Valued Testimonials

TESTIMONIALS from Clients at Dr. Shelly Byrd's Natural Solutions for Health Concerns.  Please visit my website www.shellybyrd.com.

Unresolved Nausea -- For many years, I was waking up every morning at 2:30 AM having strong nausea. I went to different specialty doctors in US and I even went to Europe to be completely checked. All the doctors told me that they couldn’t find anything wrong with me, but I had still the same problems.  I met Shelly and I told her about my health issue. I came to her office for a test and she told me that my liver and gall bladder were very weak.  She recommended different herbs and herbal teas to use daily. In just a couple of weeks my nausea went completely away and now I get a great sleep. I highly recommend Shelly, because she changed my life and because she cares so much about people. L.G.

Hot Flashes -- When I went to Shelly I was having anxiety and hot flashes among other health problems.  She then recommended supplements and homeopathics that really helped balance my system and relieve the hot flashes.  I definitely will go back. S.L.

Allergies -- Shelly was very professional and thorough. She is a very patient and compassionate person.  Shelly has been helpful with treating my husbands allergies to food. S.T.

Bacterial Infection -- Shelly was great at figuring out how to get rid of the bumps that showed up around my 9 year old's mouth. The dermatologist was expensive and was not able to help us.  Shelly discovered the cause was a rare bacterial infection, and recommended a homeopathic remedy.  Within a week they started disappearing and were all gone in 2 weeks. It was amazing! From now on Shelly will be my first call! S. M.

Ulcer -- I owe a debt of gratitude to Shelly!! I was in extreme pain for 14 months due to an ulcer. No amount of medication from the Gastroenterologist would help my pain. Shelly had the answer, and suggested an herbal remedy and I couldn't believe the results. I went from being unable to eat anything to feeling so much better and able to eat a normal diet within 4 days. She went above and beyond in her words of encouragement to keep living.... I truly believe Shelly is more than qualified to be a motivational speaker, life coach and a holistic practitioner. I constantly suggest my friends to enlist Shelly's help!! M.V.

Balancing Vitamin and Mineral Deficiencies -- I cannot thank you enough for all that you have done for this “aging” body, you can tell by all the referrals I send to you. Most people my age have a bag of prescriptions ~ all with “side effects” which is the main reason I avoid them.  I also appreciate your honesty, your genuine concern for your patients, and your prayers to the true “healer” of the universe! A.L.

Recommendation from the Dean -- Great work. You obviously have a very exceptional understanding of homeopathy. Very impressive. I’m glad you use it as one of your modalities in your practice as you have a gift for it. Dr. M., Dean -- University of Natural Medicine

Adrenal Fatigue -- I can say that after going through much of an ordeal with my husband my health needed an overhaul. Mainly my adrenals were impacted. You have helped in setting me up with the right product to bring my adrenal back to normal. Also, I was able to get off the prescription my doctor had me on for high triglycerides. C.S.

General Malaise -- Thank you for your kind spirit. Your kindness is reflected in your business. When I was ill, you gave me the information and insight into why my body was not working the way it should be. The products that I purchased have helped my recovery kick into high gear. I am feeling better than ever. Thanks for being there for me. T.R.

Leg Cramps -- I feel so fortunate to have found Shelly Byrd. I’ve been seeing Shelly Byrd for about 3 years. Shelly really cares about my health and wants to make sure that I maintain and retain optimum health. Specifically, Shelly has helped me eradicate painful night time leg and foot cramps and significantly improve my energy levels. Thank you Shelly! J.L.

Neuropathy -- Dear Shelly, all of your help and assistance has been greatly appreciated and has helped me a lot.  You have a wealth of knowledge and I appreciate having you close by. W.T.

Stress Management -- Going thru the worst time in my life (divorce) and having my life change completely, I knew my body was going to break down. When I came to Shelly she had me supplement to keep my body healthy. With the shock that I was going through I have remained healthy with no major colds or flu in the last three years. Shelly has also helped me improve with a non curable disease (per the medical field) even my medical doctor was impressed. I have been so blessed to know Shelly with all her knowledge in the natural health field. Going into my fifties, I remain happy and healthy. D.H.

