Parsley is, by far the most commonly mentioned of herbs in recipes all over the world. Parsley is full of vitamins and also contains a whole host of minerals too, including iron, calcium, potassium, copper, magnesium, manganese and iodine. Throughout history, Parsley Teas have been used mainly as kidney stone, bladder infection, and jaundice medications, as well as digestive aids. This four-page report shows how to grow, harvest, and use Parsley in your kitchen and bathroom to make great meals and herbal treatments.
As one of those people who is allergic to antibiotics, over the past several years, I have tried to learn of some alternatives to a prescription.
Most people know by now the Echinacea (purple coneflower) is an all natural antibiotic, and each winter, I begin taking a daily Echinacea supplement when the rest of the world runs out to get their flu shot.
When I do get sick, especially if there’s some digestive disorder with the illness, I take activated charcoal. Now, activated charcoal in a power is messy, messy stuff. It’s nasty, tastes terrible, turns your mouth and teeth and tongue black… But in my experience, it does “flush” (literally) many of the toxins out of your system within 24 hours.
These two items have been staples in my medicine cabinet now for about ten years.
Recently however, I was diagnosed with an internal infection, and I wanted something a little more potent.
So, four days ago, I put myself on a garlic routine.
Garlic is a wonderful healer. It has antiseptic and antibiotic properties, and it good for those with high blood pressure as well. However, the way you figure out your dosage is by smell.
If you can’t smell it coming out your pores (or out in the bathroom) you aren’t taking enough.
In order to activate the healing properties of garlic, you have to slice it, and let it get some air. Then, pop the slices in your mouth, and wash them down with some water.
My dosage – found after two days – was three cloves a day, three times a day.
In addition, at night, I put slices of garlic on the bottom of my feet, wrap gauze on them to hold them in place, put socks on, and go to bed.
I was feeling really good about this holistic routine, and was feeling much better, but tomorrow morning, I have a business meeting -
and I stink.
I smell like a restaurant kitchen on Italian night.
So tonight I’m gonna skip the garlic feet, and my evening slices of cloves.
Tomorrow, I put on the most expensive perfume I have on my body, which I will cover heavily with deodorant.
The downfalls of the holistic approach.
