Aloe 22 (Aquilaria 22)
Aloe 22 treats intestinal parasites and other intestinal diseases. The formula balances dispersing, eliminative forces with contracting and building forces, thus it is useful for a broad range of applications. The black walnut (juglans nigra), is a native tree of North America. Black walnuts are smaller, harder, and more pungent than the English walnuts sold in grocery stores. The hulls without the meaty kernels inside are used in herbal medicine. Black walnut trees exude a sap that discourages growth of competing plants over their roots. Black walnut hulls contain juglone, a chemical that is antibacterial, antiviral, antiparasitic, and a fungicide. The hulls also contain tannins, iodine, vitamin C and zinc. Tannins act as a defense mechanism in plants against pathogens. The antihelmintic properties of tannins have been shown in scientific studies. Tannins are described to be antibacterial, and anti-diarrheic. Iodine is widely used as an antiseptic in medicine. It works by attaching itself to the pathogenic bacteria and thereby killing them.
Cardamon (sha ren) treats abdominal pain and distension, and relieves intestinal spasms. It controls diarrhea caused by infection, but also treats constipation due to weak intestinal function. Astringent herbs such as mume (wu mei), terminalia (he zi), pomegranate (shi liu pi), nutmeg (rou dou kou), rubia (qian cao gen) treat diarrhea caused by infections, regulate intestinal secretions, and treat ulcers of the intestinal mucosa. Anthelmintics such as quisqualis (shi jun zi), omphalia (lei wan), torreya (fei zi), ulmus (wu yi), zanthoxylum (chuan jiao), and aloe vera (luhui) attack parasites in the bowels. Qi tonics such as codonopsis (dang shen), white atractylodes (bai zhu), and licorice (gan cao), and digestive herbs such as ginger (gan jiang) enhance immunity and improve absorption of nutrients.
