Settle rough seas and welcome calm waters …
A fast-paced modern lifestyle can be difficult for both adults and children. Trying activities such as work deadlines, job interviews, school competitions and public interactions don’t make it any easier either.
It’s not uncommon to find oneself a little overwhelmed at the thought of a particular upcoming event or situation. Sometimes demands may be so great that it is difficult to slow down and take a deep breath, causing us to worry about everything.
What else can you do?
A lot can be done to support a healthy ability to relax and slow down. One way of doing this is to keep your mind producing its own natural feel good chemicals by eating lots of fresh fruit and vegetables and whole grain foods, getting plenty of fresh air and sunshine and exercising regularly.
Practicing relaxation techniques, meditation or even taking time for a regular walk on the beach can all help to reduce stress levels and facilitate a feeling of calm – helping us to wind down and relax.
Natural remedies can also help to support the nervous system and to keep nerves settled and soothed – to enable us to cope more easily with the everyday stresses of our modern existence. In fact, natural remedies have been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years to support the healthy functioning of the brain and nervous system.
In more recent times, research has confirmed this traditional wisdom. There are now many published clinical studies demonstrating the ability of a range of herbs to support the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system and maintain a healthy equilibrium – which will assist with staying calm under pressure. (Akhondzadeh S, Naghavi HR, Vazirian M, Shayeganpour A, Rashidi H, Khani M. “Passion flower in the treatment of generalized anxiety: a pilot double-blind randomized controlled trial with oxazepam.” J Clin Pharm There. 2001;26(5):369-373.)

Attenuation of laboratory-induced stress in humans after acute administration of Melissa officinalis (Lemon Balm). Psychosom Med. 2004 Jul-Aug;66(4):607-13.)
Lavender (Lavandula augustifolia) is another well-known herb which has made its home in countries all over the world. Lavender contains the active ingredients tannins, coumarins, flavonoids, triterpenoids and volatile oil. It is best known for its soothing properties and as a tonic to support the nervous system. (Lewith GT, Godfrey AD, Prescott P, et al. “A single-blinded, randomized pilot study evaluating the aroma of lavandula augustifolia as a treatment for mild insomnia.” J Altern Complement Med. 2005; 11:631-637).
Passion flower (Passiflora incarnata) is regarded very highly by traditional herbalists for its soothing properties as a general nerve tonic. In modern herbalism, Passiflora incarnata is known as a natural aid for the nerves. This has been supported by clinical trials. (Akhondzadeh S, Naghavi HR, Vazirian M, Shayeganpour A, Rashidi H, Khani M. “Passion flower in the treatment of generalized anxiety: a pilot double-blind randomized controlled trial with oxazepam.” J Clin Pharm There. 2001;26(5):369-373.)
How do I use PureCalm?
Dilute drops in a small amount of water or juice, and sip slowly. Alternatively, hold bottle upside down and drop directly into the mouth.
Adults & Children 10+: Take 10-20 drops 3 times daily or use as needed for immediate relief.
Children 6-9: Take 1 drop per year of age 3 times daily.
Caution: Safety during pregnancy has not yet been established. However, if you are pregnant or nursing, try Triple Complex Calm Tonic to safely and effectively relieve panic, stress, worry and nervous tension.
How long until I see results?
PureCalm contains three powerful all natural proven herbs in concentrated medicinal extract as a tincture formula that facilitates rapid absorption into the blood stream.
This means that the healthy functioning of the nervous system is instantly supported, and you will get optimum results with regular use.
While conventional medicine works by often treating just the symptoms, natural medicine strives to create holistic balance in the body to support systemic health, relieve ailments, and help prevent future disease. Unlike pharmaceutical drugs, the natural ingredients in our remedies support overall health and functioning (rather than just suppressing symptoms).
People respond to natural medicine in different ways, some of folks experience immediate results while many others have reported optimal benefits taking effect within 3-6 weeks. To ensure you receive optimum results it is important to take natural remedies as directed and remain consistent. You may also find that a smaller maintenance dose is beneficial for ongoing support, many customers report taking a regular maintenance dose as part of a preventative program for continued health and well-being.
