Greetings All in the name of the most I Haile Selassie I
Here are a few herb suppliers that will have most Iverything that InI list in the reasoning thread.
@JAH Child, InI am still looking up the comparison between Sweet Potato and Yams. InI am not having much luck as of yet, but as always the search will Itinue, Intil I find something of use.
As for the difference between toasting bread and just regular bread, the books say this:
When bread is toasted it lowers some of the nutritional value but when used for treating certain illnesses, it dries the bread. When the bread has been dried a little, this will help to remove mucus, stomach acid, excess salivation, excess moisture in the digestive system, and helps to soak up nutrients which aids in delivery into the system. The bread should be slightly toasted (not brown or black) as this will help retain the utmost nutritional value. Non-Toasted bread can, in certain circumstances, cause acid reflux (indigestion).
Here are some Teas that may be beneficial in the Post Nasal Drip condition.
Cardamom seed Tea
Enchinacea Root Tea
Flax Seed Tea
Earl Grey Black Tea (Use in moderation as too much Bergamot can be bad, Also has High Caffeine so best used in the morning)
Goldenseal Root Tea
Green Tea (I personally use this all day)
Horehound Leaf and Flower tea (Have NO MORE than 1-2 cups per day for 4-6 weeks)
Oregon Grape Root Tea
Nasal Wash is a procedure of rinsing the entire nasal tract with a salt water solution. Doing this clears sinus congestion and infections, allergies, stuffy nose, difficulty breathing through nose, sore throat, and sinus/throat infections. Best if done preventatively in the morning, or in case of infection several times a day depending on the severity of infection.
To do a nasal wash, you will need a water container with a small spout(neti-pot, small watering can, bulb syringe, squeeze bottle, or turkey baster). Fill with saltwater, ½ t-spoon salt to every 2 cups of water. Place spout into nostril while tilting head to the opposite side. Slowly pour into nostril while ensuring that the water runs out the opposite side (adjust as needed). Repeat on other side when clear. One may need to alternate sides until the nose and sinuses are completely clear. May also need to blow nose during this procedure to ensure all the mucus that is loosened is expelled. This may take multiple sessions in order to fix the nasal drip. Best if used in conjunction with herbal teas. Make sure to mix the salt in the water when the water is hot. Allow water to cool, but not to be cold. The water should still be warm, but not hot. If the solution needs to be stronger an herbal tea may be added to the saltwater solution.
