Come on! Go get some rye bread, Swiss cheese, a cherry tomato and some alfalfa with a touch of safflower mayo. Put them all together and enjoy real food! O.K., not going to happen, huh? Well, listen to why it should.
Alfalfa is an herb that is so overlooked it’s sad. Yet, it has eight essential amino acids that are so very important to our bodies. Alfalfa is rich with vitamin K and it is four times higher in vitamin C than orange juice. It has all the minerals and vitamins we need to live.
Did you know Alfalfa combats infectious diseases by building our systems into strong fighting machines? Supposedly, from what I’ve read in herb books and in a few health reports; Alfalfa makes our immune system strong enough to fight off some cancers and other degenerative diseases like arthritis. I didn’t know that.
I discovered Alfalfa just by chance. I had heard Alfalfa was good for Asthma (which I have) and started taking it for that, but within weeks I noticed the stiffness and pain I had from Traumatic Arthritis (because of a bad car accident) in my hands had started to FEEL normal. The doctors told me my hands would never be the same or work the way they once did, but today I move them just like I did before the accident. Had I known about the affects of Alfalfa I would have started it as soon as the disease hit me, but I didn’t know. So, I still have a few of the frozen knuckles, but today my hands feel like they did before the car accident.
I couldn’t believe it. Why didn’t my doctor tell me about alfalfa? Instead I get gloom and doom. Aren’t Doctors supposed to know about things that can cure us? Why don’t Doctors know more about herbs and why isn’t herbal studies a part of their training?
I realize you’re wrinkling your nose just thinking about eating alfalfa, but did you know, it has been used to settle upset stomachs since the late fourteenth century? Yap and it’s been used for centuries to cure kidney problems, earaches, and coughs.
Some of the main diseases Alfalfa helps, as listed in “The Little Herb Encyclopedia” By Jack Ritchason N.D., are, allergies, anemia, arthritis, asthma, bell’s palsy, bursitis, Cancer (colon prevention), diabetes, fatigue (mental & physical – and I can verify this one too! It works better than coffee for energy when you’re punching a deadline), gout, rheumatism, tooth decay, and so many more. It’s an amazing herb.
Just thought I would share this. BTW, you can get Alfalfa in pill form at your local Health Food Store. Just incase you don’t make that sandwich.
Have a Happy New Year!!!
Hugs to all
