SOLOMON'S SEAL (Polygonatum biflorum, multiflorum, odoratum, siberian genus) is an invaluable herb with a worldwide history of use dating back thousands of years in Asia, Europe, and North America. The root of the plant appears to have restorative properties that address certain health disharmonies, as noted on this website and below.

In 2010, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (Natural Resources Conservation Service) identified Solomon's Seal as a Culturally Significant Plant, noting its medicinal and restorative value among North American Tribal (Original Nation) peoples. It is our understanding that the National Institutes of Health is presently researching the benefits of Solomon's Seal for heart health.

Is Solomon's Seal a Miracle Cure or Magic Bullet?

NO!  Read this short commentary
by C. Forrest McDowell, PhD
Cortesia Sanctuary

123

Many of our customers (even medical science!) have vouched for the restorative benefits of using the 1-2-3 METHOD — the application of a TOPICAL (salve, spray or lotion) AND ORAL (tincture, tea) remedy regularly during their healing.

Topical 1 (Base):   Apply Magnesium Spray (or Salve, if not using a spray), wait 20 minutes for 100% absorption

Topical 2: Rub in Salve (or Quick Relief Spray); when relaxing, apply moist heat for 45 minutes (heating pad over moist cloth)

Oral 3: Take Tincture drops (can be taken independent of above throughout the day, if desired).

Use a HEALTH KIT to support the deepest retorative potential of using the 1-2-3 Method

SOLOMON'S SEAL  AND/OR
TRANSDERMAL MAGNESIUM

MAY HELP YOU

WHAT PRODUCT
TO USE

Tendons & Ligaments

 

Issues related to: inflammation from repetitive stress or injury, including stretched, tight, loose, atrophied, torn, & overused.

Who suffers:
Athletes, runners, gardeners, musicians, laborers, elderly, etc. very often have complaints related to muscles, tendons and ligaments, and related joints. Tendonitis is one such result.

Other people suffer from extensive texting and other repetitive motion injuries related to hands and fingers, including so-called "Mommy Thumb".

  • Adjusts (tightens or loosens, as needed) tendons, ligaments and connective tissues
  • Allows more moisture to permeate tendons, ligaments, attachments and muscles to help maintain fluidity

If needing adjustment, Solomon's Seal may assist in tightening a ligament or tendon if it is determined to be too loose, or loosening it if too tight.
If a tear is determined, it may assist the body to restore the tissue to best use as possible.
If more moisture or fluid is needed for that tissue it attempts to increase the amount.

Transdermal Magnesium is vital for cellular regeneration during healing of an injury. It regulates ATP (cellular energy), and may help relieve/reduce pain, bruising and swelling, improve pliability of bones and connective tissues, relax the mind from stress response to injury.
Application: Rub Magnesium spray onto affected area. Then apply our liniment and/or salve. Ideally, next place moist heat (heating pad atop a moistened felt pad is ideal!) over area for 45 minutes or so.

Muscles

 

Issues related to:
Sprains, strains, over-exertion, tears

Who suffers:
Sore, strained, overused and aching muscles are commonplace, resulting from many types of activities, from athletes to the elderly

  • Helps strengthen and harmonize entire muscular/skeletal system
  • Helps reduce soreness or minor pain of muscles and related tissues as a result of injury or strain

Solomon's Seal contains substances that help knit muscle tears by reducing inflammation in the injured area. It strives to lubricate these tissues to help flush toxins. It is an excellent alternative to over-the-counter pain relievers and topical cremes that have alcohol bases, including balms of a "icy-hot" nature.

Transdermal Magnesium is vital for cellular regeneration during healing of an injury, or when one is engaged in energy-intense activities, especially athletics and outdoor activities. It notably reduces muscle aches, pains, cramping and spasms. Magnesium regulates Calcium so that it is not deposited in injured or vulnerable soft tissues or joints (which may show as stiffness, arthritis, sensitive touch spots, etc.).
Application: Rub Magnesium spray onto affected area. Then apply our liniment and/or salve. Ideally, next place moist heat (heating pad atop a moistened felt pad is ideal!) over area for 45 minutes or so.

Bursae

 

Issues related to:
Bursitis is a very common non-disease condition, often caused by a blunt force trauma or overuse that inflames the bursae in joint areas.

