Season’s Greetings, Easter Greetings!

Dear Colleagues, Dear Customers and Dear Friends,

Throughout the day we die a little and lose strength until we have to give all up and finally lie down, go to sleep, lose consciousness. We have to give up our most fundamental human qualities: no more speaking, no more standing upright, no more thinking. Other forces take over and help so that in the morning we can rise again, a “resurgence” takes place. We are restored to our full humanity again. Alas the process needs to be repeated.

This process is similar to the tiredness that happens in the metabolism where every out-breath – the result of bodily breakdown processes that create CO2 – must be followed by an invigorating in-breath with its life bringing oxygen. This also has to be repeated. Are we doing this just “out of ourselves “ or are other elements at play here?

Isn’t it interesting that in an archetypal human day we breathe 25,920 times; that in a life time we (again archetypically) “resurge” 25,920 times and that these rhythms are coinciding with the return of the Sun to the same cosmic place it was before in 25,920 years.

We are never alone. The Earth could never live without the Sun. And what if just as the human being is not just a physical body, but has  spiritual qualities that help us to strive for higher ideals that help us to constantly resurrect (from the Latin, resurgere) something noble out of the most downtrodden situations of life, what if Nature had these higher Beings also – that repeatedly infuse us with the forces that we might be lacking at the beginning of the breath, at the beginning of the day, at the beginning of the year. What if the life giving Sun also had its Being that unites itself ever more with the Earth and its inhabitants.

This might explain why we pay so much attention at True Botanica to expose our tinctures to at least seven consecutive morning Suns. These are the impulse that we hope to have our remedies aligned with.

We wish you all the Best in this season of Resurgence of the Sun, after the first full moon after the Spring Equinox. We benefit from this Sun, a particularly Powerful one. We benefit from all the remedies that can be made, and have been made at this time, for this time.

But this Sun also benefits from our celebrating it, inviting it in, acknowledging it, not resisting it, not staying in the dark, in the tired, lost in an out-breathing. Then these forces can become ultimately not just forces of resurgence, but forces of Resurrection.

Let’s take in this special Spring Time and marvel at how much more healthy we can then be, how much more effective our medicines and nutrients can work. They help us if we help them.

Dedicated to You,

The True Botanica Team

Cartilage Complex in Easter Basket

True Botanica Ingredients in My Easter Basket?

While many are excited to decorate Easter Egg shells around this time of year, we at True Botanica are excited about egg shells year round. This is because of the important role egg shells have in two of our unique products: Cartilage Complex™ and Calcium AM-PM™.

Cartilage Complex in Easter BasketOur Cartilage Complex™ contains NEM®, the novel, patented, natural eggshell membrane. Eggshell membrane not only consists of chondroitin sulfate, glucosamine like substances but also hyaluronic acid, collagen and other proteins. NEM® has been shown to imporve join health faster than any other joint health ingredient. Check out the full product description for information.

Our Calcium  AM-PM™ contains egg shell derived calcium. This organically derived calcium has outstanding absorption and digestive tolerability as well as a fast action time. The egg shell calcium offered here is salvaged and extracted from the nearly 500,000(!) tons of egg shells that are discarded every year by the food industry. Remarkably at the end of the manufacturing process the only ecological foot print left is steam.

We wish you a very Happy Easter and best of luck on any Easter Egg hunts!

An Important Spring Message From True Botanica

Read this important Spring message from True Botanica and tell us what you think!

Dear Friends, Dear Readers,

Whether you celebrate Easter, or Passover, or just even the enduring capacity of the human race to carry Higher Ideals (a Mystery in itself), this is the time of the year when we caRepresentative of Man Imagen feel a resurgence of inner power, a sense that Life will continue and the Good will overcome.

We feel ourselves attracted to the outside, luminous, greening world of nature and from this surrounding World we feel mysteriously how a renewed strength is given to carry us forward.

This is a mighty impulse that should last the whole year until the next Spring – but does it?
