5 Powerhouse Herbs, Blended to Perfection for Protection ​During Extreme High-Risk Times Immunity Guard KuKista is proud to introduce Immunity Guard, a perfect blend of five powerhouse herbs blended into one great extract that is used to guard your immune system. 1 LDM - (Lomatium) a preventative against viral infections especially during high-risk periods. It inhibits growth and reproduction of viral organisms, rendering them inactive, thus enabling white blood cells to do their job and dump them to be filtered out of the body.2 Dandelion helps neutralize or prevent the negative effects of free radicals in your body. It provides strong protection against cellular damage and oxidative stress. Because of Dandelion’s ability to rid the body of free radicals and strong cell protection, it also then prevents the growth of dangerous cells.3 Red Roobios stops cell mutation and helps to fight against the free radicals. Red Roobios boosts the immune system and protects the body from viruses. Rooibos enhances cellular resistance to oxidative stress and provides protection against cell death.4 Astragalus helps the body fight off stress and disease. It prevents and protects cells against cell death, free radicals and oxidation. Astragalus essentially regulates the body’s immune responses.5 Venus Fly Trap stimulates and activates sluggish white blood cells. Stimulated, they fight infection and defend the body against foreign materials, recognize and defend against intruders, kills harmful bacteria and create antibodies to protect the body against exposure to bacteria and viruses. Venus Fly Trap possess an advanced type of immune system capable of distinguishing between harmful intruder organisms and its own materials. ​Want to have a quick chat?

We love both! Just like Vanilla extracts that are normally used in our kitchen for baking, tinctures are made using the same method from medicinal plants using alcohol. Healing plants are weighed out in proper amounts and soaked in alcohol ranging from 50 to 180 proof alcohol. This process extracts everything in the plant leaving only the actual structure of the plant to be filter out changing it from “spirits” to an herbal extract.​ Herbal tinctures are easy to use because you can start with as low as 1 drop and up your dosage to as much as needed. Tinctures and essential oils are like comparing oranges to apples. They are just two different products. Essential oils has a completely different extraction process called distillation. Distillation is the process of separating only the highly concentrated “essential oils” from a liquid mixture using selective boiling and condensation. As the distillation takes place, the steam generated dissipates leaving the heavier essential oils to be collected. Here at KuKista, our tinctures are still made in small batches, hand mixed and hand filtered for the very best quality and most effective healing extractions. Want to have a quick chat?

During the flu pandemic of 1917-1918, a special root was used by the Washoe Indian tribes near Carson City, Nevada.  Dr. E.T. Krebs Sr., a contracted physician assigned by the U.S. government, was surprised to find these Native American tribes free from respiratory illness and no deaths attributed from the “influenza bug.”  This was especially unbelievable because people were “dying like flies” throughout the entire region, the nation and the world.  Seeing the dried root hanging, Dr. Krebs was told it was “powerful medicine” and took the dried root to San Francisco and the “people just stopped dying.” Those Native Americans called the medicinal root “Dortza”, which meant “powerful medicine.”  They collected it during the year when the richest supply of oils were concentrated in the large underground roots.  Chopped and hung them to dry in their huts. LDM (Lomatium Dissectum v. Multifida) Extract is used both as a preventative against viral infections or  solely during high-risk periods.  It inhibits growth and reproduction of viral organisms, rendering them inactive, thus enabling white blood cells to do their job by dumping them to be filtered out of the body. Volatile oil factions in the root contain the antiviral/antibiotic properties along with powerful anti-bacterial/anti-fungal properties.  LDM extract stops the growth of all viruses, bacteria and fungus in the body and eliminates the lethal micro-organisms without harming the ones necessary to good health. LDM is anti-viral and the dosage depends upon the strength or weakness of the body’s natural immune system. LDM is completely natural and non-toxic; therefore, the dosage may be safely increased until it takes effect. Adults: 3 to 10 drops, 3 to 5 times daily.   Start with a low dosage, increase with tolerance.  Keep dosage low for first 7 days, then increase as needed. Children: 3 to 4 drops, 4 to 6 times daily gradually increasing quantity and frequency. 1 to 2 drops for babies added to water or juice. NOTICE:  1 in 200 people get a one time harmless detox rash.  This is due to the body dumping high amounts of toxins and its inability to filter it through.  Stop LDM until rash has cleared and then begin again.  Always begin LDM in small doses.
