Today I talk about two new hemp extracts available from HPDI in the Quicksilver brand. I specifically present the difference between two new products: Nanoemulsified Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract 400 and Nanoemulsified Full Spectrum Hemp Extract 400. These two products replace the single product known as “Colorado Hemp Oil” previously available from Quicksilver. We now offer these two products and a range of hemp and CBD formulas on our new hemp website: www.INTEGRATEDHEALTHHEMP.COM.
Quicksilver Scientific replaces its Colorado Hemp Oil with two superb hemp extract formulas. The new formulas (Broad Spectrum and Full Spectrum) are similar. They both have the same level (21 mg) per serving of hemp extract. Also, they both contain 16 mg cannabidiol, which is an increase from the 12 mg cannabidiol in the old product (Colorado Hemp Oil).
In addition, both of the new hemp extract formulas contain more ingredients associated with hemp extracts—including additional cannabinoids, terpenes, and beta-caryophyllene—that improve the effectiveness of hemp extract products.
For people tho are regular tested for drugs (e.g., THC), the Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract is recommended. For those individuals who are not drug tested, the Full Spectrum Hemp Extract is recommended because it will better support the functioning of the endocannabinoid system.
The price of the Nanoemusified Full Spectrum Hemp Extract 400 and the Nanoemusified Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract 400 hemp extract products remain the same as the price for the discontinued Nanoemulsified Colorado Hemp Oil product. HPDI currently sells each of these new hemp extract liposomal products for $78.50 (retail).
These two new Quicksilver Scientific hemp extract formulas are superior liposomal hemp extract products. Both Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract and Full Spectrum Hemp Extract are highly effective formulas utilizing unique nanoemulsification technology to maximize the many known benefits of hemp extract.
Warrior Mist™ is the most effective formula for pain relief offered by HPDI. Warrior Mist is an all-natural, fast-acting, topical pain reliever that is effective for many types of pain. I should know. I have used it nearly every day—for years!
Types of pain Warrior Mist is known to stop, reduce, or soothe include: back pain (including sciatica), knee pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches (including migraines), neck pain and tension, stiff and painful (or pulled) muscles, plantar fascitis, arthritis, sports injuries, old injuries, sprains and strains, bruises (including deep bruises), shin splints, tennis elbow, nerve pain, and post surgery pain.
Practicing aikido for years, I have a frequent need for the rapid effects of Warrior Mist. Having used it for regularly for a long time, I appreciate how quickly it relieves pain like joint pain or sprains. It also works spectacularly for bruises, cuts, abrasions, burns, bug bites, and many other applications.
TESTIMONIAL: "This really works. I had tried several other products, including prescription medications, and little success. There was a noticeable difference after my first use of the product." – Amazon customer
Warrior Mist comes in a convenient one-ounce spray bottle. I shake the bottle and then add a few pumps—or as many as I need—to my non-pumping hand and rub onto the affected area. You can also spray it directly onto skin before rubbing it in with a clean hand. If you need more, you can always unscrew the cap and pour directly into your hand or onto skin, but I usually only reserve this action for times when I’m at the end of the bottle and I want to use all the Warrior Mist remaining in the bottle.
The small bottle travels well, and I usually take it with me whenever I travel. I also keep a bottle ready in a small hiking kit that I carry with me on the trail. While I may not always need it, nevertheless it is there. I cannot count how often I used it when I’ve least expected to need it. Sprained ankles or swollen fingers heal a lot faster than you might expect, compared to not having Warrior Mist around. It even works well on things like mosquito bites—and helps repel them.
Warrior Mist can be combined effectively with other natural topical products, especially Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil (see video). I often mix a little Warrior Mist with Magnesium Oil in my palm. This mix gives me all the benefits of Warrior Mist with the added boost of extra magnesium chloride that speeds healing.
WARRIOR MIST BENEFITS
Warrior Mist offers rapid pain relief and many other benefits:
• RAPID, EFFECTIVE PAIN RELIEF – Formulated as a fast-acting pain reliever using only natural ingredients
• LONG LASTING – pain relief last eight hours (or more) per use. This is a natural formula, so you will eventually need to re-apply it. But fewer applications means more time living life pain free.
• SAFE – 100% natural formula. This means that unlike prescription drugs or many over-the-counter medicines, there are no harsh or dangerous side effects.
