RELIEF Rx™ REMEDY FOR MUSCLES, SKIN, AND JOINTS

Dr. Hank Liers, PhD Relief Rx™ pain sore musclesOne of our suppliers recently sent me a new product sample called Relief Rx™ to evaluate. The product is a topically-applied fast-acting “Aloe vera relief gel” for sore muscles, back, joints, and skin.

ReliefRx

After I applied the gel to painful or sore spots on my body, my pain and soreness was relieved in a short time — 15 minutes or less! I was quite impressed, needless to say. The gel has no odor and after it dries, it leaves no messy oils etc. on your skin—unlike many other topical skin formulas.

Because Relief Rx™ is a new product there are no prior sales data. However, our supplier also sent product samples to many other people who agreed to try it. The results experienced by the testers were nothing short of amazing — see some of their testimonials below.

 

 

RELIEF Rx™ INGREDIENTS

Aloe vera, a primary ingredient in Relief Rx™

Aloe vera is a primary ingredient in Relief Rx™

Aloe vera (organic)

The Egyptians called Aloe vera the “plant of immortality.” Aloe has been cultivated for centuries by indigenous people from Africa to Asia, and it is revered around the world by herbalists. As such, it may be the ultimate resource nature has provided for natural health.

The aloe extract in Relief Rx™ is carefully prepared with 100% organically grown plants, then compounded with a proprietary process to provide highly bioavailable constituents, such as acemannan and a full-spectrum of natural polysaccharides. Some of the known helpful effects of acemannan include:

  1. Helps cells to be more resistant to viruses and pathogenic bacteria.
  2. Improves overall cellular metabolism and functioning.
  3. Promotes healthy inflammation response.
  4. Provides critical lubrication of joints.
  5. Reduces pain.
  6. Improves vascular flow.
  7. Reduces scarring.
  8. Improves healthy macrophage activity.
  9. Increases the body’s own production of interferon, interleukins.
  10. Increases the number and activity of killer T-cell and increase monocyte activity.
  11. Fights fungal infections, such as: Athlete’s foot, Ringworm, Pruritus anivalvae, Balnea, Essential Pruritus, and Vaginal yeast infections/
  12. Helps athletic injuries such as: Muscle cramps, Sprains, Strains, Bruises, Swelling, Soreness, Tendonitis, and Bursitis.
  13. Helps with harmful organisms.
  14. Speeds wound healing..
  15. Anti-aging properties. Stimulate fibroblasts to release collagen and elastin to make new tissue.

You will feel the quality of the Aloe vera at work with every application.

Hemp

Hemp

Hemp Oil:
The hemp oil in Relief Rx™ is extracted from the flowers and leaves of the revered hemp plant. It is especially rich in bioactive molecules (without any psychotropic effects or side effects) and has gained worldwide recognition as a natural and potent therapeutic nutrient.

Select hemp oil molecules interact with our inherent endogenous cannabinoid (endocannabinoid) system to carry out beneficial and protective physiological reactions. First discovered in the late 1980s, the endocannabinoid system supports the body’s complex regulatory mechanisms including mood, sleep, appetite, hormones, pain, and immune response.

Relief Rx™ utilizes an advanced proprietary science that greatly enhances the efficacy of hemp oil to achieve results that are unequaled by conventional products.

White Willow Bark Extract (Salix alba)

White Willow Bark Extract (Salix alba)

White Willow Bark Extract (Salix alba):
A native of Europe and Asia, the name of this deciduous tree comes from the lightly colored undersides of its slender leaves. Willow may in fact be one of the oldest remedies, used in ancient Egypt and China as early as 500 BCE.

Healers applying skin and beauty treatments understood that willow bark was an important ingredient in the support of natural health. Careful processing ensures that the willow extract in Relief Rx™ contains the highest purity of ingredients. Benefits of using white willow bark extract include:

  • Anti-aging: A 2010 study reported that salicin can help reduce the appearance of skin aging. Researchers applied a serum product containing 0.5 percent salicin on the faces of women aged 35 to 70, every day for 12 weeks. Results showed improvements in the appearance of wrinkles, pore size, radiance, and overall appearance after only one week.

  • Helps cleanse oily skin: Willow bark extract naturally exfoliates skin and clears pores to give skin a clearer, healthier appearance.
  • Smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles: The same exfoliating action that reduces clogged pores also helps smooth the look of fine line and wrinkles. Willow bark is a source of natural hydroxy acids that gently exfoliate. The result is smoother, softer skin.
  • Antioxidants: Like most plant extracts, willow bark contains flavonoids and tannins—powerful antioxidants that help protect skin from environmental stressors.
Relief Rx™ contains important trace minerals

Relief Rx™ contains important trace minerals

Ionic Trace Minerals Blend:
There is a great deal of evidence that the healthy function of the body is strongly influenced by electrical impulses. That is, our bodies use electrical impulse pathways, and electrolytes and ions are the conductors of these currents maintaining a smoothly running body. Ions provide the necessary charge of both positive and negative molecules that keep the electrical component of the human battery “charged” and working in top form.

The human skin is the largest organ of the body and is highly involved in the detoxification and maintenance processes of health. Skin not only excretes and eliminates toxins; it also has a tremendous capacity to absorb health supportive substances.

Clinical researchers have continued to document the clinical findings that have been observed for decades when it comes to the healing properties of topical minerals. Many of the studies on therapeutic baths have used minerals from the Dead Sea as well as the Great Salt Lake. Of particular interest are the powerful effects of these salts that exhibit favorable effects in inflammatory disease.

