Letter for the editor August

Here we are ALREADY getting children ready to return to school.  This year has just gone by so quickly.  I feel sometimes like we are moving at nano second speed.

We are already past the middle of the year and moving into the last phase.  in a couple months we will be getting ready for the holidays.  I hope your year has been fulfilling and exciting as ours has been.

This month we have a new herb called Squawvine.

This herb is good for for anxiety, diarrhea, water retention (edema), low urine output, varicose veins, sleep problems (insomnia), congestive heart failure, kidney failure, liver failure, severe diarrhea (chronic dysentery), and colitis.

We are also discontinuing the Herbal Smoke Blends, they are now 50% off until gone.

Have a great month!
The Editor

Herb of the month title
Also known as- Tussilago farfara, Horsehoof, Coughwort, Fieldhove, Bullsfoot, Cleats, Clayweed, Tusilago, and Ass*s Foot.

Introduction:  Coltsfoot grows wild over much of Europe, and has been used traditionally to treat chest ailments for hundreds of years.  The fleshy leaves, stems and buds are also used in Asian folk medicine to treat asthma, dry cough and bronchitis.  Before the plant flowers, it resembles butterbur enough that old herbals caution against confusing the two.  At one time, smoking dried coltsfoot leaves was a recommended treatment for coughs, bronchitis and emphysema symptoms. 
Nowadays, the recommended preparation is a tea.  In fact, many herbal practitioners recommend preparing a thermos of coltsfoot tea before bed so that it is ready to be taken first thing in the morning when the coughs due to chronic lung problems are at their worst.
Constituents: mucilage, including numerous sugars; inulin; flavonoids, rutin, isoquercetin, tannin; pyrrolizidine alkaloids

Parts Used: Leaves, and sometimes the buds and flowers

Typical Preparations:
  Infusion, tea, syrup, capsules and extracts.

Summary: Coltsfoot is one of the most widely used herbs for the treatment of coughs and other lung complaints, and is the basis for many of the herbal cough preparations sold in Europe.  The chemical constituents have expectorant, anti-tussive, anti-spasmodic, demulcent, anti-catarrhal and diuretic properties, making coltsfoot extremely helpful in the case of racking coughs such as those that accompany chest colds, asthma and emphysema. 
However, the USDA classifies coltsfoot as an herb of "unknown safety", and the presence of minute amounts of pyrrolizidine alkaloids, which have been found to cause liver toxicity and cancer, has led to its banning in West Germany.  The amount of these alkaloids is extremely small, though, and the beneficial effects are generally believed to outweigh the miniscule risk.

Precautions:  Coltsfoot should not be used by pregnant women, as it may be an abortifacient, and the alkaloids seem to have a particularly harmful effect on the liver of the developing infant.  Pyrrolizidine alkaloids present in the plant are potentially toxic in large doses, but have not proven toxic in the doses usually used to treat coughs.  Still, it is recommended that coltsfoot tea or syrup not be used for more than 4-6 weeks at a time.

Herbal Uses Title
topic Title
Although coltsfoot is primarily used to treat bronchial problems in herbal medicine, the herb also has a number of other therapeutic uses.  The herb is a very useful demulcent (any substance or medicine that causes soothing)and expectorant and is among the most preferred remedies in Europe to cure chest complaints. 

Compared to the flowers, the leaves of coltsfoot are a favorite in Europe since they contain lesser concentration of thepyrrolizidine alkaloids.  On the contrary, in China, people have a preference for the flowers.  In any case, both the leaves as well as the flowers of coltsfoot are taken internally in the form of decoction to treat chest problems.
When coltsfoot is used in the form of a therapeutic cigarette or syrup, it helps to alleviate the symptoms of asthma.  In effect, the herb is used in the form of a particular cure for spasmodic coughs.
This herb can betaken along with other herbs like thyme, licorice and black cherry, all of which combine well with coltsfoot.

Coltsfoot has been categorized as a 'warming' herb in China, as the herb facilitates easing wheezing and coughing.

VAs mentioned earlier, coltsfoot is more popular as an herbal medication to cure bronchial congestions and coughs.  Precisely speaking, the botanical name of the herb *Tussilago' actually denotes *coughdispeller'.  Since the ancient times, coltsfoot has been employed by people for these remedial uses as well as to alleviate other respiratory problems. 

The major elements contained by coltsfoot include bitter glycosides,mucilage and tannins all of which contribute to the herb's anti-inflammatory attribute and make the herb effective for treating coughs.

