Ed utilizes the Six Stages of Diseases, common to TCM and Homotoxicology, as well as the theory of Pleomorphism to his understanding of the progression of diseases and the return to health. Natural herbal medicine and homeopathy offers a well established proven avenue for common everyday disorders as well as serious maladies. They continue to be extremely safe and effective for new-born babies, children and seniors. Sports injuries have always been treated with natural medicine and herbs - only due to nefarious reasons, steroids and pharmaceuticals becoming prominent during the last decades.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, Diet and Life-style are critical to optimum health. Food is your medicine and your medicine your food. Simple care along with simply food is the best method to regain and maintain one's health.  We do not accept the Standard American Diet as endorsed by the American Medical Association or the American Food and Drug Administration as legitimate. The use of pesticides, antibiotics, growth hormones, chemical stabilizers, preservatives, food coloring and enhancers do not add value to our food - they subsidize privileged corporations who do not know how to farm and do threaten our children's health.

We offer viable health alternatives to harsh chemicals, synthetic drugs, and to synthetic "natural" herbs.  We believe that isolated, standardized, concentrated single components of a natural herb are drugs (phyto-pharmaceuticals).

Please consider simple whole food pro-biotics; Kombucha Tea, Kefir, Caspian Sea Yogurt, Viili, Tibicos and Japanese Water Crystals. We also offer other whole food recipes in our library that are all simple and easy to make at home.

Probiotics are Functional Foods. these foods, aid the Stomach to better digest food and assists the Spleen to deliver nutrition. aids the Liver to remove toxins and accumulations from the body. When your digestion and elimination are good your health is good. Probiotics aid the Heart and Calm the Spirit, so one may rest easily and think clearly. Probiotics open the Lungs so one breathes freely and regain lost energy. Diet (probiotics) and lifestyle is the simplest, easiest most economical way of restoring and maintaining your health.

We believe when intervention is necessary that your first choice of medical attention should be what will benefit the body most. Herbs and homeopathics offer a short-term intervention that very often work and work well. We do believe that western allopathic medicine is vital to health and may be absolutely necessary and should not be avoided. One must make an informed choice.

Our probiotics are alive and healthy. They will continue to grow, reproduce and prosper. in a true symbiotic relationship our bodies will continue to grow, reproduce and prosper. You will not only achieve good health yourself but be able to pass along these blessings to your family and friends.

Probiotics: Pro meaning in favor of and biotic means life. Probiotic means in favor of life. Antibiotic, means anti-life. the familiar western medicinal means just the opposite as probiotic. The entire rationale of allopathic medicine:  allo means opposite. Poison, burn or cut out the disease;  Homeopathic means Homeo = same. To heal the same as the body would heal.

Kombucha  = SCOBY: Serendipitous  Culture OF Bacteria and Yeast
Known around the world as a health drink  A few of the more common names for KOMBUCHA; Kombuchal, Gerbstoffe, Combucha, Kum-Cha, Fungus japonicas, Fungojapon, Indo-Japanese tea fungus, Pichia fermentans, Cembuya orientalis, Combuchu, Tschambucco, cembuya, Volga spring, Mo-Gu, Champignon de longue vie, Tea Kvas, Teakwass, Kwassan, Kargasok, Kocha kinoko, anywhere you go this Manchurian Mushroom tea gives a long and merry life. Kombucha Tea is a simply made with water, sugar, tea and the kombucha probiotic. The ancient Chinese referred to kombucha mushroom tea as the Elixir of Life. Today it is known more as a pre probiotic.

 

Specifically Kombucha mushroom tea is a pre probiotic in a real sense that the tea contains numerous beneficial bacteria, acids and yeasts that aid our bodies on a great many levels. I refer to it as a pre probiotic as kombucha is more transient and does not stay as long as the more robust probiotics like kefir, viil, tibi and Caspian Sea Yoghurts. These are simply made with fresh milk, fruit juice, or even water and sugar. No special equipment or cooking required.  Both my 4 year and 1 year old will drink these and even ask for them !

 

Kefir and kombucha are both known as the Tibetan Mushroom. probably due to the legendary health benefits that both these fermented foods produce.  Kombucha also spelled as Kombu-cha or translated to the Japanese as Kombu (seaweed) and Cha (tea) is commonly confused with the Japanese Water Crystals (Tibi) which itself is very similar to Kefir Grains. Japanese Water Grains are normally fermented in water (or juice) and sugar and kefir Grains in Milk. Kombucha is fermented in water, tea and sugar. Each offer a unique presentation to health and a tasty beverage, yet are distinct.  Western science does not agree on how these probiotics work, or even that they do work at all. It may be that they are each loaded with a host of beneficial nutrients or their particular acid / alkaline balancing abilities as espoused by western medical doctors like Dr Rudolph Sklenar or Dr Robert Barefoot. Or a deeper often misunderstood theories of homeopathy (Homotoxicology) and Traditional Chinese Medicine,  yin yang theory that predates western Acid Alkaline theory by thousands of years.  

 

As a pro biotic: Acidic kombucha, pH 2-3.5 aids the Stomach (both in the TCM and western sense) in the breakdown and digestion of food ingested.  Beneficial bacteria and yeasts, that comprise the Live K-T or Pressed Extract (as opposed to pasteurized, neutralized, alcoholic or dead kombucha) compete with and help remove (suppress) harmful bacteria, yeast, and parasites. (Probably why Candia sufferers can drink K-T). Then due to the synergism of the stomach acids and kombucha, the transformed alkaline kombucha pH 7+, aids the Spleen (function in TCM), intestines, gall bladder and pancreas (function in western speak) in metabolizing and distributing that digest throughout the body. Thus kombucha truly holistically balances and harmonizes the body.

 

The actual pH of the body changes. As researched recently by Dr Barefoot (Calcium Factor) and earlier by the Germans "Kombuchal"  see German Reichspatent 538 028 online in both the original German and an English translation offered by Harald Tietz and others. http://happyherbalist.com/german_kombucha_patent.htm 

 

In China Kombucha has been referred to as the "Elixir of Life" in the west it is commonly called a SCOBY: Symbiotic Culture OF Bacteria and Yeast. IMO, the symbiosis is not between the bacteria and yeasts but between the kombucha ferment and me.  This is one explanation why kombucha works for some and not for others. Kombucha simply makes your body healthier by enabling better assimilation of food, drink and thoughts.

According to scientist and author Robert Barefoot, Heart Disease, Diabetes, Arthritis, Cancer and 200 degenerative diseases have been linked to acidic body fluids. Robert Barefoot has recommended Coral Calcium with Kombucha Tea.  Coral Calcium Ultra helps prefect the alkaline pH balance and strengthen bone mass. Derived from the Okinawa Coral Reef, it is fortified with vitamin C, vitamin D, and Magnesium to bring you the most complete calcium mineral blend available today.
