Adaptogen - Adrenal Support

Adaptogen is a term coined by Russian researchers to describe a class of herbs which help the body adapt to the unrelenting stress of modern existence. These are thought to achieve their effect primarily by supporting the adrenal glands, which bear the brunt of the ill effects of continued stress. Our Adaptogen formula is conceived as a foundation therapy for virtually all endocrine and auto-immune disorders, as stress plays a well-recognized role in the genesis of these conditions.

Codonopsis is considered a specific in Chinese medicine for fatigue, weakness, loss of appetite, and vertigo. Western research has demonstrated its strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic and analgesic capabilities. Devil's Club (Oplopanax horridum) is an adaptogen with notable blood sugar balancing properties which is particularly useful in the treatment of those whose energy levels vary considerably throughout the day. Astragalus is a classic Chinese energy tonic with considerable immune-enhancing properties [Chevallier]. Polygonium is a prime rejuvenating herb in Chinese medicine used to treat dizziness, weakness and numbness and to support healthy function of the liver and kidneys. The anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic herb Wild Yam (Dioscorea villosa) contains the steroid precursor diosgenin [Chevallier]. Siberian Ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus) is specific for debility, exhaustion and depression, and is indicated whenever the body is subject to undue stress, whether physical or mental [Hoffman]. The amazing Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is the best rejuvenative herb in Indian Ayurvedic medicine. Among its many indications are debility, exhaustion, emaciation, memory loss, muscle weakness, overwork and insomnia. Its name means "smell of a horse," as its use is said to impart the strength of that animal.

DiabetiCare - For high blood sugar

DiabetiCare can be extremely helpful in the treatment of problems involving blood sugar metabolism, especially Type II Diabetes, and including Hyperinsulinemia / Syndrome X, and Hyperinsulinemia associated with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. Blood sugars can start coming down within about 2 weeks but some people don't notice much of a change for 6 weeks. About 88% of patients have much improved blood sugars within 2-3 months. However, It may also be helpful as a preventative in patients who have a family history of adult-onset diabetes.

Both full-blown diabetes and erratic blood glucose levels are an increasingly common cause of suffering for many. In DiabetiCare are selected prime herbs from east and west which combine synergistically to bring blood sugar levels into the desired range. The powdered seeds of Jambul (Syzygium cumini), are used in India to treat diabetes and concomitant urinary frequency [Chevallier]. Gymnema sylvestre is an Indian folk favorite in the treatment of diabetes that has been gaining increasing visibility in the west. Studies indicate that it boosts insulin production, and may actually increase the number of islet cells in the pancreas. Its Indian name, gurmar, literally translates as "sugar destroying," for its ability to counter sugar cravings as well as reduce sugar in the body [Frawley]. Nopal opuntia, or Prickly Pear, is a cactus native to Mexico and the Southwest which is high in flavonoids, vitamin C, fiber and amino acids. It has been shown to decrease blood sugar and cholesterol while curbing the appetite. The root of the common Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) is a good addition to many herbal combinations, as it aids the liver in its processing and metabolic functions . It also rich in the compound inulin which has been shown to reduce hyperglycemic states. Similarly, Milk Thistle, (Silybum marianum) supports the liver, the main organ in glucose storage and metabolism. Recent research indicates that its secretion of the compounds HISS (Hepatic Insulin Sensitizing Substrate) and nitric oxide are powerful aids in the stabilization of blood glucose and prevention of secondary effects. An Italian study found that diabetics with cirrhosis of the liver were able to significantly decrease blood sugar and the need for insulin by taking Milk Thistle. Devil's Club (Oplopanax horridum) is a favorite of many naturopaths and Native American herbalists of the Pacific Northwest which adds adrenal support to the mixture, and appears to balance blood sugar levels through its influence there and on the pancreas. DiabetiCare is unique in that it exerts blood sugar control holistically through support of the pancreas, liver and adrenals, the combined organs of blood sugar regulation.

As this formula naturally increases endogenous antioxidants such as glutathione and superoxide dismutase (SOD), it can be of great benefit in treating retinopthy, neuropathy, and nephropathy, the common secondary diabetic complications associated with free radical damage.

