Use Herbs to Heal and Regenerate

Hey. It’s Dan. I just wrote this and wanted you to read it. Let’s get cleaned up, alkalized, hydrated and regenerated.

Acids from processed foods, stress, consumer products, pharmaceuticals, tap water and polluted air equals pain, stiffness, inflammation, headaches, irritation and low energy. Acids are toxic to the blood ph and force the body to store them in your tissues to stay balanced. The body then holds onto water to protect itself from these cellular irritants. This is the underlying cause of excess weight, lack of mental clarity and disease. An overload of acids waste and metabolic debris. The most popular word for it these days is TOXINS!

To eliminate acids (toxins) you must use alkalizing elements which are concentrated in green plants as alkaline minerals. Teas work great as a medium to deliver alkaline minerals. The pure water used to brew the tea help to flush the now neutralized acids from the lymphatic system, liver, kidneys and all the bodies cells.

The freshest most potent herbs come from the Kauai Farmacy on the beautiful garden island of Kauai. These herbs are air dried, raw and very potent. You can use these herbs to detox your body, lose weight and heal from disease. Hydrate and alkalize your body daily with these herbs to neutralize the acids that result from our modern lifestyle.

My personal favorite is Love Potion mixed with Puritea in the morning for maximum cleansing of the toxins released during sleep and a few nights a week I’ll use Tranquility to unwind after along day. I’m making some Vitalitea right now. ?

Check out this behemoth Ashwagandha Root harvest! There is nothing in the world quite like Kauai-grown Ashwagandha Root. This plant is abundant in our gardens, & for this reason, we are increasing the ratio of Ashwagandha root in some of our favorite herbal blends: Love Potion tea; Endurance & Green Energy Superfood powder.

The Ashwagandha root is one of Doug’s favorite herbs for endurance & supporting longevity. Ashwagandha is synonymous with enhancing one’s life force or libido. In Sanskrit, the word Ashwagandha means “The Vigor of a Stallion”.

According to Vaidya Smith, a well-known practitioner of Ayurvedic medicine, “Ashwagandha is a well-known semen-promoter & treats both impotency & infertility, as well as increases penis size & strength…Although it is considered to be the primary aphrodisiac & tonic for men, it can be safely used by women for up to one year in cases of pregnancy, general debility, nervous debility & stress…Ashwagandha increases memory & learning capabilities…& rejuvenates nerve & brain tissues…it also has anti-arthritic effects, builds muscle & bone tissue & helps patients with degenerative disorders like HIV & Aids…Large doses of the root show protection from x-rays & other radiation”.

The Ashwagandha plant is a native Indian plant, known as “Indian ginseng” that works to strengthen, restore, & rejuvenate the immune system: reducing inflammation, promoting clarity, & creating an overall calming energy.

Studies have shown that Ashwagandha inhibits the growth of breast, lung, colon, & central nervous system cancers.

We are so grateful that the Kauai Farmacy gardens are abundant with this magnificent healing plant.

LOVE POTION tea: Tulsi, Yellow Ginger, Allspice, Cinnamon, Raw Cacao, Lemongrass, Turmeric, Gotu Kola, Ashwagandha, Stevia

ENDURANCE powder: Allspice, Ashwagandha, Cinnamon, Gotu Kola, Lemongrass, Raw Cacao, Tulsi, Turmeric, Yellow Ginger

This morning the miracle of rays of Hawai’ian sunshine kissed the misty rain over Kauai Farmacy’s front pasture.

This is the Ecosystem in which our herbs thrive, and why our plant medicine is exceptionally balanced. Here on the North Shore of Kauai, the air, light and water are in equilibrium. The land in which our herbs abound is situated between the mountain range and the clear waters of the Pacific Ocean, and is surrounded by the Kilauea Stream; a water passageway for the cascading waterfalls to exit to our ocean’s edge. The herbal plants drink up, breath in, and bath themselves in these living elements. When plants are cultivated in a balanced environment and touched by loving hands, they become that which surrounds and nourishes them. In turn, we then consume the vitamins and minerals that these plants offer, becoming that same air, light and water.

