Of the umpteen enterprises we know of, how many operate to yield profit for their partner firms and customers? It may seem ludicrous to even ask this question, but surprisingly, the entrepreneur this story aims to uncover banks on just the idea to climb the ladder of success. Visham Sikand’s Plat5 Consultancy, which was established in 2007, is a ‘profit delivery’ company, the first and probably the only company in India to generate profit for its client company at zero cost. It’s almost like Sikand promises profit in return for profit. This he does by offering innovative concepts to customers of the client corporate company in return for a certain fee.
In less than two years, Sikand’s Plat5 has generated close to Rs100 crore as revenue, and has partnered with some of the biggest corporate groups across the world. The company has a complete monopoly over the concept and has already sold its novel ideas to over a million customers. Sikand is hopeful of drawing two million customers in a very short time. 
In the year following the set up of Plat5, Sikand also forayed into the sphere of medicine and established Indian Health Organisation (IHO) Pvt Ltd, the first company in India to launch ‘Health Plans’. With a network of more than 1,000 labs and doctors, the firm has already made its presence felt in a big way. 
“IHO network of doctors is bigger than most big standalone hospitals or labs in the country. The Health Plans it offers takes care of all the pre hospitalisation needs of a patient, especially those not covered by insurance. In last three months, IHO has tied up with some of the biggest corporate and insurance companies for its innovative launch,” said a proud Sikand. 
As for the plat5 products, they have been tried and tested and valued by over one million customers. The company has been able to efficiently meet the ever growing needs of the Indian masses by working towards providing lifestyle benefits like travel, vacation, dining, high-end merchandise and most importantly, health.
For the past two years, Sikand has directed his focus on the financial sector. But now, since the company has managed to secure a customer base of over one million, Sikand plans to head bang on towards other equally important sectors. 

“All of us have just one life. And I want to live mine with thrill and excitement. I had a clear understanding of my strengths and what I wanted to pursue. I waned to work on my own terms, and create wealth by means of my innate entrepreneurial skills. So here I am, doing exactly what I envisaged,” he said when asked why he chose to be an entrepreneur instead of opting for a regular 9-5 job.
He was ready to face challenges and overcome them too. One of the biggest hurdles Sikand successfully managed to get over was the downturn in the financial sector. “We kept focusing on the next step forward and did everything in our capacity to minimise risks,” said Sikand.
Plat5’s biggest achievement so far is to have emerged as a profitable enterprise for itself and the partner company as well. And this was possible only because of Sikand’s unique concept and his extraordinary ability to take the company miles ahead of the set goals.
Sikand was recently awarded for being the ‘Youngest Speaker’ at TIECON, where he guided other start ups on how to develop their ideas in an innovative way for a successful career as an entrepreneur. Plat5 has been featured by various media houses for its ‘true innovation’, but the most honourable of these has been the coverage given by CNBC.  
It is these achievements, the drive to create wealth and the positive feedback of the customers that have kept Sikand going through the ups and down of his entrepreneurial journey. But complacency was never for this biz mastermind. Sikand has a plethora of other plans that he hopes to implement to take his venture to greater heights. The foremost is to launch another new-age company. He also plans to cross the 100 crore turnover mark and ensure that IHO has a presence in about 30 cities in India, operating with a panel of more than 4,000 doctors.

Tips to budding entrepreneurs — Setting up an enterprise is just about fighting it out. One has to be prudent and unique to make it big.

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you probably know that I'm a dry shampoo junkie (oily hair and skin + sideswept bangs means I go through dry shampoos like water). I have reviewed many, many drugstore dry shampoos on this blog over the years, but this year my game has been slipping. There are so many new-for-2014 dry shampoos at the drugstore that I can barely keep up!

I will be reviewing both of the new-for-2014 Suave dry shampoos in the near future, and I'll probably review at least one of the three new Pantene dry shampoos soon as well. Today, I'm reviewing one of the three new Herbal Essences dry shampoos.  I haven't been able to find the Body Envy Dry Shampoo in my area yet and, unfortunately, I won't be reviewing the Color Me Happy Dry Shampoo because I strongly disliked the scent (sorry). So let's take a look at Naked, which is the third new dry shampoo formula from Herbal Essences:
 My greasy, disgusting bangs after two days without shampooing.
 Immediately after applying Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo.
After working Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo into my roots,
and then combing my bangs into place.

