Why Herbal Remedies Work & The Top 10 Herbs to Boost Immunity

Updated: Dec 29, 2022

Do you want to know the secret to eternal youth?

Sure, everyone ages and grows another year older but what does this actually mean?

Does age determine an inevitable decline to stagnancy and isolation, or could age signify a regular incline into creativity and group vitality?

What if the aging process could be slowed and reversed?

What if chronic illnesses could be cured and the afflicted gene, switched off, turned dormant and deactivated?

What if mild infections could be prevented and easily blocked?

What if perfect health was the everyday norm and ill health was the mysterious anomaly?

A disease-free world may be an unreal fantasy for some but for others, it’s an untapped potential waiting for its time to be realized.

Until that time arrives, we can choose to find ways to clarify our understanding of nature’s laws and better understand the importance of working in symbiosis with other species who are equally dependent on Earth’s resources for survival and sustenance.

If we begin to reexamine our relationship with plants, what new insights could we unlock?

First, examine the herb.

What exactly is an herb?

According to Webster’s Dictionary, an herb is a seed-producing annual, biennial, or perennial that does not develop persistent woody tissue but dies down at the end of a growing season.

In other words, an herb is a part of a plant that functions with cyclic order and natural rhythms.

Next, find the remedy.

A remedy is any substance that corrects a system by embedding the system with an increased capacity to create patterns and detect difference.

An herbal remedy is a combination of different substances working in synergy to build self-similar patterns to stabilize the effects of entropy.

Herbs work according to the natural laws of syntropy, so what may be considered entropy in the fields of contemporary science, when viewed from the lens of a branching stem, a falling leaf, or a budding flower, in the fields of cosmic law, there is only undifferentiated syntropy, plant biology in symbiosis with human biology.

This symbiotic, syntropic relationship between humans and plants can be nurtured and extended into new domains of Next-Level Immunity.

Which herbs are best for relieving headaches?

Which herbs are best for increasing stamina?

Which herbs are best for calming anxiety?

Next-Level Immunity is achieved by understanding the power of Synchronized Networks.

Every botanical herb is home to active constituents that catalyze various chemical reactions to occur within, between and around human cells. No biological cell exists as an island. Where you find one, you find a thousand. When you find a thousand, you discover a trillion. A trillion neurons, linked as multiple, undulating waves in a single, anatomical ocean of life.

The cells work together in a collection of body systems, or Body Networks, that are in constant communication with each other, coordinated and organized by the 24/7 Information Station of The Executive-in-Charge, The Human Brain.

The brain is stationed at Network 1: Central Nervous System (CNS) where it is symbiotically paired with the spine.

Together, the brain and the spine act as an omnidirectional communication channel for synchronizing life and sustaining vitality.

In total, there are 10 Body Networks, each moving according to natural law and cosmic intelligence. Within these networks, the herbs unleash their potencies and initiate a cascading chain of chemical messengers to facilitate biomolecular healing.

10 Body Networks


Network 1:

Central Nervous System (CNS)

This network serves as the command center for the body. The brain and spine collaborate to analyze and interpret nerve signals to direct cyclical processes. It actively responds to incoming and outgoing stimuli and assists the immune system with infection resistance and illness prevention. To ensure the health of the body, it utilizes an electrical web of rapidly propagating impulses, messages wrapped in myelin sheathes, that build structural integrity for its communication stations. Network 1 is Oscillation Station where the brain diligently works to listen, record, remember, forget, correct and synchronize.

Herb Helper:

Kola Nut, Cola Acuminata (Plant Family: Sterculiaceae)

stimulates the Central Nervous System

increases alertness and counters fatigue

helps relieve migraines and headaches

Parts Used: seeds

Active Constituents: caffeine, theobromine, anthocyanin


Network 2:

Respiratory System

This system serves as the exchange network for oxygen-carbon transactions. As air contacts lungs, the blood vessels receive vital nutrients to collect and transport to organs and tissues throughout the body. This network functions in two zones, divided into two tracts: a conducting zone of inhaled gases, a respiratory zone of gas exchange, an upper respiratory tract outside the thorax and a lower respiratory tract inside the thorax.

Herb Helper:

Cedar, Cedrus Spp. (Plant Family: Pinaceae)

antiseptic and astringent

disinfectant for the respiratory tract

relieves congestion and chest infections

Parts Used: leaves, wood, essential oil

Active Constituents: essential oil, alpha-pinene


Network 3:

Circulatory System (Cardiovascular System)

This network serves as the distribution network containing short and long circuits. A short pulmonary circuit maps the route for blood to be oxygenated and delivered to arteries. A longer systemic circuit charts the path for blood to become deoxygenated and delivered to veins. These two alternating circuits are opened and closed within the heart.

Herb Helper:

Common Foxglove, Purple Foxglove, Digitalis Purpurea (Plant Family: Scrophulariaceae)

powerful remedy for heart disease

regulates the heart without the need for additional oxygen

lessens the load on the heart and allows it to beat more rhythmically

Parts Used: leaves

Active Constituent: cardiac glycosides


Network 4:

Endocrine System (Glandular System)

This system serves as the liquid-light signaling network of glands and organs. Glands secrete liquids within the body, constructing hormone highways and watery pathways for chemical messengers to regulate growth, temperature, metabolism, and various other essential functions. The hypothalamus, pituitary gland, thyroid gland, parathyroid, pancreas, gastric mucosa, adrenals, and gonads collectively engage in constant conversations, speaking through multilayered gut-brain memory channels.

