“We Hear It Time and Time Again”


This year is gonna be different. For as long as I can remember whenever winter comes along I tell myself I am not going to get sick no matter what.  It will be easy right?  Go to bed and get a deep sleep of at least 8 to 9 hours each and every night; avoid sugar, alcohol, and late night eating; and cut out all unnecessary stress.  Simple right?

I guess everyone else did not get the memo.  The first week goes well, but then something comes up…  from celebrating a friend’s party to staying up late to study for a finale or help your child with homework, slowly but surely, little by little… S&*@T Happens!

The sad fact. Even the times when we do do everything “by the book”, unfortunately others that we interact with may not.  The environment we live in today from the people we interact with to the foods we eat all play an impact on our health.

“Who Else Is Sick of Being Sick”?


I am selfish. The Superhero Seasonal Kit, came alive because I was sick of being sick, and even when I did my best to get rest, drink fluids, stay healthy.. I also enjoy a night out on the town and realize that no matter how disciplined I am with my health (kombucha, wheatgrass, jiagulan, dodge ball!, etc) there are so many external factors that are beyond my control… Though I LOVE dodge ball, it is the sweatiest grossest game you can imagine when it comes to germs, but think about how many times a day you are in contact with other people… please note I am all for more contact with people, just not germs :)

Two weeks ago, a bunch of my childhood friends had a little reunion visiting my friend in Charlotte.  We shot hoops and complained how out of shape we are compared to our high school days, played super Nintendo, and went to a piano bar that had one dollar bottled beer specials the whole night.  In a word it was:  AWESOME!

Until The 12 Hour Flight Back Home. Yep, good ole’ “super healthy kombucha drinkin’, wheat grass growin’, Jiagulan tincture makin'” Dave, got sick  :(

For me the worst part about being sick is that I don’t feel like my normal happy go lucky self… And (now I know I’m gonna piss some people off here).. seeing a Traditional Western Medical Doctor for the common cold is a waste of time and money.  Don’t get me wrong… If I got my finger chopped off while making my wheat grass shot in the morning, I would be the first to head to the hospital for sutures, but for the common cold, common docs do not have that much to offer, except over the counter med and Anti-Biotics (AND DO NOT GET ME STARTED ON THE LATTER!).

.

“Gone, Baby Gone”


Usually it takes about two weeks for a cold to run its course.  It is like a bell curve where its a gets worse before it gets better sort of thing.  Runny nose into sore throat into cough, etc.  When I got home from the flight I decided to take immediate action and I remembered what my good friend and herbalist Megan Hart told me a while back as well as some well respected local alternative medicine doctors right here in LA.

I followed the protocol to a tea (pun inteanded**), and BANG! two days later 90% of the symptoms were gone.. I still had a sniffle or two until the next day when I was completely back to my normal happy and silly self.

This all went down 2 weeks ago and I have been scrambling ever since to try to make this available to as many people as possible before the season gets a hold of us.

“One of the things you are going to love about the superhero kit, is that it acts as a double solution for the winter season”.

1.  First there are supplements and routines to do on a daily basis as a preventative.  I think we all know by now that an ounce of prevention is worth more than a liter (or quart depending where you are reading this) of treatment.  These things are meant, much like sleep, in slowly building up your immune system and ensuring that your organs are working right.

2. However, when push comes to shove it also comes with what I call “The Superhero 2 Day Protocol“, which will blast your immune system into overdrive to knock out the cold/flu before it gets a chance to get going.

.

“Here’s What You Are Going To Get Within Each Superhero Seasonal Kit”

Below is a step by step listing of what comes with your Superhero Seasonal kit… (and What It Will Do For You!)

Immunity Booster Tincture:

.

This is one of the 2 tinctures I used myself in “The Superhero 2 Day Protocol” when I got home from the dreadful 12 hour flight.  The custom tincture formula is being prepared as you are reading this right now by Megan herself and is designed to help combat and prevent your viral and bacterial infections and stress related illnesses.  The herbs are hand selected (and some home grown), and are all natural, organic, and potent.  In fact Megan prepares all her tinctures at a 1:5 herb potencyThis means you would have to consume 5 bottles of the other 1:1 tinctures that are up on many health food shelves to equal just one bottle of Immunity Booster.  It is prepared in a one ounce glass amber bottle with glass dropperNOW UPGRADED TO TWO OUNCES OF IMMUNITY BOOSTER FORMULA!