In one study, 103 arthritic patients received various bath treatments with ionic trace minerals. The study showed impressive results and those with the greatest physical limitation had the most pronounced improvement. A large percentage of the patients reported having less pain, improved mobility and were able to decrease analgesic use. In a different double-blind study, the use of warm mineral baths demonstrated a lasting effect for patients suffering from degenerative arthritis.

In a clinical trial conducted by a leading research university in Germany, patients with atopic (eczema) skin disorders immersed their arms in a mineral rich bath. The participants immersed one arm in tap water the other in the therapeutic mineral rich bath. The findings showed that skin hydration was improved and skin roughness and inflammation was reduced when immersed in the mineral rich water.

RELIEF Rx™ USAGE

Direction for use:
Apply a generous amount of gel to stressed muscles and joints as needed for soothing harmonious comfort, creating a moist surface. Allow the moisture to absorb naturally into the skin and air dry on its own. Keep tightly sealed and away from children. For external use only.

Ingredients:
Purified water, Glucomannan, Organic Aloe vera, Ionic Trace Elements Blend, Hemp Oil, White Willow Bark Extract, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate.

RELIEF Rx™ TESTIMONIALS

Relief Rx™ is a new product with no prior sales data. The product was sent out to a number of people who agreed to try it. The results obtained were amazing as shown in the testimonials given below. Personally, we can confirm that the product works extremely well for a variety of muscle and joint issues – usually providing sustained relief within a short time after applying the gel to the skin.

1. Ole G., Topanga, California: “I am an 88-year old retired mechanical engineer with multiple knee, hip and upper back chronic discomfort, that is UNTIL I FOUND Relief Rx. All of it was gone in a matter of minutes. I now use this gel only when I over exert myself during yard work and gardening. I love this product…!!”

2. Paul G.: “In all of my 35+ years in the fitness facility business I never saw a relief product that works as good as Relief Rx™. This stuff is on the verge of being miraculous……truly amazing”

3. Charlie L: “I had a slight tear in the meniscus of my left knee that bothered me if I stood or sat for long. I applied Relief Rx™, and was amazed. In less than 20 seconds – literally, my knee was back to normal. I wasn’t expecting it to work that well or that quickly.”

4. Katie L (49): “I have used the Relief Rx™ many times when my muscles have been sore or my joints achy and each time, within minutes, the pain has diminished if not gone away completely. I don’t really understand why this happens, I just know it does. I appreciate the simplicity of the liquid – it is not thick, or smelly or difficult to use. And it seems to absorb quickly. It does not leave behind residue, any fragrance or greasy feeling. So I’m not so sure what is in it. I just know that it works wonders. Thank you for bringing this product to market. I’ve thrown out all of my other products and just use this.”

5. J.G.: “I have had severe pain in my right hand for over two years from using the mouse, pain in my arm, and recently I had surgery and developed a very uncomfortable pain on my right side from lying in bed. Every time I use Relief Rx™ I am amazed at how quickly the pain subsides and disappears. Thank you for this wonderful product!”

6. Dr. Chuck A.: “I applied Relief Rx™ on a patient that had nagging back issues. She told me she had “immediate and significant relief”. When can I get more?”

7. Mike G.: “I have played handball for 50 years. Over that time I have suffered right shoulder problem from injury, strain from over use, and tension from rotator cuff surgery. Over the past 15 years I have had to change shots due to shoulder problems and limitations. I applied Relief Rx™ and within 30 minutes I was 100%! I can hit all of the shots on the handball court like I could 15 years ago.”

8. U.: “This is the most amazing relief product I have ever experienced. I have disturbing problem in my back and it prevents me from getting a full nights sleep. Last night is the first night of continuous sleep I’ve had in more than a year.”

ALKALINIZE RAPIDLY USING pH ADJUST

Fred Liers PhD alkalinize rapidly using pH AdjustYou’ve heard it before. Eat more fruits and vegetables to be alkaline. Consume more alkaline-forming foods. Eat fewer acid-forming foods to avoid acidosis. Balance your pH levels.

Maybe you’ve even studied lists or charts of acid- and alkaline-forming foods to encourage dietary choices for creating proper acid-alkaline balance.

It’s no secret that acid-alkaline balance is important for health. In fact, it is well established that pH levels in the range of 7.35–7.45 provide many benefits. The facts are the facts, and the science is sound.

ph value foods acid alkaline ph adjust

Consuming more alkaline-forming fruits and vegetables can help maintain proper pH in the body.

Yet, if creating alkalinity were that simple, then why are most individual’s pH levels acidic instead of alkaline? What can be done to remedy the endemic (and epidemic!) levels of acidosis we see today?

Consuming potassium-rich fruits and vegetables remains the most important means for maintaining alkaline conditions in the body. However, taking pH Adjust powder supplement is an effective adjunct not only for helping balance pH levels, but rapidly producing an alkaline state conducive to optimal health.

pH BALANCE BASICS

A pH of 7 is considered neutral. A slightly alkaline pH level – like 7.4 – is best for health, of course.

Known benefits of ideal pH levels (slightly alkaline) include:

• Optimal function of enzymes
• Proper mineral retention, including electrolyte reserves
• Better tissue oxygenation
• Beneficial effects on microbiome

Dietary intake of alkaline-forming foods is the most obvious way of supporting proper pH. Consuming a diet rich in alkaline forming foods, such as fruits and vegetables (particularly leafy green vegetables) and vegetable juices are proven means for successfully balancing the effects of acid-forming foods like meats, and most grains and starches (simple carbohydrates).

