DIY: Alkaline Medicinal Herbs

I am going to share the information from one of the most important chapters of Aqiyl Aniys' book below. This is the information from chapter 4. I was going to photocopy it and past it but I decided against it because that would be too tacky. Plus the book does not come in color. So I spruced it up a bit by adding colored photos and information of my own in rectangular text boxes boxes. You probably won't be able to see the line to the boxes because my background is black, but it is where all the order information and prices are listed. I added that. Be sure to order a copy of his book and show support even though I am giving you the prominent points for free. This blog may not always be available.

So here goes Chapter 4:

Arnica
Arnica (Arnica montana, Radix Ptarmicae Montanae, arnica flowes, mountain tobacco) is a powerful anti-inflammatory and antiseptic herb. It is used primarily to treat external wounds, and it relieves pain and promotes tissue regeneration. Arnica is used externally in the form of creams and compresses to treat arthritis, sprains, bruises, and headaches. Arnica infusions are used for its antiseptic properties to clean wounds, abscesses, and boils. Dr. Sebi uses arnica as part of his uterine wash compound.
                Origin: North America                                                                 
                General commercial dose: Arnica is used primarily as a topical cream.

BLADDERWRACK

Bladderwrack (Fucus vesiculosus, focus) is used primarily because it has a high source of iodine. Bladderwrack has been used traditionally to treat an underactive and oversized thyroid and to treat iodine deficiency. Bladderwrack is also rich in calcium, magnesium, and potassium, and it contains other trace minerals. Bladderwrack contains numerous phytonutrients, which are credited with its many health benefits. Fucoxanthin anchors its antioxidant benefits. Bladderwrack has antiestrogenic effects and has been shown to lower the risk of estrogen-dependent diseases. Bladderwrack lowers lipid and cholesterol levels and supports weight loss. Its mucopolysaccharide phytonutrients inhibit skin enzymes from breaking down in the skin, reduce skin thickness, and improve elasticity. Bladderwrack has also shown anticandida, antibacterial, and antitumor properties.

Bladderwrack is used as a natural iodine supplement, and one 580mg capsule contains around 155 percent of iodine’s recommended daily value. It is interesting that the Japanese intake of iodine is 1000 – 3000mcg per day without any side effects.
