    • Unfortunately, we know no one directly selling Solomon’s Seal products in your countries and area. We do not get very many orders from that region of the world. However, we do ship orders purchased from our website to other countries such as yours. We have no distributors in your area, and are not needing any yet.
      Thank you for your question and interest.
      Health blessings always,
      Forrest McDowell

  3. Greetings. My body has a tendency to “dislocate” ( knee,hips,shoulder,). Now it’s my jaw. I don’t know if the joint actually dislocates or if the problem is in the ligaments & tendons not holding the joint in place. What would you suggest as a treatment plan for this condition? Thank you for making these wonderful tinctures available to all of us and for honoring the blessed plant spirits that give freely to help & heal. With gratitude, Geneve


    • Solomon’s Seal has a known history for helping to adjust ligament and tendon tensions. The regular Solomon’s Seal tincture is a minimal approach. If your conditions have been more long term, then Formula #6: All-in-One Bone, Joint, Cartilage & Tissue Health may be of benefit, as it combines the herbs from our Formulas #1, 2, and 3 into a high potency blend.
      You may benefit from a deep penetrating topical salve, and/or a Magnesium spray (which is excellent for discomfort relief, energy and cellular regeneration, among others!).
      I wish you the very best of health, healing and peace.
