immune system tea:
a mix of the most powerful traditional Chinese herbs to activate the
immune system to fight viruses
herbal immune system tea is developed in Southern China where HIV/AIDS
has become a serious epidemic, starting years ago through migrant workers
to Thailand. There, in Northern Thailand, the herbal immune system tea
has been tested first and is since then becoming popular. The tea may
be restoring the immune system function of the body efficiently and
a large number of viral secondary infections seem to be taken care of
at the same time.
While this is a new way of looking at the treatment of HIV, the formula
itself is but a sophisticated mixture of traditional Chinese herbs known
to have positive effects on the immune system (see literature below).
Please note that we have developed a new formulation called i-drops,
which is designed as honey droplets. These droplets are easier to take
and the honey increases resorption of the ingredients.
recommend to add the herbal extract to warm water or Job's tears milk
and/or coffee, and use honey to cushion its bitter taste and to simultaneously
overcome fatigue and support resorption. We additionally advise to include
a health diet into your daily routine. See

Name: herbal immune tea (revivo)
per bag: 10g herbal extract powder
dosage: take 2 bags per day, one in the morning and one in the evening;
after every 4 days, pause for one day. Continue for at least 1 month
or up to 3 to 6 months in chronic cases.
under medical observation the daily dose can be increased to 4 bags
(40 g), and there is no need for pausing after the 4th day. This is
particularly suggested if CD4 counts are below 200.
to take it: pour the contents of one 10g-bag into a glass of hot
water or Job's tears milk, stir, and drink it all. You may want to add
honey, as the herbal extracts are very bitter.
users with additional fever, tiredness, secondary infections, symptoms
of chest pain, swelling, nausea, etc.: please get a CD4 and virus check
at your hospital. If your CD4 is below 200 and/or your virus count is
above 10,000 please opt for a combination with Anti-Viral-Drugs until
blood values reach a stage from where the immune system may be able
to take over.
there are about 60 symptoms of secondary infections described for people
who suffer from immune system deficiencies. Please note that this herbal
extract may only take care of those caused by a virus, and there may
be an additional and limited anti-cancer activity. For any other secondary
infection as caused by bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms, please
make sure that you have them diagnosed and treated with appropriate
medicine. Particularly dangerous are lung infections.
it is of great importance that your body's blood production is at full
capacity. Often, however, blood production is affected by the virus.
In Chinese medicine, a traditional donkey skin product ("ejiao")
is used to support the body's blood production. You can find the product
in your nearest Chinese medicine store (looks like a package of dark
chocolate; break small portions, dissolve in hot water, and drink daily).
If there are other medications or food supplements available to you
to support the body's blood production, please use them. In severe cases,
an initial blood transfusion is a good start if blood values are already
very weak. Other herbs that stimulate blood production are the Northern
crop burdock root (Arctium lappa) and the tropical crop okra
Follow up suggestion: once your CD4-count has gone above 500,
you may pause and drastically reduce the herbal extract to about 1/2
(half) of the monthly dosage described above; above 800, you may stop
entirely and only at occasions of stress and weakness take a 5 days'
refresher. Please, have your CD4 count checked regularly to ensure your
immune system stays on guard.
It is of great importance that your
daily food supports your recovery process.
1: If secondary infections (especially diseases that are not
caused by viruses) exist, additional medicine needs to be prescribed
by your doctor to treat such infections. Also, be sure that your nutrition
is optimal and not lacking essential minerals and vitamins.
2: When taking the herbal extract for the first time, users may
be repelled by its bitter taste. Continue by taking a lower dosage for
the start but make sure to soon reach the recommended quantity.
3: Please note that, although the herbal extract is becoming
popular in many countries, the herbal extract combination has not yet
been registered by the Health Administration and patients need to take
4: The herbal extract is nontoxic as every herbal extract has
hundreds of years of use as food supplement.
effects: Some people report initial sleepiness, which is the calming
effect of one of the herbs. Occasionally the bitterness of the herb
is repelling, and initial diarrhea may occur.
As the herbal extract has a mild detoxifying effect, it is not recommended

Chinese nutraceutical extracted from:
Arctium lappa var. edule (radix), Coix lacryma-jobi (semen), Momordica
charantia (semen), Hypericum chinensis (herba), Nelumbo nucifera (semen),
Prunella vulgaris (semen), Zizyphus jujuba (fructus), Glycyrrhiza glabra
Scientific research on Chinese herbs confirms that a number of plant
extracts are capable of strengthening and supporting the immune system.
Our immune system is protecting us against viruses, bacteria, fungi,
and tumors. Responding to these various disorders, TCM (Traditional
Chinese Medicine) has discovered a range of herbal products. Revivo
contains a combination of these plant extracts, which enables it to
activate a wide spectrum of our body’s immune reactions.
Arctium lappa, an edible variety of burdock, is used since
centuries as a traditional medical plant in China, India, Japan, and
many Western countries. It has been known for detoxification and for
its ability to support the body’s blood production. More recently,
immune-supporting and anti-tumor properties have been found.
Coix lacryma-jobi seeds are well known in the production of
non-dairy milk. Traditional folk medicine has used them against warts.
New research results confirm the plant’s potent effects: extracts
of the seeds have increased the quantity of zytotoxic lymphocytes and,
hence, are active against viral infections.
Momordica charantia, the bitter cucumber, grows widely in home
gardens of all tropical countries where it is part of the local diet.
A phytochemical isolate from the plant was shown to be effective against
various viruses (among them Eppstein-Barr and herpes). Two proteins
(ƒÑ- und ƒÒ-momorcharin), were found effective
against the HIV virus. The protein MAP30 interrupts the replication
of the HIV virus.
Aside from essential oils, two active substances were isolated from
Hypericum chinensis: the polycyclic diones Hypericine and Pseudohypericine,
and the glycoside Hyperine. While known since centuries as anti-depressant,
in 1990 research confirmed for the first time its effect against retroviruses
and tumors. Hypericin is able to block the replication of the HIV virus;
it also exhibits synergistic effects with AZT.
Nelumbo nucifera, the well known Lotus, is a traditional food
plant of Asia. The plant is used medicinally to strengthen the heart
and liver. Studies show that the lotus plant has antioxidant, anti-viral,
and body-fat reducing properties. It also can reduce sugar levels, dampen
the resorption of sugar, and support insulin production. Latest research
point out that Lotus seeds extract significantly reduces HSV-1 multiplication
in HeLa cells.
Polysacharids of Prunella vulgais, a common road side plant
in all parts of the world, show anti-HIV research results and were active
against Herpes simplex 1 and 2.
Ziziphus jojoba, a common edible fruit of Asia, contains the
active ingredient betulinic acid, which recently was shown to cause
cell-death of Melanoma cells without affecting healthy tissue. Research
results suggest that there is also an effect against the HIV virus.
