Part 11- herbs

The first herb, stinging nettle grows all around here in the foothills of NC.

You can use it in a stew or like spinach.

Doc is the remedy for the stinging nettle usually growing near the stinging nettle. Before messing with stinging nettle it would probably be good to identify the doc.

It is high in minerals. She uses it in a broth. Used to be called stock.

Helps with prostate, anemia.


Very good in a salad.

Anti-itch, make a tea and freeze it into ice cubes, or put a lot in a bath, or warm it into coconut oil, in a double sauce pan, for a anti-itch ointment for psoriasis and eczema.


Looks like chickweed, but if you break a chickweed stem, it'll have a string holding it together.

Radium grows like a little tree. It doesn't spread out like the chickweed. When you break the radium, it has a white milk in the stem.
The white milk in the radium is an irritant so don't eat it.
You can put the milk on a skin cancer, mole or wart and burn it out. Put some oil around the area before applying the radium.

You can put cayenne pepper with other herbs to increase their potency. It and Hawthorne berry she talked about yesterday.

All bitter herbs are good for the liver. All green herbs are high in chlorophyll, plant blood, and the green drinks boost iron in the blood, one of the most potent blood and tissue cleansers.

The dandelion will shoot up only a single stalk will a single flower, and the dandelion stem is hollow. Dandelion leaf, like lions teeth are more sharp, but the leaf is smooth, not furry. The cat's claw looks much the same as the wild opium lettuce we here recognize as a pain killer (she didn't mention the wild lettuce)

"Bitter to the tongue, sweet to the stomach, sweet to the tongue, bitter to the stomach."

Dandelion is the king of garden is the liver herb, and will help the liver recover. Cancer cannot get a hold on the body if the liver is at optimal performance. Lemon water is also a liver building drink, and is an international alkalizer.

One way to eat dandelion is to make a hot potato salad with olive oil (and vinegar or not), chopped up dandelion, garlic and salt. (Celtic or Himalayan) I find the younger leaves are the more tender ones.

She suggests a book by Isabelle Shipard, How Can I Use Herbs In My Everyday Life. She says before you fertilize the garden, plant dandelion as the root will break up the soil, and uses it on her clay soil. She says wood chips as mulch pulls nutrients out of the soil up to where the plants are.

You can buy dandelion root coffee and a drink called Chai Dandelion. And you can sprinkle some dandelion in salads.

Aloe vera,
Has a growth stimulant to to help grow rapid new cells. It's good for coating and soothing the lining of the gut. Great for sore throat, stomach ulcers, irritable bowel, and Crohn's disease. The old ones are the most potent.

Peel it deeply past the yellow sap as it's an irritant, and you are left with just the clear juice.

It helps cell to cell communication which will not allow cancer cells to get a hold on the body. It can even turn cancer around. She mentioned Manitech, and said all their products are based in aloe vera.

Cut the aloe vera and set it in a plate for an hour, and all the yellow slime will drain out. Then you slice the aloe vera leaf thin, put it in a jug of water and after about six hours, start drinking the water. You can add a sprig of mint or squeeze of lemon to make it taste better. You can fill it back up with water once, and use the aloe vera slices twice. She says she drinks a lot of it.

Aloe vera is also a natural probiotic. She says never wash the leafs of the herbs because B12 is an airborne bacteria, and you don't want to wash it off.

You can also dehydrate slices of it after you drain the yellow slime out of it and put a slice in a glass of water, like for when you are traveling.

She didn't mention putting it on burns, but around here, we call it the burn plant as it is very good in burns.

She says comfrey is a remarkable herb. She said don't put it in the garden, it will take over.
It can knit bones, tendons, ligaments and tissue.
In the spring and summer, use the smaller leaves, and autumn and winter, use the roots.
It's an anti-inflammatory.
She tells how to make comfrey cream and tells a story about a lady who had severely broken bones and inflammation they healed using comfrey poultice.

She said the dandelion doesn't take over the garden like many do.

She mentions giving the cancer patients a liter a day of the green drinks and mentions green smoothies.

All your dark green herbs and vegetables are blood purifiers and alkalizers.

Someone in the audience said the stem of the stinging nettle was an antidote for the sting.

She says you can slice kale thin and add Celtic or Himalayan salt and rub it in, and it makes it limp and tender for use in the salad.

Another excellent little video.
