I have come to know that all ill health is caused by tension, especially chronic tension, blocking the free flow of energy around the body. Tonic herbs restore that free flow and correct energy imbalances, helping you to feel good. Tonic herbs can do something else than other herbs rarely can; they have the power to heal the spirit. They can lift depression, mend a broken heart and make you feel good about life.
Tonic herbs can even work on aspects of your personality, on what in the West would be considered character flaws. For instance maybe you lack willpower, or tend not to do those things you said you would do. Perhaps you are nervous and shy, or have low self esteem. Perhaps you get frustrated and angry a lot of the time, or see the world as a bleak, dark place. Tonic herbs have the capacity to turn these ‘flaws’ around because they work on the energy imbalances that cause them.
Taoist tonic herbs are a selection of herbs that, when eaten or taken as a tea, help the body to balance itself and heal from a variety of issues such as fatigue, digestive issues, and even emotional imbalances.
In fact the aim isn’t just to keep you in good health; it goes much further. The goal is what the Taoists call ‘radiant health,’ which is health and vitality so strong that it puts you beyond any danger of illness.
The Taoist tonic herbs are often referred to as ‘super herbs’ because they are unlike the usual herbs you get from your local health store. The great Taoist tonic herbs are immensely powerful and effective in the creation of superb health, while being completely safe to use even in large amounts for long periods. They are intelligent, and can shift and balance your energy for optimal wellbeing in a way no other substances on the planet can match.
Taoism is a 5,000 year old system of health and healing from China. Its primary focus is on building strength and energy to keep you in good health. Fixing things that have already gone wrong is very much a secondary aim.
People tend to think Chinese herbalism is complicated. In Chinese medicine, there are medicinal herbs and there are tonic herbs. There are more than ten thousand medicinal herbs, mainly used for treating an existing illness. They have to be prescribed by a practitioner of Chinese medicine because some of them may be harmful if used incorrectly. They are used strictly in the correct dosage and for a limited period of time.
Tonic herbs are very different. They are relatively rare and precious compared to medicinal herbs; there are only about 100 of them in the Taoist system and further few hundred worldwide. They are used to tonify ie strengthen the body and correct imbalances before disease shows up.
Ordinary herbs only provide your system with a boost in one direction, possibly in the wrong direction, depending on your individual needs. For instance, echinacea will boost your immune system, but it’s possible that your immune system is already over-active and is attacking things that aren’t pathogens or are even a part of the body. This uses up a lot of the body’s energy and resources. In that case, an immune boost is not what you need to heal. An immune modulating herb on the other hand will boost your immunity if that’s what you need, or will calm it down if your immune system is overdoing it. In both cases, the tonic herb educates your immune system and helps it to work more effectively in a targeted way.
If you are living with poor health as a result of tension, environmental toxins or are suffering from a lack of general wellbeing, give yourself the gift of Taoist tonic herbs to restore yourself to having ‘radiant health.
