Herbs A-Z: Citrus & Cinnamomum

This week's herbs are orange peel & cinnamon. Each one has multiple varieties: sweet orange, bitter orange, cassia cinnamon, “true” cinnamon, etc.Citrus x aurantium and C. x sinensis are the bitter and sweet orange, respectively. Not just an excellent flavoring agent (although that counts for a lot!), citrus peel makes a nice gentle digestive bitter and is a classic in cocktail bitter blends. It's great in mulled cider or wine, but also a nice cooling drink in the summertime. If you've only had citrus as juice – or, on the other end of the spectrum, orange oil as a cleaning product – we recommend drying your own organic citrus peels and working with them in tea!Cinnamomum cassia is sometimes just called cassia, or cassia cinnamon. C. verum is the “true” cinnamon, a bit sweeter and less astringent by comparison. Cinnamon is a great relaxant to the viscera and the lungs, one of our favorites in a wintertime blend for spasmodic coughs. It's got an interesting relationship with water and can act as an astringent or demulcent depending on how you prepare it. Cinnamon is also helpful for improving blood sugar regulation, and achieves this in the best possible way for long-term support.These quick plant profiles were done off-the-cuff & on-the-spot. If you enjoyed them, we have more! Our organized & comprehensive presentation of our herbal allies is in the Holistic Herbalism Materia Medica course. We have detailed profiles of 90 medicinal herbs!

One of the great teachings that I've received from the great Daoist and Chinese medical masters who taught me was the Jing energy which is black kidney energy and the battery pack of your life. This is the energy that drives us and gives us energy in the 12th round, 13th round, 14th and 15th round like Mohammed Ali versus the first round. Now, the first round is your Chi - that is your firepower and how you mobilize your immune system. Chi is how you mobilize your energy quickly but Jing is the long-term power and that is a kidney energy. - David Avocado Wolfe   Are You Stressed Out Lately?

Power Quotes From The Show Big Pharma's Strategy To Manipulate Our Free Will "For our freedom of health and sovereignty, we need to realize that we're under a Big Pharma takeover right now and they're using that weapon against us. In past ages, it was a military strategy and they've transformed it to be Big Pharma focused now. In order to not be hit with the karma of killing, maiming, destroying, and all of the things that come with a 'war' or 'tyranny,' instead of that they're trying to get you to agree to everything. Once they get you to agree to it, then it's your fault and the karma or the burden is off of them. That's spiritually what they're trying to do and that's what we call lesser magic: They'll tell you what they're going to do, then they'll get you to do it on your own free will rather them forcing you to do it."  - David Avocado Wolfe The Presence of Food, Superfoods, Herbalism, and Fasting In Your Life "Your medicine is always there; it has always been in front of you during your whole life. So, whatever is growing outside of your front door - let's say dandelions and thistles - there's a lot of those plants in front of people's homes because they're toxic and it's a sign that a person has a toxic liver. It's nature's way of telling you it's time to cleanse and heal your liver. Throughout our lifetimes, when we're a baby and young we need mostly food with a little bit of superfoods and herbalism. As time goes on, it becomes more about the food then superfoods then still the herbalism as a growing category. Eventually, when you get to my age in your 50s, it's all about the herbalism. I don't need food, I can fast - I should be fasting and I do that a lot." - David Avocado Wolfe The New Freedoms of 2022 "In 2022 I see a huge awakening happening. We will have real freedom; freedom of thought, freedom of media, and the freedom to move around. Instead of combating that which is the old system, we're just going to displace it by building a new one and that's what we're doing right now. It will be more freedom than we've ever known - it's epic and I am so charged by it. People are waking up and they're realizing what this means for our world." - David Avocado Wolfe Links From Today's Show M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Store - Save on our fave health products!

