Cao Su

Complete treatment for diabetes

herbal extracts from plants of the high plateau

This tea has its origin in the hospitality of people on the Tibetan plateau. It is traditionally used as a welcome tea for visitors and only later its anti-diabetes properties have been discovered. CaoSu contains the extracts of Phellodendron chinense, Panax ginseng, and Gymnema tingens among others.
The CaoSu tea has recently been tested on 118 diabetes type II patients. In 86% of all cases the blood sugar had reached healthy normal levels after 2 months. Severe cases needed medication for up to 4 months to achieve normal blood values. The overall success rate was 96% of all patients.

take 3g (1 sachet), 3 times per day
dilute in a bit of warm water, take it before food.

We additionally advise to include a health diet into your daily routine. See an example of a health food diet geard toward recovering from chronic illness.

CaoSu treatment for 60 days
(560g powder in bag)

Dose: take 3 g powder (1 sachet), 3 times a day before meals (the powder can also be added to bakery items; in this case please observe that by eating e.g. cookies, the daily dose of 9 g will not be exceeded as this could lower the blood sugar values too much.)

Full treatment:
1st phase: take CaoSu for 60 days (2 months); by then the blood values should be normal. (if not, continue for a maximum of 4 months)
2nd phase: stabilize your blood values by gradually reducing CaoSu over a period of 4 to 6 months.
3rd phase: stop treatment entirely and monitor your blood values regularly. Only if conditions show signals of reverting to diabetes, take low dose of CaoSu to stop the progress.

Through CaoSu, insulin production and secretion are regulated and the target cells' physiological reception of insulin is improved. After the re-adjustment of the insulin system, there is no life long treatment necessary; only occasional or periodical taking of CaoSu may be necessary. Also, there are no known side effects (attention: overdose can reduce blood sugar to low levels!). The product has a bitter after taste.

CaoSu also has a repair function on arteries and veins, which are often damaged in diabetes patients.

Note 1: if your diabetes has a long history, which is resulting in series side effects, please use medicine to address those side effects simultaneously.

Note 2: for patients with considerable over weight and high blood fat:

We recommend to first take a tea of chinese herbs (5 species) for reducing blood fat. The tea consists of:
Guoqi (Lycium barabrum):10g, Shouwu (Radix polygoni):15g, Juemingzi (Cassia tora): 15g, Shanzha (Crataegus): 15g, Danshen (Radix salviae): 20g.
Sink herbs in water for 30 minutes then boil. Drink 2 times a day (morning and evening).
The herbs can be found in drug stores or Chinese medicine stores.
Take for 1-2 month first, and then take CaoSu Diabetes herb extract.

Note 3: if you are repelled by the bitterness of CaoSu, please start taking it slowly, like e.g. take only half dose until your intestinal system has adjusted to it.

Contraindication: please note that CaoSu's content of ginseng can increase the blood pressure. Therefore, CaoSu is not recommended for people with high blood pressure or irregular blood pressure.

All our products derive from ethnobotanical research into their traditional use either in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) or by local ethnic commmunities. This is not the standard that FDA and many other countries accept nor support. You are therefore advised to always consult your doctor. Any medical claims that after our careful editing on these pages may still be found are by no means to be misinterpreted as medical recommendations.

A truly rare treat not only for orchid lovers...

Many traditional medical herbs are collected in the misty mountain forests of Southern Yunnan. Even the famous Puer tea is an inhabitant of the mountain forest of sub-tropical South China

Some herbal medicine species are very rare and due to increasing demand in alternative treatment they are getting closer to extinction.

Among the rare medicinal herbs are species with spectacular flowers.

Our answer to the threat of extinction of rare species is to domesticate them and contract grow them with our local farmers.

Your purchase is supporting their livelihood.

We also offer health food and health travel for your advise and life style adjustments:

for wholesale import or the production and contract growing of medicinal crops for your needs, please contact us.

For medical companies:

Your ecologically friendly production:
proudly traceable!

Imagine, the traceability of your products leads your customers to the tropical jungles of the Mekong river and to the Himalayan mountains where Tibet meets Yunnan. Immerged in diverse culture and rich biodiversity, your customers can visit the places and people where your products start from pristine soils, clean air, and where they support the livelihood of local ethnic communities.

Would this add to the sustainability and credibility of your business?

Would your trademark benefit from international research publications lauding your company's involvement in saving the rain forest?

If you are in the food, cosmetics, flower, herbal, and medical business, certifying your products as contributing to biodiversity protection will be an advantage with a competitive edge.

The TianZi Biodiversity Centre is working with German Universities to design land use systems, which are bound to change paradigms: we promote rare agro-biodiversity species, manage complexity, and find alternatives to destructive forms of mono culture.

We conceptualize clean production mechanisms and include carbon sequestration technologies into our innovative land use systems.

If all this is in line with your company's business concept - please contact us.
