I Love This Herb For Women And Men ~


Ah, yes… Damiana.  This is a leaf I love and recommend for All.  Damiana herb was first introduced in the USA in 1874, and has a long history of use in the folk medicine.  Scientifically called ‘Turnera diffusa, T. aphrodisiaca’, Damiana is known world-wide as a tonic that lifts one’s mood, enhances vitality, and is known to have aphrodisiac qualities that stimulate libido, for sexual health in general, and for increasing sex drive and sexual desire in Women and Men, including supporting sexual performance and sexual energy.

The part used is the leaf.  It is also known as a diuretic, for its hypoglycemic properties, its antibacterial properties; is widely used as a nerve tonic as it helps with nervous exhaustion so one can cope with stresses better; a mild natural antidepressant for mild depression.


Ancient Mayas and Aztecs used Damiana as a general tonic to improve health condition. When used on a regular basis, Damiana will help to improve mental stamina and mood. As a sexual tonic, it is a gentle acting remedy that can be taken safely always to enhance libido because it supports the glandular system.

It is interesting to note, however, that boosting sexual desire is not the only property of Damiana.  Native tribes also are known to use it to treat constipation and digestive problems, as well as gastric ulcers, menstrual irregularities, and bed-wetting in children and adults.  Damiana is a precious medicinal plant that I believe all can benefit from. ~

I recommend Damiana in a single herb formula, or have made sure it is a key ingredient in certain herbal formulas I recommend to patients and clients. Click the link below to obtain this exquisite herb and for more information:

Gallstones: Can You Digest Cleanly?

Newly updated September 19, 2016.

Our gallbladder helps us digest fats by producing bile.  Eating an excess of fatty and fried foods causes bile fluids to become saturated with cholesterol, the cholesterol converts into solid crystals, then accumulates into the ever common gallstones.  The pain at times is so severe it feels like a heart attack in progress. Over 20 million Americans have gallstones.  The option of recommending surgical removal of the gallbladder is common, but there is a price.  The liver suffers when there is a removal of its ‘best friend’ the gallbladder, and in turn also becomes overloaded.

The three main reasons why we are not digesting cleanly are:

1-food allergies (because they affect our ability to digest),

2-parasite infections (they lead to calcium composition stones),

3-lack of exercise (causes digestive activity to become sluggish).

Holistic medicine teaches that the emotion that effects the gallbladder is unresolved Anger. Gallstones do not develop overnight… Gallstones take time to develop, and so this tells us they are associated with an ‘accumulation’ and ‘buildup’ of Anger over an extended period of time. Apart from the three main reasons mentioned above which are known to be the main causes of gallstones, holding on to unresolved anger weakens the gallbladder making its function sluggish. Look within yourself if you suffer with this challenge. Work to overcome these negative thought feeling-emotions, let go, and take steps to feed your body what it is missing to begin a healing process.

To help the body expel gallstones safely, almost painlessly, and help balance emotions with chinese medicine, use the following natural therapy program I have recommended with outstanding results to patients and clients for over 21 years:




Use this program for at least 30-60 days. You will have 2-3 mild bowel movements per day and will notice dark green stones or black stones eliminated in the stool.

Eliminate the following from your diet: pork, red meat, chicken, turkey, carbonated beverages, coffee, ice teas, and chocolate.  Reduce sugars and white refined flours.

Enjoy a cleaner digestive system. Enjoy life as a healthier You, emotionally, and physically. ~
