A NOTE FROM RANDAL

This newsletter and our site, The Herbs Place.com, will be undergoing some
major changes. The FDA and FTC has begun requiring websites to quit having
testimonies that mention disease names. In addition, we are no longer able
to mention any historical use of an herb mentioned with a disease name
either.

A further explanation follows in the Success Stories section below.

Thanks again for all your encouragement and support.

HERB/VITAMIN NEWS

MAGNESIUM

Magnesium has been linked as beneficial to many illnesses. Our diet is
certainly not providing what it used to when the soils had the minerals in
them that were needed to put minerals in our food. That’s why
supplementation is so critical. Here’s some ideas on the benefits of
Magnesium.

PMS
A diet high in magnesium is recommended for women with PMS
as studies indicate that chronic intracellular magnesium depletion
can cause PMS symptoms.

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
In a hypertension trial, at the National Cardiovascular Center in Osaka,
Japan, supplements of 480 milligrams of magnesium were given to 60 men
and women who had high blood pressure for 8 weeks. The study found that
although the women,s blood pressure remained unchanged, all 34 men
experienced a small but significant reduction in the blood pressure
during the supplementation. They averaged a drop of 2 to 4 millimeters
of mercury (mmHg) in their systolic blood pressure and 1.5 to 2 mmHg
reduction in diastolic pressure.

Small as the observed reductions are, they may still be significant,
according to the National High Blood Pressure Education Program. It has
been reported, “For the general population, a reduction of 3 mmHg in
systolic blood pressure would yield 11 percent fewer strokes, 7 percent
fewer coronary events, and 5 percent fewer [premature] deaths.”

DIABETES
Magnesium is a key component for carbohydrate metabolism. It can influence
the activity of insulin. Elevated glucose levels increase the loss of
magnesium in urine.

HEART DISEASE
Surveys have associated higher blood levels of magnesium with
lower risk of coronary heart disease. In addition, dietary surveys have
suggested that a higher magnesium intake is associated with a lower risk
of stroke.

HEALTH NEWS

HERBAL USE INFO NEEDED BEFORE SURGERY

Patients should be forthcoming before surgery and tell their
surgeon and anesthesiologist about all medications and
herbal supplements they are taking. An anesthesiologists
administers a number of pharmaceutical agents before, during
and after a surgical procedure. It is essential that
possible interactions with medications and herbal
supplements in the patient’s system can be monitored.

NATURAL SUCCESS STORIES

In this issue I have left out the success stories on purpose. I want to
call your attention to something that is happening in the natural health
industry. The FTC and FDA have a joint project called Operation Cure All.
This project started out with great intentions of stopping many unscrupulous
manufacturers and distributors of health products. It seems that they were
making unsubstantiated health claims concerning cancer, AIDS, arthritis and
many other chronic degenerative diseases.

They contacted the various companies with an email telling them they weren’t
complying with the law. Many refused to change so they took them to court.
I believe that this is a good thing.

However, “The Herbs Place.com” has been sent one of the same emails and told
to come into compliance. We appear to not be making any outrageous claims
but instead we are being penalized for listing your success stories that
include disease names on our website and in our newsletter. It seems you
can’t list these success stories like we have been doing and have links to
the products on the same page or site. Also, you really can’t speak of
traditional uses of herbs and disease names at the same time.

I have begun to change the content of the newsletter and our web site to
come into compliance. I merely wanted you to know why the content is
changing. If you need further information check out

CELLU-SMOOTH for CELLULITE

80% of women suffer the social distress of having cellulite – unsightly fat
deposits that cause areas of the skin to look like cottage cheese. As people
age, tissues in certain parts of the body break down. Poor microcirculation
in these areas damages fatty tissue, and blood and lymphatic vessel walls
become more permeable. These vessels leak fluid into surrounding tissues,
causing congestion and swelling. This prevents nutrients like oxygen from
being carried to the tissue, hindering the drainage of toxins.

Poor elimination of toxins, especially in the lymphatic system, can cause
scarring and stretch marks as fat cells become trapped. Cellu-Smooth’s
nutrients are combined to increase circulation, mobilize fat and lymph
stores for breakdown, and protect against free-radical damage to structural
skin proteins.

Cellu-Smooth contains: Bladderwrack nourishes the thyroid, Rodiola Extract
improves strength and stamina and helps body cells generate and use energy
more effectively, Milk Thistle is a strong antioxidant to help detoxify the
liver, allowing it to properly emulsify fat, break down trapped toxins and
help remove them from the body, Ginkgo Leaves helps promote proper
circulation even to remote or problem areas, leading to improved
blood-oxygen exchange, and Rhododendron Root which helps to protect and
strengthen capillaries and promote microcirculation.

SUN GARDEN BURGERS
(from The Raw Gourmet ©1999 by Nomi Shannon)
http://www.rawgourmet.com

3 tablespoons flax seeds, ground
6 tablespoons water
1 cup carrot pulp
1 cup sunflower seeds, ground
1/2 cup finely minced celery
6 tablespoons finely minced onion (or more to taste)
2 tablespoons finely minced parsley
2 tablespoons finely minced red pepper
2 teaspoons liquid amino’s

Use an electric coffee grinder to finely grind the flax seeds and the
sunflower seeds. The carrot pulp is what is left over after you juice
carrots. If you don’t own a juicer yet, ask for carrot pulp at a juice
bar. In a blender, blend the ground flax seed and water, immediately pour
mixture into a bowl and set aside. Rinse the blender container out
immediately. In a medium size bowl, thoroughly stir together carrot pulp,
ground sunflower seeds, celery, onion, parsley, red pepper and liquid
amino’s. Add the flax seed mixture and mix thoroughly. Add more water if
necessary to make the consistency to form patties. Form into six 1/2 inch
thick patties. Dehydrate for 4-8 hours, or leave in sun until warm, or
place in warm oven for 10-15 minutes. Makes 6 patties.
