All herbs are Organic unless marked (w=wild-crafted)
ADRENAL GLANDS BOOST These vital glands produce antacid steroids that help alkalize the body. Adrenal neurotransmitters control bowel movements, breathing, heart functions and more. Low neurotransmitters cause anxiety, irritability, fatigue, lack of focus, moodiness, low self-esteem, etc. Sugars and most minerals are metabolized by the adrenals. They also control the kidneys which filter toxins from the lymph system. Most of us have weak adrenals. Organic Whole Herbs: Astragalus Root, Ashwagandha Root, Eleuthero Root (Siberian Ginseng), Hawthorn Berries, Kelp, Lobelia Leaf (w), Mullein Leaf, Parsley Leaf. Suggested add-on: Licorice Root Boost.
ANTI-PARASITE BOOST An important part of any detox is getting rid of micro-parasites (fungus, Candida, etc) and worms. This is typically done in the first month or two of a detox program. These herbs have been traditionally used. Organic Whole Herbs: Black Walnut Hull, Cat’s Claw Bark (Una de Gato)(w), Juniper Berries, Olive Leaf, Pau D’arco Bark (w), Turmeric Root, Thyme Leaf, Wormwood.
BALANCED GLANDS BOOST The endocrine glands are important to all functions of the body. The pituitary is the master gland that controls them all. The thyroid controls metabolism, heart rate, body temperatures, etc. The parathyroid (and thyroid) handle calcium utilization which prevents weak joints & bones, depression, prolapses, hemorrhoids, sagging skin, varicose/spider veins, etc. The pancreas produces insulin for sugar metabolism, and makes enzymes that help us digest our food. The adrenal glands not only control the kidneys (which filter lymphatic waste), they make antacid steroids that help alkalize the body. Neurotransmitters for a healthy nervous system and steroids for sugar and mineral metabolism are also made by these important walnut-sized glands. Organic Whole Herbs: Astragalus Root, Chaste Tree (Vitex) Berries, Eleuthero Root (Siberian Ginseng), Hawthorn Berries, Juniper Berries, Kelp, Lobelia Leaf (w), Mullein Leaf, Parsley Leaf, Saw Palmetto Berries, Wild Yam Root. Suggested add-on: Licorice Root Boost.
BLOOD BOOST These herbs have been traditionally used to help clean and build the blood. Organic Whole Herbs: Alfalfa Leaf, Burdock Root, Kelp, Oregon Grape Root, Parsley Leaf, Red Clover Herb, Yellow Dock Root.
BONE & JOINT BOOST A strong parathyroid gland which controls calcium utilization is important. Low calcium is tied to weak bones & joints, prolapsed organs (including the bowels), hemorrhoids, varicose/spider veins, vascular weakness (aneurysms), weak hair & fingernails, and sagging skin. Depression (& postpartum) is also tied to low calcium. Organic Whole Herbs: Alfalfa Leaf, Black Walnut Hull, Cat’s Claw Bark (Una de Gato)(w), Fo Ti Root (He Shou Wu), Horsetail Herb, Kelp, Lobelia Leaf, Marshmallow Root, Mullein Leaf, White Oak Bark.|
BRAIN & NERVE BOOST A weakened nervous system, marked by nerve rings in the iris, is tied to “brain fog,” poor memory, palsies, strokes, headaches, migraines, spinal cord injuries, depression, pituitary and pineal gland weakness, shingles, spasms, epilepsy, twitching, electrical weaknesses of the heart (arrhythmias, etc.), dizziness, equilibrium issues, and mental disorders. Organic Whole Herbs: Eleuthero Root (Siberian Ginseng), Ginko Leaf, Goldenseal Leaf, Gotu Kola Herb, Schisandra Berries, Skullcap Herb.
CIRCULATION BOOST Many of us need the help of herbs to get blood and lymph circulating more – especially in the extremities like the head and legs. These herbs have been traditionally used for this. Organic Whole Herbs: Bilberry Leaf, Butcher’s Broom Root, Cayenne Herb, Ginger Root, Ginko Leaf, Gotu Kola Herb, Hawthorn Berries, Prickly Ash Bark (w), White Oak Bark.
GI BOOST The bowels are an important channel for the elimination of toxic waste, and healthy ones move 2-3 times a day. They are free of pockets (diverticulitis), “mucoid plaque,” polyps, ulcers, etc. Healthy bowel tissues are not swollen and absorb nutrients easily, thus avoiding malabsorption issues. Lymphatic stagnation in the bowel tissues leads to acidosis which can destroy bowel tissues. Most “civilized” peoples bowels are in terrible shape and need to be detoxed routinely. Organic Whole Herbs: Cascara Sagrada Bark, Fenugreek Seed, Ginger Root, Goldenseal Leaf, Marshmallow Root, Plantain Leaf, Slippery Elm Bark, White Oak Bark, Wild Yam Root.
KIDNEY FILTRATION BOOST Lymph is our sewer system that surrounds every cell. Dirty lymph turns acidic and destroys tissues which leads to pain, swelling (acidosis), early cell death, mutations, and most so-called diseases. The kidneys are meant to filter and eliminate lymph acids, and if clogged they recycle toxins back into the body. Cleaning up the kidneys and getting them to “filter” is the first goal of lymphatic detoxification. Organic Whole Herbs: Cornsilk, Couch Grass (Dog Grass) Root, Dandelion Leaf, Ginger Root, Juniper Berries, Marshmallow Root, Stinging Nettle Leaf, Uva Ursi Leaf (Bearberry).
