About Natural Health Sherpa
Natural Health Sherpa is a new company focused on pinpointing natural health therapies that have been proven to be safe and effective.
Why a Need for Natural Health?
We, collectively, are in bad shape.
For evidence of that, you need to look no further than the skyrocketing obesity rate and the epidemics of type 2 diabetes and heart disease that are wreaking havoc on the human race.
It’s clear that what we are doing right now isn’t working and that it’s time for a fundamental re-thinking of how we approach healing ourselves.
The good news is that you have the ability to reclaim your health; the bad news is that it’s going to take substantial changes to your lifestyle to do that…changes that will fundamentally alter how you’ve approaching eating and exercising.
Fortunately, Mother Nature has provided us with a treasure chest of natural therapies and solutions that can act as a short-term bridge to quickly help alleviate some of the problems we are dealing with, whether that’s high cholesterol, high blood sugar, high blood pressure or chronic conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, menopause, hypothyroidism or more.
And that’s where Natural Health Sherpa can help.
Natural Health Sherpa is Born…
Pinpointing which of these natural therapies actually work, separating fact from fiction, deciphering the hype and the bogus claims can be an incredible challenge.
For example, have you ever wondered whether a supplement actually works as it claims? Is it REALLY the magic bullet we’ve all been searching for or is it just a waste of money?
Or how about that ancient herb or exotic Amazonian fruit you’ve read about? Are they really safe? Do they have dangerous side effects? Could they potentially be contaminated?
The natural health field is full of genuine individuals who want nothing more than to leave the world a better place…but we also have to realize that the field is also full of charlatans that just want to make a quick buck at YOUR expense.
Mother Nature is full of natural solutions that have been proven both safe and effective…but ONLY if you know where to look.
How Natural Health Sherpa Will Help…
The two main questions regarding natural therapies are: Is it effective and is it safe?
So, each week, our expert team of seasoned, professional medical and natural health researchers will provide you with in-depth reviews of safe, effective natural therapies that have been proven to work through rigorous scientific study.
We’ll separate fact from fiction by analyzing the existing scientific data to determine which natural therapies are truly safe and effective, and which are bogus or — worse — dangerous to your health.
Therapies could include anything: superfoods, nutrient powerhouses, unconventional exercise techniques, alternative natural medical procedures, and more.
You’ll be surprised by what you’ll learn! In fact, it is very likely that you are using several of these “therapies” right now that either simply lack in scientific backing or could even damage your health.
We’ll review natural therapies that boost your energy, help alleviate chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, menopause, hypothyroidism and more. We’ll even examine ways to naturally accelerate your metabolism, improve your sleep, beautify your skin, and more.
Think of us as your natural health guide, or Sherpa, that will help you navigate through the often-confusing natural health space.
