The 1-2-3 METHOD
for Deepest Healing Potential

Many of our customers 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.

This method combines the therapuetic benefits of Transdermal and Oral forms of intervention.

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 restorative potential of using the 1-2-3 Method

Cortesia Solomon's Seal Tincture
Formula #1:
JOINT HEALTH

jointhealthIngredients: Solomon's Seal Root (Polygonatum biflorum), Gravel Root (Eupatorium purpureum), Pleurisy Root (Asclepias tuberosa) – all organically grown or respectfully wildcrafted. Organic Neutral Grain (Gluten-free) Alcohol - 50%, Distilled water

Suggested Use: 15 drops (1 serving), 3x daily. Take regularly for 30 days to monitor any benefits. It is okay to use for more than the first month.

Benefits: Aids and supports lubrication and restoration of joints (such as knees, ankles, shoulders, neck, elbows, wrists, fingers, etc.) and bufferings membranes (synovial and bursae) to increase strength and flexibility. Assists in the restoration of damaged tendons, ligaments, & connective tissue. Helps to eliminate excess calcium deposits in joints.

Joint integrity can be compromised by injury, over activity, disease, or simply aging, as seen in arthritic discomfort. Joint issues may have their root in injuries from years ago, such as whiplash suffered in a car accident, or a badly sprained ankle that never quite healed, but they may also stem from the general wear and tear of an active life. When acquiring a bone-related injury, this formula may be a good option to stimulate quick restorative response, even pre- or post-surgery.

*Note: Keep in mind that it is well known that diet and weight issues also play critical roles in the progression of joint dysfunction and inflammation. Becoming well-informed nutritionally and acting on this information can also play an important role in the moderation or cessation of your symptoms.

ABOUT THE HERBS

The combined synergy of these three herbs is what makes this formula an excellent resource for restoration and maintenance of Joint Health

Gravel Root is known for its ability to bring minerals into and out of solution, hence its use as a remedy to dissolve and remove deposits in joints to create more flexibility without discomfort. It is also useful for weak hair and nails, to keep solids and liquids in balance in the body (kidney functioning), and as a tonic for the uterus.

Pleurisy Root, like Gravel Root, is excellent for joint and membranes lubrication, and ease of pain or discomfort.

Solomon's Seal works to harmonize, feed, lubricate, and tighten or loosen (as needed) tendons, ligaments, attachments, and joints, among its other numerous benefits.

Formula #2:
BONE HEALTH

BoneHealthIngredients: Solomon's Seal (Polygonatum biflorum), Boneset (Eupatorium perfoliatum), Mullein leaf (Verbascum thapsus) – all organically grown or respectfully wildcrafted. Organic Neutral Grain (Gluten-free) Alcohol - 50%, Distilled water

Suggested Use: 15 drops (1 serving), 3x daily. Take regularly for 30 days to monitor any benefits. It is okay to use for more than the first month.

Benefits: This formula is helpful for those who are dealing with broken bones, stress or compression fractures, or any break that cannot be set (such as broken ribs). It also promotes bone recalcification, as needed. It will help strengthen the entire muscular-skeletal system.

Important Note: Please keep in mind that such a formula does not replace the need for appropriate medical care, the setting of broken bones, and the possible need for a protective cast.

This formula also works well in tandem with our Cortesia Solomon's Seal Acute & Chronic Injury Salve (see below for description), which is applied externally, if possible, to the area of concern.

ABOUT THE HERBS

Boneset, as the name suggests, helps bones to heal strongly and well. Compression fractures of disks have sometimes been healed through its use. It also aids in bone recalcification, as needed.

Mullein, among many other uses, helps set bones in the right place (such as broken ribs and broken fingers or toes), and can help in straightening the spine. It also happens to be an excellent remedy for the respiratory system - useful for dry coughs, infections, excess phlegm, and to tone the mucous membranes.

Solomon's Seal helps to calcify and strengthen bones and decalcify unhealthy deposits. It also joins and seals broken bones, harmonizing and strengthening the entire muscular-skeletal system. It hastens the healing of bruises from blows and falls and the recovery following surgical procedures.

