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-anxiety, anti-cachexic, anti-dyscratic, antioxidant, antispasmodic, anti-stress, neuro-motor depressant, hypotensive, nervine, systemic relaxant, sedative, spasmolytic, stimulant (circulatory and secretolytic), tonic and tropho-restorative.



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 neuro-motor depressant and nerve sedative in order to reduce any hydrophobia (accompanied by stress and nervous tension), hysteria or other stressful conditions, and promotes calming effects in order to relieve any emotional disturbances (such as worry or anxiety); calms the nerves in those conditions involving neurasthenia (nervous exhaustion) accompanied by fatigue or over-excitement, and removes all exhaustive or depressive conditions (including both reactive and endogenous forms of depression); eliminates the stress and nervous depression associated with alcoholism, and removes any addictive tendencies in order to ease any problems involving the withdrawal symptoms associated with the excessive use of tobacco, drugs or alcohol; acts directly upon the cerebro-spinal centers in order to control any nervous prostration or irritability associated with alcohol or drug withdrawal, and relaxes the entire musculature in order to relieve any twitching sensations or other irritating withdrawal symptoms; removes any addictions to barbiturates or the excessive use of synthetic valium or meprobamate, and displays tropho-restorative and relaxant activity upon the nerve tissue in order to repair the debilitating effects of any longstanding continuous nervous over-activity caused by excessive substance abuse; acts directly upon the brain and central nervous system by encouraging the production of natural endorphins, which serve as tranquilizing opiates (due to the presence of the flavonoid scutellarine); eases any mental confusion by elevating the alpha waves that are generated by the brain, and restores greater control over any deranged sensory or motor functions; alleviates any nervousness accompanied by muscular or nervous excitability, and eases any restless or fitful sleep-states associated with the inability to control the voluntary muscles; displays cardiotonic activity in order to strengthen the heart muscle, and stimulates the brain, spinal cord and sympathetic nervous system; soothes and tonifies the entire nervous system, and regenerates the central nervous system (cerebro-spinal centers); promotes greater mental clarity and increased emotional detachment, and imparts greater quietness and inner strength 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; 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.
