    Imagine you getting a brand new, top of the line Mercedes Benz, with all the newest features ! I am sure you would handle it with such care that you would wash it daily and make sure that it has a sparkling sheen. All that is great , but you also would not stop there, you would make sure that you use the premium gasoline instead of the low grade ones, service that car every 3000 miles to make sure that everything is going well, even when there are no warning lights. God forbid , a warning light comes on !!  you would surely be in the shop to get a thorough service and check up, oil change ,etc.


    Why should we not take the best care of it ? Yes most of us take care of the exterior, but the servicing of our interior is often times neglected. Our body sends us warning signals every time we get one or more of the symptoms listed above.




    Most sickness starts from toxins within the colon then get absorbed through the colon wall into the bloodstream. When the colon is toxic, the bloodstream can become toxic, when the bloodstream is toxic the lymphatic system can become toxic, and thus the toxins circulate throughout the body. When these toxins circulate through the blood, they infect the whole body. This weakens every organ and taxes the immune system. When the immune system is in a weak state the body becomes susceptible to disease.
    Just like many other things life has its cycles. The cleansing cycle starts with a vibrant immune system and a clean functioning filtering system. Toxins, germs and bacteria can enter that system from the environment, the food and water that are consumed and even contact with other people or animals that are contagious with some sort of infectious disease. Usually those contaminates are processed and eliminated by our wonderful filtering system. When the toxins, germs or bacteria are able to slip through our filtering system it becomes the immune system’s job to go on a search and destroy mission. Its job is to kill any and all unwanted threats to the general health and well being of our body.
    There are over 22,000 diseases listed, so a particular disease is named according to the symptoms that are present. Basically, all of these diseases are a result of toxins in the body overwhelming the immune system. One of the first clues of toxicity is multiple-system symptoms. Multiple-system symptoms indicates that the immune system and the filtering system are breaking down and that something needs to be done to fortify the defense against disease that we are born with. When a home becomes too dirty to be sanitary the logical thing to do is a deep cleaning. A deep cleaning is more involved than just dusting and mopping the floors. A deep cleaning finds all of the dust and grime that is hidden from view but still affects the overall cleanliness of the home. It is the same for our bodies. We need a deep cleaning from time to time. We need to remove all of the toxins that are just waiting for a chance to make an appearance as a systemic breakdown or a symptom of a disease.
    I know that this all makes sense but how does one go about deep cleaning a body? The answer is a blood cleanse. The one thing that has access to every part of our body and is required to deliver life giving oxygen while extracting toxins and waste is blood. It stands to reason that if the blood that is circulating through your veins is dirty it can’t possibly remove and eliminate the toxins and waste that are throughout your whole body.
    Herbs are a great source for a deep cleanse. Herbs have properties in them that aid your body to eliminate the impurities that are collected and stored.



    Bitters are a diverse group of chemicals compounds that share the common characteristic of a bitter taste. Bitters can be used to strengthen and improve the whole digestive system in the body as well as the nervous system. Bitters also act to increase the vital energy centers in the body. Because they have such a broad effect on the entire physiology, tone, and function of the body bitters are a principle that can be used to treat the body as a whole. The beneficial effects of bitters go beyond digestive hormone activity. Bitter stimulation can often shift a condition or illness that does not appear to have anything to do with the digestive process. The bitter principal acts to increase self-healing and resistance in many ways.

    But They Taste So Bitter!

    To be effective bitters must be tasted on the taste buds of the tongue where they stimulate the bitter taste buds on the tongue and thus increase salivation. This stimulates the gastric reflex to cause digestive juices to be secreted. There is increased flow of digestive juices from the pancreas, duodenum, and liver that results in better assimilation of nutrients and less undigested food being passed through the digestive tract. This is of benefit to problems that have their basis in inefficient or allergy distorted digestion.

    The Various Roles of Bitters

    Bitters act to increase or stabilize the appetite. In general, there is a stimulation of the appetite which is important in conditions of convalescence and where there is otherwise a reduction of appetite. Bitters do not seem to increase appetite in a digestively healthy person, rather a more healthful balance in the appetite develops. The body acquires more taste for healthy foods and less taste for unhealthy foods.

    When bitters activate the gastric secretion of hydrochloric acid and other digestive enzymes, the nerve tone of the muscles of the entire digestive tract improves. Blood circulation improves and the body can assimilate foods, absorb nutrients, and eliminate wastes more efficiently. In a broader way, this improvement in blood circulation affects the healthy activity of the heart and circulation in general.

    Cleansing and Detoxification

    Bitters stimulate the liver to do a more effective cleansing and detoxifying job and prompt the gallbladder to make bile. The production of bile helps metabolize fats and keeps elimination moving smoothly. Bitters also produce a diuretic and hepatic effect in the body. This has value when working with any condition that has origins in a sluggish or overworked liver.

    Stabilizing Blood Sugar

    Bitters produce a regulatory effect on the secretion of the pancreas of the hormones that regulate blood sugar, insulin, and glucagon. This can be of benefit in stabilizing insulin levels and modulating blood sugar swings. Diabetics should be careful when taking bitters because bitters may upset their blood sugar balance.

    Reducing Stress

    Bitters can also be supportive in reducing stress and anxiety and regenerating the nervous system. When bitters work to strengthen digestion this activates the parasympathetic branch of the autonomic nervous system and induces a more relaxed state in the body. Bitters can be useful with those who are overextended and stressed out. Bitters produce subtle, beneficial psychological effects. In some cases they can produce a marked antidepressant effect and a “generally tonic effect upon consciousness.”

    Increasing Immune Responses

    Some bitter herbs such as Gentian can modulate the gut associated immune responses. In some therapeutic circles bitters are indicated for treatment of those recovering from infectious diseases including viral conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome. Some clinical tests have shown that bitters can decrease levels of sIgA antibodies and reduce or eliminate symptoms in those with inflammatory bowel disease. Bitters may help repair gut wall damage through stimulating self-repair mechanisms.

    Who Should Use Bitters?

    Bitters are indicated when there is digestive weakness. Digestive weakness is often associated with an infectious disease that depletes the vital energy of the body. Digestive weakness and decreased vitality both reduce the assimilation of nutrients and the elimination of wastes resulting in a spiraling effect of depletion in the body. Stress can deplete vital energy which disrupts digestion and this further decreases the body’s vital energy.

    Bitters can also be useful for those who have an over reliance on mental energy that can result in physical exhaustion.

    Bitters are indicated for use in:

    • poor fat digestion
    • poor protein digestion
    • weakness due to chronic illness especially with a bacterial or viral infection
    • loss of energy and vitality
    • painful digestion
    • intestinal cramps
    • excessive gas
    • irritable bowel syndrome
    • poor appetite
    • anemia
    • excessive craving for sweets, fats, and carbohydrates
    • immune disorders where nutritional deficiency is present
    • digestive weakness due to mental overwork and lack of exercise.
    • Insomnia
    • Over weight
    • Frequent head-aches