• RAPID HEALING. Not only effectively relieves pain, but also supports rapid healing at the cellular level. It thereby supports healing at the sources of pain. i.e., helps with the underlying causes of pain.
• REDUCES MUSCLE SORENESS AND TENSION. Another benefit of direct topical application of natural, yet powerful (mostly herbal) ingredients. While this has obvious benefits for athletes,it also helps weekend warriors, or anyone who has muscle soreness due to any reason!
• INCREASES CIRCULATION. Increased circulation is a significant healthy benefit in itself, allowing better oxygenation of tissues, supporting healing, reducing stagnation of blood, and boosting processes of detoxification.
• LESSENS INFLAMMATION. Inflamatory processes can be harmful to the body. Warrior Mist helps reduce inflammation naturally, and thereby lessens free-radical damage from it, for example. This significantly supports your healing process.
• TISSUE REPAIR. When the ingredients in Warrior Mist penetrate tissues, then those tissues can begin the process of healing and repair, and do it faster!
• HEALS SKIN IRRITATIONS. A major added benefit is the healing of “minor” skin irritations, cuts, abrasions, etc. This is because the ingredients in Warrior Mist™ do double duty as superb nutrients for the skin.
• SCAR REDUCTION. Warrior Mist™ can soften scar tissues and stimulate the kind of deep healing that results in smaller scars and improved appearance of scars.
TESTIMONIAL: "Warrior Mist is the only product that I have found which truly relieves the osteoarthritis pain in my knee!! I am amazed by the speed and effectiveness of Warrior Mist. As an older person who has planned and worked to be able to complete my life in my own home, Warrior Mist contributes enormously to my ability to do that! Thank you for this excellent product!" – Amazon customer
WHY IS WARRIOR MIST EFFECTIVE?
Warrior Mist™ is a revolutionary skin, muscle, and joint support formula that uses DMSO, olive oil, coconut oil, and water as base (or carrier) ingredients that transdermally transport the other ingredients directly to the site of the problem where they work together harmoniously and effectively.
Functional ingredients carried to the site of pain include: peppermint oil (the primary source of menthol in the product), magnesium chloride, MSM, lemon oil, and lavender oil. Each of the functional ingredients (and their amounts) were carefully selected for their ability to stop pain, to help the body overcome the causes of pain, to promote healing at the local level, or to work synergistically with the other ingredients. Warrior Mist is 100% all-natural and totally safe!
As a topical analgesic, Warrior Mist conforms to the proposed rules set forth in FDA Monograph 348. The label used on the current Warrior Mist (1 oz spray bottle) meets the requirements set forth in this monograph. Even though there are a number of ingredients in Warrior Mist that can potentially provide temporary pain relief, the FDA monograph only recognizes the ingredient menthol, the major ingredient in peppermint oil, as an allowable active ingredient. According to the monograph, we can only mention menthol as the active ingredient and all other ingredients must be labelled as inactive ingredients.
The truth is that all the ingredients (functional and base/carrier ingredients) add up to a synergistic formula that rapidly relieves pain in a single, easy-to-apply topical product. What more could you ask for?
Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), a by-product of the wood industry, has been in use as a commercial solvent since 1953. Furthermore, in 125 countries throughout the world doctors prescribe it for a variety of issues, including inflammation. DMSO has been used widely as a carrier in topical analgesic formulas. Laboratory studies have shown that DMSO is able to block peripheral nerve C fibers.
Burns, cuts, and sprains have been treated with DMSO. Relief is reported to be almost immediate, lasting up to 6 hours. DMSO reduces inflammation by several mechanisms. It is an antioxidant, a scavenger of the free radicals that gather at the site of injury. Studies have shown DMSO to be one of the safest ingredients known with a toxicity similar to that of water.
DMSO has long been used to promote healing both in animals and humans. Those who have used it for minor cuts and burns report that recovery is speedy. Several studies have documented DMSO use with soft tissue damage, local tissue death, skin ulcers, and burns. Applied topically and repeatedly, DMSO flattens the raised, nodular, lobed liner mass of scar tissue in keloids and acne.
MSM is a naturally occurring nutrient found in normal human diets. In the body DMSO and MSM, which form each other, are indistinguishable in their biochemical effects. They reach a equilibrium distribution between them that is dependent on the local body chemistry, and is independent of which one you start with. The metabolic enhancement mechanism of MSM and DMSO is that of an exceptionally effective oxygen transport system. This system is made particularly effective by the feature that both DMSO and MSM are highly soluble in both oil and water.