Jambul (Syzygium cumini) - 200 mg
Gymnema (Gymnema sylvestre) - 200 mg
Prickly Pear (Nopal opuntia) - 50 mg
Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) - 50 mg
Milk Thistle(Silybum marianum) - 50 mg
Devil's Club (Oplopanax horridum) - 50 mg

FibroCare - For Fibromyalgia

The combination of W-T3 therapy and FibroCare appears to correct fibromyalgia (including muscle aches, fatigue, brain fog, and insomnia) in nearly all patients with full-blown fibromyalgia. When we say "correct fibromyalgia", we mean that the patients no longer meet the definition of fibromyalgia. Although this combination can't work for everyone, because no treatment can, in several dozens of patients we haven't seen it fail yet.

Patients can sometimes start to relapse after months of being off the treatment, or they might have mild flare-ups from time to time. Nevertheless, the fibromyalgia can usually be corrected to the point that it doesn't come right back once the treatment has been discontinued. And the symptoms can usually be cleared up again easily with a couple of follow-up bottles of WTS Medicines (like Healthy Foundation, ThyroCare, and/or FibroCare).

FibroCare can also be helpful in arthritis, sciatica, neuralgias, migraine, insomnia, depression, anxiety and weepiness, uterine spasms, PMS and menopause.

FibroCare combines the best herbs for relief of pain and spasm with the proven aids in FMS care, magnesium and malic acid. The wise physician may soon find that this same program benefits patients suffering from any number of musculo-skeletal disorders, including arthritis, sciatica and other neuralgias. This versatile product has also been of use in the treatment of migraine. The Journal of Nutritional Medicine published a study demonstrating the efficacy of combined magnesium and malic acid therapy in decreasing tender point pain in the treatment of FMS [Bland 1995]. The authors theorized that the unanimous success of the combination can be ascribed to a decrease in muscle lactic acid due to increased energy production. Jamaican Dogwood (Piscidea erythrina) is used to treat many types of pain, including nerve and muscle pain and spasm. Additionally, its mild sedative properties promote better sleep, a key in the treatment of FMS [Greive 1998]. Boneset (Eupatorium perfolatum) has been shown to possess immune stimulating properties [Foster and Duke 1990] in addition to its traditional use as a tonic for the treatment of rheumatic and muscular pain. The wonderfully versatile herb Black Cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa) has not only anti-rheumatic and anti-spasmodic properties, but is also of use in treating depression, anxiety and weepiness, often concomitants in the complaints of FMS. It has hormone balancing properties which make it of use in the treatment of dysmenorrhea, uterine spasms, PMS and menopause [Sherman 1993].

Malic Acid - 139mg
Boneset (Eupatorium perfolatum) - 279mg
Jamaican Dogwood (Piscidea erythrina) - 93mg
Magnesium Oxide - 46mg
Black Cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa) - 93mg

Healthy Foundation

Healthy Foundation has been designed with the whole body in mind. It is designed to help different organ systems of the body to work well together to enhance the general health of the body. As such, it can be used as a foundation in the treatment of any chronic disorder, or for anyone who would like to attain optimum health and energy. This tonic has shown clinical success in treating disorders as varied as fatigue, depression, chemical sensitivities and ADHD.

Good health begins with good digestion and absorption of nutrients. For digestive support, Healthy Foundation provides two outstanding carminatives, peppermint (Mentha piperita) and fennel (Foeniculum vulgare). The term carminatives describes a class of herbs which bring a pleasing warmth to the digestion by increasing gastric circulation and peristalsic contractions while relaxing the system.

Peppermint is a traditional carminative employed in the treatment of colic, dyspepsia, flatulence, nausea and intestinal spasms. It is calming, which helps to promote sleep, and has demonstrated efficacy in treating irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Fennel shares the above properties, with the additional benefit of treating bacterial overgrowth or dysbiosis.

