    Andrographis

    SKU: TN1. Category: .

    Product Description

    This is a very, very strong herbal agent from India. Traditionally used to combat GI and upper respiratory infections, including sore throats and other chronic infectious diseases. Recent research has demonstrated a powerful degree of activity against viruses, including HIV. It appears to interfere with the way and manner in which HIV replicates. Similarly, Andrographis is very effective in dealing with the cancer virus or oncogene, including being cytotoxic to the cancer cell, as well as stimulating macrophage production and antigen-specific response. Further, it has demonstrated hepato-protective, ant-inflammatory and cardio-protective benefits. Finally, research has also noted benefit to the nervous system, helping to sedate and calm irritated nerves, and to help overcome broncho-pulmonary disorders such as bronchitis and even tuberculosis.

    • 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.
    • CAISSE Tea

    Caisse Tea

    SKU: EN31. Category: .

    Product Description

    This formula is a significant improvement on the original four(4) herb formula. Even Rene Caisse was known to have added various herbs to the original mixture, during the time she spent treating people at her clinic. Thus the warning on the part of some companies to be wary of imitations has no real foundation, except to support the bottom line. Herbs have no loyalty to any brand; their only service is to that of the human body.

    The three(3) additional herbs used: Red Clover, Plantain Leaves, and Prickly Ash Bark suggested by a native medicine man from Manitoulin a number of years ago, have demonstrated scientific benefits that support and augment the thrust of the first four herbs. I have researched this scientifically, and tested this formula energetically (radionically) as well as in my practice, and have found it to be superior to the much vaunted original.

    Ingredients: Burdock Rt. Sheep Sorrel, Slippery Elm Bark Turkey Rhubarb Rt, Red Clover, Plantain Leaves, and Prickly Ash Bark
    Suggested Dosage: Use 2/3 - 1 teaspoonful in a cup. Add boiling hot water, stir, let steep 15-20 minutes. Strain and drink 1 cup morning and late afternoon or as directed.

    • 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.
    Contra-Indications:

    • Comfrey Ointment

    Comfrey Ointment

    SKU: ON2. Category: .

    Product Description

    This mixture of herbs and roots provides great restorative action to those tissues damaged through accident, injury, or degeneration. Comfrey, the primary ingredient, contains an abundance of Allantoin – a cell proliferant that promotes rapid healing of wounds, tissue and broken bones and ligaments. Yarrow is an excellent remedy for all wounds and trauma to the skin and tissues, being astringent, anti microbial, and anti-inflammatory. Likewise, St. John’s Wort soothes and calms irritated tissues and skin, promotes the speedy healing of abraded surfaces, and relaxes tight muscles and ligaments. Goldenseal Root provides strong antibiotic activity to any infected / inflamed surface or tissues, while the Chickweed reduces inflammation. Together, these herbs and roots work in a synergistic manner, helping to rebuild the successive layers of tissue (in cases of deep trauma), eliminate infections, reduce swelling and irritation, and bring the area back to full and proper function and appearance. Over the years, we have recommended this formula for just about anything to do with the skin. It will greatly assist in preventing the peeling of skin in cases of sunburn, work wonderfully on diaper rashes, eliminate mild cases of eczema, reduce the itch and swelling of mosquito bites, and serve to keep moist, hands that are dry and chapped. It can also be used as a lubricant and even as a moisturizer after the bath/shower. We have heard of nurses who used it for bedsores in chronic care patients, and from those desiring rapid healing from surgical incisions While we acknowledge the controversy over the use of Comfrey, the early research done on laboratory rats was seriously flawed. We have no hesitation in recommending its use for external application.

    Ingredients: Comfrey Leaves, Yellow Dock Root, Chickweed, Yarrow, St. John's Wort, Goldenseal, Olive Oil, Beeswax
    Suggested Dosage: Apply as needed to affected area(s), as often as required. The best time to apply is after a bath or shower, when the pores of the skin allow the herbs to soak into the skin.
    Contra-Indications: None.
    • D'nama

    D’nama

    SKU: EN7. Category: .

