Indigestion

by C Chambers

March 2011

 

for indigestion, use 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of fennugreek seeds in a tea ball strainer in one cup of boiling water, ready for tea. Let seep for 10 minutes and sip. If a sweetner is needed try a little honey or sugar. Good for an upset stomach also. It tames too much stomach acid.

I love your store! I have been very happy with the prices on your herbs, and books as well as the products themselves. Practical Herbalism is one of my favorites, allowing me to successfully treat my husband (who was a skeptic) and his gout. It is exciting to be able to take a few common herbs (formerly known as weeds!) and be able to do good for others. I like having the resources at my fingertips so we don't have to run to the doctor for every issue. I have also had successes with The Immune Booster tincture recipe, and by following advice in The ABC Herbal and The How to Herb Book. I am currently making a Catnip and Fennel tincture for my 7 week-old for his gassy times. Anyhow, thank you for the book recommendations on your website. I tell people about your site whenever I can!

Did You Know?

 

Cayenne powder has been used by researchers in Antarctica to help them bear the extremely cold temperatures. The cayenne powder is sprinkled into their boots before putting them on. As the powder slowly comes in contact with the skin through the socks, it will draw blood to the feet, thus bringing much needed warms to the extremities. The one draw back is the red powder stains light colored socks. From our readings, it seems the stained socks were a small price to pay for the great benefit of being able to feel your toes after a little while out in the blistering cold! After trying this on a number of occasions during the winter near Lake Superior, I'm also convinced the stained socks are worth it.
