Talker on Whole Body Herb Tonic Tune-up (Updated 6-16-2008)
Been almost ten years since I last made a batch of the Whole Body Herb Tonic. Gradually that batch was used up and I needed to reorder some missing herbs. Well one thing led to another, and just never got around to it. Well I did just place an order to the tune of $120.00. Expensive for now, but makes for a lot of fast moving batches. The overall action of this blend results in every gland, nerve, muscle, vein, artery, organ and bone getting fed the vital nutrients for rejuvenation and regeneration to take place. Batches are made in small quantities and as each small batch is used up, I may or may not adjust the next batch mix by adding another herb, or reducing quantities of certain herbs, according to my bodies reactions. That’s the beauty of being able to fine tune and adjust the Whole Body Herb Tonic to my needs. How do I know my needs you ask? My gauge is, how long my energy levels last in any given day. The minor ache from cutting grass or using the snow blower that don’t dissipate fast enough for me. Those little things that make a day enjoyable, that make moving about at an advanced maturity level, a welcome pleasure. Those listed here are safe enough for sustained use. Of course if you do try any of this, you do so at your own risk, nor am I making any claims about what these herbs do for anyone else. This formulation, by the way is not an original by me, it originates long before my time.
There are a few herbs not listed here, that are also used, but that’s a minor issue, the basic group of importance is listed.
While I do fill capsules, will experiment making a liquid batch.

Wow, did a one to one mix for starters, teaspoon as the measure. Even at this small amount one has a few days of tasting trials, considering there are 21 herbs. .Have to figure a way to some what powder the Quassia chips for what I’m trying. All was going fine until the 130,000 shu red pepper was opened and one teaspoon full was ready to be dropped into the mix container. My Babbler yelped with a warning, “that is waaay to much for such a small mix”. Thought for a moment , and decided to go ahead with that amount anyway. What the heck it’s a one to one for 21 herbs, isn’t it? I had, as I generally do, already tasted all the herbs, for any possible allergic reactions. So when all were carefully doled out, one level teaspoon full of each, I did what I also always do. Spooned out a quarter teaspoon of the herb mix, and pop into my my mouth. Sure enough, Babbler was right. Whoo whee, that tied the back of my eyeballs into knots and gave rise to a nice wave of flame hot throughout the body. As a tea or a vodka based menstruum, this would have been “not to bad”. Doing this with a powder though, is another story. You got to be either “nuts” or keenly interested in things of this nature. To my credit though, am keenly interested. So more as this trial experiment unfolds.
