Blending Herbs for Greater Efficacy

For thousands of years, Chinese medical practitioners have used herbal remedies to correct imbalance and restore equilibrium in the body. However, the efficacy of these remedies is determined by combining herbs according to various principles and characteristics.

When herbs are blended correctly, they work synergistically to accomplish specific goals. 

Let’s look at inflammation as an example.

Chronic inflammation can wreak havoc on the body and result in disease. A build-up of toxins, too much acidity, and high blood pressure are known contributors to the body’s inflammatory response. Devil’s claw contains several active compounds that help improve this response. 

On its own, devil’s claw is an effective anti-inflammatory. But, when combined with meadowsweet, willow bark and hawthorn, as in our Free-Mover products, you end up with a more potent formula. This powerful blend treats the issue holistically by providing additional relief to underlying symptoms and causes. 

  • Meadowsweet reduces acidity and acts as a natural pain killer.
  • Hawthorn improves blood circulation and helps flush toxins out of the body, specifically the joints.
  • Willow bark helps relax muscles and blood vessels, relieves pain and reduces blood pressure.

Herbal remedies are gentle on the body and easily digested. And when correctly blended, they have powerful healing and restorative properties that deliver significant therapeutic results.