How long will a bottle last?
One bottle of PureCalm will last approximately 30 days (depending on frequency of use).
Step 9 – Reduce the stress in your life.
“I came across your internet site when I desperately was searching for answers why my 12 year old son was having anxiety …He was on [medication] but after about 1 year the [issues] came back and the doctor did not answer my questions. PureCalm works within 10 minutes. The first time I gave it to my son I was blown away how quickly it worked. I tried it out on myself when I had a really bad day, because I wanted to know how Pure Calm works. It helped me, too, within a few minutes just by blocking those disruptive thoughts that made my day so miserable. That was 4 years ago. PureCalm also helped me to taper my son off the [medication]. It has its place in my medicine cabinet and always will. PureCalm is an amazing product.” – Regina W., TX, USA
“I’ve NEVER written a testimonial about any product before but I know there are people like me who are currently suffering… I’ve been using PureCalm for about three weeks and IT WORKS! I was on mind numbing [medications] for 5 years… I stopped taking them and I was about to start them again because the [issue] was getting worse. I can’t believe how well this stuff works. I’ve been using it twice per day in the early morning and afternoon along with my usual dose of fish oil. I’m able to carry on a conversation without going blank and I no longer have the need react to situations… AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!” – Arilia, USA
“This stuff really works. I feel so much better taking it, when I don’t everything is horrible. So I definitely take this everyday, but I only take PureCalm once, and the MindSoothe once, and it works great. I recommended it to my boyfriend and he is so much easier to get along with.” – Lily M., AZ, USA
“I started using PureCalm close to 2 years and was waking up each day to anxiousness due to menopausal symptoms. I had wanted to go through this time without prescription or hormone replacements. So as I began to research. I came across Native Remedies and decided to try PureCalm for starters and I can tell you the results were almost immediate. The anxiety I felt was gone and I then added MindSoothe to the mixture as well. The combination was great and I felt like a new person. I had managed to work through the menopausal period with almost no symptoms. Not only have I recommended PureCalm to 2 other friends and both had the same results. But the real testimony I am writing about is my husband… His blood pressure would go high every time he was in a doctor’s office. It always caused a lot of stress because he would have to go through so much aggravation to be able to get permission to play sports etc. Well this continued through his adult years as well and every time with work physicals he would have to go through numerous visits and re-testing of his blood pressure before they would admit that he did not have true high blood pressure but [anxiety at the clinics. Each year this would cause him stress because when time for company physical he would yet again go through this same ordeal. Well, 2 years ago his doctor put him on … medication, against his argument, because she felt he could have blood pressure [issues] because of the stress of having it read at her office, but then what’s to say that job or life stress was not doing that to him as well. Now that he was in his early 50’s, she felt it was too much of a risk not to treat it, even though he was taking his [readings] regularly at home and the workplace and it was never high. He was not happy about it but agreed to it, but even over the 2 years when he went for his blood work his pressure would be high even if he took 2 pills before he went but the minute he was out of there it was back down. So, for the last 2 months my husband experimented and took PureCalm also 3x a day and for a week before his yearly appointed he did not take his blood pressure medicine. When he went in just yesterday for the very first time in almost 30 years his blood pressure was the best reading they had ever gotten for him in the doctors office!! The nurse let out a big wow!! Mark confessed that he had not taken his blood pressure medicine for a week(not that we would ever advise any of doing that with out their doctors approval). They were shocked and amazed and when his doctor came in she was equally surprised and pleased as well to the point that she is actually finally agreeing and taking him off of his prescription and having him come back in 2 weeks to see if it remains the same! By the time we left the office we had given both the doctor and the nurse the Native Remedies site! I am so grateful for coming across this site!” – Kathy, NY, USA

Step 9 – Reduce the stress in your life.
The Calm Within CD™
This The Calm Within CD is a must buy if you want to start Meditating and Reducing your Sress. It’s absolutely wonderful, and I don’t travel anywhere without it!
This Relaxing CD promotes relaxation and reduces stress.
