Sometimes herbs work better in combination of three –
Dandy-Thistle Compound – This classic combination is a tonic and restorative for the liver and gall bladder. We use whole plant dandelion and milk thistle seed for this compound, at the strength indicated under the Lyme disease and liver support listings. Dandelion whole plant (Taraxacum officinale), Milk Thistle seed (Silybum marianum).

Milk Thistle flower – the seeds are used for tincture

 

Hawthorn-Motherwort Tincture – This compound is a cardiac tonic and restorative, useful for strengthening the connective tissue of the blood and lymph vessels and the heart structure, and to enhance normal heart rhythm. Not a specific remedy but rather an adaptogen (balancing agent) for the entire circulatory system. Hawthorn-Motherwort is also an excellent tonic for menopausal symptoms such as racing heart and hot flashes.

Cordyceps, Rhodiola & Astragalus Compound – Used to reduce auto-immune response and assist immune function. Aids in transport of viral material to lymph, encourages the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate or “energy currency”). Modulates cytokine cascade in cases of overactive immune response. Cordyceps (C. sinensis), Rhodiola (R. rosea), Astragalus (A. membranaceous).
