Medicinal Herbal Remedies

Our herbal therapy combines knowledge from Ayurveda, Tibetan medicine, Chinese medicine and Western herbalism. The 3 ancient Eastern traditions utilize individual constitutional analysis, and formulate medicinal herbal remedies accordingly. Western herbalism concentrates on treating specific symptoms with the appropriate chemical constituents and actions found in various herbs. We combine the 2 approaches for a more effective herbal therapy strategy.

Ayurveda and Tibetan medicine share a common structure based on an individual’s energetic pattern tendencies. In Ayurveda, these are called the 3 doshas. In Tibetan medicine, they are called the 3 nyepas. Both traditions formulate medicinal herbal remedies dependent upon the individual’s birth or genetic constitutional tendencies, and the current dysfunctional tendency that is causing problems. Chinese medicine approaches constitution analysis with the 5 element theory, and Yin and Yang duality. Again, the therapy is based upon the underlying energetic patterns that are responsible for the both the constitution and imbalances. A good medicinal herbal remedy will decrease the unwanted patterns, while strengthening or building the normal functioning of the  genetic constitution. Western herbalism adds the benefit of focusing on a very specific desired action related to symptom relief, while again building the person’s inherit strengths.

Santa came early to Buddha's Alchemy. Processing some wonderful medicinal fungi today. The Bear's Head Tooth and Turkey Tail are already dry, and the Ganoderma is beautiful when sliced!

Hericium species are a family of fungi that includes the infamous Lion’s Mane and Bear’s Head Tooth. There are several types that are considered interchangeable both medicinally and culinary wise, and sometimes difficult to differentiate. H. coralloides, H. americanum and H. erinaceus (Lions Mane proper) belong to this family. The most important medicinal applications make use of their anti-tumor/cancer properties (stimulate the immune system to control tumor growth and have tumor suppression factors), and their nerve generating properties (they induce the synthesis of nerve growth factor causing new nerve growth and myelination). In China, they are used to cure gastric ulcers and chronic gastritis.

Trametes versicolor is Turkey Tail, and one of my favorite local harvests. A truly magnificent medicinal fungus that is widely and well studied, and contains PSP and PSK (anti-tumor polysaccharides), improves outcomes in autoimmunity, and prevents antibiotic resistance.

Ganoderma oregonense is part of the famous family to which Reishi mushroom belongs, and grows in the Pacific Northwest. The Ganodermas contain constituents that are anti-tumor, immunomodulating, antiviral and antibiotic, hepatoprotective, and anti-inflammatory. Indeed, Reishi mushroom is considered the premiere longevity tonic amongst Daoist and Buddhist yogis in the East. Ling Zhi, the Chinese name for Reishi, means “spirit plant”, divine or spiritual mushroom, mushroom of immortality, or tree of life mushroom. It is also thought that it may have derived its name from the word Rishi, meaning forest sage, of which the Buddha was considered the ultimate.
