True Word Apothecary is the culmination of years of collaboration, discipleship, and cooperation between master herbalists, guild members and Buddhist masters. We present the skillful means and potent medicines of the mountain ascetics of Japan and Korea who have honed their medicinal skills to levels unknown outside of small circles of devoted clients and students. They have, in turn, the legacy of many Tantric lineages from Tibet, those extinct in China and transmitted only to Japan, as well as enshrined in the mountains of Korea. These are the most potent herbs, mushrooms and seaweeds, the secret precious nectar pills of these esoteric traditions. We are pleased to release the medicines that fund the publications of the most direct methods of healing and energetic cultivation and inner alchemy that we use personally in the healing protocols. These are handcrafted, artisan produced, organic, chemical free harvests from pristine waters and mountains, in small batches for the utmost quality and purity.
Our first offering is an exquisite powder: Okinawan Fucoidan Plus Organic Agaricus Blazei (that can be encapsulated for a modest fee upon request though we enjoy using the powder directly) of brown seaweed extracted from Mozuku that contains the most Fucoidan. Fucoidan is a marine-based carotenoid with exciting health properties. It is a sulfated polysaccharide contained in popular marine foods in Okinawa, such as seaweed kelp, wakame seaweed, Mozuku seaweed, and hijiki seaweed. Especially brown seaweed extracted from Mozuku that contains more Fucoidan. Fucoidan has several anti-carcinogenic properties, from direct cytotoxic effects on diseased cells to inhibition of carcinogenesis by apoptosis, angiogenesis, local infiltration, and metastasis. Studies have proven its uses in many things but we are not allowed to make any medical claims and suggest that those suffering from severe and terminal conditions investigate the scientific literature. These are the substances that if we were in the worst way, fearful or had to pick what to take as either last chance or preventing medicines and we personally have healed ourselves with their use. Most serious ailments are conditions that are never healed but treated and corrected through resolving imbalances. The Japanese have the lowest cases of certain conditions to do their ingestion of these herbs with lifestyle such as caloric restriction, detox and even meditation and worldview.
Fucoidan appears to be important in insulin signaling, the primary biological pathway of aging. Recent studies of Fucoidan have shown that it has a significant hypoglycemic effect. The fucoidan-supplemented group also had significantly reduced weight gain and less fat in the liver and epididymis than the unsupplemented group. Fucoidan-supplemented mice also showed significant reductions in plasma triglyceride, total cholesterol, and low-density lipoprotein levels. Fatty liver induced by a high-fat diet improved in the fucoidan-supplemented group.
Agaricus Blazei Murill is one of the types of medical mushroom from the Brazilian rain forest. It is used for the prevention of a range of diseases, including infection, allergy, and deathly terminal conditions traditionally. Agaricus Blazei M is rich in the immunomodulating polysaccharides, β-glucans. It has been shown to have antitumor, anti-infection, and antiallergic, anti-asthmatic properties in mouse models, in addition to anti-inflammatory effects in inflammatory bowel disease patients. These effects are mediated through the mushroom’s stimulation of innate immune cells, such as monocytes, NK cells, and dendritic cells, and the amelioration of a skewed Th1/Th2 balance and inflammation. According to NPO Research Institute of Fucoidan in Japan, when fucoidan and Agaricus are mixed, it will significantly increase NK cell activity. Thus, they can obtain higher effects of immune-boosting activity. Consequently, higher immunity is very important to destroy cells that replicate out of control in a diseased manner. Again we make no claims but suggest those interested and familiar with the effects of medicinal seaweeds and mushrooms to investigate the symbiotic relationship between these two potent power herbs/superfoods. These are two gently extracted and combined blends for your radiant health.