Here’s a quick break down of the ingredients selected for this formula and what it will do for your body.

  • Eleuthero – (Also known as Siberian Ginseng though Eleutherococcus senticosis is more tonifying than the true Ginseng Panax species.)   Taken regularly, it enhances immune function, decreases cortisol levels and inflammatory response, and it promotes improved cognitive and physical performance.  In human studies, Eleuthero has been successfully used to treat bone marrow suppression caused by chemotherapy or radiation, angina, hypercholesterolemia, and neurasthenia with headache, insomnia, and poor appetite. Eleuthero has also been shown to have significant antidepressant effects in rats. [ Which is great b/c if I was a rat I would be pretty darn depressed].  :)
  • Astragalus – One of the super stars of Traditional Chinese Medicine, it has been known to improve the immune response and reduce fatigue both as a preventative and during  cold.  According to Chinese Medicine Astragalus is said to have an effect on the “surface” of the body—that is, it is used to tonify the “Protective Qi,” known as Wei Qi in Chinese. This Protective Qi is a special kind of energy which circulates just under the skin and in the muscle. Protective Qi is a Yang energy.
  • Oregon Grape –  Although Oregon grape is not a true grape, it does grow in Oregon! It helps aid your body to resist and combat illness and infection.  It also is a wonderful digestive aid thus helping the rest of the ingredients in the Immunity Booster tincture work better.  In the lab, it has been shown to kill or suppress the growth of some of the nastiest pathogens (disease-causing microbes): Candida and other fungi, Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, E. coli, and numerous others.   As a preventative it also inhibits the ability of bacteria to attach to human cells, which helps prevent and treat infections.  Oregon grape is an effective alternative to antibiotics in many situations.
  • Rose Hips – I am sure by now everyone knows how important it is to receive REAL vitamin C vs the synthetic kinds… well, next to Amla (gooseberries for the non-Ayurvedic peeps) this is the best most natural way to get your vitamin C.. but did you also know that in addition to vitamins C, rose hips contain vitamin  E and K, and contain calcium, citric acid, iron, niacin, phosphorus, tannin, vitamin A, B1, B2, and P.  As a gentle natural stimulant it gently allows movement of the bowels.  And as a gentle natural diuretic rose hips cleanse the urinary system.

Echinacea Booster Tincture:

.

This is the second of the 2 tincture formulas that are in each superhero seasonal kit.  There is some controversy over whether echinacea should be used as a preventative during cold and flu season or only right when the cold sets in.  The thought process is that if you take in on a daily basis your body might build a resistance to it and it will not be as effective for the times you need it.  The majority of the people I spoke with suggested that it is taken in small doses as a preventative only during times where you could experience stress and high risk germ situations (like the airport, etc).  Then at the first sign of sickness (and I mean the very first sign.. that first sniffle!), you can mega-dose for short period of time.

This is exactly one of the secretes I did in “The Superhero 2 Day Protocol“.  Because I was not taking the tincture throughout, as soon as I got home I used it (a bunch of it!), as one of my ingredients in my H.O.T. Drink (recipe for the H.O.T. Drink is also included with your kit).  And just like all her tinctures, this premium echinacea herb is all natural, organic, and potent (1:5 herb potency to be exact)!  This means you would have to consume 5 bottles of the other 1:1 tinctures that are up on many health food shelves to equal just one bottle of Echinacea BoosterIt is prepared in a one ounce glass amber bottle with glass dropper. NOW UPGRADED TO TWO OUNCES OF ECHINACEA BOOSTER FORMULA!

Here’s a few interesting points on Echinacea and what it will do for you.

  • Echinacea – Echinacea has been scientifically proven to measurably increase the number of immune cells within your body that combat infection and disease.  It has also been shown to stimulate these immune cells to work better and faster (you know like a superhero!).  Echinacea also significantly increases phagocytosis, your white blood cells’ ability to destroy harmful micro-organisms such as bacteria, viruses and fungus. These actions will help you combat infection and disease more effectively and also protect you from future invasion and illness.
    .
    Echinacea’s effectiveness is clearly documented in respected medical textbooks such as the Merck Index and the Physician’s Desk Reference for successfully treating and preventing colds, flu and general infections.
    .
    A 2007 study by the University of Connecticut combined findings from 14 previously-reported trials examining Echinacea and concluded that Echinacea can cut the chances of catching a cold by more than half, and shorten the duration of a cold by an average of 1.4 days.