Vegetables and fruits contain potassium. Evidence shows that potassium is critical for producing alkaline conditions in the body.

Known factors producing overly acidic conditions in the body include consuming meats, sugar, processed foods, and simple carbohydrates like wheat, corn, rice, and most pastas and breads.

pH BALANCE ESSENTIAL FOR HEALTH

Despite the certain knowledge that consuming vegetables, vegetable juices, and certain fruits helps balance pH, most people’s pH levels are overly acidic. I personally know many people, often vegetarians, whose pH levels are perfectly within the range suggested for optimal health.

Yet, I also see that most people do not consume sufficient alkaline-forming foods (specifically vegetables and vegetable juices), and therefore I am not surprised that the pH levels of most people are overly acidic.

What people in the thick of life may not realize is the degree to which acidosis—chronic or otherwise—is taking a toll of their health. And how maintaining alkalinity can improve health, longevity and quality of life. Or how easy it can be to create and sustain alkaline conditions using diet and dietary supplements.

MODERN TIMES: CHRONIC ACIDOSIS FOR MOST

Government statistics show that individuals by far do not consume recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables. It makes me wonder what foods the average individual or family consumes daily. Fast foods, fried foods, GMO foods, sugar-laden foods, and processed foods, as well as artificial additives, pesticides and agricultural chemicals are not conducive to alkaline conditions.

Neither are high-nitrogen foods, like red meats and most high-protein animal foods, especially when over-consumed—and not balanced by potassium-rich plant foods.

It seems the diet and lifestyle of most people are such that they are overly acidic. This may be considered a symptom of “modern” life. Yet, while the acid-alkaline balance of ancient diets—and even the diets of Westerners into the 20th century may have been fundamentally better (i.e., more alkaline-forming), the principles of pH balance remain the same. The pH levels of individuals subsisting on grains in any historical period would be relatively acidic.

Beyond low potassium intake from vegetables and fruits, other factors associated with over acidity include alcohol and most pharmaceuticals, antibiotics, artificial sweeteners, preservatives and artificial colorings, low nutrient intake, chemical exposure, pollution, lack of exercise, shallow breathing, and chronic stress.

Given the prevalence of these factors, is it any wonder that maintaining alkaline conditions in the body has become difficult for the average person?

Some effects of acidosis:

• Fatigue
• Being “out of breath” easily and asthmatic symptoms
• Muscle cramping or pain—even with little exertion
• Feeling like can’t get sufficient air (low tissue oxygenation)
• Skin problems
• Allergies
• Headaches
• Weight gain

Importantly, studies indicate that long-term acidosis is linked to certain health conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, fibromyalgia, heart disease, osteoporosis, stroke, and other adverse conditions.

HOW TO BE ALKALINE: DIET AND pH ADJUST

The answer for maintaining alkalinity is to consume plenty of potassium-rich fruits and vegetables. Most people know that it is important to eat 4–6 servings of vegetables daily. Yet, how many actually do? And why is that?

Not unlike taking daily multivitamins and sufficient quantities of basic dietary supplements, maintaining proper pH levels is easier said than done for most people. It just is.

For example, what if you normally consume sufficient amounts of fruits and vegetables, but you are traveling? Or find yourself on a given day not maintaining sufficient intake to maintain optimal pH balance? Or inadvertently become exposed to “factors” that create acidosis?

If you regularly consume sufficient levels of vegetables, vegetable juices, and certain fruits, you will most likely be slightly alkaline most of the time. If you do not, then you will either need to increase your intake of these potassium-rich foods, or try something else, or both.

How do I know this? Because despite my rather large intake of vegetables, vegetable juices, and fruits, I discovered that I am myself not always sufficiently alkaline. When I recently used litmus paper to test my pH levels, I found to my surprise that I am not *always* as alkaline as I should be.

Fortunately, my father Hank Liers, who is our company’s formulator and founder, had something brewing in his mind the last few years.

Just as I was deeply wondering how to squeeze more vegetable juices into my busy schedule…he develops a formula that forever changes my perspective on acid-alkaline balance, not to mention keeping me alkaline — like all the time.

It is amazing and it is “something else.” He calls it pH Adjust. And that is what it does—adjust your pH—and fast!

pH Adjust

pH ADJUST can safely and effective alkalinize the body.

WHAT TO EXPECT: pH ADJUST BENEFITS

After taking a single dose of pH Adjust, my pH “litmus” paper turned from light-ish green to deep purple.

After taking a dose every day for 10 days, my litmus test paper is dark blue to purple nearly all the time.

In addition, my father, Dr. Hank, has noticed that by taking a single large dose (a rounded teaspoon) every morning upon arising and measuring his urinary pH levels shortly before taking the dose, his morning pH levels are consistently in the 6.8 to 8.0 range. Before initiating this practice his morning urinary pH range was 6.2 to 6.6. Using this same protocol, my mother has experienced the same pattern of morning urinary pH values.

Of course, urinary (and salivary) pH measurements over the day will show significant variations depending upon your dietary habits. However, it was noticed that the trend was to have the pH increase over time as the protocol was rigorously followed.

What changed? Well, our pH levels have changed—toward alkalinity—for one thing. For another thing, I notice I have greater stamina, breathe easier, and just “feel” better.

