A Must Have For Winter! - Fighting Colds & Flu Naturally

Posted on December 20, 2018 at 11:55 AM

Holiday season is all about friends and family coming together and we absolutely love sharing in that joy! However, everyone knows that the first thought that runs through your head when you hear your little cousin wiping snot from their nose and your uncle coughing really loudly is, “oh boy, stuck in this house, unable to escape exposure from these germ heads!” When everyone is kissing and hugging on each other, the germs just start flying!!!!!! YUCK....... Now, the main fix for this problem society suggest is: go get your flu shot today! During this season, we encourage everyone to research the risks associated with flu shots. Trust us.........there are many concerns about them.....do your research!!!!! Now, we recognize some people want the flu shot despite all of the contraversial information out there, but we need to provide our clinets with the safest options possible for your health.


1. Increase immunity! A robust immune system is the best way to battle all the little flu buggers. The best way to increase immunity is to pop some wellness boosters into your vitamin routine. These act as a preventive supplement that builds your system up to stop germs in their tracks. During cold & flu season this is one of our #1 sellers and it sells all across the US and Canada. This formulation was created only for Dr. Valerie Nelson and the word is spreading about the effectiveness of this product. Matter of fact, we almost ran out of our supply recently....

2. When you first catch a cold or flu recognize that your PH is likely off. An easy wayy to balance and stabilize your system is to use a simple fix you can get at your local grocer -- Aluminum free baking soda. This fix doesn't taste the best but it is highly effective because it quickly raises your PH level. Simply stir 1/4 teaspoon in a glass of water and sip it throughout the day. Try to muster through the ocean water taste though! Use this right along side of your Wellness Boosters.

3. Lastly, kick off your socks before bed and rub 3 drops of oil of oregano into the soles of your feet. The biggest pores on your body are on your feet so this will help it be in a place to absorb the oil the best. This little trick is especially helpful if you have the stomach yucky bug or with children who cannot swallow pills yet. Children are 1/2 the dose of adults.

So what ACTUALLY makes Wellness Boosters a preventive solution:


Echinacea angustifolia -- fights viruses and infection


Elderberry powder -- fights colds, viruses, fever and boosts immunity

Parthenium root -- natural immune booster, anti-inflammatory; fights colds and viruses


Dandelion root -- natural liver detoxifier and blood cleanser

Goldenseal root -- fights upper respiratory infections; germs and viruses

Olive leaf -- powerful antioxidant; strengthens cardiovascular system, natural anti-viral, reduces candida

Elder Flowers -- combats inflamed sinuses, colds, bronchial infections

Oregano Leaf -- respiratory strengthener, supports gastrointestinal system, natural antibiotic

Burdock root -- kills germs, reduces fever, blood purifier and liver cleanser


Astragalus root -- immune system booster; adaptogen herb and virus fighter

VERY Important Information on Dr. Nelson's Education

Posted on February 2, 2017 at 6:20 PM

You may have received a request from us in the past to sign a petition fighting a law that was going to strip many Naturopathic Doctors of their titles.

The passing of this regulation mainly stems from one Naturopathic Doctor from Peters Township who has been providing and or promoting incorrect information to senator's office; to newspapers and to Pennsylvania citizens as well.


She was representing to citizens that the passing of the law to “license Naturopathic Doctors in the state of Pennsylvania” as a good thing for citizens of Pennsylvania indicating that this would bring MORE Naturopathic Doctors into the state to give citizens MORE options.


She was sending out newsletters to individuals in an attempt to try to get them to vote for the passing of this ‘so called’ good law in an attempt to get it passed to dominate the market place. She even posted in one of her newsletters to “not post the information on Facebook, as it was confusing people.” She was attempting to get this law passed ‘under the radar.’




Well, she was successful.........They got it passed right before the presidential election when everyone was distracted.


Pennsylvania DID NOT pass the ability for licensing, as she wanted, but it DID pass a law that all Naturopathic Doctors are required to be registered and only if you went to a "Medical Naturopathic School" are you allowed to call yourself a "Naturopathic Doctor."


The passing of this law has basically stripped all “Traditional Naturopathic Doctors” of their titles on their degrees. The passing of this law has only benefited about 20 – 30 “Medical Naturopathic Doctors” and hurt over 250 Traditional Naturopathic Doctors.


Again, this ONLY benefits the so-called “Medical Naturopathic Doctors” because they are stripping the title away from over 250 “Traditional Naturopathic Doctors”.