MSM makes cell walls permeable, allowing water and nutrients to freely flow into cells and allowing wastes and toxins to properly flow out. The body uses MSM along with Vitamin C to create new healthy cells, and MSM provides the flexible bond between the cells. Without proper levels of MSM, our bodies are unable to build healthy cells, and this leads to problems such as lost flexibility, scar tissue, wrinkles, varicose veins, hardened arteries, damaged lung tissues, dry cracking skin, digestive disorders, joint problems, and inability to defend against allergic reactions to food, animals and plants.
The applications of MSM include pain control (analgesic), inflammation control, dilation of blood vessels, increased blood flow, reduced muscle spasm, altering the crosslinking process in collagen (e.g., reducing scar tissue,) anti-parasitic effects (particularly against Giardia), and immune normalizing effects. MSM has a unique ability to pass through cellular membranes (including skin).
The primary constituent of peppermint oil is menthol, which causes a physical reaction when inhaled or applied to the skin. Menthol produces an immediate and pronounced sensation of coolness that effects the body quite noticeably, and creates a “warming effect” as blood flows into the area of application.
Peppermint oil can be used externally for providing relief from pain. Peppermint oil increases your immunity. It also improves blood circulation. Additional of the uses of peppermint oil include:acne, asthma, colds, cramps, dermatitis, exhaustion, influenza, headache, insect bites, mental fatigue, migraine, nausea, nerve pain, neuralgia, poor circulation, and respiratory disorders.
Lavender oil helps in treating migraines, headaches, anxiety, depression, nervous tension and emotional stress. The refreshing aroma removes nervous exhaustion and restlessness and increases mental activity. Because it induces sleep, it is often recommended for insomnia. Lavender oil is also an excellent remedy for various types of pains including those caused by sore muscles, tense muscles, muscular aches, rheumatism, sprains, backache,and lumbago. A regular massage with lavender oil can provide relief from pain in the joints.
Lavender oil is also good for improving blood circulation in the body. The health benefits of lavender oil for the skin can be attributed to its antiseptic and antifungal properties. It is used to treat various skin conditions, including acne, wrinkles, psoriasis, and other inflammatory conditions. It heals wounds, cuts, burns, and sunburns rapidly because it aids in the formation of scar tissues. It is also effective against insect bites. The oil also repels mosquitoes and moths.
Lemon oil is powerfully astringent and antiseptic. Lemon oil is detoxifying and is therefore good for blemishes associated with oily skin. Lemon oil is a powerful antioxidant and is a tonic for supporting the nervous and sympathetic nervous system. It’s been long known that lemon oil is anti-infective, antibacterial (especially with spores), and antiviral. It can function as a disinfectant and exerts vitamin P-like action for improving microcirculation, promotes white blood cell formation, and improves immune function. It has also been widely used in skin care to cleanse skin and reduce wrinkles.
Magnesium chloride applied to the skin is an effective means for increasing magnesium levels in the body, and is particularly useful for relieving sore muscles and joints, and reducing pain related to functional magnesium deficiency. It is also proven for use in helping to calm “nerves” and reduce systemic bodily stress. Because the magnesium targets muscle tissues, it is thereby especially useful for replenishing depleted soft tissues and helping restore proper function.
Magnesium is necessary for the production of energy in the body. When the body receives adequate amounts of magnesium, it can produce the levels of energy required to sustain the body and enable it to thrive. Magnesium chloride is proven for use in a variety of general applications, including bruises, cramps, muscle tension, and migraine headaches.
Used as a base and mixed with other essential oils, olive oil makes a wonderful oil for skin health. In fact, it has been touted as one of the oldest healing and beauty techniques. A biblical reference from about 493 BCE documents the daily massage with olive oil and other oils as a part of the beauty regimen.
Coconut oil is a superb skin lotion because it both nourishes skin and is naturally anti-bacterial, antiviral, and antifungal due to its high content of medium chain triglycerides
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. Reapply as needed 3–4 times daily. Contains DMSO, a known solvent. Use on people or pets at your own discretion.
USES: Warrior Mist™ is an all-natural skin, muscle, and joint support formula.