Another unexpected benefit: my teeth feel stronger. Go figure! I thought about it and I see that my body must be retaining minerals better.

When the body is acidic, minerals are required to “buffer” the acidity. The body will even pull minerals from bones or teeth to buffer acidity because it tries to balance acidity any way it can.

Does this mean you can stop eating vegetables—and just take pH Adjust? Absolutely “no” because your diet remains the single most important factor in keeping your body slightly alkaline. If anything, your intake of potassium-rich fruits and vegetables (like kale and other leafy greens) should increase or at least be maintained, if it is already sufficiently abundant in these foods.

The arrival of pH Adjust just means there is a highly effective tool (supplement) to help maintain proper acid-alkaline balance beyond your diet alone. It means that whenever your pH levels dip into an acidic zone, you can rapidly and effectively return yourself to an alkaline state independently of your immediate dietary circumstances. From this perspective, pH Adjust is like an insurance policy: a useful means to attain alkalinity if and when diet alone is not enough. That’s why pH Adjust is a dietary “supplement.”

I cannot guarantee you will get the exact results I obtained. Your results will depend on your diet, level of acidity, and exposure to other factors known to determine pH levels. Nevertheless, the science behind the development of pH Adjust is based on the fact that certain key forms of minerals like potassium and sodium bicarbonate and magnesium carbonate create alkaline conditions in the body.

TELL ME MORE ABOUT pH ADJUST

pH Adjust is a fluffy, mild-tasting power formula you add to water, juice, or other liquid drinks in small amounts (about 1/4 teaspoon) that rapidly “adjusts” your pH levels toward alkaline.

pH Adjust contains potassium bicarbonate, magnesium carbonate, potassium glycinate, and sodium bicarbonate. A one gram serving (about a rounded ¼ tsp) contains about 300 mg of bicarbonate, 260 mg of carbonate, 142 mg of potassium, 105 mg of magnesium, 48 mg of sodium, and 100 mg of glycine.

Potassium, sodium, and magnesium are key minerals involved in many important functions in the body. When combined in bicarbonates (potassium & sodium), carbonates (magnesium), and glycinate (potassium) they help to adjust and balance pH levels essential to optimal body function.

You can read more in depth about pH Adjust on our product page.

pH ADJUST VERSUS SODIUM BICARBONATE (BAKING SODA)

For years, health professionals have advocated the use of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) for its alkalinizing effects and the benefits associated with balanced pH levels.

Baking soda is cheap and effective, but consuming it has drawbacks. Its key flaw is sodium. Sodium bicarbonate provides relatively too much sodium (salt), and as such, its consumption must be monitored so as to avoid elevated sodium levels. Too high sodium levels create known risks for high blood pressure (hypertension) and cardiovascular health.

pH Adjust is formulated to avoid high sodium levels. One key to the formula is its 3:1 ratio of potassium to sodium. These are balanced amounts, as well as levels the body itself favors in terms of absorption and retention. Moreover, these levels maintain a balance known to be heart-healthy and that keep the formula low in sodium, when used as directed.

Most individuals already consume sufficient (or more than sufficient) sodium, and therefore require other minerals to balance that intake. pH Adjust not only contains low levels of sodium, but also provides minerals (potassium, magnesium) needed to balance sodium levels in the body.

ph Adjust

A refreshing glass of water with pH Adjust. Can alkalinizing get any simpler?

TASTE

Taste is another advantage of pH Adjust. Baking soda literally tastes “salty” because it is full of sodium. For a long while, I used baking soda to balance my pH levels toward greater alkalinity.

I stopped taking baking soda not only because my dietary intake of alkaline-forming foods is usually sufficient (relative to the average person), but also because I no longer could stomach the salty taste. I continue to “slug” down baking soda every now and then, but I have to suppress my overriding desire to spit it out—it’s simply too salty!

Imagine me now: happily drinking my pH Adjust in water every morning (and sometimes afternoon) which tastes good! I cannot actually say it tastes like a dessert because it is more like neutral to slightly sweet in taste (partly due to its glycine content). It goes down smoothly with no detectable “salty” taste.

EVERYTHING TO LOVE IN AN ALKALINIZING FORMULA

I would say pH Adjust has everything I would ask for in an alkalinizing, pH balancing formula. It alkalinizes me–FAST! It provides critical minerals required for health in balanced amounts, including potassium and magnesium in easily assimilated forms. It is low in sodium. It tastes good. What more can you ask for?

pH Adjust probably is the most sophisticated alkalinizing formula available. Certainly it is better than calcium- and chemical-laden antacids, which I would never take anyway. pH Adjust’s elegant design makes baking soda seem plain and salty by comparison not to mention highly imbalanced in terms of its mineral content.

TRY pH ADJUST AND MEASURE YOUR pH

No one can really know the effects of such an excellent pH balancing formula as pH Adjust without accurately measuring their pH levels. That is the reason HPDI offers Hydrion litmus paper, which is simply a litmus paper for measuring pH.

Whether you use Hydrion brand papers won’t make a difference. Any good-quality litmus paper should work just fine. Use a small, one- or two-inch strip of pH paper to quickly dip into a saliva or urine sample (i.e., to test salivary or urinary pH). Hint: urinary pH tends to be more accurate because saliva tends to be affected by foods. Test salivary pH well away from meals.

hydrion litmus paper ph Adjust

Order a container or two of pH Adjust, which we’ve purposefully kept low cost so both health professionals and individuals can make it a regular part of their pH balancing regimes. At $19.95 for retail customers (and less for HPDI resellers/wholesale customers), you will see that there is significant value for the price of pH Adjust.

