1 part Marshmallow root (ground)
1 part Licorice root (ground)
1 part Slippery Elm
1/2 part Echinacea angustafolia
1/2 part Geranium
Sage Honey to taste

Mix the above tea in a bowl. Pour 1 cup boiling water to 1 tsp. of
herb.
Let steep for 15 minutes. Drink on an empty stomach, 2 or 3 cups
daily.

These herbs have been traditionally used for healing stomach ulcers and
decreasing stomach acids, as well as for binding proteins. The sage
honey
& geranium are recommended for their astringent properties in preventing
bleeding.

Other herbs known to be effective in healing ulcers are goldenseal,
catnip, meadowsweet, ginger root and peppermint.

SAGE HONEY
1 1/2 cups raw honey
1/4 cup fresh sage leaves (salvia officinalis)
Heat honey over low heat. Add sage leaves and heat gently, taking
care
not to boil (excessive heat destroys the beneficial qualities of the
honey). Heat until the sage leaves become dry. Now the herbal
qualities
and essential oils have been extracted from the sage herb and are
contained in the honey. Strain with a slotted spoon or sieve. Pour
aromatic honey into a clear glass jar and label.
