    The concept of an herbal adaptogen is a relatively recent one and its origin dates back to 1947 to a Soviet scientist, Nikolai Lazarev. Lazarev was searching for substances that would improve human health and performance over the long-term, without causing dependence or negative effects.

    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.

    As we come into the Thanksgiving holiday, at Bamboo Pharmacy we like to try new recipes that incorporate superfoods! While the superfood label is still under debate, we consider anything with at least 8 documented health benefits pretty darn super. So what's super about Goji Berries?

    FINALS! Just the word can trigger a stress response for many people. Most of us have experienced some level of test anxiety in our life whether it began at an early age, kicked up in High School when preparing for college admittance exams, or in college when trying to earn the challenging A. But all of that stress can actually hinder our ability to focus on the minute details required for a successful grade.

    In 2006, Acupuncturists Without Borders (AWB) launched their Military Stress Recovery Project with a single clinic using acupuncture to treat veterans. Ten years later, the program has grown to more than 30 affiliated clinics across the country, one of which operates just across the Bay in San Francisco under the name BAYVAC (Bay Area Veteran’s Acupuncture Clinic). Bamboo Pharmacy is thrilled to be a sponsor of this unique program and we recently dropped by to see their clinic in action and to share some of our herbal formulas.

    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.

    We love a good cup of tea, and with the thousands of articles talking about its health benefits, what’s not to love? But with more than 3000 varieties of tea, how do you choose what’s right for you? According to legend, the story of tea began in China in 2737 BC. The Chinese herb Master Shen Nong (“Divine Farmer”) was sitting beneath a tree boiling water for drinking when some leaves from the tree blew into the water. Shen Nong decided to try the accidentally created infusion, and a grand tradition was born. The tree was Camellia sinensis, from which we gather our tea leaves for the tea we drink today.

    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...

    Ginger is native to tropical Southern Asia (India? China? No one really knows!). What we do know is that it was used as a tonic for common ailments by Arabic, Indian and Asian healers as far back as 5,000 years ago, and as a cooking spice long before that. It has an exotic refreshing taste, perfect to sip in this all-natural homemade soda. This recipe is based on...

    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...
