Have you ever looked around your kitchen and seen it for what it really is? Yes, it’s a place to fix food but it’s also a place of healing…our food is more than nourishment…it’s a healer.
Did you know the Cherokee used Burdock as a healing wash to rid the body of sores and abrasions? It’s also good for getting rid of Poison Ivy. Yap, Comfrey mixed with Burdock makes a wonderful wash for the hands.
They also used Comfrey as a paste to help heal broken bones. But don’t over do the drinking of this herb in a tea form…Canada has banned its use because some research implicated it caused liver disease in humans.
The Cherokee knew a lot about our bodies and about keeping good health.
You know that cucumber going bad in your refrigerator? Well, it’s great medicine for the kidneys (dissolves uric acid build up in kidney and bladder) and your heart. Cucumber rid poisons and toxins form the body. Combine it with Aloe on a burn…wonderful stuff!
How about Cabbage? How many of you eat it, but did you know the Cherokee used it to prevent cancer in the colon and rectum? It also fights the BAD cholesterol! How did they know this so long ago and yet we’re just discovering it?
So….tell me now….who were the savages?
Did you know carrots are a natural antiseptic? The juice is good for swelling and inflammations on the skin? Hummm, me either but the Cherokee did.
So the next time you look around your kitchen… remember it’s not just for fixing food…it’s a place for healing the body and the soul! ;-D
