Rhodiola rosea has been categorised as an adaptogen by Russian researchers due to its observed ability to increase resistance to a variety of chemical, biological, and physical stresses.
Research also indicates great utility in asthenia conditions (decline in work performance, sleep difficulties, poor appetite, irritability, hypertension, headaches, and fatigue) developing subsequent to intense physical or intellectual strain.
The adaptogenic, cardiopulmonary protective, and central nervous system activities of rhodiola rosea have been attributed primarily to its ability to influence levels and activity of monoamines and opioid peptides such as beta-endorphins.
Rhodiola is an effective anti-stress herb, if you’re feeling burned-out, tired or need a boost.
Catarrh and Sinus – Garlic
February 3, 2021by Jurgen
Allium Sativum aka Garlic.
USES: high cholesterol, respiratory tract infections, sinusitis and catarrh.
DESCRIPTION: Garlic is said to be the world’s oldest medicine and is still one of the best and most popular herbal remedies. Remains of garlic have been found in caves inhabited 10,000 years ago. A Sumerian clay tablet dating from 3,000 BC records the first garlic prescription.
HOW IT WORKS: It is now recognised that it is the ratio of the various types of cholesterol and fats in the blood, which is more relevant than the totals measured. Garlic reduces the level of low-density lipoproteins (LDL) whilst increasing the levels of high-density lipoproteins (HDL). It has been suggested that an increase in HDL may enhance the removal of cholesterol.
Garlic has also a mild action in lowering blood pressure and is well known for its antibiotic properties, which is very useful for sinus problems, catarrh and respiratory tract infections, like coughs and head colds. Garlic helps to improve the immune system.
Specially aged Kyolic Garlic extract is an organic and the only absolutely odourless form of Garlic. Aged for 20 months. Suitable for Vegans.

Quartz – Silicon dioxide
Silicea to maintain the beauty of healthy skin, hair and nails.
Silicea can be very helpful for arthritis as well as digestive disorders to treat symptoms like heartburn, reflux, and for irritable bowel (IBS) symptoms like nausea, flatulence, abdominal pain, bowel discomfort and diarrhoea.
Silicon is an essential trace element in the body. It is present in all organs and structures, but particularly in bones, skin, hair and nails.
In skin and bones, connective tissue acts like scaffolding to support the tissue structures. Silicon is an important component of this connective tissue.
Silicea is the result of combining silicon and oxygen in a colloidal solution. This state between solid and liquid, presents the body with molecules, which are easily absorbed.
Colloidal Silicic Acid (Silicea) is available in capsules and liquid form for human consumption and for food supplementation.
>Silicea as a homeopathic remedy is used for poor stamina, weakness, inflammation of glands, chronic discharges, uncharacteristic odour, sensitivity to senses, boils and abscesses, earaches, splinters, and inflamed eyelids.