Quarter Pound of  Our Daily Cleansing Tea (version 2.0):

.

This is an un-touched, un-photo-shopped, picture of the new cleansing tea! Be sure to click on the picture to really appreciate the herbs used!

We first introduced this custom in house (ok, well actually it was prepared in our licensed commercial kitchen… and besides I currently reside in an apartment) blend a few months back and as a bonus 5 day sampler in our kombucha starter kit promotion.

We received such great feedback we decided to bring it back!  The formula AND preparation techniques have been improved upon on this current batch so that it allows less daily preparation time while making the herbs way, way, way (dare I say it one more time), way better.

I am still figuring out whether the preparation techniques will be included as an online video format or written, though I assure you that you will know exactly how to properly prepare this tea in the most optimal way for the winter.

Here are a list of the herbs used in our Daily Cleansing Tea.  Remember we use whole herbs… no powders!  I should note that I am not knocking powdered herbs, as a powdered herb is great for capsules and even for tea preparation as it will lend to more surface area which will make the decotion stronger.  But it is usually better to start with whole herbs and grind them yourself (if you choose to), right before you prepare your tea.  Plus whole herbs tend to feature much more complex and enjoyable taste characteristics.

Here is the list of the herbal ingredients that make up the Daily Cleanse Tea, all carefully hand selected and then custom hand blended for you (and your liver, digestion, blood, lymphatic system and kidneys!).

  • Digestion Support Complex
    • Ginger Root
    • Cardamon Seed
    • Fennel Seed
    • Peppermint
    • Cinnamon Bark
    • Black Peppercorn
    • Cloves
  • Liver Support Complex
    • Cardamon Seed
    • Dandelion Root
    • Burdock Root
    • Orange Peel
  • Kidney Support Complex
    • Dandelion
    • Burdock
    • Horsetail
    • Parsley Root
  • UTI Support Complex (increases urine flow to help flush out infections, reduce inflammation, and kill bacteria)
    • Uva Ursi Leaf
    • Hydrangea Root
    • Gravel Root
    • Juniper Berry [also the name of my 7 month old niece!]
    • Corn Silk
  • Adrenal and Immune Support Complex
    • Pau d’Arco
    • Licorice Root

Quarter Pound of Our New Herbal Bath Soak Formula:

.

We’ve been keeping this on the down low.  Did you know that herbs aren’t just used for sippin’?  This formula is specifically designed to treat some of those other senses to a sweet escape.

You can use it to unwind after a long cold day, ease tension and muscle aches, and induce a peaceful and restorative deep sleep.

AND…

In addition, it is THE secret weapon in the “2 Day Superhero Protocol“!  You use these herbs to soak in, the minute (heck second), you feel a cold coming on.  It is meant to clear the sinus and lungs and most importantly to increase your body temperature.

Many people do not realize but a high temperature (fever, etc), is a sign of the body trying to fight off the cold… as long as we are in decent health, we can assist the body by externally raising our temperature.

Aside from owning a sauna, soaking in hot water WITH herbs that encourage sweating is the best way to speed up the body’s natural ability to fight off infection.

And if you can nip it in the bud so to speak you don’t have to get worse to get better!

This never before released product is one of a kind and is only being offered as part of the superhero seasonal kit.

“Here Are The Bonuses”

.

In addition to The Immunity Booster Tincture, The Echinacea Booster Formula, a Quarter Pound of The Daily Cleansing Tea (2.0), and a Quarter Pound of  Our Never Released Herbal Bath Soak Formula – Here Are 3 FREE! Bonuses For You To Enjoy.

Bonus #1: Giant Muslin Filter Pouch

This is used to make the Daily Cleanse Tea.  In fact, we also include a recipe on how to make one giant batch using the filter pouch so that the preparation will last you for the entire week, saving you time AND ensuring your success.    It creates the perfect balance of freshness and ease.

The Giant Muslin Filter Pouch also acts as the filter for the preparation of the herbal bath soak formula.  And yes, instructions will be included for the proper preparation of the soak as well!