In addition to the above-mentioned constituents, coltsfoot also contains harmful pyrrolizidine alkaloids that are known to be toxic for the liver. 

Nevertheless, a major portion of these alkaloids are obliterated when the herb isboiled to prepare a decoction.  The herb is considered to be safe when taken in small doses.

It may be noted that coltsfoot is especially effective in treating chronic coughs, like in the case of silicosis or emphysema.  While the leaves and flowers of the herb are generally used for therapeutic reasons, at times, the root ofcoltsfoot is also used for medicinal purpose.

Apart from providing relief from coughs and bronchial congestions, coltsfoot is also effective in treating other medical conditions, such as headaches, asthma, bronchitis, whooping cough, laryngitis as well as blockage of the nasal passage. Coltsfoot flowers are also used in making poultice, which is applied for relief from skin complaints, for instance eczema, sores, inflammations and even ulcers.

Usual dosage
Coltsfoot is used for therapeutic purposes in the form of a decoction as well as tincture. The decoction of this herb is used to treat coughs as well as other chest problems. Coltsfoot is often blended or taken in conjugation with other herbs in the form of tobacco in an herbal cigarette to provide relief from convulsions attributable to bronchitis and asthma. The tincture prepared with coltsfoot is taken in dosage of 1 ml (or 20 drops) twice every day to augment the health of the lungs. The tincture is especially effective for treating coughs when it is used in the form of a cough syrup. In Chinese Traditional medicine, the dosage of coltsfoot tincture is 1.5 - 9 g (or 1/16 oz to 1/2 oz).

Side effects and cautions
People taking herbal preparations with coltsfoot should be cautious regarding their use for any overdose of the remedy may result in toxic reactions. This is primarily owing to the fact that the herb contains pyrrolizidine alkaloids which are known to have detrimental effects on the liver (hepatotoxic). In effect, Germany has already prohibited the use of the herb for internal usage. Owing to high content of these harmful alkaloids in the flowers of this herb, they ought to be always essentially used under the supervision of a physician. Despite the fact that the leaves of the herb do not contain as high concentration of pyrrolizidine alkaloids, they also should not be taken without consulting a doctor and under his supervision.

How it works in the body
The flavonoids present in coltsfoot possess anti-inflammatory as well as antiseptic properties that help in providing relief from convulsions in the lungs in patients suffering from asthma and bronchitis attacks, thereby facilitating breathing. The polysaccharides present in the herb possess anti-inflammatory attributes that aid in relaxing the aggravated tissues of the lungs. In addition, the polysaccharides also work in the form of an expectorant and help to force out any surplus phlegm and mucous. Working in concert, flavonoids and polysaccharides present in coltsfoot enhance the immune system as well as encourage a vigorous respiratory system. While the pyrrolizidine alkaloids are believed to be toxic for the liver, by and large, they are obliterated when boiled to prepare a decoction.

Recipe Corner title
Sorbet Title

  •  65 fresh coltsfoot flowers
  •  1 cup organic cane sugar
  •  3 1/3 cups water
  •  1 tsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  •  1 egg white


  1. Make sure you have only the yellow petals from 65 coltsfoot flowers. (Remove the petals by rubbing the flowers between your thumb and forefinger. Make sure there are no green sepals in with the petals.)
  2. Place the petals, sugar and water into a pan. Bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes then remove from the heat and let steep for 20 minutes. Filter through a sieve and refrigerate the syrup until chilled. Add the egg white and whisk. Either place in an ice cream maker or in the freezer. As the sorbet churns, the egg white will trap air bubbles and this turns the sorbet white. If you have chosen the freezer method you will need to whisk briskly every five minutes for the first hour, then every fifteen minutes until the sorbet sets.

The sun and moon are opposite one another during a full moon, which creates a yin and yang effect between solar and lunar energy, so that harmony and order can be achieved.

This super-charged polar battle shines a bright light on the opposing forces of nature within us all, causing the dark and light to engage in a brutal (but necessary) battle for balance.
The moon rules our emotions, and the full moon can amplify them dramatically, which can lead to a mix of miracles, mayhem*and, at times, madness.

During a full moon, the radiant moon's glow in the sky is brighter than at any other time of the month.

This allows us an opportunity to see what is usually hidden, which includes the visible and the invisible; for example, becoming more aware of our own (and other's) physical behaviors and emotions.

Humans consist of approximately 70 percent water*and in a similar way to how the moon*s gravitational pull affects the ocean, it also pushes, pulls, and stirs up our emotions.
Within our relationships, this can cause existing issues to come to a head, and many find themselves experiencing tremendous personal shifts, which can lead to closer connections, break-ups, or some form of drama to erupt.

