Manuka Honey and Kumarahou Tonic 2021

A Colville Community Health Trust gift. To our community from our community!

For those 65 years of age and over or for anyone in our area who is at high risk for health issues secondary to viral infections such as Covid-19 during the coming months. One container per family is ideal as it contains 160 doses.


The predominant ingredients are locally grown and the recipe blended by our local healers working collaboratively to bring you a tonic that provides support to your immune system's response to viral illnesses. In the 1918 Flu epidemic communities that had access to local traditional medicines in their home cupboards benefited from both the knowledge that they had immediate access to supportive treatment and that this knowledge led to a reduction in stress. Stress and fear are extremely harmful to the immune system and we hope that by having information on our website and our tonic in your home we can help to reduce fear.

Crafted with aroha and expertise by our volunteers from the Colville Community Health Centre (Dr Kate Armstrong, Mr Richard Campbell, Hannah White, Kate Campbell, Missy Takizaki and Lillian Takizaki), Niki Pucci Medical Herbalist/Naturopath, and Diane Hayes Homeopath, we have formulated this gift for you.

Thanks also to our sponsors (Shayne and Elizabeth Mackenzie - Woodlands Honey, KRC Products- Kumarahou) and our amazing Colville Community Health Trustees and staff who made this all possible: Jo Herbert (Chairperson - Volunteer), Robyn Vinten (Trustee - Volunteer) , Nicole Brighouse (Trustee - Volunteer) Linley Rose (Trustee - Volunteer), and Kate Armstrong (Trustee - Volunteer). Emily Macleod (Trust Manager - Staff) and Rosemary Garland (Trust Financial Administrator - Staff).

This is because our tonic contains homeobotanicals that convey a gentle potent message to the immune system and we want this message to have time to take effect after each dose.