CARTILAGE & TISSUE HEALTH

Cartilage & Tissue HealthIngredients: Solomon's Seal Root (Polygonatum biflorum), Horsetail Leaf (Equisetum arvense) – all organically grown or respectfully wildcrafted. Organic Neutral Grain (Gluten-free) Alcohol - 50%, Distilled water

Suggested Use: 15 drops (1 serving), 3x daily. Take regularly for 30 days to monitor any benefits. It is okay to use for more than the first month.

Benefits: This formula is restorative to torn or stretched tendons and ligaments, and deteriorated cartilage. It helps maintain adjustments of connective tissue tensions on the joints, and aids in the health of tissues, bones, mucous membranes, arteries, skin, weak hair and nails.

ABOUT THE HERBS

Horsetail's high silica content may be restorative to damaged cartilage and structures. It strengthens connective tissue, bones, cartilage, mucous membranes, arteries, skin, and other tissue. It is also a remedy for what herbalist Matthew Wood calls "low silica content in the body and weakness in the hard structures of the body" – for example, thin hair with split ends, nails that break easily, and persistent hangnails.

Solomon's Seal produces what may be called a "plastic response" to aid in returning affected tissues and connective tissues to optimal health specific to the individual.. It eases the pain or discomfort associated with an injury while healing.

Formula #4:
PAIN & TENSION EASE

paineeaseIngredients: Solomon's Seal (Polygonatum biflorum), Agrimony (Agrimonia eupatoria) – all organically grown or respectfully wildcrafted. Organic Neutral Grain (Gluten-free) Alcohol - 50%, Distilled water

Suggested Use: 15 drops (1 serving), 3x daily. Take regularly for 30 days to monitor any benefits. It is okay to use for more than the first month.

ABOUT THE HERBS

Agrimony is another of those highly beneficial herbs that has been used for centuries as a "vulnerary", ie. for pain relief. It has been known to regulate the pain associated with muscular/skeletal injuries, joint injuries, burns, minor headaches, and more.

Solomon's Seal has also been known for centuries as an important vulnerary (pain reliever). It has strong nutritive, lubricating, and cooling properties and is an excellent regulator of the tension of tendons, ligaments, attachments and joints.

ABOUT THE HERBS

Please read the details of the herbs in the other formulas above.

SHOULD YOU TAKE THIS FORMULA?

Occasionally, someone comes to us with an injury that is multi-faceted, requiring what would be the equivalent of three of our Solomon’s Seal formulas – 1# Joint Health, #2 Bone Health, and #3 Cartilage & Tissue Health. While it is easy to take two of the existing formulas at the same time, taking three different formulas at once is not recommended because there is Solomon’s Seal in each formula, and you don’t want to overdo the amount of Solomon’s Seal you consume.

It’s not right for everyone, but for those with a complex array of symptoms as listed above, this is certainly worth a try. Regular use for one to two months is highly recommended.

GO HERE >


ABOUT THE HERBS

Solomon’s Seal: An excellent herb for upper and lower respiratory ailments, including lung and sinus infections, and persistent coughs (especially hard coughs when the mucous is difficult to expectorate). As an expectorant, Solomon’s Seal loosens mucous in the lungs so it can be expelled. As a demulcent with strong mucilaginous (gelatinous) properties, Solomon’s Seal is soothing and protective to the mucous membranes and other irritated and enflamed tissues of the body, including the lungs, throat, and gastro-intestinal tract.

Osha Root: An anti-viral and anti-bacterial that is especially useful for the respiratory system. Ancient Chinese physicians used it as a diaphoretic to sweat out respiratory infections. Thus, Osha Root induces sweating, which can prevent the development of a full-blown head cold or flu. Is can also be useful for dry or wet coughs, sore throats, some allergies, bronchial infections, fever, early stages of tonsillitis, and as a “bitter” to help stimulate the GI Tract and thus the appetite (“feed a cold”). Additionally, Osha Root is a diuretic (increases flow of urine), a decongestant (breaks up congestion), and a carminative (induces expulsion of gas from stomach or intestines).

Oregon Grape Root: This woodland plant, native to the Pacific Northwest, contains berberine, an anti-bacterial. It is helpful against a wide variety of bacteria in either local or systemic (system-wide) bacterial infections, including general colds, lung congestion, earaches, toothaches, and more. Considered a very effective replacement for the endangered herb Goldenseal.

