Fall is just around the corner and I have been asked to choose two tinctures to help you regain or remain healthy as the calendar hurdles toward cold weather when we will be spending more time indoors.
Two things come to mind when I think about spending the winter months inside:
1) We can look forward to more colds from breathing recycled dry air that dehydrates our nasal passages. We also come in contact with germs and bacteria, which grow freely in the warm climate.
2) We do not get the full spectrum light that we get from being in the sun and this causes many to come down with a depression called SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)
To prevent the flu and colds that are all too abundant in the cold months I suggest Endocrine Strengthener
. It will support, and balance the immune system using herbs such as pau d’ arco, ginger, kelp and black haw to support the adrenal and lymphatic system. I take it year round and I’ve almost forgotten what a cold is. Also use a humidifier to prevent nasal passages from becoming dry and cracked.
For depression, I make a tincture called Blissful Spirit
. It utilizes St. Johnswort and Mimosa to relieve symptoms of depression, anxiety and panic disorder. You may want to consider replacing any fluorescent bulbs in your home to full spectrum bulbs.
Enjoy beautiful sights, scents and tastes of autumn!
Love and Light, Lori Jacobs

This tincture was specially formulated to balance the emotions. The herbs in Blissful Spirit (Mimosa, Melissa, Musa and St. Johnswort) have a long and ancient history of helping people through rough emotional times of great loss or stress. Mimosa Bark is traditionally known as "he huan pi" and popularly as the "collective happiness bark". Lemon Balm (Melissa) has a calming effect on the neurological system and Musa is used to increase serotonin levels.

For autoimmune disorders – alopecia totalis
Endocrine Strengthener fortifies the immune system by nourishing the endocrine glands. It has been very helpful for those with alopecia totalis and highly recommended for anyone fighting a Candida overgrowth. This formula can also be to ward off colds and flu when taken at the first signs. Endocrine Strengthener is highly recommended for anyone suffering from any form of autoimmune disorder such as Alopecia Totalis; Lupus; arthritis; chronic fatigue; Epstein Barr and Crohn’s. Alopecia Areata, alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis are autoimmune disorders in which the immune system attacks health hair follicles causing baldness that ranges from patchy bald spots to total loss of body hair.
Note: At the first sign of cold or flu take 5-10 eyedroppers full 2-3 times daily for 2-4 days. Judge the proper amount based on your size and condition of your immune system.

What to Expect When Taking
Endocrine Strengthener for Alopecia
Endocrine Strengthener is an herbal tincture that balances the immune system. If you read my story on my website, you probably know that it cured my Alopecia Totalis (loss of hair, eyebrows and eyelashes). Since then I have enormous success with my clients. I recommend giving it at least three to six months of consistent doses to give your immune system a chance to normalize.
Endocrine Strengthener comes in a four oz bottle and the dose is 1 dropper (ONE SQUEEZE OF THE BULB) per 50 lbs, of body weight 2 times daily (usually morning and evening). If for some reason you miss a dose, simply double the next dose. One bottle lasts about a month for 150 lb person at the normal dose. Please read all the literature that comes with your order.
For the first week it is suggested to double the normal dose to help jump-start your immune system.
I would say that the success rate of those who have stayed in touch with me and have been consistent in their doses is about 80-90 percent.
Some people show results in the first month but I suggest taking Endocrine Strengthener for at least three to six months to give it a chance to rebuild your immune system. Children seem to recover quicker than adults do and women generally recover quicker than men. Also you should consider the degree of alopecia you have and adjust the time accordingly.
If you have Alopecia Areata [patchy balding] give it at least 3 months. If you have Alopecia Totalis [no hair, eyebrows or eyelashes] give it at least 5 months. If you have Alopecia Universalis [no hair anywhere on the body] give it at least 6 months. Of not everyone will fall into these categories as we are all individuals.
You should start to see hair growing after this time. You will probably notice that you have more energy, fewer colds and generally just feel better due to your improved immune system. But please keep in touch with me and let me know how you are feeling; though some cases can be stubborn; there are things we can do to tweak your recovery.
This really works; try to be patient; one gentleman took 9 months before hair started showing but he had the most severe form, alopecia universalis.
When the hair first comes in it is light and wispy but as it grows it turns back to its natural thickness and color.
You should continue to take Endocrine Strengthener if you see re-growth. Remember that it is not just growing hair but it is restoring your compromised immune system. This takes time.
For anyone who has had alopecia for any length of time and has tried many treatments that ultimately failed, it is hard to believe that anything will work. I know because after 11 years I had given up hope that I would EVER have hair again.
So I ask you to trust the treatment because it works.
