It’s a #frienemy!!! Yeah! It’s makes you feel productive (temporarily), more friendlier and you can see the “brighter” side in every situation(temporarily). Some people just like how it taste. (it’s an acquired taste for adults like beer to me—-I don’t like that.😅🤮)

- It takes your appetite (I guess that’s a good thing to some people; but if your GI TRACT is already in “fight or flight” it’s NOT good! It’s probably why you no longer feel the effects of it ——-> that “fight or flight” is a MF! But that’s another topic for another day.

-It dehydrates you (Dry thirsty self!); pulls all of your B vitamins and electrolytes off of you ( and you’re wondering why your hair is always breaking and damaged and your lips are always White).

-It constipates most people; some people say it “flushes me out” <—— that’s a “diarrhea” effect (still dehydrAting).

-It crashes your adrenals (the adrenal cortex) causing fatigue (no energy and lack of motivation) and creates codependency.

-It Causes #depression, anxiety (the jittery “I’m scared for no reason” feeling...

Why I stop adding fruit and sugar to my Sea Moss.

The human body has five categories of taste receptors (taste buds). All are utilized to send signals to the brain and to stimulate chemical reactions in the body. Taste receptors are located throughout the body; not just on the tongue. They taste receptors categories are sweet salty sour better and uMami (savory). They are located on the tongue, the heart, the digestive tract, and in men on the testes (umami; to assist with fertility. Another conversation for another day).

Sea moss has 92 of 102 mineral content and the dominant taste of sea moss is salty. One of the prime medicinal functions of sea moss is dissolving mucus (catarrh) from the body. The potassium chloride content is able to systemically dissolve mucus. This mechanism takes place by stimulating the salty taste receptors throughout the body. The locations of the salty receptors in particular are the kidneys (high blood pressure), the bladder (water retention), the lungs (shallow breathing/asthmatic symptoms), the colon (old feces stuck to the walls of the...

  • Calendula thoroughly cleanses inguinal lymph nodes (the lymph nodes in your pelvic area). If those lymph nodes are congested, it can lead to the lymph nodes under your arm pit to clog up ( which is why it’s used in a lot of NATURAL DEODORANTS), hence the beginning stages of Breast C🤮nc🤢r. It has strong anti-tumor properties🧐.

DIVERTICULITIS? Hemorrhoids? Or Colitis?

In my experience the most common denominators for these conditions are #foodallergies (👈🏽 a more in-depth topic) #MUCUS and #inflammation.

Diverticula are small pouches that bulge outward through the colon, or large intestine. If you have these pouches, you have a condition called diverticulosis. Hemorrhoids are swollen and inflamed veins in the rectum and anus that cause discomfort and bleeding. Colitis is a chronic, ulcerative bowel disease that causes inflammation in the digestive tract.

Yarrow and Aloe Vera are effective digestive tonics. They tone the mucosa of the digestive tract, loosens mucoid plaque and thus helps with absorption. They also helps with bleeding hemorrhoids, and diverticulitis. Ginger provides enzyme activity and reduces inflammation. I would even suggest drinking some Slippery Elm for an internal occlusive covering and eating at least 2 servings of sauerkraut (natural source of glutamine) 3 days per week to repair the gut lining, and to restore probiotic ( healthy bacteria),...

Meadowsweet is an astringent (toning and tightening of tissues) herb that is commonly used for excessive diarrhea, ulcers, pain, stomach aches, fevers, INDIGESTION, heart burn, GERD, and gout. It’s considered one of nature’s antacids. It came used as an alternative to TUMS or Nexium. It has an affinity to the small intestines assisting in healthy production of the digestive hormone #secretin to release bicarbonates to balance hyperacidity (#heartburn).

St.John’s Wort brings attention to many issues of the nervous and digestive systems via the Solar Plexus (nerve bundle behind the stomach) and is used by herbalists to help ease anxiety, tension, neuralgias, seasonal affective disorder, and indeed, mild to moderate depression.

It’s primary function is bringing balance between hyper and hypo acidity in the stomach. It’s has an influence on the parietal cells (controls the production of stomach acid HCL). St. John’ Wort is held as an excellent treatment for ulcerative colitis. #guthealth #guthealing #heartburn #GERD

#HISTORYOFCOLONICS It is difficult to identify the exact time in history that colon hydrotherapy emerged, but many historians trace it back to the ancient Egyptians. The historians tell us that the practice colon hydrotherapy, or in its more basic form, the enema, was passed down from the Gods to the Egyptians. There are numerous reports of the frequent use of the enema by the Egyptians, with all of them referencing a papyrus of the 14th century B.C., which is stored in the Royal Museum of Berlin. Descriptions of various methods of preparing enemas are found in the Ebers Papyrus, of the 14th century B.C. This document was obtained in 1873 by Georg Ebers, and dates from the XVIIIth Dynasty. Directions for the use of the enema (or clyster), and remedies for over 20 stomach and intestinal complaints "to drive out excrements" are mentioned. According to William Lieberman, M.D., verification of the frequent use of the enema by the Egyptians came from Herodotus (484-425 B.C.). In the 5th century B.C., Herodotus wrote: "The Egyptians clear themselves on three consecutive days, every...
