Chinese Medicine plus homeopathy: Interview with Gerald St. Clair of Ridgecrest Herbals

What we're trying to do is make Chinese herbal medication easier to understand. The Western herbs are much more written about. Chinese herbs sometimes can't even be pronounced, let alone understood. So we've tried to take the mystery out of it by using names like Blood Sugar Balance, Clear Lungs, Sinus Clear -- things that people can understand. By doing that, we've had a lot of success because one thing I think people do understand is that the Chinese knew what they were doing and still know what they're doing when it comes to herbal medicine.

To prepare the bath, make a standard herbal tea using about 1 gallon of water for a footbath or gallon for a hand bath. Strain out the herbs and pour the tea into a wide basin. Place your bare feet or hands in the basin, and enjoy the relaxing sensation until the water cools down. If you have a warm condition—inflammation, such as from a sprain, or fever or headache—a cool washcloth on the forehead can be a nice addition; refresh it every two to three minutes. Afterward, pour cold water over the top and bottom of your feet and hands, then dry the skin thoroughly.

An isolated case of blistering and inflammation of the eyes, mouth, and penis occurred in a patient within a few days of oral ingestion of an herbal formula containing Red Clover (Monk, 1986). Excessive intake should be avoided due to the estrogenic constituents. Fertility: Red Clover-fed animals show decreased cervical mucus viscoelasticity, a condition that renders their cervix less accessible to spermatozoa. Reduced fertility may thus result from the excessive use of Red Clover (Adams, 1995; Kallelaetal, 1984).

Sometimes the shops offer workshops on using herbs, which can be tremendously helpful in the study of herbal medicine. The more experience you can get, the better! Do your best to seek out organically cultivated herbs. Not only do they have the most healing properties (pesticides are designed to destroy, not heal), but organic cultivation is healthier for the planet and creatures that live upon it. Sometimes you may find supplies of wildcrafted herbs; these are herbs that have been collected from the wild.

There's a science called herbal pharmacognacy, where the best people can identify over 1,000 herbs by taste or smell and tell you how strong they are more accurately than any equipment. People wonder how that could be, and I just remind them to think of wine tasters. Wine tasters' palettes are quite sophisticated and can do far better than any testing equipment known to man. It's the same thing with herbs, and I don't consider myself an herbalist, although I know probably more than 95 percent of the people who do claim to be.

TINCTURES Tinctures are herbal extracts made with alcohol, vegetable glycerin, or vinegar instead of water. Tinctures are especially useful for extracting resins and oils from plant material, which water doesn't do very well. The liquid used to extract the herbs is known as the menstruum. The herbs being tinctured are known as the mark. Prepare the herbs by chopping or grinding them. Put them in a glass jar and cover with the menstruum of your choice, adding enough that there is an extra inch of liquid above the plant material. Store in a cool, dry location. Shake daily.

The herbal bag uses a combination of 10 selected Thai herbs in one compress. Each herb works its specific healing when absorbed into the skin. They include 30% zingiber cassumunar (a type of ginger), 20% turmeric, 20% citrus hystrix, 10% citronella grass, 5% tamarind leaf, 5% ginger, 5% Borneo camphor, and 5% menthol.

One of my favorite simples is nettles. But herbal medicines need not be limited to using a single plant at a time. Many wonderful medicines with great flavor and therapeutic potential can be made by blending herbs. When you are creating your own formulas by mixing herbs together, it is helpful to know as much as possible about their effects, and of course about any possible side effects, in order to evaluate their potential synergy. However, don't be afraid to play around with combinations of herbs that are generally regarded as safe.

Making herbal Medicines m a ydrotherapy, as healing with water is § M known, has been around for as long as L JL. humankind. And why not? Water is an adaptable conductor of many types of energies, from electricity to magnetism to heat. It is also a solvent, capable of leaching constituents away from other compounds and carrying them in itself. In this way water, and its cousins alcohol and vegetable oils, are able to be infused with the properties of healing herbs.

FDA seizes $71k in herbal tea products as campaign of censorship against nutritional supplements continues

Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
See article keywords and concepts
While the FDA will openly tolerate useless synthetic vitamins (which are mostly made by pharmaceutical companies anyway), the rogue agency will not tolerate herbal products that actually work to cure cancer, halt diabetes, reverse heart disease or otherwise strip revenues from Big Pharma by eliminating disease. Personally, I hope you support this company just to spite the FDA. You can learn more about their bitter melon product at www.charanteausa.com Bitter melon really works to help regulate blood sugar. In my view, it works better than diabetes drugs.
Censoring truthful health claims of nutritional supplements While the FDA claims it raided the Charantea company in order to protect consumers from mislabeled products, the truth is that the agency -- which operates a criminal prescription drug racket that should be prosecuted under organized crime laws -- is far more interested in protecting the market for pharmaceuticals. herbal tea products that effectively lower blood sugar are seen as competition for high-profit diabetes drugs.
The Food and Drug Administration has a long history of engaging in armed raids against nutritional supplement and herbal companies. Read these articles to learn more: The true history of FDA armed raids: http://www.newstarget.com/021791.html The FDA shuts down red yeast rice distributors: http://www.newstarget.com/022046.html See NewsTarget's 222 articles on the FDA: http://www.newstarget.com/list_features_the_FDA.
By terrorizing fruit growers, herbal tea companies and nutritional supplement manufacturers, the Food and Drug Administration continues to exercise iron-grip control over the printing of any information regarding the true medicinal applications of foods and plants. The FDA's censorship campaign is, by any measure, outrageously successful, and any company that dares to tell the truth about its own products is very much aware that they risk being put out of business by this rogue agency.
There's a revenue stream at stake here, and patients must remain diseased in order for Big Pharma to profit from them. Any herbal product that actually works will quickly find itself in the FDA's crosshairs, especially if it is described with honest, accurate language telling consumers the truth about what the product actually does. Garlic halts the growth of cancer tumors, but don't you dare say it on your web page, or the FDA will consider you a criminal and seize your garlic supplements. If you think this is criminal behavior on the part of the FDA, you are right!
The most effective way to protect the market for patented pharmaceuticals is to disrupt the business operations of those selling natural alternatives such as herbal teas, and that's exactly why this raid took place. From a scientific standpoint, there is absolutely no question that drinking bitter melon as a tea (or taking it as a supplement) helps regulate blood sugar. Cinnamon has a similar effect, as do many other herbs. These medicinal plants have been used for thousands of years to support human health.

Ten percent of any herbal formula usually consists of a stimulating herb that will help transport the benefit of the other herbs to where it is needed. Some examples of stimulating carriers are angelica, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger. • It may help to determine the main organ that needs help (for example, the skin) and then add herbs to support three systems that affect that organ (for example, the lungs, liver, and large intestine). • Study the physiology of the health concern you want to address. Understand its energy, and understand the energy of the person experiencing the health concern.

You see, that's why the benefit versus risk argument is never applied to herbal remedies. herbal remedies don't benefit pharmaceutical companies, so there's no reason for the FDA to go out of its way to keep them on the market. In fact, the availability of herbal remedies competes with prescription drugs. Consequently, the FDA, which is out there to protect Big Pharma, has every reason to outlaw herbal remedies. That alone will boost the sales of prescription drugs.
