My story 

I actually chanced upon this tea back in November 2018.  I had these spices left over from herbal formulas I had made and they were nearing their expiration.  I opted to make a tea for so I wouldn't waste the herbsand found that I just felt better!  My neck and shoulder pain reduced significantly and this was with the old herbs. I ordered newer fresher herbs and OMG! I never looked back. My neck and shoulder pain is gone. 

I ended up using this tea to rid myself of  my habitual daily coffee habit and managed to get out of Adrenal Fatigue, boosting my energy, mood and reducing anxiety from November 2018 - the present.

 

I can drive in rush hour traffic now without panicking and short tunnels again without freaking out or taking the 30 minute detour. Not to mention, my neck and shoulder aches and pains are gone. 

 

I drink it daily. I used to drink 3 Tablespoons with cream and honey but now only drink 2 Tablespoons no cream. I still use honey and I feel great!  I also now eat the 2 tablespoons of herbs that forms at the bottom of my cup and no longer even use my press.  I had to play around with the dosing to find my sweet point.

 

Feel free to experiment with your own best practice! and keep me posted.

Hear what others are saying

about their use and its results.

  • My 9 year old drinks about 1-2 teaspoons when she feels a sore throat coming on and it knocks it out. Sometimes we need to do 3-4 consecutive days others just one dose.

  • My coworker sent me a text last night noting that she increased her dose to 2 Tablespoons and had it with a soy based vanilla creamer. She said, "the pain I have on the left side of my body just disappeared."

  • It helped reduce allergy symptoms in a client I was working with who normally uses allegra D daily. Medication use was reduced. 

  • Another colleague added it to her weight loss regimen and reported losing 5 lbs in a week when she added it to her daily exercise and strict meal planning regimen. 

Final Thoughts 

I used this tea to get off of coffee and out of adrenal fatigue.  I have used it with clients who have had allergies, back and shoulder pain, arthritis, sore throats and poor circulation. During the School year I give it to my children as a prophylactic to support the immune system during the cold and flu season. 

Though the directions say use it in a French press, lately, I have been putting 2 Tbsp it in a 12 oz thermos filled with hot water and drinking the whole thing, sludge and all.  This sludge helps feed the good bacteria of the gut so drink up!

What will you use it for?

Traditional Chinese Herbal Formulas for ACUTE Viral Infection

$11.99

Xiao Chai Hu Tang

 

This Formula consists of seven herbs.

 

The chief Chinese herb, Chai Hu (Bupleurum) is an important herb for treating irritability due to Liver Qi stagnation. Chai Hu is cooling and soothes the Liver with an ascending action that prevents the pathogen from penetrating further into the interior. Here, Chai Hu is combined with Huang Qin (Scutellaria) which aids in draining heat from the Liver and Gall Bladder system and vents pathogenic influences. Together, these two herbs have a powerful calming effect.

Zhi Ban Xia (prepared Pinellia) and Sheng Jiang (Ginger) work together to harmonize the middle burner (Spleen/Stomach) by transforming phlegm, directing rebellious Qi downward, stopping nausea and improving appetite. Dang Shen (Codonopsis) is a powerful Qi and Blood tonic that assists in expelling pathogenic influences by restoring the body's own constitutional strength. Da Zao (Jujube) and Gan Cao (Licorice) harmonize the bitter properties of some of the other medicinals in the formula and also mildly assist Chai Hu.

Together, these seven herbs have a remarkable synergistic effect that can be applied to a wide range of clinical presentations.

Ingredients:

Radix Bupleuri Chinensis
Radix Scutellariae Baicalensis
Rhizoma Pinelliae Ternatae
Radix Codonopsis Pilosulae
Fructus Jujubae
Radix Glycyrrhizae Uralensis
Rhizoma Zingiberis Recens

Directions:

The standard dosage for Bupleuri Relaxe™ is 5 tablets each time, taken 2 to 3 times daily with or before meals.  One bottle lasts users 13 to 20 days.

 

The dose may be doubled for a quicker and stronger response as needed (e. g., in an acute phase). 

 

Bupleuri Relaxe™ has a mild action and therefore it usually takes time before its effects become apparent. It may take one month or more before symptoms begin to improve.

 

An initial course of treatment is suggested as 6 bottles taken at the full dose.