I found this dry shampoo at my local Target a while back and the first thing that drew me to this can was the sleek packaging. I don't know why, but I love the matte white finish on the bottle and I love the clean, simple graphics:

Most dry shampoos contain a key ingredient that absorbs oil. The most common oil-absorbing ingredients in drugstore dry shampoos seem to be rice starch (Batiste and got2b), aluminum starch octenylsuccinate (Dove, Suave, Psssst! and TRESemme) and tapioca starch (Herbal Essences and Pantene).

Personally, dry shampoos that contain rice starch tend to work the very best for my oily hair (which is probably why some of  my favorite dry shampoos of all-time are Batiste and got2b). I also have had good luck with products that use aluminum starch indoctrinate (I adore Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo). But I can't recall ever using a dry shampoo with tapioca starch before (I may have, but I just can't remember it since I've used so, so many dry shampoos over the years).

RECENTLY, eight female friends in their 30's and 40's gathered for lunch at Coco Pazzo Teatro on West 46th Street. After two weeks of rain, the sun was shining, the women were in high spirits, and after one showed a picture of the man she is dating (an underwear model), talk turned to spring fever, love, sex -- and Viagra.
''I'd try it,'' one woman said, sipping a Kir royals.
''I'd try it, too,'' chimed in another, a pink flush creeping up her decolletage.
''After aryl nitrate in college, why not?'' burbled another.

The waiter lingered a little too long while clearing the salad plates, eager to eavesdrop, and the point was made. Everyone is awfully curious about what the male potency pill might do for women.
The scientific community is curious, too. Just as Viagra helps men with erectile dysfunction by increasing blood flow to the penis, it causes blood to flow to women's sexual organs, potentially increasing sensitivity.
But even before the results are in from studies of the drug's effect on women's sexual arousal and satisfaction, a number of women, inevitably, are stepping into the breach on their own to try it. They do not necessarily complain of sexual dysfunction, but simply want to satisfy their curiosity.
There are no figures available on how many women are experimenting with off-label use of Viagra, but call any urologist who has written Viagra prescriptions for men and you will hear of a wife, a partner or a girlfriend who has tried it.
This handful of women around the country have access to Viagra because their partners (or generous friends) have prescriptions, or their profession allows them access to prescription drugs. And they are willing to try it out, despite doctors' warnings that no one knows what the potential long-term side effects might be for women.
Take Dr. Susan C. Vaughan, 34, a psychiatrist in Manhattan. She considers herself a healthy, normal woman. Everything that should work, does.
But come to think of it, she said she wouldn't mind trying Viagra.
''I've come across a number of women who are curious about it,'' Dr. Vaughan said. ''Some of them are taking Prozac or similar drugs, and find that those medications are affecting their sexual response. And then there are lots of normal women who are, frankly, just curious. They're wondering: 'How good can this get? Can it get even better?' ''
A 42-year-old nurse in New Jersey, who like most women in this article refused to be quoted except on condition of anonymity, said she tried Viagra for the first time last weekend. She wanted to be able to discuss the drug's effects with patients; she also thought it might help with the fact that she is reluctant to have sex at certain times in her menstrual cycle.
''I only see my boyfriend every two weeks because we live in different states,'' she explained. ''And if I'm not in the mood on one of those weekends, well, then there goes the month. I've been with him for about two and a half years, and it's just not as exciting as it used to be.''

Last Saturday night, she swallowed a blue, diamond-shaped Viagra pill, which she sneaked from a cache in the office where she works. The dosage was 50 milligrams, the standard for male sexual dysfunction. She chose not to tell her partner. ''We were watching television, just a regular movie,'' she said, noting that after an hour she began to feel ''a fullness. I can't say it was a tingling, but it was some effect of the increased blood flow to the area.'' The couple retreated to the bedroom, and the pill began to work its alleged magic.