Mullein Leaf: Useful for acute respiratory issues, congestion, coughs, hoarseness, loss of appetite, bronchial infections, and to reduce fever and open the lungs. Mullein can also help to soothe irritated membranes and any cough reflex where there is a lack of secretion (ie. harsh, dry racking coughs).

Usnea:  A lichen that grows on oak trees in the cool, damp forests of the Pacific Northwest. It is an immune system tonic and has been used in Chinese medicine for over three thousand years. Usnea can be an effective remedy for persistent, hacking coughs, colds, flu, bronchitis, lung infections, earlier stages of strep throat, and inflammations of the mucous membranes in the mouth and larynx.

Horsetail:  Strengthens weak mucous membranes. When weak, membranes are easily irritated by foreign substances, giving rise to allergies, especially in the sinuses. Horsetail contains silica, which is especially helpful for those who are allergic to many different things. It is useful for sinus congestion, dripping head colds, and some coughs.

Agrimony: Used as a vulnerary (pain reliever), and to help alleviate all types of tension, whether mental, physical, or emotional. Tension held anywhere in the body can greatly slow the healing process. Agrimony can also aid in a variety of respiratory problems, including coughs, nasal congestion, dripping and irritation, watery eyes, shortness of breath, accumulation of mucous in the lungs, flu, and chills alternating with fever.

Cortesia ACUTE & CHRONIC INJURY SALVE
NO OPEN WOUNDS!


SSSalveThis is a powerful workhorse of a salve in which every ingredient is highly beneficial. At Cortesia Sanctuary, we have been making healing herbal salves for many years, but we are especially proud of this unique formulation.

Remember, topical applications of the Acute & Chronic Injury Salve work synergistically well with one of the Solomon's Seal Tinctures (taken internally).

Ingredients: Solomon's Seal Root, Arnica flowers, Calendula flowers, Comfrey leaf and root, St. John's Wort flowers, Mullein leaf, and Horsetail in a base of extra virgin organic olive oil, and beeswax.

USE: Apply directly as needed (no open wounds). You may wish to bandage, wrap, or cover the area of application to protect your clothing from any oil residue.

Benefits and uses: For injured, sore, painful or inflamed tendons, ligaments, muscles, attachments, and joints. Also excellent for strains, sprains, bruises, and burns. Not suitable for open wounds.

NOTE: In specific cases, this salve can be highly effective when used in combination with one of the Solomon's Seal Tinctures, especially Formula #1 Joint Health or Formula #2 Bone Health

ABOUT THE HERBS

Arnica – Highly effective for bruises and sprains, as it promotes healing and causes a reabsorption of internal bleeding. Arnica stimulates blood circulation and is also excellent for injuries to joints and muscles, including back strains.

Calendula – Very soothing for inflammation, dry skin, burns and sunburn.

Comfrey – Cooling and lubricating to sprains, strains, inflamed or stiff joints, and other injuries to joints and muscles. The allantoin in comfrey is absorbed through the skin and speeds healing. Comfrey also encourages cell regrowth in connective tissues and broken bones and breaks down red blood cells in bruising.

Horsetail – Anti-inflammatory and antiseptic, good for bones, muscles, and joints. Can help soothe varicose veins (though best in this case if used with the Solomon's Seal Tincture Formula #3: Cartilage & Tissue Health).

Mullein – External application to soothe nerve pain and to promote setting and healing of broken bones, fractures, sprains, and strains. Good for easing pain of minor burns.

Solomon's Seal – For use on inflamed, painful, or injured tendons, ligaments, attachments, and joints. Speeds healing of bruises from blows or falls.

St. John's Wort – Localized nerve pain, such as sciatica, sprains, and cramps. Also for burns and muscle or joint inflammations such as tennis elbow.

Cortesia HEALING SALVE
Improved Formula with Solomon's Seal
OPEN WOUNDS OK!

cortesia salve

THOUSANDS SOLD SINCE 1995!

No kidding! This is an amazing salve for many types of injuries and small run-ins with life. We all know those little "ow"-ies we get in the yard or garden, kitchen or shop; at work or play.

