Details of Astragalus and Siler Formula
Astragalus root is all about immunity, but that includes skin functions too.



Notes: This formula’s name suggests that, like a screen door, good air can pass through, but insects remain outside. This formula isn’t about repelling insects exactly, but it is about forming a screen to keep out other problems carried by the wind.

It also promotes appropriate skin functions such as sweating. If you sweat inappropriately, and have more than four colds or flus per year, this is a great formula for you.


Also available as convenient “teapills” here.

  • Astragalus is famous for immunity support, but its affects go deeper than that, actually they go more superficial. This is an anti-sweating formula, but it is only for sweating that is NOT associated with a fever. If you have a fever, you treat the fever to reduce sweating. If you sweat very easily without a fever, then astragalus is for you.
