1. Are you really a Monastery?
In a larger sense, yes. We are not affiliated with any religious order or belief system, but we have certain practices that one might find in a monastery type of environment. One of our practices is imprinting spiritual energy to
re-awaken, re-align, and re-energize the herbs to work as one unit. Offering prayers and blessings during processing also intensifies this process. If you would like more information about our practice of blessing the herbals, please refer to our web page on Esoteric Herbalism.
2. How do I know what herbals to take?
You will need to be tested. "Neuro kinesiology" testing may by done over the phone, in most cases. Those of you who do not have access to an herbal or nutritional specialist, Click Here.
You may choose to call your own Doctor or health care practitioner for assistance. Have them call us to set up an account, so that they may order for you.
Note: Please remember that we are in Pacific Time.
3. Can I order directly from Monastery of Herbs?
No. You must be a Doctor or professional health care specialist. If you are individual seeking herbals, you will need to find a health care practitioner who has an account set up with us. Refer to Question # 2.
4. How quickly will I receive my order?
Ordinarily, you should allow 1-3 days for the order to be processed and 2-3 days for it to be sent via U.S. Priority Mail. Occasionally we can complete and order the same or next day and be ahead of schedule. All orders are CUSTOM MADE. We do not make products ahead of time and leave them sitting on the shelf. They are lovingly made to order with care and precision.
5. What type of payments do you accept?
Generally, you will purchase your herbal products through your practitioner. Some practitioners prefer to Fax us your order and will ask for your credit card. We will charge it and the order is shipped directly to you. When the practitioner has set up this transaction, you must only pay by credit or debit card. We accept American Express, Master Card, and Visa only.
6. What is the common dosage for herbal sets?
Our sets are designed to be taken once a day for 18 days. However, we recommend that you always check with your health care specialist before beginning any dietary supplement program.
7. What are the most common side effects of herbals?
90% of people taking our herbals do not have side effects; 10% do. For those 10%, the most common reactions may be diarrhea, nausea, and headache. These reactions usually last only 1-2 days. Please check with your health care specialist for guidance, if you experience any reactions while taking herbals.
8. How many herbal sets can I take at a time?
Please consult your health care specialist. Everyone is different and will need to have guidance from a qualified health care practitioner.
9. What if I am sensitive to the herbals?
Check with your health care specialist, for guidance. Second, READ the Dosage Suggestions sheet packed with each shipment. If you experience reactions that last more than 1 day, stop taking the herbals and consult your health care specialist immediately.
10. I don't like the taste of the tinctures. What am I to do?
Refer to the Dosage Suggestions information for ideas. We think the best idea is to put the tinctures in empty vegetable capsules. They will have no taste.
11. What is the function of the tinctures and why do we have to take them?
If you just take the dry herbal blend, you are just addressing the energies of pathogens. Monastery of Herbs takes it a step further, in addressing the optimum functioning of the immune system. We create nutrient-rich tinctures with amino acids, enzymes, proteins, vitamins, and minerals, in addition to the natural nutrients and cleansers in the herbs. These tinctures may help nutrients pass thru a cell’s membrane-encased mass of protoplasm containing the chromosomes and other genetic information necessary to boost the immune system.
12. Can my pets benefit from the Monastery's products?
Oh, yes! Because of the rarefied energy in animals, it is only necessary for cats and dogs to take the tinctures. World-renowned animal expert Dr. Kiko endorses the Monastery product. Click Here to see the photo. Ask Dr. Kiko...
