April 2011 Cayenne Pepper for Acute and chronic conditions
Hello fellow Elks, the next 1st Friday of the month I will be at a
table in the Atrium area offering tips on self care that you can do at
home. This month is all about Cayenne Pepper as a major first aid tool
and circulatory manager.
If someone has an heart attack or a stroke, wouldn’t it be very
helpful to know what to do besides call 911? After you call 911 while
they are on their way you can be proactive for the victim by giving
them cayenne orally.
It would be best to have a preparation ready (which I will show you
how to make on Friday April 1st during the monthly Fish Fry).
If you don’t have a prepared preparation.
1) Go into the kitchen and find cayenne pepper (most kitchen have it)
2) Quick as possible get a cup, pour the cayenne in and add water,
mix, and give them it orally.
3) That might sustain them until help arrives.
That way you don’t have to feel totally helpless as your loved ones
life is compromised.
Cayenne is a circulatory food herb that is very powerful and has many
medicinal uses. I will show you more uses at the talk on Friday Fish
night, I don’t go anywhere without it.
I hope this information is helpful to you, if you want to learn more
see you at the Health Corner!
Health To The Elks!

This months topic is “How To Create Weight Loss” Herbal secrets to transition the body into balance, for ideal individual weight, which is way different then a Diet. Most Diets have you lose weight, lose health, get sick, and give up.
A better plan is to work with your individual body and lifestyle. To integrate lifestyle changes not force them upon you unnaturally, because that is just no fun and the weight usually comes back.
There are individual programs that work naturally and are easy, if it is not easy people quit, we all know that creating ideal weight in such a abundant society is not easy at all.
So lets make it easy, get results and go from there.
You are welcome to come join me and others at the monthly Elks Health Corner on the first Friday of the month during the fish fry in the atrium. You can enjoy your meal and learn tips on health that you might not know is available. It is not about giving up the foods you enjoy, it is about helping your body with your choices.
Knowledge with action is power.

Equal Parts (except the Habaneros)
1. Garlic, a few bulbs
2. Ginger, a large root

4. Horseradish root, a large root
5. White Onion, a couple large bulbs or a few smaller ones
6. Raw unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar; this is the base of the tincture. 1-2 bottles depending on how much you are making

After gathering the herbs:
Peel the onion and garlic, chop ingredients somewhat so they will blend better.
Place all ingredients in a blender, cover herbs with apple cider vinegar, fill till it floats, blend until everything is thoroughly chopped and appears pulpy.
Pour mixture through a cloth or strainer. Squeeze the “juice” into a large bowl
Transfer the tincture into a glass bottle or jar with a tight lid and label it with the date it was made along with the ingredients
Store in a cool, dark place such as a cabinet or shed.
It is typically ideal to make your herbal tinctures on the NEW MOON, and pour them off on the
FULL MOON. It is also a good idea to let the concoction “brew” for about 2 weeks or even longer, shaking the jar at least once daily. However, this recipe is also very effective if needed to be used immediately.
Health is not a commodity, you have to pay back what you withdraw or expect from your body, make the balance happen by proactive nurturing behaviors and your benefits are huge. Enjoy, I a look forward to serving you with more information in the near future. Because it is not about giving up anything it is about integrating health into your lifestyle, and everything will balance itself out.
May we all be blessed with good health.

USING BULK HERBS
Using cut and sifted herbs
A tea is made from soaking herbs in water with the intent to drink it. This is one way to use bulk herbs in the cut and sifted form. You can use a single herb or a combination of herbs. There are a few things to take into account when making tea. Leaves and flowers are treated differently than roots and bark. A hot infusion is the standard way of making tea. It is a quick way to use any herb or herb combination by pouring water over them and letting them steep for 10-20 minutes. Continuously boiling an herb, unless it’s a root or bark, will destroy much of the flavor and healing qualities. Aromatic herbs have volatile oils (i.e. Peppermint, Lavender, and Chamomile) and are best put to use by making a cold infusion so as to retain their medicinal properties. If heat is used, herbs should be covered while they steep. Otherwise those flavors and healing properties will quickly evaporate. Herbs where the roots and bark are best used by soaking them for a few hours and then simmering them for 10-20 minutes after the water boils to extract all of the medicinal properties out of them.
Tinctures are concentrated herbal extracts that often have alcohol as the solvent. Making tinctures can be a complicated subject. The simplest way to make a basic tincture is to combine your herbs (either powdered or cut and sifted) and place it in a large jar that can be closed tightly. add enough 80 proof alcohol (vodka) to cover the herbs. Close the jar and mix well. Add a bit more alcohol if needed. The level of liquid should be ½ inch above herbs. Label the jar. Keep the jar closed tightly. Shake the jar frequently for 14 days. Press the liquid from the herbs using a muslin cloth. Save and bottle the liquid. Always remember to label and date your tinctures.
Fomentations are a preparation that allows herbs to be absorbed through the skin. It is prepared by first making a strong tea from. A clean cloth is then dipped into the warm tea and applied to the skin. When it cools, the cloth must be wrung out and dipped again to keep it warm. The fomentation should be applied for several hours at a time. Redness of the skin is normal and indicates increased circulation, so do not discontinue unless skin feels painful.
Using powdered herbs
Encapsulating is a main reason to buy powdered bulk herbs. One pound of powder makes about 1000 to 1200 capsules in the 00 size. There are many encapsulators on the market. We sell The Capsule Machine because we feel like it is the easiest and most efficient way to start encapsulating your own herbs. Directions on how to encapsulate the herbs depend on the machine you buy. Instructions are usually included with the encapsulating machines.
Always remember to label and date the storage jars of your capsules.
A bolus is a suppository. A bolus can be made by combining powdered herbs with melted or soft cocoa butter or coconut oil. Use a low heat, don’t allow it to burn or bubble when melting it. Mix the herbs a little at a time into the melted cocoa butter or coconut oil until they are firm and refrigerate for two hours. I have found that a 2:1 ratio is best. Use 8oz of cocoa butter or coconut oil to 4 ounces of powdered herbs. If the mixture is too thin, add more powder. If it is too thick, add some more oil. Allow the mixture to cool enough that it can be handled without causing a burn. Roll out into a long narrow strips and cut one-inch-long pieces. Wrap each bolus individually (in wax paper) and put in the refrigerator to harden. Allow the mixture to come to room temperature before use. Boluses are inserted into the rectum for treating ailments such as hemorrhoids and into the vagina for treating vaginal infections and irritations. Use boluses at night. It will melt with body heat, so take care to protect clothing and bedding. Many herbalists believe that the bolus should be washed away the following morning by douching the herbs out. From my experience I don’t think that it is necessary. They will come out naturally. You will need a sanitary napkin or something to catch the herbs as they drain.
A poultice is similar to a fomentation, except that plant parts are used rather than liquid extraction. They are used to for circulation, appease aches and pains or draw impurities out through the skin, or to assist in breathing depending on the herb chosen. Mix herbal powder with a small amount of boiling water. Apply the pulp directly to the skin, as hot as can be tolerated, holding it in place with a gauze bandage. If the paste is likely to irritate the skin, apply it between two layers of cloth. Poultices need to remain in place for long hours. They are generally more active than fomentations. Once it cools change the poultice. Apply as hot as tolerable. Please make sure you don’t burn yourself.
There are so many uses for bulk herbs. Often times using bulk herbs is the best way to help facilitate healing. By following the instructions above we can empower ourselves to take our healing into our own hands.