''I have to say it was great,'' the woman said. ''It was animistic. I can definitely say it was not a placebo effect. I'm a nurse, and I'm trained to recognize those things.'' Of the side effects reported by male users of Viagra -- a drop in blood pressure, a mild headache, a blue tint to the vision, a flushed face -- she reported only one: exceedingly rosy cheeks, which she explained to her boyfriend as springtime allergies. She has no hesitancy about trying the drug again, despite doctors' warnings that women of childbearing age should not take the drug. ''I've had children, and I was using birth control,'' she explained.
Dr. Jennifer Berman, a urologist at the University of Maryland in Baltimore, is conducting a study of the effects of Viagra on women who have some level of sexual dysfunction and is giving the drug only to those who have had hysterectomies or are postmenopausal.
''We're not giving it to women of childbearing potential because we're just not sure of the effects on women of childbearing age,'' she said.
Dr. Stanley Bloom, a urologist in Livingston, N.J., who plans to study the effects of Viagra on women, uses harsher warnings. ''There's a lot of curiosity and there's going to be more and more experimentation,'' he said. ''I see a lot of men, and invariably some of them are going to give it to their partners. But we should be cautious. Do you remember thalidomide? You can't be too blase with this stuff. No one could have foreseen the disastrous effects of that drug.''

Eliminating Arthritis - Yes it can be done, I did it!

Posted by Bills Consolidation Friday, October 31, 2014 0 comments

n the world of regular medicine the belief is that they can help you with the symptoms of arthritis (or any other disease), but there is no cure. I didn't want to believe that, and I am proof of the fact that Arthritis can be overcome.
Fourteen years ago I had a surgery where I lost 40% of my blood. I woke up hurting all over, the pain from the surgery wasn't anything in comparison to the head to toe pain I was in. A few weeks after I got out of the hospital I went to my doctor and told him of the pain I was in. I thought that I had picked up some strange virus - he tested my blood and found that I had full-blown Rheumatoid Arthritis. Over the years previous to this I had little bouts of arthritis for a day or two usually in my shoulder or knee, but this time was different. I wasn't using the Christopher formulas back then like I do now, so for the first year I was going from one product to another trying to get relief. I honestly thought that I would end up in a wheelchair because I wasn't getting any better. I had gout so bad in my feet that I couldn't wear shoes, so I wore sandals or slippers. My hands were so swollen that I couldn't open or close my hands and my strength was nonexistent, I was dropping things all the time. My feet, ankles, knees, elbows, hands and back hurt all the time and I would get flare-ups in my jaw that would make eating very difficult because my teeth couldn't meet to chew.
After that terrible first year I went into my local health food store which specialized in the Christopher products and started on the road to healing. I began with the Jurassic Green which I thought was a funny product to be taking for this problem, but after the first week on this grass juice I was 50% better. The inflammation came way down in my hands and feet, the relief was incredible. I could always tell if I forgot to take it because my hands would swell up and remind me. Jurassic Green is one that I still take today even though the arthritis is gone. I have found that it helps keep Kidney Stones from forming and hay fever gets less and less severe every year that I stay on it.
The other two products that I started on were Complete Tissue & Bone Formula (capsules & ointment) and the Joint Formula. The thing about these two formulas is they have similar herbs in them, so I thought that possibly one of them could do the job alone. I would try Complete Tissue Formula alone and would still be in pain, then I would try just the Joint Formula alone and I was still in pain. I found that when I took both of them together they took care of the pain as well as the healing. For the first few years I took 3 to 4 capsules four times a day of both formulas and then over time was able to cut back until I didn't need them anymore.  I would add Dandelion capsules when the gout was really bad in my feet, it helped break up the uric acid crystals that made it feel as if I was walking on broken glass inside my feet. 
I also had to look at my diet and eliminated for the most part beef and sugar which seemed to be the two culprits that caused the most severe flare-ups. The herbal program was not an overnight program, or even a one month or a one year program. It took me a full four years to overcome arthritis 100%. I would talk to people during the this time about what I was doing and they would say you have been doing this for how long and aren't all better yet?? They didn't wait for the rest of the story and I'm sure that those people are still dealing with the same pain that they were in back then. After taking classes at The School of Natural Healing I learned that cleansing would have helped me to heal much faster, as described in Dr. Christopher's notes that follow below. My hope is that people will learn that they can overcome Arthritis or any other disease, and that the Christopher products make that healing possible.

