Originally Faith™ was a locally known herbal food dietary supplement that has been working wonders for decades, and now under license has been renamed to Faith™, as a tribute to the newest addition to our family Faith the Boxer.
Faith is blend of 22 human grade herbal tea ingredients. It is a natural herbal food supplement alternative to pharmaceutical products. The ingredients have been carefully selected on their individual proven and documented western evidence based medicinal and nutritional values. Each ingredient has been tested by Coburg Health & Nutrition for over 30 years in combination with each other for efficacy and safety. Looking solely at the pros and cons of each individual ingredient will not provide a true picture - the magic is in the blend and the energising process that was developed using quantum physics principles.
There are many natural products on the market that may be effective against the list of things that Faith has a role in. However, the Faith formula goes much deeper than selecting a variety of herbs that are known to have certain benefits. Each herb has been tested and selected for its own specific frequency that resonates with similar frequencies related to areas of the body. This allows the use of fewer herbs with better results.
Faith™ is packed under license from Coburg Health by Augustine Approved and distributed worldwide by Augustine Approved. Faith™ is the result of over 30 years' experience by a dedicated group of animal lovers (including a bioengineer and naturopath/herbalist) who wanted the best for animals.
4 piece measuring spoon set included.
Faith does not contain pesticides and harmful chemicals like pharmaceutical products.
Synthetic copies of what is found in nature make poor substitutes and are often toxic (eg. synthetic B vitamins found in commercial pet foods and pesticides to control parasites).
The formulators of Faith share my view that you cannot outsmart nature without consequence so we strive to strengthen the immune system rather than attempt to alter it. Combining Faith with a healthy diet and regular exercise is key to supreme health.
It comes down to labelling laws rather than how effective the product is. Faith falls under food labelling laws (it is technically a food and dietary supplement) and for this reason no matter how confident we are in the product and how much scientific evidence we have of its capabilities, we are not legally allowed to make treatment claims.
The testing methods used are based on reputable highly respected western evidence based methods for herbal food analysis. Comprehensive analytical data is available by clicking on each ingredient in the ingredients list below.
Faith contains Wormwood, Barberry Bark, Fennel, Gentian Root, Pau d’Arco, Black Walnut leaf, Ginger Root and Cascara bark which have an active scientifically proven role in the control of parasites. Additionally, Cleavers (active-Iridoid coumarine andasperuloside) has been scientifically proven to have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial and lymphatic cleansing properties and offers protection from environmental toxins such as carbon tetrachloride.
Coburg Health & Nutrition has tested many worming products over the years - from the inexpensive to the ultra-expensive (all with lots of scientific data and fantastic advertising behind them) and often they prove ineffective. You are welcome to post in your worming tablets for us to test their efficacy.
There are hundreds of scientific studies proving the efficacy of Faith's ingredients (see ingredients list) and also thousands of customers over the years with documented before and after analysis results. The true test is in Faith’s excellent historical results! We have collected testimonials since January 2013, as well as many documented cases by Coburg Health for over 15 years.
Faith the boxer was seized from a breeder and brought to us at 11 months of age for fostering by Julie from the Melbourne Pet Ambulance. Let's just say she didn't have the best start to life.
After spending some time with us to make sure Faith was settling in, Julie placed a well-known and trusted brand of worming tablet in Faith’s mouth before leaving. Sure, I was already using the Faith formula on Augustine and Mishka and was even taking a variation of it myself with great results but I didn’t want to interfere with rescue policy. Fifteen minutes later vomiting and diarrhea commenced and lasted right through the night. Faith’s reaction to the worming tablet was severe and not something I had ever witnessed before.
This got me thinking… first it was my Maltese Mishka that had itchy paws for most of her life until we found the Faith formula, then it was Augustine with the lump on her neck exactly where her injection had gone in, and now this. Up till this point I had referred well between 120-150 people to Coburg Health & Nutrition that produced what is now known as Faith, and many responded with great feedback. So, I decided to take this great product and make it commercially available so that everyone can benefit.
Those that know anything about me and Augustine Approved will tell you that we don’t mess around – everything we produce or promote is the real deal and our reputation is built on the highest quality products. Many people say similar things because it sounds nice, but ours actually work!
In a word - yes, however it is very important to be up front and explain that Faith is not for everyone. The first six months entails a Kick Start Cleanse which requires daily supplementation. If you consider it a hassle to add one more thing into your dog or cat’s diet then you may prefer the standard worming products.
Some of you may also find that your dog or cat will not be interested in the taste of Faith to start with. Whilst many devour it even straight in its powder form, the fussy eaters may take time to develop a taste for it. Augustine, Faith and my ultra-fussy little Mishka now eat it mixed in their food but it did take some time for them to adjust. Augustine will now even chew on it in capsule form as if it's a delicacy.
In 30 years there has not been a single reported case of toxicity in any animal (including pregnant animals) using formulas from Coburg Health & Nutrition.
St Mary's Thistle, Dandelion Root, Rose Hip, Nettle Leaf, Pau d'Arco Bark, Burdock Root, Sarsaparilla Root, Parsley, Cascara Bark, Gentian Root, Barberry Bark, Dong Quai, Red Raspberry, Ginger, Rhubarb Root, Wormwood, Fennel, Cleavers, Yellow Dock, Red Clover, Red Beetroot, Black Walnut Leaf.
Simply put, consuming Faith changes the taste of the blood and fleas do not like it. They may jump on but have no interest in sticking around. If you live in an area with lots of fleas and infestation is a concern, you may need a stronger flea product. We are soon launching our new topical powder for animals, bedding and carpets and it is called F-OFF. Please contact us directly for more information.
From my experiences Faith has been very successful in promoting a healthy gut balance, in turn bringing candida and yeast into balance. I've reviewed many before and after analysis reports from our customers that show clear evidence of Candida being brought back to safe levels. We also have dozens of before and after photos in our files including those on this page and on the Healthy Skin Bundles page. Please note that it is important to provide a diet that assists in the fight against Candidiasis (candida overgrowth) - a diet of processed foods high in sugars and simple carbohydrates encourages Candida overgrowth as yeasts thrive on processed sugars.
Yes. Historically Faith has shown to be effective against ecto-parasites and endoparasites with the likes of; heartworm, tapeworm, hookworm, whipworm and roundworm to name a few that infest the GI track. Throughout the years animals that have tested positive to parasites (including heartworm), have been given Faith and then re-tested by Coburg Health & Nutrition as well as independent vets and the subjects were parasite free.
To date there are no contraindications exhibited between Faith and known parasitic medications.
YES! Remember, approx. 95% of people have worms. The human label is coming very soon and there is absolutely nothing wrong with consuming the canine & feline label of Faith. You can mix the recommended amounts below in half a glass of water and follow the same Healthy Life Progam shown above. Many people do not like the taste (including myself), hence why the human version will come in capsule form.
Children 10-17: 1/2tsp (1g) per day
Adults 18 and over: 1tsp (2g) per day
You can do what I did for a long time and purchase capsules and a filling machine. It's cheap and easy!

