BURNOUT – Adaptogens Really Help

Herbs called adaptogens basically help our bodies to adapt to new circumstances – trying or joyful. Change of any kind will have its way with us by straining the adrenals and immune system, hence the illness that can occur after finishing a major project/trip or receiving shocking news – and we’ve all had plenty of that.

The herbs contained in our adrenal support formulas are all adaptogens, as the nutrients they carry nourish and soothe both the hormonal and immune systems. If the immune system has been neglected for too long and has been showing its displeasure by always “coming down with everything going around,” then specific immune system formulas should be added to the adrenal formula for a year or so.

Of course, the other therapy for burnout is to take some time in nature, hence our little vacation above to the wilds of the Oregon coast.

We look forward to your orders and questions before and after that time, so you’ll be all set.

A lovely and healthy autumn to you,

Doc Eve

Skin & Hormonal Success Stories

Clear Your Lungs of Summer Smoke and Smog

Sun Through Smoky AirRight now, in the dog days of summer, replete with wildfires, smoke and smog, we don’t have to feel like fully paid up paranoids to want to protect our lungs and bronchi. We already feel that bit of tightness in the chest and throat, coughing discreetly as the lungs try to eliminate any inhaled particles.

If you already have the Herba Pneu formula at home and are currently in the midst of respiratory distress, or are experiencing the aftermath of wildfire smoke, take an extra couple of capsules a day. Herba Pneu is an expectorant that promotes clearing the sinuses, bronchi and lungs. In other words, it will make that little cough work for you to eliminate particles or the products of infection.

For burning or irritated eyes, you might consider our homeopathic Dry Eye Relief drops and use them frequently to soothe them.

For other respiratory problems these Eve’s Herbs Therapy Packs are available:

Bronchitis Therapy Pack
Asthma Therapy Pack

SOME PATIENT TESTIMONIALS

  1.  WEIGHT LOSS as a Good Side Effect for Treating an Itch:  We got rid of a pre-summer make-you-crazy itch. No explanation from her medics after a few thousand dollars. She said it was, “Sensitive like it’s on fire”. We sent the O/N formula and Aller-Total. To top it off, she called to say she also lost 5 lbs. and asked how, so she could keep doing it.
  2. MIGRAINES GONE following Weight Loss Program:  A 73-year-old new patient called to say she was amazed that in one week she dropped 13 lbs., from 219 to 206, and that it was easy and comfortable. Although a little more time was spent in the bathroom, it suited anyway. What delighted her the most, though, was that she’s had no more migraines since she started her program a week ago. She was so glad they were gone as she had been having them almost daily all summer – something she was miserably “getting used to”.  “Oh, and by the way, I have a lot more energy!”  She loves the Detox powder, and will keep taking it, and will empty the capsules of Patic Fe, TQH and Sugar Free into the morning drink. It’s so nice to hear good news like this…
  3. ATRIAL FIBRILLATION:  “Your suggestions for A-Fib are working.”  Yay!!. She’s taking Eve’s Cardio, Joy Blend and Cramp Bark.

Best of Health to you as always,

New Summer Recipe – Light, Delicious & Unusual

Dear Patients and Friends,

I came across this refreshing and savory recipe from Denise Roa, the Executive Chef at Rancho La Puerta Resort, and had to try it. What a toothsome treat! I did use the optional minced jalapeño chili with most of the seeds taken out, and also added a few black seedless grapes to garnish. A nice fillet of wild salmon, gently sautéed in my homemade thyme-and-garlic-infused butter (see below) goes well with it. A light meal for a hot summer night.

COLESLAW with a CILANTRO-YOGURT DRESSING
(Anti-oxidant, Anti-Cancer & Fat-Scrubbing)

Ingredients (Preferably Organic):Coleslaw with Cilantro-Yogurt Dressing EvesHerbs-Remedies.com
3 cups shredded red cabbage
3 cups shredded green cabbage
1 bunch of radishes – thinly sliced (~½ a cup)
½ small jicama, peeled and cut into small cubes (~1½ cups)
2 scallions, thinly sliced
¾ cup plain yogurt
3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2 tbsp. fresh lime juice
2 tbsp. rice vinegar
1 tsp. sea salt
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 jalapeño chili, seeded and minced (optional)
1 doz. black seedless grapes or cubed mango (optional)

Directions:
1. Combine the red and green cabbages, radishes, jicama and scallions in a large bowl.
2. Mix the yogurt, oil, lime juice, vinegar and salt in a blender until smooth.
3. Stir in the cilantro and, if desired, the jalapeño.
4. Toss the veggies with the dressing to coat them.
5. Add the grapes on top, cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

A ready meal for up to 3 days in the fridge. Serves 4-6.  Buon Appetito!

THYME & GARLIC BUTTER – great for sautéing everythingDr. Eve with Garlic-Thyme Butter

1 stick (4 oz.) of butter (we prefer goat’s) – let it soften at room temp.
2 cloves of garlic – minced.
1-3 tsps. of fresh thyme (ideally) – use less if it’s dried.

Mash it all together and it’s ready to go. Refrigerate (lasts 2-3 weeks).

Just a thought to – ”Open up our clenched hearts” – Pema Chödrön. So essential in our present political climate. We may as well try it, even opening a little bit sometimes feels pretty good!

Best of health to you,

Our NEW Anti-Stress Adrenal Formula is Here!

Dear Patients and Friends,

An excellent watermelon season is upon us, thank goodness, as our triple-digit temperatures certainly require lots of hydration. I remember I had eaten nothing but watermelon when I went into an August 20-hour labor with our son, Joey, and by golly, made it through just on that. It will work to hydrate us better than plain water. It’s good to replace a meal, too, and drop some extra pounds.Our Newest Formula - Eve's Herbs HerbAdrenal F:S

INTRODUCING OUR NEWEST FORMULA

Our new HerbAdrenal F:S formula with white peony root is finally here.  It is a quiet energy support for the adrenals, thyroid and overall metabolism. With a combination of herbs from our Blend F and Blend S formulas, it has calming, anti-inflammatory and stress-easing properties. The stress and depression so many of us are feeling at the moment makes this a timely formula.

High in naturally occurring plant nutrients, including vitamins B and C, calcium and magnesium, HerbAdrenal F:S is a tonic, soothing and restoring when stress levels are high or when recovering from illness. It supports hormonal balance in the male and female reproductive organs and the stress-coping mechanisms.

SWALLOWING THOSE CAPSULES, PILLS OR TABLETS

We want to feel better and know that the capsules or tablets work, but just can’t “get them down”.  Give this a try:

With capsules – if thick or pulpy juices don’t help, or even filtered juices with the Detox formula mixed in, then just slide the capsules open and put the contents into a glass of juice or smoothie.

Tablets want to be pulverized by putting them in a cloth or 2 sheets of Saran Wrap. Gently, set to them with your hammer, rubber mallet or some such significant tool (like a mortar and pestle, if you have them). Add to the glass, then stir in some black cherry juice, rice milk or yogurt and drink the mix through one of those fat straws – apparently, you can’t even taste them with this method. A patient turned me on to this and I pass it on to you. Let me know how this goes for you.

Stay as cool and hydrated as these crazy temperatures permit.

’Til soon,

Doc Eve
