to dinner with a friend. At the end of her meal my friend ate a cookie. A few of the crumbs started irritating her throat and she immediately went into a coughing and wheezing spasm. She was red in the face and unable to stop the cough. I told her to relax and placed 2 drops of Indian Tobacco on her tongue. Slight relief followed. I put one more drop under the tongue and suddenly after a moment passed the spasm stopped. She then was ready for a few sips of water and blessed relief. My friend exclaimed, 'This is a miracle, what did you use!!?' I told her it was Indian Tobacco also know as Lobelia. I never leave home without it. Note: I used my best judgement and knew my friend was not in danger of choking. It was more of an irritation from the cookie crumbs than anything. I had experienced a similar type of cough irritation from food once. Pure Herbs are pure and wonderful." --Sheila Kaplowitz, Henderson, NC
"I would like to share a testimonial on SI.-W and ACS as a nasal spray. Nine eyedroppers of SI.-W and two eyedroppers of ACS and fill the rest of a one ounce bottle with distilled water. Put in a nasal sprayer and use as often as needed." --Jean Kinnett, Lawrenceburg, IN
"Client reports after taking: Echinacea, Goldenseal, and Oregon Grape on a regular basis that growth at left side of neck and off-and-on severe pain are gone completely. She stays on the supplements for maintenance." --Esther Miesel, C.N.H.P., Wyoming, MI
"Pure Herbs products have helped me gain my health back. I used to be dependent on antibiotics due to having so many respiratory throat and ear infections. I also have diabetes that was out of control. After some good cleansing herbs, diet and herbs to help with my infections and prevention of my diabetes from advancing I have felt great! Now I have more energy and I only get sick once a year instead of every two weeks or every month. Hopefully soon I will never get sick. My blood sugar is now normal. Thank you Pure Herbs for all your help. Also, thank you Ella Faye Holder who taught me all about herbal remedies and care." --Terry Arellano, San Diego, CA
"I am 37 years old and have always had female trouble. The doctors answer was hormones, which I didn't like the side affects. The gynecologist answer was a hysterectomy. Thanks to Pure Herbs and an herbalist at Country Herbs in Crothersville, I now have regular cycles, with no cramping or flooding. What a blessing after 26 years of suffering. I take Wild Yam and P.M.S.-W regularly and Crampbark & False Unicorn when needed for cramps. I also recommend going to someone who has a muscle response monitor or to an Iridologist. My son was 8 years old when he got out of bed to tell me it felt like something was stuck in his throat. Our doctor put him on Pepsid A.C. because he thought he had an ulcer. He had lost so much weight because he couldn't swallow. He would cry every time I gave him the Pepsid A.C. So the doctor sent him to a specialist who ran a light down his throat and removed a small cyst which was benign. I was praying several times a day to help me find some way to help my son. I was sent to Country Herbs and Pure Herbs. I am so grateful, especially for Pure Herbs. When he couldn't swallow capsules and opening them and putting them in pudding was stressing him and me out, the extracts worked wonderfully. T.-W worked wonders on his thyroid, which was why he couldn't swallow. Pure Herbs, Ltd. has helped my family in so many ways. Especially when I was having anxiety attacks. My doctor told me to go home and go to bed. What was I supposed to do? Stay in bed the rest of my life! God put these herbs on earth for a reason, so why not use them instead of lining the pharmaceuticals pockets and having all the side effects." --Ramona Cundiff
"Early in 1992 my husband Charles had a stroke that left the left hand and arm quite weak. The doctor did an ultra-sound and determined there was an almost closed artery in his shoulder. The doctor put him on blood thinners which made him cold all the time. It was recommended that I use O.C.M. and that would dissolve what was blocking the arteries and pass it out of the system without stopping any place else. Charles took O.C.M. three times a day and we also applied some to the area where the main blockage was supposed to be. At night I put a dressing over the area and covered it with a plastic wrap to help it penetrate. In the weeks that Charles was going back for physical therapy the doctor did another ultra-sound and found the blood flow had increased to just about normal. He started to say something about the blood thinner when I told him Charles hadn't taken the thinners because they made him cold and tired. I told the doctor about O.C.M. and he became very upset and told me I don't care what you're doing, but you might as well keep it up. That was the last time we went there! In 1999, I was talking to my son, John, in North Carolina. John calls himself a company representative, I call him a traveling salesman. He was complaining his legs were giving him trouble, the veins were swelling, popping out, and very painful. The doctor was going to give him pain pills to try (didn't guarantee anything) and also a blood thinner. I reminded him about the O.C.M. his father took. I sent him a 4oz. size. He would not take it orally, but only applied it to the affected areas on his legs. He rubbed it on his legs in an upward motion and put the dressing on at night. Unfortunately, John wouldn't stay off of his feet. After about two weeks his legs did feel better though. In June John had a heart attack and needed a triple by-pass. Guess where they got the veins good enough to use for his heart? Right - the very legs he couldn't stand on a few months before. If he had taken O.C.M. orally, I don't think he would've had the heart attack, but then he would still be smoking. Oh well, he's fine now thanks to Dr. Watkins and O.C.M." --Virginia Dodge, Eastpointe, MI
"I would like to share an incident that changed my life. I had a recurring fever blister on my lips for 22 years. For a while, it broke out every change of season and when I was stressed out. Then, after about 10 years, the outbreaks became more frequent. Once, I was very stressed and the whole side of my face broke out. This was very embarrassing. In 1994, I began to take Broad Beans from Pure Herbs for several months. Then, I did the Oral Chelation (O.C.M.) that Dr. Watkins recommends with All Cell Salts for about three or four times a day. He is right. You do get very good at estimating the amount. Anyway, I could smell the toxins coming out of my body and began to feel better, in general, and a lot more peaceful. About 6 months later, I noticed I wasn't getting the fever blisters anymore. To this day, I rarely ever get one and if I do they go away within a few days (stay off of chocolate and all forms of caffeine at first sign of outbreak). Jesus Christ is the ultimate healer. Thank you, Pure Herbs, for making the herbs available and Dr. Watkins for writing the books that offer such wonderful advice."

