Flash back 35 years to the product that started it all. In 1972, NSP founder Gene Hughes took a spoonful of cayenne pepper for an aggravating stomach condition. When his wife, Kristine, suggested putting the powder into capsules for ease of swallowing, Nature's Sunshine was born. Soon the entire Hughes family began encapsulating herb powders and selling capsules to Utah grocery stores.

The company has come a long way since then. But Capsicum holds a special place in our hearts. And this year, we commemorate our 35 year history with a limited edition Capsicum Keepsake Set: a crystal capsicum bottle replica and bottle of Capsicum capsules with special 35th year capsicum label:

  • Crystal keepsake measures 92 mm x 54 mm (top diameter); made from the finest optical crystal; each piece is hand finished and inspected to ensure quality. This is your chance to own a truly beautiful replica of this timeless product.
  • Capsicum capsules (100 count) bottle with 35th anniversary label.

Pieces are individually packaged in a premium presentation box. Specially price at $19.95. A $60. value! Quantities are limited. Get yours today before they're history!

What is the most powerful tool in your tool kit?

That is the subject of the third Article

below, and at this link:



Wishing you Joy and Success,



The Powerful Business Building Tool

This tool can be used at any stage in building your business, whether you are just beginning or have been in business for many years. It will give you direction at times when you find yourself going in circles. It will inspire and boost you when your energy is low and help you know what to do when you find yourself at a dead end. This tool is so useful that once you begin using it, you will wonder how you ever got along without it. The powerful business building tool is a Question.

Many inventions came about because of the asking of a good question. The idea to create Terra Cotta Pendants came to me because I asked one simple question. The story is here. Dave Kahle in his book Take Your Sales Performance Up a Notch outlines many different planning processes that are simply a series of good questions.

Good questions: How can I find more contacts? How can I sponsor three new business-builders per month? How can I support, encourage and inspire my downline? What kind of meetings should I have? How can I sponsor everyone who comes to a meeting? Who would be a great partner to work with? What’s the best strategy for working a Health Show? How can I advertise more effectively? Where? How can I find places to present the oils? What am I doing that is working and what is not working? Should create a web site, start a Newsletter? What is the best use of the time I have today, this week, this month for building my business?

Ask questions specific to the season: What is the best way to introduce essential oils to people during the lazy days of summer? What are people looking for now (i.e. insect repellents, travel oils, sunburn relief) that essential oils provide? Where can I find new prospects? What should I be preparing now, to do this fall to build my business? What will work best in September, October, and November? If you can’t think of good questions, ask: What questions should I be asking?

My favorite, all-purpose question: “What else can I do to build my business?” An effective way to plan your week is to write down questions on Monday and pay attention to what happens. You can solve any problem, overcome any obstacle and discover great ideas with just one good question!

Where do we find the answers? That’s a good question! Use the Search Engines, go to your public library or call your company support team or your upline. We know now that what we focus on expands. That is the power behind this tool; the Universe will bring answers to you. But don’t just sit around waiting; move into action and meet it halfway! You haven’t even begun to understand your potential as a marketer until you’ve become adept in unleashing the power of asking good questions.

Effective business building begins with questions, continues with a mix of faith and action, and ends with a plan.

In the next Article we talk about the one thing common to all success stories. It needs to be a part of yours. Stay tuned.

Dear Nature's Sunshine Family,

Our 35th anniversary year continues to roll by quickly. At Home Office, we're excited about all of the events, product developments and activities planned for the remainder of the year. Nature's Sunshine is, as always, committed to quality, service and integrity, and I believe these guiding principles will continue to enable us to lead the industry for years to come. I also recognize the importance of you, our field leaders and customers, and I thank you for your commitment to NSP. It is through our combined efforts that we make a difference in the lives of others with improved health and well-being.

Please take note of the following items in June:

• Our scientific update this month focuses on protecting your skin from within during the hot summer months. We all know that you can use sunscreen or wear protective clothing, but did you know that you can also use dietary supplements to protect your skin from within? Two recent studies indicate that lycopene, phytofluene and phytoene may help protect the skin from UV-induced damage. Researchers also found that superoxide dimutase (SOD) may also help those that sunburn easily. Of course, Nature's Sunshine offers products such as our Carotenoid Blend and SOD with Gliadin that offer these protective nutrients. You can also use Thai-Go® and Natria Sunscreen for year-round protection. See the full article.

