Self-Heal (Prunella vulgaris) Self Heal is used all over the world – by Native Americans, Europeans, and all across Asia, for things as varied as thyroid problems to conjunctivitis to tuberculosis to arthritis to cancer. Self Heal is great any time there are swollen lymph nodes – topically and internally – whether that’s just a part of a routine cold or flu, or a more serious issue. Self Heal has long been used for lymphatic movement in tonsilitis and tuberculosis, and more recently in lymphedema that happens after mastectomy. There have been many studies showing that Self Heal has antiviral properties, especially against the herpes simplex virus, HPV and even HIV. Much like Elderberry, research shows that Prunella inhibits the binding ability of a virus, so that the virus can’t replicate. It has its own various antibiotic mechanisms and there have been many studies showing that combining herbs with biofilm disrupting actions with antibiotics makes the antibiotics more effective, but in the case of Self Heal, you also get the bonus lymphatic stimulation. Self Heal supports kidney health, stimulates lymphatic movement, and has immunomodulating polysaccharides (similar to Astragalus and immune supporting mushrooms) allowing for allergy support. Very few people are allergic to Self Heal, there’s no need to limit use, and there is little potential for drug interactions – and yet have such potent healing powers.
Chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum morifolium) This is a cooling herb full of fortifying, tissue-protecting nutrients and antimicrobial constituents. In Chinese Medicine it is a mild Yin tonic that clears heat, disperses wind, purifies the blood, calms the liver, brightens the eyes, refreshes the mind, and rejuvenates the body.
Lemon Balm (from the mint/lamiaceae family) is a relaxing and uplifting nervine that helps with anxiety & depression. Helps restore overall nervous system function. Very useful when stress & anxiety affects digestion. Powerful antiviral.
