The Whole-Body System-of-Systems

This holistic product treats the body as a complete system (of smaller systems). These smaller systems are interactive, and together produce an effect that is different from the effect of each individual system on its own. The combined behavior of this whole-body persists over time and normally becomes very dependable. The least obvious part of the system, its function or purpose, is often the most crucial determinant of the system's behavior and our health.

The Cardiovascular System

Includes the heart, the blood vessels, and properties of the blood. Plants containing cardiac glycosides are throughout the world to treat heart failure and certain cases of cardiac arrhythmia. In conditions like these, herbs can increase the strength and normalize the rate of the heartbeat. The real value of these herbal products lies in their ability to increase the efficiency of the heart without increasing the heart muscle's need for oxygen.

The Digestive System

Herbal medicine is uniquely suited for the treatment of digestive system illnesses. Throughout human evolution, our food has been our medicine, ensuring that the healing properties of the herbs we consume have a direct effect on the lining of the alimentary canal. Herbs affect digestive system function not only through absorption and metabolism of the whole range of plant chemicals, but also through direct actions upon the tissue of the gut.

The Endocrine System

The Endocrine System sometimes is mistakenly thought of in terms of endocrine hormones that carry signals throughout the organism, plant and animal. In fact, many plant hormones trigger human processes. Hormones either act on receptors on the plasma membranes of human target cells, or move into our cells to bind to intracellular receptors; in either case, the target cell is not a passive recipient of signals but rather has key roles in regulating hormonal responses.

The Epidermal System

The Epidermal or Integumentary System – the skin, hair, nails, sweat glands, and sebaceous glands. It fulfills a number of important functions. As the interface between the body’s internal structures and the environment, the skin serves as the protective coat for the body against mechanical injury and attack by bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites. Internal treatment of skin problems will often be relevant, but it may be appropriate to also apply herbs externally for local effects.

The Female Reproductive System

It should come as no surprise that nature is rich in plants that nurture the reproductive system or in some way address the process of conception and birth. However, today the phytotherapist is faced with an unfortunate 21st century dilemma. Some of the primary remedies for the female reproductive system, widely used be the Eclectic, Physiomedicalist, and Thomsonian herbalist of previous centuries, are now seriously endangered species. We caution against using them unless they are from cultivated sources which is the case of our products.

The Immune System

In recent years, the Immune System has become an increasingly critical area of focus in all branches of medicine. The various phytotherapeutic systems of the world have much to offer the holistic practitioner working with the human immune system. However, confusion and misinformation abound in the field. Much of the ‘phytoperplexity’ comes from ill-informed attempts to blend insights from different traditions without a clear grasp of the underlying principles.

The Male Reproductive System

The Male Reproductive System is more than the process of conception, yet the market is flooded with herbal claims that would cause you to think otherwise. Our male reproduction system products focus on the prevention of infections, stabilizing the hormonal response, and integrating with the Cardiovascular, Endocrine, Immune, Musculoskeletal, Nervous, Respiratory, and Urinary Systems.

Musculoskeletal System

Among all the problems that can affect this important body system, herbal medicine has the most to offer in the treatment of chronic, degenerative ailments. In most cases, successful herbal treatment of musculoskeletal illness will be based on supporting the whole body, because systemic factors so often lay the foundation for degenerative musculoskeletal conditions.

Image

The Nervous System

In no other system of the body is the connection between the physical and psychological aspects of our being as apparent as in the Nervous System. Clearly, the tissue of the nervous system is part of the physical make up of the body. However, just as clearly, all psychological processes are anchored in the nervous system. Therefore, if there is disease on the psychological level, it will be reflected on the physiological level, and vice versa.
Image

The Respiratory System

The lower Respiratory System consists of the respiratory zone, the alveoli, and bronchioles. The air-conducting bronchi and trachea are anatomically part of this system. The upper Respiratory System consists of the conducting zone, made up of the nose, sinuses, pharynx, and larynx. The system as a whole represents a major interface with the outside world and thus is a focus of much immune system activity.
Image

The Urinary System

The importance of the Urinary System cannot be overemphasized. The various physiological functions fulfilled by the kidneys and associated structures show how fundamental to bodily health and well-being they are. The maintenance of homeostasis is pivotal to any experience of wellness. With the variety of diuretics in our materia medica, the phytotherapist is uniquely endowed by nature with the means to support the complex physiology that maintains healthy kidneys and water balance in the body.