We have received hundreds of rave comments about our salve's effectiveness (oh, if babies could talk, too!). A good, quick-acting salve is hard to find. When found, it is treasured.

Ingredients: Calendula, Chickweed, Prunella, St. John's Wort, Yarrow, Comfrey, Lemon balm, Plantain, Usnea/Oak Moss, Bloodroot, Oregon Grape, and Solomon's Seal, all organically grown or wildcrafted at Cortesia Sanctuary and prepared in a base of extra virgin organic olive oil and organic beeswax. Unscented.

Dosage: Apply directly as needed. Tip: a little goes a long way! It can be applied to clean open wounds. You may desire to lightly cover the salved area for healing reasons and/or to protect clothing, etc from soiling (can wash out!).

Benefits and uses: There must be a thousand uses for this salve, based upon hundreds of testimonies over the years. Here's a short-list:

  • Diaper rash (Parents love our Healing Salve, and so do babies!)
  • Skin rashes (Gardeners swear by our Salve's soothing & quick-acting relief)
  • Poison ivy & oak, hives, etc. (Outdoors people keep our Salve handily packed)
  • Chapped lips, hands,sunburns, minor burns (Quick-acting relief that stays)
  • Minor cuts and bruises and insect bites, even puncture wounds
  • Skin cancer (a number of people have reported reliable relief and healing)

The Herbs

Bloodroot - Excellent, in very small amounts, for skin abnormalmalities and skin fungus

Calendula – A "bacteriostatic" (stops the spread of bacteria), keeping an open wound clean. Its timely use may prevent the formation of unsightly scar tissue from forming. As an antiflammatory, antiseptic and antifungal, it is very soothing for inflammation, dry skin, cuts, bruises, scrapes, burns, irritations, chafing, and sunburn.

Chickweed - A valuable first-aid remedy for drawing out stubborn splinters and irritants from insect stings. Soothing for burns, scolds, boils.

Comfrey – Cooling and lubricating to sprains, strains, inflamed or arthritic joints, and other injuries to joints and muscles. The allantoin in comfrey is absorbed through the skin and speeds healing. Comfrey also encourages cell regrowth in clean wounds, connective tissues and broken bones. It also breaks down red blood cells in bruising.

Lemon Balm - A well-known antidote for insect bites, sores and painful swelling; or, to repel insects

Oregon Grape - An anti-bacertial. Good for skin infections and to prevent external bacterial infection moving in. Useful for exema and early stages of staph infection (helps support interventions using tinctures or antibiotics)

Plantain - Known as an "herbal drawing agent" that assists in drawing out splinters, pus and infection out of wounds. Also useful for boils, shingles, herpes, poison oak/ivy, bruises, bites, frostbite and other skin eruptions. Furthermore, it is cooling to hot inflamed tissues.

Prunella - An effective antibacterial that quickly aids to stop bleeding and close open wounds and cuts. Also useful for bleeding hemorrhoids.

Solomon's Seal - As a demulcent with mucilaginous qualities, it is soothing, cooling and nourishing to a variety of skin conditions, cuts, open wounds, abrasions, and more.

St. John's Wort – Excellent for skin irritations, burns, cuts, and other traumatic injuries in which there may be localized nerve pain or damage, such as sciatica, sprains, and cramps. Can help nerves grow back that would otherwise die. Also for burns and muscle or joint inflammations such as tennis elbow, wrist aching, etc.

Yarrow - Soothing to skin. Helps stop internal and external bleeding such as open wounds, nose bleeds and deep cuts. It is an anti-bacterial and an anti-microbial, and it strengthens the body's ability to fight viral infections.

Usnea (known as Oak Moss) - Actually a lichen that is a combination of two organisms: fungus and algae growing in symbiotic union as one plant. It is commonly found hanging as a lacey moss from oaks and firs (especially in the moist Pacific Northwest). When absorbed internally through the skin in our Healing Salve, it works as an efficient herbal antibiotic, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. As such, it is an immune system builder, stimulating the body's natural defenses. Ours is the only known salve that uses Usnea (it grows so plentiful in the forests surrounding our gardens!), and we have every reason to believe that it is what gives our Cortesia Healing Salve that extra HEALING BOOST!