• Look for some exciting product specials & extra specials later this month! Some of your favorite NSP products will be available at a wonderful savings. Plan to stock up this month! Watch your mail, or check our website often.

Silver Shield meetings begin! Our repackaged Colloidal Silver will be available soon, and as part of this product re-launch, we'll have meetings in five locations across the country.

Untold Truths of the East
Unlocking the Secrets of Chinese Medicine

An aura of mystery surrounds Traditional Chinese Medicine. Because it approaches health and nutrition in a different way than most modern philosophies, many people just don’t understand it. But understanding anything more than 2,500 years in the making is difficult to accomplish without a guide.

This year through the Untold Truth series, we will explore the philosophy of Traditional Chinese Medicine and learn the secrets of ancient Chinese herbalists. Authored by Steven Horne, this module will give you an overview of Chinese herbs, terminology and philosophy, and how to use this information in your life and business.

Discover the Secrets of Energy. Unlike Western medicine philosophies, Traditional Chinese Medicine is an energy-based health system. Rather than focus on the body's organs and their functions, TCM recognizes the subtle connections between spirit, emotions, mind and body. Learn what these energies mean to you and how they can affect your health.

Uncover the Importance of Balance. Traditional Chinese Medicine holds to the law of opposites, which states that everything in existence has its “other half,” an opposing energy that balances it and creates wholeness. Most of us are familiar with this philosophy through the terms Yin and Yang. Learn how this law applies to the body and its mechanisms.

Establish Your Individual Constitution. Traditional Chinese Medicine recognizes that everyone is different, and that this uniqueness is expressed through a person’s constitution. Your constitution determines what strengths and weaknesses your body has. Learn how your constitution is revealed and how you can use that knowledge to influence your health. Steven Horne is an herbalist, natural health teacher, author and consultant. His work has taken him all over the United States and to several foreign countries, including Canada, Malaysia, Australia, England and Mainland China to share his wealth of knowledge.

Thanks to Nature's Sunshine, Unlocking the Secrets of Chinese Medicine can be enjoyed nationwide throughout 2007! I hope you will take advantage of this wonderful learning experience.

Published by Sam's Club June/July 07 issue of Source magazine
Written by Jody Norman

Once upon a time, we only had to wsh a little dirt off our produce in order to feel certain we were eating clean food. Now, however, we worry about hormones, pesticides, chemcial fertilizers, genetic modifications and more. Luckily, today's health conscious buyer can take comfort in one singel word: Organic.

What is Organic?
Organic foods consist of crops grown without genetic modifications and without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers or waste materials suchas sewage sludge. Organic also means meat, poultry, eggs and dairy from animals that are raised without hormones or antibiotics, and fed on "natural" pasture rather than on feed enhanced by slaughterhouse waste.

"I think buying organic is a vote for a different method of production," said Carl Winter, a food toxicologist at the University of California-Davis and a food science communicator for the Institute of Food Technologists in Chicago.

"One of the major differences in this new method of production," he said, " is its regional quality. Organic food often is grown locally, encouraging the money that consumers spend on produce to stay within the community. The local flavor of organic produce also tends to lower the distribution costs associated with transporting food from farm to store and results in lower gas consumption and less air pollution because the journey is so much shorter."

Buying organic food supports environmental protection in other ways as well. Consumers who buy organic invest in cleaner water and air through their support of a farming system that relies on natural mehtods of pest control. As such, pesticides do not seep into groundwater or spread into local rivers and lakes. "Pesticide residues are commonly found on crops, so for the consumer interested in reducing their pesticde load, organic is it," said Nell Newman, co-founder and president of Newman's Own Organics.

Of course, organic foods are good for consumers, too. An apple grown and harvested conventionally can have as many as 36 different pesticides sprayed on it, according to the Washington, D.C. -based Environmental Working Group (EWG), which cites government research. "If people knew how their food was grown, they'd be willing to pay the extra money on organic," Newman said.

