AuNaturel Market in Valparaiso continues to serve the community as a health food store. After seven years in business they have successfully catered to the needs of their customers and have the largest herb and supplement selection in the area.

Diane Nelson, owner of AuNaturel Market, carries a line of natural products to combat the effects of that nasty winter cold or flu.

“By carrying different products, we are able to help our customers find the products that are just right for them,” Nelson said.

“One of the most popular products to combat cold and flu symptoms is Oreganol. North American Herb & Spice Oil of Oregano works as a natural antibiotic. Our customers have great results when using this product. “

Among the health benefits of Oreganol oil: Strong antiviral and antibacterial properties can help destroy organisms that contribute to skin infections; antiparisitic properties are helpful in digestive problems; strengthening the immune system; helps increase joint and muscle flexibility; improves respiratory health; oil of Oregano when applied topically can help treat skin infections, itchy skin and irritated gums, (but make sure it has been diluted because oregano oil is concentrated and can cause burning sensation to tongue or skin); the high content of thymol and carvacrol in oregano can help calm upset stomachs and aid digestion. Mix 2 to 3 drops of oil to a glass of juice, milk or water for a quick remedy for mild indigestion.

“Another product that we carry is Echinacea,” Nelson said, “which is widely used to fight infections, including the flu, tonsillitis, streptococcus infection and the common cold” explained Nelson.

Echinacea has traditionally been used to treat or prevent colds, flu, and other infections. There are nine known species of herb echinacea, all of which are native to the United States and southern Canada.

“Sovereign Silver – which consists of an immune support spray or as a nasal spray will also work well to shorten the severity and duration of cold and flu symptoms. All of these products work best at the onset of symptoms so they are good to have on hand for the winter season,” Nelson said.

Sovereign Silver Hydrosol can be used in many fights: Abscesses, acne, age spots, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-tumor, anti-viral, antibiotic alternative, athlete’s foot, bacteria, bad breath, bedsores, black mold, bladder infection, body odor, blood cleanser, boils, bowels, bronchitis, burns, cancer, canker sores, cardiovascular disease, cavities, chafing, chicken pox, colds, colitis, congestion, conjunctivitis (pink eye), crohn’s disease, cysts, diarrhea and dysentery, diaper rash, diverticulitis, ear infections, endometriosis, epstein-barr virus, fevers, fibromyalgia, food poisoning, foot odor, flu, gastritis and gas, genital herpes, gingivitis, hepatitis, human papilloma virus (hpv), immune modulator, inflammation and swelling, irritable bowel syndrome (ibs), itching and scaling, jock itch, keratosis, kidney disease, liver disease, lupus, malaria, mold and fungus, parasites, pet use, pneumonia, post-surgical issues, poultice , prostate problems, psoriasis, pus, pyorrhea (gum disease), rashes, rosacea, sore throat, thyroid issues, toenail fungus, tonsillitis, ulcers, vaginal odor, viruses, warts, water purification, wound healing and yeast infection.
