The Hardest Part

  You know, sometimes the hardest part about being a herbalist; a healer: is watching ConeFlowerpeople poison themselves with food, swallow sickly emotion, feed off the negatives of life, complain without action, cling to ridiculous habits, be a prisoner of their own small thoughts and live in such fear of change. Change is hard. But it's only hard because we say it's hard. It's not hard. What's hard is to say it's their path not mine... and watch them live in their burdens. That's the hardest part.

Earth Medicine At Its Finest

Jessica Morgan, M.H.

Do you notice you feel better when you walk barefoot on the Earth? That it makes you feel good? Like when you're hosing down your feet in the wet grass after you've been gardening all day. Well there is no question that walking barefoot is healing and ancient healers believed Earth's energy could be easily absorbed through our skin and through the soles of our feet, thereby stabilizing the electrical environment of our organs, tissues, and cells.

We know that throughout most of evolution humans walked barefoot and slept on the ground, and through this direct contact the ground's abundant free electrons were able to enter the body and help keep it grounded. You see, when the body looses contact with the Earth it can carry a positive voltage and since our modern environment is full of a spectrum of electromagnetic radiation we are disrupting the trillions of subtle electrical communications which are a vital part of the function of our body's systems.  By ditching the rubber shoes and being grounded to the Earth we greatly reduce the levels of these induced voltages. We are electrical beings, and the Earth's surface is electrically conductive.

I think this is Earth medicine at its finest and plays a vital role in preventing dis-ease. Some call it body earthing, or earthing, some call it grounding, but by reconnecting our bodies with the free electrons that flow through the Earths surface we can lower blood pressure, improve respiratory conditions, improve circulation and digestion, reduce stress, reduce sleep problems, aid in pain relief and boost energy levels, our immune system and aid in the harmonization of the body's basic biological rhythms. Sounds good huh. It is, and it is as simple as it sounds. So toss your shoes and walk barefoot on wet grass, river mud, moist soil, beach sand or any beautiful Earth available to you. Go wild, see how good it feels.

As always, please email any questions to herbalist@morganbotanicals.com.

Slimming With Tea

Jessica Morgan, M.H.Many herbs can safely be used for weight loss and provide a natural way to help you lose those excess pounds. Herbal teas will ease digestive disorders, provide increased perspiration, add bulk and cleanse your body; and increase energy, bringing new vitality to your system. Herbs have no calories or fat. But always keep in mind that weight loss involves changing your whole lifestyle.

One must always begin with eating fresh whole foods and sufficient water consumption. I personally enjoy four to six glasses a day, one of which I swirl in a tablespoon of flaxseed.  For those who can’t get down plain water, try adding a squeeze of lemon, lime, or orange juice, or crush up some mint. Eating and living with herbs will bring you a lifestyle that may be more conducive to weight loss. The following list of herbs has been know to aid in weight loss, especially when combined with healthy eating and exercise.

    * Alfalfa - this herb is not only nutritious but also filled with essential amino acids for strength, a cleanser and mild laxative which will help keep your intestinal track in top condition. Mixes great with peppermint.

    * Cayenne - sprinkle cayenne on your food. It contains an ingredient called capsaicin that stimulates saliva, stimulates digestion and increases your metabolism and fat burning safely.

    * Dandelion - A natural diuretic and cleanser with potassium and vitamins. Works gently and naturally to balance your body’s fluids.

    * Calendula - Make this calming floral tea to ease digestive disorders and de-stress your stomach lining and bowels.

    * Oatstraw - A full body tonic with tons of vitamins and minerals. Adds bulk if taken in capsule form.

    * Raspberry - Iced fruit and berry teas will fulfill the need for sweet drinks and sodas- you’ll get fit faster!

    * Sage - Helps increase digestive enzymes and stimulates your liver.

    * Green Tea - This tea is a natural stimulant with the added benefit of vitamin C and flavoniods (compounds that are antioxidants).

    * Ginseng - helps to boost energy and metabolism.

    * Yerba mate - A vitality tea with lots of B vitamins to combat stress. This metabolic stimulant will help your body utilize carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.

Hope you enjoy your herbal slimming teas! Look for these herbs in my local harvest store: Morgan Botanicals. Please email any questions to herbalist@morganbotanicals.com