Gallbladder -- I came to Shelly with a gallbladder problem.  My doctor wanted to remove it, but after the research and direction Shelly provided, my gallbladder health has improved, and I was able to make healthy choices to prolong my life.  Shelly is very knowledgeable and her warm, caring personality are soothing, too. B. H.

Immune System -- I don't know where I would be without you. When I first came to you almost 2 years ago I was not healthy in any way. I was scheduled to have surgery and was turned away the day of surgery twice because my white blood cells were too high. I was cleared for all of the logical medical reasons that would make my white cells high so the medical doctors were not sure what to do with me. I told Shelly my issue and she gave me something she thought would help and I took it for a few weeks and not only did my white blood cells go to normal range to where I could have surgery they were in the optimal range. P. M.

Hidden Causes of Ill Health -- Shelly was instrumental in finding out why my health was suffering. You can tell that she loves what she does as she is very informative and passionate. She really takes a personal interest in you as her client, which feels good. The testing she uses is modern and state of the art, very cool. Thanks Shelly! S. C.

Blood Pressure -- When my blood pressure shot up, she got me the appropriate supplements to lower it in just two short weeks. I also had a bladder infection that kept coming back while using antibiotics from my medical doctor. Once she started me on some homeopathic, it went away and never came back. She is an amazing gift! P.W.

Better Sleep -- Thank you for seeing me in your office. The test you gave me helped to determine what vitamins and minerals my body was lacking. It seems I am sleeping better and longer. So thank you again for helping me and encouraging me. N.B.

Increased Energy -- Just want to let you know you helped me with energy level of my health tremendously. You give cordial, gracious, listening and understanding care. F.C.

Lymphatic Infection – My horse had an unresolved illness.  The vet was not able to determine why he was sick and nearly dead.  With your help, it all made sense when you told me that he was dealing with a long term internal infection in his lymphatic system. With your herbal and nutritional advice you gave me to try for him, I am very happy to say he is feeling better and doing well and he is not sick anymore! Finding you was truly a blessing, and I thank you again for your devotion to helping us save my horse. P. & K.

Anemia -- After paying thousands of dollars with MD’s and not getting any results, I shared with Shelly the extreme fatigue symptoms my daughter was having and she prescribed a supplement to help her. We saw favorable results within just a few weeks and my daughter feels so much better. After seeing multiple doctors, Shelly was a breathe of fresh air. She is calm and knowledgeable and we thank her form the bottom of our hearts for her help! S.R.

General Care -- Thank you for helping me stay positive and make healthy decisions.  Sometimes I think that there's a reason for everything and I think what you've gone through had it's purpose to build you up stronger and have compassion for other people and really help others like me. So I take everything that you say as a great lesson, I'm opened to any of your words of wisdom.  Thank You!!! I love you!!! G.B.

Triglycerides -- Thank you for helping my daughter with her headaches, stomach aches and lack of energy.  She had been suffering with them for over 2 years.  We had taken her to numerous doctors for many tests, but nothing seemed to change her symptoms.  Shelly gave her dietary suggestions and supplements.  When we went back two months later to see Shelly, we were thrilled to see the numbers on her blood work, and changes in our daughter.  She was no longer having headaches or stomach aches, had a 52 point drop in her Triglycerides, and a significant improvement in her immune system.  K.B.

Natural Ways to Control Your Blood Pressure

Spice up your life -- Control your Blood Pressure

In a published study featured in the Journal of Medicine, it was revealed that common spices can protect from heart disease and the deterioration brought about by aging. In the said study, researchers discovered a connection between the phenol content of certain herbs and spices and their capacity to prevent glycation and formation of AGE compounds that are responsible for premature aging and heart disease.

