Recently my husband and I were honoured and privileged to have earned the attendance package to Rising Star International Convention sponsored by Nature’s Sunshine. Distributors from various countries including Central America, South America, Japan Ukraine, Russia, and Canada etc were in attendance. An obvious evidence of one element was common to all of us. We all took great pride in improving the lives of other people through the Nature’s Sunshine products which are designed to improve the health and financial needs of others. I had the opportunity to speak to a medical doctor from Russia who is a Nature’s Sunshine Distributor. He is a urologist and has quite a large practice in his country. He uses Nature’s Sunshine kidney herbs such as K quite extensively in his practice and his eyes have seen miracles. He loves Nature’s Sunshine and holds Nature’s Sunshine in very high esteem. Another couple I chatted with resided in Ukraine. They sell Nature’s Sunshine through their store. In Ukraine the average monthly salary is about $500 and no one in Ukraine deemed it too expensive to pay $8 for a bottle of NSP Alfalfa. Health in Ukraine is a priority because the cost of medical care is extremely expensive. Tens of thousands in Ukraine have taken the responsibility of the health of their bodies into their own hands and tens of thousands depend on Nature’s Sunshine to provide them with a healthy living. ”Nature’s Sunshine always pays every month.” The last Nature’s Sunshine Convention in Ukraine brought in an attendance of 10,000 people, a football stadium full of NSP distributors. These people from Ukraine absolutely love Nature’s Sunshine. To them Nature’s Sunshine is a gold mine in more ways than one. I am here to say it can be a gold mine to anyone that wants it !

Rising Star convention took us through a tour of the Nature’s Sunshine plant located in Spanish Forks, Utah. I was so very impressed with their amazing quality control. The company employs numerous scientists that head the quality control labs. The quality is so meticulous that each quality procedure must be checked and signed off by 2 different people before it moves to the next procedure. The lab houses numerous pieces of state-of-the-art equipment to ensure that each product featured on the market is the best in the world and meets the product and quality standards for each capsule, tablet, powder and liquid product. Some of the products are also submitted to outside independent laboratories to confirm that tests at NSP are accurate, clean and of integrity.
The product Zambroza, for example, (sold in the States as Thai Go) has been tested at Brunswick Laboratories, a well respected independent 3rd party lab. Brunswick tested Zambroza not only for it’s ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) but also HORAC (Hydroxyl Radical Averting Capacity) for Phenolics, Bioflavanoids and Xanthones. Brunswick Labs certified Zambroza (Thai GO) in all 5 of the antioxidant tests. Brunswick Labs also tested 2 other competitive well known antioxidant brands and here are the comparisons: Brand B---23323 ORAC value; Brand X----24480 ORAC value; Nature’s Sunshine Zambroza (ThaiGO) 51,939 ORAC, a value double that of competitor’s brands.

Nature Sunshine sends their own scientists to the various farms around the world that grow or gather herbs for the company. There is an initial screening test at the farm level to determine if NSP would even consider purchasing the herbs. Variables such as soil quality, climate, humidity, toxin levels are all considered so that only the purest and most energetically powerful plants are selected. Here is a small list of some of the herbs and various countries they come from; St. John’s Wort, Mullein and Valerian come from Germany; Dandelion comes from China; Cascara Sagrada comes from Canada and the USA; Lobelia and Lavender come from France. There is, for example, a less expensive Valerian product on the market that comes from India but it lacks the valerenic acid and therefore is not effective. However this cheaper species is often found on the store shelves. Many of the herbs have 5 or 6 different kinds of species but Nature’s Sunshine chooses only the best and markets only the top quality varieties. Nature’s Sunshine‘s “finger printing“ method is always able to pick out the right species of plant. The herb must be the right quality from the right part of the plant without exception right from the start. Testing continues on each herb and each batch of herbs right through to the finished product to continue to ascertain through all processes that the product maintains the expected potency throughout, and that it is correctly mixed and processed and contains absolutely no contaminants.

Nature Sunshine houses radiation detection equipment that can test up to 5 different forms of radiation. Many companies miss the testing for radiation in a product and consequently their products go on the market without radiation testing. Chickweed, for example, which comes from Europe was not available on the market for several years because of radiation after the Chernobyl disaster. Other sources of Chickweed did not meet NSP standards so NSP refused to sell chickweed. However, Chickweed was readily available from other suppliers. The people in the labs at NSP said that if a product is on back order it is likely that the labs have rejected a product and the company will not compromise on quality.

At the plant we also had the opportunity to witness the incredible features of chromatography, a method of taking the light signature of an herb. Eyebright, for instance, when powdered looks, tastes and smells like Mullein but chromatography clearly identifies which herb is Mullein and which one is Eyebright.

We were amazed to discover that Nature’s Sunshine uses more than 300 separate tests to determine the quality, purity and potency of their materials and products. The tablet, MC, for instance contains 23 different vitamins and minerals and 13 different herbs and other substances and it requires rigorous and numerous testing to evaluate each raw material, each mixed batch and final tablets to verify purity, consistency and potency. Now we all know why MC is such a superior, effective product when it comes to oral chelation and heavy metal detoxification.

Nature’s Sunshine’s scientists are also actively publishing their researched studies and findings in various reputable journals. Perfect Eyes with Bilberry has been studied extensively by Nature’s Sunshine Method and Development Group. Dr. McLaughlin published a paper in the Journal of Agricultural Food Chemicals detailing the methods of determining the various types of antioxidants present in Bilberry. Dr. McLaughlin also published his scientific studies on Paw Paw and cancer in the American Medical Journal.