Due to the powerful lunar energy causing inner turmoil, many of us feel frazzled for the few days before and after the full moon. However, this is an opportune time to smooth out any ruffles and issues, particularly ones involving our loved ones.

Ironically, despite the fact that the moon*s hectic energy can cause romantic chaos, we desperately want and crave heart-centered connections. And yet, sometimes the opposite happens, and we take things the wrong way, pushing one another to the edge of extremes.
One thing for certain is that when the enchanting full moon illuminates and dazzles in the night sky, everything comes to the forefront to be seen.

Many of us spend full moon days introspecting and reflecting, so that we can identify and release what no longer serves us, and this serves as a catalyst for forward advancement in our romantic lives.

Although it can feel as though everything comes to a head at once, our minds will be crystal clear and will be busy logically working out which aspects of our lives we need to work harder on, and which we need to purge and let go of.

Full moons clear out old, negative energies to make way for fresh, positive, new beginning's which is why we often feel edgy, triggered, and quite argumentative during this period, as we go through an emotional unearthing and cleansing phase.

Past emotions may surface, so that they receive the chance to be healed and resolved; therefore, anything that is lingering in our hearts and minds will likely find their way to the surface.
We may find ourselves reaching out to those we*ve been temporarily estranged from. This is a vulnerable period for many who are highly sensitive to the moon*s energy*and though vulnerability is often seen as a weakness, it humbly draws us to our knees and opens our hearts.

Vulnerability isn't a state for the fainthearted; therefore, if we are willing to abandon our ego and communicate authentically, vulnerability can be one of our greatest allies and strengths.
Full moons are typically the days when we find out what other people think of us, and this can work both ways' positively or negative

The reason for this is that we are generally less fearful when the moon is full above us, and this allows us to express our deepest heartfelt emotions*either by sharing secrets with a close friend, confessing how we truly feel to a loved one, or letting those dearest to us know how much they mean.
However, while we are under the full moon's spell, we may also find ourselves projecting our anger or irritation onto others, or find that other people are projecting their frustrations onto us.

Usually, people find that they struggle to contain what they've been thinking or feeling when the full moon arrives, and they uncontrollably churn out harsh words that they later wish they had kept to themselves.
This is why it is vital during this period to meditate often and remain grounded*as, otherwise, we risk absorbing the emotions of those around us.

If we do not remain in the present moment during a full moon, we will end up carrying other people's emotional loads and along with the weight of our own emotions, we could easily become overwhelmed and fatigued by it all.

On a full moon, it is highly recommended to refrain from being pulled into heated arguments and disagreements with those around us. It usually feels like we are more irritable than usual during the full moon, though what*s actually happening is that our intuition spikes, we are far more hypersensitive, and our awareness of everything occurring in our lives is heightened. Therefore, we are simply noticing the things that existed throughout the rest of the month, but subconsciously, we've turned a blind eye.

During a full moon, insights arrive in sudden bursts of information providing liberating answers to the silent questions we have been deliberating in our minds.

This supports us in getting to the root of what causes persistent patterns, unhealthy habits, and destructive dynamics within our relationships.

Many of us feel empowered during a full moon to be authentic in our dealings with loved ones and to find our voice and frankly speak our truth.

The most important thing to remember is that if we want do not want to burn bridges, we must try to be compassionate, so we can express our thoughts and feelings with tact and care, rather than through irrational, emotion-fueled outbursts.

The full moon phase encourages us to dig deep into our souls.

This takes us through a beautiful meta- morphosis as we purge the huge mass of built-up feelings and emotions. all the thoughts, beliefs, and truths that we normally try to reject or deny forcefully spill out.

Whenever we are faced with extremes, we also receive the opportunity for dramatic transformation. Therefore, as much as full moons feel turbulent, they always serve our best interest and are a vital component for our personal growth and for reaching the highest version of ourselves possible (if we are willing to pay attention and not get caught up in the intensity). When awareness is heightened, we feel drawn to assess our wants, needs, and what it is that we desire within our relationships.
We can waste vast amounts of energy due to suffering for what we no longer have or what we wish for in the future.

Many of us notice the impact of the full moon up to five days before and five days after it peaks' though generally, it is at its most intense on the day before, the day of its fullness, and the day right after The moon is known to greatly impact our romantic relationships; however, we will likely also experience similar intense communications within our relationships with friends and family members.

The thing to remember is to communicate with loving-kindness and to listen intently before choosing to respond gently, rather than with angry, knee-jerk reactions.
