Mama's Red Raspberry Brew


by Debi Pearl of No Greater Joy Ministries

March 2003

Red Raspberry has a medically proven and trusted track record in helping strengthen the womb of a pregnant woman, and it is also reported to be effective in restoring the womb after delivering.

When I was carrying my babies, I kept a pitcher of Red Raspberry tea made up in the refrigerator so I could drink several glasses a day. I mixed Alfalfa with Red Raspberry so I could double the nutritional value of my daily tea. If I felt bloated like I was holding water, I would add Nettle to the tea. Peppermint was added for flavor and to aid digestion. A simple way of having this tea ready is mixing the dry herbs in a gallon jug.

Ingredients:

8 parts Red Raspberry
3 parts Alfalfa
3 parts Peppermint
2 parts Nettle

Directions

You can make a cup of hot tea by adding 2 or 3 teaspoons of the premixed herbs to 1 cup of boiling water. Let it steep for 5 to 10 minutes, strain, and add honey to taste.

To make a pitcher of tea for storing in the refrigerator, use 10 teaspoons or so of the premixed herbs for 8 cups of boiling water. Let it cool for a while and strain. Discard the used herbs, and put the tea in the refrigerator to drink over ice or reheated.

Did You Know?

Daily sprinkling a little Cayenne powder on the toothpaste on your toothbrush can work miracles in fighting and preventing gum disease. That's right! It will also help deal with other oral ailments that plague many folks these days. After reading about this, we just had to try it. There is a warm sensation in your mouth as you brush your teeth, but it soon disappears after rinsing. As always, whenever using Cayenne powder, you should start with very small amounts to allow the body some time to build up a tolerance. The first few times we used it, we sprinkled so little of the powder on the toothpaste that we didn't feel anything. As the days progressed, we increased the amounts slightly until we felt it was warm enough. After using it for a little while, the nice feeling in your mouth is very satisfying. Be warned, however, that you do not want to overdo this one, so start small.