Faith contains ingredients that have a role in assissting the body to flush out harmful toxins usually through the urine. Parasites release toxins that need to come out. Those with a genetic pre-disposition or a weakened immune system may suffer discomfort because the toxins begin to instead come out through the skin (the weakest part of the body), and not the bladder. If you or an animal in your care shows signs of detoxifying through the skin please contact us for further advice or consult a holistically trained or holistically aware health professional.
There are two main schools of thought on how to tackle this problem. One way is to mask the symptoms of the problem by suppressing toxins that are trying to come out. If a person uses drugs to suppress the symptoms they are doing just that - suppressing rather than addressing and once the drugs wear off the subject is back to square one (most times worse than how bad they were when they initially started because now they have more toxins in their system from the drugs).
The other is to help the body flush out all the toxins (and heavy metals) with the implementation of a healthy diet and the use of Faith. Eating clean may cause discomfort during the detoxification process.
I’ve personally witness many dogs get rid of major skin problems (and at the least make them manageable) using Augustine’s SuperBoost and Faith, whilst simultaneously using coconut oil and Augustine’s SuperBath to sooth the skin during the detoxification process.
For example, in January 2013 when summer really kicked in Augustine’s verified weather allergies would cause her to scratch her chin so bad she would bleed. I started her on Faith not long after. When January came around in 2014 when you expect things to get worse with time, Augustine still exhibited signs of weather allergies but she no longer scratched and made herself bleed – it was and still is completely tolerable for her. Here is a before and after photo taken one year apart...
Little Mishka the Maltese licked and chewed at her paws for over 12 years. Five months into using faith along with the Augustine’s SuperFood diet the madness ceased.
If you or an animal in your care suffers from what appears to be allergies please contact us so we can further assist you.
Please don't take my word for what you are about to read. I suggest you do your own research and I am confident you will find everything to be true.
In the 1950's and 1960's the Eisenhower and JFK administrations gave the go ahead to the Polio vaccines. These vaccines were grown on monkey kidneys. Indeliberately the two former presidents were responsible for infecting 198 million Americans with sexually transmittable monkey viruses. These viruses are linked to birth defects, loss of vision and are known for their ability to cause cancerous responses.
You see, the US government realised what they had done and this is one of the reasons why in President Nixon's first week in office he declared a war on cancer. These viruses take decades to set in and the US government predicted that approx. 20-30 years later there would be an outbreak of brain cancers. They weren't wrong.
It is said that these viruses can be activated by chemo and radiation. So here’s my theory… a lady goes in for “therapy” for breast cancer. 10-12 months later she has throat and/or brain cancers. Coincidence?
What is really concerning is that I have called a number of western medicine laboratories asking if they would carry out blood tests to seek out these viruses and they were not only surprised that someone would ask, but also were forward about wanting to know why I wanted to test for such things.
I have personally sent in excess of 150 people and animals for analysis in approximately 1.5 years and every single one of them came back positive with at least one such virus. Most also came back with candidiasis. Those that I kept in contact with that stuck by Faith were virus free and had candida back to acceptable levels. Please note that I had no intention of ever bringing Faith to market and my only intention at the time was to steer people into the right direction so I did not keep my own records.
You are welcome to contact Coburg Health & Nutrition anytime for analysis or to request more information about.
Faith contains herbs that are wild grown and these fall outside organic certification guidelines.
Here is a short video with two practical examples:
Faith works differently to other products in its field and as you've already read, it may assist with a lot more than just parasites. After the initial six month Kick Start Cleanse, Faith becomes even more cost effective because the feeding amount is permanently reduced. The chart below illustrates how many grams of Faith your dog or cat will require during the first year and subsequent years.
*It costs less to feed puppies and kittens because in most instances the daily feeding amount is reduced to half. Depending on the age your puppy or kitten starts using Faith, the first annual amount required will vary.

