How you prepare your Echinacea medicine, and which varities you use, is of vital importance. It depends on which phytochemical compounds you want to be at the fore front of your remedy's action. ~Echinacea angustifolia ROOTS are the most effective part of this variety. They are particularly high in alkylamides....you can tell the levels of these phytochemicals by the way they way tingle your tongue. Alkylamides boost immune function and the lymph system...so E. angustifola roots for immune support. The best way to process the roots is as a lipophylic/alcohol based extract. ~Echinacea purpurea leaves, mature flowers and stems are highest in the phytochemicals that reduce inflammation of the mucosal lining. This variety is used for upper respiratory tract support. In Germany, a water-based stabilized juice of the aerial parts of E. purpurea is a common remedy. Dried herbal tea of this variety is the second most effective way to consume it for antinflammatory action. ~According to recent research that combined then tested the roots of E. angustifolia and the aerial parts of E. purpea together (in both water and alcohol based extracts), the antiflammatory and the immuno-enhancing effects of these combos decreased significantly. ~So, this means that the old "throw them all in the pot" approach to working with Echinacea medicine isn't the best method. ~Which means that many of the commercially made Echinacea extracts and tinctures available at your local health food store are far less than optimal medicine. ~Support your local Traditional Herbalists❤ . . . #graciasporlamedicinamama #eldersisterorganics #echinacea #researchbased #herbalremedies #wellness #knowthyyarden #organichealing #wellnesssupport #herbalism #holistichealth #medicinemaking #naturesmedicine #naturalremedies #naturopathicmedicine #herballove #plantmedicine #plantscience #botanicals #remedies #coldandflu
Oh no! Kwame has a cold! 😲😷😩 We combat all ailments over here with essential oils, herbs, and whole foods (food that has been processed or refined as little as possible, free from additives or other artificial substances) of course! You can use herbs as tea, elixers, and for other medicinal purposes. Same with essential oils. EOs are my go to for everything! Skin, hair, hygiene, etc. All health and wellness needs and concerns. There's an essential oil or herb for anything you can think of. The ultimate cures! The natural way... I like to give Kwame baths, he enjoys the water and they really soothe him. Here's my favorite recipe to detox and draw out mucus, along with a homemade vapor rub and fever reducer. Works like a charm. ✨ Bath ingredients: 1 tbsp Mullien Flowers 1 tbsp Elder Flowers 1 tbsp Peppermint Leaves 1 tbsp Chamomile Flowers 2-4 drops Peppermint Oil 2-4 drops Eucalyptus Oil Natural Vapor Rub ingredients: 3 drops Tea Tree Oil 2 drops Peppermint Oil 1 1/2 tbsp Natural Shea Butter Rub on baby's back and chest. Lavendar Oil is perfect to reduce fever. Although Kwame didn't get a fever this time, he has in the past and the lavendar brought his temperature down significantly. Fever Reducer: 2-4 drops Lavendar Oil 1 tbsp Raw Unrefined Coconut Oil Rub oils on the back of baby's neck, behind ears, under arms, and on the bottom of feet. What I can do as a breastfeeding mama to help is double my garlic intake, vitamin C, juice/ eat some leafy greens, and take away any mucus causing foods... Though we're primarily vegan, to be honest I really have a thing for cheese. But, dairy is definitely a huge NO! Working on it.

Here’s the ugly truth of essential oils. And why it’s so important to dilute, dilute, dilute!!

My little chickenpox-ees enjoying some gentle time in...
I spent so much time on the 5 elements Because it's essential to understanding what these 3 dosha's are. .these 5 elements when forming organic bodies combine into 3 groupings.. those 3 groupings are called dosha. Dosha is a Sanskrit word meaning "an imperfect thing" or "an unseasy alliance between 2 things that aren't the same" A dosha then is a combination of 2 of those 5 elements into a substance that is only temporarily connected so they are unstable. those 3 substances are Air and space which have a kinship to one another due to their subtle nature into something called Vata. Fire and water which form an unstable alliance which is very hot and intense called Pitta. water and earth combine into a gooey sticky alliance or clay of which our bodies are made called Kapha. Vata comes from the Sanskrit word where our word vehicle comes from and it means to move. Pitta comes from the Sanskrit word meaning austerity. if you work hard at something you'll generate heatand that heat is called Pitta. Kapha has the root word meaning water. So I want you to think that in nature there are 3 departments, the moving/comunicating dept. the cooking or transforming dept and physical/sticky dept. those 3 departments are the 3 dosha's. In our body's then we have a nervous system and all that movement is done by vata. We have a fire burning inside of us and that fire is transforming everything we put in..from the food in our body's to the ideas we digest in our mind. it separates things that are useful and not useful. and Kapha is the solid and liquid substance itself, the actual tangible body.. does anyone see where I'm going with this yet? Do you remember discussing the energetics of plants..how they fall into 3 catagories..one of moisture moistening or drying or Kapha... One of temperature heating or cooling or Pitta and one of movement relaxing or stimulating or Vata. See the connection? we'll talk more about them tomorrow.. #apothecary #herbalist #herbalism #wildcrafting #plantmedecine #plantallies #naturesmedicine #naturalalternatives #naturalremedies