Dr. Christopher answers the question about arthritis below, used by permission, The School of Natural Healing, Springville, Utah.

Eliminating Arthritis
Question: Can something be done besides just working on the effect of arthritis? Can't something be done to eliminate arthritis instead of just bringing temporary relief of pain?
Answer: Yes. Many people have had permanent relief from arthritis, not just temporary.
When we speak of arthritis we speak of a general term. Actually there are over forty different forms of this disease. They all stem back to a toxic condition of the body. The treatment of this condition must be from the point of reversing the cause by rebuilding the entire body to a higher nontoxic condition, as mentioned in the article on rebuilding and cleaning the bowel. It is inevitable that when an arthritic is badly constipated, the stiffness and pain are worse. The procedure is: (1) clean the bowel with
Lower Bowel Formula, and (2) detoxify the body by clearing the blood stream of poor blood with the Blood Stream Formula, and have a good powerful flow of healthy blood coursing through the body to deliver food to the area and carry off toxic waste. Use our arthritis formula [Joint Formula].

Cayenne should be used six days a week, each week of program. This herb is, as are the others, a food and not a drug. Work up to a teaspoon of Cayenne three times a day.
Apple cider vinegar and blackstrap molasses are also beneficial. Use a tablespoon of each in a glass of distilled water three times each day. Take a tablespoon or more of wheat germ oil three times a day.
Remember to drink no less than one gallon of pure steam-distilled water for a person 130 lbs. or over, every day (less or more, one ounce of distilled water to each pound the person weighs).
For severe and painful joints or areas, the use of Complete Tissue & Bone Formula is useful.... The reaction on arthritis is this: the Oak Bark is an astringent and tones up the area, and it is also high in Potassium Chloride to keep the fibrin in motion and not allow further deposit accumulations. The Mullein and Lobelia work on the glands and lymph system to keep the area clear and ready to carry off unwanted debris; Wormwood relieves pain; the Scullcap keeps the spinal cord alert and working smoothly to assist in body motion; Comfrey Root is a cell proliferant, causing the good cells to grow rapidly and push off the dead cells and unwanted accumulations (note that in the syrup and capsules Comfrey has been replaced with other herbs due to the FDA - if you would like to use the product with comfrey then order the bulk BF&C); Walnut Bark is high in iodide and is one of the few plants specific in clearing fungus and is extremely high in Potassium Chloride for the blood and lymph, Potassium Sulfate for skin and mucous membrane, and Potassium Phosphate for the brain and nerve food. The Gravel Root is a solvent to leach off the inorganic calcification (from tap water and processed foods, etc.) and make place for the organic calcium derived from the Comfrey, Oak Bark, and some of the other herbs used in this combination.
We use this formula Complete Tissue & Bone Formula (BF&C) as a fomentation over the painful areas, and if the case is severe, follow the fomentation procedure mentioned in Curing the Incurables. Some of this tea, a cup or more daily, is taken internally with good results.
To make the fomentation stronger simmer the strained tea down to 1/2 its original amount (called 3 power) or simmer down to 1/4 its original amount (called 7 power). If you wish to drink some of the concentrated tea, dilute it with distilled water. Drink a cup or more of this tea each day.
There are many other aids to help, but space does not allow more to be given to this subject. Never use dry heat for arthritis, always use moist heat such as a hot water bottle wrapped with a damp towel, fomentations, etc. Dry heat solidifies the inorganic minerals into place, while moist heat aids in dispersing them. [NL 1-1]
Jurassic Green is available in capsules and powder.
Complete Tissue and Bone Formula is available in capsules, syrup, ointment, oil and bulk cut and powder as BF&C.
Joint Formula is available in capsules and bulk powder as AR-1.
Lower Bowel Formula is available in capsules, extract and bulk powder as Fen LB.
Blood Stream Formula is available in capsules, extract and bulk powder as Red Clover Combination.