    Product Description

    Many people today suffer from heart disorders – palpitations, high blood pressure, tacchycardia, dysrythmia, etc. Given the fast-paced and stressful lifestyle that we lead today, it is not surprising that the heart tends to have problems carrying out is ceaseless activity. When we suffer from prolonged and unresolved stress, when our nerves are taut and on edge, this will always affect the heart. Our reliance on questionable foods such as fried or junk foods and the like, will equally contribute to the weakening of this tireless worker. Over time, the heart muscle becomes sensitive, inflamed and especially malnourished. The blood that bathes it seems unable to provide the necessary mineral salts and compounds to quell this disturbance. Given the endless bio-electrical activity behind the heartbeat, it is therefore most important for the heart to be given the appropriate ratios of minerals such as Potassium to Sodium, and Magnesium to Calcium. It is for this reason that we have combined the herbs listed above. Hawthorn and Motherwort both supply organic Calcium Chloride to nourish and support the heart muscle. Further, they also contain needed cardiac glycosides that serve to calm and pace the contractions, while gently lowering the blood pressure. Finally, glyco-proteins (mucopolysaccharides) in the Hawthorn help to sooth and restore irritated tissues.

    Ingredients: Hawthorn Berry and Flowers, Motherwort, Bugleweed, Red Sage Rt., Linden Flowers, Mistletoe, Rosemary Lvs.
    Suggested Dosage: Take 2-4 capsules mid-morning, and again late afternoon or evening. This can be combined with Hawthorn Tincture for those experiencing frequent and pronounced palpitations. See Hawthorn Tincture.
    Contra-Indications: This formula should not be used by those on pharmaceutical products for the heart. Consult your healthcare practitioner for further advice.
    • Echinacea Tincture

    Echinacea Tincture

    SKU: TN2. Category: .

    Product Description

    Echinacea Root has a long traditional history, and recently, substantial degree of scientific research supporting its use as an excellent natural antibiotic and immune booster. It contains echinosides (a & b), polysaccharides, isobutylamines, and other constituents that provide a most pronounced stimulating effect on all aspects of immune function. It has been shown to stimulate production of immunoglobulins, B-cells, T-cells, macrophages, etc. It will even tend to normalize the ratio of white blood cells to red blood cells, and provides repair of connective tissue. Unlike recent newcomers to the market, who use a blend of the aerial portions, with decidedly smaller amounts of the root, we use 3 & 4 yr. old roots only. This will provide maximum immune boosting constituents referred to above.

    Ingredients: Certified organically grown Echinacea Angustifolia Root, Alcohol (45%)
    Suggested Dosage: 15-35 drops, 3 times per day; more frequent and higher doses can be taken in cases of serious infection, i.e. every two hours.
    Contra-Indications: Not to be taken with drug-store antibiotics, nor used in cases of over-stimulated immune systems. Not to be used for leukemia, or auto-immune conditions unless under the care and guidance of a skilled practitioner.

    • Electra

    Electra

    SKU: EN8. Category: .

