What do you have on hand?

Do you keep food on hand in case you get hungry? Do you have clothing (at least one extra set) in case you need to change your outfit? How about soap? You know, just in case you’d like to be clean? Of course you do. You probably also pay your utility bills just in case you need to use the phone…air conditioning…water.

You may even have a spare tire in your vehicle - just in case.

You like to be prepared for the expected and the unexpected.

What about in matters relating to your health? Do you have non toxic ways to deal with insect bites, the flu, or those cuts, scrapes, and burns that invariable happen in life? You know what I mean…

The chiggers you and you husband got into on a hiking expedition all because you had only enough insect repellant to use on the children.

The bad toothache & you can't get to the dentist right away.

The allergies that just won’t go away and you can’t sleep at night.

As often as I get calls/questions about chronic or preventive natural health care, I get calls about the acute, the little emergencies in life. Often it’s a search through the cupboards to see what will suffice because there isn’t time to go somewhere to get what would have been best, most helpful.

This issue of Tools for Health shares a few ideas of things you may want to keep on hand in the event of the unexpected…which of course should be expected!

In This Issue

  • An Herbal First-Aid Kit
  • Resources for Your Own Research
  • Reminders about classes, online classes/chats, teleconference calls, etc.

NOTE: To receive the best results I recommend only high quality resources. Look for herbs, supplements, and other resources mentioned in Tools for Health at My NSP Natural Health Coach and Natural Health Coach for Women.

An Herbal First-Aid Kit

Obviously, what you have in your Herbal First-aid kit will be somewhat different than what I have. We all live in differing climates, family situations, and health circumstances.

Here are a few of the items I keep on hand, several of which also stay in my purse. Use these ideas as a spring board to flesh out your own ‘on hand’ supply.

Some Basics

This is just a sampling of what I have in our family Herbal First-Aid Kit. Many, many more possibilities can be looked at depending on your needs.

Resources for Your Own Research

  • Sunshine Sharing: A monthly four page offline newsletter packed with great health information. I send these at no cost to everyone who is a Nature’s Sunshine member through me.

  • I’ve already mentioned She has wonderful information on essential oils.

  • An excellent in-depth resource with a handy search option. Lots of information available even for non members.

  • The Complete Guide to Nature’s Sunshine Products, by Steven Horne. This has been an invaluable resource. Even in the unlikely even you would choose not to use Nature’s Sunshine products, you would do well to follow the principles in this book for overall health and healing.

    I have 5 copies left of the original edition I would be happy to share with you at $25. Offer available only until the supply is gone, obviously. Call Natural Health Connections at 863-676-8736 or mail your check (made out to Teri Hayes) along with shipping information to

    Natural Health Connections
    C/O Teri Hayes
    2537 Fox Run Court
    Lake Wales, Florida 33898-8999
    Or you can purchase the 2nd edition at Steven’s web site for around $30 plus shipping and handling.

Reminders about classes, online classes/chats, teleconference calls, etc.

Natural Health Connections currently offers two online classes/chats at the following times:

Wednesdays, 3:00 PM Easter Standard Time

Simply sign in; you don’t need a password, just your name.

Thursdays, 9:00 PM Eastern Standard Time

Again, simply sign in, you don’t need a password.

Reminders are sent to those who live in the local area about classes here. If you’d like to be on that list, reply to this email and we’ll be happy to add you.

Did you listen to the June NSP teleconference call? I always learn something new, and highly recommend this resource.
Click on ‘Opportunity’ then click on ‘Events’ for the upcoming schedule of calls and other happenings.

Have a healthy day,