Who suffers:
Athletes and active people
Office workers (elbows and hands)
Workers regularly on their knees
Anyone who may bang their elbow, knee, hip or shoulder

  • May reduce discomfort and pain at the affected joint location
  • Restores and regulates appropriate amount of synovial fluid in the bursae

Solomon's Seal is very effective in all conditions related to bursae and synovial membranes that buffer key joint areas (Tennis Elbow, or shoulder stiffness are consequences). Bursitis is often treated with over-the-counter pain relievers that can affect and irritate the gastrointestinal tract. Solomon's seal, taken as a tincture, salve and liniment is an excellent alternative. It importantly regulates synovial fluid build-up within the protective membranes surrounding joints.

Transdermal Magnesium is vital for cellular regeneration during healing of an injury. It reduces pain, discomfort and swelling.
Application: Rub Magnesium spray onto affected area. Then apply our liniment and/or salve. Ideally, next place moist heat (heating pad atop a moistened felt pad is ideal!) over area for 45 minutes or so.

Bones

 

Issues related to:
broken or crazed bones, bone spurs, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, crackling sounds in joints, bone stress injuries, joint inflammation, damaged soft connective tissues, arthritis, among others

Who suffers:
Any active person or athlete
Those with arthritis and its symptoms
The elderly, especially women

  • May help to strengthen bones and decalcify unhealthy deposits
  • Assists in the repair of broken bones
  • May speed recovery after surgery in case of broken bones, tendon or ligament damage, soft connective tissues, etc
  • May help the body to reabsorb bone spurs by correcting natural occuring imbalances in the tensions of the muscles, ligaments, and tendons

Solomon's Seal, like numerous other herbs, is theorized to have what is called a "plasticity, or regeneration, effect." This means that, it strives to return them to as good a condition as possible during the repair and remodeling phases of bone restoration.  People with joint discomfort have found excellent relief, as have athletes and those who experience bone injuries.

Transdermal Magnesium is vital for cellular regeneration during healing of an injury. It reduces pain, discomfort and swelling. Increased Mg intake is very important to offset the tendency for Calcium to migrate and lodge in a bone-injured area, causing stiffness, arthritic symptoms, bone spurs and pressure-sensitive spots. Athletes and elderly especially benefit from increased Mg to prevent bone rigidity and vulnerablity to breakage.
Application: Rub Magnesium spray onto affected area. Then apply our liniment and/or salve. Ideally, next place moist heat (heating pad atop a moistened felt pad is ideal!) over area for 45 minutes or so.

Joints

 

Issues related to:
joint pain, cracking joints, inflamed connective tissues, stiffness, etc.

Who suffers:
Any person with joint issues experienced by assertive activity and sports
Those engaged in work or recreational activities of repetitive motions
Those with normal wear and tear associated with aging
Those with obesity or weight issues
People with diseases such as diabetes, osteoarthritis, etc.

  • Helps the body to produce synovial fluid to create less friction or grinding in joints
  • Lubricates and strengthens connective tissues around joints (tendons & ligaments)
  • Reduces discomfort in joints and surrounding connective tissues
  • Increases joint flexibility

Solomon's Seal is excellent for dealing with all types of joint issues. It reduces joint discomfort and assists the body to add lubrication and synovial fluid to the joint areas to reduce pain, clicking and stiffness.

Transdermal Magnesium is vital for cellular regeneration during healing of an injury. It reduces pain, discomfort and swelling. Increased Mg intake is very important to offset the tendency for Calcium to migrate and lodge in a joint, causing stiffness, arthritic symptoms, bone spurs and pressure-sensitive spots. The elderly especially benefit from increased Mg to prevent joint rigidity and clicking.
Application: Rub Magnesium spray onto affected area. Then apply our liniment and/or salve. Ideally, next place moist heat (heating pad atop a moistened felt pad is ideal!) over area for 45 minutes or so.

Wounds & Bruises

 

Issues related to:
bruises, skin ulcerations, burns, sores, irritations, swelling, congealed blood, among others

  • Speeds healing of bruises from blows and falls
  • Helps remove congealed blood and draw out infected material and dirt
  • Aids in healing wounds
  • Heals skin ulcerations, light burns, sores, or skin irritations that cause itching or stinging (such as poison ivy)

When Solomon's Seal is formulated with other healing herbs into a salve, a synergistic effect is created to speed healing. We call our salves "workhorses" because their usefulness for external injuries is broad and effective. The natural component allantoin in Solomon's Seal is known to be effective in discomfort reduction and restoration of soft tissue health.

