100% Herbal & Homeopathic Ingredients
- Carduus marianus (Milk Thistle) is regarded as one of the most important herbal liver tonics and restoratives. Medical use of Milk Thistle may be traced back more than 2000 years. More recently, Milk Thistle has been subject to many clinical trials which clearly demonstrate its effectiveness. Scientific analysis of Milk Thistle shows that it contains a flavonoid complex called silymarin, which is largely responsible for the medical benefits of this herb. Silymarin is a powerful anti-oxidant and can block the entrance of toxins into the liver and remove toxins at the cellular level, thereby resulting in regeneration of liver cells and improved liver functioning. This would have a direct impact on overall systemic health as the liver is one of the most important organs in the body and is often affected by Lyme Disease which leads to further weakening of the system
- Crotalus hor. (C200) is a proven homeopathic remedy which is very effective for the treatment of any illness that includes hemorrhage as well as severe septic infections, especially when there is a breakdown of red blood cells (leading to severe strain on the liver and possible jaundice.)
- China (C6) is a homeopathic remedy well known for its beneficial effect on fever and exhaustion, especially following illness or severe fluid loss. It is also a very effective remedy for malaria.
- Ferrum Phosphate C6 (Ferrum Phos.) is one of the most important biochemic tissue salts to use when there is any infection or inflammation in the body. It helps to distribute iron and oxygen throughout the body, strengthen cell walls and fight infection.
