The main organs of the human body must be continuously detoxified. The treatments will be applied at the level of the following organs: stomach, small and large intestines, kidneys, liver, lungs and skin. The lymphatic system plays a very important part.
During the detoxification period, a careful determination must be made of the medicinal herbs that will be administered so that the treatment should not disturb the functions of another organ or system and so that they should work both upon the tissues involved and upon the whole body in a beneficent way.
Against the intestinal mucous tissue, settle residues of fecal matters, deposits that predispose to constipation, malabsorption, gastric neurosis etc. These residues also bias the growth of various types of pathogen microorganisms, offering them a favorable environment. In only one year, millions of microorganisms gather in the area of the stomach and of the small intestine. Unless they are removed from the body, there will be a steady focus for any kind of disease, even for various types of cancer as well. The human body’s health starts from the areas of the stomach, of the small and of the large intestines. Their cleanliness is essential for the balance of the body.
Kidneys are vital organs because they perform the continuous filtration and circulation of the liquids in the body. In order to ensure that they work within optimum parameters, they must be detoxified at least once every 6 months. The liver is the body’s chemical laboratory; it filters the entire amount of blood and it is prone to intoxication, as are the intrahepatic ducts, too (they drain the bile into the gall bladder); these ducts grow narrower because of residual deposits and they need constant monitoring.
With every expiration, tens of thousands of toxins deposited in the body are eliminated through the lungs. Therefore, physical exercise of any kind is important: it helps eliminating the toxins and purifying the body. Skin plays a protective part, but it is also an important organ in the procedures of daily detoxification; millions of toxins are eliminated through skin every day.
Through the lymphatic system are eliminated the aged, dysfunctional or cancerous cells from the body. The detoxification procedures contribute to the regeneration of the human body and restore its healthy condition. However, the human body is very reactive to regeneration treatments. The detoxification and slimming diets must be properly scheduled and dosed, so that they should contain all the minerals and the vitamins that a body needs. Any such treatment must be performed under the guidance of the specialist in traditional medicine, who will draw the stages of the treatment, in accordance with the patient’s health condition and with his or her present affections.
The ageing process starts at cellular level and it affects every organ. This process develops in each organ differently. The organs lose energy at a different speed, not all of them simultaneously. The masters in traditional medicine know this truth and therefore they approach the treatment in the order of the priorities and depending on how much each organ is affected.
During the treatment, it is recommendable that the patient should monitor the acidity level of his or her urine using pH paper (litmus). Where the pH of urine is higher than 6.8, there is a renal dysfunction, but it can easily be treated.
The various foods must be consumed in a rational way and in the amounts prescribed by the traditional medicine specialist. A healthy diet comprises salads of various kinds, rich in chlorophyll; they ensure purification of the blood. Chlorophyll has a beneficent action upon the entire body, but mainly it helps treating respiratory infections, by neutralizing the intoxication factors: cigarette smoke, noxae and dust. Sea fruits are used to balance the thyroid metabolism. Onion and garlic are essential foods in fighting ageing.
Water cleans the blood and all the organs of the human body. Natural juices, prepared at home and consumed fresh, vitaminize the body and – together with water – they improve cerebral oxygenation. Enzymes and vitamins are important factors in the age-stopping process. Similarly, minerals are essential in restoring human balance.
Where the level of enzymes, vitamins and minerals is stable, affections such as arthritis or osteoporosis cannot occur. Arthritis occurs where there is lack of calcium, magnesium and electrolytes. Osteoporosis is the result of minerals “leakage” from the skeletal system; it occurs where there is a mineral deficiency in the human blood.
The medicinal herb extracts, necessarily combined in a proper formula, are the ones that can repair any kind of functional disorder, especially the immune one. For instance, FO-TI-TIEN formula is made up of a group of Chinese herbs that rejuvenate the endocrine system and maintain the genital system in the best shape for the human existence. This formula also helps regenerating the nervous cell; moreover, it purifies the blood and the cardiovascular system as well. The formula is used especially in the Chinese and the Tibetan traditional medicine, but there are phytotherapeutical formulas and herbal combinations equally efficient in the Egyptian, the Indian and the Balkanic medicine, too.
In combination with other herbs, garlic is a shield against heart and liver diseases. This formula is also used with prophylactic purpose, to prevent any type of cancer. The formula has antiviral, antimicrobial and anti-parasitic properties. It strengthens greatly the immune system and gives force to the human body to fight the degenerative processes.
The formulas of medicinal herbs which contain Ginkgo Biloba among others are very efficient, because this herb is renowned for its regenerating action and for its capacity of refreshing the blood, but especially for improving cerebral oxygenation.
In combination with other herbs, GINSENG has proven its efficiency in rejuvenation treatment for tens of years. It has a strongly aphrodisiac action and it helps restoring the functional balance of almost all systems in the human body. It is believed and it has been proven that this herbal mixture strengthens lust. In combination with other herbs, red GINSENG is a powerful aphrodisiac; it has a violent effect and therefore such treatments are not prescribed to persons over 60 years of age.
The herbal combination containing American GINGSENG, which is cold (it gives a sensation of coolness in the body), is used to fight internal infectious focuses. It is also administered to balance the digestive functions at gastric level, the renal circulation and for the general reinvigoration of the body.

The effects of GOTU-KOLA herb have been studied for thousands of years. The elephants prefer it and countless studies have demonstrated the impressive memorizing capacity of these animals.
In longevity and age-stopping treatments they also use hormone DHEA (secreted by the adrenal cortex). To synthesize and preserve this hormone there is a special mixture of herbs that helps, containing CAPCARILA. To clean skin and pores, they use in the bath water certain herbal mixtures very well prepared. The formulas containing CAPCARILA, in combination with hot or cold water, clean the skin and the pores. (In order that the effects should be the desired ones, these must be used taking into account the advice from specialists in traditional medicine).
The herbal mixtures containing LAVANDULA OFFICINALIS will certainly treat insomnia and agitation. With hydroalcoholic extracts from this herb, you will rub the shoulders continuously for 15-25 minutes, until the treated person returns to the normal condition.