Happy new year! We're continuing our Herbs A-Z series in 2022, starting off strong with gotu kola & chicory. These widespread herbs both have long histories & active presents of medicinal application.Centella asiatica, known best as gotu kola, is today mostly thought of as a neuroprotective or even “nootropic” herb. It does indeed protect the nerves and brain, and help with cognitive health. It even has some similarities to ginseng and jiaogulan in terms of stress, immunity, and inflammation modulation. But it's also a good topical antimicrobial and wound-healer, with some similarities to marshmallow in that regard.Cichorium intybus is chicory – and also radicchio, endive, and frisee! They're all variants or cultivars of the same plant species. Chicory root is often roasted and taken as a coffee substitute, and that's perfectly valid. It's not caffeinated, but it does have the roast-y and bitter flavors of coffee. Plus, it's got food for your friendly gut flora (as long as you make a water preparation and don't filter too aggressively).These quick plant profiles were done off-the-cuff & on-the-spot. If you enjoyed them, we have more! Our organized & comprehensive presentation of our herbal allies is in the Holistic Herbalism Materia Medica course. We have detailed profiles of 90 medicinal herbs!

This week we highlight two herbs who are close to our hearts. Heather is a plant we both met together and have come to appreciate each in our own way. Centaury was “Ryn's first herb” in many ways and made a huge impact on his digestive health when he was originally learning herbalism from Katja. Both are friends we turn to frequently!Calluna vulgaris is heather, a lovely little pink flower from the highlands and moors. Its light, floral aromatic profile is subtle but delightful. It's an excellent fluid mover, helping disperse stagnations and improve internal flow. Heather supports kidney function and the elimination of wastes, while elevating mood and lightening mental state.Centaurium erythraea is another lovely little pink flower, actually! This one is bitter, with a capital BITTER. But don't let that scare you off! It's an incredible ally for those with weak stomachs. Centaury strengthens the stomach and digestion more generally, helping us get all the nutrition our food has to offer.These quick plant profiles were done off-the-cuff & on-the-spot. If you enjoyed them, we have more! Our organized & comprehensive presentation of our herbal allies is in the Holistic Herbalism Materia Medica course. We have detailed profiles of 90 medicinal herbs! Plus you get everything that comes with enrollment in our courses: twice-weekly live Q&A sessions, lifetime access to current & future course material, discussion threads integrated in each lesson, guides & quizzes, and more.If you have a moment, it would help us a lot if you could subscribe, rate, & review our podcast wherever you listen.

Deatra Cohen and Adam Siegel have explored the world of Jewish medicinal plant healers within the communities of the Pale of Settlement in Eastern Europe, and written a book to share their findings. As trained librarians and linguists, Deatra and Adam were uniquely suited to uncover these practices that lasted from the Middle Ages to the Modern Era, hidden by language barriers and obscure documents. The book is eye-opening and includes the first materia medica of 26 plants and herbs essential to Ashkenazi folk medicine. In this interview, Deatra and Adam discuss their research process, the legacy of Ashkenazi herbalism, and how their experiences as Jews interacted with their work.EPISODE NOTESOrder "Ashkenazi Herbalism: Rediscovering the Herbal Traditions of Eastern European Jews" from Bookshop.orgVisit the Ashkenazi Herbalism WebsiteJoin the Ashkenazi Herbalism Facebook GroupFollow Ashkenazi Herbalism on InstagramOn Wandering is going on hiatus!

This week's herbs are fluid-movers, with drying and tonifying effects. They're both excellent topical remedies which can also be helpful when taken internally. We prefer water or alcohol extracts of them in most cases, but birch makes a decent infused oil and calendula is excellent in oil.Betula spp. are birch trees – all the different kinds are similar. Their bark is famous for its salicylate content – mostly in the form of methylsalyicylate, which gives the bark its ‘wintergreen' scent and exerts substantial anti-inflammatory effects. Birch and wintergreen are our favorites for topical remedies because they have this active, volatile form of salicylate. Birch is also rich in betulin, a constituent with its own anti-inflammatory actions along with antimicrobial and cancer-fighting actions. (Betulin is also found in chaga, because the fungus absorbs it from the birch trees it grows on.)Calendula officinalis is one of the brightest, sunniest flowers around. Its capacity to move lymphatic fluids is fantastic medicine for fluid bloating in the belly, congested lymph nodes, and to help with “clean-up” work after an illness. It's a great antifungal herb which does not irritate the underlying tissue. And it's a hepatoprotective – an herb which protects the liver and helps it function optimally – as well!These quick plant profiles were done off-the-cuff & on-the-spot.

