    Ontario Ginseng

    Product Description

    Ginseng Root – panax quinquefolium, has a long and illustrious history as one of the finest herbal tonics that one can take. Like its oriental cousin – Panax Ginseng, or its Siberian relative – Eleutherococcus Senticoccus, it is one of the few herbs that can truly be called an adaptogen. An adaptogen, as defined by L.I. Breckman and I.V. Dardymov of the former Soviet Union, possesses a normalizing influence, increases resistance to the adverse influences of a wide range of factors, and causes minimal disorder in the physiological functioning of an organism. 1 Ginseng Rt is quite capable of fulfilling these conditions. Recent research has shown Ginseng to be of benefit in normalizing blood sugar levels – whether they be low(hypoglycemia) or high(diabetes). Likewise, it has helped normalize blood pressure, raising both low blood pressure, and lowering high blood pressure.. In addition, it will help to regulate the ratio of white and red blood cells in the body, stimulate the endocrine system, and help maintain proper levels of hormones in the blood. It has been used for depression, to help increase endurance in athletes, and to combat stress and fatigue. Additional effects include a pronounced tonic effect in cardiovascular disorders, such as rheumatic heart disease, and the buildup of plaque(atherosclerosis). It will help lower serum cholesterol, and inhibit the uptake of cholesterol from foods in our diet. One of the most encouraging findings suggests that the ginsenosides found in Ginseng will help achieve “re-differentiation” of cancer cells – that is, it helps to change the cancerous cell back to normal. However, one should not look upon Ginseng as a cure-all for this condition. Finally, for those who have cancer, and receive radiation/chemotherapy, it has been found to substantially reduce the effects of radiation- nausea ,hair loss, weakness, etc. Ginseng’s remarkable benefits are attributed to the wide array of bio-chemicals found in the roots. These substances are called ginsenosides – a complex carbohydrate molecule containing a sugar and an alcohol/phenol component. There are at least six primary and seven secondary ginsenosides as well as arabinose, camphor, mucilage, resins, starches, vitamins B1, B2, Iron, phosphorus, manganese, Cobalt, Copper Sulphur and Germanium. As with most herbs, the therapeutic benefit stems from not just the active ingredients – the ginsenosides, but the synergistic balance of all the minerals and associated compounds.

    Ingredients: 100% Ontario Ginseng Root
    Suggested Dosage: Take one capsule in the morning, and another in late afternoon.
    Contra-Indications: Do not take Ginseng during pregnancy, or before retiring.
    • Pancreas Tonic

    Pancreas Tonic

    SKU: EN19. Category: .

    Product Description

    The perception of the pancreas as just being responsible for blood sugar irregularities, is only partly true: it also looks after the production of a number of key digestive enzymes: lipase, protease, and amylase. In addition, it produces Sodium Bicarbonate to neutralize the stomach acids in the food mass, as it enters the small intestine for absorption. Equally, it must be kept in mind that another of its digestive enzymes called pancreatin, not only digests proteins, but also serves to help digest cancer cells in the body. The onset of many cancers, is inextricably linked to a deficiency of the pancreas. When we suffer from digestive upsets, particularly what was once referred to as bilious colic – notable for the belching, and other eructations, both the pancreas and liver are involved. Equally, the pancreas can be the ‘dark horse’ in obstinate cases of constipation. The pancreas takes it signal from the liver; when one is deficient, it leads to the other falling down in its duties. This particular mixture of herbs will help to restore the functioning of the pancreas in these two key areas: normalizing insulin production, and that of enzymatic activity.

