Prickly ash bark
- Interesting history with this one: and like others, it is best utilized in combination with other herbs.
- Currently everyone is focused on the china virus – covid 19 – but prickly ash has a long history with other china-based illnesses.
- Example: Asiatic cholera pandemic of 1846-63
- This one landed on our NY shores in 1848 and by 1850 it had spread all the way to California.
- It was during this time that our native American Indians were discovered to be using prickly ash bark as an expectorant, cold remedy and all-around solution to what was going on in the world at that time.
- Supports the cardiovascular system: palpitations, sluggish circulation with cold limbs, arterial tension
- Supports the digestive system: IBS/bowel cramps, etc.
- I include it in my hoxsey formula for GI issues, detoxing, chronic skin conditions, cancers and a few other things
- Back in the day, this plant was used to make a very tasty beverage. Those days are long gone now but this root, along with sassafras, were used to make root beer.
- The flavor comes from the saponin content of the sarsaparilla roots
- Supports the blood in an amazing way – great for eliminating heavy metal contaminants that float in the air (think large metro areas)
St john's wort
- Known for its uses in depression but did you know it supports the gi system? Indigestion, gassiness, diarrhea, dysentery
- Eases adrenal fatigue and stress
- Supports the digestive system and respiratory system
- This one comes from the romans where hypocrites used it for coughs
- It was used primarily as a flavoring but it also helped support the digestive system.
- Today it is still used to flavor candies and bakery goods but it also used to flavor some cough medicine. That’s probably why so many people dislike anise these days lol
- This one is a hidden gem and used very sparingly.
- Which is a good things since it’s a brown seaweed and can taste as such
- This gem supports the thyroid and calms the “cold & clammy”
- Do not use with blood thinners, heart medications, pregnancy and lactation.
- We have other things for that
