The beauty of homeobotanicals
A new delivery of Homeobotanicals arrived this week!
I’ve been using these wonderful botanical plant remedies for over four years, and I wouldn’t be without them.
Homeobotanicals are organically grown, homeopathically prepared herbs.
They were first developed and extensively tested by a team of Homeopaths in Auckland, New Zealand. [Link]
Homeobotanicals are liquid remedies, diluted with a small amount of alcohol (or vegetable glycerine) as preservative.
The drops taste pleasant and are taken three to five times daily.
Each bottle lasts for a month.
They gently detoxify, energise, balance and calm.
Everyone loves them, including me!
Here are a few of my favourite blends.
HB Immune is a proven immuno-stimulant tonic.
Ingredients: Astralagus, Baptisia, Echinacea, Golden Seal, Licorice, Olive Leaf, Red Sage, and Thyme.
Immune enhances the production of lymphocytes and stimulates T-cell activity and can be used internally and externally whenever antiseptic and antimicrobial treatment is needed.
HB Female addresses menstrual irregularities and the effects of hormonal treatment.
Ingredients: Black Cohosh, Blue Cohosh, Chaste Tree, Cramp Bark, Licorice, Motherwort, Pasque Flower, Shepherds Purse, Squaw Vine and Wild Yam
Homeobotanical Female supports the endocrine system and balances periods. Herbs are traditionally used to relieve menstrual and premenstrual symptoms, including pain. It is gently restorative and balancing after miscarriage. [Related post]
HB Female + is especially suitable for symptoms of peri-menopause.
It contains the same herbs as the Female blend, with the addition of Peony.
Peony acts on the balance between the pituitary gland, the hypothalamus and the ovaries and helps the whole range of female hormones. [Link to pharmacology]
When treating women with perimenopause symptoms such as hot flushes and mood swings, I make a personalised blend that includes Female + along with support for the liver and adrenals.
HB Zest is a gentle restorative for emotional and adrenal exhaustion due to stress.
Ingredients: Cayenne, Damiana, Ginger, Kola Nut, Korean Ginseng, Licorice, Ashwaganda
Zest rejuvenates the whole body, including digestion, circulation, hormones, stamina, memory and libido.
I love to include Zest as a general tonic as it has the best botanicals for re-energising tired people!
HB Gastro-intestinal supports liver, bowel and colon function, by promoting daily bowel movements and general detoxification.
Ingredients: Buckthorn, Butternut, Cascara, Dandelion, Licorice, Rhubard, Senna
Gut health is essential. If the bowels don’t move every day, that’s a cause for concern. Your bowels should be moving at least once a day, but ideally after every meal.
Gastro-intestinal is my go-to blend to give gentle relief for constipation as it restores normal digestive processes. I also recommend lots of fresh and raw vegetables for good nutrition, and also to increase fibre.
Homeobotanicals for balance
Homeobotanicals are a valuable support during homeopathy treatment.
I use almost fifty blends altogether.
These are just a few of my favourites.
I select and combine up to five formulas in each prescription.
I always work holistically which means that your blend is unique for you.