As a way to manage your blood pressure, herbs and spices are a fantastic way to increase the medicinal value of your food. Below are some herbs and spices you may have been enjoying with no idea as to their value:

1. Garlic - Garlic contains allicin, a substance which has antibacterial, antioxidant, lipid lowering and anti-hypertension properties. In a pilot study made at Clinical Research Center of New Orleans on whether garlic could lower blood pressure, nine patients with severe hypertension were given a garlic preparation containing 1.3 % allicin. Sitting blood pressure fell with a significant decrease in diastolic blood pressure only five to 14 hours after the dose. Moreover, it was proven in a 2009 study that fresh garlic has more potent cardio-protective properties than processed garlic.

2. Cinnamon - Cinnamon not only prevents heart disease, it can also prevent diabetes. The Center for Applied Health Sciences in Ohio conducted a study of 22 subjects, half of which were given a 250mg of water soluble cinnamon daily while the other half were given placebo. It was discovered that those who drank cinnamon had a 13 to 23 percent increase in antioxidants connected with lowering blood sugar levels.

3. Onions - Onions contain quercetin, an antioxidant flavonol found to prevent heart disease and stroke. In a research study published in the Journal of Nutrition, subjects with hypertension experienced a decrease in their blood pressure by 7mmHg systolic and 5 mmHg diastolic as opposed to those who were taking placebo.

4. Olives - This herb is a significant part of the Mediterranean diet, recognized to be one of the healthiest in the world. Oil made from olives has been found to reduce blood pressure. In a study conducted on the importance of olive oil, Dr. L. Aldo Ferrara, Associate Professor at the Frederico II University of Naples in Italy discovered that the daily use of 40 grams of olive oil reduced the dosage of blood pressure medication in hypertensive patients by about 50 percent. Polyphenols in extra-virgin olive oil was credited for the significant reduction of blood pressure.

5. Oregano - This herb contains the compound carvacrol which has been proven to be effective against blood pressure. In a study conducted on animal subjects, by researchers from Eskisehir Osmangazi University in Turkey, carvacrol was found to reduce heart rate, mean arterial pressure as well as the systolic and diastolic blood pressures.

6. Hawthorn - This herb has been traditionally used to treat high blood pressure. In one study conducted in Reading, UK, 79 type-2 diabetic patients were randomized to receive 1200 mg of hawthorn extract while another group received medication for high blood pressure. Results revealed that patients taking hawthorn by the end of the 16th week showed a reduction in their mean diastolic pressure.

7. Cardamom- In one study published in the Indian Journal of Biochemistry and Biophysics, 20 subjects newly diagnosed with primary hypertension were administered 3 g of cardamom powder. After the end of the 3 months, all the subjects experienced feelings of well-being without any side effects. Moreover, the study was able to demonstrate that blood pressure was effectively reduced. It also improved antioxidant status while breaking down blood clots without significantly altering blood lipids and fibrinogen levels.

Taking advantage of the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of spices and herbs is an excellent way to boost your body's health. Herbs have low calorie content, increase the medicinal value of your food and allow you to use natural forms of lowering blood pressure. Mix them up with your soups, salads, fish and meat and vegetable dishes. It's a healthier and cheaper alternative to keeping bottles of prescription drugs and synthetic supplements.

I recommend a professional grade (highest quality and effectiveness) supplement that contains celery seed extract, hawthorne extract, and arjuna bark extract, plus magnesium and B6.  This combination helps to enhance cardiovascular function and normalize high blood pressure function.  This product is very effective and really works -- you can measure the results.