As for serving size, one container provides 250 one-gram servings (about a rounded 1/4 teaspoon). Even if you were to take larger amounts (like I do), say up to one teaspoon daily, there would be nearly 63 servings per container. That’s enough for two full months of servings assuming daily usage.

NOTHING TO LOSE, JUST pH BALANCE TO GAIN

For every person I know whose pH levels lean toward acidic end of the spectrum, there is a container of pH Adjust waiting to be opened. Seriously though, if you’re not getting quite enough potassium-rich vegetables in your diet (or think you are but actually are not), then please consider pH Adjust your supplemental “friend-in-need.”

And if you (or your clients) suffer from long-term, chronic acidosis due to a potential variety of causes, then you have much more to gain. Stop the spiral of acidity from keeping you from attaining much better balanced pH levels—and thereby improved health—by trying our simple blend of minerals in bicarbonate, carbonate, and glycinate forms, called pH Adjust.

Then measure your pH using litmus paper—and see the difference for yourself. Litmus paper doesn’t lie, and it gives you a reliable indicator of the progress you’re making and your current pH status in real time.

After using pH Adjust and measuring your results with litmus paper, then decide for yourself. Is pH Adjust worth its name? Does it effectively help you balance your pH? We think your answer will be “yes.” We believe you will love pH Adjust as much as we love it.

Be alkaline!!

EFFECTIVE PAIN RELIEF STRATEGIES WITH WARRIOR MIST

Fred Liers PhD warrior mist effective pain reliefI am excited this month to talk about Warrior Mist, which is an all-natural skin, muscle, and joint support formula. Warrior Mist is a topical formula that is my go-to-product for effective pain relief.

Warrior Mist is highly effective for pain. Indeed, my father Dr. Hank Liers formulated it for rapid pain relief, naturally. Many health care professionals find it useful for their clients.

Being applied topically on skin, Warrior Mist acts quickly at the pain source to stop it. Topical application is an advantage when it comes to rapid relief.

Warrior Mist topical effective pain relief

Warrior Mist comes in a pump-spray glass bottle.

NATURAL INGREDIENTS FOR EFFECTIVE PAIN RELIEF

Beyond its effectiveness against pain, what I like about Warrior Mist is that it contains all-natural ingredients. What does that mean? Most of its ingredients are herbal like peppermint oil, lavender oil, and organic coconut and olive oils.

Warrior Mist contains: DMSO (99.999% pure), peppermint oil (the source of menthol in the product), organic olive oil, distilled water, MSM, magnesium chloride, lemon oil, lavender oil, and organic coconut oil.

Warrior Mist contains no harsh chemicals or synthetic preservatives (like parabens, dimethicone, or phenoxyethanol). What else would you expect from a formulator like Dr. Hank Liers or a company like Health Products Distributors?

For anyone who cares about NOT putting toxic chemicals on their skin, Warrior Mist is a high-purity formula worthy of consideration. It is a pure, simple, and effective formula.

Warrior Mist comes in a spray bottle made of glass, not plastic. Shake it, then spray it. Gently massage the area of application to assist absorption. That’s all there is to it.

WARRIOR MIST APPLICATIONS FOR PAIN

Warrior Mist is effective for many applications, including pain relief for joints (wrists, elbows, knees, ankles), bruises and scratches, as well as insect bites and skin irritations. I occasionally I spray it directly into my mouth for throat relief, especially in winter or during allergy season (although technically it is not for internal use).

AIKIDO

I practice aikido, which can stress joints, especially wrists. Most aikido techniques involve grips that can become throws. There are also strikes, counterstrikes, blocks, falls, rolls, wrist breaks (escapes), and other movements.

Aikido is safe when practiced carefully. Yet, many techniques can lead to bumps, bruises, strains, sprains, and soreness. Warrior Mist helps me (and others) a lot. In fact, I donated a bottle of Warrior Mist to the dojo, so it’s there for anyone who needs it.

I am not sure what I would do for routine aches and pains without Warrior Mist. Sometimes just having relief after an aikido workout makes a big difference in my day.

My eight-year-old son also practices aikido in the same dojo. I feel confident using Warrior Mist on him because it is a safe, natural product that works.

I also practice yoga. Yoga rarely results in the types of minor injuries I experience from aikido. Yet, for times when I overstretch a muscle or overdo a pose, I reach for Warrior Mist for rapid, effective pain relief.

HIKING

I enjoy hiking. We live on the edge of a desert wilderness north of Tucson, Arizona. There are cactus, thick brush, thorny bushes, and biting insects like ants and scorpions. Many hikes involve at least a few thorns, scrapes, or mild soreness. Warrior Mist helps with these.

I have used Warrior Mist for bee and scorpion stings, ant bites, scrapes, cuts, small puncture wounds (e.g., from cactus spines), as well as skin irritations of various kinds.

In fact, there are few types of pain I have found Warrior Mist doesn’t mitigate. I use it for shoulder pain, neck pain, and lower back pain when it occurs. I notice the sooner I get Warrior Mist on the affected area, the faster I experience relief.

I don’t personally suffer from headaches, but friends who do tell me Warrior Mist helps them a lot. One of the ingredients is magnesium chloride, which is known to help ease headaches, including migraine headaches. Gently rub Warrior Mist around temples, forehead, or base of the neck.