Essential Oils for ADD/ADHD

Posted by Bills Consolidation 0 comments

I want to tell people about a great little essential oil for ADD/ADHD that has been added to Herbs First web site. Attention Deficit Disorder is close to my heart since I raised a very rambunctious ADD boy who is all grown up, yay! We worked on diet and used herbs to get him through his school years and I was quite relieved when he graduated from high school. He got married in December to a great gal and they love each other very much.

In a two year study (1999-2001) Dr. Terry Friedmann M. D. found significant results when children with ADD/ADHD were administered therapeutic essential oils by inhalation. The study was on children between ages six to fourteen. Each group was pre-tested using a baseline evaluation with real time EEG and the T.O.V.A. Scale. Each subject was tested on each oil for 30 days and then reevaluated, and then another oil was used for 30 days and reevaluated, until each of the oils had been tested.

The oil was administered by inhalation 3 times per day for 30 days. An inhalation device was also used at night to administer a continuous inhalation of oil. The inhalation of the oils settled the children’s brain waves back to normal patterns and improved scholastic performance and behavioral patterns.
Lavender increased performance by 53%

Cedarwood increased performance by 83%

Vetiver increased performance by 100%

Vetiver Essential Oil Results with therapeutic-grade essential oils for ADD and ADHD may help with focus, learning, calming and grounding. I would certainly remove sugar, artificial sweeteners, flavors and colors, processed foods and high fructose corn syrup from the diet keeping in mind that diet is essential!

For my child I would use Vetiver on the bottom of both feet and especially the big toes, which is the brain reflex points, as well as on the temple area of the forehead and across the shoulders. I like to put about 10 drops of any carrier oil into my hand and add a few drops of the essential oil, mix and apply to the desired areas. I would diffuse the oil into the air at night. This is an easy and affordable alternative treatment for ADD/ADHD and would certainly be one to try on autistic children as well.

I would love to hear how Vetiver works for your kids.

Let Foods Be Your Medicine

Posted by Bills Consolidation 0 comments

The three herbs I am going to talk about are recognizable by most people as foods, confirming Dr. Christopher’s saying of “let foods be your medicine”.

Broad Bean is one that jumped out to me as I was not familiar with its medicinal use before adding the page. Broad Beans contain Lysine which helps to build immunity and combat and prevent fever blisters and herpes. Broad Beans contain L-dopamine, known to correct Parkinson's Disease and other shaking disorders. We have Broad Bean available in extract and bulk whole bean.

Beet root
I love “juicing” but often don’t have the time to prepare the vegetables, much less juice them. Green smoothies are a much quicker option for me. But sometimes my green smoothies end up being a rather unattractive unappetizing color. I have found a great solution to the color problem and have been adding Beet root powder to my smoothies. Beet root is rich in minerals: potassium, phosphorus, calcium, sulfur, iodine, iron, manganese, chlorine, and copper, as well as traces of the rare metals rubidium and caesium; vitamins B1, B2, niacin, B6, B12, C, P, and beta carotene; flavonoids; and amino acids. I am adding a more palatable “color” to my smoothies as well as an abundance of nutrients. Beet root is available in bulk powder and vegicaps.
Acai Berry
Another single bulk herb that I like to add to my smoothies to improve
the color as well as nutrient value is Acai Berry powder, though more often I add it to my Jurassic Green concoction for the added flavor. Acai Berry may be the world’s most powerful anti-aging food. Acai Berries possess an unmatched ability to absorb free radicals that attack the body and contribute to the aging process and disease. High in Anthocyanins which have been shown to restore mental function, concentration, memory and mental clarity. Due to their ability to protect the brain from free radical damage and their support of healthy, cellular tissue growth, anthocyanins are reputed to be one of the most valuable anti-aging antioxidants known. Acai Berry is available in organic bulk powder and vegicaps.

I hope that you will enjoy using these foods as herbs as much as I do. Broad Bean, Beet root and Acai Berry are just a few of the great herbs that we have available at Herbs First.