From digestive support this tonic proceeds to immune and endocrine support with the addition of Astragalus (Astragalus membranosum) and Wild Sarsaparilla (Aralia nudicalis). Astragalus is a prime immune and energy tonic in Chinese medicine, and is valued in that system for its ability to enhance the medicinal properties of other herbs in a given formula. Wild Sarsaparilla is a tonic in the treatment of debility, fatigue, rheumatism and digestive weakness [Foster and Duke], and is considered a balancing agent for endocrine metabolism.

No general tonic could be complete without supporting the main organism of metabolism and detoxification, the liver. For this, Healthy Foundation includes Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum).

As mental clarity is often impaired in FMS and other chronic conditions, Healthy Foundation includes the flavonoid and antioxidant-rich herb Ginkgo biloba. Research indicates that Ginkgo can improve brain circulation, memory and concentration while improving circulation to the extremities and brain.

Depression and a negative outlook can prolong and intensify the suffering of chronic conditions. Healthy Foundation employs St. John's Wort (Hypericum perforatum) to increase serotonin, and thereby buoyancy, in the depressed patient. This versatile herb also possesses antioxidant properties, making it useful in limiting the secondary damage from free radicals which accompanies many degenerative conditions.

St. John's Wort (Hypericum perforatum) - 375 mg
Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) - 250 mg
Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus) - 125 mg
Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum) - 125 mg
Wild Sarsaparilla (Aralia nudicalis) - 125 mg
Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba) - 125 mg
Peppermint (Mentha piperita) - 125 mg
*Contains 30-40% grain alcohol as extracting agent

HypoglycemiCare - For low blood sugar

HypoglycemiCare is especially helpful in correcting the symptoms of hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar. Hypoglycemia refers to symptoms that come when blood sugar levels drop too low, and that go away when blood sugar levels are returned to normal (with eating).

HypoglycemiCare holistically addresses all of the organs involved in blood sugar balance (including the adrenals, liver, and pancreas), but shifts the emphasis toward adrenal support. Devil's Club (Oplopanax horridum) is an adrenal tonic which has demonstrated a specific positive effect in achieving blood sugar balance [Drum]. Jambul (Syzygium cumini) has been traditionally used in India to control blood sugar levels. While largely used as an anti-spasmodic in the west, Wild Yam (Dioscorea villosa) is used in Chinese medicine to "brighten the eyes" and as a tonic. It also contains diosgenin, a precursor for cortisol, a key constituent in blood sugar balance [Buhner]. Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) prolongs the half life of cortisol, thereby helping maintain consistency of blood glucose levels, and has repeatedly demonstrated anti-stress and fatigue properties [Buhner]. Siberian Ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus) has been in use in China for over 2000 years in the treatment of fatigue, weakness, depression, forgetfulness, and insomnia. It is known in the west for its adrenal and liver tonic properties [Buhner]. Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum) is well known as the western herb for liver support par excellence [Buhner]

Jambul Seed (Syzygium cumini) - 45 mg
Devil's Club Bark (Oplopanax horridum) - 184 mg
Licorice Root (Glycyrrhiza glabra) - 45 mg
Milk Thistle Seed (Silybum marianum) - 92 mg
Wild Yam Root (Dioscorea villosa) - 92 mg
Siberian Ginseng Root (Eleutherococcus senticosus) - 92 mg

Mic's Oil - For muscle and joint aches, spasms

Regular use of this medicated massage oil can bring tremendous relief for a mix of musculo-skeletal and nerve complaints. Topical application of St. John's Wort (Hypericum perforatum) oil has earned a reputation for success in treating all manner of muscle pain, spasms, cramps and stiffness. Although known more currently for its use in homeopathy, Arnica (Arnica montana) has historically been used in topical form for arthritic and neuralgic pains as well as muscular pains from overuse. A number of studies have confirmed that the volatile oils in Arnica stimulate local vasodilation, and the release of anti-inflammatory substances into the blood stream. Similarly. Partridge Berry (Mitchella repens) is counted among the best remedies for relief of rheumatic and neuralgic pains as well as muscle spasms. Wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens) is commonly found in sports creams and other topical pain relievers. Its analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties are attributed to its methyl salicylate content. It has been proven in long use as anti-spasmodic as well. Whether your patient complains of pain from trauma, arthritis, overuse, neuralgia or unknown cause, you can think of Mic's Oil to bring relief. It's even helpful for hemorrhoids.

