To reconnect to the timeless, natural wisdoms of healthy living, and happiness!
Arne Langaskens has been a powerful translator of Eastern philosophy and health care techniques to hundreds of Westerners. Arne’s reputation in health care is based on his experience as a practicing herbalist and on his passion for obtaining and producing the highest quality herbs and herbal products to promote Radiant Health. Arne has altered the lives of thousands of people by providing them with a new set of amazing mental, spiritual and nutritional tools.
We all want to live our lives fully, successfully, healthfully and happily. In the Orient, these attainments are cumulatively called 'radiant health.' Physical health alone becomes irrelevant if it is accompanied by a troubled life, unhappiness, or failure. The loss of our physical health can become an all-consuming disaster. Sooner or later, most of us fall prey to various disharmonies in our lives and to small or serious ailments, which can accumulate and disrupt our lives and reduce our capacity to live fully or reach our potential.
Yet it is possible to build and protect our health so that we can live life optimally. Radiant health is attainable, and we can maintain it once we have it. Radiant health is attainable if we learn the secrets of living in accord with Nature’s laws and take advantage of a few of Nature’s tools.
Among the great 'tools' discovered by humankind to aid in the attainment of radiant health are the Chinese tonic herbs, also called the 'Superior Herbs' in Asia. The tonic herbs are the elite herbs of the Chinese herbal system, the most fully developed herbal system in the world. The Chinese tonic herbs have always held a very special place in Asian culture. These very special natural substances have been associated with the highest qualities of living, and thus are associated with the ideals of long life, slow aging, glowing health, happiness, wisdom, physical vitality, adaptability, sexual vigor and response, mental acuity and clear intuition, love and compassion, and harmonious relations with nature and with one's fellow human beings. By achieving these goals, one can be said to have attained true 'radiant health.'
The ultimate purpose of consuming Chinese tonic herbs and of applying the principles of this 'way of radiant health' is not so much to eradicate disease, as it is to achieve these ideal goals of living. It has become clear over many centuries that the great Chinese tonic herbs can make a very major contribution toward one's ultimate well being by providing very special nutrients that help the body-mind become radiantly healthy.
What distinguishes Chinese herbalism from other systems has been the attitude the Chinese and other Asian societies have taken toward health. Putting the emphasis on promoting health, they have created a body of knowledge concerning the health-promoting tonic herbs that no other society or system has matched. Other systems have emphasized the remedial over the preventive, at least as it has come down to us today.
Traditional Asian herbalism has evolved over thousands of years. The Chinese have chronicled their discoveries and have passed the knowledge along from generation to generation for over three thousand years. Because of their respect for, and continued utilization of these herbs, Asian societies have paid special attention to preserving the existence of these treasures of the earth. The vast traditional herbal knowledge that has developed through centuries of continued practice has led recently to an intense search for scientific understanding, and for new improved methods of cultivation, production, distribution and consumption.
As a result of three decades of research in thousands of institutions and laboratories throughout the world, Asian herbalism is now becoming well understood and is taking its rightful place as a major form of health care throughout the world. Science and traditionalism have been well blended in Asia, where the traditional is respected but science is required to meet modern standards. Thousands of herbs have been thoroughly examined. Major research institutes throughout Asia have performed innumerable studies on the major tonic herbs, and thus these natural substances are now becoming quite well understood. There is a logic to the herbs based not only on age-old tradition, but on good modern science.
This is an incredibly exciting time in human evolution. It is truly an exhilarating time, full of promise – but also full of danger. I, for one, want to live a long life, free from disease and suffering. And I want to age slowly and gracefully. I want to be physically strong and clear minded. I want satisfaction and fulfilment. I am sure that you share these goals with me.
Many years ago, I became the student of a great Daoist master who taught me about many things about life, including the art of the superior herbalism, also known as tonic herbalism. This art changed (saved) my life, and I have since found fulfilment in my life by passing the knowledge of this art on to as many people as I can. It is my complete belief that the principles of tonic herbalism, and of course the herbs themselves, can improve the lives of virtually every person on the planet, were each person to become aware of them. The tonic herbs are health promoting. They protect us and slow down the aging process. They encourage our creativity and help make us lovelier. They strengthen us and allow us to accomplish our goals. They promote our wisdom. And they are especially important to all of us right now.
There have been several revolutionary explosions in the world in the past century – and many of us have played a part in these incredible changes – for good or ill. For one, the population has doubled in our lifetime. This has led to, and will further lead to, incredible problems for you and me, and even more so for our children. We must not only feed and house everyone, but we owe it to each and every soul on earth to help them achieve happiness, health, peace and a satisfactory life. If we fail to accomplish these basics, it will come back to destroy much or all of what we have created. The world is one whole – we must never lose sight of this one fundamental truth.
On the other hand, the technological revolution that has now evolved into the digital age has opened the door to a new era of world unification, free flow of goods and services, and freedom of expression. On the technological front, the future is truly amazing, and we truly have a lot to look forward to. The future is in our hands, for ourselves and for our children.
But perhaps, ultimately, the most important revolution has been the revolution in social awareness and spiritual consciousness that was spawned in the 1960’s and has continued to mature for the past thirty five years. This revolution has drawn heavily from the wisdom of the ancient Far East, as well as from enlightened indigenous cultures from throughout the world. Issues such as human rights, the environment (ecology) and health care have altered your life and the lives of people throughout the world. One area of great interest to many people has been the issue of natural health care, and in particular, natural means of achieving radiant. 'Radiant health' is defined in the Orient as 'health beyond danger.' We are now living in an era when the dream of achieving consistent and genuine radiant health is within sight. Still, though, many people have not found their way to a truly healthy lifestyle. Though the means of achieving radiant health are available, the guidance of caring teachers and providers remains necessary – and will for quite some time. It is our goal to pass on to you some of what we have learned.
The world is at a crossroads. If the planet is to be brought back to radiant health, and if the human race is to survive and flourish, we all need to cultivate our own personal health NOW, in conjunction with the health of human society and the health of both the local and global environment. As our collective awareness develops, it is becoming clear to a huge number of people that our personal well being is totally dependent upon the health, sanity and well being of human civilization and the health of the planet. Each of us, in our own way, can contribute to making this a better, healthier, more harmonious world – and live a better, healthier, more fulfilling life as a result. The Asian tonic herbs can help sustain our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual strength – all necessary at this point in human evolution. Health is the greatest of blessings, and it is within reach for most of you. It all starts with your commitment to your own radiant health and that of your families and friends.
For the first time it is possible for anyone to obtain the most incredible health-promoting nutrients and supplements ever discovered. Herbal substances that have always been so rare that they were available only to monarchs, aristocrats and hermits are now available to you for the asking – if you know what to look for and where to look. And that’s where we come in. We have spent many years sourcing the finest, most effective herbal tonics in the world. We have identified the best means of collecting these herbs, transporting them, processing them so that they are at peak potency and efficacy, and delivering them to you (and to ourselves, since we too are on the path of radiant health). We are very pleased to offer the greatest line of tonic herbs in the world to anyone seeking to improve their lives and to find true radiant health.