El elderberry (sambuccus) y el astragalus forman parte de nuestras fórmulas favoritas de prevención de gripe aquí en el Centro. En adición, Vitamina D, Zinc, y vitamina C pueden ser de asistencia 🤧 #Repost @herbalacademy ・・・ Herbs work with us, not against us. They can be subtle as they build us up over time, but they stand with us as we move forward. They support our health rather than mask our symptoms, and require that we are honest with ourselves as they give us the support we need. . . We see herbs working with us in many ways – like elderberry and astragalus work with us by supporting our immune system. 🔸Elderberry is a well-loved cold and flu season herb, and appears to work mainly as an immune stimulant. Other herbs appear to have a balancing effect on the immune system. 🔸Astragalus is one of the 50 fundamental herbs in traditional Chinese medicine, and studies show that it may help us stay well by decreasing abnormally high levels of some aspects of the immune system while boosting others that are low. What herbs are working with you this season? . . #elderberry #elderberries #astragalus #coldandflu #coldandfluseason #herbalallies #herbsupport #herbswork #herbalism #herballifestyle #herbalist #immuneboost #seasonalremedies

Flowering Loquat Tree ~*~ Walking down the street, a sweet floral aroma caught my attention. I looked around for a Plumeria tree, or some other plant that I commonly associate with a scent so lovely. After some time I figured out it was the Loquat! The bees were going to town on these gorgeous blossoms.
Although not used traditionally in western #herbal medicine . This lion ear makes me #happy with its bright orange flowers. It was used traditionally in African #herbalism to treat snake bite amongst other things. #plantsmakemehappy #naturopath #herbalist #fertilehealth
Ceremonies and Rituals are critically important as they are daily enactments of maintaining balance- -
Here’s today’s batch. This one was inspired by my salt scrub Purification and is scented with palo santo, cedar, juniper, rosemary and a hint of peppermint. Can’t wait to see how it smells while burning. Definitely think I’ve uncovered a new addiction. I’ll be making a LOT more candles in the near future. Will put them up on my website and Etsy shop soon. Stay tuned. #wildgroveapothecary #plantmedicine #herbalism #aromatherapy #soycandles #soywaxcandles #essential oils #etsyshop #etsyseller

Excuse me if this comes up twice on the feed. It was either my impatience or instagram gobbled up my last post. .... . . I’m a little too excited to use this tonight. I’ve always loved Annie’s scent profiles in all her products - it’s what brings them over the top. After meeting her last year and chatting with her, she is truly so knowledgeable about essential oils. Their qualities start from the plant - where it was grown, the altitude, the soil etc. I didn’t even think about these things! . . . . #beauty #greenbeauty #plantmedicine #naturalbeauty #greenbloggers #herbalalchemy #holisticliving #cleanbeauty #healthylifestyle #naturalskincare #cleanlivingblog #chineseherbs #herbalism #mindbody #positiveenergy #motivationdaily #naturalmedicine #organicbeauty #holisticlifestyle #alternativehealth #mindbodygram #wellness #holisticwellness #greenbeautyblogger #inspirationoftheday #organicliving #cleanbeautyblogger #acupuncture #Chinesemedicine #foodismedicine
Taking a plant internally or externally - whether in medicinal strength for acute healing, or as food or drink: it’s very much like you’re trying on that plant, wearing it for size. Each plant fits each unique human body a bit differently. In various ways we experience the synergy that the plant itself embodies. Differently-but-similarly each human body processes the cellular messages of the plant’s molecules, and that’s why it’s such a different healing experience (using plants) than isolates and synthetics in pharmaceutical drugs. We are not so dissimilar to our green friends, we are all just made up of different combinations of the same sunshine, moonbeams, and stardust, and they light up those ancient memories in our cells. Makes sense to me to crave a deeper and clearer understanding of that. And if you haven’t read Braiding Sweetgrass by #robinwallkimmerer DO IT, one of the best books ever.

