The following is excerpted from The Professional's Herbal Formula Handbook No. 3, comprising 62 pages of traditional information and recent scientific data that describes the medical properties, physiological action and therapeutic uses for each of the 24 ingredients outlined in this formula.


Adaptogenic, alterative, anabolic, anti-cachexic, anti-dyscratic, anti-fatigue, anti-hepatotoxic, antioxidant, depurative, detoxicant, diuretic, immuno-potentiating, immuno-stimulant, mild laxative, nutritive, rejuvenative, restorative, stimulant (circulatory and secretolytic), tonic and vasotonic.



Alleviates any general fluids dyscrasia (abnormal or pathological condition) within the blood vessels, tissue-systems or mucous membranes that leads to various degenerative conditions associated with any addictive tendencies towards alcohol, caffeine, chemicals, drugs or food, and eliminates any form of cachexia (state of malnourishment and general debility) within the blood vessels, tissue-systems or mucous membranes throughout the entire organism in order to provide increased protection against any nutritional deficiencies or insufficiency associated with the excessive use of synthetic chemicals, recreational drugs or alcoholic beverages; relieves the various withdrawal symptoms associated with substance abuse problems, and removes any chronic fatigue or exhaustion associated with various degenerative conditions by promoting increased stamina and greater vitality throughout the entire organism; possesses triterpenes of the oleanane type (including glycyrrhizin (glycyrrhizic or glycyrrhizinic acid) and its agyleone glycyrrhetinic acid (glycyrrhitic acid), liquiritic acid glycyrrhetol, glabrolide, isoglabrolide, licoric acid and phytosterols), which are metabolized into molecules that are similar in chemical structure to the corticosteroids (desoxycortico-sterone) released by the adrenal glands; induces the adrenal cortex to produce larger amounts of natural cortisone and aldosterone, and relieves any adrenal exhaustion associated with excessive substance abuse or addictive conditions; strengthens, invigorates and revitalizes the liver, pancreas, spleen and adrenal glands, while strengthening the functional capabilities of the entire glandular system; exhibits immuno-potentiating and immuno-stimulatory effects in order to enhance greater long-term immune potential and overall non-specific systemic immunity (or immune cell activity) and increased immune response (by activating the body's natural defense mechanisms), particularly in relation to the repair and restoration of any damaged or congested blood vessels, tissue-systems or mucous membranes throughout the entire organism; increases the production of white blood cells, and enhances greater antibody development through the production of interleukin (due to the presence of the triterpene glycyrrhizin); displays immuno-stimulatory effects (due to the presence of glycyrrhizin) in order to induce the formation of interferon-like compounds, and inhibits the development of any liver damage produced by toxic chemicals or drug residues (due to the presence of glycyrrhizin); exhibits extremely beneficial effects upon the nervous and respiratory systems, while reducing any addictive symptoms associated with habitual smoking; displays greater protective and detoxifying properties upon the liver cells, and strengthens the entire circulatory system; exhibits anabolic activity in order to accelerate the production of DNA and RNA (which enhances the production of proteins in the form of antibodies), while increasing protein and lipid synthesis in the bone marrow and DNA/RNA content in the adrenals and lymph nodes (along with increased body weight and enhanced re-synthesis of glycogen and high-energy phosphate compounds); demonstrates powerful adaptogenic (balancing and strengthening) activity upon the endocrine glands, immune system, and both the central and peripheral nervous systems, thereby increasing non-specific resistance towards any adverse influences or stressful conditions associated with the excessive abuse of various addictive substances (such as alcohol, caffeine, synthetic drugs, narcotics and other toxic chemicals); acts as a secretolytic stimulant in order to promote increased gastric, pancreatic or intestinal secretory and motor activity, and enhances greater peripheral circulation (due to its antioxidant activity); exhibits significant antioxidant effects in order to provide greater oxygen-transport capabilities throughout the bloodstream, as well as enhance the transport of additional oxygen directly into the cells and tissue-systems throughout the entire organism; acts as a circulatory stimulant by increasing the blood flows through the arteries and blood vessels in order to enhance greater nutrient transport, absorption and utilization, thereby accelerating the healing processes associated with the repair of any damaged mucous membranes or tissue-systems; acts as an effective nutritive and rejuvenative tonic during convalescence (due to the presence of rich sources of calcium, carbohydrates, chromium, iron, magnesium, manganese, niacin, potassium, protein, silicon, sodium, and vitamins B1, B12 and C) in order to enrich, nourish and replenish any nutritional deficiencies or insufficiency within the cells or tissues throughout the blood cells, tissue-systems or mucous membranes, which leads to the development of various degenerative conditions associated with addictive behavioral patterns or substance abuse problems; demonstrates significant rejuvenative and restorative properties upon the basic plasma tissue-systems throughout the entire organism, thereby enhancing the production of vital bodily fluids while providing greater enrichment through increased assimilation of the various organic mineral salts; accelerates the recuperative processes that are essential in order to overcome any chronic debilitating or degenerative diseases or illnesses, while facilitating greater recovery response during convalescence in order to regain optimal health and well-being; activates the bodily processes of detoxification and elimination, and increases both sensible and insensible perspiration in order to more effectively enhance the eliminative capabilities of the body; acts as an eliminative vasotonic to the blood, liver and splenic functions, as well as upon the eliminative functions of the lymphatic system; enhances the overall cleansing process by dilating the surface capillaries in order to more effectively remove any toxic debris or chemical residues through the pores of the skin, and increases the secretion and elimination of urine in order to provide further support to the inner cleansing process; displays alterative activity in order to correct any disordered bodily function, thereby activating increased alterations in both metabolic and tissue functions as a defensive measure against the onset of acute or chronic disease; exhibits restorative effects in order to regain increased vigor or vitality and greater strength, while enhancing normal tissue and metabolic functional capabilities; demonstrates alterative and restorative properties in order to re-establish healthy systemic functional capabilities, as well as to establish greater vascular tone throughout the entire organism (due to its ability to stimulate increased secretory flows); exhibits alterative effects in order to stimulate the anabolic growth processes, thereby enhancing the repair of any degenerated, deteriorated and debilitated cells or tissues (while promoting the elimination of any catabolic waste materials); displays tonifying effects in order to permanently enhance the overall energy-levels throughout the entire organism, without adversely affecting the functional capabilities of any particular organ or system.
