• Restorative and Nutritive Tonics

Speaker: David Winston, RH (AHG) In every herbal tradition, there are herbs used to help prevent illness, restore overall health and tonify the body. In Ayurveda they are known as rasayanas, in TCM, kidney yang tonics, Qi tonics or blood (xue) tonics and in the West they get lumped into the category of adaptogens. The problem with calling them adaptogens is that many of these herbs, such as amla fruit, astragalus, nettle seed, goji berry, sea buckthorn or processed rehmannia do not fit the definition of an adaptogen, so what are they? I propose calling them restorative tonics. In this class we discuss the restorative tonic materia medica, and mineral or nutrient-rich herbs that enhance bone density, improve the integrity of the skin, hair, nails, and teeth, and provide easily absorbable magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, iodine, potassium and other essential nutrients.
