Actions: Chaste Tree berries help restore a normal estrogen/progesterone balance by increasing luteinizing hormone production and inhibiting the release of follicle stimulating hormone.

Uses: Indicated in relieving the endocrine, somatic, and emotional symptoms associated with menopause and ovarian insufficiency: fatigue and lassitude; insomnia; nervousness, irritability or depression; heart palpitations; hot flushes and sweating; and related “odd sensations.”

Dose: Two to four times per day, take 30 to 40 drops in a little water. Positive results can take from several days to several weeks.

Adjunct Therapy: If heart palpitations are not relieved, add 30 to 40 drops of Healthy Heart Tonic to each dose of the above.

Cautions: Certain symptoms blamed on menopause are often not due to menopause at all, and there is a danger of neglecting a specific disorder that could and should be treated. It is therefore important to seek guidance from a qualified healthcare practitioner when experiencing health problems during menopause.

HEALTHY HEART TONIC

HEALTHY HEART TONIC

HEALTHY HEART TONIC

Cardiovascular Tonic

A blend of the liquid extracts of:

haw

• Hawthorn berry, leaf & flower (Crataegus spp.) 35%
* Cactus flower & stem (Selenicereus grandiflorus) 30%
• Motherwort leaf & flower (Leonurus cardiaca) 25%
• Ginger rhizome (Zingiber officinale) 10%
* Fresh • Dried

Actions: Hawthorn’s flavonoids have been shown to enhance the connective tissue structure of the endothelial lining of the heart cavities and the blood and lymph vessels, thus optimizing their resiliency against the damages of injury, disease, stress, and aging. Hawthorn dilates the coronary artery and thereby enhances blood flow to the myocardium (heart muscle). By inhibiting phosphodiesterase, Hawthorn’s flavans have a favorable effect on the myocardium’s calcium metabolism, thereby increasing its contractile power and promoting its normal rhythm.

Uses: This compound is a restorative and nutritive tonic for the heart specifically, and the circulatory vessels in general. Although not a specific remedy for any one heart condition, it is still very much recommended as supportive therapy in any functional derangement of the heart such as: angina, valvular deficiency (with or without enlargement), endo-myocarditis and pericarditis, tachycardia, “rheumatic heart,” cardiac neuralgia, palpitation, “heart weakness” and associated neurasthenia. It also serves well as adjunct therapy in the treatment of hypertension.

Dose: Three times per day, take 30 to 40 drops in water. Take last dose of the day just before bedtime.

Cautions: Heart disease and hypertension can be very serious health problems and should be treated under the guidance of a qualified healthcare practitioner.

Hawthorn can potentiate the cardiac glycoside action of Digitalis (or other related drugs like Digitoxin, Digoxin, Gitalin,). Therefore, those who take these drugs while taking Hawthorn should have their heart medication monitored by a physician.

LOBELIA • SKUNK CABBAGE
COMPOUND

Antispasmodic Tincture

A blend of the liquid extracts of:

lobelia

• Skunk Cabbage rhizome & root (Symplocarpus foetidus) 18%

• Myrrh tears (Commiphora abyssinica &/or molmol) 18%
• Cayenne pepper (Capsicum annuum) 10%

* Fresh • Dried

History: Antispasmodic Tincture is a tried and true remedy in American traditional herbal medicine. It was made famous by the renowned American herbalist, Jethro Kloss, in his classic American herbal, Back To Eden, which was first published in 1939.

Action: This compound is both a strong, relaxing antispasmodic, and a powerful diffusive stimulant. It acts to relieve muscular and visceral tensions in the body while vitalizing and equalizing the neurological force and the circulation of the blood and body fluids.

Uses: In Back To Eden Jethro Kloss recommended Antispasmodic Tincture for the following conditions: asthma, whooping cough, spasmodic croup, cramps, spasms, convulsions, epilepsy, suspended animation, hysteria, fainting, delirium tremens, childbirth, hydrophobia, and lockjaw. He also advised: “Apply externally to any kind of swelling, cramps; is very beneficial in rheumatism, lumbago, etc.” It is the authors personal opinion that this compound could possibly be useful in moderating the neurological symptoms of multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease.

Dose: Preventative or restorative tonic: Two to three times per day, take 15 to 30 drops in water.*
Acute: Three to five times per day, take 20 to 40 drops in water.*
The following information is given by Jethro Kloss in his famous herbal, Back To Eden.

“We have given just a drop or two on the tip of the finger, thrusting the finger into the mouth of a baby in convulsions, and in less time than it takes to write this statement the convulsions have ceased.”
“Dr. H. Nowell has poured a teaspoonful of the antispasmodic tincture, full strength, between the clenched teeth of a case of lockjaw and before a second teaspoonful could be poured from the bottle the locked jaws have relaxed.”

“… in the case of infants, it should be rubbed well into the neck, chest, and between the shoulders at the same time. Two or three drops of the tincture in a raw state should be placed in the mouth and washed down with teaspoonful doses of warm water and the patient kept warm in bed. In all such cases relief will be experienced in a few minutes, and by repeating the same treatment every one or two hours a cure will soon be effected and the patient brought to a state of convalescence.”

Cautions: Consult a qualified midwife or physician before taking during pregnancy. * Because of the Lobelia in this compound, large and frequent doses may induce nausea or vomiting in some sensitive individuals. If this happens, discontinue use for 24 hours, and then resume use with a lower number of drops. Drops can be adjusted according to tolerance.

This compound is contraindicated for asthenic individuals with low vitality and a weak constitution, and in cases of low blood pressure.

Many of the maladies listed above can often be serious health problems or even life-threatening. Anyone suffering from any of these maladies should be treated by a qualified healthcare practitioner.

Do a one-minute eyewash with this mixture 1 to 3 times per day. While doing the wash make sure to keep the eye widely opened and rotate the eye in all directions.

* The number of drops that can be tolerated will vary with the individual and their condition. If the wash seems too strong, lower the number of drops until it feels comfortable.

* If eye is very irritated, inflamed, or infected, start with 3 to 5 drops and add more drops only if they can be well tolerated.

Note: Take extreme care not to contaminate the dropper or the mouth of the bottle. Sterilize the eyecup before each use (boil for 5 minutes).

Cautions: Discontinue use of this compound if it creates redness or irritation.

Uses: Indicated in the treatment of urinary tract calculi (“stones”) which are located in the kidney, bladder, or ureter. Can also serve as prophylactic therapy to prevent or diminish the tendency to form new stones.

Dose: Stone Dissolving Therapy: Three times per day, mix 50 drops of compound with a pinch of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) in 8 ounces of water and drink all at once. Best taken between meals.

Adjunct Therapy: For stones that are passing with difficulty it is helpful to dilate the ureter, and also to relieve any inflammatory edema.

Also apply hot compresses over the kidney area, or soak in a hot bath.