Correction to the testimonial from Anonymous (above). "It was not O.C.M. that was taken and caused reoccurring fever blisters to go away. It was actually A.C.S. (All Cells Salts) which caused the 'oral chelation' to occur and help get rid of the reoccurring fever blisters." Please make note of this correction. "Here at my dog training center, I make use of Pure Herb remedies for my canine friends. The veterinarians send me dog clients with behavioral issues. Starting out with one of the Universal Emotional Remedies (UER) addresses the emotional aspect of the problem and works well. I have also had great success with Bee Propolis for healing, especially the pads of the feet. Arnica is a must for all my students to have on hand. I recommend it before and after surgery especially. Oil of Cajeput works great to heal sores that dogs keep after. The odor deters licking."

"I don't know where to begin. If I were to tell you all the wonderful benefits of your high quality herbal extracts, your fax machine would be tied up for a long time! I just want to relate my most recent miracle. I danced on pointe for nineteen years and did considerable damage to my toe joints. In addition, I was disabled for four years due to status asthmaticus (essentially an asthma attack that lasted for four years) and was taking up to 120 mg. of prednisone daily. If my joints were not completely destroyed by the dancing, the prednisone finished them off! I have taken Hydrangea in capsule form for some time with great benefit since it is very effective in releasing excess acids from the system. Acids contribute to joint destruction and PAIN. I wanted to soak my feet in hydrangea, but who can make the time to sit for 10 or 15 minutes, not doing anything else? Well, I decide to soak my feel while I shower! I close the drain in the tub and let the water fill while I take my usual shower. I add liquid hydrangea extract to the water, thereby giving myself a foot soak without changing anything in my daily routine. I expected relief of the stabbing pain in my toe joints after a few weeks. To my surprise, I got relief immediately. And more, I actually had relief of the burning pain in my hips as well, even without sitting in the tub! This would not be possible without the highest potency and quality of Hydrangea that we are blessed to receive from Pure Herbs, Ltd. Thank you from the tips of my toes! (and my heart)."

"After being diagnosed with a severe case of osteoarthritis in my right hip during March of 2000, I knew I would have to be pro-active in dealing with this serious situation. Being a believer in alternative methods, I tried Glucosamine, Chondroitin, MSM, Sam-e, and vitamin and mineral supplementation. In March of 2001, I added CA.-W 80 drops three times per day. After several months I dropped back to 40 drops three times per day. Beginning in March of 2001, I had complemented my treatment plan with visits to an osteopathic physician. These visits helped with range of motion and some pain reduction. In April of 2001, I added 40 drops of Irish Moss three times per day, after meals. After six to eight weeks, I noticed improvement in the pain level in my hip. No other treatments had been used during that time. Most of my pain reduction, I noticed, came after taking the Irish Moss. To date, I have been able to prevent a total hip replacement."