What to Buy

The key to identifying organic food while grocery shopping is the USDA organic seal, which certifies that the food item which bear its seal are organic. The seal, however, is voluntary, so knowing common organic brands helps.

Consumers who want to buy organic can identify many organic foods by studying their labels. Organic produce for instance, has a five-digit number on it that begins with the number nine, while conventional produce has a four-digit number. Consumers must also be aware of verbiage on signs and should remember that Natural and organic are not interchangeable.

So the next time you're at Sam's club, remember that making organic purchases supports healthy environments, healthy families and healthy communities.

NOTE: A foot note to this article reveals:
Only foods certified as at least 95% percent organic (i.e. produced almost entirely free of pesticdes, toxic fertilizers, growth hormones and antibiotics) are allowed to carry the official "USDA ORGANIC" seal.

I'd prefer that number was 100%! Also don't fall for the Organic refined ingredients. Refined is still refined, even if it is organic. Your body will have a hard time breaking down, assimulating and absorbing refined ingredients whether they are organic or not.

With that in mind, whether you buy organic fruits and vegetables or not, wash all your Fruits and Veggies in Nature's Sunshine's Sunshine Concentrate all purpose soap. This will help you to remove all residue off the skin of the fresh produce.

Pat Cassidy
“Sincerely seeking relief from chronic health problems, I discovered Nature’s Sunshine Products 27 years ago. My life changed completely from that day forward. Not only has Nature’s Sunshine changed my life and my health, but it has offered a tremendous financial opportunity that allowed me to have a lot of fun being home with my family and still make a very good living in my home-based business.

Nature’s Sunshine also helped me to discover that not only did I enjoy getting up in front of an audience where I could share my knowledge and love of the herbs, but that I did it with a lot of quick wit and humorous stories. I am jokingly called the “Erma Bombeck” of herbs. Why not make learning fun. People can usually remember funny stories. Plus, thanks to my family and customers, I get plenty of material and it’s all true.

I am a Naturopathic Doctor, Master Herbalist, Certified Natural Health Practitioner and a Certified Nutritional Consultant. I am a Regional Manager with Nature’s Sunshine. I have a degree from Cleveland State University. I am married to an exceptionally understanding husband and have two great sons. I have been blessed with a great daughter-in-law, who is my assistant, and I have recently become a grandmother.”

Texas managers - Health Freedom Alert

To view this email as a web page, go here.

RE: Texas H.B. 2644

Dear Texas Managers:

We recently received the information below from the Sunshine Health Freedom
Foundation. We strongly urge you to review the material enclosed and pass
the information along to your downline Members.

As mentioned in the Texas Health Freedom Alert (below), we advise you to
contact your state legislators and ask them to urge Governor Perry to veto H.B.

Thank you for your continued participation and support in the fight for
legislative freedom!

Best Regards,

Denise B. Bird
Director Paralegal Services
Nature's Sunshine Products, Inc.


Colleagues and Friends of Texas Health Freedom,

As you read this, a bill is on Governor Perry's desk that will greatly harm
the way complementary and alternative health care is delivered in Texas.
Specifically, House Bill (HB) 2644, sneaked through the legislature over
Memorial Day, will make it a crime for any health care professional to touch a
client while performing any service without a license.
We cannot allow this to stand. Here's how you, your family and your circle
of influence can help. (This advice was offered by James Jonas, our Coalition
lobbyist and one of the top lobbyists in the country. The actions are
numbered in order of priority; please ask all to do number 1. AND 2. as a minimum;
if you want to do the rest, go for it!):

1. Contact the district offices of your state senator and representative
(not members of the US Congress!). Go to
http://www.texashealthfreedom.com and
click on "Who's My Rep?" in the upper left corner for contact info. Call
each district office and ask that your state senator and representative ask Gov.
Perry to veto HB 2644 .
If you like, you may read the letter text below to
the staffer you speak with, beginning with Please ask (your state rep. or
senator) to ask Gov. Perry to veto HB 2644. Then continue with the second

2. Write a letter to Gov. Perry (preferably delivered priority mail) as

Office of the Governor
P.O. Box 12428
Austin, Texas 78711-2428.