Pain relief is not always immediate when using Warrior Mist. Yet, I know from experience how much it helps. The ingredients it contains support healing, too. Be patient, give it time, and allow it to work. That is exactly what I do sometimes.

AROUND HOUSE, YARD, AND GARDEN

Warrior Mist is ideal to keep in the house for everyday bumps and bruises like stubbed toes, bruised shins, or skinned knees. We find it useful after yardwork or gardening. You can spray it directly on an area, or else spray it into your hand first (after shaking the bottle), and then rub it into an affected area.

I know of two people who use Warrior Mist for pain in the tailbone (coccyx), the final segment of the vertebral column. Tailbone pain for them was originally caused by falling. One person fell from a horse and the other off a skateboard. While these injuries are structural, Warrior Mist provides significant relief. The reduction in pain helps daily function and facilitates sleep.

WARRIOR MIST FOR PETS

Warrior Mist is safe for use with pets. In fact, it was originally formulated for pets with the help of a veterinarian. You can feel confident using Warrior Mist on pets, large and small. It is ideal for use on dogs, cats, horses, and farm animals. Many veterinarians use Warrior Mist in their clinics for effective pain relief.

If you are a veterinarian, consider using Warrior Mist for your pet patients.

PROFESSIONAL USES

My wife Stefanie is a practicing acupuncturist. She uses and recommends Warrior Mist for her clients.

She frequently uses Warrior Mist in her practice for knee pain, shoulder pain, and back pain. What she often does is mix about five sprays (pumps) of Warrior Mist with about ten sprays of Magnesium Oil along with a dime-sized amount of carrier oil (like organic jojoba oil or coconut oil) in her palm.

She mixes the liquids in her palm (for amounts up to one tablespoon), but it can be mixed and stored a small container. For greater amounts, the ratios remain the same – about 2:1 Magnesium Oil to Warrior Mist – with correspondingly higher amounts of carrier oil. This is an excellent mixture because it combines the benefits of Warrior Mist and Magnesium Oil.

There is a slight chemical reaction that occurs when Warrior Mist mixes with Magnesium Oil. It is actually a warming effect. Stefanie likes it because the mixture is then applied warm, which relaxes muscles and opens pores for better absorption. No “warm up” is necessary and clients seem to appreciate the mixture’s warmth.

The mixture (of Warrior Mist, Magnesium Oil, and carrier oil) may be applied directly on affected areas with high rates of success. Clients themselves can obtain Warrior Mist and Magnesium Oil to make this mixture at home. Using a carrier oil is helpful, but not required because Warrior Mist contains organic coconut and olive oils.

Warrior Mist Magnesium Oil effective pain relief

Warrior Mist works well mixed with Ancient Minerals magnesium oil.

Stefanie also finds Warrior Mist useful for clients suffering from headaches. In addition, she will apply straight Warrior Mist to the throat, lymph nodes, or upper chest area for clients dealing with respiratory issues. Indeed, she applies it to these areas on herself when she feels she may be fighting or coming down with something.

Use Warrior Mist on clean, dry, lotion-free skin. The DMSO in the formula acts as a solvent carrying substances on skin into the body. This allows natural ingredients in the formula to penetrate into painful areas. Wash hands and the application area (or wipe with a damp cloth) before treatment. Avoid using carrier oils with toxic ingredients (like synthetic preservatives) that could be pulled into the body.

Stefanie tells her clients not to put anything on their skin that they would not eat. That is, use only natural oils and products containing ingredients that are natural and organic. A useful resource to determine what products are most natural is the Skin Deep Database on the Environmental Working Group website (www.ewg.org).

If you are a health care professional who deals with clients requiring pain relief, please contact HPDI to request a sample bottle of Warrior Mist. See how well this effective pain relief formula works for your clients.

Wash hands, shake bottle, then spray on clean, dry skin. Massage area to assist absorption.

WARRIOR MIST FOR ATHLETES AND SPORTS

One group of people who love Warrior Mist is athletes, especially runners, triathletes, and other endurance athletes. Warrior Mist is useful for nearly all sports, including contact sports.

HPDI’s sponsored athlete, pro cyclist Irena Ossola, uses Warrior Mist regularly, especially during races and high-intensity training. She incorporates it into the sports massage she receives with reportedly good effects. She also states that it helps her with recovery.

Irena occasionally crashes her bicycle. This remains a hazard in her sport, she says. However, Warrior Mist has done much to help her joints, road rash and other abrasions, sore muscles, and to speed her recovery.

For purposes of athletes, the magnesium chloride in Warrior Mist can help support muscle health and recovery, and provide effective pain relief.

WARRIOR MIST SUMMARY

Dr. Hank Liers designed Warrior Mist as a natural formula containing ingredients known for providing effective pain relief. Given its wide applicability, topical application, natural ingredients, and proven history of use, Warrior Mist is ideal for personal use by consumers and in clinical settings for clients who require effective pain relief.

Warrior Mist is one of the most natural, effective pain relief products available to heath care professionals and consumers alike.

Warrior Mist comes in a 30 ml (1 oz) spray bottle which provides hundreds of applications. A single bottle typically lasts about two months.

Directions: Shake bottle before applying. Wash hands before and after use. Apply in a thin layer to a clean, dry, and lotion-free area needing support. Shave thick hair that may prevent absorption by the skin. Gently massage the area of application to assist absorption. Re-apply as needed 3–4 times daily. (Contains DMSO, a known solvent.)

