Get Alkaline & Feel More Alive

Alkaline foods protect, strengthen and fortify the human body, spirit and mind. Fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, spring water and herbs are super-alkalizing and are the facilitators of a healthy PH in the body; enabling self-awareness and the ability to make conscious lifestyle choices to further propel the body’s systems into a state of balance and equilibrium.

Getting to the Heart of the Matter: Noni

Getting to the heart of the matter. I walked into the Kauai Farmacy office & was pleasantly surprised to find one of our team members wearing a giant Noni leaf over her heart. When I asked why she was wearing the Noni leaf, she replied “Isn’t that what you guys do?” Doug & I laughed. It is what we do.

About nine years ago, we were fully immersed in experiencing this remarkable Polynesian Herb; brewing the leaves into tea; eating them; curing them, submerging in Noni bath water, and even wearing the leaves until they sweated the toxins from our bodies; helping to heal us on the surface level & more deeply connect us to the truth behind Nature’s medicine.

At that time, many people had shared their experiences with the plant’s pungent, stinky fruit counterpart; a popular Polynesian healer in its own right. However, it was the leaf that captivated us.

The Noni leaf is super circulatory, & is responsible for pumping more oxygen-rich blood to our vital organs; making it an excellent aid in strengthening our cardiovascular system, & enabling us to feel more alert & alive. The Noni leaf also contains ursolic acid, a compound that reduces inflammation; boosts metabolism and stimulates weight loss. It is becoming more widely known for its detoxifying & tumor-preventative properties, as it contains compounds that actively break up free radicals & blockages in the body that can lead to illness. It’s anti-fungal, anti-bacterial & bone-restorative abilities, are amongst its many healing characteristics.

We use the Noni leaf (aka Morinda Citrifolia), in our Puritea Cleanse Powder, Wellness Tea, & Vitalitea.

We are beyond grateful to the Noni plant for introducing us into the realm of self-healing & the power of plant medicine.

This is What Medicine Looks Like!

?TURMERIC (aka Olena) harvested fresh today. This is what medicine looks like! This golden cluster of turmeric was harvested for my dear friend and one of your medicine-makers, who took a surfboard to the shin.

Turmeric is an excellent anti-inflammatory, as well as an herb esteemed for clearing infection and cleansing open wounds. It is highly circulatory, a brilliant line of defense when it comes to cardiovascular health, and due to its high levels of the compound curcumin, it is excellent in breaking down free radicals that can lead to illness.

Turmeric can be consumed in teas, smoothies, culinary dishes and used topically. This herb may just be the most all-around medicine we have here on the farm.

Today, we will use the raw, cold-pressed juice of the Turmeric rhizome to apply liberally over the wound, as well as consume it internally.

This herb makes its way into almost every one of our teas. The blends that have a high percentage of Turmeric include our 100% TURMERIC powder, CACOA OLENA, CURRY spice blend, and VITALITEA.

Healing each other one plant at a time,

Turmeric: All-around Medicinal Herb

Kauai Farmacy Turmeric Powder, anyone? This may be the most potent turmeric powder commercially available anywhere. Turmeric, aka Olena in Hawaiian, is renown for its active compound, curcumin. Olena may be the most all-around medicinal herb we have here on the farm; specifically useful for boosting the immune system, reducing inflammation; increasing circulation; and strengthening the heart and liver.

Turmeric is an active ingredient in our: Cacao Olena, Love Potion, Puritea Clease Powder, Wellness, Women’s Wellness, and Vitalitea.


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.

Awaken and Alkalize

Ask yourself, is your morning fuel keeping you young, healthy & cognitively vibrant? After personally feeling the aftermath of years of adrenal fatigue from drinking roasted coffee, I have learned first-hand that alkalinity rules the day! I’ve since joined the alkalizing juice and herbal tea-drinking ranks, and it has become blatantly apparent to me that how we start our day, really does matter!

Kickstarting the day with alkaline foods & herbs like our Vitalitea tea or our Endurance powder sprinkled over morning meals/into smoothies, draws you to engage in healthier behaviors throughout the day. By transforming your morning ritual from one that is acidic & draining, to one that is alkalizing & awakening, you are choosing significant life-lasting changes that energize you, create mental clarity, return you to your youth & make you Feel More Alive! Moral of the story…WAKE UP & SMELL THE HERBAL TEA!