    Ingredients: Utah Juniper Berries, Bugleweed, Dandelion Root, Bitter Melon, Hibiscus Flowers, Dulse, Licorice Root

    Product Description

    According to many reputable health care experts, both in the field of natural healthcare and modern medicine, parasites are now a major problem. They are, or can be responsible for a plethora of conditions such as chronic fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, Chrohn’s Disease, male/female reproductive tract problems, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, anemia, erratic blood sugar levels ,poor appetite, rapid hair loss, mental or physical lethargy, bloating, poor sleep patterns, and many, many other conditions. In fact, some holistic doctors have even attributed some forms of mental illness and even psychosis, to the invasion of the mind and body by parasites. While approximately 30% reside in the intestinal tract, the remaining 70% can burrow into muscle (fibromyalgia) articulated joints (rheumatoid arthritis) the liver , spleen, pancreas (fluctuating sugar levels…), sinus cavities, soft tissue, reproductive tracts, in fact, anywhere in the body they can find a quiet little place to hang out and call home .One parasite in particular (necator americanus) can secrete a substance that tricks the immune system by masking its presence in the body. This is not to suggest that the situation is hopeless, or that we are powerless to do anything about it; on the contrary, Nature has given us many herbal agents that will help rid us of these unwanted ‘guests’. One of the first steps is to clean out the bowel (or tissues) of any accumulated matter that they can feed upon. This matter may be in the bowel – large or small, or it may be the gradual accumulation over time, of matter that has been deposited in the interstices of tissue, anywhere in the body. Ideally, the filtering aspects of the body – the liver and kidneys, should be able to handle this, but in reality,, they become clogged and underfunctioning over time. The end result is that the blood becomes very toxic and acidic…. a perfect breeding ground for parasites and other pathogens. Parasites can range in size from the microscopic protozoa , to the larger ‘helminth’ type worms such as the fish or pork tapeworm that can grow up to 20+ feet in length. Over the past 5-6 years, we have refined our formula to deal with most of the more common parasites and sizes of worms. (for serious cases of tapeworms, we have an additional Tincture to take with this formula…) We have dealt successfully with the microscopic parasites, entamoeba hystolitica, e. parvifolium, e.hartmanii, etc. This formula will also work on the blastocystis hominis parasite that can cause explosive diarrhea, as well as lumbricoid and pinworms. We have literally searched the world for the best anthelmintic or worm killing herbs, and combined them with some of the best that grow here in Ontario. This formula, combined with a change in diet, an increase in friendly bacteria in the gut, and the concerted effort to pursue an appropriate regimen will result in the elimination of these freeloaders. As with the doctors in Germany, who place their patients on a parasite cleanse once a year regardless, we do strongly recommend the same program frequency here in north America as well. Prevention as a pre-emptive approach, will work wonders for you and your family. Recommendations: Take this formula along with the bottled CLOVES and the WALNUT HULL TINCTURE. The CLOVES will kill the eggs of the parasites, and the WALNUT HULL provides powerful support to the PARA formula.

    Product Description

    A number of years ago, Ed McCabe, one of North America’s foremost authorities on Oxygen therapies, stated that the amount of available Oxygen in the environment, had dropped from 19-21% at the turn of the century, to a current 13-15%, and, in the big cities, around 9-11%. Couple this with the findings of Dr. Otto Warburg, who won the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1933, for proving (amongst other things) that cancer was caused by a lack of Oxygen at the cellular level, and one can begin to appreciate just exactly why cancer is so rampant in our world today. Yet in spite of this information, smoking continues, pollution increases, and human suffering grows in direct proportion to our continual ignorance of the basic need for Oxygen and healthy lungs to ‘capture’ it from the air that we breathe. Is it any wonder that so many people, especially in the big cities, suffer from asthma, bronchitis, lung disorders and a variety of related conditions ? Candida especially,- an example of an anaerobic or oxygen deficient condition, is aggravated by insufficient amounts of Oxygen, and our lungs inability to provide the cells of the body with generous amounts of this life-giving element . Of further concern, is that the lungs are a bit of a dumping ground for matter from the blood; not only do they exchange gases, but waste matter is deposited in the lungs from the bloodstream. The vital force of the body simply uses this venue to eliminate this ‘sludge’ from our system; however, a chronic cough soon develops, in an effort to expectorate this matter from the lungs and bronchi.It is very important to to help this process, by eliminating mucous forming foods from our diet: milk and cheese being the biggest culprits, followed by white flour products. PRANA has been formulated to help dissolve this catarrh and stimulate its expectoration. It will also help reduce inflammation , nourish alveolar tissue, and restore the lungs capacity to throw off carbon dioxide, and take in copious amounts of life giving Oxygen.

