6 ounces of distilled water (must be distilled water)
1 ounce of the slippery elm bark, (has to be the real bark only)
put in a crockpot for 4 hours on low. strain to get the bark removed, but don't use a paper strainer, you want some of the particales in the liquid.. and put into 1 cup or 2 cup containers, you can freeze it. either keep the bark in the fridge or put in freezer. Makes about three 8 ounce bottles.
My son has some acid reflux and asks for a bottle every now and then.
We used to buy it from our herb guy, it's costs $40 from him, They have been swamped with orders so he gave me two recipes for things. They are really good with their herbs, they have most all liquid, he said liquid is better, we get our hawthorne berry from him too, it has capsicum in it to work better for the heart. I also get the hawthorneberry syrup to carry with me in case I get chest pains. What do you take the hawthorne for? I also use pepperberry to rid acid, but I have been lax in that lately. The people are from Ohio, it's such a neat story about how they came about and what they do for people. They have educated me very much in what to take for things. I use echineca/golden seal now when I have to have an antibiotic. I only use it two weeks and then use the plain echinecea in between. I have to get on that now because I think I may have a esophogeal infection. Doctors don't seem to care to find out what is going on, I have been pushed from doctor to doctor this week and with no relief for anything. So I am going back to the herbs. May take some time with them.
I don't know of any Whole Foods Market in our area, we are in PA. What do you drink the tea for with all those herbs in? And what do you take the marshmallow, for? I have a booklet from my herb people I will look up burdock. My sister in law was taking that when she had cancer. They also have a cancer herb I was taking that when I had abnormal paps for years, I now do not have abnormal paps. I also was taking a tbsp. of olive oil in the morning and one in the evening for cholesterol and taking a tbsp of a mixture they gave for circulation called super tonic. that's easy to make also and it works wonders for circulation. And it's stuff you probably have in your house, it's also good for the heart. But I take it with food, it's like a hot sauce. So I don't take it right now because of my probabal problem with my esophogus. but it surely works along with the olive oil to lower cholesterol. Mine was 284 on november and by that august it went down to 208. So there are things to do for the cholesterol.
