Are Native Life LLC products organic?

Yes and no. Native Life LLC prides itself in using certified organic, organic or sustainably sourced wildcrafted ingredients. All the ingredients we use are organically grown, but like us, not every product we use has gone through the certification process required by the USDA to have the organic label.
Let us explain further:
The definition of organic is food or other agricultural products that farming methods have produced or involving production without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or other artificial agents and sold to the consumer without adding unnatural preservatives, additives, coloring or synthetic agents. Organic farming strives to cycle resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity.
The definition of certified organic is food or other agricultural products that have gone through the certification process and meets the USDA’s organic standards. In the United States, it is required for producers to obtain special certification to label or market food and end products as organic.
Wildcrafting, also known as foraging is the practice of harvesting plants from their natural or wild habitat for food or medicinal purposes. This is considered the “original” organic because commercial farming methods aren’t used, and the plants are grown in their natural state.
Native Life LLC is more concerned with how the companies we obtain our ingredients from are farming or wildcrafting, then if their crop has the certified organic label. To us, a non-certified farmer who uses organic practices, along with ethical and responsible harvesting methods produce the same quality, and in some cases better, ingredients as the certified, large-scale organic farmer.
We don't believe the organic certification process is worth the significant price increase it would cause on our products. Instead, we choose every ingredient specifically and consciously, taking into account aspects beyond just being certified organic. Our commitment is providing affordable bath & body and holistic healing products created with pure, safe ingredients as nature intended.

 

Questions about our products 

1. When can I expect to see results?

Since everybody has a different situation, we never know how long it will take for someone to achieve the results they are looking for. Past customer feedback really does vary based on each person's individual circumstance making it very difficult to predict results.

2. How do I take the supplements I purchased from you?

For improved absorption, it is recommended that you take these supplements on an empty stomach either 30-60 minutes before a meal, 2 hours after a meal or unless directed otherwise. Capsules can be emptied into water (room temperature to hot) and drank as a tea. Teas should be soaked in hot water and strained then drunk once it has cooled off. If you are taking prescription medication, always take our supplements at a different time than your medication since prescription drugs may cause imbalance to the body and lessen the effectiveness of the balancing qualities of our products.

3. How long will I have to take the supplements?

The length of time someone would choose to take our products varies greatly based on an individual's health situation, stress level, and toxicity of the body. These factors make it difficult to put an exact length of time you will need to take the products. Eastern Medicine practitioners believe that by keeping stress and toxin levels low, this can aid the body in achieving better balance and thus require a shorter herbal use protocol. 

On the flip side, individuals with high levels of stress and toxins may need to continue taking herbal dietary supplements for a longer period of time in order to bring proper balance to the body. Stress reducing activities like yoga, meditation, plenty of sleep, healthy diet, non-strenuous exercise, hobbies, and eliminating stressful thoughts such as "worrying" are all worth investigating for those wanting to aid the body in recovering faster and thus eliminating or reducing the need for any dietary supplements.

4. Are there any "Side Effects" with these products?

 All natural substances like vegetables, meats, fruits, herbs and many other forms of foods may cause a "side effect" on a small population of sensitive individuals. While our herbal products do not have negative side effects like ones associated with Western Medicine drugs, the body can experience side effects while going through a "Detox" from the natural cleansing properties of herbs.

When someone begins our natural products, the body may begin to optimize organ and cellular function. When this occurs, the body will begin to excrete toxins such as previously taken drugs, pollutants, bacteria, chemicals and other harmful substances that have been stored in the body.

While this is very healthy, symptoms may include headaches, diarrhea, acne, nausea or fatigue. NOTE: to minimize and prevent "Detoxification" effects of the body, as well as ease your body into any new product, we suggest that you take a reduced amount of supplements when you first begin any of our products. Simply take one capsule or tablet, twice daily for the first 3 days.