Many times the potency of certain vitamins is lost during the refining process. But not so with Nature’s Sunshine. For instance, Vitamin B Complex and Stress Formula provides a variety of B vitamins which are easily lost during refining so these formulas are tested repeatedly to ensure that the levels of B Vitamins remain the same throughout the production process. What other company do you know that claims this type of meticulous testing?

Nature Sunshine ensures that each product is free form contaminants and as you know there are many of them in our day. Bee Pollen, for instance, is thoroughly checked for contaminants such as pesticides and herbicides. Since 1979 Aloe Vera Juice has been manufactured right on site to maintain high levels of purity and potency. Other companies water down their aloe products while NSP Aloe Vera Juice is 100% Aloe Vera. NSP Essential Liquid Minerals contains a full spectrum of macro and trace minerals mixed in purified water. NSP ensures that no other chemicals are added to any of their formula.

Nature’s Sunshine has over 35 years of experience in the natural supplement industry and at its heart Nature Sunshine speaks health—your health! But as the supplement industry has become more mainstream, the market has been flooded with companies wanting to capitalize on the “next big thing” There are confusions and claims prevalent in the market that can make it very difficult to determine which products are best. Your health is too important to be left to chance. Nature’s Sunshine has made the investments necessary to remain at the top of the industry for many years and for many years to come. There is no question in my mind that Nature’s Sunshine is the best in it’s field. I am living proof of it as I stand before you to boast of 25 years of putting absolutely no drugs, not even an antibiotic or an aspirin into my body. I use Nature’s Sunshine herbs instead. And they have worked every single time! Isn’t it time that you chose the pathway of “herbs instead”, Nature’s Sunshine herbs?

Success Stories

At the Rising Star convention I spoke to Linda, a very educated person with a Degree in Chemistry and Microbiology as well as a Masters in Quality Management. Five years ago in 2003, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Along with her chemo treatments which lasted for 4 months, she also followed this program:
Protease Plus 3-4 times a day between meals; Chinese Mineral Chi Tonic 4 oz. a day; Super Oil 4 per day; Paw Paw 4-3 times a day.
She also drank 1 bottle of Natures Noni a day 1 week before her surgery to remove the cancerous breast lump. Every day she drank Liquid Chlorophyll and water and stopped sugar and yeast breads. She reports that she felt absolutely no pain, no energy loss, no side effects from the chemo treatments and she never missed one day of work. Even though her doctor did not approve of Linda’s taking all this good nutrition, Linda decided to take responsibility for the health of her body into her own hands. How could nutrition hurt anyone? Within 4 months she was cancer free and has been cancer free for over 5 years. Linda absolutely loves Nature’s Sunshine products.

Linda’s Mom is in her 80’s and takes 4 Noni capsules 3 times a day as a pain killer for her arthritis and it does the job - no pain.

Linda also opens up the Noni capsules and puts it in the dog food for her German Shepherd dog and its problems of hip Dysplasia have totally subsided.

I also met Barry at Rising Star and at one time he was diagnosed with lung cancer. He followed the Paw Paw program using Zambroza, Super Oil, Colostrum, Bifidophilous, Paw Paw and Protease Plus. He followed the directions as stated on each bottle. Barry decided he would not do any chemotherapy treatments because he had witnessed his Dad die a very painful death after he had been treated with chemo for multiple cancers. Barry quotes, ”There was no way I was going to do drugs after I saw the way my Dad died. “ Today he is cancer free and he attended Rising Star as a special guest to tell his story. He has now devoted his life to being a Nature’s Sunshine distributor so that he could help others who are undergoing cancers. I ,Donna Roth , share the same passion about helping others with cancers. Please purchase a copy of my book, Practical Solutions to the Cancer Injury Manual, to discover what cancer really is and how you can overcome it and also prevent it. I know that neither Barry nor Donna Roth are medical doctors but we both have something to tell you about cancer if only you would lend us your ear. The answer to cancer will never come from the conventional medical institutions . They were not designed for that purpose. So is it not time you looked else where? Please remember to take in my cancer teleconference call on Wed. July 23 @ 5:30 pm BC time.
One gentleman who had high blood pressure and was on medication began the oral chelation program with MC 4 /2 times a day and Chinese Mineral Chi Tonic 1 oz. 2 times a day . Recently he went to see his doctor and was told that his blood pressure was normal and that he would no longer have to take medication. The doctor was suspicious that the medication was causing the kidneys to fail. This gentleman is now taking kidney herbs to correct the kidney problem. Stay tune to the results in the next newsletter.

Recently, I drove to Manitoba to attend my aunt’s funeral. Everyone was amazed that I was able to drive such a long distance without tiring out. Actually so was I! Here is my secret. I sipped on Zambroza the entire way. I found it kept me aware and mentally alert so that fatigue was not an issue. So I told this story to a friend who was also traveling a long distance . He also sipped on a bottle of Zambroza on his trip and called me when he reached his destination. He was totally impressed that he felt so mentally alert to the point of saying that Zambroza saved his life. He said that at one point another car passed him on a double lined curve with another car coming in the other direction. This man’s quick thinking and quick response made him to veer unto the shoulder very quickly to avoid an accident. In his opinion Zambroza helps you to act fast.

Garry used to get up 2 to 3 times every night to use the bathroom. He started taking 4 Men’s Formula a day along with 2 scoops of Flax Hull Lignans in water. This program solved the bathroom trip problem.

My deepest gratitude is extended to all those who so willingly shared their stories. We have many answers and they are all so simple. All diseased conditions start with a nutritional deficiency . When we feed the body with the nutrition and energy it needs , it does the rest of the work for us every time, no exceptions. It is our scepticism and lack of faith that stalls the process of healing.