BEYOND WARRIOR MIST: WARRIOR SLEEP & WARRIOR ENERGY

Warrior Mist is one of three Warrior Health products offered by Health Products Distributors. Dr. Hank Liers formulated these Warrior products, all of which are topicals requiring ultra-low doses (ULD) by design: Warrior Mist, Warrior Sleep, and Warrior Energy.

Warrior Mist Sleep Roll-On Energy effective pain relief

Warrior Mist, Warrior Sleep, and Warrior Roll-On Energy are topical formulas.

Warrior Sleep (9 ml) is an effective, natural sleep and relaxation formula having no drug-like side effects (compared to conventional sleep aids). Like Warrior Mist, you apply Warrior Sleep directly to skin (transdermal application) for rapid absorption. Warrior Sleep incorporates four natural ingredients for sleep: lavender oil, roman chamomile, magnesium, and melatonin. It uses DMSO and natural oils to carry these rest promoters into the body. Warrior Sleep contains: DMSO (99.999% pure), olive oil, distilled water, MSM, magnesium oil, lavender oil, lecithin, roman chamomile oil, coconut oil, and melatonin.

Warrior Sleep is an effective topical relaxation and sleep formula.

Warrior Roll-On Energy (9 ml) is a unique topical roll-on energy product. It is formulated to provide five hours of mental and physical enhancement. One bottle will last 30 days when used twice daily. Warrior Roll-On Energy contains: DMSO (99.999% pure), organic aloe vera gel (inner fillet), distilled water, organic extra virgin olive oil, peppermint oil, magnesium chloride with trace ocean minerals, MSM, organic coconut oil, caffeine (80% from green tea), soy lecithin (high phosphatide and 98% oil free), glutathione (reduced), Vitamin B6 (from pyridoxal-5’-phosphate), Vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin), and Folinic Acid (from calcium folinate).

Warrior_Roll-On_Energy Warrior Sleep

Warrior Sleep and Warrior Roll-On Energy contain built-in roll-on applicators.

I use all three Warrior products depending on daily needs. Warrior Sleep is an effective sleep aid, but is also effective for relaxation or applied before bedtime to prepare for sleep. I apply to the neck base, upper throat, and temples. We have noticed it nourishes and smooths facial skin. This is due to its synergistic blend of ingredients, including melatonin, MSM, and organic carriers oils.

Warrior Roll-On Energy is uniquely energizing. It differs dramatically from most energy products, or coffee, tea, or chocolate. The formula utilizes ultra-low dose (ULD) technology to carry energizing ingredients (including caffeine from green tea) rapidly into the body. Yet, unlike caffeinated drinks, users typically experience no let down or rapid drop in energy after using it. Warrior Roll-On Energy provides non-jarring, sustained energy during the day (up to six hours).

How Katie Survived & Thrived on 2DOCS Pet Vitamins & Superfoods

Fred Liers PhD pet vitamins supplements superfoodsHPDI has been highly involved in the development of the 2DOCS line of pet supplements, including pet vitamins, specific-condition formulas, and superfoods like Rejuvenate! for Pets. Specifically, Dr. Hank Liers is the chief product formulator for HPDI and 2DOCS products. As such, the design philosophy behind both brands is virtually identical, even though the 2DOCS pet line is highly customized for animal health and wellness.

Having witnessed the development of 2DOCS lines of pet vitamins from the beginning, I am fortunate that all my pets have taken the formulas since they became available ten years ago. Indeed, my pets were among the first to try 2DOCS pet vitamins during the early years (circa 2003–2008) when we intensively (and extensively) tested and improved the products. Since then, we have continued to revise the formulas, and we’ve added new formulas to the line.

I am also fortunate to have spent much time not only with Dr. Hank Liers, but also with Dr. Randy Aronson (aka, the Radio Pet Vet) who partnered with Dr. Liers to develop 2DOCS line of pet vitamins. I followed the development of the formulas, and I came to understand the reasons that each formula is important for health, and how to use them most effectively. For example, while Joint Defense Formula is designed to the improve and maintain the health of joints and connective tissues, as well as dramatically reduce inflammation and pain, it also works well to stop urinary incontinence.

Dr. Randy initially used HPDI human formulas in his veterinary practice. His great success using HPDI supplements led to his requests for a line of supplements specifically for pets, and ultimately to his collaboration and involvement in developing 2DOCS pet vitamins. Dr. Randy places most of his pet patients on 2DOCS pet vitamins because they work, outcomes are better, and both pets and their owners are happier.

MY PET’S EXPERIENCE WITH 2DOCS PET VITAMINS & SUPERFOODS

KATIE

2docs katie pet vitamins supplements superfoods

Katie in 2007, the same year she passed away

Katie was an Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler) born in the early 1990s. By 2002, years of hard play, and her highly active life on the open range desert of southern Arizona south of Tucson, resulted in Katie developing arthritis and severe joint pain. Walking became more difficult. She became sedentary and gained weight, as her activity level progressively declined. Exercising so little, she now tired easily and her breathing would quickly become labored from walking a short distance. I wondered about how much longer she would live because she was a shadow of her former self.

In 2003, we put Katie on 2DOCS pet vitamins: Pet Mighty Multi-Vite (large pet), Pet Essential Fats (large pet), and Pet Antoxidant Formula (known back then as Pet-C Plus™). Shortly thereafter, she visibly gained energy and began to walk more often and with greater confidence. It was wonderful to see her no longer be content to spend the day lying around or trying to walk while visibly in pain.