Twelve Steps to Happiness in 2012

Positively Positive says:

Each New Year brings awesome blogging opportunities for self-help junkies like me. I love offering up tips for making positive change—especially when readers are committed. This year I’m going to take advantage of the resolution bandwagon and throw down some tips for bringing more happy into the new year.
Now is the perfect time to make powerful change—your willingness is at an all-time high.
Check out my top twelve happiness tips:
Tip 1: Let go of last year's baggage.
It’s likely that last year brought many ups and downs. This year, resolve to focus on the good stuff. Choose to let go of what went wrong last year, and commit to what will go right this year. Be grateful and appreciate all that you have. When you appreciate what you do have, you create more of what you want. Stop focusing on lack and let the energy of gratitude create a more abundant life.
Tip 2: Change the conversation.
Make a resolution to change your dialogue about fear and negativity. When you think, talk, and act from a negative place, you attract negativity into your life. Commit to a new conversation. Begin the New Year talking and thinking about what you love about your life, rather than replaying the same old negative story. You might just be surprised by the results.
Tip 3: Give.
Being altruistic not only benefits the person you’re helping but greatly enhances your own life, too. This year, commit to the mantra “How can I give?” rather than “How can I get?” Giving produces endorphins, which make you feel great! Plus, giving to others helps you get out of your own way. When you focus on giving you can stop focusing on what you’re not getting.
Tip 4: Take a ME break.
Commit to a ME break at least once a week. Take time out to focus on yourself. This is a powerful habit to create early in the year. Need some suggestions? Take a long yoga class, prepare a nice meal for yourself, or create an evening ritual. One of my favorite ways to take a ME break in the evening is to give myself a facial.
Tip 5: Get naked!
This year, make a commitment to be authentic. Get naked with your truth, offering the world your greatest gift: your authentic self. Begin a practice of being yourself on dates, in the office, or even in your home. We all thrive on true connection. So this year, get naked with your truth. Don’t deprive the world of your authentic gifts. Even if it feels uncomfortable at first—go with it—you’ll feel liberated in no time.
Tip 6: Get creative.
This year, I commit to spend more time painting. This creative hobby takes me out of my daily patterns and ignites my inner spirit. Pledge to engage in a creative project as often as possible. You’ll find that time spent in creativity heightens your happiness, and gives you more energy for the other areas of your life.
Tip 7: Do innovative exercise.
Each New Year, millions resolve to hit the gym and lose weight. This year, make your physical resolutions fun! Rather than locking yourself up in the gym for days, find cool ways to shed the pounds. I am a huge fan of Hoopnotic, a rockin’ workout with a Hula-Hoop. When I Hula-Hooped as a kid, it was just a fun thing to do. I never would’ve imagined doing it as a killer (and totally addictive) workout.
Tip 8: Practice the F-word.
Carrying resentments into the New Year will only recreate the patterns from years prior. This year, vow to let go of resentments by practicing the F-word and forgive. Become conscious of whom you need to forgive (including yourself) and be willing to let go of your resentment and turn it over daily. Each morning when you wake up, set the intention to forgive. This daily intention will ignite a consciousness of forgiveness and provide you with the necessary tools to allow the F-word process to set in.
Tip 9: Eat mindfully.
To keep your Spirit Junkie mentality intact, you must feed your soul superfoods. This New Year I’ve committed to kicking the coffee. Rather than go nuts trying to eliminate everything bad in your diet, keep it simple and choose one thing to let go of. My spiritual running buddy Kris Carr offers amazing tips for cleaning up your palate in her book Crazy Sexy Diet. Let Kris’s book inspire you to keep it simple and wholesome. There’s no need to kick it all at once. Small shifts create powerful change.
Tip 10: Be Authentic.
Rather than conform to what you think the world wants you to be, in 2012, serve the world more of YOU. Make a New Year’s resolution to be more authentic. When you share your truth with the world, your genuine gifts shine through. Plus your authenticity gives others the chance to be truthful, too!
Tip 11: Sit back and receive.
I work hard to balance my go-getter mentality with my sit-back-and-RECEIVE approach to life. This year, welcome stillness and receptivity. Through a daily meditation practice, you can begin to transform your need to control outcomes and learn to sit back and receive. You’ll come to understand that stillness is sometimes the greatest action. Begin a meditation practice today with one of my FREE Spirit Junkie guided meditations. CLICK HERE to download.
Tip 12: Expect miracles.
Kick off the New Year with a miracle mindset. Begin each day with a prayer for peace and happiness. Say out-loud or to yourself: “Thank you, God, for reminding me of all the love and light in my life. I welcome positive support throughout this day. I expect miracles.” This daily prayer will jump-start your day with a miracle mindset and awaken your consciousness to the greatness around you.

