I have practiced herbal nutrition for several years, and would like to share some of my favorites, "things I would not do without".
Some have been previously mentioned:
YARROW: This is great for digestive problems, but is also an excellent ANTI-VIRAL, effective against ANY virus: digestive, respiratory, any virus from
HIV to herpes.
ECHINACEA: Builds up the immune system's white blood cell count; use along with yarrow.
DULSE: I have been using this seaweed to rid myself of the effects of Depleted Uranium now found all over the world, as it removes radioactivity from
the body. DU affects bone marrow and kidneys, and depletes the immune system. I have felt better and stronger since beginning this a month ago.
HAWTHORN BERRIES: These are great for strengthening the heart muscle and the circulatory system. Many European doctors have used them for years
instead of pharmaceuticals.
CHAMOMILE FLOWERS: Have a calming effect on the nervous system without making you drowsy. Don't use if you have "hay fever".
BEE POLLEN: Gives a nice long lasting energy boost without making you "hyper". Full of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and more for good
ALFALFA: Also full of vitamins and essential minerals. Great blood cleanser, supports liver function. Used for arthritis relief. Supplements a diet
poor in nutrition, alkalinizes an acid condition.
DANDELION: Lots of minerals. Builds the blood, has lots of iron content, supports the liver. Great for skin rashes, fatigue, poor diet.
If faced with problems getting or affording food, try to stay away from sugar and carbohydrates, which will sap your energy and "fry" your nerves as
well as turn into fat stores. People tend to turn to breads, pastas, chips, processed grain foods and other cheap junk foods just to fill up and kill
the hunger. This is about as good for the body as just eating paper or cardboard. Eat as many veggies and fruit as possible.
Don't count on GM foods like corn and rice to give you nutrition. They won't have it, and will have serious effects on the body instead.
