“For every human illness, somewhere in the world there exists a plant which is the cure. I believe that there is a healing potential locked inside plants which is integral with their evolution, just as it is part of human evolution to learn to tap this wonderful gift of Nature.” - Rudolf Steiner
The idea of using plants and foods as medicine goes back many thousands of years and herbal medicine can be miraculous when you find exactly the right herb for the job at hand. However many of the herbal remedies that are sold over the counter may not just be useless for your condition, they may actually be harmful.
Don't rely on the woman in the aisle at Whole Foods, or your friend's multi-level marketing company or even an article in a magazine to tell you which herbs might be right for you. Instead come to a professional medical herbalist who knows whether your adrenal fatigue issues will be resolved with Rhodiola, Korean Ginseng, Rehmannia or Schisandra. You also need to know that the species of Echinacea you are buying is the one that has immune properties (Angustifolia or Purpurea) and that the herb extracted from the plant has been clinically tested to be sure it contains sufficient levels of the key active ingredient that you need to get that tingling sensation in your mouth!
All of the herbal products at ISIS are provided through MediHerb of Australia, a pharmaceutical grade GMP licensed herbal laboratory that uses a patented cold-extraction method for ensuring the vitality and medicinal activity of every single herb produced. They are the leaders in the world in clinical research, university educational standards for practitioners and supporting the environment by refusing to purchase endangered plants.
Terrifying Tonics by Dr. Karen Clickner, R.N.D.
For more than 30 years Dr. Clickner has been creating personalized blends of high-grade liquid herbals for her patients. She studied herbal medicine originally in Europe as part of her Naturopathic Certification training. Later, she expanded into Aromatherapy and then grew to appreciate the amazing power of plants through her friend Dr. Angela Hywood. Angela was an herbal whiz blending herbs instantly by memory that created incredible results in alleviating symptoms and conditions that plagued patients and sapped their daily energy and enthusiasm. It inspired Karen to reinvigorate her herbal knowledge and so she completed a two year Clinical Herbalism program under Dr. Kerry Bone of the Australian College of Phytotherapy.
After years of custom blending, Karen has produced her favorite blends under her company of Terrifying Tonics. These are available through our ISIS Shop by clicking here. For more information on the tonic blends that are available, click here.
Homeopathic medicine is one of the most effective and mysterious medicinal systems in the world. Begun in the 1700's by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, homeopathy offered an amazing non-toxic medicinal system that could even be given to infants. This system is based on the idea of using a natural medicine in a highly diluted form that produces in a healthy person the same symptoms experienced by the ill patient being treated. This was known as the Law of Similars, i.e. "likes shall be cured by likes".
The work and research of Dr. Hahnemann was further expanded by another German physician named Hans-Heinrich Reckeweg (1905-1985). He realized that we were creating many toxins in our environment and within our foods which would gradually create symptoms in a patient that were not related to a specific disease process. He found that by combining single homeopathic remedies, he would be able to broaden the scope of treatment and provide a "tonic" for the patient's overall health and body systems. This was an aspect of homeopathy known as Homotoxicology.
His research led to the creation of a chart of symptoms based on Homotoxicology which is now the foundation of our Meridian Stress Assessment test. The company that Dr. Reckeweg founded to provide his combination medicinals to physicians and patients became known as HEEL (an acronym of four Latin words: herba est ex luce or 'Plants come from light'). HEEL became the largest homeopathic provider in the world and still creates its formulas from Dr. Reckeweg's research in Germany today.
