Stomach Acidity Help

Problems with the stomach are usually due to an imbalanced diet and may be controlled in the long run by becoming in tune with digestibility of the food eaten.

This recipe can be made into a decoction or put into capsule form.  If decoction is made, take 1/2 cup of the "tea" or 2 gel caps every hour as needed, or until your symptoms disappear.

1 part Dandelion Root
1 part Slippery Elms
1/8 part Goldenseal
1/8 part Calamus Root

And, feel better!!

Herbal Remedy to Detox and Rebuild The Liver

This herbal blend is a great one if you have a sluggish liver.
I have been making natural medicines for my family for years now, and they help us so much.  If you haven't done so in the past, you really need to try it.  Natural, full of wholesome goodness, there is so much benefit from our plants (or weeds!) around us. 
1 part Oregon Grape Root (also works as a natural antibiotic)
1 part Wild Yam Root (also helps balance hormones)
1 part Dandelion Root, Raw (also works as a natural diuretic)
1/4 Licorice (works as a demulcent)
Simmer herbs  in distilled or natural spring water, place 3 ounces to one quart for 45 minutes.  Remove from heat, then refrigerate.  Take 2 tablespoons 3-4 times daily, between meals.  Do NOT add sweetners.  You may increase the licorice slightly to buffer the taste slightly, or add a small amount of water to your daily dose, if needed.
NOTE:  You can also encapsulate this using root powers, and take 2 caps 3 times a day.