Anti-Depressant Foods

An Alternative to "Prozac"?

"Prozac" Alternatives
Inside you, the essential amino acid L-tryptophan is broken down into anxiety-reducing, snooze-inducing niacin. Even more important, tryptophan is also made into serotonin, one of your body's most important neurotransmitters. Serotonin gives a feeling of well-being and mellowness, or as the Australians would say, "no worries." This is such a profound effect that Prozac, Paxil and similar antidepressants usually either mimic serotonin or artificially keep the body's own serotonin levels high. You can do the same thing with your food. And no one can tell us that beans, peas, cheese, nuts and wheat germ are toxic if you eat a lot of them!
Plenty of carbohydrates (starches) in your meals help tryptophan get to where it does the most good: in your brain. In order to cross the blood-brain barrier to get in, carbos are required. So cheese and crackers provides a better effect than the cheese standing alone. An egg or two on toast is better than just the egg. Beans, peas, and nuts already contain carbohydrate, so you are all set there.
Consider that five servings of beans, a few portions of cheese or peanut butter, or just one big handful of cashews provides one to two thousand milligrams of tryptophan, which will work as well as prescription antidepressants... but don't tell the drug companies. Some skeptics think that the pharmaceutical people already know. Here are two quotes in evidence:
"Pay careful attention to what is happening with dietary supplements in the legislative arena... If these efforts are successful, there could be created a class of products to compete with approved drugs. The establishment of a separate regulatory category for supplements could undercut exclusivity rights enjoyed by the holders of approved drug applications."
(FDA Deputy Commissioner for Policy David Adams, at the Drug Information Association Annual Meeting, July 12, 1993)
"The task force considered many issues in its deliberations including to ensure that the existence of dietary supplements on the market does not act as a disincentive for drug development."
(FDA Dietary Task Force Report, released June 15, 1993)
Remember that tryptophan is one of the ten essential amino acids you need to stay alive. It is by law added to liquid feedings for the elderly and all infant formulas. This says a great deal about its safety, as well as its importance.
And, tryptophan is really quite easy to get from the good foods listed below.
So go; eat; and be happy!
Foods high in the Amino Acid L-Tryptophan (in milligrams (mg) per 100 gram (3.5 ounce) portion), about the size of a deck of playing cards. That is not a large serving, and in a single meal you might easily double or triple the figures listed here.
Beans Lentils 215 mg Dried Peas 250 Navy (pea) 200 Pinto Beans 210
Red Kidney 215 Soy 525
Nuts and Seeds Brazil Nuts 185 mg Cashews 470 Filberts 210 Peanuts 340 Peanut Butter 330 (this is for natural peanut butter, not popular commercial brands) Pumpkin Seed 560 Sesame Seeds 330-575 (if seeds are ground up) Sunflower 340
Other nuts generally provide at least 130 milligrams per small serving; usually more.
Grains Wheat Germ 265 mg
Cheese Cheddar: 340 mg Parmesan: 490 Swiss: 375
Other cheeses tend to be lower in tryptophan, but are still very good sources.
Eggs 210 mg
Brewer's Yeast 700 mg
(Source: US Department of Agriculture, Amino Acid Content of Foods.)
Meats are generally regarded as a good source of tryptophan, organ meats supposedly being the highest. However, most meats are in the range of 160 to 260 mg/100 g, (chicken is about 250) with organ meats ranging between 220 and 330. These figures certainly do not compel meat eating. Compare with soybeans, split peas, cheese and cashews!

