Delicious Homemade Yogi Tea Recipe

November 5th, 2007

Yogi tea has a myriad of health benefits. It’s great for digestion, has anti-inflammatory properties, helps regulate blood suger, contains Antioxidants, as well as calcium, iron, and manganese.

Overall, it’s a fantastic herbal tonic and is so delicious that it can actually be addictive! But it’s a healthy one!

This particular version can be made with either dairy or non-dairy milk (i.e. soy, Almond, hemp or dairy milk). Or, if you prefer, you can also make it without milk. When it comes time to add it, you can just substitute the milk for the same amount of water.

This recipe makes a stew-pot size full of tea, so it’s good for a party or you can keep it all for you and/or your family!

So here’s the recipe…

Add the following to three quarts of purified boiling water:

  • 30 whole green Cardamom pods (you can put them in whole or crush the pods slightly to open them a little)
  • 30 whole Black peppercorns
  • 30 whole Cloves

Fight Infections with Three Powerful Herbs

November 5th, 2007

by Susun S. Weed - Author and voice of the Wise Woman Way

Wise women through the centuries have kept themselves and their families safe from contagious diseases. If we are actively dealing with infection, especially lung infections, these three powerful roots stand ready to help us: Elecampane, Echinacea, and poke.

Elecampane (Inula helenium) is a beautiful Sunflower-like perennial found in wet pastures or easily cultivated in a sunny garden spot. The roots are dug in the fall after the plants are established (at least three years) and tinctured in 100 proof vodka for six weeks. Do not use Elecampane in capsules.

I find Elecampane root amazingly powerful in clearing all infections from the lungs. The usual dose is 10-15 drops several times a day, but I would increase the dose and take it as much as 6 times a day in an acute situation. I expect to see results from using Elecampane within a day or less.

Winter Foot Care

November 5th, 2007

Winter is the time when our feet are always covered up. Sweaty feet, cold feet, uncomfortable boots, shoes that don’t fit, manmade boots and materials, so, take your shoes off. Sit back and work on those two feet and make them beautiful!

Now, more than ever, is the time to take care of those tootsies! Bones form the basic structure of our feet. There are 26 bones in each foot alone. Here are some good general tips for all feet:

  • Wash your feet daily. Rinse off all Soap and dry thoroughly, especially between toes.
  • Trim nails straight across, and not too short. Don’t cut out or dig at corners.
  • Do not trim, shave, or use over-the-counter medicines to dissolve corns or calluses
  • Wear clean socks or stockings, changed daily. Don’t wear any that are too short or too tight.
  • Wear shoes that fit.
  • Wear shoes made of leather or canvas - not synthetics.
  • Switch shoes from day to day.
  • Use foot powder.
  • See your doctor if severe problems persist.