Herb Helper:

Holy Thistle, Carduus Benedictus (Plant Family: Asteraceae)

bitter tonic

stimulates salivary gland, stomach, gallbladder and intestine secretions

improves flow of body liquids

Parts Used: leaves, flowering tops

Active Constituents: lignans, lactones, volatile oils


Network 5:

Immune System

This network serves as the primary defense network for the body to fortify itself. Innate immunity, created at birth, initiates inflammatory responses. Adaptive immunity, acquired by exposure, targets foreign invaders. Two levels of immunity encoding enemy patterns into long-term memory enabling the body to quickly react and protect its boundaries.

Herb Helper:

Lemon, Citrus Limon (Plant Family: Rutaceae)

prevents infections

antiseptic and antioxidant

strengthens blood vessel walls and eases stomach acidity

Parts Used: fruit, peel

Active Constituents: volatile oil, alpha-terpinene, bioflavonoids


Network 6:

Lymphatic System

This system serves as the water-filtration sanitation network for toxin removal. By draining excess fluids via lymph capillaries, plexuses, vessels and nodes, the lymph acts as a secondary defense network. It syncs with the brain and gut to filter cellular debris and detoxify the body. By clearing accumulated mucus from organs and tissues, barriers to blood flow are removed and nutrient absorption is significantly enhanced.

Herb Helper:

Wild Indigo, Baptisia Tinctoria (Plant Family: Fabaceae)

antiseptic, antimicrobial and immunostimulant

helps reduce enlarged lymph nodes

used with other detoxifying herbs like burdock to combat lymphatic problems

Parts Used: root, leaves

Active Constituents: isoflavones, coumarins, polysaccharides


Network 7:

Digestive System

This system serves as the energy-extraction-reabsorption network creating fuel for the body. Breaking down food. Building up molecules. Manufacturing proteins. The gastrointestinal tract organs and the accessory digestive organs transform extracted components into stored, usable energy that generates heat. It increases cellular voltage, enabling cells to function as rechargeable batteries. A cell-battery powering muscle contractions. A cell-battery powering neuroplasticity. A cell-battery powering daily maintenance and stress reduction.

Herb Helper:

Cumin, Cuminum Cyminum (Plant Family: Apiaceae)

relieves flatulence, bloating and abdominal gases

relaxes gut discomforts

stimulates digestive processes

Parts Used: seeds

Active Constituents: volatile oil, flavonoids


Network 8:

Urinary System

This system serves as a parallel water-filtration network. It functions with the lymphatic system to remove toxic by-products and unneeded nutrients. Dissolving and releasing are its primary tools for restoring balance and maintaining critical ph-levels within the blood. Its operation ensures that a precise ratio of acidic and alkaline chemicals is present in the body at any given span of time.

Herb Helper:

Asparagus, Asparagus Officinalis (Plant Family: Liliaceae)

diuretic, improves urine flow

useful for treating kidney problems

helps to flush waste by-products accumulated in the joints

Parts Used: root, shoots

Active Constituents: steroidal glycosides, bitter glycosides, flavonoids


Network 9:

Musculoskeletal System

This system serves as the blood-production, mechanical support network for the body. There are 206 bones in the adult human body along with three core muscle types: smooth muscle, cardiac muscle, and skeletal muscle. The muscle system conjoined with the skeletal system provides a third type of defense network, enabling motion and protecting vital organs and soft tissues from destructive, external forces. In essence, it holds the body together and allows it to walk, run, jump, swim, sit and sleep as a single unit.

Herb Helper:

Comfrey, Symphytum Officinale (Plant Family: Boraginaceae)

astringent and anti-inflammatory

heals wounds, broken bones, abrasions, sprains and fractures

relieves stiff and aching joints and enables ligaments to firmly knit with bones

Parts Used: root, aerial parts

Active Constituents: allantoin, mucilage, triterpenoids


Network 10:

Integumentary System (Skin System)

This system serves as the boundary-zone, a collection of organs separating internal processes from outside environments. Skin, the largest organ of the body, as well as hair, nails, and sweat glands combine to create this multilayered grid of sensory receptors. One of the least understood molecules, melanin, lives in this zone. Skin color is created by melanin which protects the body from ultraviolet (UV) radiation emitted by the sun. Contrary to popular belief, melanin, as a natural sunblock, is a minor function. Ranging from pure black to pale yellow, this pigment's primary function is to absorb sunlight, inform protein synthesis and direct genetic expressions. It speaks directly to the pineal gland and influences DNA-RNA sequencing. Melanin permits the body to internally formulate frequencies of light and acts as a pyrotechnic conductor of electromagnetic energy. The biokinetic energy generates a sheath of light that surrounds the physical body as an invisible force field composed of electrically conductive plasma, free-spinning electrons creating an Aura.

Herb Helper:

Burdock, Arctium Lappa (Plant Family: Asteraceae)

helps to eliminate heavy metals from the body

diuretic and bitter actions allow it to alleviate skin conditions

mixed with other herbs to remedy acne, abscesses, eczema and psoriasis

Parts Used: leaves, fruit, seeds

Active Constituents: polyacetylenes, bitter glycosides, flavonoids


To boost immunity is to increase the body’s capacity to reverberate Self, protect self and support self. It is more than one immune system that enables self-defense. Immunity is achieved by the whole human body recognizing Self, aligning Body Networks and fortifying the physical body with intrinsic vitality to endure, regenerate and rapidly respond to everyday stressors and unexpected encounters with spontaneous creativity and synchronized intelligence.

All processes, informed by Cosmos, grounded and centered as the innate, gravitational force called Love.
