The Herbs of Quintessence, 3: Andrographis by Dr Sarah Carnes

Andrographis paniculata is most often called andrographis, or most descriptively: “King of Bitters,” a translation from one of its many common names in India, where it has been in regular use for thousands of years. It is one of the few treatments, herbs or otherwise, that crosses the blood-brain barrier and treats bacterial (including spirochetal/Lyme) [...]

Update to Folate by Dr. Tristin Wallace

For many years, our vitamins and our foods have contained folic acid, the synthetic form of folate. Folate is a crucial nutrient from the B Vitamin family. It is needed for correct nerve, brain, and spinal function. Supplementation with Folic Acid over the years has been well meaning and especially helpful for preventing birth defects, [...]

The Herbs of Quintessence, Part 2: Smilax by Sarah Carne

The smilax that we use, Smilax glabra, is a cousin to the better known sarsaparilla, Smilax regelii and others of eastern America, used in traditional root beer formulas mostly to make them foamy. Like other traditionally consumed roots though, it has important medicinal properties. Rarely are herbs used just for flavor or some other single [...]


The Herbs of Quintessence, Part 1: Japanese Knotweed by Dr Sarah Carnes

Quintessence, produced by Biopure, is one of the main herbal treatments for Lyme disease that we use at SHI.

Liver Flukes – What Are They, How Do You Get Them? by Dr. Nicol Giandomenico

Parasites are infective organisms that can live within a human host and wreak havoc on their health. Here in the Western world I believe most people think that parasites only exist in under developed countries and that we don’t necessarily have to worry about them here in the United States. Contrary to that belief, some [...]

Yarrow Infused Castor Oil for Scar Prevention by Dr. Sarah Carnes

Yarrow, scientifically named Achillea millefolium, has been used for millennia for trauma: in open wounds, to staunch bleeding, for bruises, and to repair blood vessels  large and small. It’s very effective for this, but it would be an injustice to say that’s all it does. It has many other uses all over the body, and [...]

Why Use Ozone Therapy? by Dr. Sarah Carnes

Dr. Klinghardt and the doctors he’s trained at Sophia Health Institute® and other clinics have been using ozone therapeutically for years. It’s an interesting but puzzling treatment for patients to encounter at first, because a relatively small number of doctors use it worldwide, so many don’t know why you would use it. It costs very [...]