WARNINGS: For external use only. May cause temporary (up to 45 minutes) skin irritation, heating, or flushing upon use. Discontinue use if temporary skin conditions persist. Do not use on wounds or severely damaged skin. Do not bandage tightly. Avoid contact with eyes. Flush eyes with cool water if exposed. Do not use if allergic to any ingredients. Stop use and visit a health care professional if reason for use continues for more than one week. If swallowed get medical help or call a Poison Control Center. Consult a health care professional before use if pregnant.
Warrior Mist topical formula is highly effective for pain relief. A major advantage is that it is a natural formula (available without a prescription) and can safely be re-applied whenever necessary. Another benefit is that it lacks the side effects common to prescription pain medications.
Try Warrior Mist for yourself. If you’re like me, you will want to keep a bottle or two ready for the aches and pains of daily life. Use it as often as you need it. Be a warrior!
Several years ago a customer asked me for a program that could be helpful to those suffering with bone fractures. A relative had been diagnosed with multiple bone fractures in his ankle.
Since I have been counseling individuals regarding natural treatments for supporting those with bone fractures and injury for many years, I was able to provide a comprehensive program that could be helpful in recovery. More recently, we have introduced products and tools that can be even more supportive. Therefore, in this article we are providing an update to the bone fractures program.
Clearly, the need for such a program is great. According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), about six million individuals suffer fractures each year in North America. In about 5–10 percent of cases, patients suffer either delayed healing or fractures that do not heal.
The problem of bone fractures is especially troubling for the elderly, many of whom suffer from osteoporosis, a condition in which bones become weak and break more easily. For an older person, a fracture affects quality of life because it significantly reduces function and mobility, and requires an extended period of recuperation.
The bone fracture program set forth below also works well to support the healing of other types of bone problems, including broken bones, bone surgery, osteoporosis, and wisdom tooth removal.
THE BONE FRACTURE PROGRAM
IMPORTANCE OF FOUNDATIONAL SUPPLEMENTS
The first element of the program consists of Foundational Supplements. This group of supplements ensures the body is being supplied with all of the basic elements needed for optimal function. The primary foundational supplements consists of 1) a therapeutic multivitamin and mineral formula, 2) a complete buffered Vitamin C with antioxidants formula, 3) an essential fatty acids supplement, and 4) a high-RNA superfoods formula.
Our Foundational Supplements are described in great detail on the HPDI website where we provide a free downloadable e-book “The Need for Foundational Supplements” (.pdf). Suffice it to say that the foundational supplements are a essential part of the program that ensure healing will take place quickly and effectively. I encourage everyone to become familiar with this information as foundational supplements are basic to any wellness or healing program.
ENHANCEMENT FORMULAS ARE CRITICAL FOR HEALING BONE FRACTURES
The second element of the program for healing bone fractures consists of Enhancement Formulas that strengthen the body as it relates to dealing with the damaging effects of bone fractures. These include a Vitamin D3 formula with the synergistic nutrients of Vitamin A and Vitamin K2 that are required for the rebuilding of bone as well as strengthening the body in many other ways. The HPDI Vitamin D3 Plus formula to designed to specifically address this need.
A second Enhancement Formula in this program is our comprehensive Bone Guardian formula that is based upon micronized veal bone that provides hydroxyapatite (Ca10(PO4)6(OH)2). Hydroxyapatite is the basic component of human bone that is 50% by volume and 70% by weight. Whereas the Vitamin D3 Plus formula builds the bone matrix, the Bone Guardian fills in the matrix with materials such as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, boron, zinc, manganese, copper, silica, and strontium. HPDI sells Bone Guardian in both the tablet and capsule forms. The capsule form may be better for older people who are able to absorb capsules better than tablets.
A third Enhancement Formula to the program is additional amounts of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is known to participate in every step of the process of building collagen, which is a key component of bone. Vitamin C has been shown to increase bone mass density. We recommend slowly increasing your intake of buffered Vitamin C until you reach your bowel tolerance. This can be accomplished by increasing your intake of HPDI’s foundational supplement PRO-C™ formula. The PRO-C has the added value of containing oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) from grape seed, skin, & pulp. OPCs in the body are able to strongly crosslink and strengthen new and damaged collagen fibers needed needed to repair bones, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage.
