I Am Gaia

Description

The SuperFeast I Am Gaia blend celebrates women and their right to thrive in flowing, abundant health. All women; from the young to the young at heart. As a formula, I Am Gaia is a collection of the Orient’s most potent and revered tonic herbs, those traditionally used to invigorate and sustain feminine health. 

The name stems from an acknowledgment that women are unified with the living energy of this Earth (Gaia), and that a cascade of blossoming health is only possible when a woman (or man) is connected with the elements of this Mother planet we call home.

Our tonic herbal ‘multivitamin’ is formulated with our favourite Taoist herbs for supporting women's health and healing. This formulation blends the most revered women’s herbs used in Chinese medicine to nourish and replenish Blood and support a healthy menstrual cycle.

This blend tends to the foundational roots of a woman's health, offering deep nourishment to the body, mind, and spirit. Tonifying the organs on both a physical and energetic level, building and moving of the blood via the Liver, Spleen, Heart, and Kidneys, regulating hormones, menstruation, fertility, and increasing lubrication.

I Am Gaia is a longevity formula, designed to rejuvenate a woman's body by empowering her innate vitality and has been carefully crafted to offer general support to all the major and minor organ systems of a woman’s body.

Sourcing

All herbs in this formula are sourced Dì Dào from herb-producing regions of China.
Sourcing herbs from their spiritual homeland is born from the Taoist philosophy Dì Dào. 

Dì Dào poetically translates as ‘the way of the Earth’ and shows us where to harvest herbs if we wish to experience the herb’s true Spirit. From its ‘original place’ or ‘spiritual homeland’, a method that results in a product that is both full spectrum and medicinally robust.

Contraindications

Contraindicated in pregnancy. 

Serving Suggestion

Time of day

Whatever feels best for you!You can enjoy the I Am Gaia blend at any time throughout your day.

Frequency

Take three times a day.

Dosage

Generally, we recommend taking the herbs daily in small doses, to begin with. This allows you to develop an understanding and acknowledgment of how the herbs are unfolding their medicinal magic for you. Follow the dosage instructions on the package, or start with 1/8 - 1/2 teaspoon per day, adjusting the dose if you feel it necessary within your unique body system.

Doses can be taken as high as two teaspoons per day, however, most people find their sweet spot with 1/2 to one teaspoon per product, per day. We call this sweet spot your "lifestyle dose". We don't recommend taking more than two tablespoons of herbs a day. These extracts are potent, and you want to take care not to overload the body with too much of a good thing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I take I Am Gaia whilst pregnant?

Tonic herbs are generally warming, building, and nourishing. In the context of health optimisation and the Taoist tradition, tonic herbs are not directly used to treat individual symptoms, but instead to create harmony and strength within the system as a whole.

In this regard, we generally recommend our Reishi and Eucommia Bark during pregnancy as there is quite a lot of empirical use of these herbs in pregnancy in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Taoist Tonic Herbalism. We advise that you cease taking I Am Gaia during pregnancy as some of the herbs within the blend are contraindicated during pregnancy, without the supervision of a practitioner.