Then, add one additional capsule or tablet every three days until you get to the recommended usage. For those with digestion problems or if stomach upset occurs, our supplements can be taken with food or right before you eat, however, we do suggest taking them on an empty stomach in the future for best results. Always drink 8 ounces of pure water, 6 to 7 times daily to help the body rid itself of toxins and regain optimum health.

5. Should I continue, stop or modify my prescription medications?

We at Native Life LLC do not provide medical advice and/or treatment for any disease or illness. You should not change your medical prescription regimen in any way without first consulting your primary medical doctor. As your health improves, you should continue to work with your primary medical practitioner.

 Additional information: In general, it is important for all users of medications to understand that ALL medications / drugs have harmful side effects. This is due to their chemical and synthetic makeup.

 

6. Can I take these herbal products if I am currently taking prescription drugs?

The herbal products sold at Nativelifellc.com are natural dietary supplements designed to balance the body and support health. Since our products are simply natural dietary supplements designed to promote healthy balance, they should not interfere with most prescription drugs / medications, and we always advise that Native Life LLC  products be taken at least 2 hours apart from any chemical drugs so that the drugs will not make Native Life LLC products ineffective. We also advise you to consult with a primary healthcare physician if you are concerned in anyway.

 

7. Can the products you sell treat or cure my disease?

According to the U.S. FDA, no natural dietary supplement company is allowed to make any claims of that their products treat or cure a disease. The FDA only allows drug companies to make these types of "treat or cure" type of claims for approved chemical drugs. Native Life LLC supplements are designed to be used simply as an all-natural dietary supplement to support and maintain a healthy body. Stress reduction, as well as healthier dietary and lifestyle choices, are other important factors to investigate that may offer the body the best chance to heal itself.

8. What harm is there if I take too many of the supplements you sell?

Native Life LLC recommends that you do not take more than the suggested usages as listed on each product unless otherwise directed by a primary healthcare provider. Generally, there are no significant side effects from taking our natural dietary supplements. If you take too much, the body simply excretes any amount that is not needed. If you take more than the suggested dosage at one time you might experience indigestion or diarrhea as the body removes the excess herbs from the body. We do not recommend overdosing and please keep the bottles out of the reach of children.

9. If my medical doctor tells me not to take these but I still want to take them, do you have any health advice for me?

As with any advice from any doctor, we always advise people to get a second opinion from a knowledgeable healthcare practitioner. Most western trained physicians are not educated in herbal uses. Because of this lack of experience, they may not be able to advise you to take an herbal product because they do not want the liability of telling you its okay to take an herbal product that they know nothing about. In these cases, we advise you to seek out an educated healthcare practitioner that understands and is trained on the herbs used in these supplements and can give you an educated second opinion rather than an opinion based on a "lack of knowledge". 

10. Can I experience detoxification effects from taking these supplements?

Yes you may. To minimize and prevent "Detoxification" effects of the body, as well as ease your body into any new product, we suggest that you take a reduced amount of supplements when you first begin any herbal product.

Simply take one capsule or tablet, twice daily for the first 3 days. Then, add one additional capsule or tablet every three days until you get to the recommended usage.

For those with digestion problems or if stomach upset occurs, these herbal dietary supplements can be taken with food or right before you eat, however, we do suggest taking them on an empty stomach in the future for best results.

 Always drink 8 ounces of pure water, 6 to 7 times daily to help the body rid itself of toxins and regain optimum health. If you eat plenty of fruit and vegetables you wont drink as much water. 

11. I am noticing health benefits that are unrelated to the product I purchased from you. How is that possible?

Traditional Chinese Medicine does not approach a disease by treating symptoms like in Western Medicine. Rather, it is based on a philosophy of encouraging harmony and balance in the body so the body can heal itself. The key to good health is a combination of cellular balance of the body and detoxification of the organs. As the body and organ system becomes balanced and the cells can communicate properly, the body has an amazing ability to improve its health. This is why you may have experienced unexpected positive health results while on these herbal products. We receive many similar testimonials from our customers.
