Hibiscus

Hibiscus infusions are made from deep red calyxes of the hibiscus flower that is rich in anthocyanins, fruit acids, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and bioflavonoids. Hibiscus infusions are excellent for boosting the immune system and fighting off infections. I really like the fact that hibiscus is also known as an anti-aging medicinal flower… it contains all the essential antioxidants to fight against the signs of aging.  I like to blend my hibiscus with other medicinal herbs such as oatstraw, rosehips and horsetail for their silica content—this silica found in these herbs help the body with the generation of collagen. Medical Medium says that horsetail in particular is well known for its anti-aging, and anti-wrinkle properties due to its ability to help form collagen and repair damaged skin to produce a more youthful glow. 

Rosehips

The vitamin C in rosehips is the most bio identical and bio available form of vitamin C in existence, which means it’s the most usable form for our bodies. Not only that, but the vitamin C in rosehips has the power to transform other vitamin C found in the system from other foods you eat, into something bigger and better!

Medical Medium says that the vitamin C in rosehips is more anti-inflammatory than from any other source. This helps increase our blood’s white count by strengthening our neutrophils, eosinophils, basophils and macrophages and boosts the immune system against viruses, bacteria, yeast, mold, and other unwanted fungus. Rosehips also support the thymus gland which is a specialized organ which helps your immune system to function optimally. Rosehips have a higher ratio of antioxidants than most healing foods, and contain a wide variety of antioxidants in addition to their high levels of vitamin C. Medical Medium says that rosehips have an affinity for women’s reproductive health aiding in regulating menstrual flow, easing uterine cramps, and preventing breast disorders. They help to purify and nourish the blood and lymphatic system which aids in preventing stress related illnesses. They are wonderful for strengthening the circulatory, respiratory, and digestive system.  He also notes they are amazing for alleviating urinary tract infections, much more powerful at this job than cranberries

Oatstraw

Oat straw is an incredible healing herb which is full of vitamins and minerals. It’s rich in vitamins A, C, E, K, & B-complex, and minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium, silica, and zinc. I use this herb because its highly beneficial for strengthening my teeth and bones, and is a great preventative intervention for osteoporosis—something I’m not interested in developing as my journey progresses here on planet earth. I also utilize this medicinal herb because it’s known to be particularly beneficial for the endocrine system and for supporting and balancing the adrenal glands… 2 parts of my body that I care for, and am very mindful of now--especially since I was an adrenaline junkie from a very early age--hence why I’ve always had fine, thin hair since my early 20’s. I’m also a super-fan of this medicinal herb because It helps me out in the “cognitive department” …It helps to sharpen my memory, focus, and concentration skills.

So, what other sort of symptoms or conditions would I use oatstraw for? If I battled with brain fog, anxiety, depression, stress, nervous tension, and insomnia, oatstraw would be in my life—I would use it regularly in my herbal infusions, as it benefits the nervous system tremendously. If I broke anything on my body, oatstraw would be in every single herbal infusion that I consumed. Medical Medium says that oatstraw helps to strengthen teeth, blood vessels, and nerve sheaths making it an important herb for the skeletal, circulatory, and neurological systems. Since oatstraw has some powerful diuretic properties, it can help to reduce cramping, bloating, inflammation, kidney stones, urinary tract infections, water retention, edema, and lymphatic swelling.

Horsetail

Horsetail, aka shavegrass, is packed with vitamin C & B-complex as well as minerals such as silica, calcium, magnesium, iron, and manganese. I take this medicinal herb to help me reverse aging ;) Horsetail is well known for its anti-aging, anti-wrinkle properties due to its ability to help form collagen and repair damaged skin to produce a more youthful glow. I also like to get this medicinal herb in me regularly because it’s excellent for strengthening bones, teeth, hair, and nails-- and it can improve bone density, and enhance bone flexibility. Once again, I’m taking the pro-active approach here in regards to bone density Not looking to suffer with osteoporosis at any point in my journey. 

Horsetail is one of the best sources of silica (which is what the body ACTUALLY needs in order to create collagen)…Silica also strengthens the connective tissues of my brain, nerve cells, and spinal cord thereby improving my memory and helping to prevent memory loss…and as you all know by now, I’m always looking for ways which will help me nurture my noodle ;)

So, what other sort of symptoms or conditions would I use horsetail for? If I suffered with incontinence, bladder weakness, edema, bloating, swelling, water retention kidney stones and urinary tract infections, I would bring in the horsetail--it contains natural diuretic properties which can come to the aid of these conditions. If I broke any bones, pulled a hamstring, or dislocated any joints—horsetail would be a part of my healing protocol. If I was dealing with type 2 diabetes, I would include herbal infusions with horsetail into my daily routine—Medical Medium says that its been shown to help those with type 2 diabetes by significantly lowering blood glucose levels within 1.5-2 hours.
