If you have any heart condition, it does not matter what it is… Heart Disease, Arrhythmias, Hypertension, Arteriosclerosis, Buerger’s Disease… the single most important herb that can support your heart is Hawthorn. It is so good that in traditional German medicine it is called the nurse of the elderly heart.
Now I grew up in St. John’s Newfoundland which is the oldest city in North America and in our traditional Gaelic culture there is a lot of lore associated with Hawthorn, it is known for its healing qualities but also its association with Fairies, yes it seems that fairies really like to hang out in Hawthorn trees, in fact it is considered bad luck to cut a Hawthorn branch unless the tree is in bloom. It is also reported that Hawthorn makes the best stake for killing Vampires… but I have not been able to confirm this.
Ok so now back to why Hawthorn is so powerful in all heart conditions, it has 3 unique properties,
✅ It lowers the heart muscles requirement for oxygen… So think about this it can be very useful for high altitude athletes, just saying…
✅ but another interesting thing is that Hawthorn has been shown to promote revascularization of the heart muscle in animal studies (are we animals? FDA says no)
✅ Also it’s can inhibit ACE enzyme (angiotensin converting enzyme) which relaxes the veins and arteries.
So the protocol is really simple, like I said all my heart patients go on Hawthorn… does not matter what the diagnosis is, it just works that good, we do 2 tablets 2 times a day for the first 2-4 weeks then we just cut the dose in half for long term chronic maintenance so 1 tablet 2 times a day.
The best extract of Hawthorn available is produced by Mediherb, and that is a 4.8:1 extract of leaf and flower. It is only by extracting the entire plant that you get the most powerful medicine.
Also most of the patients with heart conditions also have high cholesterol, for me that means over 200 and for them I will also recommend Garlic, take 2 a day and after an initial few weeks you can reduce it to once a day. Nothing drops blood lipids like Garlic. I have an entire Video on Garlic you can check out (especially useful if you have a lot of vampires in your neighborhood like I do do). The Mediherb Garlic Forte has a 12:1 extract ratio or Standard Process has an organic Garlic that also is perfect.
The other magic supplement I like to offer my cardiac patients is Valerian Complex, yes this is the go product for sleep and anxiety but it does wonders for hypertension and I find it really helps many of my heart patients. In many cases it helps the patient learn how to relax by letting them feel what relaxation should feel like… so I will have them take it at night an hour before bed and they can experience that. Then during the day they can also take . it as needed if they are feeling stressed out. So this is an as needed sort of supplement. The Valerian Complex has 5:1 Valerian extract, Passion Flower 5:1 and Jujube Seed 10:1.
Also make sure you check out my videos on Heart Rate Variability training, Exercise and Diet to complete your heart health routine.
EYE PROBLEMS | FLOATERS
Welcome back, this is an exciting video for anyone who is suffering from eye problems like computer eye strain or poor vision and also more complex eye problems like diabetic retinopathy, cataracts and glaucoma. I am going to show you how to use Bilberry, Ginkgo, this funny picture and this kinky mask to greatly improve your eye health without resorting to drugs or surgeries. Most eye conditions are degenerative in nature and share a common mechanism of disease. You may have noticed something called floaters, air bubbles floating across your field of vision. These are small pieces of membrane tissues that have broken off the back of the eye. Also many people will get quick flashes of light in the corners of their vision which is the result of tearing of that membrane. Small dark spots in the vision is likely blood which has pooled from these Injuries. It can be scary to experience these things but luckily you can help prevent future eye degeneration and repair existing damage with these simple recommendations. The focus here is improving the health of the eye and not just targeting your symptoms.
I read that in the second world war pilots in the British Air Force were given Bilberry jam in efforts to improve their night vision. A Bilberry looks like a big Blueberry but it is red inside instead of white. The Bilberry has an active flavonoid called ANTHRO-cyan-osides that is responsible for most of its benefits.
✅ Bilberry has been shown to have a positive effect on stabilizing collagen
✅ Improving microcirculation
✅ Relieving eye strain
✅ Diabetic retinopathy
The dosage of active ingredient needed to get these therapeutic effects is between 60-170 mg of Anthrocyanosides. The best source of this is from Mediherb which offers a 100:1 extract that contains 21.6 mg per tablet, so they are using 6,000mgs of Billbery to get 60mg of extract. So between 3 and 8 tablets a day depending on the severity of the condition. Taken with food.
