A NOTE FROM RANDAL

Hello everyone,

I am really amazed that the last issue and this issue contained mainstream headlines for herbal products. Last week's issue was on cancer and Anamu and this week morning sickness is being tied to the herb Ginger. Sure lends credence to the old time suggestion, drink ginger ale for a queasy stomach.

However, back then they included some real ginger in the ginger ale products. These days, I think the only way to get ginger in your ginger ale is to go to a health food store and read the labels before you make your purchase.

Many years back we won a cruise with Nature's Sunshine and we encountered some rough waters. I began to get sick at my stomach from sea sickness. Nature's Sunshine had given us a gift bag when we boarded the ship. Inside the bag they had included a bottle of ginger capsules. Upon taking them, I noticed in a short period of time complete relief. Sure made me a believer of ginger and motion sickness problems.

Other individuals, I know personally, have had problems with car sickness and taking the ginger they have reported that the car sickness has improved greatly.

On a personal note, we are both doing well here in Virginia and we should break ground next month on the building of our new home. We have had some cool weather here off and on. Looking forward to fall coming our way.

Until next time,


Randal

TREATING MORNING SICKNESS, GINGERLY - By Jennifer Thomas

THURSDAY, Oct. 3 (HealthScoutNews) -- Pregnancy gives rise to a host of wonderful emotions, such as joy and excitement. It's also a good excuse to eat ice cream every night.

However, expectant mothers must often cope with a very unpleasant side-effect: morning sickness.

An estimated 60 percent to 80 percent of pregnant women suffer from morning sickness, which is actually a misnomer because the nausea and vomiting associated with it can last all day long.

Fortunately, relief may be on the way: A new study has found the herb ginger can relieve the queasiness in many women.

POLICOSANOL: THE NEW NATURAL CHOLESTEROL FIGHTER - by Sid Shastri

For the past few years, the most potent and popular method of naturally reducing cholesterol was through red yeast rice extract supplements. Red yeast rice extracts contain a powerful cholesterol-reducing agent called lovastatin. Lovastatin is one of three natural statins; the other two are simvastatin and pravastatin. Lovastatin can be manufactured by fermenting red yeast (Monascus purpureas) on rice in a very specific manner to yield statins.

The FDA has warned companies marketing red yeast containing lovastatin that these products are unapproved new drugs since traditional red yeast (such as that sold in Chinese groceries) contain undetectable or trace amounts of lovastatin. Meanwhile, the National Nutritional Foods Association and House Government Reform Committee Chair Dan Burton have asked the FDA to clarify whether red yeast rice extract can continue to be sold in the U.S. Though it appears that the legal issue regarding red yeast supplements continues, there is an effective and safer alternative: policosanol.