My two 7 years Labradors have never had such shine, healthy coat & no fleas.
Posted by Leesa Mcgill on 7th Mar 2017
I have been feeding Faith to my two dogs and two cats for a couple of years now.
I have not once in all that time had to buy a flea treatment, nor have I had to deworm them.
My animals and I live a very organic life and Faith fits in perfectly. It is so much cheaper than chemical products and as I refuse to put poison on my animals, Faith is excellent for us.
Would and do recommend to anyone.

I have been feeding Augustine's SuperBoost and Faith for only about two weeks and have already noticed a change in my Mini Foxie, who has had skin allergies and flea allergy dermatitis from the age of 3 (she's now 12).
Although she has been fed raw all her life, I believe that over vaccinating has caused her issues, which has been confirmed by two holistic vets.
Since the introduction of Augustine's SuperBoost and Faith into her diet, she no longer has open sores on her back from itching and biting at her skin, and will never be vaccinated again.
Phivo, you are truly an inspiration to the canine world and your work is heartfelt and honest.
I am a huge fan and encourage you to take your dogmatic attitude to the world and show them how our beloved animals should be fed with raw/organic foods that enhance their health and wellbeing.

My 10-year-old Labrador, Drusilla, suffered from skin problems all her life - primarily in her ears and paws.
Her condition was diagnosed by the local veterinarian using ear swabs and skin scrapes as Malassezia Folliculitis (yeast).
Drusilla was regularly prescribed Dermotic for her ears and Neocort cream for her paws. We also fed a raw diet but infections still popped up weekly.
When Drusilla’s paws continued to flare up we were told about a new drug called Atopica. Silly me put her on it for a few months. Her stools became loose, bright in colour and were covered in mucous. The drug initially controlled some pruritus however after a few weeks all symptoms returned. I stopped giving Atopica within a few months after I read the long list of terrible short and long term side effects!
The vet then recommended the new flavour of the month - Apoquel. After 7 years of vet treatments, this time I said no! I researched for natural products and stumbled across Faith.
Drusilla has been on Faith for 9 months. We have also cut out chemical wormers and flea products.
I saw clear improvements within one month. She has not had Malassezia in her ears for 6 months. Her paws and ears have been the best I have seen them in 8.5 years!
Thanks once again Phivo.

