Japanese Knotweed

This herb has been found to enhance blood flow, especially to the eye, heart, skin, and joints. These benefits make it especially helpful for Lyme disease patients as it facilitates blood flow in hard-to-reach areas to kill the spirochetes. It can also be useful in treating the Lyme coinfections of Bartonella and neuroborreliosis, Lyme arthritis, and post-Lyme syndrome.

Artemisinin SOD

This herb helps to get rid of parasites, provide immune support, and calm inflammation at the same time. This product was formulated for doctors looking to support the patient’s ability to maintain healthy levels of Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) and Nuclear Factor kappa B (NF kappa B), while also supporting the body’s natural ability to fight parasites.

Ginseng Sublime

Research has found that ginseng showed significant reductions in general fatigue, and was associated with an uptrend toward quality of life improvement without an increase of adverse effects from Herxheimer reactions.

Chinese Skullcap

This herb is known for its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial activity, but it also has neuroprotective, antioxidant, and anti-excitatory properties. Its active constituent is Baicalein.


This herbal regime promotes the body’s healthy anti-viral system, anti-bacterial response, parasitic response, immune system, circulation, digestion, and inflammatory response. Prescription anti-microbials are not always tolerated or effective as a single therapy, so many doctors find that nutritional support in the form of herbal microbial balancers may potentiate traditional antibiotic therapy.


This combination of herbal ingredients are designed to address stressful situations in the moment or may be taken in preparation for these events. The formula includes support for focus, mood balance and calming relaxation without drowsiness.
