Shaman Shack Herbs offers “Tonic” herbs that have been used safely and effectively for centuries by ancient seers, shamans, and Taoist masters. These herbs are thought to have been used in the famous “Elixirs of Immortality” of ancient Chinese folklore. They specialize in whole herb formulas for true herb connoisseurs; a little extra work cooking tea is well worth the effort and also, you get to touch, taste and connect with the real herbs as you prepare the tea. They source the highest quality herbs for their products; herbs grown by old-school farmers of many generations, in wild lands of Northern Manchuria and other regions in China and Korea that have been kept safe from pollutants. A trip to these areas is like going back centuries into a simple past, where the herbs are collected from the wild and farmed by people who do things according to ensconced traditions. We hope that you can feel the difference.
Shaman Shack is a Californian company, who produce some of the most outstanding Chinese herbal formulations available. We were the first to bring their products into Europe, and we stock all their most popular lines, so you can access these high quality ingredients easily. Unfortunately, EU laws forbid us from sharing further information on these herbs.

He has been working with Chinese herbs for over ten years, and trained with Ron Teeguarden of Dragon Herbs. His story is absolutely fascinating: he talks in-depth about how he was drawn to Chinese herbalism, and how he came to get into juicing and raw foods. They also discuss some of his formulations and the incredible ingredients he uses, such as reishi, shilajit, ormus, black bean, and rehmannia. He also talks about his book, Raw Chi, and combining raw foods with Chinese herbs for maximum benefit.
