Viral Solutions™ Discussion:
If any natural remedy were needed for viral epidemics, this would be our top recommendation! This blend was inspired by the collaboration of Dr. Stephen Buhner’s suggestions for viral support, along with our own wildcrafted twist! We always wildcraft whatever we can, as well as try to follow his recommendations, as they have truly had phenomenal, world-wide success! What many may not realize is that many of us may have bacterial infections synergizing with our viral pathogens! Rather than taking a single herb, this offers a blend of herbs that specialize in bacteria AND viral processes.
When a viral infection occurs, you may want to work on other aspects as well, such as the lymphatic channels. Quick action is crucial to slowing pathogens that may be capable of spreading all the way around the world in the matter of weeks. We are told that they may produce an entirely new generation in a matter of minutes! Viruses may favor the area of the brain, especially those that are injected by a bug bite. The lymphatic channel may act as a highway to other parts of the body. Once in place, cytokines released may initiate the inflammatory process. Protection of myelin sheaths is imperative, as they may be the main structures affected by the cytokine storms. Immunity should always be kept in mind with a viral infection as well. Lastly, if breathing becomes an issue during a viral infection, you may want to consider nebulizing diluted essential oils to soothe any cytokine storms that may be occurring within the lungs.
Mother Nature provides us with plants that contain potent antiviral compounds, which we will discuss going further. The herbs in this blend have proven their effectiveness and we have chosen broad-spectrum antivirals, viral replication and harmful enzyme inhibitors, gene expression reducers, cell fusion and penetration inhibitors, cell protectors, myelin protectors, and many innate resistors of viral processes that help it to advance. We have also kept in mind the many other body parts and systems that may also be affected by a viral infection.
The main component of this blend, usnea, is created by a mutual relationship between fungus and algae. It is dense in usnic acid, which only dissolves in alcohol, making a tincture the ideal way to use it. Elderberry has shown in studies to have a direct action on viruses, as well as on the immune system through cytokines. Lomatium is actually one of our “go to” herbs when it comes to viral support, especially EBV. Chinese Baikal skullcap is said to be an antiviral synergist and it is considered to be one of the strongest in Chinese medicine. It has been said to completely inhibit many viral processes in mice. Licorice root is used with intentions to stop encysted viral proteins from fusing with host cells. It may also prevent viruses from penetrating cell membranes. Isatis root may offer capabilities to lower viral replication.
Porcelain berry is rarely heard of, although it has been studied extensively for its activity against many enteroviral strains and hepatitis. It is a very rare herb, which we wildcraft ourselves. Some claim that it has shown the strongest antiviral compounds tested! The blend also contains many adaptogens, which are known for carrying other herbal compounds to where they may be needed the most.
Sophora contains matrine and oxamatrine compounds, which have been extensively studied, due to their biological activity against resistant viruses. Poke root is one of the most intense lymphatic herbs but its “PAP” (pokeweed antiviral proteins) have been studied, especially against HIV. Rhodiola comes highly recommended for EBV support. Lastly, phellodendron and coptis are used for their natural berberine content and for their amazing apoptogenic capabilities. We could literally go on and on but these are only a few of the amazing plants that we have chosen for this blend!
We highly recommend getting 2 different variations of the following to know exactly what a specific herb will, or will not do for you, as well as to achieve saturation.
Standard Tincture – Herbal compounds extracted in an alcohol base. Alcohol offers a superior absorption rate. We recommend allowing your dose to sit under the tongue for 3+ minutes, then swallowing it down with a drink of water. Otherwise, you may add it to 4 oz. of water, juice, or a smoothie. Microscopic compounds are readily available to be absorbed through tissues, into the bloodstream, and then circulated to organs.
Lipospheric Tincture – This is a standard tincture that is put through an energetic process. We collide the herbal compounds with oxygen molecules, to encase them both within an oxygenated bubble. The difference can be clearly seen because the tincture lightens in color. The lipospheres’ may have the capability to surpass the bioavailability of a standard tincture, although it exhibits all of the same benefits.
Glycerite – Herbal compounds extracted in vegetable glycerin. This contains NO alcohol and NO sugar. The taste of glycerin resembles syrup, which makes it ideal for children. This version may be best for those highly sensitive or are seeking a nonalcoholic extraction. Doses may need to be up to three times higher than a tincture to receive similar benefits. They can be taken in the same way as tinctures, which is in 4 oz. of water, juice, or a smoothie.
Vegetarian Capsule – Size 00, vegetarian capsules, hand-encapsulated, to order. The capsule is swallowed with at least 4 oz. of water or juice, which is broken down by stomach acids. Once the herbal compounds go through digestion, they then get absorbed by tissues.
Herbal Tea – Teabags are handmade to order and can be brewed up to three times each. The constituents will be continually extracted with each brew. Be sure to squeeze the bag gently upon finishing your cup of lovely tea. The label specifies the brewing instructions, which highly depends on the parts of the plant that are used in the tea. Keep in mind, this is medicinal tea and there are no additives. It may be best to drink as is, without adding a sugar substitute. Don’t forget the slurry, medicinal residue that settles to the bottom of the cup!
Loose Herbal Powder – We take pride in the freshness and quality of our herbal powders, as we hand-grind down each herb to order, as well as in any above process. Our inventory of herbs is always purchased, when possible, in whole form, if it is not wildcrafted by us. We ethically wildcraft many herbs, which ensures the highest content of medicinal compounds and freshness. We also attempt to include every part of the plant, if possible. We believe wildcrafted, and full spectrum to be the superior version of any herb. If an herb is wildcrafted, it will indicate so on each label by the abbreviation “WC”. The same goes for full spectrum, as each label indicates the parts used. We give multiple part options for each herb individually as well.
All variations are animal & child-safe, at the appropriate dosage. View our child’s dosage guide by Clicking Here.
