2 oz microbatch organic Norwegian Angelica, a favorite of our clinical work. Spagyric extraction using traditional Swiss techniques and equipment. Spagyrics is a long extraction circulating herbs and taking the oils and calcinated minerals and recombining them in a gentle process. This makes them more bio-available, and “philosophical” in nature, as the harvest, timing and processing all take into account the precise moments of maximum medicinal use. For instance, if harvested in correct times the therapeutic properties are known to nearly double. This is the ancient wisdom that we use as our initiatory explorations of the herbal kingdom, and part of the proactive use of herbs for radiant heath. The tweak of lifestyles, diet, the moving of blood, of intermittent fasting, the resetting of the psychology and catalyst to spirit of rituals and herbs are the products of thousands of years of ancestral observations that are the true wisdom. Modern medicine is great for acute crisis, but dismal on chronic issues, with the side effects often worse than the original issue. Otherwise you have symptom suppression. These tonic herbs are best taking in microdoses over long periods, especially after a large initial dose for a few weeks. This gives a boost and maintenance dose that balances the organ and adrenal functions. Remember these issues did not start over night, but are the product of stress, oxidative stress from real physiological and psychological stresses, to pollution, lifestyle, etc in the perfect storm of disrupting normal bodily processes, which result in chronic diseases. We object to the term alternative medicine, as this is the safe ancestral herbalism that modern science has proven in many cases to be trustworthy and efficacious.
