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, mild analgesic, anti-cachexic, anti-depressant, anti-dyscratic, anti-fatigue, antioxidant, cephalic, depurative, detoxicant, diaphoretic, immuno-potentiating, immuno-stimulant, nervine, nutritive, rejuvenative, restorative, mild sedative, stimulant (cerebral, circulatory and secretolytic), stomachic, thymoleptic, tonic and tranquilizer.



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; acts as a stomachic tonic and replacement for various alcoholic stimulants during any conditions involving atonic dyspepsia, especially when accompanied by dipsomania; relieves any functional nervous disorders, nervousness, hysteria, and nervous depression or exhaustion, as well as any depressive states accompanied by general debility (due to an impaired constitution or various debilitated conditions); reduces any chronic fatigue or exhaustion associated with various degenerative or debilitative conditions, due to addictive behavioral patterns or substance abuse problems; removes any circulatory weakness following various stressful conditions, and displays mild sedative effects (due to the presence of borneol and bornyl acetate); displays significant antioxidant effects in order to enhance the transport of additional oxygen directly into the cells and tissue-systems throughout the entire organism, and removes various physical or mental imbalances associated with substance abuse problems (including physical or mental fatigue, general weakness, mental confusion or strain, memory loss, and mental stupor or complacency); reduces the withdrawal symptoms associated with excessive addictions or dependencies, such as nerve irritation or nervous irritability, hypotension, restlessness, insomnia and psychogenic tension; 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; 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; promotes a tranquilizing effect upon any frayed nerves, due to the presence of high levels of magnesium; acts as an effective nutritive and rejuvenative tonic during convalescence (due to the presence of rich sources of calcium, fats, iron, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, protein, sodium, zinc, and vitamins A, B1, B2 and C) in order to enrich, nourish and replenish any nutritional deficiencies or insufficiency within the cells or tissues throughout the 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 (while providing greater systemic nutritional enhancement) throughout the entire organism, thereby increasing 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 degenerative or debilitative conditions, while facilitating greater recovery response during convalescence in order to fully regain optimal health and well-being; activates the bodily processes of detoxification and elimination in order to cleanse and purify the bloodstream and tissue-systems, and increases both sensible and insensible perspiration in order to more effectively enhance the eliminative capabilities of the body; 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.
