“For many years I have dealt with neuropathy and neither over the counter or prescription medications have provided any relief from nerve pain or discomfort. That is, until I started applying Lisa Bedner’s Herbal Salve for Joints, Whenever I am asked for a recommendation for the best topical salve for neuropathy, without hesitation, I tell those asking to find Lisa Bedner and get her Herbal Salve for Joints.” – S. GILBERT, GAINESBORO, TN

“I want to send you a quick note about your skin lesion salve. It’s my miracle salve. I’ve had dry, itchy, scaly patches on my scalp for several years if not a lot longer. I’d pick at them, and the spots got worse this fall. But I wanted to stop the picking, so I ordered your salve. Somehow just one application of the salve ended the problem. They’re utterly gone. I keep waiting for an opportunity to use more of the salve but I haven’t needed to use it on my scalp. Am saving it for other needs and thinking I ought to try it on cat scratches. I’m sending my heartfelt thanks for your herbal remedy.” – Margeaux E. Knoxville, TN

We sell a variety of Parasite Cleanses, depending on the age, allergies, medical history and digestive system of the individual. Please contact us via email: pipsiss@yahoo.com so we can determine which cleanse is best for you.

In traditional Native American Medicine, a parasite cleanse begins any treatment for serious or chronic illness. Parasites are not always visible in bowel movements. Anyone who eats meat or dairy products, drinks city or well water, or is exposed to any other toxins in the environment is at risk for parasites. Travel to foreign countries also increases risk. A parasite cleanse process is simple, painless, and usually has little or no side effects. A parasite cleanse also prepares the bowel and makes it more receptive to absorbing other herbs.

One of our Parasite Cleanse packs contains the full dosage for one treatment for an adult. Dosage is determined by age and weight. We also include instructions for before, during, and after the cleanse. Parasite Cleanse instructions and dosages are for adults. Please consult your health care practitioner for pediatric usage.

Ingredients: (may include all or some of these herbs) Artemesia absynthium, Artemesia annua, Chenopodium ambrosoides, Juglans nigra, and Syzygium aromaticum. The Artemesia’s and Chenopodium work on active parasites, Juglans nigra works on dormant parasites, and Syzygium aromaticum work on parasite eggs and egg casings. It is important to take these herbs in a combination of particular proportons. It is also important to do no more than one cleanse per month, and 3 cleanses per year.

One treatment per Pack plus instructions: 1 pack $18.00 each 2 or more packs per order $15.00 each – PLUS $5 Shipping for 1-4 Cleanses
