    In this overstimulated world we live in, it’s easy to become stressed and overwhelmed. With mini-computers now at our fingertips in the form of cell phones, we are constantly connected to the world. The chime of a text message or a jingle from a FaceBook post make it challenging to get complete down-time even when we can manage to squeeze in a few moments to recharge. Add the ever-increasing commute times and dense traffic on the roads and you’ve got a recipe for stress and anxiety. But fear not! We have several historically proven options to help you put your world on simmer and breathe easier.

    Summer has started a few weeks early in the San Francisco Bay Area and we feel like we’re under a heat lamp! We like to stay cool with our Berry Smoothie Popsicles. Great for adults or kids alike, these cool treats are not only tasty, they’re healthy, too! Antioxidants, Vitamin C, calcium, plus probiotics make this tasty treat too good to say no to.

    What’s so “super” about superfoods? Super FoodsWe’ve all heard the term “superfood,” but what does it really mean? What makes a food “super”? Unfortunately, there’s no legal or medically recognized definition for the term, but many nutritionists would agree that a superfood is a nutrient-packed powerhouse full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and polyphenols. These foods will typically have multiple health benefits and are often low in bad fats and sugars. A cheat to help spot the nutrient packed fruits and vegetables at the grocery store?

    Many of the herbs used in our formulas can only be sourced from China where medicinal herbs have grown naturally for thousands of years. During a recent visit to China, I had the privilege of visiting the city of Bozhou in Anhui province. Bozhou is home to arguably the largest Chinese herb market in the world, where they grow nearly 165,000 acres of herbs with 1 million people engaged in the planting, processing, and distribution of herbs. I was in Bozhou with our head herb master/buyer Mr. Zhang, who travels more than 300 days out of the year meeting with farmers, inspecting crops, and collecting herb...

    Summer is an ideal time for exploring nature. Here in the Golden State, many of us may be unaware of the medicinal plants growing in the hills and forests around us. California is home to many different species of indigenous plants that were used as folk medicine since the days when only Native Americans inhabited the land...

    This Memorial Day, while we welcome in the summer season with an extra day to BBQ and play outside, let’s not forget the important reason for that extra day. Those of us that have never served can only imagine the heroic sacrifices our veterans have made. The strain and stress experienced will often take a toll in the form of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, casually referred to as PTSD. There is hope in new and innovative treatments that are constantly being discovered. Alternative therapies such as herbal supplements and acupuncture are also becoming more widely accepted as effective complementary treatments for PTSD...

    It is challenging to stay healthy during the busy holidays. The stresses of holiday preparation, the entertaining of guests, and the cooking and partaking of often rich and heavy holiday meals can lead to a condition called “food stagnation” in Chinese medicine. The first sign of which is a feeling of being overly full and uncomfortable! So how do you combat food stagnation with herbal options...

    The teapill gets its name from the way that raw herbs are low temperature brewed into a “tea” which is later formed into a small round pill called a teapill. Many of our Bamboo Pharmacy products are available in teapill form - think of a teapill like a little ball of condensed herb juice. That’s a very simplified statement, but when you think of it as molded herb extracts instead of medicine, it begins to make sense why you will sometimes need to take 8 of them at a time...
