Les pieds dans l’eau utre plante qui vit les pieds dans l’eau, mais plus discrète : l’ache-faux-cresson (apium nodiflorum). Elle doit son nom à deux points communs qu’elle a avec le cresson (nasturtium officinale). Le premier, c’est la forme de ses feuilles. Sans être 100% identiques, il y a tout de même une forte similitude. Le second, c’est le milieu dans lequel elle pousse : les eaux peu profondes. Pourtant, cette proche cousine du céleri (apium graveolens) n’a rien à voir avec le cresson. Ache faux cresson (apium nodiflorum) avec une ombelle très caractéristique.Photo prise en juin dernier Car l’ache-faux-cresson est une ombellifère (apiacée). Comme avec le cresson, il vaut mieux éviter de la consommer crue afin d’éviter une contamination à la douve du foie, pouvant provoquer des troubles très graves.

How To Heal Cavities Naturally by DEREK HENRY The world is slowly waking up to the fact that, when you give the body what it needs, it can heal things we previously thought were impossible. A fine example of what is often deemed as an incurable health problem is dental cavities, but extensive research is now becoming more public about the true nature of tooth decay and the fact that there are proven remedies that can remedy it. According to the American Dental Association, the reason we have tooth decay is as follows: “[Tooth decay] occurs when foods containing carbohydrates (sugars and starches) such as milk, pop, raisins, cakes or candy are frequently left on the teeth. Bacteria that live in the mouth thrive on these foods, producing acids as a result. There are a few problems with this theory, including: So if the modern explanation of tooth decay is not accurate, what is actually the cause of tooth decay? Tooth decay, as researched by Dr. Foods to focus on are: Supplements to consider are: Source: Natural News Share:

Edible Flowers, How to choose Edible Flowers, Eatable Flowers, Edible Flower Chart, List of Edible Flowers, Incredible Edible Flowers Edible flowers are the new rage in haute cuisine Photo of edible flowers picked in Linda's garden in July (lavender, thyme, dill, cilantro, day lily, squash blossom, Nasturtiums, chives, and basil). After falling out of favor for many years, cooking and garnishing with flowers is back in vogue once again. Flower cookery has been traced back to Roman times, and to the Chinese, Middle Eastern, and Indian cultures. Today, many restaurant chefs and innovative home cooks garnish their entrees with flower blossoms for a touch of elegance. One very important thing that you need to remember is that not every flower is edible. In fact, sampling some flowers can make you very, very sick. You also should NEVER use pesticides or other chemicals on any part of any plant that produces blossoms you plan to eat. Never harvest flowers growing by the roadside. Identify the flower exactly and eat only edible flowers and edible parts of those flowers. How To Choose Edible Flowers - Edible Flower Chart:

Phenol-Explorer: Database on Polyphenol Content in Foods Harvesting and Drying Calendula Mrs. Homegrown here: Okay, so in a previous post I talked about growing Calendula. This post I’m going to talk about harvesting and drying it. When to harvest: Start harvesting your Calendula as soon as the first flush of flowers is in full bloom. The ideal time to harvest is in the morning, before it gets warm, but after the dew dries. A side note regarding seeds: If you don’t harvest the heads, they die back on their own, and then they’ll go to seed fast. What parts to harvest: I harvest the flower heads only, though I understand that the foliage has much the same properties as the flowers. To harvest, I either pinch off the heads or cut off the heads with scissors. How to dry: Bring the flower heads indoors, into an area out of direct sunlight. Spread the heads out face down on a dishtowel or a sheet or newspaper or for fancy, an old window screen stretched between two chairs. Of course, if you have a dehydrator you could use one of those. When are they dry enough? Yes. Storage:

Run From The Cure: Cannabis Cures Cancer My name is Rick Simpson. I have been providing people with Hemp Oil medicines, at no cost, for about three years. The results have been nothing short of amazing. Throughout man’s history hemp has always been known as the most medicinal plant in the world. Even with this knowledge, hemp has always been used as a political and religious football. The current restrictions against hemp were put in place and maintained, not because hemp is evil or harmful, but for big money to make more big money, while we suffer and die needlessly. Many large pharmaceutical companies that still exist today sold hemp based medicines in the 1800′s and early 1900′s. To learn more about my and hemp oil, visit www.PhoenixTears.ca and watch the documentary Run From The Cure. After a serious head injury in 1997, Rick Simpson sought relief from his medical condition through the use of medicinal hemp oil. Canada is in the middle of a CANCER EPIDEMIC!

How to make a Calendula oil infusion So finally I get around to finishing off this mini series on Calendula (pot marigold). This post will be on infusing oil, and next week we’ll have the one on salves. We’ve already covered the growing and drying Calendula: Oil infusion is as simple as can be. The resulting oil is medicinal. But lets step backwards a bit and talk about materials. Materials Your herb–Calendula or anything else– should be dry when you start this. Now, to be sure, I know folks who infuse fresh herbs in oil, and they’re not all dropping dead. Regarding Calendula specifically, you can soak either the petals alone, or the whole flower heads. Your oil doesn’t have to be super high grade. It doesn’t have to be olive oil, either, but it should be something good for the skin, like jojoba oil or grapeseed oil. The Soaking All you have to do is fill a very clean jar with a good lid about half way full of dried herb, then top it off with oil. This not an exact science, so don’t get worked up about exact quantities. Harvest

Pomegranate Found To Prevent Coronary Artery Disease Progression A new study published in the journal Atherosclerosis confirms that pomegranate extract may prevent and/or reverse the primary pathology associated with cardiac mortality: the progressive thickening of the coronary arteries caused by the accumulation of fatty materials known as atherosclerosis. Mice with a genetic susceptibility towards spontaneous coronary artery blockages were given pomegranate extract via their drinking water for two weeks, beginning at three weeks of age. Remarkably, the researchers also found that pomegranate extract treatment resulted in the following beneficial effects:
