SING FEFUR NEWSLETTER NO 22
An overview of different herbal realities focusing on the medicinal value of plants, indigenous herbs of South Africa
and aspects of the herbal industry that affect the person in the street.
• Street-wise----Medicinal herbs growing wild and recognised as weeds in the streets, garden and the wild.
Comrades, our planned strategy to ruin the economy of this country is continuing, the agricultural sector, the mining sector, the sports sector and others are already succumbing while we grow rich on the union dues paid by dupes. Helped along by our good friends in politics and especially the banking cartels we will succeed in reducing this country to an empty shell.
The gangrenous rot that pervades in society is so obvious that even the anti inflammatory and antiseptic powers of yarrow have little chance of helping. Yet a fresh leaf poultice applied to a wound helps cuts and sores. To prepare a useful skin lotion, take some olive oil and steep lots of yarrow leave in the oil for a week and use the oil for skin blemishes and psoriasis. This property is mainly due to the salicylic acid, which is the anti-inflammatory and pain-reducing ingredient.
Herbs have many ingredients that together compose a symphony of healing.
In the darkness of our time, Yarrow does have the ability to lower blood pressure and thins the blood. No side effects unlike the pills used for lowering blood pressure.Taken as a tea with 1 teaspoon to a cup of water, Yarrow does wonders to balance all cholesterol levels. Secret agent Rutin, a flavonoid, is the driving force. Tinctures and capsules are also available at good health–shops
For those with a problem with no appetite, a cup of yarrow tea may stimulate hunger cravings.
Yarrow is not an unusual plant and is found growing wild and in many gardens—in Afrikaans it is called duisendblaar because of its many segmented leaves. The white flowered variety is the medicinal one used by phytotherapists.
When dealing with a breakdown in one aspect of the body health, it may be wise to treat the whole system rather than focus on a single organ or system. In this way mixtures of herbs may work more effectively than a single herb—some helping with elimination and detoxing.Our mixtures contain herbs, which do all that and fortify the mineral and vitamin supply hence providing a more complete healing process with no side effects.
The process of cutting a herb generates heat so the finer the cut of the herb so too does the potency diminish that little bit. So I recommend the rough tea cut rather than teabags even though it appears to be a mission to make in the rush rush everyday world.
Guidance with professional health practitioners from the naturopath, sangoma, dietician, alternative healer to a MD is an responsible course of action when dealing with any substance affecting your health.
IN MOST CASES WE REFER TO DRIED HERB WHEN ADVOCATING AMOUNTS IN TEASPOON FOR TEAS .

These herb properties are directly connected to and derived from the forces of nature - if you want to call it Godhead, Greater hierarchy, Krishna, Yaveh, Allah, it does not matter—these are the forces that we can trust today. So treat the herbs with the respect due to a great natural force, never mind the ravings of a semi lunatic political, media force doing their best to undermine common sense.
In the next newsletter we will deal with GINGER in the series called Kitchen wise - talking about medicinal properties of the usual herbs found in the kitchen.
