HERBS

Herbs For Diarrhea

Any of the following can be taken as a capsule or in a tea... in tea, the rule of thumb is a teaspoon of herb per cup of boiling water, steeped in a covered cup for 5 to 15 minutes.

The more scent to the herb, the shorter the steeping time need be. (Think of it that the stronger scented herbs have more volatile essential oil).





Bilberry - tea- 1 pint of water over 3 tablespoons of dried berries, let stand 5 to 10 minutes, bring to boil (boil 5 minutes) take one cup, 3 to 4 times a day. Can also be taken as fresh bilberry juice, 1 cup 3 to 4 times a day.

Black Currant - juice from fresh berries, 1 cup 3 to 4 times a day

Carob - make a cup of carob cocoa, with hot milk(!)

Cloves - half teaspoon per quart of water, steeped, used to relieve cramping.

Lady's Mantle - tea 1 to 2 tsp mixed leaves and twigs in a cup of water, boil 2 minutes, let stand 5 to 10 minutes, take one cup up to 3 times a day.

Nutmeg - half teaspoon of nutmeg several times a day.

Plantain - infusion - one ounce dried plantain leaves in a quart of boiling water. Cover and let stand in a warm place for 20 minutes, strain and cool. T! ake a half cup 3 or 4 times daily.