    Ingredients: Fenugreek Seeds, Elecampane Root, Wild Cherry Bark, Gum Plant, Horehound, Mullein Leaves, St. John’s Wort, Nettle, Althea Rt., Aniseseed.
    Suggested Dosage: Take 2-3 capsules, mid-morning, mid-afternoon, and mid-evening.

    SKU: EN24. Category: .

    Product Description

    Many people today suffer from what is called ‘dysbiosis’ – a term used to describe the turmoil that results from a disturbance in the innate optimum levels of friendly bacteria in the gut. Various signs and symptoms include bloating in the abdomen, excess flatulence and belching ,candida albicans in all its forms and manifestations, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, a feeling of ‘spaciness’, disordered thought processes and short term memory loss, skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema ,parasites, even some cases of depression can be attributed to the mycotoxins that ensue from this type of internal environment. This condition can be brought on by the prolonged use of antibiotics, stress, poor diet, excess intake of sugar and yeasted foods, and even poor oxygenation. It truly is one of the most prolific underlying components of diseases particular to our modern age. In addition to promoting candida and its variants ,it is an underlying component of cancer ,multiple sclerosis, AIDS, most chronic (degenerative) conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, parasites and even some allergies. The importance of maintaining a healthy colon – long a mainstay of natural health proponents and old style practitioners, has thus been corroborated by the studies today on the effects of friendly bacteria in the gut. Thus our rationale for including the various bacteria listed above…. lactobacillus acidophilus DDS(tm): this special strain of acidophilus developed and patented by Dr Kem Shahani, is much more resistant to higher temperatures ,produces a natural antibiotic called acidophilin, as well as anti-viral compounds. The b. bacterium, l. bulgaricus, and s. thermophilus all help to produce lactic acid and hydrogen peroxide; it is the latter substance that breaks down into water and a molecule of Oxygen. This is most important as the production of Oxygen helps to overcome the anaerobic bacteria, eg. those that thrive in an Oxygen deficient environment .Likewise, their production of lactic acid,along with acetic and benzoic acids, inhibit the production of pathogenic bacteria. The addition of FOS, that is fructooligosaccharides from Jerusalem artichokes, provides a nourishing base for these friendly bacteria to grow and proliferate. It is very important to help repopulate the gut with the friendly bacteria; when the lining of the intestinal tract is colonized with pathogenic bacteria, the dysbiosis referred to above, will take hold and develop into a myriad of ailments.

    Ingredients: Lactobacillus Acidophilus DDS, Bifidobacterium Bifidum, Lactobacillus Bulgaricus, Lactobacillus Rhamnosus, Lactobacillus Plantarum, Lactobacillus Salivarius, Streptococcus Thermophilus, Strepococcum Faecium, Fructooligosaccharides (FOS)
    Suggested Dosage: Take 3 capsules ½ hour BEFORE the morning meal, and again ½ hour BEFORE the evening meal.

    Notes: This preparation should be used as an adjunct in the treatment of candida albicans, parasites and many of the conditions referred to in the beginning of this fact sheet.

    Product Description

    Many years ago, my grandfather, a doctor in Scotland, would dose his children every Spring with a mixture of Sulphur and molasses. This tonic was meant to loosen the detritus of the winter diet, heavy with starch, meat and few vegetables. While well intended, the Sulphur was in elemental form, and thus tended to produce weak acids (sulphurous, etc) that did little more than tarnish the silver medallion they wore around their neck to check on the elimination of the Sulphur through the skin. While we all benefit from a regular cleansing/rebuilding regimen for the blood, it is necessary to employ those herbs that have organized Sulphur, and other minerals in their make-up. This synergistic blend includes a number of herbs, roots and barks that provide excellent germicidal, and anti-bacterial action. Further, there are herbs that provide substantial nutritive and sanative effect In addition, other herbs provide dissolving and astringent qualities, while others supply much needed minerals to help shift the (ph) balance back in favor of normal values. This formula can be combines well with SEA-LEV as an powerful restorative to the blood. Some may need KPH1 (Kidney Tonic) to assist in flushing the waste matter out . Check with a qualified practitioner if in doubt.