2Docs multis are high-potency, human-grade formulas.

The positive changes in her physical capacities and appearance became more pronounced within about two weeks. Her coat was smoother and shinier, her eyes glowed with life, and she “smiled” more often. She now joined me on walks for the first time in several years. Neighbors who knew Katie from years past even commented on her physical condition, partly because they had not seen her in a while.

KATIE’S QUANTUM LEAP WITH SUPERFOODS

Shortly thereafter, we added 2DOCS Rejuvenate! For Pets into her regimen. Again, her energy levels rose immediately. But it was not until after she consumed Rejuvenate for about three weeks that we saw significant changes. She became more alert and responsive. Her endurance and capacity for exercise was dramatically better. She breathed easier.

Katie walked more, and she was happy regardless of whether or not she exercised. Something more fundamental was changing. She was becoming healthier from the inside out, and regenerating herself in ways that made her look, act, and feel years younger.

Rejuvenate!™ superfood provides dietary nucleic acids.

The positive changes Katie exhibited were exciting for us because she was transforming before our eyes into a healthier dog. We were astonished! Yet, in many ways these changes were not a complete surprise. In fact, we almost expected them because we had previously witnessed similar changes before in ourselves and in many of HPDI’s customers due to changing diet, and taking nutritional supplements and superfoods. Her changes were dramatic nonetheless.

We also added 2DOCS Joint Defense Formula into her regimen. This made a huge difference in her joint pain by itself. When combined with the other 2DOCS pet vitamins, her suffering was greatly alleviated, as evidenced by her desire (and ability) to walk.

Katie’s diet was healthy before we put her on 2Docs pet vitamins and superfoods. While she ate some Evo grain-free dog food, we primarily fed her sardines, grass fed meats (whenever possible), and shredded fresh organic vegetables.

We put the 2Docs large pet multivitamin, essential fats for pets, and pet antioxidant formula right into her food. She actually enjoyed eating these supplements from our hands, so occasionally we would give her the multivitamin by hand as a treat. It is also notable that Katie (as well as most other dogs and cats) enjoyed the taste of Rejuvenate! For Pets. She would eat it plain, and actually seek it out if she happened to smell an open container in the house. (Note: our Rejuvenate! For Pets superfood formula is identical to HPDI’s Rejuvenate! (original greens) designed for people.)

Katie continued to gain strength (and muscle mass) and lose fat. She now seemed content all the time. It was clear she was not experiencing significant pain, and she was fully aware mentally. For three years, she took take daily walks with me with just a few short rest periods during a walk.

Katie finally passed away in 2007 at approximately the age of sixteen. I am certain that the 2DOCS pet supplements helped to add about five years to her life. More importantly, Katie was healthy and happy, and she experienced a high quality of life until the end.

2DOCS pet vitamins, supplements, and superfoods made a big difference in Katie’s health, longevity, and quality of life. 2DOCS supplements are designed to provide pets with all the benefits offered to people by HPDI’s human formulas. We believe that any pet can gain significant improvements in health, as well as better maintain a state of good health if they are provided with the pet vitamins, supplements, and superfoods that make it possible.

2DOCS PET VITAMINS & REJUVENATE! ARE FOUNDATIONAL FORMULAS

2DOCS stands for optimal pet health, healing, regeneration, and rejuvenation. In keeping with our system of foundational supplements for humans, we recommend four primary supplements all in the red label (and more or less in this order): multivitamins, antioxidant formulas, essential fats, and Rejuvenate! For Pets superfood.

So, if you’re just starting your pet on supplements, you could start with all four red line formulas, but you would at least start with a Mighty-Multi multivitamin (for large or small pets). That alone will support improved health. Next you would add a Pet Antioxidant Formula, Pet Essential Fats (for large or small pets), and then Rejuvenate! For Pets superfood. In certain instances, you might add the essential fats or Rejuvenate! For Pets before the Antioxidant Formula, depending on the unique needs of your pet.

THEN ADD SPECIFIC CONDITION FORMULAS & SUPERFOODS

The other (i.e., non-foundational) formulas in the 2DOCS line are specific-condition formulas. That is, most of these formulas are intended for use with a condition, such as allergies (Allergy Defense), joint and/or connective tissue health (Joint Defense Formula), or gastrointestinal problems (e.g., diarrhea) (GI Defense). Green label superfoods like Cell Support for Pets can be used for specific conditions, but are generally used to boost and maintain overall health.

Joint Defense is among 2Docs’ most popular formulas.

A NOTE ON DIET FOR PETS

We also recommend changes or improvements to your pets diet. This might include fresh meats, raw organic vegetables, and the avoidance or reduction of grain-based pet foods (e.g., avoid wheat, corn, barley, oats, etc.). In addition to reducing grain-based pet food, avoid genetically modified ingredients (i.e., GMOs) (which includes almost all non-organic corn and soy), as well as synthetic preservatives, fillers, colorings, flavorings, etc.

If you use a commercial pet food (either by itself or as a supplement to meats and vegetables), there are several readily available grain-free options. For organic pet foods, you will have to do a bit more research, or make your own.

2DOCS PET VITAMINS FOR OPTIMAL HEALTH

We are confident that 2DOCS supplements can help your pets attain higher levels of health and well being. Especially when combined with a healthy natural diet, exercise, and a loving home environment, pet supplements can effectively support optimal health for pets. Please visit the 2DOCS area on the HPDI website to order or learn more about 2DOCS human-grade pet vitamins, supplements, and superfoods.