My two Malteze x Shih Tzu dogs, age 13 and 6, have enjoyed a natural diet all their lives.
The moment I discovered Augustine's SuperBoost and Faith I began to add them to their food.
Both my dogs are in exceptional good health, are vibrant and full of energy, and appear to be overall happy.
They have soft coats and no doggie smells. I highly recommend these products!
Our gratitude Phivo, for creating these great products for our Furry Friends.

My Mini Schnauzer has over time developed 'tingling' skin to the point that when you run your hands down his back, he would twitch and wiggle. I have tried various products like Skin Eze tablets with limited success. I switched to Faith and within hours, the 'tingling' sensation disappeared.
I am hoping this continues to improve over time with Faith but the results have been better than what I could have ever hoped for.
My dogs have been on Augustine's SuperBoost for 3 months so far and I have been really happy with the results.
I just wish I had found this earlier as it may have saved my other beloved mini that I lost to liver toxicity.
I highly recommend these products - they work.

My girl Sunny is a 2-year-old Dogue de Bordeaux x Sharpei. I’ve had her since she was 9 weeks old and she has constantly struggled with ear infections, gunky eyes and severe rashes.
Sunny has been to the vet more times than I can count to be given injections and tablets and we’ve even tried medicated baths.
The vet advised that the cause was the plants in my backyard, the seasons, her Sharpei coat and finally it was suggested it may be her food (the very expensive food that I bought from the vet).
When she was 10 months old it was suggested by the vet that Sunny be given highly processed, prescription dry food and among the list of ingredients was bird feathers.
There was no way I was going to feed this stuff to my dog and I knew there had to be a better way.
I read everything I could get my hands on about dog food allergies. I switched her diet to fresh kangaroo meat, fruit, veggies and coconut oil.
Her diet change really helped, but what gave her the boost was when discovered Augustine Approved.
Sunny has Augustine’s SuperBoost and Faith added to her meals daily and now she is a totally different dog! I noticed the results within a couple of weeks. She stopped itching, her coast became shiny, her ears and eyes cleared up and she now has much more energy. Sunny’s overall disposition is completely different - she is such a happy dog!
Sunny has no issues with worms or fleas and I am always complimented by other dog parents at the park on how healthy she looks. Lastly, I have now switched to a holistic vet that understands my dog’s needs better.
I am so grateful for everything you have done for my dog, and all dogs. Since learning about all the harmful and toxic things I use to put into my dogs, I have commenced studying to become an animal naturopath. I want to spread the message to all dog lovers that food is medicine.

During the first few months of adopting gorgeous Snowy, we were making regular vet visits to the vet for his skin. He wasn't sure if Snowy’s allergies were food related or environmental and suggested to try an elimination diet of special dry food.
Just a few days into the diet, Snowy had a huge allergic reaction. I felt so bad seeing him like this and was desperate for a solution.
I started to do my own research and then I found out about Augustine Approved. After adding Augustine’s SuperBoost and Faith to Snowy’s diet, I could already see his skin clearing in just one week. Four weeks later the dog groomer could not believe how good he looked!
It has been more than 6 months now and our boy hasn't had any problems since!
I can't thank and recommend Augustine Approved enough for their amazing products!
Lots of boxer kisses!

We've been feeding Faith to our dog Tango for almost three years.
When we first discovered Augustine Approved, Tango was having worm tablets from the vet but sadly tests showed that she still had worms!
Within a month of adding Faith to her diet, the parasites were gone! The best part is that it doesn't contain the nasty chemicals that the tablets had, AND it helps with fleas.
Tango and Mertle love Faith and Augustine's SuperBoost and their coat keeps on shining indicating great health.
Thanks Phivo and the AA team!

My little Yorkie loves Faith, it's like the best treat to him.
It also happens to be very effective. His coat is shinier and last year when we lived in a very dry area of México where fleas abound, thanks to Faith and a topical spray, I never saw a single flea.
I highly recommend Faith.