    Ingredients: Echinacea Angustifolia Root, Burdock Root, Spikenard Root, Oregon Grape Root, Prickly Ash Bark, Yellow Dock Root, Yarrrow, Celandine, Red Clover
    Suggested Dosage: Take 2-3 capsules, after breakfast, and again after the evening meal.
    Contra-Indications: This formula should not be taken during pregnancy; while nursing; or while on anti-coagulants

    Product Description

    One of the most common and re-occurring problems is that of disturbances in the reproductive tracts of women .In the past 10-12 years, more and more do we see examples of young girls entering the time of their menses quite early, but even then, with difficult cycles more commonly seen in women who were in their thirties before they had such problems.This latter group in turn, have noted that their monthly cycle has become progressively more difficult as the years go by. Finally, women in their forties increasingly undergo hysterectomies on the advice of their doctors, as a way to escape the protracted and difficult periods they endure. Even the onset of the menarche, brings with it disturbances in hormonal balances, and it s attendant problems of mood swings, hot flashes, disturbed sleep ,etc. Aside from hormonal components to the above problems(which are best dealt with by our OMEGA)there is a need to address the bloating ,pelvic fullness, severe cramping ,heavy and prolonged flows, and other debilitating symptoms that occur all too frequently. Attention must be paid to diet – which is a major contributor in that junk foods ,fried foods ,excessive meat consumption/sparse vegetables and fruits contribute to overly acidic, congested blood. Lifestyle and stress likewise add to the mix, with the end result that the reproductive tract , by default, can act as a channel to help eliminate toxic waste matter.This is the primary cause of the irritation to the nerves, tissue congestion, pain, etc that are experienced. It is for the above reasons, that we have designed this particular blend. These herbs and roots will help to strengthen and tone the reproductive system…. eliminating the deposition of matter in the cells ,nourishing and astringing the tissues, calming the nerves, and provide a soothing and toning influence to tissues and ligaments damaged by long term irritation.

    Ingredients: Squaw Vine, Cramp Bark, Raspberry Leaves, White Pond Lily Root, Solomon’s Seal Root, Uva Ursi Leaves, Beth Root, Lady’s Mantle, False Unicorn Root.
    Suggested Dosage: Take 3 capsules morning and again late afternoon or early evening.
    Contra-Indications: Do not take with drugstore medicines for similar conditions or during pregnancy. As the woman’s reproductive tract is sensitive, we have selected herbs with a gentle nature. They are cumulative in effect and for best results in chronic conditions, it is suggested that this formula be used for at least 6-8 months.
    • Sea-Lev

    Sea-Lev

    SKU: EN27. Category: .

    Product Description

    This combination of the previous ‘LEVITICUS’ and ‘SEA-VEG’ provides substantial amounts of two key metabolic nutrients: Iodine & Iron – the former as Potassium Iodide and the latter as Chlorides, Phosphates, Sulphates etc, of Iron. Those containing Iodine are pivotal in the stimulation of the thyroid, and the herbs containing Iron – in the regeneration of the blood. Additionally, one must consider the trace mineral profile(s) of the Nettles, Dulse and Bladderwrack, as well as their glycoproteins / mucopolysaccharide content, and the immune-potentiating ‘fucoidans’ (Bladderwrack). Viewed thus, it becomes apparent how this formula will assist the blood to provide comprehensive nourishment to the whole of the endocrine system and the body’s attendant organs, glands and systems. Further, the pH of the blood: the boundary line between acid & alkaline (base) requires plenty of the various mineral ions to determine the ideal value of between 6.5 and 7.5. When the pH is too high or too low, enzymatic activity is greatly reduced, with the resultant metabolic processes reduced to a minimum. This formula is most useful for depleted or chronic conditions of the blood and circulatory system, and as additional background support for many other conditions .

