There are many of our customers whom will try out one of our products ranging from a few days to a month and not experience the results they were looking for, therefore swiftly turning to our generous return policy. In this article, I wanted to share about the accumulative effects one may experience if they could develop some patience with themselves and their bodies.
Our main goal as a company is to make a difference in your life. This gives us a sense of purpose that we are contributing to creating a better world and a healthier community. We want to educate our customers to understand that it may take some perseverance to truly create an authentic and genuine restorative experience when it comes to healing. Some may also see this insight as something that they can apply to get better results in anything that they are aiming to achieve in their overall lifelong journey.
What I am talking about is called the compounding effect. This means that with continual focus, consistency, and determination, the results you are looking for may be in the process of developing themselves behind the scenes and within your body. There are some things in life that take time, that start off as small but grow and duplicate the more they are consistently applied. Look at all the many layers that are in an onion. That onion had to grow each layer one at a time to become a whole onion, to become its true authentic self. Take for example someone learning to play the violin for the first time. They may sound dreadful in the beginning but with continual practice and “listening to their mistakes,” they have the opportunity to improve their playing into something that has the potential to become quite awe-inspiring and majestic. The compounding effect can also be described similarly to the term “snowball effect.” A snowball effect starts off with a small ball of snow rolling down a hill with minimal significance yet builds upon itself until it has become much larger and a much more powerful force. The more momentum one builds, the faster they will travel, and the greater they will become. This is where consistency comes in. It is important to ask the question, can one build momentum upon anything in their life if they are inconsistent?
We live in a world where we’ve become accustomed to instant results. What used to take weeks to communicate from a simple handwritten letter can now be received instantaneously through a text message. This also applies to the human body as we have grown up in a world of pharmaceutical “band-aids”. Have a headache? Take this pill and your headache will go away. Can’t sleep? Take this pill and it will knock you right out. Have you ever seen a seed grow into a beautiful rose bush moments after you’ve planted it? Nature takes time to really develop and blossom. These “band-aid” solutions are not solutions at all, they are just masking and denying the underlining problem. When it comes to healing, it can take just as much time to heal something as it did to create the issue to begin with. If you are one who was taught to sweep their problems under the rug year after year, then these issues may very well have grown in both size and strength. Therefore, it may indeed take a much longer timeframe to resolve them.
The question ones need to ask themselves is simple. Do you care about the way you feel? When you truly begin to care about your overall well-being is when you begin to take personal responsibility for your own life. This is the pathway towards a healthy and joyful existence. The commitment to loving one’s self is truly the journey towards enlightenment, bringing more love into your life allows one to shine their light on all their darkness. Whatever we choose not to acknowledge or choose to hide from ourselves is always redirected like a boomerang until we understand and heal what we have been unwilling to look at. As hard as it may be to accept this universal law, it is true that the world around us is a constant mirror echoing our internal world back to us. We are never victims in this world because we always have the power of free will to choose to take full responsibility and change ourselves. We are like a radio frequency broadcasting our thoughts and feelings; therefore we get back from the world an imitation of what we are inside of ourselves.
If you are reading this right now, chances are you have already found an internal desire to improve your health and overall well being. Many of our customers have become so disturbed by all the side effects of our toxic world and of all the pharmaceutical band-aids that they have been forced to reawaken themselves back to the natural elements in search of a more holistic remedy. Hippocrates quoted, “let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” What he was stating here is let us return to being in balance with the natural world. The human mind has been raised to divide and conquer, and it has been programmed to believe that we must live to both survive and to dominate our ecosystems and our environment. This illusion has, in turn, disconnected us from having a balanced relationship with the very planet we live upon, and the great peace and abundance provided for all of us by the natural world. Back to the mirrored reflection, our disconnection from the earth has very well projected itself back to us in our current global crisis when it comes to our health and happiness. Another example, when I was young, it was considered extremely rare for anyone to have cancer, looking at the world today it appears to be an epidemic. Yes, this is a reflection of the collective population becoming more and more out of balanced in terms of what it means to truly be human.
How does this apply to our herbs? Well its simple, it takes time for our bodies to recover from years of our self-inflicted negligence. Our herbs are tools that may assist in healing the body, tools that have been sourced for thousands if not millions of years straight from the wonderful powers held within mother nature’s generosity. In my own experience, it took six to nine months before I really began to appreciate the compounded results from taking our herbs consistently. By making Pine Pollen, Nettle root, Tongkat Ali, and Ashwagandha a steady part of my diet, and doing simple 10 to 15-minute exercises regularly, it has compounded its effects within me helping to balance out my hormone levels allowing me to maintain superior strength and vitality. I could have easily given up and said after the first month that these herbs did not work for me.
The truth was that they were always working since day one, working diligently to rebalance my system and with consistency I allowed the world of nature to work wonders on my mental, emotional and physical body.
My conclusion would be this. Set an intention to heal, be consistent and make it a priority, educate yourself vigilantly, become aware and enjoy the path of taking back control of your life so that you can enjoy the rest of your journey in pure joy and tranquility.
