Chaparro amargosa Discussion:
One of the more superior herbs that we have had the pleasure to work with. It is a rare desert plant with an odd appearance. It grows in the desert of some parts of the United States and throughout Mexico. It is actually a great source of antioxidants, which we now know may be key to fighting and preventing some of the more difficult modern issues. In Mexico, it is used as an antiperiodic, which means it is kept on hand for periodic use, in attempts to prevent issues from coming on and from returning.
It became a popular remedy after being introduced by Dr. Stephen Buhner, who suggests its use in combination with Desert Willow for systemic candida support, in his book “Herbal Antivirals”. This is why you may see it in a blend with desert willow, including our own, which can be found by Clicking Here.
It has many uses by others that range from its astringent properties for mucus tissues, as an anti-protozoan (which include species of Giardia, Trypanosoma cruzi, and Entamoeba), an anti-amoeba, an anti-viral, a digestive tonic, fever-reduction, anti-malarial, for vision support, to help increase the appetite , and for gallbladder support. It is also suggested to be used as a poultice and for acne support. As a matter of fact, it is used by others topically for many different types of skin issues.
We feel that it is important to point out that It is showing promising results in its activity for some of the more difficult protozoa species, which is highly and widely needed, as far as a natural and effective treatment. It has shown to be active against trypanosomiasis. It is used by traditional Mexican practitioners as an amebiasis treatment. It has also been studied for its activity against Salmonella bacteria.
The variations for each product are in the order that we recommend for that specific one. This may give you an idea of which versions to get and where to start if you decide this is the route for you. There may be instances where we use an ingredient that can only come as a liquid. For example, pokeberry juice or essential oil. Only the liquid products will contain that specific ingredient and it will simply have to be left out of the powdered version. Herbal compounds may accumulate, over time. Saturation is key!
Standard Tinctures – Herbal compounds extracted in an alcohol base, which may offer the highest absorption. When a tincture sets under the tongue, the, pre-extracted compounds are readily bioavailable and they absorb through the tissue, similar to plant intake in nature! Alcohol may carry them into the bloodstream, where they may then may circulate to the organs. For this particular blend, we recommend a tincture.
Lipospheric Tinctures – Standard tinctures are put through an energetic process to collide the herbal compounds and encase them in oxygenated bubbles. This method is an oxygenation process, which completely changes the color of the solution. This version of a tincture may always off the highest absorption.
Capsules – Size 00, vegetable capsules. Our capsules are handmade, to order.
Herbal Tea – Each teabag can be brewed up to three times, resulting in three cups of tea, each. Generally, this means that you may get 60-75 cups of tea per 6 oz. order! Each label specifies the brewing instructions, which highly depends on the parts used in the tea.
Glycerites – Herbal compounds extracted in vegetable glycerin. This may be ideal for those most sensitive and especially children.
Tinctures are animal & child-safe, at the appropriate dosage. They can be used as an additive to personal products like lotion, detox bath, nebulizing, topically, and even as belly button soaks. Best results may come with working up to the highest dose, staying consistent.
We always choose unprocessed, ethically wildcrafted plant material, when possible. We also add freshly harvested, green plant material, wherever we can! This allows for a rare and unique availability of enzymes. Normally these enzymes are lost in the drying process and as far as we know, they are unique to us. Many companies that make simple elixirs don’t even know how to do it properly!
When we purchase herbs, we choose whole plant material, for us to grind into a silky fine powder, as we need it. This ensures quality, freshness, and abundant compounds. “Full-spectrum” means that the product contains every part of the plant, including the roots, and wherever we can, we even add the seed, flower, and/or fruit!
We have had our products energetically tested by an energetic practitioner, using a bioresonance scanning system that is well-known. She reported back that our products were over 300% more energetic than any others in her system! Over the years customers have continued to energetically test our products with their own body and they have passed every test they have ever been put through. Some say they have even surpassed the major brands!
Always use herbals wisely and with common sense!