    Ingredients: Dulse, Nettles, Bladderwrack, Irish Moss, Dandelion Leaves, Blackberry Leaves, Red Clover
    Suggested Dosage: 2 – 4 capsules, twice daily. Dosage should be in direct relation to age, weight, and chronic nature of the ailment.
    Contra-Indications: Not to be combined with pharmaceutical medications for hypothyroidism or low Iron.

    SKU: EN29. Category: .

    Product Description

    Disease may start in the bowel, but it gets a ‘push’ from a deficient digestive system. When we are lacking in digestive ‘fire’, foods are not entirely or adequately processed. Enzymatic activity may be impaired on the part of the liver or pancreas; the stomach may not produce enough hydrochloric acid; pepsin and other digestive ferments may be missing or incomplete… many things can and do go wrong in the alimentary canal, including upsets in the pattern of alkaline(mouth) acid(stomach) alkaline(small intestine) and acid(large intestine) sequences. In this regard, the pancreas make be unable to produce enough sodium bicarbonate to neutralize residual stomach acid in the food mass as it reaches the small intestine. Absorption is thus impaired, the villi of this stretch of the intestine may become irritated, and sensitive, a certain pre-cursor to (some) food allergies. The obvious need to correct dietary indiscretions that directly overwork the digestive apparatus – junk foods, fatty foods, over-indulgence of starches, etc must be eliminated or greatly reduced. Finally, the periodic use of the above formula will serve to eliminate dyspepsia, hypchlorydia (insuffic. Hydrochloric Acid) chronic heartburn, excessive gas and flatulence. By correcting the organ/gland/systemal dysfunction, digestion and absorption improve, cellular nourishment increases, and the heaviness after meals fades into memory.

    Ingredients: Blue Vervain, Toadflax, Wormwood, Gentian Root, Elecampane Root, St. John’s Wort, Fennel Seed, Celandine, Barberry Bark, Evening Primrose
    Suggested Dosage: Take 2-3 capsules 5-10 minutes before breakfast, and again before the evening meal.
    Contra-Indications: Do NOT combine with other digestive bitters, or parasite programs involving additional Wormwood. This formula should NOT be used if there is any inflammatory process, ie ulcers, Crohn's, IBS, etc. This formula should not be taken during pregnancy or nursing.
    • Walnut Hull Tincture

    Walnut Hull Tincture

    SKU: TN6. Category: .

    Product Description

    This is an excellent preparation made from the fresh/fresh frozen green hulls of the Black Walnut tree; it has germicidal, anti-fungal ,parasiticide and some anti-viral properties. It should be used in conjunction with both the PARA and the GAIA formulae, as it will provide substantial support in the treatment of these and other ailments. It is also of service in intestinal irritation, where there is inflammation; mucus and hemorrhagic discharges such as leuccorhea and bleeding piles. It will be helpful in diarrhea, dysentery,and abscesses and apthous mouth ulcers. Can be used for cases of food poisoning, in the order of 1 tablespoonful in a glass of warm water, every 2 hours. For those worried about prior allergic reaction to Walnut, specifically the nut meat, I have found those same persons to be able to handle the tincture of the green hulls. However, for first time use by such an individual, I suggest 1-2 drops in a ¼ cup of water. Take a sip and wait to see if any reaction. If none, gradually increase dosage by 1-2 drops a day, until full dose is reached, or until tolerated.

    Ingredients: Fresh Green Walnut Hulls, Alcohol (45%)
    Suggested Dosage: Take 30 - 45 drops in a glass of warm water, morning and evening.
    Contra-Indications: As with other formulae, not to be used in conjunction with other drugstore remedies for the same conditions.
