The nights are getting longer and the days shorter, while at the same time, more festive and hurried. The holidays must be upon us! So many factors come together this time of year that we find ourselves reaching for all kinds of Spagyric support: for digestion, immune defenses, energy, and mood.

This season’s sale is 20% off Spagyrics to support your health and cheer- click here to go right to our sale page, or read on for more information- below, we talk about our immune-boosting Spagyrics on sale, digestive tonics are discussed in this article, and this post talks about mood support.

Echinacea is a well-known immune booster, and for good reason. This lovely and tough prairie flower was used by First Nations people as an antidote to venomous bites from snakes and spiders, and that action on the lymphatic system also leads to its more common modern use as an immune stimulant. The constituents in Echinacea root have specific action against many pathogens, including strep and staph, and it is also numbing to any tissues it contacts, giving symptom relief to sore throats, as well. Our Echinacea Essence gives a good tingly “buzz” when taken, and it’s proven very useful at the onset of a cold or flu, to ward off the infection and return to health more quickly.

Another very specific, hard-hitting acute herbal fighter is Osha, the root of a Southwestern celery relative revered for centuries by the indigenous people of the area. Warming and spicy, Osha is both anti-viral and anti-bacterial, as well as anti-inflammatory to the respiratory system. It also brings more moisture to the lungs, thinning mucus so that coughs can be more productive. Our Osha Essence can be felt almost immediately- it gives a strong sense of strengthened defenses and inner fight, and like Echinacea, it is also numbing to the throat.

Osha combines very well with another plant of the desert, but from further west into California- Yerba Santa. This delicious herb gets its lovely aromatic qualities from its flavonoids, which also give it the healing power to support and strengthen the structure of the mucus membranes. The result is that these tissues become less reactive, less permeable and damaged, and more able to fight off invaders, whether infections or allergens. We have seen our Yerba Santa Essence work quickly and effectively on so many respiratory issues that it’s the first Spagyric we reach for to bring balance to respiratory function.

Having herbal help to fight off invaders is something to be grateful for, but even better is to support your own immunity so that pathogens never get a foothold. If you’re prone to illnesses every winter, or if you just want to make sure you don’t become so, starting a proactive use of tonic Spagyrics soon can help keep you above those negative influences.

Medicinal mushrooms are a good choice for long-term immune support because of their amazing healing intelligence. Unlike many immune-boosting herbs, mushrooms act in balanced ways that make them suitable for long-term use, as well as for use by those who might be imbalanced by immune stimulants like Echinacea. In fact, most medicinal mushrooms have a dual action of increasing immune response when infection is present, while reducing it when needed, as with allergies or auto-immune conditions.

Our Defense Somalixir is a powerful combination of several medicinal mushrooms, including Chaga and Birch Polypore, which are immune-balancing as we would expect from our fungal allies, while also being excellent anti-inflammatories. These mushrooms are supported by Snow Lotus, which is not a mushroom, but acts in similarly intelligent ways. An energy and vitality tonic, Snow Lotus has been researched for cancer treatment, and is an herb we rely on for the quick feeling of vitality and wellness it gives.

Coming back to the plant kingdom, another herb we recommend for all-season immune support is Astragalus. This Chinese tonic root is used to strengthen the “wei Qi”, the protective force around your body that wards off negative influences, from infections and pathogens to allergens and toxins. Our Astragalus Spiritualized Essence is perfect to use when you’re feeling run down, traveling, around someone who is already sick, or any time you think your own defenses might be a bit weak.

Since this season’s health needs can be complex, besides this sale on immunity support, we also have Spagyrics for digestive health on sale, as well as specials for better mood and emotional balance.