My first ever linocut inspired by all the spider webs on the sumac earlier this month - just in time for Halloween. Really felt amazing carving this to medieval folk music, thinking about printing hundreds of years ago. Through the invention of woodcuts Albrecht Dürer was the first artist to gain major rockstar fame because his work could be distributed in print across Europe. Anyways if you’re interested in a print let me know either in the comments or DM. I’ll be making them tomorrow. They’ll be priced reasonably. Thank you! ~Philippe --------------------------------------------------- #herbalism #herbalist #alternativemedicine #medicinalplant #plantmedicine #botanicalart #botanicaldrawing #botanicalillustration #plantart #linocut #woodcut #woodcutprint #floralart #sumac #blockprinting #halloweenart #spiderweb #spiderart

Making wild-crafted, invasive-species tinctures today with dad. Honeysuckle is known as the “echinacea of Chinese herbalism” and since it’s an invasive species harvested from our own land we do a little good for our native plants (dad’s garden is a designated @unitedplantsavers native sanctuary) as well. It’ll take a few weeks for our leaves to becomes tinctures and hopefully I will have kicked this cold by then but I’ll be ready for the next one. And the next. And the next. Grateful to have a family that supports me in all my crazy ideas. Inspired by a class I took from Ceara Foley of The Appalachia School of Holistic Herbalism at the @sewisewomen conference last weekend (and my sweet babe @sarajeankelley of course). #herbalism

Today's adventure in kitchen herbalism is a Winter berry tonic syrup, inspired by Gather Victoria. I used some fir needle tea from Juniper Ridge since I don't have easy access to any conifers. Also used rosehips, hibiscus roselles from my hibiscus plant, elderberries, and fresh cranberries (which I think gave the syrup a more tart/sour taste than I'd like). Also put in some Mandarin orange peel, Echinacea, Rhodiola, Ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, close, and star anise. Finished it off with some local honey and spiced rum. There are definitely changes I would make but it's not bad! Not bad at all :-) #herbalism #herbs #winter #herbalismstudent #adventuresinherbalism #spicedrum #kitchenherbalist
🌱~VITALISM ~🌱 . At its core Vitalism is the belief that the human body has an innate intelligence that governs all areas of health. Within every living being there lies a vital force or life energy that possesses this innate intelligence. The same forces that govern nature are present in all tissues of the body, the psyche, the spiritual heart, and the soul. This guiding principle has pervaded healing traditions around the world for thousands of years. It’s by no means new knowledge but in many ways we have lost this understanding. . . Healing is achieved not through suppression of this vital intelligence but through supporting the healing and restorative powers of the human body. As a herbalist and nutritionist trained in the Vitalist tradition I employ clinical strategies that support the vital force. I utilize herbs, nutrition, and lifestyle practices to promote healing in the body, mind, and spirit. Above all else I believe in empowering people with the tools needed to heal themselves. I’ll end with this quote by the father of medicine himself Hippocrates, “The greatest medicine of all is teaching people how not to need it.” You are your own healer. This is the philosophy I employ in my practice. I am merely there to help you find the healer within. . . #vitalism #holistichealth #healing #wisdom #naturecure #herbalism #clinicalherbalist #nutritionist #denver #colorado #frontrange #communityherbalism #naturalhealing #holisticnutrition #plantmedicine #hippocrates
i’m feeling inspired to share more. more of my relationship with earth medicine, my connection with the allies i work through my herbalism and stone practices. it’s a bit of a leap for me. usually these sorts of musings come up in session or classes, but rarely do i speak them in wider contexts. it seems now is the time. so, in celebration of 30 years of life on this extraordinary planet, i’m sharing 30 days of intuitive earth medicine in my stories. check em out daily to find what’s coming up… • • notes from plants, stones, fungi, and other collaborative healers in this cocreation conversation • • tidbits about my practice (it looks different often. sometimes every day.) • • ways of connecting with earth medicine • • ways of cultivating intuition • • glimpses into the layers of holistic medicine, navigating the seemingly superficial to the soulful • • • this picture jasper was a gift from my sister. something i’ve been intending to seek out. she had no idea about that or the fact that i’d brought literally every other kind of jasper i had with me on our trip. brilliant intuitive being. thanks, mary elizabeth.
This past Sunday I had the upmost honor to be surrounded by light workers of our time. The very souls who’s mission reflects what I’ve awakened and have been steadfast on nurturing these past few years. I attended the 1st annual Scared Vibes Apothecary Herbal conference in Brooklyn curated by faces that resembled mine. The words of @empresskarenmrose of @sacredvibesapothecary spilled into the fire of my soul. For that, I am forever grateful. The birth of Well Fed Apothecary manifested within a space that on the surface I felt had lost the sacredness of plant medicine within the faces of the marginalized and oppressed. The doors that were made by the indigineous are seemingly now washed and shut. This herbal conference replaced my daunting perspective with hope and reverence. My goal is to realigned the knowledge and use of herbal medicine to what is profound and natural to what many classify as other; and bridge wellness to an all encompassing inclusive world of love; no matter class or race. Making it accessible and affordable. To have been surround by energy that spoke to mine was nothing more then inspiring. Awaking to the call of ancestral dreams of our mothers mothers is an righteous act of love and I receive that. Healing at any stage and at any rate is a sole act of commitment and love of self. “A radical act” in many communities where the very act of healing has been shuned in the modernized world of wellness. As our elder @malidoma_patrice_some spoke so eloquently our medicine sings a song ... that precedes the body. A melody we are all attuned to. Well Fed Apothecary is that symphony for me. #svconference18