MigraCare - For headaches, especially migraines

MigraCare can often reduce the number of migraines from one a day to one a month, or none a month. Most patients notice some response within a few weeks. Patients who have migraines once a day will hopefully, within a week or two, notice that the frequency, duration, an intensity diminishes to having one migraine every six to eight weeks. If patients don't notice any improvement after taking MigraCare for 2 months, then it probably won't help them. MigraCare is often helpful with other types of headaches as well, not just migraines. MigraCare doesn't seem to work as well with headaches due to Lyme disease.

The inspiration for MigraCare grew out of the repeated clinical success observed in the treatment and prevention of migraine headache with the regular use of FibroCare. That success has been improved upon with the addition of the well-known migraine-preventive herb Feverfew (Tanacetum partheneum). Jamaican Dogwood (Piscidea erythrina) has proven effective in general pain relief, and the versatile Black Cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa), in addition to its antispasmodic and antirheumatic properties, possesses the ability to balance the female hormonal system. This remarkable plant offers relief in headache, depression, anxiety, dysmenorrhea, PMS and menopause.

Malic Acid 150 mg
Feverfew (Tanacetum partheneum) 200 mg
Jamaican Dogwood (Piscidea erythrina) 100 mg
Magnesium Oxide 50 mg
Black Cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa) 100 mg

ThyroCalm - For Hyperthyroidism

ThyroCalm is a unique formula aimed at calming an overactive thyroid gland, or hyperthyroidism. The most common form of hyperthyroidism is Graves' disease. Graves' disease is an autoimmune condition wherein the body makes antibodies against receptors that are normally responsible for stimulating the thyroid gland to produce adequate amounts of thyroid hormone. The antibodies stimulate the thyroid gland to make too much thyroid hormone which can cause palpitations, rapid heart rate, sweating, jitteriness, chest pain, trouble breathing, anxiety, fever, and other complaints.

This formula is designed to quell the overactive thyroid and to provide support for the beleaguered adrenal glands, which always suffer when thyroid function is altered. Bugleweed (Lycopus virginicus) has been the subject of modern research which appears to confirm its long history of folk use in treating thyroid conditions, as it has been shown to reduce thyroid hormone levels in an animal model [Duke]. It is widely combined in Europe with Lemon Balm (Mellisa officinalis), which has experimentally demonstrated the ability to decrease circulating and pituitary TSH levels in injectable form [Duke]. Siberian Ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus) is added to protect and support the adrenals. Several studies have confirmed the ability of Lithospermum to decrease both TSH and thyroid hormone levels.

ThyroCare can be very helpful in Fatigue, Wilson's Thyroid Syndrome, Hypothyroidism, and Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. In fact, in conjunction with W-T3 therapy these conditions can often be corrected to the point that patients no longer need treatment. Research has also shown that one of the herbs in ThyroCare (Guggul) can lower elevated cholesterol levels in the blood.

ThyroCare is designed to provide adjunctive support for the hypothyroid patient, and may be of assistance no matter what the etiology of the condition. Guggul (Commiphora mukul) is considered a rejuvenative and stimulant in Ayurvedic medicine [Tirtha]. Iris versicolor, or Blue Flag, has traditionally been used in the west in thyroid conditions, as it stimulates glandular secretion and removal of wastes through the lymphatic system [Felter]. Fucus, or bladderwrack (kelp), has been a folk remedy for thyroid problems for thousands of years, and it appears to provide the organ with the nutrition and substrates it requires [Drum]. It was shown in one study to increase weight loss and metabolic rate [Chevallier].

Guggul (Commiphora mukul) - 263mg
Iris - Blue Flag Root - (Iris versicolor) - 174mg
Fucus - Bladderwrack Leaves - (Fucus vesiculosus) - 263mg
