We use herbs in liquid form because they are more easily digested and absorbed. In this way they work the way they are supposed to. Remember, the true taste of an herb is your guarantee of it being genuine. If you prefer, herbal fluid extracts can be added to juice for flavoring. With herbal extracts we totally eliminate the necessity of swallowing all those pills and capsules and wondering if the capsules you swallow will be able to get through the barrier film on the walls of your stomach and intestines and get to the area you want it to work.
Herbal extracts are not concentrates, they are dilutions. This is just like dilution you make when you put a tea bag into a cup of hot water. When you make a dilution, like a tea, you have a water extract of an herb and this is very easy to digest, much easier than eating the contents of the tea bag. The extracts described in this work are made with water and grain neutral spirits ( a natural alcohol). When the extract is kept in the liquid solution for 2 to 4 weeks, we get far more out of an herb than if a capsule of powdered herb is in the body soaking for 8 to 24 hours. Alcohol is used because it readily dissolves all of the oily, waxy, enzyme and hormonal portions of an herb. Water alone cannot do this. In this way, we get everything the herb has to offer to build better health naturally.
Herbs for you, as described here, are taken on or under the tongue, mixed with fruit juice or used externally, as indicated. When used internally, they are carried through the tongue or stomach walls almost directly into the blood stream and thus, bypass the nearly 27 feet of tortured digestive tract. When applied externally to the skin, herbal extracts are rapidly absorbed and enter the blood stream within seconds. They go where they are supposed to go and do what they are supposed to. They are absorbed especially well from the soles of the feet, the palms of the hands, the insides of the thighs, the temples of the forehead, the spine and back of the neck or any other places where you can feel the pulse beat of the heart. This gives the practitioner and the user a great deal more flexibility and is very helpful for babies and grownups, who, cannot or will not swallow anything. It should also be emphasized here that an herbal extract can be applied to the entire spine, from the tip of the coccyx ( tail bone ) upward and on to the neck, to work with great rapidity and efficiency.
This work and its applied use is given to you because someone does care about you a very great deal and does want to see you well and happy. Once you identify the herbs for your body type, they are your true herbal friends and they will not desert you in times of need. The goal of this information is so you can have a body without physical problems. Then you are free to be yourself, do things, play, work, move around, and enjoy life.
