Vigor Triggers: Spring Herbs

” target=”_blank”>Mint is perfect for an after dinner herbal tea. It:

  • aids digestion
  • is beneficial for nausea and flatulence
  • can help headaches or migraines. (Hint: take a little peppermint essential oil and rub it on your temples and scalp when you have a headache)

freshens breath.

  • has diuretic properties.
  • is high in iron.
  • helps to flush out the glandular system.
  • contains myristicin, a chemical known for preventing tumors.  (in fact, the National Cancer Institute includes parsely in a specialized group of vegetables with high anti-cancer activity.)
  • It’s unbelievable to me that fresh contains many anti-bacterial compounds, fighting “bugs” that have become immune to antibiotics.

  • just two tablespoons contain 60 percent of your daily recommended intake of Vitamin K.
  • includes anti-inflammatory properties that sooth both arthritis and intestinal conditions.
  • According to my high school bio teacher, Mr. Miller, liking or hating (as some unbelievably do) is a genetic trait. In the alternative health world cilantro is:

    • known as a chelator, which helps remove metals, such as mercury or aluminum, as well as other toxins from our bloodstream, and hence is important for any of us living and eating and breathing in this modern world.
    • is rich in chlorophyll, the molecular structure of which is nearly identical to that of our blood. Chlorophyll builds blood  and hence it is no surprise that in Asian traditions cilantro is used to cure anemia