Cortesia
QUICK RELIEF SPRAY

Solomon's Seal SprayA  good herbal topical spray is worth its weight in gold. It gives immediate relief to an affected area, thereby underscoring its short-term effectiveness. When combined with a salve and/or tincture, it becomes an important part of a synergistic team of intervention over a longer term.

The herbs are steeped for many weeks for optimal potency. We blend herbs that give both a cooling and warming effect, and that work together for increased efficiency and penetration to deeper tissue levels, as transported by the alcohol bases.

Further reading: Cortesia Quick Relief Spray

Uses

  • Sore and inflammed joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments
  • Circulation problems
  • Sprains, strains, and bruises
  • Injuries or discomforts from sports, gardening, work, or recreational activities, associated with the above symptoms
  • Other conditions that may benefit from short-term relief

How to Use

Spray onto the affected area and firmly rub into the skin. This increases sub-dermal blood circulation and transportation of herbs to deeper tissues.The alcohol will quickly evaporate, but the formulated herbs will have penetrated the dermal layers. Use before or after activity, or whenerver joint stiffness is too uncomfortable. Rub more lightly for severe bruises, sprains or hurtful bursitis.

Remember, a herbal spray offers short-term relief. However, as in the case of stiff joints or sore muscles, such aid may be enough to provide needed flexibility. Our spray will likely provide a cooling sensation that lingers for a while.

Special Note: We highly recommend using our spray along with our longer-lasting Acute & Chronic Injury Salve and a tincture. This 3-Step Method is especially effective for providing short-term and long-term healing and relief.

About the Herbs

Witch Hazel base
All-purpose anti-inflammatory, soothing and cooling, also anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. It is an excellent natural herbal carrier for the other herbal ingredients.

Isopropyl Alcohol
Acts as a co-carrier for the other herbal constituents and rapidly evaporates from the skin after it has done its job. The 91% alcohol content insures the best extraction of the therapeutic constituents of herbs we use and the deepest possible penetration of the finished liniment. An all-purpose antiseptic and disinfectant, Isopropyl Alcohol is often used for rubdowns after physical exertion and for general massage purposes.

Solomon’s Seal (polygonatum biflorum)
Works to harmonize, feed, lubricate, and tighten or loosen (as needed) tendons, ligaments, muscles, attachments, and joints.  It is a valuable connective tissue anti-inflammatory.

Comfrey Root (symphytum officinale)
As a vulnerary, it kick-starts the body’s localized natural healing processes almost immediately. Exceptional ability to heal wounds, ulcers, and fractures, and moderate pain. Aids in rapid cell regeneration and bone repair, promotes healing of damaged tendons, ligaments, and swollen or inflamed tissue. Good for soothing a sore back, aching feet, or reducing the general pain.

Calendula (calendula officinalis)
As an anti-inflammatory and vulnerary, it is excellent for bruises, strains, skin inflammations, burns, sunburn, and external wounds that are tender, red, and swollen. 

St. John’s Wort (hypericumperforatum)
Relaxes sore muscles and aids in healing the protective layer (myelin sheath) around the nerve core fibers. It is effective for general pain relief, as an anti-inflammatory, and to speed the healing of varicose veins, bruises, and burns.

Rosemary Essential Oil (from flowers – rosmarinus officinalis)
Helps strengthen the capillaries and has a rejuvenating and toning effect on the skin. Useful for mild muscular pain, rheumatism, circulation problems, excess cellulite, and arthritis. Contains camphor, a stimulant that increases body heat in cold, tense, and arthritic joints. Eases stiffness in the body caused by fluid retention in muscles and other soft tissues. Also combats poor circulation by increasing the blood flow around the body. Suitable for dry, mature skin. Adds a pleasing fragrance to the liniment.

Rosemary Leaf (rosmarinus officinalis)
Among a host of uses with a long history of use, rosemary is instrumental for easing muscle pain, stimulating the circulatory and nervous systems, and promoting increased blood and lymph flow. The terpenoids in rosemary, such as rosmarinic acid, rosmanol, carnosol and ursolic acid provide effective anti-inflammatory benefits. The rosmarinic acid within rosemary also functions as a wide-ranging antioxidant and helps fight free radical damage.

