Surprising No One...   

While immune products are selling very well,  
our biggest seller these days is
Calm Adapt
The unique David Winston RH(AHG) formula for  
people who cannot seem to relax.  
Combining calming Adaptogens with soothing Nervines,  
it helps provide a serene, calm mindset and  
improves sleep quality and mental focus. 
  • Ashwagandha - adaptogen and nervine used to reduce stress.
  • Reishi- used in Chinese medicine to "calm the shen." It is a mild adaptogen, nervine, immune amphoteric and cardiotonic. Helpful for anxi­ety, bad dreams, insomnia and stress-induced conditions.
  • Schisandra is unique - it is calming, but it gives a person a clear, focused mind. And has hepa­toprotective and immune balancing effects.
  • Fresh Oat and Linden flower - two of David's favorite nervines. Support for irritability, anxiety & emotional overreactions.

Understanding H&A's Lung Formulas 
David Winston often says herbalists treat the person, not the illness, but how does that work for off-the-shelf herbal products? David resisted the idea of selling pre-made formulas for years, but changed his mind after finding himself using similar combinations of herbs over time with good results.  
H&A formulas combine herbs targeted for conditions, but specific enough to ensure they work. Within various condition-specific categories, David has developed subcategories for various ways that conditions manifest.  
Lung Formulas - we offer 5 different formulas - herb energetics focus the formula and the name of the product indicates the condition you want to change.
