How the tinctures are made

 

All our Tictures are organic, either foraged by myself or sustainably sourced.

The Mushroom Tinctures are double extracted and then recombined to get both the Alcohol soluble and water soluble benefits made bio available to the human body.

The herbal and Tree tinctures are made in the traditional way of alcohol extraction only unless otherwise called for.

All tinctures have been carefully, vibrational programmed. Firstly on my Shamanic Altar then  they rest for 7 days in a 300yr old Oak tree until the full moon when they are brought home.

Each Tincture has at least 1 Gene Key vibrationally programmed to it.

The programming to the Gene Keys assists the healing process on the physical level by supporting the Emotional, Mental and Spiritual releasing of old obsolete Patterns.

The fungus' ORAC value differs slightly but is on average higher than 100,000, even if values ​​up to 360,000 have been found. If we compare with other foods with high ORAC values, we see that it has a higher concentration of antioxidants than, for example, acai berries, blueberries or parsley.

This imbalance has also been linked to an increased risk of developing hygiene requirements, such as certain cancers and heart disease.

Turkey tail contains an impressive collection of antioxidants, including phenols and flavonoids.

In fact, a study of 35 different phenolic compounds was detected in a sample of turkey tail fungal extract, along with flavonoid antioxidants quercetin and baikalin.

Phenol and flavonoid antioxidants promote immune system health by reducing inflammation and stimulating the release of protective compounds.

Research has shown that turkey tail fungus may have antitumor properties, which are believed to be related to its immune system effects.

A test tube study found that PSK, the polysaccharopeptide found in turkey tail fungi, inhibited the growth and spread of human colon cancer cells.

What's more, a certain type of polysaccharide found in turkey tail fungus called Coriolus versicolor glucan (CVG) can suppress certain tumors.

However, the most impressive evidence regarding cancer benefits from turkey tail fungus when used in combination with more traditional treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiation (15, 16,).

The study showed that people with breast cancer, stomach cancer or colorectal cancer treated with turkey tail and chemotherapy experienced a 5-year reduction in 5-year mortality compared with chemotherapy alone.

Another review of 8 studies in over 8000 people with stomach cancer showed that those who received chemotherapy with PSK lived longer after the operation than individuals given chemotherapy without PSK.

A study of 11 women with breast cancer found that those who received 6-9 grams of turkey tail powder per day after radiation therapy experienced an increase in cancer-fighting cells in the immune system, such as natural killer cells and lymphocytes.

Maintaining a healthy balance of beneficial bacteria in the gut is crucial to maintaining a strong immune system. Your gut bacteria interact with immune cells and directly affect your immune response. Turkey tail contains prebiotics, which help nourish these beneficial bacteria.

An 8-week study of 24 healthy people found that consuming 3600 mg of PSP extracted from Turkey tail fungus per day led to positive changes in intestinal bacteria and suppressed the growth of potentially problematic E. coli and Shigella bacteria (Link to Pub.Med 3)

 

A test tube study found that turkey tail extract modified gut bacteria composition by increasing populations of beneficial bacteria such as Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus while reducing potentially harmful bacteria, such as Clostridium and Staphylococcus (Link Pub.Med 4.)

 

With healthy levels of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium bacteria have been linked to improved intestinal symptoms such as diarrhea, strengthened immune system, reduced cholesterol levels, lower risk of certain cancers and improved digestion.

Cordyceps - Balances the body's organs, as well as ying and yang

The most important property of Cordyceps is that it strengthens both the lungs and the kidneys, both yin and yang, which is very positive and important for all organs of the body according to TCM. Cordyceps is the foremost yang-strengthening herb that we have access to here in the western world, here is a bullet point on houses cordyceps can help - according to TCM.

 

- Chronic fatigue, according to TCM, the lung is one of the five organs that "control" the body, it controls energy and air and oxygen then plays a very big role. Because Cordyceps strengthens the lung, it helps in better oxygen uptake and use of oxygen and it leads to less fatigue. Cordyceps also helps against fatigue that can occur after a tick bite with Borrelia as a result.

- Asthma, as Cordyceps has a bronchodilator effect, and reduces the narrowing of the trachea that asthma entails. Also strengthens the kidneys, which are considered important for proper breathing.

- Impotence, the testicles are referred to as the small kidneys within TCM and the sexual desire and reproductive ability are mainly reproduced to the kidneys. Cordyceps is used for impotence and low sexual desire. Studies have shown increased sperm count and sex drive after using cordyceps.

 

- Anemia, it has long been explained in TCM that the kidneys supply the bones and marrow, and that the kidneys are important in the formation of blood. Which even Western medicine today knows. Cordyceps "strengthens the marrow" and the fungus has been used in the treatment of anemia, sometimes in combination with other herbs. It can be used in the treatment of anemia due to kidney failure. In Western medicine, it is known that impaired renal function can reduce the secretion of erythropoietin, which is a hormone that increases the production of red blood cells in the bone marrow. This may be an explanation for why Cordyceps can increase endurance, aerobic capacity, especially in athletes.

- Reduces oxidative stress by eliminating free radicals and you get an increased ATP, which is the cell's energy, but also a more efficient use of oxygen, which increases the aerobic capacity. This explains why Cordyceps has become a popular dietary supplement for athletes.

 

- Strengthens the immune system through increased phagocytosis, increased activity of macrophages and B lymphocytes, and a normalization of antibodies such as IgM and IgG. Studies have shown that cordyceps has an effect and can strengthen an immune system that is weakened while the effect on a normal immune system is small.

 

- Cholesterol normalizing by cordyceps reduces the oxidation of fats in the body.

 

- Improved renal function in conditions such as chronic nephritis (nephritis) and in renal insufficiency.

 

- Detoxifying effect, as cordyceps helps both the kidneys and the liver to metabolize and excrete toxic substances.

 

- Stimulates good hearing and can help with tinnitus if the problems are due to fluid in the middle ear, but not if the cause is in the auditory nerve. TCM says that "the kidneys open in the ears", which means that the kidneys supply the hearing.

 

- Cordyceps can provide greater resistance to cold and thus help you freeze less. It is explained that the body must have a regulated temperature so that diseases do not occur. There must be a balance between heat which is yang and cold which is yin and it is the kidneys that are responsible for this regulation. With yang deficiency, you can get frozen and in addition to the unpleasantness of freezing, this can more easily lead to problems such as colds and joint problems. As cordyceps strengthens the yang of the kidneys, the resistance to cold can be improved.

 

- Cordyceps have been shown in studies to reduce pulmonary edema, heart failure and arrhythmias.

 

- May improve chronic liver disease such as hepatitis