Honeysuckle is known as the “echinacea of Chinese herbalism” and since it’s an invasive species harvested from our own land we do a little good for our native plants (dad’s garden is a designated @unitedplantsavers native sanctuary) as well. It’ll take a few weeks for our leaves to becomes tinctures and hopefully I will have kicked this cold by then but I’ll be ready for the next one. And the next. And the next. Grateful to have a family that supports me in all my crazy ideas. Inspired by a class I took from Ceara Foley of The Appalachia School of Holistic Herbalism at the @sewisewomen conference last weekend (and my sweet babe @sarajeankelley of course). #herbalism
Big shout out to our Spirit Sis @earth_and_spirit for doing incredible research with our cordyceps we grew! She was testing cordycepin content of different extraction methods! We have 1,000,000 more questions and research topics we are going to explore in the future! Stay tuned, stay shroomed! . . Some of the exciting take aways are: 🍄 fresh Cordyceps are best extracted with room temp/cold water for 3 hours. 🍄 Dried Cordyceps are best extracted using 14 hour cold temp/10 day alcohol extraction. Hot infusions for 1 hour are also a great method for getting high levels of cordycepin! 🍄 100% fruit-bodies had a MUCH higher content of cordycepin than mycelium grown on grain. We even tested @mushroomrevival ‘s cordyceps vs the best selling and most well known medicinal mushroom company in the US who uses mycelium on grain and the results blew them out of the water... by A LOT! By about 10x. . . We strive to be at the cutting edge always! We test everything, we change, we adapt, and are always striving to make the best products on the market while also being affordable because we want to heal the people and heal the planet with mushrooms! . . Go grab some of our cordyceps and try out some of these methods listed above! Www.mushroom-revival.com/shop
DXN Superfood Enzymdrinks😊🍍🍍🍍 Wir benötigen Enzyme, um große Nahrungsmoleküle in kleine Einheiten aufzuspalten, die dann von den Zellen aufgenommen werden können. Enzyme helfen dir, Nahrung zu verdauen und Nährstoffe aus Proteinen, Kohlenhydraten, Fetten und Pflanzenfasern aufzunehmen. Enzyme sind an allen chemischen Reaktionen im Körpers beteiligt. Zum Beispiel bei der #Regeneration von Zellen und der Beseitigung von Giftenstoffen, sowie bei der Unterstützung unseres Immunsystems. Ohne Enzyme können wir überhaupt nicht leben! Weder Vitamine, Minerale noch Hormone können ohne Enzyme irgendeine Arbeit tun. Enzyme sind die treibende Kraft im Körper, um uns am Leben zu erhalten. Produziert unser Körper einen unbegrenzten Vorrat an Enzymen selber? Nein, das tut er nicht. Lange Zeit dachte man, dass die Verdauungsenzyme unserem Körper dauerhaft zur Verfügung stehen würden und für das ganze Leben ausreichen würden. Inzwischen wurde erforscht, dass wir Verdauungsenzyme auch über Schweiss, körperliche Schlacken und durch den natürlichen Alterungsprozess unserer Verdauungsenzyme produzierenden Organe verlieren. Daher ist es sehr wichtig die Enzym Speicher immer wieder aufzufüllen! Wie? Z.B. mit den leckeren DXN Superfood Enzymdrinks Cordypine und Roselle! ————————————————————- #dxn #dxnsuperfoods #enzymes #dxngermany #health #eatclean #holistic #cordypine #dxnproducts #nutrition #macronutritionist #vitalpilze #medicinalmushrooms #cordyceps #holistichealth #roselle #enzymes #endurance #endurancetraining #athletes #marathon #marathontraining #alkalinefood #functionalfood #lassnahrungdeinemedizinsein #letfoodbethymedicine #herbalism #dxneurope #nutritious #healthyfoodsharing