Preventing Cancer: 11 Tips to Live By

Dr. Mercola recommends:
In the last 30 years the global cancer burden has doubled, and is estimated to nearly triple by 2030. Clearly, we must begin to take cancer prevention seriously.
While curcumin offers great potential in the fight against cancer, I believe a healthy lifestyle—as opposed to swallowing any number of supplements—is the BEST way to avoid becoming a cancer statistic. I believe you can virtually eliminate your risk of cancer and other chronic diseases, and radically improve your chances of recovering from cancer if you currently have it, by following the following risk reduction strategies.
  1. Radically reduce your sugar consumption. Normalizing your insulin levels is one of the most powerful physical actions you can take to lower your risk of cancer, and in order to do so, cutting sugars and grains out of your diet is a must. Eliminating fructose is one of the most important sugars to initially concentrate on. If you have cancer, you'll want to reduce that to below 10 grams per day from all sources.
  2. Optimize your vitamin D levels. There's overwhelming evidence pointing to the fact that vitamin D deficiency plays a crucial role in cancer development. Researchers within this field have estimated that about 30 percent of cancer deaths might be prevented each year simply by optimizing the vitamin D levels in the general population. On a personal level, you can decrease your risk of cancer by MORE THAN HALF simply by getting optimal sun exposure year-round. Alternatively, you could use a safe tanning bed, or, as a last resort, an oral vitamin D3 supplement. Remember the BEST way to raise your vitamin D level is by sun exposure.

    If you are being treated for cancer it is likely that higher blood levels—probably around 80-90 ng/ml—would be beneficial. To learn the details on how to use vitamin D therapeutically, please review my previous article, Test Values and Treatment for Vitamin D Deficiency.
  3. Exercise regularly. There's compelling evidence indicating that exercise can slash your risk of cancer, primarily by reducing elevated insulin levels and normalizing estrogen. For example, women who exercise regularly can reduce their breast cancer risk by 20 to 30 percent compared to those who are inactive. I prefer to view exercise like a drug that needs to be carefully prescribed to achieve its maximum benefit.

    It's important to include a large variety of techniques in your exercise routine. Additionally it is likely that integrating exercise with intermittent fasting will greatly catalyze the potential of exercise to reduce your risk of cancer and stimulate widespread healing and rejuvenation.
  4. Get appropriate amounts of animal-based omega-3 fats.
  5. Eat as many vegetables as you are comfortable with. Ideally, they should be fresh and organic. Cruciferous vegetables in particular have been identified as having potent anti-cancer properties.
  6. Have a tool to permanently erase the neurological short-circuiting that can activate cancer genes. Even the CDC states that 85 percent of disease is caused by emotions. There are a number of different energy psychology tools available that are particularly well-suited for this purpose; the Emotional Freedom Technique is one example.
  7. Maintain an ideal body weight.
  8. Get enough high-quality sleep.
  9. Reduce your exposure to environmental toxins like pesticides, household chemical cleaners, synthetic air fresheners, air pollution, and plastic toxins like BPA.
  10. Reduce your use of cell phones and other wireless technologies, and implement as many safety strategies as possible if/when you cannot avoid their use.
  11. Boil, poach or steam your foods, rather than frying or charbroiling them.

Olive Leaf Extract

Olive leaf extract has amazing anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal properties.  It helps modulate the immune system.  In a recent study, Olive leaf extract was shown to be effective in working against 25 out of 25 viruses tested.

It helps regulate blood pressure (especially in combination with Grape Seed extract) by blocking the calcium channels in arteries. 

It reduces systemic inflammation and calms auto-immune responses in conditions such as diabetes, MS, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and chronic respiratory allergic responses.

Other studies indicate that it helps heal open wounds 78% faster, heals cartilage, chelates heavy metals, helps with gout, and may slow the growth of cancer.

Work out fatigue may be reduced by using a combination of Olive Leaf extract and the CoQ10.

I recommend a product called Immu-zyme by Apex Energetics.  This product contains an advanced herbal and colostrum immune health formula, including 10 immune-building herbs. These include olive leaf extract, astragalus root extract, and European black elderberry, plus several key vitamins and minerals.