She is claiming that “Traditional Naturopathic Doctors” did not go to “Accredited” Schools. The school that Dr. Nelson went to was Accredited through the American Naturopathic Medication Accreditation Board.


She has gone as far as writing articles in Pittsburgh newspapers claiming that some Naturopathic Doctors only go to school for 6 weeks. This information is completely false. What accredited school would give a degree to a Naturopathic Doctor who went to school for 6 weeks? That is completely ludicrous.


Be very cautious of trusting your health to an individual that would spread such untruths in an attempt to put over 250 Naturopathic Doctors out of business in an attempt to dominate the marketplace while deceiving Pennsylvania citizens.


FORTUNATELY...... there are national organizations out there that are working to protect “Traditional Naturopathic Doctors” across the United States because they know that all of this is “hogwash”. They offer Board Certification Exams for them to be able to change their titles to something other than “Naturopathic Doctors” since Pennsylvania now has passed a law that greatly favors the 20 – 30 “Medical Naturopathic Doctors.”


Yes, because of the passing of this law, our titles are required by Pennsylvania law to change, but our same passion for offering the Pennsylvania citizen’s natural choices in healthcare will remain.


Dr. Valerie Nelson has been Board Certified in Integrative Medicine through the American Association of Integrative Medicine since 2009 - Member #1199. This is a strict review board which has medical doctors on it.


She went to school over a period of 7 years obtaining 3 different degrees in natural medicine.


We just wanted to clear up any confusion that is floating around out there about the law that was recently passed – this law is NOT effective until 2018, so Dr. Nelson’s title will remain the same until that time.


Her new title in the future will be Board Certified Doctor of Natural Medicine.

Want a pain free life?

Posted on November 29, 2016 at 12:15 AM

Do you know someone suffering in pain constantly?


This was John's story (below) before he came to see us last year.


90% of people who are willing to give this plan a try will see results in 6 weeks!


Please take a few minutes to read his story below and pass this along to anyone who struggles with chronic pain.

See John's Plan for FREE -- http://files.constantcontact.com/7b04f370601/e61ec6e8-c664-472f-9e14-567264c6d96d.pdf?ver=1476463542000




My Chronic Extreme Pain is 95% Gone!


"In 2012, I was diagnosed with arthritis and fibromyalgia. I was put on several different medications. I did not want to be on all of these medications. I really wanted to know what was wrong with me, not be put on toxic medications. I felt like I was too young not to have any answers as to why I was in all of this pain. I literally did not want to walk up my steps to my bedroom, as the pain was so bad. It was very difficult for me to continue to work, but I needed to support my family.




In 2013 and 2014, the pain just got worse and worse, so I was just given more medication to try to treat the pain. The medical doctors even put me on anti-seizure meds, but that still did not work. I honestly was getting very discouraged and feeling hopeless. Most of the pain was in my knees, shoulders and hip.




After all of this, the medical doctors recommended me to go to the pain clinic. In the meanwhile, I had a friend tell me about Dr. Valerie Nelson and suggested that I give naturopathic medicine a chance. So, I set up my appointment.




One of the health questions was “Do you want Dr. Nelson to pray for you during the appointment?” Of course, I said ‘yes’ because I wanted every chance I could get to feel better.




Dr. Nelson encouraged me that she had been successful utilizing vitamins, mineral and homeopathy therapies and that within 6 weeks we would know if the program was going to work for me. She told me that there would be a number of natural medicines that we would need to try & that I needed to follow the program exactly & we would know soon enough. I had to admit that this was not like other doctors appointments, but again, I was so tired of living daily in chronic pain that I was willing to give it a try. I was very happy that my HSA account would cover the expenses. She also told me that I needed to come in every week for a footbath detox session and I did what she said.




Within 2 weeks, my pain had reduced by 25% -- within one month, the pain was reduced by 50% -- by 2 months, the pain reduced by 75% and by the 3rd month, the pain was reduced by 95% !!




When I returned for my follow up at the medical doctor’s office, the office staff said “Wow, I can see that going to the pain clinic really helped you out!” I excitedly told them “Nope! The Naturopathic Doctor is who got me better!




My medical doctor (cardiologist) was so impressed with my results and he saw Dr. Nelson’s husband at a business gathering and actually sought him out saying “hey, your wife really helped one of my patients! He then proceeded to ask for some of her business cards because he could see how much I had been helped!




