Under Pressure? This Can Help You “Cool” Down!

I was 5 minutes late to my meter on Wilshire Blvd. And when I arrived… yep, you guessed it, they were towing me. I cried, begged, pleaded and paid several hundred dollars to get the guy to take my car down. This all happened while I was leaving my lawyers office rushing to get my friend to LAX and then back in time to pick up my daughter…can anyone say stress?

I use Bach Rescue Remedy to combat times like this! Designed to heal emotional imbalances naturally, such as stress and anxiety, it is fast-working and helps you calmly deal with even the worst situations. The product is available in sprays, drops (for under the tongue or in water) and creams. I carry it in my purse with me at all times! 

Unlike prescription medications, Rescue Remedy is Read More »

Optimal Repair Blend Vs. Optimal Repair Capsules… What’s The Big Difference?

menu_repairWe have a slew of supplements and programs for all of your needs so we understand the need to ask us questions to help you determine the best choice. So keep those questions coming! Email us at info@eastwestessentials.com.

Q: What is the difference between the Optimal Repair Capsules and Optimal Repair Blend?

A: Great question! The Optimal Repair Blend has all of the nutrient support, antioxidants, organic vegetables, fruits, digestive enzymes and probiotic support needed to help support an exhausted, stressed body, along with an adaptogen profile designed for complete adrenal support. Some clients, however, can’t use the adaptogens or absorb them without the extra complete support of nutrition.

The Optimal Repair capsules are several adaptogen herbs in one blend. They have several additional adaptogens than the powder contains. It’s a straight adaptogen formula without the added nutritional support.

These two products can be taken together or separately, depending on your needs!

Rich, hearty soup is a staple in the winter months, and pumpkin soup is a favorite for holiday dinners. Our East West Essentials co-founder, Dr. Jeanne Wilson, today shares some insight into pumpkins and Eastern culture, and her favorite pumpkin soup recipe. Yum!

In Chinese Medicine we consider the color of foods for their medicinal value. Yellow foods, such as pumpkins, are a yin or “cooling” foods.

Yellow foods help invigorate the functions of the spleen and stomach, help regain one’s health, and improve the secretion of a woman’s hormones. They also have a curative effect on the digestive system, and improve one’s memory! Good for diabetes, insomnia, fevers, menopausal hot flashes etc.

To Eat Or Not To Eat With Supplements


Keep those questions coming! Our co-founders and experts Dr. Jeanne Wilson and Heather Wilson love hearing from you! Today we are covering a very common topic… do you really need to eat when you take your supplements?

Q: Just curious… should the Optimal Repair capsules be taken with or without food? Or does it make a difference? Thank you! 

A: Great question! We get asked this very thing quite often in our East West Essentials’ clinics! Ultimately either way is okay, it just depends on how your body reacts and how you feel best. Herbs are most potent without food because they absorb better on an empty stomach, although if you have a sensitive stomach you can take with food. There is no good that comes from you taking a supplement on an empty stomach and then getting sick – better to take it with a full glass of water and a small snack!
