A New Herbal Tonic for all Seasons

by Dr. Bruce Baar

In the early spring of 1930, a young woman of 19 years of age was distraught. She was suffering from a variety of serious skin eruptions and was desperately seeking advice from Edgar Cayce. The pimples and boils were affecting her self-image.

New Seasons, Herbal Tonic 545

The advice she was given by Edgar Cayce was to stay away from excessive sugars and a disproportionate amount of meats. She was advised to take a specific tonic 30 minutes before each meal. This tonic was said to improve her digestive and elimination issues. This tonic today is called New Seasons™ Herbal Tonic 545.

Cayce spoke about variations of this revitalizing formula in many readings, but he said this specific tonic would be “good for everyone.” Its specific use has been described to enhance eliminations, cleanse the body of accumulated toxins and energize the body.

New Seasons™ Herbal Tonic 545 Ingredients

The ingredients of New Seasons Herbal Tonic 545 are listed below with information from Edgar Cayce that may provide insight into how the formula works:

“The active principle from the wild cherry bark with the other ingredients is a stimulation to the lungs, throat and bronchials, and those organs above the diaphragm.” (Cayce)

“Wild cherry bark is a direct activative force upon the pneumogastrics and the pulmonary system.” (Cayce)

“The sarsaparilla works with the gastric juices of the stomach, and the eliminations in the peristaltic movement through the intestinal tract.” (Cayce)

“The yellow dock root is an emit and blood purifier, an active principle with the secretions of the liver.” (Cayce)

“The prickly ash bark acts directly with the activative forces in the liver itself, in the gall duct, and as a stimulant to the pancreas and spleen’s activity.” (Cayce)

“Whenever the dose is taken shake the solution well together, and the dose would be half a teaspoonful four times each day, BEFORE the meals and before retiring. This will assist in clarifying the whole system…” (Cayce)

New Seasons™ Herbal Tonic 545, a tonic that is said to be “good for everyone” and “will assist in clarifying the whole system,” is a wonderful addition to our personal health collection.

Looking For Eczema Relief Products That Actually Work?

by Dr. Bruce Baar

Anyone dealing with Eczema knows how frustrating it can be to try lotion after lotion without experiencing any improvement. Because there are many different types of Eczema, it can prove difficult to diagnose the specific cause. Characterized by the appearance of small blisters and red, itchy, crusted and even thickened plaques of skin, Eczema areas often benefit from the consistent application of a moisturizing cream.  Baar Products has formulated a cream for eczema relief with a blend of powerful herbs that relieve itching and pain, and topically supporting the body’s healing process.

Diet and lifestyle factors are also important to consider. Because Eczema is often linked to allergies, food intolerances and digestive imbalances, it can be helpful to incorporate remedies that address these internal issues and start you on the road to health. Baar’s Slippery Elm Bark Powder and Capsules are products formulated to both soothe and strengthen digestive and intestinal difficulties.

Two Options for Natural Eczema Relief

Slippery Elm Bark: The Powder

Eczema Relief provided by Baar's Slippery Elm Powder

Because the skin is the body’s largest elimination organ, it’s not surprising that it suffers when toxins flow through the bloodstream. Slippery Elm Bark is a natural herbal remedy that coats and soothes the mucous membranes of the intestinal system, while absorbing toxins. Beneficial for both Psoriasis and Eczema, Slippery Elm Bark is easy to mix in drinking water or take as a capsule.

Our Nature’s Blessing Slippery Elm Bark is one of our top selling products. When you shop Nature’s Blessing, you know you’re getting a commitment to quality that exceeds other brands on the market. This supplement is GMP manufactured, shrink wrapped for freshness and backed by a trusted brand and a knowledgeable customer service staff.

The Capsule

Slippery Elm Bark Capsules for Eczema Relief

While some customers prefer to order the Slippery Elm Bark powder and mix it into water or use it to make tea, others are looking for a simpler, quicker method. If you like the idea of just taking a few capsules each day to help relieve Eczema, then this is the product for you!

Historically, Slippery Elm has been prized for its mucilage content. Mucilage forms a soothing gelatinous fiber that when ingested, creates a protective layer to the mucous linings of the body, soothing irritated and inflamed membranes. Experience the benefits of this amazing natural remedy in either a powder or capsule form and begin to restore the body’s natural cleansing, digestive and detoxification processes.

Choosing Baar

Native to India, Africa and Central America, Castor oil is a vegetable oil obtained by pressing the seeds of the Castor plant. Castor seeds are rich in precious oil, which makes up 50%-60% of their weight. When pressure is applied to the seed, the oil with all of its unique nutrients, minerals and essential fatty acids are released. The oil can range in color from pale to light yellow and has virtually no taste or odor.

…From Ancient Remedy to Modern Marvel

Ancient Egyptians were the first to record the use of Castor Oil for medicinal purposes, and since then it has been used by many cultures who attest to its therapeutic value. Castor oil is also referred to as Palma Christi, because the shape of the plant’s leaves were thought to resemble the palm of Christ and because of the incredible healing power it possesses.

One of the most effective methods of use is through topical application as castor oil packs. The pack is generally made of an absorbent material like wool or cotton flannel. The Castor Oil is poured onto this material and then laid directly onto the body. Heating pads are especially helpful for this process because they warm the oil and allow it to penetrate more deeply. These types of applications should be done regularly and can last anywhere from an hour to two hours. Topical application of the oil, using a castor oil pack, is not only relaxing but produces excellent results. After removing the pack, clean the area with CastorWash™ to remove impurities, as well as alkalize the skin.

Where Can I Get it?
