All weeds heal!
I have always said: “If you do not want to get sick – dig up only three roots from the garden – burdock, cob and dandelion.
From these roots make a healing herbal mixture and drink it.
I collect 25 roots myself, but not all people can do it, so all three are enough for you. “
Cod is a stubborn weed that the Lord literally gives us under our feet to use for healing. There is no garden in which it does not grow. There is no disease that cannot be cured, starting with the eyes and ending with oncology. It is used to treat all wild animals, cats and dogs. It is invaluable for humans in that it restores impaired metabolism.
The infusion and decoction of this root are used for edema of various origins, cystitis, urinary incontinence, kidney and gallbladder stones, diseases of the lungs, kidneys, chronic bronchitis, intestinal diseases, diabetes, hypertension. Cod roots are also used as a painkiller for gout, rheumatism, lumbago, arthritis.
The juice and decoction of the fresh plant can be taken throughout the summer – an excellent remedy for partial vision loss. It also treats low back pain, ovarian dysfunction in women, tuberculosis, exudative diathesis, abrasions. There are no contraindications to its use. From the roots of the cob we ground flour and made bread. It is much more useful and tasty than wheat bread. From it you can make porridge, coffee …
Dandelion is also a weed. In early spring, collect dandelion leaves, soak them for two hours in salt water to extract their bitterness, and make a salad. From its leaves we boil soup and roast the roots. Dandelion roots treat malignant anemia, stomach and liver cancer, lymph node inflammation, diathesis, osteoarthritis, arthritis, deforming osteochondrosis, all joints. In autumn, if you see a dandelion that has not bloomed and has not given all its strength to the color, dig it up.
Dandelion blooms in April-May and now is the time to take a nice walk in nature and pick from these sunny and full of nutrients colors. To make honey, you need: 400 g of flowers, without stalks (4-5 handfuls), per 1 liter of liquid – 1 kg of sugar, 1 lemon, 1/2 tsp lemon juice.
The collected flowers are flooded with about 1.5 – 1.8 liters of cold water. Add 1 lemon, finely chopped and place the mixture on the stove. Boil for 10-15 minutes. Leave to stand for 12 hours and then strain through gauze, squeezing the flowers well. The liquid is measured. To 1 liter of decoction add 1 kg of sugar. The dish is placed on the stove and initially boiled over high heat, then reduced. The honey is tasted with a drop dropped on a plate. If the drop does not spill, then the honey is ready. Don’t be fooled by seeing that the consistency is thinner. After cooling, the honey will thicken.
A minute before removing the honey from the stove, add lemon juice.
The honey is poured hot, in warmed jars and turned upside down.
There is a natural “academician” who cures all diseases. This burdock academician is sitting on the ground waiting for people to take him and start treatment with him. Now almost everyone suffers from some disease. And burdock cures diabetes, bronchitis, sinusitis, rheumatism, gout, arthritis, low back pain, bone fracture, intervertebral hernia, atherosclerosis, ear disease, chronic coronary insufficiency.
Burdock root cures liver tumors, even cirrhosis of the liver, cholecystitis, kidney disease, kidney stones and gall bladder.
It also treats all skin diseases: burns, bedsores, eczema, hair loss, psoriasis, lupus erythematosus, etc.
How to prepare herbs?
To prepare the medicinal infusion, take two tablespoons topped with the herbal mixture (herbs are mixed in equal proportions), pour them into a porcelain or enameled teapot and pour two cups of boiling water. Cover with a lid or towel and let stand for 30 minutes. Strain through two or three layers of cheesecloth or strainer and drink half a cup, three times a day, 10-15 minutes before eating. Prepare a fresh infusion every day, as it is useless to drink yesterday’s.
The course of treatment lasts from one to one and a half months. It is mandatory to drink the same herb for at least a month. Herbs do heal, but they do it slowly, imperceptibly, sparingly.
To avoid getting used to it, take a five-day break after the end of the treatment, and then continue to drink the infusion. Neglected diseases should be treated for three to five months. It is better not to boil the herbs in a thermos – there the water is dead. It is better to use teapots. You can drink the infusion both hot and cold. But you should cook it every day, preferably in the morning (you can drink it prepared all day). There are also poisonous weeds, but they also serve people – hemlock, tatul.
They should be soaked in vodka and drunk in drops. There are harmless grasses – such as patchouli. There are also slightly toxic herbs such as celandine, tansy, wormwood. From them you can brew only one teaspoon per two cups of boiling water.
Rule for boiling the roots
The most valuable roots are in early spring, but can be dug in the fall. Burdock is a biennial plant. Dig up the roots of annual burdock, whose leaves are young – this root is the strongest.
And burdock with dry leaves and already formed fruits are useless, they have already given all their power to flowering. You can pick its fruits, prepare a decoction from them and rinse your aching teeth – to relieve pain. The roots are dug up, washed and dried.
Burdock roots are thick, so you need to cut them. One tablespoon of dried, finely chopped roots, pour two cups of boiling water. Leave them on the stove for ten minutes.
Infuse for two hours, strain and drink half a cup, three times a day, 10-15 minutes before meals. When you drink the medicinal infusion before a meal, the blood immediately absorbs it and spreads throughout the body. You can drink a mixture of burdock root, cod and dandelion in equal proportions, or just one of the roots: the first week – burdock, the second – dandelion, the third – cod.