This has been such a life changing experience for me that I tell anyone who is willing to listen!" If your are going to try this program, you have to give it your all.




Update - within about 4 months of the program, we reduced some of my supplements and I come in once per month for a footbath for maintenance.


I have been pain-free for almost a year and a half now. I am so glad that I gave this a chance because it really did give me my life back.

Is Your Thyroid Making You Sick?

Posted on September 8, 2016 at 11:50 AM

Many individuals come into our office when they are highly suspicious that they have a thyroid problem. With the convenience of the internet today, people have easily been able to research on their own that thyroid blood work is notoriously incorrect. This leads to very frustrated individuals who are confused and many times are recommended an anti-depressant (because “it is all in their head”;).


Under-active thyroid is much more common than over-active thyroid. Even though Dr. Nelson will look at the blood work, she certainly does not put all of her eggs in that basket. She has seen the following scenarios with blood work:


The person’s blood work matches their symptoms and they feel wonderful on their current medication for thyroid (not very common).


The person’s blood work shows that their thyroid is functioning well based on their current medication, but the person DOES NOT feel good and does not know why. (very common scenario).


A person has a number of unexplained symptoms and the doctor is suspicious of thyroid issues. When the doctor runs blood work everything comes back "normal," leaving the patient very frustrated because there are "no answers" again.


Dr. Nelson has even seen a few cases in which the person’s blood work falls in the over-active state, but their symptoms are all under-active. (not as common, but still treatable with naturopathic medicine).


Being told that you do not have a thyroid issue when you in fact do can be very counterproductive, especially if the search for relief sends you on a tangent looking for answers elsewhere, as you struggle with daily symptoms.

Thyroid Blood Work Not As Accurate As You May Think


The simple truth is that thyroid lab work is not the most accurate method to determine if an under-active thyroid is present. Simple symptom tests are WAY more accurate. Most doctors will not treat their patients using symptom testing. This is the 4th leading reason that individuals come into Abundant Life Wellness.

Proof That Thyroid Conditions Exist

The Mayo Clinic has determined that as much as 10 percent of the population suffers from thyroid problems and it appears to be on the increase. Dr. Brownstein, a medical doctor who specializes in thyroid disorders believes the percentage is much higher at an estimated 60 – 70%.


Why Do These Problems Exist?


Why are we seeing so many more cases today than ever before? We believe in addition to lack of nutrition that a large piece of the puzzle is due to our exposure to radiation with all of the massive increase of technology over the past few years. Radiation has a huge impact on our endocrine system, especially the thyroid. If someone comes into our office and they have many of the symptoms of a thyroid disorder, but no indication of that on their blood work, we most definitely will work with them to treat their thyroid.

How Dr. Nelson Can Help Your Thyroid

Dr. Nelson has been able to help so many people who are in this situation. She has worked to help individuals find natural solutions for thyroid conditions utilizing herbs, homeopathy and natural freeze dried thyroid (which is very similar to NatureThroid or Armour Thyroid.)

Dr. Nelson teaches her clients how to determine the best dose for their system.

In natural medicine, we are looking for the underlying factor as to why your thyroid is not functioning properly. We look at toxicity and deficiency issues. A cookie cutter approach does not work - with one individual the cause is different than the next individual.


Take Thyroid Questionnaire Below

We have had countless cases of individuals regain optimum health through nourishing the thyroid. The thyroid affects the speed of your 75 - 100 trillion cells and can have a HUGE effect on the total health of the body. Feel free to take the test below on our website by clicking the link below.



How do EMFs affect you?

Posted on August 26, 2016 at 8:35 AM

Did you know that EMFs are all around us? You cannot avoid them. And they are highly toxic. But you can protect yourself from them with Dr. Nelson's EMF Radiation Neutralizers.

Studeis have shown that radiation (EMFs) emitted from cell phones, microwaves, TVs, wi-fi, etc., can cause significant negative effects on the body such as cancer, headaches, pains, emotional problems, sleep disturbances, infertility and brain tumors. These studies are backed up by Dr. Blaylock, Dr. Sinatra, and Dr. Oz. Dr. Nelson has seen the tool that these have taken on some of her patients as well.

But don't worry there is a solution to this craziness...Dr. Nelson's EMF Radiation Neutralizers and Buttons. Her stickers and buttons are programmed with over 30 homeopathic frequencies that have been shown to help neutralize radiation and EMFs in order to rebalance the body.
