St Francis Fungafect
(Pau d`Arco Combo)
Fungafect has been formulated with a view to its specific anti-infective properties. The ingredients in this formula have hundreds of years of traditional use behind them. Modern clinical and laboratory work confirms that they effectively address the following conditions:
* Yeast infections, including vaginal and oral thrush and systemic Candidiasis (infections with Candida albicans)
The herbs in this formula work together in a well-matched synergy, each with its complementary and reinforcing strengths. As the lead ingredient, pau d`arco is particularly effective against fungal and yeast infections. Paracress shares a similar antifungal potency, while Oreganum Essence contributes a uniquely powerfully antiseptic action to the formula. The marked antibiotic aspects of usnea provide a further reinforcement of the formula`s healing purpose. Finally, nettle tops help to purge the blood of the impurities that collect as a result of yeast and fungal infections. When faced with such ailments, consider our carefully formulated Fungafect as a natural therapeutic alternative.
Systemic fungal infection has been implicated in the etiology of a number of complaints. These include: food allergies, digestive problems, fungal skin infections, low sex drive, immune disorders, joint and muscle pain, headaches, menstrual irregularities, chronic sinusitis, recurrent ear infections, asthma, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, depression, schizophrenia, and others.
Systemic yeast is a result of the overgrowth of pathogenic Candida albicans in the gastrointestinal tract. This often results from the use of antibiotics, birth control pills, or cortisone, as well as diets rich in refined food and carbohydrates.
Administration: 20-75 drops (0.7-2.5 ml) three to four times daily, in a mouthful of water, on an empty stomach
Contra-indications and Cautions:
Do not use if pregnant or breastfeeding. Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you are taking blood-thinning medications, if you suffer from a bleeding disorder, or if you have heart or kidney diseases. In rare cases, nettle leaf and oregano may cause allergic reactions in susceptible individuals.
A NOTE ON TINCTURES
Tinctures are more readily absorbed by the body and have a high degree of bio-availability. As well, they have a long shelf life.
Sometimes people ask us why tinctures are alcohol-based. There are very good reasons. Alcohol is critically important in the extraction of an herb`s medicinal ingredients. It also helps to stabilize and preserve them. Alcohol is the ideal carrier substance, conveying the therapeutic goodness of the herb to the body. In itself, too, science has proven that alcohol enhances the immune system and its defences.
As for the amount of alcohol taken in an average dose of tincture, you`ll be surprised to learn that it`s about the same as what you`d find in an overly ripe banana!
Tinctures remain the most practical way to take advantage of the amazing, health-giving power of herbs.

My patients have experienced such dramatic results from your products...
I have been in practice since 1991, and I believe that I have been a customer of St. Francis Herb Farm for that long as well. My patients have experienced such dramatic results from your products, that I have never had a reason to even consider another supplier for tinctures. I wouldn`t even know where to begin in choosing a particular favorite product.
Your Ear Oil worked `on contact` with my patients, which includes my own children. Your Oregano Oil out-performs antibiotics on resistant infections. Your Calendula Cream works as good as cortisone. Most of all, I regularly experience success with your various tinctures with my cancer patients (my special area of interest).
When products are high quality, patients get results, and that makes me a very happy naturopath.
