Ever since sin entered the world...
people have dealt with stress of all kinds
one of our modern day stresses is the politics of food...
how it is grown, processed and fed to people
it is a huge business and profit driven...
and we are suffering the consequences of food perversion from the natural
what ever happened to the backyard garden?
bad food and stress can cause high blood pressure
if your blood pressure is at urgent high...
you may need meds until it comes under control
however, it is is over the normal range but not high enough to run for conventional drugs...
using natural herbs is a good way to bring it back to normal along with eating good food...
and keeping stress down
keeping white sugar, white flour and other highly processed foods will help
HBP is often a result of gluten intolerance or celiac disease...
which you can find out more about at:
this disease causes a great deal of inflammation in the body...
causing it undue strain and stress
if you have the will power to change your diet...
then, it makes sense to use foods to bring down high blood pressure
ginger properties are:
reduces pain/inflammation, anti-coagulant, digestive help, anti-nausea
as a warming herb, it knocks out fevers
lemongrass properties are:
anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, detoxifies, pain killer, digestive help
the combination of ginger and lemongrass makes a powerful medicine
if you are on pharmaceutical drugs...
always check with your doctor to make sure the herbal foods don't interact with the drugs
the recipe below is for fresh ginger root and lemongrass
chunk of ginger about fist size
10 - 15 leaves of lemongrass
crush and twist the lemongrass well to get the medicinal juices flowing
fine grate the ginger
bring water to very hot but, but not boiling
pour the water over the herbs in a heat-proof glass container
don't use metal as it gives herbal teas an off taste
cover and let the tea steep for a few hours
strain and refrigerate or use right away
I drink about 3 cups of herb tea a day and it keeps colds, flues, and such away
you can drink it heated or iced
if you like tea sweetened as I do...
I use raw honey for it's medicinal properties as well
as a tea lover...
on very warm days, I put 6 teaspoons of black, green or white tea in the pitcher...
to steep along with the herbs
and for an extra boost in taste, use stevia leaves from my garden to sweeten
please do, have a glass, or cup of ginger/lemongrass with me
May your day or night find healing in the herb of God's wonderful grace.