Sample Letter
Dear Governor Perry,
I respectfully urge you to veto HB 2644. My and my family's freedom of
health care choice is as important to me as my freedom of speech. Enactment of
this deeply flawed bill would forever damage my access to complementary and
alternative health care in Texas. (If a practitioner, add: As a (fill in your
specialty), this bill would also irreparably damage my ability to offer my
services to my clients, and my ability to make a living.)
Further, I am very angry that this bill lumps reputable people (if a
practitioner: me) in the same category as known lawbreakers in a misguided attempt
to curb the lawbreakers' activities. The law abiding citizens of Texas (I)
do not deserve such shameful treatment at the hands of this state.
Please do the right thing regarding HB 2644: veto it!


(Name and address)
If you live in or near Austin, hand delivering your letter has even more
impact. Gov. Perry's Capitol office address is: State Capitol, 1100 Congress,
Room 2S. 1.

3. Call Gov. Perry at (800) 252-9600 (Austin area (512) 463-1782). You may
read the text above if you wish.

4. Fax Gov. Perry the above at (512) 463-1849.

5. E-mail Gov. Perry the above from the web site at

cf14&t=) .

During past legislative sessions we have been able to muster a huge response
(over a third of a million inputs) to defeat bills such as this. Let's not
let the underhanded tactics of a few misguided legislators destroy health
freedom in Texas. Get this important information to ALL the people in your
circle who support our effort. We are aiming for at least this many inputs to
Gov. Perry's office by June 12th; the absolute deadline is midnight June 17th.
Thank you for your help!

Peter McCarthy, ND
Chair, TX Health Freedom Coalition

Dear Health Enthusiast:

Health Freedom Advocates OPPOSE S1082/H1561 Subtitle B: Reagan-Udall Foundation S1082/H.R. 1561 sets up a non-profit corporation called the Reagan-Udall Foundation that would give the FDA a new and expanded role to be part of a Foundation with the purpose of implementing goals of the FDA in the area of new drug development. This means that the same organization that will be developing drug evaluation technology is also enmeshed in the agency that regulates the drug approval process, thus creating a situation that could potentially reduce the safety of the drugs and products made available to the public.

In addition to being focused on drug assessment technology development, the Senate added language to the bill which jeopardizes health freedom. The Senate version now includes foods, safety. The inclusion of food safety amendments, and the inclusion in the original bill of foods and dietary supplement assessment in the purpose of this non-profit is completely unacceptable to freedom advocates because it could mean down the road that foods, dietary ingredients and dietary supplements would be at risk for being treated like drugs when evaluated by the FDA with their new tools. Foods and dietary supplements in the U.S. are not currently regulated as drugs, but are regulated as foods under DSHEA. Foods and dietary supplements are considered nutrients generally regarded as safe and the evaluation of their safety is based on whether they cause a significant risk of harm as opposed to being evaluated under the toxic drug risk/benefit assessment. Because of this assumption of safety, with the burden of proof on the government to show harm rather than risk/benefit, we have a wide variety of foods and supplements in the marketplace.

If foods and dietary supplements were ever to be evaluated as drugs with technology developed for drugs, instead of as natural nutrients with complex natural processes, we run the risk of natural products being incorrectly assessed as harmful and taken off the market, and losing access to many wonderful foods and nutrients that we currently use.

Foods and dietary supplements should continue to be treated as food (DSHEA) and evaluated under food standards and technology instead of with toxic drug risk/benefit assessment tools. To accomplish this, an amendment must be added to the current bill.

The following amendments are being recommended:
Proposed amendment to S 1082 and HR 1561:
The bills are hereby amended to prohibit the Foundation or Institute from evaluating the health benefit or efficacy of foods, dietary ingredients, and dietary supplements and to limit review of foods, dietary ingredients and dietary supplements to a determination of whether they are safe. In assessing whether dietary ingredients and dietary supplements are safe, the Foundation or Institute shall not compare product risks with health benefits or efficacy. Instead, the Foundation or Institute shall determine whether the product presents a significant risk of illness or injury under conditions of use recommended or suggested in labeling, or if no conditions of use are recommended or suggested in labeling, under ordinary conditions of use.

This bill passed the Senate and is now in the House. We need as many people as possible to email, write or call your legislators to demand that the above amendment be added.
