Astragalus is rich in polysaccharides which are basically the main nutrient that feeds our bodies. Astragalus is well-known (and documented) for supporting of T-cell function and overall immune strength at a very deep level (bone marrow reserves) and is highly acclaimed as probably the most important of all deep immune tonics. Patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation live twice as long and are more resistant to secondary infections when using Astragalus. It can help ameliorate bone marrow depression and gastrointestinal toxicity resulting from those two protocols. It stimulates interferon production, macrophage activity and antibody response and also inhibits free radicals. Astragalus reduces T suppressor cells and enhances the function of the adrenal cortex. It helps to build the blood and lowers blood sugar levels in diabetics.
  Astragalus is also known to increase strength and vitality. It helps in the elimination of toxins thus promoting the healing of damaged tissue. It supports liver and spleen function and protects the liver against chemical damage caused by chemotherapy. Astragalus helps to normalize blood pressure.

  • Astragalus is a strong immune-enhancing herb and superior tonic, thus aids in recovery from illness and surgery. It combats fatigue by nourishing exhausted adrenals.
  • Astragalus is an adaptogen herb which as been credited with long life of the cell. Research has been done to show that Astragalus increases the strength of T-cells, the white blood cells of the body that attack the invaders that cause disease.
  • Urine flow is improved by Astragalus, thereby reducing the potential of infection predominantly in the bladder.
  • Astragalus is an anti-clotting agent and has vaso-dilating properties, helping prevent coronary heart disease and improving circulation.
  • Astragalus has been demonstrated to increase energy by the reduction of toxicity in the liver. As such, it acts as a heart tonic, which lowers blood pressure, dilates blood vessels and increases endurance to fatigued hearts.
  • Astragalus increases the flow of bile and digestive fluids.

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on powerful cholesterol-lowering drugs for the rest of their lives."
         -- Dean Ornish, M.D.

A balanced diet and regular physical activity are the building blocks of good health. Poor eating habits and too little physical activity can lead to overweight and related health problems. By eating right and being active, you can enjoy good health and remain active throughout your life. Whether you are trying to maintain good health, or trying to get well from cancer, you should take a look at your eating habits and try to improve them. Unfortunately, most people in the western world, including many so-called vegetarians, get little or no real nutrition. With the abundance of food available to us, this should not be the case.

8 Rules to Live By

Beloved, I wish above all things, that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. 3 John 2.

Education in the divine principles of health have never been needed more than today! There have been many wonderful advances in science and technology, but there is an alarming increase in disease and sickness due to destructive habits and the over indulgences of our society. Today, habit and appetite are at war with nature. The results are seen in most of our lives as many experience some minor or major breakdown of their health.

God's promise still stands—if we incorporate His principles of health into our lives, then none of the diseases of this world will befall us. Listed below are God's 8 Laws of Health, taken from the "owner's manual". Click on a title to learn more.
