What is Faith?
Originally Faith™ was a locally known herbal food dietary supplement that has been working wonders for almost 15 years, 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. 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 in the things that Faith has a role in helping with. 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.
Whose diet can Faith be added to?
- (healthy for people too - human version in capsules coming soon)
4 piece measuring spoon set included.
How does Faith compare to other products in its field?
Faith does not contain pesticides or harmful chemicals.
Synthetic copies of what is found in nature make poor substitutes and are often toxic.
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.
Is this product suitable for my dog or cat?
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 to use a different product.
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.

Candida and yeast... will this help to restore healthy gut balance?
From my experiences Faith has been very successful in promoting a healthy gut balance, and in turn bringing candida and yeast into normal and healthy 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 does not support candida overgrowth - a diet of processed foods high in sugars and simple carbohydrates encourages Candida overgrowth as yeasts thrive on processed sugars.
Can I eat this stuff too?
YES! The human label of Faith has been approved by the TGA for human consumption in capsule form. 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
Side effects vs detoxification
Faith contains ingredients that have a role in assissting the body to flush out harmful toxins usually through the urine. Those with a genetic pre-disposition or a weakened immune system (compromised liver and kidneys), 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.
Skin problems... help!
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.
Why isn't Faith certified organic?
Faith contains herbs that are wild harvested and these fall outside organic certification guidelines. We have source certified organic ingredients and are now in the process of certifying Faith as organic.
What are the best ways to incorporate Faith into my dog or cat's diet?
- Mix into any food with or without virgin cold-pressed coconut oil, olive oil or molasses.
- Serve as a standalone treat - mix in a bowl with a small amount of virgin cold-pressed coconut oil, olive oil or molasses.
- Visit our website for tips and tricks and to find out how to easily fill capsules.

How long will a 260g jar of Faith last?
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.
Do not take remedially. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
