Wow Christena! What a story and way to go! Do you mind sharing this with “All panelists and attendees” (select in blue bar above chat box)
I like to add astragalus dried root to my rice, soup -ant dish with water
My daughter and I were infected with Covid 19. We have both been taking quarts of infusions for at least a year preceding getting Covid 19 (Linden, Stinging Nettle, Comfrey, Red Clover and Oatstraw). When it hit my daughter, I gave her echinacea, yarrow and elecampane. She kept getting worse and was going to have to go to the hospital the next morning, if not at some point during the night. I did some research on Susun Weed's site and Red Moon Herbs. Gave her 2 drops of Pokeweed, along with Goldenrod, Cleavers, Chickweed, Osha Root. The next morning, my daughter went from completely pale to having red in her cheeks. She has continued to recover. I am deeply grateful to the plants and the healers who work so hard to get the message out and to grow!
was that 2 drops of each of goldenrod, cleavers, chickweed and osha root? the more details on your protocol the better!
Ephedra is banned by the FDA, so herbalist can legally use but it cannot cross state lines, so pretty much no one has it.
You mention selling turkey rhubarb plants, where will you have them for sale?
I’ve grown boneset for years - it spreads quite readily. I will have lots of plants to share for anyone that wants to come to Northfield…
Will also have boneset available to gather in the You Pick Medicinal Herb garden just north of Northfield. And from my yard.
you said boneset for photo but looks like cohosh
yup there it is
full sun works if you keep it moist enough
especially in your good soils
Baikal skullcap grows nicely here, too, and is also a lovely landscaping plant. The root is used with baikal, so it can be a 2-3 year wait for that.
LuAnn and I are in zone 4b
Zone 4, sometimes 5. I’ve had it overwinter in my yard very nicely. Waiting to see if it comes back in the you pick garden which is more open. Hoping it comes back - have about a dozen plants there.
mine didn't come back in zone 4
Maybe the Baikal will overwinter in pots in a greenhouse in Zone 4
The Evolution Revolution is on !Its litterally written in the stars
These will be helpful with the loss of the Friends Plant sale during Mother's day weekend
The doses for my daughter may have been more than necessary. She was in a crisis situation and I did not want to underwhelm the virus. If it wasn't so critical, I could have experimented with lower doses. This is what I did for the first 3-4 days: Every hour, 1 1/2 dropperful of Echinacea (120 lbs body weight); 1 dropperful each of: yarrow, goldenrod, chickweed, cleavers, osha root. Also up to 2 drops of Pokeweed for 2-3 days - per day (not per hour!). I dropped the Pokeweed after the 2-3 days and added Lobelia (I had to order it). At first, I gave her dropperfuls of Lobelia for a day or 2 and then backed off to 15 drops during the day and 15 drops during the night. Also added Mullein (I had to order it). I gave her 3 dropperfuls of Yellow Dock during the day as she was bed-bound and needed to move her bowels. I gave her Motherwort - 3 dropperfuls during the day, 3 dropperfuls during the night to soothe her and to encourage heart health as Covid 19 can affect the heart.
We'll post Jane's plant resource on the links portion of the Guild website and link to it in our newsletter
Nope me, Betsy Nelson, and I have a lot of plants if anyone needs one
I may have missed this - Which “phase” is Red Sage recommended for?
This was Great! I missed part of this talk. I was out dividing & replanting Yerba mansa :)
Thank you for sharing your deep knowledge and green giving heart - & as always thank you Tara
Honeysuckle flowers are primary in Chinese Medicine, but the new green twig growth can also be used.
Sorry, also added Elecampane to my 1 dropperful per hour for the first 5 days (I ran out or would have continued with this).
