TRADITIONAL & HISTORICAL USAGE:
A specific for weaknesses and congestion of the arteries, capillaries, veins, and the heart. Hypertension (high blood pressure), dizziness, poor circulation (especially in the mid- to lower body areas), myocardial infarction (heart attacks), angina (chest pains), all heart weaknesses, claudication of the extremities, varicose and spider veins (strengthens vascular walls), phlebitis, hemorrhoids, cramping of the legs (see Bones Formula), atherosclerosis and arteriosclerosis, platelet agitation, glaucoma, strokes, depression, elevated cholesterol, poor memory, graying of the hair, balding, fatigue, equilibrium issues, aneurysms, and mental disorders.
We also recommend the Artichoke & Stones Formula. Artichoke has been found to dissolve lipids and lipid stones within the body. This is excellent for cholesterol build-up within the vascular system, as well as gall-stones and liver-stones.
An acidic diet with weak adrenal glands are the two main causes of lipid and calcium formation within the body.
Always work on the Endocrine Glands (Adrenals) when dealing with vascular occlusions (blockages). You may also want to use a Lymphatic, Kidney, and Stomach & Bowel Formula to help remove the cause(s).
Use with the Brain & Nervous System Formula when working on spinal or any nerve regeneration.
