The Herbs We Use

Herbs contain beneficial properties such as increased antibodies, they stimulate white blood cells, and they are high in antioxidants. These properties help to strengthen the immune system and help it ward off illnesses and diseases.

Herbs may not prevent all viruses and diseases all the time but if/when disease-forming organisms find their way into the body, they will be rendered non-infective by the powerful immune system brought about by the herbs. Herbs minimize the symptoms and shorten the length of time the virus can live within the body. Herbs an also help stabilize blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol. If you have a chronic disease such as asthma, diabetes, cancer - our healing teas help manage those symptoms so that you can live life more on your terms. 

We encourage customers to consult their doctors when adding herbs into their regiment.
