Herbs that supplement health and well being.

Respiratory:
  • Mullein:
    • The herb Mullein has been cultivated in Scotland and England for centuries as a medicinal herb for respiratory issues like coughs,  lung conjestion, brochitis and nasal congestion. 
    • Mullein contains a good amount of potassium and calcium phosphate.
    • These two organic salts are essential for rebuilding tissue, nervous system function, bone structure and in maintaining general health and well-being.
    • Mullein leaves and flowers are classified in traditional herbal literature as expectorants (promotes the discharge of mucus) and demulcents (soothes irritated mucous membranes). Historically, mullein has been used by herbalists as a remedy for the respiratory tract, particularly in cases of irritating coughs with bronchial congestion.
    • Mullein is an excellent herb for the respiratory system, and has been listed as an astringent. 
      • Astringents are herbs with traditional histories of opening air passages and allowing the person to breathe more freely.
    • Mullein is known by other names in other ancient cultures. The people of Rome and Ireland called it "lungwort" because of its historical use to cure lung disease in both humans and livestock (Muenscher, 1935; DeBray, 1978).
    • "Mullein contains approximately 3% mucilage and small amounts of saponins and tannins. The mucilaginous constituents are thought to be responsible for the soothing actions on mucous membranes. The saponins may be responsible for the expectorant actions of mullein." University of Michigan Medical Health Article

Immune:

  • Echinacea:
    • The traditional uses of Echinacea started in North America with the Native Americans. They use it for cuts, burs, stomach issues and as a curative for colds and flu's. Echinacea has many active constituents; such as polysaccharides, echinacoside, cichoric acid, ketoalkenes and alkylamides. Currently the homeopathic and alternative medicine groups use extracts because they seem to exhibit immunostimulant properties. Echinacea is now mainly used in the prophylaxis and therapy of colds, flu and septic complaints. 
  • Eucalyptus:
    • Eucalyptus is one of the best immune boosters available today. It has been used for sore throats, coughs, seasonal allergies and headaches because of its aromatic properties.
    • Eucalyptus benefits are due to its ability to stimulate the immune system, provide antioxidant protection and improve respiratory circulation (the aroma seems to clear mucus to allow for better air flow in the respiratory system).
      • Researchers have found that it has a broad-spectrum antimicrobial action. This is why eucalyptus is commonly used in products to fight foreign pathogens and different forms of infections. (NCIB Study Link)

Nervous System:

  • Valerian:
    • Historical uses
    • Valerian has been used as a medicinal herb since at least the time of ancient Greece and Rome. Its therapeutic uses were described by Hippocrates, and in the 2nd century, Galen prescribed valerian for insomnia. In the 16th century, it was used to treat nervousness, trembling, headaches, and heart palpitations.
    • Valerian has received attention for its interaction with gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a chemical messenger that helps regulate nerve impulses in your brain and nervous system. Researchers have shown that low GABA levels related to acute and chronic stress are linked to anxiety.
    • "Our search yielded a total of 370 articles. Sixteen randomized, controlled trials, examining a total of 1093 patients, satisfied all inclusion criteria." ... several studies have shown that components of valerian inhibit the breakdown of gamma-aminobutyric acid in the brain and induce sedation and a decrease in central nervous system activity. (US National Library of Medicine)

Cleansing:

  • Chaparral:
    • The Native Americans have used chaparral herb for centuries. Their uses were focused on internal body malfunctions as well as for rash and acne-type skin eruptions.
    • The Native Americans have been proven to be wise as the study of Chaparral has shown some antibiotic and antiseptic properties along with immune stimulating substances.
    • Exactly how it works is open to debate, however, most credit one of the main active components of chaparral, nordihydroguaiaretic acid, or NDGA, as a key factor.
      • NDGA has antioxidant properties. The plant also contains lignans that are believed to have healing and anti-aging properties.
      • Some other historical claims are that there are anti-microbial properties too. Although this is subject to review and more studies are needed.
      • Herbalists have used Chaparral in blood cleansing formulas because of the anti-oxidant properties.

What role does nutrition play in recovering from an addiction?

  • Substance abuse harms the body in two ways.
    • First the substance itself affects the body. I mean lets face it if there were no harm in smoking cigarettes and you felt the calm that nicotine provides then why quit? The fact is that the smoke in the lungs introduces harmful carcinogens and other chemicals that are EXTREMELY harmful to your health.
    • Addictions can also cause negative lifestyle changes, such as irregular eating, poor diet and can even contribute to lethargy or a sedintary lifestyle.
  • Proper nutrition can help the healing process.
    • Nutrients supply the body with energy.
  • They provide substances to build and maintain healthy organs and fight off infection.
  • They can make a real difference while trying to quit a nasty habit because of the feeling of well being that they provide over time.
  • Nutrition might be one of the single most important tools to use once you have made the decision to quit your bad habit.


