    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.

    Product Description

    The liver is the most important organ in the whole body. It performs upwards of 400+ different functions, ranging from filtering, neutralizing, fixating, storing, transforming, regulating, etc, etc. It is the main filter for the body, and as such, can become congested and overcome with toxic byproducts of poor digestion,.chemicals in the food chain, the environment, and even the air we breathe. Additional functions of the liver include storage of Vitamin A & D, Iron, production of bile necessary to break down fats and stimulate peristalsis. It is specifically involved in the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and fats, all of which find their way into energy production. Thus it becomes readily apparent that we need to care for and look after this most important part of our body. When we suffer from constipation, or the stool is dark in color, have head-aches, feel tired after eating, have a sallow or pasty complexion; when our tongue is coated, hair is oily, and our skin dry (in winter), all of these lead back to a faulty liver. The herbs in this formula are designed to restore functional activity to a sluggish congested liver. They accomplish this by dissolving the build-up of waste in the sinusoid cavities, and Kuppfer cells of the liver, where filtration takes place. Other herbs will renew the production of bile and bile salts, while others still stimulate a lazy small and large intestine, to push this matter down the path for eventual elimination. Inflamed surfaces are soothed by the mucilage, and tertiary effects include astringents and mineral salts specific for the operation of the liver/gall bladder complex. This restoration will take time. In more serious cases of liver congestion, it would be prudent to take this formula for a period of 1-2 years on a cyclical basis, ie 3-4 months of usage, with 1 month off between the next regimen. In cases such as this, always consult with a qualified practitioner.

    Ingredients: Dandelion Root, Blue Vervain, Blessed Thistle, Barberry Bark, Nettles, St John’s Wort, Blue Flag Root, Toadflax, Elecampane Root, Yarrow, Althea Root, Red Root
    Suggested Dosage: Take 2-3 capsules, before breakfast, and again before the evening meal. As with all of these formulae, the dosage should be modified according to age, weight and severity of condition
    Contra-Indications: This should not be used in cases of inflammation in the liver, eg Hep. C, etc. Equally it should NOT be used during pregnancy or nursing.

    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.

    KPH II

    SKU: EN13. Category: .

    Product Description

    Many of the early eclectic practitioners have stated that disease starts in the bowel. Even today, this statement carries a lot of weight and truth. Dysbiosis – the biological dysfunctioning of a given system, occurs more often in the large bowel. Candida Albicans and its analogs, are a prime example of what happens when the intestinal flora is seriously disturbed. The retention of waste matter lends itself to this event. Fermentation of matter, the ensuing growth of pathogenic bacteria, the production of gases, etc all contribute to a state of dysbiosis. Inflammation can occur (IBS, Chrohn’s, et al) dull headaches follow, possible hypothyroidism, coated tongue, bad breath, sluggish liver and on and on… Quite simply, the food that we eat, is only beneficial for us for the time it takes to extract the good from it; afterwards, the end products of metabolism can do us harm. The retention of old fecal matter can and will line the inside of the bowel and contribute to the aforementioned ailments. The above herbs will serve to stimulate peristaltic activity and the production of bile; they will relax spasms in the gut, reduce inflammation, and promote a soft well formed stool. Bowel motility will improve, evacuations increase in volume and frequency until a more regular schedule begins.

    Ingredients: Cascara Sagrada Bark, Barberry Bark, Catnip, Fennel Seed, Purple Loosestrife, Black Root, Rhubarb Root, Mandrake Root
    Suggested Dosage: Take 2-4 capsules at night, 15-20 minutes before retiring. Modify dose according to age weight, height and degree of constipation. If necessary for more obstinate, chronic conditions, repeat dose in morning. Discontinue if any discomfort persists.
    Contra-Indications: DO NOT combine with pharmaceutical laxatives or anti-diarrhea medications.

    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.
    • Limbrlith

    Limbrlith

    SKU: EN15. Category: .