Like plants, we are a product of our environment and experiences. We thrive when our air, light and water are all in balance. When we integrate balanced herbs into our lifestyle, every aspect of our colorful lives shines just a little brighter. We begin to feel more alive. Our environment; our breath; our hydration; our nutrition; & our relationships all fall into synchronicity and rhythm, contributing to our overall well-being.

Herbs transfer their consciousness to our every cell; reawakening dormancy within our bodies; recapturing strength from within; and rejuvenating our own consciousness, so that we can make healthy choices and practice daily rituals that serve and nourish us.

From our Vitalitea to our Green Energy Superfood powder; from our land to your cups; from nature’s elements to the living collection of particles that we are; may we all enjoy the full spectrum of health and healthy lifestyle practices that integrate Kauai Farmacy herbs from the land of abundant rainbows.


Kauai Insights: Did you know that Kauai is home to daily rainbow sightings, based on its unique balance of sunshine and abundant rainfall? The center of Kauai is home to Mount Waialeale (meaning “overflowing water” in Hawai’ian), which receives an astounding 460” of rainfall on average each year, making it one of the wettest places on Earth. In the native Hawai’ian language, rainbows are known as Anuenue.

Moringa, Moringa, Moringa and MORE Moringa!

This is what Superfood looks like! Also known as the “Miracle Tree”, Moringa is packed with #protein #potassium #calcium #iron #magnesium and every essential amino acid we need to survive and thrive. The leaves, bark, flowers, fruit, seeds, and root have traditionally been used to make medicine. This plant has also been used throughout the world to combat malnutrition in poverty stricken areas.

This fresh Moringa harvest will make its way into the Kauai Farmacy solar dehydrators and soon become a nourishing component of our Women’s Wellness tea, and our Green Energy Superfood Powder

Plants Are Medicine

Remember the days of old school cartoons when Popeye the Sailor man ate his spinach, grew superhuman muscles, and out-strengthened his arch rival Bruno when he was up to no good? Popeye didn’t eat steak, nor did he eat pasta. He ate spinach.

Plants give us strength. They give us energy. They give us life.

If you want to feel more alive, the recipe is simple: Consume more plants. Kauai Farmacy grows over seventy medicinal herbs including Bele Spinach, the Polynesian Spinach that is high in iron, protein, Vitamin A and Vitamin C. This spinach makes its way into a variety of balanced, nutrient-rich, delicious herbal blends like Kauai Farmacy’s:

In the words of the squinty eyed Popeye himself:
“I’m strong to the finich, ‘cause I eats me Spinach, I’m Popeye the Sailor man” (toot, toot) – Popeye

Expanding our gardens is nothing short of creative mystique: Which seeds will flourish; which will wilt; which will strengthen with erect stature; which will bend seeking light and warmth from the golden rays above the garden canopy? We share and resonate with the genetic code and character of every plant when we sip in their herbal composition of uniquely diverse vitamins and minerals. Plant power fuels us on a cellular level; deeply conditioning our inner temples and strengthening our physical chemistry.

I learned not too long ago to question everything. With every question, another question so often needs to be asked; Where does this medicine grow; by whom is this medicine made; and has it been altered from its original, natural state…? Answer-less, I was drowning in a flood of more and more questions. Continuing to consume my medicine on blind faith, as a result of a lifetime of conditioning to do so, was no longer an option for me. To be made a believer, I needed to get to the root of it all, and find a trustworthy source; or better yet, create the source.

We reach a pinnacle of earthliness when we connect with the roots of our energy source; and tap into the divine aspects of the laws of nature. Take pride and comfort in knowing the hand that feeds you; Take peace in the candid intricacies of how your food and medicine is grown and prepared; your body will thrive; your mind will find content; and your holistic self will come into balance.

From seed to cup; from our hands to hearts around the globe; from mineral-rich volcanic Kaua’i soil to herbal concoctions that satiate the body’s hunger for ultimate nutrients, our intention is delivering profound truth: Nature’s truth. With transparency in every aspect of everything we do, we strive to deliver this truth to you without compromise; directly from the source. www.KauaiFarmacy.com
