20 capsules Heuchera rubescens. Alumroot can be taken for treating diarrhea. Take 1 to 2 capsules with water, when needed.

Alumroot is often overlooked unless it is in bloom. In the springtime many small flowers, ranging in color from pinkish-white to light green, bloom intermittently on leafless spikes. They tend to cluster along one side of the stem. The leaves are basal, ranging from ½ to one inch across. The root is large, scaly from dead growth, and usually angled out or even downward from rock crevices. It has a dark coating and inner pith that ranges from flesh colored to pink.

Constituents: Includes tannin, phlebotannins, and assorted polyhydric phenols with galloyl glucosides.

Hemorrhaging – For ulcers of the stomach and esophagus take one capsule in warm water twice daily.
Stomach Aid – Open two capsules dried root and simmer in one cup of water for twenty minutes. Take in small doses to ease vomiting and diarrhea.
Throat Aid – Prepare the Alumroot following directions for stomach aid, adding one teaspoon chopped Oregon Grape root to the cup of water. Gargle with the mixture.

75 #00 gelatin capsules containing (Equisetum arvense & Urtica sp.). For the building of strong bones, repair of joint cartilage and/or to stimulate hair growth. Take six capsules daily (two with each meal).

Cautions: Horsetail contains silica, which draws nitrates and chemicals from the soil. It is therefore important not to harvest Horsetail near feedlots or areas where farming and spraying takes place. Do not use Horsetail in combination with antihypertensive drugs, digitalis, corticosteroids, heparin, or lithium. If taking Horsetail for a prolonged time, supplement thiamine (vitamin B-one) in your diet, because Horsetail does interfere with thiamine absorption. Avoid taking the thiamine at the same time as the Horsetail. High doses of Horsetail can cause symptoms of poisoning.

This species of Horsetail is a small fern-like perennial with a rhizome that resembles a string of beads. It appears in two different stages, the first being fertile and the second, sterile. During the first stage, there is a spore-bearing spike atop the stalk. The plant reaches four to eight inches high. During the second stage, whorls of needle-like leaves appear. The plant may reach eighteen inches at the second stage. The aerial stems of the second stage plants are the ones gathered. Since they contain a large quantity of silica, they dry quickly in open air. Equisetum arvense has established itself in all parts of the world with the exception of Antarctica, New Zealand and Australia.

Orthopedic aid – Bone growth involves the process of adding calcium for hardness, plus increasing collagen. Silicon is essential for both of these processes. An important study conducted at the School of Public Health at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) shows that silicon-supplemented bones have a one hundred percent increase in collagen when compared with low-silicon bones.

Silicon works by chemically binding the structures of surface tissues and those that connect the bones. Silicon not only promotes growth, bone, and tooth formation, but also has inhibitory effects on coronary heart disease and arteriosclerosis. Silicon is found in mother's milk, in the fiber faction of brown rice, in leafy greens and bell peppers, and Equisetum arvense.

Horsetail's predominant element, silicon, is no doubt responsible for the majority of its curative properties. Horsetail tea has been recommended for years for the regeneration of fingernails. Organic silicon should be distinguished from nonorganic silicon. Organic silicon will recalcify; inorganic silicon will not. In many cases Horsetail has also been found to ease the pain of rheumatism and to stimulate the healing of torn ligaments.

Horsetail Constituents: Horsetail contains up to 70% silicon (silica). Other constituents include alkaloids, including nicotine, palustrine and palustrinine; flavonoids such as isoquercitrin, campesterol, a saponin equisitonin, dimethylsulphone, thiaminase and aconitic acid.

Stinging Nettles have square substantial stems covered with little hairs. The leaves are luxuriant, green and with subdued but pronounced veins. The green colored inconspicuous flowers, which mature into small green seeds, droop from the upper leaf pairs at the stem, in close clusters. Stinging Nettles prefer moist, rich soil and range at sea level to elevations over 9,000 feet.

Tonic: In this combination, Stinging Nettles, being is a very high source of digestible iron, works with the Horsetail to improve overall health. Nettles also stimulates hair growth as well as strengthens the hair shaft.

Stinging Nettle Constituents: Two-methylhepten-(two)-on-(six), five-hydroxytryptamine, acetic-acid, acetophenone, acetylcholine, apha-tocopherol, beta-carotene, betaine, bromine, butyric-acid, caffeic-acid, calcium, chlorophylls, choline, chromium, ferulic-acid, fluorine, folacin, formic-acid, glycerol, histamine, koproporphyrin, lecithin, mucilage, p-coumaric-acid, protoporphyrin, scopoletin, serotonin, SFA, silicon, sitosterol, sitosterol-glucoside, violaxanthin, and xanthophyllepoxide.

50 Mullein Root (Verbascum thapsus) Capsules. Mullein root is valuable as a bladder toning agent for the treatment of urinary incontinence (loss of urine without warning).