We all need vitamins and minerals. They are what regulate the chemical reactions by which the body converts food into energy and living tissues.
Many dieticians claim that if we eat a balanced diet there is no need for supplementation.
Our belief is that supplementing a diet with natural herbal formulas strengthens the nervous system, boosts the immune system and helps provide a healthier happier lifestyle.
Many herbs in our unique formulas offer a whole host of vitamins and minerals in a natural form our bodies recognize and use.


  • Wheat Grass is well known to Herbalists for its many heathy properties.
    • It is one of the richest natural sources of vitamins A, B and C.

It is easy to see why we have chosen Wheat Grass as one of the ingredients in some of our best daily supplements. It is truly a wonderful and much needed herb!

Over Eating:
Quitting a bad habit is hard. Some people that have what are considered addictive personalities tend to take up another addiction in the old addictions place. For example a person trying to quit smoking might start eating more to replace the habit of smoking. This lends to gaining weight and can lead to other health issues that are different but can be just as serious as the issues that come along with smoking.

Health Information

What is an addiction?
The American Psychiatric Associations reports that an addiction is a complex condition. It is considered a brain disease that is manifested by the compulsion to over use a substance even though the use of that substance is known to be harmful.
People with addictions (severe substance use disorder) have an intense focus on using a certain substance(s), such as tobacco, alcohol or drugs, to the point that it takes over their life. They keep using the tobacco or alcohol or drug (legally prescribed or illegally obtained) even when they know it will cause problems. The desire to consume the substances becomes more important than any other faction (family relationships, financial matters, careers) in their lives.

Addiction to a particular substance has been theorized by some as an attempt to "self medicate". Self medication has been defined in many different ways. In this article wwe will define self medication as the use of a substance to overcome over discomforts related to mental stress, physical pain, anxiety or even depression. An individual might consume alcahol, tobacco or some of the drugs available to "self medicate" to get past those over whelming feelings.

How do I know if I'm addicted to a substance?
The hardest thing to do is to recognize whether you might be addicted to some sort of a substance. It's easy to see someone elses addictive habits but recognizing your own addiction(s) is a different process all together. In order to recognize an addiction of your own reqires some intraspection or honest self analysis. Here are a few things to consider and ask yourself about while deciding whether or not you have an addiction.
  • Here are a few thoughts or questions that you might ask yourself:
    • Have I had an emotional cost?
      • Do you live with daily feelings of fear, anger, sadness, shame, guilt, paranoia, loss of pleasure, boredom, emotional instability, self-loathing (disgust with oneself), loneliness, isolation, and feelings worthlessness because of a substance you just can't walk away from?
    • Have  I had any social costs? These are questions to ask yourself while relating to the substance usage to determine the social implications of your habit.
      • Is there a disruption to important relationships? Has a relationship been damaged? Have you decreased your ability or interest in forming meaningful connections with others? Are you limiting your social sphere to other unhealthy, addicted persons?
    • Does my habit have a physical cost?
      • poor general health; poor personal hygiene; lowered energy and endurance; diminished enjoyment of sex or sexual dysfunction; poor sleep; Are all part of this question. What of these issues are you experiencing?
    • Have I experienced work and productivity costs/ losses?
      •  Decreased productivity in all aspects of life are part of this consideration; missing important deadlines and failing to meet obligations; impaired ability to safely operate tools and equipment (including driving); and lost time due to accidents arising from being impaired are all symptoms. It is up to you to decide whether they're coincidental or addiction related.
    • Have I had significant financial costs? Everything cost money in one way or another. What could you hav espent your money on if you didn't have a substance based habit?
      • Any money spent on the addiction itself; money spent dealing with the consequences of addiction (healthcare costs, legal costs, etc.). WHAT IS THE FINANCIAL COST???
    • Have I had a loss of time?
      • Sacrificing time spent in meaningful, life enriching activities in order to engage in addictive behaviors.
      • Meaningful, life-enriching activities are of two basic types:
      • 1) Love: time spent in relationships with others, and... 
      • 2) Work: time spent being productive including employment, learning, working on personal projects, volunteering, and helping others. Time is a limited resource. When time is increasingly spent pursuing an addiction, it limits the amount of time available to devote to these two basic human activities.
    • After you ask yourself these cost related questions you might have a better (non-justified) opinion of the actual question; Addicted or not addicted???
