Wildfire Resources 2020

August 21, 2020

California fires are here again. Our hearts go out to everyone going through trauma, loss of power, evacuations, and/or home loss. Farmacopia's Dr. Bridget Somine, ND has written two articles that address dealing with the acute effects on the respiratory tract and mitigating any long term potential effects. 

    We are using Purple Air and the Breezometer app to monitor air quality. Here are details on Breezometer readings.

    We are also taking Nourishing Lung, which was formulated during the 2017 Santa Rosa fires. It features adaptogens and immune modulators like Reishi mushroom and sustainably-grown American Ginseng (a lesser-known moistening lung tonic, and "non-stimulating" ginseng). These strengthening, calming herbs help support immune function, the adrenal glands, and the nervous system. Baical Skullcap helps reduce reactivity and inflammation, while Mullein leaf gently and specifically supports lung tissue. 

    Anything we can do to reduce inflammation in our bodies will help us weather this storm. Here's a quick 7-minute grounding meditation. Meditation helps reduce stress and cortisol levels. We have a lot of factors playing into raising stress right now... thank you very much 2020.

    Last year, our friends at Herb Folk Medicine published a lung support tea that you can make at home 🌿

    The Community Medicine Cabinet in Santa Rosa has created a Fire Preparedness Checklist for download. So helpful!

    Socoemergency.org has info and resources for Sonoma County, including the County of Sonoma Warm Line, 707-565-2652 for free and private support if you or someone you know is experiencing emotional stress and anxiety. Seven days a week 10:00 a.m to 7:00 p.m.

    Helps with sleep

    I've been taking this in the evening before bed for about 6 months and it definitely helps me go to sleep more quickly, and also sleep more soundly through the night.
    Digestible and effective.

    The best B Vitamin I've tried

    I'm very happy with this vitamin. Easily digestible, and I can feel the difference in energy levels when I'm taking this regularly.

    I love this

    I take this most mornings for both a mood and energy boost. I also take it if I’m feeling sluggish and want to enhance mental clarity. I highly recommend this blend.

    Great

    Received the gift certificate for my birthday from my daughter-in-law. I Had shopped in Farmacopia one year ago. Wanted to shop again. Due to Covid it’s hard to do. Searching for products online was easy. Purchasing items online was easy. Calling the store to make sure my order was ready was easy. Picking up my purchase at the store was easy. I will shop Farmacopia again. Looking forward to trying all the products I purchased.

    Definitely helps

    I’m not celiac but I am lactose & gluten intolerant. I avoid eating gluten always but sometimes I’m tempted by cheese. I recently ate some goat feta and I had no problems. I didn’t over unduly. Usually any amount of dairy causes me stomach pains and so much bloating. I don’t make a habit of taking this in a regular basis but it’s also come in very handy when I’ve gone out to eat or over to a friends (pre covid) and cheese has bean sprinkled on top and it’s always hard to remove it all.
