We recently learned of a voluntary recall of a product that we sell, which brought to light another reason to consider buying your supplements from Tilia Natural Health. In the recall, the ingredients were not dangerous, but were off from what was labelled. We were able to contact all of the patients who purchased this very popular supplement and provide them with a free replacement. Would Amazon do that for you? I think not.

Other reasons to support your local brick and mortar clinic:

  • The doctors have vetted all the products that are on the shelves. We know they work for what we prescribe them for.
  • All of our products come directly from the manufacturer or from a trusted, vetted vendor, so you are not getting any knock-off products (they exist!).
  • You are supporting the salaries of the lovely employees of Tilia Natural Health, keeping the local Seattle economy thriving with livable wage jobs.
  • We don’t make a huge profit off of these supplements! We mark them up so we can pay everyone who touches them a fair and livable wage. We effort to provide you with the convenience of purchasing high quality supplements so that you can trust that what you are putting into your body is healthful not just in ingredients but in the process of its distribution.
  • We support small vendors when we can, like the lovely Tree Frog Farm on Lummi Island, Wild Season Botanicals in Hansville, WA and Heron Botanicals in Kingston, WA. Your purchases from Tilia help them continue to make the vital medicine that they are being called to make. Bless the herbalists, it is always a labor of love.
  • You get what you pay for. Amazon has cheaper products, but at what cost? Are their employees happy, from the corporate offices to the warehouses, with livable wages. Do they source only from ethical, sustainable companies? Do they care about you? I encourage you to vote for the kind of world you want to live in by shopping a local brick and mortar stores. A shout out to one of our favorites- Sugarpill.

A great way to eat your green leafies, and they are fun for kids to help make (and eat!). If you eat at a party, make sure you check your teeth! ☺
There are many recipes online: Ranch kale chips, Chipotle kale chips etc. Look around for ways to customize this great snack.

• 1 bunch of kale (Dr. Fuller’s favorite is dinosaur/lacinto kale. If you use thinner kale like Russian kale, decrease baking time and/or temperature).
• olive oil
• salt and pepper to taste

Wash kale. Shred kale into chip sized pieces (1-2 inches diameter) and spread 1 layer on a baking pan, drizzle kale with olive oil, add salt and pepper to taste. Bake at 325ºF for 8-10 minutes (should be crispy, not burnt). You may need to adjust baking time and/or temperature depending on your oven.
