Lyme Disease Resources
Make tick checks part of your post-outdoor routine. And if you think (or know) you have Lyme disease, seek medical attention, and consider incorporating Phyllanthus niruri herbal tea into your daily diet.
In 2021, we wrote about H. pylori infections, borreliosis and Lyme neuroborreliosis, Lyme carditis, and Phyllanthus niruri herbal tea. We encourage you to learn everything you can about why Phyllanthus niruri is a real powerhouse.GET LYME DISEASE RESOURCES
Botanical Herbal Supplements: Cryptolepis
A 2020 study in Frontiers in Medicine tested a panel of botanical and natural products commonly used by Lyme disease patients. The study found Cryptolepis sanguinolenta to be highly active in vitro against both growing Borrelia burgdorferi and non-growing stationary phase Borrelia burgdorferi.READ THE CRYPTOLEPIS FAQ
Mediterranean Cistus incanus Tea
We write a lot about Cistus incanus herbal tea (also called Pink Rock Rose) because the health benefits it offers are truly marvelous. In 2021, we discussed how it can keep mosquitoes away, repel ticks, prevent bug bites, break through biofilms, and provide chronic illness support. We also shared Cistus brewing methods and a video showing how to brew Cistus incanus tea.
Because of its healing properties and taste qualities, Mediterranean Cistus incanus tea is popular with those seeking immune support, insect repellant support, and overall wellness. High-quality, Mediterranean Cistus incanus is in large demand and low supply. We have it in stock.WHY CISTUS IS SO AMAZING
Botanical Herbal Supplements: Polygala
Polygala tenuifolia mood enhancing tea is often used to improve learning and memory and increase awareness and clarity. Its Chinese name, Yuan Zhi, means “high aspirations.” We call it the “will strengthener.”
Polygala may improve creative thinking and manifested ideas. Buddhist monks use it to support meditation and focus. It’s thought to calm the heart, ease restlessness, and provide natural anxiety relief. It may also support the sleep process by relaxing the body and discharging repressed emotions.READ THE POLYGALA FAQ
Lessons from the Darkness
For four years, Lyme disease took a toll on Michael Van der Linden’s health, his finances, his ability to hold down a job, his social life, and even his sense of self worth. Michael healed himself with the right foods, drank Phyllanthus niruri tea three times a day, and became more mindful of the world around him. He also learned to be kinder and more forgiving toward himself.
It’s an important read, especially around the holidays.READ THE FREE E-BOOK

More About Botanical Herbal Supplements