SPECIFIC CONDITION FORMULAS TARGET BONE FRACTURES
The third element in the program are Specific Condition Formulas that directly address issues related to bone fractures. The first of these is the addition of a joint formula that allows the body to build and repair connective tissue and to significantly reduce inflammation in the area of bone fractures. In most cases of fractures there will be damaged ligaments and tendons as well as inflammation in the area.
HPDI’s Joint Health Formula includes the ingredients glucosamine hydrochloride, MSM, and sea cucumber (a significant source of chondroiten sulfate) in addition to anti-inflammatory substances such as turmeric extract, rutin, and grape extract (seed, pulp, and skin) that have been extremely helpful in both repairing connective tissue and reducing pain and inflammation.
A second strongly recommended condition-specific formula is proteolytic enzymes. Because it is highly likely in the case of bone fractures and injury that there is significant tissue damage, a formula with pancreatic and plant enzymes as well as anti-inflammatories can be extremely helpful is clearing out the damaged tissue. This gives the body the opportunity to begin the rebuilding process much sooner.
Our recommended PROLYT formula contains the proteolytic enzymes bromelain, trypsin (pancreatic enzyme), and chymotrypsin (pancreatic enzyme), and the polyphenols/bioflavonoids turmeric extract (95% curcuminoids), quercetin and oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) from grape extract. This formula when taken on an empty stomach between meals is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream and goes to work cleaning up any damaged tissues in the area surrounding a fracture and assists in reducing pain and inflammation.
TOPICAL MAGNESIUM CHLORIDE FOR PAIN AND RAPID HEALING
A final Specific Condition Formula that I highly recommend for healing bone fractures is to rub Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil on and surrounding the fracture area. Bones cannot heal without having adequate amounts of magnesium available. Unfortunately, many people are deficient in magnesium and even taking oral magnesium cannot easily provide sufficient amounts to an area with a bone fracture. Magnesium oil (mostly magnesium chloride) is quickly absorbed transdermally (via skin) and often can provide rapid healing and pain relief!
BODY pH COULD BE A FACTOR IN HEALING BONE FRACTURES
The processed food diets with a high protein and low vegetable content consumed by many people in the U.S. and elsewhere often produce conditions in the body of acidity. This in turn leads to decreased oxygenation of cells and encourages a greater amount of anaerobic processes in metabolism. In addition, when the body is acidic calcium can be taken from bones in order to balance the acidity. This can lead to poor healing of bone fractures.
In order to counter acidic conditions in the body we recommend the use of HPDI’s pH ADJUST formula. As a dietary supplement, take 1 gm (about a rounded ¼ tsp) in 4-8 ounces of purified water preferably away from food, or as directed by a health care professional. For extremely acidic conditions, try 4–10 doses per day, depending on acidity level. Use pH paper to ensure pH levels remain balanced, and do not become too alkaline (alkalosis may occur above pH 8.2).
TESTING pH LEVELS: The best way to test pH levels is to use litmus paper, which HPDI offers in rolls (Hydrion brand) for this purpose. You can test salivary or urinary pH. In order to test salivary pH, simply use a small strip of pH paper to dip into a small amount of saliva. Advantages of pH paper include rapid results, ease of use, and cost effectiveness.
The color of the litmus paper indicates the pH level of the body fluid tested. Most litmus paper comes with an indicator chart showing colors corresponding to various pH levels. Alkaline states will generally produce a dark green, blue or purple color (most basic). Acidic states will range from yellow (most acidic) to light green.
Salivary pH and urinary pH are significantly affected by recent food consumption and other factors, so it it best to test pH hours after meals or in the morning when you awake. We prefer to measure urinary pH since results are more consistent. Measuring urinary pH is a simple as placing a few drops of urine on the paper or dipping the paper into a sample cup of fresh urine.
A consistent pH measurement of less than 7.0 indicates that you are too acidic (values less than 6.2 show extreme acidity). This indicates that you should consume more alkaline forming foods (usually vegetables) and/or take pH ADJUST. A single dose of pH ADJUST can change conditions in the body from acidic to alkaline within a few hours.