Today on Mushroom Hour we are joined by generational mushroom cultivator and medicinal mushroom alchemist Amir Karian. Amir grew up in a family of mushroom farmers who own and operate one of America's largest mushroom farms in Monterey Mushrooms and one of the largest mushroom spawn production companies called Amycel. But Amir's passion for mycology truly began when a journey of personal healing taught him first hand the power of medicinal mushrooms. He was compelled to share with others and being a part of a family of farmers was a blessing he couldn't overlook. He spent the next several years utilizing all of the experience and knowledge of mushroom farming that had been perfected over generations to research, develop, and grow the highest quality medicinal mushroom supplements - thus Alchemi Mushrooms was born. The driving ethos behind Alchemi's medicinal mushroom products is: "if it's not good enough to give to our families, we won't sell it."

This week's herbs from our apothecary shelf are shatavari and astragalus! These are a couple of slow-acting herbs for long-term work. Their restorative properties take some time for full effect, but they're worth building the habit. We prefer to prepare both of these as decoctions.Asparagus racemosus, called shatavari, is an Ayurvedic herb with cooling, moistening, and relaxant qualities. It's an adaptogenic herb which can improve the stress response – especially for people with dry constitutions. Shatavari is famous as an herb for the dry tendencies of aging humans, but it's really good for anyone prone to dryness, or for whom depletion has led to fatigue.Astragalus membranaceus is a Chinese herb which is mildly warming, moistening, and tonifying. It is an immune restorative herb, most appropriate when recovering from illness. It can also help build up immune reserves when one may go into a place where they're likely to be exposed to sick people. Astragalus maintains our immune defenses, but it's not an immune stimulant and it's not an herb we take when we're acutely ill.The formula we mentioned drinkin today includes: shatavari, astragalus, cacao nibs, hawthorn berries, ginger, cinnamon, & cardamom.These quick plant profiles were done off-the-cuff & on-the-spot. If you enjoyed them, we have more! Our organized & comprehensive presentation of our herbal allies is in the Holistic Herbalism Materia Medica course. We have detailed profiles of 90 medicinal herbs!

This week we have two more herbs from our shelf – rooibos & pleurisy root! We're working our way along the shelves and giving every plant a bit of attention, to explore the variety of helpful herbs that exist. It's easy to get stuck in a rut, so we're giving everyone an equal shot.Asclepias tuberosa is known as pleurisy root, and also butterfly weed. It's best-known as an herb for directing moisture and relaxation to the lungs, which can correct dry and tense conditions there. (“Pleurisy” is a drying-out of the pleura or ‘sac' that contains the lungs.) But this herb moves water in the body more systemically than just the lungs! It's helpful for lower-body edema as well.Rooibos, Aspalathus linearis, is a South African herb which has been popularized around the world as an alternative to black or green tea. It's powerfully antioxidant, and has traditional medicinal applications for digestive tension. Recent science has shown it beneficial for high blood pressure, uncontrolled blood sugar, and even as a chemoprotective agent. All that, and it's just plain delicious!Mentioned in this episode:Asclepias tuberosa profile at GoBotany.Holistic Herbalism Podcast, episode 18: Pleurisy in Daughter-CaregiversAspalathus linearis profile at PlantZAfrica.Mahomoodally MF.

Here we go with some more of the herbs on our apothecary shelves! This week our spotlight is on uva ursi & mugwort.Arctostaphylos uva-ursi, known as bearberry, uva ursi, or kinnikinnick, is a very astringent herb. It can knit wounds together, combat infections, and squeeze stuck fluids out of tissues. When we drink it it has a lot of action on the urinary system – it's famous for UTI – but it also helps with other stagnation & laxity conditions in the pelvic region.Our final Artemisia species (for now anyway!) is A. vulgaris, mugwort. This herb is fantastic for a host of troubles. Today we focused on “not the dreaming stuff, and not the emmenagogue stuff” because those are covered extensively in most discussions of mugwort. Instead we spent more time discussing this herb as a stimulating relaxant, as a mood lifter, and as an herb that can sharpen the mind and cut through mental fog.Mentioned in this episode:Arctostaphylos uva-ursi profile at GoBotany.Artemisia vulgaris profile at GoBotany.Mugwort for DreamingHerbs and Dreaming courseThese quick plant profiles were done off-the-cuff & on-the-spot.
