It’s funny to me that I am now in my 40’s and people who are much younger than me call me "kiddo.” Really? Good genes,perhaps, good food, and staying out of the sun? I promise you my three sisters are not ever called Kiddo, ever. When my Mom fell two weeks ago, I immediately got her on a regimen of natural remedies to relieve the bruising and heal her wounds quickly. What do you turn to when you need to heal? Top for me is Ashitaba, great to eat as a fresh leaf or HERE in extract form from Linda; read her story if you can. It’s a Gigantic Dose of Vitamin B’s. I discovered Ashitaba from a friend in San Diego who cured her breast cancer with it; it’s a mood elevator for me and simply fantastic~
For bruising, there is nothing better than Arnica cream, from any health store, once or twice daily; this made Mom’s facial bruising go away fast, and so made her feel back to normal. I also give Mom a daily set of fish oil and vitamins from Dr. Perricone. Expensive, but from time to time they are worth it~
Most importantly, I give my Mom a native American root called Bear Root aka Osha root, thank you to John & Marge for showing me how to use this. The whole root is at right here; this is the best way to buy it. If not, at left, you see it slightly mashed up, you can buy at Mastoska Trading. I do not totally understand this root. It is anti-bacterial, and I swear a super cellular regenerator. Chew a pinch of the root and apply the poultice overnight to a wound and in 3-4 days a moderate wound is back to normal. This has been a wonder for my Mom over multiple injuries. The scrapes on her nose went away completely after three days when I taped the root poultice to her nose~
On an ongoing basis, get the root into your system anyway you can. Eat it plain, or make a tea with purified water~
thought you’d like a pic of the tea in Guy’s copper spoon ~
the finished tea looks like this; Mom now drinks a litre of this a day; I also drink it, as do my dogs, they love it instead of their water and it keeps any fleas at bay in the hot weather; I rinse them in it after a bath~
There are other roots which are great; here the Bear root and bitter root; find a good source and ask re your symptoms. It’s easier in France as every pharmacie is homeopathic, but you probably can’t find bear root there~
Wash it down with a nice bottle of French water if you can, Badoit is my fave!~ find it here at Cost Plus World Market~
Nothing is better for the body than fresh organic. Try to eat well if you can….
I am overwhelmed with the parents and back to work I hope soon.
Please try to eat well….
Several packages going out tomorrow.
Eat well and SO many thanks for all your good wishes~