Transdermal Magnesium is vital for cellular regeneration during healing of an injury. It reduces pain, discomfort and swelling. Increased Mg intake is very important to offset the tendency for Calcium to migrate and lodge in a wounded area. Mg also boosts the immune system to help support an injury or diseased condition.
Application: Rub Magnesium spray onto affected area. Then apply our liniment and/or salve. Ideally, next place moist heat (heating pad atop a moistened felt pad is ideal!) over area for 45 minutes or so.

Cartilage

 

Issues related to:
damaged cartilage
needed restortion of synovial fluid in joints

Who suffers:
Athletes & sports enthusiasts
People injured on the job or in accidents
The elderly
People with weight issues
People with diseases such as diabetes & osteoarthritis

  • May help support cartilage health or regeneration through the adjusting of the connective tissue tensions on the joint

Perhaps the greatest benefit Solomon's Seal provides in joints is the regulation of necessary synovial fluid that buffers the joint bones rubbing against each other because of absent or damaged cartilage. Researchers are at odds as to whether cartilage can optimally regenerate itself. However, Solomon's Seal appears to aid somewhat in this proces, in theory helping to activate or support collagen production at key joint surfaces, and regulating moisture in buffering membranes around affected joints. Many people have found improved comfort and mobility using our tinctures and formulas — signs of joint health.

Transdermal Magnesium is vital for cellular regeneration during healing of an injury. It reduces pain, discomfort and swelling. Increased Mg intake is very important to offset the tendency for Calcium to migrate and lodge in a wounded area.

Tissue Injury

 

Issues related to:
All injuries that involve torn, damaged or inflamed tissues of the muscular-skeletal system
Connective tissues (tendons, ligaments, etc.)
Gastrointestinal issues & inflammation
Lung issues
Caritilage damage

Who suffers:
Athletes & sports enthusiasts
Musicians, gardeners, laborers, dancers, etc.
Those suffering from conditions related to aging & disease, such as arthritis
People on medications

  • Produces a "plastic response" through its inherent ability to help injured or diseased tissues restore to as near an original state as possible
  • Supports reestablishment of connective tissue balance and tension to correct old injuries and prevent new injuries
  • May relieve connective tissue (tendon, ligament) discomfort or help moderate symptoms caused by aging or overuse of joints

Solomon's Seal is especially effective in regenerating tissue damage. It also strives to regulate moisture and lubrication of tissues to enhance and hasten healing. It promotes the secretion of synovial fluids to joint areas.

Solomon's Seal is constantly "reading" the body to determine how to help it heal itself. This "regeneration response" is what may make this herb so effective.

Transdermal Magnesium is vital for cellular regeneration during healing of an injury, importantly stimulating ATP (cellular energy) production.It reduces pain, discomfort and swelling. Increased Mg intake is very important to offset the tendency for Calcium to migrate and lodge in a wounded area, especially soft tissues like muscles. Mg also restores skin vitality.
Application: Rub Magnesium spray onto affected area. Then apply our liniment and/or salve. Ideally, next place moist heat (heating pad atop a moistened felt pad is ideal!) over area for 45 minutes or so.

Women's Health

 

Issues related to:
menstrual cramps & PMS, excessive bleeding, nervousness & tension, hot flashes and menopausal discomfort, urinary tract infections, bladder irritation, vaginitis, pelvic weakness, etc.

  • Supports a normal health attitude during PMS and menopause
  • Eases cramps, mild mood changes, and edema associated with the menstrual cycle

Historically, Solomon's Seal has long been used for women's issues. Women have long reported benefits such as supporting vaginal and uterine/ovarian systems health, regulating necessary fluids to tissues, monitor and regulate blood flow, and lower blood pressure, as necessary.

Women have reported relief of symtoms of menstrual cramps and discomfort, and restoration of suppresed menses. Overall, Solomon's Seal has a cooling and calming effect on nerves, tension, and the like.