Mullein root strengthens and improves the tone of the tigone muscle (a trianglular area at the base of the bladder) and significantly enhances bladder function. It has soothing diuretic properties; it increases the volume of urination, while decreasing the frequency of urination. Mullein root also has mild astringent properties which reduce inflammation in the mucosa of the bladder. It does not irritate or over stimulate bladder or kidney function. Mullein root can be used as a long term tonic for individuals with urinary incontinence, recurring bladder infections, interstintial cystitis, and benign prostatic hypertrophy.

Hericium erinaceus. 50 #00 capsules. Lion's Mane enhances cognitive function as well as stimulates the production of NGF (Nerve Growth Factor). It also is believed to promote myelin sheath growth on brain cells. 2 to 4 capsules daily.

Ingredients: Dried Lion's Mane fruiting bodies.

Lion's Mane is a large pure white fruit body, cushion-like with long pendulous spines; solitary, from wounds on living broad-leaf trees, also from felled Abies (fir). 10-20cm deep x 10-25cm dia. Fruit body: white, cushion-like, upper surface smooth, fertile hymenium on the under surface covering pendulous, elongated conical spines; flesh: concolorous, firm.

Lion's Mane (Hericium erinaceus) is a type of mushroom that has been used traditionally in China and Japan for hundreds of years, and also known as bear's head or monkey's head. Commonly prescribed for stomach ailments and for cancer prevention, this mushroom was once reserved only for the palates of the royal families.

Recently a group of Japanese researchers have patented an extraction process which isolates a NGSF (Nerve Growth Stimulant Factor). They found a compound in Hericium erinaceus which causes brain neurons to regrow, a feat of great significance in potentially helping senility, repairing neurological degradation, increasing intelligence and improving reflexes. Studies also confirm many of its traditional uses, supporting the digestive system, and acting as a tonic for the nervous system.

Constituents: Hericenone A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H, Xylan, Heteroxylan, Heteroglucan, Proteoglycan.

Sulphur Shelf
Our Price: $12.00

50 capsules of Sulphur Shelf (Laetiporus sulphureus). Sulphur Shelf, also commonly known as Chicken of the Woods, is a popular edible mushroom that has medicinal qualities, as well. Used for Candida, E. coli, antibiotic.

This fungus easily recognized by its color, soft texture, and absence of gills. Sulphur Shelf are parasitic and saprobic; growing alone or, more typically, in large clusters on decaying logs and stumps of conifers. They are found from summer and fall, rarely in winter and spring.

Antibacterial – Some of our most significant anti-bacterial antibiotics have been derived from fungi, especially polypores. I have found Sulphur Shelf to work well with bacterial infections of the digestive and urinary systems. One dropper of Sulphur Shelf Hydrosol in small amount of water three times daily, or 6 capsule (2 with each meal) if the recommended dosage.

Antibiotic – In recent research, extracts demonstrated antimicrobial activity against a wide spectrum of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria during agar and submerged cultivation including methicillin-resistant strain of Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and glycopeptide-resistant strain of Leuconostoc mesenteroides. Follow dosage recommended in above in Antibacterial.

Candida – Sulphur Shelf exhibits high anticandidal activity on Candida albicans, as well as yeast infections. Take 6 capsules, 2 with each meal or one dropper of Sulphur Shelf Hydrosol in small amount of water three times daily.

E. Coli – Sulphur Shelf not only produces antibiotics strongly aggressive to Staphylococcus aureus and has been noted to consume E. coli upon contact. I have noted that tincture or hydrosol works better than the capsules for addressing Escherichia coli. Take 1 dropper of the hydrosol every four hours or 1 tsp. of the tinctured Sulphur Shelf.

Green Black Walnut (Juglans nigra)
Our Price: $12.00

(Juglans nigra) 75 #00 Capsules

For parasite control take 2 capsules first thing in the morning and 2 capsules at bedtime. Continue daily until package has been consumed.

The black walnut is a temperate forest hardwood tree which can grow up to 100 feet tall. Its bark is rough and dark; the leaves are pinnately compound, with lance-shaped serrated leaflets. Male and female flowers grow in separate catkins (the males are the ones hanging in long rows). The fruit is a deeply grooved, hard to crack nut inside a spherical rind. Fresh Black Walnut Hulls are harvested in their green state (before they blacken) when they are more potent. They are a strong killer of fungal infections such as athletes’ foot, Candida albicans and other internal and topical fungal infections.

According to Dr. Theodore Nash at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in Bethesda, Maryland, parasitic infections are a major cause of illness in North America. Eight out of ten people in North America harbor one or more parasites or worms.

Tincture of Green Black Walnut Hull is one of the most popular and effective anthelmintic used in parasite cleansing programs. The hulls have been harvested from wild naturalized black walnut trees and are therefore organic.

Due to the iodine content of the hulls, it had been historically used for treatment of goiters and certain thyroid conditions. Currently considered a less toxic alternative to seaweed as an iodine supplement.
