Seven Forests

ITM (Institute for Traditional Medicine, Portland, Oregon) developed the Seven Forests brand of herb formulas in 1986 for use in its clinical facilities and also for prescription by practitioners who follow similar treatment protocols. The formulas are available only to licensed health care providers who are already educated in the field of

Traditional Chinese Medicine. Many of the Seven Forests formulas are unique, combining classic Chinese herbal formulas with modern information and research into herb actions and biochemical properties.

 

Depending upon the specific formulation and the nature of the individual herb ingredients, the Seven Forests herb tablets are prepared from powdered herbs or dried hot-water extracts, or a combination of the two. The herb materials, obtained from China, are compressed into tablets (there are also small amounts of gum resin, cellulose, and stearate used to make the tablets). The tablets are bottled in units of 100 tablets; additionally, some formulas are available in bottles with 250 tablets and a few formulas with bottles of 420 tablets; the larger size bottles are provided for convenience and costs savings.

 

With 20 years in the field and at the forefront of the industry, Seven Forests formulas provide balanced, effective, and easy-to-use herbal medicines you can rely on. Jade River Healing Arts Center proudly carries this exceptional line of Chinese herbal formulas.

 

Pine Mountain

ITM developed the Pine Mountain brand of herb formulas in 1996. These are replacements for popular patent remedies, and resolve the problems inherent in most imported patents such as concerns about inclusion of undesired ingredients (e.g., drugs, heavy metals, endangered species, toxic herbs) or improper labeling (e.g., incomplete ingredients list, mislabeled herbs). Pine Mountain herb tablets are prepared from either extracted herbs or powdered herbs or a combination of the two. The herb materials, obtained from China, are compressed into tablets of 525 mg each. The tablet coatings, made of modified cellulose, are colored with natural colors to yield white, yellow, or red tablets (color coded by the type of formulation). Pine Mountain formulas provide safe and effective formulations of popular, effective patent remedies.

White Tiger

ITM developed the White Tiger brand of formulas in 1993 for use in its clinical facilities and for prescription by practitioners who follow similar treatment protocols. The formulas rely on Western concepts of using dietary supplements and herbs, but were designed to be utilized within a Chinese medical health care approach.

 

The name White Tiger was chosen because, in the Chinese system of classification, the white tiger is the representative of the West. The tiger is also representative of the potential stored within. A characteristic of the tiger is its stealth (remaining hidden), and the silent crouch that it holds (for as long as necessary) before striking vigorously. The formulations produced under the White Tiger label represent a Western approach to natural health care that store a huge amount of potential in a deceptively small space (compared to the volume of crude preparations).

White Tiger formulations may incorporate vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, hormones, and other substances that have been determined to have a positive health benefit, as well as utilizing Chinese herbs and some Western herbs. They are made as easy to swallow oval tablets of about 1 gram each, usually taken only 1 or 2 tablets at a time. Most of the ingredients are highly concentrated. White Tiger formulas and supplements provide effective delivery of the nutrients and other substances that your body needs.

 

Nutritional Supplements

Nordic Naturals

 

Nordic Naturals’ core business is EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids) where the only focus is to deliver ultra pure, fresh and health-promoting omega oils that taste great, and are free from environmental toxins.

Nordic Naturals manufacture all products in Norway, where they adhere to the highest manufacturing standards guaranteeing exceptional product purity and freshness levels. Their quality level exceeds both the Norwegian Medicinal and European Pharmacopoeia Standards. They also adhere to the GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) facility standard, and utilize a proprietary nitrogen environment to achieve industry leading freshness levels.

Their products are molecularly distilled utilizing the latest distillation technology and yielding positively zero trans fats. This process guarantees the removal of potential heavy metals (lead, mercury, etc.), PCB, and dioxins. As an example, Nordic Naturals’ dioxin level is documented to be 0.4 particles per trillion which is estimated to be the lowest in the world. Low heat and ultra short residence time is used during the distillation process to ensure positively no damage to the oil. A final enzyme process is applied to ensure a completely repeat free (burp free) product. This is why children and teenagers of all ages love these products.

 

Nordic Naturals uses only wild fish (arctic cod, mackerel, sardines, and anchovies), that are low on the food chain (to minimize potential impurities) and are naturally high in Omega 3 EFAs. All byproduct of Nordic Naturals’ fish oil is used for animal or human consumption. Consequently, no raw material contains antibiotics or other impurities found in some fish feed, as all raw material is caught in the wild.

Nordic Naturals is a research driven company, where an array of leading research institutions are using their products to identify the effect of EFAs on various medical conditions. Nordic Naturals products are preferred due to exceptional freshness and purity levels, and great taste.

We are proud to offer these exceptional pharmaceutical-grade and highly effective EFA’s. Our practioners will help you select the blend that is right for you, and your current health goals.

Zheng Gu Shui

 

Zheng Gu Shui (literally: rectify bones liquid) is a widely used topical therapy for injuries. It is produced by Guangxi Yulin Pharmaceutical Factory. The factory was founded in 1956 and has since become one of China’s fifty top-rated pharmaceutical industrial enterprises. The production processes meet the Chinese and Australian Good Manufacturing Practices standards. The products of this factory are popular throughout China for their dependable quality and remarkable effect, and they are exported to more than 20 countries. In 1997, the factory was given the honorary title of “advanced group of the national medical system” by the state personnel ministry and state pharmaceutical administration.

The formula is derived from extracts of 10 Chinese herbs in a water-alcohol base and is indicated for backache, arthritis, strains, bruises, and sprains, to be applied 3-4 times per day. We have found this liniment to be especially effective for relieving muscular pain when heat (such as a heating pad or hot flax pack) is applied over the area where the liniment has been applied. Zheng Gu Shui is an effective, safe, topical pain-relieving liniment.

 

White Flower Analgesic Balm

 

White Flower Analgesic Balm is known throughout the world. The product was developed in 1927 by Gan Geog Eng, a resident of Singapore. Originally made only for private use, but liked so much by family friends and acquaintances who tried the pain-relieving liquid, Mr. Gan was persuaded to produce it on a commercial basis. It is one of the most popular products in the Far East, and now, here in the U.S.

 

White Flower Oil is a blend of several essential oils and active ingredients from plant oils including: wintergreen, eucalyptus, peppermint, menthol, camphor, and lavender. The oils are imported from France, China and Australia, and meet the standards set forth by the British Pharmacopoeia, Chinese Pharmacopoeia, and the International Fragrance Association, (also known as the Research Institute of Fragrance Material). The product meets Good Manufacturing Standards of Australia and is certified by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

 

 

White Flower Oil is indicated for temporary relief of aches and pains of the muscles and joints, such as problems of backache, arthritis, sprains, bruises, and strains; it has also been found useful for headache and neck ache. Typically, it is applied three times a day. The product comes in several bottle sizes, the common ones being the large 20 ml bottle, and the tiny 2.5 ml bottle, ideal for carrying around for use at any time. This product is especially well-suited for arthritis pain, and we have many patients who rely on its very effective pain-relieving properties.