Transdermal Magnesium is vital for cellular regeneration during healing of an injury. It reduces pain, discomfort and swelling. Magnesium especially eases PMS, menopause, vaginal dryness, among other feminine concerns. It regulates blood flow, reduces cramping and spasms, improves skin and hair vitality, eases headaches and sensitivity.
Application: Rub Magnesium spray onto affected area. Then apply our liniment and/or salve. Ideally, next place moist heat (heating pad atop a moistened felt pad is ideal!) over area for 45 minutes or so.

Gastrointestinal Health

 

Issues related to:
damaged tissues & walls, inflammation, irritation, ulceration, indigestion, heartburn, intestinal inflammation, chronic dysentery and diarrhea

Who suffers:
People on medications
Anyone with dietary issues associated with reactions to foods
Those regularly using over-the-counter pain relievers (NSAIDs)
People with ulcers
Travelers affected by viruses & bacteria in food, water, etc.

  • The allantoin in Solomon's Seal acts as an anti-inflammatory that is good for mild gastrointestinal issues
  • Soothes irritated or damaged tissues and reduces general discomfort.
  • The mucilaginous qualities help to soothe and ease gastric irritation while feeding healthy bacteria in the intestines

Solomon's Seal, when ingested as an herbal infusion (a tea, either hot or cold), has unique, quick-acting benefits. As a demulcent with strong mucilaginous (gelatinous) qualities, Solomon’s Seal tea is soothing and protective to the mucous membranes and other irritated or inflamed internal tissues of the body, especially the lungs, pancreatic system, and the gastrointestinal tract.

Solomon’s Seal is an effective anti-inflammatory because it contains nature's natural reliever, allantoin. The tea can be useful in lessening the severity of gastrointestinal conditions, including ulceration, indigestion, heartburn, irritated or inflamed digestive tract, and diarrhea. It is beneficial for the entire digestive tract.

Solomon’s Seal is a mild diuretic and detoxifier. There is no question that tea makes you pee more, though not excessively so. It promotes the formation of urine by the kidney and may aid in flushing the body of toxins and excess water, and breaking down fat.

Transdermal Magnesium is vital for cellular regeneration during healing of an injury. Mg also boosts the immune system to help support an injury or diseased condition. It also relieves pains, aches, cramping and discomfort.

About Tea Preparation

It is important to prepare your tea correctly. The Internet widely gives improper dosage amounts of 1 tsp per cup — this is not correct, and may cause a headache and upset stomach!
Use only 1/2 tsp per 6-10 ounces of water, hot or cold.

Our tea has no fillers and no caffeine. A hot cup of tea is mild, slightly nutty & sweet.

Optimal benefits of our tea are actually obtained when created as a cold drink sipped throughout the day.

Lungs

 

Issues related to:
fluid build-up & excessive mucous
dry cough
bronchitis
smoker's cough

Who suffers:
People with bronchitis
Those with the after-effects of pneumonia
Chronic smokers
People with colds or sinus infections

  • Assists in expelling excessive fluids and mucous in lungs & throat
  • Adds necessary moisture to dry coughs
  • Assists in drying up sinus cavaties
  • Gives relief to congestion and discomforts of colds & flus

Solomon's Seal is considered an expectorant. It has been used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) related to lung health, including dry cough (helping to produce and expel phlegm from the lungs) and generally to encourage the secretion of body fluids.

Especially useful for coughs & congestion, Solomon's Seal is "mucilaginous" — it can lubricate and soothe the throat and help loosen mucous in the lungs.

We have carefully formulated Solomon's Seal with the synergistic combination of Oregon Grape Root, Osha Root, Mullein Leaf, Usnea, Horsetail, Agrimony to create a potent, high-dosage tincture: Formula #7: Respiratory Rescue.

Heart

 

Issues related to:
heart health
high blood pressure

  • Useful as a cardio-tonic with the potential for lowering high blood pressure
  • Has a gentle regulating effect on the heart muscle
  • Research at the U.S. National Institute of Health is presently determining effectiveness in heart health
  • It is important to increase water intake when taking Solomon's Seal

Solomon’s Seal is known to have a mild regulating effect on the heart muscle because it contains small, safe amounts of the substance convallarin, a cardio glycoside. It can be safely used as a mild heart tonic, but if you are pregnant, have low blood pressure, or are on heart medication, it is not recommended that you use Solomon’s Seal without consulting your doctor.

