Herbs & Superfoods

DSC03598Here are few herbs/plants and various superfoods I love or am fascinated by:

Self-heal: grows as a weed in oh so many places. Chew a bit, spit it out and put it on a wound or dry scratchy skin (including eczema) and Bingo Bango, your skin will heal oh SO fast!

Stinging Nettles: the sting hurts, yes, but it causes blood to flow like crazy to that spot, which can be helpful! And they taste so great steamed or sauteed. And make a fabulous tea.

Oregon Grape Root can save the world, says friend and herbalist, Rosalee de la Foret.

Cod liver oil! See Weston A. Price website for more.  I get my cod liver oil here.

Coconut oil!  Raw, organic, cold-pressed.

Chocolate: Organic, free-trade, bittersweet dark chocolate.  There are several amazing recipes in the menu on the left that have a bit of honey as the only sweetener and are amazing.

Astaxanthin: I  started taking one small pill of astaxanthin this spring and STOPPED using all sunscreen. Result? The barest sunburns that faded in less than 12 hours, when the same exposure without astaxanthin would have resulted in painful peeling skin for days. The Most Powerful Nutrient Ever Discovered for Eye Health

Toothpaste: How to brush your teeth with just baking soda (and NOT remove your enamel!). Bentonite clay is also a great toothpaste, all by itself.

Bentonite Clay: Actually, bentonite clay is great for just about everything. Topically, internally, you name it, we love it. Here’s another page about clay.

Eczema: If diet and bentonite clay and tallow have not helped, here’s a page with more ideas (which I have not tried) for dealing with eczema.

Moringa or Drumstick TreeWhile no one food gives us all the nutrition we need, Moringa Oleifera, comes closer than anything else.  Moringa, with its 90 plus nutritional compounds, is the most nutrient rich plant discovered to date.

This site has a huge amount of detailed information about Moringa.

Moringa leaf boosts your energy in a natural manner, and is a remarkable source of nutrition. This energy promotion does not happen because of sugar, so it is lasts for a long time. Individuals ingesting it say that their ulcers are healed, tumors restricted, there are reduction in the arthritis pains and inflammations, controlled blood pressure, the skin problems are restored, and finally they have stronger defenses against diseases.

I get my moringa here.