GENETIC VARIATIONS IN YOUR VITAMIN D RECEPTOR GENE (VDR) MAY BE AN IMPORTANT FACTOR
The VDR gene (contained in every cell of the body) provides instructions for making a protein called vitamin D receptor (VDR), which allows the body to respond appropriately to vitamin D. This vitamin can be acquired from foods in the diet or made in the body by exposure to from sunlight. Vitamin D is involved in maintaining the proper balance of several minerals in the body, including calcium and phosphate, which are essential for the normal formation of bones and teeth. One of vitamin D’s major roles is to control the absorption of calcium and phosphate from the intestines into the bloodstream. Vitamin D is also involved in several process unrelated to bone formation.
VDR attaches (binds) to the active form of vitamin D, known as calcitriol. Calcitrol is produced in the body from Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) in the liver and kidneys. The interaction with calcitriol allows VDR to partner with another protein called retinoid X receptor (RXR). The resulting complex of proteins then binds to particular regions of DNA, known as vitamin D response elements, and regulates the activity of vitamin D-responsive genes. By turning these genes on or off, VDR helps control calcium and phosphate absorption and other processes.
In recent years, genetic tests have become available that show VDR variations can cause serious conditions related to low bone density and other important body functions such a higher blood glucose levels or lower immune system function. If a person is having little success in healing bone fractures, it is possible that VDR variations are a key factor of causation.
In such cases, we recommend having genetic testing done to determine if VDR variations are present. Recently, HPDI has teamed with a genetic testing company (BodySync, Inc.) and sells the BodySync test kits on our Reseller site. Please click here to see our blog article regarding the BodySync genetic test. Among the genes tested for in the test are three variations of the VDR gene. Resellers can purchase the test kits directly from HPDI and retail customers can call us (800-228-4265) to find out how we can help them get a test kit and support them with any associated counseling regarding the results.
SUGGESTED SUPPLEMENT SCHEDULE – BONE FRACTURES
I have included all of the above supplements including recommended dosages plus more related to having an excellent diet in the table provided below.
Additional nutrients that may be helpful include pH ADJUST (to balance excess acidity in the body), Warrior Mist™ for pain relief (rub on adjacent area several times daily), Echinacea (as drops or capsules), N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine – NAC (2 gms per day), Progesterone Cream – for women (1/4–1/2 tsp twice daily), and TerraFlora probiotics/prebiotics (2 capsules daily) if on antibiotics.
PROPER DIET IS ESSENTIAL
Consume a diet that provides good amounts of protein which is needed by the body to support the healing of bone fractures. Eat meats, poultry and fish (e.g., sardines, salmon, mackerel) in the amount of a 5–10 ounces per day. Ensure a good intake of organic vegetables, including high levels of dietary fiber. Drink 16 oz per day of fresh vegetable juices from carrot, celery, beets, cabbage, etc.
Other healthy foods (preferably organic) include fruits, whole grains (e.g., brown rice, millet, and quinoa), beans, nuts and seeds (sunflower, chia, flax, pumpkin, almond, walnut and sesame in small amounts — 2 or 4 ounces — are good). Try eating Hank’s Vegetable Soup several times a week. Avoid all sweets (sugar), processed/refined foods (white bread and pasta), preservatives, and artificial flavors and colors. Vary your diet.
HYDROTHERAPY (WATER THERAPY) FOR BONE FRACTURES
An additional treatment that can be useful is hydrotherapy. In particular, hot and cold showers are a very effective way to move the blood and create circulation. This can speed up both detoxification and delivery of healing nutrients to the area of a bone fracture. Here’s how to do this. Once daily, take a complete hot and cold shower. You will start with hot water for one minute, then cold for one minute. Repeat this seven (7) times so the shower should last about 15 minutes.
Another time, daily, you can perform a complete hot and cold shower routine again or a partial one just applying the water directly to or near the area where there is a bone fracture. While you are doing both hot and cold showers, pay special attention to any affected area and massage it as vigorously as is safe and comfortable. If a shower is impossible, then alternate hot packs and ice packs on the area of the bone fracture.
BONE FRACTURES – CONCLUSION
By following the recommendations and suggested supplement schedule, healing time for bone fractures can be significantly reduced and fractures may heal more completely with fewer complications. By ensuring your body receives the proper nutrients it needs to heal itself, and by engaging in other relevant practices (e.g., hydrotherapy), you and/or your loved ones may be able to deal with bone fractures successfully, and continue a healthy, vibrant lifestyle.
I 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 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).
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.
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.
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 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).

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, 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 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).
