I set my standards high on dedicated efforts and the sincere devotion I possess in all that I can contributed to your wellbeing and to the protection and consideration of the environment from this, my most humble cause.  It has long been my goal to be able to concoct carefully crafted,  extensively studied, unique medicinal formulas that can be of benefit in the process of detoxification, restoration, renewal, recovery and recuperation .  Whilst still in the early stages, I am being constantly inspired by years of my own vast health challenged experiences, driven in force by all I encountered which helped me in my own plight for survival.  So without further ado, here is a unique array of healthful blends, medicinal spices and herbal formulas that are created in order to support health to become the best it possibly can be, specializing in remedies for the chronically sick who fight a daily battle.  Constant new ideas are being created, new formulas arise, for I am happy to serve diligently, to offer something (albeit small) to others in hopes of contributing affordable products for all to partake of.  I hope you enjoy each and every product I make for your “holistic" Self.

We also sell an array of dried organic and wild harvested herbs for you to create your own "brews", so go and see my eBay store.  Recipes on request, so please ask if you have any questions.

Most herbs are Wildharvested. What does that mean?  Well, It means  "Wild Harvesting: The collecting of medicinal, edible or ornamental plants from the wild."



Without a consultation it is very difficult to make specific recommendations regarding herbs for a specific disease or medical condition. The information provided on Amber's Organics is for educational use only. Please check with your primary care provider, if under their care, before taking any of these herbs or supplements to be sure they will not interact with any medicines you are currently taking. Do not stop any medicines or regimens that you are currently on that were prescribed by your primary care provider without their knowledge and approval. Also be sure to stop taking any herb or supplement below if you get pregnant, ill or if you experience any discomfort while taking them.


When to Take Herbs:  Generally, herbs are taken upon waking (at least one hour before breakfast), before or after meals, between meals, or before bed (at least two hours after dinner). Generally take only one herb formula in one sitting, so that you can experience its effects.


An Easy, Gentle Cleanse for a First-Timer

The following is such a cleanse based on my research in this area over the last few years. However, I highly recommend printing this out and consulting your doctor first as any cleanse (no matter how natural) maycatalyze certain health conditions.

Step 1: Reduce Your Exposure to Toxins

This is probably the hardest step because you can’t possibly control every toxin you come in contact with (unless you want to live in a plastic bubble for a month). Try to plan for your cleanse, though. For instance, limit unnecessary downtown travels and walk the back streets rather than the main so you can avoid as many exhaust fumes as possible. If you have access to a swimming pool, choose other exercise during your cleanse to avoid chlorine.

Here is a fairly complete list:

·         Wean out stimulants (alcohol, cigarette smoke and white sugar) – try to cut out coffee but if you can’t, drink organic.

·         Eat organic foods when possible – wash thoroughly to remove pesticides & contaminants (use soap or hydrogen peroxide).

·         Eat all natural foods– come on, you can resist junk food for one month. No chips, pop, deep-fried foods (basically any take out) – check all ingredients and if you can’t pronounce it, it ain’t natural.

·         Reduce red meat intake(its bi-product is poisonous ammonia) to one palm-sized serving once a week – try lamb.

·         Drink distilled water.

·         Use natural or eco-friendly products – if you can eat the ingredients, the products are safe to use.

Step 2: Flush Toxins Out

Your body will naturally detoxify but try the following to accelerate the process (although keep in mind, the faster you release toxins, the more intense the detox side-effects – i.e. headaches, soreness, grumpiness, etc.):

·         Drink lots of herbal teas(like mint and peppermint to aid digestion, dandelion to increase bile flow, milk thistle for liver detox and chamomile to help reduce anxiety).

·         Drink lots of distilled water. I know, this is total repetition but it’s super important; distilled to reduce toxins and the water to flush.

·         Increase your complex carbs or veggiesto about 65% of your diet. Round off your meals to approx. 25% protein & 10% healthy fats (from nuts, olive and flax seed oils, etc.)

·         Use chlorella supplementsto cleanse your blood.

·         Take milk thistle supplementsto cleanse the liver (but if you do, you don’t need the tea).

·         Eat detox-friendly and easy to digest foods(like garlic, onions, prunes, lemons, naturally fermented sauerkraut, green leaves – especially spinach, cabbage, kale, swiss chard & collards – papaya, pineapple, berries, etc.)

·         Exercise (cardio & strength-training) – aim for 4-6 times a week, alternating between mild, moderate and intense variations depending on your energy level.

·         Hot, steamy baths or saunas– once a week.

·         Stretch – integral for several reasons: it reduces muscle fatigue and soreness that is caused by the lactic acid (metabolic waste) released by muscle exertion; it also increases oxygen and blood flow, and decreases stress.

·         Drink green juices rich in detox-friendly foods – use as meal replacements.

·         Drink smoothies for breakfast – check out the “yummy recipes” category here on Live Lighter!

·         Do a partial fastonce a week – try going without food from dinner Saturday until dinner on Sunday – or whenever works for you. Adjust your activity level on these days to compensate for the lack of food energy, like take leisurely walks, do gentle exercises, etc.

Step 3: Repair and Heal

There are different methods, at varying strengths, of repairing and healing your body. A Naturopathic Doctor is the best resource for your individual needs. However, for the first-timer, try:

·         Aloe vera juice– known to be one of the friendliest methods for intestinal repair.

·         Increase your soluble fiber intake(like psyllium fiber and foods, such as several types of beans, carrots, broccoli and Brussels sprouts)

·         Meditate – try for everyday, either in the morning or night, and as long as you can. Start with 10 minutes and practice till you’re up to one half hour.

·         Sleep – the best way to find your optimal amount of sleep is to get up at the same time every morning and go to bed when you’re tired. Because you’ve limited your stimulants, your natural sleep rhythms should emerge.

Step 4: Replenish

Not only does cleansing get rid of toxins and bad bacteria, it unfortunately also flushes out the good bacteria that live in our guts. These probiotics are essential for proper digestion. It is important to rebalance the gut flora ratio of beneficial vs. harmful bacteria (85% – 15%):

·         Consume probiotics eat naturally fermented foods like yogurt, kefir and sauerkraut.

·         Take acidophilus tablets(extra-strength).

·         Eat foods known to have prebiotics – unrefined wheat and barley, raw oats, soybeans, leek, asparagus, artichokes, etc.

Step 5: After Cleanse

Resist returning to a highly toxic lifestyle. Reserve stimulating substances for special occasions and incorporate as many of the above cleansing methods into your daily lifestyle habits as possible.

Duration and Tips:Try this gentle cleanse for one month, although doing it for longer will give you better results. However, we all know it’s hard to do anything perfectly the first time around so be kind to yourself and simply do your best. Use the experience from this cleanse to better prepare for next season’s cleanse, identifying challenges so you can figure out ways around them.

Additional Tips:

Cleansing should be an experience to look forward to and if you feel increasing distress as your cleanse date nears, you’re not ready for it yet. If you feel as if you’re denying yourself true pleasure, then you will create stress – which actually inhibits detoxification! You’ll know you’re ready for a cleanse when life has become too much of a burden. Then you’ll be motivated to lighten your load – starting with the toxins in your body so that you can live lighter in body, mind and soul.

Plan your cleanse. Reduce your commitments for the cleanse duration and guard against the demands of others. Plan your activity (be flexible when necessary, of course) as well as your meals a week in advance. Use the Internet to find recipes, Saturday to get groceries, and Sunday to prepare your lunches and slice your veggies for convenience