    Product Description

    Diseases today are born of exhaustion – both biochemical and nerve exhaustion; for this reason, one of the most unnoticed, yet consistent forces affecting our health, is stress and its debilitating effects (over time) on our nerves and immunity. Many people live in high stress lifestyles, via traveling to work ,the work itself, noise/air pollution, etc. We malnourish our bodies with devitalized foods, thus depriving our nerves of the nourishment they require.. Relationships today are fraught with potentially stressful situations, whether it be familial, inter-personal, marital, or especially, societal. All of these can and do have a markedly diminishing effect on the nerves, causing us to be tense ,irritable ,moody, unable to sleep at night, and then carry out the next day’s duties and obligations. Irritated nerve filaments can, over time, initiate first hyper, then ultimately, hypo functioning of various organs, glands and systems, thus leading to a variety of ailments. When our nerves are depleted, we feel stressed, our sleep suffers, as do our relationships; our gut may be tied up in knots, constipation may ensue. We feel tired and drag ourselves out of bed, looking for the quick fix in a cup or three of coffee; tempers may flare, leading to ‘road-rage’, and most ominously of all, we may feel that there is no way out of our situation – whether a student, a disgruntled worker or a housewife looking after equally frustrated children. In all of these cases, we need to look after and feed our nerves. In addition to the holidays considered, or the day off work spent relaxing, it is imperative that we provide definite and appropriate support to the nerve force. This support comes in many forms – it could be the B-vitamins that are essential for proper nerve tone and function; it could also be found in Lecithin, a substance that helps to rebuild the myelin sheath surrounding the nerve filament. However, one of the best sources of (phyto) nutrients is found in the combination of roots and herbs in our ELECTRA. This formula is designed to not only provide immediate relief for stress, but to gradually help restore the nerves, thanks to the generous amounts of easily assimilable organic salts of Calcium, Magnesium and Silica. These herbs also provide specific compounds that soothe and sedate an overactive mind and body. St. John’s Wort and Scullcap – two of the stellar ingredients found herein,are of immense benefit in nerve exhaustion,poor sleep, volatility of the nerves, and even mild to moderate cases of depression. Roots such as Valerian promote a deep and sound sleep,while others such as Motherwort and Mistletoe calm the heart. This formula can be used over long periods of time to act as the aforementioned restorative for the nerves; equally, it can be used for the short term, in cases of disrupted sleep due to moments of stress. In either case, it is safe, effective and sure in its effect.

    Ingredients: Skullcap, Valerian Root, Blue Vervain, St. John’s Wort, Chamomile Flowers, Mistletoe, Motherwort, Red Clover, Catnip.
    Suggested Dosage: Take 3-4 capsules before retiring, in cases of poor sleep. As a restorative, take 2 capsules mid-morning, and again late afternoon, or mid-evening. For best results, take on an empty stomach.
    Contra-Indications: This should not be used in combination with either MAO inhibitors, or SSRI agents such as Paxil, etc. Those on heart medications should likewise avoid its use, and as in most cases of herbs. NOT to be used during pregnancy.
    • Gaia

    Gaia

    SKU: EN9. Category: .

    Product Description

    Candida Albicans and its analogs are a very common condition today amongst both women and men. Primarily, this is a condition characterized by a fermentative process, brought on by insufficient Oxygen in the blood and tissues. Partly, this is due to the atmosphere – the amount of available Oxygen has dropped significantly since the turn of the century. Complicating matters further can be the problem of weak lungs, combined with low levels of Iron in the blood (Fe. attracts O2…), poor diet, stress and intestinal stasis. Combine this with the tendency to eat sugar in all its forms and products (even Ketchup!), then you have the ideal scenario for fermentation to take place. It must be emphasized that the use of antibiotics, however well intentioned, will eliminate the ‘good’ bacteria that keep Candida Albicans in check; this is probably the number one contributing factor that brings on this condition known simply as candida or yeast infections. Candida can involve one or more of the following symptoms: athlete’s foot, jock itch /yeast infections, mucus in the stool, bloating in the abdomen after eating, off-white coating of the tongue, rashes such as psoriasis, eczema, dandruff, ringing/itchiness in the ears, poor short term memory, cloudy thinking, along with a preference for sweets and yeasted foods (bread/beer). While this is not an exhaustive list, these symptoms are typical. This preparation contains a number of herbs that will specifically eliminate the fermentation, and the (end stage) fungus that characterizes this condition. Others provide an astringent action to reduce the swollen and inflamed tissues, others still will provide germicidal action, while the remainder offer support to the immune system. This formula should be taken with the WALNUT HULL TINCTURE to give stronger support to the main thrust of the above-mentioned herbs. Diet as well should be altered, preferably after consulting with a qualified healthcare practitioner. Of specific benefit is the elimination of sugar(s) and yeast (bread, beer.). As part of a complete program, it is most important to take our PROBIOTIC formula.

    Ingredients: Walnut Leaves, Jewelweed, Sheep Sorrel, Cedar Leaves, Chaparral Leaves, Purple Loosestrife, Echinacea Rt., Olive Leaves, Rue, Walnut Hulls, Cloves.
    Suggested Dosage: Take 2-3 capsules between meals, 2-3 times per day, depending on severity.
    Contra-Indications: Not to be used while pregnant or nursing.
