I recenlty asked for tips on medicine that we could use when the drug companies get smashed. True to form as a southern woman, Charli Gribble has supplied the first post on the matter.
Infection: Cayenne, Garlic, Golden Seal, Aloe
with golden seal, make tea from the roots of the plant.
It is native to the eastern united states & Canada. It belongs to
the buttercup family and resembles the Raspberry.
The Indians used this plant originally as a stain and dye. It (the roots) contain several
valuable alkaloids of which Hydrastis is the most important. It's action
is tonic, detergent and laxative. It also has a corrective local effect on
the mucous membranes. It is of much value in inflammations of the
colon and rectum.
Aloe: excellent for topical infections.......just skin a piece and rub it on
the area infected. I always soak the cut with hot salt water first, then
put the aloe on it. It also will soften the skin, and it is good for burns
of any kind..........
High Blood Pressure: Celery Seed, Feverfew, Garlic, Juniper, Valerian
celery seed: prepare a tea by pouring boiling water over 1 tsp. of
freshly crushed seeds. Let it steep for about 20 min. before drinking.
feverfew: chew on the leaf of the plant. You can grow it yourself.
Take root cuttings and plant them when the temp. reaches 70dg. Space
plants 18 in. apart in partial shade or grow them in flower pots indoors.
Pinch back flower buds to promote bushiness. Harvest leaves when they
become mature. Do not plant near plants requiring bee pollination, bees
avoid this plant.
OK......that is enough for tonight.......I will send you more tomorrow.
I got to try to fix this stupid chair before it throws me out, stupid
danged wheelchair anyway!
Charli is a wonderful lady and has a lot of friends.