Arnica (arnica montana)
Helps remove congestion by dilating the blood vessels, supporting the circulatory system in more effective disposal of waste tissue and reconstruction of healthy tissue. It is an effective pain reliever and anti-inflammatory, and is useful for muscle spasms, bruises, sprains, and strains.

Cayenne Pepper (capsicum annuum)
Reduces inflammation, soothes stiffness and pain. It is considered a warming ingredient because it helps stimulate local blood circulation to bring vital energy and healing to the affected area. Cayenne is a catalyst for Comfrey, helping the skin to absorb the Comfrey.

Horsetail (equisetum arvense)
Horsetail’s high silica content helps to rebuild damaged cartilage and structures. It strengthens connective tissue, bones, cartilage, mucous membranes, arteries, skin, and other tissue. It is especially useful for misaligned joints restricted in their movement.

Menthol Crystals
A cooling ingredient that is refreshing, aromatic, and helps relieve muscular aches and pains. Extracted from mint, menthol is widely used in health and beauty aids.

100% Pure Magnesium Lite Spray

mgLiteBEST FOR:   Sensitive Skin, Children, Elderly

INGREDIENTS:  100% pure, contaminant-free Magnesium Chloride (MgCl) in distilled water, infused with organic Chamomile essential oil and MSM (methylsulfonylmethane).

We are the only company that offers 3 different strengths of MgCl spray to assist in healing and health maintenance.

Our 100% Pure Magnesium Lite Spray is less concentrated. This is because some people (children, elderly, and those with sensitive skin) may experience a little skin irritation or light rash, using a more concentrated formula. You can also dilute this spray.

AMOUNT OF MgCl:    About 50mg of elemental Magnesium per 3-4 sprays, or 500mg per teaspoon (about 40 sprays). Our 4oz spray bottle contains over 24 teaspoons — the equivalent of about 12,000mg of Magnesium, or about one month's supply of Magnesium.

Distilled Water
Distilled (or pure) water is critical as an activating base for the MgCl crystals and the MSM crystals. Plain tap water may contain impurities, especially fluoride and chlorine, that will essentially negate any benefits of absorption, if not causing an unwanted toxity in the body and bloodstream. Most companies do not identify the type of water used in their product!

Chamomile Essential Oil (organic)   
Chamomile essential oil (made from the flowers) serves many medicinal purposes, but one of the best-documented uses is for relaxation. Aside from having mental calming properties, chamomile also relaxes sore muscles and tight joints. It can ease menstrual cramps and back aches, as well as relax the digestive system to ease upset stomach or indigestion issues. When applied topically to the skin, it soothes redness and irritation. For this reason, it is a common ingredient in skincare. It also eliminates itchiness and is good for those with allergic reactions. Sometimes chamomile is used on rashes. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, it can work to reduce swelling. Finally, the oil has anti-bacterial properties and can help to clean and protect wounds from infections.

Our distilled Chamomile water base helps hydrate the skin to counter the natural salt-brine, residue-tendency of applying only MgCl to the skin. It is an excellent carrier for the MgCl to penetrate deeper cellular levels.

MSM (methylsulfonylmethane)
MSM or methylsulfonymethane is an organic sulfur compound that is well known for its health benefits, especially for joints. Sulfur is a vital mineral and has a catalytic relationship with Magnesium to spark cellular regeneration.

Dr. Stanley Jacob, professor of Surgery at the Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland studied sulfur’s therapeutic benefits in more than 15,000 patients. As the senior author of The Miracle of MSM and MSM: the Definitive Guide, Dr. Jacob presents facts how the sulfur crystals can significantly decrease the pains of arthritis, back injury, headaches, athletic injuries, asthma, carpel tunnel syndrome, autism, and a host of autoimmune diseases like lupus, fibromyalgia, Lyms Disease, etc.

We use the "gold standard" of MSM crystals— OptiMSM™— infused in distilled water. These are not artificially derived, like most commercially available MSM from petroleum waste and methane gas. Our MSM comes from microscopic phytoplankton living in the oceans — the purist kind available.

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.
