I’m always on the lookout for a small, family owned business that I can not only shop with personally but that I can recommend to all of you. Sometimes these companies offer a specific food product. Sometimes they are a supplier of my beloved coconut oil. And other times they are natural health products in various forms.
I’m super picky about which companies and which products I share on my site. I refuse to write about a company or product that I have not had a personal experience with. I never accept a sponsored post for some random business I know nothing about. And I certainly won’t place an advertisement for a product I can’t stand behind.
The world of herbal and natural supplements is a little tricky. There are certainly several high quality companies out there and I shop with several myself. It’s hard to recommend one company as my “go-to” for everything under the sun. But there are a few out there that I believe stand out, at least from my ridiculously high standards.
Native Remedies is one of these companies.
I’ll be honest. I had seen my newest affiliate partner mentioned here and there. I may have even chanced upon their website. But for some reason the website itself didn’t catch my eye and so I left without really looking around. I regret this…
You see, I was approached by Native Remedies in late 2014. Although I have shied away from doing a lot of reviews as of late, I decided to give their site a good read and see if it might be worth trying a few of their products. Well, let’s just say I got lost on there and in a good way!
I was absolutely floored by the unique selection of natural herbal supplements and homeopathic medicines. Truly. There are some really, really interesting products. Products that I think a lot of you would be interested in and benefit from (especially as you look forward to your 2015 health goals).
Have attention problems? Mental fatigue? An impaired ability to focus? There are a bazillion various formulas that can help. From a formula designed to support alertness and endurance during long study sessions to another formula that addresses ADD issues, Native Remedies has just about every permutation of natural support for learning, focus, and memory. Adults and children will certainly benefit from any number of these remedies.
So maybe everything is good in the brain department. Perhaps your issues are more mood and anxiety related. Well, never fear. There are about 35 DIFFERENT options for you to try. Now all of these won’t necessary apply to your specific needs but doesn’t it feel good to know that there is such a wide variety out there. Some of the supplements that intrigued me were the Bad Dream Sprinkles, SocialFear Relief Pellets, Anger Soothe, Tula Tantrum Tamer, Agora Fear Relief, and Melancholy Lift. All of these, plus the rest of the Mood and Tension product lineup, really got my attention. It wasn’t just the ingredient list and how they were formulated but it was how targeted the formulas are. I have seen my fair share or tinctures and pellets and while they may have some specific herbs or flower essences in them that target the specific issue, they usually are a bit more “generic,” able to be used for multiple conditions. Not the formulas from Native Remedies. Nope. They go in and get a very specific job done. To me, that is money well spent.
Now I could spend another 2,000 words pontificating on the stellar line up of products in all 30 of their categories. But I want to get down to the business of sharing my experience with the products I tried. But before I do, in case curiosity is getting the better of you, here is a screen shot with their amazing product category list.
Let’s talk about my personal opinion about the five products I reviewed. First, I actually didn’t try any of them myself. I know, that sounds a bit odd but keep reading and you will learn why.
My daughter has ALWAYS had sleep issues. I won’t go into the root cause and how we have supported better sleep but let’s just say that every day is a battle. A battle. And so I am always on the lookout for new options to add to our arsenal. (Plus I secretly hope that something will actually work long term!)
Native Remedies sent me their Sleep UltraPack for Kids. This includes the Triple Complex Sleep Tonic, Serenite Jr., and Bad Dream Sprinkles. Now I’ll admit, I was not optimistic that this would be the answer I was looking for but I was hoping that it would help. I am pleased to report that after two months of consistently using the Triple Complex Sleep Tonic and Serenite Jr., my daughter is not only having an easier time falling asleep but she is getting more restful sleep. No more waking up all night, no more rolling around the bed unable to fall into a peaceful slumber. My little girl is finally able to relax into sleep.
Now, things aren’t perfect. There are things that can totally undo her improved sleep patterns but overall, these two products have done more for her than anything else I have tried. Let’s look at them a bit deeper.
Triple Complex Sleep Tonic
This is a safe, non-addictive, natural remedy containing 100% homeopathic ingredients especially selected to temporarily reduce sleeplessness. It helps to balance the hormones involved in sleep patterns, plus relaxes tension and increases drowsiness for effective, temporarily relief. It also supports routine balance of cell salts in the body. Triple Complex Sleep Tonic is taken internally and restores rejuvenation through restful sleep. Presented in liquid form, it's easy to ingest and hassle-free with no artificial colors or preservatives.
Serenite Jr. is a 100% safe, non-addictive, natural herbal remedy specially formulated to promote nighttime harmony in children and to assist parents in their task of naturally settling fussy little ones with occasional nighttime restlessness.
