Important Shipping & Returns Information:


• You must include your full first and last name in order for the order to be filled. Failure to provide your full first and last name will result in a delay in processing your order or the inability to fulfill the order altogether. We will email you if this is the case.

• Please use an email address and/or phone number that you can be reached at in the event we have questions or issues regarding your order. Please include a phone number when ordering so that UPS can contact you directly if there is an issue with delivery.

• Orders must be placed by 12:00 pm PST Monday - Friday in order to ship same day. Some orders placed after 12:00 pm may still be shipped same day depending on how busy the herbal pharmacy is that day. Orders placed on weekends will ship out on Mondays (except for holidays) or on the next business day.

• UPS does not consider the ship date as "Day 1" under their Ground Shipping, 3 Day Select and 2nd Day Air shipping options. The first day ("Day 1") is considered the day after the date of shipment. Next Day Air, however, will generally arrive the day after the ship date (by the end of next business day). Next Day Air does not include delivery on Saturdays or Sundays, although the customer can call UPS directly and pay an extra fee for Saturday delivery. Orders placed on Fridays and shipped via Next Day Air will normally arrive on Monday (except for holidays) or on the next business day.

• We do not ship on the following holidays: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day & Day After, and Christmas Day. We resume shipping on the next business day.

• This formula is normally shipped via UPS, and they cannot deliver to PO Boxes. If you use a PO Box for your shipping address during checkout, your order will take an additional 3 business days to process before being shipped. This could delay expedited shipping preferences and we may or may not be able to refund some of the shipping charges. We will email you if this is the case.

• All international orders (outside of the continental U.S.) require an additional 1-3 business days to process before being shipped.

• We will send you a shipping confirmation email when your order ships. It will include the USPS or UPS reference number(s) for tracking your package(s).

• Orders can be cancelled by calling (530) 303-7031 or emailing lauren@wayoflifemedicine.com. If the order has not yet shipped a refund will be issued to you.

Heantos (Modified) - 68 g / granules (extract powder)

  • This 68 gram formula is intended to last approximately 7 days at a high dosage of 10 grams per day. Most people will notice effects at a lower dosage of 6-9 grams per day and the formula will last longer. The exact dosage for each individual will vary based on age, size and sensitivity to herbs. The following instructions are provided to help determine your individual dosage requirement.   

    Recommended Dosage: 2 spoonfuls/grams (1 tsp) every 3 hrs as needed, not to exceed 16 spoonfuls/grams (8 tsp) per day. Mix each dose into 8 oz of warm water and drink as a tea. Reduce dosage if formula causes stomach upset & try taking with food.


    Take this product at least 4-5 hours before unpleasant symptoms are expected to occur, or up to 3-7 days before unpleasant symptoms are expected to occur.


    Moderate Dosing Option:

    Days 1 - 3:  2 spoonfuls/grams (1 tsp), 3 times daily.

    Days 4 - 7:  1 spoonful/gram (1/2 tsp), 4 times daily.

    Days 8 - 15:  1 spoonful/gram (1/2 tsp), 2 times daily.


    Another "As Needed" Option:

    Days 1 - 5: 2 grams/spoonfuls (1 tsp) every 6 hours.

    Days 6 - 10: 2 grams/spoonfuls (1 tsp) every 8 hours.


    Long-Term Option:

    Days 11 - 31: 1 spoonful/gram (1/2 tsp), 3 times daily

    Continue taking as directed for 16-30 full days. It may be necessary to continue taking 1-2 spoonfuls/grams (1/2-1 tsp) daily to achieve the desired results.


    Our herb granules (also known as extract powders) come with a small plastic spoon for measuring doses. 1 spoonful is equivalent to approximately 1 gram. If using a measuring spoon, 1 teaspoon is equivalent to approximately 2 grams. The following dosages are estimates based on these calculations.


    Very low dosage = 1-2 grams/spoonfuls per day = 0.5-1 tsp per day = 34-68 day supply

    Low dosage = 3 grams/spoonfuls per day = 1.5 tsp per day = 22 day supply

    Moderate dosage = 6 grams/spoonfuls per day = 3 tsp per day = 11 day supply

    High dosage = 9-10 grams/spoonfuls per day = 4.5-5 tsp per day = 7 day supply

    Extra high dosage = 12 grams/spoonfuls per day = 6 tsp per day = 5 day supply

    Maximum dosage = 16 grams/spoonfuls per day = 8 tsp per day = 4 day supply

  • Certain people should be cautious taking this formula. Please consult with your healthcare provider before starting this formula if: 


    • you are taking blood thinners
    • you have high blood pressure
    • you have heart, kidney or liver problems
