The super herbs in our blend

Plantain

Plantago spp.

Plantain presents a unique dichotomy as a gut-soother that both moistens with mucilage and tones up tissues with astringent tannins. This healing ally helps support the urinary system and GI tract, promoting mucous membrane health and integrity.*

The herbs within this blend are a mix of calming and relaxing "nervines" that soothe and unwind physical tension, as well as "Shen" tonics that reconnect us to our spirit.* In Chinese Medicine, the heart houses our Shen, which can be translated as our consciousness or soul. A healthy and grounded Shen governs our ability to lead from our heart’s true calling and purpose – to extend beyond the Self and form loving relationships with those around us.

About the

Formula

Why healthy gut permeability is key

Supporting the health and integrity of your gut lining is essential, especially when it comes to maintaining a healthy inflammatory response within the GI tract and immune system. 

The importance of proper permeability and intestinal lining integrity is two-fold: a) healthy permeability ensures that the gut lining can let the right things in helping us to absorb minerals and nutrients from the foods we consume. b) proper permeability also allows the gut to keep the right things out: preventing toxins, allergens, and microbes from gaining access to the bloodstream. Incredibly, despite the need for an essentially impenetrable defense, the intestinal lining is only one cell thick to account for the need to accommodate the exchange of nutrients and hydration. Thus, protecting and supporting this mucosal lining is even more crucial in today’s world -- especially in the face of the many assaults, our guts may be exposed to, from processed foods to pollutants and irritants. 

Mucilaginous menders like Calendula and Marshmallow help to lubricate and protect the gut lining, maintaining intestinal integrity providing deeply restorative support for those who need it most. By providing optimal soothing and repairing gastrointestinal support, this blend promotes healthy bowel function, the normal repair of the GI mucosal lining, proper intestinal function, and healthy nutrient absorption.*

The moisturizing menders

We’ve all had to deal with dry skin externally on our body and face during an especially dry winter that no skincare regimen seems to even touch… but what happens when the skin inside of us becomes parched and dehydrated, too? While this may sound like a strange concept, the same epithelial cells that make up your skin can be actually found in the lining of your intestines. 

If you’re reading this right now and realize it’s been a minute since you’ve had a sip of water, you’re not alone — it’s extremely common to experience a dry ‘tissue state’ within the intestinal tract due to hydration habits, microbiome imbalances, mineral status, and under-functioning digestive health as a whole due to processed foods, gut irritants, allergens, pollutants and more. 

When it feels like no matter how much water you drink, your tissues and cells just aren’t quenched, menders and soothers like Calendula come in to moisturize, rebalance and ‘loosen the soil.’ Think about what happens when you pour liquid on dry, cracking earth. Like the desert, it just runs off, as so much moisture has been drained that it can no longer hold proper hydration. As you moisturize and soothe the gut with healers like Calendula, Marshmallow, and even Plantain Leaf, your cells become able to absorb and respond to the water you drink. 

Plantain Leaf is especially unique, as it contains both mucilage (coating, soothing, protective) and tannins (toning to gut junctions) -- moistening dry, dehydrated tissue while also supporting optimal intestinal integrity.*

The story
behind the formula

The Healer was born out of a universal need — one that is potent for both myself and my community in order to address the many assaults on gut health that we deal with in today’s world. A gut-soothing blend has been in the works for ages, but has taken its sweet time as it was always meant to be a tea. While tinctures and capsules are so important to my apothecary because of their potency and ease of use, intestinal mucosal lining support requires a specialized delivery method that is able to reach all the nooks and crannies of the GI tract that need love and care.

Tea is uniquely supportive to the gut lining, as it allows mucilaginous, coating, and toning phytochemicals to reach a wide surface area, delivering plant compounds directly to areas that need assistance. The nature of warm, soothing tea is part of the remedy itself, as warm liquids promote gut microbiome balance and deep tissue health and hydration.*