Serenite Jr. can safely be used by all children and babies over the age of 6 months and is gentle and non-addictive. It is easy to administer in convenient drop form and may be used at night whenever needed. It may also be combined the Triple Complex Sleep Tonic™ for everyday use to promote ongoing sleep health.
I am now a huge believer in these two natural, gentle sleep support tinctures. I am going to continue giving them to my daughter and I am quite optimistic that the results will just get better and better.
So what about those Bad Dream Sprinkles?
Well, first, let me tell you what they are.
Bad Dream Sprinkles is a safe, non-addictive, natural remedy containing 100% homeopathic ingredients selected to temporarily relieve symptoms of bad dreams in children, and temporarily improve sleep patterns in toddlers and children for restorative REM sleep.
Bad Dream Sprinkles is formulated by a clinical psychologist and contains ingredients traditionally used to soothe emotional turmoil and temporarily promote nighttime comfort in distressed children. This natural remedy can be used regularly before bedtime for children who tend to have nightmares, or to settle insecurity in upset children who wake up from a bad dream in the middle of the night.
Sounds a bit far-fetched right? I thought so too but my daughter wrestles with bad day-dreams and bad nightmares. So I figured it wouldn’t hurt to at least give them a try. Well, I don’t know if it was the actual formula or just the idea that these Bad Dream Sprinkles would work but they certainly helped ease my daughter’s mind when bad thoughts and images were pervading her sleep and sense of calamity. She settles back into sleep rather quickly and about 60% of the time has no memory of her nightmare. This is huge folks. She used to remember 100% of her dreams and they would haunt her for weeks. Even the nightmares or bad dreams she does remember don’t seem to have as big of an impact on her during her waking hours. I am finding that she is having fewer and fewer continuations of her nightmares during the day as bad day-dreams. So these Bad Dream Sprinkles are a huge win in my book! Now, if only they could formulate a dream sprinkles for adults. You know – white sandy beaches…warm tropical waters…reggae music surrounding me… Sigh.
Obviously I am a huge fan of the sleep support for children. I have no doubt that ALL of their sleep support products work well. So if you or your child is struggling in this department, it is worth giving their formulas a try.
We have cats. My husband is allergic to cats. My daughter likes to snuzzle her face right into our cats’ fur which leads to major fits of sneezing and mucus production. I love my cats and have had them all for over 15 years. Clearly they are not going anywhere. So what are the two allergic members of my household supposed to do?
Grab the bottle of AllergyEase Animal Hair & Dander! This is a miracle in a little dark bottle. I was stunned at how quickly this relieved their ongoing symptoms. While it did take a few days to build up in their systems, once it hit the sweet spot, it did some solid work. The snot faucet was turned off. The non-stop sneezing subsided. The itching was no more. The watery eyes were a thing of the past. Oh, it just melted my heart to see my family cat-allergy free and actually able to enjoy all the love our kitties have to give. This products I great because it works to relieve symptoms caused by animal dander, hair, and feathers. So whether you have a dog, cat, bird, or other small animal, AllergyEase Animal Hair & Dander should be able to offer tons of relief. I imagine it would pair very well with Native Remedies’ herbal AllergiClear™, which helps the body maintain normal histamine levels.
After trying four different people products from Native Remedies, it was time to give their pet division (PetAlive) a fair shake. As the market-leading brand of natural remedies for pets, they ensure the highest level of quality, safety and effectiveness. From fast-acting symptom relief using their homeopathic remedies to improved long-term health with our herbal supplements, their products help cats, dogs, horses and even small pets live healthier, happier lives – naturally! This sounds pretty darn good right?
I have a sweet kitty with thyroid issues. I didn’t like the idea of having to medicate him for the rest of his days but thyroid problems in cats don’t end well. And so, I gave him his thyroid meds. And then I stopped. Long story. Anyway, it was obvious that he was not faring well without the meds but he also seemed to struggle while on them. Ugg. Not a good issue to have.
I decided it was worth a shot to try Thyro-Pet. This herbal supplement for thyroid health in dogs and cats:
• Supports a healthy thyroid
• Supports healthy energy levels and weight
• Maintains production of thyroid hormones already within the normal range
• Supports healthy thyroid functioning
You give your kitty a couple of drops 2-3 times per day in food. I cut right to the chase and just squirted it right in my kitty’s mouth. It was no problem. This kitty is easy like that. Now I still need to get blood work done to see just how well this product is helping BUT I certainly have noticed an improved sense of well-being in my little furry lovebug. He seems happier. He gets up and come over to you whereas before, it just took too much effort. His hunger seems to be controlled better as well.
I am cautiously optimistic that this product will be able to support him for the remainder of his time with me. At the very least, I feel like it would work well in concert with the prescription feline thyroid medications.