- Relaxes your mind & body and reduces stress
- Maintains emotional health naturally
- Supports a feeling of confidence and well-being
- Supports healthy sleeping patterns and rest through guided imagery and progressive relaxation exercises
- Serenity and harmony through sound
Everyday stress and tension are part of our modern lifestyle and can affect almost everyone at some time in their life. During times of increased mental demands, the brain sends signals to various body systems to leap into action. When the psychological and physical factors of tension are felt, the body increases its release of certain stress hormones through the adrenal glands.
A prolonged increase in these hormones is not ideal and can result in compromised vitality and may influence emotional, cognitive and physical health. In order to ensure that stress does not build up and have an adverse effect on your health, it is important to find stress management techniques that will work for you.
The natural way
Nature’s soothing sounds have been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years to support the healthy functioning of the brain and nervous system, helping to encourage healthy stress management and inner peace.
In more recent times, research has confirmed this traditional wisdom. There are now many published clinical studies demonstrating the ability of soothing deep relaxation music therapy to effectively reduce stress and maintain a sense of peace and inner calm. Natures soothing sounds in the form of soothing music can also aid in recovery from a number of ailments.
(Mockel M, Stork T, Vollert J, et al. Stress reduction through listening to music: effects on stress hormones, hemodynamics and mental state in patients with arterial hypertension and in healthy persons. Dtsch Med Wochenschr 1995; 120: 745–52).
Studies also overwhelmingly support the use of progressive relaxation exercises, guided imagery, meditation and self hypnosis techniques to alleviate anxiety and depression – resulting in a greater sense of self esteem, emotional and physical well-being. Following these practices on a regular basis has also been shown to support cardiovascular as well as systemic health.
What is The Calm Within CD?
‘Close your eyes, take a deep, deep breath… and relax’
So begins The Calm Within CD, composed and recorded by our Clinical Psychologist. Based on actual therapeutic sessions used in her private practice, The Calm Within combines peaceful soothing music with progressive relaxation exercises, guided imagery and positive self scripting to provide you with an hour of therapeutic bliss whenever you need it.
This combination of therapeutic techniques and soothing deep relaxing music has been especially designed to induce a state of deep relaxation, similar to what would be achieved in therapy, effectively relieving tension and supporting the body’s natural ability to heal.
The CD is approximately one hour in length and is created to help provide all the benefits of an hour of relaxation therapy with a trained counselor – in the comfort of your own home!

“We all have the ability to calm ourselves and to create a sense of stillness and peace within us. However, many of us have lost touch with that quiet and peaceful space deep inside us and instead have learned to react to perceived stress with symptoms of panic and anxiety, feeling out of control and afraid. The Calm Within CD has been created to provide immediate relief from the symptoms of stress and everyday worries, but also to teach you how to access your own inner peace whenever you need it, putting you back in control feeling less stressed and more confident. I have helped many many clients using exactly the same techniques as you will find on the CD. Experience for yourself what it feels like to get in touch with your own inner calm.” – Michele Carelse, Clinical Psychologist
“Every evening I come home, kick off my shoes and listen to the calming CD. Everyone knows not to disturb me during this time and they don’t mind at all because I have become so much more relaxed since I started this little ritual. Afterwards I feel like I have switched off to the pressures of work and can just enjoy being with my kids and relaxing with my husband. I feel like this one CD has helped me to chill-out!” – Joyce Durham
“I love your The Calm Within CD – when I am too busy to get to my yoga classes (which is often), I listen to this at home and it really makes me feel human again. The minute I hear the words ‘Close your eyes, take a deep breath and relax…’ I can just feel every muscle in my body melting and only have to think of these words to feel myself totally relaxing. After listening to this CD I feel relaxed and ready to face the world with a clear head. I don’t know how I ever lived without it!” – Carine V.
“I received the Calm Within CD promptly and have been using it more or less consistently for the last two weeks. I have found it to be a great help in relieving stress and tension. I have a … pain condition and by listening to the CD and thereby increasing calmness and lessening my anxiety levels, it really has had a beneficial effect on the pain. Thank you for good service and a great product.” – Beth