LICORICE ROOT BOOST Traditionally used for strengthening the endocrine glands, especially the adrenals. It’s well-known as anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-viral, and to aid in digestion and blood circulation. Licorice is a “harmonizing herb” that helps other herbs work together synergistically. A good add-on to the Adrenal Glands Boost, Balanced Glands Boost, Pancreas Boost, and JIVANA Teas.
Licorice root raises blood pressure. Use caution if you have high blood pressure. Contains Organic Whole Licorice Root.
LIVER/GALLBLADDER BOOST The liver is a major chemical factory and helps bind toxins for elimination. The gallbladder helps with the digestion of fats. It’s good to clean up the liver and gallbladder in the first month of a detox program. Organic Whole Herbs: Burdock Root, Dandelion Leaf, Dandelion Root, Milk Thistle Seed, Oregon Grape Root, Turmeric Root, Yellow Dock Root.
LUNGS BOOST These herbs have been traditionally used to loosen phlegm and help the lungs clean so they can heal. Organic Whole Herbs: Fenugreek Seed, Lobelia Leaf (w), Marshmallow Root, Mullein Leaf, Pleurisy Root, Red Clover Herb.
LYMPH MOVER BOOST Most of us have been eating acid/mucus forming foods for decades and need the assistance of herbs to get thick sticky lymph moving to the kidneys so it can be cleaned. Stagnant lymph turns acidic which causes pain and swelling. Move your lymph! Organic Whole Herbs: Butcher’s Broom Root, Cayenne Herb, Chaparral Leaf (w), Echinacea Herb, Ginger Root, Plantain Leaf, Prickly Ash Bark (w), Stinging Nettle Leaf.
LYMPH NODES BOOST Lymph nodes are the “hubs” of our lymph system and are key to our immune response. They need to be clean of obstructions to work properly. Organic Whole Herbs: Butcher’s Broom Root, Cayenne Herb, Chaparral Leaf (w), Echinacea Herb (w), Plantain Leaf, Poke Root, Prickly Ash Bark (w), Red Clover Herb.
PANCREAS BOOST A healthy pancreas is vital for the production of insulin which of course is a factor in blood sugar issues (aka diabetes). Low production of enzymes from the pancreas causes undigested food in the stool, excessive thinness, etc. The pancreas also produces sodium bicarbonate which protects us from acid reflux, gird, ulcers, malabsorption, etc. Organic Whole Herbs: Cayenne Herb (stimulates enzyme production), Dandelion Root, Goldenseal Leaf, Horsetail Herb (Shavegrass), Juniper Berries, Mullein Leaf, Olive Leaf, Uva Ursi Leaf (Bearberry). Suggested add-on: Licorice Root Boost.
PITUITARY/PINEAL BOOST The pituitary is vital to all the other endocrine glands (thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, adrenals, ovaries/testes, etc.) because it’s the “master” gland that communicates with them. It also produces growth hormones and regulates the menstrual cycle and fertility. If the pituitary is not strong we have a hard time improving the function of other glands. The pineal gland helps regulate sleep and is said to be our “spiritual 3rd eye”. Organic Whole Herbs: Chaste Tree (Vitex) Berries, Eleuthero Root (Siberian Ginseng), Ginko Leaf, Gotu Kola Herb, Fo Ti Root (He Shou Wu), Mullein Leaf, Oregon Grape Root. Suggested Add-on: Circulation Boost, Brain & Nerve Boost. Clean up the GI tract so the head can drain as well. Herbs: GI Boost, GI Broom.
PSYLLIUM BROOM Works well with juice fasts. Psyllium is commonly used to “sweep” out stubborn fecal matter from the bowels, relieve constipation, and lower cholesterol. It’s also known as a “pre-biotic” that supports the growth of healthy gut flora. Charcoal and clay absorb acids, and bind to toxins and heavy metals from the bowel walls so they can heal. Healthy bowels absorb more nutrients from food which helps correct malabsorption. Contents: Psyllium Husks (organic), Bentonite Clay (food grade), Charcoal (activated).
SKIN BOOST Also known as the 3rd kidney, the skin is a major area of elimination of lymphatic acids and toxins. If the lymph system of the skin is “backed up” it can lead to many issues (known as acne, psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, etc.). Cleaning up the skin will make you look better and help the body detox overall. Organic Whole Herbs: Burdock Root, Mullein Leaf, Oregon Grape Root, Prickly Ash Bark (w), Red Clover Herb, Schisandra Berries, White Oak Bark, Yellow Dock Root.
THYROID/THYMUS BOOST A healthy thyroid is very important for your overall metabolism. If this gland is weak you could have a hard time loosing or gaining weight, and your body temperature can also become unstable (cold hands and feet). The thyroid is also tied to low calcium levels and depression (along with the parathyroid). The Thymus is very important to our immune system because it’s where T-cells (immune cells) mature. Cytotoxic T cells destroy cancer cells and virally infected cells; Memory T cells keep a record of every infection you have ever been exposed to so they can mobilize fast to attack it. Natural killer T Cells recognize pathogens so they can be dealt with. Organic Whole Herbs: Ashwagandha Root, Black Walnut Hull, Echinacea Herb (w), Eleuthero Root (Siberian Ginseng), Fo Ti Root (He Shou Wu), Kelp, Mullein Leaf, Stinging Nettle Leaf.