Bonus #2: The 2 Day Superhero Protocol

So if you have actually been reading this entire thing (first off.. way to go, I know it is long – and I spent the better part of the weekend writing this out in detail for you, b/c I thought you guys deserved the full story of how this came about and to be as descriptive as possible).. you will see that I keep mentioning this thing called The 2 Day Superhero Protocol.

This will be the step by step directions of how to beat a cold or flu BEFORE it has time to kick in.  You see the tinctures and herbs in this kit are first meant as a preventative… BUT What Happens When, Despite Everything, You Still Get Sick?

I’ll tell you what happens. The 2 Day Superhero Protocol Happens Baby! The protocol is a written out list of what to do within the first 48 hours of your cold… I actually wrote the protocol out on an hour by hour basis so there is no confusion and/or guess work.

You will be utilizing both the products that come with the kit as well as a few other goodies and surprises to kick everything up a notch, – all of which you probably have around the house already or can pick up for about 3 bucks.

Here’s the thing.  You do NOT have to accept getting sick, and if you do begin to get sick, you do not have to accept the old saying; “you have to get worse before you get better”.

Look.  I wish I could tell you that I never get sick… I know it is probably the “right thing to say”, especially as a dude who owns a tea and wellness company.  But the happy truth is: I am NOT a perfect model of health.

I say happy b/c I have found the few things that work for me… kombucha, wheat grass, dodge ball, jiagulan, mostly vegetarian diet, tongue scraping, body brushing, flax and coconut oil, yoga, working with the elderly, life coaching… (okay perhaps I do do a lot of stuff).

Yet – I still stay up late, watch too much tv, travel a bunch, drink socially, eat pizza and prob stress too much about putting out free wtf! videos for everyone… so yes, sometimes I get sick.  But this time I cut it down by 90% by following this protocol.  It was like getting a week of my life back.

It worked for me and I know it can work for you!

Bonus #3: TWO Bags of Superhero Formula

This is also a brand new, never been released formula specifically used for The Superhero 2 Day Protocol.  We are going to send you two bags total – so you have one for each day of the protocol.

Each comes hand prepared and then individually packaged in its own filter bag so that it is ready to rock and roll when you need it.  Instructions on how to prepare the superhero tea are included with the protocol.

Here’s a quick break down of the ingredients selected for The Superhero Formula –

  • Yarrow – Yarrow was used in traditional Native American herbal medicine.   The Cherokee drank the tea to reduce fever and aid in restful sleep.   The salicylic acids found in yarrow are a component of aspirin, which may account for its use in treating fevers and reducing pain.   It as been shown to stimulate the circulation, and can be used for high blood pressure.
  • Elderberry – In one study elderberry, (also known as sambucus) was shown to be effective for treating Influenza B. People using the elderberry extract recovered much faster than those only on a placebo.  The study was published in the Journal of Alternative Complementary Medicine.  Another study published in 2004 showed that 93% of flu patients were completely symptom-free within two days.  Elderberry is also used to soothe the throat.
  • Ginger – This has been my favorite herb for years now!  I would highly recommend adding additional fresh ginger when you prepare the tea (this is mentioned in the protocol), but in a pinch you will still receive much of the benefits of the dried herb.  It really is amazing! From thinning out the mucous membranes so that you can breath easier, to increasing your immune system and fighting viral and bacteria, ginger puts the “hero” in this superhero formula.
  • Peppermint – Peppermint is currently one of the most economically important aromatic and medicinal crops produced in the U.S.  It has been proven to be effective against the common cold and can act as an expectorant to promote the removal of phlegm and help with improved breathing… plus it tastes really yummy.

I know that’s a lot of stuff so here’s the recap…

-> 1 ounce of Immunity Booster Tincture –  UPDATED 11/11/10: NOW UPGRADED TO TWO OUNCES OF IMMUNITY BOOSTER FORMULA

-> 1 ounce of Echinacea Booster Tincture –  UPDATED 11/11/10: NOW UPGRADED TO TWO OUNCES OF ECHINACEA BOOSTER

-> Quarter Pound of Daily Cleanse Tea (version 2.0)

-> Quarter Pound of the New Herbal Bath Soak Formula

-> Jumbo Muslin Cloth Filter

-> Two Day Superhero Protocol

-> Two Bags of Superhero Formula

Each Superhero Kit lasts 1 month.  We plan on shipping these before thanksgiving which means you will have it just in time for winter.  I also decided that we are going to give you a substantial discount for those who really want to make sure they have enough to last of the entire season.

