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! 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.

    Got Sick - Respiratory Specific
    Catherine - San Francisco
    Extra-Level Respiratory Support

    Nourishing Lung tincture has been our go-to during the now-annual fire season, reducing the impacts of smoke & polluted air, and for providing overall respiratory support.
    Got Sick-Respiratory Specific is a great addition for the onset of URIs and other respiratory distress, as it seems to act rapidly and deeply. It's also very effective in combination with Nourishing Lung. My husband was developing a URI following surgery, and before calling the Dr for antibiotics, he opted to try using both tinctures, together with Got Sick regular formula. Significant improvement occurred within 12 hours and he was able to clear it without medication. Highest recommendation.

    Thank you for letting us know how these worked for you!

    Like the ease of the capsules. Also use the powder. Excellent way to add fiber and help digestive track. Definitely use it daily.

    Intolerance Complex

    Helps some when eating dairy or gluten on a occasional basis. Have purchased several bottles over the past few years.

    Life saver!

    Recommended to me by 2 Naturopaths. this product has helped me out of SIBO issues and also maintained my body's natural gastric process.
    Whenever I have a flare up of digestive problems, this product, in combination with garlic and probiotics has helped me restore things without the torment of antibiotics, which destroy your gut lining. I highly recommend staying on an assigned regiment of Candibactin BR for a cure.
