You know us Irish girl always have something up our sleeves! ;-)
Now for this weeks blog: HERBS!
Yep, it's been awhile since we talked about alfalfa sandwiches! But, I got such a razing from you girls about that the last time...I'm playing it safe and chatting about other herbs today...ones you don't have to actually eat.
I know a lot of people suffer with ulcers; young and old. Did you know Mastic Gum is a good cure for ulcers. How many of you knew that White Oak Bark as well as Slippery Elm is also good for curing ulcers? Ears perked for anyone even thinking about becoming an author...you'll need this info' soon enough. LOL
Oh...and as an author you'll also have a lot of Migraines so check out Fenugreek, Feverfew, or Lobelia...I hear Feverfew works very well....just don't over do it. Take it easy with this herb...it tends to cause a blister(s) if you take too much.
But did you know White Oak Bark is also good for loose teeth? I know most of you are way too young to worry about loose teeth right now, but it's a seed for storing for later reference when you get old and have a number of things wrong with you like loose teeth, Varicose Veins & Hemorrhoids.
Don't laugh, these are things no one wants to talk about but when we start getting old a lot of us will suffer with one or many of these problems. So this is something to remember...a lot of us are taking care of aging parents who already suffer and this is something to try and see if they get any relief using the herb.
Know anyone who complains of Bronchitis, Nervous Disorders or Chronic Pain, Spasms, or Whooping Cough? Try the herb called Wild Lettuce. It just might help.
What about Stevia? They say Stevia helps with Diabetes, Food Cravings, Hypoglycemia, Sugar Substitute, Tobacco Cravings and Weight Reduction! And you can find it at your local Health food Store! You can cook with it just like you do with sugar. And it comes in Liquid, granular and powered.
So what do you think of that bit of information? Pretty good huh?
O.K., here something for you younger people - Hangovers - try taking Chlorella. They say Scullcap and Thyme (yap, the herb we use on our pork chops and in stuffing once in a while.) are good for that as well...isn't Prom night coming up soon? Collage kids should remember these. LOL
I heard Aloe Vera, Astragalus, Barley Juice Powder, Reishi Mushroom, Pau D'Arco, and Red Clover are all great for those who suffer with AIDS.
Isn't knowledge a wonderful thing?
Have a great week my friends.HUGS