Most people have heard of Ginkgo, but don’t know that the plant has both beneficial very important. and undesirable components. So like all herbs how it is processed is very important. Again this is why l only use Mediherb Gingko Forte.A 50:1 extract that has all the right components. Gingko has been proven effective in increasing circulation to the legs and patients also reported being able to walk further distances. It has also been proven to increase blood circulation to the brain and improvement of mental functions like mathematics. I have always used this to support any brain or cognitive disorders, like ADD, Dementia or Alzheimer’s. Gingko works quickly. I usually instruct patients to take 2 or 3 tablets prior to any situation where I need to be on my game such as a lecture or before taking an exam and results will start to be felt in about a half hour after taking the tablets. I recommend Ginkgo for eye disorders as a general support to increase blood flow to the eyes and also to support the visual centers of the brain. When used with Bilberry it works like magic.
Of course it is important to exercise th eeyes and there are many available programs on the internet that you can find. One traditional program is known as the Bates method but there are others. It is important that before you start exercising the eyes you give them a few weeks to get healthy and improve their blood flow, otherwise you can actually tear the membranes and create problems like floaters and flashers. I recommend using a laser pointer and following a set of patterns on th e wall that move you through a complete range of motion. I also suggest you focus on distant objects and near objects, back and forth this is called accommodation and it is very important in getting the eyes healthy. There is also a traditional diagram you can use called the Tibetan eye chart, (google it) just print it off and follow the instructions.
MANTA SLEEP MASK
The final piece of th e puzzle is you need to spend 10-20 minutes a day resting the eyes in complete darkness. The only way I have found to be able to do this is with a eye mask. The best one available is from Mantra Sleep. It has these cups that protect the eye lids so you can open and close your eyes in complete darkness wheelie you rest. The key is to keep them open and allow your pupils to completely dialate when in the darkness. You can even use these to sleep at night, they are super comfortable.
As many of you already know I have been in clinical practice for 20 years and everything I discuss in these videos are based on the results I have seen with my patients, I am a clinician and not a scientist so please keep that in mind when you are deciding on treatment approach. Everything does not work for everyone and anything strong enough to help will also have the opposite effect if used incorrectly. It is important to always proceed cautiously but with optimism whenever taking a supplement or trying a new therapy. Finally especially when it comes to herbs you must use standardized extracts, many products are from China and contain no useful medicines, because of this I have only use Mediherb products with my patients and I suggest you do the same. You can follow the link below and purchase directly from Mediherb and be assured that you are getting the very best extracts available free from contaminants.
COLD SORES/ CANKERS
BRUTAL PROBLEM COLD SORES AND CANKER SORES! But there is hope, over the last 18 years I have helped many people manage these ugly painful lesions with 3 simple products,
ST. JOHN'S WORT
and you can just go right now and buy them directly from Standard Process and MediHerb with a Patient Direct account by clicking (HERE), but for those who want to understand the mechanisms and WHY these products can help let's dive in... First, it has a lot to do with Calcium. Vitamin D moves calcium from your gut and into the blood where it can be used for a variety of important functions, however ion the cases of cold sores or canker sores we want that calcium to move from the blood into the soft tissues. The calcium can help the tissues heal and also acts like a targeting marker for our immune system making it easier to surprise the Herpes Simplex Virus. Many people have a problem getting the calcium from the blood into the tissues because they are lacking the proper amount of polyunsaturated fatty acids. What are these you are likely asking? From a chemical standpoint, polyunsaturated fats are simply fat molecules that have more than one unsaturated carbon bond in the molecule, this is also called a double bond. Oils that contain polyunsaturated fats are typically liquid at room temperature but start to turn solid when chilled. Olive oil is an example of a type of oil that contains polyunsaturated fats. Polyunsaturated fats can help reduce bad cholesterol levels in your blood which can lower your risk of heart disease and stroke. They also provide nutrients to help develop and maintain your body’s cells. Oils rich in polyunsaturated fats also contribute vitamin E to the diet, an antioxidant vitamin most Americans need more of. Oils rich in polyunsaturated fats also provide essential fats that your body needs but