Transdermal Magnesium is vital for cellular regeneration during healing of an injury. Mg also boosts the immune system to help support an injury or diseased condition. Magnesium is a vital regulator of Calcium, Potassium, among other minerals that aid in a healthy heart. It importantly relaxes the heart muscle.

Looking for the Magic Bullet: A Word of Caution
by C. Forrest McDowell, PhD

Let's face it. Everyone is looking for the "Magic Bullet" that somehow cures their ailments and discomforts. The multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical industry as well as the alternative health care industry are totally dependent on peoples' needs to find relief. But in truth, the history of humans has always been about discovering and using the curative properties of nature, including plants.

There are certain discoveries (aspirin, which is derived from the willow tree, comes to mind) that have had a profound effect on palliation and cure. They must, of course, be used in moderation. Attention must be paid to drug interaction so that the use of incompatible remedies does not effectively neutralize their benefits or create unwanted side effects.

History has been very kind to Solomon's Seal. It truly does seem to have diverse healing qualities, with little or no known contraindications or side effects. However, please be sensible about it or any other intervention. The higher one's expectations the greater the potential disappointments.

Be very cautious with your imagination. Don't imagine Solomon's Seal (or any other intervention, for that matter) is working. I can't emphasize this enough. Instead, become attentive to the signals of your body, especially upon rising in the morning or when active (such as exercising or engaging in normal daily activities). You might even want to keep a journal of your observations. Additionally, you might want to assess certain lifestyle choices around diet, exercise, stress management, sleep, and the use of other medications and stimulants (alcohol, recreational drugs, energy drinks, etc.).

In truth, the Magic Bullet we all seek is really dependent upon one thing: the type of lifestyle we create that meets the wellness needs of our body, mind and spirit. In this sense, the benefits you feel from using Solomon's Seal, or any natural intervention, may be the stimulus you need to review and refine personal lifestyle choices that overall affect your wellness. No herbal remedy, no matter how effective, can replace the need for consistent and high level responsibility in that regard.

So, is Solomon's Seal a "magic bullet" or miracle cure? No, in spite of its historically known and diverse healing properties. The miracle cure, in fact, is YOU — your knowledge and commitment to health and wellness, your belief in yourself, your faith and sense of spirit, and finally, your acceptance that perhaps not all things can be cured and made right again. Your ability to respond to life's trials and tribulations, and life's joys and successes, with equanimity, heartfelt effort, and a strong sense of spirit will always be your greatest reward.

The information presented on this website is intended for educational purposes only. The advice and experiences offered on this site are for informational purposes. We do not make any claims for "cures," though many people do use herbs for the maintenance of good health. See your Health care practitioner when suffering from a serious or chronic illness. Self diagnosis and treatment, which is your moral right, should be done with an eye of discernment. These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, cure, treat or prevent disease, illness or distressing conditions. Individual results may vary. It is always advisable to consult with your own health care provider and/or to fully educate yourself as to the benefits and possible complications of any alternative form of treatment.

Much of what is known about herbal interventions is based upon historical use and anectodal comments and observations from use. Medicine today is primarily focusing on an efficacy-based model, meaning proof by scientific, controlled research. The intent is to ensure safety of use for the consumer. The consequence, however, is that much about the folk-based use of plants, including their preparations by well-intended and informed herbalists, is under question. Similarly, efficacy-based medicine places little value on testimonial response. This is why the FDA does not permit testimonies by users on websites — personal observations may wrongly influence or give hope to others.

To be honest, much of what is known about plants is about drawing a reference to how their known components can affect the body.
In other words, a plant (like Solomon's Seal) is, in truth, only theorized to be capable of affecting the body in certain ways by examining its phytochemical make-up.
This is why we provide a page specific to analyzing the restorative qualities of Solomon's Seal HERE.
Other plants may also have some of these same phytochemical properties that affect the body in the same way. Both scientific research and real-time observation of plant components and effects is necessary to create a body of knowledge and information by which to draw conclusions that people may follow.

In summary, by visiting this website and reading its educational material, AND by using any products offered on this website, you are acknowledging the fact that plant-based remedies, although very safe when properly prepared and formulated, do not generally have strong-based science to support claims of use, other than historical and anecdotal observation. The FDA and other regulatory agencies, including international ones, are especially vigilant about the claims made for herbal remedies, whether they be true or not. To that point, we have attempted to be as straightforward as possible with the information provided on the website about the herbs described and potential benefits.
