The Herbgals Health Spring Tips

Well it's that time again! What time you say?? Time to detoxify our bodies after a long winter of squirreling! What is squirreling you ask???? Well it's being cooped up all winter with no sunshine but a lot of food!!! Just like you give your house a spring cleaning we need to be doing that to our bodies. God knew this before we did and He was kind enough to put spring tonic herbs at our fingertips.

The one that I'm going to talk about today is Stinging Nettle. Nettle leaves contain iron, silicon, calcium, sulfur, sodium, copper, manganese, chromium and zinc. They also contain Vitamin A,C,D,E,F,and P. They are also rich in Chlorophyll. Most people consider it an annoying weed. Not me, I have a special place in my garden for these beauties!!!

So you will need gloves to do your picking. Nettles have very sharp stingers that cause itching. The stinging disappears after cooking and it makes a very good potherb. It is also tasty with a little EEVO and garlic. So get a handful of pesticide free leaves and add them to your distilled boiling water, then turn off the heat and steep for 20 minutes. Strain out the leaves and you have a beautiful green tea. Add some raw honey if you like it sweet. Then put your feet up and sip it down. The extra bonus is it's absolutely free!!

Now if you don't have access to Nettles I have some great detoxification products right here and they will do a great job. It's even better to do both! You can pick them up when you get your spring tune up with Dr. Collins

The Herbgals Health Winter Tips

Now that winter is upon us we need to work on keeping our immune systems healthy. That way we are prepared and are able to ward off all those nasty viruses. Here are some Herbal tips to help you do that.

1) Try to eat a healthy diet full of fresh fruits, vegetables and proteins. Sugars and empty calories including corn syrup will lower your immune system. Stay away from processed foods!

2) Supplement your diet with Vitamin D. We get our Vitamin D from sunshine and in the winter it is pretty hard to do! Vitamin D keeps your immune system functioning and also helps with seasonal depression.

3) When symptoms of a cold start, gargle in cayenne. Take a quarter of a teaspoon of cayenne and add it to 1 cup of water. Keep it by your sink and gargle in it often.

4) Slice fresh garlic and adhere it to the bottom of your foot with a band aid. change it after 12 hours. Garlic has natural antiviral and antibiotic properties. If something stronger is required I make garlic syrup for any type of infection.
