The most popular product at the Wolfe Clinic. A very concentrated mixture of herbs that is meant for intestinal and colon cleansing.
There are cheaper tea cleanses. True, but the difference is in the potency. For example:
Yogi Detox Tea: $3.99 for 16 teabags. One teabag makes 8 ounces of tea. After all 16 are used, you’ve ended up with one gallon (128 ounces) of Yogi Cleansing tea. $3.99 per gallon.
Royal Tea: $39.00 for 12 teabags. One teabag makes 64 ounces of tea. After all 12 are used, you’ve got six gallons of Royal Tea (768 ounces). $6.50 per gallon. Yeah, it’s still more per gallon, but it’s simply a better quality product than anything you’ll find at the supermarket.
What happened to the 4-month supply? Longtime Wolfe customers may remember when we had a”4-month supply” of the tea, which was a really big gold bag with 48 teabags stuffed in it. The idea was that you got 48 teabags for the price of 36 (four months for the price of three, $117 instead of $156).
We still do this now, but instead of the 4-month supply being in its own package, we offer a buy-three-get-1-free deal which is the same quantity of teabags and the same cost ($117).

Persimmon leaves are a good source of important dietary antioxidants, such as vitamin A & C and flavonoids. It has been widely used as a tea in oriental countries.
Persimmon leaf is anti-allergic and anti-pruritic in composition; in other words, an allergy or itching preventive food. No need for antihistamines again. Furthermore, research has proven the therapeutic effect of persimmon leaf extract on those suffering from dermatitis. There were no significant adverse reactions observed.
Studies have also shown that supplementation of persimmon leaf improves lipid profiles and suppresses body weight gain in animals that were fed high-fat diets. It is also used topically in some beauty products to help to clarify the skin and eliminate dull and dark areas.
This plant is one of the earliest cited in recorded literature and was considered a perfect plant. Dioscorides extols it as a remedy, and in ancient days it was not only valued as a medicine, but was used, especially the Musk Mallow, to decorate the graves of friends. Pliny said: ‘Whosoever shall take a spoonful of the Mallows shall that day be free from all diseases that may come to him.’ All Mallows contain abundant mucilage, and the Arab physicians in early times used the leaves as a poultice to suppress inflammation.
Many species are edible as leaf vegetables. As an herbal mixture, it is commonly used for its colon cleansing properties and as a weight loss supplement. As well, this herb can help soothe inflammation in the mouth and throat and is helpful for earaches.
The seed contains mucilage, polysaccharides and flavonoids. It is demulcent, (soothes and softens irritated tissues, especially the mucus membranes) diuretic, emollient, (softens the skin) galactogogue (increases milk flow in nursing mothers) and is a gentle stimulator of the bowels. The seeds which have a sweet and astringent taste are used in Tibetan medicine. They are used in the treatment of renal disorders, the retention of fluids, frequent thirst and diarrhea.
Holy Thistle (also called Blessed thistle and St. Benedict’s Thistle) has been used medicinally for over 2000 years, most commonly for the treatment of liver problems by supporting it in the release of toxins. It has been highly regarded for therapeutic uses and was cultivated throughout Europe and some say gained its moniker through its reputation as a ‘heal-all’, even credited with curing the Plague. It was in known cultivation as early as the mid-1500’s.
Holy thistle products are still popular in Europe and the United States for various types of liver disease. Holy thistle is believed to have great power in the purification and circulation of the blood. It is such a good blood purifier that drinking a cup of thistle tea twice a day will cure chronic headaches. It is also used for stomach and digestive problems, gas in the intestines, constipation, gallbladder disorders, lack of appetite (not feeling hungry) and on the skin for treating infected wounds or ulcers.
It is very effective for dropsy, strengthens the heart and is good for the lungs and kidneys. Some claim that the warm tea, made from Holy Thistle, given to mothers will produce a good supply of milk. That is why it is also called Milk Thistle. It is also said to be good for girls entering womanhood as a tonic.
Marshmallow Leaf has been traditionally used to soothe and support the intestines. Herbs high in mucilage (a natural gummy substance that does not dissolve in water) such as Marshmallow, are often helpful for symptomatic relief of coughs and irritated throats. Marshmallow root and, to a lesser extent, marshmallow leaf both contain significant percentages of mucilage; Like other mucilage-containing substances, marshmallow swells up and becomes slick when it is exposed to fluids. The resulting slippery material coats the linings of the mouth, throat and stomach to relieve irritation.
Marshmallow leaf relieves irritation by coating inflamed surfaces. Its primary use in modern herbal medicine is to relieve sore throat, but it also relieves perianal inflammation (when taken orally) caused by severe diarrhea.
It also has mild antibacterial, anti-allergy and immune-boosting properties. Topically, marshmallow is used to soothe and soften irritated skin. Marshmallow leaf is completely non-toxic.