can’t produce itself – such as omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. You must get essential fats through food. Omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids are important for many functions in the body. Hives that people get when they are in the sun too much are due to a starvation of tissue calcium, if you give these people polyunsaturated fatty acids (Cataplex F), and calcium lactate and the welts clear up. Canker sores that form on the the inside of the mouth are caused by the herpes virus but if your tissue calcium level stays high the virus never forms canker sores. One herb I have had a long term relationship is St. John's Wort, there is not a week goes by without recommending it to patients, it certainly has produced great results in many terrible cases of depression and anxiety. Most people have heard about SJW for mental health symptoms but few know its most powerful function is working with the immune system. SJW works against enveloped viruses, these are viruses like HIV, Herpes Simplex, Zoster, Hepatitis, EBV, CMV, Measles and COVID, yes COVID-19 is a capsulated virus and so SJW can help destroy the virus. SJW breaks down the envelope of these viruses so that your immune system can get inside the virus and destroy it. You can take the wort orally and even dap it straight unto the sores with a Q-Tip. As with all recommendations, I suggest only using MediHerb and Standard Process products, as they are quality controlled. Another incredible property of calcium is that it is used by our immune systems to help target invaders. Whenever I feel like I maybe getting sick calcium lactate is the first product I ingest to flush out the nasties and tag them for my soldiers.
The "Passion" in "passion flower" refers to the passion of Jesus in Christian theology. In the 15th and 16th centuries, Spanish Christian missionaries adopted the unique physical structures of this plant, particularly the numbers of its various flower parts, as symbols of the last days of Jesus and especially his crucifixion.
Blue passion flower (P. caerulea) showing most elements of the Christian symbolism
Native to the southern United States, Passiflora incarnata is now widely cultivated throughout the US and Europe. Passionflower is utilized for its gentle calming properties. Passionflower is cooling to the body, calming to the mind, and soothing to the spirit. It quells disquietude, calms the ruminating mind, and can promote natural relaxation and helps in coping with stress. This plant is gentle yet profound. It can be administered as a soothing tea for children or the elderly and can help to calm a restless mind. Other common names include apricot vine, maypop, and wild passionflower.
Passion flower helps with anxiety, stress management, and related digestive problems. I find it to be one of the very best herbs for sleep dysfunction.
Our VALERIAN COMPLEX contains Passion Flower herb 5:1 extract 100 mg (from Passiflora incamata herb 500 mg).

BACK PAIN BELT
More than 90% of chronic back and neck pain is caused by damage to the spinal discs. The spinal disc is a cushion that acts as a shock absorber between your spinal bones. When placed under torque the disc can squish out of shape, tear and put pressure directly on the spinal nerves. The largest spinal nerve is the Sciatica nerve, that runs into your buttocks and down your leg. Over time if this pressure is not released it can damage the muscles and cause weakness, numbness, tingling and eventual problems walking and/ or using your bladder or sexual organs.
Recently advances in spinal orthotics has shown much promise in solving spinal disc injury. The new Disc Disease Solutions Belt (DDS) provides the standard support of a traditional back brace but has the added benefit of decompressing the spinal discs. The process is simple, DDS acts to provide traction between the lower part of the ribcage and the upper part of the hip creating weight-bearing forces away from the lower back. By increasing the intervertebral disc space, pressure applied on the nerve root is relieved, thereby eliminating pain while assisting active rehabilitation. The vertically expandable columns create a virtual support beam providing spinal decompression for the lumbar vertebrae.
The DDS Spinal Decompression Belt will speed up your recovery and help you enjoy daily activities that were once too difficult. The DDS is thin, lightweight and can be worn discretely under clothing allowing you to preform daily activities such as driving, walking and standing for long periods of time. Active people can enjoy sports and other leisure activities pain free. The DDS Spinal Decompression Brace provides a reduced pressure that can facilitate healing by reducing nerve compression and opening the disc space naturally without drugs or surgery. (actual before and after photo above). One of the biggest concerns about using orthotic bracing is that it can weaken spinal stabilizing muscles like the lumbar extensors. In studies conducted on the DDS Belt the lumbar spinal extensors muscle endurance actually increased over time with regular use. The brace is a dynamic system that does not allow for muscle atrophy or weakening.