    Product Description

    This combination of roots barks and herbs is most suitable for the aches, pains and inflammation of ‘sour’ or overly acidic blood in the body. Arthritis, gout and even some aspects of rheumatism all reflect the disturbances caused by an improper diet, poor liver & kidney function, as well as the formative influences of chronic negative emotions ( bitterness, resentment, etc. )The result is an over-acidification of the blood, that initially , uses up the bio-available organic Sodium in the body. (… one reason why arthritic persons can have digestive upsets – Sodium is stored in the walls of the stomach..). The depletion of organic Sodium which will hold inflammation in check, is then followed by an increase in inflammatory responses, ie. pain in joints, stiffness, and a lack of synovial membrane fluid. The oxidative stress associated with ( rheumatoid) arthritis is due to the accumulation of toxic matter in the blood, due , as noted earlier, to poor filtration by the liver & kidneys. The presence of this matter stimulates both immune function, and the accompanying prostaglandin & cytokine cascade. Diet will play a most important part here, with a greater emphasis on vegetables and most fruits; this needs to be accompanied by a significant reduction in the intake of red meats and processed foods. Depending on the willingness of the patient to adopt these measures, the use of this formula: buttressed and supported by either a Liver or Kidney Tonic, and the daily use of Goat Whey powder, will result in major improvement, if not ultimate elimination of this condition. The influence of negative emotions on this ailment must be kept in mind.

    Ingredients: Burdock Root, Jeffersonia Root, Yarrow, Celery Seed, Boneset, Anedda Bark, Prickly Ash Bark, Yucca Root
    Suggested Dosage: 3 capsules mid-morning and again late afternoon OR mid-evening. Age, height, weight, and severity of the condition must be taken into consideration.
    Contra-Indications: Not to be used with pharmaceutical drugs for the same condition.

    Product Description

    Many women today suffer from hormonal fluctuations and disturbances. Either through the onset of the menopause, or because of a complete hysterectomy, there is a need to supplement the body’s deficient production of necessary estrogen and progesterone. Quite rightfully, these women are leery of taking the synthetic forms from the drugstore; medical science itself recognizes that synthetic forms of estrogen will exacerbate and promote the onset of cancer. While there is a safer synthetic version, the pharmaceutical companies seem to prefer a form that is more economical to produce. To fill this need, we have formulated a particular mixture of herbs that have pre-cursors of both estrogen and progesterone; both of these hormones tend to diminish with age, and are therefore required as supplements. Dong Quai Rt is one of the more preferred sources of the hormone estrogen, and has been traditionally used to regulate the menstrual cycle because of these hormone like compounds. Wild Yam Rt will help supply progesterone, which will help for example, in cases ofPMS, when estrogen levels are too high. Licorice Rt is added for its affinity for the adrenal glands that produce very small amounts of estrogen. In addition to glycyrrizin, one of the active compounds will tend to balance out level of both hormones, raising one if it is too low, and decreasing the other if it is too high. False Unicorn Rt is added simply because it is one of the finest harmonizing herbal agents for the reproductive tract, providing nourishment to the tissues and being soothing to the mucous membranes. Chaste Tree berries have the unique ability to lower production of FSH: Follicle Stimulating Hormone – which produces more estrogen, and to stimulate production of LH: Leutinizing Hormone – which will increase production of progesterone. Thus, in combination with Licorice Rt, and the harmonizing influence of False Unicorn Rt, they will act to balance both hormones in the body. Dulse is added for its nourishing effect on the thyroid, which, as part of the endocrine system, sends the appropriate signals to the rest of the organs and glands, including the reproductive tract.

    Ingredients: Dong Quai Rt, Wild Yam Rt, Black Cohosh Rt, Ladys Mantle, Motherwort, Chaste Tree Berries, False Unicorn Rt, Althea Rt, Licorice Rt, Dulse.
    Suggested Dosage: Take 2-4 capsules, morning afternoon and/or evening. Base line dosage for a woman of average weight, height, etc would be 3 capsules, twice a day.
    Contra-Indications: Do not take while pregnant or lactating, or with conventional HRT.
    • B.L.T. - Bone Ligament and Tissue

    B.L.T. – Bone Ligament and Tissue

    SKU: EN3. Category: .

    Product Description

    Many years ago, we offered bulk herb formulae in powder form to the health food stores. They in turn sold it in large glass jars; each customer would weigh out the desired amount, bag it up and take it home to put into capsules.

    The more popular ones were usually those of Dr John Christopher,a naturopath, master herbalist, and a devout Mormon from Utah. In the early 80’s, Dr Christopher was a gentle white haired practitioner who was legendary in the USA and Canada. He was a true healer who firmly believed in the healing powder of plants and the Divine Spirit that created them.

    While it can be reasonably argued that all his formulae were inspired to some degree by his faith, one formula stood out as having special significance – that formula was his Bone Ligament & Tissue formula.