Just purchased Dave! Thank you for all that you do. I am particularly excited for the tinctures as it is something I can just have in my car and take it with some water on my way to work. Even I can’t mess that up :)

admin November 10, 2010 at 9:47 pm

Hey Joe,

Thanks for the comment and your personal opinion. Can I ask though, expensive to what? Getting sick and taking a week off from work? I am fortunate enough to have health insurance, but it would still cost me about $300 bucks to see a doctor.. $35 for the appointment and $265 for the time I lose getting the appointment and waiting in the office. In this economy, with all the additional stresses (and I will leave my personal views about that for another discussion), how can you not afford to get this? But then again, that is the beauty of free choice.. so if you really do believe that you are in a recession and that you can not afford this, please do not purchase and perhaps follow some of the other tips I suggest in the video above. I want my customers to always Feel Amazing about their purchases and experience with us!

Thank you for speaking up about this.. I am tired of people saying there is no cure for the common cold yet will spend a couple hundred bucks on seeing a doctor and buy pharmaceutical drugs that do more harm than good. would much rather invest in my health rather than hurt it.

I had a question… you mentioned free shipping.. but is it free shipping on only the 3 month supply or on any of them? I am going to place my order, but just need to know first.

Thanks

this site was recommended to me by my friend who has been brewing kombucha for 3 years (she got a brewing system from you and says you are amazing.. hmmm I think she might have a crush on you too Dave!).

anyway I also was really impressed from all the great free wheat grass vids you recently put up and now I am really blown away by this. I just purchased my 3 month supply and am really looking forward to it.. just hope I get it soon so I can start taking it before T-day (its already getting cold here).

Reply

admin November 8, 2010 at 6:31 pm

thanks Suzie.. I am slightly blushing.. even though the internet has been pretty good to me thru the years.. our best form of advertising is still word of mouth, so please thank your friend for me. I am glad you enjoyed the vids on wheat grass.. did you enjoy them enough to start growing some? Oh and CONGRATS on becoming a superhero this winter :)

Wish I could afford this right now, it sounds like a great kit. I do make my own elderberry syrup, that and my regular nutritional protocal kept me healthy through last winter and a lot of stress. I also have some of my own herbs tinctured, but not in the formula you have available. If the money gods are good to me soon,and you have not sold out, I will try and place an order- I like the idea of having everything as a “kit”-ready to go because when you are feeling sick you somethings do not feel like playing “magic kitchen and garden” either. It is easy to say you will when you are not sick, forgetting just how lousy you feel and low energy you have. Good luck with this great idea! Green Blessings, Susan
Ps: I have been enjoying my continous kombucha- without it, I would never get enough of that either- been making it with some added sassafras and fresh ginger to the tea and sugar.

Dave you are one cool guy (coming from a cool guy)… I am prob going to get it, but also wanted to make sure we receive it soon b/c I sure can use it for the upcoming season. You mentioned free shipping by thursday… usually this means you ship out the cheapest wa possible.. parcel post I assume. Guess this is fine if its free, but can you tell me.. I know you guys are in LA so for people on the east coast it would take some extra time.. and we’re the ones that need it the most!!

keep doing what you are doing.. I really look forward to your emails.

Hey there,
The hippie in me loves this immune boosting protocol yet the scientist in me wishes to learn more about your tinctures. Most claims these days aren’t just based on whats in a formula, it’s the synergistic effects. I research these formulas that are out there on the market and with my associates, we come to a consensus on the products. As a potentail buyer and friend of some esteemed bloggers/reseacher publishers, can you provide me your links to the research on your wonderful sounding formulas? Id appreciate it for I am interested in the best new tinture
come this Winter for myself as well as my family and friends. Dog include…just kiding. Thanks Dave

Hi Zach,

The tincture formulas are from our personal herb queen Megan Hart, I will be speaking with her this week as she has specially prepared these tinctures exclusively for our community. I will be happy to ask her for you and/or perhaps you can get her in contact with your esteemed crew and she can write some guest posts for you guys!

Been a little crazy with the launch, but I will do my best to get back to you soon.
