this week is about the herb Astragalus, and like most herbs there is not enough scientific evidence to determine whether or not it is effective for any or all treatments.
Astragalus is used for common cold, upper respiratory infections, allergies, fibromyalgia, anemia, HIV/AIDS, and to strengthen and regulate the immune system. it is also used for chronic fatigue syndrome, kidney disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Astragalus is commonly uses in combination with other herbs. I use this here personally for my Epsien Barr Virus to help with my already compromised immune system.
Have a wonderful week. Thank you

This week is about Elderberries. Tis the season to get out and pick them. Elderberries make great syrups, tinctures, cakes, you can put them in anything. they are a good antioxidant. good for sore throats, help to minimize the duration of the flu and colds. Its great in teas with lemon and honey for those sore throat that creep up. Best to take as the first sign of a cold or flu. Works even better with Echinacea, white willows bark, wild cherry bark, and some lavender or chamomile. Stay well and have a great week.

This week is about an herb that everyone has some interest in. Bloodroot. I got some of this information on the website below. please read the entire website.
Ancient medicine grounded in good science
Historically, Blood Root was used by the Native Americans to heal many aliments such as stomach problems, respiratory issues and removal of superficial tumors and warts.
Established research in PubMed, science direct and Medline suggest that the alkaloids in Blood Root are good candidates as chemo-therapeutic regimes and successful immune therapies. In fact, positive effects have been shown in laboratory studies for prostate, breast, pancreatic plus many other types of cancer. How does Blood Root kill cancer cells? There are numerous studies that detail the effects of Sanguinarine and cellular reproduction. The bottom line is that it causes cancer cell apoptosis meaning that it causes cancer cells to die.
The beauty of Blood Root is that it does not harm healthy cells, but only kills the cancer cells. How wonderful is that??!!
But I must caution you that Blood Root by nature is an emetic and if not taken properly, can cause nausea and make you vomit.
DO NOT attempt to follow a regime of Blood Root on your own! - See more at: http://www.naturalhealth365.com/cancer_treatments/blood-root.html#sthash.0epvqLci.dpuf

This week is about Gout. What is Gout you say, well imagine that some of the liquid in your body suddenly turned into glass and then that glass shattered. That is similar to what happens when you have a gout attack. the liquid is called uric acid, a normal by product of protein metabolism. That liquid changes into tiny crystals and settles into the joints. Nasty!! Right?!. So of course you will have to watch what you eat and drink.
1. Drink water, to wash away the uric acid
2. Eat cherries, these will help prevent or even abort a gout attack.
3. Apple Cider Vinegar, take a tablespoon for relief and to prevent gout attacks.
4. Take Vitamin B6 and Magnesium for better hydrated tissues.
5. Avoid high purine foods and alcohol.
Hope this helps. Have a great week.

This week herbs are about those pesty flies.
To repel flies with herbs. Put out of bowl of orange and lemon peels mixed with dried cloves. Also if you plant rue and tansy near the doorways they will help to prevent the pests form entering the house.
Also you can use oils. flies don't like the scent of lavender, eucalyptus. or cedar. use ore or a combination of these essential oils in an aromatherapy diffuser or on a cotton ball placed around the room. add a few drops of an oil to small bowls of hot water to help disperse the scent throughout the room.
Thanks again until next week.

This week Herbs are for those who suffer from Eczema. First you want to switch your creams to for course an herbal cream that contains skin healing herbs such as calendula, comfrey and/or plantain. Then some essential oils or lavender and tea tree. Both of theses oils work directly on the eczema, as well as on the secondary bacterial fungal infections that can result.
Cream is typically better than a salve, especially if your eczema is dry and your skin is cracked.
Remember I have a eczema cream that works wonders.
Thanks again for your visit.