    While listening to him at a lecture one day, he described a very bad injury sustained by a young child. The trauma involved broken bones, and serious damage to the flesh on those bones. Dr. Christopher was so compelled by what he saw, that he prayed to God for guidance in what should be given. Immediately, there came to mind a number of herbs (see below) and directions how to prepare and give as treatment.

    Dr Christopher stated that within a very short period of time ( unknown..) the young child was fully healed , with little evidence of the original trauma. He went on to say that he would employ this formula in all cases of broken bones, torn or pulled muscles and ligaments, and any other type of physical trauma that the body might suffer from.

    While we have sold this formula for a number of years now to help treat similar conditions, its substantial and, at times, impressive usefulness in arthritis, is only a recent discovery. It will significantly reduce the pain and inflammation of arthritis and in combination with other formulae, will address the underlying fundamental disturbance in blood chemistry. This remedy alone is not intended to correct the arthritic condition; rather it is used as an adjunct in the overall treatment a practitioner might suggest. Whether knitting together broken bones, rebuilding damaged tissue, or assisting with post-operative surgical interventions, the BLT formula offers significant restorative action. Length of treatment will vary from case to case; however a period of at least one month is suggested as a minimum time to allow for these herbs to work. More chronic and serious cases naturally will require much longer time periods before noticing lasting improvement.

    NOTE: this formula should not be used during pregnancy or by nursing mothers.

    Ingredients: White Oak Bark, Comfrey Rt., Althea Rt. , Mullein Leaves, Walnut Leaves, Gravel Rt., Wormwood, Scullcap
    Suggested Dosage: Take 3 capsules morning, and again late afternoon or evening.
    Contra-Indications: This formula should not be used during pregnancy or by nursing mothers.
    • Lymco

    Lymco

    SKU: EN16. Category: .

    Product Description

    The blood and circulatory system has an ‘underground’ companion: that of the lymphatic system. Designed to help remove intra-cellular waste, the metabolization of fats, and, more importantly, support the immune system, this waste carrier can succumb to congestion and a resultant backlog of matter in the tissues. This failure stems from an a priori deficiency in the filtration of the blood by the liver and kidneys, the resultant thickening of the blood, and poor elimination. Constriction of the tissue surrounding the lymphatic system, due to increasing acidification, (low pH = greater contraction of muscles) or lack of Magnesium and Calcium can also impede elimination, and promote stagnation. This mixture of herbs and roots is designed to help dilute this congested material, speed its removal from the passageways and lymph nodes, rebuild the mucin layer, and restore the economy of function to this silent guardian of our health.

    Ingredients: Burdock Root, Dandelion Root, Blue Flag Root, Mullein Leaves, Yellow Dock Root, Prickly Ash Bark.
    Suggested Dosage: Take 2-3 capsules, morning and again late afternoon. If necessary, and as determined by practitioner intervention, this could be taken a third time in the evening. Due to the gradual accumulation and deposition of matter over time, the successful outcome of this formula may dictate a time period of 6 months to 2 years or more of regular use. Please consult a qualified practitioner if in doubt.
    Contra-Indications: Not to be used during pregnancy.
    • Calca

    Calca

    SKU: EN4. Category: .

    Product Description

    Calcium is probably the 2nd most important element after (Silica) in the body. Necessary in the form of Calcium Phosphate, along with Potassium Phosphate, they combine to form the rigid structure of our bones. It is the most likely resource base to be ‘hit’ when the blood and tissues need a strongly alkaline (base) buffering agent to neutralize the acids of metabolic activity, poor diet and disordered filtration of the kidneys and liver. Made from wild-crafted and certified organically grown herbs, this mixture will supply generous amounts of bio-available Calcium. This along with other synergists such as Silica and Magesium, help restore strength to ligaments, hair, & the nerves. Calcium is needed in so many ways, including assisting in the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane. For those who wish to switch from elemental calcium – most often found in the form of carbonates and oxides, we would suggest this formula. For additional support, we suggest taking these capsules with a cup of Special Nutritive Tea. This latter combination works very well for those who suffer from leg cramps, or osteoarthritis.

    Ingredients: Comfrey Leaves, Oatstraw, Horsetail, Alfalfa
    Suggested Dosage: Take 2-4 capsules with meals: breakfast and supper.

    • Ontario Ginseng

    Ontario Ginseng

    SKU: EN18. Category: .

    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.
