Heart Valve


A lady in her 60’s was told she needed heart valve replacement surgery. She was scheduled to have the surgery in about 5 months. I suggested she might want to take the MC and Hawthorne anyway—it wouldn’t hurt. She decided to work up to 9 per day of MC and 6 per day of Hawthorne. A couple of months later she went to the doctor to be monitored. He looked puzzled and said her heart valve didn’t seem to be so bad anymore. She continued with the MC and Hawthorne, and went in for another check-up before the surgery. The doctor looked very puzzled, and said she didn’t need the surgery anymore-her valve was fine.

Heavy Legs

My Mom in her 90’s had no energy. She didn’t believe in taking any herbs, so it was hard to help her .She said her legs felt so heavy it was such an effort to walk. Finally she took MC, 3 capsules twice a day. A few days later we went for a walk. She kicked up her legs happily as we walked along, and said, “See, they’re not heavy anymore

Heart and Circulation


The pamphlet has excellent information on the above, so I am just going to share with you my favorite products.
MC: This is by far to me the most important product I take. Without it I lose my stamina and strength. It helps not just the heart, arteries, and circulation, but it supports the adrenals. I have used it for maintenance for years at 4 per day. If I go hiking or doing something strenuous, I take more. I can hike all day when I use it. About a year ago I thought I should stop taking it for a while, so I did. About 5 days later I was doing physical work outside. After a few minutes I had to sit down. I had no stamina and strength to continue. I thought, “What in the world is the matter with me?” Then I remembered that I had stopped taking the MC. I went in and took some immediately, and about 40 minutes later was able to resume my work without any problem.
MC can be used as a base product for heart/artery/circulatory problems. If a person has a weak heart, it can be taken with Hawthorne for the heart muscle. (If the heart muscle is weak from taking statin drugs for high cholesterol, it must be used with additional COQ10, as high cholesterol drugs deplete the body of COQ10, leading to congestive heart failure. High cholesterol drugs are the leading cause of congestive heart failure.) If arrythmia is the problem, I would use MC, Hawthorne, and 4 or more per day of Magnesium Complex.

This is a serious condition where the herpes zoster virus attacks the nerves. It is manifest by an itchy, painful rash especially along the spine. It is this same virus that causes cold sores. Fortunately, NSP has a Chinese formula designed just for that virus. (It works on others, too) It is called HRP-C. I recall a number of years ago visiting an elderly lady who was not well and said she had shingles on her head, and it was very painful. I told her about the HRP-C, but she said she was following her doctor’s program. So I told her to call me if she wanted my help. A number of months later I dropped in when I was in that area again, to see how she was doing. She had DIED. Her family said the virus had gone into her brain and killed her.
Over the years I have worked with so many people who have had shingles, and they have all gotten better. This is the basic program I tell everyone about:
HRP-C 8 capsules per day (4 capsules twice daily with meals)
OLIVE LEAF EXTRACT 6 per day. Also anti-viral.
VITAMIN B COMPLEX about 4-6 per day to support the nerves, since that is the site of the infection
Silver Guard Gel can be used externally on the rash for the pain.
I have seen so many people report success from this program that I have lost track of them, but here is a a recent testimonial from about a month ago:
A lady in her 80’s was suffering greatly with shingles. The rash went from her belly button and around to and up her back. She had been going to the doctor for help for some time, and was on mediations, but nothing was helping. She went on the above program, and took some Chinese Mineral Chi for minerals. The shingles all went away.

A lady worked in an office where mold/mildew was a serious problem. When I saw her she was feeling miserable with an allergic reaction which wouldn’t go away. Her eyes were red and runny, and she had to constantly wipe her red, runny nose. I could see that she had a respiratory infection, and that it was a “wet” condition. That calls for AL-C. So she used AL-C, 4 capsules 3 times a day for the allergic wet condition, and Echinacea and Golden seal capsules, 8 per day, for the infection. In a few days she was fine.
My experience: This winter I got home from a trip, and was very tired. I got a bad cold and my nose was constantly running down the back of my throat, causing it to feel very sore and raw. I was using infection fighting herbs, but thought maybe I’d try the Chinese ones for myself to see what would happen. I used the AL-C, since I had a wet condition. The first day, my nose stopped running down my throat, so my throat started to feel better in a matter of hours. I continued using my Echinacea and Golden Seal capsules for the infection, and got better quickly.

High Blood Pressure

I was contacted by a man whose back was badly injured in a trucking accident. He was in a lot of pain, and had difficulty walking and sleeping. Since the accident his blood pressure had shot right up, and his doctor wanted to put him on blood pressure medication. I asked him if he had high blood pressure before the accident and he said he didn’t. Obviously his arteries hadn’t suddenly gotten plugged up, so I knew it must be the stress of the accident and the pain that were causing his adrenal glands to work overtime. When we are stressed, our adrenal glands signal our kidneys to hang onto more fluid, to raise blood pressure to cope with the “fight or flight.” The Chinese recognize the balance between the adrenals and kidneys, so I thought maybe K-C would balance his system. He used the K-C, 4 capsules 3 times a day with meals, and a few things for stress and minerals. His blood pressure came right down to normal in a short time. His doctor was amazed.

This is the first Chinese formula I had experience with. It is for an over-worked liver trying to detoxify. It seems to be very good for skin conditions.
My daughter, then 16, had eczema on her hands. Her fingers were scaly and cracked, and would weep and sometimes even bleed. She had tried some herbs, but with no success. Finally she said, “Mom, I’m going to go to a REAL doctor with this problem.” I told her to go ahead—I was quite sure what would happen. (ie nothing) When she came home from the doctor, she looked very discouraged. She said the doctor said she had eczema and she would have to live with it the rest of her life. For occasional relief, cortisone crème could be used. Soon after that NSP introduced the Chinese line of herbal products. I brought home a bottle of LIV-C, and she tried it. Within a week her eczema was cleared up. (Note: Super Omega 3, 3 per day, and Burdock, about 6 per day can be used with the LIV-C with good results.)
